  1. So if Sunderland and City win tonight, will anyone be playing for anything this weekend?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Liverpool and Man City.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. This

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Suarez will!

      And anyone looking for a transfer this summer..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Spurs and Man City playing to get out of the Europa League also.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Utd*

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. haha this! both will try to loose their last match..

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Maybe Spurs. Can't see United happy without European football.

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. Load up on Villa and Soton players then!

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. Only those trying to make the last few spots for the Wc (Ramsey / Caroll and the likes)

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. If Ramsey WAS English, he'd be an absolute shoe in for the WC squad.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. This!

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  2. Oh of course. :)

    Wish my rival didn't have SAS, it's really limiting my transfer options.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. SASAS*

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Dafuq

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Sterling

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Is this a real thing?

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
            1. Not as such, just an expansion of the generally accepted SAS.

              • 1 year, 3 months ago
            2. The Triple S Boom Blasters.

              • 1 year, 3 months ago
  3. Just thinking ahead. Assuming that Dzeko plays tonight, is he a nailed on starter for Sunday regardless of Aguero's fitness?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Can't really say. Will surely depend on Aguero's fitness and his performance tonight?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Not nailed on but I'd fancy his chances.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Agree with this, he's on some form, and why rotate now - surely Pelle will just want to get it signed, sealed and delivered.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Dzeko is nailed has been for yonks now.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. great use of Yonks"

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. Thanks, I like the majority view!

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. I wouldn't say nailed, but I'd fancy him to start. However, I think I'll go for Sturridge instead.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  4. One decision which will tough for me for next gameweek would be Whether to start Mannone or Speroni for the last gw...CP play Fulham at their last home game in PL...so might not get a CS..whereas Mannone play Swans who look like they would score goals!

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Would be Speroni for me.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. hmm..still not convinced on either..

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Fulham are shit regardless of what game it is. Gotta be Speroni.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Last home game in PL (at least for a season) in front of their home fans..emotions would be high and they would like to finish on a good note to thank their fans!

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Or they are just desperate. Cue 0:0.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. hmm quite possible!

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
        2. They would also liked to have not been relegated, but they were. You can't just stop being shit because of emotions. That's how I see it anyway 😀

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. haha true!

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
  5. Here's an idea.

    Cash restraints mean I can't do:

    Aguero & Ramsey > Studge & Hazard.

    I can do: Aguero & Mata > Studge & Hazard + Kolarov > Coleman...means playing Januzaj surely as risky as holding Mata?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Since Giggs in charge United played Young, Nani, Valencia and Januzaj in the wings...Valenica and Januzaj looked the best! ! so he should get a start in the next game..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. No no no no no

      Will Coleman play? Will Hazard play? Who knows?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Why would Coleman not play?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Nothing to play for

          Give the reserves a run-out

          Not a bad opportunutiy

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  6. Van Gaal to United is a done deal according to talksport...

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Talksport *sigh*

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. I'm not a massive fan either but they've been quite decent in the past on transfer stuff.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. and Messi to City is a done deal according to Faking News..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Ok :-)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. RVP is the lone striker now then. According to sense

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. If he has any sense he will sell Rooney.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Unsellable with that wage.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. No, that's the wrong way of putting it. Selling him isn't the problem, the problem is getting someone to buy him with those wages...

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  7. How does this look for a 4 pointer?

    Rooney & Mata/Ramsey -> Adebayor & Hazard

    Guy I'm chasing has Sturridge so no point going that direction..

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Hazard can be any midfielder aside from a City player..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. I'd say..Remy/Bony/Lambert are better picks than Adebayor...Willian now looks better than Hazard..but Hazard is Hazard..some people also going about the theory of Lukaku going score many goals in the last game..

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Why what's wrong with Adebayor? I fancy a few goals in that game and he always pops up every now and again with a brace.

        I was thinking of Schurrle as well!

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Tottenham would want to loose this match and will hope United wins so that they don't qualify for the Europa...

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  8. Assuming that he will play his last game at United, how likely are Ferdinand's chances of starting the game in GW38?
    My other defenders are Kompany, Zabaleta, Shaw and Bardsley. And since I have a cup final, I don't want to take any hits.
    Ta.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. don't bother getting a United player..that is what I would Recommend

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. You really got no forwards transfers to make?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. I've to sell Rooney 😛

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. What's wrong with those defenders?

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. +1000. Best defense I've seen on here for GW38.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. But.
        Bardsley won't play. Shaw faces United. Who should I keep my 3rd defender as?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. KZS imo.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  9. Can a team turn down the Europa League even if they qualify for it?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. I think UEFA would come down hard on them if they did

      But I guess not or you could theoretically "pass" on it if the team below you wanted it

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Dunno, but they should be able to. Though I don't see why they would/should.

      It could be Man Utd or Spurs best chance of getting into the Champion's League.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. How so?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Winner gets a CL spot for 2015/16

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
        2. Europa league winner goes into the Champion's League.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. Thx. Didn't know that! A tiny, little bit ashamed of myself now.

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. It would never happen in a million years, but I don't see any reason why it's not possible technically.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. I dont see the point of the Europa League, It seems like it is a Your-ok-but-not-that-good-cup-for-5th to 7th-place-loosers League

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Just like those who finish 2nd-4th aren't really Champions...

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. True but anyone of 1-4 could have won the league up until the last few weeks. where as 5-7 is like coming second at the olympics. A silver medal is nice and a good effort but no one remembers your name 5 minutes later

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. couldve but didnt. you also seem to forget that the europa league is also made up of teams who failed to progress in the CL who just so happen to be teams who finished in the top four of their leagues & are usually the ones that progress ot the end like benfica, juventus, althetic madrid etc

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. The old Uefa cup was much better, but then the Champions League was made up of "Champions" so the Uefa cup had all the up and coming second and third placed teams (originally)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Ah ok, that makes more sense then.

          I guess I feel like their are too many different cups and question the validity of them.

          I can see the point of the Champions League Trophy and the Premiership Trophy for each of the leagues in Europe and even the FA cup in England and similar formats in the European leagues if they have it. But beyond that... whats next? Everyone gets a trophy day

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
      3. It's a trophy, a European one at that. It's the whole point of sport to win these

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Against second tier competition, where is the satisfaction?

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. well if that is your view then u would have to accept that teams like Man Utd and Tottenham are 2nd tier clubs.

            The EL quarters had Juvenus, Benfica, Sevilla & Valencia. 2 giants of the European game and another with 2 recent(ish) CL finals to their name.

            Most clubs take it seriously. More fool the English ones that don't

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
            1. For this season they are, if they were better they would have finished higher.

              I don't have a hat in this discussion as my team (Forest) have not even won a raffle in years.

              I guess how I was brought up playing sport and how sport is played in my country is where I am coming from. Where there is only one champion, and the next year is to try harder .

              • 1 year, 3 months ago
              1. The Uefa Cup was never thought of as a second tier competition. Just a shame that by ruining the CL (by not just including champions) they have soured the EL for some.

                • 1 year, 3 months ago
                1. I can see that

                  • 1 year, 3 months ago
  10. Annoying that Utd won last night.

    It means them and Spurs will both play silly buggers on Sunday

    I was counting on Spurs v Villa as a good fixture

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. I would imagine both managers have been told to get Europa League Qualification as it is an extra stream of revenue for the club. Remember boards don't think the same way as fans.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Yea agree , I really think Ade / Erik will do well this week and are nailed.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. I agree with them as both are not in the WC

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. But that revenue stream could affect next years revenue stream. (See Liverpool for details. No Europa means better chance of UCL next season) then see Spurs

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. Top clubs like Man United can compete on both fronts as they have proven over the years. In recent years Spurs have also shown that they can compete in Europe and still do well in the league.

          I am not refuting your claim that it can be an advantage not playing in Europe when you are going for domestic success but I don't think that is how the board looks at it. One would imagine the board think how much money does this bring us? They will also be worrying about the impact no European football would have on their transfer activities.

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. BUT Spurs were doing much better, then the Europa took it's toll and now they are in the Europa again

            The difference between Europa league and CL in terms of cash isn't even close

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
            1. The money you make from doing well in Europa League is not as poxy as you think.

              http://swissramble.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/uefa-prize-money-rhapsody-in-blue.html

              • 1 year, 3 months ago
  11. So GW 38....

    3 City
    2/3 Liverpool

    Who else?
    I'd like to think Southampton will beat Utd, but with Lallana and Shaw seeing JRod miss the WC I think they may play well within themselves

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Shaw wouldn't anyway have to play a part in the WC, you don't often need your 3rd choice leftback to be called into action.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Maybe third may be second?

        Actually I suppose in his case he needs to play his way INTO the team

        Lovren Lallana Lambert Ramirez are all WC cbound

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Everton to beat hull , Lukaku / Baines / Coleman.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Everton are 5th and can't move

        Hopefully they play a full team, but who knows?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  12. Plenty probably already have one eye on next season already, but just wondering for all you FPL veterans out there, what's your ideal value spread across the different positions in terms of percentages? eg GK 9%, DEF 25%, MID 35%, FWD 30% etc

    and quick fire answers to the following:

    A) 2 4.5 rotating keepers, 1 4.5/5.0 keeper + 4.0, premium keeper + 4.0
    B) How many premium defenders you intend to have?
    C) how many premium and mid priced mids is ideal?

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. thats 99%
      i expect you to give 100% or you wont play

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. The %1 is 1 million in the bank for transfers 😉

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
      2. 😆 knew some smartass would add it up...

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. i am taking smartass as a compliment

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. as intended 😀

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. No ideal spread to be honest. It depends where the bargains lie

      A)IF there are two decent rotating keepers then it's a decent plan, but if not then it changes things
      B)Depends on price. Chelsea/Arsenal will all be very expensive for example, but probably will get 2 premium, and a three way rotation
      C)Probably 4 premium 2 mid and 1 cheapie, but as I say it's impossible to tell right now

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Yea thats true, agree that alot will depend on the prices. But thought maybe there's some general template there that's worked pretty well over the seasons.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. You are kind of accurate in your estimates, but there is no science really, it just ends up like that

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. will be sticking to normal keeper plan of one playing and one cheap, depends on prices as to who.
      defenders will be 3 from top teams, again prices will influence who, if there is a wee coleman gem again
      and mids and forwards i will probably keep picking the broken ones

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. began playing 2nd half of last season, and found it pretty successful to just have one keeper (was Jussi and a 4.0, and jumped on Bego at the right time). Tried rotating keepers this season and has been a nightmare. GK was probably my worst position this year.

        Thinking of 3 defenders from the top teams too, took too long this season to jump on that change. Not sure if there will be gems in def again though, i recall preseason Coleman was pretty much in everyone's team! Maybe Rose or Jenkinson could be bargains next season, cant think of anyone else.

        hahaha yea will probably end up picking the wrong mids and forwards. one approach i might take is to spend abit more on defenders to keep for the season bar injury...then focus transfers on the attackers. found myself chopping and changing defenders too much this season to get the premium guys in (started off uber cheap to have a mid of Walcott Silva Hazard Coutinho...fml)

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. pretty early this post...Would have Been HULKED if you would have posted in july :)

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. haha will probably revisit this again in the summer DZ. June and July this preseason was fantastic, saw a good variety of teams with solid discussion going on. before it all got template in August...

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  13. Was looking through some of the ML's I'm in last night

    Was really surprised just how many FFS'ers (other than myself) brought Wickham in for Rooney

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Gr8 call in hindsight..seemed knee jerk at first to most in top 10k....

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. To me too, even though i did it

        Only did it as I guessed my ML leader wouldn't

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. My ML league had Dzeko as 3rd on bench and Captained rooney...Thanks to his forgetfulness i am top of my ML :)

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
          1. ML leader *

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
          2. Dzeko on the bench. 😯

            • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. I did, means I now have 7.0m itb and struggling to find ways to spend it 😆

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. That player of the month thing really raised his profile

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    4. I considered it, but though he'd play v Hull

      Thanks Giggs you dic%

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. A friend brought in Wellbeck for Rooney

        James Wilson, eh?

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  14. With the Suarez breakdown after CrY match debacle...isnt it best to say to cap Dzeko/Yaya for final round?Seems there maybe a chance Suarez may be very less driven and ManC players that much more...

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. not after villa turn it on and win 3-0

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Dunno about (C) but I'm definitely bringing Dzecko in instead of Sturridge

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Think Aguero+Mutch-->Dzeko+Gerrard will be worth -4??

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    3. Could go both ways with Suarez. Bit of a gamble. I might take the chance actually.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. He should be made to run around for the first 10 minutes with his shirt pulled up over his face.

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
        1. I am a manutd fan still sympathize with suarez after all he did for club this season scoring 30-40 goals and nothing to show for...on positive side Manutd 20 EPL titles are safely a record :)

          • 1 year, 3 months ago
  15. This gameweek has been a total damp squib. Only Mannone, Colback, Dzeko, Zabaleta and Yaya(C) can save me now!

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. At least my H2H semi-final is vaguely interesting. Trailing 41-43. Should see it out though - he's only got Yaya(c) left while I've got 5 players and Yaya(c) still to play. Cup final here we come!

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  16. I take it everyone else has been scared off RVP too now. I can't look past the obvious Dzeko and Studge.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Suarez, Dzeko and Giroud I think. Two transfer for -4 and any other crocks on the bench.

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Giroud and even ramsey maybe rested with Hull fa cup match in mind...

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
    2. Some despo ML 3rd finishers might just bring him in :p
      dzeko vs sturridge hmmm
      who you think will win
      1)Dzeko+GErrard
      vs
      2)Studge+Nasri

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
      1. Very, very hard to call. Maybe 2), only just

        • 1 year, 3 months ago
  17. New post peeps.

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
    1. Give me a reply. 😉

      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  18. New Post : Scout Notes
      • 1 year, 3 months ago
  19. Would Ramsey->Eriksen and Rooney-> Sturridge for -4 give me a relative safe starting 11 for last gw? Or should I also swap out Mata for Schurrle or Barkley or something?

    This is my team now, with Ramsey, Rooney, Aguero and Mata the ones not sure to start as far as I know

    Mannone
    Alonso Coleman Ivanovic
    Sterling Mata Yaya Nasri
    Rooney Agüero Suárez

    Subs: Boruc Ramsey Mariappa Vlaar

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  20. What's the best duo?
    RvP
    Sturridge
    Dzeko

    • 1 year, 3 months ago
  21. Was thinking of Ramsey to Silva Agureo to gerrard and get in cheap forward on the bench

    Mannone
    Smalling azpil Alonso
    Mata nasri yaya Ramsey
    Agureo saurez wickham

    Marshall punch ward Chester
