Season 5 Game 28 (Boxing Day & 27 Dec 2017)

THIS IS THE START OF A NEW AND EXCITING POST!

THE ‘Hard times for the joker at spurs’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE

So named because of the weekend birthdays of Hayley Williams (28-who?!), Jared Leto (46-huh?!), and Tottingham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris (30-WHY WHY OH WHY…SPURS?!?).

THE CATEGORIES

Zinger
Barney:
Nothing
Chris: Nothing
Howard: Jordan Rhodes scores after quite a long goal drought – “JORDAN’S ALIVE!”

The Dread Hand Of BarneyThe Dread Hand of Barney
Cursed for Christmas Part II – starring: Sammie Szmodics at Colchester United (SCORED!), Lewis Grabban at Sunderland (DIDN’T PLAY) and Matty “You’re not a kid anymore” Godden at Stevenage (DIDN’T SCORE).
