    Currently on Grealish as a punt. Could be a good GW to do it.

    Although looking at Salah out, Fernandes in. If I do that, I'll captain Bruno.

    Grealish for now ;)


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


    Watkins until I probably bring Bruno in for Salah


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,354 ✭✭✭ Jim Gazebo


    Vardy at the moment.

    I personally wouldn’t categorize grealish as a punt.
    I transferred in Bruno for Son and have him vc and grealish captain at the moment. Still might switch them though.

    Vardy or DCL. On Vardy for now.

    Yeah you're right, wrong terminology.

    Captaining Bruno over Grealish feels 'safer' but not sure why. Grealish as good as anyone in his form.

    Mane

    Vardy or Grealish.

    Grealish was my gut pick all week long.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 22,039 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    I'm thinking DCL. Fulham have let in the 2nd highest amount, and look very dodgy at the back.

    Otherwise, i'd say Fernandes if i swap him in for Salah.

    I was as well, but grealish played internationals. Brighton also not that bad defensively. Villa little hot and cold too. Vardy hasn't played, well rested and should manage to do something against the pool. That's my gut feeling at the moment. Hoping not to bottle it and put it on Bruno.

    Grealish or Werner for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8 fitzerelli9


    I'm thinking big calvert-lewin. No one fancy him or seamsus rodriguez?


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators, Music Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 12,591 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Pappa Dolla


    I have it on Vardy atm.

    TAA, VVD, Gomez, Salah, Hendo all out. That's making my mind up for me atm.

    Very surprised to see one person with towards 50% of the poll on this week of all weeks. Wonder what it would Bruno’s figure would look like if Salah was fit.


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


    Rashford!

    I’m happy to go against the grain this week. Serious gains can be made!

    Bruuuuuuno


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,783 ✭✭✭ Dubliner28


    Grealish at the moment but may change to Bruno

    Think it maybe a bit risky going for Grealish c this early.
    A big Bruno haul is more likely I think

    It most definitely is not risky. Grealish is a great choice!

    This is one of those GW’s to take a chance on someone not highly captained

    On Ziyech at the moment. 3 assists and a goal in his last two games (25 points), goal and assist for Morocco midweek too. Surprised to see no love for him on the poll.

    I may chicken out.

    Still on Vardy but have a feeling Liverpool’s defence won’t be as leaky as we think. A back 4 of Robertson Matip Williams Milner isn’t the worst, especially with Williams impressing.

    With all that being said, DCL is a bit unconvincing too so swaying towards Vardy.

    Agree but feels like a week for a punt like this. I have Bruno but I don't fancy it against WBA who could sit in.

    Only concern with Grealish is that he started 3 games for England over the break. I'd be slightly worried about fatigue

    Yeah can’t argue with that.

    A lot being said about a few injured players (Rashford) only training with the team once.

    Fernandes really is the safe option!

    Ziyech capt


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,640 ✭✭✭✭ Rikand


    I'm currently on bruno but all of his hauls being away from home is giving me pause


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,445 ✭✭✭ Cartman78


    Reluctantly have the armband on my newly acquired Bruno.....had a decent week last time out so don't want to undo that progress.

    Deffo a week for shield rather than sword imho


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


    Voted Grealish here but chickened out thank fcuk. Transferred Bruno in for a hit and gave him the armband
