September Rounds 7 and 8 Update

Firstly apologies for missing the weekly update blog for round 7, as mentioned previously baby was due and well, now baby is with us so i needed to dedicate some time there. Mother and baby are doing well so I can provide you with the updates you’ve no doubt been waiting for.

Round 7: 14th -17th

A quick update on round 7 – lets be honest it was so long ago i cannot remember what happened, apart from I made the perfect Substitutions – the 3 teams out lost and the 3 teams in won. We had a full round of fixtures and a decent goals return. Yeovil topped the charts thanks to a 6-0 drubbing away at Newport and they were the only team to score 5 or more that weekend.

September Round 4 – 21st-24th

Round 4 saw our first fixture postponement of the new season after a medical emergency at Barnsley (where they were hosting Burton) before kickoff. That leaves 57 games and another decent (if not spectacular) goals return.

No Surprise at the bottom after 2 poor rounds. 3 points separate the remaining 4 players at the bottom so a good weekend is needed to try and get out of that group.
