Valencia and Greham are out, Pineaar and Cisse in.
Think I might actually bench Shawcross and go three at the back, play Siggy as he is home to Wolves.
After a 4 point hit I've 8 for the double GW + Siggy, Tevez and RVP. It's all about lucking out on your captain choice though.
Dempsey, Cisse, Jelavic, Bale, VDV... one of them will score big.
What are peoples thoughts on Mata for the double gameweek? Trying to decide between him and Dempsey at the moment, Dempsey has two away fixtures, Liverpool and Everton. Mata has two home games, QPR and Newcastle. Is theree a doubt whether Mata will play both games or not?
I like Chelsea's run in, home to Blackburn on the last day and Chelsea need to fight hard for champions League Places.
I'm taken a 16 point hit!
6 transfers (2 free) this week.
Out go; Walcott,Kelly,Rooney,Ferguson,Varmaelen and Valencia.
In come; Cabaye,Skertel,Saurez,Downing,Assou-Ekotto and Bale.
My team for next week will be
Saurez,Cisse and RVP.
I'll have 10 players for the DGW.
I'm going to take a huge gamble on Liverpool doing something this week. They have been a bit unlucky recently, making chances but not scoring. Saurez or Cisse for captain, I think!
Downing will get you 3 points. Definitely not worth the hit.
I have some magic beans for sale of you're interested.
Captain Suarez for the DGW........and no i am not drunk!!!!
Sold Rooney for him as i reckon the derby will be a low scoring affair,benching any City or Utd players i have
Have 9 doubles plus Siggy and Vorm or Mignolet in goal
Suarez will probably be rested for the cup final so you'll most likely only get one game out of him.
Oh no,totally forgot..........shiiiiitttttteeee......
really torn on a mid for the double gameweek
who would you go for from these three?
vdv overdue, its now or never for this double gw surely
dempsey, hard fixtures but a goal or assist would make it worhtwhile
mata...will he play both games
ill have 7 dgws so want to make it 8
cant possibly leave out siggy or caulker home to wolves
and a little bit scared to leave out verma as hes one defender
who always threatens the goal and having him on the bench
wouldnt sit well with me
I know its nuts but f**k it, I need to gamble this week!
I have more or less 2 teams for this week while most of my rivals have 4 or 5 players in for the DGW.
I'm captaining Saurez. I'm presuming he'll play at least 60 minutes in each game which will be 8 points and if he scores then thats another 8 which wipes out the 16 point hit. Whatever Cabaye,Skertel and Downing do over 2 games each will be a bonus!
That's IF he scores... He'll probably get rested a bit for the cup final too...
Wildcard in play at the mo. Went for Howard in goals with Cahill, BAE and Verm in defence.
Up top it's Jelly, Cisse and RVP. Midfield's my only worry. Currently have Siggy, Dempsey, VdV and Mata. It's a toss up between VdV and Bale so that might change. VdV will be on penos if Ade misses out though so that's a help. Not at all happy with Mata, just not sure he'll get enough gametime over the two games. I'll see how Chelsea get on at the Nou Camp first though.
Subs are Jevans, Val (both of whom I'll be keeping), Turner and Vorm. Might get Sczesney (?) for his last two games. If not, it'll be Begovic or maybe Ruddy. I'm considering a Lpool defender for Turner and starting them ahead of Verm but still not sure I want to do that.
Toss up between Jelly and Cisse for captain. It's on J at the mo but I might change that later in the week.
Any must have players if you're playing the wildcard?
