Woe is me.
Gameweeks where you score in the 20s are never good.
I missed an update last week because of the week only ending hours before the next one. That was a relatively painless week. The tiniest of red arrows. That’s NOT the case this week.
A Red Arrow so spectacular that it is wanted by the RAF.
The gameweek rank over 6million has led me to fall from 118k to 184k. My vague hopes for a top 50k finish now look like a pipe dream. The decision to bring in Vardy for Kane and ignore the Siren call of Iheanacho has bit me firmly on the bum.
My other transfer was to bring in Tyrone ‘own goal’ Mings. It was that kind of week.
Nothing positive to talk about, really. So on to next week.
Raphinha seems to have one of those annoying injuries that you just don’t know when they will clear up. Given I have no free hit, I feel my only option is to bring in a player from the four teams that have an extra fixture, so I have gone for Sigurdsson. Everton have a decent enough run of fixtures and I need a differential.
Eagle-eyed readers will see that means I haven’t now got Kane for their match against SU. I have to pray he’s not fully fit. I am attempting to limit the damage by captaining Son, but it still feels like a sofa job.
Good luck to everyone!
