    Pick two from Costa/Aguero/Sturridge/Rooney/Falcao.

    (Original post by Lúcio)
    I got welbeck-Sturridge-Costa

    Main men for arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea

    Although if Balotelli hits the ground running and Sturridge doesn't improve much, maybe swap him in?
    Would be a big gamble though...
    And in terms of 1 cheaper strike who would you recommend? Naismith, Berahimo, Ulloa, Bojan, Weimann etc etc?

    Naismith is in great form and has always been fantastic value imo. But he definitely has the most competition in Lukaku and Eto'o.

    I swapped Bojan out because he was doing awfully.

    I'd go for Ulloa - who has looked good - or Naismith.

    If you can afford Welbeck, get him. Think he'll be a very good signing for Arsenal.

    also what do you guys think of Niko Kranjcar?

    Really? The guy can't shoot to save his life and doesn't score many. For a striker I don't think he poses much of a goal threat which is ultimately what you need for fantasy football (doesn't matter about his work rate etc)

    He does need to work on his finishing but his record when he's actually played up top is pretty good, to be fair. Did a good job for us when RVP was out around xmas/new year last year, then dithering Moyes dropped him :rolleyes: I'm probably a tad biased but if Wenger can make him more clinical, he's an absolute bargain.

    ulloa for me.

    naismith would be the second choice but he may be overshadowed by lukaku/eto'o
    ulloa is the main man for leicester and he's looked really good so far.

    I've got Naismith at the moment, looks like Roberto is going to use Eto'o as an impact sub so he should be starting and at the moment he's scoring

    Berahino would be my second choice off that list and Ulloa is decent too - don't think Weimann will score enough and Bojan isn't getting enough points, I sold him after two weeks

    So much wrong here. Welbeck's hit rate (1:2.2) is excellent when playing as a CF, and ok when playing as a winger (1:7 I think)

    What does everyone think the pecking order for penalties at United will be with say all three of Falcao, RVP and Rooney happening to be on the pitch? It was RVP ahead of Rooney last season wasn't it?

    Just pondering Falcao as a choice really. He doesn't really assist at all and 15 of his 61 goals from the last three season's worth of league games were penalties...

    Going by statistics, Aguero is the best choice. Averaging a goal every 113 minutes.

    Yeh it was, but the two were rarely on the pitch together at the same time. I suspect it'll be:

    Penalties - Falcao/RVP
    Free kicks - Rooney
    Corners - Mata

    Ergh. If this is how it works out that makes all three strikers somewhat unappealing

    Mata will be lucky to be on the pitch, never mind taking set pieces

    It really depends on what Van Gaal does with our formation. 3-5-2? He's not getting in the team. 4-3-3? Diamond? 4-2-3-1? He'll probably start. In terms of FPL I would avoid him like the plague at the moment, his value is dropping too.

    I want Di Maria but it's hard to justify dropping any of Rambo, Fab, Siggy & Sterling.
