WHAT A DING DONG DO.!! - Week 1

OMG. What a weekend of knockout football. The first week of the new mini season was a big one. 45 entries 20 winners. Plenty of big winners. 9 with wins rated over 2.00. and a post Doogie Crystal Palace beauty (more of that later) 

Chelsea have 2 seeing red. Clattenberg has a nightmare!!!!!!! The Merseyside derby has everything other than two falls and a submission but still cannot come up with a winner.  Shock horror! Arsenal win!! Reading and Fulham just won’t give up and have a six goal thriller, Peterborough win at home and Stevenage get hit for four....Pity the poor predictors who have to pick a winner out of that lot. The clocks have gone back....its Halloween...dark at 5 o clock....cold and raining.. CONFUSED.COM!!!!!!

Firstly welcome to the new players and well done to all those competing in higher leagues.

League by League

Pele.

Full house of ten pickers 50% success rate. Matthew Gibbons started well again with Mersey derby draw @ nett 2.25. But I also picked a draw the Reading/Fulham game @nett 2.25. The other successes were Trevor Gibbons magpies home win @0.91 .Ross Jones Gunners @0.33 & Jimmy Smith also safe with Man City @0.22.

Maradona

Eight pickers. 50% success rate. Mirroring the Pele two pickers had 2.25 success. Robert Paton & Chris Blackley Mersey draw & man utd escape respectively. Also winners were Craig Lowe Spurs away @ 0.80.

Nigel Howlett Dunfermline at home @0.44.

Dalglish

Full house of ten pickers. 40% success. Al Smith just takes the early lead with a fine Donnie Rovers away pick @ net 2.50. Just behind him was Mervyn Davies with a great Hearts/Ross county draw @ net 2.40

Ben warman had Newcastle @0.91 and GEEGEE went safe with the Arse @ 0.33. 

Shearer

6 Pickers just one winner.  Bill Imrie takes the accolade with Dunfermline at home @ 0.44. Long way to go yet

Lineker

The scene of so little activity last season starts with two pickers both successful. David Lloyd went with manCity @0.22.safe. Paul Shakespeare went for the early game. A risk in itself .But picked the draw @ net 2.40 between Villa & the Canaries.

Gascoigne

Here could have been the story of the season. If only Robert Kean had been slightly more daring. He picked a draw between Celtic & Killie. He obviously didn’t fancy Celtic to win but if only he had gone the whole hog. Double figures would have been his. Kilmarnock won 2-0. Back in reality Only Darryn Cook was successful with the Arsenal win @0.33.

Pineapple Lee

Here’s where it’s at this week people. 4 pickers 75%  success and the biggest pick of the week by a long way. Tony Griffiths picked managerless Crystal Palace to beat high flying Leicester city how we laughed when we saw that in the list on Friday. But no. He knew all the way.  In 5 first half minutes they wrapped it up. Eventually winning 2-1 @ a nett 5.00. well done.

Also winning here was Chrissy Blackers making it a clean sweep of success for my household for the first time ever. She picked Luton town @ net 1.38 .The same odds for James Holland with Dundee Utd away win at st Mirren. Keep an eye on here.

Lots happening. Keep it up everyone.

Cheers

Al
