Gameweek 13

Now that is more like it!!!…….An average gameweek score of 64 points, rounded off by an explosive 4-4 draw between Chelsea & Man City……….an ice cool penalty, an even cooler celebration against his former club, and a neat bit of espionage from Cole Palmer……….suddenly he’s this week’s second most transferred in player, just behind free scoring Jarrod Bowen. Meanwhile, going the other way are Maddison, Romero, and Son as their title challenge goes into freefall, and they are transferred out in their droves ……..”Lads, it’s Spurs”……….ringing in their ears!!………… Oh and what a goal by Sarabia, absolutely loved that!!

In the Evie Dove Foundation League ‘DC United’ stamped their authority, an overall score of 815 points extending their lead to 49 points, and keeping them in the top 3k worldwide………You are doing us very proud ‘DC’, especially as you’ve done all of that without Haaland!……… 

In joint second place we have ‘Kloppenheimer’ and ‘Pigslayers’ both on 766 points, looking at those three teams Haaland and Salah will play a very big role in their performance over the next few weeks……this week it was honours even, with 143 of you choosing one or the other, and benefiting from a lovely captaincy 32 point haul.

As for the November prize, ‘WHU Tang Clan’ piled in with the highest score of the gameweek on 104 points and takes a 2 point lead into the final week………..with ‘Dutch of Class’, ‘KerrTFC’ and ‘VSquad’ in hot pursuit………..Great to see two of our ‘Clattenburg Trophy’ contenders ‘Syrup FC’ and ‘’ in the mix too…….

Bench Boost to sneak the £50 prize anyone???????

However, just remember If you do go down the Bench Boost route, there are no guarantees……..this week we had three more ‘BB’ chips thrown into the ring, and ‘three’ was indeed the magic number with ‘Real LeBab’, ‘Evanton’ and ‘Tommy’s Hotspurs’ all equalling the lowest bench boost score of the season……….my favourite was ‘Tommy’s’, whose bench boost score of 3 was made up entirely of Pickford (2) and Tarkowski (1)…… as Michail Antonio would say (or possibly not…..) “Man’s got to shout. Man’s gotta shout!!!!!!”

So just over a week to go until it all starts again – an 11:00 deadline on Saturday morning pre Man City v Liverpool at 12:30………hang on in there people, just when you thought an international break could not get any worse we were subjected to England v Malta……almost, but not quite as excruciating as Mikel Arteta congratulating the officials and suggesting that we need to have a bit more humour……..wind it in Mikel!!!!

And finally, I am delighted to confirm that we have now allocated the money raised from this season’s Fantasy Football League to Rowen Seglah, a new Evie Dove Foundation Hero. The money we raised between us will go towards Rowen’s masters in cancer care, which will make a huge difference to many poorly children in the future. Thank you again to all of you for getting involved.

Good luck this week and all the best from all of us at the Evie Dove Foundation.
