    To TC or not to TC, that is the question.
    Well, one of them anyway.

    To BB or not to BB is also a question.

    Atm triple captain Bruno. I was originally all set for tc Kane still not one hundred percent given up on it.

    TC Kane but maybe TC Dcl this week there is so many good options that's the problem.

    I have Gundogan as well,lovely fixtures but to be safer going with either Kane or DCL.

    Who ever gets the right captain this week will be a massive difference pointwise.

    Captain Kane and bench boost.

    Brought Kate back in to TC and told herself to get an extra bag of cans, ill be watching spurs twice next week.

    Likely will be bringing in Kane so it's Kane vs Bruno.

    I don't think any of the City players are captainable as I think there's going t o be big rotation from them now.

    DCL does have the fixtures, as well as some decent form, but he's just not a premium player for me and you need to have a bit of luck/timing to get it right on a non-premium. Not on penalties which often gives the other big options a dig out even when they're not performing. I could see how DCL would be tempting if you were looking t o make up ground.

    Bruno seems the safe bet, based on form. He just consistently gets points and can do it against weak and strong teams. Kane's fixtures slightly more favourable though and he's also been pretty consistently returning all season. He has it in him to explode in one of these games, which makes him tempting.

    Probably Bruno, but might be persuaded towards Kane

    No spurs, Salah C and BB.

    Might chicken out and C Bruno.

    Poll needs more Harvey Barnes :)

    Think Bruno myself as its risky to put it on Gundog or KdB. Kanes fixtures look favourable but you dont know what you're going to get with Spurs lately

    I will probably bring in Kane and may captain him, but I can think of a number of reasons not to.

    1. Burnley have conceded 4 goals in their last 7 away games
    2. Fulham have conceded 6 goals in their last 8 home games
    3. The reverse fixtures ended 1-0 and 1-1
    4. Spurs are a bit sh1t
    5. Harry has a habit of doing nothing during DGWs

    Leaning towards Bruno, it’s about 15 minutes playing time since he got a penalty so he’s due:)

    TC Bruno, cos no one else in my main group will so if he does well I'm hoping to go top :D

    DCL for me. Back to fitness and 2 plum fixtures including a MNF against a shaky looking Saints defense who will be without Romeu. Everton to my eye look to have come into good form. No TC chip to use but will be bench boosting.

    feels quite punty. Fixtures aren't amazing and prospects could be diminished if his partner in crime Maddison is out. Definitely in good form though.

    Any DCL appetite? Southampton have somewhat nothing to play for and WBA are woeful beyond belief

    They're 8 points off relegation with Fulham, able to defend unlike them, closing on them. They'll find something to play for they didn't want if they keep tanking.

    I hate the weekly captains.

    It’s got to the stage that if you don’t captain Bruno you lose ground.

    You shouldn’t be able to own a player and lose ground at the same time. It’s bizarre.

    May as well just leave the captain on Bruno for the rest of the season and try and play the game with your other 10 players.

    I like Digne as a punty option

    Completely agree, I couldn't understand last GW for examle with Bamford owned by so many how Fernandes scoring was making me lose ground.

    Hard to celebrate his points from FPL perspective.

    You lose ground during the United match that week, but not during the rest of the week. If you look at it from a weekend as a whole, if your captain outscores Bruno you gain ground, otherwise you lose ground.

    It's like that most seasons with someone like Aguero, Kane, it's just more obvious this year because every game is in its own time slot.
