  1. Concerned over playing time/form of Gabbi , Rashford , Walker.
    Also Baines and Coutinho have no DGW. Thinking about 3 to 4 transfers since I am very comfortable in ML and just want 140+ score this GW to screenshot for ages. :P
    Also have my TC chip to use this week.
    Suggestions , please.

    • @fahad52 you could look at Kane instead of Rashford if you are not too sure of his game time! Although I feel Rashford could start both games as Europe tie will be out of the way by then!

      To help make that move, you could look at doing Walker > Yoshida and Coutinho > Pedro/Sane etc

      Alternatively, you could let Rashford be and concentrate on Walker + Fabio > Kompany/Koscielny + Yoshida
      Coutinho > Eriksen/Sane/Silva/Pedro/Fabregas is entirely upto you!
      Baines could stay as he has potential CS game!

  2. What is the best front three for the rest of the season…….Without Kane because i already have 3 spurs….Got Jesus, Costa and 9.4mil itb to change Luka….

    • @kushansamararatne

      Probably Gabbiadini –

      Neither Welbeck or Giroud are nailed on. Leicester have a tough DGW37 with Spurs and Man City to play. Man Utd will surely rest Rashford if they get through to the Europa Cup Final (2nd leg on Thursday, so maybe hold any transfer until after then).
      Sunderland, Watford and West Brom all have a DGW37, but their games are tough to varying degrees.
      Southampton v relegation certainties Middlesbrough and a (probably) understrength) Man Utd side would be my pick

  3. Defender advice. Was planning Cook and Kelly out for Yosh (4.5) and Huth (5.0) but with Gabriel losing his place, maybe sticking with Cook and moving on Gabriel is better.

    Cook and Kelly out gives me a budget of 9.5m.

    Could Aké could be an option if Chelsea smash it tonight?

    • @Footy123

      I doubt Ake will be played even if Chelsea smash it tonight.
      I think JT would be more likely to get a call-up, given that he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

      • @OldGoat thanks, Maybe

        Maybe @ChorleyRocks suggestion on post 110.1 above..

        Davies and Yoshida would be a better fit for Gabriel and Kelly.

  4. Early GW 37 options being considered.

    Do I do Walcott–>Albrighton and Vardy–>Kane or Walcott–>Albrighton and Holgate–>Azpili for double Chelsea defense.

    I have Son and Alli already, not sure how Spurs are going to react in their last few games.

      • @ChorleyRocks thanks that is my feeling as well, was going to do Son out but Walcott didn’t play at all…wish I had gone with Ox instead.

        My rival has no Chelsea defenders so could be the differential I need to make up the 40 point gap.

        • @ChorleyRocks I haven’t really looked past DGW players which is always dangerous. Chelsea will have sealed the title by then and a touch concerned they will rotate heavily.

          Cash is no longer an issue as I can do anything really, was considering Walcott to Sanchez and Son to Albrighton as well but not sold on Sanchez at the moment.

          Will wait until the end of the week anyways but its now or never.

      • @ChorleyRocks i’ve been thinking the same since they lost to West Ham.

        Last year the flopped at this point and i sadly think the same may happen again.

  5. Misses the GW 36 dead line so 2 FTs in the Bag.
    which combo suits better for the GW 37..
    1. Jesus + KDB + Kos (-4) for Kun + Alli + Cameron
    2. Costa + KDB + Monreal (-4) for Kun + Alli + Cameron

    • @Real lions i think options 1 just about shaved it. Only because Jesus has the potential to score more heavily than Costa i feel.

    • @Ted2007 Wait until after the Arsenal game later in the week. Gabriel may redeem himself. PS – no need to panic.

      • @Kralin
        I thought about that. But counter-point to your suggestion – even if Gabriel plays this week, there is no guarantee that he won’t be rotated in Gw37. Same for Blind (in my haste in selecting him I didn’t notice that Smalling and Jones were back)

        • @Ted2007 I’ve got Gabriel and am being philosophical about it. Hopefully he’ll play at least one of the week 37 games. Week 37 is a minefield at the best of times.

          My priority is the seriously misfiring Gabbiadini up front, with Costa favourite to fill his shoes (this would give me Jesus/Costa/Kane = not too bad); I was thinking of moving Coutinho along as well but have decided his two games could yield a decent return.

        • @Kralin
          I would agree with your moves. Gabbi’s startling form has deserted him and Liverpool is just too inconsistent. That draw with Southampton was painful to watch.

          Don;t know how much leftover budget you have after making the Gabbi to Costa move, but maybe try to get a Sane/Silva for Coutinho. Vardy could also be a tempting punt given his frankly amazing run of points.

        • @Ted2007 Good thoughts. I was thinking KDB for Coutinho, but have nagging worries about Man City rotation. However I also think West Ham won’t be ultra-defensive against Liverpool and Middlesbrough, hopefully, may have to come forward a bit too. So Coutinho may stay, I’ll weigh up all the options properly later in the week.

          And yes Vardy – I may punt on him in my B side.

  6. Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Fabregas, Matic, Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard.
    Subs: Begovic, Terry, Zouma, Ake, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Willian.
    Boro: Guzan, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Friend, De Roon, Clayton, Forshaw, Traore, Negredo, Downing.
    Subs: Dimi, Barragan, Bernado, Leadbitter, Guedoria, Bamford, Gestede.
