#FlyBuy - GW18

Fresh from the success of the inaugural #FlyBuy last week I feel the need to try and keep the momentum going. Was Rickie Lambert an inspired pick, or a complete and utter shot in the dark? Well, to be honest I had put a lot of thought into it and narrowed the shortlist down to two. Lambert and Newcastle 's Yohan Cabaye. He would have also have been a decent pick as he scored as well.

So onto GW18; a great deal was expected of this player at the start of the season. He started off by scoring a goal in GW1 and GW2 but then he went rapidly off the boil as his manager chose to completely disregard his strengths and make him play a role he will never be suited to.

But that manager is gone. The talk over the last few days has all been about the reemergence of Adebayor. But that's not my pick. No, with the potential to fly high again, you need to put your faith in : Roberto Soldado

This guy is a poacher in the Gary Lineker mould. Take a look at his goal reel for last season when he was at Valencia.
