Bryan Forbes O’Rourke

Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season

30 gameweek points, total points 906, Overall rank 2,234 transfers available 24

Only 30 points scored which meant a slip down the rankings to 2234 position. 24 transfers left.

Trippier was the hero of the week, with his clean sheet when I hadn’t expected him to play. Mane and Trippier aside, no one else really turned up. When the two premium strikers blank with plum fixtures, then the omens are not so good. Also Jonny Castro is now back for Wolves meaning the chips are up for Vinagre. With only 0.1M in the bank, I will have to hunt about the bargain bin for a replacement. Mendy at Leicester is a contender, that would mean a formation shift to 4-4-2.

Other than Vinagre, I don’t plan on making any transfers. I will ride the rotation storm, trust to luck and preserve transfers for an second half season assault. Here’s to a good weekend. Merry Xmas 🙂

Sergio Torija

Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football

34 Gameweek points Total Pts 893 Overall rank 3,303 Transfers available 19

A poor week with only 34 points which meant a rank drop of around 500 places to position 3,303. Nothing in defence, with a no show from Kolasinac which is particularly worrying given that his competitor for the left back spot Monreal is back fit. I also did the planned transfer of Maddison to Robertson, so happy to hold him for the long term. Not much points claimed in the attack neither, the best Anderson with 2 KCs, at least Sterling and Lacazette managed to provide points from the bench.

For the week coming, I am still not settled on what to do might decide to ship the Arsenal boys if they keep not starting. Arsenal play the early game on Saturday, so a good exit point, with fixtures toughening up as well. Hazard would be the primary target to bring in, but I will be monitoring the Man U guys as well. So a week to look at the lineups

Good luck for GW18 Geekers!

Ben Humphrey

Ben is a top 1k finisher in TFF

Week points: 44 Overall rank: 2,247 Transfers remaining: 26

Team review

44 points doesn’t sound like much, but in the context of the week, it wasn’t too bad. Still hovering outside the top 2000, and plenty of transfers in the bank.

Defence was a disaster, other than good old Doherty, what a bargain he is turning out to be.

With my mighty pairing of Kane and Aubameyang again failing to impress, with just a single assist between them, it was down to my midfield to save the day. With Sterling starting on the bench, that was looking unlikely. Thankfully he popped off the bench to score, adding to Anderson’s two assists. Mr Hazard has also come good. After dealing exclusively in assists of late, he finally netted himself a goal too.

Team thoughts

There are, as always, a few players I would like to bring in.

Lovren Liv £3.7m

Sane MCY £4.9m

Shaqiri LIV £3.9m

Hernandez WHM £4.8m

As much as I would like these players, some more than others, there’s not really an obvious opening in my team. Kolasinac could make way for Lovren, giving me a double up on Liverpool’s defence, but the Arsenal man has only just come in to cash in on The Gunners lovely fixtures. I’m hoping that he will be fit for the weekend.

There is also no way I’m kicking out any of my six attacking players, all of whom are either in good form or or set up for a run of fixtures. This means my watch list will only come in to play if injury forces my hand.

Good luck, and may your arrows be Norwich shorts.
