Sun Dream Team tips – Sun Pundit Simon Rowley updates us on his team
I’m currently on 1879 points, and in 4911 overall position (prior to FA cup matches). That’s 1000 places lower than from my last update, but I’ve still risen in rank for the last couple of weeks, after dropping down to almost 7000 in January.
I’m fairly happy with my current 11 for this months fixtures. Its not a perfect team, with some rotational issues (Rojo, Gomez and Silva), but with FA cup and champions league on top of the league fixtures, there should be plenty of chances to score points.
Looking at the fixtures for next month, and beyond, certain teams do appear to have favourable run ins. I’d love to get a Spurs defender in (probably for Gomez), but looks impossible with current funds. Burnley look to have the easiest run in overall (hence Pope being transferred in), but lack any extra games. Swansea are currently the best team form wise, outside the top 6, and I may look at putting Mawson in with March’s transfers.
With everyone seemingly having at least 3 Man City players, and many having even more (5 for me!), its worth looking at when they could win the title, as this could lead to rotation in the league, if Pep decides to then concentrate fully on the FA cup and champions league. At the minute I believe the 7th of April is the earliest, but that will move forward if Man Utd don’t win every league game before then.
A quick moan on prices. Not only do price changes appear random (both up and down), but it means there are very few bargains to be found, to try and improve overall ranking, or league positions. Personally I’d prefer the changes to be removed completely, or done monthly, or restricted to £0.1M per week. Does any one actually like the price changes?
As always, I’ll post weekly updates every Friday, and all transfers as I do them. Follow me on @upthevale1 if you don’t want to miss out on them. Good luck to everyone going forward.
