    No. Although persistent drones (without good reason) may be black-listed for any future competitions.
  2. Bench World Cup 2018

    If only Argentina had managed to win their match, then Bae Dat would have won.... (I know.... 'ifs' and 'buts' don't matter). Looks like my whole family got beat in round 2! Must try harder for round 3.
  3. Bench World Cup 2018

    Group A final results for Round 2Nekonishiki (Russia): 1. Portugal, 2. Brazil, 3. Belgium, 4. Colombia, 5. Mexico, 6. Russia ®, 7. Serbia, 8. Saudi Arabia, 9. Peru ©, 10. Iran, 11. MoroccoComment: A 6-link chain is expected vs Crall (Egypt): 1. Spain, 2. Belgium, 3. Uruguay, 4. Portugal, 5. Switzerland, 6. Egypt ®, 7. Poland ©, 8. Panama, 9. Costa Rica, 10. Sweden, 11. Iran Jejima: If this were bench Sumo, I would say that both teams managers were impressive with their Ganbare line-ups! (Unbroken chain of winners, followed by all the losers), so there was nothing more that Crall could have done - his team was simply out-classed by Nekonishiki! Final score Nekonishiki 2-0 Crall (a direct result of the real match between their representative teams). Furanohana (Uruguay): 1 Portugal, 2 France, 3 Uruguay (R), 4 Japan (C), 5 Iceland, 6 Mexico, 7 Argentina, 8 Tunisia, 9 Russia, 10 Sweden, 11 Panama vs Atenzan (Saudi Arabia): 1. England, 2. Germany (C), 3. Russia, 4. Argentina, 5. Colombia, 6. Switzerland, 7. Nigeria, 8. Japan, 9. Serbia, 10. Australia, 11. Saudi Arabia (R) Comment: Costa Rica are going to beat Brazil 2-1. You heard it here first. Jejima: With Japan's draw (I think you can really blame Argentina's upset loss earlier, though), the win will go to Furanohana - but by how many goals? Furanohana scores a first goal in slot 3, and another goal with his (C) team Japan getting a draw in slot 4, as Atenzan's chain is broken. Furanohana's chain is broken in slot 5, so game over. Final score: Furanohana 2-0 Atenzan I am going to use Achiyama's excellent table (from Round 1) to update for after round 2.... Standings after Round 1 Standing Name GP W D L GS GA GD Points 1 FURANOHANA 2 2 0 0 5 0 5 6 2 NEKONISHIKI 2 2 0 0 3 0 3 6 3 ATENZAN 2 0 0 2 0 3 -3 0 4 CRALL 2 0 0 2 0 5 -5 0 Well, Furanohana and Nekonishiki have already booked their progress to the next round of the Bench World Cup. Atenzan and Crall have booked their places in the last 16 of the Bench World Saucer. Round 3 will be just about deciding seeding among these players for the round of 16 stages, as Furanohana will face Nekonishiki, and Atenzan will take on Crall (can either of these two get their first goal at this BWC?). I actually have round 3 line-ups from all three, but I am awaiting confirmation that the two line-ups sent in 3 weeks ago will not be modified, based on seeing form.
  4. Bench World Cup 2018

    In my post, I did write this.... With apologies to the Group H teams (Senegal, Japan, Poland and Colombia), Belgium (especially) and England (just about - not 100% sure about Colombia....), could probably expect to beat any of those four teams, and so might have their eyes on the quarter-finals. .....so, in my defence, I am not 100% sure about Colombia. Additionally, England has not been beaten in their last 12 matches (9 wins, 3 draws), so a bit of confidence around the team. Colombia's last 12 matches are 3 wins (including last night), 6 draws and 3 losses. So, maybe a draw in extra time, after which England will lose on penalties (as usual).
  5. Bench World Cup 2018

    Off topic conspiracy theory.... With England's 6-1 win over Panama, they are now tied with Belgium to top Group G on goal difference and goals scored. Both teams are assured of progressing to the round of 16. The winner of their game will be top of the group - but is coming top of Group G a good idea? The winner of Group G will play the second place of Group H. The winner of that match will play the winner of what could well be Brazil (E1) and Germany (F2). With apologies to the Group H teams (Senegal, Japan, Poland and Colombia), Belgium (especially) and England (just about - not 100% sure about Colombia....), could probably expect to beat any of those four teams, and so might have their eyes on the quarter-finals. They would probably prefer to face the winner of Mexico or Switzerland/Serbia (if that Brazil vs Germany match comes to pass), as the best way to progress to the semi-finals.... So, let's say that neither England nor Belgium want to come top of the group (Groups E and F will have copmpleted their third round matches before Belgium and England play) to avoid that possible Brazil/Germany quarter-final, and so both teams but out 'B' teams, and they play out a 0-0 draw.... Well, then top of the group will be decided on yellow/red cards. England currently has 2 yellow cards to Belgium's 3. Can you imagine in the last 5 minutes of the hypothetical 0-0 game, the instructions to the England team is to pick up two yellow cards to avoid coming top.... How would Belgium respond? It would seem a bit unfair if England (G1) were to face Colombia (H2) then Brazil (E1)/Germany (F2) (say), while Belgium (G2) faces Japan/Senegal (H1) then Mexico (F1)/Switzerland (E2), just because England had one less yellow card.... And yes, England currently tops Group G on Yellow card difference!

    I think you might be looking at the wrong table (Situation 3). I think Nekonishiki is calling it correctly (situation 9).
  7. Bench World Cup 2018

    Attention Group A players! (I already have Crall and Nekonishiki's round 3 line-ups, but they may change them, if they want to.) Being a family with two active babies, we tend to go to bed around 9pm these days, whenever possible. I don't think either of the 10pm matches (Hong Kong time) for the real Group A teams holds enough interest to keep me up, especially as the two teams that have progressed out of that group are already known. (The group B matches start at 2 am, so I will probably just watch the highlights tomorrow - I note that I will have to get up at 2am to watch the England vs Belgium match later in the week! ). For that reason, I am setting the Group A deadline to be three hours before the kick-off of Russia vs Uruguay tomorrow, so that I can send out the line-ups, before reading bed-time stories etc.... Thank you for your consideration.

    Group A update after 13 matches.... Round 2Nekonishiki (Russia): 1. Portugal, 2. Brazil, 3. Belgium, 4. Colombia, 5. Mexico, 6. Russia ®, 7. Serbia, 8. Saudi Arabia, 9. Peru ©, 10. Iran, 11. MoroccoComment: A 6-link chain is expected vs Crall (Egypt): 1. Spain, 2. Belgium, 3. Uruguay, 4. Portugal, 5. Switzerland, 6. Egypt ®, 7. Poland ©, 8. Panama, 9. Costa Rica, 10. Sweden, 11. Iran Jejima: After an impressive start by Crall, Nekonishiki is fighting back! This match will go to the wire, as we need to wait for the results of the Colombia vs Poland. If Colombia wins or draws, Nekonishiki will win, with an impressive (predicted!) 6 link chain. If Poland wins, Crall will be declared the victor. Obviously the Colombia vs Poland match is the key one of the final day of round 2 action. Furanohana (Uruguay): 1 Portugal, 2 France, 3 Uruguay (R), 4 Japan (C), 5 Iceland, 6 Mexico, 7 Argentina, 8 Tunisia, 9 Russia, 10 Sweden, 11 Panama vs Atenzan (Saudi Arabia): 1. England, 2. Germany (C), 3. Russia, 4. Argentina, 5. Colombia, 6. Switzerland, 7. Nigeria, 8. Japan, 9. Serbia, 10. Australia, 11. Saudi Arabia (R) Comment: Costa Rica are going to beat Brazil 2-1. You heard it here first. Jejima: I think Atenzan needs England (vs Panama), Colombia (vs Poland) and Senegal (vs Japan) all to all win their matched, if he is to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. If Japan manages at least a draw, Furanohana will be the winner. A draw is also still on the cards if Japan loses, and one of the other matches ends in a draw, with the other being a victory in Atenzan's favour. If England lose, then the win is (of course) easily handed to Furanohana. I think Furanohana retains the edge in this encounter, but Atenzan is still in with a shout. The key remaining match for this game, I think, is the Japan vs Senegal one.
  9. Bench World Cup 2018

    Group A update after 10 matches.... Round 2Nekonishiki (Russia): 1. Portugal, 2. Brazil, 3. Belgium, 4. Colombia, 5. Mexico, 6. Russia ®, 7. Serbia, 8. Saudi Arabia, 9. Peru ©, 10. Iran, 11. MoroccoComment: A 6-link chain is expected vs Crall (Egypt): 1. Spain, 2. Belgium, 3. Uruguay, 4. Portugal, 5. Switzerland, 6. Egypt ®, 7. Poland ©, 8. Panama, 9. Costa Rica, 10. Sweden, 11. Iran Jejima: This game is really exciting. An important match tonight is Belgium vs Tunisia. If Belgium loses, the match is over in Nekonishiki's favour. If Belgium draws, then both teams will score a goal. If Belgium wins, then Nekonishiki will need a Mexico win (playing South Korea today), to have a chance of winning this game. (If Belgium wins, and Mexico draws, Nekonishiki would still be able to eke out a draw. A Belgium win and a Mexico loss, and it is definitely a win for Crall.) I *think* Crall is currently in the driving seat, but that could easily change after today's results are in. By the way, I am impressed with the GBL (so far) by Nekonishiki. He has 5 losers at the end of the chain, and is well on his way to his predicted 6-link chain. Furanohana (Uruguay): 1 Portugal, 2 France, 3 Uruguay (R), 4 Japan (C), 5 Iceland, 6 Mexico, 7 Argentina, 8 Tunisia, 9 Russia, 10 Sweden, 11 Panama vs Atenzan (Saudi Arabia): 1. England, 2. Germany (C), 3. Russia, 4. Argentina, 5. Colombia, 6. Switzerland, 7. Nigeria, 8. Japan, 9. Serbia, 10. Australia, 11. Saudi Arabia (R) Comment: Costa Rica are going to beat Brazil 2-1. You heard it here first. Jejima: With Nigeria's victory over Iceland yesterday, Atenzan is still in with a shout. The key match up in today's schedule is Germany vs Sweden. If Germany lose, Furanohana can claim victory. If Germany draws, Furanohana will take a 2-0 lead, which will make things tricky for Atenzan. If Germany wins, Atenzan can still cling on to some hope of victory!
  10. Bench World Cup 2018

    I confirm that I made an error! This VAR is still not perfect. (I thought it did a great job denying Neymar a penalty yesterday, though, in the Brazil - Costa Rica match.) The score should be 1-0 to Finngall. I will now edit the above post.
  11. Bench World Cup 2018

    Group A update after 7 matches.... Round 2Nekonishiki (Russia): 1. Portugal, 2. Brazil, 3. Belgium, 4. Colombia, 5. Mexico, 6. Russia ®, 7. Serbia, 8. Saudi Arabia, 9. Peru ©, 10. Iran, 11. MoroccoComment: A 6-link chain is expected vs Crall (Egypt): 1. Spain, 2. Belgium, 3. Uruguay, 4. Portugal, 5. Switzerland, 6. Egypt ®, 7. Poland ©, 8. Panama, 9. Costa Rica, 10. Sweden, 11. Iran Jejima: The two wins in slot 1 cancel each other out. Crall is looking good with three winners in the top four slots - but needs a result from Belgium tomorrow. Nekonishiki has carefully put all of his losers at the end of the chain. His Russia (R) win in 6th slot looks very useful (it would score two goals) - if his chain remains unbroken that far.... The match in a few hours time between Brazil and Costa Rica is the key one for this match today. Furanohana (Uruguay): 1 Portugal, 2 France, 3 Uruguay (R), 4 Japan (C), 5 Iceland, 6 Mexico, 7 Argentina, 8 Tunisia, 9 Russia, 10 Sweden, 11 Panama vs Atenzan (Saudi Arabia): 1. England, 2. Germany (C), 3. Russia, 4. Argentina, 5. Colombia, 6. Switzerland, 7. Nigeria, 8. Japan, 9. Serbia, 10. Australia, 11. Saudi Arabia (R) Comment: Costa Rica are going to beat Brazil 2-1. You heard it here first. Jejima: It is an impressive early start for Furanohana! He has certainly (due to the 3rd slot) scored at least one goal - and is well placed to score some more. Due to Argentina's loss, Atenzan needs Japan to lose to Senegal to have any hope of winning this match - or of salvaging a draw. I suppose the key match (if you disregard Atenzan's prediction regarding Brazil and Costa Rica) happening today is the Nigeria vs Iceland. If Iceland win, then Furanohana will really be plying on the pressure! (Actually if Iceland wins today, the best result that Atenzan would be able to achieve would be a 1-1 draw - (it takes a bit of working out, but I am 99% sure that I am correct.) - but Atenzan would more likely lose.)

    Many thanks to all refiojis. (I do not have the time to fully check the line-ups for everybody, but they all look good at first glance.) I have gone through the matches, and with the use of VAR, (and confirmed with the refioji), I spotted that one reported goal was actually off-side! But the over-all result (a win) remained the same. Here are the official round 1 results. For the group tables, please refer to the individual posts by the respective refiojis. Round 1 Nekonishiki (Russia) 1-0 Atenzan (Saudi Arabia) Crall (Egypt) 0-3 Furanohana (Uruguay) Group B Fujiyama (Morocco) 0-6 Polimasa (Iran) chishafuwaku (Portugal) 2-1 Ganzohnesushi (Spain) Group C Nantonoyama (France) 2-2 Bozhanitakara (Australia) Kintamayama (Peru) 0-2 Haidouzo (Denmark) Group D Bae Dat (Argentina) 0-1 Jakusotsu (Iceland) Pitinosato (Croatia) 3-0 Tanetakahiro (Nigeria) Group E Jejima (Costa Rica) 2-0 Kuroelwin (Serbia) Krisachiyama (Brazil) 0-1 Finngall (Switzerland) Group F Andonishiki (Germany) 0-2 Shatsume (Mexico) Benihana (Sweden) 2-0 Chocshoporyu (South Korea) Group G Chijanofuji (Belgium) 3-0 Achiyama (Panama) Fujiko (Tunisia) 2-1 Boltono (England) Group H Maeden (Colombia) 0-1 Pandaazuma (Japan) Suwihuto (Poland) 1-0 Fi Lik (Senegal)
  13. Bench World Cup 2018

    I think it was this quote that Maeden (and later Pandaazuma) were refering to.... The 2nd match between droning Suwihuto and Maeden is too early to call.
  14. Bench World Cup 2018

    Here is the official final result.... Fujiyama: 1. Colombia, 2. Sweden, 3. Poland, 4. Germany, 5. Portugal (C), 6. Morocco (R), 7. Argentina, 8. Egypt, 9. Iran, 10. Saudi Arabia, 11. Switzerland Polimasa: 1. England, 2. Argentina, 3. France (C), 4. Poland, 5. Sweden, 6. Nigeria, 7. Iran (R), 8. Croatia, 9. Costa Rica, 10. Panama, 11. Switzerland Fujiyama's chain breaks in the first slot, and Polimasa scores a goal! Nothing happens in slot 2. In slot 3, Polimasa scores a second goal! Nothing happens in slot 4. Polimasa scores a third goal in slot 5! Nothing happens in slot 6. Polimasa amazingly scores two goals in slot 7! And another goal in slot 8! Then her luck runs out, as her chain is broken in slot 9, and the game ends. I make the final score: Fujiyama 0 - 6 Polimasa Omedetou for the big win! (Please can a senior refioji check my calculations, as I am feeling rusty - and let me know by PM if you disagree.)
