    First time all season where it MAY not be Salah. Sane or Aguero for me, no TC.

    I need a good reason to not Triple Captain Kun. He will surely start both games, Pep has to realise now that they can't have any more slip ups. Up against a porous and depleted Arsenal defence, and an Everton team that shipped 3 goals to Millwall at the weekend.

    They have Chelsea the game after Everton, so 3 games in a week, 2 against top 6 opposition. May decide to rest Aguero in preparation for Chelsea.

    Nothing is certain with Pep.

    Cake, and grief counseling, will be available at the conclusion of the test

    Had this been a couple of seasons back, then 100% I’d have Aguero TC.
    It’s a hard one to call because of pep’s rotation roulette. He knows City realistically need to win both these games, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he will stick with Aguero, Sterling and Sane starting both.
    At the moment I’m thinking Sterling as captain as he’s most likely to see the most minutes, but still have that nagging nostalgia to gamble on pep roulette and just throw the TC on Aguero.

    Is Pep reason enough?

    Since Aguero has come back from injury, he has had 474 minutes in 6 GWs compared to 110 of Jesus.

    Pep trusts him more.

    Aguero gets a combined 90 at best, madness to TC him. He is also in awful form.

    I dont think even think he is worth a transfer!

    He has scored in 3 of the past 5 matches.
    In 1 of the 5 he played only 14 minutes
    In the other game he got an assist.

    Awful form surely.

    TC Sane. I have all chips+WC available and I cant see what other week I would play the TC

    Punty McPunterson

    Bring in Siggy and throwing the armband on him over Sterling

    What could possibly go wrong?

    i think i have gone crazy, but i'm going with hazard. sure i'm crazy for still having him in my team anyway so sure why not :D

    chelsea really need a good win to get back on track and no better team to do it against than huddersfield. i have aguero but i think he will only start 1 out of the 2 games and i fancy arsenal for their 2nd game

    Will Sterling get more minutes than Aguero, if we think yes then captaining Sterling makes a bit more sense

    Sterling TC done

    Sané, whether it'll be captain or TC I haven't decided yet.

    Have KDB and tempted to TC.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 8,502 spock.


    Sane normal captain.

    I want my TC to play 180 minutes so it will be one of Kane, Aubameyang or Hazard in another double.

    Unless I'm mistaken, there will likely be 2 more DGWs, no?

    Aubameyang is the one player I’d love to TC.

    Any idea of what that DGW would look like for Arsenal ?

    Wolves away, Newcastle at home but only if Wolves make the FA Cup quarter final.
    (small chance it's GW35 which would be Wolves away, Palace at home)

    You know they say that all man city attackers are created equal, but you look at Sane, Sterling or kdb and you look at Aguero and you can see that statement is not true.

    See, normally if you pick Sterling or Sane as a DGW captain, you got a 50/50 chance of winning. But Pep is a genetic freak and he's not normal! So you got a 25%, AT BEST, at picking the right captaincy choice. Then you add Jesus or Dilva to the mix, your chances of winning drastically go down. 

    See in the DGW 25 , you got a 33 1/3 chance of winning, but Pep, Peps got a 66 and 2/3 chance of winning, because Pep KNOWS he can screw us all and he's not even gonna try!

    So boards.ie qualifying league managers, you take your 33 1/3 chance, minus my 25% chance and you got an 8 1/3 chance of a green arrow in gw25. But then you take Peps 'wheel of rotation' - a 75% chance of winning, if it was a normal single game week, and then add 66 2/3 per cents, and now you a got 141 2/3 chance of getting your DGW TC wrong .See fellow manager , the numbers don't lie, and they spell disaster for you in game week 25.
