Hi all, before I ramble on about this week's preview, I would like to say...

Ok now back to the bread and breakfast of this blog...

Unfortunately my choice of Townsend as captain didn't pay off last week, but that didn't prevent me from rising up the rankings and posting a satisfactory score.  It wasn't a good weekend for midfielders and if you didn't have Suarez you missed out!

For GW10, I decided to make Aguero my number one transfer target.  Mainly because he is on form, has good upcoming fixtures and is City's main goal threat.  I had to sell Y. Toure to accommodate him, which is fine, as the Ivorian hasn't been as attacking with the return of Silva.  

I had £5.8M to spend on a midfield replacement at the start of the week, but due to the rapid rise of Aguero's price, my budget truncated to £5.6M.  This made De Guzman out of reach, but I wasn't too keen on him anyway.  I was very tempted to buy Arnautovic but his fitness and off-field issues were a concern.  Ravel Morrison was the stand out midfielder with my budget due to his flair and potential.  Moreover, he leaves with me £1.0M in the bank.  The resulting transfer changes have left me with a talented and youthful midfield to complement my strikers.

My captain for this Gameweek 10 is Aguero (a no brainer).  My vice-captain is Ozil.

GW Reject:

GW Hot Pick:

The origin of Aguero's nickname?

He has good upcoming PL fixtures.
Least likely to be rotated from all of City's strikers.
Has scored 42 PL goals in 72 games which makes him stand out.
