WOULD EVERYONE PLEASE
STOP MISSING PENALTIES!!!
To coin the phrase attributed to Sir Alex Ferguson (but apparently one he actually didn’t say), ‘it’s squeaky bum time’.
GW31 rolled in with plenty of the same headaches all the way up until the 1100 on Saturday deadline.
FFUKers were trying to decipher quotes from Erik Ten Haag on Shaw and Rashford, like he was a modern day Shakespeare. (Spoiler; neither played despite ETH claiming both ‘could feature’). With James, Zinchenko, Akanji and Steele all playing their part in *insert manager name* roulette.
Here were the results and headline makers from an eventful GW31:
With a whopping 36 goals scored this weekend clean sheet points were sparse , however there were some differential top GW point scorers.
Watkins, Eze and Jota all joint highest scored this GW with 16 points, while Solanke (15), Salah (14), Antony (14) and Dalot (14) weren’t far behind. The average ownership of our GW leaders at a mere 9.67%. Is there any better feeling in a GW then picking a differential that hauls? (No, no there isn’t. Shout to my guy Eze!)
But as in every GW, where there are high scorers, there are also ‘not so high scorers’. This week we had some high profile casualties, who failed to perform in ‘favourable games.’ Again, is there a worse feeling then a high profile pick that fails in a favourable fixture? (No, no there isn’t, oh Saka!!)
Trippier (1pt @ 67.7% game ownership), Saka (0pt @ 40.5%), Kane (2pts @ 38.8%), Toney (2pts @ 35.7%) and Mitoma (2pts @ 26.3%).
The run in starts here… 7 GWs to go! With 3 PL teams in FA Cup Semi finals, we have the challenge of 4 blanks in the schedule in GW32.
The big question is ‘How many playing players are enough not to use the FH chip?’
What other week would you use the FH if not GW32?
and is Dominic Solanke now essential?!!
Liverpool look like they’ve found that magic mojo they’ve been missing for a number of months, by hitting form at the, erm, right time?! Shirley they’ll feature heavily for those looking FH in GW32. But who are going to be the valuable differentials for GW32?
GW31 Team of the Week:
Here’s our very own FFUking movers and shakers:
Vikram Marwaha moves back to the top spot with an impressive 84, with Rob Pitt now 7 behind our leader.
Neil Stewart bows out of the Conts race with a fairly feeble 34, sorry Neil!
Then there were 7 Conts… Including, two Cronins! @djpetecronin vs @stevecronin1986hotmailcom!
There was only one tune of the week for me this week, dedicated to the player of the week. Here’s a awfully classic live version of this 90s banger from MNF!
Enjoy! And good luck with GW32
