    Thanks Paul. Good article and sound reasoning behind your transfer ideas / hold selections. I agree with Gallagher – he was a shout out by Carl in the pre-season podcast. I had in my draft squad then let him go…typical! All the best for this game week mate. I’ve already swapped to Chelski / City (Lukaku, Rudiger, James etc)..hoping it yields rewards for my teams. Who is Marcal by the way? I’ve seen his name mentioned a few times.

    Thanks mate, and same to you for the week ahead. Marcal plays full back for Wolves, very nice run of fixtures for them now, cheap, and allows upgrades elsewhere when required. If any injuries elsewhere in my team I’ll
    consider a downgrade to him to free up cash. Gallagher always came up on my Sky analysis when at West Brom for his tackling bonus potential, and now he’s added goals and assists he looks like a steal.

    Cheers mate. I’m 40’ish points behind you with my teams, though just made a few transfers that hopefully set me up for the next few gameweeks. If I can stay just the same point difference to you it means I will be going well I reckon. Gone for big at the back and solid goal scorer up front, with balanced midfields in each of my teams. Let’s see what happens eh. Cheers for your article and swift reply.

    Hi great article. What are your thoughts on having the big four in a team: Salah, Kane, Ronaldo and Lukaku?

    Right now my team is Sanchez, Christensen, James, Marcel, Dawson, Salah, Gallagher, Raphinha, Kane, Ronaldo and Lukaku. See big four as season keepers and rotate the rest around them. Rank: 1.3k. 31 Transfers left.

    Thanks! I think it’s definitely workable if your other midfield options are budget tackle-bonus enablers. I would slow down on the transfers now though.

    Another question if I may. What is your favourite formation and least favourite? Mine used to be 343 but play nowadays with 433 or 451. Is the 343 formation dead in the water now after being one of the most popular years ago?
