Go ahead and proofread thoroughly, because I sure as hell must've missed something or somebody this week.
Also, before I get on with it, I'll be in Italy April 15-30. I'm sure as hell not going to be bothered with IKTSing while traipsing around the Tuscan countryside, so I'll need some help with our game. I could lump a few gameweeks together in a mega-week before I take off, or someone could volunteer to man the ship until I get back. Let me know if you have any ideas in the comments or in your subject line or whatever.
Anywho, 1-0 to the Arsenal is a glorious thing, but if I ever have to watch this team soak up Spurs' pressure for 90-odd minutes again I think I'll just voluntarily commit myself to the state hospital instead. To the stuff, then.

THE PODIUM: unclf14 tied Adnan for top honors without using even a single vaginal euphemism! Congrats buddy, looks like you're clawing your way up to midtable week by week. AStar was third.
CLEVER PICK OF THE WEEK: Can calling a 0-0 between bottom dwellers Sunderland and Palace be clever, really? Philly37, YOU BET IT CAN!
CRISIS PICK OF THE WEEK: In honor of holding Tottenham scoreless ALL YEAR, I'm declaring this a crisis-free week. Plus, nobody did anything really stupid, anyway.
Philly37 WISHFUL THINKING PICK OF THE WEEK: Giving it to Captain Kirk, but 13-0 to the Arsenal seemed plausible after the first 90 seconds of the NLD, anyway.

sluellwitz is breathing down our necks a little more each week, it seems. But hansdampf and I are holding the rest of you off, for now. Eight weeks to go!

Nothing new to report until the FA Cup semi mid-April. Gonna take some bold picking from the challengers to rush past sluellwitz with only two possible games remaining.
So, another normal week, but then there's a whole midweek slate to follow, so I'll try and get a report up ASAP following these tilts:
