Gut feelings

I am still kicking myself for dropping Aguero. Not so much for letting him go but for Grant Holt?

This is the time of the season where discounts become devalued and past experience along with"gut feelings" takes us to the finish line. Now, the decision listed above is a good example of over reaching in my opinion. I held Aguero at 11 for many weeks, through rest time & rotation time and to be honest, the reward was minimal yet he remains an in form player on a top tier team. Now, the Holt decision could have gone very much in my favor and Aguero does have a poor run of fixtures ahead, so the "gut feeling" takes over, in comes Holt.

Where I believe I failed was not following a simple format I laid out for myself at the beginning of the season which is...

A discount is only something to consider (IF) the player is held at a 3 point or higher advantage and only drop in form players for other in form players plus stay away from the "one & done" pick ups. Simple I know, but I have held myself to it for most of the season. Dropping Aguero was a sound decision (for my team) BUT...Holt was not in great form and he was a "one & done" on my team. An Aguero for a Ba, or to acquire a Rooney or RVP would have set easier with me and would have stay more true to form with my system.

My warning is..go with your gut as it is the best way to play the game. Just don't throw the baby out with the bath water when following it.
