    Yeah, see above, I'm wary that I may end up wandering down the "Anichebe avenue" again. » Read

  2. Scout Report - Laurent Depoitre 3 days, 21 hours ago

    I think that's likely. The assist record is strong enough to justify that and we've seen it before with the most fancied promoted defenders - Keane being the most recent example. » Read

    Yeah, week of, and I don't believe it will be Monday or the Friday for obvious reasons. » Read

  4. Scout Report - Laurent Depoitre 3 days, 21 hours ago

    I'm thinking the same but I'm sure that once I start working with prices and building the midfield, that idea will soon be dismissed. I'm still leaning towards 3-5-2 as my starting formation. » Read

    Hehe...a classic. We were so hopeful! » Read

    I'm not sure if Deeney will fit the third striker profile - I see his price remaining around the 7.0 mark which might just be too steep. I guess much depends on how we set up in midfield.Deeney could be a strong option, though now that Silva is installed. I can't see him being benched as he was under Mazzarri over the run-in. » Read

    Morning folks. So Depoitre adds to the cast of promoted strikers and today’s hot topic is based on these assets.Do we really see any of them fitting the bill as a third striker?Depoitre may actually be the best option on offer currently. Gayle would seem the most likely but is injury prone and it’s not clear if Rafa trusts him. I’d still expect the Magpies to bring in a new option.Murray is the current Brighton option but will likely struggle again at the top level.If we can’t look to these guys, who do we feel is likely to be our best option in the sub 6.0 bracket? » Read

    Well they were enabled then get switched off again. I think because I changed category on the article. Now I'm away from my Mac I can't fix. » Read

    Sadly there's nothing I can do for hours - I don't have access to the admin tools in my mobile. I will enable when I'm home but that will be early evening. I will apologise to GB. » Read

    We have an issue I'm trying to fix - I've no idea why the comments keep getting disabled and I'm away from laptop and only access on mobile. Please be patient I'm trying to get this fixed. » Read

    The Arsenal option has been tricky in recent seasons. If they do fare well, who is our target? I can't trust Koscielny again after last season's DGW disaster. » Read

    They haven't been strong for a couple of seasons. We have to think that he'll address this and I think Dawson could be moved to CB. However, Leicester are trying to prise Evans away so there could be upheaval. » Read

    Yep, you have to think that without Europa League they should benefit. Pellegrino looks set to be a key man in our season from the off with their fixtures. » Read

    Inspired by Giggs Boson’s article, today’s Hot Topic is based on clean sheet prospects this season.Who do we feel will be the breakout team for shut-outs next term?Do we see Spurs, Chelsea and Man United dominate this?I’m expecting both Liverpool and Man City to improve in this area and I think Everton could also push into the 15/16 clean sheet bracket now with Schneiderlin and Gana having the pre-season to build their understanding.What do we reckon on the promoted sides?Rafa likes his teams to prioritise defence and use the counter so I believe that Newcastle will be my favoured option. Brighton’s home form will be worth monitoring based on their Championship stats. » Read

    Lovely stuff from GB. I'll be looking at those values he offers for the ticker in light of our own default ones.One sidenote - Everton's keepers have 14 clean sheets in FPL terms because, although they lost 1-0 to Liverpool at home, they conceded in stoppage time with Stekelenburg having been subbed after the hour mark. » Read
