Although, someone might have to remind me how to play this game. I thought it’d be worth the 8 point hit making another three transfers. They seemed like a good idea at the time. I’m now relegation fodder. Almost got it right – went all out on Everton – just picked the wrong bastard players. I’ve been a bit transfer happy this season – a bit too “tinkerman”. I’m leaving them alone for a few weeks. It’s an international break after this next gameweek. That’s when my season starts. And to think, I thought I had an outside chance of Manager of the Month…

…And that award goes to Bermie United, who held off a strong challenge from Les Canaris to hold on to the lead in the monthly league table, thus…

And the Manager of the week award goes to Shadwell Town, who still hasn’t made any transfers – that’s none in 44 gameweeks. Yet, their score of 67 is enough to win them the weekly award, and push them up into mid-table.

It was another unfathomable week. Only two clean sheets. Anyone with a Stoke or Sunderland defender? Not many of us. Other than Ryan Shawcross (in 18% of teams) and Asmir Begovic (in 8% of teams), FPL managers across the board aren’t keen on a red and white striped defence. Yet, almost 20% of teams still have Vincent Kompany. That’s Vincent “no-clean-sheets-no-bonus-points-still-in-single-figures-and-all-for-a-whopping-seven-million” Kompany.

At the other end of the pitch Luis Suarez stopped diving, cheating and being a general scumbag, whilst all the time hitting the post and the side netting, to finally give Liverpool fans something to smile about. He was the week’s top scorer. Demba Ba becomes the top scoring player, bagging another two goals, his fifth in three games, and picking up his fourth triple bonus point tally in six games. Peter Crouch scored two, and if the England team was picked on FPL points, Crouchy would be in it. And Steven Fletcher gets another mention – he’s played four times for Sunderland, scored in every one, and got full bonus marks every time. Who needs those 10 million plus big boys when you can spend 7 or 8 million on these players, and be almost guaranteed a goal and bonus every week?

  • Player of the week. Luis Suarez – 20 points. The second hat trick of the season and the second 20+ score of the season
  • Bargain of the week. Peter Crouch – 13 points. Still only 6.6 million
  • Donkey of the week. Samba Diakite – -2 points. 20 minutes, then off.

Goal of the weekend

Could have been Demba Ba, but I’m trying to be unbiased.

Sorry. Couldn’t resist.
