2 more than me - I guessed all ten this week (although one was a true/false that I was more than 50% sure of, but not 100, if that's possible).

I was confident with Matt Prior and the 2011 wc. Just hope i managed to guess right with the True and False answers. :laugh

Seems to be going well Andy. At least I'm able to give an answer to everything, even if not always with hope. People leaving stuff blank probably suggests an obscure question.

a good mix, Andy. I expected I would do worse than what I have so far (which is "poorly"), and the only two I have left blank certainly weren't obscure - I just couldn't think of a valid guess.
