L13 Winter 2006 : Week 6 Roundup

Best :
Top o’ the tree is still Steve T who has an 11 point lead over yours truly ;-)
Bad :
Rock bottom is Will O (-3) who will now be ridiculed mercilessly by Grunwald FC contingent…but he’s only 1 point away from Jon A.
Better :
Highest climber is Greg E (+11) who moves up to 19th. Olly O (+9) up to 10th and Lisa G (+7) are also worth a mention.
Bitter :
Longest drop goes to Scott A (-14) down to 27th. Karl C (-8) on 31st, Ben McK (-8) on 35th and Clare N (-8) on 45th are not worth mentioning. But I will.
Close & A Cigar! :
No scores sent in this week but Ciaran McG (+3) is now sitting in 11th spot.
Spotters :
Simon L (+4) on 17th, Julian F (+1) on 23rd, Michelle F (+6) on 39th and Danny A (+2) on 47th.
Cup 2007 :
At the end of Week 13 you need to be where Tapiwa M is to qualify for the Lucky 13 Spring 2007 & the Big PAS Cup!
Word of Warning :
A disturbing number of players are putting in 3-0 and 3-1 for over a third of their scores – carpeting bombing is frowned upon here at PAS Towers and either the individuals will be banned or the above scores will lose their bonus point status. Discuss.
Wayne Roooooooney :
Well Steve T didn’t win (but he was close!) this week but Olly Osmond 31 (4) did! Will you share the &pound20 with your brothers or put it towards the train fare up to the Glazer Bowl? You decide… and well done sir!
And Smith Must Score :
Oh dear. A bit like the Watford striker and maybe Mr Benjani down at Fratton, Scott Aslett and Clare Nevin (again!) will have their heads in their hands pondering over a weekly total of 8 (0)…
Correct Score of the Week :
Olly O / Jazz S (remember him?) / Mark McD all got Pompey’s 3-1 win over Reading but best weekly score and new “Correct Score of the Season” goes to Greg Edwards his prediction of the Dingles beating PNE 3-2 at Turf Moor on Friday.
Bet of the Week :
The “Mystery Pro-Punter” came up trumps and wiped the slate clean for us with his Chelsea/Sunderland double – did you get on??! Next up to the oche is Olly O.
What We’ve Noticed This Week :
The deification of Thierry is definitely waning (yay!) – pies at Ashburton Grove are now a “giveaway” £3 – there were actual tackles and physical contact in the Man City V Boro game (yay! again) – City are a massive club actually, 16th in the world for turnover don’tcha know! – was Paddy O’Kenny cleverly trying to second guess Fat Frank’s shot taking a deflection? – Sheff U are rubbish…


L13 Winter 2006 : Week 5 Roundup

Good :
Nearly 100 points in two weeks, of course he’s top! Steve Tagger now has an eight point lead and the Northern Jazz title…
Bad :
Bless! He’s away in Oz oblivious to the fact he’s bottom of the pile. Welcome home Danny Ashworth you’re two points away from spoon safety…
Plain :
Highest climber this week was Villa-ette Donna E up 15 places to 23rd. Others of note were Steve T (+10) to 1st, Dave McS (+8) to 9th, Karl C (+14) to 22nd and Martin S (+9) to unlucky 33rd
Ugly :
Biggest faller this week was Citeh-boy Mark G down 13 places to 41st (see! Lisa was right!). Others to mock were Mark J B (-11) to 29th, Howard T (-11) to 36th, Ben A (-11) to 34th and the missus (-10) to 45th (keeping your brother company are we luv?)
Close & A Cigar! :
Mizz Pamela R (-4) drops out of the Top Ten for the first time this season.
Spotters :
Mr. 2-0 (-1) on 17th, Donna E (+15) on 23rd, Simon S (+2) on 39th and Anders H (+2) on 47th
Cup 2007 :
At the end of Week 13 you need to be where Tapiwa M is ( +2 ) to qualify for the Lucky 13 Spring 2007 & the Big PAS Cup!
Plucky little clubs :
A week in football is a long time – he won his first weekly prize, had a baby and now he’s won his second weekly. Congrats again to Steve Tagger 52 (6) who has posted a staggering 99 points in two weeks! Another £20 coming your way Stephen – put it in the baby fund mate…
Massive clubs :
He missed the first few weeks and he might be advised to miss a few more. Jon Allin 15 (0) you’re having a ’mare son!
Correct Score of the Week :
Steve T / Greg E / Moi got Sheff Wed 3 QPR 2, Steve T / Donna E got Southend 1 Ipswich 3, Lisa G / Matt W got Aberdeen 3 Dundee Utd 1, Matt G got Inverness C T 3 Falkirk 2 and Steve T got WBA 3 Wolves O. But, looking for his 2nd successive Correct Score of the Season, Scott Aslett is the man to beat with his St Mirren 2 Rangers 3.
Bet of the Week :
Steve T was late in getting his BotW across (something to do with X Factor and cricket – weirdo!) so I took up the challenge and took another £5 away from the tally – soz! We’re down £10 now, but hopefully Steve T will bail us out on the back of his golden run. We’ll see…
Some Fings :
All the money is finally in (Greg E, you still owe £2.50!). The new webpage won’t be ready til 2007 (Wembley? Eh? Oh…)
Thanx to Neil T for flying in specially to discuss plans for the 1st PAS awards party over a “few” pints on Saturday afternoon…
When you send your scores over, make sure you’ve saved them first yeah? A blank scoresheet only gets you the 2-0 score!
Arsenal are the best team in the world…..


PS- you may remember Mr 2-0 won a spot prize last season and as he’s a benchmark as opposed to a real person we can’t give him the money. On Friday we donated his £20 to a worthwhile local cancer charity so it’s gone to a good home and very much appreciated.

L13 Winter 2006 : Week 5 – BotW

Currently £5 down – get yer money on the following kids!

Preston / Celtic / Gretna / Morton / East Fife / Queens Park – £3 win accumulator (potential return £24.64)

Blackburn / Nottm For / Accrington – £1 draw treble (potential return £32.24)

Blackburn / Nottm For / Accrington / WBA – £1 draw accumulator (potential return £104.78)

Fingers crossed! And if we win, we’ll buy Ruby Grace a bib or summat…

Result: Lost! Now down a tenner!

L13 Winter 2006 : Week 4 Roundup

Tom Tom :
You’ve heard of Northern Soul, well, get ready for Northern Jazz! Neil Birchall is setting a breakneck pace at the top and threatening to do a Mr Sian. His lead is now 9 points from Richard L
Scott Scott :
The Swedes may be turning out top notch music at the minute but the predicting fraternity is all a bit Macclesfield. Anders Hoglund is propping up the rest 4 points from Danny B
Found My Thrill :
Obviously Steve Tagger is this weeks highest climber, up a big Yorkshire-man-pride-size 33 places to 11th. Hot also this week were Dan R (+26), Ciaran McG (+19), Olly O (+21) and Neil M (+19)
Road To Nowhere :
Obviously Dave Nicklin is this weeks biggest faller, down a big Geordie-title-hope-size 20 places to 29th. Cold also this week were Jamie S (-11), Greg E (-17) and Will O (-13)
Close & A Cigar! :
That man Steve T again – how apt.
Spotters :
Dave McS 17th (+7), Matt G 23rd (-9), Tapiwa M 39th (+2) and Danny A 47th (+1)
Cup 2007 :
At the end of Week 13 you need to be where Ben A is (-7) to qualify for the Lucky 13 Spring 2007 & the Big PAS Cup!
Super Cally :
A very high scoring week indeed – a trio of late 30 scores and a couple of level 42’s (Dan R & a rejuvenated Clare N!). But, this weeks winner may have a double celebration this week cos he’s won the £20 AND he should have a lickle baby very soon as well – congrats to Steve Tagger 47 (7). Scant consolation maybe for seeing your team lose 0-4 at home but will he spend the money on Pampers or some krunk juice? Pop yo’ collar!
Chelsea Keeper :
Yet another man to see a home defeat this weekend and it was made all the worse as he only scored 11 (0). Dave Nicklin “stand up/pogo/take of yer shoes if you love P-A-S!”
Correct Score of the Week :
Nothing unique this week so Ben A is still clutching that Lady…lots o’ peeps got Wigan – Man U, Arsenal, Dundee U – Celtic (amazingly!) and Plymouth – Derby.
Bet of the Week :
Week 3 winner Jamie S had a dismal week all round (see table later) as his Reading 1 Chelsea 1 punt fell by the wayside thanks to a goal line clearance in the last minute. £5 down again and next up is the T-Dogg (woof!)
Some Fings :
Why does Gary Teale wear contact lenses?? He hasn’t got any eyes! Just hollows that make Nick Skelington look like Marty Feldman…
Why was Ronaldo’s showboat goal for Portugal ruled out in the week?? That cost me seven points mate…
Why didn’t I check I had 1-2 and not 1-3 before cheering on that Norwegian poxy pixie paperboy on Saturday morning?
And why did I also change my Kilmarnock and Motherwell scores as well? I could’ve been a contender! I could have been somebody!

Sorry. I’m glad I listened to Mark J Brown’s wild generalisation that “Plymouth win ALL their home games 3-1”. Not only eight points in the bag but I lumped on @ 20/1 too! A right touch!
