Gameweek 17

Well it took until GW16 to get it but finally we have a bit of captaincy excitement!!……….

137 of you had Haaland as your captain who was out unexpectedly injured……….Vice Captaincy is an easy one to forget about, or make a quick decision on, but it just shows how important it is…….. Well done to the 43 of you that had VC Salah (26 points)……. the 6 of you that had VC Son (34 points)………..and commiserations to ‘XE Foot’ and ‘Three Chumbers’ who had VC Trippier, who was left spinning by the South Korean for minus 2 points!!…….

Two Haaland Triple Captains too with ‘Der F’ faring better than ‘KTKikkas’ with Son (51 points) massively outscoring Saka (6 points)………….spare a thought also for ‘Better than Figo’ who managed to get Haalands zero points and Lascelles minus one off the bench with an unfortunately timed ‘Bench Boost’ …………at least marauding full back Udogie stepped up with 9 points to address the balance a little!!

Gameweek 16 also saw the third of of a fixture congested seven gameweeks for the £50 December prize, and it was team of the week ‘FC Toni Basel’ who took pole position with an impressive weekly score of 78 points, and overall December score of 187.

They were closely followed by ‘Haven’t Jota Clue’ and ‘Overgaardium Leviosa’ who is also still our front runner for the £75 prize for ‘Best Free Hit’………..’Team Feaver’ were the only team to challenge for this title this GW, but sadly came in with a miserable Free Hit of 18 points, which included transferring 17 point Son out of their GW15 team……..oh well at least you get him straight back in for GW17!!!

Full December view here – great to see some different team names in the running for a prize!

In the Clattenburg Trophy, no sooner were we hailing ‘’ as one of the brightest new young managers in the game, when in the blink of an eye they conceded a 24 point advantage to old hand ‘Still No Changes’ who leant on all that experience, in yet another week of complete inactivity!!!

Moving onto Gameweek 17, we’ve got a tonne to consider – Haaland injured, goalkeepers dropping like flies, the Man City and Brentford blank in GW18, the busy Christmas schedule likely to play havoc with minutes on the pitch, a flood of players on four yellow cards meaning they are one more away from suspension before the slate is wiped clean again after GW19, and the AFCON and Asian Cup impacting GW21-24………………..and all that Christmas shopping, eating and drinking to fit in too!!!!

Good luck everyone, you might just need it………your deadline is 18:30 tonight, could be a busy day ahead!!

All the best from all of us at the Evie Dove Foundation
