Season 5 Game 22 (24-27 Nov)

THIS IS THE START OF A NEW AND EXCITING POST!

THE “these words are poison – ‘hello ladies'” HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Natasha Bedingfield (36), Rita Ora (27) and Stephen Merchant(43).

THE CATEGORIES

Zinger
Barney:
“[Chris} Zebrowski’s Going Straight onto the scoresheet” [Zebrowski was released last month after serving time for robbery and assault]
Chris: “{Jarrod} Bowen hits the bullseye for Hull CIty”
Howard: “[Alan] Taggart scored for Alloa Athletic. They’re being murdered!”

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
Macauley Bourne at Leyton Orient [DIDN’T PLAY], Nick Powell at Wigan Athletic [DIDN’T PLAY], Rory ‘The Plumber’ McAllister at Peterhead [NO GAME PLAYED BY PETERHEAD!] are this week’s cannon fodder [what a great game that was, incidentally…]. A clean sweep for our invisible entity!
