The final results of the prediction game will be revealed before the match tomorrow.

Meanwhile, football means stats nerdery. Hurray!

There was a tiebreaker question as to how many yellow/red cards there will be in the tournament, and the spread of answers is shown in the chart below.


As you can see, the range went as low as 9 (faith in humanity) to over 400 (world weary).

The current actual count, with two games to go (I suppose we have to acknowledge today’s 3rd/4th playoff) is 259.

Although there is nothing in it other than a prize of shallow vanity, the prediction game entrants in with a shout of getting nearest to the tiebreaker are:

243 Matthew Woodeson
249 DK
252 david hickson

Unless there is 10 card bloodbath, David Hickson will officially be the prediction game’s very own Mystic Meg
