GW27 REVIEW – DON’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER

Welcome to the

GW27 REVIEW –

DON’T LOOK BACK IN ANGER

Slip inside the eyes of Pep’s mind and you know you might find a better captain to pick.

You said that Cancelo was your best defender and I gave him the armband and watched the points slowly fade away. 

So I start a selection revolution from my bed. 

I’l bring in Mahrez, Phil Foden and big Kev.

Only for you to drop them and melt my head.

And so Salah can wait

He knows it’s too late to make a difference to my team

 But don’t look back in anger

It’s just a game. 

With an OR rank of 385k going into GW27 I had to try something different. Knowing the majority of sensible Managers would give the armband to Gundy, I choose Joao Cancelo. Man Utd don’t score against the big 6 right? Cancleo had a rest a week ago. Gundy has reverted to a deeper midfield role now KEVIN is back. Queue incoming 1 pointer and a benching for the 2nd game week. Not that it mattered as Man City are now as porous at the back as Leeds United letting in 4 goals over the GW. In the end, considering Gundy played 180 mins and CIty were involved in 10 scoring actions, his 10 points were not as damaging as might have been and I at least owned him as coverage. I think a lot of Managers will be feeling a change of strategy is now due regarding their city assets. Stay of execution granted for the Fulham game but after that….. Salah to Kevin looks obvious, simple and sensible. What could go wrong?  

It’s tight at the top of FFUK. Almost as tight as Scott Parker’s jacket. Mr. Stats, Steve Cronin extends his lead at the top. Daz no doubt cursed his luck as McCathy came of fthe bench to deny him of Mr points aka Martinez off his bench. Resident Chairman Chris Galloway meanwhile is just 2 points further adrift and is the people’s favourite to take the FFUK crown. Holding onto all his chips tighter than a first-grader outside the tuck shop, Chris didn’t even make a single transfer this week. 

FF UK 20/21

Leeds United‘s best efforts couldn’t save my gameweek. The whites had an unlucky (BS) VAR call early on and just couldn’t put their chances away. Creswell looks like a quality asset to consider bringing in and I can’t think of one good reason why I haven’t previously. 

Best Gameweek Score
Big Congrats to Blakey, who not only had a very savvy pick in JWP but also showed faith in Phil (eternally rotated for some unknown reason) Foden. 105 points saw Sam almost half his rank to 177k overall. 

Where were you last week Harry? Mr. Kane turned up a week late to frustrate last week’s captianers and triple captainers with his 19 point haul against miserable Crystal Palace. 

CONTS
It’s a goodbye from me for Tom Newman in the CONTS. Despite a very tidy pick in JWP, he got shafted by Pep and Raheem with another captain fail, proving costly. 

Thanks for reading,

Damo

Fulham’s defence is now tighter than Scott Parker’s jacket.
