Going into Sunday the FPL Shithouse XI had registered an all-time low 10 points but with Speroni not regaining his place over McCarthy it was Butland who came off my bench with his assist! WTF I hear you say, exactly, misery compounded. Other than that Cook continued his high scoring form with a clean sheet this time as the rest of my sorry squad scored nothing higher than 2 points.
With a total of 27 points and a rank of 2,795,170 I saw a drop of over 2 hundred thousand places.
Butland – Conceded but his assist and 3 saves ensured 2 bonus points and he is becoming a nuisance in my team.
PvA & Pieters – With both of these defenders in shit form they are more than welcome to stay. Pieters’ season form is perfect for this team with his last 6 outings returning this points record – 1-1-1-1-1-1.
Bassong – With a steady 2 points, its business as expected for the Norwich rear end.
Cook – A clean sheet but no bonus point is a consolation for what was a disaster otherwise.
Colback, Cattermole & Coquelin – 3 points between them including one captain is great news. Shame Cattermole didn’t play; maybe Advocaat is seeing some sense! Nooooooo.
Sanchez – 1 point less than the Good one for the third week in a row. Take note Alexis!
King – Comes off the bench for Cattermole and Leicester to provide a lonely point although his League Cup goal on Tuesday is causing concerns at Shithouse HQ.
Gabby – In a local derby you expect goals but on this occasion, not from Villa, not from Gabby. Well played.
Ayoze – Did Sweet fuck all again, lovely stuff!
So here is gameweek 6’s line-up…
Speroni (OUT) -> Schmiechel (IN)
Leicester cannot keep a clean sheet so he is perfect shithouse material!
This week my captain will be Ayoze at home to a Chelsea side that could have turned a corner. Could have…
