What’s on the Pod?
Kris discusses his season so far and his just completed Wildcard. We generally discuss our teams performance in GW4 and discuss our potential transfers, lineup issues and captain choices for GW5
We then answer questions from the FFGeek Slack Channel
If I’m trading down from Fernandes, would you recommend Jota or Torres in order to make funds for a DCL to Lukaku switch? Or is there another player you’d recommend?
Are you wary of having 2 attacking players from the same team because if the team have a bad game they both do badly or do you think they can hedge for each other (e.g. if Salah doesn’t score Jota might or if Pep rotates out Torres Gundogan should play)
Imagine a parallel universe where Mane and Jota cost the same price and you want one in your wildcard team. Which one you pick at this moment?
Am I wasting my time trying to work out which one of Saka/Odegaard/ESR to pick on a wildcard?
Keen to hear your thoughts on Tomiyasu. Do you think he’s nailed gametime wise and how do you rate his prospects?
Also do you think Ramsdale holds his place moving forwards?
For anyone on a “two premium” approach, and the plan is to switch Ronaldo out to Lukaku in GW7, do you think many will have the balls to actually sell Ronaldo, or is it better just to go Salah Ronaldo Lukaku from GW7, particularly as we will have an extra two weeks to firm up the necessary “enablers” to make it happen
Will arsenal be able to take advantage of their favourable fixtures? Is Tierney worth the extra 0.5m over White? Will arsenal ever compete for the PL title again? Or are they doomed to scrap Spurs for 5th place?
I currently have zero CHE players. I’m looking ahead and I think that I will aim for a def and Lukaku. I really can’t be bothered trying to guess which def will be nailed so I’m looking at GK Mendy. He’s playing really well and making saves. Thoughts on this plan? The only downside I can see is possible random rotation with Kepa?
Which Chelsea defender is best? Rudiger for starts or Janes for offensive potential? Sort of a Dias vs Cancelo question.
Is anyone targeting Everton players for the next few fixtures (villa, Nor). Watched the game monday night and Townsend, Doncoure and Grey had a good game. (second half). Doucoure supplied some fantastic through balls, Grey took his goal well and Townsend surprised me with some powerful goal and nearly a second. Richarlson had a woeful game (his temper getting the better of him).
For those not WCing GW7 or GW8, when do you see next natural WC point?
If you’re wildcarding GW7, who are you planning on bringing into your team over the next couple of weeks? In case you’re not wildcarding soon, who would you rate as interesting differentials over the same period?
If you could choose one defender & one attacker to bring for the next 2 game weeks who would it be? (I plan on wildcarding in GW7 so just thinking these 2 weeks)
