If you search "Tank" in YFF Lampard will be one of the results.

"If you search "Tank" in YFF Lampard will be one of the results."

I can validate that!

De Gea
Baines/ Mertesacker/ Santos
Silva/ Nasri/ Walcott/ Taarabt
Aguero/ Mata/ Ruiz

So, a search for 'Tank' gets you Lampard, but a search for 'Santos' does NOT get you André Santos. It brings up D. Santon (who?) and G. dos Santos.

Hmm...time to adjust the search algorithms...

Razesh said...

D.Santon is a left back...came from inter

Codename: oCHe said...

Who would you pick....David Santon vs QPR or Mertesacker vs Swansea?

i would suggest keeping an eye out for Ruiz, heard nothing but good things about him.

Shame Yahoo seem to be on the ball this year and have listed him as a forward and not an attacking midfield or winger. Can't see him getting in my team this week ahead of Rooney, Kun and dzeko.

Briggs, Gibbs or Brown is my final choice - leaning towards the man with orange hair

Rangel Bosingwa Santos
Silva Young Walcott SWP Nasri
Mata Dzeko

Dropped Agureo and Suarez and i am loving this team, only problem is i don't have any Man City defender, but with Richards seeminlgy out i cannot do anything about that.

Dropped Aguero and Suarez but besides not having a Man City defender i am loving this team.

greginho said...

right now i am going with

de gea
smalling, stearman, andre santos
taarabt, young, nasri, c herd
dzeko, aguero, roooney

i am really excited about the stearman pick, as i thought that wolves would keep a clean sheet hosting spurs coming to town, before van der vaart was announced as out. now i am even more confident. picking between andre santos and mertesacker is difficult. i will, ultimately pick the wrong one and be forced to barn door the other.

i missed out on 200 points, because i dropped young for van der vaart. since, i brought young back in that means, i will get 200 points, this week, right!!!

My 4 defenders are Larry, Moe, Curley, and Shemp.

Synch said...


Baines is now injured.

Rick said...

What are your thoughts on Nasri this week guys. I think that he had a good debut last week, but I will have to make quite a few changes to fit him in my team.

Anonymous said...

I have Nasri in my revised team

De Gea
Mertesacker/ Santos/ Grygera
Silva/ Nasri/ Walcott/ (Dempsey OR Bale?)
Aguero/ Mata/ Ruiz

What is this about Aguero being unlikely to play the next match?

Louis said...

My team so far is as follows

De Gea
Brown, Santos/Mertersacker, Kompany
Silva, Young, SWP, Benayoun
Aguero, RVP, Hernandez

I really like this team.
What do you think?
