So as AFCON approaches I am glad my S**thouse XI are not, on the whole, capable of any remote acknowledgment from their countries with the unbelievable exception of Lamine Kone. Ivory Coast must be having a laugh!
Thankfully I saved a transfer from last week so I have 2 to replace the African along with fellow S**thouse legend Francis Coquelin who has suffered another critical injury. Gameweek 20 was a pleasure to witness as the lads accumulated an immense 25 points, edging me ever closer to that illusive 4 million mark! Overall rank is 3,985,666… agonisingly close now.
Let’s dive into gameweek 20 before we look at the S**thouse XI for this weekend:
Marshall (1) – A single for the Hull keeper was a welcome relief.
Chambers (8) – Silly silly boy.
Captain Ward (2) – A player I am looking at in my own team ironically but this week, it’s just the double.
Ogbonna (1) – No BFZ (Big Fat Zero) this week as my last defender rescues 1 lonely point.
Total defensive points – 12, been better!
Coquelin (1) – My Arsenal brute picks up an injury and escapes any attacking or defensive points in the process.
Yacob (2) – My old faithful is just that, 2 points from the bag o’ s**te.
Dier (3) – A clean sheet single added to his non cautioned display. Come on lad; sort it out!
Barry (1) – Getting back to being as poor as usual. A single.
Diomande (2) – Blank again; he started with a bang and deflated quickly!
Vokes (4) – Came on for 22 minutes and assisted. Worrying…
Barrow (0) – A BFZ but for the wrong reasons. Let’s hope Clement gets him back in the side!
Onto this weekend now and as I said, I had 2 FT’s so I spent them wisely!
Coquelin (OUT) -> Xhaka (IN) – He looks a firery lad and likely to break someone’s leg.
Kone (OUT) -> Holebas (IN) – 9 yellow cards already! He’s going to get hauled up in a tribunal at the end of the season and this team needs an award!
The armband this week falls to Mr Dependable, Claudio Yacob.
