GW32 kicked off with the early match between Spurs, who are hoping to avoid another St Totteringham’s Day, & an inconsistent Watford. I say “match”, I mean humbling, as Spurs hammered 4 past Gomes in 54 minutes to close the gap on Chelski (briefly). Citeh took Hull to task at home, despite Clownio Bravo getting bored in the 85th, conceding his 7th goal from 7 on target shots he’s faced this season. Still, at least he’s good with his feet eh Pep? Liverpool went to Stoke without an away win this season & looked to be on course for another defeat until Klopp realised he had his 2 best players on the bench. Coutinho levelled & Firmino (mercifully free of that man-bun) hit a stunner to take all 3 points. Fraser Forster kept West Brom at bay as Southampton’s Clasie finally scored a goal that sparked a tidal wave of social media punnery. A single West Ham goal left Swansea still 2 points from safety & kept the Olympic stadium full until at least the 80th minute while Boro & Burnley ended goalless. In the late kick off at the seaside Chelski swept past Bournemouth to re-establish a 7 point lead at the top. Sunday saw Untidy pop into the Stadium Of Light looking to avoid yet another draw. & they did as a 10 man Sunderland went down 0-3 in a game where Shaw was subbed in the second half as he was too far away to hear JoMo’s instructions. Afterwards, Moyes in no way focused on the ref’s decsions. Not one bit. Leicester’s winning streak was brought to a halt after a first half goal-valanche that saw 3 in the first 10 minutes including one on 15 seconds. But the second half was less thrilling as the Foxes bided their time & played safe ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Madrid. Last match of the GW came from Selhurst Park as the Eagles continue their quest for safety against Arsenal. And continue they did with a 3-0 victory, although Arsenal will probably be aggrieved not have been awarded a penalty when Sakho appeared to wrestle Giroud to the ground in the area midway through the second half.
But enough with the facts eh? The real thing also drew to a close & it was the EIB who prevailed by 45 points to push them 300 ahead overall. But clinging to that yet again is Nikolas Vitus Lagartija ’s Damage Dunfermline who has probably dyed it black by now. This week’s , with a net score (after transfers) of 88 points is…..hey! it’s my Unstuck Forest mob The table..
The H2H was nicked by a mere 4 points as the EIB go 24 ahead overall Aaaaand still looking regal in the is Nikolas Vitus Lagartija ’s Damage Dunfermline once more, sending us mortals into severe crown envy. Latest table …..
Back in the shed we are trying to work out how to turn our new water sprinkler off before we end up with something we may need to stock with fish. Apparently bending the hose like they do in cartoons doesn’t work for very long. But other than that, we’re settled in for a movie marathon as @mort ’s latest batch of blu rays has landed . We are, however, totally out of biscuits after the IGM (well emilystrange actually ) polished them all off in under 15 minutes except for the pink wafer fingers, which no-one seems to want to even open. Thanks everyone for dropping by & for playing again this week So as we fire up Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them we’ll hand over the controls & see you all on the dark side for GW 33.
