          1. I am very reluctantly coming to the same conclusion. πŸ™

            I really wanted Ileanacho, but that’s all over now. Zabaleta is fine, but a sticking plaster, until we see what he does with Byram.

            We need to see Cresswell back to his best.

          2. I think I would have liked Iheanacho as a hammer. Would have fitted him.

            Lack of direction would be a concern to me.

  2. Last season was the worst and the best at the same time. Trip to the Manchester Derby was “nice” consolation prize at start of the season as I managed to lose my workplace’s league for the first time..

    Anyways first draft for the coming season..

    Forster Elliot
    Dawson Taylor Naughton Francis Cedric
    Sanchez Coutingo Pogba Gundogan Loftus-Cheek
    Lukaku Lacazette Austin

    Obviously signings and pre-season will have an effect. If Sanchez stays my gut feeling says that he and Lacazette are “must”. Same for Lukaku and Pogba combo, but depending on DM signing. SoHo’s early fixtures are something that cannot be ignored.

    1. that looks like a very nice team to me! however i wouldn’t personally go for lacazette yet as he’s a newcomer blah blah.. don’t get me wrong he should do very well but i always stay on the side of caution at the very start πŸ™‚

    2. Not worried about being reliant on only three teams for your high value players?

      It looks a strong team but on a GW where Man U and Arsenal blank you’ll be struggling. That being said I’m very tempted by a Pogba and Lukaku double up should they bring in Matic but not a fan of not covering other top teams attacks as well.

      1. Yeah, going for only 3 teams is risky, but it is a risk I am willing to take if pre-season goes well.

        Also Lacazette depends on pre-season and Sanchez factor.

  3. Hello all!

    Haven’t played for ages due to starting university last year and getting distracted but I’m reading to win my league again this year!

    My first draft currently is

    Foster – speroni
    Cedric – tomkins – lindelof – naughton – francis
    De bruyne – Fabregas – Ali – Tadic – Ruben L-C
    lusaka-kane- rodriguez

    De bruyne i had to pick after realising he got 21 assists last season and i think city are going to improve on their performances from last year. fabregas will probably leave my draft shortly as i do know how unlikely it is for him to be a starter but again i looked at his stats and he got 15 assists in only 1500 minutes last year, Amazing!

    all thoughts welcome πŸ™‚

    2. Nice team. I’d like a Liverpool player in there and I prefer kun to Kaku. Can’t have it all

      That’s good discipline.. I don’t think I’d be able to take a year off the game haha

      1. Benitez reported to be content to see Darlow go (Middlesbrough interested – though have just had Β£5m bid rejected)
        However he is also looking to sign another ‘keeper – Pepe Reina rumoured to be his preferred target.
        But, until then, it does sound as if Elliot is first choice.
