    KanKeano on 22 Aug at 14:07

    Well that’s the second round of Premier League games done and dusted. How did we all get on this weekend from a punting perspective? My weekend wasn’t too bad. Spurs won! Arsenal didn’t.

Houston Texans Starter - Brock Osweiler Backups - Brandon Weeden and Tom Savage I’ve stated in the introduction to the majority of this series of blogs that it’s a team game but the…
