PAS Lucky 13 Spring ’15 Week 8 round up

I Want To Dance”: Fifty. That’s, ahem, a big number innit (more about that on a later date..). You’d think securing over a half century of points would get you a weekly prize though. Well, you would. I would. Does Tony M? Nope. How about Jon T? Uh-uh. Nah, it was always gonna take a big number to win an international week and those old skoolers amongst us always shudder at the mere mention (isn’t funny how you always miss by just that *one* goal?). So, new boy Darren Banham 59 (8) unlocked the £20 this week no doubt justifying his decision to join our fold to boot! Congrats Darren, welcome to PAS – go tell your friends how easy it is to win money in our beautiful game…


Hot Water”: Being a disciple of Mr 2-0 is always a dangerous liaison and so it proved for 8 of you this week. International week! How many 2-0s did you really think there would be??! Anyway, you can feel a bit better about that blunder cos Josh Hirst & Dave Crisp 15 (0) did even worse than you!



Correct Score of the Week: … most popular score was Slovakia’s 3-0 win over little ol’ Luxembourg – 22 of youse got that!

21 got Andorra 0 – 3 Bosnia

20 got the hammering meted out to Lithuania at Wem-ber-lee.

17 got the very predictable 3-0 between Switzerland & Estonia.

4 got Hungary 0 Greece 0 and four got the five-nil in Brussels.

Four more pulled out a plum with Slovenia’s shellacking of San Marino!

Stuart F/Simon Lindq/Mark S  got Kazakhstan 0 Iceland 3 and Debbie L & James C got the bloomin’ 1-1 draw in Prague that brought down my 14 team acca – arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhh!!! Sorry.

Ben McK & Darren B got Austris’s fine win over Liechtenstein.

Debbie L (again) somehow managed to pull out Romania 1 Faroe Islands 0.

Andy F nailed Holland’s 1-1 against Turkey.

Graham E surpassed himself with the two-two between Bulgaria & Italy

However, this week’s best correct score, and new best correct score of the season, goes to Stuart Fitzsimon for his I-knew-they’d-score inspired, Scotland 6 Gibraltar 1.



Bet of the Week: This week’s 75p trixie went as follows –

Votes: 33

3 matches with over 4 goals selections: Slovenia v San Marino 23% / Georgia v Germany 21% / Scotland v Gibraltar 19%

Prize Slot: 65th

Returns: £3. I won’t bore you with the details but between me missing a deadline & finding a bookie actually offering odds this didn’t happen – £3 in the pot it is then!

And Another Thing:  We’ve had a few players experiencing a few issues in the last two weeks. The horror!

So as a safety net can you please do the following NEXT time you open the predictions page to input scores

when using a PC/Laptop

“Ctrl + F5”

or Mac/Apple

“Apple + R” or “Command + R”

You’ll then notice the team whose score you are inputting will now be highlighted in bold just so know exactly what team you are inputting scores for! Genius I say…

And, although we employ plenty of minions at PAS Towers we’re not as all-seeing as we’d like to be yet, so if you do spot a mistake, anomaly or glitch etc. please DO shout up – don’t be shy!


Did you know you can email your scores to yourself every week?

Well you can! And if that appeals to your inner pedant (like me!) then just click the “Email” button at the top of the predictions page! Job done.


That’s it for this week – oh, follow us on @PabsPAS if only to see those late scores rolling in every week. you know, the ones that make you squeal or shriek in equal measure!


And remember to add #pabpas to see your tweet on the site – actually some away game pics would be good this season. Or some pics of away fans. Or home fans. Or just the match. Or players you’ve met. Anything footy related to be honest…
