GW3 Transfer thread

    Ha here's more balanced team then - and give you rotating keepers, Guaita/ESR could be downgraded to get extra 1m if needed,

    Sanchez, Guaita

    White, Alying, Dier, Coady, Duffy

    Bruno, Salah, Dallas, ESR, Gilmour

    Kane, Lukaku, Dennis

    But yea this season should be interesting, but could be equally frustrating to be on the wrong side of a 50/50.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,387 ✭✭✭✭Green&Red

    In exactly the same situation

    thinking Targett-> Liver

    and see how the rest pans out

  • Registered Users Posts: 232 ✭✭Trey13

    Ended up doing Amartey and Brownhill to Livramento and Bissouma. Had 2FT and happy with my team. I know Amartey will rise but I think he will lose his place in the team. Livramento seems to have displaced Walker-Peters. Going with Bissouma as my 4.5 mid now. Happy to get that sorted.

    Hmm, maybe I'll hold fire for now, he didn't seem himself and was subbed earlier than I would have expected

    I could just transfer Tsimi out and hold the extra transfer I have banked in case the international break throws up anything

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

    if your other defenders are playing I’d hold Tsimikas.

    Like he can always become the 5th dud defender as he is cheapest defender but I think we will see him play more games especially with CL & Christmas coming up. Keep him in

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

    Vestergaard injured. Amartey might get a longer stint!

  • Registered Users Posts: 37,719 ✭✭✭✭eagle eye

    Why would Klopp rush to start Robertson after how well Tsimikas played the weekend? I don't think there's a rush to get rid of him. Likely to rise again this week and then get rid after next week if he doesn't start with a .1 profit.

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,701 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    Brentford have two CS in a row...

    I personally wouldn't be get rid of Ings if i had him. I feel that some people would prefer to have the Big Rom for FOMO, regardless of his price, or returns of other players etc.

    White out for Reguillion for the week, will most likely play wild card next week after international break then

  • Registered Users Posts: 97 ✭✭HenrysLeftHand

    That's true. I'm thinking with my wildcard for game week 4 hat on.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,378 ✭✭✭Shedite27

    Treating myself to a -4 mini-wildcard to clear out my BB.

    Out: Trossard, Benteke, Torres

    In: Pogba, Calvert-Lewin, Brownhill

    Leaves me with


    TAA Shaw Stones (Digne / Tsimikas)

    Salah Pogba Greenwood Barnes (Brownhill)

    DCL Ings Antonio

    Happy with the start to the season, hoping this will tie me over another few weeks before a WC in wee 7 or 8.

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

    I think there's a decent chance Tsimikas starts against Chelsea, I wouldn't be putting money on it but the fact that Robertson didn't get 20-30mins the last day is a big factor imo.

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

    I think it is going to be Wednesday or Thursday before the UK government provides clarity on their updated red list of countries that require quarantine. A lot on Twitter are saying they will make an exemption for the PL but a few weeks ago the Lions rugby team asked for one and didnt get it. They came back from South Africa and had to quarantine for 10 days in a hotel in Jersey before they could go to their homes. If the government allow PL footballers an exemption the blazers in Twickenham will go mad

    Here is the potential problems for GW4 after the international break, every country in south America is currently on the red list

    • Liverpool: Firmino, Alisson, Fabinho, Salah.
    • Leicester: Soyuncu, Amartey, Ndidi, Iheanacho.
    • Arsenal: Elneny, Martinelli, Partey, Pepe.
    • Manchester United: Fred, Cavani, Diallo, Bailly.
    • Spurs: Sanchez, Romero, Lo Celso, Aurier.
    • Manchester City: Ederson, Jesus.
    • Chelsea: Silva.
    • Leeds: Raphina
    • West Ham: Antonio (if called up for Jamaica, expected though)

    I think its worth waiting to do transfers until this is cleared up on Wednesday or Thursday. If no exemption is given Im looking at Salah, Antonio and Raphina all missing for GW4.

    Suddenly holding Salah v Chelsea when he might be out v Leeds in GW4 anyway doesnt look attractive. Chelseas defence is decent so Salah could be a return of 2 points for two GWs and Bruno (c) v Wolves seems the better option anyway. If Salah has to quarantine for 10 days then selling him for 2 GWs before buying him back GW7 v Palace might be a good move, there has to be options who will out score him over those two GWs.

    That's a very well balanced team, but I'm looking at it thinking I'd rather get Lukaku in for one of those 3 and go for a few downgrades elsewhere.

    You've no Bruno either of course. Might very well be a good strategy to spread the money around.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,205 ✭✭✭Lucas Hood

  • Registered Users Posts: 32,985 ✭✭✭✭CSF

    I think the fact that its Chelsea they're playing means Robertson will be back if at all possible.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,211 ✭✭✭✭Father Hernandez

    Williams (4.0) joins Norwich.

    Farke says he should be available to play against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup.

    Current starting LB Giannoulis was hauled off at HT v Man City so there is a chance to might come in and be a starter. Imagine United have agreed if he will be playing on an ongoing basis too.

    Could be a grand cheap, starting enabler.

  • Registered Users Posts: 19,701 ✭✭✭✭Ace2007

    Yea hopefully - i would have thought thought that Tuanzebe would be getting regularly game time when he went on loan - but it's unlikely with the villa defence, so no guarantees that Williams will be walking straight into the team. He's still young and inexperienced, but would be great if he did start - even picking up 1/2 points a game - is all you want for that price. He's not Shane Duffy 😂

    I see Liverpool are refusing to release Salah…..other clubs will follow that stance I would imagine.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,203 ✭✭✭Shanee.

    Veltman -> Livramento

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,570 ✭✭✭Dr. Bre

    Anyone for iheanacho? Perez sent off tonight

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,304 ✭✭✭✭Mr.Prodston

    It would probably make sense to sell Barnes for Benrahma quickly... but Harvey does play Norwich next?

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

    I'm making that move myself - after the last 2 matches Rogers may change it up with Nacho or Daka and I'm a little worried Barnes may not even start

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,211 ✭✭✭✭Father Hernandez

    2 free transfers

    Toney and Shaw out

    Antonio and Amartey/Duffy/4.0 in

    The plan was always to WC after GW3.

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

    Could you afford the extra 0.5 for Dier over the 4.0 for a 2 week spell?

    Or is the 4.0 going to be gone in the WC anyways, and a one week job?

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

    Buendia > Benrahma looks to be a no brainer anyway.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,211 ✭✭✭✭Father Hernandez

    4.4 is all I have I'm afraid.

    Already have Tsimikias and Livramento so another 4.0 is risky but should most likely be a 1 week job.

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

    I think if it's a one week job, Amartey is your man as he should start.

    There's a slight chance that Veltman is back for next game and takes Duffy's place. Albeit very slight.
