PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’17 Week 5 round up

Yes, you can…

Jack The Ripper”: Wha’d’ya think is worst? Watching Arsenal churn out the same old turgid inept 45 minutes so familiar & ingrained that it really is like Groundhog Day every home game – the slow build, the sideways movement (Jordan Henderson come join us!), the fascination still with trying to get that perfect goal and the inevitable “rickett” that gives the away side a goal…

OR, forever walking away at full time pondering “why can’t we play like that in the first half as well?!!” after a 2nd half display sooooo much better that it can only make you feel we need a 45 minute warm up before kick off (surely Alexis would get all the tight circle turns out of system by then too right?!!)

OR, sitting next to the PAS League leader – smarting as he regales how the Baggies have just secured a 9 point haul with a 92nd minute goal AND how he “told you Liverpool would win 3-0..” whilst you hope & pray you actually beat Mr 2-0 this week as getting over 20 points looks like a pipe dream once again…

My “dilemma” was of no consequence at all to the 4 people who scored over 30 points this week (and probably to everyone else too – woe is me!) as newcomer Kyle B looked to have a debut season weekly win in the bag thanks to his 2-0 Sunday prediction at the King Power.

But Monday proved to be blue, claret & blue actually, as Jack Buxton 36 (7) deftly swept home with a Burnley correct score to take this week’s “Roger” from right under Mr B’s nose…

Jack’s back people, Jack’s back!



Still Life”: How “worst” can you get? Seven bods could only muster 10 points or less this week! With no correct scores…shocker!

Worst still, David Goggin 6 (0) is a Gooner too…and I thought it was just me!



Correct Score of the Week:

Kinda settled down this week – most popular score was Brighton’s 1-1 draw with Southampton – 30 of youse got that!

12 got the 3-0 trouncing at Anfield

Six got the dull-all between Lincoln & Crawley

6 more got the late late show Crystal Palace 2 West Ham 2

Four got the Rangers renaissance at Hearts

4 more predicted the stalemate that was the “Second City” derby

Rowan M obviously guessed Watford 0 Stoke 1

Howard T nailed the 9 pointer at Deepdale

Dave C lucked out on WBA 2 Man City 3

However, this week’s best correct score goes to Stephen Peaston for his “Greenock did this once”, Celtic 1 Kilmarnock 1!



Bet of the Week:

So, the “system” spat out 3 draws that were the most popular among the 97 of you who entered predictions and guess what?!

We won!!! Yay!

Brighton v Southampton (46.91%) – ol’ Murray is mint!

Palace v West Ham (46.91%) – go on Wilf!!

Dundee v Hamilton (46.91%) – not even a red card could stop Hamilton winning away – boooo!


So, £7.55 on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th!
