He owes it all to that lad who notched late doors for Soton cos it edged me out of winning the weekly prize – John Williamson 30(5) is this weeks winner and will no doubt spend the £20 on a “I Hate Sol” t-shirt or something equally bitter as the dirty Sp*rs yet again fail to beat Les Gooners despite us having our worst side out for years… Ha ha ha!
From hero to zero in one fell swoop, Pam Dyson 9(1) capitulates but is joined by a despondent Mackem in the form of Joanne Gracie 9(0)
Correct Score of the Week:
Quite a few of us got the Citeh score right for the only “bonus” points of the week. All other scores of note (Everton, Coventry, Wigan etc) were snaffled up by at least two people so for the first time in ages, we don’t have a CSW. Scott A is lovin’ it…
Bet of the Week:
Pam D didn’t get back to me and stand in Danny A was too late for me to send it round. Just as well really as it was a wrong un by 3.15… I won’t mention the bets Jon T and myself put on Friday night either! Johnny W, you’re up next mate.
Meredith B had a bit of trouble getting their scores thru this week for some reason (an error report was sent). If this happens to you, either send it to my GMail e-dress ([email protected]) or forward on your scores later along with the error report so I can see when you originally tried to send. Just to make sure no skulduggery is going on, not that you lot would try such a thing…
Table after Week 6
Looking Good On The Dancefloor:
Ex indie-fop John Williamson is strutting his stuff up 8 places to lead the way by 2pts from Ben H.
Robot From 1984:
None of the bottom 3 moved but Martin Stafford is now only 4pts away from Kim A.
I may be officially “dole scum” (anyone got any vacancies at their place??!) but I’m movin’ on up and officially this weeks highest climber up 9 places to lucky 13th. Other movers include John W (see above), Neil Birchall (+6), Fred R (+6), Jamie S (+6) and Mark F (+7)
Not only a 1-4 home defeat to Pompey (Pompey??!) to deal with, Joanne G is also this weeks furthest faller down 14 places to 33rd. Other stiffs are Stephen P (-8), Pam D (-9), Richard L (-8), Scott A (-10) and Olly O (-11).
Wayne C is up 3 to 17th, Gary B is up 2 to 27th and Matt G is up 3 to 42nd. Richard L is down 8 to 32nd ad where you need to be come Week 13 to get an invite to the Cup comp in 2006.
Just like good ol’ Wigan Soul Athletic, this week’s winner provided the grim North with something to smile about. Pam Dyson 50 (10) produced one of the best winning scores for a long time and is there or thereabouts on the “best haul of correct scores in a week” board too. Congratulations Pam, £20 on it’s way for you to put towards the airfare when Man Yoo move to West Virginia next season…
Scarily akin to scuffing a football with your studs from twelve yards out in front of a worldwide audience, Danny Ashworth fluffed his lines and scored 13(1). “Hey Danny! What’s the French for arrogant tw-”
Correct Score of the Week :
No one got the Cardiff score right (and if they did, there would’ve been a drugs test) or the Wigan one or the Fulham one (but a few of you we’re close on the latter two). I got the Sp*rs one, Andy B got the Toon-Mackem 3-2, but then so did Will O. This weeks best score goes to Gary Blackburne for his Falkirk 1 Dundee Utd 3. Obviously a massive fan. Actually I saw him at Cov-Palace last week and that Stone Island jumper was looking a bit strained round the midriff…
Bet of the Week :
True to form, Darryl M’s six-fold went out the window early doors and a few of us (well, me and Darryl) are £5 poorer. Mrs Dyson, it’s your turn this week!
Quite a lot of you were plagued by mystery messages last week due to the “distribution list” work we were carrying out. If you receive these in the future please ignore! Also, you will notice that there is only one e-mail address to send the score to now (the “Yahoo!” one) so hopefully that will make your lives a whole lot easier in the future. As of Friday, you will not receive any updates from this e-dress as all communication will be done via the “dist list” link and my Yahoo! account.
Top Banana :
What do you get if you cross a plastic Scouser with a penchant for weak lager with a West Ham supporting Man of Kent who’s a referee? No, not a spin off series from "Two Pints of Lager, but a two headed predicting machine that’s one point clear at number one. Meredith (Neil) Butler (Stuart) are up seven places this week.
Banana Skin :
Seriously off kilter with Jewell & the Boys, Martin Stafford finds himself still rooted to 50th place but now 6 points adrift.
Green Bananas :
Highest climber this week is of course Pam Dyson, up a dizzying 28 places to 13th. Mentions to Karl C (+14), Simon L (+10), Michelle F (+8) and Matt W (+8)
Brown Bananas :
Withered most this week is Danny Ashworth down 21 to 44, mentions to, Steve T (-9), Pam R (-8), Jon T (-12), Matt G (-10) and John McS (-8)
Prize Winning Bananas :
Michelle F up 8 to 17th, Fred R down 7 to 27th and Mark F up 2 to 42nd.
Banana Splitz :
You need to be where Damian D (+2) is on Week 13 to make the Cup invite for next year…
Nice story this, and a lesson to us all! Unfortunately, Tapiwa Madovi had to attend his nan’s funeral back in Zimbabwe last week, so P-A-S was the last thing on his mind. Luckily one of his mates at work sorted the scores for him in his absence and guess what? Yep, 42(7) was this weeks winning score! So, always make sure you’re nice to someone in work cos you never know when they’ll help you out! Now, whether Tapiwa will share the wealth or not is another matter…
In a week that failed to produce the usual rich pickings of 3+ goals in a game, Margaret Ashworth and Jim Bloor suffered most as they only chalked up 15(0) each.
Correct Score of the Week:
Pesky Luxemborg scuppered my 5-0 prediction by scoring a penalty in Russia and the other “big” score was had by many (Bosnia 3 San Marino 0). This week’s accolade goes to Fred Rowe who somehow worked out Georgia would draw 0-0 with Kazakhstan. Small compensation for missing the weekly prize by a point though…
We might start the weekly winner giving his/her tip of the week for the gamblers amongst us – but after last years disaster, we might not…
It’s only taken him two weeks to notch his first win of the season, but win he has! This weeks £20 is going to JAZZ SIAN 43(6)and he can thank Norwich and Sheff Wed for that for providing 17 points between them. Still, he’s not got the Best Correct Score though… Congrats Jazz, £20 to squander on betting on dirty Sp*rs to finish higher than Arsenal eh?!!
Champions Of Europe:
Probably feeling a lot like “El Controller Gordo” after this weekend are BEN McKEOWN and MATT WORSFOLD who both chalked up a miserable 11 (0) each. And there’s even more misery for Ben in store when he sees the table… He he he!
Best Correct Score:
Charlton 2 Sp*rs 3? Nope (well done Stephen P and John W) Livvy 0 Celtic 5? Nope (well done Joanne G and Will O) QPR 1 Palace 3 ? No! (well done Stephen P and Margrit A). As you are well aware form reading the rules, BCS must be unique, predicted by no other. So, current title holder is SCOTT ASLETT for his FULHAM 2 MAN UTD 3 guess.
The new supa-dupa scoring system seems to have been falwless though extensive checks are being run, so that’s all good. You have noticed another new e-dress from me too – for all Gmail’s goodness over Hotmail it’s a bit difficult filing e-mails so you may be instructed to send to a different e-dress this week, but we’re getting there, so go with me on this one!
