Co-Commissioner MGlo may not be as succinct as he was last week, but he’s here with the Week 3 BPFL wrap. Take it away, good sir:
So I guess it’s time for Week 2’s writeup to come down. Such a shame because it was such an enjoyable post to write….and read over and over and over again!
Anyway, moving on to Week 3, there was no change at the top of the table. All of the usual suspects were there with current champions Rise* of FC Hammer leading the way. Level on 9 points with the Hammer is Disgruntled Numpties and my Old27m team.
I am not surprised by my current standing as I have been there before, but my bravado will be slightly tempered by the fact that I ran off seven straight victories to start last season but still finished out of the top 10.
The Average team is holding their own as they remain in the 4th spot on 7 points, while Clever and Witty are a point further back.
Performance of the Week: Thank you, thank you. Yes, I’ll take this one as my 80 points were better than all of the rest of you. Captain Robin van Persie’s hat trick was huge (30 points despite a missed penalty), but it was goals from midfielders Kevin Nolan, Jonathan Walters, Michu and YaYa Toure that really sent me on my way. Throw in a clean sheet and six saves from Jussi Jaaskelainen and here we are.
Unlucky Loser: Fall River Marksmen wins this gong as his 68 points were the third highest score of the week. Unfortunately he played the Numpties who had the second-highest score with 77. [It hurt. Real bad like.—Ed.]
Asleep At the Wheel: This one goes to my opponent, Sporting de Dijon, who transferred in Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand. While on the face of it, it doesn’t look a bad move given the Blues injury problems. But the fact that Chelsea didn’t have a game last week kind of makes you wonder what’s going on at SDJ, and might explain the 0-0-3 start.
Thanks MGlo. Have a great weekend, everyone, don’t forget to pick your teams, and good luck in the games.
