From heroes to zeros, the second gameweek of the season was massively different to the first with many managers screaming at their radios and TV’s at the lack of goals from the so called big hitters. You know it’s a strange week when the S**thouse XI managers’ teams both beat their respective ‘normal’ teams and it was major heartbreak for newcomer @FPL_Junior as his S**thouse XI defence scored only 2 less points (43) than the FPL average (45)!
Let’s have a quick look at the two S**thouse XI’s and their scores before taking a peek at the gameweek 2 teams.
@FPL_Junior (50 Points)
Hennessey (9) – 12 saves! Max bonus! 9 points for the Welshman which started off a poor week.
Shawcross (6) – A clean sheet at home to Arsenal, poor.
Pieters (6) – The double up hasn’t paid off – another 6 pointer in the backline.
Simpson (6) – A clean sheet at home to Brighton after he comes off the bench for the injured Sandro.
Captain Williams – (16) DISASTER! 16 points from my captain. Coming off just a few seconds after the 60 minute mark and banks the clean sheet his teammates didn’t earn and 2 bonus points to rub salt into the wounds.
Defensive Total – 43
Gueye (2) – Another steady 2 pointer, keep them coming.
Arter (2) – No returns from Harry and he brings the second 2 pointer to the team.
Kante (2) – Staying away from Chelsea’s attack, another blank for my main man, Kante.
Romeu (2) – Making it a 4 out of 4 blanks for my midfield, Romeu does the business by doing nothing.
Barnes (0) Coming on at the death and getting booked in minutes; a lovely, needed 0 pointer.
Batshuayi (-1) A s**thouse dream! An own goal by the Chelsea striker bringing home a -1.
The Bench (8) – 2 injuries, a clean sheet and a blanky Matt Lowton, I’ll take that.
Transfer – Gareth Barry comes in for the injured Yacob, a very like for like move.
Captain – Harry Arter – Hopefully he won’t do as well as my previous two captains and carry on picking up those yellows.
@FPL_vs (35 Points)
Butland (11) – Neither of us did well in this category, double digits for my keeper!
Zouma (7) – The Stoke double will come good… Please come good!
Captain Dunk (2) – Slam Dunk! My captain for the 2nd week and his average for the start of the season is ZERO (-2 + 2)!
Simpson (6) – What were Leicester thinking?!
Fernandez (0) – Lovely!
Tarkowski (2) Another blank from the newbie at Burnley.
Defensive Total – 28
Fellaini (1) – The big donkey is becoming a S**thouse XI hero!
Gueye (2) – 2 pointer from the Evertonian general.
Britton (0) – Didn’t even play. However he is back from injury now.
Diouf (2) – Blank forward number 1!
Ayew (2) – Blank forward number 2!
The Bench (2) – 4 players didn’t even feature which needs to be addressed ASAP.
Transfer – Looks like the S**thouse XI legend that is Jack Colback is not good enough anymore so he makes way for Big Phil Billing from Huddersfield.
Captain Slam Dunk – Why change a winning formula? Dunk comes in for his 3rd captaincy away to Leicester.
That’s all from us, remember, save those reds for us!
