Season 3 Game 11 (25-28 Sep 2015)

THE ‘JIM ROYLE’S FILTH IS THE WEAKEST LINK’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Ricky Tomlinson (76), Irvine Welsh (57) and – wink – Anne Robinson (71!).

THE CATEGORIES

ZingerZinger
Howard
‘Alexis [Sanchez] is building a dynasty at Arsenal’
Chris ‘It’s a F.A.B. goal for Virgil [Van Dijk] at Southampton’
Barney ‘Elgin’s [Craig] Gunn – His aim is true’

He Shi*s GoalsHe Sh*ts Goals
Nothing for either [Graziano] Pelle of Southampton or [Jake]Jervis at Plymouth. However, the goalscoring behemoth formerly known as Moses Adebayo wishes to be titled Moses Emmanuel from hereon in and he got a couple for Bromley.

Reverse ChurchillReverse Churchill
Tony Pulis at West Brom’s exemplary halftime intervention: 2-0 up at half-time, but 2-3 down at full-time. Maybe he wasn’t wearing his lucky baseball cap…

Tony Craig's Oyster CardTony Craig’s Oyster Card
it’s a sorry state of affairs when this category tanks twice in a row. So here’s some nice music…

Fresh HellFresh Hell
It’s an unusual event for one match to make two separate categories but Tony Pulis surely welcomed his charges in with tea and biscuits and a good slapping after they shipped three goals in the second half against Everton to lose 2-3. Allegedly.

Claridge ClockClaridge Clock
Jermaine Easter at Bristol Rovers and Ben Strevens of Eastleigh just make the cut with 10 clubs each.

Where's Russell Martin?Where’s Russell Martin?
Rochdale fans will have thoroughly enjoyed that trip to Millwall to see their team get beaten 3-1. Approx 228 miles each way, approximately 8 hours travelling in total. Ouch.

Stealth GubStealth Gub
Barney
– called Southport v Grimsby Town at 0-3 on 31 min – Finished 0-4 – FAILED!
Howard
– called a tactical Stealth Gub at Manchester United, who were winning 2-0 at Sunderland on 43 minutes. It was all to save Dick Advocaat’s job, honerst!  The magic kind of worked, as the scoring stopped at 3-0, but a few weeks later, Dick resigned – FAILED!
Chris
– called Bromley v Chester at 2-0 on 37min – Finished 3-0 – FAILED!

Miscellany

Both Stenhousemuir and Southport’s player-coaches led from the front – in terms of being first back to the dressing rooms, as straight reds were handed out to Colin McMenamin and Gary Jones. Both for violent conduct too. Must be the pressure, Brian…
