Well, that worked well, didn’t it? Two teams playing twice, and still Triple Captain to play.

Provided, of course, that you actually have any players from Spurs or West Ham and allowing for the fact that the undoubted favourite to be made Captain, didn’t actually play in the first game.  And then, of course, we’ve got Man City whose goalscoring machine was just bound to roll over a team that couldn’t even hold on to a lead against the bottom club – no, it’s OK, I’m over it, totally.  So, the smart play was Spurs defenders who kept a clean sheet in one and ought to have done in the other, giving 8 points trebled up to 24 – easy.

Not everyone was in a position to follow this through, though, as you shall see and points generally seemed to be quite hard to find:

So 17 players going into Week 23 which is, of course after we’ve all experienced the magic of the FA Cup.  I might take a banana for half-time, if only to ceremonially dispose of the skin.
