The Saturday Surgery

Filed under: Matchday Surgery - Posted by: Mark

After a fraught and frenzied double Gameweek schedule, this weekend brings us back down to earth with the simple pleasures of a single set of fixtures. While that reels in our expectations, the pressure is still on to squeeze out every last point from the Gameweek, whilst keeping one eye on the next double header arriving in a fortnight’s time.

While some will be looking to consolidate after enjoying their recent three-figure haul, others will be assessing the damage of double Gameweek gambles gone bad – wondering if their squads can be reassembled to cope with the tests that remain.

We’re here to help. This week’s “Scout Picks” are laid on a platter for you just here, while those seeking emergency measures can perhaps find a game-changer amongst our selection of “Differentials”. With all the team news, together with our predicted lineups collated for you just here, you’ve plenty to absorb if you’re playing catch-up this morning.

Of course, our “Matchday Surgery” chatroom is also now open to welcome those who seek some real-time solutions to their dilemmas.

Our first “Dugout Discussion” of the Gameweek begins around 2.45 ahead of today’s kick-offs. A leisurely “Pre-match Preamble” is on its way shortly.
