Musings from Gameweek 38
Tottenham failed to qualify for the Champions League despite Bale’s rasper in in 89th minute as Arsenal secured their spot with a tense 0 – 1 win over Newcastle with a goal from Laurent Koscielny.
If Bale stays in the Premier League he is going to be very expensive in the Fantasy game next season. To start the season with Van Persie and Bale will cost upwards of 25 Fantasy pounds which will seriously put a restriction the other 13 players in the squad.
I hope you had Bale for the latter part of the season as he was the must-have player.
Ferguson’s last game in charge was amazing. Although he would have wanted to sign out with a win, at least the game was entertaining as Manchester United and West Brom scored five goals each, with Lukaku’s hattrick standing out.
The on-loan teenager has scored 17 goals this season and will be an exciting Fantasy prospect should he either secure a loan or be sure of a starting place at Chelsea next season.
Van Persie, the most captained player this Gameweek, registered his 26th goal and continued to please his owners.
Nolan scored the Gameweek’s other hattrick in West Ham’s 4 – 2 win over Reading.
Carroll, who provided two assists, has had a great ending to the season and it will be interesting to see how he will be priced next season. Should he stay at West Ham and be priced at 7.5 or lower he will be an interesting prospect in the mid-priced forward category.
Carragher’s final game
Carragher will be pleased to finish his Liverpool game with a clean sheet as he was substituted to a standing ovation in Liverpool’s 1 – 0 win against QPR.
Coutinho supplied the goal to cap of his great introduction at Liverpool and will be another interesting piece of the Fantasy puzzle next season.
I’m documenting whether I’m passing the test with my captain picks. If a captain pick scores over three points in the Gameweek it is considered a success and I am also noting double-digit Gameweek scores.
In the Friday Foreplay for Gameweek 38 I recommended Bale, Walcott, and Sturridge as captain picks. Walcott and Sturridge had quiet weeks but Bale saved my behind with a goal in the final moments of the Tottenham match.
Quality of captain picks:
- Good captain picks: 68/114
- Double digit captains: 32/114
