Yahoo! EPL Fantasy League Week 37. One more week to go. Mossy gets a bear hug on the title with the week's top score, and a commanding 600-point lead. Meanwhile the fight for third place hots up between old arch-rivals Fat Buddha, Fooker and me. Table and snarky comments inside.

I've got my eye on third...

Third place? You're having a laugh!

Whatever occurs Mossy, that's one heck of a performance. 100th percentile? Sheesh!

"...monetary bets are haram."?

halal = kosher = OK haram = unclean = not OK

I'm confused, who are the Misanthropes? Who are the Keystone Kippers?

posted by StarFucker at 09:39 PM on May 14, 2004

who are the docile nonces, because they are going to be in last place next week. hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Misanthropes are managed by Buddha. Keystone Kippers are mine. docile nonces, I believe, are lilnemo's.

OH! Well then, third place is mine for sure...

Oh why didn't I pick Yakubu? Why? Whyyyyyy?

posted by worldcup2002 at 10:48 AM on May 15, 2004

Wow, who woulda thunk he'd score 4?? I think he got me a european place in the other fantasy league though. Yay. Let's see how the final position stands.. I'm off to write a speech..

posted by Mossy at 11:00 AM on May 15, 2004

It's a close one between me and the Fooker. It looks like we both have a scorer each (Ameobi for me and Wright-Phillips for Fooker). But Buddha has a lock on #3, with two scorers: Ameobi and Zenden. Congrats, Buddha. However, it looks like I may actually beat Fooker by one place in both leagues. I've already pipped him for 10th spot in the other league! I'm #10! YEEEEEEAH!

Pip this, pal...

No offence to Mossy and the Ladyboy, but I am delighted to finish above my old pals wc2002 and starfucker, the chuffers had me worried! I raise a glass to the pair of them.

We'll see who'll be choking on his words after the Yahoo league is updated. I'll be posting that soon. Cheers to you, Buddha. And I'll raise a glass of sour grape juice to you, Fooker. Hoo hoo hoo.

Just a look back at a year ago, when I finished fifth. And, erm, somebody else didn't finish first.

I feel like Arsenal...

posted by Mossy at 06:21 PM on May 15, 2004

Ha. Here's a display cabinet full of trophies for you, Mossy. Which one do you like best?

posted by worldcup2002 at 06:49 PM on May 15, 2004

The one Spurs are gonna be picking up next season ^_~ Yeah, it's a replica. And? Let's wait to see the final scores..

posted by Mossy at 07:23 PM on May 15, 2004

Tottenham "who were only three places out of relegation" Spurs are going to pick up silverware of any kind next season? Why are Arsenal going to sell them Henry and Toure?

posted by billsaysthis at 08:35 PM on May 15, 2004

Hey, I did say replica.. We just need to sort out that whole 2-3 goal up nerves thing - if we hadn't had that, we'd be 7th..

posted by Mossy at 08:26 AM on May 16, 2004

Looks like I pulled it off. Top scorer of the week! Fourth place and only five points off third. I was closer than I thought. I hadn't noticed that I also had Vieira, who scored the final matchwinner for Arsenal this season. Man!

posted by worldcup2002 at 10:14 AM on May 16, 2004

I was wrong, I did manage the drop to 11th! Congrats to sauril for passing me by. Of course I was smart enought to sell Viera and buy Jamie Redknapp, so that helped.
