POOL TOTALWe are playing for £560 in competition five.
Forty three players made it into round six and between you all you selected eleven teams as follows....
23 - Kilmarnock
14 - Man Utd
12 - Middlesbrough
09 - Leicester
08 - Leeds
08 - Spurs
05 - West Brom
03 - Dundee Utd
02 - Man City
01 - QPR
01 - Watford
And for the second consecutive week it was a rotten one for the players with only four selections from the eleven coming in which in turn meant a massive twenty nine leaving us at a very crucial stage of the competition and this leaves only fourteen remaining with three rounds still to go.
Nine of you were on Leicester who surprisingly lost at home to lowly Cardiff 0 - 1,Camerasa scoring deep into stoppage time ( 90 + 2 ),and with two teams to correctly select ( in essence ) out went...
Who all chose the Filbert Street club.
Eight of you went for Leeds who were hosting a much improved Hull team in the English championship and it was the 'much improved Hull team' who ran out comfortable 0 - 2 winners with a brace from Bowen ( 25 & 58 ) doing the business...
All selecting the home team.
There was a further eight selections on Spurs who also had too many after eights following the festivities as they went down 1 -3 to Wolverhampton Wanderers,goal scoring machine Harry Kane had put the hosts one up after 22 minutes however late goals from Boly ( 72 ) Jiminez ( 83 ) and Costa ( 87 ) and it was three to one and one great shock result that no one seen coming especially..
And the eighth player to chose Spurs was Helicoptersunday who was simply having a terrible day however he wasn't the only one who got both selections wrong.
There was five shouts for West Brom...
And Bluesea,Bontamsyl and Larrymac were also having a terrible day as their other selections ( Leeds,Leeds & Spurs ) failed to win .The Baggies could only draw 1-1 at home versus Sheffield Wednesday and out went all.
For whatever reason three of you went for Dundee Utd who were away to Alloa in what i personally thought was a very stiff ask,Booth did however put Dundee Utd ahead on the hour alas it was cancelled out on the seventy third by Alloa's Graham and then on the last minute Zanatta knocked in the winner - Alloa 2 - 1 Dundee Utd and out went...
And finally both Brothermoses and previous winner Dumbartonrock joined the other four who got both selections wrong,BM went for QPR who drew zero zero at Loftus Road v Reading and DR selected Watford who drew one one at home v Newcastle.
