And I thought week 32’s scores had been low – yikes, this was horrible.
With 5 weeks left in the season, we’re down to ours last 4 players, as 2 more are dropped this week – one of them having taken an 8 point hit for transfers. In these situations, it really becomes a tale of what if, or to be more accurate a tale of “Oh, for goodness’ sake”, once it sinks in that a single point is all it would’ve taken.
My excuse is that we got back from a short break in the early hours of Saturday morning and it wasn’t until I was on the train to Watford that I had that “No, I didn’t do my team!” moment. 18 points. I’m only here to make the rest look good, I admit it. And, boy did they need my help this week.
Here’s the sorry story:
Average Score: 31.33 (6 participants) – overall competition average 32
Highest Score: 38 (unsurprisingly, a new low) – overall competition high score 102
Overall Competitors: 5,874,177 (an increase of 11,311 – it’s not too late, guys, really it isn’t.)
Eliminated This Week:
With 24 points : Fairfielders (Avi Govind)
Gameweek Rank: 4,524,653
Captain – Kane (Spurs) : 1=2 – successful alternatives: 7 (really)
8 others scored 13 between them
As with last week, hindsight is wonderful, but when you only need 1 extra point. Playing King or Naughton (Swansea) : 2 instead of any of Lowton (Burnley), Morgan (Leicester) or our very own Kiko Femenia : 1 would’ve been enough.
With 24 points : Unknown XI (Pete Whiteley)
Gameweek Rank: 3,031,206 (based on gross score of 32)
Captain – Aubameyang (Arsenal) : 6=12 – successful alternatives: 1 (Zaha : 7)
8 others scored 10 between them
Transfer cost 8
Nothing would’ve helped.
Surviving this week:
gloryhornetboys (Mike James) : 31
Maverick Hornets (Andrew Templeman) : 35
GloryHornetBoys (Glyn Francies) : 36 (gross 40)
With 38 points : Holgate Hornets (Matthew Smith)
Gameweek Rank: 1,655,736
Aubameyang (Arsenal) : C 6=12
And so we are down to the last 4 going into Week 34. An early finish, then.
