Ed: It’s getting to the point where I need a disclaimer…anyway… off you go Jack

 

It’s true, my ideas for the weekly roundup are inspired by popular culture – thank you for noticing. Sourced from only the best material I can conjure using pure creativity to blend not only the hard facts you all desire from this article, but also the YIRMA wit which you’ve come to expect from Ryan & Co.

On that…following last week’s YIRMAnia which was an instant classic we’ve this week taken a look at the current UK FPL Top 10 Charts to see just how the Premier League lads are doing following GW6. Who’s top of the charts? Who’s had shocker?

Most importantly, who wants to see Jurgen Klopp’s face stuck on top of Tina Turner’s body? Need I say more…

————-

  1. Westlife ft. Bournemouth – Coast to Coast

We kick off the charts at #10 where Callum Wilson and the boys enjoyed a lovely trip to the coastal town of Southampton. In this, the lads break down the Saints with three inspired goals. Rumours circulating around Bournemouth this week suggest that Eddie Howe is looking to go solo in the coming years, he has undoubtedly the best voice out of the lot (barring David Brooks near angelic chords as a result of being 12 years old).

 

  1. Take That ft. Leicester: Comeback for Good

At #9 we have the Leicester lot who this week produced an inspired comeback against a lackluster Spurs side. A shock result for some, but Rodgers is pretty adamant that he can see European football in his side’s near future – currently sitting 3rd in the league table and host the terrible Newcastle next.

 

  1. Sean Dyche ft. Pitbull: Don’t Stop the Party

A surprise entry at #8 this week, In what can only be described as the best collaboration since Blue joined forces with Elton John back in 2002 – Sean Dyche put on his best flairs as he rocked the dancefloor this weekend with Pitbull. Determined the stop the Pukki Party, Dyche used his Wood with full effect to simmer Pukki for one week only as Burnley took all 3 points from the in-form Norwich. I know, I know, ever since I mentioned that Elton John banger you wanted to listen to it immediately (Here’s the link).

  1. Johnny Lundstram: Hurt

This wasn’t a fine week for FPL veterans. Sure, we knew Lundstram was a shrewd pick but away to Everton? Not worth the punt. But ol’ Johnny boy had other plans didn’t he. Causing hurt for most this week as we had to watch him, sat there in our 3rd substitute position just gloating, prancing around the subs bench with his 12 points in pocket. Hurt for many, few only saved by the exclusion of Sterling from the City game which auto-subbed Lundstram into the starting 11.

  1. Pep Guardiola (PEPS): 5, 6, 7, 8

Dear god how beautiful is that artwork below? It’s as if it was meant to be, right? Pep can’t do no wrong this week. After the almost humiliating showing at the Pukki Party where he was carried out to the taxi at 1am crying about how “the internet” hates him for how he picks his team selection each week – he took a leaf out of global superstars Blazin’ Squad’s book and Flip Reversed his team. 8 goals and a happy Pep once again. The FPL world is correct once more.

 

  1. Steve Bruce: Bad

Brucie in at #5 with his black & white Newcastle side’s clash with Brighton which was anything but a thriller, another part of me however was chuffed with the clean sheet at least. There’s not much to say about this really, nothing to scream about…If you’re cringing about how I have jammed so many MJ hits into this paragraph, you are not alone.

  1. Roy & Nuno: 2 Become 1

You can imagine Roy Hodgson just partying away into the night with Nuno can’t you? Roy, several bitters in and starting to eyeball everyone wearing trainers and Nuno just sat there aggressively grasping his Old Fashioned whist several young females decide whether he’s the “bad boy” they’re looking for or not. Anyway, I digress, Roy & Nuno’s Palace & Wolves respectively were inseparable over the weekend, taking a point a piece away which seemed fair. (The girls noticed Roy was with Nuno and decided not to approach in the end as he was giving off a weird “vibe”).

 

  1. Ole Gunner Solskjaer: Against All Odds

Ironically the only time Ole will be as high as #3 in anything this season, his latest attempt at success was actually what many are calling his worst game yet. But plucky as he is, he’s determined to push through with his “new” mentality with the United squad backed by the ever mentioned Ed Woodward who by all accounts is currently looking to end Phil Jones life as a result of “banter” in the stands. West Ham are 5th in the Premier League, Man United look all out of sorts and it’s not going to get any easier for them with the fixture pileup incoming.

 

  1. Mr Emery: Broken Wins

Of course a win IS a win, 3 points in the bag for Arsenal – but Emery is a lucky man this week. Playing the entire second half of the match against Villa with just 10 men you’d have asked for no better than a draw out of the Gunners. But to their credit, they kept pushing and got the result they arguably didn’t deserve.

 

 

  1. Jurgen: Simply The Best

There could only be one person at #1 this week, that is newly crowned FIFA Best Coach in the world Jurgen Klopp. His sides biggest test of the season came when they travelled to Chelsea in what was a brilliant match. The only challenge for Liverpool it seems is Pep’s City, who meet on November 10th at Anfield which could be an extremely important match in the early stages of the season. You’ve not even read to this point, have you? Your eyes were drawn to Jurgen below weren’t they. It’s ok, I understand.
