As predicted, moving away from my original plan and opting for some more differential options has been my downfall over the last couple of weeks. I was forced into making these moves as I was aiming for first place in my mini league. I simply couldn’t have the same players as my first placed opponent. Lacazette being benched was a disaster and so was Aubameyang getting 5 goals in his last two games. Under normal circumstances I would have also stuck with Van Dijk rather than creating a semi block of Man City defenders. I was however fairly realistic in my expectations when making these calculated risks and had a feeling that it wouldn’t succeed. The disappointing thing is that it will affect my overall finish on the leaderboard but attempting to win the mini league was more important to me. On a positive note, I would say I’m already looking forward to next season. Given the community that’s been built on the blog during this season I feel more confident than ever that going into next season we will have all shared our thoughts on how to approach the game and it should make for a successful campaign.
Clean sheets for Robertson and Azpilicueta.
Mane scored twice and picked up 18 points.
Aguero got a goal.
I’ve got no real issues at this stage as I’ve got no transfers remaining. I’m glad I’ve got good City coverage going into the FA Cup final and then a mixture of players who will be competing for European silverware.
Tips for Game Week 37
The only fixture this week is the FA Cup final. Although City are strong favourites, if you’ve got transfers left I’d be very tempted to use them carefully. We’ve got three game weeks remaining but only one fixture per week. As a result you can start to transfer players out as their season comes to an end. This could make for a strong finish to the season.
