Everybody's favorite competitor reclaimed their rightful place atop the table this week at long last!

What, Arsenal? That's great and all, but I'm talking about ME, BITCHES!


Beyond that glorious good news, and FC IKTS making a fantastic last-minute January signing in unclf14, the week was notable for a lot of misses, thanks to upsets in Geordieland, Stoke, and the Mourhinigrini match. (It's fun to say. Try it!)

THE PODIUM: I narrowly held off PowderedDonut and T. Coolguy the best way I know how, by scoring early and then parking the bus.

CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Powdered Donut picked Stoke 2-1 over United. No, really! Click the spreadsheet link and see for yourself, I swear! The rest of us suffered.

CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: Scrupio was the only one who failed to score on Everton-Aston Villa, picking them to draw 1-1. I mean Everton always fucking draws 1-1, so you can see why he did it, but still.

Philly37 WISHFUL THINKING PICK OF THE WEEK: Goes to its namesake, who as an added bonus scored exactly the same number of points as the rest of us by picking a -21-all draw at the Etihad. Plus he's had an award named after him, what have you ever done?
