That’s a wrap. GW19 all sewn up & tucked up in bed with a glass of warm milk so that all our snowflakes can be rested for GW20 in just 2 days
The Vardy & Mahrez roadshow turned in another goal-less game against a Kompany-less City leaving Wenger’s crew atop the table going into 2016. Southampton, having comfortably dispatched the Gunners in the previous GW, fell foul to the Hammers, where even Carroll got on the scoresheet while, despite Mourinho scarves on sale outside the ground, Untidy held Hiddink’s crew, but it seems even the goal posts hate the team right now. Spuds did Palace no favours against 10 man Watford, keeping the Eagles stuck at 5th & Ed Balls’ first day as Norwich CEO saw them take the mighty Villa apart leaving Remi Garde wondering what the hell he signed up for. On Wearside, Liverpool plunged Big Sam’s season even further down the khazi in a match where one highlight was the fuzz telling Klopp to calm down. The game of the weekend though was Everton Vs Stoke. 7 goals that saw a Toffees comeback, spearheaded by former Star Trek baddie Romulan Locutus, dashed by a stoppage time penalty. Those pesky Potters eh?
In the real world of FPL though, the EIB recovered from a boxing day defeat in a pretty high scoring GW. The final scores of 2015 are: EIB 802 - 747 IGM, handing the EIB a 55 point victory for the GW, reducing IGM’s overall lead to just 30 points.
The will be singing Auld Lang Syne with @mort’s Nobby Nobbs XI this year & the goes to figie’s high town fc for hitting a century.
In H2H land, the EIB extend the lead to 25 points, ending the year on 323 to IGM’s 298.
Mrs @mort will be snagging her cardy on the for another GW as Nobby Nobbs XI retain said headgear . However, the gap at the top is shrinking with FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 just one point behind & 3rd, 4th & 5th just 3points shy of the lead.
So it’s back to the shed to get the fireworks ready for the new year’s party & lock the cat away somewhere safely away from the noise. Getting my best frock ready & spiking the barnet up good & proper. figie’s bringing the ouzo & will no doubt have his best n!kes on & I understand @mort has some spare chocolate left over from xmas
So from the EIB, we bid you a happy & safe new year & sincerely hope that U2 isn’t the first sound you wake to tomorrow. Over to you Mav-meister with The GW 20 thread already up & running
