Congrats to Shaun Backhouse on winning the PAS Cup a year on from being a runner up – Shaun pockets £100 whilst Nick H will surely be happy with £50 for his troubles…

If you look at the current table you’ll see the age old adage of “cream rising to the top” reflected in the fact that the two all time top PAS earners are currently sitting in the sliver & bronze places. One them has even gone on to take this week’s honours – yep, he’s back! Jazz Sian 32 (5) did just enough to oust Nick H & Neil T to secure yet another £20. Surely he can’t win another league title and get this trophy back… can he??!
“Indeed a fool of mine”:
Sp*rs fall foul of dodgy decisions. Simon Lindsay scores 8(0). Schadenfreude? Moi? Ha ha ha….
Correct Score of the Week:
Who’d of thought we’d win 1-0? Actually, no one… most popular score was Liverpool’s 3-0 win over the Magpies – 13 of you got that! 10 got the 2-1 at The Hawthorns, 5 got Doncaster’s 1-1 v Leicester and 4(!) got Celtic’s 4-1 against Dundee Utd.
Jess H / Pab / Mahli G got the 2-2 between Sheff U & Barnsley and Pete B & Michelle F got Kilmarnock 2 Hearts 2.
Michelle F (again) got Leeds’ win over Burnley and Jess H nailed Hibees 1-2 at home to The Saintees.
However, this week’s best correct score this week goes to Sam Arora for his inspired St Mirren 0 Hamilton 1.
“Tastes like gold”:
Stuart Longworth stays top 3 points ahead of El Presidente & Jazz S with Neil O a further 2 points back in fourth. Could this be the year I win my first ever league title after 21 years of trying?
“I found low”:
Julian Fernandez stays bottom of the pile now only 5 points (maybe he’s not doomed!) behind the Arora brothers who are still neck and neck in the sibling disgrace race…
“Heaven smiles above me”:
Highest climber this week, up a whopping 12 places is Neil Templeton – honourable mentions go to Pete B (+8), Nick H (+10), Mahli G (+10) and Will O (+10).
“Pleasantly caving in”:
Falling furthest this week, down a whopping 12 places is Simon Lindsay – dishonourable mentions go to Josh H (-5), Richard H (-5), Gary B (-6) and Dave C (-7).
PAS Champions League 2011/12:
In order to be invited to enter the PAS Champions League 2011/12, you will have to finish in the Top 32 after 13 weeks of play. Currently sneaking the last spot is… the Norn Iron Diablo Rojo – Neil Templeton.
Result for the Semi Final replay attached – congrats to both finalists!
And Another Thing:
Why oh why did we have to win and help that lot from West London out?!
You don’t even begin to know how much that Orient goal has done my swede in! They got a replay, I was robbed of one…! Congrats to all the winners – they will be in the hat for the Quarter Finals draw… Frankie Fernandez again doing the honours.
6 players using Man City or Leicester got 2 points where those two choosing Arsenal & QPR could only grimace!
Simon Lindsay 34 (4)
Tony Bowley 15 (1)
Narrowest Winning Margin:
Nick Hogwood v Pab – 1(0) – Nick’s name must be on the Cup, that’s two rounds he’s won by a point now!
Biggest Winning Margin:
Neil Templeton v Will Oppong – 8(3)
Biggest score not to go through:
Jason Morris 32 (4) – the Morris curse strikes again!
Quite an eventful weekend eh?! Our own Cup competition is proving equally interesting – an absolute ding dong thriller in the Universal Records derby, a couple of let offs for those who didn’t get a scoresheet in, including the Geordie derby and everything to play for in most of the other ties. Jason M carries the biggest lead into the 2nd leg games and there were hi and lo scores from Simon Lindsay & Dan Pelgrom respectively…
2nd leg scoresheets – back to me by 19.44 on Friday 4th Feb please!
