We are heading in one direction at the minute and that’s complete nosedive down. As I write this we have one match and one player left to play in game week 32. Look at the state of this⬇️
As you can see there’s a red card, a couple of Zero’s and a boatload of injuries – A fantasy football combination from hell. The amount of players potentially unavailable for GW33 is going to be the biggest problem going forward. A squad overhaul will be a necessity which, of course, will result in a massive negative starting point. The accumulation of points is quickly turning into the dissipation of points.
Our title race ended a few weeks ago and now we are now looking cautiously over our shoulder as we scramble to secure a 3rd placed finish. After a brilliant 3 quarters of the season it’s total disarray and the head has gone.
Where do we go from here? TOTAL RESET WITH A F**K IT MENTALITY.
Let’s be honest, the GW33 fixtures aren’t great. City and Spurs have no fixture…… Thank god. They (Pep in particular) have been the masters of our demise in recent weeks.
Leicester home to West Brom and Liverpool home to Newcastle look the pick of an average bunch. What’s interesting though, if you’re looking for a bit long term planning both those sides have pretty favourable fixtures from now till the close of the season. The advice from this (failing) fantasy football manager is to load up on Leicester and Liverpool players for the next few weeks.
THIS WEEK’S PICKS
I said the head had gone and the mentality is now f**k it, nothing to lose. That’s where the reset comes in and a steady -16 fired. Yes, that’s right, MINUS SIXTEEN. 5 transfers in total and all Manchester City players binned. It’s been a battle with Guardiola all season and it’s one that seems impossible to win.
The transfer are –
EVANS (Leicester) for STONES
JOTA (Liverpool) for GUNDUGAN
MANÉ (Liverpool) for KDB
VARDY (Leicester) for KANE
WATKINS (Villa) for Lacazette
Some bold moves made, no least taking the big points hit, but, like I said earlier, nothing to lose at this stage. 2000 points is the target and we go from there.
I’m not sure about the captains pick at this stage. I’m going to wait until right up to the deadline and make a gut choice from there. Everything a fantasy manager shouldn’t do but hey, things haven’t been working out recently. We need to mix it up.
TAKE THE BALL, PASS THE BALL.
