FPL GW25: Preview, update and review (Deadline 10 Feb 19:30)

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

Well... IGM I think we were nailed last GW and it was a bummer. We didn't see the heavies, nobody was in the green room, or, on cheater five. I include myself in that comment.

But hey! Fuck the dweebs and hodads. C'mon Dudes and Dudette! Let's get fucking gnarly this GW! :von:

We are IGM. We will never max out again! Fer sure.

So let's get stoked. Surfs up! :kiss:

A 69 point thrashing last week ?? :eek:
How can the differentials be so big when some key players (Kane, Austin, Ivanovic etc) feature in almost every week. Sometimes I suppose it comes down to the luck of the captain's armband lottery. Or how many Leicester players you bought in the WC transfer window :roll:

Or the skill? It will make or break yous, or mines, GW. You're learning.

I'm desperately trying to ignore your LEI/WC comment, as I've learnt that having even one LEI player in my 15-man squad is a kiss of death. They're like a virus. Bubonic plague springs to mind.

Pearson says Leicester are well up for it :innocent:
In fairness, they did manage to keep Palace to just one goal.
Turning point?
Cheers.

0-0 is always a moral victory to the tide you're siding with.

Haha.
For all his faults, I quite like Jose.
He actually has the stones to say what all the other managers really want to.

Slightly (very) p!$$ed off that Giroud is on the bench.
I guess Wenger's saving him for the FA cup match then :roll:

So the dust has settled, the pencil and pen have conferred and The Man in the Hungarian Shed looked like this today.

Image

Your scores on the doors are...

The Sisters 523 - 485 The Cure

GW25 differential: +38 The Sisters

Overall differential: +259 The Sisters

The coveted Yellow Jersey...

Image

...is once again retained by FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 (Johnny Rev 7.0) and is becoming quite a snug-fit. Or I'm just getting fat. :lol:

The...

Image

...is shared between FC Bennweg-Zeis 1921 (Johnny Rev 7.0) and Simply Elegant (PaulwUK), both with a respectable 60pts in an otherwise tough GW. [s]I thought I was on for my second double of the season until I realised he'd fluked it with Koscienly's Alice band. Grrr...[/s] Well done Paul! :notworthy:

Thanks to all who participated. Thanks to all who crossed over, um... Pista.

We'll see yous all in Jo Brand look-alike land in GW26. We're coming mob-handed because...

The Gospel of markfiend, 5:9, describes the following in the country of the Cyberspace:
And He (Pista) asked him (Johnny Rev 7.0), "What is thy name?" And he answered, saying, "My name is IGM: for we are many."
Love as always. :von:

Well, not as heavy as last GW :D

We were 51 down after Tuesday, so picking up the 13 on Wednesday was pretty helpful. :)
Still gnashing my teeth at Ersey Whinger for not starting Giroud, but the Koscielny Alice band was an inspired choice.
I think our Cheesy is also cursing the fact her latest squeeze (Kane) wasn't sporting the arm warmer too.
Now a 10 day breather. Time to consider things like, do we really need Costa?
Will QPR really provide some heavy hitters?
Do Aston Vill....nah, scratch that :innocent:

Thanks again for hosting the week :notworthy: :notworthy: & see you all over at "Not only a 4 string bass, but a Fender VI too" land :D

Now where did I put that shed key?.....
Cheers.
