BGW18 Review / GW19 Preview

BGW18 Review / 99pts / Green Arrow: 380th > 292nd

Transfers (-4):

Horlock > Doherty

This was a no brainer for me. For me, if you do not have Doherty then you are missing out. I would not go as far as saying that it is too late to join in on the fun either, as I believe he will keep returning until the end of the season. Just do not get mardy if he is plays in defence occasionally, or blanks when up top.

Euell > Viduka

With Charlton blanking this GW, I brought in Viduka for Leeds’ home match against Leicester and he did not disappoint.

Despite the high score and the generous green arrow, it could have been much better. I was torn between playing a double Sunderland defence (Thome/Laursen), and dropping one of them for Angel. I ended up dropping Laursen (7pts) for Angel (1pt), whilst also benching Silvestre (6pts) as United got a surprise clean-sheet at Chelsea. Thank God for my Phillips captaincy!
