Round Review – GW12

Reading Time: 1 minute

Well that could have gone worse I suppose! If you didn’t have a big forward line then you were in trouble, and how were the top 3 captains just quietly! I think it proves that there’s no point in looking anywhere else with Suarez and Aguero 2 of the in-form players in Europe. Let us know how you fared in the following format:

Rank (Overall):

Other Comments:

Score: 57
Rank (Overall): 10k
Lords: Aguero, Suarez, Sturridge
Losers: Nasri, Ozil, Figueroa
Captain: Suarez
Trades: After making none last week I’m looking at Nasri -> Walcott until Silva returns, and Shaw -> Nastasic if fit. Kicking myself for not picking Hazard when I had the chance, but I think the short term boat has sailed.
Vent/Brag: Not much for me to brag about this week, good captain picks!
Other Comments: After next week the games will come thick and fast, so don’t just plan your trades for one or two gameweeks ahead. Plan a month ahead! More on that later in the week…

I hope you all fared as well, if not better than me! With the hectic Christmas period closing in the excitement builds. Football is with us to stay!

    Lords: Lukaku, Suarez, Cabaye and Gabbidon
    Losers: Ozil, Ramsey and Fonte
    Captain: Suarez
    Trades: Nasri to Hazard or Sturridge to Aguero. Need to make a call. Could do nothing and go bang the next GW also if I decide against it.
    Vent/Brag: Happy with my Lallana to Cabaye trade. Almost did Lukaku to Remy as well for a hit, but held off. Good call in hindsight.

    Lords: Suarez, Rooney, Lukaku, Oscar
    Losers: Distin, all Southampton players, Rangel
    Captain: Rooney
    Trades: Lovren -> Mertesaker, have another trade stored away so thinking about Ozil for Gerrard to make some cash.
    Vent/Brag: My defence was terrible and all the southampton players look shot but my big names in the mids and fwd line helped me this week.

    Other Comments: confused whether Rooney is worth it over Lukaku(who i bought at 7.4) for the long run. I dont think it is, plus i’d have to use 3 trades to get there..

    Score: 60 and Vlaar to play
    Rank (Overall): 30k>50k after this week
    Lords: Rooney, Suarez
    Losers: Mirallas first bench
    Captain: Rooney
    Trades: I am looking at taking a four point hit and going Yaya Toure> Brady & Lambert>Aguero
    Vent/Brag: Can’t believe I benched Mirallas
    Other Comments: I am 2 points behind my opponent in my main league. Vlaar cs would change that. An ordinary peformance means a draw. A poor performance means a loss…..

      • stevenfsexton

        bit concerned about brady’s gametime on the weekend, u reckon he is just being eased back into the system? if i dont go brady i will just get ravel……hmmm

        • stevenfsexton

          my team this week:

          zab, terry, vlaar (coleman, dawson)
          lallana, januzaj, toure, ramsey (mirallas :()
          lambert, rooney, suarez

          if i did that -4 point hit, i would field 4 def, bench lallana and play ravel….

          • supajeff

            Good plan man!! Ravel is a worry as West Ham look shaky without Reid the enforcer down back, big blow for West Ham man, big blow. You sometimes have to take a 4 point hit to stay ahead of future issues.

    Score: 59 (with Berahino)

    Rank (Overall): 32,950

    Lords: Remy, Rooney, Hazard, Yaya, Zab

    Losers: Walker (massive -2!), Ozil, Coleman, Ramsey

    Captain: Remyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

    Trades: Thinking Barkley to Coutinho (only have 8.8 & Gerrard is 8.9)

    Vent/Brag: This game is tough sometimes, can be flying then all sudden nothing goes your way!

    Losers: Baines, Boruc
    Captain: Rooney
    Trades: Waiting on Baines injury news, may do Baines> Vlaar to cash up
    Vent/Brag: Happy with bringing Coutinho in last wk, spewing I chose Silva over Hazard a few weeks back. Hazard has dominated since. Also Im the reason Ramsay has stopped scoring, sorry all.

    Lords: Suarez, Lukaku, Aguero
    Losers: The rest.
    Captain: Suarez
    Trades: Wilson > someone and Shaw/Rangel to someone else
    Vent/Brag: Held Lukaku this week thank goodness. He’s earned himself a few weeks longer.

    Lords: Aguero, Oscar, Suarez, Remy, Koscielny, Terry
    Losers: Brady, Shaw

    Trades: last game week i bought in remy in for rooney to free up some funds and went lovren –> terry for a hit which paid off.
    Vent/Brag: switched my captain from aguero to remy last minute for a differential that didn’t pay off.

    Captain: Rooney
    Trades: Rangel to Terry probably
    Vent/Brag: Was gonna go with Suarez as captain originally, but then switched to Rooney and bagged myself an extra 4 points lol
    Other Comments: I remember at the start of the season we were all frothing at the state of the defences, clean sheets left, right and centre, look at us now….

    Rank (Overall): 9k
    Lords: Mert, Mirallas, Hazard, Suarez, Studge, Aguero
    Losers: Ramsey
    Captain: Suarez
    Trades: None. Saving FTs for mid-December when the fixtures will be unkind. Would need to make a double-swap to free up funds for Rooney.
    Vent/Brag: Rejected advice to captain Aguero; never thought he and the rest of City would torch Spurs defense like they did. Mate in the private league still beat me this week by 6pts so far.
