subs are still happening like they did, but it's odd that their points aren't being shown on the team page. if you click on them you can see what they've got, but that's no help. hopefully it'll sort itself out tonight
& we’re off to a flyer. On Friday night Norwich were welcomed to the premier league by a rampant Liverpool in a 4-1 drubbing prompting possible regrets on getting promoted. On Saturday, & not to be outdone, Citeh decided being 1 up at half time against Wet Spam wasn’t looking good. So they enabled the turbo & proceeded to eviscerate the spammers 0-5 with Sterling taking home the match ball. But at least the Wet Spam carpet was immaculately hoovered. At the Vitality, Bournemouth looked to be on course to make the Blades’ return to the top flight a miserable one until the 88th minute when Billy Sharp, having been on for just 6 minutes, bundled in an equaliser to snatch a late draw & a point. Burnley, without the distraction of European footy this season saw off a sorry looking Southampton at Turf Moor while title favourites, Palace hosted Everton in a game that showed off both teams’ defensive upgrades over the summer in a goalless draw despite the toffees being down to 10 men thanks to record store entrepreneur , Jon Moss issuing a second yellow to Schneiderlin. That lot from the south coast pleased their new gaffer as they cruised to a 0-3 win away to Watford which puts them in a champion’s league spot. In the late game, Spurs had to come from a goal down against Villa with Harry Kane shaking off the August jinx & nabbing a brace. Of the three Sunday games, Leicester v Wolves dished up 3 (three) shots on target & a goal that VAR chalked off due to a handball. Arsenal, having actually bought some promising players over the summer made a meal of their victory over Newcastle with a well taken goal from a terrific pass as Maitland-Niles & Aubrey Meringue linked up beautifully. Wrapping up the weekend, OGS’ youngsters took on Lampard’s youngsters & duly took the Europa League champions apart on Lampard’s PL managerial debut slashing the odds on him being fired first this season to 10/1.
& in the first FPL GW, we saw some big scores as managers with Sterling reaped the rewards. It could have been even more of a bonanza if anyone had actually given him the Alice band. In the end, as with all first GWs, one player took the
As the IGM’s Ederson Volleys racked up the first ton of the season on 103 points to top both classic & H2H tables. But there is a long way to go yet, so it’s all to play for The tables at this early stage
& now it’s back to the shed where we shall discuss how to close the gap, who to pick for the weekend & who has the best seagull gifs & memes. Thanks for stopping by this week & please take all your plastic home with you to dispose of responsibly. Over to emilystrange who has a big smile on her face with the IGM on top….this week. Hope to see some of you on HL for GW2
