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.

  1. Aguero for 3 bonus?

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
    1. No too many missed chances

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. No chance.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. 2?

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
    3. nah 1 probably

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
  2. Rooney likely to get all three bps???

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
    1. He usually does.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. he wasted a few chances, welbeck and nani could nick them and im sure jelly will get something! tough call

      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
    1. Mata piennaar barfa bale vdv

      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
    2. I went with pienar

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    3. Bale if you don't have him, otherwise Ben Arfa.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    4. I'm sorry. What was the question? :-)

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
  4. Martin Petrov you have half a job done now so go and finish it with another haul.
    Great captain choice

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
  5. My team is
    Vorm / WOL (H)

    Caulker / WOL (H)
    Walker / BLA (H), BOL (A)
    Assou-Ekotto / BLA (H), BOL (A)


    Valencia / MCI (A)
    Dempsey / EVE (A), LIV (A)
    Bale / BLA (H), BOL (A)
    Cabaye / WIG (A), CHE (A)
    Ben Arfa / WIG (A), CHE (A)


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

    Bench:
    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, 6 months ago
    1. get jelavic for tevez, and bench valencia to play him

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. i was thinking for that, but worth a 4 t hit?

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
        1. id say so

          • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. 1 million in bank

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    3. play tevez over val for christ sake

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

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
    1. i sold him for Tevez, and 4 pt hit, 5-1=4 ha ha

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. thinking about benching.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. Me too but it doesn't feel right. Stoke isn't that bad of a fixture.

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
    3. May be benching. May keep both Rooney and Van Persie now ...

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. Yeah I want to keep both as I'll want them back for GW37.

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
    4. Sold. But on WC.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    5. maybe selling..give ways to Jelly~

      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months 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, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
    7. I sold for Tevez this GW, but will get him back in 37.

      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
  8. Reppoost.

    A)Caulker>Hibbert (-4)

    B)Valencia>Pienaar (-4)

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

    already have Jelavic.

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
      1. it depends if you have to play 1 or if you can bench the other

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
      • 2 years, 6 months ago
  9. Between Cabaye & Ben Arfa , who should get in first ?

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
    1. I have no idea - but I do have Ben Arfa. Toying with the idea of doubling ...

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. nope doubling atm, ben arfa is OOP right ?

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
  10. 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, 6 months ago
    1. Well, I think it is tremendous - apart from Bale. Don't see an alternative, though.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. Having clung to Bale, I have to keep him for DGW.

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
        1. That's what I mean. I am reneging on Pienaar, I think.

          • 2 years, 6 months ago
          1. on what grounds

            He has great form.

            • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. Time for a large gin is what I think ;-)

      • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. Hmm!
        Just seems that Arsenal are the 'one man team' and Everton don't score any goals.

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
        1. That is the myth on here. That is why I have persisted with Song - and will get Vermaelen in 37.

          • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
    1. yea looks solid! maybe jelly or cisse for captaincy

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
      1. I think Jelly is a good cap choice for this gw

        • 2 years, 6 months ago
        1. same i can definatly see him scoring against fulham or stoke if not both

          • 2 years, 6 months 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, 6 months ago
  13. new post

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
  14. will rooney get 3 nonus folks?

    • 2 years, 6 months ago

    • 2 years, 6 months ago
  16. 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, 6 months ago
    1. Lrf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Do not like that as an Ade owner.

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
    2. Source, as always...

      • 2 years, 6 months ago
  17. 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, 6 months 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, 6 months ago

    Mignolet

  21. 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, 6 months ago
