We are playing for £575 in competition six.
Between the 4 players who made it into round seven you selected 5 teams...
04 - Spurs
01 - Derby
01 - Man Utd
01 - Ross County
01 - Sheff Utd
All four players selected Spurs to dispose of relegated Huddersfield in Saturday's early kick off and this they did running out comfortable four nil winners with goals from Wanyama ( 24 ) and a hat trick from Moura ( 27,87,93 ),Therefore it was all based on their second selections..
Derby were the next obvious selection as they were at home against a struggling Bolton side and they were to also run out four nil winners with goals from Bryson ( 37 ) and another hatrick,this time from Mount ( 45,55,82 ) doing the business and with Paddingtonbear3 selecting both Spurs annd Derby he easily waltzed into round eight.
Ross County was selected by former competition winner Dumbartonrock but unfortunately for him Scottish championship winners elect Ross County couldn't find a way past a poor Partick team and the game was to finish goalless and out he went at round seven,a case of near yet so far.
Very very unlucky for Rossy3010 who selected Sheff Utd to beat Millwall at home,Madine had put the Blades in front on the 51st minute and then late on went down to ten men after John Egan received a second yellow for hand ball in the box to give "The Lions a great opportunity to nick a point with the resulting penalty however it cracked off the top of the bar and danger over...You would think...Five minutes into stoppage time and BANG! Former Rangers target Jake Cooper equalised when he threw himself to head home - 1-1 and out went the very unfortunate Rossy.
So with only the evening game between Man Utd and West Ham to come along Paddingtonbear3 was holding the pot - £575
Evothsat was on united,Pogba put the Manchester club one to the good after only nineteen minutes and from thereonin we thought it would be plain sailing,not at all as the Hammers came storming back in the second half with a goal from Anderson levelling the tie up,the London club had chance after chance but luckily for Evo just couldn't find that wee extra spark and back came United and they were awarded a decisive penalty on the 80th minute,Progba scored his second and Manu took ( or is that stole ) all three points.
