L13 Winter 2005 : Week 10 – Roundup

Sorry it’s late (stuck in Gatwick last night cos MCR airport was closed…) – I’ll make it short and sweet…

Gary Blackburne 38(6) wins a week after 15 years of trying! FYI – there were 135 pts up for grabs this week.
Andy Bowkett 11 (1)
Bet of the Week:
Rubbish Olly!
Correct Score of the Week:
Nowt this week as two or more people got Arsenal, Burnley, Livingston and Hibs.

Briefly – you can work out your average score this week!

Top 4 are pulling away but a good 20 players still have a realistic chance of breaking the Top Ten…


L13 Winter 2005 : Week 9 – Roundup

Dougie Freedman:
Simon L and and Steve T will be cursing the fog at St Andrews as it robbed them of catching this weeks winner, Olly Osmond 41 (5). Well done Olly, gonna spend the twenty on voting for ya bruv in the jungle??!
A week’s a long time in PAS eh? One week you win a weekly prize and the next you’re propping up the rest with a woeful score of 8(0). Yes, you Jamie Sellers – and you live in Brighton. Not a good weekend…
Correct Score of the Week:
Most Manc lovers came up trumps on the 1-3 at Charlton, loads got Reading, a choice few got Chelsea, a few more had Liverpool. Pam D and Matt W got Celtic and amazingly, Simon L AND Neil T got the famous Palace 2-3 win. Jazz S got Plymouth’s 3-1 but this weeks props go to Danny Bushell for his Boro 3 Fulham 2 (and I had 4-2, grrrrrr…)
Bet of the Week:
I think you can tell by Jamie’s score that his bet didn’t come in! Luckily I backed Wolves on Friday so made my money back! Next up giving us tips is Olly O.
All scoresheets seemed to get thru ok, so that’s all good – quite a few of you didn’t bother this week though – don’t give up! You can still fluke a weekly even if you’re doing rubbish in the league!!

Week 9 table

Doubling her points lead at the top to twelve is Clare Nevin. Not sure if we’ve ever had a girl champion. Mindy N, can you confirm?
He didn’t submit any scores this week and now Kim Anthon is three points from safety…
No surprises that Olly O is this weeks highest climber (+16), along for the rise up are Simon L (+8), Simon S (+8), Matt W (+10), Andy B (+10) and Danny A (+8)
No surprises that Jamie S is this weeks biggest faller (-12), along for the slip down are Ben H (-8), Me (-7), Tim B (-8), Ahmed A (-8), Neil B (-9) and Ben McK (-7)
Prize Places:
Simon S is up eight to 17th, Tim B is down eight to 27th,Mr 2-0 is down one to 42nd and Scott A is down six to 32nd – where you need to be come Week 13 to get an invite to the Cup comp in 2006.


L13 Winter 2005 : Week 9 – BotW

Bet Of The Week is from Week 8 winner and QPR man Jamie Sellers… after the last two weeks netting around £70 profit, he’s playing it safe to keep up the record (I say safe, he’s included Citeh…)

My bet this week is £5 on the following win treble – Man City, Sheff U and Watford

If that little lot comes in, should double your money.

Cheers, have a good weekend,

Result: LOSE! -£5

L13 Winter 2005 : Week 8 – Roundup

Little Mickey:
Only a few weeks ago I got a complaint on how “lucky” other players must be cos they’re probably putting “5-2 down for everything…” Well, it just goes to show, if you can pick out the “traditional” scores you can win a week. Well done Jamie Sellers 43 (8), you’ll have someone sneering at you now! £20 to get that Bircham barnet perhaps?!
Taxi For Crespo:
And just to add weight to the arguement for putting some research into doing your scores, up rocks Pam Riding 9(0)
Correct Score of the Week:
Quite a few to be had this week (if predicted all 29 matches correctly, you would have amassed 172 points!). You have to feel for Gary B who had Brazil down for seven, and they got eight with a last minute goal. Chin up son! Popular “bonus” scores were Grimsby v Macc Town and Alloa v Morton. One person got Poland and that same person got the England score right too! Stephen Peaston is now in posession of the “Best Correct Score of the Season”. Some consolation for just missing out on the weekly prize I suppose…
Bet of the Week:
We missed out on about £50 last week via John W’s tips – we’re you on this week? You should have been! Clare N came up trumps (on both fronts if you swapped Bulgaria for Spain) despite Mexico v Chile not being played (does anyone know why? FYI – all scores were void on this game for PAS). Soooo, if you put a fiver on like my good self, you would have got back around £32.88. Nice one Clare – Jamie S you’ve got a tough act to follow mate…
Still a few probs with the Guardian massive getting scores in – I can only suggest you send thru to the Gmail address as back up or start mailing back via your personal e-mail accounts. Dave N is working on it though and hopefully it will all be good very soon (i.e. if the G get a decent server..!) I’m off to Londinium this weekend so the last reminder you’ll get this week will be Friday morning – so don’t forget!

Week 8 table

Numero Uno :
She knows how to back a winner but Clare Nevin has now had her lead at the top cut to 4 points by Stephen P who is well clear in 2nd.
Middle Order :
Highest climber this week is Greg Edwards up 12 places to 30th. Honourable mentions to Jamie S (+10), Dan B (+7), Steve T (+7), Scott A (+7) and Ben McK (+8)
Tail Enders :
The big dropper this week is Dave Nicklin down 13 places to 27th. Dishonourable mentions to Neil B (-9), Simon S (-8), Olly O (-7) and Pam R (-9).
Last Man :
Only one point from avoiding embarassment now, Kim Anthon is hot on the heels of John McS and Jim B.
Spot Prizing:
Simon L at 17th (-5), Dave N at 27th (-13) and Phil B at 42nd (+2)
Cup Cut Off :
After Week 13 you need to be where Matt W (=) is at present on 32nd spot to be invited to play in the Cup 2006.


L13 Winter 2005 : Week 8 – BotW

After missing out on a winner last week (about £50 I reckon) it’s the turn of the Girl on Top, Clare Nevin…

Given that it’s taken me an eternity to complete this weeks score sheet, and I had to resort to looking up the FIFA international rankings on the Internet – (I am on the verge of failing to recognise myself since I started courting that Mr T) – I take no responsibility for any loss incurred as a result of this weeks bet, here we go… To win:Brazil, Poland, Bulgaria, Uruguay, Mexico

Clare has also pointed out you may have trouble getting odds for Bulgaria (Bet365 have got ’em all though) so if you can’t, stick Spain in instead – if that little lot comes in, you’re looking at around £50+ for a fiver – we can’t miss out again can we…!

And finally, we’ve several requests to resurrect the “Festive Fives” where you send in your Top 5 singles and albums of the year and we get a couple of charts for Week 13 so you see what your fellow PASers are listening to (and it’s a good source for those late late pressies!) So get thinking, compiling and sending – reasons why you like said tracks/albums will be useful too…


Result: WIN!

L13 Winter 2005 : Week 7 – Update

Yep, well done all youse shrewd enough to mark your own scores cos you spotted th, umm, deliberate mistake this week. Fortunately it doesn’t affect the prize money…

You see, when you’ve nothing better to do all day except wonder where the next wage is coming from you get a bit slack… what happened was that I forgot to put in the Everton result (can’t believe how many of you had faith in that pub team!) and subsequently points were missing – don’t worry, all will be amended and updated “toot sweet” ready for this weeks action (have you seen the fixtures yet??? – ha ha!).

Apologies, but had Francky Q not hit the bar I would have noticed it a lot sooner as I had it down for 1-1…

And whilst you’re here, the Guardianista (well a few of them) seem to having problems sending their scores through. Please check for a “error message” and if you get one send to my GMail e-dress as pointed out a hundred million times previous, OR failing that, saunter (see, I remember how much work you do!) over to Mr Peaston and watch him send his scores cos he’s not had a problem as yet…

Cheers and soz again,

L13 Winter 2005 : Week 7 – Roundup

Darren Fletcher:
Where the “Scottish Beckham” headed a goal to stop Chelski running away with it, Clare Nevin 44 (6) won this week at a canter, and is now herself running away with PAS, opening up a massive 17 point gap at the half way stage. Well done Clare. You shall receive £20 very soon. Will you spend it on a FC Utd rosette and scarf for Neil T since he’s been (prior to Sunday), sooooo disillusioned with Man Yoo?
Only The 40 Games Then:
Oh dear, John McSherry 11 (0) had more of a mare than the Lino at Selhurst Park…
Correct Score of the Week:
Everyone in the world it seemed got back on the dead cert that is Celtic 3-0, plenty on the Arse and Ipswich, a few on the 2-2 draw in Scotland, Neil B & Joanne G we’re on wonderful Wigan’s 0-2 and Will O got Hearts 3-0. However, this weeks props go to Danny A for his Millwall 1 Crewe 3 result. Scott A is still out front for the season though…
Bet of the Week:
Well it had to happen didn’t it! The week I forget to bet on the weekly winners recommendations, it comes in… a 5 timer with a good value Watford included! Anyone get on it? Johnny W, did you back your own predictions? How much did the accumulator come in at??? Please let me know and make me feel even worse…
When you see the table you’ll notice “Mr 2-0” is back in business. I’ve had to refund one punter and that’s affected the “spot prizes” and 10th place. Sorry about that, but it was a special case. For those not familiar with Mr 2-0, he’s a made up man who gets the 2-0 score every week, so you can gauge your performance against the default score… just so you can see the value of taking part and having a think about it – or not!

Week 7 table

Tip Top :
As mentioned above, Clare Nevin is now a huge 17 points clear of the improving Karl C in 2nd.
Getting There :
Highest climber this week is a joint effort. Tim B & Richard L are both up 16 places to 14th & 16th respectively. Other movers of note are Stephen P (+11), Jazz S (+12), Jamie S (+9) and Olly O (+9)
Losing It :
Falling down the mostest this week is Neil T, down 14 places to 26th. Others slipping are Neil B (-7), Tapiwa M (-7), Me (-9), Ahmed A (-7), Andy B (-10) and Fred R (-10)
Rock Bottom :
As Martin S puts in his best performance of the season, Kim A is now 2 points behind John McS in the wooden spoon berth.
Tapiwa M at 17th (-7), Ahmed A at 27th (-7) and Julian F at 42nd (+3)
Cup Cut Off :
After Week 13 you need to be where Scott A (+4) is at present on 32nd spot to be invited to play in the Cup 2006.

Hopefully all the “reply all” and “out of office” messages aren’t coming thru now as Dave N has been slaving away all week to resolve the problem. Top man!
