A rare midweek gameweek took place across the course of Tuesday and Wednesday and it’s fair to say there were some shock results with Arsenal losing at home to Watford and Manchester United being held at home to struggling side Hull.
Not only that but it has blown the race for the Real Football Men title wide open, so let’s see what has happened to the runners and riders this week. Firstly there is a new name at the top of the tree as Ologo Popo reaches the summit for the first time.
He is the first man to break the 1200 point marker but although Ologo sits top he will be nervously looking over his shoulder, that’s because Kwame Twumasi sits just a further two points back on 1198 and that is without forgetting last week’s leader Andy Miller who slips to third. A big surprise was that my good friend Andy Miller scored a week low of just 25 points.
It could not get any tighter at the top thought with just three points separating 1st to 3rd. But the title is still absolutely anyone’s with Ray McDermott just 6 points back in 4th, and David McDonagh and Dennis Kioko 10 points back in joint 5th. With the margins that tight it’s not an unrealistic prospect that these positions will be all change after this weekend.
My charge up the table continues apace with the fact that I have moved up two places from 13th to 11th and the top 10 is now clearly in my sights but with only 52 points between me and top spot you have to ask yourself why only dream of the top 10. It is very much game on.
At the bottom Michael Adjetey breaks the 1000 marker thanks to his week high top score of 49 points while Matt Dickinson keeps hold of the wooden spoon with the gap now extended to Bruno B who stays in 33rd place. That’s all for this weeks roundup, Week 24 to follow some time early next week (perhaps)
Highest Score – Michael Adjetey 49
Lowest Score – Andy Miller 25
