Happy to go form 30th to 17th.  A top 20 is a MAJOR accomplishment for me here.  I suck at this game.  lol

EDIT: OK so I looked and I've had two hits (er.. misses) all year.  TWO.  And in the 10th and 14th spot.  And you are telling me 16 people have done better?  Bollocks.

 

You've actually had 3 hits (John McCririck in position 24 gets you a further 2 points, on top of the 16 for position 10 and the 12 for position 14).

FAO @Sir Creep. Drol is actually doing far better than anyone.

 

Drol's team

 

1)Donald Trump

2)Queen Elizabeth II

3)Paul Gascoigne

4)Linda Nolan

5)Dick Van Dyke

6)Olivia Newton-John

7)Betty White

8)Prunella Scales

9)Carol Channing DIED BEFORE GAME STARTED

10)Jimmy Carter

11)Benedict XVI

12)Vera Lynn

13)Prince Philip

14)Terry Jones

15)Olivia de Havilland

16)Kirk Douglas

17)Billy Connolly

18)Jill Gascoine

19)Ruth Bader Ginsburg

20)Jimmy Greaves

21)Henry Kissinger

22)Marieke Vervoort

23)Robert Mugabe

24)George Alagiah

25)Bill Turnbull

25) sub for Channing - Doris Day

 

No points for Channing obviously, so 1 point for Doris Day and 4 for Mugabe = -5 in total. Whereas just having someone in 10th place is 16 points if they died...

 

NOTE - Vera Lynn surprisingly high for a frail 102 year old. This thing ain't over yet.

Yep, joint 5th.

 

Now, we're joint much-lower-down-than-5th.

 

Cock and balls.

My highest hit so far. In hindsight, I've no idea why I put her where I did. Almost certainly I'll be out of the top 10 now.

I played the contrarian and bet big on Marieke and Tim Conway ( number 3 and 1 respectively).  And subsequently am losing big.  Aside from those 2, I think I have done rather well, but isn't that just the way? Hero or zero.

Huuuge bomb went off with Marieke Vervoort. 36 teams didn't waffle on picking the Belgian, and many of their hopes are now euthanized. One Vervoort picker who hasn't lost hope yet is drol, who picked her low enough to hang on to his lead...

Fail!

On the basis of your take one for the team inverse inverse, yet understandable because most of the inverse non-inverse picked her so you shouldn't have and didn't. (nobody gets an explanation of all the double negatives in this, can't follow it myself).

Yes, but relatively lowly on your list, most had her higher, (I climbed similarly due to her being 20th on my list)

Gosh I'm 5th. Barely anyone harmed in the process either.

I believe my score of 51 is in error and/or maybe includes Carol Channing by accident.

ive had three hits (VVT, Harper, Day) for 20-15-11.  That’s 46.  Not 51.

I have your team recorded as follows in my database. Give me a minute to check your posts in thread and see if there are any differences.

 

ETA I do not see anything done erroneously at a glance. It seems you had the scores of each name off by a point, plus missed McCririck.

My official conniption has been undergone and I'm OK now.

I've picked up four points with him, still in the top 3 though. Unfortunately (for me) drol didn't have Clive.

Nah I didn't pick Clive at all. Not that it matters ha!

 

Quite a hefty toll this year on the Inverse, surprised I don't have a higher score tbh.
