BLOGIN FANTASY FOOTBALL (Gameweek 36)

We’re back!!

I’m not going to say too much this week, we’ll just let the figures do the talking

Theres only a couple of points I want to make in relation to GW35. The first is the buzz of hitting the tonne. We a had a few earlier in the season and it can be easy it take them for granted. When you have the sort of baron run we’ve had recently it’s a bloody sweet feeling.

The second point is it could have been even better because the week started pretty poorly to be honest. Of our starting defenders, Evans was injured in the warm up, Kabak was injured, didn’t play, and Maguire, who was in line for the big triple threat of points, got injured in the first of those games. In the end it became the big triple threat of injuries. To make matters worse, the bench only contributed 3 points, with 18 left lingering and unaccounted for. It goes to show, positioning your substitutes correctly can gain/save you big points at times.

Anyway that’s knit-picking. 100 points!

LOOKING AHEAD.

As I said earlier, I’m trying to keep this short and sweet this week, letting the RAFA FACTS do the talking. The only thing to be aware of in game week 36 is that there are no fixtures for Man United, Chelsea, Leicester or Arsenal, this is due to the FA Cup final – Another sizeable negative starting point incoming.

THIS WEEKS PICKS.

Another -12 and here it is

GW 36

As you can see it’s a 3 pronged spurs attack with Calvert-Lewin leading out the team. Nothing much to say, except SAME AGAIN, LADS.

GET IT IN THE MIXER.

BLOGIN FANTASY FOOTBALL (Triple Gameweek 35)

FPL gaffers, how do? Welcome again.

So we have, if memory serves me right, an unprecedented TRIPLE gameweek incoming. This is the result of the ongoing European Super League fallout and the subsequent fan protests that followed. Man United, who were already pencilled in for a doubler, had their match against Liverpool postponed in GW34 and the rearranged fixture now gives them 3 game triple threat in 35.

It’s the sort of ACT OF GOD outcome needed for those chasing packs and in a tight title races…….. Unfortunately we are in neither and even managed to slip a place to 4th in the office mini league after another average week just gone.

Still, we plug on. We actually scored 43 in a gameweek’s average of 39. Not bad, not great, but GW35 is now an exciting proposition and one that certainly got my juices flowing.

LOOKING AHEAD.

As mentioned, Man United have a massive 3 matches in GW35, Villa, Leicester and Liverpool being the opposition. By no means easy fixtures but it’s effectively a free triple captain.

Not only do we have the treble but elsewhere, it’s a busy week. 8 teams have double games. We’ve got nothing to lose, we are loading up and taking a big negative starting point that’s for sure.

THIS WEEK’S PICKS

Since gameweek 29 our season has capitulated and, along with unforeseen unluckiness, we (I) have made some big managerial blunders. Eye off the ball, tatical suicide, that sort of stuff. This week is no different.

I had made 4 changes for a -12 and then realised I only had 2 Man United players in the lineups. It means either sticking at -12 or taking another -4 (total -16) to get the 3rd manc man in. We haven’t made the call yet so all changes are as it stands. We’ll make the final decision closer to transfer deadline.

The four transfers made so far are.

CALVERT-LEWIN for VYDRA

SIGURDSSON for SON

KABAK for TARGETT

KEANE for CHILWELL.

For now, Fernandes will be captain, whilst our TOON players (who only have 1 fixture) will have to make do with a place on the bench.

EDIT: You know what, f**k it. -16, we go in with no regrets.

CAVANI for KANE. Now we are fully loaded.

ROUTE ONE LADS.
