Transfer Tuesday. Transfer Tuesday. So if you’re new to the Razzball Fantasy EPL party, well technically we all are, Tuesdays going forward will be commingled garbage day covering Transfers and the upcoming week’s schedule. That firstline is kinda ringing in my ear like I have Tinnitus. So grab your portable device find your favorite porcelain seat, and enjoy the transfer targets for the upcoming Week 9 of fantasy EPL. I am giving you all a look at who looks good, at the price they are, who is a bargain, and who is showing good form to grab on the cheap. Pinching pennies is all the rave nowadays. My grandma has one, and she is about as hip as Huey Lewis and the News. So enjoy my view from the weekly transfer window, or don’t. Please don’t throw rocks though, they hurt more than Tinnitus.
Ross Barkley, EVE – (£6.7) – Back from injury and got 65 minutes in his year debut. Will build on that and look to get involved with Naismith and Lukaku up front. An assist seems like a given and his value is as low as it’s going to be if he can stay fit.
Gabriel Obertan, NEW – (£4.4) – Bargain shopping in the French isle. Sacre bleu. Seems to be finding a niche in the Newcastle attack. Back to Back 90 minute affairs and a mark in each of the last 2. Things may be looking slightly up for the Magpies, I mean they can’t get much lower. Buy cheap save your coupons. A midfield of Fabergas, Tadic, Obertan, Sterling and Sigurdson only costs you £37.3. Just saying.
Morgan Schneiderlin, SOU – (£5.9) – I am not going to lie I love gamers, gamers that play every single minute of every game so far this year. You hear that Morgan! The Saints are flying way high right now and come off a dismantling off Sunderland that saw them bulge the net 8 times. This week they get a mid-tabled Stoke at St. Mary’s where the Saints have only conceded one goal in 4 matches.
Steven Naismith, EVE – (£5.2) – Everton looks to get fat off a stumbling Burnley on the road at Turf Moor. Burnley has allowed 6 goals at home in 4 matches and is winless in the land of the Bee. If Everton pairs Naismith with Lukaku that’s a fantastic thing for you as he attracts extra attention. Look for Naismith on the cheap to pair with a monster in Costa or Aguero.
Mohamed Diamé, HUL – (£5.4) – 35 points over his last 5 matches and while I don’t love the match-up at Liverpool this week, you have to surround your Dream Teamers with some value. Diame raises hand says I am a value. Teammates later explain that it’s not a good thing to be that. That’s Mo just being Mo.
Cesc Fàbregas, CHE – (£9.6) – My best advice is he isn’t going to get any cheaper as he settles into Jose’s system. I am not looking at the tough matchup vs. United this upcoming week, look beyond that. I am a man of the people, so here to help you out. Think Big brother/Big sisters but with boots and a stellar alternate kit.
Dušan Tadić, SOU – (£7.6) – Can’t afford the lad an inch and 7/8 above then look no further than the man in the middle for the Saints. Tadic is tied for the lead in assists in the EPL with 7, with guess who, Cesc. He is 2 pounds cheaper and has a better opponent for which to pad his stats. Load up on Southampton and Everton this week.
Leighton Baines, EVE – (£7.1) – Only stat you need to know to convince you is that Baines plays Burnley, them and the 4 goals scored all week. Expect a shutout and pout scream and blame rainbows if they don’t. Rainbows!
Filipe Luís, CHE – (£5.4) – In for the suspended Azpilicueta, who is looking at a 2 game minimum suspension, Is a decent value as a fill-in for the week, kinda like buying whatever toilet paper is on sale, because at the end of it all its still wiping your bum.
Brad Guzan, TOT – (£4.6) – He gets the cellar dwelling QPR who struggle to get goals and aren’t the fittest, and in some cases neither and you just get called “Three stones over-weight”. Cheers Taarabt, that Cous Coush is a heavy heavy grain my man. Turnoil and butting of heads never leads to goals. Bet on the American to throw up a potential goose-egg.
