A lucky touch of genius
“We have decided to simply bend over and take whatever Pep gives us, good or bad”. That was a quote from last week in relation to buying Aguero. Turns out he was in a giving mood! Two transfers and four goals; you could be forgiven for thinking we may be a bunch of geniuses, but anybody who actually read how we arrived at last weeks decision to bring in Kun and captain him will know very differently! It wasn’t an entirely unplanned birth in the end, but our intentions did start out very differently, let’s just say the condom broke and leave it at that…

An 8th green arrow in a row sees us up to another season high of 21,336th, a rise of about 10k. Kun obviously did his bit, as did Son, elsewhere Jimenez starred with a 9, Pogba got a sublime assist, as did Doherty (less sublime though!) and Wan-B and Shaw did their bits with clean sheets. The rest simply made up the numbers to see us end up on a fairly respectable 88 points, 23 above the average.

Last week’s result…

This week’s transfer decision…
We go into this week with 1 free transfer and £0.3m in the bank. We have to have an eye on the blanks ahead in GW27 of course, and to that end we are without Digne, Sane and Aguero for that one as we stand. Let’s go see how we plan to juggle that with the need for actual points this week….

It was a fairly simple and unanimous decision this week, there are no tales of incompetence or internal struggles to regale you with this week, unfortunately. As much as Aguero was a welcome addition last week, and as much as he served his purpose, we are nothing if not ruthless in our pursuit of points and quite simply Aubameyang suits us perfectly this week in that respect, on more than one level. He has the better (arguably the best; see Huddersfield) fixture and he’s a bit of a flat track bully against this sort of opposition; it’s difficult not to offend somebody along the line when you say this but he has 24 points against Fulham and 20 against Cardiff over two games and double digits against Burnley and… Spurs.


Our Captain is Mo Salah
New recruit PEA was well and truly in the mix here but Mo just edged him by the finest of margins. It could be that Bournemouth’s form against the ‘big 6’ swayed the vote; 8 games, 7 defeats, 22 conceded, and in some of those games heavily so. Or it could be the memory of what Salah did to them last time. Or it could be that we just think Liverpool may suddenly reawaken and kick on again and that this feels like the sort of fixture in which that may happen. Or it could all just be pie in the (blue) sky thinking. For the record, our one Liverpool fan voted for Aubameyang!

    Hi All, thanks for the articles this week!
    I used a FT already this week to bring in Son for Hazard and now have a another FT left with 2m ITB. My original plan was to bring in Auba for Aguero but with Aguero’s home form and now illness to Auba I’m considering waiting until next week to do this move.
    A. Aguero to Auba
    B. Roll FT and do option A next week
    C. Ederson to Fabianski with GW27 in mind and do option A next week
    D. Richarlison to Pogba (probably leaves me without a keeper for GW 27 unless taking a hit)

    Ederson (Button)
    Robbo, Doherty, Digne (Bednarek, Wan B)
    Salah, Son, F.Anderson, Richarlison (Hojbjerg)
    Aguero, Rashford, Jimenez

    I have Sane, Son, Pogba & Salah. 0.2mil ITB & 1FT. Thinking of swapping Sane for Mane or……. should I just keep him for GW26 and transfer him out prior GW17?

    EBC says:

    Thoughts on my squad for next 3 GWs? 1ft, 1.6itb

    5 missing in GW27
    Need a better cap in GW27 (Auba/Laca?)
    Defence is mince in GW28

    Pretty sure Aguero will come out either this week or next, what would your approach be with the above in mind?

      Rosco says:

      I’d probably do Aguero to Aubamayang either this week or next and if TAA returns this week Digne to him with one eye on BGW31. I’d probably also take a -4 if you don’t have 11 next week and do Richarlison to Anderson

      • EBC says:


        I had similar thoughts. Auba in this week or next. Richarlison out for Anderson/Milivojevic GW27 (and bench Redmond). TAA in for Trippier GW28.

        Alternatively, considering Pereira in for Digne (or to a lesser extent Luiz) GW27.

        Will see how the cup plays out but looking at free hit for GW31.

    MrMajeika says:

    Really can’t decide whether to hold on to sane and give him one more chance to redeem himself or just sell him for mane. Or Anderson even and then I will have an easy route to getting rashford. 1ft 0.7m itb. Also play awb over bednarek?

    ChrisOllie25 says:

    So I listened to a few managers on here who said don’t waste a transfer on Aguero. Keep Aubameyang. I should have gone with my own instincts. So thank you all. I am hoping for a big and better GW. I hope Salah captaincy will work. I brought in Son for Sane, who btw was my captain last week

    “The Egypt Football Association have confirmed that Mohamed Salah will not be called up to the squad for their March internationals.
    The African nation are set to take on both Nigeria and the Niger Republic in two African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier matches.

    Now, vice-president of the country’s football body Ahmed Shobier revealed that Liverpool’s star man will not be invited to play in the games taking place on March 22 and 26.
    -Mohamed Salah will not play the Niger game in the AFCON qualifiers or the Nigeria friendly,” the EFA vice president told KingFut.

    The Reds take on Fulham on March 17 and Tottenham on March 31 so keeping the winger at Melwood and not having to deal with travelling to Africa should be a positive for Jurgen Klopp.”
