Round 08 2017/2018 – Premier League “Puzzle Week”

This past week I completed the 3000 piece Football History puzzle and I thought it would be interesting to share some of the details over the course of the next few posts.  This is basically an admission that coming up with ideas to write about is quite hard and having pretty pictures is a cop-out. …

Round 07 2017/18 – Results “Black Jack”

This was a high scoring week (for some of us). Things were looking close on Saturday but a crazy set of Sunday results moved BE to the top of the pack. There was a fairly big score this week….let’s see if you can guess what it was without looking. Maybe that wasn’t enough of a …

Round 06 2017/18 – Results “Gareth Barry…didn’t win…nor did LJ”

Here are this weeks results in a high scoring week.  Pretty straightforward post – no post game analysis this week.   Poor LJ…. bottom of the pack again.   Here are the leaders overall.  I will figure out how to adjust AM’s scores as he didn’t pick week 1.  He really only cares about his …

September 21st 2017 – 1 Year

Last year I was going to do a post and I just never got to it.  I’ve lost what I had written but it’s the one year anniversary of the passing of Jack Rawlings, or as he was known to JE and me, Grandad. To others he was Dad (or sometimes just “silly bugger”). He …

As a curiousity, I thought I would share the table of our average picks.  This provides some insight into who we collectively under and overrate.  I’m just glad to see that I’m not the only one who thought Crystal Palace would be better. I don’t know how often I will post this but it’s available …
