Midweek round up
The studio team are obviously excited to get Season Two under way, a lot of footballing talent on display there, and Phil Thompson. Not only a group of great players but a night out to remember, in their day as well.
A couple of early kick offs that have hinted at a really tight battle for supremacy in the top flight this season. The Low Countries put aside their worries over vaccine efficacy and supply to concentrate on something really important, Pixel Golf Football. Ajax and the Diddymen hit the ground running and could not be separated, sharing the points with impressive -46 and -44 totals for their weeks. A similar result at Anfield where Liverpool held West Ham but the quality of play from both sides suggests they will be in the mix come the business end of the season.
Elsewhere, Burton have carried on where they left off Season One and hold a comfortable lead over newcomers Barcelona, 2-0 at half time. Cassino Calcio have recaptured their early season form and hold a similar advantage over Aston Villa. The Orlando Pirates are tied at the break with Man United and it literally could go either way or even be a draw according to Kammy.
Two early matches as well in the lower tier. Coventry City have dashed the hopes of Chelsea in terms of a winning start to life in the PGFL. Not so much hopes dashed as ripped from their chest and rubbed in their face as the Sky Blues romped home 4-0. Down on the South Island, the Dragons saw off a woeful East Fife side to chalk up a debut victory 3-1 and they will hope to carry that momentum into next week's visit to the Garden of England, well Herne Bay at least.
Last week it was almost impossible to tear Celtic and Bristol City apart from one another. No change this week as they go into the last twenty minutes all-square and everything to play for. It is unlikely that Eric Perego will be getting an invite to the Northampton Town socially distanced Christmas Party this year. His fiendish design of hole 14 has allowed the Finnish minnows HyPS to jump out into a 2-0 halt time lead.
Tranmere may possibly be distracted by other much bigger competitions going on in the Pixel Golf world this week, but Herne Bay may find themselves recreating one of Scotland's simplest victories back on 9th October 1996 in World Cup qualifying European Group 4 between the national teams of Estonia and Scotland. The match was abandoned after three seconds because the Estonian team were absent from the Kadrioru Stadium due to a dispute over its floodlights.
There's only one team in Birkenhead! to misquote the Tartan Army from that day, 25 years ago, 'One team in Tallinn, there's only one team in Tallinn...'
