GW17 Deadline Friday 1st January 16.00

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.

Welcome to the first GW of 2021. Bit hectic lately with 357930760 GWs over Christmas, but apart from some Covid delayed games we may be back on track. No idea yet is some games will actually get played this weekend. FPL was not a happy place in the last few days!
Fixtures are:

Friday 1 January 2021

Everton 17:30 West HamQuite looking forward ot this one, oddly

Monday 4 January 2021
Southampton 20:00 Liverpool Come on, Liverpool. You know you want to.

Look to your defences, as it's a bit nippy for the fast lads up front. Vardy will freeze and snap in half if he stands still too long.

It is my sad duty at this point to say that we have lost one of the game's great names - Tommy Docherty has died at the age of 92, following a long illness. RIP, and as always thoughts are with his family.


Happy New 2nd Half Of The Season to you all xxxxx

Sheff U looking for first win of the season. Odds at 150:1. Looks like easy money :)

Meanwhile up in the wrong part of Merseyside we face our bogey team. Always lose no matter what. #COYI

I remember being at Anfield (I assume the right part of Merseyside) for the Un*ted match just after Tommy Doc was caught with his physio's wife. He got dog's abuse game from a packed Kop (26,000 in those standing days).

Edit - A Mancunian 'friend' has texted to advise that the only decent part of Merseyside is deep in the middle of the river lol

Fuq me that gunners game looked miserable. There are times I very much miss my homeland. And there are times, usually after watching football this time of year, I’m really glad to be living somewhere with mild winters
