Just a quick review article on how we did on a turgid Gameweek 2 in FPL – as usual, we are podding tonight and will embellish further then 🙂
Rise/Fall: Rise of 69k places
Nick says: “Once again I received a get out of jail free card from one of my defenders, with an Alonso brace saving me and turning my Gameweek from a poor one to a slightly above average one. Other than my captain Lukaku scoring and another Ben Foster clean sheet, the rest of my team blanked meaning it wasn’t a game week to savour. Happy to somehow escape with a small green arrow.”
Rise/Fall: Fall of 500k places
Tom says: “It’s early days so the drop isn’t as bad as it seems, despite looking dramatic! A 40 pointer in a poor Gameweek all round isn’t too terrible, with at least Gabbiadini earning himself a stay of execution and Dawson continuing to keep it tight at the back for me. With 2FTs burning a hole in my pocket, changes are afoot – I took out the non-starter Salah for Pogba on Saturday night to catch the rise, and am looking around for what to do next; young Ryan Fraser is possibly the next on the chopping block, with the new man at Watford Richarlison perhaps my new punt. Roll on Gameweek 3!”
Rise/Fall: Rise of ~200k places
Team Manager Palpatine says: “Despite my misfortune with the Vardy party not continuing a second week, and Harry Maguire on the bench with that mammoth score, I’m reasonably happy with what’s transpired, with the green arrow continuing to show that there are some skills with the Force that you cannot learn from a Jedi. An instant return from transfer in Anthony Martial, continued double digit returns from Mkhi and the boys’ fave Allan Nyom getting all 3 bonus for WBA really helped me out this week.”
The WaG Pick
Alexandre Lacazette scored 2 for the WaGs as their pick blanked for the second week in a row. They cumulatively have 5 points now.
Kaku scored 6 for Nick and Tom. This puts Nick at 7 (overtaking the WaGs!) and Tom at 20.
Tune in tomorrow (hopefully) when the pod is live for further discussion!
Hope your Gameweeks were OK!
