It has been another fun week on Last Man Standing Headquarters dealing with all kinds of riff raff as I collate the results from week 3. More on that later.
What's that you say? Week 3 is not over yet. United and Liverpool play tomorrow night. Well the savy Last Man Standing contestant knows not to bet on Man United tomorrow so none of the remaining 13 contestants actually picked them. On the other hand there was nobody gonna take a risk on this vital game on Monday as Liverpool have not been firing on all cylinders either. So nobody picked Liverpool either which means I can publish the Week 3 results a day early.
Back at @hivefpl @belemo is cracking the whip as well to make sure I file my report by 10pm Monday night so best to get the Last Man Standing results out of the way this evening.
Let's have a look at the final 13 selections and who got through.

We say goodbye to only 4 contestants this week which is a surprise actually. The main reason is because everyone went for Man City last bloody week. Only 1 person had this this week. And that person was @emeka4 . Man city barely scraped a draw today against Newcastle so you are now eliminated from the competition. We will be sorry to see you go @emeka4

@cryptoandcoffee the Last Man Standing Stalwart made a shock exit this week by picking Leicester City. He was playing the long game here but it came back to bite him. Unlucky my friend.

@dest331 is out. He/she picked Everton but was lucky to get through last week as they did not make a selection. Everton??? Anyway we say goodbye to you.

@chrisbetcoin (also known as Nostradamus) gave me his choice which was Leicester. He told us how they were going to win and what the result was going to be. He also told us what the Xg was going to be and what Jamie Vardy was going to have for breakfast before the match. Unfortunately for Chris, Southampton had other ideas and rained on his parade so he is eliminated from the competition. Although I will let you back in if you tell me the lotto numbers for Saturday night. Only joking. Cheers thanks for entering!

There are two lucky fuckers that didn't give me a selection this week. Now normally I would turn up at their doorstep demanding a selection. But in my old age I am just going by the rules. My Irish buddy @ablaze and my non Irish buddy I imagine @temitopeomojuwa. You two were allocated Arsenal as they were the first team in alphabetical order that you two did not pick. Unfortunately for me Arsenal are having the best start to their season since the invincible's so you two got through.
@talesfrmthecrypt picked them as well to get them out of the way before they face a tough challenge. He knows they are frail.

6 (wise) contestants (almost half of you ) picked Tottenham so I put them through to round 4 last week because I knew Spurs were going to win.

So we are down to the last 9. I expect this Last Man Standing has 3 more rounds at the most. Here are the fixtures for game week 4. Just think about the last 3 rounds. You have won with 3 teams. You would get a good return in a betting shop if you did these bets and compounded but how long can you last at this?

Things will start getting a bit tougher this week as contestants have already 3 teams picked. Most of the contestants also have 3 out of last years top 4 picked barring a couple of the old regulars who are playing strategically getting some weaker teams out of the way.
The cut off for entries is 12pm on Saturday morning. There will be a quick turnaround from game week 4 into game week 5 which is the first round of midweek fixtures.
So get your selections in as soon as you like.

Any Other Business

I would like to disclose on the blockchain that a contestant tried to bribe me last week with 1 Hive for reentry. It was entitled "Bribe" on the blockchain. No doubt they were a Woolwich fan. I immediately called the Hive police and did not build an extension on the house with the 1 Hive. Fortunately for Last Man Standing it is a game that is black and white. You either win or you are out. It wouldn't take a brain surgeon to figure out that the guy that lost last week is still in the game. Anyway the excel sheet is attached for transparency and the moral ethics of Last Man Standing is still upheld. We will put that little misdemeanour to bed. Now if they gave me 1000 Hive then thats another story completely. I will leave my mobile in the comments for anyone that wants to avail of that service.

Best of luck to the remaining 9.
It is getting good now.

It is a pleasure participating in the contest but yeah am only allowed to pick a team once and the best teams to pick in mind this week was Tottenham and Arsenal which I have already picked before. Goodluck to the remaining contestants

Leicester are uselesssss but it was a good gamble and no regrets. I agree Arsenal are going to crash and burn very soon as there is some stiff competition around. Hope the rest bum out this week so we can start a new one of these. This was just a warm up and doesn't count.

Tell them it was a trial run so everyone can learn the rules and we are starting from now. You had to make an exception for United and Arsenal fans as they are not so intelligent and this was the only fair way of teaching them how the game works. They are used to losing so will be happy you saved them from another failure yet again.

🙂 Arsenal burn? I see.

Anyways some of us are congratulating Arsenal faithfuls in advance, for a job well done this season and telling them to GO AND RELAX,THEY ARE BACK TO THE CHAMP LEAGUE. The reasons why are stated therein.

Lol. Only a dreamer would think that this early in the season as there are so many twists and turns yet to come. Finishing in the top 4 will not be easy and 3 games don't make a season so I would wait and see where they are in February as the Christmas period is going to be seriously hectic for teams due to the shut down of the League for 6 weeks due to the world cup. This is going to test the squad depth like no other season before and why having depth will be even more important.

I have collated the reasons why it didn't happen for them last season and it is no rocket science.
Those reasons have been firmly dealt with,with interest even.
Any other challenge you have mentioned,is a general thing that affects all teams.

In this wise,please clear the isle,the Gunners are waiting for those who would join them for Champions League qualification parade.

Well if you disagree,just like I think Mr Blanchy will do too, we can wait and see as the days go by..

You are digging your own grave on here lol with these words as being too cock sure will only come back and bite you. Let us wait and see as I will remind you daily when the wheels come off. Any sports fan will tell you that you never count your chickens before they hatch and this will only end in disaster. I will send you some tissues as no bitching and complaining when it happens.

Hehe,maybe you are the one who manufactured the wheels,with your assurance that they will come off.

Boss,let's go there I'm quite sure of what my blog states, I await to see how your proposition will see the light of day because it won't.

It's a pleasure for this entire discourse.👍

I really want to keep the tradition but I wouldn't trust Manchester United or Southampton to keep a drowning ship wet. I might have a different pick by Friday, but until then, my pick is Liverpool.

Ha ha ha, yep 100% jinxed me and Liverpool probably won't win which I'll be delighted with, then if they do and I get ousted in week 5, I'll be thrilled if Chelski drop points and sure that only leaves week 6, where I'll fall over laughing when Spurs drop points against Fulham at home! And sure if they all win, I'll be on my way to some juicy HBI, so it's a win/win/win/win :)

Phuuu that was close with Spurs :D

I will stick with the big teams for now. I think that Liverpool will get their first home win the next time so for me the next vote would be Liverpool, please! :)

The Final 9

5 selections
4 Liverpool

Liverpool eh??? 🤔 🤔 🤔 🤔 🤔
Still awaiting selections from
@wolfgangsport
@gone-hive
@ogeewitty
@temitopeomojuwa.

If I do not get a selection you will be auto selected the first team in alphabethical order that you have not chosen previously.
Take @temitopeomojuwa for example. He or she will be allocated Bournemouth as Arsenal and Aston Villa have been selected already. Good luck with that mate but you never really know with Liverpool as they seem to have been figured out.

If Bournemouth win, temitopeomojuwa would be the biggest scam to victory. BTW, I am switching my pick to Brighton.

I will only give a contestant a two auto entries limit. It was not in the initial rules but I have called an emergency meeting with myself and decided to bring in this draft legislation.

@wolfgangsport (silent assassin)

haha! I am one that likes to fly under the radar, make minimal fuss and keep my cards close to my chest.

This is indeed getting difficult now! I also realised what you did with the spreadsheet with "Chelskee". Damn you! 🤣

I will go LIVERPOOL. I think they got their poor result once in a while out of the way. At Anfield, I only wish Bournemouth avoid conceding a record of goals.

OK Liverpool it is Wolfgang. Can't fault the choice even though Liverpool have yet to win a game. I can't see them losing at Anfield. However Scott Parker is an up anc coming new manager and Liverpool seem to have been "figured out" (Kick the ball down Trent's channel)

G'day sir,if I may borrow your lingo.

Interesting,attractive way you report these things only the "f" word not my thing eventhough I perfectly get the witty humour you used it for. Only a few people dropped out this time, clearly the contest is stiffer.
I heard I'm a big Richarlison fan,that's new to me.

Your Tottenham almost caused me worries. Paying close attention my boss himself Mr. Amirtheawesome1. He's changed to Brighton. I see his thought process with this and it shows how good he is with this game. He's made it easy for me because, I can just "copy and paste".

However, I saw this choice of his quite late, it was Liverpool he chose initially. I stay with my method thus far.

I go with me darl, Arsenal this week.

Thanks

Sorry @ogeewitty I didn't mean to corrupt your precious little mind by use of that foul word. What is a foul word by the way? Why did fucking become a fool word.
It is remotely derived from the Latin futuere and Old German ficken/fucken meaning 'to strike or penetrate', which had the slang meaning to copulate. I don't see much badness in this. Thank you for your selection. Now fuck off. 😀😀
