L13 Winter 2010 : Week 3 – Roundup…

“It’s temporary, this place I’m in”:
Always bumper scores to be had on an international week as every seasoned PASer knows, and funny enough, it’s one of the stalwarts who takes this week’s £20! Howard Thomas 46 (8) just beat rising star Josh H for his first weekly win of the season. Well done Hitman, hopefully that’ll raise a smile in light of the recent redundancy from work mate… (he still beats peop, I mean, escorts them from nightclub premises though…)
“I permanently won’t do this again”:
Here’s a scoop for our resident hack – “Gareth Morgan 14(0), pivotal PAS pundit performance palaver presents perfect primetime for p*ss taking..”
Correct Score of the Week:
No, the 8-0 remained unpredicted – most popular score was Slovakia 1 Eire 1 – 20 of you got that! 5 got the 0-0 in Luxembourg, 12 got Austria’s 3-0 v Azerbaijan and 10 got Germany’s 3-0 against Turkey. 4 of you got the 0-0 between Norn Iron and the Azzurri and 12 got Portugal 3 Denmark 1 (and another 12 got Iceland 1 Portugal 3). Andy C /Neil M got Slovenia 5 Faroe Islands 1 and Dave N got Spain 3 Lithuania 1. However, this week’s best correct score and new best correct of the season so far, goes to Josh Hirst for his inspired Scotland 2 Spain 3. So, Josh really is smarter than Vicky O & a nearly 9 year old sister!
Bet of the Week:
Double whammy as Serbia prove to be the coupon-buster more so for Andrew D rather than Shaun B….

Table News:

“… I think it’s finally time for me to laugh about it”:
Shaun Backhouse stays top 7 points ahead of Andrew D who in turn is 1 point ahead of Josh H & Howard T. Tony B moves ominously into the Top Ten…
“It gets lonely for heavens sake”:
Vim Gupta stays bottom of the pile three points behind is old mucker Savan A and five behind Neil B…
“Decided he better hike it to the second floor”:
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 29 places are Ellen Fernandez & Mark De-Ste-Croix (zut alors! The French get good!)- honourable mentions go to Neil M (+19), Dave N (+24), Jazz S (+25 = oooh scary!) and Michelle F (+22 – oooh even scarier!).
“I fell into some kind of sorry state”:
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 26 places are Mark Grey & Pete Britton (karma for Citeh fans for spoiling football forever eh?!) – dishonourable mentions go to Jamie S (-20), Charlie H (-20), Debbie J (-24), Francesca F (-22) and Gareth M (-25)
PAS Cup 2011:
In order to be invited to enter the PAS Cup 2011(and pay a reduced entry fee!) you will have to finish in the Top 32 after 13 weeks of play. Currently sneaking the last spot is… the Palace Guard, Gary Blackburne.
And Another Thing:
Still not paid yet?! Get your payment across as soon as please!

The new online scoresheet function is ready for beta-testing (ooh a techkie word!) so when I get time to sort my life out I’ll be inviting some of you to get involved – seemit as an honour rather than a chore mes amigos…
