A win, a loss, a draw in our biggest week to date this season.


At least we did get to witness one good guy dominating this week, as Steakballer is just kicking himself for not having a bookie to get some money down on all the matches he picked right.

AStar and I really thought we'd had good weeks. THANKS FOR THE KICK IN THE BALLS THERE, STEAKBALLER.

CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Steakballer and yours truly picked The Fighting Mourinhos to specialize in failure, drawing to West Brom to the tune of 1-1 and three points.

CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: AndrewMain was the only one to wishfully pick Fulham to hold Liverpool. The lest of us pointed, laughed, and scored. (Insert joke about sex after marriage here.)

Philly37 WISHFUL THINKING PICK OF THE WEEK: So many choices! But Torvald Coolguy takes the honors by picking Arsenal 15-0 over Bayern. (He was actually really really close.)

My also-ran week was good for something, at least. Just goes to show you how much things can change in the span of a week or two. Come at me bros! And sisses!
