    Sterling - Maddison
    Pukki- Aguero

    I was on the Kane-Abraham - deadweight Greenwood route until this weekend, when I thought I'd try the triple mid price option.
    Wilson always for the longer haul, as away to Arsenal was always an ask, but Pukki had to do it this weekend, as they have some aways coming. I dare say I totally missed the bandwagon on him, so can bin him easily...

    Really like the earlier guy's team of
    Pope
    TAA - Soyuncu - Lundstram/Rico/Lowton
    Mane - De Bruyne - Maddison - Mount
    Wilson - Abraham - Aguero

    Scouted a quick wildcard out myself, and I could do the above, just with

    McGinn instead of Maddison
    Kelly & Dunk instead of Rico and Lowton.
    Chelsea young defender Tomori? Instead of Soyunco (not much in it)

    Fair enough.

    All teams that have:

    Ryan/Pope

    TAA

    Mane, KDB and Mount

    Abraham

    will perform well. Rest of the players that are selected will be the ones making the difference.

    Not at the moment. I might ultimately bring Mane or Salah in for him though and change Firmino to Vardy.

    Will recommend to keep Sterling for now. He can easily haul in the next game.

    Salah -> Mane is fair enough. Both seem to be equals now when it comes to scoring points.

    I am holding both Salah and Sterling. United - Liverpool will be a cagey match either way so don't see any reason to spend a transfer for this game.

    Yeah that's my main worry but, at the moment, my team is far too reliant on those two scoring big every week.

    Yeah I was thinking of switching Lowton to Fredericks but Gazzaniga is also very tempting at that price. They'll probably keep a clean sheet vs Watford but who knows how they'll look after that.

    Be careful with Kelly. He has an awful run coming up and may no longer be first choice once the good fixtures start up again.

    Is Douglas Luiz worth a punt? I'm on my wildcard and thinking of going from Cantwell to another. Why did Luiz miss a few games a few weeks ago, injured or dropped?

    Another shout is Guendouzi - £4.7m, starts every game and great run of games incoming

    Edit: Luiz's fixtures are very rough for the next 6 or so GWs

    —————-——-Patricio
    Otamendi - Tomori - Lundstram - Pereira
    -—-Mane - De Bruyne - Son - Martial
    ————Aubameyang - Abraham

    Bench: Kelly - Cantwell - Connolly.

    0.8 in the bank, possibly for Patricio to Alisson when Liverpool's fixtures turn good again.

    Son is a bit of a differential.

    Thoughts on this wildcard?

    Apart from Martial sure. We're terrible and he's still injured. I keep repeating this...

    I think he will be back after the International break? He had 2 goals and an assist in the first 3 games and will be the central striker.

    He's been "close" to a return for about 6 weeks now, so i'd certainly hold off until he's got through at least one game first.

    In theory he's a great bargain. In reality, we score no goals, are in a terrible run of form, and he's very prone to being out for substantial periods. 5 separate injuries last season.

    Saka starting for Arsenal at £4.5m. Could be the new Cantwell if you have no more pressing transfers.

    Will he keep his place though? And will he get any points!

    True. Emery is a bigger fraud than Guardiola. His team selections baffle me.

    Lacazette will be back after the International break, would expect Saka to drop to the bench but he could potentially be swapped with Pepe?

    I'm gutted I had transfers planned for the IB but thought i'd wait, and 3 of the players I wanted had a price rise last night!

    Abraham
    Mane
    Vardy

    Thoughts on these two transfers plans?
    Option 1
    Salah out, Mane in
    Pukki out, Tammy Abraham in
    -4
    the next week
    Haller out, Vardy in
    Zinchenko out, Rico in
    -4
    Option 2
    Salah out, Mahrez in
    Pukki out, Firmino in
    Haller out, Vardy in
    -8

    Option 1 seems more sensible.

    Because he’s cheaper and, i think, going forward will return a similar points return. Add to that Mount is in EVERYONES team so this could see you gain points where others drop a few. You could have them both but i thought it would free up some more money for you elsewhere.

    Well Pulisic won’t get much time in the league under Lamps and I think is ahead of Pedro. Only Willian standing in his way and i expect Lampard to put him on the other wing possibly to get Hudson in. The ONLY reason I haven’t brought him in myself is because i can only make one transfer and I can’t afford it unless i take a -4 hit, AND i have Mount and Abraham so having all three is Chelsea over-kill.

    Would you take Tammy aswell at the same time? That’s my only conundrum. Its tempting.

    I think I'll see if he continues to start. I've no problem going for 3 Chelsea attackers as they look like scoring bucketloads and I don't fancy any of their defenders. Also at £5.9m he's a great price and an easy switch for me from someone like Tielemans who's not doing much.

    Current set up is...

    Pope
    TAA - Ottamendi - Soyunco (Lundstram) (Kelly)
    Sterling - KDB - Mount - Tielemans (Cantwell)
    Kane - Abraham - Firmino

    Can easily see it becoming this in a few weeks...

    Pope
    TAA - Ottamendi - Soyunco (Lundstram) (Kelly)
    Mane - KDB - Mount - Hudson Odoi (Cantwell)
    Aguero - Abraham - Vardy

    I had Tammy but wanted Tomori as a defensive option so opted for Mount and Hudson Odoi instead iwch i think will do great over the whole season. Michy is doing well so they might share some game time soon.

    That last team looks good.

    My team: (looking ahead after the international break)

    Pope
    Otamendi - Tomori - AWB - (Rico) (Hanley)

    Mount - Son - Martial - KDB - (Hudson-Odoi)

    Aguero - Pukki - Aubameyang

    Almost took a -8 but convinced myself out of it

    Pukki > Connolly
    Guendouzi > Maddison

    Norwich have only scored 1 away goal all season, is that going to change to Bournemouth away ? I don't see how. And feel like I have to get a Leicester attacker in, they are scoring goals at home. But my friends/work league is really close and I don't want to take any hts... Guess I'll stick for now and hope Pukki scores.

    Ouch :lol:



    I bet there were a few like this with City and Spurs getting stuffed by Wolves and Brighton.

    To put into perspective how mental that week was the dream team this week which scored 136 points, scored a combined 16 the week before!

    You won't get many like that in a season (I hope).

    Wow, it took a couple of clicks to see what was happening there, thought the 20 points in his team was bad enough!
    But 41 on the bench!

    Makes my 32 and 17 not look as bad.

    Yeah and you can't even really say he picked the wrong players to bench (without the benefit of hindsight). I was annoyed with Martin Kelly's 7 pointer on mine.

    That's why I try to keep total drek on there if I can.

    That's it, you can't be too annoyed when you've made logical choices.

    I played Maguire, Van D and Lundstram.
    Maguire, as poor as United have been, away to a terrible attack - and should have scored - and could easily therefore have had a 15 pointer (as I believe we'd have then won 1-0)
    Liverpool's defence will start keeping cleanies soon, and you don't bench a 6.5m defender at home!
    Lundstram - got his clean sheet, and I've learnt from benching him (although I lucked out to get his 10+ pointer in once)


    Meanwhile, Kelly - Palace aren't clean sheet legends very often, and Dunk, has constantly let in often late goals, even at home, so playing Kane and Tottenham was no certainty!

    Errrmmm apart from a game here or there Palace under Hodgson are very good defensively. Van annholt had a great season last year and has continued that form into this season. He was a no brainer and I'm kicking myself for not backing him this time round.

    I am pretty happy with my team and still have my WC. Is there something really smart I can do with it in the first half of the season? How will the WC of clubs be for Liverpool fixture wise for instance?

    They miss the game vs West Ham in GW18 I believe. No idea when it'll be rescheduled.

    Still can't quite push the button on binning Salah and Sterling... will weigh it up some more though, but usually if i'm wildcarding I do it at the start of a week.

    Already seen Maguire and Pukki go down.

    Swapped Salah and Buendia for Mane and Mount. Got changes in early as worried for price changes.

    Current Squad

    Pope
    Tomori Mings Lundstrum
    Mane Sterling(C) Mahrez Cantwell Mount
    Aguero (V) Abraham


    Subs: Button Kelly Pieters Greenwood

    Bank: 1.4m

    Gunna get KDB in for Mahrez when he’s back. Eventually will change go a 4-3-3. Rid Aguero and Greenwood for Vardy/Firmino and a mid level striker. I feel you definitely need 3-4 Man City and Liverpool players. Over the season they will get you the most points and they’re fixture proof.

    Wesley in for Barnes for this week. Villa have some shite games though so he might not stay in long

    I like him though. Hasn't gone more than 2 weeks without a return. Like a cheaper Haller.

    your defence is too weak, you should spend more on it. I like your midfield and attack

    Mane went up the other day. That’s why I did it already. My plans wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

    I don’t disagree with the defence comment. But currently no one can keep clean sheets even the Big 2 so in the meantime may as well shift funds elsewhere. Eventually will get TAA in.

    No one considering Jimenez? Great run coming up and cheaper than Haller. I’m stuck between him and Vardy.

    So captain choices..

    KDB - could be a differential now? Risk he comes on late for a bit of fitness.
    Mane - we're shite. Could be a rout. Could also raise our game and it be a cagey affair.
    Aguero - Aguero.
    Tammy - Playing Newcastle.
    Wilson - only blanked in one game so far. Playing Norwich who concede plenty.
