Gameweek #3: Crazy, crazy week
What a crazy week of action it has been! (both on and off the pitch...)
I don't claim to be an unbiased sports new source, so if you're looking for an exhaustive list, or even a normal list, of what teams bought which player in the nick of transfer window time, you won't find it here. Some of us ended this summer transfer window without a striker and are still a little sore about it. So if your team got the player you wanted (i.e., Cristiano Ronaldo to ManUnited) or your team got to keep the player you didn't want them to sell (i.e., Harry Kane for Tottenham), good for you. I guess we'll settle this on the football field.
Can I just say, I'm not particularly looking forward to facing Manchester United or Chelsea (or FREAKING PSG!!) over the next few weeks? Thank God De Bruyne and Foden will be back after the international break.
In some other off-the-football-field news, this Benjamin Mendy business is nasty, isn't it? One way or another, I pray the truth comes out and quickly too, for everyone's sake. I'm not giving a verdict since I know next to nothing about the particulars of the case, but honestly, sexual assault should not still be happening in 2021. Perhaps, we - as a society - need to start considering castration as a fitting punishment.
Rounding up my gameweek round-up with the Chelsea-Liverpool match, talk about a heated battle! Do I think Reese James deserved the red card? Heck yes. He was playing with that ball like he was a juggler. Of course, Anthony Taylor was going to give a red card. Disclaimer: it will be a below-freezing day in Miami before I root for Chelsea in any fixture, so it is possible I only saw what I wanted to see.
Either way, big thanks to Liverpool for taking those two points away from the Blues. Love to see it. Muhaha.
Deep breath y'all,
I'm so thankful for this international break because I might need to reset my FPL brain. Oh, I very much hate losing, but it's like as soon as a player gets on my team, they don't know how to win FPL points again. So frustrating!
I wish I could just put all City players on my FPL team and call it a day. All this stress of trying to guess the future is making my hair fall out (this is most likely because I'm procrastinating washing it, but I'd rather keep lying to myself).
