    Brought Kane back in so has to be him. FFix telling me to pick Sterling though which I thought was odd

    Kane in for the armband.
    Debated getting Son in for the armband as well.

    Newcastle, don't bite me now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,192 ✭✭✭ nullObjects


    Would be Kane if I had him.
    Going with Sterling over Salah


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,551 ✭✭✭ NoviGlitzko


    Currently Kane but it's 50/50 with him and Sterling as when Son comes back in he usually takes points potential away from Kane. Newcastle aren't a shambles at the back either. United options are worth a punt.

    Apparently Kane has just 1 goal in 450mins vs Newcastle, according to some random on Twitter.

    Randmoner isn't wrong, 2 in 540mins though. He's due a hattrick so!


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,796 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    Sterling has 8 goals and 2 assists vs Bournemouth in his last 7 games.

    3 of.them are away games producing 2 goals and 0 assists.

    Newcastle are not the team they were under Rafa. I don't see the relevance of stats on individual games going back a couple of years.

    Stats are more than useful in these cases but not the full story. The stat is just a piece of the puzzle you are trying to solve.

    But is going back to a game in 2015 really relevant here? Kane has one goal in his last two games v Newcastle when they had a superior manager.

    Also he never scores in August.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,944 ✭✭✭✭ dahat


    Use the stat or disregard it, makes no odds to me.

    Also it took Kane long enough to break the August hoodoo.

    Kane is my captain at this stage fwiw.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,691 ✭✭✭ Taxuser1


    When Bruce managed Hull they conceded 104 goals in two seasons. Thats the kind of stat i like. Bruce teams are ****e..


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,796 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    Rushes off to see how Kane did against Hull


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,083 ✭✭✭ Chesty08


    It’s on Kane for now.

    However if I decide to go for Sterling it is for set and forget reasons for the foreseeable

    Didn’t he score 4 or something against them, When he scored 7 in 2 in last 2 games & won the golden boot. Could be wrong


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,672 ✭✭✭ Benimar


    Thinking of transferring Kane in and captaining him.

    However, Kane as a stand out captaincy option at home to a bottom half team...we have been here before and it hasn’t always ended well :rolleyes:


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,723 ✭✭✭ darego


    Aguero. thank me later

    Spurs 3-0 Hull, Kane blank taken off after 74 minutes.
    Hull 1-7 Spurs, Kane Hat-trick.
    It’s going to be the former isn’t it.

    Kane in for the armband.


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,209 ✭✭✭✭ CSF


    If you have Kane, he is the clear captain choice I think. I do not so I won’t.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,796 ✭✭✭✭ PARlance


    Not really considering it but AWB could be a differential if you're into that.

    Palace have managed 6 shots in 2 games, no goals. AWB is a bonus magnet and was starting to get a few crosses in vs Wolves.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,735 ✭✭✭ castletownman


    Using the free hit tab to captain Kane and stock a couple United lads too.

    Kane but debating martial at home to Palace

    If Lingard had a decent leg AWB would have had at least one assist.

    Playing a bit riskier this year as I'm not in as many money comps.

    Here's what I'm thinking so far.

    Salah/Sterling as Safety pick.
    Bilva as a differential.
    Wan B as big differential after Digne did me wonders last week.
