Where should I start? Let’s go back to GW33+ that saw 81 points and a green arrow with an improved in the OR to a season high, 153k! Yet green with envy, it was short lived as GW34+ I missed the weekly average (59) finishing on 52 points thanks in part to Son not starting and Laporte not playing in a week that City picked up clean sheet. GW35+ was a roll of the dice, so to speak, as I was in the second leg of the quarterfinals of the Banterbury H2H League. It was a league I didn’t put much thought into but found myself down two points heading into the season leg. Continue reading “GW35+ Retrospect: Shit Show”
Looking back on the past 7 days, it’s been a good fantasy week, starting with the 67 points my starting XI scored in GW1. While that doesn’t sound like much, it was 14 points more than the 53 point average and it was over 60 points, which acts as a measuring stick for the season. While I didn’t post my goals for the season (yet), averaging 60 points has been on that list for a few years. Looking ahead to GW2, I have made one change in my starting XI and have decided to roll the FT in anticipation of big changes ahead of GW3.

It’s the final week of the season and after a dismal performance in DGW37, it can’t come soon enough. It’s been a long and turbulent season, which has see highs and lows. However, it’s the lows that always seen to linger during the season. Harry Kane can fuck off! He’s been virtually useless on my starting XI all season long. Thankfully Mohamed Salah was a refreshing face that picked up much of Kane’s ineffectiveness.

On the heels of back-to-back -4 point hits, I go balls deep this week with a -8 point hit, introducing that Spurs cheat, Harry Kane on the back of his “ghost goal” and the “Flat Track Bully,” Romelu Lukaku. It will surely be an interesting week with all the attention that has been paid to DGW34, there really is no clear cut starting XI this week. Captaincy is even up in the air with some good DGW options.

It’s been a long week, not only personally but FPL wise. European matches were an absolutely killer this week, as I lost Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mohammad Salah. Of the two, one kept their place, while the other was transferred out to make way for talent, fit in order to gain that all important 5th green arrow in a row.

Thursday is here and my transfers are already confirmed. This is why a fantasy manager must remain flexible to change. Ahead of BGW31, I had only intended to use one of the two FTs to bring in a defender ahead of the gameweek. However, last weekend’s injury to Harry Kane, now down £0.1 overnight had me rethinking how to play out this blank gameweek.
