    I am under huge stress. You have a 109-110 pound team, while I remain on measly 104-105 pounds. This could make a huge difference! I also note that East Kent Albion has been shooting up the table almost as fast as West Bromwich Albion has been sinking. It's a formidable battle!

    I always seem to rally the second have of the season (just as West Brom always have a mid-year blip then start perorming again :D ).

    How is everyone doing in the league? I am struggling a bit at 3rd place with low team valuation to my closest competitors. Having big hopes for a high scoring game between Arsenal and Everton tonight since I will have 5 players in that game (Cazorla, Arteta, Jagielka, Osman, Fellaini). It is not over until it is over and maybe not even then.

    0-0. Fear I will be dropping further before this round is completed. :(

    I'm regretting captaining Carzola...

    I've not had a great few weeks, and was hoping that a big hit this week to reshape my team would pay off. Maybe it's better for the long run.

    Cazorla has had a brilliant season. I have had him in my team since week 1. It was a shame that Arsenal and Everton had a draw but Cazorla was not the worst choice as captain this round. I guess I am aiming at 2nd place, it seems too hard to get up to the top this year. Some lucky newbie is doing toooo well. :D

    It would be nice to get a Champions League spot, or even the Europa 5th, but I think my chances are about as good as West Brom's :)

    Had a good week but lost too many point early in the season. It's mid table mediocrity for me this year.

    I still fondly remember our fierce battle for glory two seasons ago. I am sure you will be back with a vengeance next season.

    One week to go. Top spot looks sealed, but plenty of competition for a top five finish.

    I have collapsed and expect to be viciously ridiculed.
    You have come back from the almost dead, MoK!! Good luck in your chase for the top.
    I hate this game but will return stronger next season.

    You could easily overtake me next week.

    The trouble with this dreadful game is tactics and skill will only get you so far - luck plays a huge role!

    Dear ManOfKent, will you set up a Fantasy Football league for 2013/14?
