    Vmdlyh

    With an eternity to set our teams up, and only the Women's World Cup to entertain us over the summer (well done Lionesses!) I am sure each manager spent as many hours as I did, looking at fixtures, transfers, the newly promoted teams and managers and managed to put together a team guaranteed of at least 100 points for GW1, no? No, that wasn't quite the case...


    GW 1 results for the Head to Head League went a little something like this...


    Winnie and her wonderful Warriers defeated Will, and his brilliantly named Jota than the Sun (so long as you don't think his name is pronounced the same as Diogo from Wolves that is) 86-79. Close competition but I think McGinn's first goal in the Premier League got her the win she was aiming at, when looking at her team and wondering how many of her players are in my team.

    Tyrone's Abs (not the braking system of a car I assume) took on and battered Justin's Injury Prone FC (no Wiltshire or Carrol in your team tho) 68-52 another Salah captained team, but Rosie also put in Ndombole in her team knowing he would score against Villa on his debut 😠

    Mike and his Billesley Villans were victorious against Pablo's cubist... Wait, different name - Jack of the Net. Did your pun cost you Mr P? Changing team names after all these years!!? 86-63 and special mention to Mike's choice of Neal Maupay. Will we rue not making this deal happen in real life? 😪 He was on for a matter of minutes before his excellent debut goal

    Big Bo FC Managed by a prodical child absolutely obliterated Aston Liam 72-64 however, it must be said that choosing Harry Kane as your captain should not be allowed against the Villa and I will look at Harry's pocket money situation this week. Also, his room needs tidying and if he does it again I'll tell him his is intollerent to sugar and can't have sweets anymore 😠

    Bongo and his Sausage United were amazing, brilliant, perfect this week against Mr Average 95*-65 and credit to Lord Bongo putting in 3 Villa players in his team. Will the heart rule the head for the whole season I wonder?...

    Kirkley Krusaders edged out a determined Dazzy and his Barmy Army with the closest score of 81-79 bad luck Dazzy! It was Sterling who got the armband from Jesh and even tho Raheem had a goal ruled out for 3mm of his shoulder giving him emense advantage in his "offside goal" it was enough for 40 points for him being captained.

    Finally McGinn it to Win it basically obliterated our Australian friend, Ozstan Villa 77-42. Of course I had probably put all the players who scored this weekend in my team at some point in close season, just not at the same time!

    Congratulations to Bongo. You don't get a manager of the week award in VMDLYH not because it's you, but because the real competition is Rose's, and this is a pale imitation. So, no star but you do get this emoji 👍🏻

    I'll keep this post open for the rest of the head to heads. Fixtures will be up soon

    Great write up Sam. Thanks so much. Hope it doesn’t become too much of a burden. I was hoping a name change might put a bit more oomph into my side as the Masterpiece has run its course. Early signs are that nothing has changed.

    Great read Sam 💥

    I hoped nobody would notice Ndombele in my team. 🤪

    Anyway I am going to have to lose 4 points this week which is annoying but needs to be done with a tough match against Will and Jota than the Sun up next. 🤔

    Brilliant update, Sam! Made me laugh! That must have taken ages - thank you!

    Pleased to get 3 points in my Warriors first away match of the season. The newly promoted Jota than the Sun fans were in fine voice, and the team gave my boys a run for their money - a breath holding match!

    Looking forward to playing McGinn it to win it next week, although it will be slightly odd if we both have identical teams by then! Clearly it took Mc Ginn it to win it for me! Sam, I can't believe you didn't pick him after your inspiring team name choice (even though it was first up v Spurs! ) I did laugh when I saw your team sheet - just 3 different team members, I think, and if I'd gone with one of my alternative final drafts, it would have just been two! It feels weird not sitting next to you in the league but gives me someone else to chat to for a change

    Winesis, honestly 2 weeks ago my team was EXACTLY the same as yours. Scary really! But still, you aren't too far ahead and I like talking to Jota than the Sun.

    I had McGinn in my team up until 6pm on Friday. I thought he would get booked and be a liability in terms of Fantasy football.

    I've made 1 change for next week. DIOGO JOTA was a cart horse at the weekend so, expect him to bag a hatrick this weekend

    Nice one Sam. Who on earth is Mr Average? Just as well I won so a least I can say I'm above average. Great report Sam and kind comments about my incredible score this week.

    There's an uneven number of people in our league so each week someone has to outscore the average of the league Aka Mr Average 👍🏻

    Results for GW 2

    Winnie scraped a win against a hugely unlucky, but ever popular Jose. Probably referees to blame, VAR, weather, Xmas only 18 weeks away

    Warriors 50 McGinn it to Winnit 41

    Dazzy got a needed win this week as he edged out Ozstan Villa, 41 points to 38

    The mighty Sausage United continue their wild points accumulation without having taken a recommended 20 point hit. No hope for hapless Kirkley Krusaders beaten 63 points to 32.

    Big Bo FC were less than average, losing to (quite literally) the MEANEST team 41 to 30

    Pablo got his first head to head win with Jack of The Net beating Liam 46 to 30

    Tyrones ABS light was left on, failing his MOT and failing to outscore Jota than the Sun 43 to 35

    The highest score of the week came from Mike and his Billesley Villans, getting a collosal 69 points against Injury Prone FCs 47. I have to admit I felt a bit Pukki after deciding not to make that transfer last week....

    I have a feeling the Norwich striker is going to be the most purchased player this week.

    Next fixtures up soon

    Thanks Sam.



    The Abs performance is sadly lacking at present and what I find really disturbing I am below Mr Average in the league

    table.



    😱😨😰🤬

    Thanks for the update Sam. We’re lucky to have you. Nice to get my first three points. If Villa can do the same on Friday, I’ll be made up.

    I shall have to start calling you spooky Sam. We must have similar FL thought (or lack of thought ha ha) processes given we always seem to end up next to each other in the League! I'm sure you'll have caught me up (or I'll have dropped right down) before long so enjoy the more intelligent chatter of Wil, as opposed to my inane drivel while you can!

    As modest as ever, Bongo! Well done.

    Thanks again, Sam. I'm loving your updates - especially Tyrone's ABS!


    However, I enjoyed my Warriors beating you even more at home this week!

    Thanks for the kind words. I've played my wildcard this week, trying to catch the prise rises a little bit, and trying to move away from Winnies blueprint too. You need to change your password login details Winesis WINNIELUVSJACK4EVA is too obvious.


    This weeks fixtures are:

    Injury Prone XI v Winnies Warriors
    Jack of the Net v Jota than the Sun
    Big Bo FC v Tyrone's Abs
    Sausage United v Billesley Villans
    Dazzy's Barmy Army v Astonliam
    Mcginn it to Win it v Mr Average
    Ozstan Villa v Kirkley Krusaders

    Good luck everyone. Try to keep the scores down... Don't want to be too "mean"
