    Lukaku for me. May swap to Mane before Sat morning

    Mane at the moment, possible change to Lukaku Saturday morning

    Mane

    Will be a tough call between mane and lukaku and may be a massive factor in the week considering the likely low scoring

    (C)iggy at the moment even though he's away. Will probably change. Just want to use Ciggy if I'm being honest.

    Lukaku for definite. West Brom haven't been a defensive stronghold at all for most of this year.

    It's hard to look past lukaku.
    Liverpool mid also a strong option but choosing the right one is the problem.

    Mane or firmino

    Mane.

    class CaptainMane

    If mane is playing a top 6 team, captain him.
    Else don't captain him.

    Fake News!

    Have you actually had a look at his returns? He has had a lot of very big scores against non Top 6 clubs.

    Torn between Lukaku and Mane

    Will probably go with the troll given the unpredictability of Pool midfielders

    Crucial week for getting it right when I only have 8 playing

    Had an unsettling thought just now...Big Andy with the armband....I think I need a couple of strong painkillers and a lie-down asap

    Yeah I'm wary of the Liverpool mid as captaincy options. I know explosiveness is important but they are very inconsistent. I see Lukaku as the safer option. Owning 2 Liverpool guys as I most likely will is probably enough eggs in that basket too.

    Llorente for me. Lukaku does fúck all when I captain him.

    Alternative Facts

    Its been ages since he did though (GW17) more recent history seems to indicate that I am indeed correct!

    He scores well against all teams.

    Build a wall and get over it! ;)

    Between Mane and Lukaku. Currently have it on Mane in the Liverpool midfield lottery. He seems to have good returns at Anfield and Burnley's poor away record swaying it for me.

    Going for Mané over Lukaku. I think WBA have the physicality in defense to shackle Lukaku, Burnley have physicality as well, but that doesn't help much against a player like Mané who's so elusive and fast. Also I fancy Liverpool will want to send a message and exact some revenge for what was an embarrassing performance and loss at Turf Moor earlier on in the season

    The way things are generally going during DGWs & BGWs I'd say Coleman or Jakupovic are the best candidates :P.

    Will the bookies help me?

    Lukaku to score anytime: evens

    Mane to score anytime: evens


    So, no.


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,209 ✭✭✭✭ CSF

    This is a very basic and lazy analysis of what will probably be alot more complex than this, but Mane won't be well served playing against Burnley notoriously sitting really deep. His recent successes (and the majority of his successes in general in this Liverpool team) have come against teams who want to come out and play the game too, leaving space in behind. While Liverpool will surely score at least once against Burnley I think it may be somewhat of a case of the Liverpool lottery here. Lukaku for me.

    Mane gets an extra pt for his goals and a point if they get a cs


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    I'll probably end up captaining Firmino just because I feel he is just as likely to get points as Mane and I'd prefer to captain the less owned player.

    Coutinho is top of FFSs goals imminent table, he's my choice

    I'm getting this funny feeling Carroll may be the one to captain this week (Andy, just to avoid confusion). I can't bring myself to do it though :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,400 TacT

    It's a Llorente Lukaku or Mane shootout here and only fielding 6 players I'm nervous! Probably Mane to trainwreck my season once and for all after that magnificent TC fail on Kun last week.

    Taking a bit of a maverick punt on Antonio.

    Lukaku (c) was always the plan this week but my gut is telling me not to. Think I'll go with Mané.
