Arsenal’s away trip added another nail to Moyes’ coffin that not even Defoe’s claw hammer could pull out but North London rivals, Spurs lost ground after being held to a draw at home to Leicester. Watford, with 22 shots, had a “cow’s erse/ banjo” day saved by an own goal as Bournemouth, still on a high from last week’s goal-fest succumbed to Boro. Pep’s hairdryer session after last week resulted in a 4 goal thumping of West Brom as Aguero & Gundogan gave a master-class in attacking (take note ahead of Tuesday Pep). Meanwhile, at Old Trafford, Jose was the talking point after he was sent to the stands at half time to watch “his” Manc Untidy being held by the might of ….Burnley. Luckily for him though, social media decided to direct its ire at Abracadabravic. Then off to Fortress Selhurst. Could Palace stop Klopp? No. Yes. No. Yes. No. Hell no. Sunday saw the Toffees take West Ham to task, but the main topic of discussion was Adrian's orange tights. We suspect he was colour co-ordinating with the winter ball……or he lost a bet. Meanwhile, on the South coast, the Saints hosted Chelski & even though they made a better fist of it than Untidy did last week, they were completely undone by Hazard & Costa that took the blues into the top 4. On Monday, at the implausibly catchily named Bet365 stadium Stoke made it 3 wins on the trot as Swansea saw former striker, Wilfried (will he or won’t he?) Bony grab a brace against Bradley’s new charges.
Recovering from a narrow defeat last week, the IGM swept to a comfortable win with BB&S taking second & EIB in third Nikolas Vitus Lagartija’s Damage Dunfermline get comfy in the for another week while the rings out loud & proud for eastmidswhizzkid’s Eastmids Whizzkids landing a whopping 88 points. Current overall standings are:
The H2H shows a similar story, with the IGM taking the spoils again, leaving BB&S & EIB in joint second for the week. Nikolas Vitus Lagartija’s Damage Dunfermline can put the FedEx box away, as the is staying put once again.
The table look like this…
So it’s back to the shed for a huddle. Primarily because it’s flipping cold in there. paulwUK has a Keynote presentation for us with lots of stats and has unplugged the heater to plug in the projector. We even had to run an extension cable to next door to keep the beer fridge running… priorities I called Ranieri, as Leicester didn’t manage a clean sheet, so hopefully their pizzas are on the way.
& so we now kick the ball over the fence & yell, “INCOMING!” to MyHeartland & over to emilystrange for the GW 11 thread.
Thanks everyone for popping by & for playing once again.
