We’re living in strange times right now – strange things like…
Will football end just as Liverpool have re-invented it with a blast from the 80s?
Will we ever be allowed out of our houses ever again?
Will we eventually get sick of eating plain pasta?
And will my quest to win the competition I founded be scuppered just as things look as rosy as they’ve ever been?
Yep, proper strange times…
6 mere mortals passed the 30 point barrier this week and that included Debbie L, a newbie and Fernandez x 2 – so yeah, proper strange week alright!
John K gave it his best shot but was blasted out the water by the strange site, Predictz 40 (8).
Our benchmarking friends, who predict for a living remember, often rival Mr 2-0 for ineptitude.
Strange how they can run a business based on predictions that rarely come to fruition – but they do, so hey…
Anyway, this week’s £20 winner isn’t a real person in our eyes (we did invite them to play “properly” but they have never got back to us) and usually one “lucky” homeless person in MCR benefits instead.
However, sometimes you have to look after your own – so we’re taking the unprecedented step of rolling the weekly prize over to Week 6.
Yep, an emergency board meeting at PAS Towers resulted in the unanimous decision that one PASer deserves twenty quid and enough toilet roll to help them through these troubled times.
Oh, and we may throw some pasta in too if our dark web connect comes through…
Don’t say we don’t look out for you!
Nowt stranger than folk!
53 punters failed to cross the 20 points tracks this week – brutal!
Thirteen poor souls couldn’t muster a correct score between them either.
But at least Sam Arora & Norman Lee 9 (0) had each other for company as they contemplated not reaching double digits and being the worst of the worst…
Correct Score of the Week:
If you got a good one, you got a good one…most popular score was Fulham’s 1-1 draw at Bristol City– 26 of us got that!
Five got the very annoying last minute spoiling Celtic 5 St Mirren 0
Predictz, Stuart F & Dom W got the dull-all at the DW
Matt W & Paul S had Aberdeen’s 3-1 win over Hibs
Brett D nabbed the form book upsetting Swindon 0 Forest Green 2
Mike K got Derby 3 Blackburn 0
Debbie L secretly said prayers the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate at Molineux
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Patricia Fernandez for her I-knew-this-random-method-would-pay-dividends-eventually inspired, PNE 1 QPR 3!
Bet of the Week:
My Mum was on “Bet of the Week” position 65th in Week 4 so we asked her to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
She was too busy organising her 81st birthday bash so granddaughter Frankie stepped up…
So, £4.59 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 65th – result!
Harry Hopper is at 11th this week….
Young Harold, I need your 3 team treble by Friday, please!
Now then, won’t let an 11 year old girl better you, will you..??!
Hira Yonzan stays top, now only 6 points ahead of Howard T who, in turn, is 1 point ahead of Paul C in third…
Three crashed the Top Ten.
Frankie Fernandez remains rooted to the bottom, now ten points behind Darrell S who, in turn, is 3 points away from Neil O…
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 42 places is Dan Wayman – honourable mentions go to Predictz (+34), John K (+40), Debbie L (+35), Greg F (+20) and Rowan M (+21)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 34 places is Norman Lee – dishonourable mentions go to Alex R (-31), Charlie H (-21), Bry D (-20), Lily T (-20), Sam O (-22) and Sam A (-20)

And Another Thing:
What if it really did happen…?!!
Twitter is dead & so is Instagram – but we’ve got a What’s App group!
Well, I send round reminders that you don’t have to check your email for.
Erm…some people are quite funny (some are annoying) & hopefully, we’ll get some good pics of away fans at games.
We will crush any “hilarious GIFs” though…
Plus, you can gloat when you land that 9 pointer in the 91st minute!
