So where are we with Week 27? How about Week 31? What about Week 33? I barely know either so let me post the final predictions and the current standings.
Congratulations to LJ and KMFE!
Sorry for the delay in getting results have been distracted by lots of things including
Anyway, I’ve been behind for a long time so need to play catch up. I’m in Fergie “Steve Bruce against Wednesday” Time!
Seemingly an age ago there was a week 27 and the last game was finally played and Chelsea beat Huddersfield. Pretty sure that game didn’t change any of the outcomes.
There were some other games here – notably Spuds hosting Crystal Palace at their new stadium and Brighton managing to lose at home to Cardiff giving the Welsh a little hope especially with an easy trip to Anfield coming up!
Looks like all the games were played! Even wilder, it looks like LJ got a win in there.
Looks like all these games were played and well…wouldn’t you know it…KMFE out of nowhere slams down victory so bit that 2nd place was a massive 5 points back- the same total that a JE picked! And who is this SC1?
This week we welcomed back LS and depending on whether you are a glass half-full or a glass half-empty he presented us with the perfect opportunity to take a laugh at his score or prevented us from having another laugh at LJ’s expense!
Prognosticator of the Week AB wins this week because he has the fortune of the letter A coming before J in a UK/US alphabetical sorting order.
This mad rush of games combined with a hectic work schedule make keeping this site up to date more difficult than normal. It also means that I’m probably not as humourous as I would like to be. Here’s a tester joke to see how that theory goes:
Wouldn’t it be funny if Antonio Valencia had played for Valencia, David Villa had played for Aston Villa, and Danny Shittu had played for Spurs?
Congrats to JE but given how much he claims to know about football (a lot) he should be finishing lower like LJ 🙂 Of course he claims he’s just guessing every week but I know for a fact that you all pore over the stats and make proper educated and calculated projections.
Special Note for LJ: I know I said I would pick Hornets 3-0 over the mighty reds but I’m no fool!
This is one of those annoying Rounds of football that seems to stretch on-and-on. The Cityzens defeated the Toffeemen 2-0 over 2 weeks ago and the Chelsea game is still outstanding. Nonetheless I wanted to update the weekly picks and standing.
JE: ” Away this weekend so fingers crossed that we all win again in the family (apart from Tottenham and arsenal). So just me and you then really!! I hope we don’t lose to Liverpool. Would hate that…..” Klopp may rather have been at “Thriller” than watching this “thriller”
KMFE: “Mark this day down in the annals of history: I AM ACTIVELY GOING FOR MANCHESTER UNITED. “ Marked!
BE: ” As I had Man City, Arsenal, Watford and Spurs all down for a win, I thought I had better do the same for Man Utd and hope de Gea is in form” Seems that DDG didn’t need to be in form.
ME: “Need spurs to win!” Tough to keep winning. I am slowly not hating the new offside rule but I hate the new offside rule. How you can stand in the six-yard box by the goalie and not interfere with play is beyond me. I think it’s time someone employed the Inzaghi style of play and just always stands offside preventing that high-line defense. I’m sure Poch is working on it.
That lad must have been born offside.
Sir Alex Ferguson
ME: “Chelsea may or may not turn up… “ I’m guessing not!
Weekly Summary Watford had a good week with Deulofeu scoring the team’s first ever hat-trick in the Premier League. To put into perspective how good that it is, that’s 9% of Aguero’s total!
This weeks Watford survival gauge looks considerably better!
Coca-Cola, Rumbelows, Littlewoods, Milk Carabao Cup Final
Today’s big game was the EFL final between Chelsea and Man Citeh. We expected goals. we got none. We expected Sterling to choke, he didn’t. But nothing was as strange as the ending of an otherwise boring game.
Watford are now just a few points from safety as this random chart shows.
Looks like this was a good week for some. Three exacts for BE moved her well to the top of the table…..however, some people like JE seemed to lose his way but he doesn’t care because Man U keep winning!
