Honour & Glory

This  year’s UEFA European Championship is finally over … and … we have a winner!

Congratulations to Lea for a fabulous victory!

Congratulations also to Bernd K. and Janine for the ranks, especially to Janine who was in the lead for almost half of the championship. I can only repeat what I already said after the group stage: quite an impressive show by some of you.

Down below is the final overview on player points/ranks.
As usual, you find all the details (schedulestandingsmatchboards, yes there’s multiple; scoreboard; and alternative counting) in the Honour & Glory section.


Honour & Glory

The group stage is over, 36 out of 51 matches played and 20 people have placed bets in this  year’s UEFA European Championship.

Congratz to Bernd K., Janine, Lea and Michael for taking the lead after this initial step of the tournament. Quite an impressive show by some of you, I have to admit. Down below is the overview on player ranks after each match. As usual, you find all the details (schedulestandingsmatchboards, yes there’s multiple; scoreboard; and alternative counting) on the Honour & Glory section.

Looking forward to an exciting round of 16!


H&G – FIFA World Cup

What to say? I guess we all agree that this year’s FIFA World Cup had quite some excitement. Not only on the Honour & Glory side, but also on the football side as well ;)

Jokes aside … Germany is now on par with Italy in having four titles (only Brazil has five), Klose is now the sole top goalscorer and I won H&G :)

I guess, I should thank everyone for taking part in this year’s Honour & Glory highlight and congratulate especially Teresa and Anne for their second and third place, respectively. Your trophies are waiting for you!

Besides that, we had a new all-time high in the number of participants (21, with an average of 16) and a couple of achievement that deserve to be mentioned. Michael and Teresa managed to gain points in eight consecutive matches. Bernd, Carsten and Michael even got three consecutive matches right to the exact score. Anne lead the board for in total 37 matches, though wasn’t in the top three as much as Teresa and me (56 matches). In any case congratz for these records as well. You can find those and more below the now final standings table, matchboard and scoreboard. The (relatively) new football all-time stats now also includes the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

As you might have seen already, I also introduced the new bets view in the matchboard, which since this year’s semi finals shows the bets of everyone as soon as the match started.

H&G – Group phase stats

The first 48, out of 64, matches have been played, the group phase is over. Time for another little review …

With one or two exceptions, not too much changed since the end of the first game day. The top four is still the top four, just with a little reordering in the positions. Same goes for the bottom, maybe with the exception of someone who apparently forgot to place his/her bets after match 30!? Nothing too exciting happened in the middle of the table. You can check the development in the recently added place-after-match view on the matchboard (in fact only of a couple new views).

Also in the records section, we are essentially looking at the same names as before.
Here’s the links to the standings, matchboard and scoreboard just after the group phase.

To help you getting into the top three, I added some team statistics on the schedule & bets page. Simply click on a row and you will see details on how the according teams performed earlier in the event. Hover over the numbers to get even more details.

Last but not least, I am considering to launch a new bets view on the matchboard during the end of this or in the next tournament. It would show all bets of all players, including the ones of matches that already started.  Depending on your positive/negative FEEDBACK, it might come online at some point.

Good luck in the second stage of the World Cup!
