    The pukki monster, against a shaky man utd Defence

    Or .... anyone against palace (think they have 11 squad members on injury bench)


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,709 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    No Aguero?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,178 ✭✭✭ Dr. Bre


    Rashfird for me


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,424 ✭✭✭ Pete_Cavan


    Half thinking Jimi against a dodgy Newcastle defence which is also carrying several injuries. I don't thinkfform really comes into it with him, he is always a threat in every game and would be a nice differential.

    I also have Traore so could go with him if I really want to go high risk!

    How did Vardy and Leicester look last night?

    He has the armband for the minute but Jiminez is also in contention

    Vardy. It's his birthday on Saturday...party time!

    Pukki is currently nursing both a hamstring strain and a toe problem. No way I'd even consider him.

    Other - Traore. 2 goals and assist with max bonus points in last 2 fixtures at home against better opposition (Man City & Spurs) than injury hit Newcastle .

    Is that not his and Wolves' shtick though? Counter attackers?

    Currently on Jimenez. Think Wolves will put a few past Newcastle.

    He has never scored more than one league goal in a game in England
    That’s what has stopped me captaining him before and now

    Yep ceiling isn't high enough with Jiminez. He ticks over nicely but not captainable imo.

    Hmmm I did not know that stat. I would've had both of them down as similar 'steady eddie' types and the opponents were pushing me towards Jimi. Though admittedly Vardy has shown a higher ceiling a few times this season so I'm probably just trying to get away from the obvious choice for the sake of it.

    Stats like that don't particularly bother me, he has only been in England 18 months and there has to be a first time. He gets almost as many assists as goals so is well able to get double figure hauls.

    Vardy but i think i'd be going with Abraham if i had him. Burnley have been muck lately


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,722 ✭✭✭✭ gammygils


    Vardy . ..Jimi vice


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,259 ✭✭✭ dr.kenneth noisewater


    Surprised Tammy isnt on the list, have it on Vardy atm but Tammy is VC


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,923 ✭✭✭ Blanco100


    Martial. Playing up front for United against Norwich and is midfielder in game.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,563 ✭✭✭✭ Father Hernandez


    Vardy. It's his birthday on Saturday...party time!

    Only one man

    17 goals in 19 games is better than a steady eddie, especially compared to someone with 8 in 21.

    2 double digit hauls (10&11) both against city


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,427 ✭✭✭ passremarkable


    Either mane or vardy


  • Registered Users Posts: 222 ✭✭ Dazzler0911


    Thinking maybe Salah.....Looked good last few weeks, on penos and Spurs very leaky at the back


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,178 ✭✭✭ Dr. Bre


    I’m thinking traore now . Just can’t trust what Man U turns up

    How of all players can you land on Adama Traore to be your captain?

    Home to Newcastle. Don’t think he’s the worst choice tbh

    He got some good points v city and spurs at home. Obviously a risk but tempted

    KdB for me for the possibility of a big haul.

    Southampton aren't the whipping boys they were earliier in the season so while I think Vardy could (and probably will score), I don't think he'll run riot.

    Getting tempted by KDB myself
    But
    it is Vardy's first league game since baby was born AND it is his bday apparently
    so surely at least one goal.......

    Jaysus I had him down as a possible bench candidate for me and now I’m wondering if I’m missing something
