Alrighty then. Have we all had a nice break? So what’s happened then? Mr Costa is back in action, Stoke’s defence has been reduced to a few blades of grass & Wayne Rooney has auditioned for the Flying Graysons (again). The impending manager press conferences have fast turned into drinking games with the utterance of “tough”, “respect”, “long ball” all earning a swift shot of something akin to nail varnish remover & you’ll have to neck two shots with the bonus “attacking options”. As for Mourinho, his quotes have reportedly been banned from drinking games due to his comments regarding drinking games mounting a campaign against him. Anyway, it’s time to open the gates at The Stadium Of Faith for this week’s game.
GW25 wasn’t so much a thrashing as a sharp smack on the back of a leg on a cold day with The Industrial Groove Machine taking the spoils by +38 points. Can The Eleven Imaginary Boys at least leave a welt with a wet towel this week?
The Yellow Jersey seems to be feeling right at home with Johhny Rev 7.0’s FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 & probably leaving little yellow flecks on his Sisters t-shirts in the wash.
A two way (matron) Big Shout Out went to Johnny’s FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 & paulwUK’s Simply Elegant for clawing 60 points out of an otherwise pretty low scoring GW.
So the nets are up, pies are in the oven & vanishing spray has just been delivered (don’t tell David Luiz though)
Welcome to your GW26 thread. Let’s plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay ball!.
I just looked at the teams & had a horrible thought flash into my head. What if Jose decides not to use Costa & Pellegrini rests Aguero ahead of next week's Barca game? That would leave most of us totally screwed
