Last week’s games were closer than most of the other ties thus far in Round 2, and indeed the match up between Caerphilly and Cincinatti swung one way and the another before the eventual winners picked up six successive late votes to prevent any penalty shoot-out.
Match 21 : Suede 25 Scritti Politti 14
Match 22 : Manic Street Preachers 18 The National 23
Match 23 : Siouxsie & The Banshees 23 Amelia Fletcher 14
Match 24: Lloyd Cole 25 v The Delgados 16
If I had been involved in voting last week, I’d have suffered three disappointments. But hey, it’s a democracy…..for the time being!
I reckon if the bookmakers were to take a look at this week’s match-ups that some teams would be installed as odds-on favourites…….but who knows?
The Sweet (1st in Group F) v Chumbawamba (8th in Group E)
The Triffids (4th in Group H) v Soft Cell (5th in Group G)
Orange Juice (2nd in Group G) v Bauhaus (7th in Group F)
Comsat Angels (3rd in Group E) v The Breeders (6th in Group H)
As ever, thanks for taking part. Voting closes at midnight (UK time) next Friday, which is the 21st of October.
