Ukraine - not a winner

Postby Systemsman » Mon Dec 23, 2013 4:38 pm

Ukraine - average 5/10 in my book but will say more on the main 2014 ESC discussion thred from Jan 1st. Certainly not strong enough to win.

Leaguesaint how do you view this one?

It's ok. The first line is awful but it improves after that. In its current state it isn't a winner but the Ukrainian's showed last year that they're prepared to spend some time and money improving a song and stage show. Gravity at the national final was completely different to Gravity at ESC.

Hi Team!

Postby Systemsman » Tue Dec 24, 2013 9:38 pm

Nice to see the team gathering together with none us able to resist commenting even at this stage. Hope we all stay on board right up to final night. We have had some good years and there is no reason 2014 cant be another good/winning year (but I guess you cant win every year either). I see this like the Grand National - you have to back more than one runner and hold a portfolio of countries but getting on as early as possible on each, so you hold a good hand come final night. The bookies are always doing battle with us giving nothing away so we have too be ahead of them and that's not easy.
This is now my main investment of the year - the Grand National is not the same these days although still a lot of fun. I also like to have a good investment in one of the key races at Cheltenham - that often pays for the GN and ESC investment.

2014 will be fun again Team and we will be running our points table again. I will put up the 2014 ESC discussion thred on Jan 1st. Great that some key players are still keen.

Looking forward to getting going properly in the New Year. I'll edit the first post of this topic to add videos of the other countries as they become available. I think Albania is due next in a couple of days time.

Great Team

Postby Systemsman » Sat Dec 28, 2013 5:25 pm

Great Team of people already and each an expert from previous years so I am confident we can spot that winner early without of course making it too obvious so the bookies cut the price to next to nothing (that bit will be hard, very hard) I also think our old friend Showlad (he knows he stuff when it comes to those outsiders for a trop 4 top 6 etc) will be joining us. Just a few days now to the ESC discussion thred opening - hope you all say hello on Jan 1st/2nd.

Be aware that the bookies do look at our site (what do they know about the ESC?) so don't make the winner look too obvious (you can always discuss it along with a number of other entries in the same post)in the early days while a reasonable price is available but that wont last long for any good song we would score 8 or more out of 10 (I normely have the winner on 9 or 9.5 from 10). We will find a large bulk of songs on around 4 (nothing special at all but not a complete disaster) to 7 (good but not the winner) points.

Its going to be fun all the way! Lets keep our unbeaten score chart this year as well. My next post will be on the new ESC 2014 discussion thred from Jan 1st.
