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 !!!

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Looks nice.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. I could only dream for a team that costs that much. :(

      • 1 year, 11 months 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 :)

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Ben Arfa > Oscar
      Guthrie > Puncheon/Sterling
      Ivanovic > Cuellar
      Jenkinson > Garrido

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Cheers !

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Barfa -> mata

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. HBA > Silva.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. so you would take out HBA first ?

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. HBA might score big points but he's way too inconsistent to be owned long term.

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. yeah that's what i fear, Southampton might be team he scored against :(

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. Ivanovic would be my priority thisweek. Perhaps.to Cuellar or a risky punt on an oop enrique

      • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Jenkinson to Enrique or Garrido i m thinking. Enrique being OOP

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. Oh forgot you had 2.6! This option youre suggesting looks good!

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
      2. also the fact that next 3 fixtures are so thin n fast, i should be more concerned about my Bench

        • 1 year, 11 months 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?

     

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. You would normally keep him and I'd do the same.
      You could sell him any time though.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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!)

        • 1 year, 11 months 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 ;)

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. I think with your rank you are closer to Rooney than duff.
        Thanks for the tips

        • 1 year, 11 months 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.
    http://oi49.tinypic.com/6741z5.jpg

    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 :)

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Your team is fine. Definitely not wildcardable.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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..

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. Cazorla and Hazard are great. Look at this week! I would keep them.

          Simple answer is no I would not recommend that.

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. I think your defence sucks balls, and you need some Chelsea cover. Other than that looks good.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. rubbish...his defence is way better than yours anyway

        • 1 year, 11 months 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.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. stoke and sunderland look pretty good for a few weeks so i think selling Baines is a decent option for you...it'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

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
  5. So is there any chance that Ba's price will fall this gw?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Why would it?

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Hmm... hope not!

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Yes because people are fickle and racist

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. You give me hope.

        • 1 year, 11 months 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?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. I would add bego & giroud.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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?

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

        • 1 year, 11 months 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.

          • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

        • 1 year, 11 months 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.

          • 1 year, 11 months 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 :(

      • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Based on this GW's performance, it seems I have Pog's dog (and captained him) ;)

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    6. Interesting. Id add Ba to the list though. As a Hazard owner, i wouldnt have in there believe it or not.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months 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?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Continue to lose points when sent off, always been the way (apart from when it wasn't in the old days)

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Because that is the rule regarding red cards

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Go to the FPL 'Rules' section. There's all you need to know in there.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. season 7 week 12 michael giles reads the rules

      • 1 year, 11 months 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?

    A)Yes
    B)No

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Anyone within 10.2 (got Suarez)

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. You mean -4?

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. No, -8, did some other transfers b4 this

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. It's still a transfer for -4...what's done is done.

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. i know, i just meant -8 in total

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Suarez

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. look above ;)

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. DemBa

          • 1 year, 11 months 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 ?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. Replied on previous page. Lot of work needs doing imo

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. thanks bro!

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
  10. Looking at fixtures and form, Liverpool look strong weeks 14 - 21

    Maybe a defender and Suarez looking very good options

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. don't recommend a defender, but f u really want a LIV defender, it's gotta be Skrtel or GJ

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Maybe Enrique gonna make a decent comeback like when he first played for LRC

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Having the same grav is going to be confusing :|

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. I'm going to have your name too, that would be very confusing

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Suarez is a very good option.
      Not sure on the defence but Wisdom is probably worth a look.

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

    Why?

    • 1 year, 11 months 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.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Good point......

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
      2. Not as clear as you think, imo.

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. Then why did you ask for our opinions?

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. So its invalid to disagree over the same?

            • 1 year, 11 months 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.

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
            1. Yeah and I gave my utterly biased opinion :D

              • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Would like both, but look at Liverpools upcoming fixtures and the fact Suarez scores nearly all the goals, has to be Suarez.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Mate, I appreciate your joining of the Santi fanclub...but did you have to pick the same grav??

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
        1. SHIT :)

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
        2. How did I not notice that, I've been commenting and seeing your comments all morning!!!

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
            • 1 year, 11 months ago
      2. lol, 1 of u gotta change ur grav :lol:

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. Toughy ... maybe Suarez, as he is at no risk at all of rotation.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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?

        • 1 year, 11 months 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 ...

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. Initial thoughts are i am looking at something like
            Baines -> Cuellar
            Fellaini -> AJ/Sess
            Berbs -> Aguero

            in the next few weeks.

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
            1. But Sunderland haven't exactly convinced me yet. Still monitoring.

              • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    6. i love the security of knowing since monday that my player is starting
      thus suarez

      • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    8. Tevez. The what is now close to 1M is a bonus.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. They don't necessarily have the be exclusive.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

        • 1 year, 11 months 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

          • 1 year, 11 months 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!

            • 1 year, 11 months 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

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
  13. Is anyone else getting twitchy about Baines? Not producing the goods at the moment.

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. sacrified next week's potentially rewarding fixture and transferd him out to raise funds for silva

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. exact same move.. did you replace with enrique?

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    2. Think I'll be shipping next week

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    3. Not after last weeks 2 bonus points. Im sticking for now.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
    4. Sticking till after the Arsenal game myself.

      • 1 year, 11 months 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?

    Begovic

    Rafael - Fonte - Baines

    Mata - Sterling - Bale (vc) - Nolan

    Suarez - Berbatov - RVP (c)

    McCarthy - McCartney - Nelson - Fellani

    • 1 year, 11 months 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

      • 1 year, 11 months 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.

        • 1 year, 11 months 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

          • 1 year, 11 months ago
          1. yep I was thinking 3 next week, clear some dead wood out.

            • 1 year, 11 months ago
  15. Begovic

    Baines/Hughes/Demel/Cueller/Nelsen

    Fellaini/Mata/Bale/Cazorla/Sterling

    Berb/RVP/Jelavic

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

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  16. FPL GODS, PLS get Silva a blank and a yellow next week so his price won't rise more :pray:

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. He will blank, I can feel it in the hair.

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

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. :lol: tiny bit of hope shimmering..........

  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.

    1. i did it>Suarez

    2. Check Mr. Van Persie's fixtures.

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
      1. Yeah of course you would hold short term but long term it could work

        • 1 year, 11 months ago
    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?

      first thing u should decide is how many players u want to keep

  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

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
    1. B) he is playing poorly IMHO

      • 1 year, 11 months ago
  20. Sticking with Baines for Norwich and Arsenal then thinking of.switching to raf or Enrique (if nailes on) mad to keep him for Arsenal?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  21. adam johnson or sessegnon?

    • 1 year, 11 months ago
  22. Bego / Ruddy
    Clyne /Turner / McAuley / Shawcross / Reid
    Mata / Hazard / Bale / Noble / Sterling
    Tevez / Ba / Suarez

    Any suggestions for the upcoming fixtures?

  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!!
