      Sterling -> Salah for a -4?

        Don't be silly

        No

        Definitely do that. Not like they haven’t played yet or anything

        Well Salah is pretty much nailed

      5. Demigod Mendy

        For the guy whose ceiling is 8 points?

        1. Fantastisk
            1 month, 4 days ago

            Do you mean 42 points?

            Last week he urinated on that ceiling

              Fool's gold. He's not going to do that every week.

          dont get rid of sterling when he is benched. whats the point?

      6. Demigod Mendy

        Laporte 15-pointer inevitable

            Evitable.

            This is the fourth game Sterling has missed. That’s almost one in every four GW.

              And yet he's the second highest scorer in the game. All this tells you is he and a decent bench player is basically essential

            2. g40steve
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Sane can cover at present.
                I have both & may look to reassess?

            3. Auboomerang

              The one positive (cope) about Sterling is the midweek fixture. If he starts that game then it's gonna be an easy decision to get rid. If he doesn't then Sterling(c) against Palace.

                Oils easily play both

                  Indeed but then there's an element of risk that I cant be arsed with.

                    True. Always a risk having him

                    I understand yes.

                    Owning Sterling is so a mix of high frustration / high reward

              2. EgyptianKing
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 4 days ago

                Even if he starts midweek, can’t he play 2 matches in a row..?

                Will he be constantly “rested” when he plays midweek?

                I understand but not agree with your point this time mate. I can agree, however, that in this specific period there are other City attacking assets who seem more nailed and a little less victims of Pep roulette, yes

              Something wrong with the official FPL site?

              In my team the players are still showing GW17 opponents?!!!!

                It was obviously Sterling would be rested in this easy fixture. Everyone that did Salah > Sterling have made complete fools of themselves.

                    These posts are extremely annoying.

                    I'd put both of my cats on it that you'd be saying the same thing about Sane if he was benched today.

                      People need to keep themselves busy so they come up with all sorts of BS. Wishful thinking.

                      Exactly this.

                      So so easy to make the good decisions after they happen.

                      If Sterling hauled today and Salah blanks, I imagine the “wooow fools the ones who did not sold Salah to get Sterling”

                        Human nature, once you know the answer your mind fills in the logic to get to it. If the answer changes, the logic changes, but we all like to think everything is logical!

                  Sterling owner, but would love a 1pt cameo to hurt the Sterling(c).

                  Sterling getting his rest ahead of the busy Xmas schedule.

                  Sterling rested again.

                  Starting to wonder why I brought him in. Think he’s only played twice since I owned him back in mid November!!

                    He’s a good pick, always a risk any city mid will be rested and rotated

                  Worst transfer I did this season.(Salah-- Sterling, GW14)

                  What's with all the kneejerk reaction on transferring out sterling for a hit? I own both Sane and Sterling and will keep sterling for almost the entire season. Why is it news that pep is going to rotate almost everyone bar probably Ederson with the squad he is got? Raz will get 0 one gw and 20 plus the next gw, imo he is a season keeper unless injured as he will probably be the top 3 point scorers at the end of the season

                  Pep: rotates squad sometimes
