Part of me says, stop right there. Don't look again. Don't, whatever the inclination, Friday trade! But let's be honest... that's inevitable. Stupid, but inevitable. Looking at the team, what jumps out at me is:
- Two Hammers facing Manchester United. Yes, WHU are playing better and ManU struggle a bit on the road. But do I really want both Ba and Hitzlsperger? They're both at cost so they could be moved out for the weekend and brought back for the upcoming games against Bolton and Aston Villa without penalty.
- Osman. What to do with Osman? He was a GREAT pickup over Everton's recent double-game week and was ok last game week against Fulham. Everton have a good run of fixtures upcoming and it might be worth keeping him. But it sure isn't a sexy pick.
- There are injury doubts over van Persie (could be back), Walker (should be back), and Adam (expected to be back). Obviously all signs are good at this point, but the uncertainty is starting to make me nervous.
Clearly there is much to discuss over the next two days, but that's where I am right now. You?
