While Gameweek 35 looks, on paper, to be an ordinary ten-match affair, with another set of double fixtures looming, Fantasy managers will already be using transfers to prep their squads in advance.
They’ll be much debate on how much to commit one week early and whether strong single Gameweek assets should be neglected in favour of those treated to two matches in Gameweek 36.
Our Matchday Surgery chatroom is now open for those looking for some real-time reaction to their musings and dilemmas.
There is, of course, plenty to take in about the site. Details on our Scout Pick selections this week can be found here, while Paul outlined three explosive differentials who could not only fill the void left by Luis Suarez, but potentially help make up ground on mini-league rivals. The team news has been collected and collated, together with our thoughts on the likely weekend lineups. Finally, there’s the ScoutCast, where Granville and I review the week gone by and give our views on the where the profits will lie for the Gameweek ahead.
That should keep you occupied if you’re furiously catching up this morning. The chatroom will morph into the Dugout Discussion in time for the early kick-off at the Etihad. Sadly, due to family commitments this morning, the usual Pre-match Preamble has had to drop from my schedule today. This will return next week when normal service is resumed.
