My first rubbish Gameweek of the season so far. The source of the frustration was the last minute change of heart over bringing in Eriksen. Instead opting for Walcott, in reaction to his goal last Monday night. I considered Walcott a better hedge against Sanchez points, however Sanchez then scores a hattrick while Walcott does nothing in a Five goal match. Meanwhile Eriksen goes and scores Seventeen points. Maddening. It happens to everyone from time to time so im sure you all know how it feels.
The following sending off of Aguero had an instant impact on plans going forward. Suddenly having Walcott clearly now makes no sense as he was purely a value play. With the huge influx of Aguero money there is now no excuse not to own Sanchez. With that in mind I have already made Two transfers for this week. Walcott and Aguero out, Costa and Sanchez in. Although in hindsight I should probably have given some consideration for De Bruyne as an alterntaive to Sanchez, however with prices moving so fast there was little time for anything other than the obvious.
As for Fuchs, 1,0, 0, 0 has been his scores since he was bought in. At the time he was top of the Fantasy scout watchlist and his Three previous home scores were 12, 6, 8. Incredible. Sadly the injury to Aguero and other needs means I am stuck with him for a week or Two longer
Kane was the overwhelming popular pick, and he delivered with Two goals. In truth it could easily have been Three or Four. We are seeing some real rubbish defending this season, with some big hammerings taking place (No pun intended).
Bonkers stuck with Hazard who did at least find the net and picked up a couple of bonus points. . The only failure was the playing the worst team selection of Negredo who came up blank.
The Robot’s team had another good week with 71 points. Note that this was without Sanchez or Kane as captain and shows there are so many options this season, that there are multiple ways to a good score, although my own team failed to find one.
Once again there are no weak links in the front Seven so there will be another defensive transfer this week. Hopefully it will work out better than the last one (Fuchs). Th injured Friend will be the player removed.
