Wow, what a painful weekend that was. One to forget quickly and move on. Only Robertson and Salah (who I didn’t captain) scored any points for my team with Wolves being the biggest let-down by far. My masterplan of wildcarding at around GW9 to bring in Hazard and Doherty has not paid dividends and I feel very lucky to still be just inside the top 10k.
Transfers and captaincy
Much to ponder with Sterling smashing it at the moment and with a great fixture at home to Bournemouth on the weekend. I feel I have a good team set-up for this weekend so am going to stick to my plan and save then look to make the changes in readiness for the midweek GW15. My captain will likely be Hazard at home to Fulham with Chelsea hopefully looking for a good response following their hammering against Spurs. Going into GW15 I am seriously tempted to switch Aguero to Kane and Hazard/Salah to Sterling/Silva/Sane or do a double or even triple change, we shall see how the weekend pans out. My main objective this week is not to do anything rash and remember I am still in a strong position with a good team.

A poor week with my Wolves and Chelsea players letting me down. Maddison is on the chopping block. I have been drafting a few transfers which includes getting Laporte, Sane and Silva into my team but want to be careful not to overdo it although the City players are currently scoring between 7-15 points/week. It would mean ditching Aguero but I’m not too concerned about that as the value in midfield and defence are far superior.

A rough week and drop in rank which is frustrating seens as on paper I had a good team going into the week. I made a transfer bringing the mega-cheap Vinagre (Otto’s replacement) for Luiz as part of a wider move of switching Boly back to Luiz on Sunday to free up 1.4m. The Wolves boys can hopefully make it up to me on Friday but with no clean sheet in five now, I’m not too hopeful. Robertson and Laporte did what they do best but Ryan is beginning to cause a little concern alongside Maddison.
Transfers and captaincy
I am tempted to take Salah out to get in Sterling which would free up another 1.3m but I need to change formation to do this. I may do this after the Sunday games in readiness for Tuesday. Salah just isn’t looking like getting more than a goal per game and at that price he should be having hattrick potential and be a sound captaincy option which I don’t think he is. I will very likely bring Kane in on Wednesday for Aguero also.

My City transfers in finally paid off and I am very happy owning them going forward. Lacazette not turning up was a surprise and I expected more from Richarlison. Shaw returned at last though the Chelsea assets had a horror show against a fine looking Spurs.
My team is starting to take shape and I look forward having my new transfer budget next week get in some City mid(s) and Kane and push on.
Sun Dream Team (2)
Weekly score: 59 Overall rank: 2,312 Transfers left: 1/month for November
A decent week although I was disappointed Jimenez didn’t get anything at home to Huddersfield. My City and Liverpool defenders continue to deliver, Sterling played well on his debut for me and Salah and Aguero continued to trickle along nicely. I have a nice balanced side to move forward with.
I can’t get Kane in fund wise with my final transfer so am going to leave it this week and use it prior to next week’s deadline following the two sets of matches before then to set myself up for that move after the deadline of 7th December.
I will confirm all my transfers on Twitter by the respective deadlines so keep an eye out (My Twitter handle is Fergi222, give me a follow!)
Good luck everyone for GW14!
