Presidents Trophy – Gameweek 9 preview
After a dominant week 8 performance, Team USA will look to push on. This week we have a rerun of week 3 where Europe took a 4-2 win. After last week they hope to do the same again in week 9. Geting a big win total will sure help Europe’s chances of a win.
The captain’s battle
First up for the week 9 matchups, we have the captain’s battle. Week 3 saw a fantastic game between the two captains and eventually ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) got what they needed. Now it’s time for the rematch, it’s all or nothing for ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys)
After saving Team Europe from embarrassment, Europe’s ‘JoshPattenden7’ now faces USA’s ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff). Geoff hammered Josh by 70 points last time round when Josh hadn’t got a win in the league. Both teams have had mixed results since then so will want to make sure they are on the right side of the result here.
USA’s ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian) has a tight battle against Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL). These teams are on opposite records at the moment of 5-3 and 3-5. However Poulter is on a 3 game losing streak and WSSF will want to not only add to that but get one back after the week 3 defeat.
Team Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS’ (James) goes up against USA’s ‘Mericaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA). Both teams are quite evenly matched at 4-4 and 5-3. MFY will see this as a revenge game after getting the best manager award in week 3 yet losing to AVFCJPS
The next matchup is Team USA’s ‘Mr America’ (Kevin Tompkins) matching up against Europe’s ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow). The week 3 matchup saw BA get their first win of the season and so will want to double up over Mr America. Right now it looks like Mr America won’t be letting that happen with a big win predicted.
The final matchup will see Europe’s ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall) going head to head with USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob). In week 3 JSnake handed Mcllroy their first loss of the season but this time round the prediction is going to be a close game that could go either way.
