Crazy huge number of games for FFPL purposes. I predict epic positive and negative scores. And the MIGHTY Oxford United to keep their unbeaten road record intact.

Not only 20 to predict, but only one banker and one insurance chip. Listening to the arsenal game now, but talksport has the Everton and villa matches as well

It was crazy.

Always play until the whistle--even if you anticipate one.
 
2013-11-30 10:20:05 AM
Arsenal lacking fluidity, but still looking strong. And I love hearing the Gunners away support singing in Cardiff. Love. It.

I'm just following the BBC website commentary and Giroud's getting a lot of crap for that from the comments.
 
2013-11-30 10:28:52 AM
Ramsey!
 
2013-11-30 10:28:53 AM
THAT was beautiful
 
2013-11-30 10:30:01 AM
RAMSEY!

Pretty classy move for him to not celebrate it. Respect to Wales. Good lad.
 
2013-11-30 10:31:12 AM
Well I guess that was coming. Ah well
 
2013-11-30 10:32:04 AM
Well, that's good for my fantasy team (I had to move Ramsey to captain with Sturridge out for at least this weekend), but not good for what I want to happen today. Get it together, you red bluebirds!
 
2013-11-30 10:32:13 AM
If you can find video of the Bournemouth/Brighton game from earlier, both goals are crackers.
 
2013-11-30 10:32:49 AM
Gary Hooper has scored for Norwich.

Langston: RAMSEY!

He was a Cardiff player so...

Stimied in a Rut: Well I guess that was coming. Ah well


It's a long game and Cardiff doesn't roll over so easily. This game is far from over.
 
2013-11-30 10:34:33 AM
Norwich are up now as well. That works for me!
 
2013-11-30 10:35:53 AM
This is not Aaron Ramsey. Wenger bought some sort of Ramsey-bot with the last 6 years' worth of transfer money.

Yeah, that slipped my mind.. I knew it was a Welsh team, wasn't positive which one.

Maybe Ramsey gains power with each failed transfer bid.

Giroud stopped because he thought he was offside. Everyone else stopped to admire Giroud.
 
2013-11-30 10:41:18 AM
Wilshere is working his ass off. All of the team are running hard, but Jack's working noticeably harder despite that. Wow.
 
2013-11-30 10:42:15 AM
Everton are well on top against Stoke, but have not scored, still 0-0. Stoke's GK, Begovic, is a good one.  The top teams would do well to look at him.
 
2013-11-30 10:43:37 AM
Random fact of the day, depending on the outcome of the match today the final four of the women's ncaa soccer tournament could be all acc teams. Virginia tech is already one of those teams

Y, it looked like he thought that he hadn't been flagged because he hadn't yet touched the ball, but expected that as soon as he "became active" he would be flagged -- something that happens a lot.
 
2013-11-30 10:47:23 AM
Everton finally score!
 
2013-11-30 10:48:52 AM
Everton up, Deulofeu!  1-0, now HT.  Good patience in the box after a give and go with Pineaar.
 
2013-11-30 10:52:20 AM
Jesus, Fulham are in trouble this year. It's finally becoming obvious that Jol has completely lost the plot. Hope he's gone by Xmas, Meulensteen can certainly do no worse.
 
2013-11-30 10:53:48 AM
Afternoon everyone.

FFPL report to follow later.
 
2013-11-30 10:54:52 AM
I know its only Crystal Palace but Norwich are looking better than they have done (touch wood). Hoolahan and Redmond are the keys to making this side tick.

I'm surprised they've struggled so much, honestly.
 
2013-11-30 11:04:44 AM
Neuer ran out to stop a guy well out in front, tackled him and the ball was loose, another guy had a shot at open goal and Alaba ran up and just stick out his ankle and deflected the shot. My description does not give credit enough to how awesome of a save this was, hope someone posts video later.
 
2013-11-30 11:06:37 AM
I need another Everton goal for a perfect banker. Seeing how badly this week can go, I know I'll need it.
 
2013-11-30 11:07:57 AM
Everton up 2 and west ham take the lead against Fulham
 
2013-11-30 11:08:56 AM
The wee baby Seamus scores for Everton!

Thank you Everton.
 
2013-11-30 11:14:07 AM
West Ham giving me a perfect too. Doing well so far. Just need Villa to score to give me all positives.
 
2013-11-30 11:17:10 AM
Everton is rampant. ...

And as I type that... 3-0.
 
2013-11-30 11:17:20 AM
Goddammit Everton. Stop being THAT good. Now concede please.

Its a combination of lots of new players needing to bed in and Houghton not really being Premier League quality as a manager. If we still had Lambert then we would be fighting for a Europa League spot but we will still be looking over our shoulders at the drop. The big problem is that there isn't really any one better available unless we take a risk on a manager from the lower leagues like we did with Lambert.

Still lower mid table mediocrity for a couple of years and no debts is nice for a while.
 
2013-11-30 11:19:41 AM
At least my banker didn't blow up in my face like all of the MU ones last week.

Making Berbatov captain was a bad mood. Especially when you have Captain Parker in the squad.
 
2013-11-30 11:20:45 AM
Newcastle/West Brom could be a heck of a match.
 
2013-11-30 11:26:58 AM
Bunch of positives right now with only the villa match wrong. Talksport commentators are pretty good
 
2013-11-30 11:31:31 AM
Dear Arsenal: I will happily give up my perfect on the current scoreline for the security of a second goal.

Langston: Dear Arsenal: I will happily give up my perfect on the current scoreline for the security of a second goal.


I second this motion, mostly because it would give me a perfect.
 
2013-11-30 11:35:53 AM
Everton 4-0 ....  Lukaku!
 
2013-11-30 11:37:13 AM
Either Arsenal is playing flat or Cardiff enjoys killing giants.

/probably a bit of both.
 
2013-11-30 11:37:25 AM
When did Sczesney get so good?
 
2013-11-30 11:37:26 AM
Damn. If I'd known Stoke would be this bad, I'd have tried to bank on a different match. Well, +30's still good.
