With our heroes back from the international break in various states of disrepair the transfer market saw a flurry of activity with (mostly the wrong) players being switched for alternatives. & we kicked off at Standard Bilge where it looked like ManUre were staging an amazing comeback again thanks to Martial’s 2 second half goals. But, in the dying seconds, Ross Barkley netted an equaliser that sparked a touchline kerfuffle as Chelski’s assistant coach decided it’d be a good idea to troll JoMo in front of 40,000 of his adoring fans. The South Coast derby was a dour affair & not really worth mentioning other than Sparky was glad not to have lost another game. A 6 goal thriller at Cardiff saw the home side take their first win of the season while Burnley went to the Etihad for their annual ritual slaughter to the tune of 5-0. Despite losing their star striker early one, the South Coast scum unlocked Newcastle’s defence on the 29th minute & held on to win & pleasing the home fans no end. Spurs once again made it look hard as they could only muster to the one goal at Wet Spam & Watford had obviously seen my new goalie selection as they ended Wolves’ winning run.

Just the one game on Sunday featuring 2 late dammits to sink Premier League Favourites, Palace, as Hodgson apparently forgot he had substitutes until the 89th minute. But it’s a minor setback as, mathematically, the title is still within The Eagles’ reach. Monday & the Gunners make it 10 wins in all competitions on the trot. Having gone behind to a Bellerin own goal, Arsenal turned it up a notch & were level by the half as Ozil bossed the midfield with some vintage Gunners football. The hosts aded 2 more through some of the best passing & team goals seen all season to keep their unbeaten run intact.
But the big news of the week is that the EIB won the classic this week by 91 points as they close down the gap on the BB&S to just 420 points. The stays put with Dead Men Walking, while the
Goes to figie ’s high town F.C. for a superb 75 points in a GW where the average was just 43 globally. The table
& it was double bubble for the EIB, who also took the H2H by 7 points leaving them 16 behind the leaders. The is on the move again, as Brian Munich takes receipt of the shiny headgear. & as usual, the table
As you can imagine, there was a bit of a party in the shed last night. We may have got a little carried away though. Not to worry. We ordered a temporary HQ which has just been delivered. So while we spend the day carrying old tobacco tins of rusty screws & various old tea chests full of... I daren’t even think.. to the hew pad I’ll say tarah for this week & thanks to everyone playing. See you for the super spooky pre-halloween encounter next weekend.
