        Not understanding WBA appointment, a 7th place finish amongst several average seasons in lower divisions doesn't sound much better than Clarke record.

        GW23 is the horrible one coming up.

        SOT vs Ars
        TOT vs Cty
        LVP vs Eve

                  Lukaku this week, Negredo the following. Whichever I have when Aguero is back will make way.

                          Yaya > Ozil (-4) if The Ivorian is out.

                          Sound good?

                          Will give me:

                          Goalman Kos Clyne Burner

                                  It's the (-4) that puts me off. A fit Yaya could potentially outscore Ozil in next 2

                                    Or WC? Many will argue against it but the team you would get now probably won't look much different to the team you will aim for GW23.

                                        But it would. Aguero or RVP possibly.

                                        Need to monitor Lallana and Eriksen/ JRod and Adebayor.

                                      Leave in Rooney who won't.

                                                  Let's assume Kun's flag doesn't get removed until say Friday before the Cardiff game

                                                  is it not therefore likely that his price will be protected until the start of GW23. If so, it would be highly tempting (but highly risky) to sell him to RvP for GW23 and buy him straight back on wc before he was able to rise?
