Here are the weeks. Just one left to pick – see if you can guess who!
This Weeks Comments
AM: No time for idle chat this week. Ryder Cup looming so gotta get to bed, up early – first tee time UK time is 07:10. Go Europe. 🙂
Looks like Europe got up late on the first day. Here’s hoping it’s a friendly affair as I’m a bit tired of it ending up like a Duncan Ferguson era Merseyside derby.
BB: “I did enjoy the look that Mourinho gave Pogba at the training ground. I think that there may be a little bit of resentment setting in with regard to their relationship. ”
I know you like to rewrite song lyrics so here we go trying with Never Tear Us Apart (INXS):
What you know is true
Don’t have to tell you
I drop you as vice-captain
You were there
Two egos collided
And our looks could tear us apart”
Pretty crappy effort.
ME: I can’t find Spuds v Watford in the fixtures!
Well since our 2nd team lost to your 1st and 1/2 team in the Milk Cup we won’t be meeting again in that competition.
ME: Spuds must show a really positive attitude and get a good result! Please….
Getting desperate.. where are your team playing their next game? Milton Keynes again?
KMFE: Trying an experiment this week picking with odds quoted by the newly-legal sports books in NJ and other states… Let’s see how right they are…
Not a bad strategy. Betwin.com finished quite well last year as I tracked them week over week! Good luck – if it works you could automate this!
For those that don’t know when we were in NY we saw loads of these posters as they just made gambling on sports legal in the USA (kind of).
AA: Insert witty, informed-sounding comment about strikers and loaned players, criticism of managers and tut tuts about that one player who can’t seem to keep from falling apart at exactly the wrong moment. Followed up by slightly off-colour inside joke
Looks like Aaron Ramsey’s contract renewal has hit a snag and he may go on a free transfer at the end of the year. He could go on loan like Wilshere last year in order to gain regular first team injuries as Unai Emery doesn’t seem to understand he’s the critical link man. In other news, Chelsea released their tactics recently not realizing that they have an infinite loop.
And I think I’ve discovered what’s wrong with Sanchez!
The inspiration for this is the following amusing video….not quite Fenton but not bad.
The following is how long I spent making my picks this week:
