Its been a wait for the fantasy world but finally the weekend is arriving and our brains slowly start to phase out to the world of permutations and combinations to get the perfect team setup before we hit the saturday deadline. There has been alot of action during the "fantasy" break with most teams having played a round of FA cup and the first round of knock-outs in europe. Alot new information to decipher so lets get on with it.
The matches this weekend are very inviting with alot of editions of big names vs small ones like Man City vs Blackburn, Newcastle vs Wolves, Norwich vs Manchester United and just for the sake of it Chelsea vs Bolton.
Forwards: Aguero(This is the prime matchup. The must have in your team for the week, Dont make a lineup without him in it.), The City striker on bench in Europa, Ba( The next best thing after Aguero and the best option would be to have them both) P.Cisse(For those who would prefer to spread the money and still have a bite of the Wolves, mind you on paper a smaller bite than BAite), Rooney(Good value if held on discount). Sturridge/Mata(One of those chelsea forwards is likely to score ie if chelsea score because now a days thats only how they score.)
Midfielders: Silva(He's been off the pedal for a while but now is the matchup that can bring the best out of anyone one, let alone a good fantasy player). Yaya( A cheap option to have from the city middies), Ashley Young(He's so well priced at below 13 it would be foolish not to consider him), Essien( He's available at 4.55 but AVB is on crack so be careful)
Defender: Any City Defender( All are expensive but have a very strong chance of a clean sheet), Santon( Decent value at under 7 and can be creative at the left back for Nufc), Ivanovic (Available at 7ish and a sure starter even though AVB is on crack).
Keepers: Krul(He's going to be on the positive as he plays home), Cech(Go with him if you believe in "its about time" otherwise be Krul).
Rest Of The Lot:
Zamora: Playing against his old club. Like that has ever happened.
Crouch: Good matchup, and generally shows up after a couple of matches.
Siggy: Stick with him or pick him only 2 options
Taarabt: Hughes has him humming beautiful football. He'll score in the next 2.
Sess: Good price good matchup great form.
Taiwo: A good producer even without the cs points
Vermaelen: Look for him to shift back to his favoured position as a Cb. If he does he could do well against any matchup.
Bassong: A good filler who would play.
Kenny: Good option and decent matchup and unbelievable price and...thats about it.
Sorensen: Good option and decent matchup and unbelievable price and....yup...thats about it.
K guys. That about wraps it up.
Enjoy the weekend and score big!
