    Have both Silva’s and Captain Kun, that’s the key to my gameweek.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,300 ✭✭✭✭razorblunt


    Have stuck Peltier in the XI instead of Doherty. Hopefully he doesn’t pick up a yellow within 3 minutes again.

    Brought ings in for Mitrovic, thought I probably should have gone for Jiminez given he’s a definite starter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,778 ✭✭✭Benimar


    Same XI as last week

    De Gea
    Robertson, Mendy, David Luiz
    Salah, Mane, Richarlison, Jota
    Aguero, Zaha, King

    Hamer, Peltier, Stephens, Wan Bissaka

    Probably stick with Salah as captain. Aguero probably a better shout IF he starts.

    All on Salah Monday night. No pressure lad.

    Banked the hit and the FT :-)

    Foster

    PVA | Robertson | Mendy

    Salah | Mane | Richarlison | Kenedy

    King | Lacazette | Aguero (C)

    Subs: Stekelenburg | Peltier | Wan-B | Cairney

    I'm still not 100% on captain choice...Salah is undoubtedly the safe option but Palace away is no walk in the park.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,199 ✭✭✭✭Father Hernandez


    Ederson

    Mendy | Robertson | Peltier

    Mane | Salah | Pedro | Ricky

    Aguero (C) | Lacazette | Zohore (on the off chance he starts)

    Subs: Boruc, Kabasele, Cairney, Wan Bissaka

    Looking forward to an Aguero masterclass to prove the doubters wrong :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 42,079 ✭✭✭✭Scorpion Sting


    Banked the free transfer.

    Foster
    Luiz Mendy Robbo
    Salah Mané Bilva Richarlison
    Aguero (c) Arnie King

    Fabianski - Peltier Stephens Wan-B


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,395 ✭✭✭✭extra gravy


    Patricio
    Mendy Robertson Peltier
    Salah Mané Ricky Cairney
    Aguero(c) Auba King

    Can't wait to settle down to the early kick off and cheer on my new hero Peltier. I must find out what he looks like first.

    Aguero has let me down so many times before early in a season but I'm still going to captain him. If he lets me down this time it's Salah autocaptain from now on.

    Foster
    Mendy Robertson Peltier
    Salah (c) Mané Eriksen Fraser Richarlison
    Aguero Zaha

    Fabianski Hoedt WanB Kamara

    No transfer.

    I don't believe there's a wrong choice between Salah and Aguero. Or even Mané. I chose Salah as I enjoy a Monday night captain and very few in my main league (who I'm worried about) even have Aguero. So having him is differential enough.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,132 ✭✭✭✭km79


    Haven't changed my team or captain since Monday morning...........

    No transfers

    Fabianski
    Mendy - Robertson - PVA
    Salah - Sanchez - Richarlison - Jota
    Aguero - Zaha - King

    Foster; Peltier, Wan-B, Stephens

    No transfers. Still not decided on captain. Could even throw it on Alexis :eek:
    Currently have Fabianski over Foster in goals, which seems at odds with what everyone else with that combo is doing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,132 ✭✭✭✭km79


    Top 2 in my league have both taken a hit
    They scored 96 and 86 respectively, had 15 starters and no injuries
    Both have aguero and one has Bernardo Silva as well
    Both have mane
    Im struggling to see one transfer never mind 2!!!!!

    Thinking back to bandwagons all I can think of is Mendy for guy in 1st and salah for guy in second ..........

    Lad just behind me on 65 also taken a hit and was also in good shape

    Sounds like a 'guys who didn't score out those who did in' kind of job.

    Wildcard time. Hope it pays off

    Pickford
    Mendy Robertson holebas
    Bsilva alli Mane pogba
    Aguero (C) Vardy tosun

    Speroni Daniels wan b Stephens

    I was tempted by tosun captain but its Everton and they can let you down.

    Good luck to all this gw. Hopefully we'll see some big hauls


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,303 ✭✭✭Mike Ehrmantraut


    Looking like same starting xi
    Only change being captaincy

    Fabianski
    Mendy Robertson Holebas
    Salah Mane Richarlison Pedro
    Aguero(c) Mitrovic King

    Patricio Jota Tompkins Wan Bissaka

    Might make a late change and start Jota ahead of Pedro or Mitrovic

    Team 1 everyone scored 5 or more bar aguero
    Team 2 everyone scored 5 or more bar aguero and bavies

    So hopefully they sold agueo for Callum Wilson LOL

    I've a feeling team one will have Mendy and Ricky (just spotted he didn't have him so that's a certainty) and team 2 will have salah
    They both had Sanchez so easy to raise cash

    And I've thought way too much about this !!!!!!!

    Feels weird to be so relaxed about my own team selection and captaincy
    Siggy is a concern but obviously I'm starting him and hoping Silva does too


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,619 ✭✭✭double GG



    Foster
    Van Dijk-- Mendy -- Cedric
    Mane, Alexis (C) , Schurrle, Richarlison
    Arnautovic, Firmino, Lacazette

    Fabianski, Sessegnon, Wan B, Zanka

    Think I'll stick with Alexis as captain.


  • Registered Users Posts: 471 ✭✭argentum


    wildcard played team was not right

    Alisson
    Mendy Shaw Azpilicueta Vertonghen
    Jorginho Salah (c) Bsilva Keita Richarlison
    Aguero
