The bare necessities…
A relatively successful week, but one that somehow felt it should have been so much more… Our decision to captain Salah over Vardy cost us 11 valuable points, but we are at least grateful that we brought the latter in at all after his 16 point haul. Our score of 56 was alright – it was better than the average of 48 and saw us achieve the smallest of green arrows, for the second week in a row, to rest at 29, 423rd. However, its a win and we’ll always take a win. When it is stripped down, 48 of the 56 points came from just five of the players, with new recruit Vardy leading the party, while Hazard & Jimenez topped up our score late on with a goal apiece. Our 5-a-side team was made up of assisters Digne and Captain Salah. The rest of the mob can go do one – not even Fabianski could muster his usual 3pts. Which leads us on nicely to this week, and its reduced benefits….

Last week’s result…

Before we get going on this weeks decision we should remind you that;

This week’s transfer decision…
Going into BGW31 we have 1 free transfer, £3.3m in the bank and 8 players with an actual fixture this week.

We should begin by stating that we made our minds up last week that our chip strategy would (most likely) be; Build for BGW’s 31 & 33 together, FHDGW32, WCGW34, BBDGW35 and TC on a chosen single. Given as we have 8 already this week and 7 definites plus two ‘at risk’ for BGW33 we decided to bring in a couple of players who will feature in both weeks, and lose a couple who won’t, therefore plumping our numbers up for the blanks to 10 and possibly 11 respectively.

The decision itself was very straightforward and a bit route one. With no double Liverpool defence to block our path to the man of the moment we felt that bringing in Mane was a no-brainer. Alongside him we felt we needed some Bournemouth coverage and so Callum Wilson joins the party too.

We should also say that we did consider an extra hit for a defender so that we could field a full 11, whilst invoking the (admittedly flaky) -2 / 0 rule. We ended up deciding not to because the only teams we felt had any real potential in terms of returning a clean sheet were West Ham and Bournemouth. Trouble with both would have been fitting them into our BGW33 team, plus West Ham run into Chelsea in that one and we already own Fabianski. Bournemouth were seriously considered but we still concluded that Newcastle would most likely score and so decided to leave it be.

To confirm then we have SOLD Pogba and Jimenez & BOUGHT Mane and Wilson

Our Captain is Mane, our Vice is Salah
Salah did get one vote, but even that came with an “I think…” attached to it. Mane took the rest for another stress free decision. He’s pretty hard to ignore given the form he is in at the moment, no further explanation required on that one Your Honour.

Our team in full…

Planning Ahead…
The below is how we now look for the GW’s ahead. Built nicely for this and BGW33 we intend to use our Free Hit for the DGW next week.

    I’m going with FH chip this week. Any thoughts? Perhaps Rudiger -> Luiz?

    Is there any defender worth a -2 for this week? I’m looking at Luiz but I think Everton will score, still, would be nice to get 11 this week for just -2 and I’d use that player in GW33 as well as I only have Bednarek to fill the full 11 in GW33, he’s against Liverpool then so don’t wanna play him, but I can always get that player in for free with a FT in GW33… So which def, if any, is worth a -2 for this week only? :)

      Same dilemma here. I’m more leaning towards playing 10 in 31 and use the FT in 33 now.
      In your case if I brought someone it would be Luiz. He has West Ham at home in 33. And Everton won’t score ;)

      I think given that West Ham have the best odds of a CS then they would be pick, given his ability to nab a goal then Declan Rice seems the obvious pick.

      • Zed Leppelin says:

        The problem with that is that I have Fabianski already and I’d need that player in GW33 as well and they have Chelsea away in GW33, that’s why I’m leaning towards going with 10 now and getting Luiz for free next week… It’s a pickle though…

        • Frenchie says:

          Zed, in another thread I did the math for you, I don’t know if you saw it :)
          Basically it’s almost a 50/50, getting Luiz for a hit should have a very slightly higher expected result.
          I’m in a similar position with Azpi, I think I’ll wait and play 10 in 31.

    I’m planning on doing the following: Pogba and Milivojevic to Mane and ?
    I’m thinking Harvey Barnes, but not 100% on it. I’ve 5.7m to spend.
    Any other recommendations? Thanks guys.

    Hi all,
    Hope you are well.

    FH on GW 32. Currently I have now 9/11 fielding for this gw due to schar getting suspended. I have already done a -4 to switch Salah out for Mane after another disappointing performance by him.

    I am wondering if it is worth taking an additional -4 to get perhaps Wilson in for Aguero. Though I have quite a lot of value from him. Alternatively thinking about getting a CHE defender in (Luize or Azpili)

    Thanks for any help.

      It depends how much Value you have in Aguero and if that would affect your plans for GW32, if it’s just 0.2ish I’d probably make the move myself, others are more frugal on their hits so may think -4 is enough!

    “Leaked” CL draw results :p
