L13 Winter 2012 : Week 13 Final Table News

Thanks again for taking part – I hope you’ll join us for PAS Lucky 13 Spring 13 in February…

All prize winners – money will be winging its way over very soon – congrats!

Happy New Year!:
He pretty much led throughout the whole campaign and only looked catchable for one which a fabulous way to conduct your debut season! Through gritted teeth(!) let’s congratulate Spurs supporter Steve Meaton on finishing top of the pile. Buying yourself one of those “Mind The Gap” tee-shirts with your winnings?!
Mr Meaton had an 11 point lead over the old stalwart Richard Hirst in second place (I think you’ll be back in favour with the syndicate now Tricky!), who finished seven correct scores above an even older stalwart (& now RVP lovin’) that is Olly Osmond in third place.
Dave Crisp has done an Arsenal finishing in fourth place (not a trophy in PAS either!) ahead of Neil Osborne who will be a bristling Blade finishing 5th two points above Sam Arora in 6th (second season he’s smashed his brother!)
Tony Morris improved 30 places on last season to notch seventh place 5 correct scores above Will Oppong in eighth (which really could be “doing an Arsenal” this season!), who in turn finishes 1 point above the inseparable pair “Woking Wonder” Simon Lindquist & “Croydon Door Legend” Howard Thomas in joint ninth. Spare a thought (just a small one mind, he’s got broad shoulders) for Tony Bowley in 11th place, just one point shy of the “big prizes”…
Happy New Year?:
The battle of the bottom was pretty much as cut n dry early doors as first place! Mr 2-0 takes the wooden spoon this season (exactly where he should always be!) 14 points adrift of Neil B – oh dear, oooh to be a Wiganer!
Spot Prizers:
OK, IT IS Week 13, you HAVE won these prizes! Paul Campbell added to his Week 4 win at 12th (£25), Danny Ashworth is at 17th (£25), Ryan Brady & Paul Henshaw shared 23rd (£11.50 each), Simon Buxton is at 26th (£23), James Challinor is at 31st (£23) securing and paying for his PAS Cup entry, Felix Hines is at 34th joined by Ben Hogwood (£11.50 each) and Josh Hirst carries on his annual earning in 36th (£20). More sharing on 42nd between Frankie Fernandez & Stephen Street (£10 each), Jon Tofeili is on 50th (£15) adding to his Week 5 win, Simon Lindsay is on 54th (£20), Jamie Sellers on 60th (£20) and Siri Ofstead recoups (£20) at 65th. Norman Lee on 67th (£15), lucky Dave Nicklin is at 71st (£25) and even luckier is Jay Hoskinson on 75th (£20). Neil Birchall takes the last £20 on 82nd!
Bet of the Week:
A bit more success this season! Rich Lee finished on 11th and picked up a fiver for his troubles! Charlie Harris can take some consolation finishing on 33rd between Cup qualification and £23, by landing a massive two quid, Jack Buxton & Rich Lee on 47th shared £14 and Louise Briggs in 66th unfortunately will get nowt for all her efforts!
PAS Cup 2013:
In order to be invited to enter the PAS Cup 2013 you had to finish in the Top 32 after 13 weeks of play. Sneaking the last spot is… Savan Arora.

Congrats to Group winners (A) Dave Crisp, (B) Tony Bowley, (C) Andy Chesworth, (D) Jon Tofeili, (E) Pete Britton, (F) Sam Arora, (G) Stephen Street and (H) Simon Buxton.

L13 Winter 2012 : Week 12 Roundup


I shall be planning all this a bit better next year! Thanks for your patience…

Week 13 scoresheets by Boxing Day 11.59 please – last one of the “Winter” season so you might as well try and win the £20!

“At your primitive best”:
With uncanny timing and week after “registering the best joker EVER” to no avail, Clare Templeton 37(7) wins her obligatory seasonal cash and progresses in the CL after weeks of letting Mr 2-0 do her leg work… #inspired
“Cool pools drown your mind”:
A pretty bleak week for lot of PASers to match the Mayan weather – particularly so for Nick Hogwood 7 (0) #bahhumbug
Correct Score of the Week:
Merry Christmas?… – most popular score was Kilmarnock’s 1-1 with Hibs – 21 of us got that!
Seven got the 2-2 at St Andrews and 11 got Celtic’s 4-0 victory v Ross County.
Jazz S & Gary M got the 0-0 between Sp*rs & St*ke. Jamie S & Stuart F got Swansea 1 Man Yoo 1.
Gary M (again!) got Palace 1 Huddersfield 1 & Norman L Liverpool 4 Fulham 0.
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Siri Ofstad for her inspired, Inverness CT 4 Dundee 1.

Table News:

“The jewel, the prize”:
Steve Meaton stays top with a 7 point lead over Olly O who in turn is 8 points ahead of Richard H in third as the title race comes to a boil. Neil M crashes the Top Ten…
“What have you done to her?”:
Mr 2-0 stays anchored at the bottom now 14 points behind Neil B who in turn is 2 correct scores off mark J B as the wooden spoon race is surely now concluded…
“They said, I’d be impressed”:
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 18 places is Neil Meredith – honourable mentions go to Howard T (+10), Scott H (+11), Jazz S (+14) and Jack B (+10)
“What else will you find?”:
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 18 places is Nick Hogwood – dishonourable mentions go to Simon Linds (-11), Stephen S (-11), Danny A (-13), Jamie T (-12) and Ian P (-14)
PAS Cup 2013:
In order to be invited to enter the PAS Cup 2012, you will have to finish in the Top 32 after 13 weeks of play. Currently sneaking the last spot is…”it’s Nottm not Notts!” – Charlie Harris.
Bet of the Week:
Ooooh so close! Man U & a half dead RVP let us down on the away selections – shall we blame Ashley Williams??!
PAS Champions League 2012/13:
See site for full results. Skin. Of. Teeth. Yeah, it was that close for so many of us – read ’em and weep time for a lot of you. Scott H’s 16 point joker was all in vain, Jamie T will be cursing Clare T actually submitting scores, Gary M nearly staged the comeback of all time but was scuppered by the other (holder) Templeton, Lousie B just abot saw off Dan P, I had Dave T to thank for beating Simon Lindq and Jamie S joins Ben H & Will O on the CL record of P6 W0 – amazing!
Knock Out stage draw to follow…
And Another Thing:
There will be a Poll!

Merry Christmas!

L13 Winter 2012 : Week 11 Roundup

“I will dance the night away”:
It was that long ago I can’t really remember the drama that unfolded on Week 11! My hunch that our youngest competitor would win came through though, so well done to (baby? toddler?) Mahli Gupta 46(6) the £20 is yours! Spend it wisely sunshine, I think your granddad deserves a pressie…
“Tell me will I ever learn?”:
I bet Tony Smith 6(0) was hoping I couldn’t remember what happened in Week 11…

Bet of the Week:
The “Hitman” missed… thrice!
And Another Thing:
Here’s one for the poll from Daniel H…

Hey Pab, we were wondering. You ordinarily give the weekly prize to a tramp if by some chance Mr 2-0 wins it. The question however stands would you give the wooden spoon to one?

Question of the Year??!

Group H
Scott Harrison v Simon Lindsay / Danny Ashworth v Simon Buxton

Home people, really don’t forget your Joker, it could make all the difference!


L13 Winter 2012 : Week 12 Final Update!


Yes it was a shambles, yes it’s not acceptable and yes, it won’t, ahem, happen again…

3 reasons why Week 12 had to be abandoned

  1. Some people who submitted the original (wrong) scoresheet were unable to submit the amended correct scoresheet = unfair
  2. We couldn’t ignore the wrong fixtures & play with 24 games as that favoured those at the top = unfair
  3. I’m a spaz = fair

So, please rest easy and refrain from telling me “you’ve had your best week EVER in PAS” cos its over, we move on and play Week 12 this week!

Week 13 will now take place on Boxing Day so you can work off that festive feast on Christmas Day by poring over league tables & current form – don’t say I don’t look after you!

Yours humbly,
El Presidente
