      will Ozil price rise before the deadline?

        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.

        SOT vs Ars
        TOT vs Cty
        LVP vs Eve

                    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?

                                      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.

                                            Need to monitor Lallana and Eriksen/ JRod and Adebayor.

                                          Leave in Rooney who won't.
