    I am really doubting leno now. Think I will go with Reina instead

    Looking at the Villa Forums, Reina doesn't appear nailed on.

    It is now a straight choice between Rashford and absolutely no playing bench or Abraham and 4 cheap starting subs
    I am not sure Rashford away to spurs outweighs the niggling risk of a game being called off etc. Having said that .....Rashford and TAA are the only 2 of my starting 11 who will not have had a game after tomorrow evening assuming the other 9 start. It would be the most Pep thing ever though for him not to play one of my 3 city players at all.
    Might be better safe than sorry on this one

    aaggghhhhhhh I just changed it
    Who else could possibly start?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,048 ✭✭✭Brian201888


    Nyland could start over him, I reckon Reina will be there'll be a decision to be made


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,890 ✭✭✭Coillte_Bhoy


    No. Any transfers you make this week before free hitting will not count and you will be back to the team you had before GW30+.

    You sure thats correct? I was planning on doing the same

    I'm fearful of him too, but might just stick with him, on BB.

    Good thread here on it. Not sure how reliable the source is though.

    "Crucially, there were two concurrent friendlies that took place on Wednesday. Nyland was pictured and videoed at the King Power Stadium with the B team. This implies Reina was with the first team as Steer only just returned to training"

    EDIT: Villa vs SHU is the first game back. Hopefully we'll get some leaked line ups beforehand. Also, this helps me with Lundstram - I'd much rather he starts for the Villa game.

    Back to Leno and most probably Abraham I go so

    Thanks

    Although I could just go Reina and Nylan :D

    Keep an eye out for early team news tomorrow though ;)

    For now I'm sticking with Reina and Leno. Reina is a good penalty stopper, and as for Leno, City like missing penalties :D

    I'm being tempted to bring in Rashford now too, and it's causing some headaches.

    I was going with a front 3 of PEA, DCL & Abraham with money in the bank to do Abraham -> Jimi next week. Basically PEA & Jimi were going to be my strikers going forward with DCL & Abraham on the cutting block.

    I want PEA, Jimi & Rashford and I could do Salah & Grealish -> KDB & Saka to fund it. I would be losing a lot of value in Salah, but I would also have 1.1m in the bank afterwards, plus an additional DGW player, with another potential DGW player. I think Salah is nailed on for a few games at least anyways.

    Loosely translated as “Rashford and Pogba will not play 90 minutes “

    For anyone planning for rest of season Greenwood May be an ok option if planning on going 352

    The Athletic were reporting that 'Pogba had to win his place back in the unbeaten team'. I'm not sure if they said anything about Rashford though.

    As if Pep ever needs an excuse to rotate

    It nearly puts me off using the FH tbh. I could just get single gameweeks players with the unlimited transfers like Doherty, Son, Sarr that I want long term and keep the FH in case there's any postponements later on. And they might even outscore the City players with their single game. Ahhh don't know what to do now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,936 ✭✭✭✭titan18


    You'd hope likes of KDB or Aguero would still play a part in both games anyway

    This is why I pushed the button last Friday :D

    Which team would you go with?

    Team A
    Button - Ederson

    Laporte-TAA-Baldock-Williams (utd)-Kilman

    KDB- Salah- Grealish- Loftus Cheek (for the win) - Ghendouzi

    Rashford - Vardy - Jimi


    or team B

    Button - Ederson

    Stevens - TAA - Baldock - Williams - Kilman

    Ghendouzi - KDB - Salah - Grealish - Loftus cheek

    Aguero - Jota - Rashford

    Team B leaves 0.7m in the bank.

    Agueros hasnt been having a good season by his standards and 5 subs kind of implies he is looking at 60 mins max per game. (same logic could be applied to Laporte?)

    Think I am settled for now, not sold on Villa at all, but have sort of lost any real interest in the game after the break so going for the most "fun" team. Also gives me a reason to watch the doubles on Wednesday

    Ederson, Leno

    TAA, Egan, Lundstram, Targett (not happy with this), Saiss

    Grealish, De Bruyne, Fleck, Mount, Fernandes (not sure on him either)

    Auba, Aguero, Samatta

    Its a bit of coin toss this week due to the quick turnaround and lack of match sharpness players will have. Looking forward to a Jesus haul......and now I am contemplating him and Aguero

    On the Reina topic, hes number 3 on the list of the Villa goalkeepers I want playing


    1) Steer (may not be fully fit straight away after some time out)
    2) Nyland
    3) Reina


    If not for Coronavirus, Reina would have 100% have been dropped for Villa's next game against Chelsea, given that his absolute howler against Leicester, was not a mere blip in an otherwise fantastic Villa career.


    Steer on the other hand, came back from loan last January, got into the team at the end of February. After which, Villa went on a 10 game winning run, and onto the playoffs of which Steer was a very big part.

    Ah i see, thank you

    Apologies for short reply earlier. Here is a better one
    You can only do one or the other yes
    My original plan was to set up for next few weeks with unlimited transfers
    And then play free hit (my last chip) to take advantage of the DGW
    However it has been clarified that all unlimited transfers would revert to original team next week then
    Pretty unfair that TC and BB can be used in conjunction with unlimited transfers but FH cant

    Thanks that is enough for me. I am still not mad on leno though but may as well I suppose. Unless I double up on Villa keepers


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,263 ✭✭✭✭manual_man


    On the subject of goalkeepers, i seem to remember Ederson having made a few howlers just before things got suspended. I remember thinking at the time he might be about to be dropped. The break came at the right time for him.

    Do bear in mind, that this is purely opinion based. Reina hasn’t been dropped at all and just because it was widely believed he would have been dropped for a Chelsea doesn’t necessarily make it so.
