Well, well, well... another mixed GW for me. All of my defenders let me down by conceding goals. Fortunately Ashley Cole and Ryan Taylor (autosub) saved face to a small extent, by managing a couple of assists between them. My goalkeeper Hart conceded his fourth goal in eight premier league outings, during City's 4-1 thrashing of Aston Villa. Midfielders Petrov and Cabaye failed to get a goal or an assist. On a brighter note, my recommended player for gameweek 8 managed an assist. Sinclair is truly on form by bagging 29 points in the last 4 games, which equates to a respectable 7.25 points per game.
I got my captain's pick correct with Van Persie as he bagged two goals from upfront. However, I only got 1 point from my other two strikers - Dzeko who got no game time and Rooney who came off the bench and didn't do much. To top things off I selected Huth, who turned out to be an unused sub, as Stoke obtained a clean sheet - yet my other autosub (Cahill) failed to protect a clean sheet. As a result of this GW I have finally transferred Huth in place of Liverpool's Jose Enrique. I will also get rid off Cahill if he fails to perform in the next GW. I am also inclined to ditch Dzeko as he has not regularly played 90 minutes in the Premier League this season for City despite his proven form. Finally, I am now keeping track of John Terry who scored his second league goal this season and Norwich's Anthony Pilkington (5.0) who has scored three in his last four league games.
