Stem - I think Pep’s presser has already happened, unless the Ags quotes today are from post match, are you after Firmino news?

(C) Pogba, City's ceiling is higher though, but they seem a little bit jaded past few games and don't have Fernandinho, I've got the feeling Bournemouth won't be the walk in the park everyone thinks they will be given the playing time City have had recently.

(VC) Higuian

Quick query that I want fellow FISOers to confirm for me if possible:

If you have 2 free transfers and you play the free hit chip does that reset your free transfers back to 1, or does it still roll the 2 frees ?

Cheers

Edit: Aguero for captain..

Don't worry just found it... "Please note that when playing either a Wildcard or your Free Hit chip, any saved free transfers will be lost. You will be back to the usual 1 free transfer the following Gameweek."

Press-conference dependent,
The news is that Jesus is now available this weekend so (along with Kun being 'knackered') this will probably lead me to a switch from Kun (c).

"Pep says Kompany is the only player he's met that can play 90 mins at a high-level after one training session. The City (c) missed 7 weeks before returning in the UCL. "It is not easy. You always need time but he knows his body perfectly. It’s a risk but it is what it is." #MCFC"

Source: www.twitter.com/bendinnery

So, the question is this: can Jesus play at a high-level after a couple of training sessions?

Pep's comments mid week suggested (to me) that he was waiting for his returning absentees to be 100% fit after the long international break, as opposed to rushing anyone back. His comments today throw a spanner in the works. On balance I still don't think Jesus will start, but the degree of uncertainty is enough to move me to (P)ogba. He's got the absolute certainty of starts, a definite 90m given his suspension for CL midweek, on pens, and Arsenal just ripped Saints apart so United may very well do likewise. I'm happy enough to take whatever points Kun/Sterling deliver as relative differentials.

Pogba (c), Sterling (vc).

I think Aguero is still odds-on to start, but Jesus being available definitely makes it a little bit more uncertain. The thing is, I now think that even if Aguero starts he will probably be subbed for Jesus around 60 minutes even if they are not leading comfortably, so that's why I may well chicken out from Aguero captaincy as well.

Haha, sorry I had the Bournemouth result in mind! Thought it had finished 3-0. To be fair they did slice them open, were 2 up after fifteen minutes and could've had 3 or 4 if Lacazette had his shooting boots on. That Saints performance still wouldn't see me betting against United scoring a handful. :D

Sorry if been mentioned already (haven't read whole thread) but don't forget Pogba banned in CL which even further guarantees his start. Pog captain for me.

I've gone Pogba (C), Sterling (V)

Could easily have gone the other way around though.

Currently Hazard (c), Pogba (vc). Will almost certainly switch them before deadline though.

Still on Pogba atm but am being drawn in the direction of Son. Arsenal don't keep clean sheets and Spurs bad runs don't usually last very long.

Currently Aguero (c) Robertson (vc).

The city rotation risk is the reason for Robertson as vc, orherwise it would be Sterling I think. But WHAT IF both Sterling and Aguero is getting rested...

Highy unlikely neither will start, imho the order is: Sterling likely to start then Kun then neither. (Both is in 2nd or 4th :wink: )

Having come on here to change my vote to Kün the chat has convinced me to stick with Pogba.
Obviously it’s my call. And I won’t judge if it all goes wrong. Probably :mrgreen:

Given my freaking genius advice this GW :shock: should I stick with Pog as Capt, and roll the xfer or be my usual cavalier idiot self and go Mosa Lah (said in best scouse accent) to Capt Sterling and bring in TAA to go with Robbo and VvD next GW?

Probably unlikely yes, but again, WHAT IF... ;)

This is the kind of game Aguero could score 4 goals in i think...
