OVIEDO OUT & BARKLEY IN
2 FREE TRANSFERS AVAILABLE FOR GW35
Rising 7,000 places & seeing another DGW appear can only mean this:
Glad all over? Well, err, almost!
The DGW 34 Temptations:
JASON PUNCHEON - Scored his first goal in 10 GWs and bagged 16pts to boot last week. At £5.0M he is a steal. But with Palace de facto safe will he carry on scoring regularly? Doubt it.
ADAM JOHNSON - Sunderland may be down and out, but if there is one person who will do well for them, it is AJ. Hasn't started every match recently, yet remains a key player.
SERGIO AGEURO - Is he 100% fit? Will he start both DGW matches? I don't know. As tempting as he is, he needs form. I may try and buy him in DGW37, but DGW34 may be just too early.
The DGW 34 Transfer:
Barkley may be a risky transfer, but I believe he will start at least 1 of the 2 matches. Give him an inch and he will take a mile. Amazingly, almost 20% own him, so hardly a differential! I could have bought 2 or 3 players just for this DGW but 9 should be enough. I didn't fancy benching Suarez + Aguero. I'm not too keen on benching Sturridge either, but I have no choice. Having said that, does anyone want to take Ki or Mannone off my team? Be my guest.
It was a straight forward toss up between Silva and Lukaku. Both have form at hand. I opted for the former, as City score more goals at home and away in comparison to Everton. Lukaku should score at least 1 goal, but Sunderland away + Palace at home won't be straight forward.
The Personal Competitive Context:
Following leg 1 of my Dugout Quarter Final tie, I am +11 up on my opponent (Bryan). Fortunately he has Mata & Rooney (who have blanks this weekend), has no goalies and the injured Yoshida to boot. Ouch! If I can overcome him, I could face another Dugout regular (Tony) in the semi finals!
