Goose egg?

Dean Ashton (WHU - F)

Yahoo!'s matchcast had Ashton with a shot on and one blocked for a corner. That's 6pts in my book. If I had Ashton, I'd be pissed. Not as pissed as if I had McFadden and was screwed out of 2 assists. And certainly not "where's Forrsell's goal from 2002" pissed. But pissed.

What's the deal with Ashton and WHU? Distracted by the Cup run? Believing the hype? And now they face Chelsea. Time to look for other cheap strikers... John @Sun anyone?


  1. YOU said you'd never mention forsell's name again. Why don't you give me a paper cut and pour lemon juice in it, why don't you.

    It was a weak header that the Charlton keeper caught easily. It looked like it was on target. Didn't warrant a replay however so I can't say for sure.

    Ashton was quiet by his standards but worked hard defensively. We were pretty dire last night. Hopefully the semi will be better if Charlton beat Boro.

    BTW, Anton was getting forward a lot at right back. I guess this might be his new position with Scaloni unable to put a foot right recently.

  3. Ferdinand at right back is very interesting from a fantasy perspective. Shame that WHU are @CHE next week though. Not a time to pick up Hammers.

    the problem isn't the fact that the SOT was contentious, the fact is, Yahoo has Ashton down as having down nothing at all throughout the duration of the match. No PIs, no tackles, no fouls even. No player can be this anonymous in a match can they. Sure I'd be miffed if I picked a player who scored zero exactly, almost as miffed as if I picked a player who scored negative points :\

  5. according to Yahoo!'s own matchcast - - Ashton had 1 shot on, 1 shot off, 1 blocked shot, and 1 offsides.
