  1. So, that's Gameweek 5 done and dusted and my supposedly strongest club never even showed up . . . Man City, of course, although they did bag me a few points, so I mustn't grumble. What is looking good now though, is the 3-way battle for top with only 21 points separating them. 'All to play for', as we expert pundits say (:-) Gameweek 1 2 3 4 5 total 1 Athletico Pathetico 90 78 75 80 60 383 2 Pasar Rebo FC 100 64 79 73 59 375 3 As Above So Below 112 73 54 65 58 362 4 ILL-Tempered SeaBass 94 70 68 62 55 349 5 Inter MiNan 89 54 73 52 64 332 6 Maximum characters 67 46 67 42 54 276 7 Oi Oi Team 51 61 67 41 55 275 8 Tottenham Krian 65 41 60 33 58 257 9 Wonnaplay Wednesday 44 38 55 73 40 250 10 Milly puzzy kat 40 43 50 57 44 234 11 The vikings 60 38 39 36 51 224 12 Rawai FC 35 47 44 34 30 190 13 Guangxi United 39 26 26 27 35 153 GWs with transfer penalties
  2. RIP Greavesy . . . a truly legendary goal-scorer.
  3. Yes, why is it that The Toon fans have always been among the most difficult to satisfy, when everything else about the club is so positive-sounding: a famously welcoming and vibrant city, one of the best stadiums in SJP and, more often than not, a manager who's come to the club with more than a modest track-record, on a committed mission to see them thro' one sticky patch or another. Why is it that Toon fans seem unable to empathise with their 'poor' manager's uphill struggle? If they're not careful, their club is going to be viewed as the poisoned chalice by future prospective managers, IMO, that is. Catch ya later!
  4. After reading the BBC match review, sounds like Brucie's battle with the fans hasn't eased any, despite The Toon's occasional flashes of grandeur - S-M's for example, that has given WW a 2-pt lead . . . until tonight's shit hits the fan. And, good luck with Toney . . . sort of (:-)
  5. Gameweek 5 now less than 12-hrs away and, as much as it goes against my normally modest grain, I have a slightly cocky feeling that WW are going to shine, this time around. Good luck, all . . . well, sort of! Cheers! KC
  6. Yes, tell me about it! Exactly the same for me; AZ 2nd jab at 9AM Monday, OK till lunchtime but then my 48-hrs of zombie-ism started. After a paracetamol-assisted sleep, I spent all yesterday, like you, lying on the bed and slept little better, last night. Still groggy this morning, I managed to make myself submit that exciting ant encounter topic (Expat chat/ weird thoughts) and by lunchtime I was good to go again. A very strange after-effect, though, and certainly not bad enough to complain about. Cheers! KC
  7. A superb roundup for GW4 @BigHewer and such modest praise for Pasar Rebo, too! I can see you and Ath-Path having a real battle as the season extends. You don't, by any chance, do the behind the scenes stats work for the BBC's live text commentaries, do you? Not having TV, that's what I must rely on for my weekend excitement . . . just asking (:-)
  8. Mornin' all! After the almost goalless - except for United and Chelsea - Saturday evening, things did liven up a little with both Merseyside clubs bagging 3 goals apiece. And, just as I suspected, our new member, Athletico Pathetico, has stamped his presence by adding to his GW 1-3 tally with another impressive top spot, this weekend. Is there any hope for us lesser mortals putting the reins on this guy? Here are the scores on the doors for Gameweek 4 . . . Gameweek 1 2 3 4 total 1 Athletico Pathetico 90 78 75 80 323 2 Pasar Rebo FC 100 64 79 73 316 3 As Above So Below 112 73 54 65 304 4 ILL-Tempered SeaBass 94 70 68 62 294 5 Inter MiNan 89 54 73 52 268 6 Maximum characters 67 46 67 42 222 7 Oi Oi Team 51 61 67 41 220 8 Wonnaplay Wednesday 44 38 55 73 210 9 Tottenham Krian 65 41 60 33 199 10 Milly puzzy kat 40 43 50 57 190 11 The vikings 60 38 39 36 173 12 Rawai FC 35 47 44 34 160 13 Guangxi United 39 26 26 27 118 GWs with transfer penalties Of note for GW 4 is that 4 of the 13 member teams made additional transfers which took their scores down a peg, as shown in red.
  9. Fair question. The ball's in your court, now, @Soidog. . . . tough question, I reckon (:-) And the best of British, including Leeds, who Liverpool will marbleise, this evening. Cheers to both of you! KC
  10. 'Now, Craig!', as they say in the NE, or 'Now then, Craig!', as we civilised Lancastrians say, have you spotted the newcomer to 'your' FPLeague? Yes, my FFLeague website is now showing new member, #13, by the name of Athletico Pathetico and his 20-21 season pts score, if I'm not mistaken, puts him at #2 in the rankings at the season-start . . . hmm, could be an interesting addition! (:-) I just hope that my weekly update table can fit him on! Cheers KC
  11. Jeeze, that does look like the apocalypse! Just steady rain started half-an-hour ago, here in NE Isan. Stay safe!
  12. Good to hear you were one of the lucky ones who had a good vax experience, but there are still too many tales of woe. And sorry I missed your debut post, last week, but many thanks for that!

  14. Hi, @Stardust! Just open a new post in the yacht hub thread and copy/paste this text into it. If any diffs there, just open the new post with my @King Cottonmention and I'll do the text transfer before deleting this post. Cheers! KC
  15. Those 2 closing Q's are what everyone would like answering . . . so much ambiguity presently. And your debut post, too, so many thanks for that!

  16. Excellent post and, being in the same age-boat as you @farang, I fully empathise with your perceived wisdom of the Thai visitor protocols including an 'Insurance fee'. What a great idea which, sadly, will never even be contemplated, let alone adopted.
  17. Yes, that closing question is fundamental, not merely to the 'rights' issue but to the wider quality-of-life issue, too. And this, your debut post, too, so many thanks for that!

  19. Sadly, one of the most widely-held views on the forum. Less sad, though, is that it's your debut post, so thanks for that!

  21. Same-same, our way, a little further east from UT. And apologies due for me missing your debut post, last month, but thanks anyway!

  22. Great post and no surprise that the immunity debate rumbles on. Let's hope your 'tomorrow' will bring a 'gone' to everything Covid-related. And this, your debut post, too, so thanks for that!
