GW20 FPL #JackInTheBox

We just did this a couple of days ago, right?  Yes, right.  If you missed last week's #JackInTheBox comp, we had a nice group of selections make it onto the scoresheet, which was nice.  But none were nicer than @muri33forza's pick of Jordan Mutch; who notched a goal, an assist, and 3 bonus points in what I considered to be the most exciting match of the gameweek.  Poor poor Vincent Tan...gotta feel for him, right?  Yeah, that was a joke; at least other meddlesome owners like Abramovich don't dress ridiculously and stand around in the bleachers looking like some kind of clown; am I right? ;)

Alright, so with this week's #JackInTheBox there is a virtual all-you-can-eat buffet of fixtures involving the bottom 8 sides.  6 of them square off with one another in 3 different fixtures, with Sunderland hosting Villa, Fulham hosting West Ham, and Crystal Palace hosting Norwich.  The other 2 clubs in the bottom 8, Cardiff and West Brom, play away to Arsenal and home to Newcastle, respectively.

GW20 FPL #JackInTheBox: Marouane Chamakh

I'm picking Chamakh for a number of reasons this week.  First, Palace have been killing it at home recently and Chamakh has been in good form.  Second, everyone wants his hairstyle but no one can quite duplicate it.  It's almost as if it defies every natural law of physics related to human hair.  And of course third, @FPLHelp is a diehard Palace fan, will probably be at the match, and the thought of someone I kinda "know" being at an EPL fixture watching my #JackInTheBox pick score a goal in person while cheering for his beloved team is just too good a possibility to pass up.

If you want to know what it's like to experience Selhurst Park during a home fixture, check this video out.  One of the coolest videos I've seen in a while.  Really hate being an ocean away sometimes.  One day I will experience this instead of just getting chills watching it on YouTube.

Hoping for good gameweeks all around,
