    What to do? (Midfield currently: Salah, Mane, Pedro, Neves)

    1. Transfer Salah for Haz
    2. Transfer Salah for Dilva
    3. Keep Salah

      Anything ITB?

        £0.2m ITB, 1 FT

        Sell Salah for Dilva, or even Sterling preferably. Then swap Neves for Maddison, Moura or any other better midfielder with ur new bank balance.

          Yeah thanks, think I'm actually going to hold on to Salah this week for the FT next week. Then Dilva and Maddison will definitely be up there with my first priorities. Not a fan of Moura.

            Richarlison too of course.

      Did a little draft WC. I think if I had the button on this week I'd go for something like:

      Hennessey
      Doherty - Mendy - Alonso
      Dilva - Hazard - Salah - Schurrle
      Ings - Aguero - Wilson

      Hamer - Ricardo Pereira - AWB - Hojbjerg.

      Sacrifices Mitrovic and Robertson from other templates but has a really nice attacking 7, three attacking fullbacks, plus cover for Ings GW6 in the shape of Ricardo (HUD).

        Why not bennett?

        1. FPLGraham

          2 months, 4 days ago

          Doherty is shooting / crossing like a maniac.

          Bennett a good option if you need cash, and Patricio definitely a strong GK choice but I think Doh is in line for attacking returns soon.

      2. Hazard is an FPL legend

      Bottomed:

      A. BSilva > DSilva

      B. Firmino > Vardy

      1. Alajiii

        Looks like Fraser is out, what a bummer

      3. NtchampagneSupernova
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Hart
        Shaw - Robertson - Mendy
        Salah - Mane - BSilva - Mikhi
        Zaha - Aguerro - Ings

        Subs; Hamer - Neves - AWB - Daniels

        Mane, Mikhi, Daniels > Hazard, Pedro, Bennett (-4)

        Thoughts?
