    Think I have my mind set on Shaqiri as a replacement for Maddison.
    Been looking at Liverpool forums and fan accounts and they all want/expect him to start after being excluded from the CL squad.

      For one game yeah. I did the transfer already. But for some reason kloop dosnt give him enough starts. So for long term noooo

      1. BenDavies
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Long term he's nowhere near my squad. But the Maddison injury has left me with essentially a one week punt to make considering the IB. Shaqiri should start, and he's explosive. When he plays he normally does something.

      I looked at him and its another transfer waiting to happen. Could do without another headache for the squad

    Imagine the chaos if liv and ful end up with 0-0 draw

    1. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Better yet 1-1 and Mitro scoring. That'd be something.

      1. Klein
        • 3 Years

        Lol this

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      just cannot see that happening. but I could see a quiet 2-0 win with someone irrelevant scoring like Lovren and Winjaldum. Salah assist barely appeases his owners and Mane blanks completely.

    Who is the bigger fraud?

    A) Fabinho
    B) Fred

    1. _figu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Close race. Haven't seen much of Fabinho. Fred as been very poor.

      1. noquarternt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Just remember on here when Liverpool signed Fab people were convinced he was the final cog for them to win the league. Baffling.

    2. Holmes
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Mitrovic

    3. Dr. Rog

      best summer signing was Torreira by some distance. improved Arsenal by 10% and is only 22.

      1. _figu
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Brooks has been very impressive as well. Great scouting from Bournemouth.

      2. noquarternt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        The sad thing is, everyone already knew that's the only type of position Arsenal needed. Except Wenger.

        Torreira is excellent as well, he makes Xhaka look like a quality midfielder. Can see why Emery is happy to let Ramsey go if I'm honest.

    4. Mysterion

        Neither, it's been 3 months

          They'll both be at Rayo Vallencano with Bebe and Gael Kakuta next season.

          This . The level of condemnation a player receives on here in the short term is astounding. Everyone was ready to throw Salah in the garbage a few weeks ago as well.

        Far, far too early to write off either, but Fabinho is an excellent player, just needs time to adjust.

      Maddison injury news just after everyone's made their early move to ship out Mitrovic and save 0.1m is noice. Could use all the help.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        And Mitro hasn't even dropped yet. Well I would've taken him out for a hit anyway.

      Completely stuck this week on whether to bench Jiminez or Barkley. I can envisage a return from both.

        I think the major part of your team is sorted. Shaq could be explosive but he's just not feasible long term.

          Agree re the Shaq point. I would save.

      Presuming Richarlison is GTG, how to enable Mitro and Maddison to Arnie and Richarlison?

      Alonso > Luiz or Rudiger; or
      Mendy > Stones or Laporte?

      Or one of the above to Duffy?

      1. Klein

        B to laporte for me

    16. El Lobito
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Seriously considering Kun > Auba and captaining him while everyone frets about Liverpool. Reasons: Kun 's recent record against the big six sides is poor as is his record v Utd of late. Second, his away form is not good and certainly not captain-material. Only plumish fixture is Bournemouth at home. Auba's fixtures are not as hard as they first appear. Spurs and Utd have leaky defences. Thoughts?

      1. SweeSwee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        If you’re getting rid of Kun I’d think it’s more worth while investing in midfield (Sterling, Salah, Hazard) and getting a second mid-price forward.

        1. El Lobito
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Cheers, food for thought. Auba looking good though.

      2. Demigod Mendy
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Sold Auba this week.

        Reasons? Emery constantly plays him reverse OOP which is not his best position. As someone who has watched and owned him this season, I would like to admit I've been kind of lucky with his at times (goals against Leicester off the bench and the goal against Palace). The fact that Emery prefers benching him instead of Laca and constantly takes him off early is a pain. Auba was taken off vs Liverpool when they were chasing the game. IMO Auba is their best player but clearly the manager rates Lace ahead of him. The day I see Auba starting as the lone striker, I'll be the first one to pounce on him 'again'.

    17. SweeSwee

      4. DT42
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        I had planned to switch Sterling for Salah this week, just for 1-2 weeks. Is it still a good move?

        With 2FT and 0.3 itb would you do;
        A. Sterling and Mitro > Salah and Sucess
        B. Sterling, Mitro and Rui > Salah, 4.0 GK and Ings (-4pts)
        C. Sterling, Mitro and Maddy > Salah, Barkley and Ings (-4pts)
        D. Mitro to Wilson/Zaha (and hope captain Mane is enough)

        I’m leaning towards C after Maddy news.

        Help!

        Fabs. Rui.
        TAA. Mendy. Doherty. Yedlin. Bennett.
        Haz. Mane. Sterling. Maddy. Kayal.
        Kun. Arnie. Mitro

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Selling Sterling seems risky given his current form, but I understand the Salah(c) fear this week.

          Maddy out is a priority, so either Maddy -> Anderson/Barkley and save a FT, or Maddy & Sterling -> Salah(c) & Brooks (if doable)

      5. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Best option here? Planning to WC in GW16 so only 4 weeks to consider

        Maddison ->

        A) Milner
        B) Brooks

        Milner has great fixtures so would be hoping for plenty of LIV goals and 1-2 pens - plus he has great underlying BPS so any attacking returns will likely mean bonus.

        Brooks leaves enough cash to do Kamara -> Jimenez next week, who rotates really well with Brooks over the next 4 (new, HUD, car, HUD), but I'm a little worried about his minutes with Stanislas, King, Wilson, Fraser and Brooks competing for 4 spots.

        Ederson
        Alonso, Mendy, TAA, Balbuena
        Salah, Hazard, Richarlison, Maddison*
        Aguero, Arnie

        Stek, Doherty, Kamara, Hudson
        Bank 0.0m, 1FT

        1. Jinswick
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          I meant to add, my selling value for Maddison is 6.7m and the gift that keeps on giving (Hudson-Odoi) means I'm already maxed on CHE players, i.e. I can't get Barkley/Willian

          1. jon.terry.tfh
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            Definitely not Milner. Not sold on Brook's minutes either. Can you look elsewhere, preferably someone more nailed on? Maybe Pererya?

            1. Jinswick
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 9 days ago

              That was my initial thoughts on Milner too, but his PPM and XGi are actually really good in that price range. Salah and Mane are players that win penalties too.

              If Watford's fixtures weren't so bad I'd be all over him, but (sou, LIV, lei, MCY) just looks too tricky.

        2. Dr. Rog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          if you have a wildcard you have the luxury of wildly punting on the likes of shaq, martial whatever
          by wk16 the template will be markedly different - Liverpool will be jettisoned, Kane/Eirksen/Ozil/Laca will be in vogue.
          wouldnt stress just do whatever you think will maximise points in any given week (and/or team value) knowing that you can fix any damage later

          1. Jinswick
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            True, but with no cash I can't afford any of Martial, Shaq, Anderson etc, which I probably would go for. Agreed about GW16 - if Spurs and Arsenal are firing by then I'll be loading up.

            Leaning to the first one as I could see pool putting 7 past fulham

              Probably B, but hard to go without Arnie

              How about Arnie and a non West Ham mid.
              Don't know if double up the attack is the way to go despite the fixtures.

                  Cheers! Any suggestions? Would have 7.2. Anderson looks like the best option to me. Not against doubling up on west ham

              Had a very bad week so been licking my wounds and planning ahead to GW16 fixtures swing for Ars and Spurs. Decided to target just Laca and Trippier. Not many moves to get me to this.
              It is mostly funded by Salah to Sterling after this week.
              Mainly 442 with Fraser but could be 532 with Bennett

              Fab

              Alonso Mendy Trippier Robertson

              Hazard Sterling Mane Fraser

              Laca Arnie

              Hamer Bennett Stephens Kamara

                1 month, 9 days ago

                Moves would be

                Salah > Sterling
                Iheanacho > Kamara
                Ederson > Fab
                Chilwell > Trippier
                Wilson > Laca

                    Don’t understand why you would lose Salah this week

                      I meant Salah gone after this week against Ful.
                      So what you think of the rest?

                          1 month, 9 days ago

                          Got it. Looks good. Agree with you that there aren’t any players on arsenal or spurs that I’d want other than Laca and trippier

                            Well Auba but he costs a bit more and would want to be starting every game at that price. Thanks for replies.

                      Not sure about losing that lot given current fixtures

                        It's gradual about 1 a week over the next 5 weeks. Still a bad idea?
                        Said I would not sell Salah but really want Sterling pretty soon.
                        I can also just go
                        Ihenanacho to Kamara
                        And Mane to Sterling and keep Salah but the cash from Salah gives more balance.

                          I think so. The players you’re losing all have decent fixtures for the next 4 so I’d be looking to keep most for that. I’m planning something similar to you but with a WC in GW16. If you’ve already used yours I’d definitely keep Salah & Mane for the next 4. No rush for Spurs/Arsenal assets given fixtures so reassess in a few weeks.

                            Cheers thanks again.
                            And that was my call a week or 2 ago that with the Pool fixtures I would go Salah + Mane rather that Salah + City mid.
                            Salah Mane and Sterling would be great but got Haz too and the pricey defenders so it don't work. Gotta make a call.
                            Patience and sticking to the plan might be the way to go but I got the Sterling fear - killing me in at least one ML.

                          Should be better than average this week. If Mane goes mad it could hurt apart from that should be all good.

                            cheers buddy. Hoping a goal fest from Salah & Mane so you can bounce back from last week's not so good week.

                    0.0 ITB have Maddison. Want Richarlison long term but 0 free transfers so I'll probably be priced out if I wait, would you do the Richarlison move for -4?

                      keep. there is no indication of richarlison or Maddison price changes yet here.
