The Big Numbers – Gameweek 2

Filed under: Members - Posted by: In Tommy We Trust

As another Gameweek edges towards its conclusion, we handpick the standout statistics over Saturday and Sunday’s nine Premier League fixtures. Andre Villas-Boas’ shift to 4-3-3 brings a Tottenham new boy onto our radar, a certain Saints frontman catches our attention, City’s midfield schemer offers goal promise, while a trio of Everton’s assets also make the cut:

  1. I am really surprised at the reaction of people over Mata not starting. He hardly had any pre-season, looked way off the pace against Villa, how could he start such a big game? Anyone remember how he started last season? That was after first International break he started to score.

  2. Smart move by Jose. Pack midfield. A draw is a good result.

    1. We will see shortly.

    2. looks like he's using this an attacking ploy, mobility causes disorganisation.

      If he was after 0-0 i think the mighty Jon Obi would get a start.

  3. Just under 2 hours to enter Last Man Standing.

    63 or more in GW1 qualifies. Code is 58-324

    940 qualified so far. Lowest 40 odd gameweek scores after hits get knocked out.

    Aiming for 1000 entries.

    1. Joined earlier,cheers

    2. You better be right. I am taking another hit! ;-)

    3. Best league around

  4. Michael Owen says Hazard is up front on ESPN Star Sports India.

    1. Hazard not up front then ;)

      1. Definitely rule that out then.

      2. Their analysis makes me believe so. ;)

    2. Owen played for Stoke

    3. He was commentating for NBC on the weekend, Owen gets around.

    4. Mourinho hasn't said who it is yet as far as i can see...I hope it's Hazard...

  5. I left Hazard leaving my emotions aside & following the rule "FPL is business"

    Really scared that he'll do some business too now :-(

  6. Dear Mr. Hazard:

    Please score.



    1. -1

      1. So all your team played already. I see

  7. Ben Affleck lone forward?? I hope not...

  8. New Article Posted
  9. I will be bold and say 0-2 to Chelsea. Goals From Ivanovic and Schurrle.

  10. It would be so much more simple if they called this the Wayne Cup - winner takes all (and 200,000 a week wages)

  11. .

    Chelsea to expose Cleverly as the poor midfielder he is tonight.

  12. Score prediction after seeing line ups:

    2-1 United!

  13. If Romelu doesn't come on I've fielded 10 players this GW. Shocking.

  14. 0-0 at 10/1. Worth a punt.

    1. marvelous work

  15. New Post
  16. Rio... come on man...

  17. How is Mata not on the pitch. Wrong

  18. for Wk 3 - Best defender to Sub for Ivanovic ... under 5.0 (i already have Whittaker)

    Lovren (5.0), Collins (4.5), Shaw (4.7), Chambers (4.0), Fonte (4.5) ??

    Pick one, thanks!!

    1. Shaw

  19. I can see why Lukaku is benched, Chelsea have such a vivacious cutting edge without him. Oh wait... Mourinho is losing it.

    1. *vicious :D

    2. Hands down he' s the best striker they have

  20. I have no clue who to transfer lukaku out for... i can sell for 7.8 and I have .5 in the bank. Thoughts?

    1. my other 2 are Soldado and Dzeko btw

    2. Rickie Lambert would be my pick!

  21. Should i get RVP in guys?

    1. Gameweek 6 is when I plan on getting him! :)

  22. Is Luke Shaw injured? Anyone know status?

  23. Hey people. Anyone know whats doing on with Briggs (FULHAM)? He started GW1, but not GW2. Is he just not a starter or something more?

“A hit a week every week and finish in the top 50k is just fine and dandy for me. I play the game for the fun and how it improves watching Stoke vs Cardiff on a Monday night in November.”
