Dugout Discussion

Saturday Dugout Discussion – Gameweek 5

We start Gameweek 5 at the Liberty Stadium, as Michael Laudrup’s Swansea host Everton. The Dugout Discussion is open, so come in and follow all the day’s action amongst fellow fantasy football managers. The team news is in and there’s one or two surprises…

Swansea XI: Vorm, Rangel, Tate, Williams, Davies, Ki, de Guzman, Michu, Hernandez, Routledge, Graham.

Everton XI: Howard, Neville, Heitinga, Jagielka, Baines, Osman, Pienaar, Coleman, Fellaini, Mirallas, Anichebe.

Following their defeat at Aston Villa last time out, Nathan Dyer and Leon Britton drop to the bench with Ki Sung Yueng and Pablo Hernandez coming in.

Having scored on Monday night against Newcastle, Victor Anichebe earns a starting berth, replacing the injured Nikica Jelavic.

There’s another five Premier League fixtures to enjoy after Swansea and Everton do battle – so plenty of fantasy points on offer all round. The Dugout Discussion chatroom is the place to see them roll in, which can be accessed right here.

    Repost...

    Quick question, would you guys say Federici -> Begovic is a good transfer choice for me for the next GW or would you say I have more pressing transfers??

    Team…

    Foster – Federici
    Cole – Baines – Demel – Cuellar – Hughes
    Bale – Nolan – Pienaar – Michu – Guthrie
    RVP – Tevez – Podolski

    Cheers for any replies!!

    I think it might be a little too early to give up on Michu.

    Swansea do have Reading and Wigan at home after Stoke. You just know if you take him out now, he'll rip it up in those 2 games.

    I really want to get in Baines. I have nothing in the bank and 1FT transfer so might try and get him over the space of two weeks. Any thoughts how. Also my bench is woeful. I actually thought Noble would be a good signing.

    Howard
    Cole - Hangeland - Gibbs
    Pienaar - Bale - Yaya - Michu
    RVP - Berbatov - Tevez

    subs: Fed (inj), Noble, Barnett, McCarthy (isn't playing these days)

    I could downgrade Howard, then upgrade Cole.
    Downgrade a midfielder (yaya) and upgrade a defender
