  1. Morning Gents

    Thoughts on this team please:

    Foster – Elliot

    Cedric – McAuley – Tomkins – Yedlin – Mee

    Perdo – KDB – Eriksen – Pogba – RLC

    Firmino – Benteke – Lukaku

    I am worried about ownership of Lukaku thats why he is nailed on in my team. Benteke for me is a gamble as i havent seen anyone pick him but i think he is going to run riot in the 1st couple games.

    1. Great, if you like Benteke then nothing wrong in going with him. Think over Luka then look for other options because ownership is going to change drastically on basis of points scored in first few weeks, buying new and shiny last week top scorers has always been the trend 😉

      1. @Ceri yeah i am thinking about Luka but their 1st 6games are just too good not to have him in. I had 3 United players in my team (Lindelof – Pog – Luka) but i dont want to have more than 2 players from a team in my starting 11. But im still thinking about Pog as well as im not sure how if he is going to sit back or play more of a number 10? But there is so much time for now till kick off that my team is bound to change alot haha

        1. There are about 5-6 options for 2 spots in our front line, i could be wrong but Ibra missed loads of BC’s and still had a decent FF season. Luka would convert a higher percentage and should get more chances for his new team, regarding Pogba its very difficult. He could look great one game ( offensively ) and just pass it around CM next game, there is no Lampard/Gerrard/Ramsey type desire to get in the box on the receiving end of passes. In short if a player doesn’t score points he needs to generate GA/SiB/KP on a regular basis, picking Pogba might need a patient manager to sit back and soak up couple of 2 or 3 pointers.

          1. Yeah i see what you are saying. I have now changed it and i think i prefer this team to the previous one:

            Foster – Elliot

            Cedric – Milner – Lindelof – Tomkins – Yedlin

            Perdo – KDB – Eriksen – Redmond – RLC

            Rooney – Benteke – Lukaku

  4. Watchlist Update

    I’ve worked a bit on the Fixtures scheduling using the in-game figures. No major changes to the rankings that I was able to see compared to the original method, with the ‘Form’ numbers still winning out (as they should).

    For those interested – I’ve run a simplified regression on the fixture strength numbers to goals scored and conceded. I then ratio the fixtures to the average score overall to get a factor, which is then utilised with the form score to get to the Watchlist number.

    Fixtures is thus a score with the average being 1.00. This new method should eliminate the issues from last year about defensive ratings going out of sync with the denominator being too low since now Fixtures are always compared to the same average.

    Also note that the Fixtures score used by the Watchlist will be different to the ones on the ticker.

  5. Great to see so many back on the board already. I’m looking forward to the new season. A couple of questions-

    I’m not seeing a lot of love for Lukaku- why?

    Newcastle- their fixtures are good, there must be some bargains in defence there, who should I be looking at?

      For me it’s Pogba’s value that is keeping Lukaku out of my squad but that all depends on if United sign a holding man. Newcastle wise, I’ve seen a lot of squads with Yedlin in it but i’m a Laschelles fan because of his Forest connections
