The Stock Check – Sunday

Filed under: The Stock Check - Posted by: Paul

Brede Hangeland’s dismissal hands Sunderland the chance to register their first away win of the season. Steven Fletcher and Adam Johnson both play a part in two of the Black Cats’ three goals, while Dimitar Berbatov draws a rare blank as Fulham lose for the first time with the Bulgarian in their starting XI:

On the Up

Steven Fletcher
Without a strike since Gameweek 5, the Scot returned to form with a goal and assist as Sunderland made full use of their extra-man advantage following Brede Hangeland’s first-half dismissal. With four home fixtures in the next four, including double Gameweek 16, Fletcher chose the perfect time to serve a reminder of his capabilities.

Adam Johnson
The winger added to last week’s goal at Everton by providing a pair of assists as the Black Cats scored more than a single goal for only the second time this season. Johnson had previously failed to produce any attacking returns prior to Gameweek 11 but is starting to suggest he may be finally settling at the Stadium of Light.

Carlos Cuellar
Providing he’s injury-free, the Spaniard seems nailed-on at the heart of the Sunderland defence and found the net for the first time since moving to Wearside. His cut-price valuation means Cuellar is another likely candidate for his side’s upcoming fixtures, bearing in mind O’Neill’s side have conceded just three goals in four home games so far.

Stephane Sessegnon
For many a month he’s flattered to deceive but the Benin international fired home a superb effort to score for the first time since March. If Sessegnon can return to the form that produced seven goals and 12 assists last term, he could be another differential to consider over the next few.

Going Down

Brede Hangeland
Dismissed for a two-footed challenge on Lee Cattermole, the Cottagers centre-half now faces a three-match ban. Hangeland’s absence should afford Philippe Senderos a chance alongside Aaron Hughes ahead of trips to Stoke and Chelsea and a home clash against Spurs.

James McClean
A nailed-on starter under Martin O’Neill last term, the winger was omitted from the starting line-up for today’s showdown. The return of Lee Cattermole saw Seb Larsson move to the right and Adam Johnson shift over to the left as McClean dropped out for the second time in three Gameweeks.

Dimitar Berbatov
The Bulgarian was snapped up by over 230,000 FPL managers heading into today’s game after producing returns in five of his first six starts for the Cottagers. With injuries and dismissals disrupting the hosts’ rhythm, Berbatov returned a rare blank but was nevertheless full of creativity and attacking threat for Jol’s side.

Fulham Defence
There’s no denying Hangeland’s sending off played a part in today’s result but Jol’s defence continue to leak goals at an alarming rate. Fulham have now conceded three goals in all but one of their last four matches and have shipped 22 this term – only QPR and Southampton have conceded more.

** Just a heads-up to let you know that the Big Numbers article, which usually follows Sunday evening’s Stock Check, should now be published tomorrow. Mark has been laid low by a bug and is having a rare night off.

  1. after tinkering (probably too much) for 12 weeks i'm heading very shortly for this:

    bego McCarthy
    nelsen gorks garriddo wilkinson cuellar
    mata fellaini santi michu maloney
    rvp suarez tevez

    i don't care what you think i just like seeing it in black and white on the screen.

    thanks for your time!

    PS all out attack is the way forward !!!

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Looks nice.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. I could only dream for a team that costs that much. :(

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  2. What do you think about such team:

    Begovic / Foster
    Demel / Jenkinson / Ivanovic / Gorkss / Baines
    Arfa / Cazorla / Guthrie / Michu / Bale
    Suarez / Jelavic / Lambert

    1 FT

    2.6 in Bank

    Problems i got

    Ivanovic,Guthrie,Jenkinson,Ben Arfa

    Whom would you replace first and with whom ?

    Suggestions appreciated :)

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Ben Arfa > Oscar
      Guthrie > Puncheon/Sterling
      Ivanovic > Cuellar
      Jenkinson > Garrido

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Cheers !

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Barfa -> mata

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. HBA > Silva.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. so you would take out HBA first ?

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. HBA might score big points but he's way too inconsistent to be owned long term.

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. yeah that's what i fear, Southampton might be team he scored against :(

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. Ivanovic would be my priority thisweek. Cuellar or a risky punt on an oop enrique

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    5. a lot of problems in this team
      start with the ones who lost their spot jenks
      guthrie will be essential to go if suarez or michu (or especially both) pick up cards next week

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Jenkinson to Enrique or Garrido i m thinking. Enrique being OOP

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Oh forgot you had 2.6! This option youre suggesting looks good!

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
      2. also the fact that next 3 fixtures are so thin n fast, i should be more concerned about my Bench

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
  3. Repost as lost on last page

    As a rookie to the game after some experienced advice.
    I got michu early and he is now worth 6.9 to me but would be 7.3 to buy back.
    Can I ever ship him or is he a forced season keeper??? What does the experienced player do?


    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. You would normally keep him and I'd do the same.
      You could sell him any time though.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Dont care about the price. If you wanna keep him long term, do not sell. If you like someone better, get someone and dont worry about the 'loss' of money which is actually profit you made.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. 0.4 isn't that much to worry about. If you strongly think his returns will dry up in the next few, he may even drop a few 100k plus when you weigh in any price rises for his replacement it's basically a non-issue.

      That said, I'd just keep him. He is a forced season keeper ATM due to his consistency of returns, not his price rises.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Thanks guys, appreciate it.
        I'll keep him long term but was interested in comments.
        (took me ages scrolling through rules to figure out why the buy and sell prices are different!)

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. i still have him since gw1
      the thing about me is that i always have a good bench
      so sometimes i benched him for sterling
      i think he is still doing very well so dnt see a reason why i should ship him off
      thats my 6th non brilliant season in the game so i think i qualify as a veteran the same way as shane duffy does ;)

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. I think with your rank you are closer to Rooney than duff.
        Thanks for the tips

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
  4. Hey guys!
    Thinking of the WC even though I don’t have many injuries. I feel that I’ll gain I nice profit from the future rises and it’s all round better. Not confident in Baines and some others so it’s better off investing in other places and strengthen the squad.

    What do we think? So many choices! Haha. Best to make my mind up today so I can avoid potential price rises and commit. Thanks in advanced gentlemen :)

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Your team is fine. Definitely not wildcardable.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Yeah, I see that...
        Always nice to freshen it up and take a gamble at current form.
        Would you recommend Cazorla + Hazard --> Walcott and Silva leaving me 2.0 for Ba to Suarez? Just a -4 point hit..

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Cazorla and Hazard are great. Look at this week! I would keep them.

          Simple answer is no I would not recommend that.

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. I think your defence sucks balls, and you need some Chelsea cover. Other than that looks good.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. rubbish...his defence is way better than yours anyway

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Hmmm... yeah, defence could take some work but at the moment no-one is really producing the goods.
      IMO, Baines too simply too much cash consuming. By getting rid of him it would help me free up some funds to upgrade where needed.

      Don't recommend a Silva swap? At the end of the day, I have no City players otherwise and Silva is hit for a price hike and a point boost.
      Lambert and Ba need to leave, don't have faith in the one bit.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. stoke and sunderland look pretty good for a few weeks so i think selling Baines is a decent option for's a big decision though...if all your defenders are cheap and the big teams start getting cleanies lots of other people will sail those ships

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
  5. So is there any chance that Ba's price will fall this gw?

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Why would it?

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Hmm... hope not!

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Yes because people are fickle and racist

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. You give me hope.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
  6. Season keepers. This is the group just below 'must-have' players (I dont believe there are any of those btw). I define them as players you can play every week without worry, and could reasonably keep and never drop, barring injury. Who do you think is on this list? My initial thoughts:

    GK: none
    DEF: Baines, Rafael
    MF: Hazard, Mata, Bale, Cazorla, Silva, Fellaini, Michu, Morrison
    FWD: RVP, Suarez, Tevez, Berbatov

    Any others?

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. I would add bego & giroud.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Demba Ba, Kompany perhaps if he wasn't so frightfully expensive.
      Also don't agree with Rafael - whose to say that by Jan when United's defense is at full strength he'll still start?

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Not sure if Rafa is a must have but I disagree. I think he will be a main stay because they lack creativity and he brings some.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Even I think he's United's best RB. But if they're in the Champions League by Jan I don't see him having played every game in the season. And the worst part about rotation is that you miss the easy home game. Just ask Patrice.

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. IMO these are the few actual season keepers if there is such a thing:
      GK: Begovic
      DEF: Baines
      MID: Fellaini, Michu, Nolan, Sterling
      FWD: RVP, Tevez

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. That's interesting, especially the MIDs. You're assuming we can add/drop the expensive MIDs, who are interchangeable, and have gone with the handful of lower priced & therefore great value ones.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Exactly. Some players are just too good for their price range (Baines and RVP are the exceptions). Berbatov is another I could probably add in.

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. GK: Bego, Jussi
      DEF: Baines
      MF: Hazard, Mata, Cazorla, Michu, Silva
      FWD: RVP, Suarez, Tevez, Berbatov

      I wish i could play a starting 11 like this every week :(

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    5. GK: One of Ruddy, Bego, Jussi
      DEF: Not Baines
      Mid: Those you mentioned, except Hazard because Mata is better.
      FWD: Everyone bar Pogrebnyak and his dog

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Based on this GW's performance, it seems I have Pog's dog (and captained him) ;)

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    6. Interesting. Id add Ba to the list though. As a Hazard owner, i wouldnt have in there believe it or not.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    7. defenders are never season keepers for me
      sterling and michu if bought with their initial price are
      rvp and suarez too because they can score as well as assist so even when they go through a dry spell they still return couple of assists
      this season one of hazard mata is a season keeper and also rotating between the two is not such a bad idea but with the lack of chelsea strikers these two will provide the most firepower
      other than that, carzola and silva are as close as it gets

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  7. Can someone explain to me why Hang get a -1 for 3 goals conceaded. He wasnt on the pitch when any of those went in?

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Continue to lose points when sent off, always been the way (apart from when it wasn't in the old days)

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Because that is the rule regarding red cards

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Go to the FPL 'Rules' section. There's all you need to know in there.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. season 7 week 12 michael giles reads the rules

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  8. Ruiz>Tevez for -8 hit? Fell suspended, Ruiz was doing well for me in recent weeks, but now injured, and my 5th mid is Dyer, not wanting that and Ivan moved back to CB so not too keen on him (vs Mancity too) and Gorkss and Nelson won't help. should i?


    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Anyone within 10.2 (got Suarez)

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. You mean -4?

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. No, -8, did some other transfers b4 this

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. It's still a transfer for -4...what's done is done.

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. i know, i just meant -8 in total

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Suarez

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. look above ;)

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. DemBa

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
  9. hello lads ,
    here is my full team

    Begovic/ cerny

    ivanovic mtscker Mccartney Baird Williamson

    Mata Hazard Bale Maloney britton

    Suarez Ba Tevez
    got 2.4 in the bank , 1 FT

    was thinking to Get RVP for a 4 point hit , which should i get rid of, tevez or Ba ?

    Hazard/Ba to sterling/RVP perhaps ?

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Replied on previous page. Lot of work needs doing imo

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. thanks bro!

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
  10. Looking at fixtures and form, Liverpool look strong weeks 14 - 21

    Maybe a defender and Suarez looking very good options

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. don't recommend a defender, but f u really want a LIV defender, it's gotta be Skrtel or GJ

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Maybe Enrique gonna make a decent comeback like when he first played for LRC

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Having the same grav is going to be confusing :|

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. I'm going to have your name too, that would be very confusing

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Suarez is a very good option.
      Not sure on the defence but Wisdom is probably worth a look.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  11. Who do you think is a better long term option.
    A) Tevez
    B) Suarez


    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. Tevez clearly. He plays for a team that will win the league probably. Liverpool are going to struggle at different points and they won't be smashing teams 5-0 on the reg.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Good point......

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
      2. Not as clear as you think, imo.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Then why did you ask for our opinions?

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. So its invalid to disagree over the same?

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
          2. He's saying it's not clear cut, you're saying it is .. he wants feedback as to what other people think - that's why.

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
            1. Yeah and I gave my utterly biased opinion :D

              • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. B) Cuz he's more secure and he's he creates a lot more chances, he's the focal point of the team too so he'll almost always receive the final ball

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Would like both, but look at Liverpools upcoming fixtures and the fact Suarez scores nearly all the goals, has to be Suarez.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Mate, I appreciate your joining of the Santi fanclub...but did you have to pick the same grav??

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. SHIT :)

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
        2. How did I not notice that, I've been commenting and seeing your comments all morning!!!

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
            • 2 years, 1 month ago
      2. lol, 1 of u gotta change ur grav :lol:

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. Toughy ... maybe Suarez, as he is at no risk at all of rotation.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Good H2H. My transfers cost me a narrow win i think, but i think my moves will hold good in the long term. Whadya think?

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Yeah looks like I've nicked it.. Transfers close to call ... all 4 look like decent options at the moment to me. Some thinking to do at my end this week ...

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. Initial thoughts are i am looking at something like
            Baines -> Cuellar
            Fellaini -> AJ/Sess
            Berbs -> Aguero

            in the next few weeks.

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
            1. But Sunderland haven't exactly convinced me yet. Still monitoring.

              • 2 years, 1 month ago
    5. Suarez: no rotation, focal point, more goal attempts per minute (albeit low accuracy), potential price gain, ability to earn unwarranted penalties, potential move to MCI

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    6. i love the security of knowing since monday that my player is starting
      thus suarez

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    7. Too close to call imo. Suarez would shave it as hes the focal point of Liverpools attack while Citys goals can come from Aguero, Dzeko, Silva, even Kolarov and Toure! Liverpools goals dont seem to be coming from anyone else atm

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    8. Tevez. The what is now close to 1M is a bonus.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  12. @Tinkerman...when I said Ba is better value than Suarez I didn't literally mean he has scored more points than Suarez since I bought him. I mean he is better value because he has got a lot of points and is cheaper...yes I probably would have been 20 points better off with Suarez...but I wouldn't have had other players in my team because of it. Therefore he is better value as I could accomodate other points scorers in other areas.

    7.7 vs 9.5 (Suarez's price back then)

    I don't regret buying Ba for one second over Suarez.

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. They don't necessarily have the be exclusive.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. Of course, I just get annoyed that it's all about who is the most 'supreme' value. It's all relative to your team's setup. And no-one anticipated this Suarez form...Ba has more history of form in the league so it was a no brainer.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. not really
          while suarez did not always score heavily, he was always a dangerous man in front of goal
          everybody anticipated this run for suarez especially since borini' injury
          the only history ba has is scoring 16 goals in 20 games and then scoring 1 in the remainig of the season

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. LOL

            That's not a good history, is it?

            He played out of position when Cisse arrived. Now he's back being the main man. 16 goals in 20 games!! This is why I bought him you buffoon!

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
        2. I feel like this is the season suarez shouldnhave had last year coming off the back of a successful copa america. But it didnt work out. Also he was prolific for ajax, people seem to forget

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
  13. Is anyone else getting twitchy about Baines? Not producing the goods at the moment.

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. sacrified next week's potentially rewarding fixture and transferd him out to raise funds for silva

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. exact same move.. did you replace with enrique?

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Think I'll be shipping next week

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    3. Not after last weeks 2 bonus points. Im sticking for now.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    4. Sticking till after the Arsenal game myself.

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
  14. Absolute nightmare week, so would really appreciate some advice. I only have 0.2 in bank, so not sure if I can do anything with Fonte with that budget. Considering just sticking and addressing it next week with a 2 FT. Is this good enough though, any ideas guys appreciated?


    Rafael - Fonte - Baines

    Mata - Sterling - Bale (vc) - Nolan

    Suarez - Berbatov - RVP (c)

    McCarthy - McCartney - Nelson - Fellani

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. good call
      there isnt much u can do about fonte so keep him adn see what happens next week especially with everton bad run of fixtures

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. thanks, you have a bad week and it makes you feel like you need to react, the old patience runs thin. I would like Silva but Bale looks good this week. Team needs some adjustments and I cant do much with the one transfer.

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. yeah and i especially like to take a hit when i have 2 FTs
          historically it always works wonders and feels like a semi WC

          • 2 years, 1 month ago
          1. yep I was thinking 3 next week, clear some dead wood out.

            • 2 years, 1 month ago
  15. Begovic




    Methinks:- Baines to Ridgewell and Jelavic to Ba leaving cash to upgrade the defense?

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
  16. FPL GODS, PLS get Silva a blank and a yellow next week so his price won't rise more :pray:

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. He will blank, I can feel it in the hair.

      (I'm touching Silva's hair right now)

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
      1. :lol: tiny bit of hope shimmering..........

        • 2 years, 1 month ago
        1. Glimmering*

          He uses pantene


          • 2 years, 1 month ago
            • 2 years, 1 month ago
  17. With the emergence of "Tier 2" strikers in the 8-10m range such as Ba, Giroud, Tevez and Suarez, is anyone considering downgrading RVP for them? You could save up a significant amount of cash (5m) and get pretty much the same kind of scores.

    I'm not quite brave enough to do this as I know how RVP can explode but it could be a nice tactic that could pay off.

    • 2 years, 1 month ago
    1. i did it>Suarez

      • 2 years, 1 month ago
    2. Check Mr. Van Persie's fixtures.

      1. Yeah of course you would hold short term but long term it could work

    3. 1) You'll lose a lot of value.
      2) Every time RVP scores a brace your rank will plummet.

      If you've got the marbles though its a decent move.

  18. Would like to offload one of either Baines, Jelavic or Pienaar but with NOR up next I am unsure?

    I'd also like to do Foster > Ruddy

    Shall I just my 1FT for now?

  19. With 1ft, who would you trade out for the next GW

    a) Baines
    b) Pienaar
    c) Jelavic
    d) Foster
    e) No-one, save it

  23. did anyone see on here yesterday this guy who'd done a breakdown of where the points were being scored (def mid attack) and then worked out as a percentage how much of your budget you should spend on each position? i probably haven't explained it very well but it was probably one of the best pieces of stat usage i've seen on here. he must be a gmabling man. brilliant info. anyone see it? i want to look at the figures again!!
