Spreadsheet for World Cup fans

My wife Val is a football fanatic, and also has the calculating mind in our family, and has designed a spreadsheet to keep track of the World Cup results.

If anyone is a soccer stats freak, you might like to try it. A tiny corner of it is shown below, but there is much more than that.

You enter the results of each match as it is played, and it will predict who will play who in the next found. It also keeps track of yellow and red cards, and things like that.

Don't try it unless you are really interested if both football and stats, though. It's 5 Mb, and there's nothing in it that you won't be able to find on the web or in the paper the next day

If you would like to try it, e-mail val.hayes@gmail.com and ask for a copy. It is in MS Excell, but it also seems to work in the Open Office spreadsheet program.

Val also notes:

In 1966 when England were the home team and won the world cup their first round group consisted of

England
Mexico
Uruguay
France

is this a sign!
