    0.5m wiggleroom in bank for transfers of the 6.5s up to 7s
    There are some early (gwk 2,3,4) fixtures to allow for the bench to sub in and replace the 6.5s when they play the Top4 at the beginning.

            Mayb change awb to shaw if u looking for differential? I feel shaw has more attacking potential, but is more injury prone. May worth a gamble.

                Not forgetting zichenko or even kolasinac too!

                  AWB was smashing it in the pre-season games. Not so sure about Shaw. I was also thinking Zinchenko instead of AWB and double up Man city players in the defence but stayed away due to rotation policy.

                      AWB is a good choice too. I may swap my Zichenko to AWB. I was considering Zich, Awb, ritchie, kolasinac as my 5.5. Mainly stick with zich for now because mancity higher chance of attacking return and also cs.

                          WH is a team who might just sneak one in against city:)

                              U r right, Haller is intimidating, and especially if Laporte is injured... back to drawing board for me! Lol.

                          Potential 7 players in forward positions, with potential point earners in vardy, sterling, salah, kane

                              With VAR, am not sure how its gonna work for folks like Kane who dives a lot. Hopefully he gets a good August this season. Is Zinchenko nailed on?
                              How come you have no Bournemouth players?

                              1. nxh84
                                  3 months, 16 days ago

                                  I may change Kane to Auba. I think Vardy is greater than any of Wilson / King given the attacking talents in Leicester, with Vardy as their main focus.

                                  I would like to keep 11pts in one of the strikers for easier rotation in case Aguero | Kane | Aubameyang is on form.

                                  Hence no Bournemouth players.

                                  1. vat1kor
                                      3 months, 16 days ago

                                      Not so sure about that. Fixtures are great and last season - their players were on fire.
                                      Aguero did not play pre-seasons if I am right
                                      Auba - not sure how it will impact with Pepe's purchase.
                                      Kane - I prefer Son over Kane any day based on last few performances

                                  2. nxh84
                                      3 months, 16 days ago

                                      Zich at least shd be starting the August matches because he has more match fitness than Mendy. Hopefully Zich use this chance to impress Pep and nail down the LB spot. Pep seems to dislike Mendy, which could play in Zich’s favor.

                                          I will wait for few matches to may be replace AWB. I may play WC early this season. I may look into GW4 or 5 once things start setting down

                                          Not so confident on Pool's defence especially after pre-season and community shield. I would have one. TAA is not guaranteed to start every match - look at community shield for example, he got substituted. With VAR, players like VVD may get fair assists or get fouled that will get caught

                                            Thanks, i'm thinking about downgrading TAA and get Awb or coleman and use the funds to upgrade Hayden or king

                                        Help please. Which team?

                                        A)

                                        Henderson, VVD, TAA, Coleman, Laporte, Salah, KDB, Ceballos, Perez, Wilson, Kane

                                        B)

                                        Henderson, VVD, Wan B, TAA, Coleman, Salah, KDB, Moura, Haller, Vardy, Wilson

                                                3 months, 16 days ago

                                                Chose B because potentially more players in forward positions, hence higher chance of getting goal or assist returns.

                                                Laporte could still be injured.

                                                I’m not fully sold on Kane, although i also have him for now, due to Son not avail, Ali may be injured, and Eriksen not really on form.

                                                Sterling, Salah, Fraszer, Ceballos, Guendouzi
                                                Kane, Rashford, Greenwood,

                                                I have a bit of wiggle room by downgrading to a 4.0 defender allowing me to get Vardy or downgrading Ceballos but i'd like to keep him as i liked what i saw of him in the summer (hopefully he plays)
