    V tempted by Austin tomorrow. Surely Everton will develop momentum soon and I just have a hunch they're going to pull one out of the bag. It's so difficult to judge those differentials which will get you moving up the table. I've just crept into the top 20 and aside from my first ever week, the first game of 2012/13 when I went top, i've never been top ten. Patience or 'he who dares, Rodney'...

    hmm... double transfer this week, so a 4pt hit.. to sort my midfield out and get rid of chadli..

    As long as I remain to stubborn and stupid to captain aguaro then this dive in places looks set to continue..

    Happy with my side this week though.. so lets see how it goes

    I feel like NOT captaining Aguero isn't an option.
    I so want to take a chance on Costa but when you see Sergio in literally the form of his career, there's no way he's not gonna tear Everton apart...

    Meh, this is one of those times where the best FF take a massive risk.
    If it pays off, they get a massive boost on everybody else.
    Some of the best players are the most risky

    Aside from that 3-6 aberration, Everton are not really getting taken apart. I'll be surprised if they concede more than 2.

    tbh a high scoring game would be nice considering baines gets involved in everton's goals

    Everton look to be settling nicely into the Martinez style of doing diddly-frickin'-squat for ages then going beserk towards the season end, winning a cup or winning completely improbable games.

    They haven't gone beserk, won a cup or won any improbable games yet, so they're halfway there.

    true, it hasn't been a good season so far but you sense something could start to get going.
    just depends if it'll be too late or not...

    Na it's way-off being too late. 7 points from the top four is nothing when so many of teams between them and that spot are just dross and Saints are still up there having ruthlessly capitalised from the freakish luck of playing all the very worst teams and playing them at the very best time.

    I think it's a touch beyond them but I wouldn't put it past them to challenge and to have a good run or go all the way in one of the cups.

    I'm going 0-1 tomorrow. I can feel it in my boner.

    had a good week when it was required, grinded it out with low points wen your opponent wasn't amazing.
    that's how it works in real life (kind of)

    Yeah I won't be surprised if they beat Chelsea at the bridge, Arsenal away, United and City this weekend.

    City are due a shock to the system tbh.

    Yeah man :cool:

    No way I'm gonna win the other leagues but if I can win the H2H league, my league between my mates and the super H2H league after week 20 then I will be very proud of my achievements in fantasy football this season.

    Contemplating whether to take a 4 pt hit to bring in a GK... Currently have Krul/Mannone so only have had 10 players the last 3 weeks.

    Which GK to bring in?

    Everton have a very good record against City, wouldn't surprise me at all to see them get a result tomorrow.

    Any ideas in how to get Azpi and Chambers into this team? Is it worth taking a 4pt hit this week again? My team is Fabianski, Jagielka, Clyne, Alderweireld, Fabregas, Hazard, Eriksen, Aguero, Welbeck, Diego Costa. Was thinking of ditching Jagielka and i'd still like to keep Welbeck.

    I can't justify not having aguero as captain right now. Plus most of the people in my mini league dont have him so it's such a strong differential.

    Same. Tried taking a risk last week to no avail. Not captaining Kun is causing more harm than good right now.

    It is essentially the same as costa at the start of the season. Unless your miles back not worth risking losing touch with the pack for potentially a small gain.

    Have stuck with Pelle for too long now. I watched MOTD last week and some of his misses were shocking. Still a bit hesitant on dropping him though because I think after he gets that one goal he'll start scoring consistently again

    Already have Costa and Aguero but might be worth getting Lukaku/Bony
