David Healey:
Surely when you’ve racked up 46(7) points you’re gonna win the weekly prize??! Unfortunately not this week as Blackpool’s last minute goal denied another 3 points to condemn me to another last gasp runner’s up spot and landed the £20 into Mark J Brown’s 47(7) lap. Booooooo! Well done Scouse, the winnings should keep you in Chang at the game for a good few weeks to come…
Wayne Rooney:
After a spate of high achievers getting all cocky and not submitting scores, it was the turn of the bottom feeders to have a go. Mr 2-0 13(1) duly obliged and kept them firmly in their place!
Correct Score of the Week:
A bumper week after the recent barren run – loads of you got Nottm Forest 3-0 and Slovakia 1-3, Will O / Lisa G / Dave N got Albania 0-0, Dan R & Ben H got Poland’s 5-0 (ask Clare N about that one!), Ciaran McG got Blackpool’s aforementioned 1-3, I got Portugal’s sparkling 4-0 against Belgium and England’s flat 0-0 with Israel, but Correct Score of the Week and new Best of the Season is Lisa Grey, for her “lucky last minute” Liechtenstein 1 Norn Iron 4.
Bet Of The Week:
Matt W gave us a 7-fold and true to form this season it failed to come in and leaves us £40 down. However, if you followed my patriotic (of sorts) Iberico-Celtic 5 timer you would be breaking even as we speak as it paid back between £40 and £50 (depending where you bet) for a £5 stake. Yes, I am ace.
