Yay! International break. Don’t you just love it? Ugh!
GW7’s early bird game & Harry (I can’t stop scoring) Kane took just 9 minutes to open the goalvalanche, as Spurs ended Huddersfield’s undefeated home run. Down by the sea, Bournemouth held Leicester to a goalless draw &, in perhaps the biggest surprise of the day, Mourane Foullini scored twice as the Palace store put yet another hold on the “I Was There” shirts & set Phil Neville into full photoshop mode The tallest man on earth, Peter Crouch, reminded Southgate that he hasn’t retired yet, snatching an 85th minute winner for the Potters. Everyone questioned Bilic’s reasoning from bringing on Sakho….until he scored a 90th minute winner & on the subject of late goals, 95th minute drama at the Hawthorns denied West Brom all 3 points. In the late game, in-form Chelski striker, Morata, made an early exit with a tight hamstring & weeping from thousands of FPL managers who had replaced Aguero with the Spaniard could be heard from space….allegedly. But it wasn’t the goal fest that Pep’s team were used to & a lone goal from Kevin The Brain was the only thing to separate the teams in a game slightly overshadowed by Kyle Walker’s socks. Brighton, who are adamant their mascot looks like a seagull visited the Emirates where Monorail had his fearsome shooting boots on for the first time in 4 1/2 years. Iwobi added number 2 in the second half as the Gunners close in on their traditional 4th place. Everton started with Rooney on the bench so the starting 11 did their best to pay tribute, ballooning shot after shot off target. The only goal of the game went to Burnley’s Hendrick who found a hole in the defence big enough to drive a monster truck through. The final match of the week at St James’ Park, & Liverpool look to be in need of shooting practice having 17 shots with just 2 on target. But one of those was a peach from Coutinho. However, the Reds defence…..err two guys stood furthest back were undone again allowing Joselu to sneak an equaliser forcing Klopp to do his best at containing his blowing top. Meanwhile, the guy doing the subtitles on Match Of The Day went & expressed his own opinion. & let’s just take another look at Kyle Walker’s socks.
So, on with the show. With 612 points the classic GW was won by the EIB by 75 points to close in on the BB&S’ overall lead as they top the pile on 3871 points The
returns to Unreal Madrid which will no doubt make his old man proud again. This week’s
is for altendalton ’s Deep Green Sea Utd with a solid 75 points The table stands like this
In H2H land it was the IGM who were victorious on 18 points & now leading the pack on 126 overall. As for that big ol’ shiny
Mine! MINE I tells yer & the table…
So the shed smells of victory. Well, we think it’s victory. It could be an open can of food or something, but we can’t find it anywhere. The general vibe has been so upbeat that gongoro73 even started playing Wild Mood Swings on the new entertainment system, although we suspect alcohol may have been involved. So now we wait with baited breath (& several crossed fingers) that our little flowers don’t go & get broken on international duty. Well, those that aren’t already broken anyhow. After that, it’s over to emilystrange who will be our charming host for GW8………. & there had better be cakes missy Well played & thanks everyone for dropping in . See you in 2 weeks
