    Everton have a tough run of fixtures to start, maybe bring Pickford in after GW5.

    Can we make a rule this year that you need to review someone else's team before you post your own team? Otherwise it just becomes everyone posting their team

    Not sure if Wijnaldum will get as much game time with Salah to start and Henderson back fit

    Could also be playing more defensively to accomodate Salah

    Is 3 duds very risky with Walters not nailed to start ?

    Same worry with Lallana as with Wiji

    Salah/Mane/Coutinho/Firmino all likely to start when available

    Henderson nailed when fit leaves Wiji/Can/Lallana and potentially Keita :D:D fighting for 1 spot

    Might also be a bit risky to go with just 14. :D

    Thoughts for first week:

    Looks very average imo no doubt many changes will be made.

    Will make a couple of hundred changes over the next few weeks.

    it helps to know who your subs are. Also better to have the pic visible in the thread if possible. First XI looks ok - very decent looking back-line and having PVA and Cedric will earn you some forum kudos :pac: I said my piece on Walters in general chat. Possibly great value if he turns out to be nailed. McArthur i'm so-so on. Will he be safe with RLC's arrival? Tom Carroll is probably the safest bet with potential for 4.5. RLC could prove good value also. Rest of your attack looks very good hard to argue with any of those picks. You have 3 good captain options every week also which is always good.


    Now on to my team:

    So here we go. First draft but i'm surprisingly happy with it

    Fabianski (Elliott)
    Alonso Bellerin Trippier Lindelof Milner
    Sanchez Mané Zaha (RLC Carroll)
    Lukaku Llorente (Murphy)

    Feels a bit weird to be seriously considering 5-3-2, but then again i see serious points potential in the 5 i picked! Of course some of those may no longer be nailed by the time teams' transfer business is done.

    Captaincy options i'm looking at Lukaku and Sanchez (Mané possibly if he has a very nice fixture). Zaha at 7m i like - if he carries on his form from last season he should be great value. I'm favouring Llorente as my 7.5m forward. Was very good in the 2nd half of last season. Nice to know there's some other decent options at the same price - King, Rooney, Rashford - as well as some decent cheaper options.

    Carroll and RLC bench fodder starting off, but who knows there could be some decent points scoring in there. Then Murphy as my 4.5m forward just because (doesn't look like any of the 4.5m options will be starters).

    Budget limits me to 8.5m for keepers then so picked Fabianski but that could change. He's nailed on at least and Swans fixtures are mostly decent til around GW14. Sacrifices needed to get the rest of the team i wanted and last season proved cheap keepers can score above their price-bracket.

    Kun may share time with Jesus or if they both play cuts both potential by half .


  • Registered Users Posts: 268 ✭✭ bodking


    1st draft

    Foster / Fabianski
    McAuley / Cedric / Keane / Milner / Mawson
    Matic / Coutinho / Alli / De Bruyne / Xhaka
    Lukaku / Benteke / Depoitre

    3/5/2

    I'd be worried about miner tbh I don't know if there's enough value in him just been a pen taker and Liverpool leak goals partly because they don't have a proper left back

    I wouldn't go near Matic or Xhaka. They offer very little in fantasy terms. Your defence is too expensive if going 3 at the back, get rid of some of the dearer ones and get some 4.5s in there.

    Im sure I read somewhere he would've been the 3rd highest scoring defender last year if classed as a defender

    I read that too - and that is even with Liverpool's defensive problems which will surely be tightened up a little this season. I think Milner is a good pick.

    I see a lot of Sanchez in teams - is nobody concerned that he may be eased back in after the Confed. Cup? Especially if he is still at Arsenal?


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


    Went with a striker heavy (despite all my complaints) first draft.

    Foster (Myhill)
    Lindelof Cedric Holgate (Long, Mee)
    Pedro Alli Knockaert Walters (Loftus Cheek)
    Kane Lukaku Jesus

    Obviously that strategy will have to be looked at heavily, but I've found that the attacking players outside the absolute elite, have been heavily overpriced, so why not go for the elite themselves while trying to find some bargains.

    Kane, Jesus and Knockaert combo the same price as Salah, Lacazette and Ozil for instance. Which seems insane.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,651 ✭✭✭✭ machiavellianme


    I like the look of that team CSF. Early doors, there's no need for a balanced team. Find 11 of the best starters and try and get some price rises on the board.

    Yeah I've temporarily adjusted to
    Foster (Myhill)
    Lindelof Trippier Cedric (Mariappa, Long)
    Alli, Fabregas, Knockaert, Ince (Loftus Cheek)
    Kane, Lukaku, Jesus

    While I wait for somebody to get injured and value to be created in the defensive areas at least. Obviously I can't really start the season with Mariappa and Long in my squad.............or can I?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    Have been thinking about trying 5 at the back since last season and this is what I've come up with so far:

    Foster (Myhill)
    Alonso Milner Kolasinac Trippier Lindelof
    Sanchez Fabregas Walters (RLC Carroll)
    Aguero Lukaku (Fletcher)

    3 big captaincy options with the rest of the 11 in the 5.5-7.0 bracket.

    I can understand your frustration, it can be a pain I'm sure -I don't frequent the RMT thread too much, but can imagine it's headwrecking when people simply leech off advice without giving anything back. But for me making more rules and regulations is a sure fire way to kill the place. let it flow unless someone's being an outright dick. I daresay this is on that could almost self regulate with the regular advice givers copping onto the leeches and stopping giving advice to them.

    Interesting but there was no defender in the top 10 points scorer last year and none in the top 30 outside of Chelsea.

    Pickford (Fabianski)
    McAuley, Aké, Trippier, Shaw (Holegate)
    Eriksen, Sané, Pogba (Loftus-Cheek, Walters)
    Jesus, Benteke, Lacazette

    Unsure on the forwards tbh.
