The Saturday Surgery

Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

Gameweek 32 is a strange, two-headed beast. In a way, Saturday provides the starter – serving up just four matches to get things underway, before Sunday’s main course presents a rich spread of heavy-hitters, culminating in Monday night’s delicious desert in the form of the Manchester derby.

While that particular tussle will take on less significance given United’s seemingly unassailable lead, us Fantasy managers will have plenty at stake as the season enters the home straight and mini-leagues officially reach “squeaky-bum time”.

Decisions made now are more crucial than ever, which is why we’re here to provide a real-time Saturday Surgery chatroom to ease your passage through to this morning’s deadline.

The Dugout Discussion pre-empts the early kick-off at the Madjeski, with a Preamble I prepared earlier on its way in just over half-an-hour.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
