Tuesday Dugout Discussion

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Akers

Tonight we have four of the eight double Gameweek teams on show, and the Dugout Discussion opens to follow all the action as it unfolds. There may be little real-life significance in the two fixtures, but with our Fantasy campaigns on-the-line, here is the all-important team news…

Liverpool XI: Doni, Kelly, Coates, Skrtel, Aurelio, Henderson, Shelvey, Spearing, Maxi, Carroll, Kuyt.

Fulham XI: Schwarzer, Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, John Arne Riise, Duff, Murphy, Dembele, Kacaniklic, Dempsey, Pogrebnyak.

Kenny Dalglish shuffles his pack with this weekend’s FA Cup final in mind, and Martin Jol makes three changes to his side, as Danny Murphy, Stephen Kelly and Alex Kacaniklic are all handed starting berths.

Stoke XI: Begovic, Huth, Upson, Shawcross, Wilson, Walters, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington, Jones, Crouch.

Everton XI: Howard, Hibbert, Heitinga, Jagielka, Distin, Anichebe, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Cahill, Jelavic.

Matthew Upson, Rory Delap and Kenwyne Jones all earn starts for the home side this evening, with Tim Cahill and Victor Anichebe coming in for the visitors.

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

  1. Hangeland deserves the 3. Won every header and made many clearances and tackles. When will a big team take a punt on him?!

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. Arsenal were after him a couple years ago. Got Koscielny and Squillaci that summer.
      Why, oh why, Squillaci.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. indeed

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
  2. 95 points with Mata,Terry Friedel,Petrov ans Simpson to play. Is 100 a possibility?

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. Not a chance mate. See you next season, unlucky.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. just

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Maybe 200

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    4. no just give up now

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    5. What do you think? Go with your gut feeling.........

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    6. Terry and Mata rested. Tottenham concede 2 and Freidel gets no saves. Petrov gets two. Simpson is either out or going to get 1 point. So you'll get 99.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    7. Don't be THAT guy.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. There's always one.

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    8. i reckon you'll finish on 109

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    9. Grade A moron. Jump off a cliff

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    10. idiot

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  3. This week has been a major letdown fantasy-wise.

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. massive incorrect :)

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. the bitching and moaning this DGW has been of the charts..managers rotate, players are rested.get over it people! mata has two cup finals on the way, what did you expect?? i had suarez, i knew he wouldn play tonight but still felt it was worth palying him for that one game becasue norwich leak goals for fun. i think its been one of the best GW's yet because its been so unpredictable and teams have been so varied.everyone thought Jelavic would hit the forties after scoring a double against fulha, but he didnt now bale/vdv captainers have a chance to catch up.fantasy is a beautiful game!enjoy it.

          • 3 years, 25 days ago

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. 😯 Kelly

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Huth really..

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. 2/3 shots on target

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Loving those as a Hangeland/Huth owner.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  5. Anyone hit the century yet?

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. A.

      Lots, not me though 😉

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. I'm only 46 points off with 3 players to go 😀

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. lol i am at 44 away with 4 to go

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Until Pienaars last minute booking I had 100, it led to Howards 3rd save so ended up on 99 :(

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    4. divided by 2.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  6. mir

    who wins H2H - i need one more win to win h2h work league - last game is v 2nd place... want to wrap it up before then

    me - Ben Arfa / Ade / Cisse (C) + poss bonus dempsey / jelly /huth / schawarzer / jajielka ??

    rival - krul / coloccini / modric / cisse + 9 points

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
  7. Watched Fulham vs Liverpool game I reckon bonus points will be
    3 Hangeland
    2 Riise
    1 Kacaniklic

    *sorry lost on last page*

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. i think no-one should get them
      woeful

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  8. did the ball touched Cahill before the Crouch goal ?

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. According to you from the last page, yes.

      But in reality, no.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  9. I hate people who support like man u or chelsea who are not from england and have never been to there stadium GLORY HUNTERS

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. There are a lot of "supporters" who live in England and have never been to there stadium and barely watch there team on t.v. Does seem to be mostly United fans.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Depends how old you are. Loads of peple my age are Liverpool fans and they've never been to Liverpool. Luckily for them 😉

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. Trust me when I started supporting Liverpool Graeme Souness was our manager. If I was going to go for glory I would have gone for United.

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Think you will find that is why these teams can have such glory, with all funds from Asia merchandise market etc. and foreign tv rights. But chances are they can at least spell

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. I hate people who are grammatically incorrect time and time again and some more than once in a single comment, here's looking at you go to sleep. It's their not there...

      http://www.wikihow.com/Use-There,-Their-and-They're

      👿

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Thank you Pennywise very informative. Where is the link to your team?

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    4. so people not from england can only support teams like everton or local teams like hull city/leeds?

      well that makes sense

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    5. You're allowed a foreign team to support, no? I'm a Dundee Utd fan north of the border, does that make me a glory hunter 😉

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. if u support team that is in EURO cup or european cup, or in top10 of epl in the moment, u are a glory hunter

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    6. I dont really care what you think. But maybe you should go to that proud Englishman owner of your club Chelsea and tell him you dont want any club shirts or the like sold outside of England to none english fans that maybe cant afford to fly to another country to watch the match live. And while your at it tell him you want the players who are not english sold or sent back to the country your club bought them from. You Dip Stick

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. ****. Looks like it'll be taken off him then.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. i could agree if he had fellainis mop

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. true that, I am very happy about Hibbert not getting it (evil grin)

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. if thats the only evidence they have then itll stay with hibbert, that really isnt conclusive enough

      then again neither was the gervinho/rvp one

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  10. Right guys.My rival has Rooney Rvp Jelavic for this week. Ive Cisse Agureo Jelavic. I have a 35pt lead at the min. I have Bale Walker Cisse and Vdv to play. He has Simpson Mata and Vdv(c) to play, My Question is Would any of you take a 8pt hit to match his front 3 if i still had a lead of around 35pts? Also who do i captain? Thanks for any help given

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. I would try get RVP for sure and keep Aguero for 38, limit the hit to 4 points

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. So Cisse out rvp in? Am just afarid of Rooney bagging a good few as utd need the goals

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
          • 3 years, 25 days ago
          1. Would RVP Hernandez save -4?

            • 3 years, 25 days ago
            1. Yes it would. But will he Play? Is welbeck that bad?

              • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. A train is travelling westward at 89kph at 4pm. At the same time, a 10yo child on a bike (4 gears only) is travelling angle of 23 degrees South Eastwards to the train tracks, starting his journey 10miles away 58mins and 21 seconds later. He stops for ice cream, which takes 8mins to queue for and 9mins 12seconds to eat (during this time he only pedals at 34% of his average speed). My questions is: What was the ice cream flavour he chose and why?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Aaron Lemon

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
          • 3 years, 25 days ago
  11. Been away for a few days not be reading on here. Mata really 4 assists? A friend of mine says 2.. probably 4 will stand for sure now?

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. naaaa they just gonna take them off and remove his bap

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  12. 105 points so far this week, with a few to play will i make 100 ? oh wait.....

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. nicely played wildcard :)

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. No, they'll all be sent off and score 3 own goals each.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Evs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Played Wildcard this gw36?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. indeed :)

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. Evs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights

          Tidy darts.

          Mine bumped me up the rankings after a sh1te first 12dgw, but I like to play late.

          Question. Was there a double gw like this towards end of last year? Just thinking as impact from fa cup?

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
          1. there were 2 wildcards last year, one within the transfer window and the other anytime. I seem to recall playing the anytime one about 10 weeks before the end of the season, it was more due to the bad winter weather than fa cup games

            • 3 years, 25 days ago
  13. which one has a big chance to win this h2h?

    A : Cisse + 11 points
    vs
    B : Simpson + Mata + Ade (c)

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. A = 13
      B = 2 + 1 + 16

      Sorry

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  14. On 81 with 6 to play. If Moses wasn't on the bench would be on 91 :-/

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. on 84 with 5 to play. If Kompany + Mcclean wasn't on the bench would be on 108. :/ ?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  15. I had Everton half time/Stoke full time - £10 @ 13/1 😀

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. i thought it is draw full time?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Doesn't that mean you needed Stoke to win?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Nice.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Wait, read it wrong. Yeah, like said above - you win nothing?

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    4. the match finished a draw, you lose buddy HAHAHAHAHAHA
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX7wtNOkuHo

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Actualy I just wrote it down wrong, but thanks..... for being a mug.

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    5. Im confused.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    6. A.

      But it was a draw?

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    7. Yeah sorry i meant Everton/Draw 😉

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. the bookmie should make you pay jerk off tax :-)

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
          • 3 years, 25 days ago
      2. lol was thinking 13/1 was an awfull price on that bet! ht/ft bets are always fun nice pick.

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. Thanks :)

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
  16. So Liverpool are 6pts above 14th place. Erm.

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
  17. 64 years of age - managed 18 teams in 8 different countries and yet won bugger all except some Scandinavian Sunday league titles-everyone eager to say what an out and out gentleman he is - yet he has to manage boozing, gambling and wife-cheating scumbags -

    good luck Woy cos you'll need it

    Ps.

    Did they ask for Terry, Lampard and Gerard's permission to select him? After all, it's player-power that manages teams.

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. A.

      As long as he doesn't start talking about World Rankings..

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Well Harry was never going to get the job after coughing that he couldn't operate a fax machine !!

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. or pay tax

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. 😆

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
  18. CAN THIS DGW END ALREADY.. i hate it

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. okay ill end it now..

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  19. Thinking that I will just about cling on to my green arrow after the points update later. Need VDV (C) to do the bizz tomorrow night now:-)

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
  20. Walker on my bench has 3rd sub has more points for me than the combined points of Rooney, Cisse, Ben Arfa, Vorm, Simpson and Turner....

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. SillyBilly.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Evs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Question.

      Why on earth would you bench walker this week?

      Plays for a Top 4 team, in a dgw v 2 teams in relagtion zone?,

      Please explain, please.....???

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Logic gone completely there :-(

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
      2. think he means warnock

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
      3. Sorry my bad...meant to say Warnock!!!!!!

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
  21. any idea why rvp is ahead of rooney in the captains poll? maybe its just me but i thought rooney was the nailed on pick

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. A.

      Norwich's leaky defence

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Both good - but I agree with you. I feel a tumbling Young/Rooney penalty coming. Playing a captain home v Norwich has failed more than succeeded this year.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. Rooney was pretty dire last night, RVP at home against an out of form Norwich...

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. dunno if the fixture came 2 months ago i'd be all over rvp but i prefer rooney this week! either way i'm not captaining either because im chasing a 30 point gap in my ML so ill do something more dangerous! nani or adebayor perhaps

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
  22. England

    All the negativity surrounding Hodgsons appointment is really pissing me off. It's done, accept it and get behind him and the team.
    'Arry is a wideboy just waiting for the next skeleton to escape from his cupboard and hardly has a great track record.
    It's a tough job and feeding the media with anti Roy shit will make it harder. Give the guy a chance....

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. this

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. It doesnt matter who is in charge. The media will always make it harder.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. agreed, but just think they've missed a trick. England would have gone into the Euros with a feelgood factor under Harry, now they'll be nervous as hell as usual

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. and they deserve to be.. they are underdogs -200
        no fricking chance

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
      2. + 1 the players wanted to play for Harry also, can Woy motivate them?

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
    4. Totally agree. The fact that people even have to say 'let's give him a chance' says alot about the red top reading mouth breathers that buy the tabloid crap that perpetuates the wild media fervour surrounding the squad. I feel sorry for Roy already. It's like Liverpool all over again.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. So you think Konchesky will get a call up?

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
          • 3 years, 25 days ago
    5. Hvt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I think ye got a good one there, Hoy Rodgson is totally suited to international management and should be given a chance, Only problem is the English media-theyll hound the poor guy.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  23. quick question, all ya yappies saying that it's a Hibbert's assist. did you even watched the game ?

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. did you even look at the replays on one of your previous posts ? its all there in slo mo. CAHILL DOESNT TOUCH IT

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. and yes I did watch the game

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. how do you explain why Crouch didn't celebrate that goal then ?

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
          1. why would he celebrate an own goal ?? :roll:

            • 3 years, 25 days ago
            1. much lolz

              • 3 years, 25 days ago
      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. Oh no, not another assist controversy....

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    3. I will admit to it. Didn't think Cahill touched it at the time, and not really sure even after seeing the replay a few times. I would be surprised if Hibbert loses the assist - but I have been surprised on more than one occasion this season. Depends if the guy from the PA has Cahill in his team, I think.

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. if hibbert loses his assist after watching mata got 2 ridiculous assists i will quit the game

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
  24. Syd

    New Post Chaps.... Frisking the fixtures........

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
  25. All I need is a cleanie form Krul, a hat trick from Cisse(c) and a an assist from VDV and....BOOM - triple digit score, here I come. 😀

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. my plan was that both liverpool and chelsea would be shit second half of dgw so rake it in
      not worked so far

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
  26. Whos a must. Rvp or Rooney

    • 3 years, 25 days ago
    1. mir

      i'm getting both - 4 point hit... then aguero for rooney for gw38...

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
    2. rooney is a lazy sod at the mo
      vp definetly

      • 3 years, 25 days ago
      1. Why all the love for rvp? Utds only hope is to go all out for a sh1t load of goals

        • 3 years, 25 days ago
        1. disagree, all the hope is on newcastle now.

          it will need two 5-0 match from united and city only win both games by 1 goal. not realistic, and i think fergie knows that

          • 3 years, 25 days ago
          1. Am not saying Utd will do it but they have to try. And if wolves can get 4 past them surely Utd will feel they can get a few past them. Again am not saying it will happen just that they have to try

            • 3 years, 25 days ago
            1. plus rooneys form at home is very good

              • 3 years, 25 days ago
