Things We Like

  1. If we had to choose one member of our FPL squad to score a goal, we’re glad our captain selection scored the goal. In all honesty, we considered choosing Richarlison as captain due to his easy matchup against Cardiff and playing at home. Thank God we didn’t because we would have lost out on ten total points.

Things We Hate

  1. We looked to transfer in either Ben Chilwell or Lucas Digne (Everton) to replace Benjamin Mendy due to Mendy being out for the next few months. We took a more long-term fixture view in bringing in Chilwell, but this week, that decision cost us six total points.
  2. Speaking of Mendy, this is the second time this season we’ve had to burn a transfer on him. If we ever have three Man City players in our squad again, we’ll use them all on attackers and midfielders.
  3. We needed our goalie, Joe Hart, to get a clean sheet against Newcastle. Our goalie choices have been poor overall this season, and they’ve been our downfall in our head-to-head league.

Looking Forward

After thirteen game weeks, we are still in 2nd place. Unfortunately, we lost sixteen points on first place, and are now down fifty points on the season. However, our squad is in great position to make a run at 1st place, especially since we still have our wildcard chip.

Barring injuries, we plan to hold on to our wildcard for as long as possible. We also have 2.2M in the bank and will look to retool our lineup to add a premium player. We’re hoping that the premium player we select will get hot during the busy Christmas season.

Recall that the squad in 1st place after Game Week 20 will receive $450, and the team in 1st at the end of the Premier League season also gets $450.
