L13 Spring 2010 : Week 2 – Roundup…

“I feel it there in front of me…”:
As the draws return to the football leagues, so do the points to Predict-a-Score. A keenly contested week sees Matt Gingell 33(5) get his head turned from the egg chasing and take this week’s £20. Well done Maffew, not too many pints of Pimms now…
“getting further out of reach”:
Until she can actually talk and not just point to food she wants to eat (constantly), her nan is the custodian of her scores… best hurry up talk then little girl! Francesca Fernandez 8(0) limps in last this week…
Correct Score of the Week:
I hate Montrose… 7 got the “shock” 1-1 draw between Raith & Aberdeen, 5 got the blinding 1-2 away win for Palace at Scunny, Sam A/Paul H/Will O got Bolton 0 Fulham 0 and Matt G/Julian F/Clare T got Donny 1 Reading 2. Paul J & Andy C have Pompey to thank for Man Utd 5 Portsmouth 0, Sam A (again) & Ben McK got the Posh 1 The Rich 0 and Jazz S & Stephen S got Kilmarnock 3 Inverness 0.However, best correct score of the week, and the season so far, goes to Stephen Street for his Hibs 5 Montrose 0.
Bet of the Week:
A bit of a bitter sweet last gasp victory for Palace, as it denied us a draw treble and £18 into the coffers – as did the injury time equaliser for Hartlepool denying us an away treble (and another £3) – splendid effort Mr Bowley, very unlucky to come away with nothing… next up is Matt Gingell playing for himself and BotW spot prize slot 39th.

You’ll see from the table we’ve had a “drop out” so the spot prize amounts had to take the hit I’m afraid… Oh, and Wenger out!!!
