The Big Numbers – Gameweek 23

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Mark

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…

  1. jfr

    Would you rather:

    A - Sturridge + £3m

    B - Suarez

    It's gotta be A, right??

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  2. Who will win?

    Me: Fellaini, Lambert, Walcott (C), Demel and Jussi
    Him: 11 points and Joe Cole

    I am hopeful.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. You, by a country mile (which is longer than a regular mile)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. dont you wanna ask a more OBVIOUS question ?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. you won't be saying that when Joe Cole runs riot.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Never thought id see "Joe Cole" and "run riot" in the same sentence! :-)

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. moron

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  3. Ummmm,

    Is Wisdom nailed on then? I think I like him a lot at 4.3 if he is….

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Until JE is back yes

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Only for a few weeks, and not great couple of fixtures coming up

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  4. Who wins this then???
    49(-4) Each
    Both Baines Walcott(c)

    Me Giroud + Sagna

    Him Wilshere and Vermaelen

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Him unless Giroud starts.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Hmm, im worried by Giroud. :-(

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. I have him too.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Tough call. I'd fancy you if Giroud starts.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
        • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. why would he? was poor last game to be honest. i can see walcot moves to the lone striker position again.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Walcott as a lone striker. and Podolski in for Giroud is what i'd think.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  5. 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)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. I'll be honest, I've been avoiding commenting on your posts because I HATE looking at your grav. It seriously hurts my eyes. And yes. YES. I like your move.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  6. 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.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. You missed out the cup game, possibly the most important for Rafa.

      Swansea- start
      Reading - benched
      Newcastle - start
      Wigan - benched

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. nope..
        seansea - start
        bertford - bench
        reading - start

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  7. 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.)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. I don't think Michu is worth his price tag if you're paying the full whack.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. well I like AJ and Gerrard in all honesty. It would depend on what price you bought Michu at for me

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Sold him last week. Would have to buy him at full price :( His fixtures look great though, it'd be a shame not have him....But I honestly don't want to stick with the Power 5. So boring, so non-differential, so blah.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Not that great. Also away 4 times in his next 6 games and a home game vs Liverpool

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. Ugh. :(. We shall see if Michu is fixture proof still then! Cheers, butts.

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. 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?

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. Such as Silva or Fellaini? Which do you suggest my good sir?

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. 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 ...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  8. Just playing about with my WC, and thinking my team value isn't great. Maybe I should keep Suarez and lose RVP??

    * Runs and hides

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. You can run but you can't hide!

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. get out, just get out ;)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. KoL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Hahah, its a huge risk losing VP with his high ownership.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. RVP is on target to better last season's points haul, I wouldn't even think about it...

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. BUT say you could have Aguero AND Mata rather than RVP and Ramires doesnt it make more sense?

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. wow, you're tv must be really low, I have RvP, Aguero and Mata

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. Just an example of value

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. Surely you can have both RVP and Mata in your WC team? I'd drop Suarez to Sturridge rathing than losing RVP if that saved $3.1m helps you get there?

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
    5. got to keep RVP.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    6. 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

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Suarez is more "explosive" imo. RVP is more consistent

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. I own both, but Suarez got 1/5 Liverpool goals this week, RVP got 1/1 Man U goals...

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. means ManU is crap team.. why take some one from such manure

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
            1. ye crap. that would explain why they're not top

              o wait

              • 1 year, 7 months ago
        2. consistency > explosivity IMO. RvP can be explosive, when United actually get ruthless.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
  9. 2 frees & clueless what to do..

    Bunn / Federici
    Sagna / Davies / Azpilicueta / Shaw / Demel
    Bale / Fellaini / Mata / Michu / Walcott
    Berbatov / Van Persie / Lambert

    2 FT, £0.0m in the bank
    Thoughts appreciated.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Bit of a bench nightmare. Get Sturridge for Berba or Lambert and downgrade the other to Pog

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Makes no sense this week when Berba has WHAM

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  10. Last qualifying spot for the Elite 64 @ 4,583 now. :shock:

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Whats the Elite 64, I'm currently ranked 2,800

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Then don't worry about it. I'm worse than that and hanging in ;)

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. Head to Head Knockout for top 62 ranked players + last years winner & me.

      Your site is blocked in my work. Can you register me for the FPL Open?

      http://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/77076/history/

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. You have to register yourself. You have until GW29 anyway.

          Ah no worries mate. I'll do when at home.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. what is the qualification for the FPL open?

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. Top 254 after GW29.

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
  11. KoL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Bale or Mata? Bale or Mata? Bale or Mata?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. For me it would be Mata but ideally I'd want both.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. Replace or with and.
      Replace ? with .

      • 1 year, 8 months ago

        On Wildcard and want to chose one to go in my front 8 -

        Punch Michu Fellaini Bale/Mata Taarabt
        Berba VP Aguero

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Aah, i just can not.

          1. KoL

            can not?

        Did you enjoy your weekend up in my neck of the woods?

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Very much so! Very productive and enjoyable! Sarti's ftw! ;-)

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          1. KoL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Good to hear.

            Great choice. Very nice Italian.

            • 1 year, 8 months ago
      2. Doooos good morning! Would you be so kind as to give some viable input to my inquery up top? Would appreciate. Thank you sir.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
          • 1 year, 8 months ago
          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      3. There you arm. Once you check em formbooks, Kun vs. Jelly be my dilemma.

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Kun later. HAS. TO. BE. :D

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
        2. Aguero, by a long way, currently. Unfortunately.

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. Mata but I'm getting Bale back in for the Norwich game so will have both :-)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  12. Speak to me people's . I've got serious stricker issues...

    Begovic(Federici )

    Zab Gibbs Demel (Bassong Morrison )

    Silva Mata Fellani Walcott Bale

    Ba Berb (Pobrebynyac)

    3.6 in the bank no FT

    Was thinking next week Ba to Rooney And Berb to sturrige???

    Already resigned to not having RVP and going for one heavy hitter in Rooney to try to keep pace with RVP?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. *striker

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  13. A scouser friend of mine tells me LFC are very close to signing Coutinho.

    Thoughts if it happens?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Cat amongst pigeons

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. watched him play some europe league games, he looked full of energy :)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. They'll have quite a player. Left Vasco too soon, not fully developed...if anyone can bring out the beastly player in him it's Rodgers. Would be a hit.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. Seen him play a good few times. Can be very good but blows hot and cold. I can't see him bothering Suarez or Sturrige too much, more like Downing and Sterling seeing more rotation

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. He is different class to Downing technically so agree. Could become a very potent front 3/4 at Pool

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    5. Very Mata like in style......good tekkers

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  14. Hey guys, mustered up this.

    Bego, Bunn
    Nastasic, Demel, Davies, Harte, Onuoha
    Bale. Mata, Walcott, Fellaini. Guthrie
    RVP, Aguero, Fletcher

    0.2m left

    Do you guys think I should stick with this or downgrade Aguero and bolster defence?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  15. Will Dempsey be playing in the 'hole' until ade is back? Or siggy and Dempsey will alternate?

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Dempsey's pretty safe

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  16. How many people are still in the cup after this round? :D

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. me!

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. i hope we meet

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    2. About 30,000 I think

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
        • 1 year, 8 months ago
        1. Sorry that's what I thought you meant

          • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. That's it?! Shite. Feel good about myself now...although opponent has a high chance of beating me :( back to not feeling good...

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
    3. I have a good chance yes.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    4. Yep! :)

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    5. 50/50 this week

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
    6. Here.

      And hopefully still in there after this week.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  17. A) Lukaku to rise by 0.1.
    or
    B) Fletcher to rise by 0.2.

    Cheers :)

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Neither.

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
      1. Hmm... looks like I need to make money another way...

        • 1 year, 8 months ago
  18. There really is a NEW POST.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. did you write it?

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  19. WC draft 1.0

    Mignolet Bunn
    Zabaleta Azpillicueta Davies Harte Wilson
    Bale Mata Walcott Fellaini Silva
    RVP Benteke LeFondre

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. 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

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  20. 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.

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
    1. Probably not me who you value but that is a great team

      • 1 year, 8 months ago
  21. '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!

    • 1 year, 8 months ago
  22. What do you think of my team who should i put in and take out i have my wildcard avaliable
    VORM - MIGNOLET
    A.COLE - DAVIES - O'BRIEN - ZABALETA - CAMERON
    FELLIANI - MATA - BALE - WALCOTT - MICHU
    BA - FLETCHER - DZEKO
