Game week 10 proved to be a massive improvement on previous weeks. The team made a huge jump on the overall leaderboard and hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the weeks ahead. There are still areas to be improved and I feel a little bit like Man Utd at the moment – if Ronaldo performs then my team tends to do well. Despite a positive week and a fresh set of transfers, I don’t think I’ll be rushing into making too many changes for game week 11. There are some tough fixtures on the horizon for the bigger clubs, it’s a single game week and there’s an International break after. As a result, I may sit tight and utilise my transfers when we return from the break. Having said that, if someone like Traore isn’t starting, I may well just replace him as I plan to at some point anyway.
Benrahma was close to making the list of players to take out. His 20 points this week has saved him from the chop for now.
I was also beginning to doubt Ronaldo, only on the basis of my team not being very well balanced. However, his 33 points means I’ll be holding onto him now.
18 points between Rudiger and Azpilicueta was a good result but I’d prefer the later to be starting more games given his value.
4 points from De Gea was better than nothing.
Happy with 10 points from Fernandes.
Two players absolutely must go from my team and that’s Bertrand and Traore. Traore isn’t starting enough games and Leicester can’t keep a clean sheet with Bertrand also facing time on the bench. The biggest problem is finding players to replace them with. Traore is a swap for someone like B. Silva or Moura but I need to find funds to replace Bertrand. I’ll probably take out De Bruyne or Azpilicueta to make this happen but ideally not before the International break. Other than that I’m not too unhappy with my team now.
There’s a question mark next to De Gea but not many other keepers are returning huge points and Ederson still isn’t much further ahead of him in terms of overall points. Man Utd have good fixtures come December as well so I may just ride out the storm – not that I’ve got much faith in them coming good defensively but they can hardly get much worse.
Tips for Game Week 11
As I’ve mentioned above. I’m personally looking to hold onto as many transfers as possible before the International break. However, if you’ve got injured players it’s probably worth taking them out. I’ve updated my fixtures spreadsheet for the top clubs below to include December’s game. It’s worth checking out before making any moves. An area I’m really interested in, is who is everyone looking at around the 3.5m or less mark? I personally can’t see any who stand out as obviously big point scorers but I’m considering the likes of:
Must admit some of these are very much scraping the barrel but need to replace Bertrand and Traore.
