    In two minds whether to take a hit to get Jiminez in and finally abandon the Greenwood experiment

    What's the additional transfer you must make to do the Greenwood to Jiménez transfer?
    Or have you made a transfer already?

    I only had one free transfer and used it to get Mount in, I have 3.2 in the bank so could upgrade to a three striker attack, plus Jiminez has had a two week rest, Southampton at home is a good fixture

    I'd be tempted to make that move, unless you can field a decent starting eleven with two strikers and Greenwood on the bench.

    Have you taken many hits so far this season?

    Only taken one hit all season though last time I checked my squad had four potential injured players. May leave it to the last minute, though going to listen to Football Scout shortly to see if there is any team news

    Same here, one hit so far. I should probably have taken one more hit somewhere in the last few gameweeks though, and got Abraham earlier. That might even have saved me from spending the wildcard now! It's a difficult balance how many hits you should and should not take, I feel.

    I'd definitely wait for team news before taking that hit. If you have four potential injuries, one of those players might be more important to potentially transfer out. If all are fit to play, then maybe the Greenwood transfer will be worth to look at.

    That one hit was unnecessary for me though that's with hindsight, I have had good points on the bench wasted because of a few transfers. A few times I have missed out on Kelly points for example.

    I could wait for Jiminez though that Southampton fixture is tempting me, if I made no hit transfer I may be better off assuming my squad is in better shape at kick off

    I agree, at home to Southampton is a tempting fixture. I think the only way to decide if the transfer is worth it, is by predicting how many points you can see Jiménez getting from that fixture. If you predict him to get six points for example, then it might not be worth it. Example:

    - Jiménez 6 points - 4 points for the hit = 2 points.
    - Saving transfer and the player you play instead of Greenwood scores two points = 2 points and a slightly better overall rank because of less transfers made.

    Just checked my team 3 players still a doubt, yeah taking a hit you want a haul to cover it. Salah still a doubt is concerning me
    P. S. I am past caring about my team we are crap, Ole out

    Salah the only player in my squad a doubt now so not taking a hit, Norwich have quite a few returning players so there may be a contest at Bournemouth I am tempted to play Pukki and Cantwell, Cantwell may play as a number 10

    Typical. Anyway, I'm on Mané in my current wildcard draft, and its likely to stay that way unless there's some rumours/late developments.

    Son rested to be honest I knew it may happen, I almost took a hit for KDB though I am proving to be tight with hits so far this season. Hopefully Son will get game time and score against a leaky Watford
