    Gonna hold off bringing Bale in till after tonight's game, just in case anything happens. Probably for Salah.

    Thinking about Lingard to Mount and hitting bb. Playing FH next week so don't want to waste ft.

    Martinez
    Dias Pereira Digne Rudiger
    Bruno KDB Gundo Mount
    DCL Kane

    Johnstone Watkins Konsa Pereira

    Would ye bb here? One thing putting me off is Pep, those 3 started last night, would be very lucky to get 3/3 again.

    You have Watkins twice. Would be surprised if he rested KDB and Dias. Not sure about Gundo.

    Ah yes edited. Ya agree about KDB and Dias and I guess even if Gundo is benched he's more than capable of coming on and getting something. Might just go for it and get it out of the way.

    Looking at Michael Keane as a potential double up at the back pre-31 wildcard (even better if they get the DGW in 30).

    He missed some games before he hit some real good form of late. Anyone know why that was? Is he nailed now? Shanotheslayer is our resident Everton man right?

    The players on the bench are fine but the worry would be at least 1 of the 3 City not starting and then last week Tuchel didnt play either Rudiger or Mount. If Tuchel did that again then he and Pep would basically trash your BB chip. I own both Rudiger and Mount and am nervous of what will happen this weekend, if either dont start then I'll have to get rid which is frustrating as they looked to be nailed on starters up until last weekend.

    Theres a chance those two Villa players have a DGW coming up in 30, if it is announced then the two teams they face in 30 are Fulham and Everton. Provided its announced then bench boosting that weekend would give you six possible starts over four possible starts this weekend. No guarantees that would work out better but just something to bear in mind, Villa v Everton has to get rescheduled at some stage.

    Small chance of rotation now mina is back. Coleman is also fit now so you have Keane, mina, Godfrey, Holgate all battling for two spots. Keane and Godfrey would be my first choice but ancelloti likes to rotate.

    So at 5.1 or below who would you say is the most nailed to play 3 games in 28 and 30 if Everton had a hypothetical DGW

    Keane, Godfrey, Mina, Holgate in that order for me. Godfrey has played the full 90 in 17/18 last games but Keane offers a goal threat.

    So essentially you’re saying that Godfrey is more nailed but Keane has the more upside which makes the slight risk worth it?

    Yep I'd go with Keane if I was picking one.

    Yeah good points thanks. One of things pushing me to do it is that the WBA fixtures turn after Palace for Johnstone and Pereira. But I can just can get rid of Pereira down the line I guess or even this week and keep Lingard. Just re: Mount, he's suspended for the CL game so would be shocked if he didn't start vs Leeds.

    Yeah Mount will definitely start for that reason.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,234 ✭✭✭✭ Muahahaha


    Didnt know that about Mount, some good news and especially a fixture v Leeds where there will be lots of space in behind.

    Still trying to decide whether to do Gundogan to Jota, my heart says yes but the head says leave it be for a week

    I'm wildcarding in 30 and Jota is certainly tempting BUT want to see if he gets back some form so I'd agree on waiting. I'll definitely be getting rid of Gundogan now that KDB is back. Salah to KDB and Gungogan to ???. I suspect they'll be the two moves in the wildcard that make or break my season. That assumes Kane recovers. Him limping off tonight was concerning no matter what Jose says. He is the only striker worth having at the moment and if he is out then the whole wildcard pick changes as I may as well go for Bamford/Antonio and spent the cash in the midfield & defence.

    WILDCARD WEEK
    completely shook up my DEF and GK
    and brought in Foden

    Any suggestions on other changes I could make?

    With 0.5mill ITB
    Fabianski McGill
    Chillwell Stones AWB Shaw Dunne
    Gundogan Foden Fernandez Son Ward-Prowse
    Bamford Vardy Kane

    Fell off the wagon with work and hadnt checked in here for a while. Had another decent week in the end last week and have a lot to build on. I have brought cresswell back in, most reliable man of the year, for cancelo.

    I will get rid of Salah for a -4 today before the deadline, most likely for Son. Will leave me in a position to take another -4 and have 10 players for 29. Will have plenty in the bank to decide what to do, triple up on spurs or bring grealish back for it which would leave me an easy way to KDB in 30/31.

    I'd love to get KDB now but the BGW is stopping me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,776 ✭✭✭✭ How Soon Is Now


    Salah to Bale was done last night. Unless there's something out the blue I won't take any hits.


  • Registered Users Posts: 894 ✭✭✭ onrail


    Sell KDB or Salah for Bruno. That is the question.

    Based on form alone, you'd obvs give Salah the boot, but KDB is a fairly big rotation risk.

    Salah to Son for probably my most obvious transfer of the season.

    Been loyal to Mo for waaaaaaay too long now :-(


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,503 ✭✭✭ eggy81


    Any chance vardy hits form this weekend. Or is iheanacho the better shout at this stage.

    I would love to own KDB.

    Sell Salah. KDB had a long rest now and is likely gonna play every game till end of the season.

    What are ya basing that on?
    As I see it he's started 21 of 21 games he's been fit for this season, and only been subbed off in 3 of those (all on 70mns or later).


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,200 ✭✭✭ nullObjects


    Deadline is today don't forget
    I've gone for Bale as well, trying to set my team up for the skinny gameweek

    Selling the favourite for player of the year playing the runaway leaders, before a fixture against a team in the relegation zone.
    For a player just coming back from injury whos team has lost 6 of the last 7.

    I'm not doing that

    Basing it on Pep being Pep, and the Champions League being a factor at this stage.

    Feel like I want to give Mo one final chance, but tbf I've been saying that for the last 4 weeks!!

    Mount in for Lingard a good transfer? Mount has some brilliant fixtures after blank GW. takes corners (Leeds are particularly suspect at corners).

    Issue is I ll be left with 7 players for next GW with 1 free transfer.

    Would play Mount instead of Cancelo (already have Dias playing)

    Taking out players with a game next week for players who don’t doesn’t seem great unless you’re FHing next week.

    Next week is really preventing me getting players for this GW that have great fixtures, currently have 8 for next week so will probably bank and do 2 or 3 transfers next week.
