    Strongly considering a Maddison punt - at Home against Leeds who everyone seems to think are dire at the moment. With Vardy out - he needs to step up to the plate and he'll need to up his game in coming weeks if he wants any chance of making the Euro's.

    Currently on Cancelo.

    2 Sheffield United goals IMO were an outlier so CS potential and attacking potential.

    Fernandes, Salah, Foden in my team I can't trust this week as (C)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,342 ✭✭✭Porthallian


    Gundog or DCL. Tempted to stick the armband on my shiny new DCL as a slight punt. Don't see City blowing Sheff away like they did West Brom.

    Also like that Maddison shout from Ace.
    It's gonna be a wide spread this week, guessing the majority will go Sterling/Salah/Mane.

    Was thinking the same but feel he's too much of a rotation risk, reckon he'll be rested for one of the SHU/BUR games.

    Cancelo with VC going back and forth between Son (possibly playing up top ?? ) and Gundog

    Feels very open this week.

    My instinct is that the West Ham Liverpool game will be high scoring so might just go with Salah. Man City seems the obvious choice though, but which player.

    Interesting differentials not mentioned so far are Jamez and Richarlison for Everton, Barnes for Leicester, and Firmino and Mane for Liverpool. Antonio a good shout too seeing as Liverpool have no fit defenders left.


  • Registered Users Posts: 32,776 ✭✭✭✭CSF


    I know I said I didn't think I could be transferring in Gundogan last week and then ended up persuading myself but I genuinely dont think I can graduate to captaining him this week. I think Cancelo is a great shout for those who have him. I do not.


  • Registered Users Posts: 851 ✭✭✭mectavba


    Is there any reason not to bring in Digne and captain him

    Pickford.


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


    Right my punt on Creswell paid off, punt on Bamford didn't so let's try another one Richarlison home to a very poor Newcastle side...

    Raheeeem DCL VC

    Torn between Barnes and Cancelo.

    Cancelo as C did me proud this week but I think I might flip to Barnes because it’s Leeds


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,030 ✭✭✭COH


    Sterling or Salah... surely Salah cant blank 7 games in a row can he!??


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,051 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*


    I've captained Sterling 3 GWs in a row, returning -2, 33 (TC) & 22. He's been a big differential in all 3 weeks, both good and bad.

    I suppose it would be rude to change it off of him. It would also be rude of Pep to rotate him!

    you just made my mind up - I need to remove sterling (he can't get 3 decent hauls in a row...might look at maddison - he is due a haul)

    Any logical reason why he cant? They're at home to Sheffield United.

    you would have thought that every game ...he couldn't get 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 blanks ...but it happened.

    I do think he will score this weekend.

    Cancelo or Sterling....

    Gundogan seems to be playing centrally and bursting into the box so went with him v Sheffield and Son VC


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


    Going with Grealish

    no logic - just maybe pep roulette !


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭JPup

    They're missing De Bruyne and Aguero so I'd say Sterling is pretty safe. You never know of course! At least we aren't likely to see him taking/missing any penos any time soon!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,508 ✭✭✭✭dsmythy


    With it wide open and players expected to score big not necessarily being reliable until proven otherwise I feel free to go a bit different.

    Just went for Watkins over Lacazette. They occupy the top two spots for xG in the last 6 games.

    He has the 2nd most shots of all in the last 6. The most inside the box. Joint second most on target.

    Southampton are middle of the pack in various defensive stats last 6 games and have even disrupted somewhat from injuries and suspensions.

    I'm happy to have a stab at it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,355 ✭✭✭Jim Gazebo


    Getting dirty thoughts of captaining Harvey Barnes after only just buying him.

    Was all set on Gundogan but I'm ****ting that SHU will be deeper and not give as much space as WBA. Hopefully SHU are wrecked from the effort at United. It's on Gundogan over night anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 685 ✭✭✭Newbie20


    Cancelo for me. VC Gundogen. I’ve got tired of picking the safe bets the last few weeks when they all seem to be out of form anyway. Worth the bit of risk when he has a decent chance of clean sheet and possibly attacking returns.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,524 ✭✭✭Deeper Blue


    Despite getting good scores the last few weeks my captains have been mostly blanks. Decided to throw it on Maddison this week, worst that can happen is another blank. I imagine the game with Leeds should be fairly open so I think he could thrive.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,585 ✭✭✭Cartman78


    Giving it to Gundog..... although it's probably a gameweek too late.

    Transferred in DCL but feels too risky to captain him tbh

    Plus it's the early game.... Early game is often bad to be involved in, doesn't always go as expected, would not surprise me if DCL blanks and richarleson or digne get the goals with ASM or dodgy tash getting one for Newcastle.

    I'm leaning towards Madison this week, primarily because he didn't score last week, with vardy out he may be allowed more opportunities (it will probably be between himself Barnes and tiellemens to get the goals)
