            What to do with Alonso on WC? I know I am going to be kicking myself come 2pm

              2 months, 1 day ago

              Mate, I’m in the same boat - I think stick if you’ve got a deep bench just in case he explodes for 21 points

              1. XX SMICER XX
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Townsend Brownhill & Livramento!

                1. DannyDrinkVodka
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 1 day ago

                  Good enough for Alonso!

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Are people captaining CR7 because he will be captained a lot or because they believe Everton will concede?

            1. XX SMICER XX
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              Because it’s Ronaldo

                It was Ronaldo also last GW and he blanked. Everton are even a stronger side than Aston Villa

                1. Aston VII iia hahaha

              Alonso on WC, switch to Azpi? Have Rudiger:

              A) Yes
              B) No

              1. XX SMICER XX
                • 3 Years

                I have the same dilemma

                • 7 Years

              a) Dias + Jimmy
              b) TAA + Toney

                  I think Leeds at home have higher chances to score than Arsenal away. Sort of 51:49!

                Rumours that Ronaldo will not play the full 90.

                Could be a benching. Could be an early sub.
