Team 1; The balanced one.
Of the wildcard teams I’ve seen floating round twitter, this seems the most template. And with good reason. It strikes the form players and is well balanced through all positions. Having cheap players Wan-B and Doherty is superb. It means we can have reliable bench players that are cheap! You could change a few players in the price brackets (Mitro to Zaha/Arnie for example) but I do like the structure.
Team 2; 4-3-3
A true 4-3-3 in that we have a strong backline and two 4.5 mid’s. I like this team as I think there is real value at the back and it makes sense to make the most of it. Arguably, the upgrade of Ings to Zaha isnt worth the cost it has made in having a dud-midfielder as Ings is also proving excellent value.
Team 3; Flexible
It provides depth through the team, covers all the major captains picks and has good depth on the bench. The eagle eyed amongst you will have spotted double Pool defence; a bit of a differential call and, after their next two they have a nice run again of fixtures again and statistically they are allowing their opponents very few chances.
I’m unsure which way I will go right now, I’m still clinging on to Mane for this game so want to see out CL games. Short and sweet but I hope it helps with your wildcard thoughts. Good luck
I’ll post the final team on twitter and as close as it is to final on the FFGeek contributors articles Friday night/Saturday morning UK time.
Here’s a poll for you to vote on to assist my decision.
