    Personally agree with G&R. No way would I be Captaining Son over Kane if I own both. In that case why would I own Kane given his price tag.
    .

    Surely that logic makes no sense, last week you captained Kane, yet you have Salah who is more expensive than Kane. Why own Salah if your not going to Captain him at home to Newcastle?


    Price tags should be irrelevant when you are choosing a captain. You should be basing it on form and likelihood to score big in a particular week.


    I also own Salah, Son and Kane, along with Anderson and Pogba and outof them, purely based on form, Kane would be ranking last in a table of options. In addition if you watch any amount of game time he has been falling deep this season compared with last. I'm happy enough to have him in my team as if he does score at least I get the points, but also because I don't really see any other strikes worth having atm.

    I chose Kane ahead of Salah as I had a slight fear of him being rested in an easy game for Liverpool.

    I haven't watched much of Spurs this season but I'm aware of the dropping deep. But he's still on penalties so to me that's slightly worth more.

    Personally don't think Pogba should ever be considered for captaincy

    I plan to hold Salah against Arsenal he's the most likely points scorer but I still don't fancy him outscoring Kane against Bournemouth

    Transferred in Sergio so will give it to him - could go horribly wrong but could be a huge differential for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,775 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red

    Pretty much, yes. Form over value seems to be the general consensus. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,795 ✭✭✭✭ gammygils


    Voted Kane here but went with Pogba


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,568 ✭✭✭ thewools


    Still deciding.. either go with salah or kun. Think kun could go mental away to Southampton

    Hilarious the difference a manger makes - imagine seeing Pogba have 13 votes for captain a few weeks back :pac:


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,408 ✭✭✭ sheroman01


    Salah for now. But I really might switch to Kane. I think it'll be a vital decision depending on who rival picks. He picked Kane last week, I picked Salah, which kinda makes me feel he'll pick Salah this week.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,725 ✭✭✭ bantee


    Switched from Kane to Son, tight call though


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,495 ✭✭✭ SickBoy


    Agüero


  • Registered Users Posts: 124 ✭✭ Flyer29


    Still can’t work Salah into my team so it’s Kane again for me this week


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,707 ✭✭✭ Benimar


    Kane, without too much confidence

    Other options were Salah or Hazard.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,651 ✭✭✭✭ SlickRic


    I'm going Salah, but it's a perfect GW for an Anderson or Mitrovic type punt.

    Spurs could hockey most teams in the League at the minute, but Wolves are usually solid enough so should be tough for Spurs, and Palace are the same for their Chelsea game. So picking Kane, Son or Hazard isn't quite as obvious as it might be some weeks.

    West Ham could do damage to Burnley, who are a shambles, and Huddersfield are always going to concede away from home, so Mitrovic should do something as he's Ranieri's favourite weapon as Fulham are going quite direct.

    The disclaimer is that I would pick Son if I had him though.

    Well I went for it, both working out but hopefully Son can stick one himself

    Glad now I didn't captain that clown kane.

    Glad now I didn't captain that clown kane.

    Why? He still scored and in contention for BPs.

    I'm disappointed he didn't score more but it's certainly not a (C) fail

    Nata not to like! I'd happily take that score every week!
