Sunday Dugout Discussion

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Akers

Yet again both Manchester clubs in are involved in Sunday Premier League action. With most fantasy managers cheering on their captain today, the Dugout Discussion opens to follow all the action from the three games on show.

We start at Old Trafford as United look to open up an eight point gap with a victory against Everton. The team news from the match-up is in, and the sides line-up as follows…

Man United XI: De Gea, Rafael Da Silva, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Scholes, Carrick, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck.

Everton XI: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Neville, Osman, Heitinga, Gibson, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic.

Nani returns to United’s starting eleven for the first time in eight games, with Ashley Young taking his place on the substitutes bench. Facing his former employer, Darron Gibson starts for Everton.

Then it’s over to bottom of the league Wolves, where City are in town needing three points regardless of the earlier result. Kicking off at the same time, Liverpool and West Brom are also in action, with Roy Hodgson back at Anfield for the first time since departing as Liverpool manager.

The Dugout Discussion chatroom is open and can be accessed right here.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  2. Rooney likely to get all three bps???

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. He usually does.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. he wasted a few chances, welbeck and nani could nick them and im sure jelly will get something! tough call

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  3. Have 9.4m to spend on a midfielder as Walcott has bust his damn hamstring. Who is the best replacement? I miss out on the good ones by .1m!!!

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Mata piennaar barfa bale vdv

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. Pienaar at the moment is my #1 choice. Have Bale, can't afford VDV or Mata, and already have 3 Newcastle players ;)

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. I went with pienar

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    3. Bale if you don't have him, otherwise Ben Arfa.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    4. I'm sorry. What was the question? :-)

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  4. Martin Petrov you have half a job done now so go and finish it with another haul.
    Great captain choice

    • 2 years, 1 day ago

    Cisse / WIG (A), CHE (A)
    Rooney / MCI (A)

    Tevez MUN (H) / Evans J MCI (A) / Lichaj WBA (A)

    Ive already used my 1 FT , any transfers worth a 4pt hit?
    And should i play Valencia/Tevez/Evans J

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. get jelavic for tevez, and bench valencia to play him

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. i was thinking for that, but worth a 4 t hit?

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
        1. id say so

          • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. 1 million in bank

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    3. play tevez over val for christ sake

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  6. Is anyone selling/benching RVP this week?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. i sold him for Tevez, and 4 pt hit, 5-1=4 ha ha

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. JKi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      thinking about benching.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. Me too but it doesn't feel right. Stoke isn't that bad of a fixture.

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
    3. May be benching. May keep both Rooney and Van Persie now ...

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. Yeah I want to keep both as I'll want them back for GW37.

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
    4. Sold. But on WC.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    5. maybe selling..give ways to Jelly~

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    6. I need jelly but don't know who to get rid of rvp/Rooney. I'm feeling so sentimental about rvp. I just can't see him going.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. Same here i've had him for all of his goals this season and last season bar 2. It just feels wrong selling him.

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
      2. I know exactly what you mean, I bought him for 11.9 and the thought of me selling him makes me go all funny inside

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
    7. I sold for Tevez this GW, but will get him back in 37.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  7. Rui

    Are 3 Spurs players too many for the DGW? I already have Bale and Ade and I'm considering getting BAE - should I bring in someone else instead?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. As a disgruntled spurs fan I would say 1 is too many at the moment. I have two and that's too much now as we have blown it

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  8. Reppoost.

    A)Caulker>Hibbert (-4)

    B)Valencia>Pienaar (-4)

    C)Caulker>Hibbert and Valencia Pienaar (-8)

    already have Jelavic.

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Have the same problem but look at the last games
      Man utd have swansea and sunderland and swansea have utd, so i would do A

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. it depends if you have to play 1 or if you can bench the other

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  9. Between Cabaye & Ben Arfa , who should get in first ?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. I have no idea - but I do have Ben Arfa. Toying with the idea of doubling ...

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. nope doubling atm, ben arfa is OOP right ?

      • 2 years, 1 day ago

    repost

    ok, so my Rooney to Tevez punt was a huge fail. But luckily rival only took 8 points out of me, so still have a 40 point cushion.

    Would love Rooney back for the Derby, but short of a 12 point hit, not gonna happen, so I will wait until 37 and shift Cisse.

    So, my DGW team should look like

    Mingolet

    Caulker, Cahill, Santon

    Bale, Dempsey, Pienaar, Siggy

    RvP, Jelavic, Cisse (c)

    De Gea, McClean, Verm, Evans

    (-8)

    What do we think?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Well, I think it is tremendous - apart from Bale. Don't see an alternative, though.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. JKi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Having clung to Bale, I have to keep him for DGW.

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
        1. That's what I mean. I am reneging on Pienaar, I think.

          • 2 years, 1 day ago
          1. JKi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            on what grounds

            He has great form.

            • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. Time for a large gin is what I think ;-)

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  11. 17 - Arsenal have had a joint-league high 17 different goalscorers this season (with Everton)
    Anyone else find that surprising, on both accounts?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. Hmm!
        Just seems that Arsenal are the 'one man team' and Everton don't score any goals.

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
        1. That is the myth on here. That is why I have persisted with Song - and will get Vermaelen in 37.

          • 2 years, 1 day ago
  12. Hi Guys Please let me know your thoughts on my team for next week. Please

    Vorm
    Cahill Taylor Jose Enrique
    Sigurdsson VDV Dempsey Bale
    Cisse Aguero Jelavic

    I will have taken a 4 pt hit for valenica and rooney to VDV and Jel. I Will get roo or nani back for gw 37
    THANKS

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. yea looks solid! maybe jelly or cisse for captaincy

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
      1. I think Jelly is a good cap choice for this gw

        • 2 years, 1 day ago
        1. same i can definatly see him scoring against fulham or stoke if not both

          • 2 years, 1 day ago
          1. thanks guys. As a utd fan i hate taken roo out but i just feel agureo has a better chance of scoring as i think roo will play deep

            • 2 years, 1 day ago
    • 2 years, 1 day ago
  13. will rooney get 3 nonus folks?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Yes I think

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  14. tw

    sess and walcott out for which 2 of these guys:

    vdv, bale, pienaar, hba, cabaye, gerrard, maxi

    can't be two of vdv bale and gerrard cuz of price and can't be two newcastle players cuz i've already go simps and cisse

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
  15. Grapevine stuff but:
    I've heard a few rumours tonight that I don't like regarding an Adebayor/Redknapp bust-up. Redknapp singled him out, Ade lost his temper.

    Man management superb as always 'Arry.

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Lrf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Do not like that as an Ade owner.

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
    2. Source, as always...

      • 2 years, 1 day ago
  16. Lrf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Everyone with Ade keeping faith with him, even if we doesn't get any hints about him beeing ready?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
    1. Rui

      He's done nothing but disappoint since I bought him in but it would be pointless to get rid before a crucial DGW. Hopefully the rumour posted above isn't true!

      • 2 years, 1 day ago

    • 2 years, 1 day ago
  20. I feel I have to have a Chelsea player in for DGW, but really unsure who, with the second CL clash with Barca and the FA cup final so close to the DGW. Anyone attack minded in the Chelsea side that is close to soild to start in the prem?

    • 2 years, 1 day ago

“A hit a week every week and finish in the top 50k is just fine and dandy for me. I play the game for the fun and how it improves watching Stoke vs Cardiff on a Monday night in November.”
