Hall of Fame Update – Egersdoff Goes Top

The weekend break for the FA Cup handed us the opportunity to take stock of the latest standings in our Live Hall of Fame, which for the first time since the 2013/14 season, has a brand new leader.

This ranking system is applied to everyone who takes part in our Fantasy Premier League mini-leagues – both the free and members league. Managers’ performances over the seasons are then traced and scored via an exclusive algorithm to produce a Hall of Fame rating.

This article will take a close look at the histories and strategies deployed by those leading the current live HoF rankings.

This has been updated to take into account Gameweek 20 and can be viewed by Members via this link.

If you would like to know more about the Hall of Fame we have included a quick guide in this article. Alternatively, you can view this movie to listen to Mark and it’s creator, Chris Atkinson, talk you through it.

The career version, which shows the standings at the end of each season, is free to view here or via the HoF tab on the home page.

The new leader of the Hall of Fame is Jay Egersdoff, who has a rank of 1,616 in what is his 11th season. His reaching of the summit marks a dramatic ascent that included a move from 15th at the end of last season to third in our last analysis, which was published at the Gamweek 11 stage of the season.

A Gameweek 6 wildcard, that saw him rise from 44,965 to 12,177, has been key to his climb, as has the use of a five-man midfield, with Hull City’s Adama Diomande his makeweight as a third striker. This formation has helped him earn six green arrows in the last eight Gameweeks. In addition he has been careful not to take hits, with just two notched up so far.

His Christmas shopping spree proved particularly effective, with Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic coming in for Gameweek 18 and Leighton Baines of Everton and Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana drafted in ahead of Gameweek 19. His current squad also features Arsenal schemer Alexis Sanchez, Eden Hazard of Chelsea as well as Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson, with West Brom’s Chris Brunt and Chelsea left wing back Marcos Alonso helping out in defence.

With ten seasons under his belt already, seven of which ended with a top 5,000 placing, he has the track record to keep his current billing as Fantasy Football Scout’s best ever FPL manager.

When we last analysed the HoF top ten at the Gameweek 11 stage David Meechan had slipped from fifth to seventh but was already showing signs that he had managed to turn around his season.

A fall to 286,560 in the overall FPL placing in Gameweek 5 was met with the swift use of a wildcard the following week, which shaved more than 200,000 off his rank.

Since then, no less than 10 green arrows have followed and a strong festive fixture schedule saw him rise to a season high rank of 6,417 in Gameweek 20.

David is also not afraid to spend points, with the drafting in of Sergio Aguero and Junior Stanislas for Gameweek 20 marking his seventh hit of the campaign.

As with Jay, David also favours a 3-5-2 formation with Sunderland’s Victor Anichebe taking bench duties. Ibrahimovic is his other striker, with Sanchez and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen among his other successful picks.

Already he looks well placed to achieve his third top 1,000 finish, in this, his tenth season.

Slipping to third place is Ville Ronka, who since the 2013/14 campaign has dominated the Hall of Fame rankings.

His usually successful patient approach has failed to reap rewards this season as he now sits in 108,540 place in the overall FPL rankings, during a campaign that has been peppered with nine red arrows and seen him rack up four Gameweek ranks outside of the top three million.

With no hits taken throughout, arguably his lack of activity in the transfer market has proved costly. His faith in a tried and tested 3-4-3 may have also hindered him, especially as his third striker, Crystal Palace’s Christian Benteke, failed to deliver over Christmas. A midfield that includes Sigurdsson and Joe Allen of Stoke City is also looking overdue for a refresh.

If he is going to reclaim top spot and protect an exemplary nine season FPL career, in which his lowest season placing was 4,668th in 2012/13 and has included four top 1,000 finishes, a change of strategy may be required.

Marlen Rattiner remains in the fourth spot he achieved in our Gameweek 11 analysis but has markedly improved his rank from 41,539 to 13,561. A trio of green arrows over the festive fixtures was all the more remarkable considering he ditched Christian Eriksen in Gameweek 19.

Unlike Ville, Marlen has got the most out of a 3-4-3 formation of late, with Salomon Rondon of West Brom his third striker, sitting alongside Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero and Ibrahomovic. In midfield, Baggies winger Matt Phillips has proved a shrewd recent purchase. A fourth top 1,000 finish in this, his ninth season, looks well within his grasp.

This is proving a breakout season for Bruce Savage, who was in 19th place in the Hall of Fame at the end of last season and has risen from sixth to fifth place since Gameweek 11 this term.

A Gameweek 6 Wildcard provided a kick-start for his season and saw him rise 200,000 places to 65,308. He reached the top 10,000 in Gameweek 8, where he has stayed ever since. A current rank of 2,649 came after an excellent Gameweek 20 score of 78, in which he took two risky gambles.

Firstly, he removed Ibrahimovic and Eden Hazard, for his fourth hit of the season, to bring in Red Devil Paul Pogba and Aguero.

Secondly, and perhaps most significantly, he used his triple captain chip on the Manchester City striker, a move that could prove costly when double Gameweeks come along. This is his eleventh season in a career that includes three top 1,000 finishes.

Another enjoying a strong campaign is Sir Edo Nygren, who was just 66th in the HoF rankings at the end of 2015/16 before rising eighth in Gameweek 11 and sixth spot after Gameweek 20. He is our highest placed manager at 287 and, on his current form, could even push for top spot at the end of the season. He certainly looks to have cemented an eighth top 5,000 finish in his 11 season career.

As with Jay and David, a 3-5-2 formation has been key to his success, allowing him to have a midfield of Eriksen, Pogba, Lallana, Sanchez and Allen, with the latter perhaps the only weak link.

Up front, Sergio Aguero was installed for Gameweek 20 and joined Liverpool’s Divock Origi and Diomande, who takes up bench duties. He has managed to keep hits to a minimum this campaign, taking just three so far, and has been a regular fixture in the top 1,000 since Gameweek 8, with Gameweek 13’s rank of 79 his best to date.

In seventh sits Grant Barclay, who was 69th in the HoF at the end of the 2015/16 season. He is the top 10’s second highest placed manager, with a Gameweek 20 overall rank of 375 and is in his seventh season in a career that has seen him finish in the top 5,000 three times.

He is another to go easy on the hits, with just three taken so far, and also used a Gameweek 6 wildcard well to propel himself into the top 100,000.

In addition, he is among the top ten’s 3-5-2 advocates, with Aguero and Ibrahomovic up top and Hazard, Sanchez and Tottenham’s Dele Alli among his midfield stars. He was ahead of the curve regarding the Spurs man, after drafting him in back in Gameweek 14.

Peter Kouwenberg is still struggling to move up the overall FPL rankings.

He moved from third in the HoF at the end of last season, to fifth in Gameweek 11 and has now dipped to eighth. His overall rank has remained steady within the top 100,000 since Gameweek 10 and he now sits in 45,792 place, unable to make a breakthrough into the top 10,000.

Arguably hits have been an issue, with 14 taken so far, but a respectable Gameweek 20 score of 65 should give him hope he can recapture the good form that has seen him finish in the top 500 on two occasions over his 11 season career.

He currently has Origi as his third striker, but it remains to be seen whether he will switch to a 3-5-2 formation. His faith in fixtures over form may also change, as in Gameweek 20 he benched Eriksen and his 11 point haul for the Spurs man’s home clash with Chelsea.

One of the highest climbers in our Gameweek 11 updates was Mark Mansfield, who leapt from 109th to ninth place in the HoF. It is a spot he retains, after finishing Gameweek 20 with an overall rank of 772. A lack of hits is a feature of his strategy, with just four taken so far.

Mark’s strong midfield of Hazard, Sanchez, Eriksen and Phillips should ensure he retains a high placing. He will also be hoping that new recruit Aguero can avoid further red cards, although he also has Ibrahimovic to add some consistency to his three-man frontline, that also features Origi.

Glynn Sherwood (aka Spectrum) takes tenth place to join our group of successful Fantasy veterans, after finishing in 36th in the Hall of Fame at the end of last season. This is Glynn’s 11th campaign over a career that has included five top 10,000 finishes and a 133 placing in 2014/15.

Glynn has taken just four hits this season and is currently 16,207 in the overall rankings. Origi is Glynn’s third striker in a 3-4-3 formation, which includes Eriksen, Hazard, Sanchez and Gameweek 20 new recruit Phillips in midfield, with Costa and Ibrahimovic in attack.

Notable Mentions

Last year’s champion Dimitri Nicolaou‘s torrid season continued over Christmas with Gameweek 20 seeing him slip out of the top 2,000,000 in the overall rankings for the first time.

Tom Fenley, 2013/14’s winner, is fairing better. He is currently 127,825 in the overall FPL standings, a considerable improvement on his Gameweek 11 rank of 394,857, and is now 407th in the live HoF.

However, FPL champion of 2014/15 Simon March (aka Dufflinks), is struggling to improve on his Gameweek 11 rank of 333,085 and now sits in 393,729 position.  This has seen him slip to 171th in the live HoF.

Mark is the FFScout team’s  highest ranked FPL manager, after finishing the festive fixture run in 26,327 position in the overall rankings, his highest rank so far. That takes him to up to 26th in the live HoF.

Hall of Fame FAQ

How is my rating calculated?
The “HoF Rating” is based on your points scores from previous FPL seasons, with the latest season, weighted the heaviest and each corresponding season weighted at roughly 70% that of the previous season. So, in other words, those who performed best in 2014/15 will receive a bigger HoF Rating boost from those who did best in 2007/08. The “HoF Ranking” even allows for those with missing years, adapting the formula accordingly to allow to rank alongside the veterans of the FPL.

How do I join the Hall of Fame
Simply sign up to our leagues, either the Fantasy Football Scout Classic League (see home page for code) or if you’re a member, the Members Classic League (see Members home page for code).

    I struggle to embrace the notion that a Stanislas punt is wise in the end. Was toying with idea of getting him in, but feel like it would just be a let down.

    1. Man Chest Hair United
      10 months, 16 days ago

      I think he is a great punt for the next month

      1. The Enlightener
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Was looking at his history a bit, and he never has been a goal scoring machine. Pretty poor actually in relation to appearances leading up to this season. I guess the price is so good that it wouldn't be the worst punt, but seems like possible fool's gold.

      2. The Enlightener
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Hilarious grav and team name, by the way. Love it.

        1. Man Chest Hair United
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Thanks mate. Yeah just the fixtures and price tag not much can go wrong with the punt if he fails then you move on

    2. badgerboy

      His injury record puts me off more than anything.

      1. The Enlightener
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Was gonna mention that too, but hadn't yet officially came to the conclusion that he was injury-prone whilst doing my quick research on him. But that was my feeling anyway.

    3. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I agree.

    4. lasmons
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I did Siggy + Anichebe -> Stanislas + Giroud. Have a good feeling.

    5. The Overthinker - Emre Cana…
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Snoddy a better punt for a week?

  2. Man Chest Hair United

    Is there a scout cast this week?

    1. Hurricane Gilbert

      You are top 50 actually. 133 was before this season.

      1. Teahupo'o
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Wow, nice! Will go back to ponying up for a membership next season and have proper access to these tables.

        What's your take on my transfer, TM?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          10 months, 16 days ago

          Lukaku is higher on the Watchlist. Hard to ignore the Giroud form though.
          Depends how you use the money difference.

          1. Teahupo'o
            10 months, 16 days ago

            Was initially thinking of an upgrade on Nyom, but a few quid short on the players I would want.

    2. Hurricane Gilbert
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Lukaku to hit a purple patch again. Keep.

    3. Dark_Mata

  4. badgerboy

    Which combo would you prefer for the next four gameweeks?

    Bellerin and Phillips or
    Giroud and Chambers

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      How can compare combo where one is mid and other is att?

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Ok, Bellerin Phillips and Barnes or Chambers De Roon and Giroud?

        1. Hurricane Gilbert
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Rose Phillips and Barnes imo

    2. Hurricane Gilbert
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Phillips is a steal but I don't like Bellers

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 16 days ago

        +1

    3. badgerboy

      Cheers for the opinions guys.

      Second one with friend

  5. Hurricane Gilbert
    10 months, 16 days ago

    Possible Wing factor makes Sánchez less attractiv as cap. Giroud (C) probably a better choice assuming he starts.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      So last 2 seasons Sanchez on wing thrown out the window?

      1. Hurricane Gilbert
        10 months, 16 days ago

        I'm talking about this season, don't be silly. You could see clearly in the last games that Alexis was playing deeper and that everyone tried to cross the ball towards Giroud.

        1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          He played deeper at times when he was listed as striker. In fact it was becoming a bit of an issue.

          1. Hurricane Gilbert
            10 months, 16 days ago

            Yes and that remains to see how deep he will play. With Özil back he might push forward and play closer to Gru. What worries me is if Gru steals Sanchez points because he now is the focal point.

            1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              10 months, 16 days ago

              Aye. Giroud may well be a top, top pick for a while,

              1. Hurricane Gilbert
                10 months, 16 days ago

                I very much don't hope that it will be the case though. Replaced Origi with Defoe instead of Gru because I wanted a safe 3rd striker for once. Also enabled me to jump on the Alli bandwagon without replacing Hazard before HUL.

                1. Sess!
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  10 months, 16 days ago

                  Very much the sensible thing to do. Especially the keeping haz part imo.

        Well why don't you try to read what I wrote one more time

        1. Kiwivillan

          I did after I hit Post. Still applies

    3. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      I think just owning giroud is enough of a differential.

      1. Hurricane Gilbert
        10 months, 16 days ago

        You convinced me to bring in Defoe Sess. I hope Dean wakes up on the right side of the bed and gives you three more pens 😉

        1. Sess!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Ha ha, Defoe is a great pick. You might have to have patience with him but he's not 3rd in the forward fpl rankings this year for nothing. Soon as giroud is ousted from the first team I'll finally be getting him myself.

          1. Hurricane Gilbert
            10 months, 16 days ago

            Sounds good! Are you going to the game?

            Lacked patience this year and 3rd striker has been a mare all season for me. Gru a great pick but now I wanted to settle for a solid long term choice with Defoe.

            1. Sess!
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              10 months, 16 days ago

              Yeah I'll be there. We have a decent record at home against stoke so fingers crossed!

              1. Hurricane Gilbert
                10 months, 16 days ago

                Cool, hope you have a good one! Buzzing atmosphere at the Stadium of Light. As a Swede I hope Larsson will showcase his brilliant freekicks for you.

          Dean has given majority penalties to away team I think. Damn should've got Adams

  6. leocarter27

    Anyone know who's on pens for Arsenal as Santi is injured?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Giroud most likely

    2. The Enlightener
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Giroud, according this website.

    3. Dark_Mata
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Surely Sanchez?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Not on recent form.

      2. Sess!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Anyone but sanchez

      3. Kiwivillan

    4. Sess!

      Giroud

  7. The Enlightener

    Lei without Mahrez is starting to feel like a Hazard kinda party. 😎

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Mahrez doesn't defend and Hazard form away is shocking. Also Leicester at home not a pushover and they'll be up for this game

  8. Dark_Mata
    10 months, 16 days ago

    Money no object...
    A lallana
    B coutinho

    1. The Enlightener
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Cout has a bit of reworking himself back in, I would anticipate. Thus, for now anyways, Lallana is probs better option. I would probably hold off for a GW if poss and then reassess.

    2. Hurricane Gilbert
      10 months, 16 days ago

      For now Lallana, but when Cou regains fitness he will be the real deal

    3. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      B quite comfortably

    4. Kiwivillan

      Firmino

    5. Kiwivillan

      Seriously though Lallana is crazy undervalued. People selling must have goldfish memories if they can't forgive one blank

    Valdes
    Alonso, Rose, Pieters
    Sanchez (c), Alli, Lallana, Stanislas
    Ibra, Costa (vc), Giroud

    Foster, Phillips, Jones, Lovren

    (a) play Pieters or Jones &
    (b) is Valdes to Heaton worth a -4 hit since Valdes is injured

    Thoughts & thanks.

    To facilitate Origi to Giroud for -4

    Hazard to
    A Lallana
    B Pedro
    C Save and play Origi and Hazard (De Roon first on bench as sub)

    1. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Pedro if anyone but I'd prioritise hazard in my team over Giroud.

    Cech / jakupovic

    Valencia Alonso Mee / Love Nyom

    Sanchez Hazard Coutinho Chadli Allen

    Too early for differentials? I'm 120 behind in one ML! 🙁

      Need to find the weak spots in rivals team and exploit them.

    2. chapelle
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Wouldn't go too differential would focus more on cunning captain picks.

    Hazard and Firminio ➡ Alli and Eriksen for -4?

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Hazard is a protected species on here

    2. Hurricane Gilbert
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Not with HUL and SWA next week for Haz and Firm

      1. chapelle
        10 months, 16 days ago

        have Costa and Lallana and no spurs though.

        1. Hurricane Gilbert
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Then you have a massive squad next week! Anything else you could do this week?

          1. chapelle
            10 months, 16 days ago

            Could just do Firminio ➡ Alli or Eriksen on the free

            1. Hurricane Gilbert
              10 months, 16 days ago

              A better transfer. I would go with Eriksen as I think he will be more consistent. More sources of points.

    3. v12w12
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Not for me

    4. Dark_Mata
      10 months, 16 days ago

      I would

    5. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Haz is beast at home. Haz next 5 home games:

      HUL, ARS, SWA, WAT, CPL

      Keep Haz.

      1. Dark_Mata
        10 months, 16 days ago

        We'll see. Verdict is still out on him for the money IMO. I'm happy to miss a couple of decent scores for better consistency

        1. Sess!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          I must admit his away form is frustrating but he'll get plenty of points amongst those fixtures.

      2. chapelle
        10 months, 16 days ago

        See your point but that extra 2m goes a long way for me. Upgrade de roon to Phillips or Stanislas in a 352.

        Sanchez Firminio Lallana Alli Phillips
        Ibra Costa

    6. ryacoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      If possible, keep Hazard and just do Firmino to Alli/Eriksen imo.

  15. Dark_Mata
    10 months, 16 days ago

    Ok, I know it's quiet and I don't usually post RMT's but thanks to some educated input my WC is looking good. Anything I'm missing, or anything you'd do differently?

    Grant (Jak)
    Jones Brunt Baines (Chambers, Muniesa)
    Eriksen, Sanchez, Alli, Phillips, Lallana
    Ibra Aguero (Barnes)

    0.5 ITB for Lallana > Cout next GW

    Cheers guys.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      I think your midfield is great and I wouldn't rush to sell Lallana. He's as good an fpl asset as Coutinho for the price and would wait few weeks to see how no Mane effects scoring

      1. Dark_Mata
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Cool, cheers

  16. Moeda
    10 months, 16 days ago

    Play Phillips or DeRoon as 4th Mid this GW?

    1. Sess!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Phillips by an absolutely country mile.

      1. Moeda
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks, just wary of the tot away fixture.

        1. Sess!
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Got to play the form players regardless of fixtures.

          1. The Enlightener
            10 months, 16 days ago

            deRooney in form too though, no?

        2. ryacoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Phillips has got a ton of points from his set piece deliveries - always a chance of WBA scoring from a corner or free kick, even against Spurs.

          1. Hurricane Gilbert
            10 months, 16 days ago

      Imo you only have 3 playing defenders. Ake and Amat he ones to go.

  18. ToddyBoyC

    What changes 2 Ft 0 in the bank ??

    Forster

      Mac to brunt perhaps?

    2. kalmoffit

      Something involving Hazard and Capoue.

  19. The Enlightener

    Just got Giroud in. Honk! Honk! Outta my way!

    1. Kiwivillan

      If he blanks it's your fault

      1. The Enlightener
        10 months, 16 days ago

        I will shoulder the burden! But we (that would be both me and Giroud) don't think that will happen.

    Pickford McAuley Rondon Ake

    1. Hurricane Gilbert

      Save it and then next gw you could boost your defence

      1. Deano
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Thinking Rondon to Giroud this week and Ake to Baines next?

    2. kalmoffit
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Maybe Giroud in for Rondon, so you can bench Anichebe?

  22. TorresMagic™

      Pieters

    2. The Enlightener
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Pieters. Or grab one of them Middlesbrough lads. Friend or Chambers for 4.4. I think more than most that Friend more nailed now back to fitness, and I like his higher assist potential and what not. So I like him more than Chambers.

      1. Ginola14
        10 months, 16 days ago

        I'd look at getting a new friend

        1. Disturbed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          10 months, 16 days ago

          Or maybe getting a new Pieter?

          1. The Enlightener
            10 months, 16 days ago

            Sounds like a risky surgery.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              10 months, 16 days ago

      2. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Thanks. Was contemplating between pieters and chambers. Could get friend if I don't need the extra 0.1m somewhere else. Wc active

    3. dunas_dog

      Pieters

    4. Paul Psychic Octopus
      10 months, 16 days ago

      you could use (waste) 2FTs like I did...

      Barragan > Ake > Chambers (or >Barragan, if I really want to feel the pain)

      1. Disturbed

              10 months, 16 days ago

              OK. It's Pieters, Friend or Nyom. With Amat as your 5th, you need to make sure your 4th is half decent.

              1. Disturbed
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                10 months, 16 days ago

                Guess it's a toss up between pieters and friend. Thanks for the responses folks.

                1. The Enlightener
                  10 months, 16 days ago

                  If you on WC, you might get Chambers in and hope he rises twice this week and make a little pointage before you get him out for one of those dudes.

                  1. Disturbed

                      I did the same. May only get a .1 out of it, but every little bit helps!

  24. Birds of Prey
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Do I have to get rid of one of my 4 Chelsea guys in order to make changes? Looks that way, I didn't ask for this.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      See hot topic. Unlucky.

    2. The Enlightener
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Well, Ake pretty much useless right now anyways, so no big deal.

      1. The Enlightener
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Although the fact that he is in the way transfer-wise is a pain in the ttocks.

  25. Ginola14
    10 months, 16 days ago

    Can't settle on a WC def
    I want baines rose Alonso and brunt but am 0.3 short so which one to leave out? Cheers

    1. Deano
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Alonso

    2. Dark_Mata
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Alonso

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      10 months, 16 days ago

      you're hoping for attacking points with Baines. With Alonso it's clean sheets, almost week in, week out

  26. Pariße
    10 months, 16 days ago

    2FTs, best thing to do?
    A) Origi & Sigurdsson > Stanislas & Giroud
    B) Koné & Sigurdsson > Chambers & Stanislas/Barkley/Antonio/Pedro

    1. Ginola14
      10 months, 16 days ago

      Got Phillips?

      1. Pariße

        Nope 🙂

    2. Lawrø - KenYaYa ⭐
      10 months, 16 days ago

      A) in a heartbeat assuming no other pressing matters

      1. Pariße
        10 months, 16 days ago

        Potentially Walcott, option B covers that because I don't need another defender for the GW.

    3. Deano
      10 months, 16 days ago

      A
