Wasn't it half the first team including Matt Targett ditching Jack from their Fantasy Football team?!

yes, someone has set up a bot which automatically monitors fantasy premier league transfers of players/coaching staff/physios etc and publishes to twitter. All that data is public.

the gameweek started early on friday (due to wolves v leeds) hence the breaking rumours about jack around 7 pm-ish.
What is the handle on that twitter account

This isn'y only going to be a Villa thing. I imagine other clubs will be looking at this more closely also.

Seems a little odd that it's allowed. Isn't it ultimately a form of gambling?

Would Jack ever play-in Targett to score instead of the more reliable Watkins just because Targett is in his Fanyasy Football team and would score him more points with a goal? Sounds daft, but why allow the possibility or the real life example of a late injury to our key player being made known unnecessarily?

Leicester clearly didnít believe a word of his injury as they started with 2 right backs.

To be honest, I've always felt that his best position is in the free role anyway, but now with teams effectively finding a way to counter him on the left, I think he should be moved back centrally when he is fit again.

That finishes Barkley if it happens. Also means only one option for the left wing (AEG) really. Trez is horrible out there. Don't think we have the personnel for three CBs either. A diamond in midfield isn't an option without Cash. As much as we would like to see Grealish at 10 more, I don't think it's a runner with the personnel we have.

But we need to be a lot quicker on the sideline than we were v West Ham for example to shift him to the right wing or to a free role if it's an obvious 2 v 1. The opposition will look a bit silly then if they have two players tied up marking AEG or Trez.

I've no qualms about finishing Barkleys time at the club. I do agree about the lack of wide options though. That definitely should be the focus for summer recruitment.

The ever reliable daily star (donít laugh) have an article saying weíve given up trying to keep him and that Man Utd will buy him for £70 million in the summer.

£70 million. Lol

£70m? Which leg does that get them then?

The injured one?

The numbers are more telling. Grealish fouled almost twice as often as Zaha. I knew about McGinn but hadn't noticed Traore in there.

Lots of McGinn's are him being out-muscled but doing enough to make it look as if he's been fouled. If he was an opponent I'd hate him!
