When I'm 64!

A pair of 64's over 26 & 27 is one way of consistency I guess, but against top 10k av's of 47.6 & 81.0 standing still is highly volatile... or is it? They all add up to 128 don't they?
It's a poor score though, but could have been worse so best just take the 2 week avearge, glass half full and be thankful Naughton came on.

Doesn't feel the right side for 28 either, Mkhi v The Best, Pogba out of position, sorts & maybe even favour v a resurgent(?) Chelski - that's nearly 16m of talent staring at blanks already. The glass half full would argue Gooners do score goals at home and The Best do concede, stop worrying. Pogba is harder to be positive about atm though, let's try... erm, passes to Alexis on the half-way line, he runs 50 yards and scores, assist, now get the hell out of my team!

It comes to something when you half hope Alonso is moderately injured so you can start both Daniels & Naughton, but I have to admit I almost do.

Transfer? Cap? Bench? Plans? The heading question suggests a knife-edge early move but looking at the sums and predictions it seems there is no appetite for the player on my radar, so absolutley no need to rush.

Salah is now in that 'must cap' form, everything's working, teams can't stop him. Kane is a good option too though and but for some great goalkeeping I would have got more than 64.

Bench? If Alonso's back then I may reluctantly bench Daniels but I fear he has a biggie coming and it could be v new, toss up v Naughty?

Plans? Just wait for all the cup & Euro games to be played but continue to look to bring gw31 players in and save FH for 35 I think?

The player? I'm not 100% sure his manager is making the most of his talents atm but he's got the fixtures, price, form, class & 31. He's been ignored for good reasons but maybe it's time for...

Alonso being dropped in huge numbers now, fell a pip last night and I missed it, should have seen my face this morning when I saw I had lost a pip on him already angry2.gif lost faith in him now, had enough he's burnt me 3 times this season, he's going for Dijky if he comes through ok once Pools game is out of the way this evening

I can see why you would want to play Naughton and Daniels, at least they are bringing the points in, thats more than Alonso is doing, ideal time to drop with United and Citeh away and no game week 31

Pogba's another one thats got to go, your in the same boat as me matey, splice the mainbrace laugh.gif

Conte didn't seem to give a prognosis on Alonso but there seems to be a feeling he isn't badly injured and will be back soon, maybe CL. Like you and probably everyone else in the world I'd been considering VVD, but Mane's hattie has caused a rethink. Mind you, tripling-up up top never seems to work these days so maybe VVD is the practical solution.
The 'news' on Pogba just gets worse, talk of a bust-up with Maureen and wanting away! Seems a bit extreme but maybe some truth in there somewhere, can take a drop and still get Siggy.
