So, Harry Kane scored a couple at Wembley in a league match at last – time to make him captain, then.  And that Lukaku, eh? What do you mean, Jose’ll park the bus?

5 players gone this week, 3 of them chose Kane as Captain, while the other 2 had Lukaku.  Neither scored, so both earned just 4 points.  And with the gap to safety anything between 5 and a single point, that becomes very important – particularly if the rest of your team are auditioning for West Ham.  Only one player goes because of transfer costs – I don’t check whether the transfers were themselves worth it, because while schadenfreude may well be enjoyable, there’s a point when it becomes unnecessarily unpleasant.

We do have 1 player who could’ve survived despite having made Kane captain, if he’d only picked the right goalkeeper – normally you’d take the keeper at home to Burnley, but when your other option is at home to Man Utd, hmm.
Still, it’s all good fun, which is easy for me say as I’m no longer involved, I didn’t go to Goodison and I haven’t watched MOTD2, yet.
And my home town team got thumped 6-0 at home in the FA Cup.  What a weekend.
