A rather belated post this week due to the impending vacation.
The September Manager of the Month went right down to the wire, with Ken finally making it over the line ahead of Jord thanks to his nine-point haul on the day and, more importantly, his Golden Goal counting ahead of results, both having predicted the same amount of correct scores. Jay couldn’t hold onto the lead he had going into the final week and picked up a measly three points to finish a point behind them both on 20 points for the month.
Les finished two points further back on 18, a point ahead of Pat and Micky D, as we alluded to last week, will want to forget September ever happened, picking up only 11 points in total for September.
The league is a different story altogether from last year. There was nothing in it all season long, but Ken’s consecutive manager of the month awards have had an obvious bearing on the league table proper. He’s way out in front on 31 points from Pat, Jord and Jay, all tied for joint second on 24 points for the season. Les is just two points back on 22 and Micky D is in the wooden spoon position, just a further two points adrift on 20.
So, the at-a-glance results for week 7 and the league standings are thus:
This week, Round 8, sees a mixture of fixtures from the Premiership and Championship before they close their doors in Round 9 for the Internationals. This week, being the first Saturday in the month, is also Round 2 of the Sweet F.A. Cup qualifying Round Robin. Going head to head this Saturday we have
1. Jase vs Jord,
2. Les vs Ken, and
3. Pat vs Micky D
As we’ll be in mid-air come 5 o’clock Saturday, we won’t know the results until we’ve got our gobs around a couple of cervezas on Lanzarote so we’ll check back with you w/c 22nd October.
