    • 2 years, 18 days ago
    1. Last one is meant to be Suarez to Ballo.

      • 2 years, 18 days ago
    2. You can't plan these things in advance. Things like injuries, teams going in and out of form, players start to perform better than expected and have favourable fixtures, etc.

“A hit a week every week and finish in the top 50k is just fine and dandy for me. I play the game for the fun and how it improves watching Stoke vs Cardiff on a Monday night in November.”
