Good result for Newcastle considering the circumstances.  Very disappointed in Liverpool.  We can't argue that we're a top four contender when we can't win matches like that.

midpoint: Christ! 30 points the hard way.


Oh wow. I thought I had called Liverpool/Newcastle 2-1, apparently I changed it to 2-2 sometime last night. Hooray for second thoughts (this time)

Also predicted a 2-1 Arsenal win today, but they're playing sort of loose at the moment. Pretty sure the Canaries will sting them on a counter today.

Fantastic goal by Arsenal

Cardiff has scored at Stamford Bridge, leads Chelsea at home 0-1.

Damn.  Hull levels against Everton. 1-1.

Flamini's passing today is horrible. Unless he's intending to pass to Norwich players.

/and there he goes to be subbed off

Honestly, it was hard to place a banker this week. Chelsea at home  seemed the most sure but it was only 2x and Cardiff can surprise you. Southampton doesn't concede many goals and Man U has had a bit of trouble creating, and you'd think Man City would be a slam-dunk, but they're unpredictable. There was no clear stand-alone Banker game that I was completely confident about. Everton seemed the most likely.

Eveton should win a game like this.  However, they were lucky to get the goal they got and really haven't created many chances. I would expect Everton to come out strong in the second half and hopefully win.  Hull's defense does not seem too well organized and there will be gaps to exploit.

That's what I'm hoping.

Morning folks. At the risk of jinxing it, it looks like Arsenal are safely at the top again.

Banker on Everton 2-1. Insured MUFC/SOU at 1-1

I have the game finishing 1-1 so I'm happy with the score right now.

It is your FFPL report!

img.fark.net

After a two week break and an invigorating 2-2 Toon-Pool game, FFPL returns!

At the top, wynswrld holds onto his commanding lead with his Banker Presidency fully intact. I sneak back into second and nathanjr spoons in close behind in third.

At the bottom, we have three sub-zeroes and two possible zombies. Cameroncrazy1984 has taken a moment out from commenting on the Politics tab to get in gear, but ocirats and okdaddio are smelling a bit off. But as okdaddio supports - squint - Burnley that might explain that.

Top-scorer of the week was Adubs86 with a respectable 145, incorporating a 90pt banker for a cheeky 1-3 prediction on NCFC Vs Chelski. Obamartins dragged in 125 with only two incorrect predications. Rev.K takes round bronze with 120. His total score after 7 rounds now 130.

The_man_of_pa scored a live zen. Page 2 zens all zombies I think. Zombie zens? Ooooooooooooommmmmmmbbrraaaaains.

Banker Bonus club showing green shoots of recovery, with Sachbash, tom_servo_bit_me and Adubs86 all waiting on a trip by wynswrld.

Highest climber of the week is Princips_Sandwich who rose 11. Sandwich Gap now at 55pts. Mr_H rises five within the top ten, no mean feat. Dropping 8 is Bolo78, thanks to 6 incorrect predications.

Juicepats clings onto the bottom of Page 2, whilst Dfect is just 5 points behind at the bottom of Page 2.
Our meadian player - Preebs - is scoring 38pts a week.

How far away is anthropological study of us as a group, based on distinctive tribal structures and a language system not seen before?

I see Grey Goose is sponsoring the NBC score line. They do know their audience

Southampton seems to be able to maintain quite a lot of possession.

That's odd, I'm not seeing that. On my scoreline I'm seeing nothing but large breasted Asian women promoting guitar lessons--WAIT A MINUTE

Sir Cumference the Flatulent: Unfreakable: And for those of you who might have missed it, Bayer Leverkusen won their game because of a ghost goal that somehow ended up in the back of the net despite never going through the goal mouth.

Here's another video that shows it a bit more:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44m9ewopBGk. The commentary sounds like Russian, but lots of replays to watch.

I heard about it on the radio, but didn't see it until now. I wonder if the Liga will overturn it. Not only did that win the match for Leverkusen, it put them in first place (pending whatever Dortmund and Bayern do in their matches).


I highly doubt they will. An official complaint has been filed, but the ruling pretty much has always been that they don't overturn calls made by the ref. Same thing with no-goals that actually did cross the line.


Bayern had something like 80% possession in the first half but it went to halftime at 0-1 against them after a horrible mistake left Mainz with an easy goal right before the half. However, Bayern came storming back and it's now 4-1 (3 goals, one penalty... a handball I believe... my feed froze and I only got a muffled German audio so it may have been something else) 

Dortmund got an early goal in and that's all so far. Schalke is still even with Braunschweig.

Pienaar!  Nearly 1st touch by the sub 2-1 Everton.

That'll do, Everton. That'll do
 
2013-10-19 11:24:04 AM
Had the Liverpool game on PVR. Just finished.

A 2-2 draw was a gift. That passing was horrendous. Conceding with Newcastle down to 10? Ugh.
 
2013-10-19 11:24:58 AM
Swansea got 3 in a hurry

Thank god.

Lord Jubjub: Southampton seems to be able to maintain quite a lot of possession.


Moyes isn't really a possession-based coach, is he?

And there's the goal from Norwich. Not a surprise at all.

Right now I'm sure there are a whole lot of Arsenal supporters in the stadium trying to remember Bendtner chants...

Well then, at least ManU gonna drop some points too

I gave Ramsey quite a bit of stick a few years ago. He wasn't playing well and I was vocal in my frustration.

Once again, Arsene was right and I was wrong. And I'm rarely this happy about being wrong. Ramsey has been world class.

Pathetic goal given up by United.  Then Chelsea scored a 4th and knocked my +45 down to +30. Jerks.

Man Utd making heavy weather of it against some ordinary sides. Lots of rebuilding needed. After seeing Zaha playing for the England U21s, I still don't understand why he's not a regular in the side.
