    Salah v bre

    Hit return prematurely on the first poll.

    Can't see beyond these three options. I'm going Salah, I don't think Brentford have been tested yet.

    Villa moved to a five at the back to counteract Evertons crossing game, I think they'll stick with that for the weekend, although they are without Tuanzebe. United had there most crosses yet this season v West Ham.

    Antonio v lee

    Havent voted as Im still on the fence as whether to go Salah or Antonio. AFAIK Brentford play 5 at the back so this sounds like one of those games where they will pack the defense using a low block, the type of scenario Liverpool struggled to break down at times last season. Brentford have kept 4 clean sheets in 5 games so there must be something about them at the back. Salah can score against anyone of course but Im not expecting a goal fest in that fixture.

    Antonio still a risky option but you know the Leeds game will be open flowing football. That combined with the Leeds defence being in a mess is attractive. Struijk is suspended, Cooper injured and Ayling was moved from right back to centre back and is now an injury doubt himself.

    Is there any risk that Salah will be rotated?

    Ronaldo v AVL

    Almost zilch, huge game for Liverpool against a tough team, Salah on fire lately, was rested midweek.

    It's a really tough call this week. Brentford have surprisingly good defensive numbers, both real and underlying. I feel like I probably have to captain Ronaldo here, especially as I have only him from United and 3 Liverpool players.

    Ronaldo v AVL

    Very tempted to triple Ronnie i need to make ground



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,124 ✭✭✭ The real mccoy 91


    Don't have Ronaldo.. not convinced on Salah this week don't see Brentford giving up a bucket load of goals. I'm feeling Antonio but Benny is looking at me as a fun punt.. not the time for punts like though is it? Gonna be one of the hammers either way

    Ronaldo v AVL

    have it on Ronaldo at the moment, but i hate the early kick offs and so do most players.


    Might change it later to Salah as a 5.30 kO on sky, he could do serious damage

    Antonio v Leeds Reserves?

    Does H/A matter for captaincy this season again? West Ham being away to Leeds is putting me off captaining Antonio again this week.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,102 ✭✭✭ Dearg81


    Antonio v lee

    I'm thinking the same. West Ham impressed me on the counter attack against United and Leeds defence will be weak.



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,712 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Salah v bre

    I've switched to Antonio



  • Registered Users Posts: 10,712 ✭✭✭✭ Green&Red


    Salah v bre

    @Fitz* 59% of goals scored by the home team


    Still leaves 41%

    Ronaldo v AVL

    You've all season to make ground.

    Antonio v lee

    Most of the time I'd prefer a player at home but the Leeds defence were awful at home against Everton and Liverpool shipping 5 goals so I wouldn't let that stop me. I do think that teams have kinda figured out how to play Leeds now in their 2nd season.



  • Registered Users Posts: 19,126 ✭✭✭✭ Muahahaha


    Antonio v lee

    Ive put it on Antonio, even though he is playing away Im thinking of the four goals WH scored away to Newcastle and feel they will be just as attacking against that diminished Leeds defence. It looks like it has the ingredients for a very open game with lots of chances. I have Salah and Ronnie too so if Antonio doesnt haul at least their returns will mitigate the choice somewhat.

    Salah v bre

    Voted Salah but think I'm going to go with Ronnie.

    Ronaldo v AVL

    Ronaldo. Don’t own Antonio any more and will be watching him from behind the couch as Leeds are in bad shape

    Ronaldo v AVL

    Went Ronaldo based on home advantage. Hope it's not an early morning blank.

    Would have changed captaincy to Ronaldo if I didnt miss the deadline, stuck on Salah. Happy so far with the mistake!
