Another old-skool PAS week (in that a lot of scores went the way they were supposed to!) meant that it was a close congested field once again.
Despite that, only 9 players (including me! Yes. Me!) scored thirty points or more.
This kind of form has definitely come too late for most (moi, again!) and maybe we’ll have one last competitive round for the end of the season… which looks like it may be just in time (gulp!)
Anyway, eight of us got a bit giddy at the thought of winning the £20 when the last game was postponed due to Covid (actually, will we get the last week in? Should we abandon the season if we don’t??!) but what we didn’t bargain for, was one PAS old-skooler’s relentless march to the top with quite an astonishing performance!
Ryan Graves 42 (7) quietly notched up his correct scores with a flurry of 1-1, 2-1 & 1-0 scorelines and only failed to predict the correct result of eight games!
Bravo mi Bromley (or is Beckenham?!) amigo – will that “score” contribute to a punt on a Liverpool treble this season??!
At the other end, 15 punters couldn’t manage any more than fifteen points this week.
Twelve shied away from a single correct score but thankfully the shame of not getting into double figures was swerved this week.
So, who had their head hanging in embarrassment?
Darren McCarthy & Mark J Brown 13 (1) brought up the rear togevver. So they can hold hands in some sort of Mersyside harmony PR…
Oh… Wait! Mr McC doesn’t support Liverpool anymore! Scratch that then…
Correct Score of the Week:
Didn’t we do well…most popular score was Derby’s 1-0 win over Blackpool– 19 of youse got that!
Eight got Birmingham City’s “Desmond” with Cardiff City
7 celebrated the bore draw between Stoke & Middlesbro
Six banked the five points on offer for the 2-2 betwixt Bradford City & Sutton Utd
4 doffed a cap to The Arsenal’s 3-0 deconstruction of Southampton
Paul C & Moi got the dull-all at Turf Moor
Mike K & Tim P nailed the last minute Hull City 2 Bristol City 2
David G said “Look at me! Yes! Me!” for his Crystal Palace 3 Everton 1
Richard H thrilled at the thrilling Ross County 3 Dundee 2
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Patricia Fernandez for her it’s-like-1970-all-over-again inspired, Chelsea 3 Dirty Leeds 2!
Bet of the Week:
Norman Lee was on “Bet of the Week” position 45th in Week 11, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
It was close…
“I hope this reaches you – these are my three for bet of the week
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th, leaving it on £0 – do not land here next week!
Danny Ashworth is at 60th this week….
Daniel(san), I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!
Give us some Christmas cheer!
Jack Buxton makes his move and goes 6 points ahead of Matthew M, who in turn is nine points in front of Chris D…is it a one horse race now?
Two crashed the Top Ten.
Eddie Osborne stays bottom, now four points behind Robert H, who in turn is 3 points adrift of Predictz…
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 20 places is Richard Hirst – honourable mentions go to Ryan G (+19), Neil O (+12), Paul S (+11), and Julian F (+10)
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 14 places is Darren McCarthy – dishonourable mentions go to Dan C (-11), Rob C (-10), and Anders H (-10)
