“Too Much Too Young”: It was a right ol’ ding dong for the Week 9 spoils, arguably as dramatic as this weekend’s semi-finals & Grand National! You really had to earn your points this week, fully reflected in the fact that only 17 punters scored thirty or more.
Two of those went beyond to the 40 point mark and here’s where it really did go down to the wire!
On Saturday evening, Ben McK looked set to cap a fine week of correct scores with predictions of Wolves and Chelsea wins. All good then up to the 94th minute in the FA Cup semi-final then…
Yep, that last gasp penalty equaliser for Watford was celebrated with the same Troy D gusto by John King 41 (7) as the five-point two-all nudged him into the lead.
And there he stayed.
Congrats Mr King – that £20 gonna inspire a new novel? It’s been a long time…
“Blank Expression”: Quite a different story at the other end of the spectrum this week.
A huge forty-six players failed to score more than 20 points but weirdly, only 3 didn’t sniff out a correct score!
Dave C & Clare T did their best to thoroughly shame themselves in Week 9, but that accolade goes to Patricia Fernandez 10 (0) who is obviously desperate to add to that well earned World Cup wooden spoon from last year…
Correct Score of the Week:
Well done us…most popular score was Aberdeen’s 0-2 win at Dundee– 30 of youse got that!
Nineteen got very the pleasing last minute rewarding Watford 2 Wolves 2
14 got the 1-3 Liverpool win over Southampton
Eight got Hull’s 3-1 win over Reading
6 got the thrilling Norwich 4 QPR 0
Five just knew Wednesday would score against Villa for a 1-3
Mark J B, Simon Lindq & David G were all over the 0-3 to the ‘Gers
Norman L, Richard Hu & Michelle S got the five-point Bristol C v Wigan 2-2
Mark P saw his typo come good on the game at Birmingham City
Gary B believed in Palace. A 0-1 kinda belief…
Greg F made us all green by happening upon Bournemouth 1-3 Burnley
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Richard Hughes for his “do-it-like-Jordan-run-up-and-spark-him” inspired, Huddersfield 1 Leicester 4!
Bet of the Week:
Tim Payne was on “Bet of the Week” position 78th in Week 8 so we asked him to provide three results for our “trixie” £3 bet.
And guess what?!
We lost. Again. But at least he had a go… Derby to win & over 2.5 goals – nope!Forest Green to win & over 2.5 goals – yup!Go Conquer placed in the National – nope!
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 78th – leaving it on £3 for the season.
Kate Slee, you’re up next! I need your 3 team treble by Friday lunchtime please!
Pete Britton remains top, but now only 5 points ahead of Simon B, who in turn, is six points ahead of Dan H in third.
1 crashed the Top Ten.
Patricia Fernandez drops 2 places to the bottom, seven points behind Will O, who in turn, is 1 point behind Joe S…
