Well, not giving up in the sense I am walking away from my team and calling it a day. Giving up in the sense that I will not be winning the title and I really don’t fancy our version of the Europa League either.
It’s been another tough FFL week for me, mainly because I forgot about it (again). But, we did go up the league rather than down it this week!
Ben Foster, 2 points
Benny boy is still in goal for me and I still need to change this fact. Never, ever have a Pardew keeper in your team. I mean, they lost to Swansea for crying out loud!
Ben Davies, 5 points
An assist from the other Benny boy which makes up for the fact they let Ryan Shawcross score from a corner.
Cesar Azpilicueta, 2 points
For crying out loud Chelsea, what the hell was that? Losing to West Ham?
Stephen Ward, 8 points
Forget what I said last week, this boy is a fine signing. A clean sheet against Watford, bonus points and played the full 90. More of that please!
N’Golo Kante, 3 points
I really should make a transfer here. Mind you, he got a bonus point though I am not really sure how.
Richarlison, 2 points
Sean Dyche worked out how to stop him and the only saving grace was he didn’t get booked this week!
David Silva, 8 points
A goal in the Derby, bonus points and picked a fight with Nemanja Matic. Did anyone see Kevin de Bruyne? No, me neither. It’s all about the Bald Toro.
Dele Alli, 6 points
Dele Alli is slowly waking up by the looks of it! An assist, a clean sheet and he played an hour. Lovely.
Harry Kane, 12 points
Why oh why oh why did I not remember to make Kane captain again? That would have been the difference between an OK week and a great week. Balls.
Sergio Aguero, 0 points
Great. City’s record goalscorer was left on the bench for the top-of-the-table clash. And City won, which makes it worse as Pep got it right. He was my captain and all.
Tammy Abraham, 4 points
Yes, I know I keep meaning to sell Tammy. Got me 4 points though with an assist in his 14 minutes on the pitch.
Total: 52 points
I’ve had worse weeks and we move up the table once more to 29th (don’t get too excited). The team needs changing but I said that last week. There are midweek matches as we know, so if I am going to make them I’d better remember tonight, eh?
