I was a bit unsure of the best way to tackle this football problem (geddit?), it’s not as straightforward as these football problems usually are.

This Python program uses the

Football()class fromenigma.py. It runs in 579ms.Solution:The result of the other five matches are:Albion vs. Borough – win for Borough;

Albion vs. United – match drawn;

Borough vs. Rangers – win for Rangers;

Borough vs. United – match drawn;

City vs. Rangers – win for City.

The matches remaining to be played are: Albion vs. Rangers, Borough vs. City, City vs. United and Rangers vs. United. (So one week will be: B vs. C, R vs. U, and the other week will be A vs. R, C vs. U).
