Alright I haven't done this before but alot of other blogs do the whole 'team of the week' thing and I thought it might be fun given that my actual team is pretty boring right now (Drogba, Malouda, Berbatov, Nani and maybe Bale are all locks to stay for now). The team has to fit in with the standard rules and my budget is whatever I can afford with my current squad (currently 103.3m). Without further ado then, here are my picks for this week:
MD R.Van der Vaat
FW D.Drogba (c)
I'm pretty happy with my first stab at a team of the week and the strategy is clearly to take advantage of value spot starters in defense to free up cash for a top line front line and midfield. Still, all my starting defenders rank in the top 5 in my clean sheet rankings but only cost a combined 18.2m. That allows me to keep the undroppable Malouda and Nani combo in midfield all the while pairing them with a couple of top players with decent fixtures: Van der Vaat and Milner. This week the front line almost picks itself as Drogba and Torres have great fixtures while Odenwingie is too good to pass up at his price tag.
Fancy your chances of beating me? Post your team below and I will review the results after the GW ends.
