I’ve decided not to make any transfers this week. I’ve debated every possible option over the international break and I simply can’t see an obvious route to take for more points. For me it would be a big gamble to take out one of the big guns – especially if there’s no route to getting them back in. I’m also not keen on blowing all three transfers before a ball is kicked for the month as we know how quickly things can change. As a result I’ve decided to give it a week and then make a decision. I’m fairly happy with the team I’ve got so I think it may just be change for change sake rather than a long term plan. I also want to have a look at if B. Silva starts this week and how much game time Pedro gets as I’ve got question marks next to both of them. I also want to look at Liverpool defensively against the bigger teams.
It’s worth noting that in some of my other teams I’m being less cautious. I’ve got another team on similar points and in that team I’ve taken out Kane and put in Lukaku and Hazard. So it’s worth noting that I can see the case for going for it but I can also see the value in holding the transfers.
