View from the BaDMaN Boot Room – GW 36

Getting good now, isn’t it? The Premier League I mean. 

Mostly I’m enjoying the fact that Liverpool could get 97pts and finish runners-up. In which case Klopp will have to go. 

But I happen to think that his job could be saved by Sean Dyche and Burnley. I reckon they will wrestle a draw out of Man City, which will decide the title. 

There. I said it.

Then suddenly, there is a change…

As New York taxi driver Travis Bickle once said. The change he was referring to was in his mental state. He later went on a shooting spree. I, on the other hand, am talking about Fantasy League defenders.

You talkin’ to me…? 

Terrance Trent Alexander-Arnold and Aymeric ‘shut the back’ Laporte have both made a late bolt for the Dream Team finish line. Racking up 26pts between them to boot out the Chelsea trio of Luis, Azpilicueta and Alonso. (I know there were only two places available and that’s three players, but those in the know will be aware they have chopped and changed over the last couple of weeks. So trio it is, right?)

You talkin’ to me…?

But that’s as choppy and changey as it has got this week. Nothing will change in the midfield – Pogba is fifth on the list, a full 26pts behind Mane. And his head seems to already be in Madrid or Barcelona. Makes a change from up his own arse though.

And the double A-cup duo of Aguero and Aubameyang only need a goal or two more to be sharing the Dream Team bra come final day. 

Then who the hell else are you talkin’ to?
