    Three Spurs players at home against a somewhat soft Chelsea defense and Son as my captain. One red card, to my captain, one yellow, and two goals conceded later, a grand total of zero points. Kepa CS the only result.

    Just as I planned it.

    If misery wants company, or if you find consolation in someone bungling it even worse, I moved the armband to Son from the hottest player in the league only to see Vardy score and get max bonus points yesterday and then I actually got -1 from my three Spurs. Your zero points looks really nice. To make it worse, i have Kepa's clean sheet sitting on the bench having opted for Gaza.

    And, to think how different the result would have been pre-VAR. VAR review of an attempted karate kick clearance results in a PK and yellow card, while a second VAR review of a frustrated kick out or two resulted in the red card that ended my day.

    Not a great week for a good many people in general, but VAR is having quite an effect.

    That went from a negative to a positive.

    Eriksen can assist Son and Moura all he wants. Maybe he'll stay past January.

    Honestly thought Ole would give Greenwood a run out. Apparently not. I'm not waiting on any miracle January transfers when a guy with 10 goals for the year already is available. I've been riding one horse all year and now he is likely out for a spell with a hammie. Hanging on a thread above relegation, although I hear that VSR is full of very fine folks.:D

    While my team has been stuck to the bottom of the table and I'm trying to claw my way out of the relegation spots, I do have two excellent goalkeepers who both put up solid scores every week. If anyone is interested in a trade, let me know.

    There is still a chance the game gets rescheduled to fall within this GW.

    Bad News for City Captains, both sides refuse to interrupt their vacations for doing you know... what they get paid to do

    https://www.fotmob.com/embed/news/6...5e416c02e563ca70e4000001.jpg?main_image=true&

    Side Note, another reason why Wilder is a proper dog's bollocks Gaffer, he said before it started, (not about City), it was nonsense to take a vacation mid-season, play the matches, that is what players are paid to do, fans, who make it all possible ain't all flying to Dubai for some Winter Sun

    Though now I am starting to worry he is too proper as they become the main challenger for a top 4 place:eek:

    just saw this and thought you might be hoping to stick with Richarlson's 13, and TAA will have a blinder while Mahrez gets a 30 second cameo
