PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 9 round up

“Take a bow, Aaron…”

 

Blessa:

If I told you Mr 2-0 nearly won this week, you’d despair, right?

If I told you 2/3 of the PAS Board nearly won, you’d laugh, right?

If I told you a Swede who forgot to do his scores nearly won, you’d give up, right?

If I told you last week’s winner nearly won again, you’d cry “fix!”, right?

If I told you a relative newcomer with previous mid-table PAS credentials nearly won, you’d kinda hope it was you, right?

Well, what about if I told you a kid who finished bottom last week turned the ridiculous into the sublime and won? You’d clap, right?

Well Luke Stafford 43 (7) did just that, but you may mute the applause when you hear that of the 21 games he didn’t submit a prediction for, he picked up 4 correct scores! And of the eight games he DID predict, he scooped a 3-0 and that 4-0!

 

Bravo Luka, the £20 is on it’s way! You obviously took my advice on doing your homework last week eh??! (I’m taking a 50% consultancy fee…)

 

Run Baby Run:

I’m just gonna tell you i’m sick of this game…

But not as sick as the 14 punters who didn’t break the 15 point barrier this week.

Or the 3 who didn’t register a correct score.

Or, indeed, Rowan Marriott & Dan Wayman 9 (0) who brought up the rear as the only ones not to get to double figures.

Chin up, chaps!

 

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

Mate…most popular score was ‘Wall’s 1-1 draw at Boro– 27 of us got that!

 

Twenty doffed a cap to Citeh’s 3-0 deconstruction of Everton

6 somehow stumbled on Fulham 4 Barnsley 1 (how????)

David G, Predictz & Mike K celebrated the bore draw between Sheff U & Cov

Mike K (again!) & Luke S will shout out loud about the humbling of Arsenal by Liverpool

 

 

However, this week’s best correct score goes to nobody cos-there-wasn’t-any-unique-correct-score inspiration…!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Dan Clarke was on “Bet of the Week” position 33rd in Week 8, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

He gave us what we want & went leftfield…

 

“With everything crossed that this is more like week 5 than any other week, I would like you to put our money on –

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings (nope)
South Africa to beat England (Twickenham,.not some random baseball match or World series cribbage…) (nearly)
AFC Bournemouth to win at Derby County (unbelievable)”

 

So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 33rd, leaving it on £0  – bah.

 

Richard Hirst  is at 83rd this week….

 

Tricky, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

 

Can you get us a “full house”?! Or half a house at least?

 

 

 

Table News:

What You Want:

Matthew Murphy jumps to the top of the pile, 2 points ahead of Jack B, who in turn is eight points in front of Chris D

 

Two crashed the Top Ten.

 

Causers Of This:

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 8 round up

“Don’t worry Ronnie, I still love you and this is only like Paris 2016 with that moth (except there’s no moth) and look what happened then! Yes, we do it the hard way. We’ll nick through in the last minute of the 2nd leg play off and then go into the obligatory “Grupo de Morte”…but then we’ll win it! Won’t we! Won’t we?”

 

Sunflower:

Did you get the benefit of VAR in San Marino?

Most people didn’t get enough of them tbf.

Lily T did.

Unfortunately for Lily (and another 13 players), a(nother) monster score in Paris put pay to them winning the weekly prize…

Those great eight (goals) meant our friend across the Pond, Mike Krasnowski 46 (3) ensured his two point lead over the desperately unlucky Matthew M as he (ice)skated away with a most audacious of wins for the £20 – some of Canada won’t be dry this week!

 

A Punk:

You know it’s dark days & some of your good pals must be wallowing in the doldrums when you receive a message reading “PAS is making me feel ill…”.

Well, fifteen punters failed to get a correct score this week and Luke Stafford 13 (0) must have looked like one of them puking emoji thingys this week as he trawled in last this week.

Get back to doing your homework Luka!

 

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

I know, right!…most popular score was Scotland’s 0-2 win in Moldova– 24 of youse got that!

 

Eleven will shout out loud about the 8 goal humbling of Gibraltar by Turkey

9 just knew Luxembourg wouldn’t score against Ireland for a 0-3

Six quite rightly predicted England’s 5-0 thrashing of Albania

5 were grateful for the 3-1 Belgian win over Estonia

Howard T, Julian F & Samantha R were well away with the 1-3 away win at Walsall for Harrogate

Matt W & Dave C got the 1-3 Luxembourg win over Azerbaijan

Jazz S & Stuart F somehow stumbled on Armenia 1 Germany 4

Mike K & Lily T thrilled at the thrilling San Marino 0 England 10 (TEN)

Stuart F (again!) had Denmark’s 3-1 win over Horrible Whale Killers

Hira Y got the dull-all at Portman Road

Simon Linds was all over the 1-4 to Poland in Andorra

 

However, this week’s best correct score, and new Best Correct Score Of The Season, goes to Mike Krasnowski (again!) for his go-big-or-go-home inspired, France 8 Kazakhstan 0!

 

Bet of the Week:

Andy Fowler was on “Bet of the Week” position 45th in Week 7, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

He went big…

“Alright son!

My triple prediction
Ipswich v Oxford – draw (yes!)
Wycombe v Portsmouth- Wycombe win (no!)
Tranmere v Sutton – Tranmere Win (no!)
Up the Toffees…”

 

So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th, leaving it on £0  – hmmppphh…

 

Dan Clarke  is at 33rd this week….

 

Dan, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

 

Can you get us a “full house”?!

One won their game with 22 points & 1 lost theirs with 36 points!

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 7 round up

“Farke off!”

 

Bob’s Yer Uncle:

Did you find, literally from the off this week, you were left reeling as score after score filtered throuhg in the polar opposite to what you predicted?

You did, didn’t you??!

In a week where only 7 players managed 25(!) points or more, six of them all had valid claims on the top spot as it came down to a correct score tally difference.

However, when it comes to actually winning, never write off a sleeping giant!

Especially one of PAS royalty!

Our all time PAS top earner friend from the Lane, Jazz Sian 30 (4) cut a swathe through the bleak week and pillaged the £20 weekly prize courtesy of two last minute goals in the Championship!

King J, tip your crown to Messrs Moore of Cardiff and Godden of Cov…

Hail!

 

 

Mad Cyril:

Guess what?! I had a decent week – which can only spell bad news for those other bottom dwellers!

Forty (40!) people couldn’t muster more than 15 points this week with 18 unable to nail down a correct score…

But our current league leader started to crack under the pressure –

Jack Buxton 9 (0) it was only you in single figures this week…

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

Another harsh week…most popular score was Blackpool’s 1-1 draw with QPR– 17 of youse got that!

 

Ten secretly had their prayers answered by the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate of The Saints in Perth

Darren McC, Greg F & Samantha R somehow stumbled on West Ham 3 Liverpool 2 (how????!)

Howard T & Lily T got the dull-all at Goodison

George T & Eddie O were grateful for the 3-1 Blackburn win over Sheff U

Dan C & El Presidente lapped up the injury time joy of Coventry 3 Bristol City 2

Frankie F believed in Arsenal. A 1-0 kinda belief…

Sam O was well away with the 1-2 away win for Reading

Pete H got the 0-2 Motherwell win over Aberdeen

John J made us all green by happening upon Chelsea 1-1 Burnley

 

 

However, this week’s best correct score, and new Best Correct Score Of The Season, goes to Robert Howarth for his I’m-having-my-cake-and-eating-it-too inspired, Dundee 2 Celtic 4!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Neil Templeton was on “Bet of the Week” position 60th in Week 6, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

 

He played (very) “safe” – and won (sort’ve)

“Unfortunately the baseball season is over but my team – Atlanta Braves – won the World Series so not all bad news. Bit like Leicester winning the Premier League.

Anyway, closer to home: Irish League action
To win (keeping it simple in light of recent failures)”
Cliftonville – easy
Glentoran – just…
Linfield – nope!

 

So, £1.13 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 60th, taking it to £3.08  – steady…

 

Andy Fowler is at 45th this week….

 

Andy la, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

 

Can you get us a “full house”?

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 6 round up

“Boo!”

 

You Made Me Realise:

Shall we just call the whole thing off?

Now?

Football is ridiculous.

Newcastle have all the money in the world – but can’t find anyone to spend it, Liverpool made bookies around the world more money in a day than ever before, Sky Sports think Spurs are still “great” cos they’ve got a new stadium and Paddy “out Pepped” Pep!

So putting perfectly logical results down appears to be futile.

What can you do?

Yep, you can guess the rest (see below)…in a brutal week only FOUR players managed to get north of 30 points!

John J & Matthew M ran close and birthday boy Julian F went even closer.

However, Reagon Karki 36 (6) somehow magicked a decent winning tally and won the weekly prize thanks to Wolves’ 2-1 victory over Everton on Monday (I like to think it was his “trust in the process” on Saturday lunchtime personally…)

Congrats Reagon, £20 winging its way to you sir – bravo!

 

 

Only Shallow:

It was grim up north…and everywhere else this week.

Unbelievably, over 50% of the field couldn’t amass more than 15 points this week – proper shocker!

Ten drew a correct score blank.

Four lapsed into a single digit return.

Worst in the worst week?

Our reigning champ Charlie Harris 6 (0) really has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous.

Ouch!

 

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

I’m not playing anymore…most popular score was Leeds Utd’s 1-2 win at Norwich City– 24 of youse got that!

 

Thirteen were all over the 0-3 to Chelsea

8 doffed a cap to Swansea’s 3-0 deconstruction of Peterborough

Darren McC & Dan W got Fulham’s 3 goal demolition of WBA

Dan W (again!) just knew Spurs wouldn’t score against Man Utd for a 0-3

 

However, this week’s best correct score goes to Reagon Karki for his I-bet-this-will-be-a-bright-light-in-Pab’s-bleak-week inspired, Leicester 0 Arsenal 2!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Dave Nicklin was on “Bet of the Week” position 83rd in Week 5, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

 

He played “safe” – but yet another blank!

 

3 wins

Liverpool (v Brighton) – say what?!

Spurs (v Man Utd)  – bye Nuno!

(Newcastle v) Chelsea – yes, but come back Brucie?!

 

 

So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 83rd, leaving it on £6.15  – booooo!

 

Neil Templeton is at 60th this week….

 

Neilster, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

An Irish Premiership spesh? Rugger? Baseball??

Can you get us back on track?! Please? Pretty please?!!

 

 

 

Table News:

Glider:

Jack Buxton stays top, and now a big family sized 17 points ahead of Simon B, who in turn is three points in front of Chris D

 

Two crashed the Top Ten.

Predictz (not even a real player) drops 3 places to the basement, one point behind Moi (oh, the shame – I feel like Cersei in that GoT episode…) who in turn is 2 points adrift of Robert H

 

 

Soon:

Highest climber this week, up a whopping(?) 26 places are Pete Clarke & Justin Corliss – honourable mentions go to John J (+24), Joanne McK (+21), Reagon K (+20), and Sam A (+20)

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 5 round up

“An age-old Scouse taunt gets a re-boot…”
Pic credit: Neil Meredith

 

All Together Now:

It’s getting ridiculous again innit – Arsenal are looking good, Palace fans are questioned over presenting facts & the Tinker Man is up & running after a week!

It’s also getting good again – Harry Maguire got 0/10 in the Manchester Evening News, Norwich are showing some consistency and Arsenal are looking good!

It was also good if you were one of 19 PASers to score 30 points or more this week – there was a real bunfight for the £20 weekly prize until a “newbie” decided to take charge after struggling to actually even save his scores in Week 1!

Our winner strung 32 points together from the last 11 games of the week to blast Jack B, Ben H & Luke S out of the water – Dan Clarke 48 (8) might want to change his moniker to “McClarke” as he predicted 4 out of 6 correct scores from the notoriously random Scottish Premiership on his way to victory!

Congrats Dan – go buy yourself a kilt!

 

 

Don’t Let Me Down:

Football is ridiculous innit – therefore, so must PAS if you were one of 5 punters who scored 15 points or less this week…

Six of you didn’t register a correct score either.

One didn’t get into double figures.

Well, not one of us – our “guest”, the “professional tipping site”, Predictz 9 (0) brought up the rear and then some.

Go with your gut kids, stats mean nothing!

 

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

Wow…most popular score was Leeds Utd’s 1-1 draw with Wolves– 28 of youse got that!

 

Thirteen doffed a cap to Bournemouth’s 3-0 deconstruction of Huddersfield Town

11 got WBA 3 Bristol City 0

4 just knew Brighton would score against Man City for a 1-4

Chris D, Mike K & Luke S banked the five points on offer for the 2-2 betwixt Southampton & Burnley

Sam A, Ric P & Pete H believed in The Arsenal. A 3-1 kinda belief…

Nick H, Patricia F & Luke S (again!) obviously guessed Livingston would beat Ross County 2-3

Paul C & Paul V screamed “Look at me! Yes! Me!” for their Barnsley 2 Sheff Utd 3

 

However, this week’s best correct score goes to David Goggin for his “everywhere-they-go…” inspired, West Ham 1 Spurs 0!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Luke Stafford was on “Bet of the Week” position 33rd in Week 4, so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

 

Another blank –  but not a bad effort for one so young!

 

3 draws

Southampton v Burnley – get in!

Birmingham v Swansea – 8 mins away…

Barnsley v Sheff Utd – 8 mins wasn’t enough…

 

 

So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 33rd  – bah!

 

PAS Towers’ very own Dave Nicklin is at 83rd this week….

 

Dave, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 4 round up

“Congrats Paddy, you’ve passed your audition…”

 

You Can’t Fool Me Dennis:

After the points nirvana of last week’s “International Week”, it was back to a harsh reality for most of you in Week 4…

Last week, the average score was 37 points. And this week?

Only 9 players scored 30 points or more!

And all nine fancied their chances of grabbing the £20 weekly prize too –

Lily T & Hira Y petered out after promising weekends.

Matt W nearly succeeded in a remarkable Mr 2-0 assisted weekly win.

Andy K will bemoan the hapless Eric Dier.

Ben McK won’t be thanking Alex Laca anytime soon as Simon Buxton 34 (5) clung on to victory – courtesy of a 90th minute Hearts equaliser at Ibrox.

That last gasp equaliser robbed Ben of a correct score & his 2nd weekly win!

So, bravo Simon! Looks like that family business motto of “Don’t Give Up, Rise Up!” really is paying off, eh?!

 

 

 

The Boy Who Ran Away:

And flee we did – 54 punters failed to breach 20 points this week!

Thirteen couldn’t buy a correct score (some did ask, but, as always, we rebuffed…).

And, 2 poor souls couldn’t even get into double digits.

Alex T, your blushes were spared by the enfant terrible, Rob Currin 6 (0)

Still “trusting the process” Bert??!

 

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

Man, this is tough…most popular score was AFC Bournemouth’s 0-2 win at Bristol City– 21 of youse got that!

 

Twelve got Blackburn’s “Desmond” with Coventry City

11 we’re so happy for Cambridge Utd 2-2 Ipswich Town they will actually wear that ballet dress…

Nine landed on the two-two in North London. The right side of North London.

Simon B, Chris D & Paul S celebrated the bore draw between PNE & Derby

Matthew M nabbed the form book upsetting Dundee 2 Aberdeen 1

Ben H was grateful for the 0-1 Chelsea win at the bus stop in Hounslow

Matt W thrilled at the thrilling Newcastle 2 Spurs 3

 

However, this week’s best correct score, and new correct score of the season, goes to Ben McKeown for his Si-señor-inspired, Watford 0 Liverpool 5!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Rob Currin was on “Bet of the Week” position 45th in Week 3 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

Sacre bleu!

Ligue 1 special –

Nice to win at Troyes – not Nice!

Lens to win at Montpelier – non – not nice!

Reims to win at Brest – non – not nice again!

 

All a bit merde really Roberto…

 

So, £0 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 45th  – zut alors!

 

Luke Stafford is at 33rd this week….

 

Luka, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please! (ask your dad to send them over!)

You’re not gonna follow Rob’s lead, right?!

 

 

Table News:

Young Love:

Jack Buxton remains top, 3 points ahead of Lee F & his dad, Simon B

 

Two crashed the Top Ten.

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 3 round up

Yep, I’ve ALWAYS supported The Toon…cheers! ££££

 

Feelgood By Numbers:

Ummmm, in a sensational week in football, PAS set its own headlines –  so i’ll cut to chase!

An unprecedented sixty five players scored over 30 points this week!

So you know what’s coming…

20 scored forty points or more!

It gets better – for some…

An unbelievable dozen of youse scored over 50 points!

No one landed in the sixties bracket…

 

However, lords, ladies and gentlemen – we have a new record points holder!

Please doff your cap to Rich Lee 72 (10) who deserves more than the £20 weekly prize for his efforts this week.

Outstanding performance young man – they should build a statue in your honour on the Wirral for that!  * 72 clapping emojis *

 

 

 

Buy Nothing Day:

Ever felt deflated? Missed out by one goal, game after game? Changed a 6-0 to a 5-0 based on getting leathered watching a game in Amsterdam during the 1998 World Cup?

To quote Olive, “you’re not alone”…

Only seven players scored less than 25 points this week (Dan? Dave? Is that a record too??!)

Only two didn’t make twenty points.

Two, amazingly, didn’t get a correct score!

 

Jamie Sellers 17 (0) is properly feeling it this week….

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

I think i’m gonna cry…most popular score was Eng-er-land’s 0-5 win in Andorra– 29(!) of youse got that!

 

Twenty six got Sweden 3 Kosovo 0

22 landed the 6-0 Netherlands shellacking of Gibraltar

Eighteen will shout out loud about the 5-0 humbling of San Marino by Poland

16 had CR7’s merciless deconstruction of Luxembourg

Ten were all over the 0-4 to Germany v North Macedonia

5 secretly had their prayers answered by the “Saints of Nil” for the stalemate in Mansfield

Four got Czech Rep’s “Desmond” with Wales

Dave C, Richard H & Tim P lapped up the 89th minute joy of San Marino 0 Andorra 3

Gareth M, John J & Justin C just knew Ireland would score against Azerbaijan for a 0-3

David G & Norman L banked the five points on offer for the 2-2 betwixt Cyprus & Malta

Reagon K nabbed the form book upsetting Forest Green Rovers 0 Swindon Town 2

 

However, this week’s best correct score goes to Patricia Fernandez for her I-wonder-if-they’ll-all-dye-their-hair-again inspired, Germany 2 Romania 1!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Justin Corliss was on “Bet of the Week” position 60th in Week 2 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

Well, here he is…

“I’ve reached the dizzying heights of 60th. And they say Aussies don’t know anything about football.

Anyway, it seems I need to give selections for the Trixie bet. I have no idea what a Trixie bet is, but here goes, and I’m going to take your comment on board about it not needing to be related to football.

 

Deontay Wilder to beat Tyson Fury (nearly!)

St Helens to beat Catalan Dragons in the super league grand final (happened!)

Scotland to beat Israel, both teams to score (happened – just!)

No doubt you’ll put a few of your own hard earned pounds on this nailed on cert and retire to somewhere in the south of France, or Tuscany or Hull.”

 

 

So, £1.95 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 60th  – better than nowt!

 

 

Rob Currin is at 45th this week….

 

Roberto, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

You gonna follow Justin’s lead?!

 

 

Table News:

Ladyflash:

Jack Buxton moves up three places to the summit, 7 points ahead of Chris D who, in turn, is one point ahead of Mark S in third…

 

Five crashed the Top Ten.

 

A Bee Without Its Sting:

Howard Thomas is down two places to the basement, one correct score behind Sam O, who in turn is 3 points adrift of Matt W

Highest climber this week, up a whopping 58 places is  Ryan Graves – honourable mentions go to Luke S (+54), Tom WS (+51), Paul V (+49), Scott H (+47), Rich L (+45), Lily T (+43), and David G (+40)

 

Bull In The Heather:

Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 56 places is Hira Yonzan  – dishonourable mentions go to Jamie S (-40), Martin S (-38), John J (-37), Nick H (-36), Alex R (-33), and Paul S (-30)

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 2 round up

 Erm, if you got less than 15 points this week…

 

The Best:

After last week’s mediocrity, it had to be a better week, eh? Well, for me at least, no!

Around a dozen people were in with a shout of nabbing the £20 prize (61 punters scored 20 points or more this week – which is good but also a bit rubbish for the others…ahem) but it was my ol’ drinking in Dublin Darlo mucker that managed to steal the accolade by way of that Liverpool thriller – or maybe the fact he had the temerity to put Blackpool down to win. From the ridiculous to the sublime…

Ben McKeown 39 (7) just pipped Lee F and fended off late challenges from Peter M & Steve M – howay!

Don’t be wasting that dosh on stotties, Broon & a St Maxim- i’ll stop now…

 

 

Monster:

We’ve got 92 real people playing this season (well done us & thanx to all who recruited a “newbie”!) but it would seem, with volume, comes complacency!

One third couldn’t manage more than 19 points this week as correct scores were even more elusive than usual.

However, only 2 players registered “zero” in the column marked “CS” – and single-digit scores were attributed to only one.

Which one?

Dan Clarke 8 (1) you really are all alone this week…

 

Correct Score of the Week:

And back down to earth…most popular score was Tim’s 1-2 win at Aberdeen– 25 of youse got that!

 

Eighteen banked the thrilling five points on offer for the 2-2 betwixt Liverpool & Citeh

9 got the Eagles “Desmond” with the Foxes

Five celebrated the bore draw between Derby & Swansea

Five more were grateful for the 3-1 Chelski win over Southampton

4 turned up Burnley 0 Norwich 0. Then sobbed a little bit as he thought of those poor souls who were actually there…

Ben McK & Mark S obviously guessed St Johnstone would beat Dundee 3-1

Reagon K was all over the 0-2 to new boys Sutton Utd

Greg F saw his typo come good on the game at Stoke on Friday

 

 

However, this week’s best correct score (and new Correct Score of the Season!) goes to Rob Currin for his I-like-exciting-posh-things-but-not-United inspired, Peterborough 2 Bristol City 3!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

Dan Hogwood was on “Bet of the Week” position 83rd in Week 1 so we asked him to provide a treble selection for the £3 “trixie” bet.

And guess what?!

 

He went big, and…

 

Boom!

 

Burnley to beat Norwich – ooooooh, no

Reading to win at Cardiff – aaaahhhhhh, yes

QPR to beat PNE – aaaahhhhhhhh, yes

 

So, £6.15 goes on “Bet of the Week” slot 83rd  – great start!

 

 

Justin Corliss is at 60th this week….

 

Mr C, I need your 3 choices for a trixie by Friday, please!

They can be any choice you want btw – BTTS? Goalscorers? A mixture??!

They don’t even have to be football! Horses? American Football? Golf?? Strictly??! Actually…

 

Table News:

 

I Do This All The Time:

Pete Britton moves up four places to the top, 2 points ahead of Lee F who, in turn, is one correct score ahead of Steve M in third…

 

Five crashed the Top Ten.

 

 

Prioritise Pleasure:

Dan Clarke is having a baptism of fire as he drops two places to the bottom, seven points behind Neil T, who in turn is 1 point adrift of Howard T

 

 

Steady I Stand:

Highest climber this week, up a whopping 72 places is  Ben McKeown – honourable mentions go to Peter M (+52), Chris B (+35), Alex R (+33), Bry D (+43) and Simon T (+51)

 

Girl Crush:

Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 44 places is Andy Fowler  – dishonourable mentions go to Rich L (-29), David G (-26), Moi (-26), Ryan G (-35), Lily T (-26), Debbie L (-35) and Luke S (-38)

PAS Lucky 13 Winter ’21 Week 1 round up

 Unlike Forest, Charlie H saw “the wood from the trees” last season…

 

Miracle:

We’re back! With a bang!

No, not Arsenal – PAS!

Although given the lateness of this update, I could wax lyrical about “trusting the process” and how karma works (eh Granit?!) and that if you don’t think Palace v Brighton is a derby then you don’t know nuffink!

 

Anyway…

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

One Geordie quite clearly not in the doldrums this weekend was Dec-a-like (or is it Ant?) Chris Dixon 40 (8) who deftly picked “The Syndicate'” bursar’s pocket just like a little charver at The Hoppings!

Poor Mark S  has West ‘Am’s Michail Antonio to growl at for denying him a weekly win courtesy of that 90th minute goal in (dirty) Leeds.

The irony (or is it coincidence? “Alanis! You about luv…?”) being Chris had 1-2 for the very same match – howay!

 

So, congrats Mr D, £20 winging its way back to you ASAP – should secure you one of natty Saint-Maximin headbands mate…*cheeky tongue out emoji*

 

 

Fix Me Up:

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

Twenty seven of you managed that but 8 punters couldn’t manage more than 15 points this week  – and one couldn’t muster a correct score (I’ll spare your blushed Maffew…)!

Shocking.

Not as shocking as Brucie’s Newcastle though eh?

Ahem…

Two Magpies not feeling any joy though are Simon Turnbull & Ben McKeown 13 (1) – noway!

 

 

Correct Score of the Week:

It’s gonna be one of those season’s again…most popular score was ‘Wall’s’ 1-1 draw with Forest – 25 of youse got that!

 

Eleven got Hearts 3 Livingston 0

8 got the dull-all at St Andrews

Eight more got 3 goal demolition of Posh by Coventry City

Darren McC, Dave C & Patricia F lapped up the first half joy of Arsenal 3 Them 1

Predictz was well away with the 0-1 away win for Wolves

Kate S believed in Citeh. A 0-1 kinda belief…

 

 

However, this week’s best correct score (and best correct score of the season!) goes to Andy Kelly for his do-your-celebration-now-then-Ronnie inspired, Man Yoo 0 Aston Villa 1!

 

 

Bet of the Week:

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

So!

This year, we’re being brave and we’re gonna really shake it up – actually, shake it upside down to be precise!

How?

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 will be collected by the lucky person residing there at the end of Week 13.

Got that? No?!

OK…

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?!

Good.

So, Dan H & Sam A are in joint 83rd, but Dan Hogwood was 1st out the hat. (trust me, it wasn’t fixed…)

Dan, I need your 3 team treble by tomorrow lunchtime please!

No pressure son…

 

 

Table News:

It’s Week 1 – it is what it is! Click here for the full table

Please be aware we lost quite a few players but we can still gain some more (thanks to those of you who recruited the newbies this season – love youse!) – so if you know anyone out there who wants to get involved, put them in touch! It’s never too late…they’ll get a respectable Mr 2-0 22pts for Week 1 to boot!
