The Dugout Discussion – Saturday

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Mark

Saturday rolls on with a set of five afternoon kick-offs, rounded off unceremoniously by a tea-time clash as Hull City host Stoke. Interesting.

Before that, all eyes will be on Goodison and Stamford Bridge where two prime captain candidates – namely Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard, will carry the hopes of thousands of Fantasy managers as they face up to the Fulham and Crystal Palace defences respectively.

The afternoon’s events are completed by West Brom’s trip to Cardiff, while Newcastle host Southampton and an injury-ravaged West Ham entertain Sunderland.

As always, you can look to our twitter feed for details of the major movements on the teamsheets, while our Dugout Discussion chatroom will take you through today’s matches, right up until the final whistle at the KC Stadium.

  1. United fans - do you know if any defender will be nailed on until the January wildcard?

    Looking at Evans and Jones at the moment.

    1. Evra

  2. aguero dropping really fast

  3. If Aguero is out for some weeks am looking at a -8:
    1) Aguero -> Rooney
    2) Nasri -> Silva
    3) Mirallas -> Walcott...which will give me

    Coleman, Demel, Dawson
    Silva, Hazard, Walcott, Ramsey
    Rooney, Suarez, Lukaku

    Harper, Jwp, Chester, Rosenior

    Sensible OR Mad???

    1. Very nice and am considering the same to get both Wally and Silva

    2. Nasri to Silva looks a waste of a transfer for me, and almost guarantees Silva picking up a YC in the next game.

  4. Is this sensible?

    Ozil and Oscar out for Walcott and Hazard.

    4 point hit

  5. Aguero: 50% Calf injury - 50% chance of playing.
    Manue: "Aguero has a problem with his calf – we’ll see tomorrow how many weeks he will be out,” he revealed.

    so drop Aguero for:

  6. Who is the best choice to rotate with Ward from GW 17 onwards?

    1. Fulham defender goes okay with Palace rotation.

    Top 100k for the first time ever (3 years). Could all change tomorrow with only Suarez and Migs to play. Hoping for a Suarez blank after my Aguero failed to catch fire.

  8. With Rooney midfield position, suddenly this move is looking more desireable

    Jedinak -> Walcott
    Aguero -> Negredo.

    Next week Ivanovic -> Burner

    The week after Ravel -> Silva just in time for Palace
