After all that helter-skelter, hold-onto-your-hats welter of movement in previous weeks, this week’s mini-league table bears a remarkable resemblance to last week’s offering. If this were World War I (which it’s not, though it felt a bit like that at Comment Moderation HQ tonight), it would appear that we’ve now reached the Marne and the shovels have just been produced.
The top five are the same as last week (with some minor movement in position) and there’s only one change in the top ten. MickC has tightened his grip on top spot and, a bit like Cork for the NFL, he seems to be short odds for this particular title with just two rounds and the final itself to go.
I’ve made a bit of a burst up from ninth last week to sixth but I’m not entertaining any hopes of winning the thing. That’s not just me doing a Johnno-style lowering of expectations: I’m almost 150 points off the pace, for feck’s sake, so I think, like the Kerrymen, I’ll have to forget about the league and concentrate on the summer football instead.
