Bryan Forbes O’Rourke
Bryan finished an incredible 7th place overall in telegraph fantasy football last season
45 gameweek points Overall rank 2,865 transfers available 35
Its been painful enough not having Alonso and then along comes Hazard to rub salt in the wounds. My budget players saved the day, Coady and Wan Bissaka proving to be bargains in defence. Its a pity the premium players aren’t pulling their weight and in that regard I finally transferred out Mahrez. I hadn’t planned to, but I impulsed him out to Lingard for the extra United game. This isn’t a long term move, Richarlison will replace Lingard in a couple of weeks time. Andre Gray scored to justify his transfer in for Richarlison and he may be a keeper now. I don’t want to be burning anymore transfers this week and surely Chelsea have to get hammered soon ! Best to your weekend !
Sergio finished in 1,951 position last season in telegraph fantasy football
38 gameweek points Overall rank 3,849 transfers available 34
Poor week for my team with 38 points. I only managed one clean sheet from defence which is poor even though I did have two players not playing in Shaw and Mendy. The attack was ok with returns from B.Silva, Aguero and Gray. Both Mane and Salah were unlucky not to get something too.
For this week Schlupp is most likely on his way out having lost the starting place at Palace, but I haven’t made my mind yet about whom to replace him with, possibly Trippier, but tempted by Richarlison as well. Also Mendy is under monitoring due to his possible injury, but my intention is to hold.
Good luck for GW6 Geekers !
Ben is a top 1k finisher in TFF
Week points: 67 Overall rank: 3.701 Transfers remaining: 38
That’s more like it. It was a relief to have another good week after a few disappointing ones. There was the surprise of Mendy going AWOL, but that effected most managers. There was also the irritation of Arsenal and Liverpool conceding late, but at least Palace managed a clean sheet.
My decision to bring in Hazard a few weeks back has certainly paid off. I’ve been trying not to feel too smug hearing so many other managers wishing they had brought him in before the hat-trick. I was also delighted with Maddison’s late show against Bournemouth, 10 points I wasn’t expecting when Leicester were four down.
Aguero might not have got on the score sheet, but two assists keeps things ticking over nicely, while the 10 points from Arnautovic was a welcome Sunday bonus.
Transfer plans and thoughts.
My plan was always to bring Richarlison back in this week. I can make a straight swap for Sokratis, who is starting to annoy me. I honestly expected that Arsenal would have managed a clean sheet by now with their friendly fixtures. I won’t be going anywhere near an Arsenal defender for the foreseeable. When I first checked the fixtures for Richarlisons return, I was debating leaving it a further week before bringing him back, but after seeing the state of Arsenal’s defence, I am treating the Everton Arsenal game as a good chance for Richarlison to come back with a bang. Making this change would put me back in to the land of 4-4-2, which I feel would leave me with a more balanced team, as well as the relief of sacking my Arsenal defender.
There are a few other concerns, which I’m hoping will be addressed in the press conferences. Arnautovic has us playing Austrian roulette once again, while Mendy is still an uncertain starter at the time of writing. I feel surprisingly relaxed about this. I suppose this is partly because so many managers are in the same boat, but I also have a feeling that they will all be playing. How’s that for optimism?
May your fantasy cups runneth over.
