A couple of managers getting rough treatment this week…

Nathan Blake and Danny Gabbidon have both administered a size nine into Cardiff manager Neil Warnock this week. Suggesting that players have lost faith in him following three defeats on the spin.

I wonder what losing the opening five matches of the season did for Warnock’s faith in his players. And the nine in 13 in between. And if you think that’s rich…

The talk is that Ole Gunnar Solsljaer is finally going to get the gig at Man United. On half the money that Jose Mourinho was on. Yes, half. 

Eyes down, ladies.


Total Pts

GW 29 Pts

Alisson (LIV)






Robertson (LIV)



van Dijk (LIV)



Alonso (CHE)



Luis (CHE)






Salah (LIV)



Sterling (MC)



Hazard (CHE)



Mane (LIV)






Aguero (MC)



Aubameyang (ARS)




Lookey, lookey. Same, same. Well, not quite. But very similar…

Hero two zero…

Chelsea defenders Alonso and Luis don’t even have to score to keep their places in the back four. Although zip wasn’t the lowest score last weekend…

Van Dijk was top man with 8pts. Doing his chances of landing the PFA Player of the Year award no harm at all.

Pog no longer the Mane man…

Pogba has missed all the fun this week. Suspended from the Champions League miracle in midweek and pushed out of our selection by Mane. He’s looked like Norman Wisdom (look him up, eyes roll…) in the last few I’ve watched, but you can’t argue with six goals in seven, I s’pose. 

An AA meeting up top…

Up top it’s an A+ for Aguero, taking top spot after eight in six. And an A minus for Aubameyang, who managed to register in the negative in the north London derby last weekend. Cor blimey.

The Watch List: I got five on it

If you haven’t got, or can’t get, or don’t fancy any of the above – this lot are handy alternatives. 

GK: Ederson (MC) – this ugly bleeder is back in the picture. 
DEF: Alexander-Arnold (LIV) – creeping up on the Chelsea pair.
MID: Pogba (MU) – will be back in the thick of it at Arsenal.
FOR: Rashford (MU) – Has come of age in the last few months. Bless.
FOR: Kane (TOT) – The man in midweek. And most likely this weekend.  

That’s how it looks from here.

The planned football career that would allow Matt to spend every afternoon in the bookies was cut mercifully short. So he was able to spend his mornings there too.

But rather than spunk his (sweet) FA pension on a day-tripper to Palookaville, Matt played smart. He watched, he listened. Learned his trade and earned a reputation.

But the bookies don’t like a winner...

First they closed his accounts. Then they tried legal action to shut down his tipping services. Now they employ him.
