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?!

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. Arsenal were after him a couple years ago. Got Koscielny and Squillaci that summer.
      Why, oh why, Squillaci.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. indeed

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
  2. 95 points with Mata,Terry Friedel,Petrov ans Simpson to play. Is 100 a possibility?

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. Not a chance mate. See you next season, unlucky.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. just

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. no just give up now

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    4. What do you think? Go with your gut feeling.........

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    5. 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    6. Don't be THAT guy.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. There's always one.

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
    7. i reckon you'll finish on 109

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    8. Grade A moron. Jump off a cliff

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    9. idiot

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  3. This week has been a major letdown fantasy-wise.

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. massive incorrect :)

        • 2 years, 4 months 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.

          • 2 years, 4 months ago
      2. HVT

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. :shock: Kelly

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. Huth really..

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. 2/3 shots on target

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. Loving those as a Hangeland/Huth owner.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  5. Anyone hit the century yet?

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. A.

      Lots, not me though ;)

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. I'm only 46 points off with 3 players to go :D

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. lol i am at 44 away with 4 to go

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. Until Pienaars last minute booking I had 100, it led to Howards 3rd save so ended up on 99 :(

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    4. divided by 2.

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
  7. Watched Fulham vs Liverpool game I reckon bonus points will be
    3 Hangeland
    2 Riise
    1 Kacaniklic

    *sorry lost on last page*

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. i think no-one should get them
      woeful

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  8. did the ball touched Cahill before the Crouch goal ?

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. According to you from the last page, yes.

      But in reality, no.

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

    • 2 years, 4 months 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months 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 ;)

        • 2 years, 4 months 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.

          • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

      :evil:

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Thank you Pennywise very informative. Where is the link to your team?

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

      well that makes sense

      • 2 years, 4 months 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 ;)

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

        • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. ****. Looks like it'll be taken off him then.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. i could agree if he had fellainis mop

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. true that, I am very happy about Hibbert not getting it (evil grin)

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. So Cisse out rvp in? Am just afarid of Rooney bagging a good few as utd need the goals

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
          • 2 years, 4 months ago
          1. Would RVP Hernandez save -4?

            • 2 years, 4 months ago
            1. Yes it would. But will he Play? Is welbeck that bad?

              • 2 years, 4 months 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?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Aaron Lemon

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
          • 2 years, 4 months 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?

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. naaaa they just gonna take them off and remove his bap

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  12. 105 points so far this week, with a few to play will i make 100 ? oh wait.....

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. nicely played wildcard :)

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. No, they'll all be sent off and score 3 own goals each.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. Evs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights

      Played Wildcard this gw36?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. indeed :)

        • 2 years, 4 months 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?

          • 2 years, 4 months 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

            • 2 years, 4 months ago
  13. which one has a big chance to win this h2h?

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

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. A = 13
      B = 2 + 1 + 16

      Sorry

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  14. On 81 with 6 to play. If Moses wasn't on the bench would be on 91 :-/

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. on 84 with 5 to play. If Kompany + Mcclean wasn't on the bench would be on 108. :/ ?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  15. I had Everton half time/Stoke full time - £10 @ 13/1 :D

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. i thought it is draw full time?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. Doesn't that mean you needed Stoke to win?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. Nice.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Wait, read it wrong. Yeah, like said above - you win nothing?

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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Actualy I just wrote it down wrong, but thanks..... for being a mug.

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
    5. Im confused.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    6. A.

      But it was a draw?

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    7. Yeah sorry i meant Everton/Draw ;)

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. the bookmie should make you pay jerk off tax :-)

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
          • 2 years, 4 months ago
      2. lol was thinking 13/1 was an awfull price on that bet! ht/ft bets are always fun nice pick.

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
        1. Thanks :)

          • 2 years, 4 months ago
  16. So Liverpool are 6pts above 14th place. Erm.

    • 2 years, 4 months 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.

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. A.

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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. Well Harry was never going to get the job after coughing that he couldn't operate a fax machine !!

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. or pay tax

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
          • 2 years, 4 months ago
  18. CAN THIS DGW END ALREADY.. i hate it

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. okay ill end it now..

      • 2 years, 4 months 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:-)

    • 2 years, 4 months 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....

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. SillyBilly.

      • 2 years, 4 months 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.....???

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Logic gone completely there :-(

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
      2. think he means warnock

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
      3. Sorry my bad...meant to say Warnock!!!!!!

        • 2 years, 4 months 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

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. A.

      Norwich's leaky defence

      • 2 years, 4 months 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    3. Rooney was pretty dire last night, RVP at home against an out of form Norwich...

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

        • 2 years, 4 months 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....

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. this

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. It doesnt matter who is in charge. The media will always make it harder.

      • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. and they deserve to be.. they are underdogs -200
        no fricking chance

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
      2. + 1 the players wanted to play for Harry also, can Woy motivate them?

        • 2 years, 4 months 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. So you think Konchesky will get a call up?

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
          • 2 years, 4 months 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  23. quick question, all ya yappies saying that it's a Hibbert's assist. did you even watched the game ?

    • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. and yes I did watch the game

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
        1. how do you explain why Crouch didn't celebrate that goal then ?

          • 2 years, 4 months ago
          1. why would he celebrate an own goal ?? :roll:

            • 2 years, 4 months ago
            1. much lolz

              • 2 years, 4 months ago
      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. Oh no, not another assist controversy....

      • 2 years, 4 months 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.

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. if hibbert loses his assist after watching mata got 2 ridiculous assists i will quit the game

        • 2 years, 4 months ago
  24. Syd

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

    • 2 years, 4 months 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. :D

    • 2 years, 4 months 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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
  26. Whos a must. Rvp or Rooney

    • 2 years, 4 months ago
    1. mir

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

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
    2. rooney is a lazy sod at the mo
      vp definetly

      • 2 years, 4 months ago
      1. Why all the love for rvp? Utds only hope is to go all out for a sh1t load of goals

        • 2 years, 4 months 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

          • 2 years, 4 months 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

            • 2 years, 4 months ago
            1. plus rooneys form at home is very good

              • 2 years, 4 months ago
