What a nightmare season this has turned into. My wildcard could not have gone any worse with only my Spurs players and single gameweek Liverpool players scoring me anything. A gameweek rank of 5.9m says it all. Wolves and Brighton were dreadful and then Deeney capped it off with a red card, a simply unbelievable gameweek. I would have made the same decisions again so no regret there, just maybe used the wildcard at the wrong time. My pre-wildcard team would have bagged me around 50 points more…
On to GW35 and a big double gameweek. My plan was to bench boost this gameweek however my bench is looking pretty bleak so I don’t seem the point; as I have been struggling to find a good time to use my triple captain chip I will be using it this week now on either Jiminez or my sub in, Aguero for Vardy. Son is also a good option though may have more reduced minutes than the other two. I really want Sterling back but can’t fit him in without hits and to me Spurs home game next week against West Ham is better than City’s away to Burnley so I’m going to keep Eriksen instead for the time being. My plan now will likely to bench boost in GW36 when Brighton host Newcastle; their final decent remaining fixture.

Another good week with City and Liverpool doing well on the Sunday for me allowing me to hold a decent rank. I made two transfers this weekend, firstly Azpilicueta to Jota and whilst this didn’t pay off immediately, Wolves have great fixtures for the remainder of the season. I also transferred out Jesus to Aguero which was unlucky as Jesus came on and scored. I have an excellent set of fixtures for my team this week with all having two games (including Liverpool v Huddersfield next Friday night) so I am hoping to comfortably break the top 100 by the end of the week, fingers crossed.
With City crashing out of the Champion’s League I expect them to go full strength for the league run-in so I am very happy having good representation of them. My planner tells me that after Liverpool play Huddersfield, City then have four games left to Liverpool’s two, of which they may rest Salah/Mane/TAA due to the Champion’s League semi-final ties against Barca. With this in mind I will likely switch out Mane to De Bruyne for a big assault on those final City fixtures and FA Cup final.
I would ideally like Son for the Brighton and West Ham games but I don’t have enough transfers or funds for this and the other moves. He will also likely be rested for the Bournemouth game in GW37 for Ajax. My other transfer could potentially be used on something like Robertson to Bernardo or Walker.

Not a good weekend for me with my Jimenez Saturday cap blanking whilst Pogba cappers in particular got a little lucky as Kane’s cap replacement. Sunday was better with the Sterling cap and Liverpool clean sheets although it was TAA who cleaned up with the bonus. My lack of transfers is now starting to tell as I crawl towards the end of the season but am still hopeful for a decent finish.
My final decision is whether to take out Kane for Son, Aguero or Salah. Aguero may play more as the other two have Champion’s League games but I do have Sterling as cap cover which is a factor. I don’t have any Spurs players and they do have two plum home fixtures on Tuesday and Saturday and whilst Salah hosts Huddersfield on Friday I do have Robertson and Allison as back-up. I will likely switch out Kane for Son on Saturday when the line-ups come out. My caps this weekend will likely be Sterling or Jimenez, Robertson, Hazard, Son and Jimenez.
Sun Dream Team
Weekly Score: 105 Overall Rank: 46,803
A average week although there were points aplenty thanks to Liverpool and City. Chelsea defence was shocking which saw a slip but I am glad I held off on bringing in Kane. Multiple games again this gameweek so a chance for more gains across the board.
My final April transfer will be Azpilicuata to Son, a no-brainer.
Sun Dream Team
Weekly Score: 114 Overall Rank: 2,770
Same as above in regard to returns over the weekend and week to come.
The final April transfer will be Jesus to Son.
I will confirm all my transfers on Twitter (my Twitter handle is @Fergi222, give me a follow!) by the respective deadlines so keep an eye out.
Good luck everyone for GW35!
