You just know Fantasy Premier League gameweek 21 was messed up when the Shithouse XI scores 17 FPL points more than the average, even after both captain and vice captain score zero! Blame has to lie at the manager’s door in picking defenders that have shown great qualities in recent weeks. The wildcard is so tempting for gameweek 22, but I’m gonna give my players the benefit on this one. With a score of 52 and a gameweek 21 rank of 302k, green arrows were a result taking me back into the top 94% (3,390,555).
Before I take you through my choices for the weekend, let me re-cap gameweek 21’s points:
Boruc – Things were looking bleak for my team on the Tuesday until Payet turned it round and ruined any chance of a Bournemouth clean sheet.
Bassong – So far so good right? 1 point for the Norwich faithful.
Huth – F**k me drunk, 14 points for the square headed German, what a goal though.
Cook – Redeemed himself for last week as he let 3 goals slide past him, 1 point total.
van Aanholt – He’s out, a goal and an assist to match his goal from gameweek 21 means he’s first out of the door.
Total defensive points – 29. Jesus Christ.
Colback – Escaped a yellow card but came home with nothing, he stays.
Cattermole – Imagine a team with Colback and Cattermole in, 2 points like his best buddy.
Yacob (captain) – As Lucas didn’t play the armband defaulted to Yacob and he is learning fast, subbed off as he was about to go all WWF with Diego Costa. 0 points doubled is ZERO!
Rooney – It takes more than a goal and an assist against Newcastle, who he always scores against, to remove him from the Shithouse, he stays.
Jerome – Played 16 minutes and picked up a single point.
Okazaki – Favoured to Ulloa for the trip to White Hart Lane. Ranieri soon figured out he was a shithouser, subbed him, and that resulted in 2 points.
Transfers – Coloccini comes in for the ‘prolific’ van Aanholt.
Captain – This week the armband goes to Yacob away to Southampton
