You thought you'd gotten a lump of coal in your stocking, but you actually got LUKAS FREAKING PODOLSKI. Oh, and you get the chance to use your random number generators again, because here comes yet another slate of Premier League matches!
Week 18 (This is still a link to the Google Sheet)
|Captain Kirk 3||9||1|
THE PODIUM: Philly37 finished strong with 3 points from Man City - Liverpool, and took top weekly honors. Captain Kirk 3 continues his run of interstellar (PUN ALERT) form, and Sam5001 rides his clever pick to third place.
CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Goes to Sam5001, who picked up two points from Fulham's victory over Norwich, thereby proving his superiority to the 5000 Sams that came before him. SUCK IT FIVE THOUSAND SAMS.
CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: SteakBaller liked Hull to draw that plucky midtable side from Manchester, but those up-and-comers have the Europa League in their sights, pulled out a 3-2 victory, and left SteakBaller with nothing. hansdampf gets honorable mention for picking Pool to draw Man City, conceding the rest of us a point or three en route to lengthening his lead at the top.
