The Technical Area – Assessing De Gea

Minimising investment in goalkeepers has long been a popular adage among seasoned Fantasy managers. Year after year, we find ourselves searching for budget offerings who offer the sought-after combination of clean sheet and save-point potential.

The wider meta, however, often runs contrary to this strategy – with premium goalkeepers such as Thibaut Courtois, Hugo Lloris and David de Gea consistently ranking among the most popular players in Fantasy Premier League in terms of ownership.

    Aguero was not unconscious for 20 minutes. He fainted and went to hospital for a check up under his own steam

      Manchester Evening News are saying he regained consciousness at the hospital but this is based on the initial report of the story. Supppose it is all speculation

    Have Kane and Morata already but which of the below is better:

    A) Lukaku and Carroll

    B) Abraham and Sane

    1. BEATaroundDEBUCHY
      10 days, 3 hours ago

      If carroll would be in your starting 11 then B.

    2. So Show

      They way thing are going its wise to wait until today's games are done before making any transfers.

        10 days, 3 hours ago

      Go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all this to blow over.

      Already on 6, not to mention I have Hemed who won't start

    Given this injury carnage, Bobby has made the striker berth his own in my team. At least gives you Firminlolers something to lol at for another week.

    1. Fred51 - Ibeland

      Zanka away to bou.

      Erm yeah.

    2. Sánchez
      10 days, 3 hours ago

      Bobby has been in my team since gw1. Only permanent name in my side. There's always something else more pressing than selling him.

    Flipping a coin between transfers of Jes and Laca for Kaku almost 2 weeks. Now saving FT calling hahahahahahahahahah

  13. Patch
    10 days, 3 hours ago

    Had 5 flags just before I entered GW12. Perfect timing to WC and given the Aguero injury too, it feels to tinker around without fear.

    Pity there has been little money made, but I have avoided a lot of money lost on price falls from pre-WC team.

    Let's be honest guys Aguero is not going to start, let's take it as a blessing as less choice sometimes makes it easier.

    I need something to happen to Lukaku, my Nemesis and Rival both have him...
