L13 Winter 2010 : Week 9 – Roundup…

“Walking 'round the room singing…”:
Back in 1989 I started PAS just to mug off my then work colleagues cos I knew more about footy than they did. How? Cos I pored over results, stats, tables, form etc for mere pleasure and used this to take money off unsuspecting “victims”. As PAS snowballed to become what it is today, I’ve found myself second in the all-time earners chart (a poor second behind the Jazzenator mind) so my ambitions were realised on an even grander scale! However, over the last few seasons my “knowledge” isn’t paying dividends thanks to unpredictable English & Scottish leagues and a new breed of PASers are reaping the rewards! Yes, Michelle Fernandez 38(6) has won her 3rd £20 in two seasons thanks to her “you read out the fixtures and I’ll think of a score” technique that takes all over 80 seconds to complete… I want to weep. And we lost to Sp*rs…..
“Things ain't cooking in my kitchen”:
Things are looking up though as my little daughter Frankie Fernandez 10 (1) is obviously taking after her dad and studying form to ill effect as well! Actually, as her nan does her scores, does that mean I take after my mum??!
Correct Score of the Week:
I hate football…. – most popular score was Blackpool 2 Wolves 1 – 22 of you got that score! 6 got Derby’s 3-2 against Scunthorpe, 6 got the 3-1 between QPR and The Lilywhites, 7 got Liverpool 3 West Ham 0 and 6 got the 2-2 between Sunderland & Everton… Jamie T got Kilmarnock 2 Rangers 3 and Tony S got Sheff Utd 3 Palace 2. Neil B got the 0-1 at the Riverside. However, this week’s best correct score goes to Vim Gupta for his inspired Celtic 1 Dundee Utd 1.
Bet of the Week:
Oh maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, so close but so Huddersfield….
