  2. Hello All, i need your wisdom to decide, please help me and my team.
    I am playing BB GW 37.
    Option 1. GW 36 carry forward free transfer
    then GW 37 Ward to Dummett/Lascelles & Gudmundson to Xhaka/Iwobi
    Option 1 gives me 15 x DGW players with no hit.

    Option 2. GW 36 Sanchez to De Brunye
    GW 37 ward to Dummett/Lascelles & Gudmundson to David Silva
    Option 2 gives me 15 x DGW players with -4 hits.
    Any other options most welcome,

    • @IvanTheTerrible 49 points (with bonus) in B team (which has outscored my main team) long time back and 3 city assets to go.
      As I missed the Lacaz transfer due to internet problem, pathetic 32 points from A team and now its all upto City.

    • @IvanTheTerrible

      Sane starts on the bench. Don’t you DARE bring him on for a 10 minute cameo Pep –
      I have a precious 6 points from Ings waiting to add to my meagre tally of 25 points. :fingerscrossed:

      Reckon Mendy will be one of the subs afforded a 10 minute cameo though as he strives to regain match fitness following the injury that has kept him out since GW6

      • @OldGoat
        I have Sane as well in my main team but all eyes are now on captain Jesus who has to get me out of this slump :superman:
        “Gabriel Jesus has had a hand in 22 goals in his 23 Premier League starts for Man City (16 goals, 6 assists), including a double against Swansea in February 2017 at the Etihad.
        Jesus is still yet to end on the losing side in any of those 23 starts (W20 D3) – since his first league start in February 2017, City have won 87 per cent of the matches when he starts compared to 69 per cent when he doesn’t”.

        • @IvanTheTerrible

          Dear God, please use your divine intervention to deliver a four goal haul for Jesus.
          My nearest mini-league rival has gained 23 points on me so far this week.

        • @OldGoat I feel like killing something as I went with Auba over Laca. My 4k rank is sliding. Thankfully all three of my Cty picks are starting. I also want a Jesus haul. Let´s pray together…

        • @Kumast

          At the last minute I swapped Arnautovic to Zaha. Then I played Zaha and benched Ings :angry:
          I have lost the plot!

  4. Now that we have seen the City lineup, can we think of anything close to 80% regarding whom PEP will start next week and 37 DGW? …or its all again from scratch?

    • @GoalMachine

      Walker and Otamendi’s game time looks in question.
      Ota started on the bench last week, whilst Walker had been benched the week before.

      As for the attackers – the only change from last week has been Bernardo Silva in for Sane. I think that Pep can’t decide which of those two works best behind Jesus.
      Of course I may be completely wrong again – I thought that David Silva would have been given time off to go back to his family in Spain!

      • @OldGoat With the league title sealed, I feel Bernardo Silva will get increased game time, worth a punt.

        Ota and Walker were probably rested today as they both played a lot of games.

        KDB has also played all season, earned the right to get some rest, and he isn’t completing full 90 minutes for the past 3 games (just got subbed by Yaya on 65th min)

        Sterling has had a lot of game time as well..David Silva may be given time off? We’ll have to see for any clues from Pep’s press conference.

        So I think players most at risk, in order:

        1. KDB
        2. Sterling
        3. Silva

        We should see more game time with Bernardo Silva and the likes of Sane as well.

    • @DLCFTW He missed a pen and denied an asist for starling, still i m happy , I don’t have Jesus :P

  5. City have used all 3 subs.
    There is still a slim chance that Jesus will score + Sane didn’t play, so I have 6 precious points coming off the bench. PHEW!

  6. Somehow I can’t see Jesus scoring – not even if he was out there for forty days and forty nights

    • @OldGoat
      I did say to someone on here that the score will be 5-0 with a hatty from Gabriel in it. Well, wrong buzz :P
      Shame I went with 3-0 in the prediction game.

      • @IvanTheTerrible

        I too went with a 3-0 scoreline.
        I have 3 correct results and no corrects scores with Everton v Newcastle to come.
        56 points from the Free Hit Chip with Baines to come isn’t exactly a great return.
        My main mini-league rival also played the Free Hit. He has 59 pts with Baines and Kenedy to come. So he has gained a minimum of 3 points on me this week.
        Being 50 points ahead, I can live with that. Just don’t want Kenedy running riot tomorrow

        • @OldGoat
          50 in the main team with whatever comes from Baines and Perez.
          65 in B team with only Baines. 11 points on bench from Barnes and Tomkins. Pretty average again, no fireworks :idunno:
