“Some year, ’65…”
I’d like to say it was a lively Week 3 right up to Sunday evening.
But a tightly bunched field of 21 punters reaching & breaching the 30 point mark simply couldn’t make the ground up on someone who had Luton’s miraculous comeback tucked under his belt.
Any one of those 20 chasers could have won it. But they didn’t.
And in the end, those 5 bonus points were all the difference…
That 9 pointer catapulted debutant Pete Clarke 43 (6) right to the top, and there he kept a tight grip on that weekly £20 prize.
Well done Pete – now you know how easy it is to make a profit on this game, you can rope in 20 of your mates next season…<winking emoji>
Over a third of the runners and riders failed to notch up more than 20 points this week.
Thirteen of those suffered the ignominy of collecting zero correct scores…
Those feeling the pain particularly pressing?
Darren McCarthy & Lewis Marriott 12 (0) kept each other company – and shared the blushes.
Nice to see a seasoned underachiever keep a newbie under his watchful eye though…respeck!
Correct Score of the Week:
Some good predicting this week…most popular score was Barnsley’s 2-1 win over ‘Wall– 33 of youse got that!
Four had their secret prayers answered by the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate at Stamford Bridge
Anders H, Moi & Andy S celebrated the bore draw between Palace & Fulham
Rich L, Tony M & Tom M just knew Leyton Orient would score against Tranmere Rovers for a 1-3
Gareth M & Pete B saw their typos come good on the game at Spurs
Paul C was all over the Scottish League Cup Final 0-1 to the history making Saints of Johnstone
James C doffed a cap to PNE’s 3-0 deconstruction of Huddersfield
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Pete Clarke for his this-ain’t-beginners-luck-matey inspired, Luton Town 3 Sheffield Wednesday 2!
Bet of the Week:
Greg Fleming 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 won! Whooo!
So, £4.32 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 33rd – great start!
Norman Lee is at 45th this week….
Normski, I need your 3 team treble by Friday, please! The benchmark has been set…no pressure!
Simon Buxton remains in top spot, now 6 points ahead of Pete C in second, who in turn is three points ahead of Dan W…
Seven crashed the Top Ten.
Current wooden spooner Darren McCarthy falls eleven places to the bottom, one point behind David G, who in turn is 1 point off Howard T…
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 48 places is Gareth Morgan – honourable mentions go to Chris D (+47), Ben H (+45), Pete C (+42), Neil T (+42), Tony M (+40) and Frankie F (+40)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 54 places is Stephen Peaston – dishonourable mentions go to Paul V (-36), Lewis M (-35), Alex R (-34), Greg F (-32) and Samantha P (-31)
