My GW7 Team

Chihuahua's Team, Uncategorized

Week 6 wasn’t great and before it began I didn’t think I’d be relying on a clean sheet from Mee to help save my week. I scored 73 (-4) in a week that saw the average at 45 which wasn’t too shabby at all. Captain pick was pretty spot on and my Arsenal boys came back in to form.

My immediate transfer this week was Bony out. Mark Hughes hasn’t exactly been praising his work rate and play so far and he has disappointed. His replacement is Defoe who last week made it in to the top ten BPL scorers list of all time. He’s a quality player that will always score goals and despite Sunderland looking awful he is the sort that when he gets a chance scores more often than not. He’s already netted 4 this season and plays against WBA, Stoke, West Ham, Bournemouth and Hull in 5 of his next 6 games.

My team selection was pretty straightforward with the hardest decision being between Love, Mee & Amat. I opted for the former because even though he’s not a regular I’d rather. A point from him than a potential minus score from Mee or Amat who could concede big numbers is my punt even though Mee did me proud last week.

Captaincy was a tough one, everything is telling me to go for Aguero. His form and his ridiculous record against Spurs means he will be a popular pick yet again and for a good reason. Alexis is another who has been playing up too and been playing rather well lately. But I’ve gone for Lukaku. Before you laugh too hard let me make my case; Aguero blanked midweek and Spurs will provide a tougher task. As for Alexis he could be shifted wide or start from the bench (even though I doubt either). As for Lukaku, he’s rested midweek, he plays a Palace side who aren’t that solid at the back & they’ll be without their captain Dann. It’s a risk early on but hey, ho. Good luck all.

My GW6 Team

Uncategorized

GW5 was full of shambles. My keeper and back line failed me again. Saying that Lukaku did me proud again so it could’ve been worse even though I believe Bony should’ve been awarded an assist for that Arnautovic goal. This week I had two free transfers and I had to get Kun back and sign Capoue due to his form and upcoming fixtures. I have decided to ditch Benteke because Bony has better games going forward even though they’re both crap right now. A spanner in the works as Masuaku was injured and I don’t want to play Amat as they’re up against City. As a result I took my first -4 this season to replace him with the attack minded Clyne based on fixtures and form. As Masuaku has been so bad since I got him in I’m not too fussed ditching him.

My team this week picks itself with Amat playing City being my last sub and Mendy not yet fit. My hardest decision was Cech or Pickford but I opted for the former. Captain is the returning Aguero. Good luck all 🙂

Last week had so much optimism but that soon faded; early doors my back 3 and keeper all played and totalled just 3 points. Add to that four points from my midfield 3 I wasn’t expecting much at all; in fact I was preparing for an awful week. 

However it did turn around and my captain pick Lukaku was in an inspired mood scoring 3 and making more than the other 10 in my team combined. I scored 59 all in with an average of 43.

No transfers as planned and a pretty straightforward team, Mee is replaced by Amat for the only change. I was planning on captaining Alexis this week but with the form last week it has to be that man; Lukaku again.

My GW4 Wildcard Team

Chihuahua's Team, Uncategorized

GW3 started with such hope but ended in disappointment with so many players blanking. I scored just above the average and in the international break I activated my wildcard for the following reasons;

1. Kun ban.

2. Townsend/Redmond blanked again.

3. Stones is not a solid option at the back.

4. Hull signed a new keeper who should be their number one.

5. The Smith I had from Bournemouth isn’t a starter.

6. The return of Payet.

7. The impact on Arsenal with Alexis & Ozil back.

8. Simpson is a player I want to ditch.

So I made THIRTEEN CHANGES and believe my team is set up the best I can till November. 

Starting from the top, Cech is the cheapest route into the Arsenal back line with their amazing run. Evans in a Pulis team is always a solid pick, Mee is in for three games and Masuakau is a very attacking player with a great run and an assist already to his name.

In midfield Hazard is a player I am keeping from the start. Ozil & Alexis are in for two great games and a good run. Payet I think will become a must have and with that run I need to own him. 

Up top Lukaku was the first name I wanted with his potential and fixtures. Same goes for Bony & Benteke; following their club transfers both for me are great options.

On the bench Pickford comes in for Jak as he’s more nailed on, Mendy is injured now but at 4.4m he will be a start for the champions and is expected back before GW6. Amat and Love are the closest things to nailed on bench players for around 4m. I’m not planning on using my bench players much if at all.

I don’t have City cover but I have a plan to get Kun for one from Benteke/Bony and downgrading one from my midfield in two weeks when he’s back. I’ve made some ballsy moves the hardest of which was dropping Zlatan. Yes he’s in great form and yes I believe he will score in the Derby BUT selling him allows me to have Payet and Alexis for now who I believe will score more points and are more essential.

I WANTED Spurs coverage and Everton cover at the back but I couldn’t fit it all in. This is the best that I would do with what I had.

There are a lot of moves that many wouldn’t do but this game is about risks and fun. Monday night captain is Rom because I’m a fan and even though he’s sporadic his record speaks for itself.
