(Guardian)   After the managerial merry-go-round in south west London its time to get down to the football again. Will any one stop the Baggies going boing-boing and can Big Sam keep West Ham winning? It's the weekly EPL thread   (guardian.co.uk) divider line 204

I cringe everytime Fulham concedes a corner.
 
2012-11-24 10:20:34 AM  
Hughes being sacked had me changing it from a 3-1 to a 2-1. I was doing well when I was just instinctively predicting the scores. Now I've started second guessing and it isn't going so well.
 
2012-11-24 10:26:18 AM  
Our defense is shiate.
 
2012-11-24 10:26:34 AM  
So is this the old Harry mojo going to work or is it the dead cat bounce?

Same here. I need to go back to gut calls.
 
2012-11-24 10:28:48 AM  
Alright chaps, I'm off to work. Hopefully in my absence Fulham will stop playing like shiat. See you guys tomorrow morning.

I had a dream last night that I was one of those Sky Sports biatches and I was reporting that QPR beat Manchester United because QPR had been playing badly intentionally to get Hughes fired and now that he's gone and have his royal wheeler dealer they can play to their potential.

And not a single naked footballer. My dreams are lame.

midpoint: Step forward [back?] BJmichel, DJBigbird, DesertGeek and Juicepats who all managed a robust -70.


Well, you know what my team's slogan is. You'll never walk alone.

/Think I had a West Brom 2-1 too.
 
2012-11-24 10:40:50 AM  
Since when did Charlie Adam start scoring goals?
 
2012-11-24 10:51:41 AM  
QPR playing well, United not so much. Semi-boring first half so hopefully the second half is much better.

That bloke was 15 metres from the net, and he kicked the ball about 30 metres over th net with a thunderous BOOT. Nice finesse there, jackwagon!!
 
2012-11-24 11:05:06 AM  
Okay so nice centering pass, then the windup and...BOOT! Way over the net. The bloody bloke just wanted to show how hard he could kick it, accuracy be damned....look ma, BOOOOOOOOT!!!
 
2012-11-24 11:13:58 AM  
Man United once again concedes early in the second half.
 
2012-11-24 11:15:12 AM  
JAMIE MACKIE!

Of course, this is bad for me because I have my banker on a United win.
 
2012-11-24 11:18:23 AM  
Glad I didn't put my banker on a United win.
 
2012-11-24 11:29:14 AM  
Man U level with Evans

Feeling bad now are we?
Fletcher makes it 2-1, and United looking like adding more.
 
2012-11-24 11:32:55 AM  
3-1 Hernandez, that gives me goal difference here too.

Quite. I predicted a 3-1 win. Would be sitting on 90 points right now!

This is only a x2 multiplyer. Bankers only get x3 on non-top 4 teams.

Well 60 is still more than 30 haha.

I need a goal from Reading and Fulham to get every result correct.

You've already got half of that. I just need Fulham and Norwich to score and it will be a full house

And there's the most ridiculous weasel flop I've seen in a coon's age. He touched him with his pinkie....and flop flop!

Apparently not ;__;

I also put Al Habsi as my keeper in Fantasy PL this week at the last minute. That...is not working out.
 
2012-11-24 11:52:10 AM  
And of course seb bassong ruins my banker at the last moment
 
2012-11-24 11:54:42 AM  
Pissing away points week after week after farking week.
 
2012-11-24 11:56:29 AM  
Jordi Gomez ruins a correct draw at the last, so with the win here, I have +15 for the day with one to play. Yeesh. Thanks a lot Fulham and Everton for capitulating yet again.
 
2012-11-24 11:58:17 AM  

obamartins: And of course seb bassong ruins my banker at the last moment


Thats 15 points for me. Without Neville or Fallani Everton are not the team they were.

Not a bad day. Reading and Fulham have cost me 20 points but the 60 from Man U will counter that nicley
 
2012-11-24 11:59:32 AM  
United are awful. It doesn't reflect well on the rest of the league that they're in the top two.

Anderson changed the game. It doesn't reflect well on him or his club that he isn't fit enough to play a full 90 minutes.
 
2012-11-24 12:00:55 PM  
Stupid late goals killed my predictions. Think I'm on -10 after getting the United match perfect.

Man Utd never ever play very well before Christmas. The start slow, look awful, pick up the points then build and build starting in January. Its the same script every year.

There's no club in the EPL this year that's clearly superior to everyone else. Every single team has at least one major flaw, whether it's injures (Liverpool) or finishing (Liverpool) or coaching (QPR?) or ownership (Chelski) or they're just inconsistent (both Manchester teams). It makes for great drama as the season plays out, but it also makes for a seemingly mediocre league.

No, they peak after Christmas. I'm not looking for them to peak. I'm looking for competent defending, players playing in their correct positions, players playing in the correct games, an energetic, dominant midfield, solutions to problems that have been obvious for years, not wasting funds on strikers when the team scored 89 league goals the previous season, etc. They should be able to do all that without approaching their peak.

This week has been ugly for me. With the exception of Man Utd winning, I've been wrong on...everything.

Truth. Three good weeks in a row and you could be middle of the front page.

Arsenal doesn't want this game. I smell a 1-0 defeat coming
 
2012-11-24 01:59:48 PM  
Fark off, Gervinho. You have the worst touch in the EPL. Go to the Africa Cup of Nations and stay there

HaywoodJablonski: Fark off, Gervinho. You have the worst touch in the EPL. Go to the Africa Cup of Nations and stay there


Ramsey is also playing poorly. His passing is okay but he always takes the shot and never makes it. Every time the ball goes to Ramsey in the box I just know its going to be a loss of possession.

Stupid Arsenal screwing up my banker. Should have put it on United like I was thinking. Way to screw it up Gunners!

Never put your banker on Arsenal. They're just not consistent enough.

I think we need to come up with a list of things you shouldn't do with your predictions. Bet against Wst Brom, Newcastle are not the team they were, Fulham can't win away from home, Arsenal are not consitant enough for a banker ?
