Having indulged in the numbers behind the top ten individuals in Defence and Midfield, we end our series of articles for members by examining the top performers over the Christmas period amongst the forwards.

Just as Steven Gerrard dominated in the midfielders bracket over the Christmas period, Luis Suarez reigned supreme amongst the strikers. With five goals and two assists making him the most profitable forward on show, surpassing even Robin Van Persie’s FPL returns in the same window.

  1. So, simple question - Suarez or Baines?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. ccc

      Suarez

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Baines! Look at Everton's fixtures.

      Can afford to wait on Suarez for 3 or 4 gameweeks.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. good luck with that

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. Agreed. Great for next 4, even with DGWs on. Was going for Baines, but very tempted both Baines and Fellaini

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  2. Re Lawro's Everton divinations: http://i.imgur.com/P0KZC.png

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. lol not surprised to see Liverpool near the bottom as well, he predicts them to win every game

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  3. On my WC atm. Planning Puncheon > Gerrard next week...should I do Puncheon > Ramirez this week?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Poe que no Los dos?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  4. With only Mata, Ba and Clyne for the DGW, is there anyone else worth bringing in for a hit?

    Ramirez? Cole perhaps?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Ramirez maybe, for who?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. +9

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
  5. People with a second WC handy, Mignolet is a good enough stand alone keeper till GW31.

    Mignolet + 3.9 is a good option imo

    WHAM wig SWA rdg ARS wbrom FUL qpr NOR post which the tough fixtures start.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Certainly considering him with Federici...or maybe him alone. He usually bags the odd CS + save points.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  6. After much deliberation I've decided to do Suarez -> Baa just for the DGW, I'll get Suarez back in for the Norwich game. After last nights disaster for Chelsea Baa is going to get plenty of game time.....cant wait for the weekend games now... Bring it On !

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. did same. suarez to baaaa + gerard to hazard cuz i got mata, so ,3 chelsea players.
      after dgw change back. ba to suarez, hazard to wallcot...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  7. What to do with O'Brien? Am on WC so switching to Demel would be easy. Not sure which one to have for the double and beyond.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Big Sam says he a while away. I've changed to Demel.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. ccc

      I have O'Brien as well, but considering bringing in Demel for O'Brien or R. Martin.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  8. is henriquez nailed on?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. As Kone's gone AWOL with ACON, I'd say 95%

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. is he not then a sure thing for a third forward for a person on their wildcard?

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. It'll cause problems later.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  9. I'm about to buy Football Manager for the first time since 2002...bad mistake? Life gone possibly?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. You'll notice that quite a bit has changed. If you thought it was time consuming before...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. I can't see to take this hat off. I want my cap back!

          • Has Moderation Rights

          Lovely.

          I'll buy it before my next hols.

          Have you used it on iPad by any chance?

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. i used it on an adroid tablet and an iphone and it has ruined my life with its addictiveness :D

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
  10. ccc

    My Defence. Any advice?

    Shawcross & Cameron vs. Chelsea
    Gibbs vs. Man City
    R. Martin vs. Newcastle
    O'Brien likely injured out of the DGW. Should I do Martin > Demel for a hit?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  11. Decided on the WC... mightn't be on tomorrow heading to England for the weekend and seeing the United Liverpool game on Sunday. Extremely Excited :D

    Anyway.

    Jaask (Foster)
    Luiz, Gibbs, Harte Demel, Davies
    Mata. Bale, Walcott, Michu, Gaston
    RVP, Ba, Lambert

    1.1 in the bank.

    It's a little DGW influenced. Mata - Cazorla, Gaston - Cole-Nolan next week for -4.
    Fingers crossed :|

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Dude lucky you. Its my dream to go to a match one day! how much were tickets?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  12. What do you think is the best way to go? I have no Chelsea coverage so far.

    A. Cuellar, Suarez > Luiz, Ba
    B. Nastasic, Cazorla > Azpi, Mata
    C. Foster, Berba > Turnbull, Ba

    All for a hit.

    Cheers

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. C)
      but can u do it without turnbull for foster?.. turnbull is not guaranteed

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Berbatov at home to Wigan and with his improving numbers is not the right choice I believe..
      Was debating the turnball move but maybe Hilario will come in!

      A for me by a good margin !

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  13. New post

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  14. Ha, in order to have Suarez in my team, I have to have 3 Reading players - Federici, Mariappa, and Guthrie :D

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. They will all score huge points this week, I feel Guthrie especially is just waiting to explode..

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  15. A or B gentlemen:

    A)
    Bego / Turnbull
    Zabaleta / Gibbs / Davies / Demel / Harte
    Bale / Walcott / Mata / Michu / Marveaux
    Suarez / RVP / Ba

    B)
    Bego / Turnbull
    Baines / Gibbs / Davies / Demel / Harte
    Bale / Walcott / Mata / Michu / Fellaini
    Ruiz / RVP / Ba

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. So basically:

      (A) Suarez, Marveaux and Zabaletta
      (B) Ruiz, Fellaini and Baines

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Have u read the numbers game - forwards article? Suarez is a must have. So i'd do A) but i wouldnt be that sure about marveaux or turnbull

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Toby, have you decited on your captaincy?:)

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
  16. am I right in thinking that O'Brien is looking unlikely to make it back for the DGW23?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Pau

      hope not

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  17. Who to bench out of

    A) Cazorla (also got Walcott)
    B) Pienaar
    C) Hernandez

    Team linked

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. personally bench B

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  18. A. Suarez + Fellaini / Michu > Ba + Mata -4

    or

    B. Defoe + Berbatov + Michu > Mata + Ba + Lambert?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. I'm considering doing A as well.. As you see below.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  19. Suarez- Ba
    And
    Michu - Mata for a hit ?

    Already have Luiz...

    Suarez and Michu are the two in form players right now and replacing them seems crazy
    What are people's thoughts?
    Have a WC in a couple of weeks to play so I ll be able to mix it up again later.
    Want to capitalise on the DGW..

    Mata looks like he's going to go crazy. Ba might not start both games...
    If I don't bring in Mata , I'm considering captaining David Luiz too.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. watching the game the other night i think Hazard is more likely than Mata to have a run of good fpl points...Only one game but that's how it looked on the night...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Taking out Suarez or Michu for a hit aint good business

        I'm captaining Luiz (over Torres)

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Thinking of just the Suarez/ Ba move and seeing how Ba goes.
          That will leave 2.0 for next week and the WC the following week !

          Cheers

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. Interesting -- there are no certs in this game!
        Mata, hazard, Oscar, lamps, Torres, Ba

        Who knows what those guys and BENITEZ will do..
        Mata can do no wrong according to the polls and the above article!

        Chelsea might be set up for a fall this Gameweek!
        Wouldn't be the first time..

        Re considering any HIT now..

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  20. Joe Cole looked lively the last day, anybody thinking of getting him in as a cheeky differential??

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Bueller? Anyone?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Everyone will tell you not to. But that's what makes him a differential

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  21. Need help with who to bench out of:

    Fellaini bale Walcott mata Michu
    Berbatov RVP Ba

    I'm currently thinking Michu...

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. tough one. I've got Michu on the bench atm

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Bench ba. Probs start on bench both games

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  22. My defense:
    Begovic/Tremmel
    Davies/Harte/O'Brien/Baker/Cameron

    Tremmel/O'Brien -> Turnbull/MartinR?
    Next week:
    Turnbull/Baker -> Cerny/Demel?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. If taking hits.. May as well get in. 2x gameweek defender

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  23. who to play? Puncheon double GW or Dzeko ???

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Puncheon could easily get 2 + 2. Whereas dzeko could score 2 goals. But then again who knows

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  24. I've chosen the Wildcard option for better or worse..
    Mignolet (Szcesney)

    Shaw, Luiz, Harte. (Demel, Gibbs)

    Mata, Fellaini, Walcott, Ramirez, ( Snodgrass)

    RvP, Ba, Ruiz

    0.1 in the account.
    Would really appreciate feedback on this one!
