I'm glad to say that I managed to call all three results yesterday; nobody else got more than two.

Some people (well, one person) asked about the standings so far. By dint of answering my own questions diligently, I am currently in the lead after the first 32 matches; but it's all to play for. 128 out of 212 predictions have been correct so far, just over 60%. Congrats to dave_gallaher for his hat-trick, and thanks to all who have participated so far.
