The Technical Area – Spurs’ Wembley Woes

Another Gameweek, another Harry Kane blank.

As covered in Sunday’s Knee Jerk, it wasn’t supposed to be like this, so in this week’s Technical Area we’ll be digging through the rubble of another disappointing weekend at Wembley and dissecting exactly what seems to be ailing Spurs – and in particular their talismanic forward.

    Which 4 would you rather have on a WC?

    A. Forster Bertrand Naughton Richarlison
    B. Pickford Trippier Cedric Albrighton

      Forster, Trippier, Bertrand, Brady... if can't afford Bertrand then Cedric?

      It's a bit off piste. Maybe.
      Mids need freshening up.

      You could just use your FT to sort out Ramsey

    On wc.
    Im really being drawn towards swapping Foster to Lossl. Got Fugazi already.

    I think there's a lot of save points to be had in Lossl. And the clean sheets so far are cool too.

    1. Little Red Lacazette
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Personally wouldn't go with Lossl, until we see more.

    @Torres Magic are you happy with your team?

    We have the exact same players except I have Ake & Stephens over Daniels & Cedric.

    Isnt R Sanches going to kill off TCarrol as an option.

    1. ChelseaGuy
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Don't think so

    2. Red Dagger ✪

      Going to Liverpool now it seems.

    3. potatoace
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      His other position is rm. Could even kill Naughton

    4. Gregg Wallace
      • 3 Years

      Renato Sanches to Swansea? Blimey. He's a real star.

    I love how Johnny Evans has become in demand and an expensive asset purely because his peers at the top clubs keep making mistakes and there is a dearth of decent centre backs in the league.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Maguire moved for 15-17m was it? I'd have him over a 30m Evans.

  10. Rik Waller

    Simple yes or no...
    Is Firmino essential?

    1. Debauchy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      No , but...

    2. Skull And Gnomes 9

      Won't be playing Arsenal every week.

    3. Karan14 - (RoboKlopp)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No.

    4. Silva’s Left Nut

      That not a simple question. 'essential' means different things to different people

    1. ChelseaGuy

      Wow..neat
      You bookmarked that?

        Nope. Disable posted the thread last page but I didn't comment in time for him to see it.

    If Lemar, VD and R. Sanches all end up at Liverpool, how does that change things...?

    1. ChelseaGuy
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Firmino essential

      1. Red Dagger ✪
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Yeah I would say so.

        1. ChelseaGuy
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          😉

      2. KGFC
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I think Mane too will be.

    2. Gregg Wallace
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 3 months ago

      Mean's it's definitively, 100%, no questions asked "their year"

  12. KGFC

    Most of everyone here seems to be planning on captaining Kane for GW5. But looking at 2 Swansea away performances and 2 Spurs home performances, how many goals do you think Kane will get? I don't think he'll get more than one goal (For the record, I'm a Kane admirer and this is my assessment looking at Spurs and Kane performances in this early season)

    IMO, it might not be worth holding onto Kane when its expected that he'll drop at least 0.2 till next deadline in the hope that he will return BIG in GW5. What plans do Kane holders have if he fails? Perhaps a cheaper alternative in Alli could cover for some points and Spurs fixtures for GW5 and beyond rather than an expensive and misfiring Kane?

    Of course, this is all based on the assumption that Kane won't explode against Everton and his price most likely will be same or go 0.1 up/down max before GW5.

    Thoughts?

    1. ChelseaGuy
      • 2 Years

      Boooooooo

    2. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I've already sold for morata banked the cash and will get back at hopefully cheaper price

    3. Red Dagger ✪
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I bought Kane in for the season. He will return at some point and if he continues to drop ownership then that's all the better for those that keep him.

      1. KGFC
        • 2 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        I too had him. But my biggest concern is that having him in the team means serious compromises elsewhere. And to have a 12.5m player giving an average of 2 PPM or max say 4 since he'll most likely be the captain, its not probably worth it.

        1. Ramboros
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 3 months ago

          Last season I regret selling him after a United/Hull/Burnley blank. This year I'd rather regret keeping him. It's not like there's a wealth of premium options with good fixtures and form.

        2. Red Dagger ✪
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 3 months ago

          I agree with that 100%. For me it was a choice between Kane and Lukaku at the start of the season but not both because of the reasons you correctly stated. I clearly made the wrong choice. If I didn't have Kane now I would wait until he starts scoring before bringing in. If you are an owner I'd hold.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 year, 3 months ago

        So did I, but how many games would you hold on for - 4, 5, 6?

      3. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 3 months ago

        Agreed. Don't see the point of selling now and then getting him back immediately after he scores. Might as well hold onto him and not miss any of his points if I know I'm going to want him back when he inevitably gets a goal or two.

    I heard a few days ago that Liverpool were supposed to be signing a CB on Tuesday (today).

    Has been a lot flying round on social media saying that VVD is with Liverpool representatives now, as well as images of a car that supposedly picked him up from an airport in Liverpool after arriving from Bournemouth.

    Will hopefully be announced soon.
