BPFL Weeks 13 and 14: Family Affair

BPFL Subbuteo

Co-commissioner MGlo, who continues to rule the BPFL roost, is here with a recap of Weeks 13 and 14. The top of the table is crowded with familial relations as a father-son duo are 1-2 and a pair of brothers are 4-5—followed by their brother-from-another-mother in sixth place.

Also, there was trash-talk via hyperlink.

Take it away MGlo:

Well it’s nice to see that after 14 Gameweeks my Old27m squad continues to lead the way. I put up 70 points against the Nearpost for a comfortable win. The victory ended my two-game losing streak and leaves me 8 points clear of the two second-place clubs.

In Week 13 I struggled with four dead guys, but I took care of that problem in Week 14 and am ready to face Colorado Keeper this week. Always a lively match, the Keeper has thrown down the gauntlet with this taunting link.

All I can say is he best hope I don’t win or I will be writing next week’s wrap up as well!

Speaking of the Keeper, he has now won two straight and is tied on points for the fourth spot with his brother, Disgruntled Numpties, and Abes Army. The former has won three of his last four matches, while the latter, since making changes for the first time in months, has lost two in a row. He has also lost twice to the Average club, which I guess makes him … below average?

All three teams are just a point behind I Am Liverpool and Markansas. The young-un has lost two of his last three while Markansas has won three in a row and four of his last five, with just one defeat in his last eight (6-1-1). That should make for an interesting matchup as the two clubs battle against each other for the second spot this week.

Performance of the Week: Surprisingly this award went to Fall River Marksmen, who pulled down 79 points this week, and did so without a goalkeeper! [Goalkeeper? We don’t need no stinkin’ goalkeeper!Ed.] Rafael and PGA range ball John Arne Riise both earned clean sheets for the Marksmen, with the latter getting 2 Bonus Points. Jon Walters scored a goal and also added 2 Bonus Points, while Swansea’s Wayne Routledge scored 2 goals and got the appropriate 3 Bonus Points. Gareth Bale pulled down 10 points from 6 different categories (Goal, Assist, Minutes Played, Yellow Card, Own Goal, Bonus Points), while up front Captain Robin van Persie and Rickie Lambert each scored a goal and earned 5 Bonus Points between them. Disgruntled Numpties won this award in Week 13.

Unlucky Loser: This one put a smile on my face as I Am Liverpool took home the gong in Week 14, falling 58-48 to Colorado Keeper. What a shame. I was rooting for you! Abes Army and Rise* of FC Hammer were the unfortunate ones the previous week.

Match of the Week:  Along with the two matches I have already mentioned, there is a relegation 6-pointer this week, as 14th-place Prison Mike (15 points) hosts 10th-place Fall River Marksmen (16 points). The convict has lost two straight, while the Marksmen ended their four-game losing run.

Thanks MGlo! We’re going to play you out with a little request from the Colorado Keeper:

Don’t forget to set your teams today, and good luck in Week 15.
