It’s great to be back with some football to focus on. With only two fixtures for the game week I’ll keep my review fairly brief and will focus on plans for the rest of the season. I was delighted to return with 21 points and a jump up the overall leaderboard. Especially considering I’d not made a single transfer since football stopped. This was a deliberate choice – I felt like my team was performing well before football stopped and with so much uncertainty about what was going to happen when we resumed I decided not to tinker with my team. Ultimately I think this was a good decision – I was tempted to bring in Aubameyang with my May transfers and then use June transfers to take him out today. This would have been a waste of one of my June transfers with Aubameyang drawing a blank in his additional fixture last night.
13 points for Sterling. It was good to get some early points on the board with a star man and goal from Sterling.
8 points from De Bruyne with a penalty.
Despite Aguero starting on the bench, it was a positive that he almost grabbed himself a goal. It shows that even from the bench due to the number of goals Man City score that he’s always got the potential to get something out of a game. It was also a little frustrating that Jesus didn’t pick up at least 3 points.
At the moment it’s too early to see any potential issues with the team.
Tips for Game Week 41
My plan for game week 41 is not to rush into any transfers. We’ve got a weekend with FA Cup fixtures coming up during game week 42 so I don’t want to make any short term changes which might impact this. It’s tempting to try and do everything to get Harry Kane in but it’s worth remembering that Spurs are out of the FA Cup and Champions League. Having said that, I’m definitely going to be keeping an eye on who’s starting over the weekend, just in case I decide to make any moves. At the moment though, my plan is to remain patient.
Over the longer term, I believe the European fixtures are going to be played in August, after the Premier League is wrapped up. I don’t know, but I assume these will count for Dream Team points. As a result, I’m slowly going to use my transfers to move towards a team which is split between Man City and Man Utd players – with both clubs still firmly in European competitions.
I’ve also updated my fixture list to reflect the rest of the season. Keep in mind that I put this together as a rough guide for myself – and time was against me so I can’t be 100% certain that it is completely accurate.
