No, not them…
“Life In Tokyo”: 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 & “coupon busters” are celebrated by bookies across the country. So how do you combat this perennial problem?
I don’t care – I wooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssssssssssssss!
Sorry. It doesn’t happen very often, I forget how to celebrate… *wheels off doing the Mick Channon windmill arm *
So, as Harry M netted in the 94th minute v Man Yoo to deny me 4 points AND Stoke’s youngest ever PL scorer denying me another 3 points in the 95th minute, I was ready for a proper good sulk.
But the miracle of Christmas left Stephen P, Jerry S & Andy K all 1 point behind me and the last weekly “Patrick” was mine! Mine!!!
Pab 38 (6)
Ding dong (merrily on high)!
I’d like to thank Gary Bowyer for instilling the hunger & desire in his Blackpool team to keep going until the very last kick….
Here’s the science bit – 15 of us managed 30 points or more.
“Quiet Life”: It’s Christmas, there are crazy scores expected and there’s last minute shopping to be done. Why bother doing your scores?
Paul C & Danny B are wondering just that in a week where 28 bods only managed 15 points or less.
Someone who really didn’t have a Danny this week was Danny Ashworth 9 (0) – and if you’ve seen his Sky Super 6 performance this season you’ll be as baffled as him!
Correct Score of the Week:
Some crackers here…most popular score was Man City’s 4-0 title winning win v Bournemouth– 27 of youse got that!
Eleven got very annoying last minute spoiling Leicester 2 Man Utd 2
7 got Celtic’s 3-0 deconstruction of The Dons
Seven more got the five point Aston Villa v Sheffield United 2-2
6 got the dull-all at McDiarmid Park
Five got Derby 3 Millwall 0
Will O, Sam A & Kyle B got the bore draw between Newport & Lincoln
Paul V & Ryan G believed in Kilmarnock. A 2-1 kinda belief…
Predictz somehow guessed Everton 0 Chelsea 0
Stephen P got the thrilling West Ham 2 Newcastle Utd 3
However, this week’s best correct score, and now best correct score of the season, goes to George Triantafillou for his I-couldn’t-let-a-kid-take-this-accolade inspired, Arsenal 3 Liverpool 3!
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?!
Sheff Wed v Boro (54.93%) – adios Carlos!
Stoke v WBA (46.48%) – adios Super Al…
Brighton v Watford (39.44%) – adios Marco?
So, £7.55 sits on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th!
“The Art Of Parties”: Two crashed the Top Ten and highest climber this week, up a whopping 26 places is Darren McCarthy – honourable mentions go to Andy K (+25), Jerry S (+24), Stephen P (+22), Ryan G (+22), Neil O (+19), Savan A (+19) and Ben McK (+18)
“Visions Of China”: Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 18 places is Danny Ashworth – dishonourable mentions go to Eddie O (-16), Paul C (-15), Rich L (-14), Harry H (-13), James L (-13) and Danny B (-13)
