Last match of the game-week tonight - desperately hoping Captain Lukaku gets a few more minutes on the pitch. I've a feeling Chelsea are going to be as much of a rotation nightmare as City this year.
My captain is Mata. Desperately hoping he will be warming the bench for the entire game since Hazard is my vice captain. Chelsea will definitely be a rotation nightmare this year, especially midfield and strikers.
And my captain is Hazard. I agree rotation looks like being a problem at all the big clubs.
I feel confident in my season now that I know MoK and I captained the same striker on week one.
The leader (at this moment) of our league, EVReds, captained Ivanovic. Genius! Together with Cech and ACole the safest starter in Chelsea. I've got Benteke, so hoping for 2-2 tonight with braces from Hazard and Benteke. Ivanovic to get a red card please. Then on to round 2.
Ouch! My captain Mata came on to make my choice of captain a waste. No goal by Hazard. No luck at all. Except Benteke of course, very glad I picked him for my team or the first week could have been a complete disaster. This is going to be a long hard season....
Two Chelsea games and Lukaku has played >40 minutes. Time for an FT. Doesn't have Mou's confidence. Should've stayed at WestBrom another year like Coutois at Atletico.
I disagree. Mou is trying to ease Lukaku into a starting spot. He has played in both games so far and looked dangerous. He will play a lot this year in increasing amounts and is the future of Chelsea so he should be with Chelsea now.
Courtois is a different situation. There is no keeper rotation policy at Chelsea, other than giving backups some minutes in League Cup games. Courtois can only be assured of first team play at Athletico.
I worry that Chelsea will lose Courtois before Cech is ready to move on. Cech has another 10 years left in him, and most or all of that will be with Chelsea. It would be great if they could keep Courtois under contract and loan him out to whatever club he wants to be at, until it is his time. I just can't see that happening though.
The trouble is FPL does not wait for Mou and with MU and a blank week ahead it would not be sensible to hold on to Lukaku until he is first choice.
My dilemma is at the back and also whether to continue with a team without Van Persie.
I am so bad at this. I have no excuses.
Just my luck I transferred in K Toure yesterday morning.
Thank heavens for defenders and goalkeepers the forwards and midfielders aren't earning their keep this year.
Anyone else wildcarding ahead of next weekend?
Have never wildcarded before. What does it entail?
Very happy that Lukaku was snapped up by Everton. Won't have to transfer him out in the near future. Also swapped Adam Johnson for Özil.
Bringing a little of my madrista to the EPL.
