Before I waffle on about how lucky I got with damage limitation last week and this GW's team I must say...
TRUNCATED GW29 ALERT!
Due to FA Cup fixtures, the likes of Everton, City, United and Chelsea will not play Premier League football. 8 teams will be affected in total. Some of them could play in a super-extended GW29, but that is unlikely.
As for GW 27, it was disappointing. My Tri-Reading connection failed with Pog getting sent off. Lamps missed a penalty which further diminished my score. Buy my recommended player/one-time bogey player didn't let me down - Bale's brace and Joey O'Brien's assist bailed me out on Monday night and doubled my score from a paltry 19 to 38! #damagelimitation
For this GW, I almost thought of selling RVP, due to his injury and no-show for GW29. In addition, with United's involvement in the FA Cup and Champions League, his PL impact will be limited.
I decided to sell Walcott as I felt that he is being drowned out by the likes of Cazorla, Wilshere, Podolski and even Giroud. Walcott may have shown form in December and January, but I feel the time is right to sell him.
I decided to draft in Sissoko this GW with GW 29 also in mind. His stunning form since joining Newcastle can't be ignored. At sub-7.0 he is a steal.
I couldn't stand relying on one striker, even for one GW. That's why I decided to cut my losses with Pog and bring in Lambert. 12 PL goals, with 2 goals and 3 assists shows his calibre.
I believe Lambert will be the reason why Southampton will avoid relegation. Their match v QPR is like a Cup Final and I think he will once again shine. Southampton are also due to play in GW29.
