TROYES (kaz) 45 beat MARSEILLE (Gervinho’s Forehead) 43

Lateriser moves up to 7th in the table after this win of Coldplay, who started the week in 2nd but who had a nightmare week, despite having 2 free transfers.

ST. ETIENNE (Chrissy Waddle) 43 beat PSG (Super Zlatan) 35
Chrissy Waddle got away with having Bale as captain by virtue of his choices of RVP, Santi and Foster. Super Zlatan’s recent good run came to an end, as RVP(C) had no real support, a bit like Arsenal last season…
LYON (FC Borecelona) 42 beat BASTIA (Beavis) 34
A somewhat jammy win for FCB in a low-scoring match. Both managers captained Bale, but Beavis’s forward line of Jelavic, Ba and Aguero gave him just 4 points between them, half RVP’s score. FCB has now gone to 2nd in the table, in a good position for a Champions League place..
