So, I fucked up again and this is three days late – but we’re okay because it’s the international break; cause for both celebration and boos! Qualification for Euro 2012 is all but over, and England are through despite going down to 10 men in their last game, meaning that once again all of England who don’t normally watch football will be foaming at the mouth next summer (I was one of these last year for the World Cup but whatever).

Head-To-Head

Triangle United (Jaime G) vs. The Monolith FC (Chris G) 

The mighty Monolith rolled up to Triangle United this week and claimed a second successive scalp for their efforts, despite a close run contest with the league’s current leaders. It was all about the midfield and forwards for The Monolith, none of whom scored below six points, which included goals from Scott Sinclair, Luis Suarez and an otherwise poor Aaron Ramsey. A clean sheet from young defender Phil Jones secured him a share of the bonus spoils, which helped to put to bed a fine showing from Triangle, whose largely absent manager kept a winning team which included only a couple of goals, but a massive showing from Jose Enrique and keeper Joe Hart. Sergio Aguero’s first-half injury may have contributed to the five point difference here, and Jaime will feel hard done by for his second defeat on the trot.

Dillinger (Ben L) vs. Vanpersieandfriends (Dan S)

Another home-town derby for IRL rivals Ben and Dan. Dillinger were on fine form, with Ben’s faith in the expensive Frank Lampard earning him a hat-trick worth 15 points and all three bonus points too. Elsewhere Neil Taylor and Joe Hart kept clean sheets and Rooney an assist, which all proved too much for Vanpersieandfriends, who claimed but a single clean sheet from Patrice Evra and two assists from David Silva and Chris Brunt respectively, and suffered the loss of the excellent Bacary Sagna to a broken leg in the 67th minute.

WBF Flames FC (Tyler H) vs. The Wankahoozanes (Tree Beard)

Some decent showings from Rooney, Hart, Silva and Suarez ensured a fairly narrow victory for Tree Beard over the once-mighty WBF Flames. Despite keeper Michel Vorm, captain Silva and Rooney, the six goals conceded by Anton Ferdinand led to a negative swing in defence, and with average showings from the rest of the team it wasn’t to be.

Langland United (Craig T) vs. Orsaeth United (Kevin Z)

Langland United’s ‘captain clean sheet’ keeper Shay Given led from the back, adding to an assist each from forwards Wayne Rooney and Emmanuel Adebayor, and midfielder Seb Larsson. A couple of zero scores kept the score low, but it was more than enough to down Orsaeth, whose goal from Danny Welbeck was the only score of significance.

Kirellah (Erik H) vs. WE HATE LEEDS (Jon W)

Kirellah’s vice captain – and once again a keeper – Tim Howard allowed Erik’s team to steamroller out of the gates and allowed fellow American Clint Dempsey’s goal and assist to take them a long way towards victory. This was enough to down an admirable showing from Jon, with rare-scoring Jonas Gutierrez netting, Adebayor assisting, and keeper Joe Hart keeping a clean sheet.

Nicklas Bent? Naah.. (Karl N.) vs. Human Abstract XI (Rahul M)

Similarly to WBF Flames, Human Abstract XI suffered a disappointing week, with most of the team only lodging the basic 2 points for turning up. Joe Hart kept his clean sheet at the back, but there wasn’t much more of note. Conversely, Karl’s boys fared much better, keeping a clean sheet between the posts and at Centre-Back with Brede Hangeland, and Martin Petrov, David Silva and Wayne Rooney managed assists to gain a comfotable lead.

 Average vs. Hell Yeah (Rafael R)

One of the few to beat the average team so far, Rafael’s boys capped the mean score by six points with massive scores from defender Jose Enrique and midfielder Samir Nasri. Danny Welbeck and Luis Suarez added goals to the scoresheet, making for an impressive overall score.

With successive defeats for the league leaders, things are continuing to get interesting. Myself and Kevin are joint second, with fewer than ten points between us and Jaime.

All of this leaves us with the table as follows:
