Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW23 points: 81 (FPL average 56) Total points 1,470, Overall Rank: 44k, green arrow 20k Team Value: £104.1m
Here’s the points:
In summary, a 20k green arrow to an overall rank of 44k. Total points 1,470
The disappointment of the gameweek was breaking my own rules about bench lineup. Soucek was £2.90 Anytime to Score and Calvert Lewin £2.70 so Calvert Lewin should have started not Soucek. However I deviated from my policy due to the last gameweeks Soucek’s points haul.
2 free transfers and £2.3m in the bank
So this week the transfer I have been clear in my own mind on has been Button out and Pope in for his 2 excellent doublegameweek fixtures. I’ve kept Martinez not only for his ability to generate points but also because he will have 3 double gameweeks before the end of the season.
The next transfer was difficult potentially due to injuries.
Dias seems like he’ll be ok as Pep implied in his usual vague mannner:
“Fernandinho is out, Ruben Dias came back and Sergio Aguero made his second training session with us. Apart from Fernandinho, Nathan and Kevin de Bruyne, I think the rest of the first-team squad is available.”
Antonio was reasonable positive from Moyes:
“Michail is doing well, he’s had some time on the grass so hopefully he’ll be close for the weekend.”
Calvert Lewin though looks definitely out for Fulham and seemingly like for City which is pretty useless
He said: “Dominic only had a sensation in his hamstring, a feeling that something wasn’t good. However, it is only a little problem and he will be able to play on Wednesday (against Man City).”
In the end I did the Pope transfer. I was so tempted to do Calvert Lewin to Cavani and tempted back and forth but I decided to keep 2 transfers for the fixture announcements next week
I went for the captain favourite in the FFGeek Captain poll of Gundogan with Fernandes rather than Pope as vice which was a close call
I decided to play Son v Man City with Kane back and to bench Calvert Lewin with him only likely to play City. City After that it was bookies odds Coufal vs Antonio vs Bamford vs Soucek vs Walker Peters vs Dallas. Dallas and Walker Peters ended up on the bench
Here’s the team:
Best of luck everyone!
