Darrell Super6 Week 34 Results & Week 35 Fixtures

It’s a new day of a new (tax) year and the capacity to earn £10k without paying a jot to the taxman is upon us.

In real terms, that’s £200/week you can earn without parting with a penny in deductions, other than N.I. contributions.

Yes, I think we’ll have some of that.  Millionaires have had a tax-cut, so what?  Yes, it sucks, but does it directly affect me?  Erm, no.

IDS’s Welfare Reform was going ahead, like it or not; now that doesn’t just stink, it’s positively pungent.

But Labour fighting that particular front with the £1ook tax cut on each £1m is somewhat irrelevant and misguided for those on lower-income.

Rather than try to stir up feeling, why don’t The Reds tell us what they’re going to do rather than moan about what the Tories have done?

Jeez, if everyone got depressed about Tory policy, I’d be investing in shares in The Samaritans up to the hilt. #justsayin’

Week 35 Super 6 Fixtures

Anyway – off me political soapbox and into the terraces with a round-up of this week’s Super6 results and a sneak peek at the Week 35 Super 6 fixtures.

After a superb March, Les has really took the challenge to Ken at the top of the league, who had his worth month by far.  A two-horse race?  Methinkso.

Jase looks to have settled for third and Pat for fourth, with an intriguing battle between Micky D & Jord for the wooden spoon.

This weekend coming is the last of the phase 2 round robin, whereafter we’ll have our finalists for the Sweet FA Cup, first weekend May.  Keep you posted.

Next week’s fixtures and DarrellSuper6 entry form across the page.

Yet again, we see West Brom, Aston Villa and Wolves all featuring in the same week.  Lots of predicting with heart instead of minds, then.

Yep – I think Jeff and the boys’ jackpot will be safe, certainly from this little nook in The Black Country.

Week 35 Super 6 Form Guide

Wolves head off to Bolton in a battle of The Wanderers; that’s always a scrappy affair, always close and almost always sees the points stay in Lancashire.

However, Wolves have picked up 13 points from the last 18 and have suddenly remembered where the net is in emphatic style (fixture 4).

West Brom – who already seem to have one arm in the sleeve of their jacket for end-of-season do – face Arsenal at The Hawthorns.  Arsenal do have something to play for, WBA really don’t (fixture 3).

And Villa have the unenviable task of trying to bring something back from The Britannia, where Stoke have looked strong all season, as both teams look to avoid the drop into The Championship (fixture 2).

We stay in the Midlands, albeit the east, with a trip across to Nottingham as Forest look to cement their play-off place against a Blackpool side who are only three points off the drop zone (fixture 5).

The non-Midlands games feature Norwich at home to Swansea, the home side by no means safe four points off the relegation zone.  The Swans look to be safe as they sit mid-table, just below The Baggies (fixture 1).

And fixture 6 is a real six-point fixture as Sheffield Wednesday take on Blackburn at Hillsborough.  As it stands, both are on 47 points and outside the drop zone on goal difference only.

The Championship table is a volatile melting pot

Should Huddersfield pick up a point tonight at the Reebok or Posh win at Middlesboro, Sheffield are in the bottom three.

If both of those results transpire this evening, Sheffield will be second-bottom and Blackburn – on a shocking run of form – will be outside the relegation places by the slenderest of goal differences, which could well be erased at Hillsborough on Saturday.

So, there’s your form guide to Week 35 of the Super 6.  Best of luck and see you next week when Micky D, Ken and Pat will be behind WBA and Les and Jord will no doubt behoove as the Villains they are.

I’ll be the loner up the corner in the gold and black, praying for another three points to put a little daylight between Wolves and League One and the thought of successive relegations.  Not again, surely…

DarrellSuper6 Week 33 Predictions

Britain’s “White Weekend”, as it’s being dubbed, has had an effect on the Super 6 fixtures, this week.
Typical, the snow’s struck when all the fixtures are from League 1 – if they’d been from The Premier, the grounds may well have survived this unseasonal drop of white stuff.

So, to get on with it, here are our predictions for Week 33:

For those unfamiliar with League 1, here’s the table as it stands:

League 1 - 19th March 2013

League 1 – 19th March 2013 c/o SKY Sports

There’s a link on the Get Thet, Go!! home page to the Super 6 site if you’d like to have a pop yourself.  Join us later for the results.

Alternatively, join/follow me during the week on Google+: +Jason Darrell

Please note, due to there only being four fixtures, the jackpot has been reduced to £5,000; here’s what SKY has to say about it:

Weather hits Super 6 (Week 33)

Please note that following the postponements of Colchester v MK Dons and Shrewsbury v Oldham, this week’s jackpot is reduced to £5,000, with a guaranteed £5,000 for the person who scores the most points.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply enter your predictions before 3pm today.

DarrellSuper6 Week 31 Predictions

Here we go, then , with this week’s Super 6 predictions for the DarrellSuper6 League:

 

 

What on earth has happened at the bookies this week?

We’ve been used to seeing some extremely low odds over the last few weeks, as low as 50/1-ish for the accumulators for the Super 6 matches.

This week, it’s mental!

For the sets of predictions above, the odds are as follows:

  • Jay: 715/1
  • Les: 292/1
  • Jord: 463/1
  • Ken: 574/1
  • Pat: 902/1
  • Micky D: 599/1

Those are some astounding figures for 6 matches.  It’s a sign that our three teams are playing today, though.

Villa, Albion and Wolves on the fixture list may mean there’s a little more predicting with our heart rather than our heads than usual.

I wonder what combinations are delivering low odds, this week?  Certainly none that we’ve picked.

We’ll be back a little later with a round-up of the results and next week’s fixtures – hopefully devoid of any matches that trigger emotional betting.

We’ll try to fit in a PDC Darts round-up and bring you the latest from the WGC Cadillac in the US where Justin Rose looks like he might struggle to defend his title after shooting his first over-par round of the season, yesterday. Me and my big mouth, eh?

However, as we’ve had to extract all of our posts from FeckTV.com whilst the site prepares for a makeover, there’s a bot of work to do over on The Flying Feck to categorise the 100+ posts I’m babysitting in the interim.

Okay – fingers crossed – rollover jackpot today of £125,000 for all 6 and £6,000 for the most right in the event that no one wins the big one.

Have a great afternoon – see you back here later with the scores on the doors, Miss Ford.

 

 

Darrellsuper6 predictions and results week 30

Well, here we are.  March.

Where has this footie season gone?  Certainly Wolves and Villa fans know the answer: down the pan.

Baggies fans, on the other hand, will wonder what all the fuss is about, knocking on the doors of Europe for the first time in thirty years[1], as they are [citation needed1 – that’s a guess].

Manchester United will wonder how they squandered the title last year, given how they’re “doing a Celtic” on the English Premier League this season.

And our local teams in the lower divisions, Walsall and Kidderminster, are showing the big boys how it’s done.  Both had awful starts to the season, but are both genuine contenders for promotion as the season enters its final third.

Perhaps they could rub some of their magic onto the gates of the Molineux or Villa Park, or even St Andrews, as the Blues aren’t out of the woods, yet, either.

Anyhoo, I digress.

How did we get on this week with our Super6 predictions?

The DarrellSuper6 predictions and results for week 30 is what we’re here for.  First, the tweets of the predictions, as they happened:

 

 

At 2:00pm, GMT, I was convinced that one of us was going to hit the jackpot, today.

No, I don’t mean walk up to Adey Lewis and smack him in the gob, although how someone hasn’t already is beyond me.

I mean I thought they looked good enough a spread to get us amongst the prizes.  But you can’t rely on the ‘funny old game’ for anything, can yer?

This, in the end, is how Week 30 panned out:

(alternatively, open Week 30 results in new window)

I only hope that we do better with week 31, although I doubt it as all six of us follow either West Brom, Villa or Wolves.

Full Week 31 fixtures uploaded on the submission form page.

See you next week; happy punting!

DarrellSuper6 Round-up Week 29

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve entertained the Gillette Soccer Saturday Super6 here on Get Thet, Go!.

Rest assured, we’ve been banging on our entries, Micky D from his sick-bed in New Cross Hospital and the rest of us last-minute rushes.  Oh, to be organised!?!?!

Whatever we do, however, nothing seems to be able to stop Ken running away with the league this year.  And what a turn-around in fortunes.

Apart from a couple of Manager of the Month awards, Ken’s only other achievement in the 2011-12 season was to pick up the wooden spoon.

Not only is the old fella running away with the DarrellSuper6 League, he’s also in the top 1% of the Gillette Soccer Saturday Super 6 League, just 47 points off top spot.

That’s not an insurmountable challenge for Ken, with so many weeks left this season by any stretch of the imagination.

Once again, Ken finished with top honours for week 29, getting two scores bang on the money.

Micky D clawed a precious few points back to give him a fighting chance of avoiding Ken’s fate last season of the wooden spoon.

Pat was the only other player to get a score right, like Ken and Micky D also predicting the Baggies would win 2-1 at home to Sunderland.

It’s only fitting, I suppose, that Ken, Micky D and Pat should get that one right, as they are the trio of Boing-Boingers in our league.

For Jase, Les and Jord, it was slim pickings this week, with no correct scores and only two correct results a-piece.

This poor performance sees Jase and Les fall further behind Ken’s pole position, plus allowing Pat to gain a little ground on their joint second place.

For Jord, it sees the gap between he and Micky D shrink to within just a couple of points at the foot of the table.

As well as the Super Six Week 30 fixtures next week, we have the next round of our cup, being the first Saturday in the month.

That’s also getting too close to call as we reach the penultimate round of the phase 2 round robin.  The fixtures for the last four will be announced before kick-off next week.

Here we are, then; the round up of week 29 results in the 2012-13 the Super 6 competition.

Darrell Super 6 Results - Week 29

Darrell Super 6 Results – Week 29

Fixtures for next week and a run-down of current form on our Super 6 entry form (Darrell Super 6 only, not the real one).

That’s about it from Get Thet, Go!, other than to say that there’s a new feature on our ‘next week’s predictions on the entry form page.

Beneath each team on the fixture sheet, there’s a link to an overview of their current form on the SKY Sports’ site.  Think I’ll be taking a peep at that – can’t have the wife finishing higher than me in the league, can I?

See you next week, folks. for more from the Super 6.

Watch out for our round-up of week 3 of the PDC Premier League and this week’s matchplay in the US on the European Tour, both coming shortly.

 

Super6 Week 24 Predictions and post-cut round-up Abu Dhabi

Oh, the best laid plans of mice and men.  In good faith I promised the rest of our Super 6 predictions in the middle of the week.

With snow, scaffold, workmen and disruption we were no sooner getting the rest of the predictions on for Week 24 than any other week.

At least the delay has presented the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: the rest of the Super 6 predictions and a round up of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship after Round 3.

Let’s start with the predictions of the rest of my Motley Crew (you can find my week 24 predictions, here). Herewith:

How unreal is this? Micky D and Ken remarkably predicted 5 of the six same scores. The only difference was the Liverpool v Norwich game.

Ken predicted 2 – 2, Micky D predicted 2 -1. The shock was not in the fact that Micky D predicted Liverpool to win a game, but the difference in the accumulator odds purely down to that one differing prediction.

Ken’s odds with SKY Bet returned at 383/1 for all six results; Micky D’s was just 87/1. I was amazed. No wonder the missus only gives me 50p e/w to bet at a time.

So there’s our predictions for Week 24 on the Super 6; now, how is Team Ten Tee 20 Vision faring at the National Golf Course in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship?

Rory & Tiger fail to make the cut in Abu Dhabi

I’m guessing there were plenty following the Woods/McIlroy/Kaymer pairing over the first two days. Of the three, only the 3-time winner of this event, Martin Kaymer, progressed.

Surprised? I’m not.

Of the ten golfers who make up the first Ten Tee 20 Vision Fantasy Race to Dubai team of the 2013 European Tour season, only two have failed to make the cut.  And they’re not Rory McIlroy or Tiger Woods.

¿Que, Señor? I dain’t pick ’em for my team, amigo.

One word – pressure.  McIlroy’s under £80M pounds worth to prove to Nike he’s worth the investment.  Tiger Woods wants desperately to be Official Golf World Ranking’s top dog, again.  Both blew it.  Tiger missing the cut by 3 shots, McIlroy by 6.

Factor in that Rory’s got to get used to his new Nike golf clubs and that he and Tiger were head-to-head in every tee box, you didn’t have to be Nostradamus to foresee their failure.

Martin Kaymer progressing to the weekend golf action, however, was a banker.  Confident, on a roll, thrice winner at the National Course in Abu Dhabi – the German making the cut was a dead cert.

The two golfers who’ve let our side down the first week of the Fantasy Race to Dubai are Ireland’s Paul McGinley and Italy’s Franceso Molinari.  Both missed the weekend action by carding rounds of 149 after the first two rounds, the cut being 144.

Our team’s best chance of glory going into the fourth and final day in Abu Dhabi is, of course, Justin Rose.  Doesn’t he always get off to a blinder?  He sits two shots clear at the top of the Leaderboard on -12 for the first three days, brandishing the UK Golf flag, heralding the 2013 challenge.

The Leaderboard with the all remaining eight golfers from the Ten Tee 20 Vision team is as follows:

FRTD - Week 1 R3 - Ten Tee 20 Vision

Race To Dubai – Week 1 R3 – Ten Tee 20 Vision
