Tactical review: Rooney tunes

Just a mini blog today as there is only one game to look
back on from the weekend.

And it was obviously good news for Wayne Rooney (now a
whopping 24.91) owners as the striker scored all four goals in Manchester
United's thrashing of Hull, collecting a cool
45.5 points in the process.

He now has 19 goals for the season and his value has gone up
by nine in just a few weeks.

Rio Ferdinand duly returned from injury with a 13-point haul
that saw his value shoot from 7.64 to 11.40. Let's
hope you didn't miss the boat there.

Nani (15.44) averages over 10 points per game, and picked up
18.5 on Saturday. The tricky part is knowing when he will be in Fergie's starting XI.

And while Edwin van der Sar's
14 points look impressive, they were still less than his value going into the
weekend (17.90).

Hull's defenders did surprisingly well considering the
scoreline - seven points apiece for Kamil Zayatte (9.33), Anthony Gardner (8.95)
and George Boateng (5.37).

Next week West Ham and Wolves have a double week - you might
want to consider bringing players in now before the midweek matches.

And finally, after the longest registration period in human
history, Maxi Rodriguez is here.

He currently retails at 4.78. You'd
be a fool not to swoop now lest he bags a brace at Wolves tomorrow night.
