Week 6 results
ARSENAL 1 NORWICH CITY 0
Arsenal lifted the pressure on manager Mikel Arteta as they scored thier first goal, and secured their first points of the Premier League season. 5 got this spot-on, and a further 20 had the outcome.
BRISTOL CITY 0 PRESTON NORTH END 0
City extend their wait for a home win in the Championship this season after this bore draw. Nobody had this spot-on, but 7 did get the outcome. The other 20 predicted a win for City with 10 going for a 1-0 in what was the weeks most predicted score.
READING 3 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 3
Rangers get a 91st minute equaliser to maintain their unbeaten start to the Championship season. Again nobody got this spot-on, though 4 did have the outcome.
IPSWICH TOWN 2 BOLTON WANDERERS 5
Poor old Ipswich are still looking for their first league win after this thrashing. No 3 pointer for anybody here, but 7 did get the outcome.
MORECAMBE 3 AFC WIMBLEDON 4
Wimbledon get a 94th minute winner in this topsy-turvy encounter. A final game this week with no 3 pointer, though 10 did have the outcome.
CRAWLEY TOWN 2 CARLISLE UNITED 1
Nick Tsaroulla's last-minute goal earned Crawley their first win in four league games, and they finally beat Carlisle after failing in their previous 15 encounters. That late goal was good news for the 4 who had this spot-on, and another 8 got the outcome.
SALFORD CITY 1 BRADFORD CITY 0
Salford were another team to get a last minute winner this week. That was good news for the 3 who got this spot-on, and for the 8 who had the outcome.
What a crazy week this was with three games producing 20 goals between them, and only 5 goals from the other four games. So crazy that even Arsenal won a game. It looked for a while their victory was going to be the only game to have a 3 pointer, but the late winners for Crawley and Salford gave us a respectable 12 in total in the end. Two members had two 3 pointers, they were MrHappy2 and Tropical_Us, who both made a good decision to go 1-0 all games. That also got them one outcome, so they share the honour of being the weeks top scorer with a decent 7 points each. Best of the members to get one 3 pointer was blueeagle, who had the Crawley 2-1 and three outcomes to give him a solid 6 points.
Happy Midwek League Cup A final reminder that the next round of games start next Tuesday with a 19.45 deadline. All details on the separate Happy Midweek League Cup thread.
In the Premier A useful four outcomes for RSCOSWORTH extends his lead to a handy 7 points. Back on track with three outcomes keeps unitedwhites in second. Having the Arsenal 1-0 spot-on moved sevebalo a bit closer to the top two. A useful four outcomes also for TheFatGooner moves him up a place into the final Super Cup spot. Another week of struggle for mfb_cufc means he drops out of the top four. In another tough week for 3 poibters in this division, the only other members to get one were Daniel, who had the Salford 1-0, and moves up a place to sixth, and Sector4, who got the Crawley 2-1. At the bottom, even though he is still looking for a first 3 pointer this season, an impressive 16 outcomes has taken ghughes11 out of the relegation zone for the first time since Week 1. He is replaced by noah4x4, who is struggling to produce the form that saw him win the league twice in the last three seasons. Also looking for that elusive first 3 pointer is concordman and also Blue4U2, who had an unfortunate miissed week.
In Division One It is the weeks two top scorers who have moved into the automatic places, with MrHappy2 moving up a couple of places to go top, and Tropical_Us up four places into second. Just two outcomes for medicine_man means he drops to third. Despite getting the Arsenal 1-0 spot-on, gerry_us remains fourth, but close enough to keep that £100 in sight. Last weeks leader Lewis_1 had to settle for the one outcome, and drops four places. Up another couple of places into the final play-off spot is blueeagle, as he continues a rise that has taken him up eight places in three weeks. Just losing out on a play-off place, after being there for two weeks, is Pinault_Noir. Though he still got a useful four outcomes, and only lost out on the most 3 pointer rule. Still very much in the play-off mix are burnsieespana and bwildered, after they both had the Crawley 2-1 spot-on. A useful four outcomes for wessex_exile, as he comes back to some sort of form, but with 2's and 3's for all other members, it very much as you were, but at such an early stage in the season, a top six place is still very much a possibility for everyone.
