(Guardian)   With no lunchtime games it's a later start for the weekend Fark EPL thread. Can Man City bounce back from European disappointment, will Man Utd come back again from a goal down to win and can Chelsea have an entire weekend without controversy?   (guardian.co.uk) divider line 138

Yes, United should win cleanly, and it's Chelsea so probably not.

Happy Remembrance Day everyone.

Hello.
 
2012-11-10 10:06:03 AM  
On vacation so I won't be able to watch much. But come on United! I want Arsenal to lose, but I have my insurance and banker on this match.

Watchin the England Rugby game before i hunt for a Reading vs Norwich stream.

Fun fact more police are out in Norwich for the english defense league (and counter) march today than for a normal football match.

Why can't we defend set pieces?

FFPL Report - Round 10

Ouch!

Week 10 saw carnage as surprising results came in through the card. Plenty of shell-shocked Farkers this week in which no fewer than 12 players scored negatively and a good number posted returns of between 0-20 pts. In short, this was a good week to forget to post your predictions.

Moving into top spot is Cognitive_Displaysia, tied with, but placed ahead of me on alphabetical ordering [or is it weeks score?] after a 55 pt boost. Elguepardo and Mr_H stay in 3rd and 4th and nobiology breaks into the top 10, making it 30% Toon. At the bottom, MitchCumstein1 doubled his score in one week! Cough. Worldwide, 200 people are doing worse than you Mitch.

Median player is Desertgeek. He is in 29346/72531 globally, meaning the FFPL median is substantially better than the global median.

Top scorer this week was kcostell, with 120 - a score that has been very much par in other weeks. Only Obamartins posted in three figures as well. At the other end of the spectrum, DesertMoloch and BillyChrystalMethLab both went down 90, learning how much having your banker chip bite you can hurt.

Highest climber of the week was kcostell, up 11 over lost_limey and nobiology on 6 places. A pair of Arsenal supporters - Langston and DJBigbird dropped 8 and 9 places respectively and Chattanooga_FC also went down 9.

Norfolkingchance clings onto Page 1 by his bloody fingernails, and is joined by desertgeek and tom_servo_bit_me. I repeat - tom_servo_bit_me is now on Page 1!

Dropping into the oubliette of Page 2 we have Chattanooga_FC and jpo2269.

The 20 pt Banker Bonus club is down to 2 - StRalphtheLiar and bjmichel. Only Obamartins has a BB in double figures otherwise and 38 players have none at all - a great number undone by Spurs losing to Tottenham.

Heh. Nice recovery.

Yeah, Arsenal already 2 up on Fulham. Pretty sure I had this one 2-2, so I'd really like yet another capitulation from the Gunners here.

Fulham. Just sloppy defense.

Arsenal looks OK so far. Fulham isn't even playing...

That's your fault! ;)

Are you ahead of me on alphabetic order, or is it something else? I note Norfolkingchance ranked ahead of Chattanooga_FC.

Which is funny because I actually did forget to post predictions and so only had them for Sunday's matches.

Could have been weekly score.

Look Arsenal and Fulham, can you stop now. No more going into the other teams half OK? I need those 30 points

Wish I'd been the same. Would have put me on +70.

Kacaniklic!!!! 2-2!
 
2012-11-10 10:42:18 AM  
Bullshiat card there. Looked like nothing but a stiff breeze blew Cazorla over.

jeez louse!

Mannone should have that one. Sigh.
 
2012-11-10 10:43:33 AM  
And that's two. Great job failing again Arsenal. Now everyone park the bus.
 
2012-11-10 10:48:13 AM  
Nice finish from Adam Johnson.
 
2012-11-10 10:59:44 AM  
I almost switched away from Arsenal at 2-0, but, you know ... it's Arsenal. I don't even think it's a good game. Neither keeper has made a save of note.

I don't understand this theory of putting insurance and banker on the same game. I already need about six insurance chips every week without wasting it on the result I'm most sure of.

Prevents you from going -20/-30 in the hole if you get it wrong.
 
2012-11-10 11:25:44 AM  
So far 2 perfects and a result in the works.
 
2012-11-10 11:26:19 AM  
And the self-destruction begins.
 
2012-11-10 11:26:58 AM  
Time to say hello to the 2nd page again. Lots of -10 coming up
 
2012-11-10 11:27:21 AM  
And the self-destruction begins. match now gets interesting.

FTFM
 
2012-11-10 11:28:22 AM  
Jebus, I leave the room for 2 minutes and suddenly its 3-3. What the fark?
 
2012-11-10 11:34:37 AM  
So much for the Steve Bould influence on the defense. They're as sieve-like as I've ever seen
 
2012-11-10 11:36:41 AM  
And Everton give me one more result. Need Norwich and Swans to score to put me in the positives.

You do remember last season? At least you wern't spanked like a Tory MP against Man U

Come on Everton, 2-1. just get one more!

Yes I remember last season. Just because w haven't given up 8, doesn't mean the D is anything other than below average
 
2012-11-10 11:52:18 AM  
Wow. Way to blow that Phil Dowd.
 
2012-11-10 11:53:51 AM  
Well that was a fun finish.

Terrible terrible call washed away by a blocked PK

"Ball don't lie," I guess.
 
2012-11-10 11:54:00 AM  
LOL ARTETA.

Still a correct draw for me there at the Emirates.
 
2012-11-10 11:59:02 AM  
Had my banker on the stoke game and got the result and score right. Gonna be big points right there.

Also just caught the end of the arsenal Fulham game. Glad arteta missed the pk. Sounded like Fulham deserved a point.
 
2012-11-10 12:02:53 PM  
Feel that this is the weekend Liverpool puts it all together. 3-1 Reds.
 
2012-11-10 12:06:33 PM  
+40 for the day, because I put my banker on Swans. Crap.

Right. But if you're not confident enough in Arsenal (for example), don't put your banker on it. Try Everton or United or City. And if you put your banker on the one you're most confident about, surely there are other games (Reading-Norwich, Saints-Swans, Wigan-WBA) which are harder to predict and therefore deserve the insurance. It just seems strange that, from 10 choices, someone can be most confident and least confident of the same thing.
 
2012-11-10 12:16:42 PM  
Well, missing a lot of games this week and next as I'm moving (yay). But so far, this day is looking like a bust for me. Arsenal screwed me (banker chip). Hopefully I get a few points tommorow.
