Welcome to the 2017/18 Warriors Thread

Most of our team is back, which is great! Let's hope that Less Time = More Success biggrin.gif

Maybe we can emulate our NBA namesakes in 17/18, though it pains me to post the image below as I've always been a Lakers fan tongue.gif



Go Warriors! dwarf.gif fans.gif

Well, I'm clearly slow...because you said that you support Cleveland, when obviously you don't.

What you mean to say is that you support Lebron, which is cool, if a bit weird.

I think even you can understand that.

He got stuck with Fulham when Les retired there.

Cheers Shiru - glad to have you back thumbsup.gif

Personally, I'd never follow a player around. I have stayed loyal to the Lakers even after moving from LA to Seattle.... through thick & thin, during the "post-West/Wilt pre-Magic/Kareem" years, the "post-Magic/Kareem pre-Kobe/Shaq" years, and now during the current "all at sea" times. Admittedly, the Sonics being stolen away has made it a bit easier tongue.gif

I think it is saying something that Jerry West, Earvin and Kobe all stayed with the Lakers for their entire respective careers.

Newest member of Warriors checking in smile.gif. I will post my team later but it doesn't have lukaku. I'm not convinced on kaku unless utd start freescoring again. It's hard to imagine it will ever happen in an Jose team tongue.gif. Rolling with kun kane firmino front line. IF firmino is on pens, he's an bargain especially with Milner now back to been an CM.

Forster
Danilo Moreno Cedric
Carroll Zaha Salah KDB
Firmino Kun Kane ©

Subs - Elliot, Chalobah, Suttner and Mason

- Zaha can become Willian or Fabregas either. My big decision
- Tempted to triple up on Soton def and bring Bertrand in for Danilo. Worried with pep rotation wink.gif
- Moreno there for attacking threat, may still get rid. I don't see many cs unless van djik signs

Southampton have an unreal run of fixtures. I see them keeping the most clean sheets early on, well along with man utd tongue.gif Everyone will have 1 soton def. Having 2 or 3 will prove decisive in the rankings biggrin.gif .

Swansea are reported to be holding out for £50 million and Koeman said: "We are close, we have to wait. But still, the deal is not done.

"Everybody knows we are looking for three more players -- a left centre-back, a left full-back, a player who can play out of both positions, a winger and a striker.

"That's the picture, what the best is for our team, and we will see what we can do."

I know he finished well above me in the 16/17 FPL rankings, and I know from other threads/forums that he is valuable & enthusiastic contributor thumbsup.gif

With 9 players, the Arena lineup format has added an archer (3 total now) with those scores being counted 1/3 each toward the total team score (rather than 1/2 as in previous years).

My fpl team nearly set up. Just need to do a bit more research on who'll be starting Palace GK. So many conflicting reports. I might just play it safe with begovic/elliot rotation. Okay rotation early on smile.gif.
Foster and Elliot seem to be the template gk pair. Steering clear of wba defence smile.gif. Horrible form preseason

Posted by: ecvtan Aug 10 2017, 01:46 PM

Alli or Kane. Both scored similar last season but Alli cost 3 unit less! and i can have jesus in Kane place. current team

Forster

Cedric
Lindelof
Martina
Daniels

Zaha
Mane
Sane

Lukaku
Gabbi
Kane

Sub : Elliot, Caroll, Ritchie, Lascelle

Mane could be rotation risk. He's not back long and with UCL playoff coming up, will be rotation. Salah safer pick and my tip to be top lfc scorer unless firmino is on pens ( big chance). Even then Salah could possibly outscore biggrin.gif

Palace mid. He plays in front 3. It's an punt. He started last 2 preseason matches and with Sako injured, the spot is up for grabs. Palace fans reckon he'll start but they might also play Schlupp up there.....

Not a big fan of your side to be honest. Don't think it's a good idea to have 3 Southampton defenders (if you include the keeper). 2 is probably the max you want to go there. Alexander Arnold may play this weekend but more than likely he'll lose his place as soon as Clyne returns. Not sure Clyne is out for too long. Lokilo looks a risk to me, with other options to pick there.

Looking at your team again, I think you've got too much units on the bench. You're mad not to have Tom Carroll in there. He's 4.5 and is on set pieces now that Sigurdsson is off. Seeing as you don't have Foster, maybe go for one of the WBA defenders? Palace defenders (PVA, Dann) also rotate very nicely with Burnley ones (Mee).

Thanks SC. WBA has not exactly been keeping CS much last season. Dawson and Auley are the returning well. I suppose Dawson is the Def pick for WBA? Auley is injured and Begazi is not guarantee starter?

Remember the deadline is in under 3 hours. Arsenal play tonight.

McAuley is out for at least 2 weeks and is 38 years old. Not sure he'll be a consistent starter this season. I've got Hegazi, think he'll be a starter this season. He does have an element of risk though. Dawson is probably the safest at 5.

Bellerin isn't even sure of starting. I think it's essential to get a Liverpool rep. I'd get a 4 unit defender in as a 4 man rotation in defence is fine. Maybe downgrade Bellerin down to a 5 unit DEF and do Rodriguez to Firmino?

Im using this fantasy football fix website tool which crunches numbers on players and tells you which players are ideal.
its a bit janky, there's two sections preseason and regular, but you kind of need both.

Its pay to use and ive paid for a season so if you need any numbers crunched I can do that.

Also has a key players section which can suggest which players will do well over the next few games.


Although it did suggest highly I pick fabregas so it's clearly bollax.

Anyway 38 points with spurs Davies, Erickson and Kane to go. (including fabrgas' minus 1)

Zaha is a really bad buy @7 units



Tadic @6.5 - 23 points
Mkh @8.1 - 27 points
Fabregas (after suspension) @7 - 26 points

Have much better projected points [over the next six games].

Even lower priced

Pugh @5 - 20 points
Xhaka @5.6 - 21 points
Hendo @5.5 - 20 points
Milivojevic (same team) @5 - 18 points

Have better points projections.

As a comparison point the top midfielders [@9+ units] Salah, Mane, Erickson and Debruyne have point projections in the 30s.

Stats aside personally speaking Zaha is an abysmal footballer, playing for an abysmal club, who has never done any real numbers for me when I stuck him in my team so there's that.

1. Zaha is out injured for the next 4 weeks. That's why his projection is lower than those players.

2. Zaha is an abysmal footballer? He was brilliant last season, in real life and in fantasy.

Salah @9.1 and Mane @9.5 are both pretty much the top two rated midfielders at the moment [both set to get around 31 points over the next 6 gw]. If you dont have one then get the other.

Next to them are Erickson@9.5 and De Bruyne@10 both at around 30 points.

Below that price range between 8.5 and 6.5 you have Fabregas, Mkh, Tadic and Mahrez. All projected to be 26 (fab,mkh mahrez) and 23 (tadic).

So the drop between the best premium mid (Salah) and the best mid range mid (Mkh) is 5 points over the next 6 gw at the cost of 1 unit.

Liverpool mids have tons of points potential playing Palace at home and Ars at home then hit a rough spot in City away before resuming the gravy train in leicester and newcastle.

United have decent match ups for the next 6.

So yeah if you can't afford Mane then Salah is just as good.

Also 8.5 for Firminio is a steal. He's the best mid price striker by far. As a comparison premium Lacazette @10.5 is projected for 27 and Firminio is projected 26. (Aguero @11.5 is projected for 41 compared to Kane's 35 @12.5 so get Kun too if you can).

Posted by: Shirubagan Aug 16 2017, 08:27 PM

@Spurs

Yeah you have to make a judgement call on the stats yourself. It's crunching offical opta stats (why its a paid service), last season, preseason, championship, of not just the player but the all the players around him (pass completion, chance creation, xG etc) and judging the quality of the upcoming teams he is playing using the same criteria (including head to heads) so the numbers are pretty solid but the unknowns are still there to be found.

What they may also miss are things like Lukaku. He's low rated but I don't know if thats based on his low minutes to goals last season and there's a judgement gap on his move to United and his potential there or if there is no gap and he's just not projected very good over the next 6 gw compared to the other top premium strikers in his price bracket (Aguero (same price!), Kane, Jesus, Lacazette).

Also it rates King fairly well (in the lower end of the top 4 of the mid price strikers) but I don't know if thats cause of his last season numbers and not taking into account his position move or because of the dirth of strikers in the 8.5 to 6.5 price range (the next best striker next to King at that price point is benteke for example).

So anyway the resource is there why not use it together with everything else we know?
Personally, my thoughts are that I've never failed a test because I had too much information lol.

@Spurs

Yeah you have to make a judgement call on the stats yourself. It's crunching offical opta stats (why its a paid service), last season, preseason, championship, of not just the player but the all the players around him and judging the quality of the upcoming teams he is playing using the same criteria so the numbers are pretty solid but the uinknowns are still there to be found.

What they may also miss are things like Lukaku. He's low rated but I don't know if thats based on his low minutes to goals last season and there's a judgement gap on his move to United and his potential there or if there is no gap and he's just not projected very good over the next 6 gw compared to the other top premium strikers in his price bracket (Aguero (same price!), Kane, Jesus, Lacazette).

Fair enough. I did see you hinting that you'd picked Fabregas on the back of the feature though.

I've always been against using detailed stats when using my team. I much prefer watching as many games as I can and picking players I like the look of. That way, the decisions are my own and it means I don't have the same regrets as if I was swayed by a prediction tool.

I just don't see how the prediction tool can be even remotely accurate at all. If it uses results from last season, then most teams are very different now. If it uses Championship data then it's going to massively over-inflate Championship players. If it uses pre-season, then I've always thought pre-season is almost entirely pointless. It's essentially an exercise to get players fit for the season. Some teams play a load of lower league sides and win 6-0 every game and other teams (like Spurs for example) played PSG, Juventus, Man City and Roma in theirs. I don't see how the tool will take that into account. I'm betting the tool might become handy late on in the season but I certainly wouldn't look at it much for a bit.

Firmino or Salah great picks. Firmino on pens is an big factor. It depends how you want to use the funds. I'm expecting both to get close to 20 league goals. Firmino on pens is massive and liverpool get plenty cool.gif

Trent Alexander Arnold another one to watch, can play an number of positions in team. Can't see Clyne taking his spot. On corners and some set pieces wink.gif .

Cheers SP - I'd prefer to transfer in Firmino, but in the interest of getting rid of Zaha this week without taking too many hits, Salah is an easier replacement than Bobby. I'm gonna go back and tool around a bit more though.

Regarding TAA, I selected both him and Moreno in one of my Fantrax salary cap leagues because they were both uber cheap (i.e., 1.00 units ohmy.gif ) .... they got me 6.0 & 9.0 points, respectively thumbsup.gif

TAA

running with this. not ideal but dont want to dump fabregas as thatll take major surgery to correct (and involves trying to wedge in mkh and lukaku somewhere).
Should be good for around 54-60 points though. (i like my nacho striker pick vs brighton)

OK Warriors, I followed SC's lead and switched out Alonso for TAA, which then allowed me to switch out Zaha for Salah:

Foster (Elliot)
Bellerin TAA Stephens Daniels (Mee)
Salah© JWP KDB Willian (TCarroll)
Lukaku(v) Kane (JRod)

-8
0.4 ITB

My kneejerk switch was the benchwarming Iwobi out for JWP, which I did before the Iwobi price drop and also before news of Zaha's injury rolleyes.gif

2 questions for the team:


I'll bite the bullet this week to save my WC and that new 'free hit' chip, which seems best suited for a DGW. Definitely horseman or bench for me this week.

Strong defence for this week but think liverpool will concede. Palace are liverpool's bogey side sad.gif . I would play Mee over TAA.
Salah could be taken off early with crucial UCL tie midweek but he gets in alot of good positions. I see liverpool scoring 2/3 goals. He should be in the mix. Lukaku is safe captain choice but utd have struggled at swansea in the past few seasons.. I'm on Kane cap myself but I'll be in the miniority smile.gif

Thanks for the feedback - good point about Salah's minutes being in question. Maybe I'll sheep it with Luk©. However there's also Kane at home vs a CHE side without Cahill, Fabgas & Haz, having conceded 3 @SB to Burnley in week1. Then again, Kane has started the season off slow the past 2 years.... thinking.gif

I echo your thoughts. Frustrating gameweek but I would rather score low this gameweek tongue.gif. Unpredictable start to season unless you had 2/3 utd players. I'm still bitter about the pogba red card challenge that could have been. Many ups and downs in fpl, gotta roll with them. Once Kane gets going, my season will be back on track. Kane has had 14 shots in last gameweek. 2 captaincy blanks so far. Let's hope harry kane doesn't make it an hatty angry.gif . Annoying KDB was playing so deep and Silva so forward rolleyes.gif.

Cheers SP! KDB for Eriksen looks good. Perhaps I'll keep Salah, as I have no other LIV reps. Though to go with the "hot hand" I could also switch Mo out for Pog or Mkhi for a -4 (contrary to what I stated in my last post --me rear is recovering quicker than expected biggrin.gif ).

Soton have unreal fixtures up to like gameweek 11. I kinda regret going with Forster over Foster now but it's early days. I didn't expect wba to be so good defensively. ( only kept 6cs last year and were awful defensively preseason). Having 3 soton at back is wolf move. Hope it pays off and Pellegrino is an defensive coach tongue.gif

I wouldn't personally unless your chasing team value. Salah will get many chances. Liverpool vs Arsenal in recent years has been high scoring. Firmino for instance has scored 5 goals in 4 appearances cool.gif . I'm not sold on Pogba yet as an FPL asset but he's looking good value but then again it was vs west ham and swansea who imploded at the back in last 20 mins.

i went from kdb to mkhi instead of pogba, cuz i think mkhi is more consistent. given that you've went with eriksen (which is a good pick imo), i wouldn't take a hit for pogba... like SP says, he'll get plenty of chances vs arsenal.

I wanted cedric originally but he was a doubt for gameweek 1. Interesting soton played 3 at back in Cup. I plan on getting Cedric soon but not worth an hit . I see Forster made another error last night sad.gif . Yoshida played quite well going by saints forum while Stephens got mixed reviews

Pep "Kevin De Bruyne understands the game. Not all players do. De Bruyne can play all positions, but I expect him to spend most of his time at defensive midfield" LOL. Glad i sold this week. Good riddance

In other news, missed an trick not owning an wba defender. Anyway I'll have one in for gw4. They have kept 2 cs already. Annoying as they kept an total of 6cs last season.
The way things are looking, I should have doubled up on wba def wink.gif. Ah well biggrin.gif

I'm not the captain but if I was, I'd have to go to your team page to work out what transfers you were making and why you were taking a hit. Maybe you could include in the post what transfers you're making because then we/BP could comment on whether we think the hit is worth it?

i already took the hit, so its done. i actually mentioned it in an http://www.starting11.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=34631&view=findpost&p=731383. i went from kdb + carroll to mkhi + mooy. i probably should have offloaded RLC had i knew that he had an injury... oh well.

Well we have very similar sides now. My Firmino, Mkhi and Hegazi vs your Rodriguez, Pogba and Bellerin.

If you want to play your captain pick safe, go Eriksen. If you want to shoot for the stars, go with Kane.

That's why I went for Pog instead of Mkhi - wanted to have at least a little variation from your team. Gotta say that your Firmino/Hegazi trumps my JRod/Bellend in every respect so far. agree.gif

Posted by: Shirubagan Aug 26 2017, 02:54 AM



Going with this

To get rid of Ianacheo for Cheech I had to sacrifice Erickson and put in Pogba. The obvious choice would be MKh instead (similar projected points total to Erickson but nearly 1.5 units cheaper) but went with Pogba cause of Mkh's rotation risk as a long term pick.

Took a -4 hit but should make that back.

Need to take another -4 hit next week too get rid of fabregas and ritchie or make Cheech into Vokes (avoiding Vokes gw3 spurs match up) and turn Ritchie into Mkh.

So although my points look good they are actually ephemeral

I wouldn't use me to lead a charge for the next few gws im afraid lads.

i think it might Dex's team. Either that or SC's?

Dex has a good defense (WBA + Alonso) and he's also got most of the bases covered with Spurs (Kane captain and Eriksen), ManU (Lukaku, though it might be better if he also have either Pogba or Mkhi) and Liverpool (Firmino). He's got some decent set piece takers with Willian, Mooy and also Phillips.

SC's team is good too, but a tad weak on the defense with TAA and Stephens. He does have Mee as a backup to TAA though.

Both teams with no hits, just make one the Legatus and the other one an Archer. Pick 2 more archers (yourself and Snipes) and we're done. thumbsup.gif

With mkh at 8.2 I think he can do similar numbers to Erikson for less.
Same with pogba but pogba has less risk of being rotated or subbed.

Its easier for me to swallow if you look at it as bringing in Cheech. One goal from him vs Newcastle will more than make up the hit. Plus he's more likely to score than ianacho who can't get a look in at Leicester.

Of course the smart thing to do was to wait for the international break and play the wildcard but maaaaaan these prices are rising!

Prefer Lowe(potential pens) to Schlindler. Hegazi could lose his spot if Wba sign an cb plus McAuley returns gw4. Solid front 8 but one glaring omission is Kane. As long as you have plan to get Kane, it's worth the risk going without for now smile.gif. Kane has had 24 shots in last 3 gameweeks though. Only a matter of time before he hauls regularly . I'm not a fan of Mkhitaryan. Pogba safer pick and looks to be more involved in final third wink.gif .
Pedro @7.9m worth considering plus the 2 budget 6m+ mids in Jese and Richarlison.

On price rises -


Mooy, Firmino, Mkhitaryan, Morata went up
Morata and Firmino might double rise, doubt Mooy and Mkhitaryan will

My problem is I'm not sure which transfer(s) need to be made this week. I can't do Willian to Salah in a straight swap and with Salah @City, it's probably not worth taking a hit for that one. Taking Stephens out this week might be a bit quick because we're not sure what's going on at Saints. With Clyne now out for a while, it might be too soon to drop TAA as he might get a run in the side now? JWP is the logical choice but I can't see a 4.5-5.0 mid that I'd start over Carroll anyway so I might as well bank the transfer till next week to give more flexibility. Thoughts?

Little worried that all 3 of Stephens, Hegazi and TAA are starting doubts to be honest. I'm going to need 2 of them to start really. I might therefore make a defender transfer this week to cover myself. The only issue is I have no idea which one to take out. I could potentially do my non-playing defender (Long) to Naughton but quite like having a 4.0 defender to have more money to spend elsewhere. Thoughts?

Ha, been too busy to follow the news the past couple of weeks but I did have a dream last night in which Phil got injured again... however he's the cheapest way into the ManU starting DEF at the mo.

I could potentially do my non-playing defender (Long) to Naughton but quite like having a 4.0 defender to have more money to spend elsewhere. Thoughts?

Other than use your WC, I would agree that Long arrow.gif Naughton is a good way to go.

Absolutely no need to use the WC. I genuinely don't want to change any of my forwards and only 2 of my 5 midfielders (which can wait till next week). Defence needs a tweak but nothing major.

I always like having a 4.0 defender, but I'm going to end up with two 4.5 midfielders with the squad I'm looking at so it would probably be good to have 5 defenders I can use if I want to go for a 4-3-3 formation some weeks. I'll mull it over.

Yeah, was only joking about using your WC - I am using mine because I felt my entire team was a mess.

Having looked at the options I've got, I've decided not to do Long to Naughton. It makes it impossible to do Willian to Salah next week and then be able to afford a decent defender if I downgraded Stephens or Hegazi for a -4. That means I need to change Hegazi or Stephens this week really. I think both will be out of my team in the next few weeks but I'm trying to work out who could be taken out first. I think Hegazi could be dropped this week for Evans. Hegazi was away with Egypt whilst Nyom wasn't away. I'm guessing Nyom will play RB with Evans and Dawson at CB. With Stephens, I don't think VVD will play this weekend, and both Yoshida and Hoedt have been on international day. Yoshida has travelled around the world as well, so I'd imagine Stephens will at least get this game. If I do this, next week I'd probably then do Willian to Salah and either JWP to a 4.5-5.0 mid or Stephens to a 4.5-5.0 defender for a -4. If I'm going to take a -4 either this week or next week, it seems more logical this week because I'd rather have Salah than Willian this week, right?

My score was so low last week. I'm extremely frustrated..

Current team. -4. Took Kane and Willian out for Firmino and Salah. See 'Pool starts to tank now laugh.gif

In the coming few weeks I'll start selling KDB and PVA at least for Erikssen/Ali and a Utd defender if possible.

One question - do I start Carroll? If yes, with whom to be replaced?

Posted by: Ice66 Sep 9 2017, 04:10 AM

Final team:

Foster
Kolas Naughton Cedric
Eriksen Mooy Salah Mkhi
Kaku Kane Mounie

Elliot; RLC Rangel Daniels
0.2 ITB
-4 hit

Decided not to go with Mee given that Swansea has a slightly better fixture.

Got Willian being benched right.

Got Hegazi being benched wrong, although I'd double down on that bet for next week after today's performance.

Got Stephens playing right, but I doubt he'll start next weekend.

Rather have Salah than Willian? Wrong rolleyes.gif

Need to hope Naughton does well tomorrow to make the transfers worth it.

45pts with 4 left. Kane © and Eriksen with the majority of points. Ben Davies coming in next gameweek for an soton defender

Posted by: Shirubagan Sep 10 2017, 01:01 AM

Hmm bonus points took me to 52.

Seasons going alriiiiiight.

I still believe pogba's > mkh and keeping faith in Kun and Kane is finally paying dividends.
Dodged the hegazi mine for now might have to sell him but it depends on who is around at his price range (not willing to pay for premium defenders when a 5 unit defender matched up with a few good bench players who can cover bad matchups give me the same points.)

Was going to wildcard this week but can save it for later as I've got 2 transfers for next week. Mane for Salah for one. Maybe Hegazi for Tuanzabe (3.9 filler) to free up more units for a painless lukaku upgrade on cheech the following week?

Anyway hopefully cheech does the business monday and Richie and Fen keep their mess together.

Not sure how we've done this week but one thing we need to do more is talk in here about what we're planning on doing before we do it. I'm seeing too many people posting their teams at the end of the week, stating the transfers they've already made. I often post in here before I make my changes and the opinions of you guys often helps me make the right decision. This thread should be a RMT thread during the week rather than just posting our final squad on the Friday/Saturday.

True, but the thing is I do actually do my squad late Friday night.
And most of my information for my team choices are not from S11 but increasingly from stats sites and twitter.
So now the process for making those changes has grown considerably to where it's no longer efficient to rely solely on judgements made on my RMTs for my changes.
That's not to say S11 is useless to me. It's the opposite; S11 is driving the need to get as much info as I can.

Saying that. Right now I do need to think about making changes to my squad.



As you can see the next three fixtures for some of my players are looking a bit rough.

I can fix some of those problems through smart subs and using my 1.2units in the bank and 2 free transfers:

Going from:



projected points: 44

to this:



projected points: 53

Which I'll more than likely use for next week.
Depending on how Cheech does for me tonight.

I can also drop hagazi for tuenzebe and -4 to swap cheech for Firminio. but I dont think that's smart because:



Looking at that subs chart I have long term underlying problems.
Loftus Cheek is a permanent sub.
Chicharito is undroppable.

Both these things mean I can never play the best formation (3-5-2)

This is what I'll be using my wildcard to fix in the next few weeks. I'd rather have a dead striker or defender than a midfielder.

Been a very rough start to the season for me. My wildcard team didn't fare too well this week, in part due to not retaining Kane....so I'm considering bringing him back in this week, but would have to take a hit unless I sell Lukaku for him. Here's my current team:

Foster Elliot
Jones Lowe Cedric Naughton Rangel
Eriksen Salah Mkhitaryan Mooy Carroll
Lukaku Morata Firmino
1.4 ITB
1FT

My first inclination is to sell Morata and Firmino for Kane & Chicharito. However, Salah seems to be rotated/subbed out a lot and I don't feel thatl Mkhi is "essential" - so I could drop one of those guys instead of Firmino (which is what I'd prefer). The problem is that I don't see a mid 8.0 or below to bring in who strikes my fancy. Any suggestions as to what I might do?

I see value in Chupo Moting and Gross. Brighton and Stoke have fairly good fixtures coming up wink.gif. I would do lukaku and salah/mkhi out. I don't buy this coverage thing. You can't have everyone tongue.gif .

Next gameweek

Forster
Yoshida Davies Dann
Salah Mooy Eriksen Carroll
Kane Lukaku Firmino

I had to jump on the stephens >davies move early to grab the price rise. My tv is 100.2 rolleyes.gif but it's early days biggrin.gif. My next few transfers will be sorting out the defence.

61 points.

Strangely downbeat about that. Hoping for cheech to go bigger than 2 bloomin' points.

Decent week in the end then lads! Well done.

My original plan for this week was to go Stephens to Jones but after seeing how well Davies played, I think I'm going to go with him instead. That'll involve a hit but it's to set my side up nicely moving forward so I don't mind that. The second change will be to downgrade JWP (what a waste of space) to probably RLC. That would leave me with:

Lukaku
Kane ©
Firmino

Salah
Eriksen
Mkhi
RLC

TAA
Davies
Mee

Foster

Subs: Elliot, Naughton, Carroll, Long

-4

Thanks for the feedback, SP. If I sell Lukaku for Kane, I wouldn't need to do another transfer. But what I'll probably end up doing is Morata out for Kane, and to fund that it would be either Salah out for Ramsey or Mooy out for RLC for a -4. If I were to do the latter however, I'd have the exact same front 8 as Spurs Crew ohmy.gif ...which would probably be a good thing biggrin.gif

Man of the match tonight wink.gif

Posted by: Shirubagan Sep 14 2017, 12:42 PM



Looking at this now that pogba is out for what looks like a month.

Changed Mane to Ericksson and Pogba to Salah
Subbed Fernandez (facing three of my spurs players) for Lowe facing Leicester. Not ideal as I think there are goals in that game. Then subbed Foster (vs my Cheech) for Elliot.

No hits. 0.1 units in the bank.
Should really have Lukaku in for a relatively hit and miss Aguero.
Rom's missing sitters week in week out inches away from a huge score and with Pogba no longer occupying his spaces in the box I expect him to bag a couple vs his old team.

To do that move I'd have to take a -4 hit plus lose Ericksson for Ali (Ali this season is not last years Ali) to get the funds I need.

Thoughts?

Good moves Shiru thumbsup.gif Lukaku more expensive than Kun? ohmy.gif ...wow, the times they are a changin'

Like SC stated earlier I think, not sure if it's a great idea to drop Eriksen for a hit. I'd rather have Kun & Eriksen than Luk & Alli -4.

Posted by: Shirubagan Sep 14 2017, 05:52 PM

Thanks bp.

Haven't made the moves yet so the hit for the changes to get aguero to lukaku is still -4.
I'll more than likely make the pogba change tonight as it looks like his price will drop soon and may leave me short.
