Rate My Team: Wildcard Special

Check out my proposed wildcard team going into GW-30.

After a reasonable return in blank GW-29 (accumulating 56 points to reach 7025th overall), I need freshen up for the rest of the season. Except for my Wildcard, my only other remaining chip is bench boost.

I built a team organically for the blank week, bringing in the likes of Tottenham’s Gareth Bale, who disappointed in GW-28 and then failed to even play last time out, leaving me with only eight active players after all. My current options are either playing my wildcard for GW-30, or sticking it out until GW-32.

Current rank: 7025
Squad Value: 97.9 (+8.7 in the Bank)

Here is my current team:

Bale is a player I want to jettison after buying him especially for the blank. I do have good options for GW-30, but I am tempted to wildcard with the below team.

Considerations need to be made for a couple of smaller game-weeks and an impending double or two (each round of the FA Cup screws up a few scheduled league matches for the winners). This is my initial draft, but more tinkering shall be made!

What do you make of my proposed wildcard squad? Would you hold off for another week or pull the trigger now? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments!
