For the record, this is how I went…

Score: 75 (-8)
Lords: Michu, Sturridge, Benteke, Giroud, Clyne
Losers: Brady, Walcott
Captain: Benteke
Trades: Lescott -> Enrique
Vent/Brag: Set myself up with last weeks hit, no need for panic this week!
Other Comments: Be very careful when chasing the flavour of the week (yes that’s becoming a new segment in transfer talk). Guys like Hernandez won’t always pay off!

Hopefully you all did reasonably well, I think anything around 60 was very solid this week. I’ll have a fresh transfer talk for you guys tomorrow, until then! Cheers.

    Score: 76
    Lords: Giroud, Benteke, Ben Arfa, Ozil, Wilson, Coleman, Zabaleta, Hernandez (for not playing)
    Losers: Walcott, Bent, Ivanovic, Enrique
    Captain: Giroud
    Trades: I used me wildcard last week, happy with that.
    Vent/Brag: Pretty lucky this week I reckon. Originally had Bent on my field, first bench player was Hernandez (who pulled out, not sure what happened), which let loose Wilson (with a nice 7 points) onto my field. Winning!!!!
    Other Comments: Pretty much sums it up I think…

    Vent/Brag:Oh dear. I was going to sell Silva for Michu or Coutinho. I chose Coutinho.

    Vent/Brag: Moved up nearly 100k in ranks this round alone, currently 73, 000ish. Content…. For now 😉
    Other Comments: Could have had an extra 8 points!!!! Had i not paniced and traded Ozil and Sturridge out because of injury concerns 🙁
    Worth taking a hit for Sturridge you think? ‘Pool vs the Saints at home, DEFINETLY!!

    • N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

      Also, it just baffles me how Everton can keep out Chelsea’s star-studded attack and score their own, but cant seem to score against newly-promoted Cardiff and messed-up WBA.

      • baysietoff

        I’ll try and answer that mate… We don’t do well against teams that sit back and defend, it’s the major flaw in Moyes’ style of play as Everton manager. It’ll be different as Man Utd gaffer, he’s expected to win now as opposed to not lose so will put more players forward.
        Far too often our striker was left isolated with no support, or on a wing or a channel when he should be in the box… Although Bobby is now boss, it’s going to take time to turn that around, a heap of new players helps! You can tell players what to do but it doesn’t happen overnight. Also Pienaar has been below par since he came back from Spurs, Naismith playing gave us something different… A physically stronger performance I guess and the desire to get into the 6 yard box to add numbers. Which is needed when the other wing has Mirallas who doesn’t chase back much and tries to dribble around the outside of the box and take shots or stick to the wing. Barkley did a lot more work off the ball than he has done in previous games too. And lastly, Fellaini was becoming a bit of a liability for us towards the end. Garry Barry gave a fantastically assured performance and may turn into one of the more inspired loan signings in the history of the EPL… Oh and a bit of luck helps 😀 P.S. David Luiz isn’t a defender’s arsehole too and he cost them the goal.

        • N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

          I enjoy reading toffee banter, especially when they know what they are talking about! Moyes not doing too well as new Man U manager though, needs to adapt first and hence why I dont think we will do too well this season.
          Agree with Fellaini, you guys relied on his strength and fro too much. Anichebe was good for you guys I recon, but I can’t wait to see Deulofeu! Such a great talent!
          Lol I recon Cechs snail like movement was worse, a four year old has better reactions than that!

          • baysietoff

            Thanks mate! Utd will be fine, Sir Alex is still pulling the strings haha.
            I do feel for Cech though, a keeper needs to feel confident with the defenders in front of him.

          • N1qQ45 4R3 K1nG5

            Yeah I know right! I always see Sir Alex in the stands, his probably some now communicating with Moyes haha.
            They have good defenders, they just aren’t performing as well as they should! They just need David Luiz to match his FUT 13 card and go OP!

    Captain: RVP
    Trades: Done Hernandez to Ramsey, would of done Barfa but cant afford
    Vent/Brag: Last minute trades were Ozil Zab and Sturridge to Whittaker, Walcoot and RVP. Not flash.
    Other Comments: found a mate on Saturday night who plays it, casual as. Has way better ranking than me and casually slots Sturridge on bench, and has Giroud as captain. First 15mins at the pub with the Gunners game on, nekminit we see his Captain score and Im in disbelief how much hes owning me.

    Comment: I think my forwards are done, really think Walcott and Mirallas should have scored and will fire soon…

    Hows the team?

    Trades: Hernandez to someone before I lose the value I gained out of him.
    Vent/Brag: All of my defenders got clean sheets. Only played 4/5 of them though. My W/C seemed to be a success except for Hernandez.
    Comment: Pretty happy with my side atm. Just a matter of getting the mid pricers in the mid right and I’ll be pretty set.

    Vent/Brag: After pumping out 100 the first week my team has been on a steady decline and i am struggling to generate any points from midfield or the strikers.
    Other Comments: Pulled the wildcard and already feel better. My team looks so much better with RVP, Ozil, Ramsey, Ben Arfa. Is sigurdsson the real deal? He was amazing on the weekend!

    Mignolet, Baruc
    Fonte, Coleman, Ivanovic, Mertesacker, (Whittaker)
    Coutinho, Mirallas, Hazard, Walcott (Thomas)
    Giroud, Soldado (Anelka)

    thinking of using WC
    Hazard- Ramsay, Anelka- Benteke/Sturridge, Mertesacker- Jose Enrique, Countinho- Eriksen, ivanovic- zabaleta

    is this going too far? any better suggestions?

    Taking a -4 point hit for next GW and I’m playing a head-to-head league. Hopefully Rooney transfer pays off coz my upcoming opponent has Persie and Giroud.
