Pete thinks its all over - trouble is it weren't - Week 6

Picture the scene people. Pete Cornwell siting in his palacial lounge puffing a big cigar thinking this predictor lark is a piece of piss. Theres 9 minutes to go and his selection, Barnsley, are 2-0 up against Ipswich. He's thinking another 1.75 in the bag. But wait. Pete forgot one thing that saturday afternoon. Football is officially 'a funny old game'. The tractor boys get two back to draw and the last 100% record goes down the swanny.

Dong Zheng comes up with a great pick to win pick of the week the Man Utd/Fulham draw @5.00. (i'm still laughing from the last time, oh my sides...)

Chelsea go top with a Hazard hat trick (lovely flick pass from Eto'o) Liverpool well what can i say, fuck me they know how to play these big games at the moment eh. I feel a bit for the two pickers who thought 'you know what Arsenal away @3.25 is real value i fancy them for a win' 4-0 after 20 minutes!! unbelievable Jeff.

I must admit one of the highlights of the weekend was when Stephen Warnock raised his arm as if to say 'yeah absolutely meant that, get in' when the wind blew in his 40 yard free kick for Leeds winner in really windy Yeovil.

And what about Palace, OMG they are almost mid table!! way to go TP.

In the leagues.

Pele

Andy Ewart looks to be on target for the title with another good win Udinese at home @0.73. Darryn Cook in 2nd kept it going with Liverpool @1.10.Didier segovia won with Burnley at home @0.57. at The bottom Tony Southworth (who??) climbed out of the relegation zone with Palaces win against WBA @1.38

Ross Jones & Mervyn Davies were both postponed. And oh no Steph! What happened? You got your trademark pick back and it didn't win.!!!!

Top two lost out but Mono Guerillo took advantage and moved into 2nd with the mighty Leeds away @1.2. Hodgie333 won with Burnley @0.57 and also Nick Lines with a safe bet of chelski @0.29

Dalglish

Two big winner among the victorious here. Jim McLean must have thought he had pick of the week when he got the scottish cup draw between Stranraer & Inverness CT @3.50 but no! He didn't even pull away from his closest opponent as Duncan weighed in with a german draw Freiburg & 1899 Hoffenheim @2.4 Those two look to be having a private battle for the league title. Jimmy Smith moved up a coupel of places with Liverpool @1.10 and James delahunt stays third with Burnley @0.57.

Shearer

Malcolm heads the list with the 0-0 bore draw between Middleboro & Blackburn @2.20. Bill Imrie stays in 2nd with Sheffield United @0.73 Nigel Howlett wins with Lincoln City away @0.80. Sohail Virdi had the popular pick of Burnley @0.57. Ian Booth was postponed.

Lineker

Zach did well here, he picked out the Monaco & PSG draw @2.25 he is well ahead. Lee Denson went one better picking Southampton & Stoke draw @2.75

Neil Bourne was the only other winner who went with Leeds @1.20.

Gascoigne

Just one winner here. The best of the week. Dong Zheng with his faith in Fulham repaid @5.00. He storms to the lead. Gareth Hedges was postponed.

No winners in either the Jason Lee or Ali Dia leagues.....

A quick mention for Dave Jones in the Holdsworth who went with Spurs @1.00

Stick around Dave.

Cheers

Al
