Getting us underway in GW25 we had Spurs facing Citeh killers, Newcastle. & it looked like the Magpies were going to hold their North (that) Laaandahn hosts until Son, returning from the Asia cup, broke the deadlock on the 83rd minute sending Spurs second in the table. The south coast scum were thwarted by Watford’s Ben Foster as a goalless draw played out & Burnley scraped a last minute draw at home to Southampton & prolly should have had an earlier penalty given that would have seen them climb to 15th. Uddersfield were ripped to bits by Chelski as their shiny new striker, Gonzo, & Hazard got a brace each & Luis being awarded a 5th despite the fact it was clearly an own goal by Kachunga. With Zaha suspended Palace had to grit their teeth but overcame Fulham 2-0 with the Batsman providing the assist for the second almost as soon as he came on the pitch. Everton’s miserable spell continues as their defence insists on zonal marking. *note to Silva* Players score goals, not zones. Visitors Wolves took them to task winning 1-3 in a game where even a cat outplayed Everton as proven by the Final Score commentary. & because of the feline invasion seven minutes had to be added on. At an emotional game in Cardiff the Bluebirds notched up a rare win over an in-form Bournemouth side taking the points with a 2-0 scoreline. On Sunday Leicester fell behind on the 9th minute as Untidy’s new strategy of long ball over the top paid off for the visitors with Rashers scoring on his 100th PL appearance. Still licking their wounds after the Newcastle defeat, Citeh were a goal to the good after 49 seconds courtesy of Agüero (who scored after 24 seconds against the Toon). & it looked as if they’d scored too soon again as Koscielny equalised 10 minutes later with a superb stooping header. But this game was all about Kun (& some dubious reffing from Atkinson) who notched up his 10th PL hat trick (although the third was via his arm). This leap-froged the blues back into second & just 2 points behind the leaders Liverpool. & so it was up to Liverpool to extend their lead to 5 points as they took on Wet Spam at the taxpayers’ stadium of bubbles on Monday. & could they do it? No. Despite opening with an offside goal a well worked Spammers free kick tied up the game & end their losing run leaving the reds just 3 points clear. Title race on! With their rescheduled game, Everton & Citeh went head to head at Goodison with the home side hoping the cat wouldn’t return & confuse their defenders again. It didn’t & Citeh carved out a fairly routine 0-2 win to take them back to the top of the table. However, everyone else has a game in hand now, so how long or short lived that lead will be is up in the air.
It was a heavy hitting week in the FPL due to the (mini) double GW featuring no fewer than 2 (net) tons &, with a bruising victory, the BB&S thumped in 835 points. In contrast to the real PL, the lead stayed unchanged so the remains with Dead Men Walking. As for the
Well, with a massive 122 pointswilgy ’s Faith Rovers secured that with what I think is the biggest haul of the season so far. As for the table..
Just another day at the office for the BB&S as they swooped in & took the H2H week with 21 points. & it was all change at the top with the
nestling nicely on the bonce of Mish Mosh. The standings..
So we have another quick turnaround to plan for in the shed & we are closely analysing the ref's table to try & ensure we avoid players in a match officiated by Mike Dean or Craig Pawson. We’re also on the hunt for a cat to run on the pitch this week. It may just give us the edge we need to close the gap. But this does have the unfortunate effect of making the shed smell like old tuna as we try to lure one in. But we have catsncheese on hand who reckons cheese will work as better bait. It’s not really helping the smell thing though. Anyway, while we get on with that silliness I’ll hand you back to emilystrange for GW26
