Premier League Message Board
I guess Pellegrini was happy to field a weakened starting XI @Stoke for a couple of reasons. He may have not wanted to risk anymore injuries in what's always a tough game, plus they play the might of ... Viktoria Plzen! on Tuesday, (tickets £86, no concessions AND you go in the home end! lol) ... then an easy game v Utd on Sunday. I don't like managers doing that, but it's up to him. If Stoke had a decent striker, City would have lost that 2 or 3 nil.
Prices have changed bud. I have Boruc & JWP tomorrow, then Routledge Monday ... kind of hoping for another another 26pts to reach 400. The Oz Friday morning sickness turned out okay, I went for Ramsey, not because I thought he would score, but his tackling stats and interceptions were fantastic. Defenders did okay, Bassong even outpointed c/s'ers Zab & Wilson! ... RVP as cap worked out fine, although he's great, he does hit the woodwork a bit too much! Can't complain at all, better week.
I'm a bit hamstrung having decided to join Anthony's British (& Irish I hope) League, only 6 overseas players allowed! Mind you, it focuses your mind a bit more.
Very provisional "Only 6 foreigners* in the XV" squad for wk 5 ... subject to changes.
Boruc* a) Liverpool
sub : Elliot -filler
Baines a) West Ham
Dawson a) Cardiff
Wisdom h) Southampton
sub : Wilson a) Arsenal
sub : Kelly - filler (& cover for Wisdom)
Eriksen* a) Cardiff
Ozil* h) Stoke
Ramsey h) Stoke
Walcott h) Stoke
Lamela* a) Cardiff
Bent a) Chelsea
van Persie* a) Man C
sub : Suarez* (banned)
cash : 3.19m
I still have a number of players left, my team is LFC heavy. Good call on RVP... I thought about following the Rotoworld advice to grab him but didnt pull the trigger. With 333 pts my team is sitting at 2nd place in my friends(American) 24 person league so not a big deal. What do you think of my squad?
Forward - Lambert, Benteke, Sturridge
Midfield - Gerrard(C), Coutinho, Walcott, JWP
Defense - Lescott, Hangeland, Walker
GK - Mignolet
Bench - Ozil and 3 cheap players(Kelly, Oviedo and Elliot)
That's this week's eh? Yeah 6 to go, good luck mate! Mind you, I do have Routledge, so I'd like him to knock one past Mig! lol (just one will do) ... Actually you do have just 6 foreigners in the squad, so you can join Anthony's GB (& Ireland) League too. You could easily get 67 with 6 left to get to 400, even when Routledge scores! lol
Shogan used up all his players ... me 1 more keeper n ...Bolasepak 2 more gerrard n Surridge. points close 420 shogan zap 418 bolasepak 410..
Bolasepak ..danger man..How he come behind with Ben alfa.? Sneeky fellow..
Eriksen is a more versatile player as he showed us yesterday. fair play to him getting those points on his debut, couldn't have asked more from him. he will only get better with time once he adopts to the epl and knows his team mates well.
