    HAMER to make a comeback next week and be the star player?

    1. Eden Wizard

      Hamer time

  2. Steevo

    2FT to burn...
    A) Kane, Maddison -> Mané, Firmino (no Salah)
    B) Kane, Maddison -> Salah, King/Murray
    C) Kane, AWB -> Firmino, Robertson

    Currently on A

    1. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Why Maddison out? Or just because of Liverpool assets?

    2. Differential (c)

      Obvi wait on IB to be done, but like the look of B

    3. circusmonkey

      C. Palace bad fixtures. Also bou bad fixtures from gw 11.

      1. Y26 Royal
        • 2 Years

        B for me

    Fost> patricio

    1.Double wolves is fine? when they have spurs and ars
    2.is fost>pat a good long term option
    3. and can easily be rotated with fab

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Pat probably the best set and forget 4.5m option imo. Fab close second.

  4. KneejerkJoe

    Good morning all!
    Anyone have some toughts on this?

    Patricio
    Alonso Robertson Trippier
    Hazard Mane Richarlison Fraser
    Aguero Auba Deeney
    ...Hamer Holebas Awb Gunnarsson
    0.2itb.2ft.wc available.

    A) Holebas -> Digne/Keane
    B) Tripper -> Mendy
    C) Both
    D) Something Else

    Looking at Evertons5 og 9 homegames..

    Looking at doing Auba -> Firmino and Deeney -> Arnautovic or Auba -> Arnoutovic and Mane -> Salah for gw10.

        B

      • Demel
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        B is tempting.

        1. KneejerkJoe
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Thanks. Was my original plan but with Holebas dropping and those tasty homegames for Everton Digne or Keane are tempting!

      • Differential (c)
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Nice team! B probably the sensible move imo. Try to get in Arnie for Deeney eventually, that would be the plan imo

        1. KneejerkJoe
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Thanks! Thats what im thinking aswell. Deeney has been so close to scoring and Watford should have har a pen og two and got Huddersfield gw10 but arnie looking too good. Looking at Auba to Laca/Firmino to afford Arnautovic. But also concidering Salah for Mane for the captain options. Toughts On everton def for their home games?

          1. circusmonkey

            • 8 Years
            8 months, 20 days ago

            Everton don't look good for clean sheets.

      • jca
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Ditch Holebas. He will be getting 5th yellow soon. Doherty is hard to ignore and is .2 cheaper. B is ok

    2. HurriKane
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 20 days ago

      Which striker do you prefer longterm?

      A) Arnie

      B) Murray

      C) Wilson

      (Already got Mitrovic)

          Haha same I thought I was a gonna for sure

      5. Demel
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 20 days ago

        Ryan
        Alonso - Robertson - Trippier
        Fraser - Maddison - Hazard- Pogba
        Aguero - Jimenez - Kane

        Button - Doherty - AWB - Ward

        2 FT
        0.7m

        I think I am pretty set on...

        Kane/Ward > Kamara/Salah

        1. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Kane+Pogba out imo, Kamara not worth a place.

          1. Demel
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 20 days ago

            So you agree with the proposed switch?

            Kane/Ward > Kamara/Salah

            1. Differential (c)
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 20 days ago

              I mean, I'd rather Kane+Pogba->Salah+Someone half-decent.

              1. Demel
                • 7 Years
                8 months, 20 days ago

                Ah my bad. My actual move was Kane/Pog > Arnie/Salah.

                1. Differential (c)
                  • 3 Years
                  8 months, 20 days ago

                  No worries. Good teamluck!

                  1. Differential (c)
                    • 3 Years

                    *team and good luck!

        2. Eden Wizard

          Ok

        Apologies, bottomed on previous page.

        Anything to do here?

        Hennessey
        Alonso Walker Bellerin
        Salah Hazard Richarlison Fraser
        Aguero Mitrovic Jimenez

        Fabianski H.Costa Bennett AwB

        2 FT 1.3m ITB

        Cheers.

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Simple Walker > Mendy trade. I would also consider Robbo in for Belarin. Team looks great.

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 20 days ago

            Cheers. Walker to Mendy is my planned deadline move if nothing pressing. Robbo for Bellerin is also very interesting, hm. Makes a lot of sense in fact.

        2. KneejerkJoe
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Change Hennessey before their bad run? Kennedy for Costa maybe? Og Walker to Mendy?

          Care to look at my team on this page?:)

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 20 days ago

            Fab easily covers Hen imo.
            The costa move is possible, but that looks more like a "if nothing too pressing" move. Still nice pick.
            Cheers

            1. KneejerkJoe
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 20 days ago

              Agree, ur team is that good so as long as no injurys I dont see any pressing. Like the Bellerin to Robby move also.

        3. KUNingas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Hennessey -> Patricio? Or Costa -> Kenedy? No need for massive changes

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 20 days ago

            Triple Woovees means that I jave to make thos moves simulataneously haha. Cheers!

        Any 1 getting KDB? thinking to swap Bilva>KDB

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          I think getting on him early makes sense. Others will tell you to wait until he starts (which also has some merit).

          1. Eden Wizard
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 20 days ago

            Ok

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          You might want to wait to see what role Pep gives him. He's a class act, but 9.7 is still quite a lot for a player who spends most of the time in the middle of the park. However I realise that he can do wonderful things from deep - even smacking them in from 25 yards.

        3. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          My main option if Salah continues to disappoint, besides Sterling.

        4. Y26 Royal
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Once he's got a game under his belt i want him back in.

        5. J - Gimme your Mané …
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          For me, I’d rather scrape together another mil or so and have sterling.

        Thoughts on these moves for -4

          • 8 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Yeah nice. Failcazette looked good vs dodgy defence.

        2. Y26 Royal
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Or Mane instead of Salah and upgrade Diop?

      9. Eden Wizard

            1. Demel
              • 7 Years
              8 months, 20 days ago

              Better to have a good team + rank and still have your wildcard left.

              1. Eden Wizard
                • 1 Year
                8 months, 20 days ago

                You forgot the free transfers, you're the worst troll here, i'd start with trolling a smaller troll first. Cya.

            Shaw>TAA wasted!
            Bilva out to give £2.8ml ITB, magic bean!

              • 4 Years
              8 months, 20 days ago

              I want TAA too!

              This year’s magic bean? Kenedy?

              1. Eden Wizard
                • 1 Year
                8 months, 20 days ago

                I bought TAA before he rose, now he's falling on account of not playing FACEPALM!

                Alonso>TAA looks a great move for you.

                I had Kenedy from the start when he missed that penalty at Cardiff, hate the man!

                1. J - Gimme your Mané …
                  • 4 Years
                  8 months, 20 days ago

                  Funny you mentioned Alonso as I’m genuinly thinking of getting rid of him.

                  Can’t see TAA not keeping up/outscoring him over this next period..... for 1.6m cheaper or whatever it is it starts looking to hard to resist.

                  Ah don’t worry I can’t see TAA falling.....

                  Dam that’s unkucky re kenedy!

                  1. Eden Wizard
                    • 1 Year
                    8 months, 20 days ago

                    I had Kenedy in my scout picks, i won by 9 and would have been 19 if he'd scored....coupled with the fact i had him in my FPL team...he's dead to me!!!!!!

                    My magic bean is from Bournemouth and, appears to be fixture proof for the price with great stats.

                      Ah, I know who you mean now ! Nice pick.

                      Well il be going Kenedywithin next couple of weeks, bit of healthy competition between our magic beans 😎

        Have some options with 2FTs. Only TAA from Pool in my team now.

        A) Kane Fraser Trippier to Laca Mane Laporte -4
        B) Kane Fraser Trippier to Vardy Mane Robo -4
        C) Kane Fraser Trippier to Wilson/King Salah Laporte -4 (So I can have funds for Wilson/King to Arnautovic for GW11)

        Could keep Trippier in B and C.

          • 4 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Nice team. I like the KDB punt, all WC teams need 1 punt I think.

        2. Willmissudimitrypayet
          • 2 Years
          8 months, 20 days ago

          Looks good at first glance.

          But you need to have a premium forward to make transfers easy. Aguero can easily bag a hatrick next game. How do you fund him?

          Put Lacazette in and downgrade Alonso to Doherty and Jimy to 4.5 to have a smaller price gap between your striker and the premiums on your watchlist. Just my opinion.

        Look forward to seeing those articles unlocked!

        Seeing as Non Members can experience this from the other side of the fence (i.e. view the locked articles) then I reckon Members should also view life from the other side of the fence (i.e. prohibited from reading the articles).

        Ederson/Begovic

        Alonso/Robertson/Doherty/AWB/Ogbonna
        Hughes/Mane/Hazard/Richarlison/Ralls
        Kane/Wilson/Mitrovic

        I have already used my FT to bring in Hazard for Salah. I am thinking about using my WC to make my team the following:

        Ederson/Hamer
        Alonso/Robertson/Doherty/AWB/Bennett
        Hojeberg/Mane/Hazard/Richarlison/Fraser
        Ageuro/Lacazette/Wilson

        Thoughts?

          I dont think that's worth using your wild card for. Your team is fine for now, keep hold of it.

        On a wildcard and finding myself dumping players people are bringing in and vice versa.

        I'm losing Fraser, Ings, Maddison amongst others.

        Arnautovic, Mitrovic, David Silva coming in.

        Any of these seem like a bad idea?

          Wouldn’t bring in Dilva and wouldn’t get rid of maddison

            Maddison just doesn't look the same player out on a wing. Eye test suggests he's been very lucky with the points he's got.

              With those fixtures though I think his points will keep ticking over very nicely for a 6.5 million mid (that’s what I paid for him anyway not sure what he costs now)

        Would you WC this team?

        Foster (Hamer)
        Doherty Alonso Alex-Arnold (ASmith WBisaka)
        BSilva Fraser Hazard Mane (Maddison)
        Mitrovic Wilson Kane

        Anybody doubling up on City attackers?

        I have both Kun and Sterling (my differential)

        1. Y26 Royal

          I i could afford it i might! Just Aguero for me.

        2. DortmundisLove

          I’d love both but hard to do with a good team and you can only captain one anyway.

            • 1 Year

            I am tempted to captain Sterling as he could prove to be a great differential

            1. Speedu
              • 1 Year
              8 months, 20 days ago

              Sterling my captain also

        Have some options with 2FTs. Only TAA from Pool in my team now.

        A) Kane Fraser Trippier to Laca Mane Laporte -4
        B) Kane Fraser Trippier to Vardy Mane Robo/Mendy -4
        C) Kane Fraser Trippier to Wilson/King Salah Laporte -4 (So I can have funds for Wilson/King to Arnautovic for GW11)

        Could keep Trippier in B and C.

          C. Thinking Salah still Pool best attacking options.

        Hi, who will get more points in long term?
        A. Trippier
        B. Arnie

        If Trippier, anyone have plan to have 4 premium defender and go for 442?

        Cheers πŸ™‚

        Which appeals more?

        A) Salah, Maddy/Richy
        B) Mane, Stirling
