Spofi EPL FFL: Week 8 update. If only a) the pool awarded bonus points for having a keeper taken off on a stretcher b) you could pick goalies by team rather than by player, then c) you'd have scored big with Chelsea this week.

I got my arse handed to me again this week. God damn it.

I scored 51 pts and that was just a bit above average for our league? And I didn't move? There's really no way I'm going to win this, is there?

posted by worldcup2002 at 09:23 PM on October 17, 2006

So I have my best week right just in time to share it with 13 others? Fantastic.

And I didn't move? There's really no way I'm going to win this, is there After Saturday, I was up about 7 places and ahead of you, WC2K2. Obviously I have a team of Eric Liddels, who won't play on Sundays, to reference a current FPP.

Ta, owlhouse. At least there's some justice left in this world. Ha!

Both my luck and my judgement are proving to be far more problematic this season than last. To remedy this situation I have taken to brandishing a lucky rabbit's foot and drinking even more than usual.

My keeper didn't even play. But it's ok, because the game subbed in my other keeper. Who also didn't play. So an annoying week, where I jumped Chico, (and didn't buy him dinner first) and still lost ground on our glorious leaders.

So I have my best week right just in time to share it with 13 others? Agreed. My best week led to a -4. Yay, moral victory!

This game is officially evil.

posted by YukonGold at 07:28 AM on October 18, 2006

On the bright side, when your captain doesn't play, he gets subbed out.

All of a sudden for some reason I need a cigarette, and I don't even smoke.

I hear ya, garfield. Good thing Ronny rested himself so he could be fresh for a second-rate Danish outfit in a meaningless group-stage Champions League game. And yet I record my best week ever and crack the weekly top 3 for the first time, thanks to a defence that includes bargain-basement Sheff Utd and Fulham wasters. Unsustainable...

Every week I say its time to get rid of Shevchenko and every week I say, you'll be sorry, he'll break out soon enough. And of course he doesn't. Arggghhhhh!

posted by billsaysthis at 06:54 PM on October 18, 2006

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I'll break the Top 10 this week. Commence trash-talking.

that is alot of teams to pass, wc. bold words. what you got up your sleeve?

He's going to insult everyone's sister and fly up the table in a slew of headbutt-related sendings off.

Two words: food poisoning.

Y'all won't be so smart-mouthed when I'm sat up in the elite levels laughing down at you. I fart in your general direction.

I'm hot! I'm crap, but I'm hot. I hate this game.

posted by Fat Buddha at 03:09 PM on October 20, 2006

Well, it hardly looks like I'll be moving up this Gameweek 9. I'll be lucky to even stay in 16th spot. Sigh.

Wow, I think I got whiplash from the speed of my prediction coming true! Bastardo!

posted by billsaysthis at 12:06 PM on October 21, 2006

Holy crap?! What a bad gameweek. Where's Ronaldo? Didn't Lampard assist on Shevchenko's goal?! WTF? Early season mojo is now officially absent.
