Duke’s EPL DFS Preview for Two-Game Wednesday slate…
Considering we have one of these every day, I don’t have a ton to add in the intro, so I’ll tell you a story. This is a true story…we’ve been down at the beach at my parent’s place. They rent it out, and because they live in GA, they have a cleaning service come through and get it ready for the next tenants when one leaves. Lately, they’ve had a male in the unit (they see him on the ring doorbell) doing the cleaning. This is odd because it’s typically all females in the business down here and also because they typically try to get it done asap. This guy spent 3.5 hours in their unit the other day. Very curious. Very curious, indeed.
He’s a young guy who, per other owners in the building, has rotten teeth and looks high all the time. THE DUDE DIED. Literally, on Saturday, he entered a unit to clean it and never came out. When we arrived, there were cops and firetrucks in front of the building. Turns out, it was for him. He was 30 and likely died of a drug overdose. Obviously, I never knew him, but it’s still sad to see someone so young go so early. Don’t do drugs, kids!
Anyways…let’s talk soccer. The Super League is done!! Who could have seen this coming?? I can’t wait for the Thursday podcast with Seige, but I’ll add slight commentary to the breakdowns below.
To the desert…
EPL DFS GAME THOUGHTS
One of the nasty Big 6 heading to the Super League. Maybe the most curious inclusion. They’ve also just fired their manager…one Jose Mourinho. I don’t want to say I called it but as soon as he was hired I put out this podcast and tweet.
In steps young Ryan Mason. He’s just 29 and a former Spurs player who unfortunately had to retire due to chronic injuries. We have no idea what his playing style will be. We have no idea who he’ll start. We have no idea where these player’s heads are with the news of the Super League and potentially not even caring if they win or lose. If anything, I see more motivation from Southampton to stick it to one of the big boys. All I can say is thank goodness there aren’t any fans in the stands. It would have gotten pretty ugly.
Rinse and repeat from above in terms of the Super League but City seem to be scooting by the harshest of criticism. Is it because they have no history? Is it because they were bought by oil money? Or is it because they are so damn good that this just confirms the inevitable anyway? Maybe to all 3. City will be champions again regardless of how this match finishes. Assuming they are allowed to stay in the Prem…
Villa sit 11th in the table and are still without their club captain, Jack Grealish who suffered another setback. Morgan Samson will also miss. As far as the regulars, that is the extent of their injury list. What remains is a competitive team against most teams in the division but not Man City.
This is an evolving matter. As stated above, I assume the players will pull on their shirts, tie up their boots and give a good effort but nothing is guaranteed. Whereas I’m fine grabbing more Southampton than Tottenham, that is not my preference here.
This should be a relatively straightforward win for the Citizens.
