We have been well and truly treated this week with a whole host of mid-week football to keep us ticking over through December. With a jam-packed month of Premier League football ahead, it is important to stay on top of your team transfers and management. Before we check out the line-up for gameweek 15, lets see how the shithouse XI did in gameweek 14.
The Shithouse XI managed to improve slightly on their 30 point haul from last week with a tally of 32 points this time around. They are now ranked in the bottom 150,000 players of all players on Fantasy Football, with a league position of 1,133 in the @FPL_Updates league.
Green – Thanks to goals from Ki & Routledge, Green’s 5 saves throughout the match at Swansea go unnoticed in the FPL world as Rob finishes on just the 2 points.
Morgan – Wes was the subject of a dream debut and what a transfer if we can say so ourselves! Conceding 3 goals before getting a straight red card again Liverpool after 62 mins played. Unfortunately it now means we have a smaller pool of players for our starting XI but an excellent performance from the new boy Wes!
Smalling – Chris Smalling played the full 90 minutes at Old Trafford against Stoke. Unfortunately, he was part of the defence unlucky enough to concede a goal from fellow Shithouser Steven N’Zonzi and therefore only collects the 2 appearance points.
Ward – Christian Benteke returns and scores the only goal in the game at Selhurst Park, meaning Ward finishes with just the 2 points. A good performance from our defence all round!
Cattermole – Lee picked up his 7th yellow card of the season against Manchester City in the 4-1 loss to them at the Stadium of Light. This means he adds just a single point to the Shithouse XI tally.
So at this point, that is 5 points from 5 players. If only we managed to keep that record up throughout the rest of the line-up!
Cleverley – As Villa kept a clean sheet against Palace, Cleverley picks up a bonus point for his side’s defensive display and finishes the week on 3 points.
Flamini – Flamini played the full 90 and thanks to a late Sanchez winner, Arsenal take away the points in a tough looking fixture against Southampton. Again, thanks to his side’s defensive display, he too takes an additional point and finishes on 3 points.
Gardner – Our captain for the week did us proud and played just 64 minutes. In that time, he produced nothing in terms of fantasy football points and therefore collects the 2 appearance points, resulting in 4 due to captaincy points doubling.
N’Zonzi – Our star man this week with a whopping 10 points. That’s a lot for a Shithouser! Steven took home all 3 bonus points too meaning that from 5 points from 5 players, we have now jumped to 25 from 9.
Jutkiewicz – Lukas played just 6 minutes resulting in 1 point.
Wickham – Wickham unfortunately for us opened the scoring in the game against Manchester City and therefore picks up 6 points in total.
So, with a flaky front-line, we felt it was about time we brought in a striker who is going to get the game-time…
Nugent – David has only played 50 minutes in total from the last 4 game-weeks combined which is simply not good enough to be in our shithouse XI squad. It was all looking great at the start of the season as he was playing week in week out, but it seems his form has taken its toll on his game-time and he has been dropped more often than not.
Chamakh – Marouane came to the Premier League with such promise, being the highest goal-scorer of headers in European football. He was ripping it up in the French league, only to disappoint at Arsenal. Now that he is at Palace, he is still struggling for fantasy points but he has recently been getting consistent play-time so we hope this continues.
As Connor Wickham decided to add big points to our tally in gameweek 14, we have decided to give him the captain’s armband for his match against Liverpool in gameweek 15. Surely he can’t do it again… can he?
