Quite. We don’t usually post at the weekend as you know, but I got so caught up in actual music news yesterday that I completely forgot to do this, so here we are, but one day late!
It was a very low-scoring week, with everyone’s top picks performing below par. Wayne Rooney, star of previous weeks, and despite scoring, missed a penalty by falling flat on his arse. Whoops. Some big upsets, with Arsenal getting utterly dicked by Blackburn, Fernando Torres finally scoring and subsequently missing an open goal, and previously unbeaten Stoke dying a death at the hands of Sunderland. Without further ado, on with the report!

Human Abstract XI (Rahul M) vs. The Monolith FC (Chris G)
The Monolith were clearly distracted this week and barely showed up. Most players scored no more than one or two points – defender Robert Huth taking a minus hit for four goals conceded – and only a goal from Wayne Rooney and an assist from David Silva saved my blushes. Relative annihilation occured at the hands of big boys Human Abstract XI, who despite three minus points, had a masterful display from Joey Barton (one goal, one assist, a clean sheet and two bonus points), with goals from Leon Best and Wayne Rooney and an assist from Ben Watson. Ho boy.
Dillinger (Ben L) vs. Orsaeth United (Kevin Z)
Kevin, gunning with a mere 22 points, must have thought himself sunk, with only Wayne Rooney and Franco Di Santo’s goals and negative two points from Charlie Adam’s woeful red card, but thankfull for him it was enough to edge out Ben, who managed only an assist from Edin Dzeko, and thanks to Adam holding the captain’s armband, took a -4 point swing. Very unlucky, and not a great show from either side.
WBF Flames FC (Tyler H) vs. WE HATE LEEDS (Jon W)
WHL’s showing was much improved this week, with a couple of assists up front going a long way to push up Jon’s score, but it was not to be against one of the league’s heavy hitters. With three of the week’s dream team members in Michel Vorm (clean sheet and six saves), Seb Larsson (a bonus point for a goal, two assists and a clean sheet from midfield) and Sergio Aguero (two goals and man of the match) topping assists from Cheik Tiote, David Silva and Ashley Young, 65 points put them to the sword.
Langland United (Craig T) vs. Kirellah (Erik H)
Triangle United (Jaime G) vs. Hell Yeah (Rafael R)
Nicklas Bent? Naah.. (Karl N.) vs. Vanpersieandfriends (Dan S)
Average vs. The Wankahoozanes (Tree Beard)
Poor Tree Beard. Another victim of the nigh unstoppable Average team, he came closer than most, despite a really strong showing form Larsson, Rooney and Silva. He was also another victim of the red card – Charlie Adam again. Bad news bears for The Wankahoozanes.
This leaves us with the table as follows:
|1||Human Abstract XI||5||0||0||277||15|
|3||Nicklas Bent? Naah..||4||0||1||287||12|
|5||WBF Flames FC||3||0||2||266||9|
|7||The Monolith FC||3||0||2||234||9|
|14||WE HATE LEEDS||0||0||5||125||0|
The fixtures for the next gameweek are as follows:
|The Monolith FC||v||Langland Utd|
|Kirellah||v||WBF Flames FC|
|WE HATE LEEDS||v||Dillinger|
|The Wankahoozanes||v||Nicklas Bent? Naah..|
|Hell Yeah||v||Human Abstract XI|
No new entries this week, and plenty of movement. As the new gameweek has already started, I haven’t got the exact movements, but I did shot and that’s all I care about right now. Balls!
