    Torn between Sanchez and Jesus for triple captain. Unsure if Jesus will start both games.

    He only got one assist, though, and that's putting me off him. I have it on Haz but his non-show on Monday is also worrying. In fact there are reasons to avoid all the main candidates! (form, motivation, rotation, towels on deckchairs)

    Has to be a Man City player for me, playing great football at the moment.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    It's on Kane at the moment.
    Gauranteed to play both games, pens, last game at WHL, Utd focused on Europa League.

    May switch to Jesus or Sanchez, going to be a tough decision.

    Hard to see Kane not returning any points in three games in a row. Think he can guarantee you 9/10 points if that's what would suffice for you in your mini leagues. Let's not write him off after one match. Might just go for him over Alexis. Can't really pick Hazard over rotation worry and Jesus looked pretty quiet the other day. Kane guaranteed 180 mins.

    Unlucky not to get more than an assist though. I fancy Jesus will start both games. Sanchez probably too (though all these games in quick succession and Sanchez looking fatigued towards the end tonight has me a bit worried). Haz may well be rested for the 2nd game if they win the first and have the league wrapped up, so am not considering him

    It's an odd scenario to be in where Sanchez has away to Stoke and home to Sunderland and I am contemplating not giving him the armband. On Jesus at the moment but may change yet.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,415 ✭✭✭✭ dsmythy


    Ah God my head hurts already. Ask me Friday afternoon.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,709 ✭✭✭ keano_afc


    On triple captain. Have Kane, Sanchez, Jesus, Hazard. Head is already melted

    Can Alonso get 2 clean sheets and nick a goal ?

    He did let me down the one and only time I've captained him though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 301 ✭✭ pj12332


    I had Sanchez in this week as Captain. Lucky to get that goal to be fair. Only scored one in 7 and not playing well in new system. Away to stoke difficult too. I've subbed him out and put in KDB. Can't get the two in. So one or the other. KDB most assists in pl, can score goals too obviously! Great game the other day and city playing well now. Also two home games and bound to be goals with Leicester. No brainer for me. TRIPLE CAPTAIN!


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,259 ✭✭✭ dr.kenneth noisewater


    Tough choice between Hazard, Jesus, Sanchez and Kane for me(on BB). Tempted by Kane as I can see:
    • Hazard rested Monday if they win Friday 
    • Can only see Jesus starting 1 game and Aguero the other since he's just back from injury 
    • Sanchez seems to be on holidays already


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,563 ✭✭✭✭ Father Hernandez


    Sanchez/Costa/Jesus for me

    - Will Costa be arsed to turn up?
    - Sanchez to play his way out of Arsenal?
    - Will Jesus start both games?

    Decisions, decisions.

    14 point haul from his DGW

    Not having him cost me big time this week

    3 goals and 1 assist in his last 10 games, at 11.6m, I'd say not having him has also gained you points in this time. Despite last night, I am happy to have got rid of him a few weeks back :)

    Very lucky 14 point haul. 2 of them came from clean sheets. The rest as a result of scraping 1 goal out of 180mins of playing badly. Attacking involvement poor.

    He's probably done just about enough to put me off selling. He's a risky captain. Could easily deliver big points or end up walking about on the left touchline and getting 2 x 2 pointers.

    True, but its cost me top spot in a paid league so I cant afford not to have him again

    True but playing very badly


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,729 ✭✭✭ LostArt


    Probably gonna have to take a punt on De Bruyne, my main rival is 15 points ahead of me and almost certainly won't have him.

    Easy solution

    Sub in KDB :D

    While his not playing well is definitely a concern, Arsenal are in the hunt for an unlikely top 4 spot so surely he'll be all guns blazing with that in mind.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,262 ✭✭✭ iroced


    This may be the most difficult captain choice I ever had to face since I started playing 6/7 years ago!

    It's THE big DGW of the season with 5 teams of the top6 involved! That is all the big guns/premium players are very decent captain choices this GW. So it could be kinda double quintuple or quits.
    And it's a TC GW for many of us!

    BUT. But, but...

    Let's start from the top.
    - Chelsea. Hazard, Costa, Pedro, Fabregas are good candidates. The latter 2 more as punts. But if Chelsea win tomorrow evening, they are champions, season is over. So you'd rely on a great perf from your captain in the first game!

    - Spurs. Kane, Alli, Eriksen. But again if Chelsea win tomorrow evening, their dream of getting champion ends for the second year in a row. How will they swallow it? Top3 spot is almost secured so they'd have nothing left to play for.

    - City. Agüero? Jesus, KDB, Sané... Top 4 is not secured. So they have to go for it! But will Agûero be fit enough to play both games? Will Jesus play both too if Kun is effectively back? Won't Sané get rotated? It seems the best candidate is KDB.

    - Arsenal. Sanchez, Ozil... Same than City. Even worse. So they have to "over"-go for it! But despite their latest wins, they're poor. And if they lose the first game, chances are they won't bother very much for the second.

    - MU. Top4 not safe. But they look like prioritising Europa League. So I don't see any viable captain in their team bar maybe DDG. United have 2 away games. Will Mourinho park the bus hoping for a lucky break to steal a win? A draw would probably end their chances of a top4 finish. Anyway, too much uncertainty over their players for a DGW captaincy. So for a DGW TC it's a no for me!


    Then you have the smaller teams. The only one with a little bit to play for is Watford. They need 1 pt to absolutely secure safety. But Watford have horrible fixtures.


    Conclusion. KDB the best option as of my current analysis.

    Nota. KDB is the only big gun I do not own :pac:...


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,095 ✭✭✭✭ callaway92


    Tight between Sanchez and Jesus.

    You'd have to lean towards Sanchez for extra points for goals/clean sheets


  • Registered Users Posts: 728 ✭✭✭ RicketyCricket


    Aguero being fit again might mean Pep will rotate Jesus and Aguero. Played the 2 up front against Middlesbrough but it didnt work very well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,773 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Morgan and probably huth out for city game ........


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,451 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Already have 3 x City so would take a fairly big overhaul and hits to get KDB in.....so it boils down to Sanchez or Jesus for me.

    Aguero being back in contention could limit Jesus so Sanchez it is I think.

    Stoke away could make it awkward if they're bothered I guess but surely even a half-arsed Arsenal/Sanchez will totally annihilate Sunderland at home.....

    Sanchez > KDB for a -4 is tempting..

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,267 ✭✭✭✭ FHFC


    I've a feeling Sane may be the one to own this week.

    KDB is generally not playing in the attacking 3 mid spots. His returns before last weekend were poor. 2 double digits in the last 15 or 16 GWs. 1 goal and around 6 assists.

    Sane was very lively vs Palace, I was gutted and felt very unlucky to get nothing from him in that game.

    Considering him or Jesus for the armband. Sanchez could do well but his form worries me. Arsenal are awful too.
