    Would love to see Hazard replace Morata in the Cheslea 11 next week.

    1. Natkhat Chokra

      Hazard, Pedro, Willian

      Hmmmm

        Maybe Giroud. That's definitely a situation to monitor

      Why? Didn’t look great up top last season.

      1. mysterion

          Maybe Sarri can turn him into Mertens 2.0

            I think he plays at his best when he’s got space in front of him. But hey, you might be right. Not seen much of SarriBall tbh.

        Brilliant player when he is on his game the frustrating thing is he goes missing for long periods at times during the season not sure why but it always coincides with unrest in the camp

          Feel he good be a good option this season. I can’t wait to get him in my team. Just want to see how he fits in next week.

      Puel close to getting the sack apparently with Martinez+Henry rumoured in.

      1. Holmes
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        Already?

      2. Natkhat Chokra
        • 1 Year

        What wrong has he done tho?

      3. Parm
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Terrible idea. Leicester have a nice young squad and Puel is great at nurturing talent.

      4. Syd.
        • 9 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        Lost away to Man Utd and he is now getting sacked

        Who makes this shite up

          It’s down to the form of last season carried on, its not just now!! The owners have absolutely no patience

      Is will hughes still worth it?

          i dont get it?

            9 days, 5 hours ago

            It's the match report posted by a Watford fan.

            To sum it up for you, they do feel that the fact that Hughes is playing on the wings is hindering his attacking potential. He's a much better player when he plays central.

            You can monitor for another week or two and then decide if you wanna keep or ship.

        You picked him for a reason, right? Can’t score every game. His turn next time maybe.

      Rage transferred Richarlison in for Jota yesterday, he was in my squad for weeks before deadline but changed my mind last minute ffs! Anyone else forget how annoying this game is every off season?

      1. WesMantooth
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        9 days, 5 hours ago

        This is Bound to happen every year. As the clock ticks down you left with what? 6-7 players your absolutely certain about, and maybe 10+ players you like to fit in the reamining 4-5 slots. Theres Always gonna be that one player you dabbled with, that explodes gw1 and gives regret. Just need to accept that thats one of the likeliest things to happen in gw1 is my guess.

        1. Homer21
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          9 days, 5 hours ago

          Yep, you read various comments on here and that sways you one way or another but at the end if the day YOU pressed the transfer button so you got to accept your decision and move on to next GW - I swapped out Neves, Richarilson and Shaw last minute but lets see how my replacements do today!

      2. Greggaz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        If Rich is injured your decision could turn out to be the right one! Jota’s form last year was awesome...

        I went with Rixh over Jota and hopefully I was right... but to early to tell

      Hamer had 1(!) save and conceded 3. Perhaps not all time record, but Lössl could not have done worse.

      As Patricio owner I am not happy with Wolves defence. Opinions?

        Go with foster. Gracia is such a defensiveminded manager.

    10. Bayern Swine Flu
      • 4 Years

      Worth sticking with Siggy or knee jerk to Richarlison/Neves to catch rise?

      Feel like siggy was unlucky yesterday after being subbed off early..

      1. Greggaz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        I don’t think knee jerks are ever right but tbh I wouldn’t have gone for Siggy in the first place.

        So if I had Siggy in my team I would sub him out, yeah...

        Unless it would effect other sub plans.

    11. Nicks93

      Anyone watched Kenedy yesterday?

      Did he look good or should I shift to Neves?

      Thanks

        Looked good, hit the post with fiery shot.

      3. Jealous Viper
          9 days, 5 hours ago

          Was active and up and about. One to monitor. Had a golden chance but poor first touch let him down. Newcastle were surprisingly expansive yesterday and deserved at least a point. If they keep playing that way, he could be an absolute bargain

      4. FootballFanatic365- BOOM Xh…
        • 4 Years
        9 days, 5 hours ago

        save ft ?

        Patrício
        Robertson Luiz Davies
        Salah Pedro Jota Richarlison
        King Agüero Aubameyang

          100%. Too early to make any rash decisions

          I have knee jerked after 1 GW in the old days and my starting team then started performing

          Keep the faith!

      5. Jealous Viper
          9 days, 5 hours ago

          A lot could change obviously but from gw 15 to 26, Kane, Alli/Son and a Spurs defender/Lloris could be gold

        • Jealous Viper
            9 days, 5 hours ago

            I feel the best thing you can do yourself is to not make a transfer after gw1. Lots of emotion and anger. Feel people should save the free transfer on gw2 and then have 3 possibly heading into gw3. The likes of AWB, Rich, Neves could so easily blank next week

            1. Sting
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              9 days, 5 hours ago

              but if you're bringing in AWB, Rich, Neves you're not just bringing them in for 1GW.

              All 3 currently look the best value in their respective price points

                Just watched a recording of the Sunday Supplement. One chap sent a twitter in @jungleking I think, saying in the first season José Mourinho buys a bus, second season he parks the bus, third season he throws his players under the bus. Strangely accurate, except he doesn't usually wait until his 3rd season to do that.

                  The man is a rodent. The sooner English football is shot of this negative, petulant, ignorant little pest, the greater the game will be after it recovers from the plague he infected it with. He treats the media, his players and ultimately the punter with contempt and arrogance. A true little Rattus Rattus.

                The Sunday Supplement also showed the back pages that Leicester's manager Claude Puel is going to be replaced. I'm sure some of these owners replace managers with as much empathy was we 'FPL managers' replace players.

                  The Sunday supplement is full of sh!t. No way the board sacks him now instead of 5 nil Crystal Palace... He'll be given at least 8-10 games

                    I think it was the back page of the Sunday People. So it must be true!

                Should I do this:
                Swap Aguero to Kamara now, so I could get Pogba, B.Silva and Richarlison (For Jota, Gunnarsson and Stephens) after R2 and take 8 points penalty then?

                My current team:
                Foster (Fabianski)

                  I’d be keeping Aguero for Huddersfield match, potential of a hatful. Team looking good to me for another week no changes.

                    After writing this I realised that trading Aguero after GW2 will cost me just as much penalty points as trading him now, so that was stupid from me, but anyway thanks for your answer I will keep the team for GW2
