The Big Numbers – Gameweek 23

Joe Cole tops our ICT Index for the Gameweek so far, following his equalising goal and eye-catching display in the Hammers’ draw with QPR. With David Silva ranked second and West Brom’s Peter Odemwingie nestled in third, the weekend has seen a number of differentials put in strong statistical shifts.

Our members can, of course, get the full data behind the Index scores via our members area but, as always on a Sunday evening, we’ve compiled our guide to the figures that have turned our heads thus far in Gameweek 23…

    Would you rather:

    A - Sturridge + £3m

    B - Suarez

    It's gotta be A, right??

    Is Suarez + Ba -> Aguero + Sturridge (-4) a good move or save transfer??? Team would then be:

    Begovic – Federici

    Gibbs – Jones – Davies – Demel – Clyne

    Bale – Mata – Walcott – Michu – Puncheon

    RVP – Aguero – Sturridge (1.1m in bank)

    I think Ba will start 2 of the next 3 games.

    Start: reading
    Benched: Newcastle (yep against his former club)
    Start: WIGAN (as Torres will start in Europe)

    So now thinking whether the reading + WIGAN games are enough to stick with for the next 3 games.

    Christina (and the rest of you) I can't decide what to do. I want to keep Steve G (on pens, he's awesome, and he's on pens) despite his terrible two fixtures coming up. But then I miss out on Michu, whom I want. Which meaaaans that if I don't keep Stevie G, I'm back to owning the Power 5 (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, I guess...other than the fact that everyone wants that.) And I don't get a sweet differential like AJ as my 5th attacker. So I guess I'm down to 2 options:

    A) Power 5

    B) Gerrard+AJ

    Which one is it, fellow fantasy peeps? (and christina, if your'e on here still buddy.)

          well if you'll lose a lot of money getting him back then go with b. AJ has nice fixtures (I have Fletcher atm but looking at AJ GW26 when I sell him) Have you considered a different power 5 member over Gerrard for the next though?

      Neither, imo.

      Firstly, I think Liverpool have to hit a few more bumps before they settle, and you may find that he is not the man you want. Secondly, Michu is FAR more central to Swansea.

      A Johnson is someone you get in for double game weeks ...

      I would rather lose Suarez. RvP is expensive but he has shown he is worth it, so much consistency plus explosiveness. I think you can match Suarez's returns with Sturridge. You can not replicate RvP

      wow, maybe you should lose RvP.

      I all honesty I'd get a cheapie in for Silva and spend the 5 millionish saved upgrading ALF

    ok, there are a few people on here who's opinions I value, thoughts on the current wc draft

    Migs/Bunn

    Zaba, Evans, Fabio, Pearce, Davies

    Walcott, Mata, Fellaini, Michu, Guthrie

    RvP, Aguero, Fletcher

    0.5 in bank

    No Bale is a worry but I feel Theo and Mata offer more consistency with the same chance of explosiveness.

    'athevroy' thanks for your reply, I missed out replying to it. I actually agree- and that if we all have the same team it's pointless- but I need a bit of mainstream ness so I don't get killed every time an 'essentiL' scores , so I guess a balance is needed!
