If you look at my own seedings in the predictions thread you will see small differences.


You were seeded high because you proved a great consistence in the hardest world cup ever.
Anyway seeding isn't a crystal ball! :) and avery players works as hard as possible to disappoint the seeding, except one!

it must be an extremely hard job to try and seed players who've either never been before or shown a lot of improvement (or decline maybe?) over the years, I don't envy anyone who has to do that.
I'm just praying that the new players aren't Gianni clones! :D

In the previous Iberian battle, Rodolfo beat me 9-1 or something :(


He's a bastard, isn't he? :wink:

Note that Lobber Lee Snow was one filthy goal from busting your seedings. 1 lob away...

I didn't play Lee so I didn't witness his playing style. Is he really a filthy one trick lobber, a prodigy of Steve Camber ?

haha, i think probably 35% of my goals were lobs... but maybe 60% of my shots ;)

i do like a lob, but i would say the diagonal and vertical swerve goal is my main party trick, but no one remembers them because of the rage that the lobs generate :D

Apart from that good work Gianni! Mille grazie!


Interesting: often players look at who is above and who is below. I more would look at who is in my seed, which is like to say:" Which players are considered to be at my same level?
In fact, if you look at this in that way, you would understand that if I would put the seed 1 in the last raw, it would have no difference in to balance the groups, as the would be balanced though.
The main aim of the seeding in fact is to group players of the same level to balance as most as possible the round one groups.


In retrospect I can now understand the way have done the seedings :D .
