PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’20 Week 4 round up

“Pep King 1 to Arteta pawn 0… <yawn>”


King Without A Crown:

Did you see how well Theo Walcott played on Saturday?!

Only taken him 16 years to re-kickstart his potential then…

And, gallingly, it seemed to inspire those around him.

Vestergaard for one.

His 92nd minute “strike” ultimately compounded my miserable Saturday of sport.

That goal scuppered a tidy 8 team acca to start it and Arsenal succumbed into submission in Manchester to end it.

Woe is me then and woeful was the points haul this week!

In a week where only 2 (TWO) players got 30 points or more, Tony Morris 32 (5) nudged past Danny A thanks to that 90th minute equaliser for that lot at Selhurst Park!

Congrats Tony, and you had that disallowed goal to grin about too – lucky boy!



Tears Are Not Enough:

With correct scores at a premium, half (yes, 50%!) the field failed to reach the fifteen point mark this week.

So, a collective shocker then.

Nine didn’t register a much-coveted four pointer and 20 players didn’t even reach double figures!

Gary McC and Andy C can both thank the hapless Greg Fleming 4 (0) for sparing their blushes…




Correct Score of the Week:

About blooming time…most popular score was Everton’s scandalous 2-2 draw with their neighbours– 26 of youse got that!


Seven got the dull-all at The Hawthorns. Yep, even me…

5 celebrated the bore draw between Boro & Reading

Norman L, Nick W & Karina H were well away with the 1-3 away win for Kilmarnock

Martin S, Kate S & Mike L turned up Dundee Utd 0 Aberdeen 0.

Patricia F got the ol’ 1-2 Huddersfield win over Swansea

Tim P made us all green by happening upon Luton 0-2 Stoke



However, this week’s best correct score goes to Alex Rossi for his there-has-to-be-at-least-one-Desmond-this-week-and-it-won’t-be-the-mighty-Reds inspired, Barnsley 2 Bristol City 2!



Bet of the Week:

Chris Dixon was on “Bet of the Week” position 45th in Week 3 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!


We didn’t hear from our friend in the north    : (



So, £3 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th – not bad actually!



Alex Rossi is at 65th this week….

Al, I need your 3 team treble by Friday lunchtime please!




Table News:

Be Near Me:

Alex Taylor remains top of the shop, now 8 points clear of Dom W who in turn is two points ahead of Danny A in third…


Three crashed the Top Ten.


Poison Arrow:

Rob Currin drops three places to the bottom of the pile, two correct scores behind Mr 2-0 and his followers…


One Better World:

Highest climber this week, up a whopping 43 places is Tony Morris – honourable mentions go to Lily T (+26), Mike L (+26), James C (+23), Jason M (+20) and Andy S (+20)



Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 33 places is Greg Fleming – dishonourable mentions go to Gary McC (-29), Matt W (-23), Angelo H (-22) and Gareth M (-22)
