PAS Lucky 13 Spring ’19 Week 5 round up

When it’s gone, it’s gone… *

Swim & Sleep (Like A Shark):

I usually take this slot to moan about how much of a shocking week it was to predict scores (basically, it makes me feel better about my shortcomings…)

However, this week really was a shocker – for EVERYONE.

Check it.

Only 20 people scored 25 points or more this week and only 6 scored thirty points plus.

Hmmmmmm…

It lent itself to an exciting £20 weekly prize scrap though.

Ubiquitous Dan H, Nick W & Neil C all had a shout right up to the last game on Monday night.

Steve M & Bijay L probably thought they’d won it…

Alas, a displaced cockney Down Under came up trumps, ghosting in by one point –

Paul Carter 32 (5) you’ve got PEA to thank for holding his nerve on Sunday if you prefer, more dramatically, that 87th minute Killie goal on Monday night!

You little ripper.

So Good At Being In Trouble:

Where a fifth of the league floundered at the top, likewise the bottom feeders were found wanting too.

Twenty PASers totted up 15 points or less and 11 didn’t even register a correct score!

Only one though didn’t manage double digits.

Olly Osmond 8 (0), you’ve done an Ole…

Correct Score of the Week:

Scant reward…most popular score was Leicester’s 3-1 win over Fulham– 21 of youse got that!

Thirteen obviously guessed City would beat Watford 3-1

8 got the 1-3 Franchise FC win over Macc Town

Sam A & Stuart F got the thrilling Southampton 2 Spurs 1

Anders H & Greg F got the dull-all at Loftus Road

Me & Rich L got Motherwell’s 3-0 deconstruction of Hamilton

Frankie F believed in Brentford. A 1-2 kinda belief…

Alex R just knew Swansea wouldn’t score against Norwich for a 1-0

However, this week’s best correct score goes to Justin Corliss for his Toon-always-welcome-an-ex-Mackem-back inspired, Newcastle 3 Everton 2!

Bet of the Week:

We didn’t change it up!

Simon Lindsay was on “Bet of the Week” position 78th in Week 4 so we asked him to provide three results for our “trixie” £3 bet.

And guess what?!

He obviously didn’t read the round up cos he never came back to us!

So, £3 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 78th – it’s a start innit!

Shezan Juma, you’re up next! I need your 3 team treble by Friday please! Pressure off a bit…

Table News:

How Can U Luv Me:

Dan Hogwood is still top, but now a big 20 points ahead of Danny N, who in turn, is three points ahead of Pete B in third.

crashed the Top Ten.

Everyone Acts Crazy Nowadays:

Joe Shore stays at the bottom, five points behind Greg F, who in turn, is 2 points behind Chris B…
