    So Big Rom then....

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,702 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    think it's probably best to wait until the transfer window closes, let's say you bring him in, or play WC to get him in and then Kane ends up at City, or even if Kane stays at Spurs - you'd probably want to be bringing him in. Chances are Lukaku isn't on penalties either - so would you have both Rom and Kane, or be picking one of them?

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,444 ✭✭✭caviardreams

    Good shout, thanks - and Liverpool next up for them too. I need to be freeing up funds with an enabler move to allow with Rom or Kane this week though.

    In a bit of a quandary...

    Currently have Tsimkas, White & Target

    White Covid19 so likely missing next week

    Target dropped this week

    Tsimkas, Robertson looks like he'll be back next week...

    Was looking at Duffy, but is he going to keep his place? Also looked at Livmento(Southampton) today and he looked very dangerous but his not a some in

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,099 ✭✭✭✭PARlance

    AWB, Son & Antonio to

    Duffy, Greenwood & Lukaku

    I'll have to pull the trigger this evening if so!

    So many options. Have 2 FTs. Maybe Son in for Mane. Then bring in Lukaku the week after with my 2FTs.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,099 ✭✭✭COH

    Currently want rid of Buendia, Toney, White and Digne.

    2FT and no idea what to do.

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,615 ✭✭✭✭Muahahaha

    It would be harsh if Duffy loses his spot after his last two performances and scoring a goal. Ive the opposite problem, have Veltman coming back from Covid but dont think he starts above Duffy, at least not for the next game. Who knows what Potter will decide after that

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,099 ✭✭✭✭PARlance

    Or TAA, AWB & Antonio to

    Duffy, Reguilon & Lukaku

    Basically have to decide over TAA & Greenwood or Reguilon & Son

    Any thoughts?

    (Duffy my 4th defender assuming Tsimikas' gametime should dry up)

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,657 ✭✭✭✭dahat

    Cavani will be back after the international break & Sancho will be starting on the right. Both will eat into Greenwood’s playing time for me.

    Easy decision

    TAA vs Chelsea and Greenwood away to Wolves


    Son & Reguilon at home vs Watford

    Has to be option 2

  • Registered Users Posts: 930 ✭✭✭Markx

    Not sure White is a sell tbh. Once he's back for Norwich in week 4 which is 3 weeks away he's fine to keep?

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,702 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    Don't think AWB is worth the 5.5m, he doesn't offer the same value as Shaw going forward, so i think downgrading him to a playing 4.5m defender is good - maybe Dier, or there are a rake of other lads. I would be keeping Antonio if i was you - who is your other striker? The thing with TAA is that you picked him at the start of the season for the reason, and that reason has hardly changed, I would fancy TAA and Antonio to outscore Lukaku + 4.5m defender, but Lukaku is probably a good captain choice for some games.

    Is Reguilon worth 5.0? if say Kane went to City, you might want to get him instead of Rom, so maybe having a 4.5m player there would be better, as only have to raise another 0.4m for instance.

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,702 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    It's not a one GW decision though, what about the other GW's?

  • Registered Users Posts: 42,081 ✭✭✭✭Scorpion Sting

    You’re getting rid of Son when loads are looking at ways to bring him in and captain?

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,480 ✭✭✭Luxembourgo

    Going to get Duffy for Tsimikas, then surely one of him /Veltman starts

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,099 ✭✭✭✭PARlance

    Well I'm not actively trying to get rid of him hence my option B (keeping him at the expense of TAA) . But his appeal is lessened by the fact that Dele took the peno today and Kane looks likes he's not going to get his move.

    There's only so many premiums you can fit in and I think Lukaku will probably outperform him. Was very impressed with him and it looks like he'll be involved in most of Chelsea's play.

  • Registered Users Posts: 232 ✭✭Trey13

    2FT and my 4.0 mil defenders are the only ones causing problems. I think I'll hold onto Tsimikas until GW4/5 and see how things go. I also have Amartey but might ship him out for Duffy.

    Won't be bringing in Lukaku just yet. Tricky fixtures upcoming and every one of my strikers has scored in both gameweeks.

  • Registered Users Posts: 22,249 ✭✭✭✭Lemlin

    Want to replace Toney. Have 1 mil banked so thinking possibly Callum Wilson. Newcastle home to Southampton next week. Newcastle are useless but Wilson is a guaranteed scorer. 

    Any other suggestions?

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,099 ✭✭✭✭PARlance

    AWB was a little gamble of a United defensive double up to start, hasn't worked and he's up for the chop. Shaw mightn't be worth the 5.5 based on his first two games either, he was very poor today. Dier is a good shout, just fancied the attacking threat of Reguilon for the extra 0.5.

    Antonio is my only striker, have went with a 5-4-1 so far and it has worked out well.... For now anyway. It's risky and I'll eventually downgrade ESR to allow a cheap playing striker.

    Sanchez (Steele)

    TAA, Tsimikas, Shaw, Coufal, AWB

    Salah, Bruno, Son, Mount (ESR)

    Antonio (4.5, 4.5)

    It's going to be very hard to fit in all the premiums, getting on the right ones is going to be key this year and it may involve rotating them in/out more than usual imo.

    Yea agreed regarding Shaw - i wasn't sold on getting him but at over 50% ownership - felt had to get him - he was the most owned player in GW1 - madness.

    Yea i had a play round earlier on, i could get a team that was well balanced on paper with Salah, Bruno, 7.5m midfielder*, Kane and Lukaku

    *7.5m is Greenwood/Pogba/Mount/Jota - so plenty of talent available. Also included a playing 3rd striker in Dennis. So like it's possible but means no TAA basically. Personally won't go down that road unless Kane moves to City and Rom shows that he's essentially - while he scored today he only got 1 against a depleted Arsenal team.

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,328 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*

    I have 2 FT & 0.5 ITB

    I'm currently thinking Shaw out at the moment too, move to Dier and that's an extra 1.0 to play with.

    Maybe move Mahrez out for Son for the 2 nice Spurs fixtures but I might wait to see their European game first.

    Eventually will sacrifice Mahrez/Son or H. Barnes out for a 4.5 and then upgrade Toney to Lukaku. With enough in the bank to move to Kane if needs be.

    But then price changes over that time too....

    I'll deal with the Tsimikas / White / Veltman problem another time!

  • Registered Users Posts: 396 ✭✭RobTheLad

    Ings and Tsimikas out

    Lukaku and Tanganga in

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,615 ✭✭✭✭Muahahaha

    Im similar planning a Mahrez to Son move but read he was off the pace against Wolves today and he had a niggle in the warm up before the game. His next two fixtures are good though but I'll wait as long as possible in case theres any news.

    Had always planned not getting Lukaku in till GW7 when Chelseas fixtures have a massive swing and they face six bottom half of the table clubs in a row, he could do some serious damage during that run. But can see others getting him in now quick even though they face Liverpool, Villa, Spurs, City in the next four games. He is bound to have price rises between now and GW7 so might have to change the plan.

  • Registered Users Posts: 12,388 ✭✭✭✭siblers

    If you haven't sold him yet, Tsimikas is due to rise in the next day or two, you may as well wait to make an extra 0.1mil

  • Registered Users Posts: 15,328 ✭✭✭✭Fitz*

    Out of curiosity, is there a reason why why you are selling Ings when he has scored 2 in 2, getting bonus in both, before he plays a promoted side?

  • Registered Users Posts: 5,658 ✭✭✭dr.kenneth noisewater

    Cant see any way of getting Son or Lukaku in without selling TAA. Have 2FT so if Son is ok think I'll get him in for Barnes or Raphinia and then TAA to 4.5 Def. Tsismikas and Toney are also issues but struggling to see decent replacements for either atm

  • Registered Users Posts: 14,406 ✭✭✭✭callaway92

    Targett out

    Cresswell in - had to risk before potential drop tonight for Targett

  • Registered Users Posts: 21,099 ✭✭✭✭PARlance

    It's "well balanced" for attacking output alright 🤣

    The 5 players make it 55.9. Dennis and 2 keepers (8.5) leave you with 30.5 for the remaining 7 players.

    Two 4m players

    Five 4.5m players

    Certainly possible and interesting to have a look at it but but I think it's a step too far. You would also want to be acting relatively fast on it, as any 4 or 4.5s worth having will be jumping up in price over the next few GWs.

    Looking forward to this season as it looks like there'll be quite a few big decisions around formations and premium players.

    Defence: Tsimikas and 2 dud 4mil defenders (Manquillo & Obamdele)

    Midfield: Barnes & Mahrez

    Ive 2 FT’s.

    With Liverpool playing Chelsea next week I need to get a playing defender in (have TAA) - do I do a dud defender to Livramento now

    or do I ship out Mahrez, get Jota/Pogba/Greenwood & upgrade to a 5.5m defender?

    kind of want to give Mahrez til the IB and had in mind to stick with team.

    Using the 1 defender transfer I can bank 1 & keep 1 until after IB and then look at Chelsea assets!
