On the surface game week 32 looks like a fairly decent week with over 100 points scored. However this didn’t result in much of an improvement on the overall leaderboard. I’ve also lost my lead in a mini league I’ve been winning for most of the season. Really frustrating as I was firmly on course to win this at one point. I’d mainly put this down to two decision, at the time both could have gone either way. Going for Stones over B. Silva cost me 20-30 points. Missing the price changes last week and going for Walker over De Bruyne has cost me 25 points alone this week. Awful result really as I try to follow the principle of being able to win mini leagues if you simply stay organised and make transfers at the right time when others won’t and this is exactly what’s caught me out. It seems like two minor mistakes after a really good run have pretty much written off my season. Unfortunately the leader also went for Firmino so our teams are now pretty much the same – other than I have Rudiger (who is now injured) and he has De Bruyne. I’ve basically got no chance with no transfers in the bank for April – I’ve have to make some very bold moves in May to give myself a chance of catching him by going for players he is unlikely to go for. I can’t see this tactic being overly successful as it will likely be players who haven’t scored overly well this season and I will have to rely on a bit of luck in the final few games. Ironically he also didn’t have Kane before he got injured. I was hoping that being able to accommodate Kane was going to see him off for the rest of the season.
A clean sheet and a goal for Van Dijk resulted in 18 points.
26 points for Sterling and 22 points for Mane.
Goals for Salah, Firmino and Aguero.
Rudiger is injured but I can’t do anything about this at the moment with no transfers.
The biggest issue is pretty much having the same team as my main rival. As a result I’ll have to make some very radical changes in May straight off the bat to try and catch him. I wouldn’t recommend that anyone follows these moves if you’re already winning your mini league as they are likely to be differentials. This isn’t a route I’d normally take as I prefer to go for proven point scorers.
Tips for Game Week 33
I’d imagine most people have no transfers remaining. However if you do, it’s worth looking at Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal players as they all have a double game week. Spurs in particular look like a team worth considering with the additional Champions League fixtures now coming up. I personally won’t be going for any further Man City representation now that they are out of this competition. Despite only have one game this week, Liverpool travel to Cardiff which could be a good game to target. It could also be worth looking at Chelsea and Arsenal long term as they have both progressed in the Europa League.
