The hardest game to predict is Cardiff/Newcastle. Most of the rest look pretty straightforward, but a lot of factors going into it. I think Cardiff will edge the Magpies, but just barely. Going to be a good game.

It is your FFPL report!


This report contains strong images of non-consensual sex and self-harm. Parental discretion is advised.

Last week, not one single player scored negative points. With both Manchester teams losing this week, a full quarter of the league took wounds ranging from a 'light splintering' to 'unwanted sexual attention from a donkey'. A -40 or -50 is usually enough to call attention to yourself, but this week the bar is much lower. Cameroncrazy1984 lodged a noteworthy -60 WITH a successful banker. Twins of shame dietbubba and Thunderchild gaped to -65's, incorporating -30s from MUFC Vs WBA that were so de rigueur this round. Scouserduck has people whispering behind his back, having recorded a seasons worst -70. In fact, lets give that score the debit it deserves. MINUS SEVENTY.

Eeyore!

A small number of hipsters decided negative scores were too mainstream for them. Stimied_in_a_Rut dragged in 100, just behind tom_servo_bit_me on 105. Top scorer of the round, and sprinting into first place we have wynswrld who brought in 130. With the only intact Max Banker left, wynswrld has the chance to increase his 100 point advantage over second and third placed nathanjr and Langston - or will the pressure tell?

Wherewolf and Darkwym operationalized WOPR strategy through not submitting predictions. 0 this week was a decent score. I distinguish between their 0s and Princips_Sandwich's zen.

The Bankers were massacred this week [if only]. Wynswrld takes the Presidency of the BB Club, which has very few members left now, with themanofpa, tom_servo_bit_me, Adubs86, chupacabra_sandwich and sachbash on 10s.

Tom_servo_bit_me gets his third mention of the week as highest climber, rising 12 places whilst Thunderchild drops 12. Norfolkingchance heads the top of Page 2, whilst Gonz_Hotspur clings onto the bottom of Page 1 by tiebreak.

Two of the top three are Arsenal. Two of the bottom three are Spurs. Most MUFC are on Page 2, but ¾ of NUFC are on Page 1.

Well last week was brutal. I take comfort in the fact it can't get any worse. Right?

City v Everton first up and dodgy keeper is still in place. Could be a close one

Theoretical minima is -120 from a 10 match round. That requires no insurance in play though.

LUKAKU

Dodgy keeping from Hart strikes again!

Thats just stuffed my prediction but

HA HAA

Everton score 1-0

NEGREDO

That was fast
 
2013-10-05 08:06:08 AM  
I do find the hilarity that Chelsea have wasted so much money on strikers, yet the two most in form strikers in the league in the last year have both been former and loaned Chelsea strikers. Why on earth they let Lukaku go on loan and why they insisted on trying to play Sturridge on the wing, I do not know.
 
2013-10-05 08:06:33 AM  
No more scoring for my perfect.

One more from Citeh for mine. Not that I mind them proving me wrong and failing to score the rest of the way.

Bayer 04 Leverkusen v FC Bayern München
AS Monaco vs Saint-Etienne
Wisła Kraków v Legia Warszawa (Sunday)

Bah, soft penalty and unlucky goal.  shiat.
 
2013-10-05 09:15:40 AM  
Aguero again.

Unlucky for Timmy, had he not done that stutter step he might have gotten more of a jump on that penalty to get a better hand on it.
 
2013-10-05 09:21:16 AM  
Hmmm, mixed feelings. I always want to see an Everton comeback and City to collapse...but if it stays this way, I can at least get a GD result in the FFPL
 
2013-10-05 09:38:24 AM  
The MIGHTY ones take on Southend United this week and ideally need a win to stay in the automatic promotion places
 
2013-10-05 09:43:08 AM  
Toon reverting to 442? Hmm.
 
2013-10-05 09:49:33 AM  
That peno was pathetic.

In other news I am quite hungover and attending a beer festival later today so I will probably be hung over tomorrow as well.  I also may have accidentally used the women's room last night while really drunk.  No ladies were in the room at that time.

I found the matches really difficult to predict this week.  The 3-1 to City gives me 10 points.  Was I crazy to put my banker on United again?

Sterling playing as a wing back. Why? Is Kelly dead? Wisdom?

What was with the banner of great Marxist leaders I noticed during the pre-game shots?  Does Liverpool have a historic communist connection I was unaware of?

Okay, no more goals.  I want a perfect.  I need it after last week's debacle

He had no business shooting from that angle. He had to be inch perfect to score from there and he was.

no way, we need to run up our gd.

They should have showed King Kenny's reaction to the goals.

And somewhere Chelsea is wondering why they have no strikers that can score
