      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.

      People will justify it by saying he is central to city and has more doubles coming and they're probably right...

      Cos since 1st I have completely lost the plot.

      Really, as he has a dgw and seems a waste to sell for a hit (or goal) for another dgw players.

      That's it. The defence rests.

      Not an owner, but a lot of them seem to have thrown him out for Yaya/Silva/Gerrard.

      From what I've seen on United's games he ineffectual on the wing. Good for assists but is not getting in goal scoring positions.

      I'd suggest selling him.

      I would sell him, even if for a hit. 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).

      Mirallas has been trolling me all year and don't expect any different this gw - have to keep given the double.......though he'll probably only start one.

      ill probably have both for the DGW. Midfielders are unreliable this year bar Hazard/Yaya

        Miralles awful for BAPS, too. I can recall rejoicing a few weeks ago when he scored early in game. He was nowhere near BAP count by the end of play. Gives ball away too much 🙁

      it is justified because even in a non DGW it is often justifed and now you have a dgw so you have less chance of losing out and if it is a city or sunderland player etc you get lots of DGWs out of them so yes it is justified but you have t obe intelligent and not do say Hazard out for Mata or some other sucj idiotic move

      everytime you sell a player, this is how that works:

      ((Current price - Purchase price) / 2) + Purchase price = Selling price

      example i own Coleman since GW1 until now.
      Purchase price 5.0
      Current price 6.8
      I have selling price 5.9

      ((6.8-5.0)/2) + 5.0
      ((1.8)/2) + 5.0
      (0.9) + 5.0 = 5.9
