Sick Chirpse Fantasy Football League – Week 11 Roundup

Man Utd and Man City prove they are the comeback kings. QPR lose again. Arteta admits defeat in terms of trophy winning potential. Berba repping again. Weekend round up of the Prem.

Dust has settled on another week of fantasy football and it seems as if there are no changes right at the top of the league with Tom Shipley’s Apocalypse Dudes still leading the way despite Tom Sands’ Prison Break FC being hot on his heels. The big scorer of the week was Nicky Greenhow and his Boomerwanger with a cheeky little 51 points taking him up to 15th place. The top and bottom five in the league remain unchanged and Matthew Hurley 12Fort still look on course for the big wooden spoon at the end of the season.

Here’s how the Prem sized up this weekend:

Aston VS Man Utd 2-3
Arsenal VS Fulham 3-3
Everton VS Sunderland 2-1
Reading VS Norwich 0-0
Saints VS Swansea 1-1
Stoke VS QPR 1-0
Wigan VS West Brom 1-2
Chelsea VS Liverpool 1-1
Newcastle VS Hammers 0-1
Man City VS Spurs 2-1

BIG HITTERS:

You’d be forgiven for forgetting that these two titans of the Premiership were once teammates, and in fact the form last season of The Little Pea was arguably the reasoning behind Berbatov’s trip down to Craven Cottage. It isn’t all smiles and fun for the man looking to emulate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer though as Javier Hernandez has spent a lot of the season getting splinters on the United bench much as his counterpart Berbatov did the season before. However, it seems as if the heroic exploits of Hernandez will inevitably be rewarded as he has pretty much single handedly beaten Chelsea (with a little help from Mark Clattenburg) and Aston Villa in the space of two weeks. With United trailing 2-0 at Villa Park in the 46th minute despite having 72% possession Hernandez was introduced as a sub and ended up steering the Red Devils to another comeback to be salavated at. Unlucky to be denied a Hat-Trick and having his tally dropped to 2 goals and an assist the striker notched up a sweet 14 points to give all the fantasy football managers out there something to ponder before Utd make the trip to Norwich for Saturday’s late kick off.

The other big boy of the week is still trying to convince Fergie that he should’ve never been demoted to the bench and forced to leave the club as he managed to bag himself two goals and an assist against an otherwise unimpressive Arsenal team.  Berbatov has now managed to be directly involved in 8 out of the last 9 goals Fulham have scored banging in 5 goals and 3 assists over the past few weeks. At a mesely 5.2 million and with Sunderland at home as their next game you’d be stupid not to back the balding Bulgarian.

BIG SHITTER:

With the captain’s armband cutting off circulation to your arm, your club on the verge of their first victory in 90 minutes since they scraped past QPR at the end of October and your penalty record being pretty much untarnished you gotta hit the target right? Not when you play for Arsenal you don’t.  Any slim title hopes and aspirations that the Gunners might hold have all but gone up in smoke around the 94th minute of their 3-3 draw with Fulham and The Emirates Ghost Town Stadium.  He may have bagged himself an assist, had an ok game and in all fairness the save from Schwarzer was fantastic but Arteta looked like a shell of a man after handing over his team’s chances of a good season. With a game at home to Spurs at midday on Saturday I can’t help but think Arteta is gonna play like a man who has been swallowed up by the Earth. It might be worth getting him out of your team before he goes on meltdown. Here’s that glorious Gunner moment again for all to see:

Of course there are midweek internationals so make note of the players t hat get injured before you make any transfers…here’s what Prem games there are to look forward to this weekend:

Sat 17 Nov 2012 – Premier League

  • Arsenal v Tottenham 12:45
  • Liverpool v Wigan 15:00
  • Man City v Aston Villa 15:00
  • Newcastle v Swansea 15:00
  • QPR v Southampton 15:00
  • Reading v Everton 15:00
  • West Brom v Chelsea 15:00
  • Norwich v Man Utd 17:30

Sun 18 Nov 2012 – Premier League

  • Fulham v Sunderland 16:00

Mon 19 Nov 2012 – Premier League

  • West Ham v Stoke 20:00

Predictions this week are that Arsenal play out a scrappy draw with AVB’s Spurs in the North London derby. Liverpool finally win at home against an otherwise average Wigan team. Man City carve a hole through Aston Villa and fill it with at least 4 goals. The Toon brave the oncoming Welsh front and scrape out a win at home to Swansea despite Michu grabbing a goal. Battle of the worst managers in the Prem sees QPR beat the Saints 2-1 further denting poor old Nigel Adkins chances of keeping the job. Everton beat Reading. Chelsea beat West Brom. Utd smash Norwich. Berbatov beats Sunderland, just. West Ham grind out a draw against the Anti-Football alliance on a horrible Monday night in East London.

Here’s how the league looks:
