All ready in case anyone wants Swansea (playing tonight)

The winner, who will be awarded Steve right's to the CDB 3 prize, is the
a) Last left with points for their selected club
b) but if tied, one with most surviving points at season end
c) but if still damn well tied, one whose team has the highest place in respective league
d) and if still sodding well tied, then Steve will toss a coin or summat to decide

Leeds and Man U playing this weekend ahead of the full season start on the 17th

Calamity!

Laurent Koscielny has not had a good few minutes. Moments after giving away a debateable penalty - for which he was booked - the Frenchman sees his second yellow for a rash challenge on Andreas Weimann

No, on a whim had to go and search for that one.  Thought the opening calamity needed a bit of special treatment

The way the Swansea:United game is going they'll be another one later

so it may turn out to be.

Or maybe we'll see someone lose the compo on a sending off in the last minute of the season
