    Having a full card of PL games feels like a lifetime ago.

    Onto the final stretch.. who you got?

    From the international break to note

    Mount played all 3 games for England (45/90/90) - (1 goal, 1 assist)

    Bamford - played no minutes, not selected for England. Full rest.

    Raphinha - played no minutes, full rest. No South American countries had any games.

    KDB - Played 90 mins in the first 2/3 games, rested in the 3rd (1 goal, 1 assist)

    Salah - Played 90 mins in 2/2 games (2 goals)

    Kane rested in the first game, played the final 2 games, (2 goals (1pen), 1 assist)

    Son - injured, didn't feature for South Korea. Not guaranteed to feature this weekend.

    Watkins - Played 1/3 games, 27 minutes (scored 1 goal on debut)

    Fernandes only played in the first 2/3 games playing 45 & 90 mins. Suspended for the last so relatively fresh. (no goal contributions)

    DCL - Featured in 2/3 games (63+0+1) (Scored 2 goals in the frst game)

    Richarlison - played no minutes, full rest. No South American countries had any games.

    Also, currently on Kane (C), Bruno (VC)

    I am on Kane at the moment. Very tempted to go Raphinha again but I'm in a solid enough position in mini leagues and should consolidate for a week or two I think. No need to go wild.

    It’s Kane if you’re playing premium strategy IMO. Raphinha is a pretty great option if you’re chasing and need to be a little bit different though. Bruno always has merit against weaker teams than United and I don’t think he will be captained that much this week, so he’s effectively a less risky version of the Raphinha shout.

    Going Kane as that Newcastle fixture cant be ignored, they looked terrible in their last few games.

    Exactly the same scenario for me, probably stick to Kane

    New manager bounce after 2 weeks of training?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,620 ✭✭✭ Western Pomise


    Tempted to bring in Raphinha and Captain him...if not it will be Kane.

    Still missing chunk of their first choice defence though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,217 ✭✭✭ Islander13


    Bruno - not tempted to re invent the wheel for this one, though I agree there are tempting alternatives


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,038 ✭✭✭ Brian201888


    Raphina or Havertz I think

    Their previous manager was a big reason for their initial success. I wouldn't expect this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,897 ✭✭✭ Irishphotodesk


    I'm possibly going with son as captain, Maureen has said he will play and I think he might have properly recovered and rested.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,038 ✭✭✭ Brian201888


    Hope she'll have the fry on


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,209 ✭✭✭✭ CSF


    Jaysus, wasn't expecting the Bruno figure to be so high. Guess I'll be watching him from behind the couch after all.


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


    I've switched to Raphinha. I'll probably switch another ten times before morning. Can't decide what to do. Afraid I'll lose ground by not doing kane. but also don't want to play it too safe either...

    Honestly, just pick the one you think will score higher. The split looks big enough as it is, based on that poll.

    Do think it will be Raphinha to be honest. More rest and he's the talisman for Leeds. If Leeds do well, which they should, he should be involved.

    Really thought Kane would be most popular by a long way. Surprising.

    I thought the same, I'm captaining Kane, not simply because of that, but rather because I think he has the highest points expectation this week.


    Raphinha looks a great player, just waiting to explode, but we probably shouldn't ignore that has both more goals individually and assists each individually this season than Raphinha has goals and assists combined.


    Raphinha's underlying stats are unreal but he still somehow only has got a double digit score once this season. Last week Brighton broke the mould and rewarded their backers of their underlyings (me), and those captaining Raphinha will need to hope that they finally stumble upon the week where it all happens at once.


    Kane against a Newcastle side in disrepair just screams returns to me. I actually have high expectations of him getting a penalty too. All is not well in Newcastle.

    All very good points, and Kane has potential for a serious haul. I caught his 19 points against Palace during the small DGW and it was great. Tight one for me. I'll decide in the morning anyway. Either way, this week looks to be shaping up nicely.
