January

In stark contrast to their summer transfer dealings, Liverpool were quick out the blocks yesterday as the Reds made their first significant move of the winter window by snapping up Daniel Sturridge on a long-term contract from Chelsea.

The Anfield club missed out on targets such as Gylfi Sigurdsson and Clint Dempsey prior to the start of the season and having allowed Andy Carroll a loan move to West Ham, Brendan Rodgers’ attacking options have been somewhat limited in the opening five months of the campaign. After announcing the deal, Liverpool’s managing director Ian Ayre admitted the club were keen to get their business for the winter up and running:

“It was always going to be an important one. As we’ve said all along, the most important thing was to continue to strengthen the team – and clearly up front. Daniel is somebody we’ve always had in our sights and somebody the manager has had huge interest in right from the start. It was important to us that we did all of the work ahead of the transfer window in talking to Chelsea and the player and his representatives. We made sure we did that so we could have him hit the ground running in January – and here we are today on the second and we’re all done and dusted, so we’ll look forward to seeing him in a Liverpool shirt and on the pitch.”

The Statistics

For a 23-year-old, Sturridge has led a somewhat nomadic existence. A youth career that began at Coventry and Villa led the forward to Man City but, in spite of his renowned self-assurance, he struggled to make any real impact at the Etihad, with 21 appearances harvesting five goals and three assists over three seasons.

Snapped up by Chelsea in the summer of 2009 as his contract ran down, Sturridge spent a total of four seasons at the Bridge but his only real impact came mainly under Andre Villas-Boas last term. Starring on the wing in the 2011/12 campaign, he produced 11 goals and five assists from 30 appearances, compared to a combined haul of two goals and a pair of assists in 33 first-team outings over the rest of his time in London.

Indeed, Sturridge’s most impressive Premier League displays came on loan at Bolton in 2010/11. Handed a regular role at the Reebok under Owen Coyle, Sturridge – playing through the middle in a 4-4-2 – produced eight strikes in just 12 appearances; a sign of the goalscoring capabilities he hopes to bring to Anfield.

The Prospects

Upon arriving at the club, Sturridge once again reiterated a desire to play centrally but, within Rodgers’ default 4-3-3 formation, a role on the flank looks the likeliest outcome. With Luis Suarez’s displays through the middle bringing the Uruguayan 15 goals already, the former Chelsea man is expected to be handed a right flank berth, swapping wings with the likes of Raheem Sterling or Stewart Downing during matches – a tactic Rodgers has employed on plenty occasions this term.

Indeed, Sturridge’s arrival may well have a knock-on effect on the likes of Sterling. With his threadbare squad stretched to the limit this season, Rodgers has had little option but to play the teenager in every match since Gameweek 2 but cited fatigue when dropping Sterling to the bench during the recent festive fixture pileup – with more options on the flanks, he may choose to manage the teenager’s appearances slightly more efficiently. Downing’s game time is clearly at threat – he has started seven of the last eight now but Rodgers is now afforded the chance to pick and choose his wide men on either side of Suarez, while the likes of Suso and Jonjo Shelvey look set to drop further down the pecking order.

In a sense, the signing of Sturridge is somewhat at odds with Rodgers’ passing game ethos. Accusations of selfishness have been somewhat justified – the new arrival’s penchant for the spectacular, shooting from distance when a simple pass seems the obvious option; this will have to be reined in as he adjusts to his new surrounds. Rodgers talked up his new acquisition yesterday, pinpointing the qualities that persuaded him to splash the cash:

“He will give us power and presence at the top end of the field but the biggest thing is his hunger to perform. We are bringing in a player who knows he has to perform as he will be playing with one of the biggest clubs in the world. He has got quality. If he wants to stay at the top level, this is probably his last chance. I think he will prove a big hit and give us another attacking thread.”

Priced at 7.3 in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) and 8.5 in the Sky Sports game, Sturridge’s appeal is dented by his classification as a forward. With Sterling priced at 5.6 and listed as a midfielder in FPL, his 20% owners will be happy to hold, while Suarez’s electrifying performances surely make him the must-have Liverpool forward; therefore keeping Sturridge firmly in the Fantasy background. A regular role under Rodgers will certainly afford him the platform to justify his own self-belief but with Liverpool offering plenty other options such as Steven Gerrard and Glen Johnson elsewhere, it may well take something quite spectacular for Sturridge to rocket onto Fantasy radars and come under consideration for our three-man forward lines.

  1. Hey guys, posted here yesterday but just want more opinions on my spanking new wildcard team.

    Begovic
    O'Brien, Sagna, Davies
    Michu, Walcott, Mata, Bale, Fellaini
    RVP, Suarez

    Subs; Bunn: Ruiz, Martin R, Mariappa

    Cheap defense but really dont care, going all out attack :-)

    Comments much appreciated.

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. It's brilliant.

      I am going to copy it.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. apart from Sagna who is rubbish.

        and Mariappa because I don't know who he is.

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. Cool thanks, have no idea who to replace sagna and mariappa with though, even if sagna was turned into someone even cheaper, doesnt leave much room to improve elsewhere coz front 7 is awesome.

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
          1. Sagna's a real bargain at 5.1 I think..

            Mariappa is starting every week and only 3.8, perfect for his price..

            • 3 years, 1 month ago
        2. Mariappa sells ice cream at half time

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. Like it. Replace Mariappa?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. same front 7 as most people

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    4. If you're benching ruiz at home to Wigan, you may as well upgrade a defender somewhere I reckon ...

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. I was thinking this also, but am stumped as to who to upgrade really

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. Maybe Martin for me - not sure when you'll want 2 x Norwich defenders.

          Ruiz --> Pog, Martin --> ??

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
          1. Interesting, will have a play around with that idea, front 7 are staying as they are so other than possible defence change im sorted, thanks :-)

            • 3 years, 1 month ago
    5. alot of peeps are going for the 5 man midfield, its lazy and over optimistic. how will you go up if your team format is the same as those in front of you, think about out for a minute!!

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Nobody in my ML will do this for their team, plus they dont have the funds, im second, but leader has been extremely lucky. Defenders are not the way to go this season, attack is, they'll be teams with same players for sure, but the teams that do will do extremely well, hence higher finish and ML victory.

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. michu, bale and fella are nailed on, the others you can rotate

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
          1. I dont get it, why would you want to rotate walcott and mata? Play them every game. Just done ruiz to pog and upgraded sagna :-)

            • 3 years, 1 month ago
    6. Ruiz to Pog and bank the cash, it's a guarantee you will want/need to make changes in the next few weeks. You really want some flexibility if you have injuries to your front 8 or need to upgrade the likes of Sagna or Martin.
      It also removes any selection headaches, a big plus imho

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Its a fair point, will have a mess about see how it looks :-)

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
  2. A lot of people seem to think Fulham will spank Wigan. However, this season has been really topsy-turvy. Even the big boys get surprisingly beaten (Man Utd v Spurs & Norwich; City vs Sunderland; Chelsea vs QPR). I have a feeling Wigan will beat Fulham. I don't see any of their players as essential.

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Could easily happen, it's just the combination of Ruiz & Berbatov which is tempting. They're a good FPL duo.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  3. Ok, since everyone is doing it I might as well... :) Which version of my WC team do you prefer guys?

    A)
    RUDD - Begovic
    NASTASIC - J Evans - DEMEL - Wilson - Davies
    Michu - Fellaini - Puncheon - Bale - Mata
    RVP - Suarez - AGUERO

    B)
    FEDERICI - Begovic
    ZABALETA - J Evans - BAINES - Wilson - Davies
    Michu - Fellaini - Puncheon - Bale - Mata
    RVP - Suarez - BERBATOV

    Cheers for your time! :)

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. B, Stick to the template.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Cheers Parmtree... :)

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. shocking TV 😯
      I will go for A

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. I know mate... Couldn't believe myself the amount of money I could spend... Cheers for your input!

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. A. Very close to the team I'm thinking of.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    4. I'd replace Rudd with Bunn (to have a 2nd active keeper) and downgrade Demel to a 3.8 cheapie. Just in case Bego misses the odd game.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. True... Good point mate... Would be quite a hassle to be without a keeper... Thanks for your input!

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    5. B looks fine to me

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  4. Anyone going for DDG in the wildcard?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. When Champions League back, Fergie will rotate the keepers again

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. 5.5 for a rotation risk? spend extra 0.3 on evans and get more stability and some attacking threat. (if ManU backline is what you are after)

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Not going for him personally, I just saw him in a few RMT's...

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
  5. Just got back from the local newspaper. They wanted to write a piece about me and my ranking. Being number one in my country for a while had caught their attention. 80p gap at the top of their league created for all the cities inhabitants, and number one out of 48.000 in Norway was obviously worth writing about. My wife is not too impressed, she is only annoyed that I watch footy every weekend, and my daughter is too young to even care. So I thought I would share it with you guys. I know you understand me. I'm also glad I have my 16 year old students who really think I am the greatest manager that have ever lived! :)
    And I must stress that I did not contact the newspaper. They contacted me! 😉

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Haha nice one... well done

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. But you'r 2nd in Norway 😕

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. Cool. How ironic you went out of the Cup in the first week!

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    4. Well, that is pretty cool. One part of me like to think I would decline, as it's just a silly game, but the truth is I would be flattered and enjoy every bit of it. :)

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    5. I thought this was a joke, especially as your name was Super-Hans.. But now I'm not sure 😐

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    6. well done!
      didn't know that fantasy football can get you into the news!!

      must be one of those stories to tell your children/grand children/grand grand children!

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Must be a quiet week in Norway... :)

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
      2. I know. They called me last week when I was number one. Annoying he got ahead of me by two points this week...! ;(

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
  6. Hi guys.

    Who do you all reckon will score more points ( not goals ) over the next 5 games Berba or Fellaini?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Fellaini

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. Fellaini

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. Could go either way. Both are fixture proof. But berba id say

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  7. Hey guys, looking for some suggestions on how to improve my team wildcard:

    Begovic, Jaaskalinen
    Demel, Davies, Ridgewell, Cuellar, Nelsen
    Mata, Fellaini, Michu, Cazorla, Ramirez
    Ba, Jelavic, RVP

    Thanks in advance !

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Nope, apparently zaha wants to go to Arsenal but palace prefer the package from man utd.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  8. a lot of talk of ppl avin a front 3 of RVP-SAUREZ-KUN ive ad this since gameweek 6 and I'm currently jus inside the top 60k which i believe is worse off then most ppl on this site, granted i should of given robin the armband more often but thought id let u guy know its not all gravy...baby lol

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. i tried a 3 "heavy hitter" option at the start but soon abandoned it...a lot of value elsewhere i think

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. yea I'm currently on wildcard and tempted to downgrade kun but jus cant bring myself to do it as he's only really jus started to return major points for me, if hes injured im thinking berb for 1 week and leavin the money in the bank to get him bak

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. Think the fact that Citeh haven't got European football to prepare for is tempting many.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. thats true and decided it for me he stays thanks

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. Aguero has not been good value first half of the season, but Citeh out of Europe and bound to finish the season strong, I expect him to be a great pick for the run in.

      It's the front 3 for my WC team. 😎

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  9. if a player gets to the 10 yellow card mark is it a 2 game ban??? just wondering...cant remember from last year

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. yes, suarez will be there in about 6 games...

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. cheers, ya just noticed he is on 7

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
  11. Any Hammers fans out there know who your back 4 are meant to be? Is Demel nailed on?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. anyone?

      Does Demel, Reid, Collins, O'Brien sound right?

      Where does Tomkins fir in all this?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
  12. QUESTION OF THE DAY:

    Are people ACTUALLY going to go to 3-5-2, or are they just saying they are? The very idea bemuses me, I really can't see mids like Fellaini [had his day in the sun this season], Hazard [rotation], Mata [rotation] and Cazorla [superb but not for FPL, he's had his one-off haul for this season] keeping up with much cheaper [nailed on!!!] strikers like Berbatov, Benteke and Fletcher. The very idea bemuses me...

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Evidently, you are bemused by the idea . . .

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Lol just noticed that I repeated that

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. I kind of agree with HECO. My WC will probably give me some benching headaches, but I will have five midfielders I will happily play (Looking at Fell, Michu, Nolan, Mata, Bale, or maybe even Walcott instead of Nolan), which I can just afford with some uber-cheap defenders and Bunn as backup goalie.

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
          1. Forgot to mention that would still involve a front three of RVP, Suarez, Berb.

            • 3 years, 1 month ago
            1. That does look good to be fair, you think Mata's gonna be nailed on after yesterday?

              • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. The thing is.. going for the expensive mids means you are taking those cheaper strikers such as Berbatov.

      The trade off is more like Michu vs Defoe, Bale vs Torres, Cazorla vs Tevez or Walcott vs Jelavic is it not?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. I think the idea is that, to have a true meaningful 3-5-2, the third stiker has to be like sub 5.5 or you may as well just play the 3rd striker over the 5th midfielder unless you absolutely obliterate your defence, which only leaves options like Pogrebnyak, Carlton Cole etc who are average, non-nailed on strikers

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. My current front 8 includes both, i.e. Berbatov and Pogrebnyak but with a pretty heavy midfield. I suppose it depends where your trade off lies.

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
          1. True that, I guess the question is if you back your midfield enough to get consistent returns, I think that with a midfield of heavy hitters, some weeks will be dissapointing while others will give you some massive green arrows

            • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. Well I think the concept is based on RVP and Suarez being the only two strikers worth owning. That's the 3-5-2 thing in a nutshell.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. I see where you are coming from, but I think that Benteke/Berbatov/Fletcher have proven that theory wrong over the course of the season so far, if you have one of them as your third striker, it also gives you loads more flexibility when injuries/suspensions start kicking in due to the availability of a decent 5th midfielder as opposed to a 3rd sriker who isn't going to deliver returns whch is who you would have to turn to if you were playing a 3-5-2, and also it frees up more money for a stronger defence IMO

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. If you look at Michu, Felliani and Walcott as effectively 3 extra strikers in MF slots, then playing 2 up front actually gives you 5 forwards!

          That's the appeal for me if I went with it.

          • 3 years, 1 month ago
  13. ol

    Any advice on my team:
    I have just activated the wildcard to try and squeeze Suarez in and have £0 in the bank - any better choices I could make? I am fairly happy with it but would appreicate the opinions of others.
    Thanks

    Begovic
    Baines, Sagna, Azpilicueta
    Mata, Walcott, Fellaini, Michu
    RVP, Suarez, Berbatov
    Subs Bunn, O'Brien, Davies, Sterling

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. Looks solid, I'd maybe consider squeezing Bale in there if you can...

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    2. Looks solid, I'd maybe consider squeezing Bale in there if you can.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
    3. standard team like every team else here.
      Bale maybe a problem though

      and good luck onbaines 😉

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. ol

        I've had Baines virtually all season and still think he will deliver - stubborn/stupid.
        Bale or Mata is the question. I think Mata will score slightly better when he plays but there is always rotation to worry about unlike with Bale. Is Sterling enough on the bench if Mata doesn't play?

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
    4. Nice but how can you afford it?

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. ol

        Built value over the season - £108.3 million affords that 15 exactly!

    5. I wouldn't have 3 defenders at that price, you'll never want to plat the other two.

      Downgrade one of those 3 and use the cash to get Bale for Walcott.

        I don't really want to ever play the other 2! I quite fancy Walcott to score well for the next few, especially with the double gameweek coming up.

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
        1. Fair enough. Maybe downgrade one anyway and store the cash so you can get him if required.

  16. Regretting wildcarding but dont want to miss out on dgw action, what scenario would you go for?

    A) Bale > Cazorla > Bale 2 transfers
    B) Cazorla > Bale 1 transfer
    C) Bale don't bother with Cazorla

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  17. Why Sagna over Gibbs?
    Why Zabs over Clichy?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
    1. gibbs is playing better - sagna doesn't look as good post injury.
      Zabs is less likely to be rotated with Richards out injured and Maicon being Poo.

      • 3 years, 1 month ago
      1. Good points. However, losing one of them for their team mate means I can have Ruiz over C.Cole. Are they really that much better?

        • 3 years, 1 month ago
  18. RMWCT

    Begovic– (Bunn)
    Davies – Demel – O'Brien – Mariappa – Nelsen (3 of these, depending on fixtures)
    Mata – Fellaini – Bale – Walcott – (Guthrie)
    Suarez – RVP – (Pogrebnyak)

    rotate Pog/Guth depending on fixtures

    potential Walcott/Pog/O'Brien -> Cuellar/Michu/Ruiz after DGW

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  19. NEW POST

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  20. How about this:

    Bego - Bunn
    Rafael - Sagna - Demel - Nelson - Fonte
    Mata - Bale - Michu - Fellaini - Punch
    RVP - Suarez - Berba

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  21. other than Reid and O'Brien, who is the Hammers most nailed-on defender? Tomkins? Demel? Collins?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
  22. I really, trully, don't know what to do until next GW. Last 10 days were all about FPL and now I'm lost with a lot of free time. I might just try to find some work.

    When you click on my link am I still Pravin Shet? I have no idea how this happened as that is not my name and I am not from India. My team used to be correctly linked - has this happened to anyone else? I have hopefully re-linked successfully...

    Nolan or Lennon?

    • 3 years, 1 month ago
