Week 34 – Double Game Week

If you know anything about Fantasy Football you will know that this week is a double game week meaning that there are a run of close games.

Please pick for Tuesday while you’re here on the site.

Lazy this week because I went out for Ramen and a Show (both pretty decent).  Will post all the actual predictions this weekend.   Will try to think of an amusing sub-plot.  Right now?  I’m yawning and yearning for sleep…… so here’s a quick stream-of-consciousness.

Weekly Comments

AM:Let’s give this runaway train a little more momentum! So looking forward to the first LWGC v KGC match in June & sharing a beer with ME!. . . . :-)”
There’s no runaway train in the head-to-head match up between the two of you.  I think whoever wins should buy the other their own beer.  Here’s how things stand right now at a game level.

Head to Head

BE: “Some pretty unexpected results in Europe as well! It’s not that we are bad at trying to predict the results, it’s just that the teams don’t play to their potential or don’t put their best team out, or the referees make a mistake, or someone gets sent off or injured……..”
This sounds like the comment from someone losing and not someone winning!  Or an Arsenal fan…or even bit Jose-ish.  I find the issue is that teams tend to allow too many goals in the last minutes ruining perfect scores.  I’m 100% certain I would be winning if games ended at 88 mins.

KMFE: “asdb c asawrfxkhas sdaalsdc hcoasdanzazz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz”
Someone went out late to see OMD and was barely alive when entering their picks!  Let’s see how you do….

LJ: “Chelski will record a flurry of draws in the business end of the season.”
Maybe but who’s going to win the CL?  Liverpool to slay Roma and defeat the Germans in the final? Slay Roma  and have Salah outperform Ronaldo?

I’m taking Madrid over Liverpool 3-1 in the final though I’m hoping for a Liverpool win.   I would love to be in Trafford (just outside of Manchester) if Citeh won the league, Liverpool won CL.  Of course the FA Cup matters.

ME: “I fully expect Man Pretty to play their socks off… hoping Spurs can withstand and score a couple of breakaway goals.”
I do prefer JE’s name for Citeh… and I should note that if they play their socks off it’s unlikely that Spurs will win so bit of a wild-card pick.

ME: “United and Liverpool should dominate if they have proper teams on the field! ”
Sounding a lot like BE… are you copying again?  Better watch it or AM will accuse you two of match-fixing or tampering.

AB: “Who ate all the pies?”
I don’t remember when you said that as it was a few weeks back…. but don’t go eating pies on the TV or you’ll get in serious trouble!

Quick Picks

Let’s hope we all do better this week!  I don’t remember what I picked so I’m not sure how my analysis will impact my scores and how it will impact teams so that they don’t play to their potential or don’t put their best team out, or the referees make a mistake, or someone gets sent off or injured…

Burnley V Leicester City
Both teams are safe.  Burnley has not been the defensive team they were earlier in the year but Mahrez on a two game drought and Vardy only shows up against top tier teams… Burnley is in 7th??!?  Vardy with a brace in a non-winning cause.

Crystal Palace V Brighton & Hove Albion
CP have been doing well without results so at home they should win.  But you know what they say about teams that should win?  Sometimes they don’t play to their potential or the referees make mistakes.   The most likely mistake is Zaha getting a penalty he doesn’t deserve… so Palace take it.

Huddersfield Town V Watford
Everyone keeps saying Watford are safe but they aren’t.  Watford will keep this tight looking for one more important point.  In the 95th minute the Terriers will score.

Liverpool V Bournemouth
Who knows?  Salah probably won’t play… after an exciting week in Europe… a lack-luster result is due.

Manchester United V West Bromwich Albion
WBA are doing everything they can to avoid playing Wolves next year.  Lambs to the slaughter.  A win here and a Citeh loss and we’re looking at a 7point gap… exciting end to the season?

Newcastle United V Arsenal
The only reason anyone cares about this game is to see if Aubameyang scores… he won’t but Wellbeck is Wellgood.

Southampton V Chelsea
Flurry of draws.  I’m tired and what LJ said sounds like the words of a professional prognosticator.  How can he or I get Mark Lawrenson’s job?

Swansea City V Everton
Sam Allardyce needs to go.  Swansea have Jose Junior and appear to be heading to safety.

Tottenham Hotspur V Manchester City
Symbolically speaking: Kane (Cain/Cane) is evil.  Jesus is good.  Citeh win!
Normally speaking: Kane at home and Citeh on the ropes. CIteh win!
You’re a Citeh fan called KMFE: Citeh Win!
You’re a Spurs fan called ME: Spurs Win!
Toss a coin.

West Ham United V Stoke City
Despite my desire to see the Hammers go down…they aren’t.
