What’s on the Pod?
Ben discusses his season so far and how his GW6 went We then discuss our potential transfers, lineup issues and captain choices for GW7
We then answer questions from the FFGeek Slack Channel
Trent: what presser news scenario would cause you to sell him? Would you go to a three premium team if you sold him?
Man City defenders – who are your top picks and why? Is there a case for Ederson?
Would you keep Jota or Greenwood?
Buy Smith Rowe or Gallagher?
When is the best time to switch Ronaldo to Lukaku ? Nothing much in the fixtures GW7 and GW8, then the huge swing in Lukaku’s favour from GW9 ?
Does Rudiger contract situation make you nervous about his game time?
Do we accept that Alonso is nailed now?
Best replacement for Bachmann?
Are KDB and co. about to hurt us GW8-10
Chelsea sit atop the fixture ease schedule and for midfield options we’ve been presented with Mount and Havertz. There is another midfielder however with 4 offensive returns in 5.5 games, a PPM 37%/73% higher than Mount/Havertz and 50+% more minutes played. Question: Why can’t Kovacic get any respect?
Who are the attractive alternatives to Sanchez when on WC? e.g. Ramsdale, Raya, or even Sa
Given the Trent news, if you are on a WC is it a crazy idea to build without Trent with a plan to get him back for GW8 or 9?
With 2FT , hoping one for a Chelsea def, is Traore still worth holding for his fixture punt ( as Jimmy finally delivered LW ) when other cheaper options are delivering ? Guess it’s similar question for Benrahma too to help fund Chelsea/ Man C defence?
