Rd Rank: 479
Overall Rank: 98 (from 169)
Trades made: Out: H Kane and E Pieters, In: S Haller and F Schar
Captain: K De Bruyne
0-9: N Pope, J Grealish, J Maddison, M Mount, T Pukki
10+: G Sigurdsson, L Digne, M Salah, S Haller, F Schar and K De Bruyne
Very happy with new recruits Haller and Schar combining for 31 points on debut and have nailed my past 4 trades as last week Mount and Pukki combined for 36 points on debut. After 2 poor captains scores dished up by Salah and Kane in succession (both 4 points) I decided to give the duties to KDB who had a superb game to help me record my 2nd captains score over 4 and 2nd over 20. Now inside the top 100 after my 1st month of EPL and thank you to all that provided advice, assistance and assurance.
Before we are privy to break-evens my current plan consists of trading
Out: J Grealish, T Pukki
In: C Eriksen, S Aguero
Will bypass Pogba for the time being and look to get him eventually once his price and breakeven drop further. Targeting 1 of the Liverpool defenders in R6 to allow me to change my formation by dropping a mid and around the RD6-RD8 range I'll welcome back H Kane for S Haller.
Was the perfect round for my team, choosing my highest scorer as captain and my four lowest scorers all on the bench. I was happiest with choosing Krul on field over Pope ... only two points, but happy anyway!
Not sure what to do next, so glad I’ve got 2 weeks to stew on it. Team a long way off completion, so need to start working on that. I’ve used 4 trades so far and just over 14 mil in the bank. Time to start bringing in the value premiums whilst taking advantage of cheap cash generation too. It would be nice if I could get a strong team together in the next dozen trades or so.
