Q&A met Fatboy, manager of The Real Cherry Spliits, this week’s champs, in the drawing room at Q&A Towers.

16 - 01 - 2017

Hello 7OTB Fans, None of last week’s 40 who got their 7 could repeat the feat this week. But in a low-scoring week there are still prizes going out!

Rafa, take that signed photo of Eric Cantona off the wall and open the wall safe- Q&A requires a fistful of fifties for Captain BD, a repeat guest to Q&A Towers.

But first back to our prize winner. We had over 2,000 people qualify for the prize but there can only be one winner. And here they are, chosen at random by our super computer...

02 - 01 - 2017

First off - Happy New Year to everyone. I hope you are all in good shape after a prolonged festive period. Some may have overspent, so we hope this week’s winnings ease the burden a bit.

Q&A invited Britt, manager of this week's Team winners Score Predictor Club, to Q&A Towers in a secret location for another interview. After being served tea and scones by Rafa, Q&A’s Spanish butler, the discussion began:

19 - 12 - 2016

Before we start, and in case I forget, there is no 7OTB next weekend as we are taking a rest, but back open at 10am on Boxing Day 26th of December or St Stevens’s day for my fellow Irishmen.

Q&A had an off the record chat with Bet Dodd, the quietly-spoken man of steel behind Taking The Pass, week 17 Team winners:

05 - 12 - 2016

£1,500 goes to Taking the Pass this week, who are either very nice people or they got there A mixed up with there I. But they don't care a jot. They are mainly from Manchester and continue the good run of leagues from the North.

Q&A spoke with the exotically-named Eddiepant, this week's winner with a 100% selections record- and the first thing she did was interrupt:

28 - 11 - 2016

It's one step at a time to reach the £500,000 jackpot. And all of last week's success stories took a step backwards this week - the only player at stage two at this point being this week's top prize winner Eddiepant. The only person in the country to get 7 correct selections in.

Q&A spoke with the Happy Hammer (HH to his mates), who was one of the original pub players back before 7otb.com - jumpers for goalposts; social media was word of mouth; fiddling about with Excel spreadsheets etc:

21 - 11 - 2016

6 players were tied on 28 points this week, with the help of an extra point for 4-goal-winning-margins separating them from another 10 who got all 7 predictions correct. So first off there are 16 people on the first step to the £500,000 jackpot.

Q&A spoke with Britt, the modest yet focused manager of Score Predictor Club, after they swept the opposition aside over the international break:

14 - 11 - 2016

New team 'Score Predictor Club' took the honours this week. Most of this team joined last week so must think this is easy. We don't know much about this new team yet, except they are managed by a woman and we think they are from the Manchester region - and...

Q&A spoke with Pekay, the suavely-attired manager of Dynamo CashCow:

07 - 11 - 2016

Not one person could pick 6 winners and a draw, despite 37 matches to pick from this week. But Tex got 24 points to take the weekly £500 prize. With a name like Tex you would suspect this chap is from the Lone Star State in the USA.

Q&A spoke with Beefy, a senior player in Reality Cheque, this week's Team winners, on behalf of their reclusive manager JG, who is on a scouting mission in France this week at "Sept des Meilleurs":

31 - 10 - 2016

Let's start with the best team of the week. With 191 points the £1,500 prize narrowly goes to 'Reality Cheque' who pipped 'Frankie went to Hollywood', also on 191 points, with a higher average player position. Both teams just beat 'Taking the pass' in 3rd on 190 points.

This week Q&A interviewed The Very Cherry Croydon Svengali, Bluefinbar, for the second time in a month, and he had plenty to say:

24 - 10 - 2016

This week's 7OTB Hero is Leeboy93, the only person in the county to find 7 correct results. When you consider there were 67 games to pick from this weekend it must mean the rest of us are rubbish.

212 points was enough for the Sheffield based 'Raising Beer Tokens' to win the team competition and take home the £1,500 prize this week. We caught up with their cryptically-named team manager 'Terry'.

17 - 10 - 2016

With the big leagues returning after an international break, so did the players who missed out last week. They say practice makes perfect and SavveyShayne finally lived up to his name after 9 weeks playing the game, with some savvy selections.

No Premier League or Championship football at the weekend but no worries at Seven of the Best - we still played to a limited program. Less is more as the saying goes. Or as my bank manager once said to me after my new credit card arrived: "that's a limit,...

We at 7OTB recently ran a nationwide competition where football teams were asked to write in and tell us how £1000 would benefit their team.

26 - 09 - 2016

In the highest scoring week to date we have more debut success in the individual and team competitions.

19 - 09 - 2016

Well what a week for Sheffield and in particular Emma W! With 7 Of The Best being strictly for over-18's, it might seem a little strange that this week's team prize winners are the Sheffield Rangers U10's.

Who won what? A roundup of the weekend's in-game action.

Wanderers FC, Old Etonians, Spurs, Clapham Rovers, West Auckland Town FC, Sheffield FC, Hyde United FC...

Of last week's 24 players who correctly predicted all 7 results, 21 fell at the second hurdle while three players (Kevcass1, Ross Kane, Brown 94) remain on stage one as they had a void game. The Newport game was postponed so their selections did not count towards the 7-in-a-row Jackpot, but did for all other competitions where the void game scored 2 points.

30 - 08 - 2016

Both player's who made 7 correct selections last week failed to repeat the feat this weekend, and so restart their quest for the £500,000 jackpot. But in a high scoring week, 24 players got their 7, and will be aiming to conquer the next step next week.

Well that got your attention! But this is not about a Danny Dyer football movie but my memories as a retired police officer that lives in Spain and I am a lifelong Aston Villa fan.

2 players correctly selected all 7 results this week and have completed the first step to winning the £500,000 jackpot. Can Dagur or The Swindon Lad get one step closer next weekend with another correct 7?
