The Stock Check

The Stock Check – Sunday

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.

          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 🙂

                            HBA might score big points but he's way too inconsistent to be owned long term.

                          Ivanovic would be my priority thisweek. Perhaps.to Cuellar or a risky punt on an oop enrique

                            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

                              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?

                                  You would normally keep him and I'd do the same.
                                  You could sell him any time though.

                                    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.

                                      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.

                                        I'll keep him long term but was interested in comments.

                                        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 😉

                                        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.

                                                      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.

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:

                                                                      Also don't agree with Rafael - whose to say that by Jan when United's defense is at full strength he'll still start?

                                                                          Open Controls

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.

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

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.

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.

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?

I would like Silva but Bale looks good this week. Team needs some adjustments and I cant do much with the one transfer.

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.
