If Sweden qualifies on Thursday then the later it is picked out on screen via the envelope then the less chance they have of picking a late draw in the final as the countries picked out before have more chance to beat them to it to those slots.
Surely not? Just the luck of the draw wherever they are placed envelope wise.

3 years of stats or even 23 mean little in a 43 runner race.Early bad. Middle OK. Late Good.Simple as that.
Agree to disagree mate , but you know trap order is vital in any specials more so on the bigger the field ,
I could go back years , but most of that is totally irrelevant (due to voting changes).
Recent 3 years at least give an indication ,
I'm happy spain is out of 19 , Germany 20 and hopefully sweeden with a late slot as well.

I'm just going through and jettisoning my green on the liked of Cypyus etc. on the basis that anything drawn 16 or earlier just aint gonna win. Are fellow punters in agreement that none of those currently drawn 16 or earlier can win even though that includes some decent ones like Greece, Cyprus, Russia, Romania, Italy, France

does anyone know when we will learn the votes of the semi final?
immediately after the final and don't believe anyone who says they know beforehand is my advice

Unusual to disagree with a couple of u , but gb2 , I think sweeden is a green for u ,( sorry if I'm wrong) but if that is the case would u back it again if drawn 4 on thursday
Wouldn't back it again with any draw at these prices mug . Instinctively draw 4 would feel bad but if her name is on the cup she wins anyway.
What if they opened lines after song 1 mug?...another myth methinks that this helps first ones on.

five leaves left nope. Just makes it harder honest. It's been won from early slots before. ___________________But have any done so recently? Certainly in the 'jury era' it's been late songs every time
The juries should make it easier for a song drawn early to win as they shouldn't be swayed by the RO, just the quality of the song
