Game Week 31
DEPLETED FIXTURE LIST MAKES FOR DULL WEEKEND
Norwich City’s unlikely point at home to title chasing Manchester City was the only real highlight of GW30, where a depleted fixture list (due to the FA Cup) meant that there were few shocks to report from a relatively unexciting weekend of ‘action’.
Rich Le Cras was 1 of just 6 TFGers to go with Leicester; who overcame a more resilient and robust looking Newcastle United at the King Power on Monday night. Those 3 points mean Le Cras maintains top spot as the title run moves a step closer.
Second placed Alex Smith was among the 50 (yes fifty!) TFGers that picked (or forgot and consequently got) Bournemouth. Subsequently, he leapfrogged Chris ‘Steveo’ Greenwood in the table, leaving Chris to hope that Man Utd triumph over Crystal Palace when their rearranged fixture takes place on April 20th.
In a Game Week of few fixtures, the coveted TFG ‘Pick of the Week’ award for GW30 goes to Jamie Hubbard – who was the only TFGer to pick Southampton to win at Stoke. Well done Jamie – that’s some crystal ball you have!

Looking forward to GW31, Swansea will no doubt be picking up plenty of picks as they face bottom side Aston Villa at The Liberty Stadium.
Spurs will hope to keep up their title challenge momentum when they host Bournemouth at the Lane, whilst West Brom and Watford will be hoping to continue their own good form with home games against Norwich and Stoke respectively.
Elsewhere, people might need to use up their remaining Newcastle or Sunderland picks – and that’s the joy of TFG, games that you might otherwise have absolutely no vested interest in usually, suddenly become massively significant.
Remember, each Game Week begins when the first match of the Game Week kicks off. This week, that’s the Everton vs. Arsenal match at 12:45 on Saturday lunchtime.

There’s nothing left to do now but pray.
