Holy crap, you guys. More games. It's a wonder my Caps Lock key isn't broken yet. An even greater wonder: Arsenal on top at the halfway point. Greater still: more league points in 2013 than urrbody else. Screw your hyphenated 'season', the calendar year table is a trophy! We said it was!
Week 19 (Click it! You want to see the green! You NEED to see the green!)

THE PODIUM: sluellwitz scores the most un-cup-aided weekly points so far this year, and needed every last one of them to hold off silverace99 and jellomon. The top two scored in an amazing 9 of 10 league matches this week. Nobody had done better than 7 until now.
CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Everyone scored all the points (well, exceptSam5001), so everybody was clever. I'm giving it to Philly37 for his unending dedication to the craft in picking Stoke to beat Spuds 9-0.
CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: Sam5001 and yours truly liked the draw @ St. James Park. These stupid reverse jinx picks always bite you in the ass. ARSENAL 10-0 FROM NOW ON. But only if Bendtner starts.

Just like Arsenal's precarious position atop the league table, I am very, very frightened of a couple bad weeks resulting in elimination from European random-number-generating competition next season.
