Well, that felt slightly better, didn't it? We all saw the Gunners we love, convincing and beautiful, beating Everton en route to a Wembley semifinal date. And our little game just keeps getting tighter and tighter at the top, on both the league and the cup fronts. And most importantly, THE IKTSCSBTSFI lives to play another week!

THE PODIUM: unclf14 rides the full benefit of his pottymouth to the top of the podium, as explained below. Adnan, silverace99, CK3, and hansdampf just didn't curse enough to make it happen. Pussies come in second, you vaginas.
CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: unclf14 picked a twats:cunts draw in this week's yawner between Norwich and Stoke, and goddamnit that's good enough to call a draw and give him a vital two points in his relegation battle. (I mean they are the same thing anatomically, right? I'm a doctor, I know these things!) If only he'd picked twat:cunt I'd have interpreted it as 1-1 and he'd have gotten the full three. Would I have done this if he'd been near the top of the table? YOU GO AHEAD AND GUESS.
CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: T.Coolguy went by the tried-and-true law of IKTS: "Everton always ties 1-1" but fortunately (in every other way possible) Arsenal told him to go fuck himself, and stormed the hell into Wembley. I almost named a new award in his honor this week, but the Torvald Coolguy You Heartless Bastard Why Don't You Just Go Root For Tottenham Pick Of The Week seemed too cumbersome a name. Plus I am only good for so many jokes per post, and coming up with one more a week from here on out was a bridge too far.
Philly37 WISHFUL THINKING PICK OF THE WEEK: Adnan Ilyas and the eponymous Philly37 thought we'd repeat our 2-0 Allianz victory of last year. C'est la vie.

There you have it, hansdampf reclaims his rightful spot atop the season standings with just a couple months left.

sluellwitz only got one point from two cup games to choose from, and we still couldn't pass him. He's really going to rub our noses in that one once he claims his imaginary trophy after a game or two in Wembley.
What's this, a normal slate of ten league games to pick? Culminating in Sunday afternoon's NLD, which is asure to liven up the weekly competition for the Philly37 award?
