The Weekend Team News

Filed under: Team News - Posted by: johnfinlay

Louis Saha will not feature for Tottenham after former boss David Moyes and Harry Redknapp strike up a “gentleman’s agreement” prior to the Goodison fixture, whilst Aaron Lennon misses out with injury.

Moyes welcomes back a host of players including Jack Rodwell, Victor Anichebe and Leon Osman. Chris Smalling will be assessed ahead of Manchester United’s game with West Brom, who have lost Steven Reid for the season.

John Terry and Ashley Cole are both available in a fully fit Chelsea squad as they take on Stoke. Arsene Wenger is sweating on a number of players in the build up to their clash with Newcastle.

        1. 3 pool denfensive players can also be hard to slowly remove u'll be bringing in kompany BAE or hart/friedel soon i guess

          • 3 years, 18 days ago
          1. rdb

            plan to keep all 3 pool players till the end..they have some cracking fixtures..dont think other teams will keep many cs from they have tough fixtures.

            • 3 years, 18 days ago
  12. Team
    Kompany Cahill Jevans Raylor
    Dempsey bale Silva

    • 3 years, 18 days ago
  17. Am wondering if I should jump on the Poggy or Suarez bandwagon but that would leave me a selection dilemma. Here's the team so far:

    Mign (vorm)

    Lescott, Clichy, J Evans, (BAE) (Simpson)

    Silva, Siggy, Bale, Dempsey, Mata

    VP(C), Holt (Ba)

    With Kompany out there is a chance that both Lescott and Clichy might play again but that might be tempting fate.

    If I bring in Suarez for the DGW I'll then transfer to poggy next week but it will be a 4ph. Also who would I sub from the midfield??

    • 3 years, 18 days ago
  18. sorensen
    1 ft cant believe this ,just pffffffffffttttttt

    • 3 years, 18 days ago
  19. How about this for a last minute knee jerk....was very happy with my team...brought in adam a week earlier to prepare for the DGW and did ok last plan was to change Aguerro and bring in Reina for Krul and Skrtel for Taiwo...I did all that...bringing in Pogrebnyak for Aguerro. An 8 point hit, but justified as I wanted to keep all three. Then I decided to go one better and bring in Kompany for Vermaelen....-12....and now, after hearing of Kompany's injury I panicked and brought in Jones (who to be fair I will keep) so now I am up to -16....brilliant! Still upbeat about having a good game week but an unneccessary hit of -8 stings. My team for the GW is as follows:
    Jones, Skrtel, BAE
    Siggy, Morrison, Dempsey, Adam
    Rooney, Pogrebnyak, RVP
    bench: McClean Evans Simpson and Vorm

    Any thoughts for Captain and/or taking out morrison for evans to double up on a possible Man U cleanie against W Brom?

    • 3 years, 18 days ago
    1. Lulz, 176 points hits this season. You gotta go cold turkey.

      • 3 years, 17 days ago
      1. nevermind I'm bad at maths.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
