    It was a salamander, Piglet, not Salander. Stockholm looks nice though.

    This week we all forecast 49% homes, and there were 58% when the final whistles blew. We went for 29% aways and there were three - 25%. We also went for too many draws, 22% and there were 17%. No idea what it all means but it might be useful to someone.

    Average score was 6.1 with Alf and Piglet top-scoring with 9. Me (again) and Southblue hardly bothered the scorer with paltry 3s. Time for a change of tack maybe. Pete’s off the bottom and Piglet’s extending his lead at the top. Biggest risers this week were Alf and Acido, each up 3. I dropped the most, down 4 spots to 13th.

    Not easy, is it?

    1 Piglet......................(9) 75
    2 Howoldboy...............(4) 68
    3 AussieBranch............(7) 65
    4= Psaw.....................(5) 59
    4= Altobelli.................(8) 59
    6 Mullen.....................(6) 58
    7= Chalky...................(4) 55
    7= Cayambe...............(7) 55
    9 Gaz.........................(8) 54
    10 Acido.....................(8) 53
    11= NZBlue................(6) 52
    11= Alf.......................(9) 52
    13= Griff.....................(3) 50
    13= Crusha.................(4) 50
    15 Nobbyblue..............(6) 49
    16 Pete.......................(7) 41
    17 Southblue...............(3) 40

    10 weeks in Griff and so far this season 45% of the games you have selected have been homes, 28% draws and 27% aways.

    Anyone going for 12 homes each week (hgatenasty style) would have 54 points (enough to be mid-table) from results alone without any additional points from correct scores.

    If, by the end of the season you can get it to 33.3% homes, 33.3% draws and 33.3% aways that would be perfect!

    Imagine that Piglet; you think you’ve escaped the volcano, made it to Herculaneum, then comes the pyroclastic flow. Anyway, the correct answers was Silloth, where Pyroclastic Flo touts her trade nightly.

    Fylde v Sutton went the same way as the Barrow game, postponed because of boneheaded planning by the away Club. I’ll award the points when it’s played. Chalky and NZBlue failed to show and drop down the table as a result - three positions in NZBlue’s case. They got 3 points, matching this week’s lowest score, posted by Altobelli, Gaz and Crusha.

    Average Score was 5.7 helped by Piglet’s top total (again) of 10, and 9s from Mullen and Nobby. Well done Nobby - up a huge 7 places to 8th this week. Piglet’s form means that he’s pulling away at the top with a lead of 9 over Howoldboy. That’s two weeks’ scoring for some of us.

    All is not yet lost. Time to change tactics? We’r just over a quarter way though the competition so maybe now’s the time for a review and a new strategy. Good luck.



    1 Piglet....................(10) 85
    2 Howoldboy...............(8) 76
    3 AussieBranch............(6) 71
    4 Mullen.....................(9) 67
    5 Psaw.......................(5) 64
    6 Altobelli...................(3) 62
    7 Cayambe.................(6) 61
    8= Nobbyblue.............(9) 58
    8= Chalky.............(Dne3) 58
    8= Acido....................(5) 58
    11= Gaz.....................(3) 57
    11= Alf.......................(5) 57
    13 Griff.......................(6) 56
    14 NZBlue.............(Dne3) 55

    The Star Telecom offices on the outskirts of Moscow wasn’t what I expected of you this week Piglet, nor was it the correct answer. The correct answer, and you’ll be kicking yourself, was Starman by David Bowie.

    We had a mixed week with an average of only 4.9. Crusha did best with 9 and moves up a respectable five positions to 10th. Altobelli and Gaz scraped two apiece and are sliding as a consequence, though not as badly as Acido who dropped four spots this week

    Piglet now has a lead of 10 which is two weeks’ scoring for most of us so well done to him. That’s over 7 points each week so he must be doing something that rest of us are missing. Answers on a postcard etc.........

    1 Piglet......................(5) 90
    2 Howoldboy...............(4) 80
    3 AussieBranch...........(7) 78
    4 Mullen.....................(5) 72
    5 Psaw.......................(5) 69

    12= Griff.....................(5) 61
    12= Acido....................(3) 61
    14= NZBlue.................(4) 59
    14= Gaz......................(2) 59
    16 Southblue...............(6) 50

    Mount Chimborazo, Piglet, isn’t a peak that I’ve stood on personally, in fact Binsey is more my thing. You’ll kick yourself because the correct answer was Victoria Island. You probably didn’t give it surficiant thought.

    Three games postponed due to warthogs on the pitch and, as usual, I’ll award the points as these games are played. Could take a while though.

    Average score was 4.6 and Piglet and Cayambe top-scored with 8. Down the other end there were four participants on a progress-stopping 2; Chalky, Acido, Gaz and Pete. Chalky drops four positions to twelfth as a result; I was the biggest climber, up three to ninth.

    Piglet’s lead has now stretched to 13 points - one per week - and that’s a lot at this time of the season. He has exactly twice as many points at Pete at the bottom so the Gods must be smiling on him. Still, what do Gods know; there a long way to go yet.

    1 Piglet......................(8) 98
    2 AussieBranch...........(7) 85
    3 Howoldboy...............(4) 84
    4 Mullen.....................(5) 77

    Sorry this is late, I’ve been on the grandfather duties doon sooth and was driving all day yesterday.

    Piglet, of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, you walks into mine. Oh, I forgot, you aren’t reading this. Still, here’s looking at you kid.

    Anyway, where were we. Oh yes, the competition. A good range of scores this week from 1 to 11 and a number of ups and downs. Average was 4.8 but Gaz managed an impressive 11 and rises EIGHT places from 15th to 8th. He even managed to forecast the 2-3 at Mansfield which is impressive, so well done.

    At the other end of the spectrum was Nobby with a mere 1. That was enough to drop him from 8th to 13th where he finds himself in good company. Chalky picked a poor week to copy Piglet’s predictions as they both scored a below-average 4. Chalky drops a place while Piglet sails on at the top with no-one challenging him.

    Is the season over already? Will Chalky learn the error of his ways? Can the onrushing NZBlue finally catch up with AussieBranch? Tune in for next week’s exciting* instalment!

    1 Piglet....................(4) 102
    2 AussieBranch...........(4) 89
    3 Howoldboy...............(3) 87
    4 Cayambe.................(8) 83
    5= Psaw....................(5) 79
    5= Mullen..................(2) 79
    7= Gaz....................(11) 72
    7= Altobelli................(3) 72
    9= NZBlue.................(6) 71
    9= Crusha.................(5) 71
    9= Acido...................(8) 71
    12 Alf.......................(4) 70
    13= Nobbyblue..........(1) 69
    13= Griff...................(2) 69
    13= Chalky................(4) 69
    16 Southblue.............(7) 60

    Ive scored 5 now for several weeks. Its reasonably easy to predict 5 results from twelve, what isn't easy is getting the right score. Piglet wont win, someone in the top five will, like a horse race. Ive got my poker antennae on it... I know who will win,,,,, and who wont. Chalky, you've got zero chance, or come to that neither have you Griff.

    In our little triumvirate, Cambridge top Carlisle and county in the league, and I top you ywo in this. The Jackson 4.

    Thanks Griff.

    Not that it matters too much but I think this week EOB should read (1) 31.
