L13 Winter 2008 : Week 1

Tigers! Tigers! :
In a mixed week for Wiganers (lose the rugby / win in the football / pies a bit too hot for the clement weather…) local boy Martin Stafford 40(7) was the on the upbeat side taking the first weekly prize of £20 AND the first weekly win of the new regime (did you get a 0-0?!). Well done Martin, I think a trip to your local DVD emporium to buy the last season of The Wire is on the cards yeah?! It’s brilliant, just wait til you see what happens to M–snip!
Toon! Toon! :
It’s always been girls allowed in PAS but debutant Louise Briggs & veteran Clare Nevin 10(0) really let the side down with this weeks worst score. Apparantly Louise is sooooo embarassed she’s hopped off to Oz
Correct Score of the Week :
Loads of you got the old skool 7 pointer that is now a 5 pointer called Rangers, 5 got Wigan beating the “team that will ruin football forever with their silly money”, amazingly, Matt W / Danielle F / Dave C / Anthony L all got Celtic’s 9 pointer 3-2, cunningly, Nick H / Neil T / Martin S / Lisa G got the only new 8 pointer that is 0-0 (Barnsley – Norwich) and Mark McD got 5 points for his Burnley 3 PNE 1. However, this weeks best score was Will Oppong’s Reading 4 Swansea 0. Eight lovely points my Gooner bruvver!
Bet of the Week:
For all you newbies, the Weekly winner gets a chance to lenfd you his or her expertise and guide you where to place a fiver when you visit the bookies at the weekend (everybody does that right?!). The bet can be on absolutely anything (we’ve F1 bets before, a few gee gees and plenty of madcap accumulators) and the idea is for us all to follow the advice and win some money! Over the years we’re about even all told so let’s hope Martin S gets us off to a flyer! The BotW will be maied round with the last reiminder and my scores on a Friday…
Week 1 is attached – all prize money will be added on once I have the all players paid up and confirmed…which leads nicely to…
If you’ve paid up – thanks! If you haven’t – as soon as please! (contact me for payment details)
Other Stuff:
Spot the good and bad in this email? “Can you put me down for 4-0 for utd, arsenal and chelsea. 1-1 for liverpool. celtic and rangers 3-0 Newcastle beaten 0-1 and the rest 3-0” That’s right! Good that the player mailed me a few scores cos they didn’t have time and bad asking for 3-0 for “the rest”. If you cant/don’t complete all your scores you can ONLY have 2-0 as a “blanket” score! Got that? Good. We have our analysts poring tirelessly over the entries weeding out any spoilers, so don’t do it kids – just say no! I In this case, 2-0 gave the player a better score anyway!

And Another Thing: did you get beaten by a 12 week old???!


L13 Winter 2008 : Pre Season

We’ve had a flurry of interested punters, the scoresheets are being processed, the huge-ever-pulsating-scoring-matrix-that-makes-tells-us-the-weekly-winner-and-compiles-the-league-table has been fired up by the coal monkeys and we’re almost ready to confiem this season’s runners and riders…involved yet? C’mon, you know you wanna….

We start on weekend 27th/28th September 2008!

If you’re a newcomer (hola!) or a regular (welcome back!), check out the “Rules” on www.pabspace.co.uk – they tell you all you need to know & hopefully it will all make sense!

Send this on to anyone you know who might be interested and get them to mail me so I can add them to the list – the more, the merrier, the more money in the kitty to be won!

P-A-S rocks! You get to show off how good you are at guessign scores! There’s a end of year poll where you get to show off how cool your music taste is! You get to show off how much money you take off the bookies in the “Bet of the Week” feature! Basically, it’s showing off…

Don’t take my word for it, check these testimonials…

  • “I put Palace to win every game. Sometimes they do. It’s all about the long game” – G Blackburn
  • “I was sooooo excited and giddy about playing the legendary PAS I wet myself…” – L Gray

Anyway… The all leagues have kicked off, so time to start honing those footie predicting skills, watching every game on telly, swotting up on the reports in the papers, poring over the league tables and ignoring every single “tip of the week” from the pro punters – enjoy!



PS – remember, getting involved will seriously change your Saturday afternoons for 13 weeks and Geoff Stelling will cheer and dismay you in equal measures! Go on, you know you want to… plus, it’s a real “water cooler” moment on a Monday morning at work!
