11 rounds to go and Andy Gould is 98pts clear at the top. I've managed to squeeze into 2nd place and Lee is on a hot streak and has shot up to 3rd. Stephen is still in contention in 4th but Gareth has a lot on to make up a 200pt deficit to take his usual slot at the top.

Meanwhile in the also-rans category Goat has dropped into the bottom half and may even be in danger of being caught by a resurgent Gav, who has clambered off the bottom. Could there be any worse humiliation?  :D

200 points is out of sight, but Top 3 may still be within reach. Had a terrible run just before Xmas and have hardly recovered since; surprised Red Star didn't sack me!

I am very pleased to be off the bottom at least. Phew.

So, if you look at the squads of the two leaders, they're following very different strategies. Brendan, in second place, has spent a lot of money in defence and has a budget forward line; Andy, leading, has a back line from Poundland and a top-of-the-range strike force. I wouldn't call either squad well-balanced - to me they both look quite extreme versions of the strategies they represent. But it is obviously paying off, because it looks like one of these two is surely going to win the league.

The main reason for the cheapish forward line was that earlier in the season I had Aguero and Jesus who started a few games together early on and then Pep started to rotate them and then Jesus was injured so I switched to an expensive midfield which includes Salah and Sterling, two of the top 4 scorers in the Prem, plus Erikson, who is handy for assists and the odd goal. Barring disasters I think Andy has it sewn up tbh, a 100pt deficit won't be easy to overhaul.
