I personally would swap out your substitutes for very cheap players to maximise the value of your XI but I guess that's a tactical thing.Found it quite useful talking tactics in the old thread on TFF last season, so if anyone is willing to share their team go ahead and do it. I'm much more bothered about the leagues I have a bit of money riding on. Opinions on mine welcome.
Hopeful that Courtois, Henderson, Hazard and Rooney will be season long inclusions. I have £5M in the bank right now and I'll be shipping Pelle out for Aguero as soon as he's ready. Up until today I had the following lineup...
Subs: McCarthy, Huth, Francis, Sakho
Had to ship the ones in bold out for cheaper options as the aforementioned Aguero plan was gonna cost at least 3 transfers with the above team. Clyne for O'Shea (£5.5M to £4.5M), Koscielny for Bellerin (£6M to £5.5M) and Mane for Mahrez (£8M to £5.5M). Will probably try and get Clyne back in later on in the season, however Sunderland have the best opening fixtures going as opposed to Liverpool who open away at a team that smashed them at the end of last season and go away to The Emirates and Old Trafford in their first five. Would rather have Koscielny in than Bellerin but I needed to squeeze that extra bit out, hopefully Debuchy won't start getting used. Obviously, Mane to Mahrez is a massive drop but again necessary as I really want to be able to bring Ageuro in in a single transfer. Leicester have good opening fixtures though and I think Mahrez will be getting played in the hole behind their striker(s). If any of their lot are reading this and could confirm that would be cool. Also, how likely is an opening day Huth start? If I can figure that out and figure out who will play in goal for Palace (I'm thinking Hennessey will get the nod), then I'm considering playing my bench boost in GW1. Will be looking at switching Sinclair/Mahrez out for Sakho in GWs 2 and 3. Just don't fancy Sakho at Arsenal.
Opinions on £5.5M midfield options, too? Who is the best? Couldn't decide between Ki and Mahrez. Considered Brady too.
