Good morning everybody. I'm up stupid-early again (I'm on a break from alcohol, and my brain is still apparently figuring out how to sleep without help) and will be watching whatever games NBC decides are best for me, in between messing around in the garage/woodshop. (Screwing together lengths of 2x4 and sheets of MDF is about the limit of my abilities, if anybody was wondering.)

Hello.
A quick look at the Dumpster Fire table
Fark user imageView Full Size

Usual write up of last week's goings on is here
The ref's table is hotting up with Coote taking top spot with 4 yellows last week.
But one to watch is Banks, who shot up to 2nd with a magnificent 8 card outing at Norwich.
However, Pawson's 7 card haul yesterday puts him in provisional pole for the weekend.

But this week sees the return of Darren England who, with an 8 point per game average, could make up some of the ground he lost in the past few weeks.
All the appointments can be seen here

Morning All,

Fitba-radio for me along with household chores.

Big game of the weekend tomorrow of course. I'm hoping for something bloody.

Meanwhile NUFC have a temporary [allegedly two games] coach - Graeme Jones, who was seconded to the England team for the Euros.

New manager bounce?

I'm not really sure Norwich have much of a chance here, but complacency from Chelsea is always a possibility.

My jump up the fantasy league was courtesy of some lucky bench moves, if Grealish had played I would've been 7  points lower, for example.

I wild carded this week.
Now I can watch 11 new players fail spectacularly
 
2021-10-23 7:21:48 AM  
I will be here for a little while, but I have to work the entire weekend (BOO HISS!!!).

Squires had his usual curse this week, his cartoon was a parody of Groundhog Day with Steve Bruce waking up as still the Newcastle manager every day.

I think it was up about 3 hours before being outdated.

This may be one of those games where I can't bear to watch, and maybe will replay later if the score permits.

I'm also expecting blood. I'm anticipating that OGS will rest all of his best players until the 70th minute when it's too late to make a difference, will play Shaw and Sancho in exactly the same space again leaving the midfield a man light, and will inexplicably give Fred another start.

Dang, I have to make breakfast for Mrs. Mistake and Mistake jr. I'll be at least fifteen minutes behind so I'll rejoin the thread here after halftime.

I expect that to go about as well as the new owner bounce did. Sorry.

It's a national holiday here today so all the shops are closed.
Yesterday I bought all the stuff I needed to put on the pizza that I was going to bake for half time.
Guess who doesn't have any flour?
 
2021-10-23 7:38:43 AM  
That took longer than I was expecting.
1-0
 
2021-10-23 7:39:32 AM  
Perfect placement by Mount. No keeper was going to stop that.

And Chelsea just works better with him in the side.

Pretty sure he's got loads.
Maybe he'll lend me some

The rout is on
 
2021-10-23 7:49:26 AM  
Can we just stop this one as 'no contest'?
 
2021-10-23 7:49:29 AM  
What a pass from Kovacic who I trade out this week
 
2021-10-23 7:49:31 AM  
To easy for Chelsea to pass through the Norwich defense.
2-0

I don't know. The man can organise a team and create a game plan. And we've got some players back.

Chelsea is doing their best to score a 3rd before the half is over.
 
2021-10-23 8:10:44 AM  
This is starting to look like a training field match.
And the crowd is so quiet
 
2021-10-23 8:11:56 AM  
Lovely chip from Reece James
 
2021-10-23 8:12:18 AM  
That was beautiful football right there

Delia not looking impressed
 
2021-10-23 8:13:14 AM  
That's my perfect... no way that lasts the second half the way Norwich are defending.

Outstanding finish though that one, very hard skill.
 
2021-10-23 8:13:31 AM  
Norwich carved open again.
3-0

And Tuchel continues to hate my fantasy team and refuses to play Alonso
 
2021-10-23 8:27:04 AM  
I put Mendy in goal this week.
While he's likely to pick up a clean sheet, I don't think he's going to need to do much work in terms of actually having to make any saves

dietbubba: And Tuchel continues to hate my fantasy team and refuses to play Alonso


He's been out of favour for 2 or 3 games now.
I dropped him this week for Chilwell
 
2021-10-23 8:40:44 AM  
Blimey!
Mendy had to make a block
 
2021-10-23 8:43:42 AM  
There's number 4.
Chilwell scores

The cover of this months WSC seemed a little mean when I got it, not quite so much on this evidence.

*wakes up, stumbles to the desk*

Geez, 4-0?  How did I wake up before one of the teams did?
 
2021-10-23 8:49:48 AM  
Five
 
2021-10-23 8:50:35 AM  
And a dribbler is 5.  That just seems...I'm not sure appropriate is the right word

So I guess the 'handball of any kind rules out a goal' only applies when it's an attacker doing it.

I wonder if the chelsea fans will bring out the old favourite chant 'we want six, we want six'
 
2021-10-23 8:51:53 AM  
It gets worse. Second yellow for Gibson
 
2021-10-23 8:52:21 AM  
Ok, now Norwich are down to ten... and chelsea could probably *score* ten.
 
2021-10-23 8:52:42 AM  
Injury to insult.
Red card to Gibson.
Bad tackle on James.
 
2021-10-23 8:53:04 AM  
And now I have to get ready to go to work :(.
 
2021-10-23 8:53:24 AM  
Alright, 25+stoppage, up 5, against 10.

How high does CHE go?
 
2021-10-23 8:53:43 AM  
Chelsea fans are going with 'are you Tottenham in disguise' at the moment.
