    I can't roll the transfer if I want Alli this week. I need to use both my FT to go Son to Alli. » Read

    I've got the issue of having to free up a slot for Kane for GW33. I'll need a hit as it stands unless Davies goes this week.Just didn't see this coming. » Read

    Thoughts on the Kane news and the impact on your plans?For me, it's changed my thinking on a few things. I don't think he'll figure this weekend but the doubt and his likely return for GW33 has meant Son now leaves for Alli. Alli's stock also dented a little as he'll be off pens - not so certain on the GW32 captaincy now.As for Kane - he's surely got to be in our plans. Aguero to Kane rather than Aguero to Ibra - even with the DGW - is now a consideration. » Read

    That's correct. » Read

    Nah, I think you were probably refreshing and got a box that hadn't had the assist added. » Read

    No, Opta awarded straight away.Only doubt originally was whether it touched Janssen or two Swans defenders but that doesn't appear to be the case. Assist reviews are underway, though. » Read

    Just to add to this. Opta stats - used for the BPS - show Navas 9 attempted tackles, 8 successful. He also supplied 3 successful cross and 3 key passes. In short, he was a stats monster in BPS terms.It's an outlier - if those were Bellerin's numbers, we'd be lauding him - because it's Navas, we right them off as farcical. But those stats are Opta - you can't really question them and the BPS is transparent on how those Opta numbers translate to BPS and therefore Bonus Points.Every now and then we'll see this - a player who just delivers on the sweet spot for BPS. That doesn't mean we throw out the whole system.For me, its better we know how Bonus is allocated so we - as more hardcore managers - can try to select to that system. If we go back to man in the stand, we're at the mercy of an individuals' view and sometimes their own favourites.Some folk might remember that Barry Ferguson used to hoover up Bonus Points - it turned out that the man in the stand at Birmingham - w… » Read

    Those wondering why Navas earned a high BPSHe won 8 tackles, 3 more than any other player in Gameweek 30. He also made 3 open play crosses and 3 key passes but the tackles were the big factor. » Read

    Goal at Watford in United defeat - watch it - it's clear that Rashford is the intended target for the cross therefore it's a valid assist regardless of the touch off the defender according to the rules. » Read

  11. Dugout Discussion - Saturday 26 days, 21 hours ago

    The Ibra assist was given because Rashford was the clear intended target as the only player in the box.This is different - I've posted elsewhere that this will be reviewed. Aside from intention, I think it actually may hit two Burnley players with a flick on the near post. » Read

    Likely to lose it, two touches from two different Burnley players I believe. » Read

  13. Dugout Discussion - Saturday 26 days, 21 hours ago

    It will be reviewed and, IMO it will be removed. Two issues - firstly I think I saw two touches from Burnley defenders. Second, IMO Dier is not the intended target of the cross so, even if it diverts to him from the defender, it should not be an assist. However, two touches, if confirmed, would remove it regardless of that argument.As mentioned before, the review process is normally done during the final hour after the whistle on final game so sit tight. » Read

  20. The Pre-Match Preamble - Gameweek 30 27 days, 3 hours ago

    I changed at the death. Just worried on West Ham line-up, their motivation levels, Hull having two big CB's to handle it and their home form which has been solid under Silva.Spurs need to keep pace and I think Son gets an hour.Did a comparison tool analysis too - surprising how well Son's averages square up. Five of his six goals away from home too. » Read
