One of the highlighted players in Moneyball was Chad Bradford, who looks nothing like what scouts and fans imagine when they think about a pitcher. When he throws, his hand drops down so low on release that his knuckles literally scrape the floor. That unorthodox appearance meant that teams ignored him despite his impressive underlying numbers, until Billy Beane and his statistical staff looked beyond Bradford’s funky delivery, focused on the process and reaped the rewards. Today, the short, skinny thirty-something Leon Osman is Chad Bradford.
1) Gaston Ramirez + Berbatov
2) Oscar + Jay Rodriguez
I really want all of them. No fair.Open Controls
Whoops. SorryOpen Controls
I'd say option 1 but only because Ramirez could be the real deal and Berba is solid.Open Controls

Baines, Cuellar, McAuley
Sterling, Cazorla, Michu, Pienaar
Tevez, Lambert, RVP (c)
SUBS: Ruddy - Mata - Clark - Demel
Save the FT? 0.9 in the bank. Looking rather weak without Mata. Could also do something with Lambert and Demel. Original thoughts were to do McA -> Nelsen, but with Demel's injury I will have to scrap that.
What'cha think?Open Controls
Most will disagree, but I'm sticking with Lambert. Decent enough fixtures coming up to warrant showing some faith.Open Controls
- Doc Sportello
Yeah, been thinking about that, myself.Open Controls
Totally agree with the fixtures, unfortunately, seems a worry just how many of those he'll startOpen Controls
He'll start every home game and most away games I reckon....to stay up, they need their main man firing....I don't think Adkins will continue with his brainwave of leaving Lambert outOpen Controls
Is the boss about?Open Controls
Top 10k? Fair play, I'd be happy with a top 1m.Open Controls

Nelson and macanuff not an option!?Open Controls
I just got in Morrison for Gervinho (kind of regretting it now I see Yacob is 50-50).
I'm depending on Clark playing as my third defender (away to Sunderland). Should I:
a) Wilson -> Rafael, for a hit (really want him at some point)
b) Demel/Wilson -> Super-cheapo, like Nelsen, for a hit
c) stick with it
Ivan - Baines - Clark (?)
Bale - Caz - Sterling - Morrison
