"He comes from abroad and he's doing abroad things" Alan Mcinally's insightful verdict on Paolo Di Canio

HEADLINES - WEEK 27

Gareth Harley-Yeo and Mark Leonard close in on the two leaders - so exciting!

They'll be dancing in the streets of Street this lunchtime as Matthew Turner top scores with 78.

Utter garbage belongs to Adam Hunt with eleven, that's right eleven!

Mike Lamb consolidates his wooden spoon position - but the battle to avoid the plastic fork remains in the balance.

"I never comment on referees and I'm not going to break the habit of a lifetime for that prat". More carefully chosen words from Ron Atkinson

WEEK 28 HEADLINES

Andrew Harley accelerates away from Richard Pert, but there's more steel and chrome moving up in third.

It's a big 94 for top-scoring Peter Staneland - he's up six places to 10th.

It's a used Yorkshire Tea Bag for Ihor Lewyk with a grotty 17.

At the bottom the Monkey Dances the wooden spoon dance, whilst Matthew Turner continues his move away from the plastic fork position.

"Football today, it's like a game of chess. It's all about money." Hmmmm - some Geordie logic! Newcastle fan on the 606 phone-in on Radio 5 Live

WEEK 29 HEADLINES

It's all about the Harleys on top, with the Tractor boy the meat in the Sandwich.

In a poor week a smashing top score of 65 from Barry Redburn.

Guess Who is top of the weekly rubbish heap again......with a one! eins! un! unus! uno! yi! eke! ichi! wahid!

And still in the wooden spoon position it's Guess Who. Ivor Lewyk, Paul Waddingham, David Marshall and Charlie Linford battle to avoid the plastic fork.

"I was watching the Blackburn game on TV on Sunday when it flashed on the screen that George (Ndah) had scored in the first minute at Birmingham . My first reaction was to ring him up. Then I remembered he was out there playing." Ade Akinbiyi realises it's only chess players who carry mobile phones into matches

WEEK 30 HEADLINES

Andrew Harley loses ground in the title race as the top three become separated by just 47 points - anything could happen, but probably won't!

Top score this week goes to Eion Devane with a very nice 61.

Has to bubble burst! Andrew Harley takes the rubbish home with a very moderate 20.

At the bottom Mike Lamb is now 213 adrift of Paul Waddingham who has his hands on the plastic fork.

I'm amazed that I avoided the lowest score after having my goalkeeper sent off, my five defenders playing a total of 53 minutes (who would have predicted Carragher, Clichy, Harte & Ivanovic would have all been dropped) and two of my three highest scorers being on my bench :oops:

'I always used to put my right boot on first, and then obviously my right sock.' - Barry Venison (Aged 42¾)

WEEK 31 HEADLINES - You won't have to put up with this for much longer.

It's as-you-were at the top, but the Steel & Chrome now leads the Tractor Boy by just 14 points.

Barry Redburn scores a splendid 78 to take this week's top score.

Blimey - the toilet belongs to Mike Lamb again - he has a big collection!

At the bottom, the Bookies have already paid out on Mike Lamb, but the fight goes on to avoid the plastic fork with just one point separating Paul Waddingham and Ihor Lewyk.

"Steve McManaman once described Zinedine Zidane as ridiculous. You can't get a higher compliment than that." - Jason McAteer

WEEK 32 HEADLINES

The Tractor Boy just can't get on terms with the Harley, who accelerates 25 points clear.

Top score this week a cute 60 from Jim Friar.

The water closet is shared by Jono Graham and Matthew Turner with a piddly 18.

Paul Waddingham and Ihor Lewyk step up the fight to avoid the plastic fork, and drag Charlie Linford into the battle. Mike Lamb is so far adrift he has his own weather system.

I reckon that since I used my wildcard at the end of January, I've been top-scorer in the league. (Or at least top 3.)

I was able to base that on skill more than luck, by focussing on one particular statistic. It seems to me that the key to this game is to stay in touch until the January wildcard window. The first half of the season is much more of a lottery, because you don't have any data to work with.

"You need at least eight or nine men in a ten-man wall." from the Mark Lawrenson lecture on quantum football

WEEK 33 HEADLINES

Es ist immer noch Andrew Harley und Richard Pert kämpfen um den Titel.

Top score - a massive 95 - for Kevin Williamson, with the mighty Haddocks making 91.

In a high numbers week, James Friar's stinky 22 drops him in the recycling bin.

Ihor Lewyk looks stranded in the plastic fork position after Paul Waddingham stages a big revival.

HEADLINES - WEEK 34

It's no change among the top order, can the Harley beat the tractor?

Adam Hunt's 84 puts him top of the pile this week.

While it's bottom of the piles for Mike Lamb (again) with 24

Charlie Linford gets dragged into the plastic fork battle - just 18 points ahead of Ihor Lewyk

HEADLINES - WEEK 35

Two weeks to go and it's so, so, close at the top, with just seven points between our leaders.

Mark Leonard's 83 tops the chart this week and puts him within kicking distance of the big two.

You know what? I think Mike Lamb has given up - he comes up with another load of junk.

Ihor Lewyk holds on to the plastic fork position thrilling!

"What do you think of Manchester United's three Rs - Rooney, Ronaldo and van Nistelrooy?" Rob McCaffrey


WEEK 36 HEADLINES (Only two weeks to go (after a recount!))

The Steel and Chrome race on while the Tractor has a slow puncture. Mark Leonard is hoping for snookers.

A massive 98 from Hendrik Hoffmann leads this week's scoring.

A putrid 30 from Nigel Wright's Inter Yaman goes straight in the garbage can.

At the bottom it looks like Ihor Lewyk will claim the plastic fork, while Mike Lamb combines everything that Barnet and Aldershot offer.
