Post by RuudTheDudeVanTheMan »

Think I've covered all the main contenders without putting too many options as I'd hate to tilt anyone ;) Left out the Leeds players because I doubt anyone is going there this week! Hmm actually Villa also hammered Liverpool earlier this season and I've left them out too, oh well stick it in the "other" section if you dare :twisted:

Only have Gundogan from City so it'll either be him or Lingard or Jota when I bring him in. Currently have it on Lingard but that may change because we have the power to re-vote 8-)

I can't believe you've included [insert player name here] and left out [insert player name here]. The poll is [way too long/way too short] (delete as appropriate) and the [format/layout/inclusion of an Everton player] (delete as appropriate) hurts my eyes.

Have I covered everything?

I can't believe you've included Jesus and left out Mane. The poll is way too long and having some team names abbreviated, e.g. wba but others not e.g. LEEDS hurts my eyes.

Also, the correct abbreviation for Brighton is BHA, not bri

I can't believe you've included Werner and left out Alonso. The poll is not alphabetised and not having alphabetised the list hurts my eyes.

Cheers, Ruud! My captain will be AgΓΌero.

I can't believe the carping comments on here. Do people have no grace? :(

Will probably be an opportunistic captain for me depending on team selection in the midweek games. Would quite like to go for Ings but doubt he'll be in my team. :lol:

You are Dutch so maybe don't get the subtle distinction between constructive criticism, carping and crude sarcasm. Essentially, constructive criticism is when I do it, carping is when most others do it and degraded sarcasm is when PB does it (but he's from Leeds and they know no other way unfortunately).

Maybe that helps a little bit? :wink:

The correct abbreviation for Aston Villa is AVL. :wink:

I can't believe it that you have felt it necessary to put the abbreviations in at all, Ruud. :? It's another example of the incessant spoon-feeding that has developed in the FPL community.

However if you are going to put them in, the correct shortened form for Liverpool is WHI and for Leeds it's DIR. Don't think I'm allowed to mention the Spurs one nowadays. :wink:

No, great job on the poll, although the abbreviation for Crystal Palace is CRY, which is probably what you feel like doing at this stage. :lol:

Yeah, hurdle #1 is that he plays, which seems more likely now though Pep only started him once in the last 5 games and it looks like he's still on the naughty step. But hurdle #2 is that he'd actually have to do something useful, having started. :?

I can see City (and Liverpool and especially Chelsea) being very happy with a patient 1-0 or 2-0 at the weekend if they can get it. Might be best to look elsewhere, if I were to take a 1-week flyer for the captaincy it could be Ings.

Can't decide between Lingard, the man massively in form but playing against a reasonably solid Foxes outfit vs Lacazette, not is such great form but playing against the truely woeful blades...

Urgh, team looks horrible this week, so will probably be one of my new signees, KDB or Aguero.

Won't be chuffed if this comes off. While he was in my team I gave him the armband millions of times for no points at all. :roll:

Thinking about Aubameyang. Gone from potentially selling him to a hit to maybe captaining him.

Not on great form but looked good when he came on yesterday and all signs point to a start down the middle vs the worst team in the league.

Jota (C), Salah (VC)

Currently on Lingard but Salah is nagging away in the background.
