The insanity of the Premier League holiday schedule is upon us. So I figured I'd get this out early, while we all wait for The Prodigal Bmasson11 to return from his spell at Alisher Usmanov's Fantasy Death Metal Camp. If nobody minds, I'll just keep plugging these out there until after the New Year (or until bmasson11 says so), because holy monkey are there lot of December matches.
Here is the link to the Week 12 report in all its Google Sheet glory. Dark green indicates 3 points, medium 2 points, and light green 1 point.
I'm still calling this all unofficial, but here are the standings as I have them:
|Captain Kirk 3||11||1|
THE PODIUM: Congratulations to Adnan for edging out hansdampf and to Sam5001 for edging out jellomon on exact picks. But mostly, congratulations to everyone for pulling their heads out of their asses and scoring some freaking POINTS this week.
CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Captain Kirk 3 knew that Cardiff was going to score a late equalizer to hold off a scrappy mid-table side named, apparently, Manchester United. How's that working out for you, being clever? Keep it up, riiiight up.
CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: jellomon liked West Ham to draw with Chelsea for some reason, so unlike the rest of us, failed to score any points on that match.
|Captain Kirk 3||96||10|
A little more separation at the top this week thanks to
me sucking eggs hansdampf being his usual astute scoreknowing self. But to me, there are a loooooot of weeks left, and it's still anybody's contest to win. Except for you, DJ Holm.

This one time, I had nine points from three matches. sluellwitz knows a thing or two about squad rotation for nonleague matches, though, so kudos to him. No IKTSCSBTSFI (royalty checks payable to me) action this week, on with your picks!
