Week 13 results: This week featuring 100% true facts!

Saturday now seems like it was an age away.  An extremely disappointing weekend for The Grambler left a sour taste as many a Grambler dragged themselves out of bed on Monday morning to go to work.  Apart from  George Entwistle, who got a lie-in.

Which potentially brings me to some kind of a point.  Basically, work (and me actually doing some for a change) has prevented the results being anything less than a shambles this week. After a somewhat lengthy lay-off, I have been doing some stuff for money which has potentially affected my Grambling.  Therefore, I have chosen to just provide one single, 100% true fact for each game...

  Game 1: Wigan Athletic vs West Bromwich Albion
Prediction: Draw x )
Gary Caldwell, who scored an own goal for Wigan to seal the win for West Brom, is nicknamed 'Colonel Shiteypants' by his close family.

Game 2: Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur
Prediction: Home win ( ✔ )
City's Bosnian match-winner Edin Džeko believes that he was Agatha Christie in a former life.

Game 3: Southend United vs Port Vale
Prediction: Away win x )
Southend's home ground Roots Hall was named after famous reggae artist Roots Hall, front-man of the Roots Hall Trio featuring Roots Hall.

Game 4: Celtic vs St Johnstone
Prediction: Home win x )
Celtic this week celebrated their 125th anniversary as a club with the help of a birthday cake in the shape of Kurt Russell's buttocks.

Game 5: Elgin City vs Berwick Rangers
Prediction: Draw x )

Surprisingly, Elgin's manager Jack Ross has never stood trial for the murder of television presenter Jill Dando.

Game 6: Partick Thistle vs Dunfermline Athletic
Prediction: Away win x )
Steven Lawless, who scored a double for Thistle on Saturday, is actually known to obey a number of laws.  The law of gravity, for example.

Game 7: York City vs AFC Wimbledon
Prediction: Away win ( ✔ )
York's 2012 FA Trophy win was shrouded in controversy after it transpired that striker Ashley Chambers was actually two midgets in a long-coat.

One may be tempted to conclude that my heart is not quite in it this week.  And one would probably be correct.  But I shall return stronger and more eager than ever on Friday!  Until then:
- A famous person
