GW3 review:

let’s start with the pleasant notes

I brought in the player I wanted the most from this GW and he scored a goal (although I was actually hoping for something more) Jackson!

I was all week with the doubt Foden or Sterling obviously I brought in the first and Sterling scored 2 goals, while Foden started “OBVIOUSLY” from the bench… in the plans there was the idea of bringing in Udogie, now with 12 points he’s finished under anyone’s lens, but the situation could have been even worse than it is now, let me explain:

Shaw’s injury has opened an incredible rift for those without (like me) a city defensive asset, as most have brought in Dias for him, and this could have triggered a dangerous effect if Onana hadn’t gotten a cs (as it happened later) and the city instead yes.

GW4 talking points/plans/thoughts:

Richarlison disappointed again, this time very badly, he was replaced before the 60th minute and was also booked, a real frustration, his game was very bad, however the spurs matches are excellent, the coach plays attacking football and he is the alleged penalty taker (although…) and they haven’t bought a centre-forward yet, ergo sooner or later he will have to bring points

Bruno Fernandes, Mbeumo and Martinelli are the most possessed around my rank, and potential killers, but between suboptimal fixtures, the possible return of players like Jesus, and the fact that I only want players from premium teams, given the low prices, I don’t feel like bringing no one inside,

However this week I will make a change, but it remains to be seen which one, if you can I suggest you keep it and use two for next week after the international break, in my case the situation is different this is done when you do not have enough funds and therefore it is necessary to move 2 players, but in my case having over 3 million in the bank I can get away with even just one change (always hoping that 2 players with the national teams don’t get hurt)

The matches of the big teams this week are not even as good as they were in the previous one and this is already a problem.

GW4 so what next:

Many will get on the Sterling bandwagon, but I can no longer have Onana in goal, my United have a thousand injuries and are more vulnerable now in defence (as we saw on Sunday), I absolutely want an asset from the city and since my first draft there was always Ederson (who in my opinion is the most nailed)

I’m glad I was right on the fact that despite Enciso’s absence, Joao Pedro as I wrote on twitter could not play from the start, opting De Zerbi for the two strikers.

I have to start thinking about getting rid of the Brighton players fast, although Estupinan and Mitoma are still very possessed, they start having bad matches and cup rotations will start,

I have to start thinking about bringing in Newcastle players their games look very good, they are in good form, and their manager is Klopp style he doesn’t make many changes!

But I’ll wait for the last few minutes before doing it, the leak is too much more important this year, the game has changed it’s no longer programming but leak (and I don’t like this at all), but we have to adapt and survive.


Captain – Haaland VC – Jackson

Transfer summary – likely Ederson IN, Onana OUT

Gameweek 3 review:

Well there won’t be many gameweeks all season that match the excitement of GW3, with plenty of late drama too !!

Man City conceded their first goal of the season, that looked like being costly, losing their lead after 85 mins, only for Rodri to snatch the winner and preserve the only 100% record. All that after Haaland missed from the spot and scored a goal too.

Darwin Nunez was only on the field just 13 mins, but turned a likely defeat at Newcastle into an improbable victory with just ten men. Arsenal conceded after 57 seconds, turned it around, only to lose the three points after 87 mins. And Man Utd turned a 0-2 into a 3-2 with Rashford and Bruno both getting a double return.

Elsewhere, Sterling scored twice as Chelsea beat Luton, Matty Cash scored twice as Villa won at Burnley, Westham burst the Brighton bubble, Spurs won at Bournemouth, Brentford and Palace drew, and Wolves grabbed a late win at Everton to leave the toffees without a point or a goal. Everton and the three newly promoted teams all prop up the table on nil points.

My GW3 score and rank:

I was fairly optimistic with 10/11 players having home fixtures. In the end a reasonable 6/11 returners, including a captain goal, in a score of 55 points, which was around the Elite manager average.

A 19 point combination from Bruno and Rashford, Saka from the spot, a captain Haaland goal, with Jackson and Chilwell  getting the ball rolling on Friday.

A welcome rank rise from 767k to 415k, a 45% rank uplift. So a pleasing week overall. Ranks are very volatile at the moment but it’s a decent position after three weeks.

My GW3 significant moments:

I had two decisions to make going into the gameweek. Firstly, I played the fixtures and transferred out Ollie Watkins for Jackson of Chelsea and gained two immediate points. If  Chilwell had not made a pigs ear of a scoring chance, assisted by Jackson, it could have been a fun Friday. Chilwell continues to threaten a huge haul with his advanced positioning and Jackson is raw round the edges but his goal will help in promising fixtures ahead.

My other big call was what to do with Gabriel !! I didn’t catch the late leak in GW1 and move to Saliba, so I was 11 points down and counting. I could have started him, benched him for Pinnock, sold him to Saliba, or sold him to a Man City defender. I was pretty confident he would start, it was a golden fixture v Fulham, and I feared a big score if I sold him. In the end, it mattered not, he didn’t play, I got the pinnock two points anyway, and both Arsenal and Man City conceded too !! With three benchings and a tough game next, he looks an easy sell now.

I was always going to stay loyal to Bruno and Rashford in a good home fixture, especially Bruno with his early season stats. 19 points between them, each getting a double return, was a pleasing outcome. With Rashford 41% owned and Bruno delivering on his promise, they wont be going anywhere. Fixtures are pretty good, despite Arsenal away this week.

Saka was back on penalties which is a big string to his bow. Both him and Martinelli were on trial, with lots of midfielders finding their form and pressing their claims. Martinelli played 90 mins but has just one assist from three games. He could make way this week. He could well punish sellers with Jesus back in the fold, as Martinelli tends to thrive when Jesus drifts wide and allows Marty to forage into more central positions.

I don’t think I have ever been as unperturbed by a penalty miss from my captain. His 190% “effective ownership” meant it mattered little. It was actually quite funny. Anyway, he popped up with a Captain goal and 8 points, which always looks better on the scoreboard at least.

Estupinan and Mbeumo didn’t owe me anything after giving me 41 points between them from the first two gameweeks. Let you off this week boys. Fixtures remain excellent for Mboooomo. He is still leading that battle with Eze and Mitoma, although Diaby is now looking the one. Onana is looking fragile with the Man Utd defence shaking, but I won’t be making any keeper changes before my first wildcard. The popular Twitter template keeper Pickford conceded late fortunately.

So what next:

Another Friday deadline with lots of managers playing very impulsively right now, chasing price changes aggressively. There are lots of bandwagons teasing us with points. But my stance remains the same. Unless you have an absolutely essential player that you might be priced out of, you don’t have to act on every price change. I am happy to let a few 0.1M movements pass in the quest for more information on a Friday. Look at early Maddison sellers last week. We have TWELVE teams in EFL cup action midweek !! Hold your transfers.

I won’t be playing an early wildcard either. The “must buy” players are changing week by week. There simply isn’t enough consistent performance data available yet. I can get to virtually any player I want in two moves. I always like to play my first wildcard during the second international break ( after GW8 ). The data sample then will be a lot more reliable and consistent. A lot of wildcards being thrown around now look unnecessary and based on limited evidence of just three weeks. A wildcard one week looks very different the following week.

It’s the final week before the first international break. With the potential for injuries in the two weeks break being high, carrying two into the international break is definitely optimal. Worth bearing in mind if you can be patient this week.

I only made one of my two free transfers last week, so I still have two free transfers and 0.9M in the bank, so plenty of flexibility and I won’t be rushing my moves. I have to make one transfer or lose it, but there is a good chance I make two, despite the desirability of taking two frees into the break.

My possible transfers:

Gabriel has been a disaster. A third successive benching v Fulham. There is obviously something going on. He still can’t start despite multiple injuries in defence. He might well start next game but it’s a better exit point v Man Utd than it was at home to Fulham and he simply can’t be trusted anymore.

A rank halving gameweek is always satisfying regardless of your rank ! went from 2.6 to 1.3 million this gameweek so couldn’t be happier. Its so early in the season and the way the team is set I believe as with last week I am again a step ahead regarding transfers than most are. 

This week I have made an early transfer
