A successful 2011/12 promotion campaign saw Southampton rack up the goals as Nigel Adkins’ side finished second in the npower Championship. Having found the net 85 times last term, the Saints immediately placed Fantasy managers on alert and on the lookout for new blood for their squads. The most obvious and popular pick was Rickie Lambert who notched 25 goals in the Championship, while Adam Lallana and new arrivals Jay Rodriguez and later Gaston Ramirez have also been touted as potential Fantasy options. Even Morgan Schneiderlin – who had just two goals in almost 150 appearances coming into the season – has received some attention after his goal against Man United in Gameweek three.
I'm starting both Cuellar & Ridgewell. Should I put Demel or Hangeland first sub? (Also playing Jaask)Open Controls
both are 2 pointers I think mate, so shouldnt matter, maybe Demel first as Hangeland has had no attacking threat for sometime.Open Controls
Demel, I'd be far more surprised if City didn't score as opposed to QPR.Open Controls
Cheers all!Open Controls
- Round and Round
Demel. Hangeland's goal-threat has disappeared from what I've seen so far this (and last) season. Had him at the start but got rid on my WC.Open Controls
Decided I'm not going to go without a third striker for 2 weeks as Tevez is a bit dodgy too so Berb to Lambert it is. I'm confident he'll get 4 points more than Maloney over those 2 games and with the international break added in I reckon Berb will fall at least once. Who knows might even keep him if the Tevez rotation thing annoys me enough.Open Controls
i would take a -4 to get tevez out, that empty striker spot is a wast.Open Controls
Anyone else thinking hazard won't do anything this weekend? Any done a 4 pointer to get rid?Open Controls
i think you will regret it.Open Controls
No, even if he doesn't he has Norwich at home next week!Open Controls
Got rid yes he looked a lot less dangerous than Mata and Oscar last week and they are greedier too plus only 1 good fixture on the horizon.Open Controls
their is an 8 point hit thats staring at me that involves hazard out 😯
hughes/hazard/tevez to baines/fellani/aguero...leaves 0.3Open Controls
looks to be more than 8 points in that tbhOpen Controls
The first transfer's free?Open Controls
Too short sided for me - Tevez will start 1 of the next 2 and then has no International games, so probably 2/3..Hazard has Norwich at home next week. The only one I'd do is Baines but you won't have enough $$Open Controls

thinking of keeping tevez 😀Open Controls

I really believe that for those that have him, Steven Fletcher will deliver the goods this weekend, make him your (c) and you wont regret it.Open Controls
Berbatov you big noob!Open Controls

So didnt sound like Jelavic is nailed on for 90mins, but should play the majority of the match. Moyes is cageyOpen Controls
TBH it would be extremely unlikely for any manager to announce in a press conference the exact number of minutes one of his players would be used for.Open Controls

faving the same problem my self. my logic: having michu for this week in your team when a lot of managers are loosing faith or discarding him could be a decent boost in rankings if michu does score one or two. he is not out of form with a goal in the capital one cup. 2Open Controls
Bench Michu. The Liverpool fixture's too good to miss.Open Controls
I've decided to play my wildcard - a bit early but team was starting to falter.
Decided to do Crouch -> Berb (as he's injured) - anyone else think this is a good move? if not any suggestions for under 6.6M?Open Controls
just done this wc team.

berba & tevez for who...?
have 18.8 in the bank and already have defoe up front with hazard/pienaar/santi/hba/guthrie in midOpen Controls
😮 Exact same question!
First need to decide whether getting rid of Tevez is worth a point hit. I'm still on the fence. Though if I go ahead with it I'm thinking a swap to Aguero + 6.5 mil striker... Kone maybe? In your case you can get Aguero and Fletcher, no brainer..Open Controls
I hope you still have WC available...Open Controls
Should I sell Berbatov and make a quick profit, and get Fletcher or Ba for a 4 point hit? Other two are Tevez and Rvp so need someone nailed on.Open Controls
For long term yes, Fletcher's fixtures after this GW aren't great though. Ba could be pushed out wide if Cisse does get his mojo backOpen Controls
- United come on!
I make transfers early this week to bring Berbs in for a hit. Should I wc now because I have Cuellar, Morrison and Ridgewell out too?Open Controls

suarez, aguero Or Baines Captain?. Difficult ChoiceOpen Controls
Suarez if you're hoping he'll replicate his hat-trick effort (at least I am)Open Controls
Morning Everyone (or evening elsewhere)!
I’ve made 3 transfers already, Aguero -> Suso -> Suarez (I regret the first transfer now)
That means 8 points as I’ve already used my WC.
But Berbie Doll just decided to have a red exclamation mark when I woke up this morning so I’ve got myself a bit of a dilemma. Should I use Guthrie for him ( and play 3-5-2) or should I make another transfer for another player?Open Controls
