Thirsty Thursday Weekend Fútbol Preview and EPL Pool Update – EPL Round 5

We are back!  After a week off to deal with International games and friendlies, the real games are back for all the European leagues. As you know, this is your weekly post to remind you to put the EPL tips in, tell you who is winning, and to give you the weekend’s fútbol schedule so that you could plan your weekend activities accordingly. 

Before I begin, I want to give credit for all the hot lady soccer fan pictures to the Fútbol Babes Twitter account. Those folks do the Lord’s Work and deserve a follow from you.

Nothing has changed since last week. I just put the table up to remind everyone where we all stand.

If you want to join the pool, there is still plenty of time as we’ve only just completed Round 4 out of 38. It’s free to play and all you have to do is create an account with ESPN Australia. It’s a different ESPN from here, so your normal ESPN login will not work: https://www.footytips.com.au/competitions/?ff=settings&competitionId=573249

BONUS!

Just in time for the NFL Thursday Night Football Extravaganza, here is your reminder to put in your tips for the NFL Tipping Pool and for the DFO Eliminator Challenge. Links are below:

Tipping Pool: https://mobile.footytips.com.au/competitions/?ff=ladders&competitionId=575837

Eliminator Challenge: http://fantasy.espn.com/nfl-eliminator-challenge/2019/en/group?groupID=56874

After Week One, there are still 27 Commentists left in the Eliminator Challenge. Tough luck to BFC, FishTaco006, and Gratliff, who placed their faith in the Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, and no team and were duly rewarded.

As for the NFL Tipping Pool, here are the standings:
