    Going to be on the road so WC team will have to stay as it is now !
    Start 2 from these 3 (can’t believe I still have strong front 8 )
    Ricky (sou) deulofeu (BUR) jiminez (LEI)

    Normally I’d just go with the 2 home players especially since Ricky’s form is poor BUT they had a long game midweek and he is on so many teams around me . If I was to bench him I’d nearly just sell him for puncheon . But I don’t need the cash :D

    I hate weekly decisions and very rarely put myself in that position.

    I’d go with Richarlison and Jimenez.

    -8

    Foster

    Robertson | Digne | Doherty

    Salah (C) | Sane | Richarlison | Pogba

    Jiminez | Firmino | Rashford

    Subs: Hamer | AWB | McNeil | Balbuena

    Made my transfers early (Kane, TAA, Mitrovic) so got stung with TAA like others but generally avoid double defence so not too upset.

    Double ManU attack feels weird....would have been inconceivable a few weeks ago but seems necessary now imho.

    Good luck to all !!

    I'd put them in the order Richarlison Deulefeu Jimenez.
    It's a tough call though, I think the first two have potential to hit 15 pointers this week while I don't see Jimenez getting more than 9.

    LOL I currently have Deelofeu and Ricky starting!
    I had Jiminez and Deulofeu but switched late last night .......
    It is wrecking my head tbh
    I would love just to downgrade either deulofeu or ricky and be done with it but I honestly have nowhere else to spend the money as I would only wnd up in mid range mid options again and only one jumping out at me is Bernardo silva .......I hace Aguero. I could also upgarde Bednarek but again that gives me a diff benching headache as I am starting doherty digne robbo......
    Deulofeu is in with one eye on 37 but it seems crazy and not very fun to bring him in for Burnley at home and not play him. I need differentials. So lets assume he is starting.......
    Now it is one from Ricky and Jiminez
    Jiminez home fixture and on pens. Leicster are a weird team though and would not be suprised with a nil all.
    Ricky away fixture . Very Little form. But in a LOT of teams around me still and could haul.......I also sold fraser and anderson who are in all teams around me so I need to protect myself somewhat..........
    I actually wanted Siggy but can not get him without downgrading Deulofeu :D

    I choose to take this option on board :D


    Thanks guys
    Will post full squad after deadline. I have already helped out my main league lurker enough.........or have I ;) I think I will captain Pogba..........

    Lat post as I am back on the road after this
    I could do
    Deulofeu to Puncheon
    Ricky to Siggy
    Bednarek to Kolasiinic and then bench kola and puncheon

    Do not have time to look at the permutations going forward but Arsenal do have a decent run

    Will have a think on it


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,940 ✭✭✭ klopparama

    As awesome as he looks and as much as I’d like to own Duelofeu I think he’s just too injury prone.

    He always seems to be carrying something or recovering from something.

    He also rarely plays 90 minutes.


    Richarlison and Jimenez always seem to be available and play 90 minutes.

    Edit - wouldn’t have Arsenal defence at all. Last clean sheet was early December against Huddersfield and before that it was late September against Watford.

    He’s played over 80 minutes in all of the last 6 games though, I have just enough to do Snodgrass (the Bollix) to him for a hit.. tempted.

    Fabianski
    Robertson Digne Shaw
    Salah (C) Pogba Richarlison Fraser
    Rashford Jimenez Wilson

    Bennett first sub if needed, and probably will be for Wilson.

    Next week’s plan is Wilson to Aubamayeng, still leaving me with serious cash to get basically whoever I want in for Fraser the following week.

    Arnie was up top until reports he was omitted. So left with AWB Snodgrass and Dunk

    I wouldn't do that. Keep as you are. Richi can still score big and lots of people selling him might actually make him a slight differential Bednerak is handy way of saving funds and Kola will be benched eventually and Arsenal hate clean sheets with tough immediate fixtures.

    That’s a tough one. I wildcarded in a similar position. Be interesting to see how it compares over the next few weeks

    WC'd.

    Etheridge (Speroni)

    Robbo Doherty Digne (Wan B Bedernak)

    Salah (c) Hazard Sterling Ricky Pogba

    Jiminez Rashford (Long)

    Switched Firmino for Hazard due to the latter playing Huddersfield and Bournemouth plus I think he'll do well against Arsenal. After those 3 games I'll bring in Auba for Long and Puncheon for Hazard. Now I'm just hoping Firmino stays quiet...
