Gameweek 25

We are halfway through February, the evenings are getting lighter, spring is on its way, even Chris Wilder was in celebratory mood, planning on sinking at least six pints on the journey home to celebrate a long awaited away win, ‘sandwichgate’ a distant memory…….AND we have a DOUBLE GAMEWEEK to look forward to with Liverpool, Man City, Brentford and Luton all featuring twice in GW25.

Before we get to that, let’s have a very quick look back at GW24, an average of 62 points, with highest score in the Evie Dove League going to ‘A.Wengers Endgame’ & GW1 leader ‘Dom’s Dynamos’ with 97 points, although just one back on 96 points was ‘Warnocks Warriors’ enough to put them in pole position for the February £50 prize, closely followed by November winner ‘VSquad’. Two gameweeks to go before the cash gets paid out, plenty of opportunities to come out of the pack and take the spoils!!

At the top of the Evie Dove League we have a brand new leader, step forward ‘Didier Dshamps’, the latest team to land a punch on last seasons champ ‘Sonny & Schar’, they’ll be slugging it out just like Liverpool and Manchester City in what could prove to be a decisive weekend in both leagues!

So on to GW25, some big decisions to be made, Liverpool bookend the GW away at Brentford and away at Luton, whilst Man City have got TWO HOME GAMES against Chelsea and Brentford. Last week 93 of you went for Captain Haaland and if you have not got him back in yet surely this is the time to not only break the bank, but also to consider the ‘TRIPLE CAPTAIN’ chip????……… Or will you go against the grain………Foden, De Bruyne, Jota, Darwin Nunez (………….yes even Darwin Nunez) are all viable alternatives.

Of course if you really want to load up on Liverpool, Man City, Luton and Brentford players you could also opt for your ‘FREE HIT’ and see if you can reel in  ‘Odergaardium Leviosa’, currently leading the hunt for that particular £75 prize on 89 points. To complicate matters further, bear in mind also that Liverpool, Luton, Spurs and Chelsea do not have a match in Gameweek 26, so please take care that in building a fantastic team in GW25 you don’t end up undoing all the good work just one gameweek later!!

With that I’ll leave you to it……….you need all the time you can get!!

Good luck everyone, your deadline is 11:00 on Saturday morning, and all the best from all of us at the Evie Dove Foundation
