Apologize for the lack of content this week, but life has gotten in the way of blogging the past week or so. Should be able to get together a Gameweek 30 Team Ratings and preview tomorrow or Friday, but that’s probably it until next week.
The story of this gameweek for me was Sergio Agüero. As discussed in my Gameweek 28 Starting XI article, I decided on the Argentine as captain over several other quality options, with Luis Suárez leading the pack as my vice. With Kun missing out, Suárez and his seventeen points were awarded the captain band with Guy Demel and his clean sheet coming in as a sub. This made a mediocre gameweek solid, increasing my lead over both second and third place to a very comfortable 44 and 111 points, respectively. For once, an injury resulted in a pleasant substitute appearance. I am not apologetic.
Well, I am a little apologetic. I feel quite badly for those that needed Agüero to come through, especially after my tweet the evening before (see screen cap above). Still though, it seems Sergio will be healthy long-term and it is only fantasy football even if it sometimes feels more important. So with that out of the way, let’s get on to the Gameweek review.
Well, that was fun! A terrible game week for most owners, although some were smart enough to transfer in Lambert and Sissoko as well as captain a certain Welshman. For the rest of us, Gameweek 28 was all about damage control and lost opportunities, myself included. Let’s take a look at last week’s games and all have a nice laugh at my team’s pitiful performance.
