PAS Lucky 13 Spring ’22 Week 1 round up

 Jack The Lad didn’t muddy the waters last season…can you take his crown?




We’re back! With a bang!

No, not Arsenal again – PAS!

Although given the sharpness of this update, I could’ve waxed lyrical about “trusting the process” and how karma works (Granit! Jose is on the phone…) and gone into the absurdness of that new handball rule <sniggers, thinking of OT…>


But I won’t…

I’ll cut to the chase as it was all about the Swedes this week – and, they deserve a break from pillaging, right?

One Viking quite clearly not in the long boat this weekend was Simon Lindquist 47 (6) who deftly mashed a compatriot just like Hagar The Horrible!

Poor Anders H has Bournemouth’s Siriki Dembele to growl at for denying him a weekly win courtesy of that 95th minute goal in Blackpool.



So, congrats Mr L, £20 winging its way back to you ASAP – should secure you one of those natty horned helmets that your ancestors didn’t actually wear…*cheeky tongue out emoji*




Did you score 30 points + this week? Wow, we’re in awe…

Thirty one of you managed that, but 10 punters couldn’t manage more than 15 points this week  – and eleven couldn’t muster a correct score!


Not as shocking as Mr 2-0 though eh?


Five disciples of the blanket score also not feeling any joy are Tom Wooldridge-Stevens, Paul Henshaw, Neil Critchlow , Alex Rossi & Dan Hogwood  9 (0).

@Dan – you’re suspended from your duties pending a Board enquiry… *rolls eyes emoji*



Correct Score of the Week:

That, mis amigos, is a strong start…most popular score was Bournemouth’s late late 1-2 win over Blackpool– 23 of youse got that!


Twenty one had Celtic’s merciless deconstruction of Raith Rovers

19 just knew Norwich wouldn’t score against Man City for a 0-4

Sixteen were well away with the 1-3 away win for Hibs

13 got West Ham’s “Desmond”(RIP) with Leicester City

Eleven were all over the Scottish Cup 0-3 to Dundee

9 doffed a cap to Rangers’ 0-3 deconstruction of Annan Athletic

Four had Swansea’s 3-1 win over Bristol City

John J, Justin C & Dom W banked the five points on offer for the 2-2 betwixt Forest & Stoke

Jason M, Paul C & Predictz got the dull-all at that bus stop in Hounslow

David G & Rowan M celebrated the bore draw between Port Vale & Northampton

Mark J B & Tim P got Birmingham 3 Luton 0

George T was grateful for the 0-1 Liverpool win over Burnley

David G (again!) turned up WBA 0 Sheff Utd 0. Then sobbed a little bit as he thought of those poor souls who were actually there.

Luke S secretly had his prayers answered by the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate at the Kirklees Stadium

David G (again! again!) believed in Fat Frank. A 3-0 kinda belief…

I said “Look at me! Yes! Me!” for my little brother approving Portsmouth 4 Doncaster 0


However, this week’s best correct score, and therefore Best Correct Score of the Season, goes to Pete Clarke for his I-just-knew-there-was-a-nine-pointer-on-offer inspired, Reading 2 Coventry City 3!



Bet of the Week:

So, we’ve failed quite spectacularly in the last few seasons on this – actually, we’ve always failed.

But last season, we did alright. Welllllll, alright(ish)…


We’re being brave and we’re gonna stick with it to see how we go!


Whoever is on the “Bet of the Week” position for the following week will be asked to provide a treble selection so we can place the allocated £3 for the bet.

The winnings will stay on that slot and collected by the lucky person residing there at the end of Week 13.

Got that? No?!


The person on 83rd will make the selections for Week 2, the person on 60th in Week 2 will make the selections for Week 3,the person on 45th in Week 3 will make the selections for Week 4 and the person on 33rd in Week 4 will make the selections for Week 5 and back round again to 83rd…yeah?!


So, youngster Sam Osmond is first up. (ask your Dad first Sam!)

Sammy, I need your 3 selections by Friday please! It can be a home, away or draw. It doesn’t have to be football! It can be horses! Or dogs! Or fighting crickets! But not cricket…that’s a step too far!

Let’s get off to a winning start for a change.

No pressure lad…
