“Sweetness & Light”: Did you watch “The Shield”? Y’know, the cop series that was the tasty bite-size burger to the Kobe steak that was “The Wire”? Vic Mackey was ace wasn’t he! The slippery anti-hero you couldn’t help but love and only surpassed by Tony Soprano, Omar Little & maybe even Jesse Pinkman in terms of stealing all the scenes they were in. Yeah!
What about Shane Vendrell though? You had to love him too in that American take on cheeky chappie, jack-the-lad recklessness designed to undo the narrative arc of the show. Then he went really maverick, unhinged, risible, selfish & downright evil (he threw a hand grenade in his best mate’s car ffs!). Ugh! All portrayed by the genius of Walton Goggins.
We haven’t got a Walton. Or a Goggins. But we do have David Goggin 39 (6) whose genius was to win this week’s £20! David had Michael Keane’s 93rd minute strike to thank as he shielded off (see what I did there?) Kate H & Tony M to serve up some rough justice…well done mi Gooner amigo!
Come back here for more tenuous links in the coming weeks folks!
“Out Of Control”: From the sublime to the totes ridic very much akin to his team this season or even Christian B’s Premiership career so far.
What a difference a week makes for Mark Seels 8 (0) who goes from darling to dimlo and is now the scourge of “The Syndicate” as he clocks in with the only single digit return in Week 8…
That collar bone still playing you up Seelsy??!

Seven came good with Aston Villa 0-4 Chelsea
5 just knew Wolves v Ipswich would be goalless
Four somehow guessed Partick’s 0-0 draw with Kilmarnock
4 somehow guessed Swansea’s 2-2 draw at Stoke
Will O, Arthur H & Francesca F just knew Palace would secure a Desmond at the Boleyn
Jon T got a tasty Charlton 1 Birmingham 1
Dave C should be ashamed he got 8 points thanks to a Theo last kick of the game goal
However, this week’s best correct score goes to Alex Rossi for his beside-the-seaside inspired, Bournemouth 0 Man City 4.
