Spring 2008 : Cup SF & L13 Week 9 – Review

Play Up!:
Remember this from Week 7? “…Norfolk in way! He’s racking up the money and weekly wins – Nick Hogwood 40 (7) collects his third prize of the season and crashes into the Top 5 to boot. And obviously hacks off his brother at the same time…” Well, it’s happened again in Week 9, 41 (7) and now he’s top! The Jazz is dead, long live the Colonel!
Ecky Thumped!:
Remember this from Week 7? “…Ahhh, bless! Our fave girl from Cymru (after Charlotte, natch) always asks for a mention and she’s ended up here again – nevermind, Lisa Grey 10(0) has got the memory of the grand slam to soften the blow…” Well, this didn’t happen again – John Williamson 14(1) will be delighted with his return to form when he returns from the Land of the Rising Sun in a couple of weeks…
Correct Score of the Week:
7 got Nottm Forest’s 3-1 v Cheltenham, Dave McS, Stephen P & Anthony Y got the Toon’s return to proper Keegan football, Mark G got Sheff U’s 3-0 v Leicester and Howard Thomas got this week’s best correct score with Fulham 1 Sunderland 3
Bet of the Week:
Hurrah! We won! It may only be £6.25 but we’ll take whatever we’re given! Well done to Clare N for providing 4th in the National and taking the current situation to minus £3.75. Over to you for the third time of asking Nick…
Table News:
Nick Hogwood glides up to first with a 1 point lead over Neil M. The high and the low happen mid-table, Mark G (+8) and Jamie S (-9). Ben A is where you’ve got to be for automatic Euro 2008 involvement and Martin Stafford has his best week for ages but still finds himself 12 points awash at the bottom.
PAS Cup Semi-Finals:
This year’s Cup Final will be contested between Neil Meredith and Mark McDowell – the latter just getting the better of Mark J B and the former comprehensively trouncing Matt D. Well done chaps, just wait and see what you’ve got to predict for the final!


Spring 2008 : Cup QF & L13 Week 5 – Review

The Romance Of The Cup:
Well well well, he’s the first to get a “double” this season – Dave Nicklin 28(5) just edged out Mr 2-0 and his 9 mates to take another £20. Well done Dave, but that’s 3 out of 5 weeks won by the PAS board – people will start to talk…
One Wheeled Bike:
He’s employing a maverick scoring system and it’s not paying off! Anthony Yearwood 7(0) completes his own double at the other end – he doesn’t care though, Spurs are good again apparantly!
Correct Score of the Week:
Bleak week. 10 of you got the only real one that was predictable (Liverpool 3 Toon 0) and everyone missed out on the W Ham banker again! Dave N gets this week’s props for his Blackpool 2 Southampton 2…
Bet of the Week:
…and despite his winning week, he can’t deliver us a winning bet! Nevermind, he gets another go and hopefully he’ll put some effort in to improve on our £5 in the black.
Table News:
Will O stays top opening up a 7 point lead. Steve T is this week’s biggest improver on the back of Mr 2-0 and Lisa G is where you got to be for automatic Euro 2008 involvement. Julian F couldn’t care less falling furthest as his kness have gone all trembly cos he’s on his way to Wemberlee, and one of our two Wiganers is now bottom. Yes, that’s you Martin S!
Cup Results:
Would you Adam & believe it! Two players went through courtesy of the increasingly annoying Mr 2-0 and one player got through on 14 points! Big up Mark McD though who smoothed an impressive path through with 14 “Joker” points – that’s the way to do it!
Cup Draw :
Mark McDowell (8) v Mark J Brown (6)
Neil Meredith (27) v Matt Davies (11)
Semi-finalists please note everyone gets to play a “Joker” in this round

Spring Cup 2008 : Round 2 Results

Congrats to the winners, now into the QF’s and guaranteed money!

You have to feel for Anders H who went out with the 3rd highest score and marvel at Mark McD who went through with the 4th worst score…

Back to the League next week and from now on EVERYONE will send in a scoresheet EVERY week.



Spring Cup 2008 : Round 1 Result

Congrats to those who progressed to Round Two on Feb 16/17 – As predicted I crashed and burnt at the first hurdle for the 57th year in a row – Woe is me… :-(


Spring Cup 2008 : Just to clarify…

If you are in the Cup (you can tell by the draw if you are – i.e. if your name is in the draw that means you are playing!) you are also in the league (PASL13S08) which starts for 13 weeks on w/e Feb 2nd – total cost of entry £20

If you are NOT in the Cup (you can tell by the draw if you are – i.e. if your name is NOT in the draw that means you are NOT playing!) you are ONLY in the league (PASL13S08) which starts for 13 weeks on w/e Feb 2nd – total cost of entry £25

So, to sum up, the CUP scoresheet being sent on Tuesday night should be filled in and sent back by the deadline by players in the CUP ONLY!!!

End of lesson. Goodnight. Have a nice weekend before the madness starts next week, an enjoyable madness I think you’ll agree…


PS – poll is being put together this weekend – promise!
