FFS Paddy Power Cup – Semi-Final Draw

We’re down to the last four now in the Fantasy Football Scout Paddy Power Cup VII now. The next round will take place over Gameweek 22 and will see David Bevan’s “ange1range1” take on Sir Alex Jnr’s “Milehigh” – the former is the clear underdog going into this one; although he’s nestled inside the top 7,000, David’s opponent has moved ominously into 34th place overall after yesterday’s seven fixtures.

Site regular “WildRover” is the early favourite heading into the second semi-final. He has moved up to 439th in the overall rankings ahead of tonight’s three remaining Gameweek 21 fixtures, while his opponent, Mr KK, is just inside the 30,000 mark. With winter wildcards available, however, the form book could easily be turned on its head as our quartet plot for silverware…

      PSG are some team now with Moura. Hopefully they can gel the players together and make some good chemistry.

                French Media said that Hoarau has left Doha, where PSG players are training. He could be going to China though.

                Amongst all the Ba/Torres chat one thing sticks out to me...RVP + Saurez are now essential. Scorers, generally starters, the hub of each team, what more do you want!

                Paired with either a mid-price in a 3-4-3, or budget for the bench in a 3-5-2. As a RVP/Saurez +Tevez owner, I'm thinking of getting the Afro fella back and going 3-5-2. My 6.0m left over will allow Ruiz nicely for the bench, or maybe Jones at 5.0m and invest a bit at the back?

                    Yep. Even before the Ba transfer talks, this was true.

                      Suarez and Studge could be interesting. I'd see Brendan asking Luis to drop in behind Studge, which could be good for creativity but could hit goal output. Studge would then a be a 'Pool Defoe. For the price, I'll be giving Studge serious WC consideration over Luis.

                          Ba to Chelsea and Bale to Madrid gives me perfect front 8 for the rest of the season::

                          Mata-Silva-Michu-Fellaini-Walcott

                          RVP-Suarez-Ruiz

                              Bale is far from confirmed afaik.

                                Get a cheaper bench fodder than Ruiz as he'll almost certainly be benched every week. Pog would be my choice. Use the cash to upgrade defence.

                                Could Chelsea not splashing major cash on a striker like Falcao actually have something to do with FFP or is Roman just tired of leaking cash?

                                    This summer:

                                    Torres out, Falcao in.

                                      Roman has been adamant about Chelsea washing it's financial face in the long-term, so part of the ongoing strategy. But I would imagine that FFP has pushed the expediency button for them.
