Well, that was annoying.

Following the heated discussions on the Man Utd handball decision last Wednesday, I was rather glad I hadn’t seen Paul Tierney’s moment of nonsense live – thanks to another stunning failure of the train service North of King’s Cross. Instead, I listened to Jon Marks up to half time on my phone on a train from Sheffield (a journey featuring a frustratingly signal free zone around Worksop). I did watch MOTD on Sunday morning and WTF?

Anyway, where it all really matters it was another funny old week. We now have so few players left that any slip up could well prove fatal – as indeed it did. In this case, the slip ups were provided by Man Utd, Man City and Liverpool, goals being conceded in all cases costing our eliminated player a total of 19 points – in fact our goal at Man City cost 5 points on its own, which would’ve saved him.

And it was Cup week – the 5th Round, or Semi-finals to you. But, first, let’s deal with the normal stuff.

Week 30

And that’s Week 30 done and we have 7 going into Week 31 – and what a week, with just 5 matches taking place.
