You can tell it’s the holiday season – people put down crazy scores, crazy scores come in. Mr 2-0 is oversubscribed as people “forget” or drift off into an alcoholic abyss with little chance of predicting succour. Form goes out the window (ahem) & “coupon busters” are celebrated by bookies across the country. So how do you combat this perennial problem?
Don’t ask me, I got marginally more than Mr 2-0 this week (actually I did well this week and feel it’s getting personal on the amount of scores I miss out on by one goal…)
Maybe Jon Tofeili 46 (6) can tell us how he came up on the blindside to swipe the last weekly £20 from a pair of old skooler’s hands?
My money’s on the fact he knew the fast improving Mancs would concede to the reviled Mackems (he is a Geordie!) in the last minute and earn him 5 very valuable points…or it could’ve been that he lucked out on Liverpool 4 Stoke 1?
It’s Christmas, there are crazy scores expected and there’s last minute shopping to be done. Why bother doing your scores?
Tony Davenport & Patricia Fernandez 15 (0) are wondering just that….
Correct Score of the Week:
A decent smattering of correct scores this week….most popular score was Huddersfield’s 2-1 win over Nottm Forest – 21 of youse got that!
Twenty one got the 3 goal demolition of Hamilton by Celtic
20 got the correctly over-hyped 3-0 at Stamford Bridge
Thirteen got Hull 0 Man City 3
11 got the thrilling Brighton 3 QPR 0
Eight got the very annoying last minute spoiling Man Utd 3 Sunderland 1 and 8 more got the 1-3 Granite City win over Motherwell
Four nailed Brentford 2 Cardiff 2
4 obviously guessed Liverpool would beat Stoke 4-1
Four made us all green by happening upon Wolves 3-2 Bristol City
Mark S & Jon T just knew Norwich would score against Reading for a 3-1
David G was all over the awayday 0-2 special to the Cottagers
Bry D believed in Everton. A 0-2 kinda belief…
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Matt Worsfold for his would-you-Adam-and-believe-it-inspired, Preston North End 1 Leeds 4!
Bet of the Week:
So, the “system” spat out 3 draws that were the most popular among the 93 of you who entered predictions and guess what?!
We lost! Again. Ahhh well…
50.8% Rotherham V Wigan – after a 3 goal start….
47.7% Southampton V Spurs – looked good after 2 minutes…
44.6% Leicester V Everton – those masks didn’t work then…
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 65th leaving the total at little Brucie bonus £8.32…
One crashed the Top Ten and highest climber this week, up a whopping 17 places is Tony Bowley – honourable mentions go to Dan P (+12), Jon T (+14), David G (+11) Howard T (+16), Matt W (+15) and Sam A (+11)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 21 places is Patricia Fernandez – dishonourable mentions go to Debbie L (-15), Neil M (-11), Simon Linds (-11), Peter M (-13), Neil T (-11) and Tony D (-11)
Full season update is imminent once I can work out what day it is and when i’m due back work etc.
I’d give it til the weekend if I were you! Whenever that is…
