PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’18 Week 8 round up

“We’re gonna score 5 more than you…”


It’s Real”: The What’s App group was alight with groans & moans, near misses and last minute heartbreak as International Week wreaked its merry hell once again!

The more seasoned players yearned for the days of yore when it was pretty much nailed on you’d grab a brace of 5-0s. Well, at least one 4-0.

Now it’s all different!

There’s a new crowd in town, there are no easy games and the new PASers are changing it up & adapting!

19 players managed a respectable 30 points or more (* bow *) with Rob C, Mike K, Martin S & Clare T all staking claims to the £20 weekly prize.

But, with a very creditable 40+ tally, Andy Kelly 45 (8) struck a blow for the newcomers as his 2nd season starts to pay dividends.

And putting the Old Guard in their place to boot…

Viva la difference!


Out Of Tune”: Oooof – the old skool got got!

Seventeen people notched up 20 points or less with Alex T having the ignominy of being the only person not to get a correct score.


One original PASer (I won’t name you Jamie S) had his blushes saved courtesy of Patricia Fernandez 11 (1) continuing her mission for another wooden spoon.

To be fair, she does actually buy them for me, so…


Correct Score of the Week:

Didn’t we do well…most popular score was Eng-er-land’s 2-1 win over Croatia– 41(!) of us got that!

Ten got the very annoying last minute spoiling Germany 2 Holland 2

9 got the 4 goal Macedonia demolition of Gibraltar

Seven got the dull-all in Andorra

Jazz S, Paul S & Mike K got Kosovo’s thrashing of Azerbaijan

Martin S & Moi got the (most excellent) bore draw between Italy & Portugal

Will O & Mike K (again!) got the thrilling Scotland 3 Israel 2

Darren McC got San Marino 0 Moldova 1

Howard T got Denmark 0 Ireland 0. Then sobbed a little bit as he thought of those poor souls who were actually there.

Andy F got Kosovo’s 0-5 deconstruction of Malta


However, this week’s best correct score goes to Joe Shore for his I-study-numbers-for-living inspired, Liechtenstein 2 Armenia 2!



Bet of the Week:

We’ve changed it up!

Pete B was on “Bet of the Week” position 45th in Week 7 so we asked him to provide three results for our “trixie” £3 bet.

And guess what?!

We lost. Again.    : (

3 draws

Albania v Scotland (after that early sending off…)

Italy v Portugal (got the point need *smiley face*)

Turkey v Sweden (Hmmmmm, how did that happen?)


So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th leaving it on £0…oops!


Debbie Lee, you’re up next! I need your 3 team treble by Friday please!



Table News:


Easy”:  Neil Osborne stays top of the table increasing his lead to 12 points ahead of Scott H, who in turn is 1 correct score ahead of Jack B in third.


Three crashed the Top Ten.


Talking Backwards”:  Patricia Fernandez drops one place to the bottom, seven points behind Alex R who in turn is 2 points off Frankie F…


Darling”:  Highest climber this week, up a whopping 25 places is Clare Templeton – honourable mentions go to Kyle B (+20), Me (+20), Andy K (+18), Chris D (+18), Dave C (+14) and Will O (+14)
