Predicting Good Things

A World Cup prediction game and a chance to be our football writer… oh, how we spoil you.

to’s World Cup prediction pool – code: hobspays

World Cup year is exciting isn’t it? The fantastic Nike adverts, the last minute injuries to German captains, and the undermining of England’s chances by the friendly-fire of the British media. However, an unavoidable and tedious aspect is the need for those employed by Heat magazine to feel the need to start chucking in their two cents regarding the perils of the Lampard/Gerrard ‘axis of evil’ in centre-midfield.

Luckingly, just in the nick of time, Sport Guru have added the World Cup to their already fiendishly addictive range of prediction games, and we can now separate the knowledgeable from the bandwagon jumpers. We at Fingertips have had our working schedule seriously threatened all year by the need to make our predictions for the Guinness Premiership, the World Twenty20, and the Super 14 competition. The World Cup will surely tip us over the edge into doing very little that’s actually work related.

Adding to the excitement, we’ve also decided to use the competition to find our new football writer for next season. The winner, or whoever finishes second to a very over-confident Fingertips Editor, will have the opportunity to have their weekly column published on Fingertips for the duration of the next domestic football season. If you’re a budding Martin Samuel, Henry Winter or Oliver Holt, better get yourself over to SportGuru and sign-up to our ‘’ pool using the pool code ‘hobspays’.

So, if you know your Italian full-backs from your unused Honduran substitutes, it’s time to prove it. Best of luck to everyone, if you’re not able to follow that incredibly simple set of instructions then Fingertips staff are ready to help you at, just remember to include the word ‘SportGuru’ in your subject bar.
