    Has to be Sterling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,660 ✭✭✭ ScummyMan


    Don't have Sterling.

    Aguero if I'm brave enough


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,264 ✭✭✭ Porthallian


    Aguero or PEA.

    As of now it's PEA


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


    Are many of the Sterling captainers also Aguero owners?


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


    Would've been kdb but is now Sterling

    Pukki vc, just because

    I am anyway. There's a few decent captain picks this week with P.E.A especially catching my eye but I'm going for Sterling who I think could let loose this weekend.

    I have both and am going with Sterling. Got a bit of a rest midweek so should be fresher and more likely to play. Also with 2 goals in 2 games seems to be back in form after a slight dip.

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

    Aubameyang up against defence with Steve Cook and Diego Rico in it. I'll have some of that :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,897 ✭✭✭ Irishphotodesk


    At the moment I'm TC on Pukki.... He has a habit of scoring in home games and is against a team who have a habit of not keeping clean sheets.

    (That's my logic anyway.... Could all go pearshaped but if it comes good .... It should be green arrows for me)

    Sterling


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


    Would be a lock on Sterling if I had him.
    I'm not sure of Aguero's minutes so I might see if any news pops up in the press conferences and maybe switch between him and Salah

    Currently Kun (c) Salah (vice)


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,227 ✭✭✭✭ manual_man


    Auba


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,657 ✭✭✭ 2nd Row Donkey


    Mane


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,670 ✭✭✭ Irish Aris


    Aubameyang for me.
    Haven't decided on VC yet, I don't have Sterling or Aguero, so either Salah or Pukki (not that it will matter thoug, what are the chances Auba won't play? :) )


  • Registered Users Posts: 39 Tristan100


    Aubameyang

    Those statistics are a bit all over the place, he has scored 13 goals in his last 8 starts at home against bottom 14 opposition.

    These games didn't happen consecutively so the "5 braces in a row" is a bit far fetched... one of those games is this season, the rest are last season.

    Liverpool were fortunate last week against sheff utd, they also played European football during the week where they showed they can and do concede goals, vardy has scored a brace last week and is in ok form, it wouldn't surprise me if Leicester were to have a victory.

    Also Leictser are not bottom 14 material anymore
    Not even considering mane
    In fact if i don’t make a transfer Soyoncu night sub in and I’m not even scared !


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,451 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    I'm pretending I didn't read the previous couple of posts ;)

    Mane for me I think.

    Have Aguero but can't risk another week of Pep screwing up my captain pick.

    FWIW - I think if Liverpool score early, they could lightly batter Leicester.

    Not sure what any of that has to do with Mane potentially scoring goals? Liverpool conceding goals is immaterial to him as he's not a defender. And he did miss two sitters against Sheff Utd that he would normally score so he'll likely get among the chances again as he does most games.

    That said I wouldn't captain him myself but it wouldn't be a shock if he came away with 2 goals against Leicester either.

    Salah.

    punish the non-believers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 72 ✭✭✭ HarryStuby


    Auba


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,005 ✭✭✭ munster87


    Auba or Sterling. City could destroy Wolves but I’m leaning towards Auba who should get a return.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,764 ✭✭✭✭ eh i dunno


    Would be Auba if i had him but will settle for Sterling

    And no one voted for Mané!

    I had a choice of Salah, Sterling and Auba. Glad I didn’t waste time putting too much thought into it :)

    Of course I bottled it 15 mins before the deadline, didn't I.
