Last Man Standing

Last Man Standing is a fun competition based on the Premier League fixtures where you have to predict a winning team each week until there is only one man (or woman) left. They will take half the winnings with the rest going to Ballynahinch United to help with club running costs and improvements.



Newcastle stuttered to a draw with West Ham on Sunday to see two of the last three drop out, hoping for Spurs to slip up too. But Mourinho’s men stumbled to a 1 – 0 win vs Everton on Monday night to crown Sam Davidson as the Last Standing and win the bumper cash prize. Congrats! Until next time…

After 9 Weeks, split by the lockdown, a winner was crowned.

Game Week 9

And another one bites the dust! Only two teams were chosen between the four contestants in Game Week 8, but Palace’s dismal display vs Burnley saw Ben Wilson crash out.The rest backed Man United, who completed a convincing victory against Brighton. So, three remain in what is a tough set of fixtures running over the weekend from Saturday to Monday.

Three is the magic number.

Game Week 8

After picking Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester, one unfortunate contestant slips out of the competition. Four remain with the next game week spread from Saturday 27 June to Thursday 2 July. Liverpool have now won the league but can someone win our Last Man Standing this week.

The Last 8

Game Week 4

In a wild weekend of results, many people suffered the calamity of crashing out. First out were all 14 that had selected Leicester vs Norwich in the Friday night fixture after The Foxes fell to a 1 – 0 defeat.

Saturday’s results weren’t much kinder, with Chelsea’s draw seeing another 6 eliminated from the competition. The remaining fixtures during the weekend saw 6 more miss out on progressing when Tottenham (1), Brighton (1), Southampton (1) and Newcastle (3) all failed to win.

That leaves just 8 still standing, having picked Man City and Sheff Utd – neither played after their games were postponed due to the Carabao Cup Final.

See who still stands, and if you’re one of the lucky 8, make sure to get your pick in before the first kick off (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Only 8 remain after Game Week 4

Game Week 3

With 18 people waiting on Wolves to win in Game Week 3, they were all delighted to see them canter to a 3 – 0 victory vs Norwich while the seven who selected Man Utd to defeat Watford were equally delighted with the same scoreline.

Only 5 unfortunate people crashed out this week, with one on Bournemouth and the other four on Sheff Utd, who drew vs Brighton.

That leaves 34 still standing. The most popular pick going into Game Week 4 is Leicester, with 14 hopeful The Foxes can claim their first win since our competition began, when they kick off on Friday at 8pm, vs Norwich. Elsewhere, Chelsea (6) and Man City (5) are the next most popular choices.

Who is left after GW3?

Game Week 2

After Game Week 2, 39 remain! 24 people sailed safely through by default after Man City’s game vs West Ham was postponed – as is the rules. All of them selected Man City.

Only 2 unfortunate entrants dropped out this week, having picked Southampton – who lost to Burnley, and Chelsea, who lost to Man Utd.

In Game Week 3, 18 of the 39 remaining people are hoping Wolves will be able to beat bottom of the table Norwich on Sunday at 2pm, while 7 others have pinned their hopes on Man Utd – against second from bottom, Watford, at the same time.
