This is my team just now...
81721E00-DAFE-4946-9224-E77E3276FE39.png

My bench is dreadful and more than a few weak players in the team too, so very prone to injuries.

But I do wonder if there is too much concern given to you 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th man. If they can muster 3pts between them that’s probably OK.

You can spend a lot of cash in this part of your team and only reliably get 5pts instead of the bargain basement 3pts. Also cash locked up here is illiquid, it takes lots of FT’s to get at it.

So structurally I like having 9 players with some value and 6 who are fodder.defenders rarely come off the bench so it’s usually 2pts or zero for the cheapest ones.

I agree that cash locked here isn't liquid at all, transfers to these parts of the team should never be a priority. Both times this year I have made serious changes to my 11-15 players have been on a WC (I had other issues as well or I wouldn't have pulled the trigger). But a little extra spend on these areas when you have the luxury to do so is worth it imo. I reckon for max 1M more (depending on your purchase prices) I have a playing keeper (McCarthy) to cover Henderson when he misses against Utd, Lascelles to rotate with Stephens and both Cantwell/Hayden to provide the two pointers (with the possibility of more) should another player be rested/dropped.

Maybe it is a TV thing as I also have .5M ITB but that extra spend brings me points (Lascelles clean this week for example), flexibility and peace of mind. It was a luxury I would only go to on a WC or if I had a FT about to burn, especially when there aren't that many premium or upper mid range players screaming to be bought this year that I would need to scrimp to get to.

Not sure if you have any cash ITB, but if you had 0.5 would you swap Saka ( who LB instead of LW at moment) to Fleck who seems class act for Sheff Utd ?

Hey Stu, given your posts in TRK I imagine you’ve already read this article in the NYT, published in May about Liverpool’s analytics team. If not, grab a brew and enjoy. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/22/maga ... rpool.html
And if you subscribe to The Athletic, here’s a more recent one about Fortress Anfield, strong focus on how Klopp has changed the playing surface, down to the length of the grass required, since he took over. https://theathletic.com/1570062/2020/02 ... ed-article

So...

I have long had a theory that KDB went out injured last season and spent much of that time locked in a classroom with MCI's nerds.
This season Aguero was injured in GW13 and didn't come back until GW20. Interestingly his game has changed and we now have New-Aguero, to go with New-KDB. Lots of people will scoff at this but who cares? Modern football has no place to hide such things as analytic tools dig beneath the eye test and highlight stuff that video doesn't really show.

What does that even mean? Well take a look below at this map of shots taken...

Aguero GW 1 -13 ......................... Aguero GW 20 - ...
Aguero 1-20-38.PNG
Since returning in GW20 Kun has been prolific. But he isn't back to his old self, he is doing something different. There are whole areas of the penalty box where he just doesn't venture any more.

Previously and in all his data from past seasons, he plays straight down the middle of the goal, and he prefers to shoot from approximately 12 yards. But he just isn't playing that way any more.

Now he doesn't go beyond the left post. Ever. Interestingly this is also an area of the pitch where he did not score from GW1-13. In his data from previous seasons he is far less prolific outside of the left post. Now he seems to have been made aware of this, and is less wasteful and more efficient.

Kun is also making it into the six yard box much more than previously, his "shoot from" channel is now much narrower and also much deeper than before.


I find this stuff really interesting, whenever Man City players are out injured they seem to come back vastly smarter. I am therefore keenly awaiting the return of Laporte and Sane. What visible changes to their game will we detect?

That's Aguero's shot locations from GW 1 - 13 on the left side, and GW 20 - 25 on the right.

Same player in both maps.

Sterling has been on the left throughout. But look at how Aguero's shot locations have changed since his injury.

Yes, I know- my point was more with and without Sterling. I know Pep has something of an obsession with the ball over the top of the CB's to the left (for City) of the goal.

Dunno? I think he’s pants and he’s in my team.

This is all his passes since GW17 (baby). What’s he doing over here?

He will most likely be leaving my team for Jiménez and I’ll be keeping Calvert-Lewin in the process.

Taken a hit this week.

Think it’s only my 3rd of the season?

Vardy :arrow: Jiminez
Saka :arrow: Perez
£0.4m itb


That leaves me with this...

Why did you bring in Pérez for a hit?

Because it’s the only way to fit in the subsequent transfers around GW28 and 31.

I worked out the difference over the next 5 games is probably about 12pts if I take a hit this week.

What made you choose Perez above Barnes? Currently looking to get Barnes in but I can afford Perez, you think he's a much better pick?
