Some tough games & some points to prove this GW & another avalanche of goals.
Untidy, fresh of the back of 3 defeats in a row, turned up the heat as they hosted Leicester & dispatched them in some style. Ruggy was left out of the starting line-up, but JoMo eventually put him on so he could finish his first half conversation with Carrick. After the game, Mourinho praised him as his main man. His go-to guy when he needs someone to collect the balls after the match. Klopp’s red army dismantled a 10 man Hull who had Tickle Me Elmohamady dismissed for showing off his goal keeping prowess as noisy neighbours, Everton, took a doomed trip to the seaside that ended their winning start to the season. A Kane-less Spurs added to Middlesbrough’s woes as Son really showed he wants to keep his place in the team and Stoke’s heart was smashed to pieces when Rondon levelled for the Baggies at the bet365. Little Jermain Defoe gave Sunderland a 2 goal lead over Palace, at which point the Eagles said a collective, “Screw this”, to come back & take it in the last minute of stoppage time. Swansea gave City a jolt, wiping out their lead 4 minutes after Aguero’s opener & holding them until a 65th Aguero minute penalty with the icing on the cake provided by Sterling to add a third to maintain Pep’s 100% start. Chelski, still smarting from last week’s defeat to Liverpool, went to the Emirates….& then promptly wished they hadn’t. A back pass not even worthy of my cat from Cahill let Sanchez in & from there on it was all one way traffic. The Blues fans couldn’t even leave early, as the trusty Chelski bus had already departed. Sunday’s match saw West Ham staking a claim on having the nicest stadium in the Championship next season with Charlie Austin undoing the Irons’ defence, scoring one & assisting another. With his right dick apparently. Wrapping up the fixtures, we travelled to a soggy Turf Moor as Watford, brimming with confidence after brushing Untidy aside last week, decided to take the evening off. The 9th most transferred in player of the week (Capoue) failed to live up to his reputation & the Hornets’ sting was subdued by Burnley who strong-armed their way to a 2 goal victory.
Looking to Fantasy-land, a pretty high scoring week was had by many as teams jostle for top spot. But the spoils this GW were taken by the EIB, who snatched the win by 26 points, taking them to second in the table behind the IGM but the BB&S are hot on their heels in third. The table stands thus..
over to Scotland to keep him warm while writing the latest entry to his blog
The this week goes to @mort ’s Zapisz Zity with a very healthy 87 points to ignite their march up the table.
After a disappointing week last time out the EIB came close, but couldn’t quite stop the IGM taking the week by 3 points with BB&S 9 further back in third. & as with the Yellow Jersey,Nikolas Vitus Lagartija ’s Damage Dunfermline also take delivery of the which should save on postage
Table stands as follows…
So it’s to the shed where the home brew should be almost ready to crack open. @mort ’s offered to DJ this week, so we’ve had to back a truck full of records up to the side of the shed & take the window out so he can get to it all. Hope he’s got some Kool & The Gang in there While you all get your best frocks on, I’ll try to move the bean bags from last week so we have space to shake a tail feather
Thanks to everyone who came & well played everyone once again. Over to you Mav787 & see you all on MyHeartland for GW7 which kicks off on Friday.

Cannae believe I'm top of the league(s)! The Pars won on Saturday too :-) after five successive defeats so my lucky week. Am hoping that the shirt is slightly baggier than last year as I appear to have put on a couple of kilos since I last topped the league over a year ago. And it will be the first time I've ever worn a shirt with a Mission logo on! (Thanks for the plug for my blog, too Steve - there'll be a new post about a previously unknown 1983 TSOM gig tomorrow, hopefully)
