“Busy Earnin‘”: Right! I’m seriously considering changing this beautiful game into “Guess-A-Score” or “Don’t-Predict-A-Score” (where the challenge is to put scores so outrageous that the aim is to get the least points possible) as a worrying trend that started to creep in last season is gaining more ground as the weeks go by. What trend(s) is that I hear you ask? Inconsistency. Basic defending. Unsettled sides. Weakened sides. Stupid c*nts getting sent off…I could go on but i’m sure you get the picture & feel my (OUR!) pain. It really is getting to the point where league position and current form mean sweet eff all and what *should* happen is heavily outweighed by the complete opposite. Bah… I’ll cite our very own “Bet of Week” for proof – this week was the lowest in football history for games featuring both teams scoring! Bournemouth had scored for 187 games on the trot until we came along and plonked some money on them… I could cry but all my tears were shed on Wednesday night.
Anyway, suffice to say Mr 2-0 38 (6) won this week & dragged 6 lucky so ‘n’ so’s along with him – woe is me!
“Crumbler”: You know it’s a bad week when Frankie F is positively luxuriating mid-table with 18 points – you’ve really got something to be down about now Nick Hogwood & Steve Meaton 7 (0)
Correct Score of the Week: What can I say… most popular score was Stoke’s 1-0 win over Hull City – 18 of youse got that!
7 got the nil-nil at McDiarmid Park.
5 got the only very predictable 2-1 between Liverpool & Man City.
Four got the quite frankly ridiculous Leeds 2 – 3 Watford.
Ryan Graves got Coventy 2 MK Dons 1(!) & Graham Entwistle got Burton 0 Newport 1(!!)
Andy Fowler (welcome!) got Partick’s fine win over Dundee Utd (!!!).
Paul Carter somehow managed to pull out Blackpool 1 Wigan 3 & Stephen Street used all his lower league knowledge to secure Chesterfield’s shellacking of Fleetwood…
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Howard Thomas for his it-had-nil-nil-written-all-over-it (it didn’t) inspired, Bournemouth 0 Blackburn 0.
Bet of the Week: This week’s 75p trixie went as follows –
3 “both teams to score” selections: Liverpool v Man City 26% / Norwich v Ipswich 16% / Bournemouth v Blackburn 13%
Prize Slot: 65th
Returns: £0. Jeez! At least we got more people doing this though – keep it up people, we’ll get there!
Don’t forget to cast your vote every week but make sure you do it by 10am on a Saturday.
