Default EPL round 19

You now have the 10 matches the EPL will play just before Christmas. Then, there are 10 more around Boxing Day, yet to come.

So, bottom-dweller Crystal Place, having been unable to score a single goal in 10 consecutive away matches somehow beat mid-table Leicester 3-0, at Leicester. They play away to West Ham next. Which Crystal Palace team will show up: the one that was scoreless in 10 away matches in a row or the one that beat Leicester there, 3-0. We will soon know.

Regardless of matches and bets, Merry Christmas to all of you and yours!

Default EPL Round 20

In my last weekend send, I questioned how mid-table Leicester (with a large value bet) could possibly lose at home to a bottom table Crystal Palace team which had been scoreless in their last 10 away matches. The answer came on Tuesday. Leicester was obviously jogging through the Crystal Palace match to put priority on the quarter-final League cup match at home on Tuesday against top table Man City. Leicester took Man City to penalty kicks before losing. Then, on Saturday, Leicester entertained number two Man U, holding them to a 3-3 draw. The Crystal Place match was obviously of no interest to Leicester. That is what make the EPL so frustrating. Form (and logical betting) goes out the window when a team jogs through an EPL match to put priority on a trophy in the League Cup, FA Cup, Europa League and Champions League. I wish EPL teams would put a warning on games when they plan to lack any competitive interest whatsoever.

Also, 5 matches were drawn of 10 in round 19, indicating some fatigue and a resulting agreement to share the points.

In spite of that frustration, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!

Ray

Default EPL Round 21

Do you feel overworked once in a while? By 2 January, the EPL teams will have played 9 matches in about 38 days, about one match every 4 days. I am tired just thinking about it.

Happy New Year to all.

Default EPL Round 22, already

In soccer as in life, Christmas is the time for giving, especially when so many soccer matches are clustered. Giving in the EPL means playing a nice friendly, non aggressive draw (maybe 0-0). We had 5 draws in 9 EPL matches, 4 draws being 0-0 and one being 1-1. Top table, top scoring Man U and Man City both played nice in 0-0 draws, where form meant nothing, as when teams give up league points to win cup matches during congested fixtures.

Happy New Year to all as we check out 11 more EPL matches.

Default EPL Round 23

I have to agree with Pep Guardiola that the congested fixtures from late November through the New Year are tough on all the players. They finally do get a break. The next matches are to be played 13-15 January.

Good luck with Round 23 and have a great 2018. (I hope I have written 2018 on all my cheques.)

Default EPL Round 24

The teams finally got some rest. I got tired just tabulating how many matches they have played lately.

Good luck with round 24.
