Versus – Rooney and Van Persie

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

As Man United approach an eye-catching run of games which could potentially see Sir Alex Ferguson’s side rack up the Fantasy returns, Wayne Rooney has staked a strong claim for consideration after bagging a brace for the second Gameweek in succession. Rooney’s stock has suffered a significant drop this season due to the arrival of Robin Van Persie but as the campaign unfolds, he’s starting to look a real differential, with many Fantasy managers even considering both forwards for a run of games which sees the Red Devils welcome Sunderland, Newcastle and West Brom to Old Trafford, in addition to trips to Swansea and Wigan in the next five:

  3. Which would you rather have over the next few weeks:

    A) Rooney and Snodgrass + 1.3 m

    B) RVP and Sidwell + 0.1 m

    [Other options to pair with Rooney include Nolan, Walters, Routledge, Duff, Pienaar, or Lennon].

    Thanks!

    1. Snodgrass looks like he could score soon, not nolan

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
    2. RVP and Puncheon/ Sterling.

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
    3. riise

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  4. So then who does everyone think the're gunna get?

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
  5. 2 Free transfers this week with 2m to play with...advice please?
    A)Cuellar, Fletcher --> Nastasic, Berbatov
    B)Cuellar, Fletcher --> Evans, Berbatov
    C)Cuellar to similar priced defender (other defenders are garrido, enrique, demel, nelson) and Fletcher to Ba/Defoe?

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
    1. Right now probably Evans/Rafael Defoe

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  6. I'm playing Rooney and RVP up front (plus Defoe).

    Just not sure who to cap'n.

    Shriek maybe...

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
    1. Though other options include fellaini, bale, Michu...

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
      1. 'wrong with Defoe?

        • 2 years, 2 months ago
  7. Are people keeping berba?

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
    1. Unfortunately.

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
    2. I sold Berba and got Defoe

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  8. Anyone know if Bale and Enrique will be fit for this weekend?

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
    1. and Walcott????

      I have all 3 atm :(

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
      1. and I expect them all to miss out tbh

        • 2 years, 2 months ago
    2. Bale *should* be ok from what AVB has said.

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  9. what about this transfers:
    out: ba, fletcher and RVP
    in: suarez, defoe, rooney

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  10. Begovic (Tremmel)
    Rafael, Enrique, O'Brien, (Mc'Cartney, Gorkss)
    Fellaini, Michu, Mata, Gervinho (Sterling)
    Van Persie, Suarez, Ba

    I have one free transfer and 1.4m in the bank. Thinking of switching Ba with Tevez, leaving 0.2m in the bank. Or maybe thinking of switching Enrique to Cameron and getting Bale instead of Gervinho leaving 0.1m in the bank. But then I wouldn't be able to get Tevez. Advice please!

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
    1. Ba - Defoe considering Tottenham fixture?

      • 2 years, 2 months ago
  11. any news on the adam johnson injury after he came off on tuesday?

    • 2 years, 2 months ago
  12. Mignolet, (Ruddy)
    Enrique, Rafael, Shawcross, (Fonte, Nelson)
    Michu, Sterling, Fellaini, Sessegnon -> Bale, (Puncheon)
    RVP, Suarez, Berbs

    Got 1 free transfer and 3.1m in the bank.
    Bale for Sessengon is what I'm thinking but obviously he's a doubt.

    ARE THERE ANY OTHER GOOD MIDFIELD CHOICES??

    Such a small quantity of solid choices this season.

    • 2 years, 2 months ago

    Jussi
    shorey,rafael,figeuroa
    walcott,michu,fellaini sterling
