On the Recap: Saturday Odd Notes

At the right place at the right time
Odd things can happen in a single day. Check this out in our Saturday dose of Fantasy Premier League weekend Gameweek 13:-

Odd Notes No. 1: Bale finally replicate his Gameweek 2 points
Gareth Bale got a second double digit points of the season with two goals and an assist in Spurs 4-2 victory against Blackburn. Still no clean sheet for them though. Fortunately, Van Der Vaart also managed to get two assists for majority of us. Next; The North London Derby.

Odd Notes No. 2: Three Nil-Nil stalemate (NEW, FUL, WHAM, BLP, MANC, BIR)
Six teams could not score a single goal for a combine total of six clean sheets this weekend on Saturday alone. Mark Schwarzer kept Nolan & Carroll at bay meanwhile The Tangerines registered their first unexpected clean sheet away at West Ham. Birmingham defense managed to produce a rare shutout away against toothless Manchester City. They deserved to be booed nonetheless.

Odd Notes No. 3: Two unsuccessful comebacks
Blackburn and Wolves tried to claw back after conceding four and three goals respectively against Spurs and very impressive Bolton. Johan 'two years to get his form' Elmander scored another away goal and received maximum bonus points (Please refer On The Forecast: Gameweek 13). If you haven't seen it, search the internet and you will be amazed. Matt Jarvis provided two assists to justify his important role in the Wolves lineup. One to watch; free kicks taker Nenad Milijas. David Dunn was back with a bang for Blackburn and expect low output for Gamst Pedersen if this bloke is fit. 

Odd Notes No. 4: Liverpool mediocre again
What can I tell you, last time they crumbled against Wigan and now they even managed to lose to Stoke (2-0) after all that talking of Torres emerging threat. Disharmony in the camp maybe? Reina & Glen Johnson already asked for transfer though. As predicted, Kenwyne Jones got his long awaited goal this week with his foot (not his head) and the Rory Delap throw is still their ultimate secret weapon. The Potters to start winning matches from here on.

Odd Notes No.5: Broken & Unbroken Records
Wigan finally won (1-0) after six games winless run against West Brom. Nzogbia again the architect for the home side and whoever want to have him, keep in mind that their fixtures are getting tougher starting with a trip to Old Trafford. Odemwingie was back in his usual self but a little bit rusty. The Red Devils uncharacteristically squandered two goals and then out of nowhere netted two in the last ten minutes to keep their 18 games unbeaten record still intact. Villa were still hard to beat even though they almost took the full points against them. The usual suspects in this game; Nani, Albrighton, Downing & Ashley Cole.
