“It’s my first time playing but so far, I think Aubameyang is the real deal. Consistent.. plays every week .never injured,” said Onori.
Who will be this season’s bolters?
OE : I think Chelsea could be this season’s bolters. I was really excited about their signings some world-class talent. But after watching their game yesterday was a little bit disappointed. They might need this season before they gel into anything cohesive…I think they’ll finish 4th..which would be disappointing.
Which big club players to go for?
OE :The African Trio…Salah, Mane, Aubameyang.
Which games to target?
OE: N/A (I suppose all the games, I’m still new to this)
OE: My bench isn’t quite as strong as I’d like…I ran out of cash. Lol
Tip on Injury News?
OE: All my players are fully fit…thank you very much. I tried to stay away from players with a record. I love Aguero but for that reason, he didn’t make my team. Also, I think Harry Kane was rushed back and might get injured this season.
When to cash in your ‘chips’?
OE: I’m not sure how to cash in my chips just yet, but I’m thoroughly enjoying the ride…so no time soon.
You’re a ManCity Fan, your captain and vice-captain are Aubameyang and Salah, why these choices?
OE: I think Aubameyang and Salah will give me consistent points. I’m also not sure of Mancity this season and I’d rather not lose at 2 ends.
