The Pollard Fantasy League Cup - Week 25

Given my shocking performance last year, I decided to take a break for a year and enjoy Jurgen’s mentality monster Reds steamroll anything that stands in their way. Vicariously enjoying their success means I can be much more impartial when reviewing the movings and shakings in this year’s Pollard Cup (can we not change the name yet? I mean, he left Chatter 6 months ago and I never really liked him anyway).

I’m aiming to be more impartial than that Ref on Tuesday night who was as gullible when it came to Atletico’s playacting (can I say shithousing?), as Lisa P is when I submit a holiday request and say “yeah, I’ve got loads of annual leave left”.

Anyway… let’s crack on.

It’s a mightily close battle at the top of the table as Tom Pollard’s Blink-1 Eto’o gains a few points on the league leader SexDrugsCarltonCole managed by Austin Fraser’s Rich Williams. Both of which further a surely insurmountable lead over 3rd and 4th place.

Making up the European places, unlike Manchester City, we can see Shirley Smith gaining ground on Anthony Jenkinson’s rather rudely named Go FC Yourself… I, for one, am offended.

It’s a different story down at the bottom as our very own Saskia Whiting and Jason Clixby fight it out for the wooden spoon. I’d expect such a dismal performance from Jason given his footballing allegiances though…

In the middle of the table, languishing in nothingness but with excellent game weeks worth noting, we’ve got two of our longest serving Flockers in Dave Burley and Richard Hartley who produced 64 points and 85 points respectively. Given that the league leaders are averaging around 57 points  per week, this goes to show just how impressive they are.

So, as we go into a week where Liverpool can move to within 4 games of securing their 19th League Title and Everton still need to win 10 games to ensure they don’t finish 19th in the table, in the immortal words of our glorious and noble leader, Paul Ainley…. “It’s all still to play for”.

Hungry for more?

The Pollard Fantasy League Cup…is back!

With 100 long days since our last taste of Premier League football, you'd be hard pressed to remember who the top goalscorer is (Jamie Vardy), which side hasn't won since the turn of the year (Brighton); and the equally important question of where we've landed with the Pollard Cup.
