“No. You’re The Boss…”
“Black Magic”: Does persistence pay off? Does practice make perfect? Does standing over someone with a massive stick to beat them with until they do it get results? Or does a bit of guidance make a difference? Maybe a bit of persuasion and explanation on why you do things helps? A colour coded “form guide” trigger the dropping of the penny? Or is it just random luck?
Who knows, but Francesca Fernandez 41 (9) became the youngest ever PAS week winner whisking away the £20 prize by astoundingly predicting 6 out of the last 8 fixtures correctly!
I’m gobsmacked given I only managed yet another mediocre score despite devising the said “form guide” for her to “follow & apply”.
The 13 others who scored 30+ points will be gutted too, but not as gutted as little Frankie will be when I break the news that the £20 “can now pay for her entry fee” – mwwahhh hahaha….
“Little Me”: Actually my 25 points wasn’t a bad return on what turned out to be a horror week!
Five people couldn’t even manage 15+ points but at least they notched a correct score…
Sam Craig 11 (0) limped home last this week nicely bookending Frankie’s “girls on top” mantle. Awwwwwwww.
Correct Score of the Week:
Things are looking up…most popular score was Ipswich’s 1-1 draw with Leeds – 25 of us got that!
12 nailed Bradford 2 Bolton 2
7 got the correctly over-hyped 1-0 at The Den
4 got the two-two in Southend. The, erm, wrong end of Southend…
Mark J B , Arthur H & Richard H believed in Spurs. A 0-3 kinda belief…
Sam A, David G & Alex T got Wigan 0 PNE 0. Then sobbed a little bit as they thought of those poor souls who were actually there (not that many tbf)
Patricia F & Tony D somehow guessed Dundee 2 Rangers 1
However, this week’s best correct score, goes to Steve Meaton for his I-paid-up-just-in-time inspired, Hearts 1 Inverness C T 1!
Bet of the Week:
So, the “system” spat out 3 draws that were the most popular among the 90 of you who entered predictions and guess what?!
We lost! Again! Booooo!
68% Partick V Hamilton – Mr 2-0 was in there…
56% Birmingham V QPR – what is the Fonz doing???!
50% Bradford V Bolton – the only disappointment was it not being 0-0…
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th – eeeeeek!
“Salute“: Jerry Storer moves up 1 place to go 4 points ahead of Kate S who in turn is seven points ahead of Peter M in third.
Five famously crashed the Top Ten.
“Shout Out To My Ex“: Simon Lindsay remains bottom of the pile 2 points behind Paul V who in turn is 1 point off newcomer Paul S…
“Touch“: Highest climber this week, up a whopping 38 places is Rowan Marriott – honourable mentions go to Frankie F (+28), Ric P (+37), newcomer Danny N (+20), Dave N (+23), Bry D (+20), Scott H (+31) and Mark S (+24)
“OMG“: Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 39 places is Sam Craig – dishonourable mentions go to Lee F (-22), Rich L (-21), Chris B (-20) and Pete B (-20)
