Gameweek 16 saw a very high average of 47 points, with a lot of the in form and obvious fantasy football selections scoring big points. This means that the rest are left to pick up the smaller points and this is no different to those that feature in the Shithouse XI…
The Shithouse XI did us extremely proud this week with a points tally of 23 in total. If we didn’t have a goalscoring midfielder, we would be looking at a below 20 score. They are now ranked 1,138th in the @FPL_Updates league and picked up the gameweek rank of 3.27 millionth out of nearly 3.4 million players, a Shithouse XI score and rank to be proud of!
Green – Conceding 3 goals in the MNF fixture against Everton means that Green comes away with just a single fantasy football point to his name
Davies – Curtis played the full 90 against Chelsea and thanks to conceding 2 goals, he too comes away with just a single point.
Morgan – 90 minutes played and the 1 goal conceded in the game against Man City means Morgan doesn’t get the clean sheet points and scores just the 2 appearance points.
Brown – Wes Brown was part of the Sunderland team that saw out a 1-1 draw against West Ham. Like Morgan, he scores the 2 appearance points but misses out on the clean sheet points thanks to Downing’s goal.
N’Zonzi – Steven is one of three midfielders to score the same points in exactly the same way. Stoke losing the clean sheet thanks to a McArthur goal means that he doesn’t get the clean sheet point and finishes gameweek 16 on just the 2 points.
Cattermole – Cattermole too comes away with just the 2 appearance points after that Downing goal Sunderland conceded. Hey, it could have been worse, he could have been booked right?
Flamini – Arsenal surged to victory at the Emirates against Newcastle but thanks to an Ayoze Perez goal, Arsenal lose their clean sheet and Flamini takes the 2 appearance points.
Cleverley – Tom was part of the Villa team that lost to West Brom at The Hawthorns but thanks to his fifth booking of the season, he finishes the gameweek on 1 point and is suspended for gameweek 17. Shithouse.
Gardner – Craig was the player to score that goal at The Hawthorns and therefore brings home the record points for this week in the Shithouse XI, 7 points. Thanks to the goal and a clean sheet bonus point, Craig picked up these points but his total could have been higher if it wasn’t for a yellow card or not picking up any bonus points, despite scoring the only goal of the game.
Chamakh – Marouane was our captain for gameweek 16 but failed to capitalise on that status by scoring a single point thanks to a yellow card, meaning he adds just 2 points to our tally.
Wickham – Connor played the full 90 but thanks to a yellow also, he too brings in just the 1 point.
A lot of injuries and a suspension means that we struggle to field a fully available squad. After a very low scoring gameweek 16, we are looking to keep that form up and with that said, we have made one change in preparation for this week. Here is our line-up for gameweek 17:
Jutkiewicz – Lukas has not played 90 minutes since gameweek 7 as he failed to impress at the start of the season. He has played a total of 11 minutes over the last 3 gameweeks combined and with the amount of suspensions, we needed to ensure we have a starting xi.
Vardy – Jamie Vardy has played over 60 minutes every gameweek since gameweek 8 and has failed to score more than 2 fantasy points since gameweek 7. His performance in the epic win over United in gameweek 5 can not go unnoticed but since then, he has failed to produce the goods as Leicester slip up after a promising start to the season. Therefore, we believe Jamie deserves the Shithouse XI employment history on his CV so we welcome him to our line-up. Welcome to the team Jamie, make yourself comfortable…
We have decided to give the captain’s armband to Wickham, to give him a chance to shine in the Tyne-Wear derby against Newcastle. There has not been a 0-0 for a very very long time so we should expect goals. If Wickham doesn’t play, new Shithouse XI signing Vardy has been handed the vice captaincy.
