FPL Challenge Update: West Ham's Striker Hoodoo Ends And Screws Us Over

FPL Challenge Update: West Ham's Striker Hoodoo Ends And Screws Us Over
By Gary Connaughton

It could have been so much worse. After Riyad Mahrez brought in a huge amount of points in gameweek one, we were hoping none of our players would manage to hit those heights for the remainder of the season.

Little did we know, West Ham may have ended their seemingly 20-year long search for a decent striker.

For those of you who don't know, our goal is to get the lowest amount of points while still spending  all of our budget. There are some other rules that we have to stick to.

We ended up with a huge 20 points this week, most of which came from one man. Sébastien Haller would bring in 13 points, grabbing two goals as well as the three-point bonus against Watford. Disaster.

Here's what the rest of the team looked like.

We're happy enough with the rest of it, with only Richarlison bringing in more than a single point. Obviously, this was before Sanchez left for Inter Milan.

On a side note, we seem to have struck gold with Richarlison. It was a big risk bringing him into the team, but he has absolutely stunk the place up this season. Result.


Out of 5,441,466 players who were in it from gameweek one, we currently sit 5,410,849th (a drop of 300 places from last week), or in the bottom 0.5% of players.

Looking ahead to this weekend, we had a big decision to make. As our rules dictate, Alexis Sanchez must be transferred now that he has left the league.

Replacing him with an equally expensive, and also ineffective, player was no easy task. In the end, we decided to go with Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Here's the team we have selected:
