#FPL GAMEWEEK 37

FPL DEADLINE FOR GAMEWEEK 37 IS FRIDAY 12TH MAY AT 6:45PM

DEFENDER: MASON HOLGATE

I can safely say this season has been a disappointment for me. I’ve got more wrong than I’ve got right so as we approach the end of the season I did what anyone does when they struggle. I asked my Mum (Ed. YIRMA). Seriously. I thought I’d ask my Mum (Ed. YIRMA) who she would pick and then try to justify it in a football sense to see if actually just taking a punt is better than anything else.

If Defence, when presented with a long list, she picked Mason Holgate. She said it sounded like Colgate and that’s her favourite toothpaste. I informed her that Everton didn’t have a double gameweek and she said ‘Have you brushed your teeth?’. Truth be told for a defender the DGW is only appealing if you’re sure they will keep two clean sheets and actually home to Watford on Friday night could be a 0-0 if you ask me, or my Mum. (Ed. YIRMA)

MIDFIELDER: HEUNG-MIN SON, SPURS

For a midfielder she has opted for Son at Spurs because, of course, I am her son. It was a hard logic to argue with unless of course you worry he might not get a start. She did at least pick a DGW player and I was too impressed at her picking a very good player that I rate that I didn’t push her. Son is a tremendous player but the worry is of course that the wind is out of Spurs’ sails since they ‘bottled’ the league. (They didn’t bottle the league). Son is a one of the most hard working and professional players in the league and if anyone will try to the bitter end it is him.

FORWARD: JAMIE VARDY

Jamie Vardy is having a party. She particularly liked that when she heard it last year but she asked me why they still sing it when they haven’t won anything and he can’t till be partying or he would look silly. She’s not wrong but Leicester don’t seem to realise their season is over and they are absolutely loving it. They’re on fire and Vardy might be too stupid to stop trying. He’s been linked to a move to Spain in the Summer and a DGW against Man City and Spurs might not be as daunting as you would have thought a few months ago. I wouldn’t bet against him scoring.

CAPTAIN: HARRY KANE, SPURS

“Ooh Harry Kane. I know him”. In a way thats quite profound. Stick to what you know when it comes to captain. Double game week. Guaranteed 90 minutes. She’s got a point.

OUTSIDER: TOM CARROLL, SWANSEA

My mum (Ed. YIRMA) has a sister called Carol. If she had a sister called Deeney or Mikhatryan then this might have been different but her kin led her to Tom Carroll at Swansea. Sunderland away is now the most important game of their season and could see them safe. Tom Carroll is hardly a point scoring player but outsider is outsider for a reason. He’s actually a good guaranteed 90 minutes in your squad if you have a bench boost but not a wildcard. He got himself assists sporadically over the season, notably against Liverpool, but he is up against the worst team in the league. Mum’s (Ed. YIRMA’S) the word.
