Gameweek XVI

The Walk On The Wild Side with the Dandy Highwayman’ Head-In-Hands League

So named to honour (or not) the birthdays of Adam Ant (59) and the passing of Lou Reed.

The Categories

ArrestedA bumper week for the ex-cons X1, with Jake Speight of Alfreton (Assault-and not informing his club or his loan club), Lee Hughes of Port Vale (Death by Dangerous Driving AND Assault), Chris Brown of Doncaster Rovers (Public Order, not to mention the sex tape scandal…oops…just did…) and Nile Ranger (Robbery, Drunk and Disorderly, multiple Assaults). It’s hard being a professional footballer…

Miscellany

Sunderland’s 2nd red card in their game at Hull came as a result of the additional time played for the first red card. An impressive display of self-destruction only marred by the lack of gub.

Kilmarnock have a David Silva. That’s a hell of a loan deal! It’s probably safe to assume this is not the same £24million man, though it probably beats benchwarming like the most of City’s legion of players…

Quickest sending off of the day goes to Robbie Willmott of Newport County (no strangers to red cards at the moment) – after just 3 minutes!

The Alex Ferguson Memorial Award *crosses fingers* goes to Barnet and Kidderminster Harriers for their ELEVEN MINUTES of extra time, which as it turned out to be not long enough for Kidderminster to get one back, but long enough for Barnet’s Luisma Villa to be sent off.

OVERALL RESULT: A CLEAR WINNER FOR CHARLTON – COMING INTO FORM AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME!
