GW24 Captain

Post by swadd1er »

I thought I’d get the GW24 poll up straight away as there’s a few good options this week. Due to FA cup fixtures, I have left the poll open for re-votes if injuries force a change of mind.

Currently on Gundogan(C), DCL (VC)

Probably Gündoğan but I'm tempted to go for Other as comment have been in really bad form lately.

Torn between Gundogan and Mee at the minute, leaning slightly towards the latter.

What makes you think you're such a good captain pick? :wink:

Yes I think this could be a huge haul for Fernandes. Will Gundog even play both? I'm still torn between Bruno and Gundogan, blinded by DGW neon lights.

Good idea with the early poll.

Currently on Sterling(c) but hoping he gets a complete rest in the FAC. He's playing really well at the moment (could easily have had 2 assists yesterday to go with his goal) and I think/hope a big haul is around the corner. This would be a good week for it as he's quite low-owned; all the cute kids took Gündoğan instead.

Tarkowski (c) Bruno (vc) although may swap.. Bruno feels like he could haul.

My captain picks have been awful this season.

Tricky decision this week. I guess Werner (assuming he will be fit again) might also be a good shout vs Newcastle. But the instinct pushes me towards a DGW player. Still undecided!

On Pope at the moment with vice Fernandes. Might swap. Might go DCL. Tough one.

A close-to-nailed-as-you-get City attacking midfielder, getting hosts of chances and on pens, in a DGW 👍
Bruno a great fixture this week too, but it's overthinking it territory imo. We still see Gundogan as a bargain or cheaper pick when really he isn't - last 8 matches (from FFScout), he's winning on almost all the key metrics with about an hour's less minutes.

Gundogan - Fernandes

Starts: 8 - 8
Goals: 7 - 3

Shots: 21 - 32

And yes, it does matter how weak the opposition are, but City just put four past Liverpool and could've had more. Spurs (despite them likely shutting up shop) at home is an OK game, and Everton is fine too. They just conceded three to United. If it was one game against WBA vs. a single game against TOT/EVE it'd be different, but not in a DGW imo.

I think it's Pep's rotation policy that puts most people off. Unless you captain Ederson, there's always a chance a DGW becomes a SGW.

Yeah I think I'll go with one of the guys facing the Spurs team that just conceded five goals to Everton and the Everton team that just conceded four goals to Spurs.

:D :lol: I was thinking the same thing, but will probably still stick with Bruno as I have Stones, Silva and Aguero.

With Rodri out Gundogan may need to fall back and be less attacking... hence I've gone Sterling and crossed my fingers.

Rodri is fit according to Pep today.
