Dontcha just love midweek games? Right then, what happened then? Arsenal, who failed to get an Oscar nod for The Sanchez Saga, travelled to Swansea & despite reports of Giroud signing for Chelski, he was on the bench looking slightly puzzled. But, in what could be his chin’s last game for the Gunners, Swansea delivered a shock win to take them out of the drop zone. At Wet Spam, a rare Tekkers goal gave Palace the lead, only for them to throw it away as the Spammers converted a 43rd minute penalty. Liverpool, having had a bit of a ‘mare of late, put in a workman-like performance at Huddersfield to take a comfortable 3 goal win, putting them in 4th. With transfer deadline day taking up a lot of attention, there were still games to be played. Chelsea, having got shot of their only fit out & out forward, hosted Bournemouth & the Cherries handed the blues their first defeat in 9 games leaving the home side languishing in 4th place. Meanwhile, Everton’s new lad, Walcott netted a brace against Leicester who had Mahrez having a hissy fit & going AWOL before the match. The Toon’s new boy, Kenedy added some much needed spark but Burnley managed to grab a late equaliser in a match where the crown showed their (grammar-free) feelings at Mike Ashley’s handling of the club. Brighton looked to be cruising at St Mary’s until Jack Stephens made it “even Stephens” in the 65th minute & Wet Broom had an ambulance on standby as they brought loan signing Sturridge on against Citeh. But with 74% possession & 10 shots on target, there was only one team that was ever going to win this. Stoke & Watford saw out a scrappy, goalless game which at least lifted the Potters out of the drop zone & in the big game at Wembley, it took Spurs 11 seconds to take the lead against Untidy, although Kane did appear to encroach on the Untidy half before the kick off was taken. The victory was wrapped up thanks to Phil Jones’ brilliant finish, albeit in his own net. The result leaves ManUre 15 points behind city rivals…well..Citeh. But JoMo at least managed to not blame the result on his dog…..yet.
In FPL land I think we were all in a spin over who was signing who & who the heck were these players being signed, but we soldiered on. In the classic it was a relatively low scoring week but the IGM returned to winning ways with 553 points , cutting the BB&S’ lead down to just 287 points Nikolas Vitus Lagartija’s Damage Dunfermline is keeping the

Stays with Dead Men Walking who hold top spot on account of their overall score. Let’s see the standings shall we?
With the transfer merry-go-round finally stopped, we retreat to the shed to make sure we don’t get the wrong tattoos & replica shirts & “modify” some calendars. Although Arsenal were clever & made theirs 2018-ready. ….well, except for August & December The prices of the noobs seem to be in already & now we need to work on chants for various unpronouncables. That’s all for now. Thanks for dropping by & playing once again & now I hand you over to the charming emilystrange for GW26. So sober up people! She’s a teacher you know.
