An underwhelming week with 27 points scored and now placed 4029 overall.

The two strikers accounted for almost half the weeks tally , with a goal apiece from Aguero and Rashford.

The team looks fairly well set for the double gameweek so I won’t make any transfers at the weekend unless injury or suspension strikes.

Good luck

Ben is a top 1k finisher in TFF

Week points: 38  Overall rank: 1241  Transfers remaining: 13

Team review.

On the face of it, 38 doesn’t sound like a very good week, but judging by my mini league and the fact that my rank improved, it can’t have been too bad.

Other than Shaw’s assist, the defence did little to help out. The combined might of Hazard, Sterling, Pogba and Salah could only manage a shocking 7 points between them, so it was left to my newest recruit, Mr James Maddison to bring in some points. On the subject of Maddison… At this stage in the game, I think it’s important to recognise when you’ve made a mistake. After watching Palace play Watford and Brighton, I decided that Schlupp was a mistake. Luckily for me, Palace played at lunch time, opening up the opportunity for me to bring in Maddison before Leicester kicked off. One look at The Fox’s fixtures will make you think that you need some Leicester cover, so I made the change and it paid off.

Jimenez and Aguero both delivered 7 points, but that doesn’t even begin to explain the Aguero story. A deflected shot which was put in on the follow up by B Silva. A penalty which was missed then deflected in by the keeper, and one standard goal. On the other side of all that, TFF decided he came out with 7 points.

Team thoughts.

By my calculations, seven of my players will be involved in the double game week. The exceptions being Maddison, who’s fixtures make up for the lack of two games in a week, and the rest of the single game brigade being my Liverpool contingent. That’s where the waters muddy. One move I will certainly be making to tip the balance is swopping Alisson for Ederson. Liverpool play once and that is against Spurs. Man City play twice, and that is against Fulham and Cardiff. Which would you rather sign up to? On top of that, City are of course still in the FA cup, which could mean an extra two games.

I will be keeping Robertson, but Salah has become a heavy fantasy enigma. Like most managers, I’m weighing up the ownership threat against the benefits of spending his funds elsewhere. I could swop him for Rashford or Lacazette, but neither of those options get me too excited. I could even transfer him out for his team mate Mane, but I, like most managers, have that dread that once the change is made, Salah will burst in to life. The question is, how long do you give an underperforming Salah who is clearly feeling the pressure and trying too hard?

I will then be making a change between the sticks, which will leave me with 12 transfers. I’m more than happy to have that at this stage of the season. I will certainly be saving some for the FA cup final. Assuming Man City get there, their competition isn’t looking too strong, so it could be a very one sided final.

Good luck boys and girls.

Stephen Troop

Stephen finished approximately 1k last season OR

Week points: 32  Overall rank: 4,878  Transfers remaining: 10 total points:  1,649

Last week was fairly low scoring, with not much rank movement and I remain at 4.8k. I resisted a move for Jesus given it’d be only a one game punt and only Mane served any real punishment. This week is the first proper double gameweek. The main opportunity looks like Pogba out after his game Tuesday for a Spurs player (2-0 games) or a City asset for the extra games. I have yet to decide which option I’ll go for though.

The other move I’m looking at is Anderson out for a Watford player prior to their game against Fulham and cup semi final. The lineup may dictate this.

  1. Gents, would appreciate your input as I’m trying to win my mini league. I’m thinking of being bold and dumping Pogba and Salah. In their place will come Laporte and Kane. Trying to get more coverage with this coming weeks games. Problem is I’m down to my last 5 transfers. Any input would be nice.

  2. Using “number of fixtures remaining” logic, it makes sense to get rid of Man Utd players after the Wolves game, in order to replace them with Man City players. Personally, I’d go for a City attacker rather than Sir Harry. Liverpool also play fewer games than City, but I reckon there may be goals to come from Salah, so that one is more difficult to call. Why not double up on City, bringing in Laporte plus whichever of Aguero, Sterling and Bernardo Silva you don’t already have?

  3. Thanks guys. The Salah issue I have looked at close quarters being a Liverpool supporter. He is a shadow and I feel the move back to the lane coupled with two home games may see Spurs explode into life. Kane may well outscore Salah but also I could bring Salah back for the final few. Southampton and Chelsea next don’t scream goals but you never know. I already have Sterling, Aguero and Edison so Laporte would be a final city player so as not to unhinge the team should they have a shocker. Aguero showing up as a doubt for the game so that may alter my thinking.

  4. Straight swap Aguero for Kane given the injury. Salah reprieve so he gets to stay for a couple of more games at least! Will wait for line ups.
