FPL_Junior is becoming a dab hand at this S**thouse XI lark with a fantastic score of 16. I scored just 9 points more yet the deficit to Junior has increased once again! Wildcard is firmly on my thoughts….
Overall ranks for the two teams are:
Let’s look at Junior’s team from gameweek 9 and his plans for gameweek 10 first.
Fabianski (2) – First blank for the S**thouse XI. That’s more like it.
Lowe (2) – Proving to be a quality acquisition.
Zanka (2) – The double up payed off, even though they beat United.
Lowton (2) – When your captain faces Manchester City, a blank is imminent. Lowton follows suit.
Total defensive points – 8
Romeu (3) – Standard.
Barry (1) – A single for Barry. Hopefully he will be fit after picking up a knock.
Gueye (-1) – A red card! Couldn’t have asked for more.
Cork (1) – A yellow card brought home a well-deserved single.
Krychowiak (2) – That’s why I brought in the Pole. His first blank for the team.
Gray (1) – 1 minute played, 1 point earned.
Barnes (1) – You’ve guessed it, a yellow card earns him yet another 1 point.
Bench – 2 points in total as both Palace players didn’t make the starting XI and Sandro was benched once again. Simpson picked up the 2 points.
Now onto this week’s team:
Captain – Zanka is this week’s captain as he travels to Anfield.
Transfer – Sandro is axed for the out of form Rodriguez.
Onto my team now which isn’t pretty reading by any means having scored 48 points, only 3 less than the whole average:
Pope (3) – His goal penetrated. 3 points for Nick with a few saves against City.
Tarkowski (0) – Didn’t manage to beat Zouma’s heroics with his -2 but a BFZ (Big Fat Zero) none the less.
Dunk (6) – When you bring someone from the S**thouse in to your regular team, something is really wrong here! 6 points for Dunk.
Simpson (2) – Simmo, as the lads call him, picks up an easy 2 points.
Cook (1) – A single for Steve as Stoke take away Bournemouth’s clean sheet.
Zouma (1) – 3 points more than last week!
Total defensive points – 13
Gueye (-1) – Red card, that’s why both Junior and myself have the petulant general.
Britton (1) – Leon picks up just a single as he does nothing as per usual.
Ayew (5) – This is where my side lets me down as Jordan picks up an assist…
Niasse (5) – …and Niasse goes one better with a goal!
Perez (2) – Perez keeps me honest though with a blank.
Bench (2) – Only Butland and Hayden play this week but no immediate concerns in this department.
This week’s team:
Transfer – With City, Chelsea and Spurs in their next 4 games, West Brom face a tough road ahead so Kieran Gibbs makes his S**thouse XI debut.
Captain – Rule of thumb – captain anyone playing City, so Gibbs is thrown into the deep-end!
Good luck and save those reds for us!
