    Would you downgrade one to 3.9 & upgrade another to Luiz or stick for now?

    TAA, Pereira, Digne, Doherty, AWB

    1. BOATIES FC
        5 months, 8 days ago

        I'd stick

      • theodosios

        Stick

        superb defence

      • Danno - Emre Canada
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        My exact defence now I’ve downgraded Alonos so I say stick

    2. dunas_dog

      Best player to bring in

      A Mané
      B Pogba

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Both have very good fixtures. Based on current form, I'd have to say Pogba but Mane is due a haul or two.

    3. Abra Dubravka
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Bench two of Rashford, Felipe and Camarasa...?
        (Have Pogba)

        1. The Royal Robin
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Pogba has nothing to do with the decision imho, but I'd bench Rashford and Felipe.

        2. fr3ddy
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Felipe and Camarasa

      • Edwardio
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Hi folks Mane or DB ??

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          David Bentley?

          1. Edwardio
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            lol right de bruyne

        2. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Mané

        3. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Mane. You'll at least feel better watching Mane playing up top versus KDB in midfield.

      • abaalan
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Ok some planning here, got 2ft, 0.1 itb:

        A) pogba + Kamara -> puncheon + rashfrd gw22
        Then son -> sane gw23

        B) son + Kamara -> camarasa + rashfrd gw22 or gw23
        Then deeney -> Jimenez following gw

        C) fab-> guaita/etheridge (other keeper button)

        D) no transfer gw22
        Then son + Kamara -> b.silva + Barnes gw23

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Is Brooks nailed and if so is he a good option as a 5th midfielder? Would rotate with Wan Bissaka and Kamara.

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          He's nailed but seems to get subbed off a lot 60-70 mins which frustrates me as an owner. Would rather pocket the cash and get Camarasa

          1. Kiwivillan
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            I meant fpl owner in general. I don't have him

      • The Royal Robin
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Struggling with bench order, and even considering whether I should even be benching one or two players. This is how I am currently set up:

        Allison
        TAA Digne AWB Rudiger
        Salah (C) Hazard Pogba Camarasa Deulofeu
        Kane
        (Button Jiminez Doherty Ings)

        Am I GTG or would you play either of Jimmy or Doherty If so, who would you put them ahead of?

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          It's one of those ones whatever you do will be hindsight after. Just go with gut on those

          1. The Royal Robin
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Finding it hard to have an instinct on this, you can guarantee the one I bench will score.

        2. Fantasy Gold
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Is there anything that you don’t struggle with?

        3. Boo Ya Ka Sha
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          I'd pick Jimenez over Deu/Cam. The rest is GTG.

          1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Just think that Jimenez is one of those players you don't bench/captain. He can get a goal out of nowhere and steal baps, like in the 83' against Tottenham gw20.

      • Boo Ya Ka Sha
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Any talk of Kun/Jesus? Thinking Kun will go back to 60min with more interference from Jesus after recent results. Figure Jesus will request a transfer if goes back to being completely sporadic. Unless he's recently signed a new contract?

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          If I could take a punt on player this week would be Jesus but would mean -4 and selling Jimi at 6m or FT Kane and not risking either

          1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Yeah, a -4 now then probably another -4 down the road when you take him out.

            1. Kiwivillan
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              For sure there's that problem. Jesus Aguero FPL shuffle has been nightmare past seasons

              1. Boo Ya Ka Sha
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Yup, was a victim of that last season.

          2. jtreble
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            I wouldn’t think Jesus plays at all this weekend. Have I missed any news?

      • Gudjohnsen
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 8 days ago

        Kante an option as a 5th midfielder or just stay away?

        1. Kiwivillan
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Camarasa +$$$ and more likely to score penalties and rise in price

        2. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          I'm thinking Kante myself but am also considering Neves. Maybe his goal against Liverpool might just be the kickstarter for him to emerge as a real FPL option.

          1. MINUS FOUR
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 8 days ago

            No, just no

        3. DDGs Snipped Ponytail
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Kante v Newcastle this week....Neves has City. Camarasa going to play? He's still flagged.

        4. danishdynamite
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 8 days ago

          Boring bench question

          Fabs
          Luiz / Digne / AWB / Kola
          Salah / Haz / Pogba / Fandersen
          Kane / Rashford

          Jimi / Redmond / Doherty

          Feels wrong Doh'ers being in in last place, but ...... well, I dunno. Do you?

          1. DDGs Snipped Ponytail
              5 months, 8 days ago

              I think it's fine

              1. danishdynamite
                • 8 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

            • 8 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            A) Fabianski to etheridge
            B) balbuena to bamba

            1. fr3ddy
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 8 days ago

              B

            2. Carlton_Goal
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              B. Looking like Balbuena could still be out for a little while

          3. CRO KLOPP
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Alonso Digne AWB
            Hazard Son Pogba Richarlison
            Kane Auba Jimenez
            Hamer Doherty Lovren Hojbjerg
            0.1 itb 1 FT

            A) Save
            B) Lovren and Fabianski to TAA and Foster (-4)
            C) Something else

            1. CRO KLOPP
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Fabianski is GK

            2. Kiwivillan
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              A for sure

              • 5 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Fab>Guaita only other one I would do

              1. CRO KLOPP
                • 1 Year
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Don't have pool Def cover atm

                1. Kiwivillan
                  • 5 Years
                  5 months, 8 days ago

                  Neither do I. TAA maybe next week but happy to hold off with current defensive issues

                  1. CRO KLOPP
                    • 1 Year
                    5 months, 8 days ago

                    Yes, with 2 ft I could get Salah and Trent with minus 4
                    Cheers mate and GL

            • 1 Year

            Desperate need for advice and/or opinions
            Forster - (Hart)
            Robbo - taa - Digne - Awb (Doherty/1st)
            Haz (vc) - Salah (C) - Pogba - Deloufeu (ward/3rd)
            Wilson - Kane (Success/2nd)
            2ft, 1.2itb

            My only move that I can convince myself is reasonable is Hart+ Wilson -> Guita+Barnes. Could someone think of something else to do with this useless team. Been a crappy December for me that culminated in a sane->pogba move last gw that left me with a miss out on Sanés points vs liverpool and got me a pogba who didn't do anything....

            1. Athletico Timbo
              • 8 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Wait for the Bournemouth presser before selling Wilson as he could easily get a brace v Everton. Otherwise sell Hart.

            2. Kiwivillan
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Hart>Guaita easy move

            3. Four Hit Wonder

              5 months, 8 days ago

              I don't like your GKs, and don't like the fact that you have 5 playing defenders. Look to downgrade one of them to 3.8 and look to upgrade your goalie.

          5. Aikon123
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Evening all, what are your thoughts on Sterling, Anderson and Torreira out for Salah, Fraser and a 4.2 mid. It'd be for a - 4. Thanks

            1. Syd.
              • 10 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              I would not lose Sterling

              City look to be getting a head of steam up and I can see them going on a run of high scoring games in the league

            2. Kiwivillan
              • 5 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Not with City next 3 fixtures and Anderson still great value

            3. Brosstan
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              No.

            4. Lord Tachanka
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              I can see the appeal but Sterling will explode again soon!

              I wouldn’t myself

            5. jtreble
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              I own Sterling and Salah. I suspect Sterling will outpoint Salah this weekend.

            6. Aikon123
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Thanks for the input all, my other option would be Haz out instead of Sterling if I was to go for it

          6. Lord Tachanka
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 8 days ago

            Think I might move on Ings for a few weeks. I know I should go for Barnes but I can hear the Siren call of Andy Carroll calling me!

            1. Syd.
              • 10 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Just avoid Andy Carroll

              1. Come on you Kante
                  5 months, 8 days ago

                  Avoid like the plague

              2. Carlton_Goal
                • 3 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Carroll has been pretty rubbish so far, nowhere near his best yet. Not even nailed either

            2. Stevie B
              • 8 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Is there a good chance that Lovren will start?

              1. Syd.
                • 10 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Unlikely given he went off injured on Monday night

              2. Brosstan
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                not at all. Hamstring injury, 100% out.

            3. Daniel - The Veteran
              • 9 Years
              5 months, 8 days ago

              ok, thats it, Sterlo boy in. It will be a marvelous MNF

              1. Syd.
                • 10 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Thats the spirit

                  • 9 Years

            4. Delph & Safety
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 8 days ago

              Thoughts on F Anderson and Sane out for Salah and Deulofeu?

              1. Kiwivillan
                • 5 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                Sane if plays has best fixture of all but assuming he plays and who knows who Pep picks. I'm ready to trade Sane in but still wary

              2. Revival
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                I would wait one more week before making that move

              3. DDGs Snipped Ponytail
                  5 months, 8 days ago

                  Deulofeu is bound to disappoint, I wouldn't. Any other way to get Salah in though?

                  1. Delph & Safety
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 1 Year
                    5 months, 8 days ago

                    Very difficult when I don’t want to get rid of Hazard or Kane.

                  2. Kiwivillan
                    • 5 Years
                    5 months, 8 days ago

                    Deulofeu 5.5 and 6.2ppg last 5 back playing big minutes. How can he disappoint at that price?

              4. Atters
                • 4 Years
                5 months, 8 days ago

                A) Martial and Alonso - to Salah and 4.3 def

                B) Pogba and Alonso to Salah and TAA/Digne

                Obviously feels daft to take out Pogba but don't want to leave my defence to weak

                1. DDGs Snipped Ponytail

                    Locked lineup for this week:

                    Alisson (Button)
                    Digne / AWB / Alonso / TAA (Jonny)
                    Salah (C) / Pogba / Martial / Fraser (Kante)
                    Aubameyang / Kane (Kamara)

                    Am I out of my mind for WC'd next week into this?!

                    Etheridge (Guaita)
                    Doherty / Digne / AWB / TAA (Bednarek)
                    Salah / Pogba / Hazard / Sane (Camarasa)

                    On a WC. Taking out tonight Fabianski, Lovren, Anderson, Sigurdsson, Kante and Arnautovic for Button (have Etheridge), Robertson, Ricarlison, Sané, Camarasa, Barnes or just do it tomorrow?

                        Nope. Never a suprise to me when a 4m player in FPL is just randomly dropped.

                            Rubbish. He got his shot with Hennessey injured and has 3 from 5 CS bar 3-2 win vs City and 1-0 loss to Chelsea. Hennessy social media n@zi salute in team night out photo even more reason to think he's nailed

                          Lovren, Chica to Robertson, Barnes?

                            Who not to play mate from that midfield and attack then mate?

                              Jimenez? Think City are due a clean sheet.

                          Lovren to TAA for sure, and you should probably get Chicha out too

                        Is Arnie going do we reckon?? Should I steer clear and keep Jiminez on WC and spend 0.5 elsewhere?? Help!!

                        Or even go cheap to Barnes and get Robbo??

                          I´m probably gonna do the last one. I also have the same dilemma.

                            Cheers mate. I thought I had it nailed too with him coming back to form. Damn Chinese billionaires!!! 🙁

                          Yesterday I was thinking there is no way he'd be going but after his agents comments today I feel like he might be. Feels like Payet all over again. Would steer clear for now

                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            Me too mate. Can’t tell if it’s just agent game playing to get more cash for him at WH or if he’s serious?? Do you think he could haul to prove a point this weekend though??

                              I'm not sure. Don't think West ham could even compete with the wages the chinese team would be likely to offer. Could easily haul this weekend but could be gone the next. He acts like he loves the club but not sure how genuine that is

                          I'm in the same position. Tempted to keep to see how he goes but if he looks like he's going to get in a strop it's an easy downgrade to Jimenez.

                          1. Nuno had a dream
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            Similar frank. Either he will smash it against Arsenal to prove a point or will flop if on his way out. Don’t really want to waste a transfer next week though if on a WC this week. Risky don’t you think??

                          B. I would find out how much longer Mendy is out, before i buy Sane.
