    Agreed.

    Captaining the shít out of Kane... So knowing my luck, he's gonna blank

    Kane is beyond sensible. But I may still go for Aguero. I think City/Arsenal will be higher scoring than Spurs/Palace.

    I agree with you and if I had Kun I'd be very very tempted
    But I don't
    So Kane it is

    Kane it is. But when I captain Harry he blanks. When I don't he gets a brace :(
    Could be tempted by Rom against an out of form Chelsea

    Voted Kane but now think Aguero. Damn it's tough because this is the sort of game at home against a heavily defending team that Spurs manage a 0-0 in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,102 ✭✭✭ Dearg81


    I'm going with Aguero. City are on fire and playing an attacking team. There should be a lot of goals and Sergio looked sharp against Napoli. Kane did look good last night but spurs havent been tearing teams apart at home the way city do.


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

    On Sterling atm as I've Jesus & no Aguero

    Will probably (inevitably) swap back to Kane

    They are after beating Real Madrid 3-1 and Liverpool 4-1 at home in their last 2 games :confused:

    My panic sale of Kane last week is killing me now and not taking an extra -4 hit to get him back.
    Have Alli in as captain at the moment but may take a punt on Salah to be different to the Kane/Aguero captainers in my league.

    Teams intent on defending can befuddle them at times.

    Sticking on Kane, not bothered what happens

    I kind of feel Kane will disappoint this week but I've got to put weird feelings aside and do the sensible thing which is to captain Kane.

    Counter attack goals mostly. Different type of games.

    **Completely meaningless stat alert**

    Kane has only scored twice in 7 games against Palace.

    Off sick from work so will spend most of the day in an antibiotic fuelled state of procrastination whether to get Kane back for a hit (and dumping Sanchez)

    Mines on Atsu at the moment. Will inevitably bottle it

    Just switched from Kane to Aguero. I think City could maul Arsenal this weekend. Also Spurs have had difficulty breaking down some of the weaker teams at home and may have a bit of a Champions League hangover.

    It's a bit of risk...Kane for sure is the safer option.

    You should that's crazy !
    Don't see many goals in that game tbh . Im debating playing Daniels ahead of Ritchie !

    I prefer captaining Kane when he's not so much of a no-brainer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,742 ✭✭✭ Thepoet85


    Flipping between Kane and Kun.
    Edington towards Kun at the minute as Arsenal will have had one day less to recover for the game.

    Plus, it's Aguero against that Arsenal defence.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,189 ✭✭✭✭ Shanotheslayer


    Sorry can't multi quote on phone.

    My reasoning for Atsu is that Bournemouth are sh1te. Concede every game. Atsu has looked decent. No game mid week. Newcastle look like they're playing well also.

    Will no doubt go to Kane but I need a differential for my leagues

    Literally not a single player who played last night for Arsenal will play against City, just in case that helps your thinking.

    The only player even on the bench was Cech.

    Arsenal's starting XI will be completely fresh.

    Can still see the thinking behind Aguero tbh, City are just so deadly. I'm tempted myself.

    Everyone else has Kane, so i'm going for Alli, i have Kane as vc

    It's GW 10, very early to be talking about differentials!

    This game is best played vs yourself, at least for the first 25 - 30 GWs. If you are far behind a certain person at that stage you can start looking at their team and start taking pot shots and making differential decisions to try and catch them.

    Making a move like captaining Atsu is only going to keep you further behind and make the lead more unassailable.

    If you want a football metaphor, it's like your 2-0 down 20 minutes in and you decide to start putting your keeper up for corners!

    It's a mad move imo, but good luck if you go for it!

    I currently have my team set up as :

    Elliot
    Tripper - Gomes - Ward - Jones
    KDB - Choupo - Doucoure
    Lukaku - Jesus (V) - Kane (C)

    Bench:
    Myhil - atsu - Otimendi - Matic

    any suggestions on changes or does this look good?

    They have conceded 3 goals in last 4 games including playing Spurs and Chelsea
    There will not be many goals in that game tomorrow
    You might get lucky but on the balance of probability you are looking at 2/3 points
    Might end up same as Kane but if you are looking for a differential look elsewhere imo
    A defender or keeper from Newcastle could easily outscore atsu !

    Wenger saying Arsenal "won't hide" against City. I'm getting more and more tempted by Aguero
