PAS Lucky 13 Spring ’16 final table round up!

Final Table News:

“The Bomb”: It was one hell of a ding dong at the top for pretty much the whole season but it was a real dark horse that ultimately timed his run on the rails to perfection! He started way down in 65th, climbed to 28th, then back into mid table mediocrity until Week 6.

Once ensconced in the Top 20, he gradually went up to 13 – only to drop in Week 8 to the hellish depths of seventeenth! (God, imagine…57th was a dream for me!)

However, a recovery up to 10th was cemented and once he hit the Top 10 in Week 9 he stayed there!

Climbing to 6th, then 3rd before a slight blip down to 4th…and then –

Hats off & congrats to Danny Ashworth 314 (42) – you’re a winner!

Danny ended on a 3 point lead over another dark horse (with the same moniker) Dan Pelgrom in second place, (who, impressively,  wasn’t out the Top 11 after Week 3!) who in turn finished 5 points ahead of Nick Hogowood in third place. Another dark horse, who isn’t called Dan (but has a son who is), left it late to crash the Top 10 but hung in there from Week 9. A fine season for 2nd & 3rd as they are currently contesting the PAS Cup Final too…

Just two correct scores further behind, Tony Bowley & Pete Britton  couldn’t be separated right up to the end after a whole season of being side by side (usually in the Top 3) finishing in fourth spot with now perennial prize money botherer, Peter Morley scooping 6th place just another 3 points shy. A nice add to his PAS Cup semi-final appearance.

Old skooler Charlie Harris & syndicate topboy Jason Morris were another duo who couldn’t be split in 7th just another three points behind. A nice add for Jason too, after a PAS Cup semi-final appearance…

Only another three points behind, newcomer John King finished in ninth (a fine debut sir!) and another 1 point back, another newbie Lee Ford (another fine debut sir!) landed in 10th place netting the last of the “big prizes”courtesy of a measly 5 correct scores… *smiley face*


“Danger UXB”: You have to say even our champion couldn’t possibly be more happier then the rest of us to see  Mr 2-0 189 (11) rooted to the bottom 8 points adrift of the field. Our fictional foe takes the wooden spoon much to the relief of myself as it’s saved me having to “make” another wooden spoon…(you can’t give it to someone who doesn’t exist can you?! Can you?)

Anders H & Juian F made gallant efforts over the season to save Mr 2-0’s blushes but to no avail – good lads!


Spot Prizers: OK, YOU have finished on these positions and you HAVE won those prizes!

Scott Harrison on 11th, Dave Nicklin on 12th, Kate Hopper on 17th, Sam Craig on 25th, Savan Arora on 33rd, Predictz on 34th, Alex Taylor on 38th, Gary Blackburne on 49th, Shashi Arora on 60th, Debbie Lee on 67th, Moi on 78th, Sophie Bracegirdle on 80th & Julian Fernandez on 82nd.

PAS Lucky 13 Spring ’16 Week 1 round up

Lazurus”: Many moons ago (1994 actually) I was nervously prepping for my best man’s speech trying hard to find that balance between witty & smutty, factual & fabricated and sincere & piss take. Turns out I was fabulous but it was the summing up that really caught everyone’s attention – something along the lines of “may your union last as long as humans have belly buttons, rain in Manchester and bacon in Denmark (don’t ask)…” But the real coup de grace of sentiment came in the last line “or as long as it takes Sp*rs to win the League!” The applause was deafening.

My mate got divorced last September…

Anyway, others feeling the dread weight of Sp*rs re-emergence were our numerous City fans – a bad couple of weeks for the club That Ruined Football (TM)  culminated in a comprehensive defeat at the hands of our friends from The Lane. However, one of them, Pete Britton 36 (6) had reason to afford a smile as he picked up the first weekly £20 of the season not least thanks to a dubious decision wiping out a Jordan Rhodes strike in the (old skool) Yorkshire derby!

Well done Pierre, with me winning two prizes on your wonderful “Dream Team” game already this season, people will begin to talk…

Black Star”: Do you like betting? Do you? Feel like you’re a mug punter awash in a sea of stats & experts? Ever thought that even a little bit of research might improve your chances??

Well Predictz 6 (0) tells you otherwise this week! The “go to” site for all things football predictions ( got it horribly wrong in Week 1 to the extent of giving Debbie L a run for her wooden spoon! (Actually Debbie got 16 points this week – in context, that’s like you or I getting 100 points. Well, maybe not me. Or Gary B. Or Rowan M. Or Neil T. Or…

Correct Score of the Week:

Quite a few correct scores knocking about in a generally poor scoring week… most popular score was Arsenal’s 2-1 last gasp defeat of Leicester – 17 of youse got that!

12 got the ol’ 1-2 at the Etihad

5 got the dull all between Charlton & Cardiff.

Dave C/Clare T/Chris D got the “Desmond” involving Norwich & Charlton.

Howard T & Pete B got Brighton’s, erm,  shellacking of Bolton?

Dave N & Clare T (again!) got the 0-0 in’t Rothrum

Chris D (again!) got M K Dons’s lovely little 0-1 at Derby

Pete B (again!) got the bore draw Leeds 0 Boro 0

Jason M somehow managed to pull out Hamilton 0 Dundee Utd 0!

However, this week’s best correct score, and therefore best correct of the season so far, goes to Rich Lee for his South Yorkshire inspired, Sheff Wed 4 Brentford 0.

Bet of the Week: We got a new system. We tested it last season. It works. We actually won some money to swell the “BotW” prize slots! And, best of all, you don’t have to do anything at all (well, except put your predictions in on time!)

We’re going again in Week 2!

Expect the bookies to be cowering from our £3 trixie!
