promoted teams defence for 12/13 season (unless i've missed a signing)
Cummings Gorkss Pearce Harte
Fox Hooiveld Fonte Richardson
O'Brien Tomkins Reid McCartney
all will surely be 4.0.....
All three had similar goals conceded totals last season:
West Ham 48
Clean Sheet totals:
West Ham 17

Southampton's full-backs really get forward and got around 20 assists between them last season. Could be worth a look. Danny Butterfield could take Richardson's place, he finished last year as first choice I think.
i think aston villa players are worth a shout this year, if lambert gets them playing like norwich then n'zogbia is a real prospect. he should be 6.5 this year so worth a look
al habsi for wigan for all his extra save bonuses and penalty saves he could be an ideal reserve keeper again.....if hes cheap!
pogrebnyak was lethal for fulham when he played so if reading can get the ball to him in front on goal then he'll bang in quit a few. i reckon 5/6 will be his price!
Could be a lot of value in Villa and Sunderland.
They're going to be my go-to teams for filling out troublesome spots
Another week 2 wild card with the main site causing trouble would be a god-send!
1 sunderland defender if they have a nice home patch of games would be a consideration and mclean depending on a lot of other factors but i wouldnt give up a spot in my front 3 to either team no matter how cheap they are.
The extra wild card favours the worst players but keeps mini league interesting for longer i suppose.
Looks like Fabio Borini could be on his way to Liverpool. Worked with Rogers at Swansea and Chelsea so that could be a good sign. Sure to be fairly cheap, i reckon. if he manages to hold down a starting spot could prove to be a good ff buy
I've heard a good few people talking about Harte as a great bargain.
However Reading just re-signed Nicky Shorey so there will be uncertainty over who starts.
Whoever does start though could be a great bargain, as they are both set piece merchants
it was already posted in the pre season thread earlier today, but since its on prices and finding bargains, i'm reposting it here........
Kagawa £8.5 million . Sigurdsson £9 million . Papiss Cisse £ 9.5million
Hmmm, can't see myself getting any of those at those prices. Certainly not at the start of the season.
Bargain! if hes becomes a starter....i will be watching man utd preseason now with interest.
Sigurdssons price is like Adams last season 9 is way to much for someone who wont play.
Cisse at 9.5 is understandable but 7/8 would of been a more realistic price couse newcastle arnt gunna be like last season.....
Agree on Kagawa. Sigurdsson is nailed on if VDV and Modric leave as expected. I think it's a fair price.
Cisse was 7.0 last season. He was always going to be much higher than that.
