    This is the one thing though that separates 'serious' players from the casuals who could be flukily ahead in the work league all year.

    That and the Friday night transfer deadline curfew obvs ;)

    Can't remember the last time Liverpool had a double. You can have more trust in their players playing both than other teams.

    Will have to try to save the free hit for that GW as aim to keep 3 Liverpool players all season and they are expensive!

    Likely a waste of a free hit in my opinion.

    Easier to bench them, and even play 9 or 10 players.

    Those 'Lost' points will come back when the Liverpool match is refixed.

    Free hit is much more valuable in a week with a lot of blanks or in a double game week.
    Especially in these GWs where other players freehitting too.

    Liverpool have Watford at home before the blank then Wolves & Sheff Utd at home after the World Club Cup.

    Very difficult to say who will be fit and have risen in value that you don’t want to sell. But those fixtures are tasty and also probably ones where we will see a bit of rotation.

    I have 3 Liverpool players at present. I’ll most likely transfer 1 coming up to that regardless of fixtures and bring in in New Year

    Think there'll be a good case to use the Free Hit that GW.
    Everyone focusing on the potential 2 or 3 Pool players but there could be 2 or 3 West Ham, with more stored value, in people's squads by then as well.

    Man city are away to wolves at 7.45 pm on dec 27th with a game at home to Sheff Utd at 6pm on the 29th
    Less than 48 hours
    Madness and not good for FF

    Yeah that's a brutal one for us of all the teams for it to be so close it had to be the one that could actually field a whole different 11 if they wanted!

    I must not get 3 West Ham players. I must not get 3 West Ham Players. I must not get 3 West Ham players.
    Doesn't mean I can't triple captain Mark Noble though


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,893 ✭✭✭ Cypher_sounds


    Fabianski will be back so no excuses not to have 3 :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,953 ✭✭✭✭ alchemist33


    I was hoping this would be the TC GW. They're okay but not great fixtures (for Liverpool)


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,452 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Pity that West Ham are a total shambles right now....the only player showing anything at all is Antonio and he's very injury prone

    Could be on a new manager bounce by then


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,038 ✭✭✭ Brian201888


    FA Cup game in between makes it look fairly tempting for the TC if you assume Salah/Mane get rested for the Cup game, hopefully they get a lower league gimme of a game

    I forgot for a minute that 'Big Handsome' Andy Carroll no longer plays for West Ham. :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,399 ✭✭✭✭ ThunbergsAreGo


    Planned it out there, think I'm looking at Gomez, Robbo, Mane and Fabianski for the double


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,453 ✭✭✭ skippy15


    Had looked at fabianski but he has Liverpool and Leicester, so if anything a hammer attacker but think nothing, I'll get Alison in goals should be secured the double start and set and forget hi for the season

    West Ham after decent fixtures around it though and Fabianski is the best three pointer in the game

    Interesting...

    Think I'll be going double defence.

    I had been planning getting Salah in and triple captaining him as a differential .
    To have TAA, Mane and Salah.
    All rivals have Mane. None have Salah.

    But double pool defence is probably the simplest thing to do and TC Mane.

    Fabianski only real option for west ham for me, i dont fancy gambling on Antonio or Anderson or Noble converting a penalty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,180 ✭✭✭ Dr. Bre


    I’m thinking TAA salah and bobby. Prob mane hat trick to burn me so!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,710 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Just saw these are both midweek games with an FA cup/rest at the weekend. People who have used their TC will be pretty p!ssed

    It's tempting alright although the TC chip has always been a sh1tshow for me.

    Was half thinking of keeping it for GW38 and sticking it on whoever's is playing an already relegated side...Aguero or KDB against Norwich looking tempting already (assuming the Champions league isn't a factor)
