L13 Winter 2008 : Week 9 Roundup

How do you manage to get over 30 points on such a dire week of predicting? Ask Danny Ashworth 31 (6) and spare a little thought for Lisa G who only missed on a second consecutive payout virtue of one less correct score. Well done Danny boy, £20 to savour down the local takeouts of Stalyvegas no doubt!
How do you manage to get under 10 points on such a dire week of predicting? Ask Dave Crisp 9(0) who crashed and burned a bit like his beloved Gooners – you need backbone son, a backbone! Ask Arsene, he’ll tell ya – what? Oh yeah, sorry, my mistake, he’s as deluded as your scores mate!
Correct Score of the Week:
A great eight got the Irish team’s 1-3 at St Mirren, Anthony L / Glyn W / Danny A got Hull’s 2-2 at Pompey, Michael G (hooray!) & Mark S got West Ham’s 0-1 at SundIreland and Will O was the only player to pick up 8 points off a 0-0 with his Burnley-Doncaster stalemate. This week’s best correct score, however, goes to the luvverly Danielle Fleming for her complete guess at Watford 3 QPR 0. Well done Dando!
Bet of the Week:
We’re now £35.60 down – Lisa G’s sure thing turned out only half sure and done a runner with our fiver – over to you Danny, I know you’ve been champing at the bit and had a couple of “only one team let me down for £300” lately – so here’s your stage!

Other Stuff:
”You will see that despite the deadline passing for the Swansea/Brum match I have included my bona-fide prediction for that match. Having had such a good week last week I needed to maintain the big Mo and what better way to do it than with a feisty Friday evening championship match. Or so I thought… Slight taking of eye off the ball combined with child minding duties and disaster strikes. If any good comes out of my oversight/error it is that others can learn from such folly. Please feel free to use this salutary lesson for me as proof that PAS requires the dedication and respect it cries out for. Yours gutted.” Mark Seels on nailing the 2-3 at Swansea and then having that “oh no!” moment…
And Another Thing:
“I hope you don’t mind but I manually changed the document to reflect the correct name of The Celtic Football Club as I’m sure you’re aware that Glasgow Celtic doesn’t exist. I expect such appalling syntax errors never to happen again. I don’t pay good money into this tournament to have the name of my team made up! London Arsenal or Liverpool Everton anyone?!?” Ciaran McGoldrick gives us a Gaelic history lesson and some natty suggestions… we stand o’corrected!
