Deluge of points for Flookyflood
It’s been a crazy, long, busy, weird weekend, and it’s late, so this will be a relatively short update with some housekeeping to go with the usual review of the weekend.
First up, congratulations to Flookyflood who dominated the scoring this week, winning with 64 points, a whopping 18 ahead of JB in second place. Flookyflood pretty much nailed it this weekend, hitting eight correct result and two scores. The results included 10s on Man City and Chelsea, plus 5s on Southampton’s bonkers 8-0 win and Liverpool’s last minute lunacy at QPR. Such was Flooky’s domination, he could even afford to waste a 5 point bet on Arsenal to win. A richly deserved £10 to spend at Amazon is winging its way to our worthy Punter of the Week.
In the League, Flookyflood’s win takes him 2 places up to the very top, knocking Jono from the summit and Ian from second place. In Matchplay, it’s as you were with Average Chris and Husseller both sitting pretty with six wins out of six. Ridiculously, I have had three draws from my six games! What are the chances?
There was quite a cull in Sudden Death with several punters backing Norwich and Arsenal. Eight punters remain to wade into another scrap next weekend.
Speaking of Sudden Death, we should have a couple of additions to tPs by the end of next weekend. The stats pages have been conspicuous by their absence this season, but they’re being tarted up and will be ready soon. Also in the pipeline is a Sudden Death widget which will mean you’ll be able to pick your team from the homepage. Hopefully you’ll already have noticed there is a whole cluster of awesomeness right below this text – a snippet from the league table, the top scores from the latest week, the prediction form, and a window into the Forum. There’s plenty for you to see and do if you scroll down, so get that mouse wheel turning!

Rob: Forget setting up an RSS feed on the forum, I need a like button for those last two posts! (20/10 09:09)
kp: Oh,squeaky bum time then! (19/10 22:01)
Kev79: Keith, at 0-1 I had an exceedingly messy nappy to change. I said to Jessica “if you stop wriggling I should get you changed and be back in front of the TV just in time for QPR’s inevitable last minute equaliser”. Katie said “there’s 5 minutes left plus injury time”. And I replied “so I’ve got 8 minutes to change the nappy then”. It took me 9 minutes. My first sight of the TV was Coutinho wheeling away in celebration. Ce Sera……. (19/10 19:12)
kp: Kev – following your correct 2-3 prediction of QPR v Liverpool, what’s your forecast for when you’ll stop grinning about the last 10 minutes of the game? (19/10 18:59)
Kev79: 1) Which is your favourite Muppet, and why?
We owned the Muppets album on record growing up, and I recall a song about Kermit’s nephew being stuck down a well?! It was enough to make him my favourite, not that I watched it much. If I watched it now as an adult I’m sure I would prefer the misery of Waldorf and Statler.
2) I’m predicting upsets this weekend, without giving away your predictions, what’s your tip for the weekend?
I’m in a league where we predict using bookies odds. Sunderland drawing at Southampton was my long-shot bet of the weekend. Shows what I know…..
3) Android, iOS or Windows Mobile?
iPhone. When I first got one it had the best apps. Now I’m habitually ‘stuck’ with it. That said, although I’ve not used a Windows phone I am not a fan of my wife’s Samsung, and my work Blackberry is horrible.
4) Apparently we’re all getting ripped off in this country when it comes to watching football! Like that’s a revelation! Which club in which foreign country would you support if you were close enough?
Once they are fully formed, New York FC – my favourite city, playing at the home stadium of my favourite sports team, run as the sister club of my former employers. Perfect.
5) What’s the weirdest place name in the UK you’ve come across?
Growing up we used to go to Drusilas Zoo, which is located next to Upper and Lower Dicker. There was also a nice pub in a nearby village called Hooe. Cue much hilarity with idiots: “Where are we going?”. “Hooe”. “Not who, where?”
and bonus 6th question as it was seemingly glazed over when I mentioned it before, who else would like to be notified by email when new posts appear on the forum?
No thanks. I tend to have a tPs window open in my home PC and my phone, so check a few times a week anyway. (19/10 18:18)
