    Any obvious reason why Pieters was selected ahead of Taylor for Burnley or is it safe to assume Pieters has the starting spot for now?

    Have heard from a Burnley fan* Pieter's is really pushing Taylor for that left full spot.

    *He lives in Burnley and is a sports journalist

    Had planned on no transfer but if Martial is going to be playing up front then I think he's a must have and he'll probably go up in price this week and I only have exact money so might just bring him in now.

    Only issue I have is Trossard and I'm not sure what to do.

    I need that midfielder to play each week so may change to Mcginn @5.5 though that means I have x 3 in the same game next week.

    Two home games next, I'm hoping he just didn't start because Potter wanted PL experience for a tough opening away fixture. Going to see what happens and have 2 fts in for GW3 if I need to get rid.

    That's actually a very good point and thanks. I'll go the same route & see. He was decent in preseason so hopefully gets a run out next two.

    Considering McGinn in for Barkley after that. Will hang on until super cup on Wednesday.

    Rashford on peno's has me thinking of making a couple of moves to fit him in.

    Looking a numerous teams in my league, in order for them to get Rashford it involves dropping a premium striker or 2-3 transfers. Looked a few random sides in the boards league and it's the same. I will hold steady with my planned gw 3 transfers as it stands.

    But if his price stays at 8.5 by GW3 I might revise my plans

    Have a look at his post match interview, looks like there’s some sort of strategy to change the penalty taker regularly to keep opposing keepers guessing

    I bit the bullet and took a four point hit to bring him in, couldn't afford it if he went up. He is just a have to have at 8.5 imo.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,332 ✭✭✭ Always Be Closing


    Ideally I want rid of Diop, Lamela and Pedro (am happy with my front 3 of Vardy, Kane and Aubamayang- also have Salah) but I'll bank the WC for now and get them out over a 3 week period

    You think Rashford is a must-have after one good game against a Chelsea side under a rookie manager and with lots of new faces?

    He hasn't been clinical over his career so far and to say he's a must-have is a bit of a stretch.

    Went most of last season without sterling and it was very costly, not getting caught out again.

    Had to drop vvd for a 4.0 def to afford the 2.5 upgrade from kdb to sterling.
    Obviously wanted to keep vvd but I’ll probably wildcard early and get him back in then, he won’t score every week anyway and we’ll see how they fare out with Adrian in goal, they were carved open a few times by Norwich and lucky to concede only 1

    I think people need to be careful. I don't believe Urd are as good or Chelsea as bad as yesterday's result suggests. One wobble could see Utd derailed very quickly, much like what happened last season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,394 ✭✭✭✭ gimli2112


    I think Utd will be ok. They are significantly better than most teams. I went with Maguire. Where else are you going to get an €80M defender for €5.5M? Sterling's a real worry as ever.

    Anyone else thinking Kane to Auba?

    I am, worried about Kane going up and then having to try and get him back in though.

    Yes but I don't think they will be steamrolling teams every week. Martial and Lingard are very flakey and not much depth after them so there are likely to be some very frustrating games for Utd attack during the season.

    Plus their midfield is awful. Can't see where the goals are going to come from. Remains to be seen whether Martial and Rashford are 20 goal a season players.

    I see the United attacking players a bit like Leicester and Bournemouth ones, some weeks it will be good and others not so good. Probably sums up United at the moment.

    Firstly I don’t think anyone outside of 2 from Kane, Salah, Sterling are “have to haves”

    But least of all an 8.5 striker that didn’t even play as the main striker yesterday that’s never scored more than 10 league goals in a season.

    Surely Martial is more of a “have to have” considering he’s a million cheaper and played out of position striker yesterday and looks like he will continue to do so?

    Is ceballos likely to start for arsenal going forward? He could be decent at 5.5.. any other good options at this price and lower?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,172 ✭✭✭ Dubh Geannain


    Two low price players I'd hoped would get minutest at the weekend.

    Camarasa - Was only transferred in during the week but thought he might be sprung form the bench. How likely is he to become a regular starter with Palace?
    Stearman - Might do a straight transfer to Kelly to have some bench fodder points

    Callum Robinson maybe? Played out of position striker at the weekend and wasn’t hooked even when they brought 2 other strikers on. Had a great pre season too

    McGinn, Robinson and Norwood are some of the best at that price range.
