Analysis cup semi final - Week 3

Analysis cup semi final & week 3

So now we know the final line up for the first ever analysis cup.

Nick lines v chris blackley

The two semi finals were different in their make up. In semi 1 last seasons pele champ darryn cook took on nick lines. Nick went quite safe with southampton @0.44 and darryn went all spaghetti on us with an italian pick palermo to beat [email protected] Nicks tactics paid off as southampton continue their great season and the italians shared the points meaning darryn goes out with a whimper.

Nicks final opponent had a humdinger of a semi final. Zach went early with a renewed bolton bashing wigan @1.38 on friday night. Leaving chris blackley with a sleepless night and a further 74 minute wait for a goal. Then christie elliott shot low into the corner on the 75th minute and partick thistle held on to win @1.75 sweeping chris into the final. Making it the second time he'd piped zach to a win as he beat him by 5p to last seasons shearer league title.

So next week the first ever final of the analysis cup nick v chris.
Nick was the lowest rated player of the last throws of the cup competition having finished with a minus 1.20 total last season but this season he hasn't lost yet so can the under dog win big.
Chris blackley finished top of the shearer last season and just missed out on the overall league losing by 20p with a total of 6.80. So he can consider himself the form player. Its going to be a battle to the death.
