What’s on the Pod?

We talk about our seasons so far as well as GW8.  We then outline our plans for GW9 including transfers and captains. Rob is on his wildcard and discusses that in detail including injuries and planned transfers further forward.
We then answer questions from the FFGeek Slack Channel

The questions

I’ll be the one to ask the obvious – what do you do with a problem like Salah
Do you make room for Vardy or is it better to have 3 of the 6M-7.8M forwards that are representing the best value in the game right now?
Salah replacement options when you already have Bruno and De Bruyne? If Salah is out only 1 week, bench or one-week punt? Same question for Chilwell.

What do you plan to do with Kane and Son, through Spurs tougher fixture run ?
Which Man City players are you planning to bring in, for their tasty fixtures, and when ?
Who would you bring in for Chelsea attack? Much smaller issue: Would a potential vice (or first) captain against Lee in GW11 matter (personally I assume captain De Bruyne or Sterling that week)?
Another small question, if you brought in Vardy would you captain him next week (vs City asset)?
I know it was discussed on the last pod but it would be great to hear some wildcard chat around whether to go gw10 for the fixture swing or wait till nearer gw15/16 to hopefully get news about the double and blank game-weeks. Thanks!
Best possible replacement for Kane if you have Calvert Lewin and Bamford. I was think Antonio if he is fit ?  Also that allows me to get De Bruyne instead of Rodriguez from gw10
Is swapping out Kane and Son for Vardy and De Bruyne a wise move/safe losing both Spurs assets?
