NBS Takes The Title With Style!
It’s been a foregone conclusion for a little while now, but not content with cruising to his League Champion title, NBS showed his class by saving a week-winning performance for the final weekend of the season. His 43 point total came from an excellent six correct results and three scores, and, coincidentally, from at total stake of 43 points. Nice! Like most punters he chucked 10 on The Arsenal to beat The Villa and also nailed his 5 point bet on Saints to defeat Palace. He managed to avoid what many of us did – putting 10 points on the abandoned game at Old Trafford. We all got the points staked on this game back, but of course with no profit.
So, when the final action of the day was done, this excellent Punter of the Week performance pushed him to a 116 point victory in the League over Wainwright in second place.
Once again, our top four finishers took away massive cash prizes for their efforts. In addition to the tenner for his week win, NBS wins £50 for finishing top of the league. Wainwright gets £35 for second place, Jono finished third and takes £25, and Flookyflood held on to fourth place and takes £15. Many congratulations to you all!
And thus endeth another cracking season at tPs. We hope you’ve enjoyed taking part as much as we have. We say it each year, but we are always so massively grateful for your participation – tPs would obviously be nothing at all without you all. You’re the best!
We will definitely be back next season, and we hope you’ll join us once again. We’ve got some big plans for next year, and, if time permits, and nice fresh modern new look. Feel free to keep in touch in the forum, especially with the Euros brightening up the summer. Also, if you have any ideas or feedback for tPs, we’d love to hear it.
Have a superb summer – see you in August!

pubcarparkninja: Chaps – I am gonna need some help.
I am going to be starting to form my collection of Euro 2016 beers soon, I have ideas on the majority but I am missing these nations, any beers you can recommend from said countries?
If you can suggest a good UK supermarket / wine shop that sells it, even better. (26/05 17:13)
Rob: Hello all! Thanks for the Five, PCPN.
1) Barney, sorry, you’d have lost your prediction – the final score was 1-1. Retrospective points lost, my friend! I made a tidy tenner laying United but lost half of that on a punt that Dwight Gayle would score. Wanted Palace to win, obvs, but quite enjoyed the match from a defensive perspective. A lot of people were complaining that it was boring, but the teams were well matched and put their all into it, so I found it quite compelling.
2) B, excited. Love a summer football tournament. Reasonably optimistic that England could put on a decent performance. Quite an exciting young side, although it remains to be seen which of the 26 will be shitcanned.
3) Cricket, 100%. Not got any tickets for anything this summer so I might have to remedy that if I can.
4) I am more inclined to switch from ale to lager when it’s hot and sunny, but I’m not fussy. Unless it’s cider, which doth ming.
5) Stay. Summed up perfectly earlier by PCPN with his “gut reaction of doing the exact opposite of political tools Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage”. (24/05 13:51)
Barnes: 1) I would have had the FA cup down as 1-2 to United. Honest! Retrospective points?
Punter of the week? Liar of the decade?
2) B, excited. Just seen the ident / trailer for the BBC coverage at half time during the FA cup. Don’t they always do a good job. Although Rio Ferdinand does look like a tool in French Regency attire.
3) Deffo Cricket. I could (and have) spend days watching it. There is nothing quite like the ebb and flow of a test match. Although admittedly the 1st test Vs Sri Lanka was practically all ebb, and precious little flow. I am glad that I have tickets for Lords with PCPN and others for day 2, that’s all that I can say.
4) Ooooh, dry white wine. To kind of you to offer.
5) ‘Stay with me’ © Shakespeare’s Sister circa early 90’s (?) (23/05 16:25)
Stevemanics: 50p for 5? That’s a bit more like it. Perhaps they sold too badly after the price shot up many years ago.
I keep a close eye on the cricket but rarely bother watching the highlights in the evening when I already know what has happened during the day. Whereas I religiously watch MOTD despite doing the same with the football. (21/05 14:37)
pubcarparkninja: 1) Unfortunately I do think Man Utd will do it, we’ll be watching the final in Oxford with team FGFC of which one member is a Man Utd fan, after some barracking from Wednesday I am all pro Palace. Man Utd 2, Palace 1 would have been my selection on the sheet, 2 points on the score, 7 on the result.
2) I am b. excited, I love summer football, something special about it. I have foolishly made a start on the Euro 2016 sticker album. I am 40 and have no children. Packets are 50p for 5 but I’m already massing a swap pile. Anyone wanna trade?
3) I pretty much switch to cricket to follow the England test series, and one dayers, Twenty20 etc and a bit of Wimbledon too. Of course our football love will be sated by Euro 2016 this summer.
4) I am notoriously easily pleased as I can happily drink lager, cider, ales, Guinness, red and white wine. Summer does lend itself to cider more, but with the prevalence of new wave, cool, hipster, craft pale ales and IPAs which are served chilled, I’m more than happy with a nice chilled ghost ship, mosaic, Spitfire Gold, Tribute, ease up IPA or hophead ales.
5) Got our voting cards through the post yesterday hence the prompt. I’m gonna be a stayer, I almost certainly need to do some more reading about the pros and cons, but it’s pretty persuasive that the majority of all our major parties believe in staying. Currently I’m basing my opinion on my gut reaction of doing the exact opposite of political tools Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage. Plus I love hearing Eddie Izzard wax lyrical about Europe and feel compelled to follow his lead. (21/05 10:39)
