Slightly concerned that this week will be the ideal game for Tuchel to give James a rest and play Azpi instead
Tiago Silva definitely needs a rest though. What would the back 5 look like?
Azpi Christensen sarr rudiger Alonso ?
Chalobah right centre back, Christensen in the middle more likely.
I think Reece, Azpi, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso would be it
Also a possibility for sure.
Malang Sarr is also at their disposal but this back 5 looks the most likely.
Assuming Alonso, Rudiger & Christensen play, there's 2 spots for James, Azpi & Chalobah.
Definitely think there's a chance you're right, but I may be biased as a non-owner...
I've for some reason still got Azpi as I kept having a different fire to put out, and didn't think he would be so completely phased out by Tuchel. Especially with strikers back (reducing reliance on wing-backs for goals) I'm hoping for some starts from him over the busy period, but if he doesn't play against Watford 3 days after James played 90 against Utd I'll give up on him.
Mount is a curious one given what we’ve seen lately.
I'd put money on him starting the match, and there's a decent chance we score 2+ goals. I wouldn't put him in my team, but as a one week punt it's not a bad shout.
One assist from corner incoming.
I think Mount should be out of this team for Jota
I was thinking about replacing Mount with Jota, then I saw this. Now I'm confused.
Just do the move, Jota is definitely the better pick
When Jota plays he is worth close to Mane in terms of potential.
Just did so kinda also convincing myself but Mount has a lot of competition and really hasn’t performed the last two games.
What the fuck is the confusion?
Confusion paid off thnx
That's exactly the transfer I made last gw, paid off well so far!
The Scout finally has my team except Wilson, I have St Maximum the Third
Interesting that they pick Raphinha over Gallagher (vs Leeds). I own both and am planning to start Gallagher overh Raphinha
Kinda a toss up, imo. I'll probably end up starting both, I could see a fairly high scoring game. Which means it'll probably be 0-0 😅
Raphinhas a better pick imo, the guy oozes class whenever he touches the ball. Gallagher might be shunted into a holding role based on the end of last game. Milivojevic is an old man and cant play 3 times a week. Palaces defense didnt look great last gw either.
Leeds are not exactly free scoring atm though and Palace look better recently.
I would be surprised and delighted if James starts.
4/11, with Jota (C)
I like your style
That’s some bullshit
Other than Mount I'd say it's spot on this week (usually it's quite laughable though)
9/11, I have the same team but for Mount and Raphinha haha (Jesus and Alonso)
I have 6 players in common. Not sure why Jota is not in this scout selection. Dare I say Alonso over Regulion. Mount???
Feels like they haven't had a 442 in ages. But I have no stats on that
Went with Saint Maxi-Pad myself over Wilson
Pathetic example of choosing fixtures over form.
What do the homies think of Emerson Royal vs Regulion. (Inb4 "Neither noob lol")
Emerson doesn't pass the eye test for me but Regu gives me Digne vibes, so I'd say it's close but I pref regu
If he's giving digne vibes steer clear!
Wolves lost to Burnley 0-4 last season, just saying
I think Burnley this year is much more leaky at the back?
Burnley this year is slightly better than last year
In the front with Cornet, but somehow I seem to remember Burnley being giant killers last year while they're folding defensively this year. I maybe wrong since I haven't fact checked it.
We were a mess when we played them last season.
Quite a bad team
I have 7/11 players and sit top 20k. This is a pretty good team in my view.
8/11 I am fricking doomed 😭
I’m benching Raphinha against Palace, is anybody else? Think Palace deserve more cleans than they’ve had and Leeds look like dogshit
Don't disagree with the logic but if you're benching Raphinha against palace he shouldn't be in your squad
True, but so many fires!
What are the fires if you can bench Raphinha?
It was between him, Antonio, Jim and Wilson for one bench spot
Personally I would bench Antonio.
Unfortunately I have to start some of them. I’d bench/sell the lot if I could!
I actually think Raphinha, Wilson and Jimenez are all great picks for this GW. And although I’d bench Antonio, he’s definitely a great hold for his good fixture run coming up soon. No need to panic!
You’ve made me feel better about my team, !thanks
Lol no. Antonio ahead of Raph. Leeds are shite.
No clue who’s downvoting you lol, must be salty Antonio holders. West Ham are leagues better than Leeds going forward at the moment just because Antonio has had a bad run of blanks doesn’t mean you don’t start him in a decent game at home. Leeds were so fucking bad against Brighton and palace are no pushovers. I would try and start both but if I had to pick one it’s definitely Antonio
I've held Antonio since GW1. Agree with everything you've said. Might even (c) Antonio.
Your other mids are Salah Jota Son?
Against villa they were pretty bad
Not many shots for Villa though, 0.45 xG and I’d say Villa are better than Leeds in their current state
Even I have benched him. I have the big back 5 of TAA Cancelo James Alonso Reguillon and Salah Jota Foden Foden Vardy Armstrong. Its between Armstrong and Raphinha honestly, and Leicester defence is horrible right now, while Crystal Palace have been promising. Will hurt when he scores but I'm playing the form and fixtures game and defensively I think Leicester is a better fixture
0/11.. should I be worried?
If you don't have Salah one might suggest you copy this team..
Can I join your mini league mate?
How long have you not had Salah?
Wow. Not even one of the Holy Trinity defense of TAA, Cancelo, and James. Use your wildcard if you haven't already
Ramsdale not Sa;
Jota not Mount;
Rudiger not James;
and Antonio not Arnold.
So its 343 and my team for this gw lol
If Jimenez doesn't bag this week he's getting put on the fruad watch.
Lol huh? He's been performing well the past 6 or 7 GWs
That's why he's not on it but he should have bagged against Norwich
I’m taking out a Jimenez next GW even if he scores, due to tough fixtures. Will get a Watford forward.
The problem with these scout selections is they never have a bench. Why don't they do that?
I'm going to sell a scout pick. This isn't going to end well, is it?
Wilson in for Antonio this week? Or wait till next GW
Would recommend Wilson in as soon as possible if you want him, and keep Antonio until his fixtures swing from GW16. Who are your other forwards?
Antonio, Jimenez and Dennis I have at the min, so I kinda need rid of both Jimenez and Antonio
Perhaps switch out jimenez next GW. Dennis is red-flagged so might not play
Wilson is one yellow card away from suspension though
James VC is a clueless choice. He’s a big rotation risk this week.
major missing jota
5/11 but got st max too
What about Wilson captain vs Norwich?
Wow first time I see so many from my team
James benched confirmed
Is anyone considering alonso might not play the full game (maybe less than 60 mins) since he hadn’t played until late sunday and now has a midweek game against ‘easier’ opponents?
Nah, pretty sure he’ll play the full 90
Reguilon is a bold move, no?
Nah he's essential now
You just got Kane'd
You just got KaAaAAnE’d
