    On Aguero at the moment, but not too convinced.

    Ricky. Doherty probably VC if I get him in


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,220 ✭✭✭✭gammygils


    Taking a punt on Ricky. Haz vc


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,191 ✭✭✭✭Shanotheslayer


    Ricky


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,131 ✭✭✭✭km79


    I am glad to see I have not gone crazy
    Having said that Mitro is my VC!

    I am a sucker for a bad boy it seems
    I have not captained Arnie yet though
    That will be happening over xmas no doubt


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,340 ✭✭✭macraignil


    Aguero's my vote but if Ricky stays the most popular choice I might switch to him.

    Whoever voted Mane needs to have their head examined, he’s so unpredictable

    Martial for me, there’s not a great choice IMO, Sterling probably VC over Ricki or Doherty


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,346 ✭✭✭S.M.B.


    My plan up until now has been to let the masses decide by going with the highest place player I have in this poll and the FFS poll.

    Usually that prevents me from going with a left field choice but this week Ricky is ahead in both. I'm much more tempted to stick with Salah.

    If Salah fails to deliver I'm probably a lot more likely to ship him out of bitterness if I ruins my captaincy streak which could be a good thing.

    Martial is just as unpredictable as Mane imo, he hasn't proved he's consistent yet.

    Scoring 5 games in a row is pretty consistent

    His conversion rate is an unsustainable 44%, similar to Mane at the beginning of the season. His stats aren't great either when you take a closer look. I won't be getting him in but good luck to anyone who does.

    Easy choice.

    Aguero. Two weeks rest had.

    West Ham have managed just one clean sheet all season.

    As a non owner though I’ll be going for Salah.

    I don't have the stats, but I'm guessing the same could have been said about Suarez a few years ago or Salah last season?

    At what stage would you get him in - if he scored 4 goals in next 3 games?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,346 ✭✭✭S.M.B.


    I still think Martial is a bit of a trap, similar to Barkley a few weeks ago, and I'm a United fan. Maybe there is some bias sneaking into my decision but I'm not so sure.

    In saying that I'm tempted to bring him in this week as I have Mendy money to burn and there is no value in mid priced mids but there is no way I'd be captaining him.

    Salah and Suarez weren't overperforming though. Salah had a conversion rate of 22% last season, not sure about Suarez. Martial has had very few chances as United have no creativity. His minute per chance is 43 minutes which isn't great. As SMB said, I think he's a trap like Barkley.

    I agree with every bit of this
    I will prob end up not bringing him in as I’ll more than likely be betting hazard the following week anyway

    I considered by him after his first haul a few weeks ago but I saw it as a gamble. Turns out its a gamble that's paid of in the short term but hesitant to get on board as I still think its a risky move.

    Aguero or Salah.

    Leaning towards Kun, but i've a feeling about Salah for some reason.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,387 ✭✭✭✭Green&Red

    You’re probably right, I’ve moved it to Sterling, who is super consistent, returns in 70% of his starts this year and the two he didn’t start in he remained on the bench


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,297 ✭✭✭nullObjects


    Damn my fat fingers.
    Clicked on Arnie instead of Aguero


  • Registered Users Posts: 115 ✭✭RisingDamp


    Spurs missing most of their defence this weekend. Hazard could be a great differential. Evening kick off too.

    Any love for Mitrovic? New manager bounce, playing Southampton. Remember how Vardy was in that season under Ranieri.

    Really torn between Aguero and Salah.

    Definitely the hardest captaincy choice of the season, yet with the aforementioned only playing West Ham and Watford away that tells us how many strong captaincy options we have had so far this season.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 8,573 Mod ✭✭✭✭Wilberto


    In Salah we trust.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,346 ✭✭✭S.M.B.


    Going with Salah, never like going into a week with the top 3/4 options in my team as a part of me will be a little bitter should Richarlison or Aguero go on a rampage.


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


    Richarlison for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,262 ✭✭✭✭manual_man


    Sticking with Ricky. Going Salah in the Sky game (one of the benefits of playing both being you can play the field with your captains :D :pac:)


  • Registered Users Posts: 115 ✭✭RisingDamp


    Didn't Salah score 5 goals against Watford in the league last year?


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,262 ✭✭✭✭manual_man

    Correct. One goal away from home. Then 4 goals and an assist in the home game.

    Richarlison was what I had in mind from early in the week.

    He is now leading the FFScout poll as well, so I don't see myself changing.
