    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
      • 2 Years
      11 days, 20 hours 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

        B for me

    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
      11 days, 20 hours ago

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

    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
        11 days, 20 hours ago

        B is tempting.

        1. KneejerkJoe
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 days, 20 hours 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
        11 days, 20 hours 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
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 days, 20 hours 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
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            11 days, 20 hours ago

            Everton don't look good for clean sheets.

      • jca

        6 days, 16 hours 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
      11 days, 20 hours ago

      Which striker do you prefer longterm?

      A) Arnie

      B) Murray

      C) Wilson

      (Already got Mitrovic)

      1. Demel

        Anyone know the Last Man Standing safety score this week? I'm amazed that I still appear to be in the league.

        1. Eden Wizard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          11 days, 20 hours ago

          Hazard (C) + 10 others

        2. Holmes

          Haha same I thought I was a gonna for sure

      6. Demel
        • 7 Years
        11 days, 20 hours 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
          11 days, 20 hours ago

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

          1. Demel
            • 7 Years
            11 days, 20 hours ago

            So you agree with the proposed switch?

            Kane/Ward > Kamara/Salah

            1. Differential (c)
              • 3 Years
              11 days, 20 hours ago

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

              1. Demel
                • 7 Years
                11 days, 20 hours ago

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

                1. Differential (c)
                  • 3 Years
                  11 days, 20 hours ago

                  No worries. Good teamluck!

                  1. Differential (c)

        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
          11 days, 20 hours ago

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

          1. Differential (c)
            • 3 Years
            11 days, 20 hours 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
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          11 days, 20 hours 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
            11 days, 20 hours 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
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              11 days, 20 hours 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
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 20 hours ago

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

          1. Differential (c)

        Any 1 getting KDB? thinking to swap Bilva>KDB

        1. Demel
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 20 hours 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
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            11 days, 20 hours ago

            Ok

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          11 days, 20 hours 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
          11 days, 20 hours ago

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

        4. Y26 Royal
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 20 hours ago

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

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

          • 8 Years
          11 days, 20 hours ago

          Yeah nice. Failcazette looked good vs dodgy defence.

        2. Y26 Royal
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 20 hours ago

          Or Mane instead of Salah and upgrade Diop?

          Sounds like a terrible decision.

            Easy when you've got a wildcard left

            1. Demel
              • 7 Years
              11 days, 20 hours ago

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

              1. Eden Wizard
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                11 days, 20 hours ago

              I want TAA too!

              This year’s magic bean? Kenedy?

              1. Eden Wizard

                11 days, 19 hours 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!

                  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!

                    11 days, 19 hours 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.

        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.

              Nothing worth -4 right now, Shaw & McCarthy stinking it up though

            Thoughts on this wc draft?

            Patrico
            Robertson taa Mendy alonso
            Hazard KDB salah Richarlison
            Arnie mitro

            Fodder Jimenez awb Westwood

            Mitro can become Wilson to free up some funds if need be

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

              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.

          8. NoWayJose

            11 days, 20 hours ago

            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)

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

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

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

                  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 šŸ™‚

            Which appeals more?

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