Well that was an exciting first week of football (unless you are an Arsenal fan). Now that Mulligan Week is out of the way, it's time to get to the real competition. You did not have to participate in Week 1 in order to play this week. Anyone can start this week and nobody that chose incorrectly last week has been eliminated. All teams are available to everyone for selection this week. The Chelsea v Villa match on Wednesday this week that will not be included in the matches this week. Good luck to everyone, these picks count.
The rules are as follows: - Select a team from the matches listed each week. - Correctly selecting home wins, away wins, or away draws provide immunity to the next round...home losses, away losses and home draws result in elimination. - Each team may only be used once during the competition with the exception of the mulligan round. Teams used in the mulligan round are still available to be used once later in the contest. -Failure to pick a winner by the deadline each week will result in either the loss of a mulligan or elimination from the contest.
The following posters won a mulligan in week 1 that can be used later this season. BobLoblaw joey barton BleedPurpleGold bluebarracuda Wait For It...
