Transfers: Shaw out, Wan-Bissaka in
Overall it was a disappointing game week for me and probably ends my hopes of achieving a top 1,000 finish. The FA Cup semi finals both went the wrong way in terms of the teams who progressed to the final and I wasted a transfer bringing in Wan-Bissaka for the injured Luke Shaw. The thinking behind it was that Wan-Bissaka might get two games and I didn’t want to be carrying an injured player at this stage of the game. Ironically, I’d have been better off keeping Shaw despite him not playing. This now leaves the remaining Premier League fixtures and the FA Cup final. I’ve got one transfer left and no players from Arsenal or Chelsea – which isn’t a great position to be in. The point it does reinforce is that rushing transfers doesn’t often pan out well – I even regret bringing in Shaw in the first place as TAA scored well midweek so I could have saved myself two transfers rather than trying to force points on the board.
Another clean sheet for Patricio. He’s now the 4th highest scoring goalkeeper and was a bargain price at the start of the season.
Goal and clean sheet for Laporte – a great result for a player who is a slight differential.
Double figure points for De Bruyne and Sterling.
I only have one transfer left so there’s not a lot I can do to resolve any issues at this stage of the season. I’m fairly happy with my team going into the final Premier League fixtures.
Tips for Game Week 46
Looking ahead to game week 46, I’m reasonably happy with my team at the moment. However, I’ve got one transfer left to use. I’m tempted to take out Rashford, and replace him with Aubameyang. Man Utd have a more difficult fixture (although there is a lot to play for) and Arsenal face Watford – who did need a result but seemed to go on a downward spiral against Man City after sacking their manager. I think it’s worth taking a punt on Aubameyang, in case Watford collapse further and Aubameyang then has the FA Cup final fixture.
