    Question: is it madness to go without City defence, even if it meant having the following midfield:

    Sterling - Hazard - Salah - Richarlison

    I'd be doing the following transfers:

    - Mane & Laporte out;
    - Sterling & 4.7 in

    There's no doubt it'd leave my defence lightweight:

    Patricio
    TAA - Dunk - 4.7 - Bennett - AWB

    Actually, I think typing that out has convinced me it'd be a bad idea. I'll look for another route to get Sterling back in.

    I have that midfield + Fraser. I sacrificed aguero for it though still have mendy and Alonso at the back. It was a gamble but I'm happy enough with it so far

    Just on Sterling, I'd be wary of bringing him in this week, particularly if it means taking a -4. The Utd game at the weekend could be a cagey affair with limited points on offer. Sterling could be rested after the internationals, depending on game time, and kept for the important CL game which follows, as was the case last time. Personally, I'll be waiting for after the internationals and see how much game time he gets before acting on Sterling.

    I think going five budgets in defence is a viable option, allows you a lot of extra money further up.

    Have two FTs this week. Happy with the team except for Knockheart who is contributing nothing. Have 7.5 to spend to replace him. Looking at Maddison or Moura. Can also bring in Martial for either the week after. Will wait until Friday.

    Dont go for Maddison, he is the most infuriating player in the game this year!

    Cannot wait to dump him!

    Maddison pi$$ed me off at the start of the year because he was getting incredibly fortunate returns (and I didn't have him) but I have to say that he has had some terrible luck lately and deserved a good few returns. Shades of Tadic about him this season.

    Vardy to Morata ?

    seems a no brainer on balance of past form but Vardy has nicer fixtures starting with Burnley home this weekend


  • Registered Users Posts: 378 ✭✭ bezuaua


    Greetings!

    Would Paterson (cardiff) to Demarai Gray be a wise move?

    Have just enough to do it and Leicester's next fixtures look nice: Burnley (H), Brighton (A), Watford (H), Fulham (A)

    Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    It also means clean sheets and any attacking returns are bonuses, as you don't expect it, whereas if your all aboard TRAM, you probably have a quarter of your budget invested, so you really need them to be returning points week after week going forward.

    Having one playing keeper and then 5 playing budget defenders could mean having a front 7 made up of any of the following big hitters Salah, Sterling, Hazard, Marital, Richardilson, Fraser, Aguero, Morata, Arnie, etc.

    Did Mitrovic and Fraser to Arnoutovic and Brooks. I know brooks is a bit of a sideways move but I needed the funds to get Arnie in. I’m hopeful that brooks can at least match Fraser. Arnie is a no brainer-on form and has a great run of fixtures.

    I think Felipe Anderson is worth a punt.

    West Ham are scoring goals, attack minded under Pellegrini & have some nice fictutes

    Could work out good, but looks to be a bit sideways a move to be honest and not seen enough of Leicester to give an informed opinion on how good Damarai Grey is playing. Just looking at highlights Ndidi looks to be just as good a shot at a lower price but he does usually play a bit deeper in midfield. Found it difficult to identify a good midfielder around that price myself and Fernandinho is leading the points scoring at that price point if you have a spare slot for a Manchester city player. Decided myself to go for a very cheap 5th midfielder (Hojbjerg) and invest the cash saved elsewhere in the team.

    I'm close to losing/wasting a FT, there's nothing at all I want to do at the moment.

    Ederson (Hamer)
    Mendy Robertson Alonso Trippier (AWB)
    Hazard Mane Richarlison Maddison (Gunnarson)
    Aguero Arnie (Ings)

    Was toying with Maddison/Aguero to Sterling/Wilson, but have about 5 reasons not to and generally transferring in the two players that scored well last week is a recepie for disaster.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe use it as an excuse to get rid of a misfiring Ings? Otherwise team looks great

    I might end up wasting a transfer too unless there's any big injury before the weekend. Can't remember the last time that happened, I'm normally having to take hits! I suppose it's a good sign though.

    If it was me I'd swap Gunnarson for Diangana who's looked really good for West Ham (if you can spare 0.1).

    Take a chance on Huddersfield and get Lossl, Shedite27?

    Only difference to my team at the start of this week was I had Begovic instead of Hamer and Hojbjerg instead of Gunnarson. After the Saturday games and repeated no return from Maddison I got rid of Begovic for Hamer to fund Maddison to Martial. Maddison might do great this week but I've lost patience with him and think there could be better players to consider around that price. If Martial is out of your price range then Pereyra or Anderson from West Ham might be worth considering.

    kun and jos from newcastle is on the bench, I'm thinking swap out kun bring in AUB?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,083 ✭✭✭ Chesty08


    Patricio

    Robbo Alonso Fernandez (Bennett, AWB)

    Hazard Salah Richy Maddy (Ward)

    Arnie Wilson Aguero.


    Was all set for a -4 of Aguero & Ward to Mane & Success

    Having second thoughts now due to form. Not worried about lack of city coverage as intentions to bring in Sterling Mahrez & Mendy over the next 2 weeks (another hit) for Salah, Maddy & Bennett.


    I really don’t want to lose Salah but will have Mane cover & 3 City players is near on essential.


    Other moves im looking at are

    Jimenez for Wilson (allows Maddy to Mahrez week after or Bennett to Mendy).

    Maddy to Felipe Anderson but kind of want to give Maddy one last go this week due to it being Burnley.

    Could just do Hazard to Mane.

    Too many options not enough definites

    Have 2FT and planned on Mitro/Hojberg to Arnie/4.4. But with the Maddison news I think I'll move him on but for who is the Q, Pereyra? Have Wilson so not keen on doubling up with Brooks/Fraser
