Week 24 - My Team

Reina

Caldwell   Kolarov   Bale

Anderson   VDV   Adam   Nani

Dembele   RvP  Torres

Probably the least pleased I've been with my final team all season, but we'll see how things pan out. Maybe I should've downgraded Nani to Meireles so Anderson could've been improved, but I was too hungover to think this morning.

Good luck to all, please let me know what you ended up saving! Who are you looking at on the barndoor?

Cheers,
AM

I wrestled most with Nani or Rooney. I know both diod not play that much, but I am scared both will get rested in one of the twomatches. I believe Nani is most likely to be, though that is only a gut feeling. I chose Rooney, as I think he will destroy Brum and Nani will have a hoorid time in a five-man midfield. We'll see...

Ended up with
Stockdale
Kolarov Caldwell Skrtel
VDV Adam Nani Meireles Dempsey
Rooney Varney

Second time i went with varney, skrtel and adam for a DG. Adam did well but varney and skrtel let me down. Hopefully they will do well this time round.

Well, I;m trying to make up a little ground in my private league, so I went with a couple of slightly different DGers - Rodallega up front and Downing in the MF. Didn't seem that too many people were going with them. And I am hoping Bent fires right away for Villa...

billthegrunt said...

OK I caved and added some more DGers. Good luck to all:

Reina
G. Caldwell / Vidic / M. Kelly
Fabregas / Adam / Meireles / Van der Vaart
Beckford / Dzeko / Torres

Birty said...

geez, a lot of people still treating Liverpool like a top 4 team. Maybe its because I'm a Manc but I wouldn't trust any of them.

Foster, bale, bardsley, walker, evra, adam, nani, mark davies, gyan, rooney, odemwingie.

5 DGs, chickened out on dropping a discounted Bardsley at the last minute and decided on davies rather than DGs like Anderson because he seems to be scoring well and Bolton only have chelski at home

greginho said...

well my walcott gamble has begun. i am hoping that walcott goes on a run and i have him at 12.
ben foster
crainey, rio, caldwell
van der vaart, walcott, nani, dempsey
van persie, taylor-fletcher, dembele
i chickened out that andrew johnson was not going to start and brought in dembele who is not in any form since he is just coming back.

for the barndoor, all arsenal players are good so i am bringing in koscielny. gyan and dzeko are in as well. i will decide later if i want to drop dempsey as he has a good matchup. bentley will also have to be picked up.

Anyone know if Foul Committed includes handballs?

I wanted to keep RvP. I didn't. I wanted to pick van der Sar, as I know he is capable for a 30+. I didn't. I wanted to avoid Reina, as I don't trust 'im any more. I didn't. But I'm pretty happy with my team, which is something unusual in a double week. Let's see if I can make it to the top 200 this week

Reina; Kolarov, Kelly, Evra; Adam, Dempsey, Watson, Etuhu; Torres, Berbatov, Bent

J. Reina

RVP Dzeko Rooney

Already regretting picking Rooney over Torres.

I'm with AM...hard to be pleased with this weeks team. Must have put together a dozen different combination's the past couple of days, and this is what I came up with:

Szczesny
Koscielny / GCaldwell / MKelly
VDV / Adam / Meireles / SPetrov
RVP / Torres / Bent

Last week ended up far better than expected, and hopefully this will add to it. Tried to get some ManU studs in, but just wasn't pleased w/ getting them in and sacrificing other parts of the team with less than quality players. We'll see how it all comes out in the end...

Cheers!

maybe torres would have been a good option then. still don't trust liverpool as far as I can throw them. also any other day of the week, my front line of dzeko, rvp and rooney would be in anyone's team!

Berbatov 2

Anonymous said...

1. Bale is injured
2. Even if he weren't injured, Pienaar took his place on the left wing, downgrading Bale to LB

This should signify a drop in Bale's value even if he werent injured

i have torres but dropped dempsey and downgraded evra 2 rio to get.?

good or bad?

My defender commits a penalty and my striker misses, just great.

Hello what about miss penalty ? any reducing point if a player miss penalty? stupid RVP

kwyjibo said...

This just in:

Both of Torres' goals have been disallowed, and the team fined, for playing a player who was supposed to be suspended this weekend... ;)

Thanks everyone for a fun weekend of posts thanks to the whole Torres suspended confusion! It was fun...

Anyway, missed out on the Berbs hat-trick, but got one from RvP instead! 5 goals so far, including the brilliant strike from Meireles. Dalglish can't possibly bench him for Gerrard's return after that performance, can he?!

Anonymous said...

got RVP and Berb this week! Awesome!

Dave2 said...

Nice return to YFF form for Adam - 4 SOTs and the PK goal. Keep for a home match vs West Ham next week?

BTW - Spector scored, is 3.71, playing in the MF. Sounds like a good filler. Certainly better than G. Caldwell this week :(

And since when does Dempsey take PKs for Fulham???

Birmingham looked awful today (yet again)...hmmm, maybe I will try to fit in teh ENTIRE ManCity side against them LOL LOL.

So...who on the barn door??

rwlwhite said...

how long before rooney does something? i keep getting duped into buying him and he does sweet fa. the words 'dead to me' come to mind but i don't want to say them just yet...oops

at least i had rvp with a trick!

Anonymous said...

Kyle Walker not in the line-up. Thoughts, speculations, wild rumours?

Anonymous said...

this is going to be the best double game week in history of YFF.

bent scored too,i cant wait to see the points ,feel good to have 8 goals so far.

Anonymous said...

137 with Bent and Kolarov looking good. Caldwell red card, so 7 players for the double.

Hello guys,

I have a monster week and I'm extremely happy!

Team:

Reina
Kolarov (probably 10+) Kelly Walker
Nani,Adam, Dempsey, Watson
Berbatov, Van Persie, Bent (lookin' good)

Currently on 165.50 pts and Overall rank: 897th (+1,434) and I have Bent, Kolarov and 9 more (if Walker plays) more players for next week. I hope you all had great weeks. I'm selling Walker and Watson for next week.

Team name:

DIMITAR BERBATOV FC [AM.Blog]

Birty said...

I hate this game sometimes.

Anonymous said...

villa clean sheet 1-0 to citeh
bent the villian suddenly become the hero!
sadly...k.walker wasn't in the team, and lost out on the clean sheet point!!!
but a great week with 147.5 points so far!

Kellz said...

138pts + Kolarov + Hoilet to go. Moved up to 59th place, my highest ever!

Reina, Kelly, Adam, Meireles, Torres, Rooney to go midweek

Looks like a HUGE week over all with many teams in the upper 150pt range.

BD Team ATM:

Reina,
Bale, Kelly, Kolarov
Nani, Adam, Meireles, VDV
Torres, RvP, Di Santo

Big decisions to make, like Bale's back spasm and shift to LB which arguably takes most of his fantasy purpose away as Spurs don't keep CS's. I won't have Di Santo in my team as I favor Dzeko, therefore one of Adam, Nani, Bale will probably go, and its looking like Bale awaiting news. Holding VDV @6mil for 3 weeks of 0's is one thing, holding Bale @12.87mil for 0's is a whole other deal.

Can we just stop for a minute again and say WHOA to all the players who scored above 20+

Amazing

Good luck tomorrow and mid week guys!

1.13% of managers got burned by Gary Caldwell this week! And I'm one of them. But 141 pts though, with 6 players to go.

Anonymous said...

156 with 7 to go, what a week, i even lost about 200places. I hope the additional 19pts from Kolarov and Bent will move me back up.

Anonymous said...

120.5 and lost 20 places from where I started the day! 7 DGers to go if SAF plays Rio :(

richard_pitts_2000 said...

145.5 with 9 DGs to go!!
Stockdale,
Walker, Kelly,Skrtl,
Adam,VDV,Nani,Meirelies
Bent,RVP,Taylor-Fletcher

Shame about Kelly and the fact I swapped Berbs for Bent, but it's hardly the stuff of nightmares. That's supporting the Scottish team Hibs which is why I never pick ex-Hibee Gary "Calamity" Clangwell. Another ex-Hibee David Murphy for Birmingham on the other hand is my tip for next week.

What is the news about bale walker and rio dammit

Anonymous said...

I wanted to drop Torres for week25 but mistakenly dropped berbatov. I didn't want to play against stoke city.

paul mac said...

just watched the premership here in ireland.injury news is rio is out for 2 weeks with groin strain.bale went off with a back spasm after 10 mins which he has been suffering with for a few weeks and is going to hospital on monday for a scan on it and may need an operation.walker got injured in training yesterday .slight strain but doubtfull for midweek game.this info came from the managers interviews after the games

paul mac said...

what an amazing week.i had 8 goals in my team and scored 155.5points.and that is with a no show for walker and a half a point from danny murphy.and to my amazment i dropped 1 place overall with that score.still to play reina,kelly,walker(if fit), adam,nani,meireless,murphy and torres

I think Bale is suspended next week.

156 and i still dropped about 200places, wtf!

Alex Darlo said...

I maybe wrong, but you won't have dropped 200 places, with the midday game the scores update, putting you up or down, then with the 3pm games the scores come out and you move places, you will have jumped significantly at this point, but then Villa v City comes in and that's what will have moved you down, people with Bent or other Villa high scorers will have jumped you, so to speak.

kwyjibo said...

7 goals so far. 141 points. Up about 800 places to 2069. 6 DG's to go, maybe 5 if Walker doesn't play again. The other worry is Gerrard coming back, but as I said before, Meireles can't be benched after that performance ... right, Dalglish?

Anonymous said...

I had Bent and Kolarov, lost 1 place when the Villa v Man City scores came in.
