SussexWelsh | 4962 comments A high scoring week (for the most part) sees Lez continuing her good run with a top score of 18. Brilliant.
Close on her heels were David & MC on 17. Very good punting.
A small consolation for SRJ who accumulated 16 hard earned points. Nice one.

As a result, Lez sweeps to the top of the table but it's now very tight all the way down to 7th position.

Scores:

Lez 18
David & MC 17
SRJ 16
Mooro 15
Anita 14
tech, Val & RedJohn 13
Duke 11
SjB & Gordon 10 (averaged)
Sussex 9
Philip & TheFoe 5
Wharf 4
Deano 3

Standings:

Lez 63
RedJohn 61
tech & David 60
Philip 59
SRJ 57
Duke 55
Mooro & MC 52
Anita 49
Sussex 47

What device/browser are you using, MC? You should have edit and delete buttons on your own posts.

Isn't that an old Billy Connolly line? "I always thought that team was called Partick Thistle nil."


message 29: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6451 comments it is, yes. and after today, the only team in the league without a win this season.

We used to have a tennis player named Defeated Ann Minter.


message 31: by TheFoe (new)

TheFoe | 2001 comments Went to Wembley on Saturday with my son and brother in law to watch my first ever Spurs match. The burger stand outside was ultra expensive, £7 for a burger £3 for chips. I thought they were taking the mick tbh. The match first half was pretty lame, Bournemouth made it very hard for our midfield to penetrate it. The second half was much more enjoyable, a goal, a disallowed goal, fancy footwork and nearly a second goal, I loved it!

Good news also, Danny Rose is on the bench for the Real Madrid match on Tuesday. How long he remains a Spurs player remains to be seen though. Ah well onwards and upwards, COYS!!
