GW22 - Deadline Friday 10th January 19.00 PM

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

An early start this week, FA and Carabao Cups s**t things round, no doubt.

Friday 10th January

Sheffield Utd 20:00 West Ham I feel that this should be a draw but am willing to be shocked.
UK - Sky Sports

Saturday 11 January

Crystal Palace 12:30 Arsenal Oh come on, Palace
UK - BT Sport

Chelsea 15:00 Burnley Oh come on, Burnley
Everton 15:00 Brighton This one WILL be a draw.
Leicester 15:00 Southampton Vardy's back, so that's the end of the Saints.
Man Utd 15:00 Norwich Interesting...
Wolves 15:00 Newcastle Maybe Newcastle need to do something, but maybe not today.
Spurs 17:30 Liverpool I fear that Spurs will not come on, and I also fear that I do not really care. And KAne won't be back until April.
UK - Sky Sports

Sunday 12 January

Bournemouth 14:00 Watford Will Watford forge on?
UK - Sky Sports

Aston Villa 16:30 Man City I'm not fond of Villa

To your teams! As usual, check injuries, rotations, general guesswork and the leaves in the bottom of your cups.

GO!

United have a defender shortage right now. So maybe we'll see this chap getting more game time

Not gonna lie. It was a complete gamble. As with anything Guardiola has anything to do with.
But it paid off this time.
Now I have to ship him out I guess
:lol:

Steve, who were you advocating game-time for? The advertising hoarding? Nice idea, that's a beauty tackle on the hapless bloke in red.

Daren't even look at this GW, been internetless for best part of a week so this week's squad was last week's, and I seem to remember that being not so good. Ah well, one amongst many irritations of being without internet.

Aww cheers Boss, for the information and the positive spin :wink: pretty certain there'll be a red arrow next to that position but to be expected given the circs. Plan A had been to ship a coupla Leicester I think, and James who I just have no idea what he's doing in my squad, bless him. Might as well be Jones. At least I should have 2 transfers waiting patiently for me this week.

Just checked in, 53 points from an absent week, I'll take that :) very relieved to see I'd sold Kane, was pretty sure he was still in my squad. Then again the game weeks / years have all started to blend into one amorphous blob of injuries and mis-timed squad-tinkers.

Never mind eh, roll on this weekend when finally we get to see Liverpool temporarily nudged off their reacquired perch. Mebeez. Mebeez not.

Several calculations went to VAR this week, and the league outcomes were seriously affected by a cat. That's all we're saying.

Sheffield Utd 20:00 West Ham It was nearly a draw!

Crystal Palace 12:30 Arsenal A draw, I'll accept. Steve won't
Chelsea 15:00 Burnley Burnley didn't, but Abraham scored
Everton 15:00 Brighton See, very nearly a draw again. I'm getting good at this.
Leicester 15:00 Southampton Vardy was back, but Ings is having a jolly good time, isn't he?
Man Utd 15:00 Norwich Not looking. Isn't Rashford crocked now, anyway?
Wolves 15:00 Newcastle There. A draw. I told you there'd be one. And Wolves woz robbed in the FA cup.
Spurs 17:30 Liverpool Just surprised that there was only one goal in it.
Bournemouth 14:00 Watford Watford did forge! Bournemouth having a shocker.

Aston Villa 16:30 Man City The Aguero show! And De Bruyne, Mahrez, Da Silva and Jesus one as well. Nyland actually made 5 saves. Aguero got 90 bonus marks. 90.

All a bit exciting this week, though lower key than some. Here are the tables then - IGM are still in the lead but EIB took the week.

Clash Athletic are sleeping in that Yellow Jersey still, so I hope there's deodorant :lol:

Image

The Big Shout Out belongs to Master Chan Elf again, with 87 whoppers

Image

Over in the H2H, IGM again still top, but drew the week with EIB. :notworthy:

Image

and Hollowstar keep the Crown.

Over to the Shed then, as you've eaten all the Greggs stuff we have. Off you pop!

The Shed is open & we have hot dogs this week :)

Still at this late stage I am debating who gets the Alice band.

I should consult the cats. They are usually so helpful....
Cheers.
