TFF chit chat 14th, 15th and 16th September

Post by morganb » 13 Sep 2019, 08:50

SATURDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER

Liverpool 12:30 Newcastle

Saturday's early fixture sees a mid-table Newcastle side travelling to Anfield to take on Klippity's Krew. Liverpool are the team to beat at the moment and it will be a hard task for Newcastle today, though they did beat Spurs earlier in the season. Assume Klopp will field his usual side against the Magpies.

Brighton 15:00 Burnley

The first of the 3pm matches is the B derby - Brighton welcoming Burnley to the Am Ex. Both sides are sat on 4 points and are only separated by goal difference. Burnley's Barnes had been banging in the goals before the IB. Brighton haven't won since the first game of the season.

Man Utd 15:00 Leicester

At Ole Trafford, Leicester are the visitors. United have slipped to 8th and have been leap-frogged by an unbeaten Leicester side who have a Jamie Vardy who is starting to have a goal-scoring party. United will be hoping for a win to get their season back on track. Is Martial fit?

Sheff Utd 15:00 Southampton

To Bramall Lane next for the S derby - 10th place Sheffield United welcome Southampton who lie in 13th. Both teams are expected to struggle this season so games like this are likely to be the ones to define the weeks and months ahead. Possible injury doubts over Robinson (SHU) and Redmond (SOU).

Tottenham 15:00 Crystal Palace

London derby! Get your London derby here! Cleansheet specialists Crystal Palace head North to play Spurs. Harry blew a few doors off over the IB but he's no Milivojevic where penalties are concerned. Ayew for Palace has hit good form recently. Spurs have Ali back.

Wolves 15:00 Chelsea

Two teams soon to be in European action up next. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are on their travels, off to Molineux to take on Wolves. Neither team has had an amazing start to the season but Tammy Abraham has surprised some people by banging in the goals at this level. Wolves have Doherty injured, Boly suspended.

Norwich 17:30 Man City

Saturday's late game will pitch Norwich against Manchester City. Pukki has been better than Ronaldo so far this year and kept up his scoring record over the International Break. City would expect to beat a newly-promoted side but it might not be that easy. Be interesting to see who Pepe plays at CB.

SUNDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER

Bournemouth 14:00 Everton

Sunday's early game has Everton off to the only stadium in the country sponsored by a brand of yoghurt to take on a not-so-great Bournemouth side. Everton lie in 6th place and are doing OK. Bournemouth just haven't got going yet this season, perhaps today's the day?

Watford 16:30 Arsenal

Sunday's late match sees Arsenal making the short trip to Vicarage Road to play against a Watford side who are under new management. Watford are rock bottom but will be hoping for a bout of new manager bounce. Arsenal are in 5th place and with an impressive strike force you would expect them to win.

MONDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER

Aston Villa 20:00 West Ham

And finally, the MNF features West Ham away to Aston Villa. Villa have shown some promise up until now with Wesley up front and Grealish in the middle of the park. West Ham looked to have made a quality signing in Haller. Come on you clarets!

I don't regard it as a dilemma just yet. In the very short term I'm prepared to sit on him. If his game time falls, (possibly below 70% in the EPL), I wouldn't have a dilemma in dumping him. The dilemma comes if he's still playing regularly in a few weeks time and he still isn't racking up any significant points. Remember last season, coming off scoring plenty of Championship goals, he was picked by many managers who'd dumped him by the time that he really started scoring. At this beginning of this season he was one of my main TFF picks, and I've stayed faithful so far. :oops:

I was one of those 'many managers'. Was doubly frustrating last year because Wolves were doing well and he wasn't contributing. They aren't doing as well this year - in the league anyway, good in Europe which maybe is tiring them out or taking away their focus. That would make me jump sooner but maybe not yet - unless there was a near must have replacement - I wouldn't call Mahrez that due to game time issues there as well. Mind you City do play after Wolves and are against a rubbish defence that is injury ravaged......

my thinking too -already have Sterling, KDB , Aguero so Mahrez seems best option for funds - tho bit unsure about loading up on Man C at this stage....think will see how 3pm game goes and decide after that (the time difference is downside of being in Aus!!)

City have a nice game next week too. Shame there is a CL game in the middle but that could help as anyone starting today could be dropped in midweek and play again next week. Could apply to borderline players like Mahrez anyway. Hard to work out Pep logic though.....

A lot of my thinking just now is who can I justify dropping for KDB. He looks back to his imperious best.

0-1 Willems (Atsu)

Thought today was a banker clean sheet. Definitely time to ship out those luxury Liverpool defenders.

1-1 Mane (Robertson, VVD)

Some compensatory points for the red blocks

Should have been 3 more just before that. VAR failing (again) to give a blatant penalty when Matip grappled down.

2-1 Sadio 'better value than Salah' Mane (probably Firmino depending how they view keeper cock up)
