Fantasy Premier League: Week 12 Recap

Arsenal (@Arsenal) have widened the gap again and are now four points clear at the top of the table.

This in large part due to the boneheaded error from Artur Boruc as seen above.

The Gunners had their chances early, with Wilshere (@JackWilshere) and Ramsey (@aaronramsey) each hitting a post, but the Boruc brainfart definitely swung the momentum in our favour.

Arsenal shifts over to Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) action today as they take on Marseille (@OM_Officiel).

COYG!

COYG!

The big story for the rest of the Premier League (@premierleague) gameweek had to do with some atrocious refereeing.

Yannick Bolasie of Crystal Palace (@Official_CPFC) and Wes Brown of Sunderland (@SAFCofficial) were both harshly shown red, though the latter just had his overturned by appeal.

But most stunning of all was Phil Dowd only issuing a yellow for this reckless challenge:

I think Suárez‘s (@luis16suarez) reputation for flopping preceded him here because that’s about as nasty as it gets.

The spikes even left two holes in right knee.

Just a dreadful call.

Later on, Luis sought out some revenge on Mirallas:

Tsk. Tsk.

Oh, and shout out to the Tottenham Hotspurs (@SpursOfficial), the supposedly superior North London squad, who were absolutely humbled by Man City (@MCFC).

Good thing you Lilywhites spent a fortune on all those players no one else wanted! Ya bums!!

Onto the fantasy!

I finally bit and used my wild card in the official game with mixed results.

It was definitely the wrong time to swap out Lukaku (@RomeluLukaku9) and I made a mistake in leaving Szczęsny (@13Szczesny13) on the bench.

But I can’t really complain as I finally had a better than average week.

In both games, I selected the wrong captains (again) but didn’t pay as dearly this time around.

Truth be told, it was a brutal feeling having to watch Agüero (@aguerosergiokun) tear it up after dropping him from my Yahoo! squad.

His addition to my teams would have taken me from a good week to a great week.

Won’t make that mistake again! His form is too hot to ignore.

Nevertheless, I made slight upward increments and I hope that trend continues into the next set of fixtures.

How did you make out in Gameweek 12???
