    Yes but that was without Martinez in goal.....

    Goalkeepers rarely get much of my attention. I'm happy with Martinez but not expecting much.

    Yeah I treated myself to Guaita. Meant I had to get a 4.5 defender instead of Reece James, but there's options from the likes of Burnley that are better defensively then Chelsea (already have Lampety)

    Yeah Serious lack of options this year, had Leno from the start and think he'll be the best option over the course of the season but terrible short term fixtures

    Leno could be the shout, I have Bellerin as an attacking defensive option but he may have to be changed if I go for Leno. And there's plenty of 4.5/5.0 defenders to slot in.

    I'm very much the same and used to take the same approach with defence too but TAA, Robertson, VVD point hauls over the last two years has made me invest more money back there.

    Is there a list of who the peno takers are at each club? The new handball rule will surely mean more penos.

    Last three seasons have averaged the below, tiny sample size for this year so take with a pinch of salt but it's quite a jump!

    2017/18 - 80 penalties over 38 game weeks = 2.1 penalties a week
    2018/19 - 103 penalties over 38 game weeks = 2.7 penalties a week
    2019/20 - 91 penalties over 38 games weeks = 2.4 penalties a week
    2020/21 - 13 penalties over 2 game weeks = 6.5 penalties a week

    Just stack your team with peno takers?

    Where has Wilfred Zaha played in the first two games? Has he been a striker? Will he be taking penalties if there regular taker (Milenkovic) doesn't play which he basically hasn't. If so, then Zaha at 7.1 wouldn't be terrible value imo


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,966 ✭✭✭Trimm Trabb


    Set on 7 of Martinez, TAA, Robertson, KDB, Salah, Mitro, Jiminez. And will have 4 bench fodder slots coming from the usual suspects - just depends on formation which ones I choose.

    Few close calls then for final 4 slots:

    Which 2 would you want from Reece James, Saiss and Podence?

    Son or Werner?

    DCL or James Rod?

    Change Ferguson to Mitchell, rest is fairly template for WC. Not sure on the Foden pick myself but hard to know with Pep


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


    still debating, any opinions on

    Martinez, Steer

    Mitchell, Robbo, VVD, Lamptey, Saiss,

    KDB, Podence, Anguissa, Son, Rodriguez

    DCL, Jesus, Werner

    Probably need to go tonight to avoid price rises etc

    Looks good to me....I have landed on a similarish structure with slightly different personnel.

    I've moved away from double Liverpool defence fwiw....too much money tied up and more high risk with all the recent var shenanigans

    Thank you, yeah the double Liverpool is a decision still to take, however I would prefer Robbo over TAA.

    The bigger problem is that would only leave me with one Liverpool which seems a bit of a risk with their upcoming run.

    It feels very very early to be playing it - though it is good to see some of the better players in here in the same boat!!

    Personally I'd try get jimenez into the front 3, although they aren't bad i just think he'll be reliable enough

    Thanks Podence is a big of a cover for that (a poor one to be fair likely)

    I just feel Jesus is more likely to get an 11 point haul whereas Jimmi will tick over with a 6, 8, 5 etc

    And I am soo far behind already!

    Edit: ITS DONE!!

    You could be in trouble for starters. Foden will be in and out, Brewster might not go to SHU, Ferguson is out, Dunne is a stop gap for Men and Justin for Perreira

    I've pulled the trigger

    Ryan/Steele

    Holding/Mitchell/Konsa/Lamptey/Robbo

    Salah/KDB/Podence/Rodriguez/Burke

    DCL/Jimi/Jesus


    OR

    Ryan/Steele

    Holding/Mitchell/Konsa/VVD/Robbo

    Salah/KDB/Podence/Trossard/Burke

    DCL/Jimi/Jesus


    OR

    Ryan/Steele

    Holding/Ferguson/Konsa/Ward/Robbo

    Salah/KDB/Podence/Rodriguez/Mahrez

    DCL/Jimi/Wood


    Last one is probably the least likely

    Why so tied to Konsa and Holding? Arsenal fixtures not great for next few games

    Don’t plan on any defence subs if I can help it. I think SHU and Leicester could be clean sheets for Arsenal

    Villa should also be a little tighter


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,421 ✭✭✭macraignil


    Going to wait until Saturday morning to finalise team in case I can get a couple of price changes in my favour but now looking at going with:

    Martinez
    Robertson, James, Saiss, Keane
    Salah, De Bruyne, Rodriquez, Klich
    Ings, Werner(c)

    Ryan, Mitrovic, Anguissa, Mitchell

    Any suggestions for improvements appreciated.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,505 ✭✭✭but1er


    Pulled the trigger out of frustration already

    Mccarthy
    TAA Justin James (Mitchell and Bernardo)
    KDB Podence Oriel Romeu
    Finally two midfielder
    Salah or Aubu
    Greenwood or Rodriguez

    Jimi Kane Mitrovoic

    What we thinking?


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,667 ✭✭✭Cartman78


    Jesus...only a couple of hours in to wildcarding and I'm on draft number 398 already

    Martinez | Nyland

    VVD | Saiss | Taylor | Lamptey | Mitchell

    Salah | KDB | Son | JamRod | Anguissa

    DCL | Jiminez | Wood

    Not far off finalising I think...not 100% sure on the Everton double up (???)

    Alternatives would be something like Zaha and keep 0.5m in the bank or switch VVD to Robbo. Is there a danger JamRod might be an assist assister?

    Also not 100% yet on Wood although he looked half decent against Leicester and has server me well in the past

    Like it, I've had the Everton attacking double up dilemma and I've decided 1 is enough. Doubling up Everton over other teams is probably a little kneejerk was what I settled with. I made peace with that by putting JamRod into the assist the assister bracket.

    They're still causing me problems though as I'm set on Richarlison over DCL.

    Wood is solid, he's not in my team but I had planned to get him in before the season started.

    I am dropping McCarthy after he has conceded 6 goals in two games so that would be my main question about the above selections.

    I like the wood pick, it’s the hardest line to pick three for

    Three 5.0 defenders is madness imo given the lack of CSs so far this season. The likes of Saiss and Keane might not get another attacking point for the rest of the season. Given the amount of goals being scored, I can see you very quickly deciding to save money in defense to invest further up the pitch. Lamptey is a more likely source of attacking returns and for 0.5 less. Also having such an expensive defense and then spending 6.0 on Mitro to be on your bench makes no sense. I'd rather have two 4.5 defs and rotate them and spend a bit more on a striker, plenty of options at 6.5.
