    I’ve had Zorko and Crouch for a while now and am happy about it!
    Who out of Hunter or Pendles are must-have by the end of the year? Recent weeks suggested Hunter, now I’m not so sure. And is Whitfield a must-have?

      whitfield is a must have, but you can always wait a week or two if you have higher priorities. I’d go hunter for the long run.

    I have 900k to spend on a midfielder, I could go Touk, but that takes away a fair bit of cash to put into getting rookies off my field, any suggestions? tossing up between Lyons, Bont, Wines, Steele

    • Aby Benny

      June 21, 2021 at 7:25 pm

      out of those I’d go lyons or wines with their run home (I’d go lyons out of those two), but touks a great option as well. out of these 3, I’d go lyons.
