Premier Showdown - Oct 20-21
Plenty of correct results around last weekend but the key to success was getting the score bang on, and Tommy Smyth took the round by a point with two bang on. The correct score at Spurs v Villa was crucial for Tommy and made sure that current champion Dale Johnson was left languishing at the foot of the table. Joining us for the next round of games is Jonathan Lemor who becomes our first ever Showdown entrant from Peru! Jonathan, who lives in Lima, tells us: "I am 24 years old and have been living in Peru for six months. I am a huge fan of Barcelona since the time I lived there for a year during a study abroad about six years ago. I watch every game and try to travel to Barcelona once a year for a good Champions League match. "I work at ATV Deportes in sports broadcasting and love it! My favorite Premier League team is Manchester City, and I consider myself knowledgeable about soccer and think I could beat the scores posted by the experts. I love sports so much that I even studied Sports Management at UCSB in California." Game on!
For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on Press Pass' Tommy Smyth and ESPN journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.
Points are then awarded as follows:
• Three points for a correct result and scoreline
• One point for a correct result
After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
Dale just holds off Tommy to take a much needed victory and bring himself back into the game.
