Here’s my game week 7 team for Barclays fantasy premier league including the transfer:
This week my transfer in is Gervinho in of Arsenal and NZogbia out. The 2 urgent fixes required in my team were NZogbia who’s been an abject failure and Graham who was invisible in Swanseas good start. However, it made no sense to change Graham just before a home game to Reading. NZogbia who is as certain as anyone can be with Paul Lambert as a manager to not start in an away game to Spurs was in desperate need of change.
My rationale for Gervino is this
1. Playing as a striker and 10th in the shooting stats despite Arsenals difficult start
2. Arsenal have the 5th best fixtures in the next 6th with a positive trend at least for the next round. Im not wild about 2 away games but West ham and Norwich are 2 sides who cant guarantee their fantasy premier league future so it could be worse.
3. I didn’t have the cash for other options which were more expensive such as Cazorla and Silva both who have surprisingly figured in the shooting stats but give additional chances created options. Cazorla is probably a more reliable captain option than Gervinho.
My captain is Bale. I’m about to do a captain choice article but there was little other option with uncertainty of selection for Tevez and RVP facing a potentially tricky tie away to Newcastle.
