“Play with matches, you get burned…”
Current PAS champ throws down the gauntlet
It was a lively Week 3 right up to Sunday evening.
A tightly contested field was bunched together as 14 punters reached & breached the 30 point mark.
Any one of those 14 could have won it.
Then came the goal-fest at The Emirates…
That 9 pointer catapulted John Jennings 42 (6) right to the top, and the 2 goal West Ham haul on Monday made sure he kept a grip on the weekly £20 prize.
Well done Mr Jennings – it could be argued that the only scoreline you failed to predict on coming up trumps and that 90th minute Swansea goal was the real difference for you, but y’know…<winking emoji>
Over a third of the runners and riders failed to notch up more than 20 points this week.
Eight of those suffered the ignominy of collecting zero correct scores…
Those feeling the pain particularly pressing?
Gary McCarthy & Ric Pardoe 10 (0) kept each other company – and shared the blushes.
Correct Score of the Week:
Wowsers …most popular score was Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat of Spurs– 25 of us got that!
Fifteen were grateful for the 3-1 Celtic win over Kilmarnock
9 doffed a cap to Wolves’ 3-0 deconstruction of Norwich
Eight got Man Yoo’s 3 goal demolition of Watford
8 more believed in Swansea. A 3-1 kinda belief…
Six had Charlton’s 3-1 “Paul Walsh derby” win over Luton
5 banked the five point 2-2 betwixt Brentford & Blackburn
Five more said “Look at me! Yes! Me!” for their Arsenal 3-2 Everton
Martin S, Paul C & Dom W turned up Hamilton 0 Motherwell 0. Then sobbed a little bit as they thought of those 2,531 poor souls who were actually there.
Norman L & Reagon K made us all green by happening upon Burnley 3-0 Bournemouth
Danny A nabbed the form book upsetting Leicester City 0 Manchester City 1
However, this week’s best correct score, and new Correct Score of the Season, goes to Rowan Marriott for his I-did-my-scores-whilst-running-38-miles-whilst-carrying-my-youngest-whilst-moving-house inspired, Birmingham City 3 Sheffield Wednesday 3!
Bet of the Week:
Norman Lee was on “Bet of the Week” position 33rd in Week 2 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
We didn’t get a reply!
So, £3 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 33rd – decent start to be fair!
Jamie Sellers is at 45th this week….
Mr Baba Louey, I need your 3 team treble by Friday, please!
Sam Arora moves up 1 place to the summit – 1 point ahead of Hira Y who, in turn, is three correct scores ahead of John J in third…
Five crashed the Top Ten.
Ric Pardoe plummets nine places to the basement slot – two points behind Frankie F who, in turn, is 6 points away from Chris B…
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 49 places is Scott Harrison – honourable mentions go to Paul H (+41), John J (+41), Jerry S (+41), Tony M (+36), Neil T (+33), Predictz (+30) and Andy C (+30)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 33 places is Chris Dixon – dishonourable mentions go to Gary McC (-32), Bry D (-30), Dave N (-30), Olly O (-28), Gareth M (-28), Glynn F (-27), Dan W (-26) and David G (-25)
