“…a handful of good games in three years.” Innit, Wrighty…
Well, that was some week eh?! I did plan to rant & rail but I think it’s all been said already so I’ll rise above it all like the good host I am…
In a week where we only had 29 games due to adverse weather, it proved a sticky for most.
Only seven people managed 30 points or more and all seven were in with a shout for the £20 prize right to the end.
Kate S went close again, Hira Y got a proper nosebleed in rarified heights, Rob C didn’t leave it to Mr 2-0, Neil O reminded us he’s still in the building and What’s App sensation Pete H added to the “new-boy” wave of good predicting.
Steve M had Arsenal’s “draw” to go sooooooooooooo close!
Unfortunately for him, debutant Tom Morley 34 (6) had Rangers to thank for coming from behind to earn him what proved the decisive correct score.
Well done Tom, winnings coming your way very soon – make sure you invest it wisely young man!
If you weren’t stuck in the middle this week, you were stuck in the mire.
15 punters ended up with less than fifteen points.
14 did not record a correct score!
Only two finished out of a double-digit return though…
Sam Arora & Brett Dean 9(0) crossed the line of shame together…
Correct Score of the Week:
So, did you get VAR’d then? …most popular score was Wolves’s 1-1 draw at Newcastle – 27 of youse got that!
Twenty were all over the 3-0 to the Citizens
7 just knew Man Yoo would miss two pens for a 1-3
Five revelled in the schadenfreude of Arsenal’s late late VAR show
4 celebrated the bore draw between Watford & Bournemouth
Danny A, Darren McC & Mike K got Ross County’s “Desmond” at Hibs
Nick H, Paul C & Jamie F (welcome!) thrilled at the thrilling PNE 3 Blackburn 2
Rob C & Bry D landed on the two-two in the Black Country. The wrong side of the Black Country…
Eddie O nabbed the form book upsetting Shrewsbury 1 Sunderland 0
Neil T got the dull-all at the Almondvale Stadium
Kate S said successful prayers to the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate at Hillsborough
Bry D (again!) was well away with the 1-3 away win for Brentford
Kate S (again!) turned up Boro 0 Fulham 0. Then sobbed a little bit as she thought of those poor souls who were actually there.
Joe M had Celtic’s merciless deconstruction of Aberdeen
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Alex Rossi for his day-doo-doh-don’t-day-doh inspired, St Johnstone 3 Hamilton 2!
Bet of the Week:
Greg F was on “Bet of the Week” position 65th in Week 4 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
Bournemouth to win at Watford – X
Millwall to beat Stoke – tick
Salford to beat Scunthorpe – X
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 65th – scratchy.
Rob Currin is at 11th this week….
Roberto, I need your 3 team treble by Friday please!
Let’s get this show back on the road…
Kate Slee moves up 1 place to go 10 points ahead of James C who in turn is two points ahead of Mike K in third…
Two crashed the Top Ten.
John Jennings goes down three places to last spot, one correct score behind Norman L, who in turn is 3 points adrift of Paul H…
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 34 places is new boy Tom Morley – honourable mentions go to Steve M (+20), Neil O (+19), Hira Y (+24), Bry D (+24) and Joe M (+21)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 30 places is Gary Blackburne – dishonourable mentions go to Greg F (-25), Karina H (-21), Brett D (-24), Sam A (-26), Stuart F (-26), Stephen P (-25) and Julian F (-26)
