A reasonably high scoring gameweek saw the average points total rise to 58 points. Thankfully, the Shithouse XI managed less than half. At 27 points, every player bar Gabriel Agbonlahor managed either one or two lacklustre points.
This solid points score has seen the Shithouse XI slip further down the overall rankings. With a majority of the top half teams winning comfortably, teams lower than 10th position didn’t have much luck gathering any points. Unfortunately for us, the ‘Tim Sherwood effect’ spoiled our full house.
Guzan – Despite an epic first win for Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa, Guzan was unable to keep a
Morgan – Leicester City’s woeful form continues as they labour to a 2-0 defeat to the reigning premier league champions. An easy 1 point achieved for the Shithouse XI.
Brown – Returning from mistaken identity, Brown concedes a goal and receives a yellow card. Ideal.
Ward – A late goal from Mane secured a shady two points for the Palace defender.
Gardner – Luckily for us, the Villa fans booed the WBA player every time he was in possession. This implicated a deserved yellow card for Craig who could only muster a mere 1 point.
Cleverley – This gameweek saw Tom return to Villa’s and Shithouse XI’s first team. Fortunately, he managed to wear his invisible cloak once again. 2 points.
Livermore – This week’s captain played the full 90 minutes at home against a struggling Sunderland team. Some would have said a risky decision making him captain, we didn’t. 4 points.
Jones – Away to Liverpool, Burnley failed to keep a clean sheet and hardly poised a threat to Mignolet.
N’Zonzi – One of our star players this week managed to get a clean sheet therefore pinching an extra point for his work.
Wickham – The out of form Sunderland striker was dropped from the starting line up this week. However, he managed 17 minutes, where of course, he did nothing. 1 point.
Agbonlahor – Ah, the anomaly. A stand out performance from the home grown Villa player. Gabriel scored a goal and received 2 deserved bonus points. Do I smell an immediate transfer?
Moving swiftly onto the weekend’s action. As you can quite clearly see, many of the bottom half teams are playing each other this gameweek, we have tried very hard to minimise the impact of this.
Agbonlahor – A very short term stay for Agbonlahor in the Shithouse XI first team. Villa’s revived performance midweek over WBA implies a rise in form. We simply cannot take this chance for granted. Out he goes.
Zamora – Up against a resilient Palace team who don’t concede many goals at home. QPR will look to their saviour, Charlie Austin and not their one goal a year veteran, Bobby. Having scored on the weekend against Spurs, we are very confident he will play the full 90 minutes without having a sniff at goal.
The captain’s armband will go to Jones this week, Burnley are at home to Man City. Hopefully the defending league champions turn on the style.
