Gameweek 16 Review: The Boring Yawnfest

I hold my hands up as your blogging FPL advisor. Gameweek 16 was the opposite to what I thought it would be. At the same time though, it didn't make me think anything different to what I've been talking about throughout this 2016/17 series.

Bournemouth and Leicester are unpredictable clubs with unpredictable players and unpredictable managers.

Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs are good, but too inconsistent to challenge for the title.

Sanchez scores when he wants.

Ibrahimovic scores when we wants.

Southampton and Stoke are just as good/bad/average as one another.

Chelsea keep winning under Conte's new system.

Calling how many goals and clean sheets there will be in a gameweek is nion impossible as ever.

The Premier League can be really straightforward or shockingly surprising from week to week.

But there is one thing that's kind of new...

West Brom are really good now

As a proud admirer of Tony Pulis (now he doesn't manage my football team anymore), it gives me immense pleasure in saying how flipping fantastic Tony Pulis is at managing small football clubs.

They are not just surviving either- they are the second best form team in the entire league! West Brom have scored 13 goals in 6 games in the Premier League. It's unheard of! They've won 4 out of 6 and lost just once in their last 6 games! And even that was against the team way out in first place in the form table! And they could've drawn the game on another day! Just 1-0 against in-form Chelsea away from the Hawthorns! Get West Brom players in your teams!

Thanks for reading.
