If you guessed from the title this week, this week is anyone’s guess. Unfortunately, the locking system for starting XI isn’t evolved enough to give us enough time to adjust our rosters accordingly. But with only a handful of teams with something to play for, hitting the right guy via the transfer wire is like throwing darts from 100 yards away. With Liverpool and City still battling for Champions league spots, and Arsenal hoping for the best in those outcomes… those games would be the high point of my interest as far as transfers go. If you are close in your mini-league to moving up a few spots, don’t be afraid to take a gamble, you have to think obtusely in order to make up points this week. You know why? Because there is no tomorrow. I mean, there is a tomorrow, but it doesn’t matter. So go to the store buy a new set of balls, and get weird. Here are some ideas for the week to get you through your transfer conundrum. It has been a hell of a year, one last Cheers for ya!
Joel Matip, Liverpool – The motivations to add him are there. Pool hold their own destiny, they have four out of five cleans and he is the least owned Liverpool defender. I am not into using or trusting a Pudlian this late in the season for defense, but it totally makes sense.
John Terry, Chelsea – It is his last game at the Bridge. He starts, period. Gets subbed off after 60 minutes and hands the captain’s arm band to Cahill. It’s like a fairy tale, with weird personal story lines tied in.
Wilfried Zaha, Crystal Palace – Two words. Revenge game. I know it was a short lived time at United, but so what? I don’t care.
Junior Stanislas, Bournemouth – You should be owning King, but I personally think the Bournemouth? Leicester game could be a great watch for soccer and fantasy fans. Game should be up and down at a furious pace with lots of goals.
Olivier Giroud, Arsenal – He shined last year in the last three games of the year. Doing it again. Arsenal are scraping for a Champions league spot, look for them to lay some thump.
Fernando Llorente, Swansea – Goals in three of his past four and has the most headed goals in this calendar year. The baggies look like ziplock’s in the air and he score. Book it French style, like green beans.
