Week 12

Ole leaves with our sincerest thanks for his tireless efforts Manchester United statement after they sack manager Solskjaer.

As predicted Ole rides off into the sunset to keep up the statistics that every manager will be sacked before the end of the season! In case you want to bet on the next manager to leave, odds are Brendan Rodgers 5/2; Rafa Benitez 4/1 and Ralph Hasenhuttl at 5/1. Possibly of more interest is who is to take over at United as permanent manager; odds on at 4/6 is Mauricio Pochettino followed by Rodgers but if you want long odds Sam Allardyce is available at 250/1 or Neil Warnock at 500/1. The odds for Warnock are the same as Simon Cowell becoming Prime Minister or Father Dougal Maguire being elected as the next Pope. Moving from the ridiculous to the sublime Sam Herring takes over at the top there are now only eight managers within 50 points of our leader. Sam had the 2nd highest total of the week behind Adam Bremner whilst Paul Colburn was our low scorer.

1 Slumdog Mignolet Sam Herring 85 852
2 Don't Shoot Vinny Paul Cooksey 79 851
3 Lanzini'sLamborghini Joel Newman 84 837
4 Melvinho XI Melvin Pool 75 835
5 Desperate Means Kaia Means 78 827

Finally The overall leader is now on 930 points so Week 13 could see the first 1,000 points score posted.

Week 13

"I can’t see how it could go ahead the way the pitch is at the moment.” Sean Dyche after Burnley's match with Spurs snowed off.

In a week with no managerial sackings there is another set of fixtures starting tomorrow. Ronaldo was relegated to the bench as United drew with Chelsea, whilst the Manchester side announce that Ralf Rangnick will be their interim manager till the season's end. No change at all in our top five other than a slight shuffle. Rich tea for top scorer Edward Hargreaves "Tasty Biscuitmen" whilst Chris James was well past his sell by date with a new low score of 8,643,019th for the season keeping him in 135th and last place. Please note that entry to the League will be closed after Game Week 14.

1 Slumdog Mignolet Sam Herring 62 914
2 Don't Shoot Vinny Paul Cooksey 53 904
3 Melvinho XI Melvin Pool 62 897
4 Lanzini'sLamborghini Joel Newman 50 887
5 Desperate Means Kaia Means 56 883

Finally Not quite - the 1,000 point barrier wasn't broken - overall leader has 990 points.
