Another green arrow this week mainly due to the Aguero captain pick, Richarlison putting in a very convincing showing up front and my transfer in, Arnautovic, putting in a great performance. A late Alonso assist compensated for the clean sheet miss so all in all another good gameweek. Fraser was unlucky not to return and I was also a little disappointed Salah didn’t return against Arsenal although the Gunners did impress me and I’ll be looking their way when their fixtures turn around GW16 if they keep the momentum going. My double Wolves defence is beginning to look a little creaky although Doherty’s assist was wrongly given offside so the attacking intent is still there.
Transfers and captaincy
I have a decent set-up for GW13 but am beginning to look at a couple of things including looking at a Spurs asset from GW15 and as mentioned above, an Arsenal asset from GW16. At the moment these would probably be Tripper and/or Kane and Lacazette so I need to start thinking about how I begin this transition with funds needed. United also begin a decent run from GW16 so Martial is in my thoughts if he can continue starting. I will probably save a transfer this week which will help with shifting funds around next week. Captaincy this week will be Salah at home to
Fulham, as plum as they get and very probably a poll landslide although Hazard may have something to say about that at home to Everton.

A poor week and rank drop with many of my transfer targets including Richarlison, Arnautovic and Sterling punishing me for not investing earlier. With the international break around the corner I am going to wait due to potential injuries etc but will likely be making some big moves to set me up for the busy schedule in December with my shortlist including those above and Trippier, Laporte and Martial. TFF is different from FPL in that keeping transfers back for the FA Cup and subsequent rearranged league games from February to May can give you huge rank boosts so I am sticking to my strategy for now.

Not a great week even though I had Richarlison and captained Aguero on Sunday. Maddison is beginning to frustrate but still has some good games coming up whilst the double Wolves defence is going through a rough patch and Ryan’s colossal form caught up with against the brilliant Richarlison. My team is pretty template and is above average for transfers left so again I am not overly concerned with some good games next week for my players.
Transfers and captaincy
I will reassess over the international break and likely make a few transfers after that to get on the next run of games and captains to see me up until the New Year. I will post my thoughts on this during the break and will likely be similar to the TFF moves. Maddison will likely be my captain on Saturday at home to Burnley with Salah (home to Fulham) or Hazard (home to Everton) being the Sunday captain.

Richarlison and Aguero were the only players who really returned for me although next week looks like a lot nicer set of fixtures for my Liverpool and Chelsea players. I have a lot of players playing midweek so am hoping to a rank boost from these and the start of the comeback.
So I took out Kane and Hart for Laporte and Ederson which didn’t pay off immediately but I feel is the right move in the long term. I am saving my third transfer for injury/a forward thinking move for December.

As you can see this team is very similar to the one I am moving to from my original team but with the transfers in hand! The defence has been the differentiator and is a big lesson for next season for me.
I will be leaving for next weekend and will then assess some moves over the international break to set me up for the Xmas run-in.
I will confirm all my transfers on Twitter (My Twitter handle is Fergi222, give me a follow!) by the respective deadlines so keep an eye out
Good luck everyone for GW12!
