    Malcolm is such a good team captain: knowledgeable but always checking with the team and giving them feedback.

    Edinburgh really give the impression that, more than teammates, this is a group of friends who are having fun together. I don't think they're the strongest team by a long shot, but their comradery and teamwork make them a joy to watch.

      Hey, i was wondering if there's any way for me to kinda revise,study or learn this thing so i can maybe join in and answer them to instead of watching Max Zeng from Imperial popping off with his would be more entertaining to actually know what the answer for the question haha please let me know

    • Ramboost007

      @jayantshaq As long as Mays keeps listening to Zeng and Sheriff for the non-geogrpahy questions, they'll do very fine

    • jayantshaq
      jayantshaq Hace un año +25

      I think they are all that, _and_ very likely the strongest team in the competition. Though Zeng, Sheriff and co. might have something to say about that.

      Another tight one for Edinburgh. I thought their match vs Bristol was the best one of the series. It ended the exact same way with Edinburgh winning on the last question

    That was VERY close. I was not expecting this one to be that close, but credit to both teams for making a good match of it. Very little time-wasting, good answers and an inspired guess to win it at the death. Bravo.

      @LEW39 oh i see now. men and women are different sexes, and flow and passion are sexual in nature

    • LEW39
      LEW39 Hace un año

      @Spencer Twiddy The whole show was shadowed by an underlying tension, which I surmised was sexual. Young, virile men and women in extreme competition will often bring out extreme passion. Very easy to spot if you know what to look for.

    Before they started I had predicted a win by Edinburgh so was shocked, as things progressed, by how well Emmanuel was doing. Edinburgh won through but it was a squeaker!!
    Thanks Dave!

    To all those who have made comments on social media about Thomas "blanking" Jones: bear in mind that whoever sits in the left hand end seat (as we view the teams) is at a disadvantage compared to the other team members. The other two are both sitting adjacent to the Team Captain and therefore it is natural for them to turn towards him /her when conferring. The guy on the left hand end has to talk past the guy sitting to his left. It's not the players' fault, they should be seated in a curving arrangement so that they can all see each other rather than in a straight line. And the silly perspex screens don't help ...

    • Meedy P.
      Meedy P. Hace un año +1

      True, but then again I don't see any other team "blanking" whoever sits in the left end seat the way Thomas does Jonas. He wouldn't even acknowledge him when Jonas answers a question correctly. Especially at the end when it was Jonas who buzzed and answered the winning question.

    Hope everyone enjoyed this game - I most certainly didn't at the time. A quick message for all those who have commented on our 'smugness' as a team (or even just me, for all I know): we're really not (trying to be) smug; we are just trying to play some quiz and enjoy ourselves. If it comes across that way to some people then I would have to say it's not down to arrogance, or being smug (we knew if we didn't play well then Emmanuel were going to beat us); it's down to the stress of being in front of so many people and panicking about... let's say: potentially mixing up a text of Rabbinic Judaism and the text that contains the Pentateuch, for example. Anyway, this is all I have to say; hope you all enjoy the rest of the season.

      Only just caught up with this match, and I have to say, that was one of the greatest saves I've ever seen in UC at the end there, on your part. Atoned for 'Talmudgate' almost instantly. Fantastic stuff!

      No one on the Edinburgh team struck me as “smug”-it seemed like you were all out to have a good time _and,_ of course, win the match. And congratulations on providing the final answer - (Giuseppe) Peano, the creator of the auxiliary language _Latino sine flexione_ - which propelled your team over the top to victory!

    Amazing game with timing being the only deciding factor. Both teams pulled off great comebacks, with Edinburgh's helpfully a little closer to the end. Props to Emmanuel for leading for most of the match! I really hope to see them in the next stage.

    Thrilling stuff between two very good teams who were a joy to watch. Reckon this is the best contest of the current series so far. Great that Emmanuel have another chance to qualify for the semi-final - they put up some fight against Edinburgh who will be a difficult team to beat. A big thank you to Dave for uploading this and for Jeremy for being a tough but fair quiz master. I live in Indonesia and look forward to UC each week - takes me back to my university days in the early 1970s.

  • Perry Huang

    It seems Edinburgh either win by a mile or barely scrape enough points. The jump-the-gun technique on starters is still a concern and undid their momentum at times (four penalties!) but I guess their strong finish was what mattered in the end. Emmanuel Cambridge gave them a good run for their money, looking forward to their third match.

  • Svetoslav Krastev

    25:28 - I was like “On, no, you didn’t cost your team the win on THIS easy question. How could you?!”. But then 26:46 came, and he totally redeemed himself. 26:59 - he totally deserved that reaction, though 😂🤣🤣😂
    That was a really close game and very interesting episode. 👍👌

    Sometimes the answers given don’t really explain the clue in the question. The answer ‘shrike’ whilst correct doesn’t tell you that the shrikes are also known as butcher birds because they impale their victims on sharp thorns, leaving the teams just shrugging with incomprehension.

      It's one of things you'll have to happen to have read, maybe because you really love birds and there's a couple of long-tailed shrikes and their fluffy, hungry juvenile hanging out in your vicinity.
      Plus maybe Marvel's Agents of Shield and also maybe Now You See Me 1 and 2...

      @Gwydda the old country word in England for the red-backed shrike is butcher bird. The other winter visitor shrike to England is the great grey shrike. Both very rare. I've never seen either though a farmer in a rural area. See 'Birds Britannica' by Mark Cocker and Richard Mabey. I have to say in general I'm appalled by the lack of knowledge of the flora and fauna of the UK by UC contestants. They didn't even get the laburnum question on poisons.

      Shrike is not a butcher bird. Shrikes don't even live in Australia, where butcherbirds are found. But shrikes do often impale their prey on thorns.

      @David Bloom No. Paxman asks about a fearsome creature guarding and hanging its victims on a metal structure and is thus named after which members of the family Lanidae. He does not mention butcher birds at all

    Boy, Edinburgh seemed to be overconfident on the interruptions, maybe because they’d waltzed through the earlier rounds and thought they could afford to take risks. It barely worked. Great match, thanks for the upload.

    Not very nice for Thomas to have his back continually to Jones.
