Game Week #30 Preview
DROPPED POINTS FOR ORMEROD SEES GAP TIGHTEN
As TFGers across the globe round the final corner and the finish line comes into focus, dropped points for leader Alex Ormerod in #GW29 means that only 4 points now separate places 1 to 6 in the TFG League.
Ormerod and current 5th placed Jeff Coleman were made to rue missed chances at Saint Mary’s as hosts Southampton were held by fellow-strugglers Stoke in perhaps one of the least entertaining matches of the season.
That meant that Steve Crosthwaite’s Farcelona could leapfrog his rivals into second place and he (along with 18 others) picked up 3 valuable points courtesy of Watford’s 1-0 victory over bottom placed West Brom who now seem certain to be boing boinging in the Championship next season.
Peter Harris is in third place after correctly predicting (along with 14 others) that Liverpool would have too much for Newcastle in the Saturday evening kick off on Merseyside.
This week’s TFG ‘Pick of the Week’ award once again goes to Olaonipekun Paul Junaid. He correctly predicted another Arsenal loss, this time at the hands of Brighton. Take notice Roland Marshman, this is Olaonipekun’s third ‘Pick of the Week’ award this year and all have come with so called lesser teams getting one over on Arsenal.
Looking ahead to Game Week #30 there’s slim pickings in terms of a home banker, with perhaps Chelsea the closest thing to a ‘cert’ entertaining Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge.
West Ham will have a point to prove against Burnley in the battle of the claret and blues, whilst Newcastle will hope to lift themselves out of the relegation dogfight (for another week at least) with a win over the inconsistent Southampton.
Game Week #30 kicks off on Saturday lunchtime when Man United host their North West rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime at 12:30. If you needed reminding, that will also be this week’s Game Week cut off time! When you’re ready to make your pick, head HERE to submit your selection.
Whoever you pick, good luck.
