I finally made my big move by getting in Salah and Pogba for a hit with Success the enabling third striker. A red arrow was mainly down to taking the hit and also not having a City player so not all bad although I need to work out how to get a City player in.
My defence was a shambles, like most other manager’s, with the other frustrations being Fraser and particularly Richarlison who have dried up completely. The issue is Richarlison’s fixtures are still really good and he has been unlucky not to score a few over the past few weeks. Hazard also continues to frustrate but has Bournemouth and Huddersfield next so hopefully a rollocking off the manager and a Higuain-shaped striker to aim at will sort him and Alonso out so they can finally repay by blind faith over the next two or so games.
There is a twist also in that there is an outside chance of a Chelsea GW25 double gameweek depending on the Carabao Cup sem-final outcomes. I would advise waiting on transfers this week as there are these semis plus an FA Cup round over the weekend and before the next gameweek.
Transfers and captaincy
As mentioned above, my patience with Hazard, Alonso and Richarlison is wearing incredibly thin and I don’t have a City mid which is hurting each week. I am 0.1 short of doing a straight Richarlison to Sane which I don’t know is a good or bad thing but forces my hand to not do the move. My team looks pretty good for GW24 without any transfers so I will probably leave it until the cup games are over and then make a decision on a transfer, or not, with the most up-to-date information to hand.
My captain will be Salah and vice will be Pogba again.

An ok-ish week with a rank fall due to me taking Salah out as part of the wider City plan which is now in full swing. City play another twice (three times including the Carabao Cup semi which aren’t included in the scoring) before Liverpool play again so hopefully I can make real headway before shifting the team around again towards the end of the month. It is reasonably likely that currently only Robertson and Anderson will play in GW27 due to the Carabao Cup final which is a worry although there is a chance that the potentially affected teams (which include City, Everton and Chelsea) will play their rearranged games in GW25 which would work out perfectly for me.
If they play them later in the season I could potentially be threadbare for a weekend. No transfers planned for the FA Cup weekend as I am well set but Salah and maybe Allison will be coming back in on the Wednesday evening against Leicester.

Back down to earth with a bump as Salah undid the gains I made last week. I brought in Jiminez for the benched Maddison which went ok; he is also a good option for the final Monday night match before the overhaul against Newcastle. Jesus disappointingly didn’t start against Huddersfield so I made another move to Sterling which went Ok alongside Laporte’s standard 10-pointer. I am hoping Hazard can find some form in his next couple as he is quite low-owned for such an explosive player at 26%.
Transfers and captaincy
I have a good team for the Tuesday night games and will look to bring Salah back in on the Wednesday night for captaincy against Leicester. I don’t then plan any more transfers until the overhaul… famous last words.

Another decent week in this format despite now owning Salah with the City boys again doing me proud which I hope will continue over the next week or two; I have more than halved my rank since Xmas. Rashford has been a great signing and Hazard and Richarlison are hopefully ripe for returns over the next couple of games so I am hoping to break the top 100k for the first time since October soon. City now have 3 more games before Liverpool play again, with Chelsea, Everton and United having 2.

Same commentary as above, hoping City, United, Everton and Chelsea do the business before I can bring Salah in for the Bournemouth game on 9th Feb.

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 GW24!
