What’s on the pod?

We go through our teams GW1 performance as well as plans for GW2 and we answer questions from the FFGeek Slack Channel

The Questions 

What to do about Saliba now he looks like he’s not going to start for Arsenal? I play 442 so him not starting is problematic

Plan was to sell Salah to Sterling / De Bruyne, but considering Salah hat-trick, not easy to sell even if he has tough fixtures. What do you think ?

After being burnt this week by choosing Aubameyang as captain instead of Salah, is there a valid case for just ‘setting and forgetting’ Salah as the default captain every week, unless he’s injured?

Do we keep Son one more week? Can get Rashford if done early or Greenwood but think 2 FT next week will be useful.

If you were planning on shipping Salah after GW1 should you stick or twist?  plan was Bruno but rethinking now.

Salah or Aubameyang to Bruno Fernandes this week?

Do you think Strujik and Holding will hold their places?

De Bruyne or Sterling? (My plan is from week 3)

If Aubamayang scores 2/3 at home to West Ham this weekend, will you stick to the plan to switch him to a Man City midfielder. If so, do you prefer de Bruyne or Sterling

Which Leeds players impressed you the most?

Was Van Dijk open so much on set pieces because he is just that good or is this an issue with Leeds that we can take advantage of?

Now that we have a gameweek in the books, have your thoughts changed on any 4.5M defenders?

What formation do you feel will be best at this early stage of season?

De Bruyne or Sterling for week 3 ? And is it Worth a -4 for Saint Maximin to Foden ?  

Considering Havertz to Mahrez what do u think ?
