Captain Sensible – Gameweek 23

We roll out the next instalment of our weekly article for Members tonight, offering an in-depth statistical analysis of the main captaincy contenders for the set of fixtures ahead. With Luis Suarez topping the Captain Poll, we assess the Everton defence ahead of the Anfield Merseyside derby. We also dig deep into the data of Eden Hazard and Samuel Eto’o ahead of the home game against West Ham, whilst Sergio Aguero and Wayne Rooney’s prospects are also discussed, with the latter now back in full training ahead of Cardiff’s visit on Tuesday evening:

      I've brought Mata in on my WC this week. I think he is worth a punt. He could run riot against Cardiff. Also, in the long term he promises to be an important component of United's midfield and could be instrumental in a lot of their attacking play. I say go for it.

        I would put the extra 1,5-2M in a forward for a 3-4-3. I got rid of Coleman on my WC. Poor fixtures coming up.

    Hey guys. Any inputs on my WC team?

    Mannone (Marshall)
    Evans - Koscielny - Gabbidon (Baker - Bruce)
    Mata - Hazard - Ramsey - Yaya (Noone)
    Bony - Aguero - Suarez

    Thinking that I might need a che def instead of Evans. But who?
    Ramsey? Might not start, but thinking investment for the long run. Or should I go for Lallana/eriksen?
    Could do Yaya-> to Silva to free up some funds.

      I think you should get rid of Distin. Not so good fixtures coming up. I think they will concede in 4 out of 5 in coming weeks. CS against CPL.

      I would pick C. But I wouldn't leave 2.1 in my bank on a WC. Use that to solidify D on someone like Terry or Ivanovic. I like Chelsea's upcoming fixtures and you should have someone from their team on Defense.

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on my team for GW23. Wildcard already played and zero in the bank but have recently picked up a few injuries. I'd like to hang onto Coleman, but do you think having that money tied up in a doubtful Silva? Annoyingly I'm currently just off getting Mata. Possibly downgrade Silva for Jesus Navas?

    Alternatively just suck it up this week and then I've got 2 free transfers for GW24 and can have a look at balancing things out if needs be.

    Tremel (Marshall)
    Koscielny, Gabbidon, Mertesacker (Coleman, Chester)
    Hazard, Assaidi, Silva, Alex Pozuelo (Lallana)
    Rodriquez, Aquero, Suarez

    Cheers all!

      Silva is playing today according to @physioroom.

      I would wait it out. There's a lot of January team moves that could still happen.

      I have Remy and Cabaye on my team and want to pick up Rooney if he starts today. But if Arsenal makes a bid for Remy, I would keep him. Things like that make you chill out and wait a few more days until it's Feb. 1st.

      I wouldnt touch it.

      Coleman is the question mark you could move and add a Chelsea D man.
      Everton has tougher fixtures coming up and Coleman will be out a couple weeks anyway.

          I'm in the same boat, I've had Coleman since week 1.
          But I would have to take a hit to move Coleman and I also have Cabaye.
          Ugh, the problems with using your Wildcard too early in Jan.!

      Gabbidon is OK for this week but future fixtures look tough for CRY,
      Coleman is not assured of start today and future fixtures of Everton is not eye catching too,
      For SOU, Lovren is their main man and he is out injured. Their back four is not so solid.

      Mid looks solid

      Just try Agureo or Suarez(if you could afford) as they show consistency..
      Lukaku scored just one goal since GW 14.. check on that too..
