GW24 - Deadline Saturday 20th January 11.30 AM

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.

Evening all. Fresh from the Shed and Steve's roundup, I can honestly say that I am now full of snot and headache. VAR has many uses, and when I discover just whose germs these are, penalties will be awarded. Forgive me if I stay behind the Batcave Box Office's glass window - it's best for us all.

Norwich did good last night, even if they lost :(
Sanchez still rumbling on, Giggs gone to Wales, Neville to the Lionesses, Walcott to Everton, and I'm sure Stoke bought someone...

Fixture list and wild predictions:

Saturday

Brighton 12:30 Chelsea I hope Chelsea get stuffed after last night
Arsenal 15:00 Crystal Palace Woah. I prophesy disaster.
Burnley 15:00 Man Utd Burnley might get turned over
Everton 15:00 West Brom If Walcott scores a hat trick it wouldn't surprise me
Leicester 15:00 Watford Even Stevens.
Stoke 15:00 Huddersfield Yawnfest
West Ham 15:00 Bournemouth Feisty little game with a touch of citrus
Man City 17:30 Newcastle This one will fizz and pop

Sunday

Southampton 16:00 Spurs There will be a fight

Monday

Swansea 20:00 Liverpool SWA 0 LIV 799397690

Get your backsides in gear then...

i have a fighting chance if the work i didn't do when i'm poorly and knackered wasn't still there when i'm better, causing more working hours to get it done and more knackeredness, leading to being run down and ill and...

soup sounds good

Carrot? :urff:

Brighton should have had 2 penalties by now.
Even the 4th official can't believe it

There was a kid holding up a sign that read "Hazard 10 can I please have your shirt"
& then after the final whistle...

Losing two of our best in Cyrille Regis and Jimmy Armfield this week is not how a transfer window is supposed to work :'(

Is 2018 going to be the year footy legends leave us? :(

i'm tempted to say they're joining the God Squad...

I hope not. I don't want anyone to go! Unless they really really have to

Here we are again then, pondering the FA Cup after last week's shenanigans. Untidy are 1 up against Yeovil at HT. I'm assuming that JoMo picked the half time oranges himself from the top of the ladder? What an embarrassment of a press conference. The man's a self regarding idiot who isn't nearly as clever as he thinks he is, and certainly no Cantona. SHUT UP, JOSÉ. ahem. Let's see how Sanchez gets on.
Dealing with the predictions...

Saturday

Brighton 12:30 Chelsea I hope Chelsea get stuffed after last night Sadly, not. Hazard having a great spell, and Willian doing himself no disservice either.
Arsenal 15:00 Crystal Palace Woah. I prophesy disaster. It was for Palace... Monreal was all over the pitch.
Burnley 15:00 Man Utd Burnley might get turned over Not really. Lukaku managed to stick his nose in.
Everton 15:00 West Brom If Walcott scores a hat trick it wouldn't surprise me He got an assist and a yellow card. Game overshadowed by McCarthy's nasty leg break in a freak tackle accident that left Rondon in tears. No fault of his. McCarthy's had surgery - best of luck.
Leicester 15:00 Watford Even Stevens. The Mahrez and Vardy thing happened. Ace!
Stoke 15:00 Huddersfield Yawnfest Stoke managed a win!
West Ham 15:00 Bournemouth Feisty little game with a touch of citrus
Man City 17:30 Newcastle This one will fizz and pop Looking at the bonus scores, it seems to have been more of an apple juice.

Sunday

Southampton 16:00 Spurs There will be a fight It was there, somewhere. Wasted by Spurs, but fair play to the Saints.

Monday

Swansea 20:00 Liverpool SWA 0 LIV 799397690 Oh dear.

Eriksen and Arnautovic are injured. WBA seem to have 6 down! Richarlison's bubble might have burst, and LOT of people have sold Kane and Son.

I nearly forgot the tables! EIB won the week, with IGM and BB&S scoring identical numbers of points. Steve has a breakdown after checking that 786477699 times, poor lad, just as well he has a week off. BB&S still in pole position though.
Image

The Yellow Shirt of Glory stays where it is, with Damage Dunfermline.
Image

The Big Shout Out belongs to Mish Mosh - 78 points!
Image

and the H2H crown sits atop the noble head of Dead Men Walking. Not a sentence one types often.
Image

Finally, those H2H tables - I moved up a place! Woooo! BB&S are winning this too.
Image

Have a rest for a week, and see you back at the Shed when Steve has stopped gibbering. About this, anyway. ;D :kiss:

Me gibber? :P
So now it seems safe to pick Sanchez as you know he's actually going to make an effort now.
I wonder if Mick O'Targaryen will start shining though.
As for the fight at the Saints vs Spuds game, the crowd did seem to be in competition for the "When the //insert team name here// go marching in" song.
Does that count?
Well played all :notworthy:
Now I need to round up some words for GW25.
....gulp....
Cheers.
