Season 8 Game 23 (19-22 Feb)

THE ‘Buffy’s Secrets & Lies – rated R’ HEAD-IN-HANDS LEAGUE
So named because of the weekend birthdays of Anthony Stewart Head (67), Mike Leigh (78) and Rihanna (33).

Nothing else called, so the usual punishment applies:
Howard: “Jamar’s team are not going to Loza this one”

The Dread Hand of Barney was not on call this week, which is possibly why Shane Long was allowed to score his first goal in over a year. Had it still been a category, it would have qualified for a ‘Bendtner!’. Bournemouth still lost 2-1 to Queen’s Park Rangers, so maybe there was a little demonic intervention.

Barney & Chris – didn’t call anything – FAILED!
– called Huddersfield Town v Swansea City at 4-1 on 55 min – Finished: 4-1 – FAILED!

Wiggy update – after Marlon Pack scored in Cardiff City’s game with Preston North End, Mr Stelling told the Soccer Saturday faithful: “Preston have been sent Pack-ing” [Cardiff won 4-0, by the way]. Has he been reading our Zingers section? We did that gag ages ago! And if so, how about a scriptwriting job, Sky TV?
He was on form, as later Charlie Brown scored for Milton Keynes Dons, the Great One said “MK Dons bought Charlie Brown from Chelsea. You know how much they paid for him? Peanuts!” [We can’t claim credit for that one]. MK beat Northampton Town 4-3.

Also – James Coppinger (40) scored in Fergie Time (90+12! – could this be a new category??), earning Doncaster Rovers a 3-3 draw with Hull City. Given that Hull were 3-1 up, this would certainly have qualified as a Reverse Churchill.
