    Bruno

    KDB (C), Vardy (VC)

    I don't think Sheffield United will be as poor v United and concede many goals.

    Hoping City will romp home v WBA.

    Captain bruno. United love being away from home :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,827 ✭✭✭✭ siblers


    I want to put it on Bruno but Utd look very tired. I'm worried about KDB game time too

    I wouldn't be expecting much out of Vardy. The Everton defence has improved with the injuries to the full backs. They're very tight and compact now and the full backs don't venture up the pitch.

    Still have Pickford in goals, and he was saved by the post in the last game from a freekick, instead of staying his side, and letting the wall cover the other - he took a step or two to his right, and was no where near a free.

    Yea that was awful. He's capable of howlers in every match.

    Bruno. Sheffield Utd are relegated already and playing like it. Could easily see him notch a hat trick and a couple of assists.

    Having said that given my luck recently he will be rested.

    I'm hoping that Ole can't afford to rest him as they are useless without him. It's more Bruno himself, he's not really had a rest since the season started apart from the first half of the West Ham game and his performances could start to flag. He was largely anonymous against City

    Tempted to go with a Chelsea defender, maybe Zouma, I think they will keep a clean sheet and a defender might be picking up assist or goal points ....and bps.

    Also tempted with grealish...or stick with the safe option of Vardy, hope the party continues.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47 machomac


    So every lad in my league has Bruno. I suspect most will captain him. In the hope of catching a few of them on the hop I'm considering Grealish (which most of them have also) or go stone mad and go with Zaha (which none of them have). Tis a bit of a gamble....Zaha with West Ham away isn't an easy fixture. Grealish with Burnley at home. Any thoughts?

    Watkins. Due a haul

    I like the idea of grealish this week, but United are away to sheff utd, who are struggling in a big way, Bruno on pens .

    Should Bruno start, he could get a monster score against the worst team in the league. Can't see Villa putting many past Burnley.

    Feic knows with Zaha. I think it's enough of a gamble by owning him, never mind captaining him

    Can you realistically see Zaha outscore Bruno?

    The thing with Burnley and Sheff United though is that they’re defensively minded first and foremost whereas I’m not sure West Brom are to quite the same extent.

    Not sure that West Brom are equipped to sit back and frustrate City in spite of the fact that it’ll be their only option.

    Ahhh who knows. Zaha and Bruno more or less neck and neck on total points and points per game. Bruno with easier opposition, zaha perhaps fresher after a two game break. Can guarantee Zaha playing 90 mins. Grealish also guaranteed to play a full game. Sometimes you need a little risk to get the award. Anyways....ill ponder it a bit more.

    Hmm, food for thought.
    Its either him or Vardy for me.
    Notice Ollie didn't take the peno last day.

    Liverpool v spurs has a couple of strong captain options, its a big game with sides not known to concede much but in these games some big names can come through to score big in FPL.
    And surprisingly I am more so leaned toward the spurs attacking duo this time around

    Mourinho has a tendency to not let his attacking players venture beyond the halfway line in these kinds of games away from home.

    If he doesn't start you'd have to think he's unlikely to play, at least. So you should at least have a VC to fall back on, rather than a sickening 5 minutes off the bench for a 1 pointer.

    Whatever about United without Bruno, Sheffield United are terrible. If he doesn't start you'd expect they're unlikely to need to spring him like in the West Ham game.

    I think I left my captaincy on chilwell ....eeek
