Matchday Surgery

The Sunday Surgery

United in procrastination and debate for the last time this season, Fantasy managers await the events of the final day, mapping out the possibilities and plotting the merits of one last gamble.

Although it seems painful, a week on from now, we’ll doubtless miss the sweaty palms as we hover over confirm button. So, with the deadline looming, let’s revel in the time that remains. Our matchday surgery chatroom is now open to cater for those who require some real-time feedback on their own particular dilemmas.

For those with more time on their hands, our weekly Scout Picks and a healthy slice of Differentials can be absorbed, along with this week’s ScoutCast, offering a unique insight into the thinking of a Fantasy manager contesting at the very top. All the team news and our predicted lineups can be found right here.

Our Dugout Discussion will fire up prior to the four o’clock kick-offs, with a final Pre-match Preamble imminent.

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

      bale 2 blanks and sturridge on fire.

      Want to captain bale but his form seems so-so last 2. Sturridge hat-trick and could have got 6 v fulham. What to do?

            Tottenham need to win desperately. Liverpool don't.

                But with Spurs needing a win they have looked more nervous recently while with the pressure off 'pool they've looked much better.

                I'm going for Aguero instead of bale I think. Go for sturridge Bemba. Your reasoning is sound

                  I've backed myself on the Sturridge captain choice after a late wobble.

                  Go for it.

                  Also if Sturridge scores today he'll be on his most PL goals per season and he's a self obsessed player, personal achievements will mean a lot to him.

                    Sturridge and Coutinho don't need anything more to play for than the sheer joy of developing their partnership

                    a) Sturridge and Nolan

                    or

                    b) Hernandez and Coutinho

                    Cheers 🙂

                            Depends on your risk profile. a) safer but b) has a lot of potential

                                Ah bugger it, I'm going with this:

                                DDG

                                Sturridge(c)/Tevez/RVP

                                Subs: Bunn/Fellaini/Clyne/Sagna

                                Best of luck to you all!

                                      2) cpt bale or sturridge…leaning towards sturridge as spurs might shut up shop if leading

                                        My main rival has Coutinho. Should I transfer him in for Nasri to neutralise my rival or get Michu to have a differential. Four points ahead at the moment.
