For those of you with Ronaldo in your team - that's a quarter of you - the weekly question is whether anyone should take the armband from your premium midfielder. Since I bought him in week 7 I have captained Ronaldo every week and he has had 2 poor weeks, 2 good weeks and 2 monster weeks, averaging 8.33 points over that 6 game stretch.
Last week was a stupid move captaining him against Arsenal rather than Lampard against Blackburn, and I am now cautious about captaining him again this week.
I know I know, Stoke have shipped 10 in 6 on the road, and 19 in total, and I know that Ronaldo has now scored in his last 10 domestic home games, but my question is whether he will play.
Looking back to last year is encouraging as Ronaldo featured in 34 league games, and of the 4 he missed, three were due to suspension. However, with his injury over the summer potentially still lingering, will Ferguson be tempted to drop his leading man?
On the other hand, you can be almost certain that Lampard will play, earn a point for the clean sheet and get a couple of bonus points, so as captain he all but guarantees you 10 points.
So what would you guys do? Are you going to captain Ronaldo this week? Let me know your thoughts
