So while yours truly flounders in this season’s FPL, men are winning FPL Vibes monthly prizes with aplomb. The monthly prize winner for November is none other than Joel Rochard aka Jo Ro with his Real Skinner Park side amassing 288 points. Congrats to Jo Ro and he has selected a Chelsea Hazard #17 away kit (white) as his jersey of choice.
It is interesting to note that he is also in 2nd place overall in the Prize League. The current leader is D Pipers who was also the September monthly prize winner and in third place is JDB with his Tu Mama squad. These guys have maintained an admirable level of consistency, but without further ado let us get cracking with analyzing the Real Skinner Park November FPL run.
In a packed month with 5 gameweeks Jo Ro delivered in GW 10 with 51 points. the high point men were Suarez (9), Fellaini (15) and Foster (8). For Gameweek 11 his transfers were Kacaniklic and Jenkinson out for Gorkks and Maloney. Another 51 point haul in this GW 11 consisted of Fellaini (13), Shawcross (9) and Ruddy (6). Jo Ro then transferred in Berbatov for Crouch and garnered 70 points. Major points men were captain Suarez with 22 points, Ruddy (10), Bale and Hazard both with (7) and Michu with (9). For GW 13 Jo Ro banked his transfer leaving him with two available transfers for GW 14. Real Skinner Park totalled 44 points in GW 13 with notable point earners being captain Bale with 18 and Ivanovic with 6 points. Jo Ro then used his two free transfers and sold Bosingwa and Foster to bring in Mignolet and Lowton. The end result was an impressive 72 point haul with the star men being captain Bale with 20, Michu with 8, Fellaini with 10 and Mignolet with 8.
So in a tough November where big scores were not easy to come by, Jo Ro managed to be consistent and collect above 50 point scores when par for the course may have been 40. This coupled with good captaincy choices was the difference between Real Skinner Park and other sides in November. Congrats again to Jo Ro and as for yours truly and the wrecked side BESBRAHN FC, like Arnold Schwarzenegger said “I’ll be back!”.
