The Fantasy Lord giveth and the Fantasy Lord taketh away.

The 101 of gw23 seems a long time ago. My failure to fix the roof while the sun shone by not paying the Sterling Insurance Premium has proved so costly, all the good work undone. Season wrecker? To rise 90% with 13 weeks left to 50k respectability seems far fetched but with all chips remaining and not a bad 'core' squad and value I would hope it's not impossible.
So what has to be done? Sterling has to come in, that there is no doubt. Still cheap, easy to bring in, maybe there's even an opportunity to restructure the defence to allow the improving Daniels & Naughton opportunities as their fixtures improve?
Lingard's blanks are now stacking-up at an alarming rate, yes he's the worst, the cheapest, good fixtures but I think he must go.
Azpi has been fine but he blocks Daniels & Naughton.

Lingard & Azpi > Sterling & Dummett for a hit is on but I must act fast. Worth it or look to another way?

Yeah, think I must get Sterling 1st though, then maybe Theo next week for Bernardo?

Cash-in the profits? Maybe, but I'm guessing Ota is the number 1 atm with Kompany, Laporte & Stones all vying for that 2nd spot so it's risky, only do so if your bench is strong.

Yeah something tells me he won't want to score against Wengers mob and the fans, reckon he'll keep it low key for this match with possibly an assist, can't see him wanting to bang many shots in for fear of one gaping the net

Shouldn't have moved that early for Mhki and Bilva.
Whilst it was good that a few 7.x came along, you didn't expect Theo to come too.
He looks the best of the lot now, and is the cheapest.

Then of course there might be Kenedy. 8 pts would have been more if Joselu wasn't such a muppet.
I don't think he's fully fit either. Have we finally found a nice, reliable 4.7 to have on the bench, just in case?

Lingard (if he fails again) to Kenedy would allow Quaner to Wilson.
Wilson probably safer than Lingard now that CL starts up again, and better, given fixtures, playing further forward (and PKs?).
Kenedy also seems like a sure starter, unlike Quaner. Might even play for a better team.
Then there's some change left over too. Only 0.2, but precious for everyone (and especially you it seems).

Sterling, like Salah, seems a must in every team. Shall I give you a headache with Son?
After this week, he's home in a NLD. Usually lots of goals in that, and he has good form at home.
After that, fixtures get easy for Spurs, and I think he's one of the best value of 5 MIDs to have.

You're right about Azpi, but even though the fixtures are good for Naughton and Daniels, do you want to play roulette with them? LEI fixtures get good too, so maybe Maguire is the way to go to free up units.

With Palace coming into tough games, I think you need to get yourself a GK. I assume you have Pickford in mind?

at 5.5 Maguire seems overpriced. Simpson looks like he might be back soon but not really, personally, I'm looking at Drago @4.9

Was kind of hoping I'd be priced out of Azpi/Lingard>Dummett/Sterling but Sterling didn't rise! laugh.gif
Really hate making that move but I think I have to. Thing about Daniels is I've held so long and at last it looks like they might be able to keep a cleanie or 2, and he is due a goal so I'd be so gutted if he got 15 at B1, there wouldn't be enough angry 22's in the world! laugh.gif
I should be able to to Bernardo>Wally next week for free so that can wait. Thankfully Palace couldn't get a keeper in the window and Sakho's back, Wardy must be close too so they should be a bit tighter.

He's right about Maguire as you get something more than cleanies but I can't do that now, must create huge wedge to get Lingard to Sterling, sadly.

There, hugely painful moves but look on the bright side, it brings Daniels into play and Sterling isn't that expensive all things considered. Value takes a knock, 103.8 but it's more about points now - and after midweek I need a bloody shedload! laugh.gif
