“Oooh, that scouse wit…”
Week 12 proved to be one of the best (ever?) PAS weeks in a long long time. It was success across the board and the £20 weekly prize has never felt so well earned!
Twenty five of you scored a sound 30 points or more but the scrap at the top of the pile was mired in injury time joy & pain – a-Maze-ing!
Simon B chipped into the challenge with last minute correct scores thanks to Coventry and Wilf at Southampton, only to find he was undone by Sheff U the night before.
John N saw Palace, Villa and Leicester gift him 13 points at 90+ minutes. Alas, Sheff U and Coventry did for him…
Howard T probably rushed out to put his numbers on as Sheff U (94’), Palace (91’), Villa (93’) and Stoke (94’) netted a hefty 18 last minute points haul. Alas, Coventry’s 91st minute consolation ended that witchcraft…
Martin S crept up on the blind side benefiting from Coventry’s goal but ultimately rueing Sheffield Utd’s 94th minute, totally unnecessary, cherry on the cake third on Friday night.
So, that left our winner ironically cursing Zaha’s 91st minute winner AND that Coventry goal but revelling in an ex-City striker landing a super Sunday 5 points at Spurs in the 91st minute!
Pete Britton 39 (6) you’ve Kelechi Iheanacho to thank for putting you that vital point clear – you know his middle name is Promise, right?!
Back in the real world where last minute goals ALWAYS go against you (yes, I know I got the Spurs one this week but, really, you should see the list of last minute crimes against good honest correct scores I’ve got written down in RED PEN AND UNDERLINED!) it was a chore as usual.
Five PASers couldn’t get more than 15 points and four people didn’t record a single correct score (imagine!)
On a bum note, bringing up the rear this week is the guitar strumming Rowan Marriott 13 (0).
Roland! You need to get out of your shed, fella!
Correct Score of the Week:
My word…most popular score was Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Leicester – 22 of us got that!
Twenty got Millwall 3 Peterborough 0
7 lapped up the injury time joy of Middlesbro 3 Stoke 1
Five(!) doffed a cap to City’s 0-4 deconstruction of Dirty Leeds
4 nabbed the form book upsetting Man Utd 3 Brentford 0
Four more got the 1-3 PNE win over Barnsley
Ben McK & Howard T were well away with the 1-3 away win for Sheff U
Nick H & Mike K somehow stumbled on Sheff Wed 4 Portsmouth 1 (how????)
Kate S made us all green by happening upon Newcastle 0-1 Liverpool
However, this week’s best correct score, and new Best Correct Score of the Season, goes to Greg Fleming for his if-I-continue-to-commit-to-mad-scores-then-mad-scores-will happen inspired, Nottingham Forest 5 Swansea City 1!
Bet of the Week:
Martin Stafford was on “Bet of the Week” position 60th in Week 10 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.
Danny Ashworth 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?!
Martin’s left field darts selection went West…
Michael van Gerwen to beat James Wade – missed the board
Joe Cullen to beat Gerwyn Price – hit the wire and bounced out
Jonny Clayton to beat Peter wright – bullseye
So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 60th leaving it on £3 – meh.
Danny, on the other hand, smashed in a full house!
“Let’s banish the curse of the early kick off…”
Liverpool to win at Newcastle – tick
Preston to win at Barnsley – tick
Sheff Wed to dispatch Pompey – boom!
So, £10.85 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th leaving it on £21.42 – finally, the dream for the BotW slot is realised!!
Lee Taylor is at 33rd this week….
Mr T, I need your 3 team selection by Friday evening, please!
Let’s go out as we meant to go on!
Ben Hogwood still has top spot, but now only a retrievable (?) 5 points ahead of debutant John N, who in turn is three points clear of Pete B in third…
One crashed the Top Ten.
Tim Payne slides one place to the bottom, six points behind Joanne McK, who in turn is 2 correct scores off Patricia F…
Go on Mum! Show ‘em that Katie Taylor isn’t the only girl from Bray who can scrap!
PAS will be, and always has been, impartial during season time…
