Gameweek 10 followed in the same vain as the proceeding gameweek for me with a disastrous FPL score covering up the very odd spark of brilliance shown by a couple of my Fantasy Premier League Shithousers. Last week it was Pieters who shone through the shower of shit and that mantle this week fell in the feet of the two Leicester lads who had previously notched up ZERO clean sheets. With a 1-0 scrape past Palace I was left with a mega 14 points from these two alone, pretty much half of my whole total!
So with a rank of 3,252,201 and a sea of red arrows it’s all smiles here at Shithouse HQ.
Schmeichel – Clean sheet and 4 saves, this was unexpected but I don’t foresee a Leicester defensive masterclass emerging so he stays.
Bassong – Captain Bassong brought home a duo of points, doubled to, you’ve guessed it, 4!
Huth – Like his colleague, he also brought home a massive 7 points, as a bonus point was awarded to the German.
Hutton – At one point it looked like my days were up but 2 counter goals from Swansea rescued my plight to doom.
Cook – Conceded 5, top bloke, let’s move on.
Colback – Started, got booked and subbed before 60 minutes and is now suspended, THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!
Cattermole – Jack’s counterpart in the Tyne-Wear derby picked up 2 more points than I hoped, but he’s still a legend.
Coquelin – The 3 C’s (Colback\Cattermole\Coquelin) are back in the starting XI, with a combined points total of 4!
Sanchez – He doesn’t seem to get a look in anymore but with Tim gone, this could change so he’s still in.
Agbonlahor – An assist from this lump earnt him a solid 5 points in standard FPL but that means it’s not so solid for the Shithousers!
Rooney – My big gamble is paying off and he even missed a penalty in the Capital One cup this week, that’s England’s ‘best’ right there.
No transfers this week but will use 2 next time round.
Captain – Bassong faces a rampant City away this weekend so expect a mauling.
Good Luck all!
