Welcome to Fantasy Football Captain Picks Gameweek 10.

It’s all about… the vice!

“Ivan says he’s going to pick you as Captain next week but I think he’s just doing it to wind Smash up (even) more”

When I initially asked our writing team for their Captaincy input this week it was about 1pm on Sunday. By 6pm, I was met with a mixture of silence and incredulity. After all, Salah had just done that, to Ole and co. And he has a home game this weekend against Brighton. In all honesty, I could have just left it at that but it felt like a dereliction of duty to not at least address the issue.

This will not be a long article. The fact of the matter is that we are possibly about to witness the most captained player ever. If he fails then at least we all fail together, and for once it won’t matter a jot to your rank either way. Which sort of sucks the fun out of the game a bit but it is what it is. This is perhaps the first time since the initial Ronaldo days at Old Trafford, or maybe some of the latter Suarez ones since we had such a scenario.

It is for good reason though. We assume that most people reading this have at least a passing interest in watching some games or at the very least the highlights. For those who don’t, or even for those who do, but perhaps don’t necessarily appreciate what they are seeing; we all know Salah is wonderful, but we oft wondered if he had peaked. The answer to that so far this season has been an emphatic ‘NO’. He has clearly kicked on to another level, a whole different level. A level we are used to associating with the likes of Messi, that level when the best players seem to be playing a different game to the rest and everything looks so easy to boot.

All that said, he’ll probably blank this weekend now!

If anyone wants to give a coherent argument against picking Salah this week then please feel free to do so in the comments below. I’ll not hold my breath.

Vice Options
Potentially more pertinent though is the very small possibility that he gets a rest ahead of a midweek clash with Atleti in the Champions League. Personally I think this is highly unlikely and the more likely scenario is that he starts, Liverpool have the game in the bag and he bids us ‘adios’ after about an hour.

Just to be super sure though I think it will be wise to take your vice pick at least semi-seriously. I won’t go off on one quoting stats galore for a pick that you probably won’t need but instead, I’ll simply peruse the fixtures for the weekend and give you a bit of a rambling rundown on what I find…

The fixtures…

Hmmm. Initial thoughts here are that it may be slim pickings.

  • We have a potentially half-fit Vardy vs a slightly improving Arsenal.
  • Burnley won’t give much up against Brentford.
  • Foden is Man City’s top league scorer with 3 (Salah got 3 in 17 minutes vs Man United), so another run out at false 9 may be tempting vs Palace.
  • Chelsea ran amok last week and Mount’s hat-trick caught the eye but even Newcastle are no Norwich. His 3 put him joint top-scorer for Chelsea but Salah scored that many in 17…. you get the gist.
  • Watford vs Saints offers nothing.
  • Surely Man United won’t capitulate again and it is not as if Spurs have been pulling up any trees themselves.
  • A fit Raphinha vs Norwich sounds interesting, if he is…
  • Antonio vs Villa may be one of your better options.
  • Unless DCL returns you can forget Everton and Wolves haven’t looked much better. Or certainly not consistently enough anyway.

The confessional…
This is where we ask our entire writing team to tell us who they think they will pick this week… There are more caveats and get-out clauses than a Lionel Messi contract but this is their initial gut feeling based upon who they actually own.

DMC — Salah

Jamesimmo — Salah

Ivan — Trent

Swirly — Salah

Horse — Salah

    Hi all,

    I have a massive lukaku shaped problem here.. I’m at a loss who to bring in for him and prob lost a bit of money on him. But I refused to take a hit last week. Any suggestions would be welcome was thinking maybe Ivan Toney due to upcoming fixtures or maybe Jesus for city cover? Thanks in advance people

    A bit of a gamble, but Lukaku to Kane for gw12 (with a bit of cash), or Lukaku to Toney and Benrahma to Son (a hit?)?

    Should I sell Azpilicueta for Chiwell with -4?

    My first thought for my FT this week is Shaw>Chilwell. Could do Ronaldo>Kane as well. His little cry-baby stunt that should have been a red card last week is not sitting well with me. I’m not sure I want him in my squad, especially since he is underwhelming so far. Anyways thoughts about either of those moves or both for a hit or something else entirely?
