    GKs - maybe you don't need Mannone, you could save 0.5 and just play Begovic every week.

    Defence - I'd stay away from Liverpool defenders, they really aren't solid at the back.

    Midfield - I'd rather have Silva than Nasri and I'm not sure on Barkleys game time.

    Forwards - We'll see in preseason if and where Remy plays, he could be value if he's up top with Sturridge.

    This may sound negative, but everything not mentioned is good, so it's really quite good overall.

    Evening all,

    Any and all thoughts on the below squad greatly appreciated and reciprocated!!!

    Mannone (4.5) - still waiting to see who will start for Sunderland this year but he's in for the moment
    Begovic (5.0)

    DFs:
    Verm (5.0) - assuming he goes to UTD ; Lovren (5.5) - assuming he goes to LFC ; Debuchy (5.5) ; Davies (5.0) ; Wisdom (4.0)

    MFs:
    Nasri (8.5) - still considering upgrading to Silva? ; Barkley (7.0) - was Odem (6.5) until five mins ago ; Eriksen (8.0) ; Fab (9.0) ; Albrighton (4.5)

    CFs:
    Rooney (10.5) ; Remy (7.5) - assuming he goes to LFC ; Costa (10.5)

    As someone who had the pleasure of watching Barkley live 20+ times last season I can assure you he is as talented as the media are making him out to be.

    The 'bet he won't even go to the next World Cup' quote is absurd.

    The only reason he won't start every single game for Everton this season is due to his age and the method Martinez employs when protecting young players.

    He's very much central to Everton. He is, at this moment in time, the only true #10 we have at the club. The comments in regards to the boys footballing ability are grossly uninformed in this thread. He has the potential to go ape this season.


    Am I right in thinking he rotated with Osman last year? Do you think he'll start most games this season?


    I think he will start the vast majority of Premiership games with the likes of the aging Osman and Pienaar rotating in to the central role for European matches. Mirallas is also capable of playing the #10 role but, as I said above, the only true #10 at the club is Barkley.

    When you listen to Martinez speak about Barkley it's clear he is intending on building a squad around him. The only issue we have as FPL players is Martinez's rotation policy. He featured 34 times last season for Everton but was routinely substituted/brought off the bench. I can only assume as he ages he will begin to get more and more 90 minutes under his belt.

    The reason I like him for my team this season is that he is coming off the back of regular football last season, he shoots with both feet from absolutely everywhere, he plays in the hole in an attacking and creative side and he is an offensive focal point for the team.

    He is a gamble compared to the likes of Ramsey, Mata, Silva etc. But he does also cost £2m less.

  • 1st Draft - RMT PLease
    24 Jul 2014, 9:34

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first draft, so not necessarily my starting 11 come the 16th.

    Selection Reasons
    Fabianski - Cheap, and now that Vorm's gone I see him as Swansea's No.1
    Kolarov - Good points scorer for one of the league's top 3. I know he may be rotated...
    Davies - Just signed for Spurs and should get the permanent LB spot. Good money at 2.9m
    Debuchy - Cheap, and playing for a generally tightly defensive team. Nailed on starter I would imagine.
    Coleman - Had him last year and he did wonders. Will he reach the same heights this year? Priced highly enough to sub in someone else half decent should he start to miss games.
    Nasri - Should have another good season. Finished strong last year. Cheaper than Silva and Yaya.
    Ramsey - Potentially another good season on the cards. He's fit and raring to go, could be a decent points scorer again.
    Fabregas - I expect him to fit into Lampard's boots well, getting good game time and picking up points along the way. He knows the league and he's cheaper than Hazard.
    Sturridge - Not sure he'll be as good without Suarez but undoubtedly will be Liverpool's main man and has some good players around him.
    Giroud - Can see him scoring a bundle if Sanchez plays to the left of him, Walcott to the right and Ozil improves on last year.
    Bony - Decided to put him and make it 433 rather than go 442 and put in a midfielder of a similar price. 'Should' score some good points again this season.

    Your opinions/tips/comments would be greatly appreciated.

    I've only got Cameron in as Sigurdsson has a couple of tricky games in GW1 & 4 which he covers nicely. If it appears he's not first choice I'll shift him out.

    I think it's a sound pick if he plays, but if he doesn't I think it'll be a horrible waste of a transfer switching between 4.5ms. I'm not certain who I'll go with atm though. For me the 4.5s are the ones that really need to be secure of their place so they can just be left. Coloccini actually provides excellent rotation with Wisdom, so I'm actually tempted by him. It may actually lead to me altering my keepers as I'm also getting cold feet on Mannone - he looks to be getting exactly equal time in the friendlies with Pantilimon (both have 135mins so far), so it really looks like a toss-up as to who'll start.

    I don't see any value above Davies until I get to the 6.5m mark meaning I'd have to take a 6.5m or under midfielder. I'm not convinced Odemwinge is nailed on and don't see anyone else that I'm interested in. Certainly no one that will score more than Davies and Eriksen when paired up with Cahill.

    It does look pretty thin - I'm tempted to take a punt on Luis, but may stick with a second 5.5 from somewhere (bearing in mind we're not absolutely sure if Vermaalen is actually going to United, never mind whether he'd play week in week out if he does). I don't like the look of Odem any more either, but might go with one of the new 7-7.5 mids.

    What makes you convinced by Mata btw? He's really way down in my 9m mid hierarchy atm, behind Fabregas, Silva, Ozil and Ramsey for me.

    Look at the last few years points totals and you'll notice a trend. The top forwards score big. You can't do anything in the game without rotating them through either peaks in form/easier fixtures or extra fixtures thanks to the FA Cup/re-arranged games

    A 3 for 1 is only 2 extra games and costs 2 transfers. To get 10 pts you need a goal and a KC. Possible in a single game but not on average (400pt / season!). All more likely with a superstar so rotate your Aguero/RVPs not your Nasri/Bonys.

    3 for 1s are more frequent with FA Cup games (but who starts?) and rearranged games. All more frequent after xmas.

    Ignore stats as the transfers are mostly on transferred in players so the starting XI becomes irrelevant once they are sold and, as I said earlier, starting with someone who breaks/dies/goes abroad in August will massively skew things.

    If Fabregas/Mata/Silva/Ramsey were all 10m plus players then you could sort of see why you would take the punt and save 1.5m. Unfortunately that's not the case and although there's no reason to suggest he can't score big again, it's worth going for the more premium player and can downgrade if necessary.

    23 Jul 2014, 14:30

    So here's a team. Is there a reasonable expectation that this team will score similar to last season and therefore achieve a near 1700 base score ?

    I have put some players in brackets who may score similar points in the event of injury and I'm working on using 10 transfers to cover them. So that leaves 20 transfers to score 300 points or 15 points a transfer, which I am seeing should be used on 4 for 1, 3 for 1 opportunities. Daisy chain ? Not 100% sure if I am right that this means - transfer player out, take advantage of the 4/1 and then put him back in ? Which would mean 2 transfer used for 3 games where I should expect a minimum of 10 points per game from the transferred in player

    What are your expert opinions on Lallana this season?

    He was a points behemoth last season and is now part of a superior team.

    He is evidently a risk for rotation due to the wealth of talent Liverpool have in the final third but considering they splashed £25m on him I can't see him being benched a lot.

    At 8.5m is he worth taking over somebody like Ozil, Silva, Mata, etc?

    I personally am edging towards Hazard Eriksen too.
    The only issue is, this will leave me with zero City cover. But then again, there's nobody within City that jumps up as a surefire pick. Aguero is a fitness concern; Dzeko is a rotation risk, and Yaya will surely not repeat last season's heroics, will he? Silva, if nothing else, is consistent.

    My team will have 4 big midfielders, Ozil (or Ramsey), Mata, and either of the two above choices. And Van Persie as the big-money striker (+ 2X6M strikers).

    I've upgraded the subs to Cameron from Stoke (instead of Duff) and was able to bring in Sigurdsson and Eriksen as well.

    Also managed to get Dea Gea/Myhill.


    I know I still have Upson and Albrighton who may not be stellar, but hopefully this roster lets me survive a couple weeks, make some money and then I can strengthen the bench warmers.

    Team 1

    3 Stoke in the back 7 seems overkill to me.

    Januzaj at this stage seems like a punt at the price. Although you definitely need Man U coverage early, the midfield is hard to call.

    Sigurdsson I like if he moves to Swansea.

    Again too much uncertainty over Remy's starting role for me so it is a wait and see. I will likely chuck him in too if he starts though (from memory not a huge fan of Liverpool's start)

    Team 2

    Prefer Barkley to Januzaj here but not a fan of Everton's start.

    Ramsey and Sanchez seems OTT. I would swap one (or both) for Silva/Mata/Hazard/Fabregas (see above re Man U midfield uncertainty though). Swapping both may even let you do Zarate (does he start?) to Giroud which would give you Arsenal coverage.


    Legend! Thanks for the reply!

    Nothing if you really believe Nasri could do well, but I'd be tempted to pick a £9m midfielder as it's easy to switch to others in the same price bracket if your pick bombs, whereas your options may be limited if the same happens to Nasri at 8.5.

    Plus I honestly think Ramsey is a better pick. He may have hit 220 points+ last season if he stayed fit and carried on his form.

    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 :)


    The team above is only for gw1. Baines will join the team for sure. I know I will miss the top scoring midfielders but I wil have the top scoring defenders and forwards and if I manage to take good cheap midfielders it will be ok.

    About the last season -> Yes. I took many hits because I wanted to go more offencive on the second wildcard. I took Silva, Walcott, Coutinho, Hazard and Ozil but it was terrible for my team, because 4 of them were on 2 pts for 3-4 gwks then it was too late to switch them for good defenders. That was it... This year I will keep the five defenders all season long. If Baines or someone else have a difficult gw, then I may try 4-3-3 for that gameweek. The most important is to bring in the best cheap midfielders that can be rotated every gameweek. So don't worry about the bench. This bench is only for gw1.
