PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’17 Week 1 round up

 “Yep, as impressive as my score this week…”

Magpie Eyes: I did my scores from NYC this week & even going back in time couldn’t halt my demise. I blame it on that confusion. And Americans with guns. And Duane Reade. And the full length of Broadway. And Coors Light. And the 90-degree heat. And Guinness. And “Farmer Boy” breakfasts. And the tourists surrounding the “Bull”. And American football. And Tibetan monks in Central Park.

I don’t blame Williamsburg though – I was on Modelo there…

Anyway, one person quite clearly not in the US of A this weekend was me ol’ China Matt Worsfold 35 (5) who deftly picked debutant child prodigy Tyler G’s pocket just like the Fagin-schooled Eastender that he is –  cor blimey guv’nor!

Poor Tyler (he’s of south London stock, he’ll bounce back) has Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko to growl at for denying him a weekly win courtesy of his 91st minute goal in Huddersfield. The irony of Spurs helping out a ‘Appy ‘Ammer ain’t lost on me, nor Mr W I’m sure…

So, congrats Maffew, £20 winging it’s way back to you ASAP – should secure you a Championship season ticket for next season mate…*cheeky tongue out emoji*

Dive: Did you score 16 points + this week? Wow, I’m in awe…

33 of us couldn’t manage more than 15 points this week and sixteen of us couldn’t muster a correct score between us! Shocking.

Not as shocking as Everton though eh? The team I backed to be top at Christmas (yeah, I have a real instinct about the Premier League) appear to be trying their best to make sure Yannick Bolasie doesn’t miss being at Palace.

One Toffee feeling it more than most though is Andy Fowler 8 (0) who couldn’t even breach the double-digit mark – come ‘ead Andy lad, did you put in too many number 10s like Ronald??!

Correct Score of the Week:

It’s gonna be one of those season’s again…most popular score was Man Yoo’s 4-0 drubbing of Palace – 23 of youse got that!

8  got the five-point 3-0 between Aberdeen & St Johnstone

5 got the dull-all Grimsby v Lincoln

4 got very very annoying but patently obvious Huddersfield 0 Spurs 4

Darren McC (welcome back!), Paul C & Tony D got the 3 goal demolition of Partick (by Motherwell)

Alex R & Debbie L got the bore draw between Cardiff & Derby

Neil T & Martin S nailed Bournemouth 0 Leicester 0

Bill P pulled a plum with Everton 0-1 Burnley

Danny A just knew Man City would score at Chelsea

Sam Craig obviously guessed Ross County would win 0-2 at Kilmarnock

Neil O got the first “Desmond” of the season – PNE v Sunderland

Neil T got the 2nd “Desmond” of the season – WBA v Watford

Howard T smashed in a 0-4 via Burton hosting Wolves

However, this week’s best correct score goes to Patricia Fernandez for her i’m-the-real-one-not-the-Corrie-one inspired, Celtic 2 Hibs 2! Slainte!

Bet of the Week:

So, the “system” spat out 3 draws that were the most popular among the 90 odd of you who entered predictions and guess what?!

I couldn’t get a bet on cos i was in New York – soz!
