    Alonso & Robbo - the 6th & 7th highest scoreing players in the game at just 6.5 & 6.0 mill original price ... surely they are ‘lock & load’ season keepers with the added security of their great stats too ? Why would anyone sell them ?

      Alonso has gone ten games without attacking returns. I was reluctant but sold the other week.

        Expect your punishment this week 😉

          Have been for several but even if he does I don't think he'll go on enough of a run of returns to justify his price. Having watched plenty of Chelsea games he does seem to be holding on runs into tge box IMO.

            The article above - ‘630 touches in the final third for Marcos Alonso (£6.8m) this season, 99 more than any other FPL defender. The Spaniard has been sold by more than 70,000 managers this week (at the time of writing) ahead of a good fixture for Chelsea: Newcastle at Stamford Bridge. Despite having eight attacking returns this season (one goal, seven assists), his last one came in Gameweek 11 – which explains why owners are losing faith. The Magpies have scored just one goal in their last four matches, which bodes well for Alonso’s clean sheet potential in Gameweek 22.’

      Better value elsewhere

      Taa > Them both in terms of value

        Really ? Original price divided by points ?

    3. RFCSPACE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Planning to get rid of Alonso next week for TAA. Better defensive team and good attacking potential. Using the cash to upgrade further up the pitch. Have Robbo too and he's going nowhere

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Milner & Gomez say hello 😉

    4. Nomar

      It's not so much Alonso's points though, is it?

      It's the cost of him compared to the rest of your team.

      When you want big hitting mids and attackers then defence is usually the obvious area to cut back in.

      The fact that you'd rarely if ever captain him makes it easier to sacrifice him if you want to fund upgrades elsewhere.

      I've had Alonso but got rid ages ago.

      I've had Robertson since day 1 but am reluctant to ship him, though, so make of that what you will.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        That doesn’t make sense - your argument for both players should be the same ?

        The big issue is that we end up benching Dinge, AWB, Doherty etc points (I bet not many in here have had all their points) but with Robbo & Alonso we start every time, always get their points and even get the odd clean sheet or haul against the liked of City ... this hidden benefit is rarely considered

        1. Nomar
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          As others have said, Liverpool has the better defence, though, and Robertson has been getting a few assists lately whereas Alonso hasn't delivered attacking returns for ages.

          For me it was a case that I could get Doherty or Digne for £2m less at the time and be happy playing them every week.

          I used the 2m to get Hazard back, so depending on your point of view that was either money well spent or wasted.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            If you actually play Doherty and Digne every week without fail and get their points, don’t bench them against top six teams, don’t use transfers selling them after a few blanks etc., then I totally agree with you 🙂

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 9 days ago

            The thing is you say Liverpool have the better defence, Robbo is getting a few assists, no attacking returns from Alonso in 10 games etc ... but Alonso still has more points than Robbo ?

            Liverpool I think only have one more clean sheet than Chelsea, so in FPL terms is their defence that much better ?

    5. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I'll stick my neck out and say that -if you got at orginal price (big caveat I know)- the ultimate season-keeper defence is:

      Alonso Robbo TAA Doherty AWB

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        TAA hasn’t started in nearly 25% of the games, but the rest I agree.

    6. Flynniesta
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I bought Alonso for his attacking returns which aren’t happening so downgraded him to Rudiger (should’ve gone side-show Bob) & downgraded Robertson to TAA to fund the purchase of Hazard (wasn’t as happy at doing this move)

  2. RFCSPACE

    Snodgrass to Camarasa for free this week? Would be in the starting 11 this week but also cutting down the cash on my bench

    1. Hotdogs for Tea

      • 3 Years

      Adam Hopcroft
      @ahopcroft13
      Is Camarasa from Cardiff the perfect 5th midfielder?

      On pens ✔
      On set pieces ✔
      Cheap enough to bench ✔
      Good fixtures ✔

      Created 13 chances in last 6 - bettered by only 4 mids

      2 goals & 1 assist in last 5

      1. RFCSPACE

        Thanks. All upside then

      2. Lazaretti

        Is he fit to play?

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          waiting for press conference

          He was taken off in the last game because he was tired not injured

            OK thank's a lot

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      That's exactly the move I am strongly considering. I'll probably play him too.

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Currently have Snodgrass and Camarasa and am playing Cammy.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Mmm - correct choice I reckon

    3. Rohirrims
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      HUD, new, (ars), BOU, sou.

      I'll be playing him in 4 of the next 5 if he remains fit.

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      This is my next transfer

  3. Podorsky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    Will there be a press conference with Pep today. I need an update on Aguero, cannot afford to have him benched.

  4. sentz05
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 9 days ago

    How does this sound?

    Laca and Snodgrass out

    Rashford and B Silva in

    1. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not for me

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Sorry misread it as Auba for some reason.

        Yes, then.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Not B Silva, how about a cheapie like Camarasa or Brooks and use the cash elsewhere.

    2 FT and 0.7 ITB

    Anything you would do or burn a FT?

    Foster
    AWB. Trent. Digne
    Salah. Hazard. Pogba. Rich. Fanderson
    Kane. Jiminez

    Speroni. Doherty. Kamara. Bednarek

    1. fridge
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      I'm tempted by Fanderson and Kamara > Camarasa and Arnie/ Rash/ Zaha

      1. Rohirrims
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        All work, worst case look at moving speroni to a playing keeper rather than burning?

    2. Nomar
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Fandererson and Rich to Camarasa and San.

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        ** Sane **

    3. Bavarian
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      Speroni > Guaita

      1. Tsparkes10

          This.

    4. Bavarian
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 9 days ago

      If you own Guaita, would you still play AWB? or Jimenez ??

      1. Nomar
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 9 days ago

        AWB

    5. Rohirrims
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 9 days ago

      GTG

      Fabianski
      Alonso - TAA - AWB
      Brooks - Salah - Sterling (C) - Pogba - Camarasa
      Jimenez - Kane

      Patricio - Ings - Holebas - Doherty
      1 FT; 0.7 ITB

    6. Ahmed Adam
      • 1 Year

      Captain ?
      1) Salah
      2) Kane
      3) Hazard

      1. Bavarian
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Salah

      2. Tsparkes10
          2 months, 9 days ago

          Salah

        • Nomar
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 9 days ago

          I'm gambling on Hazard at home.

      3. Eytexi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 9 days ago

        Bit of a boring one:
        Camarasa or McNeil?

        1. Tsparkes10
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Cam

          • Bavarian
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 9 days ago

            Camarasa

        2. Tsparkes10
            2 months, 9 days ago

            1 FT 1.3 itb
            Fab
            Digne Alonso TAA
            Haz Sane Rich Anderson Pererya Kane Rash
            (Button, AWB, Jimi, Doh)

            A) Save FT or Pererya to Cama
            B) Capt Haz or Sane?

            1. Bavarian
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 9 days ago

              Save and Haz

              1. Tsparkes10
                  2 months, 9 days ago

                  Cheers. Finding hard to capt Haz especially after I did last gw and he blanked... may be a last minute decision

                  1. Nomar
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    Yes but Hazard is likely to haul again, it's unlikely he's suddenly going to turn into a dud overnight.

                    Got to have faith.

                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 9 days ago

                Save and Kane for captain: no evidence United defence is any better yet against a good team.

                1. Tsparkes10
                    2 months, 9 days ago

                    True but feel he may play further back and Son forward... also pens unlikely against United ;). Something tells me Sane
