I’ve always been against video replay, but if it increases the chances of us actually getting a penalty, what is one to do?

Not an issue here in fantasy land, of course, although having an experienced voice in my head telling me “What are you doing? Brighton are on a great run.” or similar might help a bit – especially if it drowns out the voice saying “Deeney’s on a roll now.  And he’s only £6.3m!  Buy Deeney!”.  That being the voice I’ve just listened to.  He didn’t speak loud enough for me actually select Troy this week – I’m not a complete idiot.

However, neither of you are here to read about my inability to pick a high scoring team, are you? You’re here to read about other people’s inability to pick a high scoring team. And who am I to disappoint you?

Here you go:

Week 23
