Slightly truncated GW this week due to the League Cup final which means Liverpool, City, Everton & Newcastle don’t play (in the FPL) at the weekend. So those of you stacked with players from these four, well, it could prove a bit of a headache.
So, last GW saw Chelski find their scoring shoes finally & the top four are jostling for the silverware as Leicester finally succumbed to a late winner at Arsenal & the Spuds managed to snatch all three points at City. &, just as Wellbeck’s comeback yielded a goal, Daniel “sicknote” Sturridge braved a light midlands breeze to net the first goal in a six goal rout of the mighty Villa. As Remi Garde relished a bit of a break from the constant defeats, he held a closed doors training match only to see his first team lose 3-0 to the under 21 team.
All that aside, in the FPL, the IGM’s winning streak was cut mercifully (see what I did there?) short as the EIB nicked the week by 28 points iesus’ Meteora Heartland FCsnagged theYellow Jersey, while a hearty (see what I did there?) Big Shout Out went to @mort ’s Nobby Nobb XI for his 60 points.
Over in the H2H league EIB continue to dominate & extend the lead to 44 points, while top of the pile Meteora Heartland FC are colour co-ordinating with both the Yellow Jersey & the crown.
So what does this GW have in store? Will LVG’s tenure at Old Trafford finally end? Will the Foxes lose more momentum? Will Bilic publish his ode to Payet in the match day programme? & will crisp manufacturers please put salt n vinegar back into blue packets? Will whoever nicked the toilet paper from the shed please return it?
Welcome to the Stadium of Faith for your GW27 thread
Kate will be managing my team, I sacked the Father in Law as he sold Mahrez, Vardy, Ighalo etc etc and bought names he recognised! Kate will be heartless, see I can do it too, with her selection - she assures me it won't be based on the "he's got good legs" ranking system. Luckily she didn't opt for that method when marrying me!
