Gameweek 35

Wow………apart from Virgil Van Dijk, and Nottingham Forest, I think it is fair to say that everyone enjoyed that gameweek!!!! 

Some amazing scores out there, and I’m afraid to say ‘M’chickenbappe’ no sooner had your feasted your eyes on the £75 for top gameweek……. it has immediately slipped through your fingers………well played ‘Jesus Rice’st’ who from the depths of league stole a march on all of us with a cracking GW score of 155 points…… the ONLY team in our league entrusting the captaincy to four goal Mateta……sometimes it just pays to be different……congratulations “Rice’st’ with four game weeks to go it is yours to lose!

As for you ‘Notorious RBB’ it is safe to say that your 90 point ‘Free Hit’ and been completely and utterly OBLITERATED!!!!!!……More on that later…………

Let’s begin at the top of the league………….. ‘Crystal Pellis’ retain their lead but the gap has closed, with ‘Witty Name’ smashing in an impressive 108 points to mean they are now only 16 points behind……….meanwhile March winner ‘Dyche Daredevils’ donned their tracksuit and got a very tidy 126 points with late entrants Doucoure (8) and Walker (12) stepping up off the bench to leapfrog into 3rd place. 

Watch out too because the CHAMP….. IS…… BACK……..’Sonny & Schar’ ruthlessly deployed the ‘Free Hit’ scoring a whopping 128 points to move very, very ominously into 6th place…….cue Jaws music……..all hotting up nicely at the top of the league with a huge £200 prize at stake!! 

As for April……. a bit like Liverpool, it looks like for ‘Floppy Stars’ the dream might be over………’Gaz FC’ one time holder of the top gameweek score, is in pole position going into the final weekend of the month…..all to play for and maybe there are a few Triple Captain chips still knocking around there to snaffle the £50 prize………Cole Palmer anyone????

Back to the main story of the week……. cast your mind back to Blank GW29, when 65 of you plumped for your Free Hit to navigate through that particular barren landscape……..well the 12 teams that kept their powder dry until GW34 absolutely rubbed your noses in it ………… the roll of honour as follows (there are more, but these are the top scores)………‘Tamerz 89’ 125 points, ‘Sambuca Boys’ 130 points, ‘ArtetaBall’ 134 points , ‘Papichulos FC’ 135 points , Eze Come Eze Go’ 140 points, and  ‘Stone Cross FC’ 143 points………………Very well done all of you, your brave decision to hang onto that FH really paid off…….however……there was one team who went full chilli powder AND tabasco sauce……….step forward ‘Sprouts Mexicane’ ……….coming in with a snooker loopy 147 points…….. pretty impressive considering misfiring Mo Salah had the captaincy, and you still managed to leave another 36 points on the bench!! Well done ‘Sprouts’ you are in the lead for the £75 prize…….its almost yours unless there are any stragglers out there waiting to play the Free Hit chip in double gameweek 37???

It was also a big week for the ‘Bench Boost’ with 14 teams giving the reserves their day in the sun……. a wide range of results with ‘AlwaysbetonToney’ and ‘Lloris the Hounds’ getting 108 points and 92 points respectively with absolutely zero contribution from their four subs………while at the other end of the scale……..one of the finest ‘Bench Boost’ chips played EVER…….’KerrTFC’ storming in with 133 points, with an outrageous SIXTY TWO of them coming from the Bench Boost chip….Pickford (18), Mateta (29), Tarkowski (13), Ait Nouri (2)……..gotta be happy with that decision!!!

Onto GW35, we are getting close to the end of the season now, several prizes in the balance, 16 teams left in the TEDF cup, hang on in there, the summer break is coming!!

Your deadline today is 11:00, good luck everyone and all the best from all of us at the Evie Dove Foundation.
