FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19
Welcome to the FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team Gameweek 19. After picking up a red arrow in GW17 it was back to our favourite colour green in GW18. A score of 60 saw us finish 8pts above the average. Admittedly it was a small green arrow but at this difficult time of the season we’ll take whatever we can get.
Our game-week got off to a poor start as Danny Simpson & Leicester yet again failed to keep a clean sheet. Saturday afternoon saw our captain Eden Hazard fail to sparkle and we were forced to make do with just an assist. Andreas Christensen pitched in with 8pts but Shaqiri & Richarlison did nowt. Raheem Sterling left it late but we were happy to wait as he rewarded us with two goals as City spanked Harry Kane and Spurs.
Sunday afternoon saw Mo Salah score his customary goal although we were a little perturbed as Roberto Firmino, who we sold on Friday, picked up 12pts. This meant our keeper Asmir Begovic picked up just 1pt.
And that brought us to Monday night and Wayne Rooney. I think one of our management team best summed up Rooney on twitter… “Probably the worst 1 goal, 2 assist game I have seen someone play. Misses pen and gets a BS assist. Passes the ball to Siggy and Siggy does all the work. Fair assist, but even Fellaini can make that pass. Then scores on a pen from a foul that was outside the box”.
Last weeks result…
This week’s transfer – we have sold Simpson and bought Masuaku
Well that was easy! One suggestion, agreed by all, the quickest meeting we’ve ever had. Guessing everyone just wanted to get back to the boozer asap and agree to anything. Let’s be fair Simpson and Leicester have looked awful at the back and last week’s 3-0 loss at home to Palace was the last straw. All we needed to do was to identify his replacement and canny old us even upped the coffers by 0.1mln by buying Masuaku. With three clean sheets on the bounce and with a DGW on the horizon we think we’re buying proactive and smart. No doubt something will occur to bite us, like a red card or injury, but whatever. Masuaku goes straight into our starting XI. Just in case anyone didn’t see last weeks West Ham game, the bloke played like a young Gareth Bale, on speed. Now ok, this may have been a one off but with the Moyes ethic of work hard and run, or don’t play, then we are relatively hopeful with this one.
The team in full
And so this is how we line up ahead of GW19…
Our Captain is Raheem Sterling
What has the world come to? We have Kane in our team, Hazard in our team, the league’s leading scorer in our team. And we have captained Sterling. Either we have completely lost our marbles or Pep is a genius. Or we are! We are risking rotation. We are risking Sterling doing what he does best and missing easy chance after easy chance. We are truly playing with fire. Which usually means getting burnt. We shall see. City have a good fixture, playing Bournemouth at the Etihad while Sterling has scored 11 goals already this season including two last week at Spurs. So the form is there. As is the fixture. We are following all the traditional FPL rules. But this is Sterling…… wish us luck!
