    Have 2 Fts
    Looking like
    Pickford
    Lingard
    Alonso
    Out for -4

    In: who knows

    * With Chelsea having Utd and Chelsea in next 2 and his price likely to drop. Then buy him back on WC depending on their doubles.

    I might go down to a defender at 4.5 or less and then upgrade Lingard to a nailed on premium MF.

    Have a bad feeling I'm going to end up being left with Pickford for another week. To avoid the -4.
    And if I do I'll probably keep him until the gw31 blanks.
    I really do not want to own him :(

    *I meant City.:o

    After news of Jones being a doubt and his fixture this week, Alonso stays for now.

    Ended up doing
    Jones to Roberston
    Lingard to Doucoure

    PickFRAUD lives to fight another week. :(

    I've somehow managed to have 8 players for GW31 so far
    9 including injured RLC
    2x Pool
    2x Watford
    2x Bournemouth
    1x Everton
    1x Stoke
    1x Palace

    What a shambled!!! :D

    ogbonna garbage to davies...hope he frigging plays now!!

    Have done the same. Even if he doesn't play, he'll have scored better than Ogbonna on most weeks.

    He's Bournemouth top payed player. He's a good striker. He's prob the number one player on the team sheet.
    Fair enough if he gets injured, he very well could but I'm not holding a bench player waiting for that to happen.

    I don't think Defoe is in anyway guaranteed to take the spot ahead of Wilson. Defoe has had a lot of appearances coming off the bench and hasn't been the main man at Bournemouth never mind the main striker. Wilson only came back from a serious injury in gw 11 and has started every game bar 3 or 4 since then and regularly completes 90 mins something Defoe has only done once. Defoe coming back does put Wilson mins under threat but its quite likely Wilson will still be the main striker.

    Am I missing something, why is everyone getting rid of Aguero?

    Fixtures starting to turn, blank on 31, Jesus close to starting again and plus there's a chance that the Thursday match could be cancelled if we do get a bad but of snow.

    I have no stats to back this up but I’ve been watching Defoe all season and imo when he’s been fully fit and available he’s been first choice.

    Even when Wilson was first choice and Defoe was on the bench it was because of returning from injury and as soon as Wilson blanked Defoe was in until he got injured again.

    That’s my memory of events whilst I was watching it very closely.

    I’d expect Defoe to be starting, before the season ends, if he stays injury free.

    7 of defoes 15 appearnces have come from the bench. 3 of wilsons 17 appearances have come off the bench. When both were available you have to remember that wilson was only coming back from a really bad knee injury so it was going to take a while for him to find his ryhthm. Wilson also picked up an injury at this stage. Wilson played 16 mins in gw 10 his first appearance of the season and howe started him then in gw 11 over defoe. I think defoe could well get a run in the team but I think the evidence would say howe really rates wilson and I dont think we can assume defoe will automatically now become first choice again.

    Wilson -> Firmino
    Sterling -> Walcott
    Son -> Delofeu

    -4

    Feels like that could easily backfire but I wanted Firmino, Son's had four blanks and it gives me 2 extra players for GW31 (assuming Spurs don't play). Also, have Ibe and 2 bournemouth felt like overkill.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,456 ✭✭✭ patmac


    Sterling/Jones to Mahrez/Davies. Is Aguero to Firmino for -4 mad? I have had a nightmare with Kun, so whatever I do will be wrong.

    Firmino TO Aguero? Yeah, that’s a bit mad to be honest.

    I see many getting VVD in. I have Gomez and is close to a drop. Is he out? It'll be a -4 switch for me...

    Also, what about Sterling? I saw he's likely to miss the LCup final but shouldn't he be OK, for thursday?

    Thanks edited now, this is doing my head in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 861 ✭✭✭ tomwaits48


    Thoughts on this move lads?

    Jones, Otamendi, Pogba out
    Daniels, VVD, Mahrez in

    (-4)

    Personally Mee over Daniels even given the fact that Daniels has a game in GW31

    Done, Kun hatty incoming tempted Son to Eriksen for -8. Step away from the computer.

    Finally disposed of Masuaku, Maguire in.

    I agree he won’t automatically be first choice but I think it will be a coin toss once both are fit and available.

    I think whoever performs will keep his place. I won’t be owning either, even though I’d love Defoe as a gamble/differential, due to how competitive that spot is.

    Is it though, could be a Matty Philips situation, they scored twice after he went off.

    Kept both in the end.

    Got Firmino & Bavies for Aguero & Jones. Worked great so far with 'Pool not keeping a CS and hoping for Aguero not to run riot on Thursday.

    Will have to sort out defense now. 'Pool burned me a lot this season. And Chelsea... I must be cursed. Had Christensen and he got dropped. Then I gave in to Alonso and he gets dropped too and now has tough fixtures. Have no idea who to get now...

    Wilson hasn't been up to much lately, any other options out there

    I'm looking at J Ayew. He's nailed, next 2 fixtures are decent, and Swansea have a decent dgw34. £5.4m

    I own him and am convinced he'll be dropped for his brother soon.
