How the hell do you even begin to explain last week? Regardless, EVERYONE scored points with their predictions, with @aboynamedgoo @ynot and @boxtoboxelder picking up points from 4 of the 5 matches. Five people picked up treble-points: three on 1-point wagers, and two of you turned 4 points into 12.
Goals flew in all over the place, but it’s Mother who continues to mug us all off as she’s now the only person to go 4/4 with her goalscorer picks (Zaha, Wood, Bowen, Watkins). Salah, Son, and Fernandes earned 15 points for Brainfreeze, Midnightpunk and Gonad respectively, while Miedema was picked by three of you. 11 of us losing points here, guttingly including Octobadger who had scored 5 for the week to lift himself off zero.
Only player to to score negatively this week was @Coolerthantv with Messi undoing all his hard work. @Gonad top-scored with 25, having started the week on -3 to lift himself from 24th to 14. Discobot’s random picks have them in joint 10th. Parsefone spat his dummy out, but as per the rules, scores 3 points for a missed week (the lowest wagers score).
Top 4 remain the same but Mum increases the gap from 48 to 50 points, and Zorb is now level with Ynot in joint third. New players will start on 7 points, and it’s time for an International Non-Break! Soon as something the fixtures remotely interesting, I’ll put the Top 16 (excluding myself and Discobot) into a Knockout Cup competition.
