Matchday Surgery

The Saturday Surgery

With ninety minutes to go before the gate drops down on our Gameweek decision making, there’s likely to be plenty still deliberating the day’s dilemmas. The first of two back-to-back double Gameweeks hands us the potential of strong returns, although we find ourselves somewhat at the mercy of Rafa Benitez: an unenviable position when considering, wildcards, transfers and the captaincy. Our Saturday Surgery Chatroom is now open to offer a crumb of comfort for those seeking real-time feedback for their theories and musings.

The day’s Dugout Discussion follows at 12.30 ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Loftus Road for the early kick-off. The pre-match preamble is looking purposeful on the touchline.

Mark Mark created the beast. He's now looking to tame it.”

    Any tips? Got the wildcard active.

    Bunn/Bego
    Sagna - Luiz - Clyne (Demel/R.Martin)
    Hazard - Bale - Walcott - Mata (Michu)
    Weimann - Lambert - VP

    Afraid of the rotation risk at Chelsea with Ba/Torres, so going for Hazard and Mata and then swapping Hazard to Nolan and brining Podolski in for Weimann next round.

    Simple problem:

    A) Fellaini and Lambert

    B) Bale and Pogrebnyak

    Which combo is better over the next 7-8 weeks?

      Same here. Prob get Podolski for next week, then Tevez back for QPR, then wildcard and decide whether to keep Tevez or sell for Fellaini in a 3-5-2!
