Good morning folks.
I’ve recently started watching Season Three of the HBO show Insecure, and a noticeable theme I continue to find in that series is the divergence between characters’ aims and results. As a fantasy manager, you don’t need to watch the show to understand this; it happens to you in varying levels on a weekly basis. We desire certain players, invest in them, and wait to see what new ways the futbol gods can mess with us. And all the while we are indeed ‘insecure’.
Richarlison is the subject of the week seven episode of my FPL drama. I took a four point hit to bring him into my FPL team while also selling the ever popular Sadio Mane. Did I make the right choice? Should I have stayed with the Liverpool man? These are questions such as Issa ponders repeatedly. Should she have stayed with Lawrence, or run to the arms of Daniel? I’ll be at the edge of my seat this weekend to see how it all plays out. If you take nothing else from what I’ve just said, this my friends is how to let your wives and girlfriends understand why following the games are so important. The Premier League is one big soap opera that you can’t miss!
There are many subplots to look forward to this week, the first of which is the Jose Mourinho and Paul Pogba saga that’s seen the French world cup winner being stripped of his vice captaincy. On the other side of Manchester, trouble is reportedly brewing with another world cup winner as we hear of problems between Pep Guardiola and Benjamin Mendy.
Can Jurgen Klopp lead his team to victory over Chelsea and maintain a perfect record? Many Liverpool fans are angry he rested so many players in the Carabao Cup because it was a chance for him to finally bring silverware to Anfield. His team will have to face Eden Hazard from the start this time, and we saw what he did in a few minutes in midweek. It’s time to tune in to this week in the Premier League, enjoy friends.
