The Knee Jerk

The Knee Jerk – Sinful Saint

Last weekend it was Dimitar Berbatov, this evening it’s Rickie Lambert that will be wandering into our minds mid-conversation, over the Saturday evening tipple. Prompting nagging doubt, questioning our best-laid plans.

Lambert is the latest to cause cracks in our established Fantasy thinking. Like the Bulgarian, he arrives in a Gameweek where, once again, the likes of Eden Hazard and Michu – assets who were cemented in our squads – returned blanks. The foundations of the template team again come in question then, with Lambert joining the queue to find a place in our forward lines that looked so settled just a fortnight ago.

There’s little doubt that, as we suggested in the midweek Watchlist article, Lambert has emerged as the budget striker of choice. However, we also spent some time in said article pondering if he could be more than that. If he could displace the array of mid-price assets fighting for our attentions – Dimitar Berbatov, Steven Fletcher, Jermain Defoe. Tonight, I’m even wondering if he can threaten to break up the heavy-hitter pairings.

I’ll be watching Carlos Tevez carefully against Arsenal. While he’s flourished in the opening matches, Sergio Aguero’s return to fitness and Roberto Mancini’s “nine lives” approach to Mario Baltoelli raises a cause for concern. That’s before we consider that Eden Dzeko has, as he’s done so often, found the net when he’s given pitch time.

A Tevez blank or, worse still, an early withdrawal against Arsenal, could trigger a rethink. There’s little doubt that City have the fixtures to find goals in the coming weeks, but growing concerns about their defence and Mancini’s insistence that it must approve, has raised alarm bells for me.

I remember when City battened down the hatches, when they fought for 1-0 wins away from home. Should Mancini take that route again, we could see 4-5-1 with Yaya Toure behind Aguero away from home, something that would hurt Tevez’ scoring potential immeasurably. While Sir Alex appears to be going all out for goals, will Mancini dare to tweak his tactics to tighten up?

Such thoughts crop up before I even consider the merits of sticking with the ultra-expensive Robin Van Persie, under the threat of rotation and rest. I’m trying to fight those doubts off, however.

There is clearly a very attractive plan B forming. Lambert, like Berbatov, offers assured starts. He offers the “big fish in a small pond” scenario. He offers spot-kicks, assists and he faces a long line of fixtures that could bring further returns. The temptation to go with this option, even over the proven class of Tevez, does begin to mount when you consider that Mancini’s whims can waver and throw us the unexpected.

This kind of talk is almost sinful, “Knee Jerk” material of the highest order. We’re talking about supreme Fantasy assets here, while Lambert is perhaps just a noisy new arrival at the party. Four goals in five games is a decent entrance, however, and certainly Tevez will need to offer a reminder of his class on Sunday if tonight’s bout of puzzle-head isn’t to transform into a fully-fledged plan of action.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

      Hello Good Morning All,

      Is there anybody who watched Westbrom- Reading match?
      or anyone watched the highlights?
      FPL gave the assist for Lukaku goal to Chris Brunt.
      I just watched the highlights and I think it is Shane Long who headed the ball towards Lukaku?
      Does anybody know why it is given to Brunt?

      Thanks and Appreciate your reply.

                  I would think so. Foster could even move up to 2bps if Brunt's assist goes.

                      I have also sent email to FPL too. Bcoz all the news also says that it's Shane Long assist. And other Fantasy sites gave the assist to Shane Long too.

                            I agree with Demi. The Press Association had a bad day yesterday, but I'm confident FPL will sort out the Pienaar/Long assists. PA also gave wrong (duplicate) information for Berbatov's shots on target, which affected his PPI - but I don't expect this to change.

                              Me me me me. Gonna give it a few games to decide between ramirez and lallana. Whoever I go for will be rotated with berba. Great rotation for ages. Who are you thinking about? Anyone any idea how they lined up yesterday?

                                          Fulham are usually rubbish away, and yet they won and Berba got 8 pts. I wouldn't be too hasty about getting rid of him considering the fixtures coming up.

                                          I did not see them play....Have only seen their entire match against United. Rest were just highlights.

                                          I think Ramirez is gonna be my choice, but am definitely open to opinions. Please keep me updated on whom you decide.

                                          Btw it's either a Southampton mid, Sterling, Morrison, or Felliani (would mean downgrading someone else too as I have 6.8 in the bank if I get rid of Dyer)

                                      The assist by Ramirez was rather nice. If I didn't have Lambert I'd look at getting him.

                                      Somehow am up to 318 in world. Must be because I only have Tevez & Cazorla left to play. Team was pretty shoddy on the whole this week 44 of of 9 players. Should never have captained Torres thats for sure. Looking to dump him, who would you buy for 10.2 or less?

                                                                                          got 2FT and was thinking to use it on the defence. what u think of this?

                                                                                          davies > nelsen (will never hold any SWA def, michu was there and that's enough given their current injuries)

                                                                                          is it a go or no go? or should i focus on cuellar, what's his chance of playing the next gmw?

                                                                                          pls help! thanks in advance
