It's another very short post this week as I'm rushed off my feet with Xmas plans / family commitments (and will be for the next few days). Things will get back to normal for Week 19 with a full Player Picks post with analysis - thanks for your patience in the mean time.
MANCHESTER UNITED v Wigan
LIVERPOOL v Blackburn
ARSENAL v Wolves
MANCHESTER CITY @ West Brom
CHELSEA v Fulham
NEWCASTLE @ Bolton
TOTTENHAM @ Norwich
Stoke v Aston Villa
Sunderland v Everton
Swansea v QPR
So Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal & Man City appear to have the pick of the match-ups, followed by Chelsea, Newcastle & Spurs. Here are the players ...
If I get the chance to add any players analysis tomorrow then I will do.
My current team: De Gea, Clark, Brown, Vermaelen, Gower, Drenthe, Silva, Nani, Adebayor, Aguero, Rooney
I'm considering ways to bring in Romeu, Meireles, Ramsey, Suarez & Sturridge but with so many of my team performing well at huge discounts it's difficult to change anything. I scored 121.5 points in Week 17, moving me in to the Top 500 for the first time this season ... a nice early present from Santa!
Merry Christmas to all our readers and thanks for all your support. It really has been the catalyst for Never Manage Alone starting so strongly and we're looking forward to the blog continuing to grow in 2012.
How did Week 17 go for you? How's your team shaping up for Week 18?
