Eleven fixtures from the tough to predict Championship, so it was no surprise they produced a mixed bag of results. As it turned out the easy way to success would have been to go 1-0 all games, with that result producing another four this week, and making it 35 for the season now. That is an incredible 13 more than the next best result, with 0-0, 0-1 and 1-1 all having 22. Going 1-0 all games would have got you 15 points, but unitedwhites almost managed that in a more conventional way. He had three 3 pointers, the wins for Derby, Millwall and Birmingham, and four outcomes, to make him the weeks top scorer with a brilliant 13 points. Another member to have three 3 pointers was sevebalo, the wins for Derby, Millwall and Watford, to give him an excellent 10 points. There were eight members who got two 3 pointers, with the best performance from Sector4 and RSCOSWORTH, who both had the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, and with four outcomes they got an excellent 10 points.
In the Premier The struggle for supremacy in this division continued, and it was the excellent week from sevebalo that sent him back to the top again, after three weeks away. Juist 2 points further back are basher2010 and mfb_cufc, who both had the Millwall 1-0 spot-on. With just 36 games left to the season, the title could be going to the final game before it is decided. Up a place into fourth after his excellent week is Sector4, Up three places, and into the top half for the first time this season, is RSCOSWORTH, after his excellent week. Two 3 pointers for Daniel, the 1-0 wins for Millwall and Watford, helped to ease him away from the relegation zone. At the bottom two 3 pointers for Tropical_Us, the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, will give him hope of still escaping, as he reduces the gap to safety by 4 points.
In Division One There has been very little change in this league for a number of weeks now, and this week there was no change at all from last week. This means leader concordman takes another step to promotion by having the Millwall 1-0 spot-on. He still has a 15 point cushion back to third place ghughes11, but the brilliant week from unitedwhites has really enhanced his automatic promotion prospects, and cut his lead to 9 points. Fourth placed blueeagle is looking good for a play-off spot, but suddenly has a lot to do to make the automatics. The top six has had the same members for ten weeks running, and it shows little sign of changing, as BFG had two 3 pointers, the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1, and durham_exile also got two spot-ons, the wins for Derby and Millwall, as both improved their play-off hopes. Two 3 pointers also for Lewis_1, the Forest 1-0 to go with his good QPR 3-0 pick, to just about keep him in contention for the play-offs. The other member to get two 3 pointers this week was oxfcolu, who was another to have the Millwall 1-0 and the Barnsley 1-1. An unfortunate missed week for gsy163 has put him the wooden spoon mix as Pinault_Noir and medicine_man continue to pick up useful points.
