World Cup 2006 : Final Standings

Hola! Que pasa? Bueno bueno. El tablo finalio? Donde esta!

Fabio Cannavaro :
It went to the wire between the top two, but Simon Lindquist 5(1) has his correct Final prediction to thank for pipping Dave N to the post. A Swede of sorts, and not the only Scandinavian winner, Simon now has £100 to spend on watching Woking next season (I’d imagine in some comfort with al that money!). Well done! A worthy winner – skol! You will be able to see Simon with the “PAS Cup” when current champ, Mark F has sent it on. Seen Mark F on the “Gallery” yet? He’s up there after his triumph in PAS Lucky 13 Spring 2006 – check out the top!
ZiZou Chestbutt:
Involved in one of the most inept battles this side of Switzerland v Ukraine, Pam Dyson 1 (0) managed to secure the wooden spoon probably only because three members of the Fernandez clan were marginally less rubbish! Dan B deserves a mention here, as our Chelski friend finished second bottom despite his 6th place in Lucky 13 Spring 2006… Pam, the wooden spoon is on it’s way – we want a picture for the gallery!
Correct Score of the Tournament:
Seems so long ago now, but Scott Aslett (Sweden 0 Trinidad & Tobago 0) was never really going to be bettered and wins the prize! Final round mentions to Karl C, Stephen P, Ciaran McG, Will O, Richard L who all got Germany’s lucky win over Portugal… Bitter? moi??
Bet of the Week :
Dave N’s correct score double was nowhere near, so we ended up £1.85 to the good, or we would’ve if I had managed to post up Mark G’s selections on time….

Table News:

Big Movers:
Karl Chartres 8(1) and Stephen Peaston 12(1) both crashed into the Top 7 finishing 3rd and 5th respectively! Tim Clements 5(1) nudged up to 6th. Ciaran McG 8(1) left it too late for a prize, Will O 8(1) just missed out on spot prize and Richard L 12(1) will just have to take heart in the fact that he was one of two people to record maximum points on the final weekend.
Furthest Fallers:
Martin S and Jamie S were left to rue only scoring 1(0) and falling out of the prize positions. Special mentions to Pam R and Julian F who both scored 0(0) – genius!
Spot Prizers:
Super Swede Anders Hoglund (-1), the perennial Jazz Sian (-3) and the lovely, if jammy, Michelle Fernandez (non mover) all finished on spot prize postions 17th, 29th and 39th to win £10 each.


PS – thanks for taking part, remember to come back with at least 2 friends in September for Lucky 13 Winter 2006 (I’ll be in touch), thankyou for all your messages when you send in your scores (sorry I can’t reply to them all, but i like getting them!), lookout for a new webpage that’ll kick off the new season and check out the current site for pics and stats (if you’re sad like me!) – cheers again to Dave N for making it all happen on the super highway…

PPS – Prize winners! I’ll be touch re: payment very soon- congrats again!

PPPS – Special mention of congratulations to Ciaran McGoldrick for the latest addition to his clan (Louis Elijah) and to Chris Tromans on getting hitched to the delightful Susi in Madrid the weekend just gone. Big, and indeed, up!

World Cup 2006 : Final call…

I’m in Madrid from tomorra morning so no more reminders – I’ll update everything when I get back on Tuesday…

My scores:
Germany 3 – 2 Portugal
Italy 0 – 2 France

As you can see by my current form the opposite will happen… and I’ll be happy!

Dave N as league leader is up for the Final bet – here goes…

£5 double on Germany 2-0/Italy 1-0

best odds you’ll get on that is around 47/1

Bon chance!

World Cup 2006 : Only 2 games to go…

Final two games scoresheet will be posted up by Friday – deadline 19.59 on Saturday… if you can be bothered! Having said that, it’s a fight to the finish at the top and don’t forget those spot prizes kids!


ps – Portugal are the England of Latin Europe….boo hoo!

World Cup 2006 : Latest after 60 games…

Italia! Italia! :
He’s still in front, but Dave Nicklin is now only 4 points clear…
Germans Singing That Scouse Song:
Dunno what she thinks about St Cristiano, but Pam Dyson is now 2 points behind in the wooden spoon slot (and you do get a wooden spoon!)
Correct Score of the Tournament:
Still out front is Scott Aslett (Sweden 0 Trinidad &Tobago 0). Nuff respeck must go to Shelley C and Martin S who got the Italy 3 Ukraine 0 result though…
Bet of the Week :
Northern Irelands bookies rejoiced as they claimed back £5 of Neil T’s money when his two acca’s bit the dust – we’re now £6.85 up. Dave N, you can call the Final…

Table News:

Big Movers:
Martin S and Matt W make their charge…
Furthest Fallers:
Richard L basically…
Spot Prizers:
Lisa G (-1), Khalid S (-3) and Michelle F(non mover)


PS – is it safe to wear my Portugal top yet??!

World Cup 2006 : Latest after 56 games…

Quarter Finals next – remember to send your scores to BOTH e-dresses please!
Deadline is Friday (30th) at 15.59.
I’ll be in Amsterdam(age) wondering whether to wear an England or Portugal top this weekend, so the next update won’t be until Tuesday.
Dave will post up the Semi Final scoresheet on Sunday.

Portuguese Men O’ War :
He invented the scoring system and now he’s top! Hmmmmmm. Dave Nicklin 15 (2) moves 7 points clear at the summit.
Switzerland v Ukraine:
She’s probably too concerned on the welfare of her beloved MU babies to take too much care over her scores! Pam Dyson 4(0) is now 1 point adrift at the bottom of the pile…
Correct Score of the Tournament:
Still out front is Scott Aslett (Sweden 0 Trinidad &Tobago 0). Big shouts to Tim C and Julian F (the showoff Final ticket holders) who both got Ivory Coast 3 Serbia 2. Simon L/Dave N/Karl C/Scott A/Stephen P all got Brazil’s cheating 3-0 win over plucky little Ghana – gwan!
Bet of the Week :
We were £5 in the red after Mark F’s treble fell over and in stepped Mark G to make amends. I owe you lot an apology – I forgot to post this up – “Treble on Blue Square of £10 will net you £33.70:Germany to win, Argentina to win, England to win.” Of course the bet is £5, so theoretically we’re £11.85 to the good….next up is heir apparant to the tipster crown, Neil T, who has reliably informed me he’s “caning the bookies of Norn Ireland..”

Table News:

Big Movers:
Karl C/Chris T (+8), Simon L (+7) and Scott A/Neil B (+6). I need to make you aware that Neil T and Olly O both recorded a fine haul of 24 points in the final group stage and were also “big movers” – respeck!
Furthest Fallers:
Me/Matt W (-6). I am officially having an Elms Street!
Spot Prizers:
Anders H (-7), Matt G (-4) and Michelle F(non mover)


PS – I forgot to tell you we had a man in the field during the group stages, here’s what Matt W sent back… “Frankfurt was top drawer the highlight being bumping into Coleen and bouncing a Brazilian Cocktail waitress on my knee… a day out at West Ham spiralled into insignificance after that display…”

World Cup 2006 : Important News

As most of you know, we had a new genius “marking system” created by Dave N that literally saved millions of man hours messing about with paper and colour markers. However, with any new system, there are teething problems (with the users rather than the system!), so we put into place a “failsafe” to erase any incorrect “marking” that blighted last season.

Thankfully, this has paid dividends already as we had the wrong England v Trinidad result on the system and a few players were “robbed” of 3 points. The new table has been amended and will be up on the webpage very soon.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, the offending serf has been tarred and feathered and sent through the dark streeets of Salford….


ps – always worth checking your scores kids – thanks to Steve P for the spot!

World Cup 2006 : Halfway stage

Ar-gen-tina! :
He’s back in the PAS way after a few years in the wilderness, but Dave McSherry 46 (7) has set a pace as scorching as the Bavarian temperatures….
Costa Rica:
He’s frozen in the bright lights of his first World Cup outing with a paltry 17(1) to date, but I’ll wager Julian Fernandez cares very little as he’s probably very over excited about being in Berlin on July 9th with his mate Tim C to watch the World Cup Final! (insert expletive here)
Correct Score of the Tournament:
Very high standard being set and some good shouts for the honour, but Scott Aslett (Sweden 0 Trinidad &Tobago 0) is still out front. Honourable mentions to Dave N/Martin S (Spain 3 Tunisia 1), Chris T (Tunisia 2 Saudi Arabia 2), Karl C (Australia 3 Japan 1) and Dave McS/Chris T (Mexico 3 Iran 1). More than (surprisingly) two players got Ukraine’s 4-0, South Korea’s draw with France, Japan’s 0-0 and Italy’s debacle against USA. I, on the otherhand, have been robbed by 4 last minute goals (sniff, sob…)
Bet of the Week :
If it comes in now, you’ve certainly had a run for your money! Mark F’s £5 treble on England, Ukraine &Czech Republic is still alive – just. Next up for the Second Round Phase will be renowned bookie basher Mark G – there’s your notice Mark, get researching!

Table News:

Big Movers:
Mark F, Dave N (+35), Matt W and Neil B
Furthest Fallers:
Jamie S, Anders H, Simon S (-15), Jazz S and Neil T
Spot Prizers:
Matt G (+5), Khalid S (+5) and Richard L (-2)


Thought of the Week : Don’t bet on “sure things” like Italy v USA – your pockets get hurt!

World Cup 2006 : Here We Go!

Dear PASers,

The window of participation is now firmly shut – there’s 42 of us playing for the nice silver cup (currently held by Mark Fawke – where’s the picture Drazic??!) and more importanly, some moolah….

Around half of you have paid up – thanx!

Can the other half get their money in as soon as please – preferably before Friday….

I’ll announce the prize postions and amounts as soon as all 42 entrants are confirmed.

A few things to note (please read this bit!)

On the scoresheet the times are in CET (we like the Euro thang round here) so all scoresheets must be in by 5pm BST and not 18.00 as stated!

I’ll try and get as many as possible updated league tables posted, but there will definitely be at least one a week.

You will receive the Group Stage 3 scoresheet after the final game of Group Stage 1 &2, which means you’ll have around 17 hours to get your scores mailed in – so be on your toes!

The last game on the 1st scoresheet (Group Stage 1 &2) is on Monday June 19 @ 8pm and the 1st game on the 2nd scoresheet (Group Stage 3) will be on Tuesday June 20 @ 3pm. I suggest you do your scores for these in your lunch hour!

Bet of the Round: As the regulars know, we ask the weekly winners to give us a tip to bet a fiver on – as Mark F is the current League champ – he goes first….

“£5 treble on Ukraine, Czech Rep &England… all to top their groups!” (approx £72 back with Bet 365)

I will be asking table toppers for their bets as the competition unfolds.

That’s it, get your scoers over before the deadline (you know where the scoresheets are don’t you? Eh? Jeeez)

Pab. (my moneys on Italia, with a cheeky e/w on the Portugueeezers!)

ps – Ben A – is you in or is you out?

pps – Neil B – when’s Martin back? Will he have time to do his scores??
