  1. Would love some wisdom, thoughts, advice on which team looks best:

    Jones/[Mee]/Daniels/ (Gomez bench)

    Kane/Aguero/ (Niasse bench)

    Kane/Morata (Niasse bench)

    Can move sterling to Salah or Harzard for example in 2) + 3)

    Thank you very much :)

    • @roccerfeller

      Team 1 looks the most potent, although you should list all your bench players as well.

      With regards to teams 2 & 3 – what is the intention for the sackfull of money you have left over?

      • @OldGoat

        Bench players are Carroll and fodder in each case (non playing I.e. Heunemire). The $ left over is if there’s any suggestions on how to improve those teams, how much I can work with. For example bringing in other bench options or Salah. Im open to any suggestions.

        3-4-3 vs 4-4-2 and any improvements in either configuration

      • @OldGoat

        Team 3 would have the potential to be a 3-5-2

        Pope (Elliot bench)
        Azpi/ Jones/ Daniels (Gomez, Hunemire bench)
        Sterling/ Sané/ Gros/ Richarlison/ Salah
        Kane/ Morata (Niasse bench)

        My hope would be to get sterling out for Pogba in the future as well. I would also consider bringing Kola in when Arsenal’s fixtures then favourable for Daniels down the road

        This option is enticing but I don’t know if it’s smart

    • @roccerfeller considering Salah’s production and form and ownership at the moment, I would definitely support attempting to incorporate him into one of these options. But as for the lineups you’ve provided, number one is my favorite. But I would certainly emphasize one uncertainty within the side, and that would solidifying Azpi’s place in your squad. The Morata/Azpi linkup is irresistible atm imo

      • @Wallace F.C. yes very good point

        Team 1 is the closest to what I have right now. I have Alonso and can swap him for Azpi and keep most of the team the way it is But will only have 0.2 ITB if I do that and no way to bring in Salah

        Team 2 vs 3 is basically choosing Morata vs Aguero

        Any thoughts on 5 midfielders? I could run a 3-5-2 with Salah in for Carroll and Kane/Morata up top. It’s risky but I’d have the funds for that.

        • @roccerfeller sorry, I must have missed this comment, mate. In regards to midfielders, why not keep one of the 2 City boys and then take a punt on a mercurial element such as the increasingly-looking-like-he’ll-be-fit Pogba

  2. Def formation now : Ward/Stones/Ben Davies/Gomez/Dunk. Want to replace Davies with other. Open for all suggestion. Thanks in advance. Enough for Spurs rotation…. :lolflag:

  3. I don’t have Salah at the moment which has cost me quite a bit. A few of the managers in my mini-league have him and I am chasing. Should I instead go for Mane as a differential or go with Salah as it is still early in the season. I’m tempted to go with Mane but what is holding me back is that he doesn’t get a lot of bonus points. Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

    • @Zlatan

      I would go with Salah. He is getting more points that Mane + it is still early in the season. best to hang on to the coat-tails of the leaders, rather that risk getting cut adrift (as long as you have a few differentials in your side that are earning you points)

    • @Zlatan
      Salah for now then try and put the squeeze on when people start drifting in and out of alcohol-induced unconsciousness over the Xmas period. Play some mind games with your mini-leaguers. Say ‘the best wildcard I ever played was after a 4-pack of Special Brew’. Tell them there’s a secret ‘Santa’ chip that only happens if you take a -24 hit for players who wear a red kit on Xmas Eve.

  4. @Zwischenzug @KeyserDoze Yes you right :thumbup: I must give time for Lewin and Niasse. I will watch them closely. Thanks mate.. Its character from beginner…lack of patience. I better focus to my def first to face GW 13
