So the pitch held together & the trodden in Mars Bar has gone, so everyone check your studs.
And what did the weekend bring? In a DGW that seemed to promise much for Chelski & Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers’ lot appeared to have washed their boots the night before & couldn’t do a thing with them on match day leaving everyone who’d picked anyone but Martin Shirtpull feeling a tad short changed.
The Spacial One’s maths might need a little adjustment after he declared they needed 5points to take the title when it is in fact 6. But his mob held off an in form Arsenal team who look to be certain for second place on recent form before taking the full 3 points on their visit to Leicester by actually putting a striker on the pitch. Then the GW was capped off with a splendid post match press rant dubbed #ostrichgate from Nigel Pearson.
Rather disappointingly, LVG appeared to have new batteries in his translator module, so no gold from the big Dutchman this week.
All that aside, I suppose we need to see how the teams got on. Righto then
Making it nine wins from the last ten, The Industrial Groove Machine held off a quietly confident Three Imaginary Boys to take their overall lead to +591 points. The scores on the doors:
The Cure 593 - 619 The Sisters
Differential +26 The Sisters
The Yellow beer tent Jersey remains in deepest darkest Germany with Johhny Rev 7.0’s FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921
And this week’s resounds for BlueHughes’ Team WMS for their 89 point haul.
Back to a regular GW this weekend. Will we put our faith in Leicester’s front line? Will Palace slow Chelski’s claim to the silverware? Will we see Burnley or QPR on Match of The Day next season? Let’s start plotting & planning for GW 35 taking place over at we-are-not-a-goth-band land.
Thanks again everyone who chimed in & see you all on the other side soon.
