So...is this the week Cardiff are relegated, or can they close the gap with Southampton and Brighton by somehow winning both matches?  I do not think they have it in them.

Hi all.
Missed last night's match but in for today. Fingers crossed the Tans get a walloping today.
Usual write up of last week is here
The FPL table looks like this

Dean's at Burnley today & Taylor is only on 4th official duty at the same match so his chances of catching up are done for.

The classified results of the second round of the Pratchett Shield are:

LucklessWonder [45] Vs [70] Kevinatilusa
Rev.K [25] Vs [90] ABTL
CyreneValention[75] Vs [60] Dietbubba
WhitherApophis[50] Vs [0] Goomba
TheMothership [65] Vs [115] Dead_for_tax_reasons
Langston [70] Vs [105] Princips_Sandwich
DesertGeek [0] Vs [70] Eclectic
NorfolkingChance [0] Vs [70] Wynswrld

Cup holder Dietbubba goes crashing out in the second round, and TheMothership and Langston  are casualties from the top ten and CyreneValention the lowest ranked player still fighting [26th].

The quarter-finalists of the Pratchett Shield are therefore:

Kevinatilusa
ABTL
CyreneValention
WhitherApophis
Dead_for_tax_reasons
Princips_Sandwich
Eclectic
Wynswrld

Draw this round, played next round.

In League news, the top three remains unchanged, but there is only 40 points between EqualOpportunityEnslaverin first and wynswrldin second. Princips_Sandwichanother 40 points back in third and dead_for_tax_reasonsisn't out of it yet, just 100 behind the leader. At the bottom NorfolkingChanceisn't going on the cart just yet, as he's breathing but also zenning.

Nogalltogetherand dead_for_tax_reasons tied for round high score, which I don't recall having happened before? 115 their total. Princips_Sandwich and thethirdmanboth lodged 105s. Terrible week for me, as a blown x3 banker on my own team at home led me to a -30. Ouch! NorfolkingChance in relative balance and harmony and Rev.Kwith a 25 amongst the breathers.

Dietbubba has sneaked his way back onto Page 1, displacing whither_apophis. In the League of Leagues, FFPL sank another 4 spots to 129th.

Morning, chaps.

I will say Spurs do look a bit lost without Kane and Alli on the pitch.

there it is. 1-0
 
2019-04-13 07:55:52 AM  
Spurs finally break through.
Wanyama gets the goal after a fine lay off from Llorente.
1-0

Moura!
 
2019-04-13 07:57:27 AM  
And it is quickly 2-0.
Moura with the strike to the far post.
Keeper should have done better with that.

That was a sweetly hit strike

The Terriers are already relegated and you wanted something better from the keeper NOW?

Ask Hamer, and I am willing to guess that he should have saved that.

Well, if I am up this early, I may as well use my powers.

I just noticed that a miracle has happened overnight: I'm not last in the fantasy league. What is this?!

I remember last year when I spent the majority as the bottom feeder and only made my way out of it in the last few weeks to get 10th.  This year, I have been comfortably mid-table.

Good call putting the alice band on Milivojevic.
20 points just from him

But you did win the world cup fantasy league
 
2019-04-13 08:33:40 AM  
One more please Spurs to get me a perfect & undo the -10 I picked up yesterday.
 
2019-04-13 08:34:19 AM  
So unlucky from Llorente.
What a pass and even better first touch from Llorente.
 
2019-04-13 08:34:22 AM  
Llorente denied by Bar.
 
2019-04-13 08:35:42 AM  
I'm only still in the Cup because of my banker streak bonus. My first of those of the season I think...

The sad part is that I won the first Fark edition of the league, by less than 3 points. I've been getting progressively worse ever since, as I get better on FFPL. FFPL has gone from barely cracking top 20 on 2013-14 to consistently top 5 this year. I think I finished 4th or 5th last year.
 
2019-04-13 08:38:52 AM  
Did get 3rd on FFPL for Brazil 2014, at least. Sucked out loud for Russia, iirc.
 
2019-04-13 08:42:58 AM  
Oh dear.  Kachunga and Wanyama having a coming together and both look a bit worse for wear.

Hell, this last World Cup, I was number 1 by about 10 points, but that did not carry over to this campaign.

The shape of the stands facing the length of the pitch reminds me of the Stade Velodrome.

'Uddersfield with the Sunderland formation for this match.
 
2019-04-13 08:51:32 AM  
Now that's a stat. 38 out of Huddersfield's 71 PL matches have ended with them scoreless. You can't make it for long with attack that futile.
 
2019-04-13 08:53:42 AM

Swansea striker. You should expect that.

/our striker shelf life seems to be 2 years
 
2019-04-13 08:57:27 AM  
2 goals for Mounie all season. That's just embarrassing for a starting striker.
 
2019-04-13 08:58:03 AM  
If that isn't the epitome of Huddersfield this year.  That was a grand opportunity and they could not get the goal.

They're in so deep that the runner gets exhausted by the time he has to spring the shot.
 
2019-04-13 08:59:46 AM  
Llorente is limping.  Oh goody.  Get him off for Son.
 
2019-04-13 08:59:57 AM  
WHY YOU NO HEAD IT?!

That's 2 more than Tekkers

Mounier puts it just wide.

Welp....I wanted to take care of my fantasy team early so I brought Kane in on Monday.  He got injured. So to try and fix my team I've done something I've never done and spent 8 points in order to get Son in my midfield and made him captain.

Needless to say.... my "takes this shiat too seriously ass" woke up to some unpleasant news.

I farking hate all of this.
 
2019-04-13 09:07:25 AM  
Lloris still manages a save and maintaining a clean sheet.
 
2019-04-13 09:07:50 AM  
Eriksen denied by Post.  bugger
 
2019-04-13 09:08:38 AM  
The ref seriously had to use the vanishing spray there?
There's already a line painted on the pitch right there
