32ndEpi – GW6 – Kevin De B******!

Thirty second episode of the Fantasy Football Surgery Podcast, another game week and another weekend of twists and turns in the Barclays Premier League, although one club remaining on the straight and narrow is the sky blue half of Manchester. KDB has been the delight of many FPL managers but the torment of others in the absence of the soon to return Kun Aguero. Which surgeons gambled to profitable effect on the mercurial Belgium, is he worth putting in arguably 3 weeks too late and finally can he be accommodated with Kun?

Do you go for Kevin De Bruyne or Sergio Kun Aguero? Or both?

The return of Woodsy brings with it the usual shenanigans and some obscure picks…but has he called a gem this week?! Stats, facts, form and even a little history to boot!

 

The pod welcomes back community regular and common sense talking Tom Campbell- a rarity for the Beard absent surgeons! As discussion turns to the defensive crisis in FPL this season TC makes some fine shouts with Everton strongly in mind.

 

The differentials is shaken up with the briefly improving Bully finding himself carrying the weight of the surgeons. Has the Iceman’s stat analysis paid off?

 

Captains choice appears unanimous as one may guess given the a certain returning front man but not with lout a few differential ideas thrown in for good measure- will you dare gamble against Kun?!

 

We answer your twitter questions as Woodsy brings back news of his social media travels and an idea for a memoir based spin off!

 

Got an hour to kill? Commuting to work? Lost without a clue who to pick in your side this weekend? We’ve got you covered in this week’s surgery!

31stEpi – GW5 – #backinyourbox

Thirty first episode of the Fantasy Football Surgery Podcast, the surgeons are joined by trainee Rhys once more from his travels down under, providing a worthy stand in for the absent Beard and West Ham biased Woodsy. The post wildcard fall out dominates early discussion with a mixture of financially astute and appallingly managed selections. The golden rule here? Let’s just say the 11.30am transfer deadline on a Saturday becomes a real theme!

 

Panels picks throws up an old argument debated by FPL managers since his arrival in the BPL. Lukaku, brilliant at Sunderland but the ever hanging doubt over his consistency makes the surgeons ponder jumping on the bandwagon. Deadly Diego Costa is also scrutinised as one of the surgeons struggles to tolerate the uncertainty of his temper!

 

The differential league continues with some great returns for one manager. Stand in Rhys is condemned to his box although offers an interesting alternative to the other panelists!

 

Captains choice is not as obvious as you may think. Perhaps the most options and dilemmas since the birth of the pod? Who will you select as captain and do you agree with any of our surgeons? Tweet us @ff_surgery and share your views!

 

Speaking of Twitter, the Iceman takes us through your questions where Tottenham feature heavily. A return to form offensively and defensively against Stoke has us discussing corner king Harry Kane, the mercurial Deli Ali and the consistent Eriksen.

 

No quiz for you this week in the absence of the regulars but plenty to fill your boots and team selection in this week’s Fantasy Football Surgery Podcast!
