    thoughts on Lukaku over kane ?

    Given that there is talk of an injury I wouldn't be buying him, but more so spurs move into their new ground, there is going to be huge excitement from a spurs point of view and so Kane will be going for goals that night for sure. Spurs have Kane and really no one else, United have Rashford first and then Big Rom at the moment.

    Schlupp has just made his way onto my watchlist nailed on recently has been playing oop as a left mid only 4.5

    First name on the team sheet

    Ryan
    Schlupp- Luiz- Lindelof
    Hazard- Pogba- Delafeou-Sterling
    Aguero-Kane-Jiminez

    First draft :

    Guaita
    Wan-Bissaka... Lindelof... Jonny
    Son...Pogba...Sterling...Mane
    Aguero...Kane...Rashford

    Speroni...Valery...Peltier...Romeu


    Top heavy and double palace in defence... hmmmm
    Are City gonna have a double in week 32?

    Both Son and Pogba have gone a little off form the last few weeks. I would probably keep Pogba over Son, on the basis that he's on penalties, where as I think the money be better spent on say Milivojevic and upgrading the defence to like a city defender for instance, than keeping Son. Milivojevic scores some amount of penalties.

    Kane is a no brainer and I think could be a strong captain choice - he's scoring nearly 1 a game on average over last 9 games he started I think. New stadium hattrick could be on the cards too - which might be a reason not to go double palace defence.

    Is there anything to be said for double or even triple palace defence? Go all out on them keeping a CS against Huddersfield

    Just like some lads did with West Ham, that lad Grant for Huddersfield is only getting a run of games now, and has 2 goals and assist in last 4 games, so I would throw caution to double/tripling up on palace defenders.

    there is quite literally no other room on their schedule. i'd say it's 99% a sure thing.

    All games confirmed. Double City & Chelsea GW32

    I am really paying for my bad team value, latest draft

    Kepa
    Shaw- AWB- Lindelof-Montoya
    Hazard- BSilva -Sterling
    Aguero-Kane-Batshuayi

    Will be avoiding the big rotation risks


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,385 ✭✭✭Nerdlingr


    Revised team :

    Ryan
    Schlupp - Lindelof - Laporte
    Milivojevic - Pogba - Sterling - Hazard
    Aguero - Kane - Jimenez

    Speroni - Peltier - HudsonOdoi - Mariappa


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


    Was on a 352 I was quite happy with last night with JWP as 5th mid
    I now have a problem !
    I’ll either have to downgrade ederson or Luiz or Shaw . Or a combination
    I’m most likely to keep ederson even though foster could offer better value perhaps


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,675 ✭✭✭thunderdog


    First draft

    Ryan
    Laporte Luiz WanB
    Sterling Hazard Pogba Milivojevic
    Aguero Kane Jimenez

    Fairly happy with that although might look at taking Milivojevic out for Jota, or go cheaper again and upgrade Ryan instead

    Ederson a strange choice. Be very little chance of any saves point

    Clean sheets are worth 4 save points ;)
    Not fully sure I’ll go with him yet though
    Might even go kepa
    Or cheaper again


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭wonski


    That updated fixtures list got me excited.

    Most in my mini leagues used it already so might be able to cement the lead, especially with wild card still available. And triple captain :)

    Going with Kepa meself I think rather than Ederson.

    Cheapest rotation proof City defensive cover for a potential double cleanie. I think he's a great choice.

    How do prices work forn Free hit? Is it worth dumping the likes of Salah now or just wait


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,829 ✭✭✭shineon23


    First draft

    Ederson

    Luiz-Lindelof-AWB

    Sterling-Hazard-Pogba-Jorginho(=>4.6 ITB for this spot)

    Aguero-Jimenez-Kane

    Bench: fodder x4

    I can go with Jota-Rashford over Pogba-Jim which would give me 1.4 to upgrade my 4th MF slot

    Kepa-Laporte over Ederson-Luiz would give me another 0.2

    Id probably be looking at Deulofeu or Pereyra or punting on Babel or Camarasa.

    Dunk or Ryan will be in my wildcard team so I'm looking at them here too.

    Being late to the Pogba party is hurting me here woth te. Value, along with losing value on Alonso and PEA.

    If Son instead of Kane could provide my Spurs cover itd solve a lot of problems.

    Itll be a long 2 weeks of tinkering ahead.

    Surprised to see numerous Wolves and Watford players in many drafts. They are very unlikely to field their best players in the second fixtures due to FA cup that weekend so they are essentially SGW assets. Brighton might be similar although they should prioritize safety - either way with Chelsea away as second fixture they don’t have many appealing options. Throw in Cardiff and Fulham with poor fpl asserts and terrible fixtures and it’s leaves us with 5 teams to choose players from: Man City, Man Utd, Chelsea, Spurs and Palace.

    Most people will look to get 8/9 from City, United and Chelsea and 2/3 from Spurs and Palace.

    Putting Jiminez et al in your draft team now looks great on paper now but when it comes to the crunch don’t think he’ll be considered a serious option.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,721 ✭✭✭893bet


    If you activate free hit can you make as many changes as you want every day? or do they all happen in one go?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,724 ✭✭✭kennyb3


    Are the teams with Kane and Jimi generally because those that can't afford Rash too.

    I'd have thought the top 3 forwards would be Aguero/Kane/Rashford

    Well possibly Higuain ahead of Rashford but midfield gonna suffer

    Yes you can make as many changes as you like.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,126 ✭✭✭The real mccoy 91


    Latest though process is to go against the grain judging by the drafts put in and go with a 4-5-1 formation kun being the striker. Can load up a nice midfield then.

    Ederson

    Luiz Shaw schlupp azpi

    Hazard pogba sterling lingaard eriksen

    Aguero

    I don't like Rashford on the wing. If Lukaku is fit, I'm not sure I'll go for him. Someone like Batshuayi could be a better option.

    Looking forward to playing the FH to load my squad with DGWers so I can BB . And of course TC aguero
    It’s so obvious . Can’t understand why nobody has thought of it yet

    Would you not be better off wildying?


    On the Wolves lads I think yer right, we’ve seen Doherty rested a couple of times this year. With Jiminez and Rashford so close in price it doesn’t make sense to risk him just playing one game


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,362 ✭✭✭✭extra gravy


    Kepa
    Laporte Duffy AWB
    Sterling Hazard Pogba Mili
    Aguero Kane Batman

    Kepa/Laporte saves 0.2 over Ederson/Luiz.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,352 ✭✭✭MR NINE


    There's so many players/teams to choose from, unlike gw31 there'll be a lot of variety within the free hit teams. Imo the must haves are;

    Aguero
    Sterling
    Pogba
    Hazard

    I also definitely want a third city and at least 1 more Chelsea and United player. Beyond that I'm stumped. Kane maybe, though Liverpool away is tough and Palace are usually resilient enough, plus kane takes up a lot of funds.

    Who else would people class as must haves/no brainers for a free hit?

    I don’t know about Pogba being must have tbh. Without looking at stats it seems like he has become less effective goals & assists wise.

    Lukaku is must have for me.

    Kane is the real conundrum for me
    He eats funds
    But he could easily score well
    However without him I can afford maybe son and a third decent striker ..........if I was to go for Lukaku ..............
    And then I read this

    Hhhmmmm


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


    Kepa
    Laporte Duffy AWB
    Sterling Hazard Pogba Mili
    Aguero Kane Batman

    Kepa/Laporte saves 0.2 over Ederson/Luiz.

    If I need the money I may go off that combo instead as well
    Like the Batman pick
    However it’s one of him or milli for me . Not both

    Very similar all round but I may get go Lukaku and son

    Hhhhmmmm am a bit short for son if I want to go 343 instead of 352

    The only ‘must haves’ are Aguero and Sterling.

    Then it’s 9 others.

    I can understand people that won’t want Hazard or Kane or Pogba but most will buy them as they’ll be highly owned.

    Kane is the interesting one. Could make or break your GW / season.

    Guaita
    Lindelöf, Laporte, Schlupp
    Sterling, Hazard, Pogba, Deulofeu
    Aguero, Kane, Rashford

    Subs: Speroni, Hudson-Odi, Connolly, Simpson


    Double Palace defence not ideal but I can't have the front 7 otherwise.

    Will tinker around
