The Numbers Game – The Promoted Assets

Filed under: Members - Posted by: Paul

Chelsea and Villa’s assets feature prominently in the top 10 of our ICT Index after Gameweek 1, with the two teams supplying five players between them after opening the season with a pair of fixtures apiece. While many of the usual suspects have made an instant impact, we turn our attentions to the newly-promoted sides and attempt to look for the positives after all three tasted defeat in their opening fixture of the 2013/14 campaign.

  1. Morrison or Sinclair for West Brom?

    Also is Mirallas worth having?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Mirallas is definitely worth having

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Sinclair could be a really good option, especially in Anelka's abscence. Playing on the front left of a 4-3-3 with Long and Vydra could work well for WBA. Morrison likely playing furthest forward in the middle.

      Wait and see for me on WBA, but Sinclair is firmly on my radar.

  3. Pick two from three - Collins, Toure or Turner

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Lucky dip I think. I'll go for Toure and Collins for what it's worth

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Turner & Toure for me.

      I'm basing this on the idea that WHM we shocking away from home last year.

      Although, you're probably looking at the lot of'em netting you 2pts, right?

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  4. GW4 Wildcard anyone?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Probably.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Oh yeah

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    3. last season you wildcarded later in the season wasn't?changing tactic?

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    4. GW 38 again for me ;)

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. sprint finish

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
  5. What's the chance of Snodgrass playing this weekend?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. I think it's good but I thought hat also last week

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. i think he will play

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    3. BR

      In training but no confirmation that he will start

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    4. Cheers

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  6. best striker for 7,5 an best defender at 5.0 ?? currently have lambert an toure

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. both good, lambo/dzeko, kolo seems the best 5.0

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. One of the best songs ever, one of the best foreheads ever. A match made in heaven, and well worth it with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dipFMJckZOM out for 4 weeks odd.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  7. On a WC and stuck. Who do people think will score more over next few weeks?

    Benteke+Silva+Morrison

    Or

    Dzeko+Coutinho+Nolan +0.5

    Thanks

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Jez

      A but morrison is not nailed on

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  8. Bony nailed on from now on yes?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Jez

      yep

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  9. New Post
  10. Presuming Nastasic returns for the trip to Cardiff, what is the likely City backline for the next few weeks until Kompany returns?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. clichy-nasty/javi(maybe this week)-lescott-zaba

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  11. ccc

    Whose position is under threat if Chelsea sign Willian?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Juan Mata apparently

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Plan B was Eto, plan C is Willian in Mata out as a proposal to United for Rooney :) Plan D was Lewandovski

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    3. AVB.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  12. Does the team look okay? This is the best I can do with Anelka out and having already taken a -4 hit.:

    Boruc,
    Toure, Coleman, Chester, Murner,
    Hazard, Walcott, Coutinho, Mirallas,
    RVP, Sturridge.

    Davis, Morrison, Brayford, Anelka. (0.4 bank)

    Thoughts appreciated.

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
  13. -4 already and now the Anelka news.

    Play:

    A - Kim home to City
    B - Burner home to City
    C - Chester home to Norwich

    B and C mean playing a 4:4:2

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. C is only sensible option. Based on last week i would have no problem with 442. My defense averaged 12ppg.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  14. People seem to be convinced NEW assets are no-goes due to the result against Man City. HBA in particular.

    Could you say that any other side outside the top 8 would've done better in similar circumstances..?

    A reminder of what you get for 7m with HBA:

    Set pieces
    Pens
    Part of a front 3.
    Bullet of a left foot.
    Greedy.
    3 home games out of 4 against winnable teams.

    He's in my side for these reasons. If you agree don't let others put you off.

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. I like HBA and think he could be a great differential over the next 3-4 GWs. Definitely the most lively for NEW.

      That said, I had him on and off a couple years ago and he is all or nothing. Weeks without a sniff will be a nightmare and waste of 7M.

      Worth a punt though I say if you already have Mirallas.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. I always transfer HBA in Fifa to whatever team im using....so that should help the decision as well.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  15. had a shocking 1st, used wc, thoughts on team appreciated !

    boruc
    zabaleta/toure/coleman
    walcott/silva/coutinho/hazard
    soldado/benteke/lambert

    cant decide between lambert soldado or silva for captain

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
  16. Which site is more accurate for price changes, fiso or TotalFPL?

    Fiso has me losing value on Snoddy and Ravel, on TotalFPL they're nowhere close to dropping?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Oh, I remember, Snod can't drop because of flag removed...

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  17. a). Giaccherini => Nolan
    b). Giaccherini => Snodgrass
    c). Giaccherini => anyone else? De Bruyne? (have Hazard already)
    d). Altidore => van Wolfswinkel
    e). Altidore => Aspas
    f). Altidore => anyone else? (if suggesting Agbonlahor, already have Tekkers)

    Or sit on them for another week?

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Aspas and RVW have much more pontial over hte next few GWs, Altidore could be a great differential.

      I would likely hang-on, but don't think double Sunderland cover is a good idea regardless.

      Don't you have DGW players to ship?

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. I do, but that's why I was thinking of sitting on them for a week, to do a triple switch (get out Tonev and maybe Ivanovic) next GW.

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
  18. Zaba Nevas Right flank is an assist goldmine.

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
  19. Really struggling with (c) options this week....have sturridge, soldad(c), rvp, mirallas as top options...almost crazed to the point of considering snodgrass...

    any advice?
