Strike 1: Podolski (GW20)
Strike 2: Berbatov (GW21)
Strike 3 (GW22)?
I sure hope not. In baseball, strike three means you're out. Adios. And I am having none of that.
Having said that, I think a base hit (an assist) is within grasp for sure, while a home run (a goal) would be nice to re-establish #CalledIt as a credible differential pick.
/Hm, would two goals or a goal and an assist constitute a Grand Slam in baseball? Walt?/
Anyway, Arsenal are playing host to the lowly Fulham on Saturday and if Sunderland (yes, Sunderland) were able to put 4 past them, then I see no reason why current league leaders couldn't do the same. While the majority of Walcott owners turned to Özil as a replacement, there were some who took a gamble and got Santi. Bold. I sincerely hope come Saturday afternoon we will see the Santi from last year's. You know, like the guy scoring a hat trick versus Reading? Yeah, that guy.
Santi Cazorla, #CalledIt pick for GW22.
P.S. As added assurance, whenever the selected player was pointing to my #CalledIt on the visual, he delivered. I made an effort to search for such a picture. Success is all but guaranteed.
