I’m finding it hard to describe the current state of the Premier League season. There are only a few games left and usually by this time we’re enjoying silly season where form tends to go out of the window and predictions become harder and harder. I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t really feel like that at the moment. The only side down at the brown end of the table who looks to have a belly full of fight is Leicester – they’ve got the fourth best form in the league and have punched their way to a position of safety. So their wins have less been the seemingly random happenings that come at this time of the year and more just a really decent run.

If it’s not silly season, then this week went to plan, right? Lots of nice high scores? Er, no. It was a horrible weekend for punters, with just five making it into positive territory. The reason for this was a story of stalemate – half of the results this week were draws. Dividend Forecast: Possible Jackpot.

Climbing to the top of a relatively low hill this week was Wainwright with 34 points. Wainwright was the only punter to hit the target with two 10 point bets, namely the wins for Swansea and Man City. Three other results and a single score topped up the total and provided a winning margin of 24 points over Gripweed in second.

This is Wainwright’s third Punter of the Week performance which takes his Amazonian winnings to an eye-watering £30. And that looks likely to increase as this week’s resulted in a rise of 2 places in the League to 3rd. Excellent stuff!

In other news, the draw for next week’s tPs Cup semi-final has been made. Bob takes on JennyG while Jono faces Flookyflood, all trying to make it to the two-legged final which will take place in the last two weeks of the season.

And finally, two punters were still alive going into this weekend’s round of Sudden Death, and both perished. Oh dear. So it’s time for us to all re-spawn ready for another dust-up starting next weekend. Fun!

Barnes: Ever since Australia became better than us again, it seems. Doesn’t seem fair somehow. (27/04 16:21)

Rob: Wait, we’ve got the Ashes again this summer?! When did this become an annual contest? (27/04 12:02)

Barnes: Late reply to the FFF

1) Not on your (or anyone’s) Nelly

2) I’ve never been a great runner. Probably about 5km – never measured it, through the woods near Cirencester Park.

3) Still holding (to my knowledge) the all-comers record for the S.E. Gloucestershire cub-scout’s 50m sack race. Unfortunately I don’t think that the IAAF ever ratified it.

4) Answering this on Monday morning makes this answer a little bit easier, Burnley and QPR are pretty much gone. I have a funny feeling that Sunderland might scrape above the line with a record low points score, a lot will depend on what sort of effort Chelsea make in their last game of the season with the title in the bag. Maybe Leicester to drop despite their recent heroics. New blood, Watford Bournemouth, and, erm, coin, straws, lots… Norwich in the play-offs. Derby to miss out yet again.

5) Gotta be the Ashes. Be afraid, be very afraid. (27/04 09:55)

Kev79: Liverpool – so bad Steve moaned at them twice! (27/04 05:59)

Stevemanics: Fifth place for scoring one point :-) An exact score and three correctly predicted draws. Bloody Liverpool, Palace and Liverpool though! (27/04 00:14)
