        Not understanding WBA appointment, a 7th place finish amongst several average seasons in lower divisions doesn't sound much better than Clarke record.

        GW23 is the horrible one coming up.

                Lukaku this week, Negredo the following. Whichever I have when Aguero is back will make way.

                      Yaya > Ozil (-4) if The Ivorian is out.

                      Sound good?

                      Marshall
                      Goalman Kos Clyne Burner

                            It's the (-4) that puts me off. A fit Yaya could potentially outscore Ozil in next 2

                            Or WC? Many will argue against it but the team you would get now probably won't look much different to the team you will aim for GW23.

                              But it would. Aguero or RVP possibly.

                                      A defensive table for once. Arranged by shots conceded in the box, the fewer the shots conceded the better the defensive chance of a CS...simple...Set it for GW range 1-10 and you'll see it is reflective of the early season template....It works....http://members.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/my-stats-tables/view/4750/

                                      Let's assume Kun's flag doesn't get removed until say Friday before the Cardiff game

                                      is it not therefore likely that his price will be protected until the start of GW23. If so, it would be highly tempting (but highly risky) to sell him to RvP for GW23 and buy him straight back on wc before he was able to rise?

                                                0.5 in the bank.
                                                Have already used FT for Walcott > Ozil.
                                                Was hoping to WC as late as possible, however am getting nervous with all this WCing especially as I have three flags in team and two defenders probably not playing!
                                                Should I:
                                                A - hold for a week at least, or B - shake things up with my WC?
                                                Grateful for any suggestions!

                                                      j.rod - suarez - augero

                                                      also thinking of 442 with jrod removed and kolorov in defence.. which would be better?
