There is a loooong way to go and things change quickly. My problem is that I don't change my team quick enough. I'm maybe too loyal to players that started well.

That was ultimately Alf Ramsey's downfall as well.

There's money to play for in one of my other leagues, ffs. I quite like money.

You know what they say about the love of money...

Has HR been given another reprieve?

Asked this a week ago but no answer.

Banker bet this week is Man City to beat Burnley, so I've brought in Laporte.

Armband on Salah. Don't like captaining a player in the early kick-off, but there you go.

Playing 3-5-2 but expect Digne to come in for a rested Raphinha (who's been busy with Brazil), so more likely a 4-4-2.

Three bad weeks in a row for me, so need big score.

I chucked Pogba for Saka
Cue Pogbas best game of the season

But I've got 4 Million to spend so will carry on waiting to see who is the biggest waste of Money, Ronaldo or The Chelsea fella
And then maybe get a proper defence in

Nope I haven't worked out a proper strategy yet

Paul Merson and Tony Adams once told me that Stuart Pearce's birth name was Marigold.
So did Gazza.

I'm not sure why Horse would need a reprieve because all four players referenced here played in the PL, and the FPL in some form was running way back in the 90s when most if not all these players were still in the PL. So surely this is a post on Classic FPL, Horseradish is providing the posting equivalent ITV Football Classics which entertained us through the lockdown. Well done Horse.

Didn't notice the Torres injury until his price went down but now I've had to take a 4pt hit I've gambled on another City player, never wise with a fellow tinkerer at the helm, but the other games didn't inspire. A 30 second cameo in the 94th minute fully expected. Angy

Ron Flowers, Les Allen, Tony Hateley and Brian Clough. There, I've said it. (All had something in common of course.)

Off to Ascot now.

Nope. Do they say the same thing about the love of stuff that costs money? :P

I'm guessing all had sons who played for England - Tim, Clive, Mark and Nigel. But I'm not sure any played in the PL. Maybe Nigel, just.
