L13 Winter 2011 : Week 3 Roundup

“I’m stuck with a valuable friend”:
Man, what a week of two halves eh? I mean, we had a scouser crowing on Saturday and then a Yorkshireman storming through on Tuesday! Ou est les Londresners?
Shaun Backhouse 49 (8) really put a marker down in the “syndicate” circles (Jason M, you’re in for another barracking mate!) and came through on the final 15 games to take this week’s £20 – well done Shaun, betting it on the Steel City derby are we?!
“Oh no, don’t say it’s true”:
A bit like a plucky Championship side mixing it with the big boys, Josh Hirst 12(0) is starting to feel the pace and rapidly going backwards… chin up son, at least you’re “Champions League”!
Correct Score of the Week:
Not that bad considering – most popular score was France’s 3-0 win over Albania – 26 of us got that!
17 got the 1-3 in Istanbul, Louise B & Jazz S got the Red Devil’s 4-1 v Kazakhstan and 19 got the Germans efficient 3-1 v Belgium.
Mahli G, Matt W & Olly O got the 6-0 between Russia & Andorra and 12 got Moldova’s 4-0 win over San Marino. 4 got Wales’s 0-1 in Sofia, 8 got (sob) Denmark 2 Portugal 1 and 5 got Norway 3-1 Cyprus.
23 got the Azzurri’s 3-0 v Norn Iron and 13 got Espana 3 Escosia 1.
Matt W got Sweden 3 Holland 2 – remarkable…
However, this week’s best correct score and now best of the season, goes to Julian Fernandez for his inspired, albeit insane, Cyprus 1 Denmark 4.
Bet of the Week:
Some things never change and yep, you guessed it, the curse of the weekly winner failing to win us some money continues. Mr 2-0 (“The Syndicate”) crashed and burned on all three fronts for BotW slot 33rd… can Shaun B do any better??!

Table News:

“Strung out in heaven’s high”:
Paul Vinson stays top for a third week (he’s looking good this boy!) and goes 6 points ahead of Shaun B who in turn is 9 points ahead of Olly O in third.
“The shrieking of nothing is killing”:
Josh Hirst plummets to the bottom of the pile 14 points behind Stephen S who in turn is one correct score behind Martin S.
“ …an axe to break the ice”:
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 33 places is Paul Henshaw – honourable mentions go to Olly O (+28), Rich L (+25), Simon B (+23), Neil T (+27) and Matt W (+29)
“Wanna come down right now”:
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 30 places is Mr. 2-0/Mark J B/Vim G – dishonourable mentions go to Tony B (-23), Tony S (-27), Dan P (-25), Jez H (-23), Gary B (-23) and Matt G (-29)
