Where did you finish last season with that strategy?
I was doing well untill I decided to improve my midfielfers and switched the top defenders to top priced midfielders and then I tryed to step back on the defencive strategy... so the season was lost. This year I am not going to ruin my tactic.
Did you not take lots of point hits in the process from what I remember? Which may explain why your team dropped down the rankings...?
Your starting 11 decent enough though if this is going to be your strategy (although your bench would worry me). Long term I'd double up the Chelsea defence over any other team and get Baines in, but both could come later, especially with Everton's unfavourable opening fixtures and the slight uncertainty over the other Chelsea defenders. No Palace defenders either, perhaps look at Speroni?
Agree with Mav though, I don't feel it will work either. Setting up with 2 in midfield means you may miss out on any of Ramsey, Sanchez, Walcott, Fabrigas, Mata, Silva
, Yaya Toure, Nasri, Sterling, Eriksen etc who could all hit form at some stage and score big points. Catching these players at the right time will be key IMO.
It's refreshing to see something different though so I hope it works
