OB Blog Player Picks Week 28



Every week is more important than the last. I gained a slight bit of ground on Nik The Dick and extended my lead ahead of the Bolog but Dodolog has outscored me for the 4th week in a row. I went for Walcott rather than Bale last week and that didn’t work out. I’ll probably have to choose between them again. The last 8 North London Derbies have had 39 goals. Averaging nearly 5 goals a match, a couple players from this game are needed. Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton, Sunderland and Southampton are the other teams that are worth looking at this week. I’m gonna mostly avoid United because the league is over, Madrid on the Tuesday and can’t be sure who’ll play.


Boruc – He’s dirt cheap and should outscore Lloris this week.

Howard – Cheap enough but I don’t trust Everton at the moment.

Begovic – West Ham don’t score many away but Stoke haven’t had a clean sheet at home in the last 7. Risky.

I’m definitely going with Boruc. No brainer innit.


Kelly – A season keeper.

Debuchy – Probably a season keeper.

Wilson – Back from injury last week and cheap with a decent match-up.

Pogetetz – If he’s going to start, he’s only a euro. He looks shite.

Smalling/Buttner – Very unlikely to play against Madrid to should start at the weekend.

Baines – Type of match were he could go massive. If you’re not going with Bale could be a good pick.


Holtby – Should be worth keeping this week unless there’s news he won’t start.

Bale – He’s dirt cheap and could be a good sneaky pick.

Walcott – Expensive but could go big.

Sessegnon – Had a big week last week. Unreliable but if you have him on pre-up, could be worth keeping.

Fellaini/Pienaar – Both good picks at decent value this week.

Lallana – Should get solid points as usual.

Lampard – Wouldn’t bet against a goal for him.

Coutinho – Could get a start and be a decent sneaky pick.


Sturridge – 2 goals this week.

Giroud – Due a goal.

Rooney – Should start to get him sharp for Madrid.

Aguero – He’s cheap now and against Villa.

Lambert – If you have him on pre-up, no brainer.

Hernandez – Should start.

Mirallas – Still cheap and against Reading.

Adebayor – He’s utter shite but can see him scoring this week.

Robbie Keane - If you play MLS, he'll score a hat-trick this week.

On my team page is this. Boruc, Kelly, Debuchy, Wilson, Cazorla, Holtby, Fellaini, Bale, Coutinho, Mirallas, Sturridge.
