We don't have long before we have to make those final fantasy decisions, so let's get chatting.

It's time to discuss those final changes to both your FPL and Yahoo teams ahead of the deadlines at 11:30am and midday UK time respectively.

My current Yahoo team is ...

Lloris, Piscu, Vertonghen, Shorey, Sterling, Rosicky, Cazorla, Michu, Snodgrass, Suarez, Rooney

... but I am concerned about Wayne Rooney as this article in the Guardian states he's a major doubt: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/dec/14/manchester-united-sir-alex-ferguson-sunderland.

An article in the Telegraph this morning states he has missed 3 days of training due to a virus, but suggests he will play: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/manchester-united/9746388/Manchester-Uniteds-Wayne-Rooney-targets-revenge-mission-against-Sunderland.html

Is there enough doubt to consider dropping him? It's not like Ferguson has a shortage of alternative forward options with Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez both available. I can't afford the Robin van Persie so perhaps it would be sensible to go with Carlos Tevez or Sergio Aguero instead?

My FPL team is locked in:

Tremmel, Clark, Shorey, Shawcross, Fellaini, Michu, Snodgrass, Cazorla, Defoe, Tevez, Suarez (C)

Ok, let's kick this off - how are your teams shaping up?
