Get a load of this…..
Yeah that’s 3 one’s in the starting XI with a 6 and a 12 making up the bench. FPL my life.
It’s indicative of the way the last month has gone for us really, the Chilwell points obviously being the most disappointing. The thought process behind leaving him on the bench was actually fairly logically at the time. He was a big rest risk (as seen previously) for Chelsea’s Champions League semi in Madrid. Cheers Mr Tuchel, you can go and drop yourself in the same bin as your colleague, Pep.
It means that 34 in a week’s low scoring average of 36 turns out very underwhelming. Add those 18 on however and we would’ve had a completely different outlook. When your luck’s out.
We currently sit on 1848 for the season with 4 gameweek’s left to play. The challenge is now is getting to the magic 2000 point mark, to try and sneak into the top 1 million and to restore a bit of pride. We roughly need 40 points per week to get there, sounds simple and straight forward…….. if you don’t take -16’s each week.
There’s a great looking fixture for Spurs who entertain relegated Sheff. United. Tottenham’s fixture list going forward is pretty promising so Kane and Son should be in everyone’s thoughts, including ours, I would think.
Chelsea at home to Fulham and City at Palace are point scorers…… so it seems. But, both have Champions league in the week. Don’t be fooled into loading up because it’s a Pep and Tuchel double team waiting to happen. The amount of times we’ve been stung this season, especially by the former, has been a joke. It’s the reason I finally had to admit defeat and remove all City players.
Liverpool v Man U, this weekend, we could have done without.
THIS WEEK’S PICKS
I’ve just given all the spiel about not taking too many minus starts in order to get to 2000. And yet, we go into GW34 with a -8🙄
With the Spurs run in looking so favourable, I had to get Kane and Son back in. Out comes Mané, Watkins and Cavani, in comes the 2 along with Vydra. Lack of finance dictating the latter.
The Spurs duo take the armbands straight away, Kane the captain, Son the vice. Why do I have a feeling putting all my hopes in Tottenham players will come back to bite us on the arse? Ohhh aye, IT’S SPURS LADS. But, we’ll see.
I mentioned the other week we were going back to basics for the run in, well you can’t be more basic than 4-4-f**king-2. That’s how we will line up.
And, In form Allan Saint Maximin retains his place as our Toon representation. what a time to be alive.
GET IN THEIR FACES.
