“Drawn to a close…RIP you Ledge!”
*** spoiler alert! ***
I’m writing this like it’s that sweet time of year just before you open your presents… y’know, to keep it “real” like the halcyon days of pre-Covid!
You can tell it’s the holiday season – people put down crazy scores, crazy scores come in.
Mr 2-0 is oversubscribed as people “forget” or drift off into an alcoholic abyss with little chance of predicting succour.
Form goes out the window & “coupon busters” are celebrated by bookies across the country.
So how do you combat this perennial problem?
Don’t ask me, I had Stoke v Fulham as 1-1 & Arsenal to beat Burnley 4-0…
However, as Liverpool netted an 89th minute penalty (it really wasn’t, was it!) at Selhurst Park , the miracle of Christmas left Predictz trailing in the wake of Martin Stafford 40 (7)
VAR, late pens and 14 points from the last 4 games of the season – ding, dong! (merrily on high)
Third weekly win of the season for the Staffords & 3rd (!) Christmas (Week 13) in a row for Mr S…
I can just copy n paste this then –
“Sawreetferthee M, eeeyafflaff?!
Art suppin bowt?
Best use that twenty quid, eh?!”
Here’s the science bit – 8 of youse managed 30 points or more.
It’s Christmas, there are crazy scores expected and there’s last minute (online) shopping to be done.
Why bother doing your scores?
Me, Ben H, David G & Mike K are wondering just that in a week where 5 of us only managed no more tha 15 points.
Someone who really didn’t have a Scooby this week was the usually high achieving Tony Morris 10 (1) – don’t let The Syndicate run you down T, come back brighter!
Correct Score of the Week:
Slim pickings…most popular score was QPR’s 1-2 win at Coventry – 22 of youse got that!
Nineteen go the very annoying 89th minute spoiling, outrageous ,Crystal Palace 1 Liverpool 3
10 doffed a cap to West Brom’s 3-0 deconstruction of Peterboro
Ben McK, Frankie F & Pete C got the dull-all at Gander Green Lane
Pete B & Rob C thrilled at the thrilling Bristol City 3 Cardiff City 2
Sam A & Eddie O obviously guessed Wigan would beat Gilliongham 3-2
Rich L was well away with the 1-3 away win for Mansfield
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Yours Truly for my at-effing-last-i’m-back-baby inspired, Southampton 1 Man City 1!
Bet of the Week:
Danny Ashworth was on “Bet of the Week” position 60th in Week 12 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
And guess what?!
We struck again!
So, £6.55 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 60th leaving it on a merry £9.63!
Great effort from all our BoTWers this season.
Say it quietly, but I think we may be onto something here…or maybe not.
Two crashed the Top Ten!
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 19 places is Martin Stafford – honourable mentions go to Dan W (+18), Predictz (+14), Pete B (+11) and Pete C (+11)
“Too Late Now”:
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 13 places is Tony Morris – dishonourable mentions go to Paul C (-11), and Bijay L (-10)
Full season update is imminent once I can work out what day it is…
Actually, I’ll get it done before you the new season starts – honest!
