    Is mane going up?


  • Registered Users Posts: 976 ✭✭✭supremenovice


    Any.recommendstion for a 5.5m midfielder

    James MacArthur for 5.0 is decent value


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,911 ✭✭✭tailgunner


    Was hoping to bank, but looks like I need to figure out how to get a fourth Liverpool player and a couple of Mendys in fairly urgently.

    Richarlison is predicted to go up in price tonight but he went off with an injury in the last game so it would be a risky game to bring him in without any further news on his injury


    He didn't go for treatment when he came off which suggests it's not serious. He had a great game and was on a yellow so he might just have been taken off as a precaution.

    Caught between protecting team value/ putting out fires and going all out in city at home to Huddersfield

    They were woeful yesterday

    Whilst I think City will thump them I think it’s unfair to say they were woeful.

    I thought they played well and definitely deserved to score at least 1-2 goals. Chelsea were lucky not to go behind in that match.

    just used my free and a -8

    Allison, Bellerin and Cairney Out

    Pickord, Shaw and Fred in


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,498 ✭✭✭✭KevIRL


    Neves, AWB and Shaw all over the 100K transfered in players. Spurs players top the transferred out numbers in each outfield position

    Whats the thinking with those moves.

    These knee jerks are brilliant. The more lads that take a hit the better.

    I don’t see the sense in it as Giles would say if it was right in the first minutes it’s right in the last few minutes. It’s one week FFS, a small sample size. Mane will not 16 pts every week, Sane will be back next week. It’s madness to do a switch like that.
    Likewise the lad switching out Allisson for Pickford, Liverpool won 4-0 and their keeper got a BP, think about that, I’m looking at it going he’s a BP magnet get him in!


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,407 ✭✭✭✭gimli2112


    yeah I put in Jorgino and then found out World Cup sensation Lovern is out for a month. I'd swap him out but just know the guy I bring in will get a red card or something to add to the -4.

    Switched out Luiz for Mendy. Man City have very nice fixtures coming up. Don't think they could of handpicked them better themselves.

    Going to bank and take 2 ft into next week.

    This, hopefully.

    People considering WC'ing already need to step away from the laptop for a day or two. One GW is such a small sample size. What happens next week if Kane or Lukaku bags a brace, Hazard gets double digits, Neves blanks and Shaw is benched?

    Unless your team is in absolute ribbons, with half a dozen non-starters, then make the FT and leave GW2 play out.

    This is what Liverpool do, Mane will score big this week, Firmino next week.
    Who are you swapping him out for?
    If it’s Sane/Mahrez then it is knee jerk, City are playing Huddersfield next

    Personally it was always my plan for a - 4 in GW2. I planned to triple up on City as I didn't want them in GW1. Right now it's looking like

    Sanchez to B. Silva
    Peltier to Mendy

    Or Sanchez to KDB
    David Luiz to Mendy

    Sane out before Huddersfield is a bit though.

    Bar KDB and maybe Sterling or Aguero, those City mid positions will be rotated. If you're going to pick one, just stick with it for at least a week or 2 IMO.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,952 ✭✭✭Morzadec


    David Luiz out, Mendy in.

    Not enthused with taking Luiz out as he was a good pick and I had fully planned to have Chelsea defensive cover for a good few weeks, but watching Mendy yesterday I think he's going to be essential. So want to get on this before a rise, and can bring him in without a points hit.

    The alternative was a 4 point hit and to fund it through ditching Eriksen for Richarlison, but Eriksen looked like he had a good game against Newcastle and I'd back him to outscore Richarlison next week.

    So not getting on the Richarlison bandwagon (yet)


  • Registered Users Posts: 672 ✭✭✭RIALTO1


    Obviously very early but pointing towards 2 wrong choices:
    Siggy instead of Ricky (had Ricky in draft for ages but went with the logic that Dinge will replace Baines and Siggy will be on pens)
    VVD instead of Robertson (no particular reason, just think VVD will get half a dozen goals this season)
    Is Siggy to Ricky to correct, and back the 1m, a no brainer? Anyone see how Siggy played Sat?

    I’d also say that it’s madness to WC early this year. There are so many players being rested after the World Cup that it’s hard to know what a first team looks like for a lot of teams, especially United


  • Registered Users Posts: 674 ✭✭✭carnie


    Gonna bank and give the lads a chance. My two main concerns are Ryan and Patricío in goals but I'll hold off on changing them till WC time.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 14,158 ✭✭✭✭hufpc8w3adnk65


    Cairney - Neves I think before the rise

    I get that, but when it's Sane out for Mane, I wouldn't call it knee-jerk. I would just say it's a realisation of what people should have already known...Both will score well but Mane won't be rotated half as much.

    He's a proven FPL assist for a team that is FPL gold in terms of goals and minimal rotation. I just can't call getting him in as knee-jerk tbh, even for Sane.

    This bit, what if Mane is rotated next weekend and Sane is back in and scores well?
    City are rotation prone but you have Lallana, Henderson, Sturridge and Shaqiri on the bench yesterday, you'd have to think two of those come in next week

    The sample size is too small.

    Sane should definitely start against Huddersfield, Huddersfield who are second favourites to be relegated (them and Cardiff are unbackable), they are off the back of a 3-0 loss to chelsea. It makes zero sense to me.


    Having said that Mane will probably get a hat-trick

    As a Liverpool supporter, Alisson, Van Dijk, Mane, Salah and Firmino will always play unless they need a rest after a Champions League match. You could probably add Robertson, Milner and Keita to that aswell. Absolutely no reason to rest them at the moment. City are quite different, I put Sanchez in cos I had no idea what City midfielder to put in for the Arsenal match. With Sterling playing and Sane not, I still don't. Safest City midfielder is De Bruyne now he has minutes under his belt.

    Had a good start so not planning on anything drastic (or anything at all ideally)…but one glaring concern is Lacazette.

    Had a hunch that he and Arsenal would hit the ground running but it seems that he’s super low on confidence and Arsenal will be work in progress for a while.

    Tempted to bring in Vardy, thought Leicester looked decent on Friday night – the 0.5m would be handy as well elsewhere

    I thought when he came on he gave the team a huge lift, he nearly made an immediate impact right away with Auba on the left and Laca up top.

    I think Emery might start with both of them vs Chelsea

    No need for a transfer after GW1, team set up in mind for GW2. Plan to undertake any surgery required in GW3 with 2FT.
