A wicked away win for the mighty Liverpool- i bet that was a great match to watch. 5-4. And a wicked 3-0 spanking handed to stoke by the Leicester boys. town is buzzing here in leicester.
37 poitns so far for me; with cech, barkeley and monreal still too play. i stuck with mahrez as captain and it's paid off; even though igloo would have been a better choice on the day he's seemed a tad too inconsistant some weeks to give him the aliceband. it could be worse.

I thought he'd do a lot better against Newcastle. Might need to re-assign my alice band for next week. I was seconds away from playing a triple captain chip this week. That would have been quite a nice return.

an unsatisfactory showing from my two arse-n-all players left me with 52 pts all told, a good bit above the GW's average but no cuban. down a place in the league too. just hope we win this week so its not a complete washout. won my H2H though.
As the floodlights dim on GW23 & Arsene Wenger crosses Mark Clattenburg off his xmas card list, let’s have a glance back at the action from the weekend.
The curtain raiser was a nine goal roller coaster with Liverpool clawing a last gasp victory out of the fearsome talons of the Canaries, prompting Klopp to head on down to Spec-savers for a new pair of glasses. Pardew’s Eagles continue their slump, as the Spuds brushed them aside, including a candidate for goal of the season by Alli as, across London, Man City salvaged a point at West Ham. Sunderland stopped the rot (briefly) by holding the mighty Bournemouth to a stalemate while Watford got back to winning ways, clipping the Magpies’ wings at Vicarage Road. Swansea had Tim Howard & John Stones to thank for their three points & Leicester march on, taking a three point lead at the top of the table as Jamie Vardy gets back into scoring form. Pulis ensured Villa’s season of “meh” continued, but the talk of the weekend was all about the return of Charlie Austin to the premier league. The Saints new boy took just seven minutes to stick a red hot fork into United’s erse with the winner at a sleepy Old Trafford where the home fans woke up briefly to boo their team off the field at full time.
And so we get a slight breather until next Tuesday, as cup games take front seat & we collectively sweat over who will end up on the physio’s treatment table ahead of the next GW.
But in the world of “real” FPL, the EIB are having a slump of their own. Despite recovering around 30 points in Sunday’s matches, they were unable to overcome the deficit & so the IGM comfortably secured a +86 point GW victory & hold an overall league lead of +170 points. The scores on the doors: EIB 537 - 623 IGM
A storming 89 points not only secures the , but also furnishes iesus’ Meteora Heartland FC with the .
Over in the H2H, the IGM nicked another win (13-19), closing the gap on the EIB to just 28 points. & the changes hands once again, as Johnny Rev 7.0’s FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 ascend to the summit this week.
So in the aftermath of snowmageddon here at the shed, we have resorted to drawing faces on car windscreens & making snow angels in the penalty areas which made a nice change from hunkering down & attempting to eat our own bodyweight in bread & mars bars. But now the sun’s up & the work begins to burn off those calories & shape up for GW24. Thanks to all all joined in & well played everyone. Over to you Graham
