    Who would you prefer to have this weekend, Aguero + Sterling or Balotelli + Silva?

    I reckon Balotelli will do well today. But Aguero's Aguero so even though he doesn;t get 90 chances are he'll still do well.

    Aguero and sterling for sure.

    Aguero always seems to score and sterling always seems to do something major in a match.

    In a single game week, Balotelli and silva could kill it; both capable of getting multiple assists and goals in a match
    But I think the former option is a safer bet to be honest since they're more consistent performers.

    How do you solve a problem like

    Di Maria, Sterling, Fab, Sig, Ramsey
    Welbeck, Costa, Naismith?


    Have to drop one and would normally be one of Welbeck and Naismith but I reckon both will do well this weekend.

    That was my EXACT problem last weekend, no joke.
    I put Naismith on the bench in the end which turned out well.

    I don't think you can afford I bench anybody besides Naismith or welbeck to be honest.
    And I think between the two, welbeck is more likely to get better points imo.
    It's up to you really; I traded for Ulloa to avoid another situation like this, I can keep him on the bench and he's a solid sub

    Although when Sturridge returns I may have a bigger problem; might have to get rid of Ramsey

    In fairness if Villa are gonna win it's gonna be by shutting out the opposition. How many goals have they conceded this season? Like 1 maybe?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    ah but have they played welbeck yet this season...


    + the story goes:

    Get home from work last afternoon, head out to celebrate with wife for finishing her masters, get a little drunk, captain welbeck... wake up at 11.45... panic.

    Admitadly I did want to do it before drinking.. but did at that point I did not have the balls to make such a stupid choice..


    For now though: Captain welbeck will lead my team forward!

    Dropped Welbeck for Naismith. Palace have conceded an average of 2.2 goals a game so far. Villa have conceded 3 all season. Besides, I also have Ramsey so hopefully he'll be involved in any Arsenal goals.

    In a game where I have 1 defender from each side, it is 1-1. Of course it is.

    I picked Ferdinand from the start because in pre season I heard it would have been 5 at the back and I thought they would be good defensively and it was only in a home/away rotation. I think when I have a spare free transfer I will get rid of him but for now I could just bench him.
    Originally I planned to have a defense of Debuchy - Azpi - Collins - Ward - Wilson but then Pulis left and West Ham started trying to attack so I have to swap out Collins and Ward. I also went for Davies and Felipe Luis in place of the first 2 (inspired choices, I know.) I needed some cheap rotation options and it left me with Ferdinand and Clyne. I made some really poor choices defensively but I have made so many transfers that I can't waste points on swapping out cheap players.
