Well we have been presented some of the worst Saturday fixtures imaginable. Defenders are once again ruling supreme and goals are nowhere to be seen. Since things have become so dire we might as well chat right here! Bring on Super Sunday!

    29 points with Mignolet, Walker, Coutinho and Sturridge to come. How’s everyone else done?

    • Brayden says:

      Wow, a lot better than me.
      12 points with Mignolet, Walcott, counthino, RvP and Solado to come.
      Putting Dzeko captain was a mistake and David Silva didn’t do much FPL wise. Also left Whittaker on the bench!

  2. Brayden says:

    DZEKO! What was I thinking, might trade to Lambert next week. Anyone else under 7.8 for a foward?
    Thanks (and also David Silva got subbed off early, is this a worry?)

  3. Go You Gunners says:

    Well, Clyne is starting to really piss me off… and Mirallas? Hopeless

  4. Marcus says:

    On 33 with Mignolet, Coutinho, Walcott and Soldado to come

  5. Marcus says:

    Sould i Wildcard? If I do I want to do it as soon as the Arsenal vs Spurs match is finished before prices change.

    Team Before:

    Mignolet (Jakupovic)
    Zabaleta Coleman, Collins (Shaw, Chester)
    Silva Walcott Cotinho Miralles (Morrison)
    Soldado, Benteke, Van Wolfswinkel

    Team After:

    Mignolet (McGregor)
    Zabaleta Coleman, Walker, Enrique (Chester)
    Silva, Walcott, Ben Arfa (Brady, Ward-Prowse)
    Soldado, Benteke, Sturridge

  6. Shaun Curnow says:

    39 with Mignolet, Walker, Walcott, Sturridge & Soldado to come!

    Played wildcard last week and re-structered my team and now going be playing 4-3-3 due to bonus point system! I also put the big C on Zabaleta in hope of clean sheet and bonus points and he goes and gets an assist aswell…

  7. Tim says:

    Wildcarded couldnt deal with a shit team on 12 still got RVP (c) Soldado Toure Mignolet Coutinho.
    Need RVP Hatrick

  8. Dan says:

    44 with just Walcott and Soldado to come.

    Things learned this GW: dont be afraid to captain a defender this year.

    • mattcraigdt says:

      Still be very careful. Aluko doesn’t spud and miss that 1v1 and Graham puts one in the back of the net but just offside… Such tight margins! City concede and I’m sure you’re not making that claim

      • Dan says:

        For the record I captained Silva this week, so take my comment as any form of “gloating”

        Just that it seems a very viable option so far this year. (ALL my points this week are in defence)…the mids certainly arent getting the job done yet.

  9. mattcraigdt says:

    I’ve seen come pretty solid luck stories in my time. But Jack Colback hasn’t had a single goal or assist… Or bonus for 2 years. The amount of shit I gave my brother… nek minnit! Pure ass. I’m sitting fairly solid on 16 from 4, Reid my only failure. Still got Ramsey, Giroud, Soldado, Michu, Mignolet, Sturridge and Walcott (C)! Need a big Sunday…

  10. 28 points with 3 to play. Not a great week unless RVP destroys Liverpool.and Walcott steps up in the N. London derby. Might be looking to switch Augero for Negredo. He looks quality. But only after getting Benteke back in the team.

    What’s going on at Southampton? Shaw and Clyne both not playing? Weird. They’re your best defenders. Why on the bench?

  11. toasted1961 says:

    Lots of knee jerkers out there pushing Mirallas to lose value. I want to keep the wildcard for later so that will mean that I cant really trade in two weeks. That means watching some of my players loose value and other targets going up. My team is :

    Lescott, Coleman, Collins ( Chester Murner)
    Wally, Silva, Coutinho, Mirallas, (Morrison)
    Benteke, Soldado, Geroud

    I like the look of Hatem Afra. I want to get Dawson in defence .

    Do I need to wildcard or sit tight?

    Any advice?

    • baysietoff says:

      I feel your pain mate… I’m in a similar situation with Mirallas, I’m done with him. I’ll personally take a risk shortly on someone, just don’t know who yet! I’m very weary of Ben Arfa’s ability to play a decent stretch of games. I looked into it before and I think he’s averaged 20-25 games per season since he’s been in England. He’d need to prove to me he won’t get injured sneezing before I think about him.

      Don’t wildcard, that’s a solid team as is.

  12. Go You Gunners says:

    If I wildcard, when I save my transfers – can make more changes later on? Or is it finalised?

    G: Migs, )Boruc)
    D: Lescott, Coleman, Chester, (Clyne, Toure)
    M: Walcott, Silva,Coutinho, Mirallas, (Koren)
    F: Benteke, Soldado, Wolf

  13. Go You Gunners says:

    Geez, there aren’t many good options 7.5 and below in the midfield…

  14. N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5 says:

    Coutinho to Lamela might be done for me this week, a bit of research and reading some of the articles here might help me make that decision easier. But surely he replaces Bale!?
    Coutinho was good yesterday he just couldn’t make the final shot or the perfect pass, so i think its time. Also, Spurs do have kind fixtures coming up (other than Chelsea), in their next five Soldado and Lamela should get some returns! And maybe their defence is worth investment as well.

  15. Hero says:

    I can’t believe the amount of clean sheets so far this year. Surely the premier league will start to open up as they new managers gain confidence in their squads. I still think 3 attacking defenders are the way to go this year. I’d be wary of picking central defenders.

  16. kingcolesy says:

    Scraped to 44 par. I’ve wildcarded to keep me interested for the next two weeks 😀 and make some money hopefully.

  17. Brayden says:

    What a people’s thoughts on Hatem Ben Arfa? And also GO LIVERPOOL!

  18. Brayden says:

    And also forgot to say what a people’s thoughts on Jermine Pennant?

  19. Pennant cost me a heap of points, so now I really dislike him. Very disappointing week.

  20. Go You Gunners says:

    Best defender option 6.2 and below with good job security? Have Enrique Coleman and Walker already.

  21. Brayden says:

    Sau you make a trade now, can you reverse them during the week? Sorry for the stupid question.

  22. mattcraigdt says:

    You can follow all the deadline day action here–summer-2013.html?ito=feeds-newsxml. There will be a fresh blood wrap of everything that occurred sometime this week!

  23. Brayden says:

    Another rookie question, how come it says for my team that a player is a certain price but if other people were to buy him it says a different price.
    For example:
    For me on my team it says David Silva cost 9.2 but if you were to buy him now it would cost 9.4.

    Will it update for me later?

    • Pritchy says:

      This is because your team only gains half of the price they have rose (if that makes sense?)

    • baysietoff says:

      How much did you buy him for? Or did you start the season with him?

    • kingcolesy says:

      basically you bought him for 9.1, he gained .3mil, but transfer value only goes up .1mil once .2m has been gained from buy price. This can sometimes come to hit you back in the arse if you sell them then want them back, especially during this wildcard time. It sure did to me last year! 🙂

  24. Go You Gunners says:

    Ozil an option?? Where will he play? Also is Fellaini gonna play a more advanced role at MUN?

  25. Louie.K says:

    Fellaini didn’t got through. However, Lukaku to Everton is interesting. He’s back in the mix now.

  26. Louie.K says:

    Yeah I stand corrected. Last minute deal.

  27. Billy Bob says:

    Thoughts on possible transfers and wildcard opportunity?

    Mignolet (mannone)
    Coleman Ivanovic Collins Lescott (Chester)
    Coutinho Mirallas Silva (downing boateng)
    Soldaldo Giroud Sturridge
    1.4 in le bank

  28. boges11 says:

    When do Ozil and the others become available on the FPL lists?

  29. Go You Gunners says:

    Thanks Baysie and Matt. Who will be pushed out of Arsenal’s midfield for Ozil then?
