Moneyball – Marc Wilson

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Chris Glover

If ever there was a team to scrutinize for a Moneyball piece, it is Stoke. They’re unfashionable and uninspiring with a reported philosophy that is about as far from Fantasy Football as one can get. Such characteristics, though, give us an opportunity to find value, and it is to the Britannia where we’ll turn our attention this week.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago

      • 1 year, 11 months ago

    RVP/Lambert/Ba

    I have 6.5 to spend, who is the best option to fill in the blank?
    a)Vert

    d)Wilson
    e)Others (please state your choice thank you :) )

    • 1 year, 11 months ago

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  4. Who to bench Iva or yaya??

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. yup. +1

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
  5. Who to transfer out to bring Berbatov in?

    A) Fletcher
    B) Aguero

    No other sunderland or city in team FWIW

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  6. Struggling for inspiration this week, team is:

    Begovic (Ruddy)
    Davies, Baines, Vermaelen, Demel (Clarke)
    Morrison, Hazard, Bale, (Guthrie, Fellaini)
    Aguero, Suarez, Fletcher

    Thinking Fletcher and Fellaini out for Giroud and Nolan or just Fellaini to Gervinho. Very indecisive at moment - help needed! Took Cazorla out for Bale last GW and now worried not having any attacking coverage against them. Who's likely to be attacking line-up?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  7. Asked this earlier but Internet went down :(.

    A) Sterling and Ben Arfa

    Or

    B) Michu and Nolan

    For part of my WC team.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  8. Any news on Liam Ridgewell? I'll have Gibbs out and Ridgewell a doubt, so may need to bring a defender in, if any more drop like a hotpot.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Actually thinking about it, I'll probably play Lowton, anyway.
