    Contemplating something like this:

    Patricio (Hamer)
    PVA Alonso Mendy Robertson (Wan-B)
    Milner Hazard Pedro Dilva (Guendouzi)
    Aguero Kane (Kamara)

    Milner won’t be first choice in all likelihood.

    Not true. He looks absolutely nailed. That might change, but for now he's good, on pens, and some set pieces.

    Fabinho ?

    Milner is playing brilliantly. If anyone is to make way I'd say Wijnaldum for Fabinho. But honestly I can't see Klopp changing anything at the moment. 3 wins out of 3 and 3 clean sheets. Why would he.

    True
    Champ league time soon
    Milner is prime candidate for rotation imo

    Wijnaldum was clear man of the match, for me, today.

    Yeah he was good today. As was Keita. No argument for dropping any of the mids for now

    Is 4-5-1 a bad idea?

    Sitting on

    Foster hamer
    Bellerin robbo mendy bavies wan b
    Hazard Salah mhki Anderson walcott
    Aguero kamara success

    It's a very rough draft but just messing with ideas at this stage

    Lovely midfield, would be nice if you could get Kane instead of Kun when he hits form and Alonso instead of Bellerin

    With that squad it would be 541
    Anderson is a dodgy pick

    He very much passed the eye test yesterday looked the best player on the pitch fixtures aren't great for the next few weeks but he's on my watch list

    You get could Pedro instead, I know you'd be doubling up with Hazard but their next few fixtures could be worth it

    Aguero, Zaha and Ings to light a front line? I. Trying to fit Hazard in midfield.

    I stuck with my preseason plan and wildcard
    I set up for those 2 weeks and hoped to get a decent start . I have even if I'm still 30 behind in main league. The plan was then to jump on a couple of tea!s who have a really really good run of fixtures. I've also avoided a fair few price drops .
    So it's a little experment. A proactive rather than reactive wildcard . Let's see how it goes . It's also set up with a specific week in mind ............best laid plans and all that..........
    I've spent WAY more on keepers and defence that usual but that's due to the value in midfield this year
    I had Ings in for Arnie but I don't trust Southampton/Hughes and I didn't need the extra money in the end
    Mane and auba the 2 players I fear not owning as they will be in a lot of teams around me
    Kane isn't

    GK
    Schmeichel /Hennessy- decent rotation and more importantly when Palaces fixtures turn Leicester have good ones. At that stage I won't need a second playing keeper hopefully and will downgrade .........

    Def
    Robertson Mendy WanB Alonso Steve cook
    already owned first 3. Alonso could be a disaster but if he is its easy to downgrade to Bavies . Steve Cook will be my 5th defender . I needed a defender from a team with a good fixture for one particular week..........I got his first rise and hopefully knock a second out of him. Doherty when he dropped to 4.4 tempted me as did Holebas at 4.6
    Reality is he won't be played hopefully bar that one week

    Mid
    Salah Ricky Miki Pedro Fraser
    This was the main reason for wildcarding . Couple of 50/50 calls wrong and wanted in on Arsenal and Chelsea attack
    Pedro a risk but lots of other options of he doesn't work out. Maddison being the number one target

    Fwd
    Aguero Arnie Mitrovic
    Had the first 2 . Been very very impressed with Mitrovic despite what I said preseson .
    Happy to chance him for a few weeks
    Arnie could have become zaha but I just prefer Arnie. He has more of an eye for goal and has pens. And he is a lunatic !!!

    0.3 ITB

    It's a different team set up than usual for me so be interesting to see how it goes

    One final note . I wildcards basically over one evening . Sunday I think it was . And !add a few changes Monday and that was it. Much more relaxed about it as I had the bones of the squad together and the rest in my head since preseason.

    Should be top of that league tonight !

    Looking at getting Hazard Mane Salah Aguero and Alonso in

    Begovic Boruc
    Mendy Alonso Gomez Holebas Wan-B
    Hazard Mane Salah Walcott Mendy
    Aguero Ings Kamara

    Tempted to go now before the inevitable rises....

    One plays for Leicester. Not too highly owned and has played both matches since he arrived.

    Any other thoughts on it? :)

    Should I downgrade Walcott? Maybe have Mitrovic and play 4-3-3?

    After a little tinkering I can make a nice team without salah but I'm hesitant

    Foster hamer

    Mane hazard walcott mhki Fraser
    Kane Joselu Jimenez

    Is a premium backline really the way to go this year?

    I'd be reluctant to go without Salah. I'd be reluctant to go without Aguero.

    No way I'd go without both at the moment to be honest. I'd have Aguero ahead of Kane in that team.

    So the difference by going Mkhi over Aubameyang means going 3-5-2 over 3-4-3

    The main difference is -

    AWB, Westwood, Ings and Aubameyang in a 3-4-3

    Westwood on bench

    Or

    Alonso, Mkhi, Mitrovic and Kamara in a 3-5-2

    Kamara on bench

    It looks very clear doesn’t it. But I don’t want to do it. And can you believe the 3-5-2 leaves me with 0.3m in the bank.

    It’s amazing when you write something down how it can influence you. And in fairness the 2-3 who responded to my post couldn’t believe I was considering the 3-4-3.

    I was sold on 3-4-3 until I put together the 3-5-2 team with Mkhi but without Aubameyang.

    I didn’t want to go without Aubameyang but I did in the end.

    I could see it, as per my last paragraph above, but didn’t want to do it.

    I was still wavering and then the news on Ozil came through on Saturday morning so that completely made my mind up.

    I went 3-5-2 without Aubameyang and I kinda feel lucky I did because I was so obsessed with including him.

    Also Lacazette showed on Saturday that they are a better team with him in it so in fairness he deserves to start the next few games.

    Like Km79 I wanted to play my WC from a position of strength and not to be reacting to a shït weekend. I used it when I was top 25k and now sitting top 2.5k but that’s before the United game on Monday.

    My only mistake is that I went with Fabri as my keeper so looks like I have to rectify that already. ****ed off about that too.

    My advice to people using their WC this week ?

    Write down your teams so you can compare them to each other. I had about 30-40 screenshots to go through and deleted until I seen a screenshot that was a better team. I was left with 4-5 teams and finally decided on, what turned out to be, the best team.

    I decided to wildcard this week as there was a couple of changes I needed to make.

    My first draft is below

    Etheridge/Fabianski

    Alonso/Mendy/Robbo (Bennet, AWB)
    Mane/Mkhi/Hazard/Walcott/(Gray)
    Kun/Arnie/Mitrovic

    .9 ITB

    What are peoples thoughts? I love my 3 starting defenders and have no worries throwing AWB in if necessary.

    Any glaring errors?

    Thanks

    I was obsessed with including Auba too but unfortunately didn't see the light like you did. Taken a hit to rectify it this week somewhat but I'm still left without Mané when I could have had him as well as Alonso. Lesson learnt...I hope!

    Activated the wildcard as I had made two changes and really needed to get Alonso in as he is a must have at this stage imo.
    Transfers in are in bold. Players out are Foster/Fab, Peltier, Shaw, Ricky, Jota, Kenedy, Aguero, Ings.

    Team now is

    Etheridge/McCarthy
    Alonso Mendy Robertson Holebas WanB
    Salah, Mane, Pedro, Walcott, Pereyra
    Morata, Zaha, Wilson

    Thoughts welcome please.

    No Kun could kill you. Haven't seen much from Morata to justify him being there tbh.

    Not sure what formation you'll be playing but a bit of fodder could free up funds.

    I'd downgrade one of your mid priced mids and upgrade Morata to Aguero.
