Transfers: Robertson out, Maguire in
Game week 20 was a fairly decent week. 82 points on the board helped the team climb roughly 400 places on the leaderboard which isn’t a bad result at the moment. I’d have liked to get closer to that top 1,000 but I’ll hopefully keep chipping away at it over the coming weeks. I’m glad I only made one transfer as I was tempted to blow 3-4. Taking Robertson out was well overdue and Maguire was the sensible move considering how the point scoring system favours him. It was also the right move to hold onto Walker – lucky that he scored against Swansea but disappointed to lose the clean sheet. He probably still needs moving on at some point but happy with the points he returned this week. My biggest dilemma this week is that I’ve got my eye on bringing Rashford in, however Sterling has hit some form recently so it’s hard to make a case for taking him out. The other option would be to remove Salah but I’m not keen on doing that either. Swapping one of them out for Rashford would free up plenty of funds to strengthen my team elsewhere though.
5 points for Schmeichel, happy with any points he can contribute.
11 points for Maguire, delighted with his star man award in the FA Cup.
A fortunate 8 points for Walker as he got on the score sheet in the FA Cup.
A decent 15 points for Foden, glad I put him back in and will now probably stick with him for the duration.
Great to see Kane back so soon and getting 15 points straight on the board.
Pleased with 16 points for Sterling after a number of flat game weeks in a row, he’s now starting to pay off.
The team is starting to look in good shape once again. I’d ideally want to take out Mahrez and Walker at some point but I’ve also got to keep my eye on having enough funds for De Bruyne when the time comes to bring him back in.
I really want to get Rashord in the team as well but I can’t decide who to take out. It’s got to be either Salah or Sterling but it’s a tough call between the two. Despite his recent form, I’m leaning towards taking Sterling out, just to free up funds for improving the likes of Mahrez and Walker.
Tips for Game Week 21
I’d again suggest being fairly conservative with your transfers this week as there’s still three game weeks to go in the month. It’s always worth having a good look at the fixtures as well. Man Utd look like they’ve got two good game weeks ahead so their players could come into consideration more. Chelsea are the only one of the big clubs who only have 1 game this game week. It’s also worth noting that teams in the Europa League (Man Utd, Spurs, Leicester and Arsenal) all have double game weeks over the next two weeks, whereas Liverpool and Chelsea don’t.
