Hi everyone, this is a weekly blog post where we document changes to our team based on bookie’s odds. Having done this last season we’d like to think we’ve learned from our mistakes and aim to finish higher than our top 7% finish. This is not a wildcard XI or a team of the best possible players, this is an actual team which we have had since GW1 and have made changes to throughout the season. With the introduction and warning away, no to introduce to you the bookie’s team for Game Week 19. This post will review our changes and reason as to why we brought them in.
Currently, we’re 89,852nd in the world and aim to be in the top 1% by the end of the season. All with the help of the bookies. To view the team, click on the following link: OddsonFPLTeam

We had a corker last week with our team getting a massive 81 points. Our transfer of Paul Pogba in has finally been vindicated with the United midfielder assisting 3 times against poor Cardiff side. With Huddersfield next up United assets are looking valuable over the coming game weeks.
With our side still in good condition and most of our players starting and expected to score highly we’ve decided to move out players who aren’t expected to play much, one due to rotation, Kenedy, and the other due to the Asian Nations cup, Mat Ryan. We considered fixtures when getting rid of Ryan, and Hart rotates well with Fabianksi over the coming weeks. So we’ve brought in Joe Hart for Mat Ryan.
For Kenedy we had 5.2m in the bank and transfers for players in really didn’t look too appealing. With Lovren, Salah, Lacazette all having bad fixtures over the coming weeks, a banked transfer will allow us to consider dropping one of them and Kenedy, whilst giving us a bigger bankroll.
Our single transfer Hart is benched, but should come in when Fabianski meets Arsenal in 4 weeks time.
Our captain is Salah, I fear he won’t start, but Kane is an able deputy. Yes that was a pun, so what? We still have 2 transfers available next week. Good luck as always and merry Christmas.
