WELCOME TO THE GW15 REVIEW – WORLD CLASS TROLLING
So after the midweek Amazon Prime antics of GW14 and with many wounds still raw, we moved swiftly into the throws of GW15.
As my boy Albie Einstein once said:
Some FFUKers clearly ignored the wise words of Albert and continued to tell themselves, ‘Harry Kane is world class, he’s just had a slow start’.
To be exact 26.12% FFUKers started the conqueror of San Marino, while 10% of you even gave him the captains armband against a lowly Norwich at Home.
Well ‘H’ did not disappoint… those that didn’t own him that is, by posting his 12th non return out of a possible 13 weeks, with the only exception being his 12 point haul against Newcastle. And to summarise the thoughts of his owners, here’s another fine scholar in Daron Russell;
“FFUK you Kane!!! And the cockerel you rode in on!”
With the average GW score in the games top 10k at a messily 47.6 points, you know it was a tough week.
Salah left it late but his assist for Origi against Wolves meant ‘Always Captain Salah’ has now returned in 14 of 15 weeks, and even the game he didn’t assist or score, he got a clean sheet. Just imagine what he could do in San Marino.
Yet again we were let down by the usually tight rear guards of Chelsea and City, with the former losing to West Ham 3-2 and the latter giving the Watford fans a consolation goal to cheer about. However, Mount’s goal and 13 points plus, form boy, Bilva’s 2 goals (15 points) boosting many FPL teams.
Our favourite movie character Wilson was once again on the score sheet and bagging 3 bonus points as Newcastle finally won a game again Burnley. With Fabian Schar getting the accidental assist, bagging 11 points at 0.2% ownership
United have a new hero in Fred, yes that Fred, as he scored a worldie against Palace. With Rangnick at the helm, United assets are ones to be watched in the next few weeks.
With Toney’s COVID absence screwing many people over in their game against Leeds, the headlines went to the returning Bamford (now injured again) scoring a late equaliser (assisted by Raphina, who else!), and it was late Maupay’s equaliser against Livermento’s Southampton wiping off even more CS points.
Moura, Son and Sanchez did the business against Dean Smith’s Norwich, with Ben ‘Alphoso’ Davies picking up a cool 15 points with 0.9% ownership.
Villa vs Leicester on Sunday saw The Brodge take on his ex Captain at Liverpool, Gerrard. Harvey Barnes opened the scoring but it was the week’s top boy in Konsa who got 2 goals and a CS, bagging a whopping 17 points at 0.7% ownership.
The MNF football game saw Everton host Arsenal. And if you ever need a win, call 0800-Arsenal (or ‘Better Call Arsenal’ for Breaking Bad fans). Trustpilot reviews say;
‘They really made sure we got the win we needed, giving us a bit of a scare on the way but kept true their promise’ Mr M Carrick
‘We’d hadn’t won in two but they came to ours, rolled over and even cleaned the dressing room up after. Would recommend’. Mr J N Klopp.
Arsenal took the lead against Everton with Martin Odegaard netting his 2nd in 2 games, but after that pesky VAR had denied Richarlison twice, he got his goal from a Gray assist and it Gray’s last minute thunderbolt that won it for Everton.
Here are the Kings of the Game Week.
Early team news for GW16 seems to be Covid related, Toney already ruled out while a number of Tottenham players reported to have tested positive. However, Kane is reported to be perfectly fine so make sure you all lock and load!!!
And of course where there are winners, there are Conts, and this weeks cont evictees are Sam Fletcher and Simon Pascoe with 37 and 39 respectively. Some of you inc our leader Chris Galloway (with 40) got very lucky!
Now a word for this year’s leading pack in the main league.
Top scorer for GW15 was Mark Leathem (154th) scoring 79 points. Leafy gave the armband to Salah but also owned Son, Mount, TAA, Gray and Wilson. Best GW score 2 GWs in a row is some serious form
Kevin Flynn (1st) holds on to top spot with 3 chasing him down. Just 21 points separating the top 7.
All the best in GW16 but this week’s song choice is for the unsung and unlikely Heroes of GW15… Konsa, Fred, Maupay, Bamford, Davies, Schar, Origi and Gray.
David Bowie, Heroes.
(Given the number of transfers some might need to make this week, feel free to listen to Changes afterwards!!!)
