Bryan Forbes O’Rourke
Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season
41 gameweek points total points 382 Overall rank 4,930 transfers available 33
Another awful week, 41 points scored, 1 transfer used and positioned 4,930 overall.
Not a lot to say this week again, just too many poor transfers made. Richarlison replaced Lingard, who scored 4 points for me after he replaced Mahrez. Mahrez scored 12 points during this time. So 2 transfers made at a cost of 8 points in order to swap Mahrez for Richarlison. That sums it up!
No changes made barring broken limbs or suspensions. Have a most pleasant weekend 🙂
Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football
55 Gameweek points Total Pts 402 Overall rank 1,917 Transfers available 31
Another decent week for me with 55 points (no transfers used) and rank improvement to position 1,917. My most recent transfers delivered well: Lacazette with a KC and both Trippier and Bellerin with CS and KC, only Richarlison let me down. Out of the rest, Ederson and Aguero did their part, with all the others at least turning up.
The team is well setup for the coming weeks. Of course I could do one or two moves to bring in players with better fixtures, however I think I will hold for the moment unless unexpected injuries or suspensions, since I am fairly low on transfers for this time of the year.
Good luck for GW8 Geekers!
Ben is a top 1k finisher in TFF
Week points: 55 Overall rank: 2,233 Transfers remaining: 36
That was another decent week, resulting in a satisfying jump up the rankings.
The defence had an average week, with a clean sheet from Man City and a goal from Van Aanholt. His first goal of the season came at a good time as I am getting itchy feet about owning a Palace defender as their fixtures take a turn for the worse. I will be having a good hard think about his future over the next few days.
The midfield did ok, with Mr Hazard doing the business against Liverpool again, and Moura and Maddison both collecting another assist each. Salah is becoming a slight concern. His stats might be good, but he certainly isn’t passing the eye test. I don’t know what’s going on there, but his lack of confidence coupled with the future Champion’s League possible rotation is a cause for concern. Another subject worthy of a good hard think.
My two strikers are still doing me proud. Aguero scored himself another 10 points, while my faith in Arnautovic and his fixture proof powers have been rewarded.
I have four points of interest to ponder. The first is the future of Van Aanholt. He has done well enough for his price, but I’m not convinced Palace will keep many clean sheets against the big boys. It’s who I would get in of similar value that would make it worth the change. I suppose the obvious choice is one of the Wolves wing backs.
I am also keen to get back on the Mendy horse when he’s allowed out of the stable. His future in my team may be inextricably linked with that of Moura, who’s game time may be under threat. These choices will have to be made if and when we are blessed with some solid information.
The last and biggest dilemma, is the Salah conundrum. Do we stick or twist? That is the question.
If I were to replace him with another big budget mid, it wouldn’t actually free up that much cash, so is it worth the transfer and the inevitable panic every time he plays? I think for now I will be sticking, with one greedy eye on the Huddersfield and Cardiff games that follow the visit of Man City. I will be hoping that he can finally score big and punish those who gave up on him.
I shall give Van Aanholt one more week, hoping that he can rack up some points when Wolves come to play. Then the fixtures get nasty, so he will be thanked for his service and asked politely to leave.
The upshot of all that is, I probably won’t be making any changes this week.
Good luck, and may your arrows be Norwich shorts.
