FF247 Fantasy Football Site Team GW6
No Hazard, no party, evidently! Seven of our players scored two points or less last week. Although that was a was fairly typical scenario, from looking around a bit. The identity of the other four probably dictated whether you had a stinker, an average week or a bonanza one. Our other four got 6, 9, 11 and 14 (c) so whilst not too shabby it still left us in the middle bracket. To excel last week one or more of them had to be Hazard or Fraser but unfortunately we had neither. We landed on 52 and whilst that was 5 above the average it saw us get the dreaded red arrows and a drop to 168k overall. Certainly one to brush under the carpet and move on swiftly from.
So will Hazard’s obvious form finally tempt us to move on from Salah? Or will we rip up our team in a knee jerk reaction and wildcard? Or will we simply decide on another genius move such as selling goalscorer Firmino for two pointer Vardy like last week?! Let’s go find out what the decision from the headquarters of the Cirque Du Solei of fantasy football discussions was this week…
Last Week’s Result
What have we done this week?
We’ve come to about six different decisions, basically! And at least three of those involved selling Salah. And yet we haven’t, ultimately. We only have one Liverpool fan on the panel and when asked about Salah he rated his chances of actually starting at “less than 50/50”. Which obviously sparked a fierce debate as to whether we should then simply sell him for Hazard. Six hours later, once the storm had calmed, he was asked to vote on the issue. And he declined to sell him! And then when pushed further on the issue still said he doubted he would play, but again wouldn’t commit to actually selling him. Confused much? We were a bit but it probably sums up all Salah owners feelings too. If he plays it’s a great fixture, in theory, if we knew he wouldn’t then Hazard in is an easy and understandable move. But we don’t know. and #LemsipGate doesn’t really clear the already muddy waters.
We decided to keep him, for now. Kane went through a similar spell not so long back and was sold off en-masse and then banged in back to back to hat-tricks out of the blue. That’s the thing with these ‘explosive’ players… they can explode at a moments notice. And it’s also why we exercise patience with them.
So what did we decide to do instead? Our midfield was beginning to look a bit barren, to say the least. Mkhitaryan starting in the Eurpoa League was probably the final straw for us as far as he was concerned. That on top of our 4th and 5th mids looking iffy at best meant that we needed a major overhaul in that department. And so we’ve set out on a path to correct our weaknesses and sold Mkhi for Fraser this week, with a view to selling Cairney next week for either Richarlison or Maddison. And it leaves funds for King to maybe Mtirovic or Zaha in our ‘blue sky’ future.
To confirm then, we’ve… SOLD Mkhitaryan and BOUGHT Fraser
The Team In Full…
CAPTAIN – AGUERO, VICE CAPTAIN – SALAH
Kun took the vote very easily, possibly on the back of our Liverpool fan and his Salah ‘uncertainty’. Aguero got rested midweek, in a fashion, but still came on late doors to show that he is is fit and available, we hope. It is Cardiff after all and with a bit of Pep rage in their sails after the midweek defeat you’d have to think that City may be motivated to prove a point.
