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. Mirallas is definitely worth having

    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.

  2. I know it's off topic but could someone point me in the right direction as to getting my Avatar.
    Wasn't hee last ear and i have for gotten how.

    Ta in advance

    1. looks like i have forgotten how to type as well !

      1. thanks a lot :-)

    3. FAQ off!

    4. make sure you set up your gravatar with the same email address you use here and rate your image G

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

    1. Lucky dip I think. I'll go for Toure and Collins for what it's worth

    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?

  4. GW4 Wildcard anyone?

    1. Probably.

    2. Oh yeah

    3. last season you wildcarded later in the season wasn't?changing tactic?

    4. GW 38 again for me ;)

      1. sprint finish

  5. What's the chance of Snodgrass playing this weekend?

    1. I think it's good but I thought hat also last week

    2. i think he will play

    3. BR

      In training but no confirmation that he will start

    4. Cheers

  6. best striker for 7,5 an best defender at 5.0 ?? currently have lambert an toure

    1. both good, lambo/dzeko, kolo seems the best 5.0

    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.

  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. Second one

    2. Jez

      A but morrison is not nailed on

  8. Bony nailed on from now on yes?

    1. Jez

      yep

  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. clichy-nasty/javi(maybe this week)-lescott-zaba

  11. ccc

    Whose position is under threat if Chelsea sign Willian?

    1. Juan Mata apparently

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

    3. AVB.

  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.

  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. C is only sensible option. Based on last week i would have no problem with 442. My defense averaged 12ppg.

  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. 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.

    2. I always transfer HBA in Fifa to whatever team im using....so that should help the decision as well.

  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

  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. Oh, I remember, Snod can't drop because of flag removed...

  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. 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. 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.

  18. Zaba Nevas Right flank is an assist goldmine.

  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?

“A hit a week every week and finish in the top 50k is just fine and dandy for me. I play the game for the fun and how it improves watching Stoke vs Cardiff on a Monday night in November.”
