This was a high scoring week (for some of us). Things were looking close on Saturday but a crazy set of Sunday results moved BE to the top of the pack.
There was a fairly big score this week….let’s see if you can guess what it was without looking.
Maybe that wasn’t enough of a clue. Maybe this is….
Twenty one points! This is the highest score of the year and a high water mark for everyone to shoot for. It is a lot but I should still point out that this is still four points short of the ridiculous total put up by KMFE last year that stands as the record since we started making picks 3 years or so ago.
As mentioned, last year 25 points put KMFE to the top of the overall charts – a position from which she slowly fell. This year, 21 points has put BE firmly at the top of the charts but we’ve been here before. It is from the top last year at the half-way point of the season that she started the magnificent slide from first to last suffering the kind of second half collapse we would expect from Watford. So don’t give up hope if you find yourself last Livi. My advice: Stop picking against Liverpool!
Looks to me like the new members [LS, AB] are struggling while the experienced players [BE,JCE,ME,JE] are hanging out at the top. LJ is an experienced player who continues to lose and live by his mantra “I think knowing football is actually a hindrance”.
Next week a quick summary of who these initialisms actually are!
