Bryan Forbes O’Rourke

Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season

34 gameweek points, total points 809, Overall rank 2,091 transfers available 25

A reasonable mid week with 34 points with no transfers used, placed 2091 overall.
Short and sweet again this week. Trippier saved my week with 8 points although I think he is injured again? I should have taken Mane out for a City midfielder. I would consider doing that tomorrow if it were an easier fixture for City so I will hold fire.

It’s a busy time of the year, I have a lot of catch up to do with injuries and news, no transfers planned and hopefully this team can limp through to the new year. Best of luck tomorrow  😊

Sergio Torija

Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football

42 Gameweek points Total Pts 787 Overall rank 4,136 Transfers available 25

A decent 42 points this week given that there were no clean sheets on the week. Rank improvement of 800 places to 4136. All attack returned in some way or another except Mane, who missed on the midweek game and seems likely to also miss Saturday. This was unfortunate, I had a 50-50 choice between him and Shaqiri a week ago, but of course injuries can’t be predicted. Similar story with my other recent Liverpool signing, Gomez, who also got injured and seems long term.

So looks like a double move needed this week. It will be a City mid (Sane or Sterling) plus whichever defender I can fit on the budget, hopefully a top 6 one. Need to spend a bit of time tonight to see which is best option.

Good luck for GW16 Geekers!

Gameweek review

Well that was a strange round of games. Tuesday was an absolute shocker, but luckily things got a bit better after Wednesdays games.

The defence was a virtual write-off, the only saving grace coming from Doherty who was awarded 2 KC’s.

Midfield was more of the same really, with Richarlison’s goal and Hazard’s assist keeping things respectable.

The one shining light was my new striker, Mr Kane. I’ve had a strong feeling that he’s on the edge of a fantasy point fest, and that was a good start.

Team thoughts

I’m being forced in to far too many transfers of late for my liking, but when you’re hit with an injury, there is no choice. The latest is Arnautovic, who I had such high hopes for. On the bright side, it opens the door for my ultimate plan. I shall be bringing in Aubameyang to play alongside Kane in a 4-4-2 formation.

This sits perfectly with my fixture based game this season. I was a few pennies short however, which means the end for Alonso. He’s been on borrowed time for a while now, so I’m happy enough to make that move too. I’ve narrowed his replacement down to two options. The first and safest, is Laporte, £3.7. He should play most games and will hopefully bring in a steady stream of clean sheets. The second, and the more maverick choice is Kolasinac, £3.5. I am hyper aware that Arsenal’s clean sheet record is poor, but this is where the eye test comes in. Since bringing him in as a left wingback, he’s looked really good. Combine this with the wonderful fixtures and fingers crossed, you have the ingredients for a truck load of points, and maybe even a band wagon in the making.

Good luck, and may your arrows be Norwich shorts.
