    Sanchez fatigue has to be considered IMO. 5x 90mins since April 23 and now another 2 games in close succession. He looked pretty banjaxed towards the end against Southampton. Still capable of scoring well but I'm going for a fresh Jesus with two handy home fixtures which I think he'll start both

    Yeah I saw that, he was out on his feet at the end of the Southampton match. He's an incredibly fit player though and only 4 more matches of the season left for him before he can have a well-earned rest.

    There are doubts with almost every premium player at the moment and nothing we can do really other than hope for the best.

    247,000 people have dumped Lukaku. He's guaranteed to score about 4/5 goals now!! :pac:

    I've been agonising over Sanchez or Jesus all day, but I think I'm going to go with our lord and saviour.

    Aguero it is.

    As an Everton fan I can't see Rom not scoring to be honest.

    He'll want to get that Golden boot. Increase his price. It's weather or not the Everton midfield show up to support him.

    Team is on holidays the last few weeks since 7th was confirmed. Made a nice bit of dollar backing Swansea DNB last week.

    Fancy us at home as we've a strong home record. Put not risking Lukaku in my FF :pac:

    Kept it on Jesus. Spent the last 15 minutes staring at my team on the screen and not doing anything. Paralysed with fear.

    Went for Sanchez in the end because of the extra point for goal and the extra point for CS.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,022 ✭✭✭✭ Iused2likebusts


    I went for Jesus . The only two leagues I have a chance of making money in all the lads I'm chasing have gone Sanchez capt so if Sanchez was to blank and Jesus TC runs amok I'll be in business. However I fully expect my man Sanchez to give me his number 1 fan a final kick in this headwreck of a season.

    Once sanchez got the goal during the week I decided to leave it on him
    Alonso came into my thoughts but the fear of second game rotation was real !

    Did I suggest Azpi instead?
    They used him as the dummy tonight.
    If I was in your stead he'd still have the armband.

    It could be OK. Just pick the right Arsenal player in GW38 :p.

    Walcott hat-trick 2 years ago.
    Giroud hat-trick last year.
    Welbeck this year?

    He's expected to play according to Wenger.

    If he is fit for sunderland it could be a huge score over the two games


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


    I ended up using the random number generator on Google to decide. Gave me Sanchez. Thank you, randomness. Other options were Hazard, Jesus and Kane. On TC too.

    Called it. Id have been 16 pts better off with the TC on Sanchez . It was a bit of a boo boo by me really as all the lads I'm chasing didn't have the TC. 8 years playing this game and still capable of making bad mistakes.

    I feel for ya Busts. Like you said you had to make a brave call and TCing Jesus offered you a way of making up points on Sanchez with very little to separate them before the GW began. I wouldn't call it a bad mistake as there's clear logic behind the decision you made, you just came out the wrong end that's all.

    @ Busts: As much as it feels crap right now, how much would those 16 points have impacted your leagues though? Was under the impression you had a much larger gap to recover and you needed something closer to Jesus getting the 25 pointer while Sanchez wasn't reaching double figure?

    It would have sent me top of my work league which is only small money but still and 2nd in a league with a 400 payout . I approached it wrong really as I had Jesus as a differential on some and then the added bonus of a TC on Sanchez as opposed to a normal captain for all the others.

    Ah right... sh*te :(. Don't know why I thought you were trailing by a lot more and needing a much bigger differential than the actual one between Sanchez & Jesus.
