New year, new start ‘n’ all that, I did my scores from a position of excellent preparation, plenty of research and a knowing that it’d be a week that would go as it ought to go…
But I underestimated the competition.
So apologies for the lateness of this update – i’ve been in shock. And in pubs.
Quite a lot of you clearly knew what I didn’t…
Best of the bunch?
Simon Buxton 42 (7) deftly manoeuvred in front of the other 3 people to score forty points or more this week thanks to Arsenal’s inability to keep a clean sheet. Ever!
That late late twist nicely bookended the Week 1 theme for 90th minute goals affecting huge swaths of PASers.
If you got 30 points or more this week, you were one of 35 – I doff my cap, you jammy…
So, congrats Simon, £20 winging it’s way back to you ASAP – always the best week to win innit!
Did you score 20 points + this week?
Mr 2-0 is in awe…
15 of youse couldn’t manage more than 18 points this week.
Shocking. Even my mum smashed that!
Not as shocking as Senor Sanchez last night though eh?! Koscielny has scored more goals than him this year <smiley face>
One player feeling a bit “Alexis” is Bijay Lama 10 (0).
He crashed to the bottom this week – but he did have four others for company on the zero correct scores naughty step…
The only way is up Mr L!
Correct Score of the Week:
The game is up already…most popular score was Rotherham’s 1-1 draw with Wigan– 30 of us got that!
Twenty two got the feisty Norwich City 3 Ipswich Town 0
19 got the very annoying last minute spoiling (but not for me for once!) Spurs 3 Leicester 1
Sixteen got the 3 goal demolition of Wycombe by Luton
15 were all over the 0-3 to the Man Yoo
Fourteen made us all green by happening upon Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth
12 obviously guessed Hibs would beat Raith 3-1 in the Scottish Cup
Chris D, Reagon K & Prem KC (welcome!) got the dull-all at Hillsborough
Mike K & Justin C got Celtic’s 5-0 deconstruction of St Johnstone
David G nabbed the thrilling MK Dons 2 Swindon 3
However, this week’s (and probably the season tbf) best correct score goes to Tim Payne for his I-know-how-to-open-a-new-season-with-a-bang inspired, Aston Villa 3 Sheffield United 3!
Bet of the Week:
So, we’ve failed epically in the last few seasons but last season…
was pretty good!
This year we’re NOT changing it up!
Whoever is on the “Bet of the Week” position for the following week will be asked to provide a treble selection so we can place the allocated £3 for the bet.
The winnings will stay on that slot and collected by the lucky person residing there at the end of Week 13.
Got that? No?!
The person on 11th will make the selections for Week 2, the person on 33rd in Week 2 will make the selections for Week 3,the person on 45th in Week 3 will make the selections for Week 4 and the person on 65th in Week 4 will make the selections for Week 5 and back round again to 11th…yeah?!
So, Olly Osmond, Ben Hogwood & Jason Morris are all in joint 11th, but Olly O was 1st out the hat.
Olly, I need your 3 team treble by Friday please! Here we go…
It’s Week 1 – it is what it is! Click here for the full table
Please be aware we may lose some players but we may gain some – so if you know anyone out there who wants to get involved, put them in touch! It’s never too late…and we’re really close to that magical 100 player benchmark, so go get ’em people!
