What is this?
Now in it's 7th season, the football prediction game is a game where we predict the results of competitive domestic and international football fixtures. Every week we post a few fixtures (suggestions always welcome in our general football/soccer thread) and then anyone can predict the results before the first match starts. After the weekend (usually) your scores will be published.
Copy the matches of this week in a reply, and append a:
- 1 if you think this match will end in a victory for the home team.
- 2 if you think this match will end in a victory for the away team.
- 3 if you think the match will end in a draw.
Team A - Team B - 1
Team C - Team D - 2
Before Wednesday end of the day - matches should be chosen and posted here.
Before the first match starts - all predictions should be in,
Before Tuesday end of the day - results should be processed.
Please use this thread only for announcing a new round, or posting a prediction. Use the general football thread for all other discussions: http://www.u2start.com/topic/3301/
"We took over this little hotel, that they call a riad, and set up the gear in the courtyard. So it was open, a square of sky over our heads. You can hear the call to prayer, birds flying around. Two swallows came back regularly to shit on Larry's drums."

The song 4th of July is named after the date of birth of Edge's first daughter. It was recorded by accident, Adam was playing some bass lines and Edge just jumped in, both unaware that Brian Eno was recording.
