SBTRKT 2 v The Fall (3) 20
Kitchens of Distinction 9 v Talking Heads 15
Sonic Youth 5 v Edwyn Collins 19
The Velvet Underground 15 v Talk Talk 9
(as at 11 pm on Monday 12 Feb)
Fewer goals scored in the first half this week….has the competition lost its shine already??
Worth mentioning also that nobody has yet, in any of the previous ties, been able to turn round a half-time defecit. The whistle went a little bit early this week as I couldn’t have the post interfering with a Valentine’s Day special, so maybe history can be made. But somehow I don’t see SBTRKT creating it. Or indeed any of the others….nobody has yet turned round a five-goal defecit (although the Fannies came mighty close last week)
One other thing….I’m dispensing with the banging pop tunes normally played at half-time – something that should go down well with Swiss Adam among others. Instead, you’ll be treated to something from the ICA of a singer or band knocked out in the last round by one of the eight sides competing so you can realise what your previous voting patterns have deprived the tournament of:-
Remember….if you haven’t voted yet this week, you have until 10pm this coming Friday.
