“Granit Xhaka would be an odd presence in any Premier League midfield, a paradox of a player who can look absolutely miles off the pace one moment and only a few miles off the pace the next. What is he doing playing for the seventh richest club in the world?” – Barney Ronay, he knows y’know…
“White Love”: I for one got proper found out for a 2nd week in a row (and that ref who helped me in Week 1 scuppered me this week!).
And I wasn’t alone – only 7 players managed 30 points or more this week!
Gary B did his best to finally win a week after 20 odd years of trying with 2 (count ’em!) 10 point predictions, dark horse Rowan M continued his fine form of late too – only for an 82nd minute Cardiff winner to hand James Challinor 39 (6) the £20 prize money!
Well done James, that’s worth a tweet eh?!
“Breakdown”: Were you one of the 40 who couldn’t muster up twenty points this week?
Too many bad eggs to mention but Tony F 9 (0) and Paul H 10 (0) were particularly rotten.
However, Norman Lee 8 (0) got properly scrambled…
Face. His. On. etc etc
Correct Score of the Week:
Would you Adam & Believe it…most popular score was Burton’s 1-1 draw with Millwall – 17 of youse got that!
13 got the five point Bournemouth 2-2 Newcastle Utd
Twelve just knew West Ham would score against Liverpool for a 4-1
4 nailed Kilmarnock 2 Hibs 2
Clare T & Chris D got the 3 goal demolition of poor, disgraceful, exasperating Arsenal
Neil C got the dull-all at Carrow Road
James C got the thrilling Sunderland 3 Middlesbro 3
Gary B made us all green by happening upon Sheff Wed 2-4 Aston Villa
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Gary Blackburne (again!) for his I-threw-a-dice-for-my-scores inspired, Reading 3 Derby 3!
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?!
We lost! Again! Darn!
58.14% Man Utd V Chelsea – damn that Romelu
46.51% Brighton V Swansea – Eh?!!
46.51% Bournemouth V Newcastle – that’s more like it!
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th – at least we’re consistent!
“Why Don’t You Take Me”: Dan Hogwood stays top still 8 points ahead of Stephen P who in turn is four points ahead of Rowan M in third.
Three crashed the Top Ten.
“Fallen”: Ouch! Rich Walsh goes down one to the bottom two points behind Tony F who in turn is 2 points off Matt W…
“There Goes The Cure”: Highest climber this week, up a whopping 50 places is James Challinor – honourable mentions go to Chris D (+47), Gary B (+39), Pete B (+32), Neil C (+30) and Clare T (+28)
“Transient Truth”: Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 30 places is Norman Lee – dishonourable mentions go to Tony D (-27), Julian F (-26), John J (-23), Olly O (-23) and Paul H (-23)
