We’re Live!

The inaugural (and quite probably only) Flat Oeuf World Cup sweepstake draw will take place in approximately 30 minutes time and you can follow all the action, as it happens, right here.

Of the 32 teams that are taking part in the competition, 24 will be randomly allocated — two each — to the following 12 people who have entered the sweepstake: Caspurs, DAVID, Flat Oeuf, Freund or Foe, McG, Ronwol, SpurAndy, SpursNut, Spurstacus/Jonspur/Fat Bertha/Jonjo Spurvy/Whateverthehellelsehedecidestocallhimself, StillNilNil*, Superspoz and Unkle Taff.

The eight teams not initially allocated will be held back and distributed at the conclusion of the group stages so that those unfortunate enough to have drawn a pair of duds during the group stage will (barring a freakish set of results) still have an interest in the knockout stages. Obviously, if any of those eight teams doesn’t make it through the group stage then they will not be allocated for the knockout stage. Priority for this secondary draw will be given to those participants who have seen both their teams knocked out during the group stage.

No participant can have more than two teams at any one time and the trading of teams is strictly prohibited.

So, talk amongst yourselves for a bit whilst the final preparations are taking place. Kick-off is at 11am (GMT).

* Whilst StillNilNil didn’t actually enter the competition, I needed to make the numbers up to 12 and, knowing how much he loves international football (and the World Cup in particular), it would have been plain wrong to have left him out of the fun.

        • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 10:41 am

                    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:01 am

  • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 10:42 am

    Your early! I’m not ready yet, my suit hasn’t arrived, and the beautician says she needs another 10 minutes (I know you can’t improve on perfection), but it makes me feel worth it…

    • Ronwol1960-61 11/06/2018 at 10:44 am

      (Coif,Coif!!!!)

  • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:01 am

    COME ON!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:02 am

    I should have pointed out in the introduction that the draw has been fixed arranged so that no participant will have two teams in the same group.

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:03 am

      Diabolical!!!!!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:03 am

    Flatty. And Flatty has drawn…

      πŸ™

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:07 am

    Ron’s next out of the hat.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:07 am

      It’s Poland for Ron.

      Good luck there, mate.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:08 am

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:12 am

      …and rAndy is reunited with an old Spurs favourite — it’s Luka Modric’s Croatia.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:13 am

        Taff you should do this for a living

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:13 am

    Caspurs gets…

        2 weeks fully paid

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:15 am

        That’s an anagram of Caspurs.

      • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 11:15 am

        Yay, I here it’s nice there this time of year.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:14 am

    FoFfy’s next out of the hat and he’s drawn…

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:15 am

      0-0

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:16 am

      …Saudi Arabia.

      Well if nothing else at least you have an interest in the first game, mate.

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:16 am

        Stone me!

        • Fat Bertha 11/06/2018 at 3:22 pm

          Haha!

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:17 am

        Camel you Spurs!!!!

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:16 am

      …for 67 years.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:16 am

    Big D. This one’s for you…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:17 am

      …ooh, Belgium. Tasty.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:18 am

        Its BELGIUM

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:17 am

    Nilly gets…

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:18 am

      arrested

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:19 am

      …another team with a link to Spurs — South Korea.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:19 am

        The only other team with Seoul

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:19 am

    That just leaves Nutty…

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:19 am

      …shell-shocked.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:20 am

      I don’t believe it. Nutty’s drawn Christian Eriksen’s Denmark. Got to be pleased with that draw, haven’t you?

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:21 am

        Taff you sound like Martin Tyler

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:22 am

        Well, technically…

        • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:23 am

          I hope you lot dont get too many corners

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:24 am

    Right. That concludes phase one. Onto phase two. All the participants names have gone back into the hat and another 12 teams will be drawn. First up this time round is … Nutty!

    Last one out in phase one, first one out in phase two. Now remember Nutty’s already drawn Denmark which means he can’t draw France, Australia or Peru this time round.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:24 am

      He’s drawn Sweden.

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:26 am

        That’s another Scand(inavian)al.

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:25 am

      Have I won yet?

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:25 am

        You get all the vikings mate!!

        • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:26 am

          Scandlenavya

    • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:25 am

      Jeepers Taff, you’ve actually put some work into this. Where’s the live feed?

  • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:24 am

    Argie-Bargie, let’s have a party

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:25 am

    Ron’s second team is coming right up. And it is…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:26 am

      …Morocco.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:27 am

        Turf Moorish

    • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:26 am

      Persia?

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:26 am

    Nilly next.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:27 am

      And Nilly’s drawn … Switzerland.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:28 am

        Its perfect for Still Nil Nil Neutrality

        • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:29 am

          Zero chance of winning

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:28 am

        If there is a war all the top German players will end up there

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:28 am

    With England, Brazil, Spain, Portugal and Uruguay still to come, Caspurs is next up. And he’s drawn…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:30 am

      …France! Why do I keep forgetting about France?

      Well at least that means someone will be happy with the draw. Remember it was France who Cas tipped as likely winners not so very long ago.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:31 am

    FoFfy next.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:32 am

      And FoFfy’s drawn Japan.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:32 am

        He is going to nippon down the pub

      • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:33 am

        Sushi you later

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:32 am

    Me now. Fingers crossed…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:33 am

      I’ve just checked. The one team I can’t draw is…

      …England.

      Looks like I’ll have to settle for…

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:34 am

        West Bromwich Albion!

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:34 am

        …Senegal.

        Tunisia and Senegal.

        Who came up with this stupid idea?

        • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:35 am

          You and Ron can run your own ACN.

          • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:36 am

            It was just a gambia

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:33 am

      Yeah, right!

  • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 11:32 am

    Arghhhh, just realised I’m missing it!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:35 am

    Spurstacus now. And his second team is…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:36 am

      Spain.

      The spawny git.

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:36 am

      Brentford, we all know that one. Next.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:37 am

    Superspoz next.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:39 am

      And Superspoz gets … Portugal.

      First Germany now Portugal. Fakinel, make.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:39 am

        How much did you get Taff????????????

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:39 am

    Flatty now.

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:40 am

      Oeuf to Flatty!

    • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:40 am

      Eventual winners, England

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:40 am

      Flatty gets Russia.

      Serves him right for pulling Argentina in phase one.

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:40 am

        Putin Argentina!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:41 am

    rAndy next.

    rAndy’s already got Croatia, remember. He’s now also got…

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:41 am

      Montenegro

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:42 am

      Brazil.

      πŸ™

      • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:42 am

        Didnt they play each other recently?

      • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 11:44 am

        Get in!

        • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:45 am

          Get AHT!

          • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 12:06 pm

            Oeuf with his head!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:43 am

    McG is the penultimate name out of the hat. So sorry you had to work and miss this, by the way.

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:44 am

      It’s Mexico for McG.

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:44 am

        Another anagram. What are the odds?

  • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:43 am

    I get Ashkenazi and Sephadim

    Im with my people.

    • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:45 am

      I recommend Sudocream.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:44 am

    Which leaves Big D as the final name out of the hat for the group stages. And Big D has drawn…

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:46 am

      Thanks you B*stard!

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:45 am

    …Australia.

    Well at least you’ll always have Belgium, mate.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:48 am

    And that concludes the draw for the group stage. The following teams have not been drawn and, should any (or all) of them make it through to the knockout stage they will be allocated to those of unfortunate enough to have drawn the likes of Tunisia and bloody Senegal:

    Uruguay, Iran, Peru, Iceland, Nigeria, Serbia, England and Colombia.

    • Ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 11:50 am

      Good idea Taff and well done.

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:54 am

        Cheers mate.

  • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 11:48 am

    Well I for one would like to commend Uncle Taff for a superbly run draw.

    Psst, cheques in the post…..

  • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 11:50 am

    The rest of day will be so dulll now.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 11:52 am

    Flat Oeuf

    Jeepers Taff, you’ve actually put some work into this. Where’s the live feed?

    I’ll have you know I spent … minutes yesterday figuring how to do this.

    • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 11:56 am

      Bloody great job, mate. There was actually a palpable feeling of ennui during the draw!

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 12:00 pm

        I see that the Boy is also conducting a World Cup sweepstake. I’m willing to bet his draw is/was nothing like what you’ve just witnessed today.

        • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 12:03 pm

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 12:11 pm

    So, to summarise, this is how we stand for the group stage of the tournament:

    Caspurs: Costa Rica & France
    DAVID: Belgium & Australia
    Flat Oeuf: Argentina & Russia
    Freund or Foe: Saudi Arabia & Japan
    McG: Panama & Mexico
    Ronwol: Poland & Morocco
    SpurAndy: Croatia & Brazil
    SpursNut: Denmark & Sweden
    Spurstacus: Egypt & Spain
    StillNilNil: South Korea & Switzerland
    Superspoz: Germany & Portugal

      How about you give 1 to HD and Sexy

  • HD 11/06/2018 at 12:24 pm

    Jealous, yes I am. However my Mom won’t let me bet so it’s OK.

    • Superspoz πŸ† 11/06/2018 at 12:33 pm

      Someone give this man a team or two.

      • HD 11/06/2018 at 12:41 pm

        Not a problem as I am a bit late to the party. I will be Mark Clattenburg, however; and resolve any disputes.

        • Superspoz πŸ† 11/06/2018 at 12:44 pm

          It’s not up for debate HD.

  • BertieBigB*llocks 11/06/2018 at 12:41 pm

    Just a quick test to see if anyone can post here.

    • HD 11/06/2018 at 12:43 pm

      Apparently

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 12:50 pm

      That was me logging on from a fake IP address using a fake name and a fake email address to see if anyone who stumbled across the bloeug could post here.

      And it seems that they can.

      • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 12:55 pm

        Oooh, what fun!

    • ronwol196061 11/06/2018 at 1:04 pm

  • Sexy Beast 11/06/2018 at 1:05 pm

    Sweepstake update.

    Following an emergency meeting by the Sweepstake Committee (i.e. me) it has been agreed to admit two late entries into the competition — namely Horndog and Sexy Beast.

    Both participants will receive two teams each from the eight not so far allocated, which means that there will now only be a maximum of four second chances for those poor souls unfortunate enough to have drawn the likes of Tunisia and sodding Senegal.

    Right. Here goes…

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:42 pm

    Sexy Beast is first out of the hat, and he’s drawn (and if either of you draw England I shall be
    royally put out)…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:42 pm

      …Uruguay.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:43 pm

    Okay Horndog, Here’s your first team…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:44 pm

      Oh, f*ck.

      Take a wild guess…

      • HD 11/06/2018 at 1:45 pm

        The suspense is killing me. I would like to thank the committee and the academy.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:46 pm

    Horndog, your second team is…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:46 pm

      …Columbia.

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:46 pm

    Which just leaves Sexy Beast who has drawn…

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:47 pm

      …Nigeria.

      • Sexy Beast 11/06/2018 at 1:48 pm

        Brilliant πŸ‘πŸ€£

      • Sexy Beast 11/06/2018 at 1:49 pm

        Do forgive me for not running down the bookies and lumping on!

    • Sexy Beast 11/06/2018 at 1:47 pm

      ⏱

  • HD 11/06/2018 at 1:49 pm

    Is Oh f*ck any good?

  • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 1:49 pm

    That just leaves Iran, Peru, Serbia and Iceland … none of which I expect to make it through to the knockout stages anyway.

    So if anyone else wants to join in I’m happy to let them take their pick of what’s left.

  • HD 11/06/2018 at 1:52 pm

    Sexy Beast and I have just concluded a conference call and have agreed that at our next grand get together we will each buy an extra round since you fellas went to bat for us.

  • Freund or Foe 11/06/2018 at 2:09 pm

    Saudi and Japan? Fookin Saudi and dogshite Japan?
    See ya chaps, I’m off to DML ;-D

    • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 2:12 pm

      Tunisia and Senegal. I think I’ll come with you.

      • Freund or Foe 11/06/2018 at 2:17 pm

        Let’s have a loser side bet. Mine’ll get less points, score less goals and concede more goals than yours.

        • HD 11/06/2018 at 2:18 pm

          A Bacardi and Coke side bet, you’re on. πŸ‘

          • Freund or Foe 11/06/2018 at 2:30 pm

            Done!

        • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 2:24 pm

          According to FIFA, your two teams are ranked 30th and 31st of the 32 taking part in the competition.*

          If nothing else at least that’s put a smile on my face.

          * Tournament hosts, Russia, are officially the worst team taking part. That opening game against Saudi Arabia is threatening to be a real humdinger.

          • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 2:27 pm

            Following day, Spain v Portugal should be a goodun.

    • Freund or Foe 11/06/2018 at 2:12 pm

      I’d rather Dawg’s “Oh F*ck” than my pile o’ steamin.

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 2:16 pm

        Thank God it’s the taking part that counts, eh?

    • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 2:16 pm

      Look guys it really is all about the taking part. If there was anyway I could transfer over my little ole Brazil you know I would.

  • HD 11/06/2018 at 2:23 pm

    Thanks Taff for your efforts. This should be fun!

    • Freund or Foe 11/06/2018 at 2:31 pm

      Yep, good stuff Unk.

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 2:33 pm

        Did I point out anywhere that today was just the rehearsal? That the real draw will actually be taking place tomorrow?

  • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 2:52 pm

    Excellent news!….that HD and SB haven’t got a cat in hell’s chance of winning my prize.

    • HD 11/06/2018 at 2:56 pm

      ☹️

    • Sexy Beast 11/06/2018 at 2:57 pm

      Taff how much for Germany and Brazil?

      • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 3:03 pm

        Please check the terms and conditions of entry, namely that:

        “No participant can have more than two teams at any one time and the trading of teams is strictly prohibited.”

        • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 3:16 pm

          $19.99 it is then.

          • UnkleTaff 11/06/2018 at 3:17 pm

            If that’s an offer for Argentina I’ll take it.

            • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 5:10 pm

              Dream on, Taff. And, anyway, the rules don’t apply to you? Jeez.

  • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 2:57 pm

    My trophy cabinet and duster are already in place.

    • Flat Oeuf 11/06/2018 at 3:12 pm

      Your dusty trophy cabinet?

      • 61SpursNut 11/06/2018 at 3:21 pm

                  That’s garbage.

  • Fat Bertha 11/06/2018 at 5:13 pm

    Never been a big fan of Ian Wright, not because of his Arsenal connection, but after reading this: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-5827621/Stan-Collymore-involved-X-rated-race-row-old-rival-Ian-Wright.html he’s gone right up in my estimation (he’s still very low).

    • SpurAndy πŸ’ πŸ₯§ 11/06/2018 at 6:13 pm

      Was never a fan when he played football but quite like him now. He doesn’t speak with a forked tongue as far as I can tell.

  • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 6:31 pm

    AVB to RM. LOL…

            I’m getting into the spirit of things and supporting my sweepstake team. I admit the Gallic cockerel pleases me somewhat. πŸ‘

              Still can’t believe Sissoko isn’t in the team.

              • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 7:29 pm

                I still can’t believe Sissoko is a footballer..

                • Fat Bertha 11/06/2018 at 8:45 pm

                  He likes budgies and he likes a cockatoo.

    • Superspoz πŸ† 11/06/2018 at 10:06 pm

      Benthfc on Twitter is adamant Bale is coming. He is itk apparently. He’s used terminology such as “trust me” and “wait and see”.

      • Caspurs 11/06/2018 at 10:09 pm

        He’ll have to urn my trust foist.
