IT had been a good week until the Europa League games came along and bit me hard.
My early goals double needed a Hapoel Beer Sheva strike and the late was beaten early by Rangers' scoreless draw in Warsaw. The Top Treble was beaten by Eintracht Frankfurt and my 1pt Super Single required an AIK goal at Celtic. At least I tipped James Forrest top score first for Celtic at 13-2.
So not a great night but after four winning days in a row I can afford to drop a few points.
Well done to all the winners on Thursday and it's interesting to see how many people are following Nathan's challenge that started successfully.

I'm hoping to go into the weekend on a high with a winning goals double. As usual my focus is on the Saturday so haven't had much time to look at Friday's games but the two live TV matches in Scotland and England promise goals.
It would go against all stats if Morton v Partick didn't produce its fair share. Morton's last five have produced 30 goals including last week's 5-3 loss to Hibs after extra time. The also lost 4-2 at Ayr and drew 3-3 with QoS.
The Jags are less prolific but their last games have brought btts including two 3-2 wins and a 2-2 draw. Last season's league meetings at Cappielow ended 0-3 and 5-1 so this has to go over 2.5 goals – and on a single I'd risk over 3.5.
Add both to score between Aston Villa and Everton. The Premiership new boys' two league games have brought up the market and they've created plenty of chances in defeats to Spurs and Bournemouth. In all five of six have seen both score and it looks like Villa will struggle to keep clean sheets.
Even Everton, with one goal in their two games but four points, should find some joy at Villa Park – and according to opta they have scored two or more goals in each of their last eight Premier League encounters with Aston Villa.
The Toffees have been solid defensively and kept two clean sheets but attack-minded Villa can break them down.
Elsewhere ig games include Cologne v Dortmund in the Bundesliga and Granada v Sevilla in La Liga as well as the usual lower-league offerings from Holland, France and Austria. Dortmund should win by a couple and can see goals in Granada but not putting up any more accas.
I posted a Saturday Super Single shortlist earlier for members and from it I've decided to choose early with League Two leaders Cove and over 1.5 match goals at pointless Stirling as the odds are dropping.
