(TT)vaches de chier
Dimitar Berbatov (@ARS, MID)
For Saha, Defoe, Bent, Keane, Camara. Belatedly starts scoring.
Phooey. Should've stuck with Saha and Angel.
Kevin Doyle (BOL, @NUF)
For Angel. A literary revelation.
Scores as expected.
Benni McCarthy (FUL, @CHA)
For Hulse. Good matchups.
Missed a sitter.
David Bentley (FUL, @CHA)
For Pedersen. In good form.
Can do better.
Andy Reid (@SHE, BLA)
For Barry. On form.
Aaron Lennon (@ARS, MID)
For Gerrard. Can run riot.
Lee McCulloch (LIV, @WHU)
For Ronaldo, Malbranque. Will feed Camara and Heskey.
Vast improvement, but still a damp squib.
Nicky Shorey (BOL, @NUF)
For Cahill. Good crosser.
Paul Scharner (LIV, @WHU)
Must shoot more often.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto (@ARS, MID)
For Chimbonda, Young, Baines. Speedy fullback.
Chris Kirkland (LIV, @WHU)
For Reina, Friedel, Carson. Cheaper option.
If I'd gotten Friedel I'd have 23 more points.
Total points: 114.0
Predicted points: 148.2
