Well the beauty of being the manager of the FPL SHITHOUSE XI is that scenes like Aguero starting from the bench and missing a penalty are a frequent occurrence for my team. In fact, I only wish I had investing in Aguero this weekend and if he keeps that up, he will be in! This gameweek we scored 10 points lower than the average, 29 and this resulted in small red arrows for the 6th week in a row. The SHITHOUSE XI know sit at 3,653,797 out of a total of just over 4 million!
Let’s take a look at the report for FPL gameweek 8 before delving into the depths of the SHITHOUSE XI for gameweek 9.
Gomes (8) – A clean sheet wipe-out for Watford never came and as a result, Gomes picked up a massive 8 points including 1 bonus point!
Robertson (0) – The injured Robertson was subbed after 62 minutes, if only he had gone down 3 minutes earlier he would of scored negatively!
Lowton (1) – Burnley couldn’t keep Southampton out and 3 goals later, Lowton picked up a single point.
Djilobodji (1) – Another poor defensive performance from Sunderland was perfect mitigation for the Gomes 8 pointer.
Total Defensive Points – 10
Captain Barry (4) – He did not let us down, could have been booked though, but we can grumble with that!
Dier (1) – Back in contention with Toby Alderwierled’s injury and a point returned was his reward.
Yacob (2) – One of my favourite SHITHOUSE XI players, top job Claudio!
Behrami (3) – Didn’t live up to his bad boy reputation and brought home a higher than expected 3 points.
Zaza (2) – He is shocking and we know it!
Vokes (6) – With Gray back soon for his Twitter misdemeanours I’m hoping Sam’s returns are significantly reduced.
Diomande (1) – Consistency is key! Highest score since gameweek 2 is 2!
The Bench (5) – With only Jakupovic failing to play, the team quota is back up to 14 out of 15 playing.
Now, here is how the SHITHOUSE XI line-up for gameweek 9:
Jakupovic (OUT) -> Marshall (IN) – Keeping the Hull defence in tact.
Yacob does not let me down, so the armband goes to him!
