Firstly if you’re new to the site my last 4 seasons overall ranks are 17k, 36k, 17k and 21k.
GW26 after Sunday
GW26 points so far: 57 -4 (FPL average 41) Total points 1,694, Overall Rank: 34k, green arrow 3k. Team Value: £104.4m
I’ve used my Free Hit Chip and in GW26 are using the Bench Boost Chip
Here’s the points after Sundays games:
Along way to go in the gameweek but a return on the Bench Boost of 6 points plus whatever Pope gets against Leicester is hardly maximising the use of it. Still I’m not the only 1 in that boat. Unfortunately you just never know what you’re going to get from Leeds.
I’m relaxed about the transfer out of Son that I did for this gameweek. It was a case of needs must. Unless I had taken out Salah or Fernandes which I wasn’t prepared to do at the time there’s no way I could have afforded Kane and he was a priority given that he was a big captain favourite in a double gameweek with good fixtures.
For me there were 3 worry players for me this week due to their potential affect on my rank. Barnes, Watkins and Son. Barnes is now injured. Son really hurt with 11 points and Watkins not too bad with 5 points. Son now plays Fulham and Watkins Sheffield United so still pain to go unfortunately.
Looking like my Bench Boost is firmly at the bottom of the expectation schedule. I still have a wildcard and a triple captain to use.
Spurs v Southampton still has to be rearranged as does Villa v Everton.
The Spurs rearrangement could mean a triple captain for Kane depending on the Europa League progress and top 4 ambitions.
The most logical place to Wildcard will be GW30 I think after the blank GW29 which only has 4 fixtures
1 free transfer and £0.00m in the bank.
A Man City and Southampton double gameweek this GW27 although given that Southampton play Man City it pretty much negates the benefit of it for them
It’s not a great gameweek for my team that’s for sure given the lineups which you’ll see in the graphic below.
But first GW29
If my objective is to set my team up for the big blank GW29 which only has 4 fixtures and then wildcard in GW30 the players that are in scope at some stage to be transferred out as they don’t have GW29 fixtures are:
Cancelo, Dias, Gundogan, Shaw, Fernandes, Salah and Calvert Lewin. 3 of these can obviously be on the bench in GW29 rather than be transferred out. If I use my wildcard in GW30 obviously I can buy any of the players back then. Just need to check sale vs buy back price.
I have for GW29 the following players Martinez, Dallas, Coufal, Lookman, Raphinha, Bamford and Kane. If I add 3 for GW29 that will give me 10 players.
Here’s the GW29 fixtures with additional potential players to get in Brackets. I then talk about how they could be integrated into the team vs the player going out.
Fulham v Leeds (no one)
Brighton (Dunk) v Newcastle
West Ham (Antonio) v Arsenal (Saka, Aubameyang)
Aston Villa (Watkins) v Spurs (Son, Reguilon/Aurier)
So, Brighton play GW27 Southampton and GW28 Leicester so not a great time to transfer them in
West Ham play Leeds and then Man Utd. GW27 would be a good time to get Antonio and Calvert Lewin plays Chelsea. GW28 Calvert Lewin plays Burnley though. There still remains a possibility that the previously postponed Aston Villa v Everton could go into GW28 which makes selling Calvert Lewin tricky.
Arsenal play Burnley and Spurs. GW27 could be a time to make a transfer but I only have funds for Holding or Mari to take Shaw’s place and who knows who will start with the Pep wannabe Arteta in charge. Too early to ditch Fernandes or Salah I think for Aubameyang or Saka
Villa play Wolves and Newcastle so a good time potentially for Watkins but again Calvert Lewin is the only target. That’s helpful for this week but not particularly for GW28 especially if the Everton double comes along.
Spurs have a great fixture against Palace in GW27 but Arsenal in GW28 but to get Son I would have to sacrifice Salah ( v Fulham and Wolves) or Fernandes (Man City and West Ham). I don’t have the funds this week for a Spurs defender unless I go for Dier who didn’t start v Burnley.
So much to ponder.
It could end up with me just carrying over the free transfer and using 2 in GW28.
Interesting 1 this. I’ve pretty strictly gone with the Polls and given City play twice then Gundogan or maybe Cancelo look the obvious targets. Never easy with Pep rotating the squad.
The Captain Poll will come out after Wednesday’s Man City game
This is tricky as there are so many bench candidates.
Despite United’s bus parking it’s hard to see Shaw in the lineup but none of Coufal or Dallas (especially now if he’s an LB again) give me confidence.
I’ll go back to the bookies for the lineup to avoid the decision agony myself. I’ve fixed it in the graphic below without giving it much thought.
The lineup assuming no transfer is made
Hope the gameweek is going well for you
