Just look at his Face! Just look at his Face!

Points: 49 (46 Predicted)
Position: 8th (+1)

A last minute switch to bring Big Vic into the team provided the highlight of my fantasy weekend. After bursting onto the scene last week with a 10 point haul, it seemed logical to get him as my designated bench rotter. However a rush of blood forced a bold move to have him join my strike force, and what a result! 13 glorious points from a 4.5m striker who was without a club all summer. The Nigerian Lukaku spearheaded my team to a solid 49 points. Catching up on the leaders and gaining a place in the league.

THE GOOD

Marcos Alonso, the fantasy gift that keeps giving, brought home another solid haul of points, solidifying his position of an essential FPL asset. Pickford and Evans brought home the bacon, both keeping clean sheets! Meaning the 4 man defence picked up a 21 point haul. Lovely Stuff.

and of course, Victor Anichebe, Big Vic, Anicheboi. YES!

THE BAD

The rest of the team had an absolute shit show. The midfield picked up 9 points.. 9 measly points. Over 34m of fantasy talent, 9 fucking points.. Christ. Ashley Williams frustrates once again, edging closer to the trap door. Joe Allen dropped into the holding 2, getting 1 point and a yellow to rule him out of the next game, potentially ending the Joe Allen love in. Augero blanks yet again! 13.2m!! Howay man, get your act together!! and Benteke rather predictably fails to score against City.

Elsewhere, Capoue sat smugly on my bench as he found his gaolscoring boots once again. 10 points wasted.. The Costa train kept on rolling, serously when will he pick up that 5th yellow, Spurs v Chelsea usually gets spicy so praying for that suspension soon. Son finally got some points after sacking hm off last week, bloody typical..

TRANSFERS

Currently making none, however the temptation might get too much come friday.. That Liverpool v Sunderland fixture looks like a humdinger that I need extra cover for.

OUTLOOK

Looking pretty good for the upcoming GW. Some tasty fixtures and plenty of points on offer.

Heaton comes in for Pickford, neither will keep clean sheets but I’m backing Heaton to pick up more saves when City go to Turf Moor. Alonso welcomes spurs where I expect Chelsea to fianlly concede, however big potential for attacking rertuns from Marcy Marc. Williams goes to St.Marys where he will get a yellow card and finish up on 1 point. Monreal plays Bournemouth, which should be a straight forward clean sheet.. PREDICTION: 12 

Hazard is unplayable at home, so he will get points. He crushed Spurs last year when the 2014/15 Player of the year effectively sealed the 2015/2016 Season with his wondergoal. Firmino will resume his battle with his teammates to see who can bundle the most goals and assists in when Big Vic and the boys come to town. Even with Sunderlands upturn in form, they can’t keep liverpool at bay.. surely.. Capoue comes in for Joe Allen, as he plays Allen’s Stoke. Not expecting much but 3 points is pretty likely. Sanchez really needs to start justifying his price tag, otherwise he’ll be shown the door with other big names doing the business. PREDICTION: 25

Benteke goes to Swansea, where he will no doubt hit the post and scuff at least one sitter. Augero goes to Burnley, where it’ll either be 0-0 or 0-8, praying for the latter as he’ll take the captains armband once again. Big Vic keeps his starting place, Jonny Evans goes to Hull which is porbably the better choice, but wheres the fun in that! Howay Big Vic!! PREDICTION: 16

So overall going for 53 points. I’ve been oddly accurate with these predictions so far, shame there’s no bookies that take FPL predictions..

Pray for Points
