    Sorry, forgot to add other option in the poll

    Salah. We're going to be hammered.


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


    Kane


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


    Kane.


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


    Salah at the moment.

    Could switch to Kane last minute and be disappointed for the whole weekend and give out to myself why didn't I captain Salah

    Kane

    Even if you get Haz?


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,226 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    On Hazard atm


  • Registered Users Posts: 42,030 ✭✭✭✭ Scorpion Sting


    Probably Kane again. I think he's blanked 5 times as captain for me but I have a good feeling about the upcoming fixture so hoping he can regain his goalscoring form.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,006 ✭✭✭ the whole year inn


    Hazard


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,413 ✭✭✭✭ dsmythy


    Salah. Don't have Hazard but Mo well capable.

    Stick with Hazard I think. Don't wanna switch and get burned


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,709 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    no Sanchez?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,947 ✭✭✭ Morzadec


    It's a flip hot Hazard vs a rested Kane up against arguably the worst defence in the league vs a very consistent Salah who has attacking returns 7 matches in a row now.

    Not sure there's any other genuine candidates.

    I've gone with Kane. I do think that Spurs and Kane have suffered from fatigue. Stoke have consistently conceded away from home and the 7-2 defeat against City is factoring into my thinking. I do think Kane has the potential for a monster score, although on recent form you would have to suspect a greater possibility for a blank.

    Hard to take it off Hazard given how well he's playing but I think it's going to be Kane for me.

    Kane I reckon


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,947 ✭✭✭ Morzadec


    Seriously starting to reconsider Kane. Spurs have only scored more than 1 goal at Wembley once in the league this season.

    Liverpool are banging them in.

    Salah or Coutinho (if I bring him in) are very tempting.

    Yep...Kane and Spurs in general are far from convincing lately.

    Have Salah and Coutinho so one of them will be getting the armband

    Just brought in Hazard.

    Form over fixtures makes me want to back him.

    Kane got a rest last night but spurs really aren't playing well in the league.






    I'm going to regret this, I know

    I've got a good feeling Kane will come good this weekend.




    *the same good feeling I've had for the last 5 weeks.

    Bavies....as mcgregor would say "will do nothin!!"

    Significant snow possible in the North West on Sunday where the two big matches are on.

    Probably only a tiny chance of it being a factor as pitches are very resilient these days and any postponements are usually only because of road/path conditions outside.

    But in general at this time of year it's usually not a good idea to have a C/VC combo in the same game or even the same shire.

    I thought it was all about form over fixtures ?

    Kane leading Hazard in the poll is fixture over form no ?

    West Ham will be without 1 and could possibly be without 3 of their first choice central defenders. Fonte is out with Reid and Collins struggling to be available. Even if they are available they won’t be fully fit.

    So their back 3 could be Ogbonna, Rice and Cresswell.

    Also looks like a back 4 for Spurs and I’m not sure how much this will impact Kane but I thought the wingback formation suited him better ?

    Could be a case of Hazard being less-owned than Kane in here so far. I have both and going with Haz again :cool:

    Good call.

    It’s definitely not all about form over fixtures though in any case. Like all other things being equal I’ll take the form player over the player with the good fixture but it definitely depends on how good the form is and how good the fixture is.
