Overall ranking:173,810 out of 2,008,595
Bonanza - is there any other word that suitably describes my points haul this week? Seven goals plus assorted sundries, incredible. I'm now up to the giddy heights of second place and with our League leader still 34 points ahead of me this will probably be as good as it gets.
I'm faced with a stark reality: my multiple substitutions the other week really worked. To keep a sense of normality in my life I took Mark Noble out of the starting line-up and put Gary Cahill in, which ended up costing me three points but with so many scored this week I don't really care. Dare I stick with things as they are again? Tune in next week to find out!
Foster (Awful against City, will he keep his place when Van der Saar is fit?)
Cole (Goal and clean sheet)
Insua (Still playing, got an assist)
Vermaelen (Two goals and a clean sheet, he Vermay be my best singing. Do you see what I did there?)
Lampard (Another assist, still not many goals)
Fletcher (Two goals! To the tune of Love machine by Girls Aloud: "He's just a goal machine...")
Rooney (Yet another goal, justified my decision to make him captain by scoring one point more than Lampard)
Defoe (Missed an early chance, Chelsea not as generous as United the week before)
Bent (Another goal, thinking Darren "Nectar" Bent sounds pretty good)
