Are Aquamar about to throw this thing away? The gap is now 12 – just 12 points to When Harry Met Alli. And 25 to The Craggy Islanders. Aquamar have been posting good scores but have been taking a crazy amount of hits to achieve them. They opted to take another three this week to add to the eleven of the previous three weeks at a cost of 36 points. Have they got their chip and wildcard tactics all wrong?
In the same four week stretch WHMA have made 5 changes, costing them 4 points. They bench boosted their way to the highest weekly score of 100 points this week. The four subs collected 18 of those points. We’ll have to wait and see whether that would have been better left for next week.
And that’s because of those Craggy Islanders. Making just three changes with no points deducted in the last four weeks, they played their wildcard this week enabling them to set up nicely for next week’s double GW37. At present they’ve 13 players set to play twice. I expect that to be 15 at kick off. And they have their bench boost in waiting.
There was a wide range of scores this week. This highest – the 70, 80 and 90+ totals came to those that played the double gameweek, utilising their chips and wildcards cleverly. Sanchez lead the captain picks and didn’t disappoint. Arsenal defenders contributed too. Two clean sheets was perhaps unexpected. Just watch them finish fourth. Jack Stephens and Maya Yoshida were popular choices. They were far too cheap to ignore and returned well. There was an extra bonus for those that took a punt on Fraser Forster, with the Saints keeper scaring the shit out of James Milner, then saving his penalty.
Player of the week – Fraser Forster – 17 points. Double gameweek – keeper wins again.
Bargain of the week – Rob Holding – 15 points. In till the end?
Donkey of the week – Lys Mousset – -1 points. Striker own goal. Ooops.
Goal of the week – Vincent Kompany. In till the end?
