    Thoughts on Mason Greenwood? Will he start tonight with Rashford out or is another appearance off the bench more likely?

    I could play Fernandez instead. He was superb against Chelsea and has managed 2 goals and 2 assists this season. Everton have conceded 9 set piece goals (only Villa and Norwich have more) Everton have also been far from free scoring lately and their biggest goal threat in Richarlison is out. So I may well go with Fernandez ahead of young Greenwood

    I know you didnt ask for advice but

    If you're not starting Sidibe at home to Newcastle then when will you start him?
    And if you're never going to start him why are you spending 5.1m on a bench warmer?

    My guess is he'll start wide right with Martial up top. I'm toying with getting him in too, it's tempting to free up cash. The main thing putting me off is I think United will try and bring a forward in to replace Rashford so I'd just want to transfer him out then.

    Same as last weeks rumours but its feasible to assume he will get a rest soon.

    Who to bench was a tough choice. Sidibé was dropped last game. Though I'll be keeping an eye out for early team news later

    I’ve benched Ings anyway in order to start Noble.
    Hoping he actually is benched.

    .,.......Henderson.....

    Robertson....Sidibe... Soyouncu

    Salah(TC).... Mane...KDB... Docoure

    Jiminez...Vardy....Ings.

    Subs. Cantwell.. Lundstram...Kelly.

    I think it's a much bigger 'why' as to why you'd play your FH in this gameweek, than why someone played TC in a single gameweek.


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

    Pope
    Robertson Soyuncu Kelly
    Maddison KdB Mane Salah (TC)
    Vardy Ings Greenwood

    Stek Rico Douglas Lundy

    Was a tossup between Kelly/Rico to start, everytime I bench Rico he hauls so you're welcome in advance.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,684 ✭✭✭ Benimar

    Gazzaniga
    TAA, Soyuncu, Kelly
    Salah (TC), Mane, KDB, Grealish
    Vardy, Jiminez, Tosun

    Ramsdale, Cantwell, Dunk, Lundstram

    Going with Mo as TC.

    Two away games isn't ideal, but who is to say that there will be a better option. Would anyone seriously TC a Man City player if they had 2 games in 3 or 4 days? Pep Roulette will have you on the meds!!

    Vardy might be a good TC option, but it isn't even certain at this stage he will have a DGW.

    Can't decide whether or not to use my TC on mane or just normal captain. Will there be more doubles for big teams? Can anyone talk me into doing it please? 2 away games is stopping from me doing it, if it was even 1 at home it would be an easier decision

    The Liverpool games are going to be torture.

    Extremely likely there will be blanks in GW28 and GW31, all depending on EFL and FA cup results/fixtures.

    Ryan
    Williams Soy TAA
    Mane Salah(c) KDB Trossard
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    Subs: Lundy, Kelly, Dendoncker


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


    McCarthy

    Cathcart | Sidibe | TAA

    Salah (TC) | Mane | KDB | Fleck

    Vardy | Jiminez | Ings

    -Button | Lundstram | Cantwell | Rico

    Could be a huge week if Salah hauls and the flukey casuals miss the deadline.

    Note: it's my first time benching the Lord since his 21 pointer in GW 11

    What are people with Jimenez and 2 Pool defenders doing?

    It feels ridiculous to be benching a player who got 2 at the weekend, but a non Jimenez goal costs 2 CS, even a Jimenez winner and 3 BPS would mean a point less than the 2 CS if Pool keep them out

    Have TAA, Gomez and Mane.

    Really want to TC TAA but the % play would seem to be TC Mane as I already have double Liverpool defence.


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

    TC active:

    McCarthy

    Trent Virgil Williams Webster (Lundy)

    Salah (Tc) KdB Mahrez (Hayden, Sarr)

    Tosun Pukki Aguero

    Start Soyuncu or Greenwood, have a feeling Greenwood will start

    Feck it, TC Salah, my triple captains in recent seasons have been mostly flops,i'm not sure if i have even got over 20 points, also my captain picks this year haven't always been the right choice,they have failed me quiet often. Surely my luck is about to change

    Thoughts on....
    Triple captain TAA for the DGW
    Solid form and will prob rest the weekend

    There's always bench boost and free hit that can be used in future double game weeks.
    Odds are City will have one if they get to the League Cup final and most of the FA Cup QFinalists should have one too.

    Pope
    Balbuena (I know guys, I KNOW!) - TAA - Dunk
    Maddison - KDB - Mane - Snodgrass
    DCL - Jimi - Bobby F (c)

    Button: Soy - Lundstram - Dendoncker

    I mean I could have just gotten Salah for Maddison but nope, got Fun Bobby for Jamie Vardy. I mean, I'm at 900k so who really cares anyway?

    Odds on Balbuena coming on late to shore up a clean sheet to get me 1 point? :pac:
