      4-4-2 + Rio + Welbeck ...Why did it take Moyes this long to get around to this setup

              Yeah, going to put them in a treble to advance to the next round (at the very least, win by 2 goals)

                      I've come to my senses in the last 10 seconds, not picking them to advance, but took them to score 2 goals

                  Would you lose Olsson (nor) or Bruce for Flanagan???

                      Bruce

                      He isn't first choice.

                              Keep Olssy baby for this GW at least. I have him and am hoping for a 0-0 for he and Mannone!! 😀

                          Do people think it's worth taking a 16 point hit if it means you bring in 2 City and 2 Everton players?

                              depends whom they are - might work, might not

                                Depends on the individual transfers.

                                I think bringing in say Coleman for a single gw player is worth a hit, but not bringing in say Silva in for Gerrard.

                                  Transfers in detail please?

                                  May just be worth it. Might not give immediate returns but with the extra DGW's they'll probably come through.

                                    Was thinking of:

                                    Davies - Hart
                                    Azpil - Coleman
                                    Evans - Baines
                                    Mata - Silva

                                        I wouldn't do Mata to Silva, I'd do the rest.

                                      I'm now in the enviable position of having triple Olympiakos midfield in play tonight

                                      Fuster/Perez/Ndinga ftw 😀

Aguero or not, City will win both games comfortably and having watched Mata in several games recently, I can't see much in the way of returns for him. One of United's many problems is they have 2 players whose best position is in the hole (Kagawa and Mata) and another who is currently playing there and it isn't his best position (Rooney).

I can see he's worth 7.9 in the transfers but only 7.0 in my team. Why is he worth nearly a whole mil less in my team??

But when I try to sell Lallana, I only receive the 7.0 I paid for him, not the .4 extra I'd get because he's now worth 7.9, Is this a glitch?
