    Yet another slightly different draft.
    Team Value - 98.5m
    De Gea - Krul
    F.Luis - Debuchy - Cameron - Mariappa - Collins/Ferdinand
    Mata - Eriksen/Lamela - De Jong - Shelvey - Tiote/Albrighton
    Rooney - Costa - Adebayor/Dzeko


    Considering dropping De Jong and getting both Eriksen and Lamela. Also thinking about Siggy in for Shelvey assuming I can still afford it, a want a Swansea midfielder to rotate with Cameron. I will change any player who is not starting consistently. If I can save another 0.5m then I could upgrade De Jong to Fabregas.
    I would also like B.Davies and Shaw in defence but can't see how to work them in, maybe Davies instead of Debuchy?
    Any suggestions would be good.

    I would pay the extra 0.5 for Caulker over Ferdinand and another 0.5 for Ward over Mariappa. Worth it. It's exactly what I did as well.

    I plan on using them both in a home/away rotation and I am only really looking for clean sheets as I don't think Caulker or Ward will be getting many attacking points. I just want the cheapest possible defenders that will play from QPR and Palace and ATM it looks like Ferdinand and Mariappa (although Yun is playing a lot at 4m as well.)
    I can't see Caulker and Ward getting more points than my options by enough to justify spending another 1m when that could be spent upgrading Costa to Sturridge after a few weeks or De Jong to Lamela. They seem like much more worthy upgrades to me.

    Some advice/feedback for my current team please. Set it up late last night;

    Szczesny

    Debuchy, Jagielka, Lovren, B.Davies

    Mata, Oscar, Ramsey

    Rooney, Lukaku, Bojan

    Subs: Krul, Sigurdsson, S.De Jong, Upson

    I did originally have Rooney, Lukaku, Dzeko but thought I'd stick Bojan in (think he'll impress) and could then stick Sigurdsson and De Jong in as backup that way. Both set for bright seasons I believe, especially Sigurdsson in that #10 role just behind Bony.

    Cheers guys
    Too much quality/money will be left on the bench each week imo. Huge rotation headaches having to leave either two of Bojan/Sig/DeJong or one of them and one of your big defenders on the bench. And what little_wizard said wrt to Oscar. Doubts on whether he'd be a regular starter, at least to begin with.

    Done a switch of my substitute strikers - Nugent seems like a bargain at 5.5 in my opinion .

    I'd do that transfer if I were you, downgrade Krul as well since that's the easiest way to get your 0.5m. DDG won't be leaving your team anytime soon due to United's opening fixtures.

    Krul > 4.0
    Debuchy > Davies

    Gives you 2.5m ITB to do:

    De Jong > Fabregas
    Collins/Ferdinand > 5.0 defender

    Here is the link to the previous thread:



    And a link to the Fantasy World Cup, if anybody is interesting in knowing how it went:


    And copied from the previous thread:

    Registrations will only be accepted if you post your team name in this thread. You have until the start of the season to do so or you will be removed from the league. This is to prevent randoms joining who have gained access to the code. Anyone who has not submitted their team name and is in the Head to Head league will be removed before the league kicks off.

    To ensure that only proper members of TSR are in the league, you should ensure that you have a post count of 500 or more (from anywhere within TSR) by the end of September. Don't be put off by this as it may change or be scrapped altogether to save me time from going through and removing people.

    Finally, for the H2H leagues: there are three divisions of 20 teams. The top 6 (+2 others) go into the top division next year. After 19 weeks (the halfway point), the top 3 in each league will be entered into a 'Champions League' for the final 18 weeks.

    Good luck to everybody, apart from Colbert.

    I see your point, it did feel a bit odd to spend £5m on QPR and Palace. But then when Pulis came in, their defence was a rock. Also, Mariappa, despite starting, isn't really favoured by Pulis. Also, Ferdinand has absolutely zero goal threat and probably isn't fit enough to get through every game. Caulker scored 5 last year which is easily worth the additional money, just by scoring a couple more goals. 0.5 on each of them is great value imo.

    need a striker for 5.5m can't decide between Campbell for Arsenal or Bojan for stoke, I could take out Rooney for someone slightly cheaper and add some value on to a 3rd striker I guess.

    Well Campbell won't play and Bojan probably will, so there you go. I like Bojan as an option. I'd keep Rooney.

    You slashed the cash in midfield quite a bit. Any injuries, rotation or suspensions and your team is in trouble. I would drop Silva for Eriksen, Sanchez for Ramsey and then improve on Nugent but that is just because I think 3-4-3 is always the way to go.

    Another bit of tinkering (not gambling on Diego Costa right now at 10.5) has left me with:

    Foster
    Debuchy - Shaw - Cameron - Ferdinand
    Fábregas - Nasri - Arnautovic (v)
    Dzeko - Rooney (C) - Lukaku

    Subs: Guzan/ Tadic/ Ward/ Sigurdsson.

    Foster and Guzan will rotate this season. Will probably sell Debuchy after a couple of weeks due to difficult fixtures with a view to bringing in Eriksen/ Felipe Luis. Sigurdsson and Tadic will start more often after they get their tricky opening games out of the way.

    Not 100% sure on Nasri and having the Foster/ Guzan partnership.

    Current team £99 mil value. Not sure whether to remove Remy and get a cheaper forward and put in another high scoring midfielder like Ramsey

    Personally I think Remy is a good shout.
    For the lesser teams, you want to have their main striker because he is "likely" to score most of their goals.

    For that reason, I have Remy and long up front with Sturridge.
    Not too expensive, meaning I can have a high quality midfield and defence.
