Round 07: Review

Not only did Round 07 see the climax of February’s hotly contested Player-of-the-Month, it also produced a new high score in the One Round Wonder table, if not a new leader. Both of these things deserved a headline of their own, so you can read more further down.

The race at the top of the overall table became even closer after Round 07, with four players now tied in second place just one point behind the leader, Gareth Bridges (61 pts). The four players breathing down Gareth’s neck are Martin Gayton, Shaun Allen, Scott Symonds and Simon Allen (all on 61). Tucked in just behind them are Darren Bellamy (59) and Dave Mason (57) in sixth and seventh respectively.

Round 08: Preview

In the flurry of match activity in the last few days, don’t forget your predictions for Round 08 this weekend. Saturday has a huge seven matches, starting with the North London derby (Tottenham v Arsenal) at lunchtime. There are five three o’clock kick-offs before the day finishes when Newcastle travel down to West Ham at teatime.

Sunday’s three matches kick-off with Watford v Leicester at midday , followed by another derby (Fulham v Chelsea) at 2:05pm before the Round finishes with yet another derby, this time the Merseyside one at 4:15pm.

Player of the Month: Winner(s)

For the first time since January last year, the Player-of-the-Month prize will be shared. Gareth Bridges and Shaun Allen both scored 41 points from 39 matches – that’s an average of 1.05 points per prediction.

Gareth and Shaun will receive £9.79 each as their reward. It’s Shaun’s first prize win of any kind since his Player of the Month in February 2016 and Gareth’s first since Player-of-the-Month in March 2017. Well done fellas.

One Round Wonder: Hayman (again!)

While most eyes were on the scrap for February’s Player-of-the-Month, Martin Hayman was busy beating his own One Round Wonder target by amassing a decent 15 points in Round 07. Martin now has the top two scores of this Game.

Updates: Tardiness

Updates during Round 06 were a bit slower than you might have previously experienced. We’ve been busy packing a five bedroom house which makes updating a little trickier than normal! We’ll be moving to a different five bedroom house during Round 08, so you might see inconsistent updates during the coming weekend as well. Hopefully normal service will be resumed post-move.

Twenty Point Jackpot: Going Up

The Jackpot will be £28 for Round 08 and will continue to grow at the rate of £1 per Round until somebody achieves the magical 20 points. Should there be no winner in Game 02, then the prize will be rolled-over into next season and would start at £38.
