The final week of this bizarre season is upon us! I would be lying if I said I enjoyed this, I was panicking the entire time these games went on, knowing that my entire year could be made or broken any minute. I managed to finish on 65 points, which won me an important minileague, but somehow still got me a red arrow down to rank 115k. This week was predictably godawful for defenders, which is something I’ve noticed over the last few years. Let’s take a look at my final gameweek review of this season, 11 months after I started doing this!
Nick Pope: 1 point
The dreams of golden gloves went up in smoke real quick! Poof!
Alex McCarthy: 2 points
Didn’t really expect too much from him this week, but I really didn’t expect him to outscore Pope.
Matt Doherty: 0 points
Very annoying. I really wanted to get rid of him for Laporte, but I was not expecting something quite as as bad as this. 2 goals conceded then taken off in the 59th minute, it’s just cruel.
Trent Alexander-Arnold: 1 point
He was benched, and I was tipped off about this from a leak, but I chose to keep him. I could have benched him too but as you can see that would not have made much of a difference at all.
Kevin Long: 1 point
A bleak game for Burnley, but annoyingly Pieters got another jammy assist! One of my worst choices of the season it seems.
Roman Saiss: 1 point
I didn’t fancy either of the Wolves defenders, but playing Saiss over the Doctor would have been madness, so I’m not too distraught by this result.
Kiko Femenia: 0 points
Speaking of terrible choices… He brought me absolutely nothing, I really wish I clocked Lamptey before making this choice.
Kevin de Bruyne: 19 points
Maestro. I am in awe of the best player in the league. After all the stick he got, even from me, he pulls it out of the bag with a final day masterclass to tie the all time assist record, and top the FPL scoring charts. 13 goals and 20 assists from a central midfielder is truly an obscene haul, and I think he enters the discussion with Lampard and Gerrard for all time top midfielders.
Michail Antonio: 0 points
Another final day disaster. He got a yellow and was hooked at halftime. Can’t really complain since I got that ridiculous penalty last week.
Anthony Martial: 6 points
Another week, another Tony return. This time, he drew a penalty. I love him, but I’m unsure if he will be worth the price as a forward next season.
Bruno Fernandes: 11 points
Bruno Penandes. Another terrible performance plastered over with a pen. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a player so inflated and overrated. This man is literally just a Portuguese Miliojevic, and I predict a plummet down to earth in the future for him.
Raheem Sterling (C): 8 points
I took a risk and trusted an early lineup leak, that revealed the clown lineup that Klopp put out, fully saving me from a 1 point return from Salah. These 8 points were critical in getting me my ML win and I thank Raheem for them, so glad he remembered how to play football, I think he will return to my side in GW1 of next year.
Gabriel Jesus: 8 points
I had the armband on him before I swapped in Sterling, and he did just as well. I think he could have had some more, but I’ll take a final 8 pointer when Jimenez blanks.
Mason Greenwood: 2 points
He was shattered, all of United were, and I can’t expect a return every week from the lad. Proud of you.
Eddie Nketiah: 1 points
Arsenal looked okay going forward, but once again Eddie didn’t offer too much. I’m tired of Arsenal limiting Aubameyang to facilitate inferior players, just set him free.
