Picker’s Diary – GameWeek...

I support a team that’s still in the hunt to get into the Premier League, but to be honest, I’m wondering if it’s worth it: the last few Premier League weeks seem to have turned into an insufferable drudge. But hey, last week I picked Leicester City to beat ‘drudge in human form’, Watford. So, […]
