Gameweek 22 – Super Sunday

In 2011/12 on January 21, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Arsenal vs. Manchester United.  Manchester City vs. Spurs.  Super Sunday.  Ouch.  In Gameweek 22;  7 of the 11 players in the team season so far will be on show against each other.  A tough call for fantasy premier league managers.  Do you go with the big boys or call in the differentiators?

Fantasy Premier League - Team of the Season

Fantasy Premier League - Team of the Season

Gameweek 22 Shortlist

James McLean
Who?   The Sunderland winger has risen to fame since Martin O’Neill took over at the Wearside club.  His bonus points / starts ratio is immense with 6 bonus points in only 3 starts, plus 1 goal.  He is direct, confident and most importantly for fantasy premier league he is cheap at £4.5 million.  Get him in now there is only one way his price is going.

Joey Barton
The QPR midfielder does wind me up but I must say I agree with Joey Barton’s comments about Neil Warnock.  In his last days the  QPR boss (with no eyebrows) seemed to blame anyone but himself for his demise.  Barton has just served a 3 game ban and at home to Wigan I can see him coming in and getting some points.  This season his stats have been solid if not spectacular with; 2 goals, 4 assists and 6 bonus points and I expect them to improve in Gameweek 22.

Ryan Shotton
He’s a gamble.  Ryan Shotton; a) doesn’t start every week and b) is having a fitness test ahead of Stoke’s match vs. West Brom.  If fit I think he’ll play and at £4.1 million he is an absolute steal.  Not only is he down as a defender (despite playing in midfield) he is also Stoke’s reserve long thrower (when Delap is injured).  Shotton has 1 goal and 4 bonus points to date and at home to West Brom if he passes his fitness test I expect more points.

Whoever you pick good luck and enjoy Super Sunday.
