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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Liverpool and Man City.

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. This

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. Suarez will!

      And anyone looking for a transfer this summer..

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Utd*

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

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

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
    4. Hvt

      Only those trying to make the last few spots for the Wc (Ramsey / Caroll and the likes)

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. This!

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

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. SASAS*

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Dafuq

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. Sterling

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

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

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

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

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. great use of Yonks"

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

        • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
    1. Would be Speroni for me.

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

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

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

          • 1 year, 1 month ago
          1. hmm quite possible!

            • 1 year, 1 month 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 πŸ˜€

          • 1 year, 1 month ago
          1. haha true!

            • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
    2. No no no no no

      Will Coleman play? Will Hazard play? Who knows?

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. Nothing to play for

          Give the reserves a run-out

          Not a bad opportunutiy

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

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Talksport *sigh*

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Ok :-)

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. Unsellable with that wage.

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

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

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. I've to sell Rooney πŸ˜›

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

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

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
        1. KZS imo.

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

    • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
      1. How so?

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

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

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

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

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

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

          • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
                1. I can see that

                  • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
      1. Hvt

        Yea agree , I really think Ade / Erik will do well this week and are nailed.

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

          • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
    2. Hvt

      Everton to beat hull , Lukaku / Baines / Coleman.

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

        Hopefully they play a full team, but who knows?

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

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
      1. The %1 is 1 million in the bank for transfers πŸ˜‰

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
      2. πŸ˜† knew some smartass would add it up...

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

          • 1 year, 1 month ago
          1. as intended πŸ˜€

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

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

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

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

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

        • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
          1. ML leader *

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

            • 1 year, 1 month ago
    2. I did, means I now have 7.0m itb and struggling to find ways to spend it πŸ˜†

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

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

      Thanks Giggs you dic%

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

        James Wilson, eh?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

        • 1 year, 1 month ago
  17. New post peeps.

    • 1 year, 1 month ago
    1. Give me a reply. πŸ˜‰

      • 1 year, 1 month ago
  18. New Post : Scout Notes
      • 1 year, 1 month 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, 1 month ago
  20. What's the best duo?
    RvP
    Sturridge
    Dzeko

    • 1 year, 1 month 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
