Every so often one of those weeks come along where one of my FPL shithousers spring into life and score a goal or keep a clean sheet. Even rarer is when this happens to all three of your strikers. That week was this week! Gameweek 17 is where I notched up a massive 47 points, I caught some luck as my rank only increased by exactly 8,100 places! This was due to every other striker, more or less, scoring!
So with a rank of 3,396,893 I have remained in the top 94%, just…
Schmeichel – Back to back basic points from the young league leader means he’s back in business!
Bassong – A lonely 2 points and a win away to Manchester United was very unexpected, but good enough for me.
Cook – Very rarely keeps a clean sheet and this is exactly the reason why I brought him in! 2 points.
Hutton – Captain Fantastic actually doubled his average this week and returned a 2 point haul, doubling to 4.
Van Aanholt – A one point return from a 3-1 loss was perfect mitigation for the bad boy strikers who we’ll mention soon.
Total defensive points… 10!
Lucas – I watched this game and the Liverpool so called ‘Midfield General’ was absolute shocking!
Noble – Another successive nil nil thriller from Mark, combined with another well behaved performance earned him 3 points!
Sánchez – I still struggle to understand how this guy gets paid every week, he fits right in here though, 2 points!
Okazaki – Word has it that these three clubbed together last Thursday night and had some shooting practice! What a set of plonkers, as they all bleeding scored! 11 points for Okazaki.
Jerome – Another goal and an assist for Cameron was the 2nd knife in the back, 11 points again!
J. Ayew – To seal my green arrow fate was Jordan Ayew who scored for Villa, but failed to go that extra mile and pick up an assist too, 8 points!
Now onto this week’s team:
Transfers – No transfers this week as I want to save 2 for Christmas.
Captain – Captain Bassong again and we’re hoping he repeats his heroics in gameweek 11 when he was awarded this honour.
