How did you do?

  • 0-9 - Pure 'Super! Superb! How do you think it feels?' energy.
  • 10-19 - It's a game of two halves, but you might as well have not even bothered showing up at all.
  • 20-29 - There's no shortage of effort here, but you'd be lucky to avoid the drop.
  • 30-39 - Needed an early goal but let down by some Brighton-esque finishing.
  • 40-49 - Decent quizzer, you, but don't chase those coaching badges just yet.
  • 50-59 - Looks like you've pulled off a Burnley and finished seventh, very impressive.
  • 60-69 - It must be nice to know your opinion is more important than others. You like xG, we get it!
  • 70-72 - You obviously watch thousands of hours of football a week, so this is a somewhat hollow victory. But yeah, 'well done'.
