Pools Panel Results
Just like the olden day of playing the game if you choose teams that have been affected by their game being cancelled due to adverse weather conditions or any other reason the result of the game is then decided by the Pools Panel.
This is a team of experts employed by the TFP (The Football Pools) who will decide the outcome of the game at half and full time based on the teams form and ability. The panel is currently made up of Tony Green, Gordon Banks and Roger Hunt who have been responsible for setting match results for over 30 years.
