That does it for another Ins, Outs, Doubts, and Wins column for Week 9! I hope all this information will help finalize your teams for the coming week!

My team as it stands looks like: Courtois, PvA, Bertrand, Cresswell, Fabregas, Tadic, Sterling, Sigurdsson, Costa, Bony, Pelle w/ a bench of Di Maria, Kelly, Moore, Gazz. I have 6.92mil to play around with so I am considering dropping the likes of Moore for Moreno and moving Cresswell to the bench. However, my back 3 have been racking up such good phantom points regardless of match up (+9 for PvA in a 8-0 loss) I am tempted to keep them all for the forseable future. There is the added bonus of clubs going against the big boys, such as West Ham v City, as defeners will have much more of an opportunity for BS and Tackles. However there is the added risk of FC and YC´s, but I am fairly willing to take that risk. I am missing Arsenal coverage, which is a bit concerning after Sunderland collapsed against SOT, but I feel Sunderland will prove a much tougher opponent than last week. Here´s to hoping any way!

Good luck!
