Our last three captaincy choices have scored 1, 2 and 1 respectively. So we really need to make sure we select our captains better in future. This week, we captained Bony, and he lasted 24 minutes before pulling his hamstring. Nightmare!
There weren’t too many players in our good books this week. Butland (10) didn’t concede and picked up 3 bonus points in their win over Chelsea. Lukaku (8) and Vardy (9) made up the only other decent point scorers by both finding the net.
We managed 44 points, when the overall average was 45, meaning we dropped a few places. We’re now just inside the top 20,000 places out of over 3.5 million people. Safe to say we are still happy with our side.
GAMEWEEK 13 TRANSFERS
We said last week that we weren’t making a change because of the international break that was coming up. So often your side picks up injuries while the players are away, and this break was no different. Bony, Vardy, Hazard, Sanchez and Koscielny are all doubts for this weekends fixtures. So we must now decide who to get rid of.
You may remember last week, we said we are giving Bony one last chance to perform otherwise he’s out. Well, we’re going to stick to our word. He will be replaced by Harry Kane. The Spurs front man seems to be finding his form again and we’re hoping he continues to do so.
The other transfer is a tougher one. Sanchez, at 11.4, is very expensive if he’s going to be rested but has favourable fixtures coming up. Hazard is in horrible form but has easy fixtures in the near future. De Bruyne is fit but not really performing all that well and doesn’t have ideal fixtures. Tough one, but we’ve decided to bring Mata in for KdB.
Lukaku to get double points for us this week, Hazard will be vice captain.
