Waiting another week on C Eriksen to see how he fares this week so D James will be replacing J Grealish along with S Aguerro replacing T Pukki. With NFL underway and NBA around the corner it will be fun trying to juggle all of the formats but shouldn't be too difficult.

Likely going with K De Bruyne as captain again unless I decide to give Aguerro the duties on debut.

Hoping to turn M Mount, D James and S Haller into C Eriksen, P Pogba and H Kane over the next fortnight to 3 weeks and potentially making a profit from those 3 combined trades. Also will look to start grabbing some defenders (TAA, VVD, A Robertson, etc) come RD7-RD8.
Thought you said you were a novice ? You are going to have your side at super premium by Round 8.

Well done

;). Beginners luck.

But after the next 5-8 trades used to grab P Pogba, C Eriksen, H Kane, 1 or 2 of the Liverpool def trio, I don’t know what I’m going to do with the remaining 25 odd trades over the remaining 30 rounds.

sit tight on top of the table by the look of things, or start planning for DWG and teams not playing at all, when you might be lucky to have 5-6 players actually playing , little bit of NBA & IPL trading premiums in and out according to schedule

Is anyone going to hold Pukki for another week? By my rough calculations he would have a BE somewhere around 12, so not risking huge cash losses, but surely he doesn’t get one past Man City ... but he is playing at home :unsure: I think I’m leaning to move him on, but still undecided.

His BE is 8.

Scored against Liverpool , no reason he can't score against the Citizens especially with Laporte missing.

Trading to Aguerro this week.

If there are more pressing issues he would be fine to hold for another week but ideally you would like to trade him for 1 of Aguerro, Salah, Kane, Sterling, Haller or Abraham.

Not sure, 1 of 3 I'm considering to trade this week. I'll sort it out later this afternoon.

still no love for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang ?

Barnes & Wood should be looked at as well with Burnley's fixtures

Could then be sideways traded to a Kane, Sterling, etc in the coming weeks and the cash garnered from the Pukki trade used to upgrade a Stevens, Mings, bench def to a TAA, VVD, etc.
Certainly merit in using some of these low priced strikers for a very quick cash grab if they have a couple of good scores in a row , sadly I am still waiting for King & Kean to join the party.

Think Champions League starts next week , little bit of talk that Sterling might start on the bench this week or next , so certainly monitoring him.

Once Alison is back for a few games I think then will be the time for VVD & TAA , most of the better coaches on here generally will play a 2-5-3 setup but the must have mids might need a bit more time this season to sort themselves out

Formation change - Firmino moves to the bench. I’ve gone up up and away and brought in TAA to join VVD down back. Clean sheet please Liverpool.

T Abraham could be a good replacement for T Pukki as he’s posted consecutive scores of 22 and pockets $4.5 million.
After changing trades multiple times, I decided to keep Pukki for another week, with more pressing issues elsewhere in my team. Abraham is a good choice though as a replacement for him for anyone yet to make trades.

My trades are locked in now, ended up trading Pieters and Cantwell to Schar and Silva. Not sure it was the best choice, we'll see.
