#FlyBuy - GW6

Oh man, here we go again. It's time for FlyBuy. I'm beginning to dread this time of the week. If @PatheticoMorbid hadn't already trademarked #TheCurse, that's what I'd seriously be considering renaming this feature! Another spectacular fail for last week's pick - Yaya Toure - although he did decide to kick me in the slats by scoring a penalty in the League Cup the other night. Grrr!!

I've decided, for this week, to spare little or no time analysing form or fixtures and just go with my gut. I guess you can argue that careful analysis has failed miserably, so what have I got to lose? I know that many of his owners will have dumped this week's pick over the last few days, but I believe this will prove to be premature. Act in haste, repent in leisure. This guy is the real deal. OK, he hasn't proved it (yet) this season with a measly return of just 8 points in 5 games which includes no goals and only one assist. And he's a striker. It should have been 11 points, but he rather stupidly got himself sent off last week. This is the reason why I think why over 21,000 FPL managers have transferred him out over this past week, assuming he would serve a ban for GW6. Not so. The ban was served during his team's League Cup game mid-week, so he is good to go on Saturday. Away at already-relegation-fodder Sunderland.

It is, of course, Wilfried Bony. Yours for only £8.3m and a stunning potential differential with an ownership stat of just 4.8%. He's proven, and he will start to accumulate points in a Swansea side that started well with 3 consecutive victories, but have stuttered recently with back-to-back defeats. They will see Sunderland as a chance to get back to winning ways, and over the next few Gameweeks I predict it will be Bony that makes that happen.
Will you "double-down" with him and Sigurdsson? It could just well pay off...
