Boost for best Bournemouth options after Wilson return

Callum Wilson‘s (£6.3m) return from injury looks set to act as a catalyst for interest in Bournemouth options ahead of Blank Gameweek 31.

The Cherries got their first Premier League away win since October on Saturday as Wilson inspired a 2-0 victory at Huddersfield.

After losing the previous nine on the road in a row, by a combined score of 28-4, Gameweek 30 proved a confidence boost for them.

“We needed it. We really felt for the supporters in that time without an away win so we’re really pleased for them. They had a long journey, left early and we rewarded them with a good clinical performance. We were good in attack and solid in defence so it’s a really good day.” – Eddie Howe

With home fixtures confirmed in both upcoming Blank Gameweeks, we’ve done further analysis on the best Bournemouth options available right now, and the impact of Wilson’s return.

Huddersfield Town 0-2 Bournemouth

Goals: Callum Wilson (£6.3m), Ryan Fraser (£6.1m)

Assists: Fraser, Wilson

No player had more shots on target than Wilson in Bournemouth’s 2-0 win at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon. Both of his shots inside the box were accurate, with one of them handing him the first goal since his last start all the way back in Gameweek 23. The forward’s energetic display also helped him provide an assist, rounding off a complete Fantasy performance and an 11-point haul. With Newcastle coming to the Vitality Stadium in the first of the remaining two Blank Gameweeks, and Burnley after that, interest in Wilson is expected to be high.

“He’s outstanding, he has unique attributes for us with his ability to run in behind and his work ethic. He knows where the goal is and it was great to see him score, he also provided an impressive assist for Ryan in a key moment in the game with a great reverse pass. My priority is to make sure he’s fit and fine, he might be looking at the England situation but I’m pleased to see him score and play well.” – Eddie Howe

The return of Wilson also appears to have helped Ryan Fraser (£6.1m) rediscover his golden touch. At the John Smith’s Stadium, no player created more chances than Bournemouth’s diminutive left-winger. In the absence of the England international, Fraser had not registered a single attacking return since Gameweek 22. The two have now played together twice between then and Gameweek 30, and Fraser has two goals and two assists in those matches, one of each coming at Huddersfield. Those wanting to invest in the Bournemouth attack over the Blank Gameweeks with more space in midfield than among the forwards should seriously consider Fraser now that Wilson is back in the side.

“That’s a prime example of our performance, it’s a really nice passage of play – the interchange of passes (between Fraser and Wilson) were excellent to see. It’s the kind of goal we scored early in the season, the team has been hit with injuries but it’s great to see that fluency back today.” – Eddie Howe

Those looking to sign Fraser might just want to wait until the next pre-match press conference for Bournemouth though. The Scottish international was able to complete the 90 minutes in West Yorkshire but did take a few heavy hits. Meanwhile, David Brooks (£5.1m), making his second start in a row since coming back from injury, did have to be replaced by Dominic Solanke (£5.0m), but Howe believes he will be okay.

“David Brooks was fine he was just very fatigued. Ryan took a couple of nasty tackles. We hope there are no ill-effects from that.” – Eddie Howe

Josh King (£6.5m) should not be overlooked too casually as he had more goal attempts than any other player at Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon, although fewer in the box than Wilson. The Norwegian did not register any attacking returns in Gameweek 30 but has scored in three of his last four at the Vitality Stadium.

There were other boosts for Bournemouth as they had Jefferson Lerma (£4.5m) back in central midfield after serving a two-match suspension. Having him in the side in the Blank Gameweeks should help the Cherries live up to their potential against Newcastle and Burnley.

“It’s a great boost to have Jeff back. Whenever he has been missing this season we have felt that absence. He is a real physical presence for us. I think he’s been excellent. He is another player who has come into the Premier League, improved, and is learning with every game. Naturally, he plays his way and I don’t think he’s changed that. He had been unfortunate with a few of his yellow cards.” – Eddie Howe

In defence, Chris Mepham (£4.5m) appears to be growing into the side with each passing Gameweek. Despite an uncertain first start against Wolves in Gameweek 27, he has looked a lot more assured as he fills in for long-term absentee Steve Cook (£4.4m). As interest in Bournemouth defensive assets grows, the former Brentford man is one of the nailed-on options.

“It has been really good early signs for Chris. He has attacked it really well so far. Mentally he has shown real maturity and hasn’t been fazed by the occasions and the games. I have been really pleased with him and I see signs of a leader in there as well, which is a great sign for the future.” – Eddie Howe

Meanwhile, it there was an eighth start in a row for Artur Boruc (£4.0m) in the Bournemouth goal, continuing his potential for those who are playing the Free Hit in Gameweek 31. The clean sheet recorded at Huddersfield was the first on the road since Gameweek 10, but in home matches, there is plenty to encourage investment in the Bournemouth back-line. In their last four at the Vitality Stadium, the Cherries have conceded just twice.

Elsewhere in the defence, Nathan Aké (£5.0m) continues to be an ever-present although is slightly dearer. The full-back spots don’t look quite so settled. Charlie Daniels (£4.1m) has started the last two in a row, but they are the only Premier League matches in the last nine Gameweeks that he featured from the beginning. Fellow left-back Diego Rico (£4.1m) has started just once in that time. On the other flank, Nathaniel Clyne (£4.4m) started the three matches prior to Gameweek 30, but Adam Smith (£4.3m) was deployed on the right against Huddersfield. He looks unlikely to be involved against Newcastle, after coming off with a hamstring injury.

“Adam Smith said he felt his hamstring very early in the game. Looks like he might be out for a few weeks.” – Eddie Howe

Huddersfield’s credentials were dealt another blow in their defeat to Bournemouth. While the Cherries were much improved with Wilson back, it says all Fantasy managers need to know that the Terriers both blanked offensively and conceded twice at home to a side that had been so poor away from home.

Jan Siewert’s men had just two shots in Bournemouth’s penalty box all afternoon, and only one of them was on target. Meanwhile, it did not take too much from the Cherries to break Huddersfield down, who conceded 50% of the shots on target that they faced.

Huddersfield Town XI (4-3-1-2): Lössl; Durm, Schindler, Zanka, Bacuna; Mooy, Stanković, Billing (Löwe 45′); Pritchard; Mounié (Grant 61′), Kachunga (Rowe 76′).

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Boruc; Daniels, Aké, Mepham, A Smith (Clyne 44′); Fraser, Surman, Lerma, Brooks (Solanke 65′); King (Mousset 90+1′), Wilson.

      yes

    2. Ghost Gooner

      Yes if you get some monster scores. You'll have to pick well though

      I was around 350k, after just one week with a sterling (C),
      I am 170k now.
      So yes it is possible.

      nail GW32 and get through 31+33 blanks unscathed and you could be well on track

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

    Which teams are guaranteed to have fixture in both gw 31 and 33? Thanks in advance. It will be really helpful if anyone can give me the link of the relevant article.

    1. Kemosabe

      thanks man

  3. Ruinenlust
    • 1 Year

    How did Wilson rise? He was nowhere near close to 100% when I checked

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Eddie Howe edited the numbers to betray us 😛

  4. b91jh
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    1)
    A. Sterling, Rashford -> Hazard, Wilson (-4)
    or
    B. Rashford, Kamara -> Wilson, Barnes/Rondon (-4)
    ?

    Seems points are dried up for Rashford. Fixtures doesn't look easy until GW36 and Lukaku diverse the returns away.

    2) Worth bringing in Rice or other WHM defense against HUD with another -4? (= -8 this week) Could equal to a 2-pointer if they could get a clean sheet, which they should.

    Repost for being last

    Any hidden gems in midfield for GW 31 ?
    Has Pogba, Mane, Salah, Hazard , Mcnei.

    Out of liverpool and leicester options

    1) Brooks
    2) Fraser
    3) Pedro
    4) William
    5) Others hidden gems ?

        To be serious, Almiron, Lanzini could be great differentials.

    2. Amey

      Lanzini

    3. Ghost Gooner

    I'm going to settle for this team with (-4):
    Fabs
    Robbo,Clyne, Periera
    Mane, Hazard,Salah©, Fraser
    Higuain, Vardy,Barnes

    Hamer, Doherty,Awb,Jota

    What do you guys think ??
    I like the look of the team. Hopefully will get a Non-FH team in FFS cup to compete with 🙂

    1. True Deadzoner
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Great team for blank gw. Higuain and Hazard is no need, Chelsea are useless
      First round I knocked out a former winner MCH
      Second round I beated a team 3k OR rank 🙂

      1. Amey
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Thank you 🙂
        Agreed with Hazard part. But think with high ownership he could be a good shield so ..
        I also got lucky this gw with Raz © & knocked out 221 OR manager.
        Good Luck to you !

        1. True Deadzoner

          wow 😯

  7. Tube!!

    1FT....Jimi > Wilson or this and Doherty > Azpil for -4 which will give me a full 11.

    Fab
    TAA Pereira
    Brooks Salah Mane Hazard
    Higuain Vardy

    Button. Jimenez. Camarasa. AWB. Doherty. Lindelof.

    Thanks for the help!

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 3 Years

      Yeah take the hit

  8. coopsxx
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I have 2 free transfers... what happens if I use my free hit chip?

    Will I lose my free transfers or carry them over to the next.

    If I lose them, can I use them first, then use the free hit chip?

    1. Albrightondknight
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Rules say team returns to what it was at START of GW. So
      the 2FTs are wiped out when using FH.
      Also you will only have 1ft in 32

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      you lose the FT

      nope

  9. Srv210
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    going without a hammers attacker against huddersfield seems like a bad decision on paper...I was keen on arnie before his reduced minutes but now I feel like maybe fraser will be a better pick with wilson too

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I'm avoiding them. They are sh.t atm

      1. Srv210
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        yeah looks like it....hot and cold form and no consistent attacker

      2. Srv210
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        although i'm also considering sigurdsson after seeing chelsea against wolves

        1. Amey
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Siggy is intriguing option. I don't have a attacking spot left otherwise would have considered him

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      no focal point in their attack means it wont be an issue to avoid their attack and they will be against Chelsea in GW33 anyway

    3. EMBOLOFAN
      3 months, 8 days ago

      lossl tc

    4. jia you jia you
      • 2 Years

      they dont interest me in the slightest, much prefer BOU attackers

  10. jia you jia you
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Locked and loaded, hopefully will get away with this merry bunch, just want 31 over and done with 🙂
    Alisson
    Robertson / Luiz / Rice / *Lascelles
    Mane / Hazard
    Vardy / Rondon / DCL
    (Speroni, Sterling, Pogba, Son, AWB)

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      main areas are covered, so not really an issue

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years

        hopefully mate, cheers!

    2. jamesterz
      • 1 Year

      Looks good mate, I like that you arent handicapping yourself with shite like fanderson for the next couple weeks as well.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers, yeah, need to be more careful than most without a wildcard. But so glad I played my wildcard when I did as it has worked out very well apart from one horrible GW!

  11. the german
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Bednarek-clyne?

  12. jamesterz
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Just having a little plan ahead, by the time GW34 rolls around will we know who will have doubles in GW35 does anyone know? Just trying to work out when best to use my wildcard. If so will use wildcard 34 and possibly bench boost 35!

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      we will hopefully know before GW32 deadline

      1. jamesterz
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        cheers mate, have you got a chip strategy in mind for the rest of the season?

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          not yet decided, depends on fixtures announcement

          as of now, it looks like Fh32, WC34

  13. Klein
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    This has probably been discussed before but what are people doing with arnir?
    Arnie to wilson sounds great but with the blank gw its crazy

    1. jamesterz
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Wilson playing the blank gw as well mate but its a tough one. Arnie could be good against HUD just unknown how many minutes he will get

      1. Klein
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah. Problem is i will have 9 or 10 players for blank. Doing arnie to wilson would mean one less bgw player

    2. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Just leave him there imo as you will not have enough players starting. He could get something even from the bench. I would do Son+Speroni>Fraser+Boruc 2FT.

  14. St. Joseph
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Why FH 32 is better than TC 32 (kun/sterling)?

    1. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      You can have many players playing two games is the simplest answer I can think of 🙂

      1. Klein
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        This

      2. St. Joseph
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Then your DGW 32 players will be blank in 33 if im not mistaken?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Most of them. With FH32, not an issue.

          1. St. Joseph
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            So it will be back in our GW31 team right?

            The GW 31 mostly consists of chelsea / city (benched) / pogbas / wolves / sons

            Is there any clear announcement who will be blank 33 yet?

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              After GW31, Man City probably among others.
              Don't think many will keep Son and even the City/Wolves.

        2. sunzip14
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          FH 32 is being mostly done because you already have bgw 31 and 33 covered by current team. So, do not understand what you mean by DGW 32 players blanking 33 as it is a FH team.

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      GW31 and GW33 are blanks.
      TC32 can obviously be great

      1. St. Joseph
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        This is the answer I'm looking for..

  15. ddfc
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Current GW31 setup:

    Fabianski
    VVD Robertson
    Salah Hazard Brooks Snodgrass
    King Vardy

    Bench: Boruc Pogba Doherty Jimenez

    0 FT, 2.2 ITB

    For Sale: AWB Dunk [maybe Jimenez]

    Best replacements for the above, would need to take a hit for a transfer, is there anything worth it??

    Thanks.

    1. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Get 1 Leicester defender or the obvious one would be Wilson in place of Jimenez if you are ready to lose him.

  16. Lingard’s Shin Guards
    3 months, 8 days ago

    RP.
    Any advice here? Have 1 ft and the plan was always to do Aguero, Son -> Higuain, Haz (-4)

    Fabianksi
    Robbo TAA Digne
    Salah ____ Rich Westwood
    ____ Vardy Barnes

    Begovic Pogba AWB Bennett (1.1m itb)

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Good transfer's.
      I'd look @ Wilson too. Bournemouth attack could be great to have over next few fixtures

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Looks good if you think Chelsea smash Everton.

    3. No Mo Salah
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      two che players is a bit too many for me I'd suggest haz/wilson combo

  17. Costa Nostra
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    This has been a very mediocre season for me so far..didn’t qualify for any of the cups even! But I’m very happy to still be alive in LMS somehow. Thanks to TorresMagic for running literally the only competition keeping me interested. Thanks!!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Cheers, mediocre 2nd half of the season for me too.

      1. Costa Nostra
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I’m very worried about this coming week. I’ve been wanting to take a hit or two but have not simply because I’m afraid of getting knocked out of LMS! I will only have 8 this week after my free move. Hope it will be enough!

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I'd take a hit or 2. If the replacement scores 5, you are ahead and get another GW33 player.

          1. Costa Nostra
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Hrmmm....the only player I’d even want that I don’t have is Higuain...and that’s kinda a crapshoot

            1. TorresMagic™
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Fair enough, think you are giving a headstart playing 8 even if others take hits.

  18. Dynamic Duos
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Any good ?

    Boruc
    TAA VVD Luiz
    Salah Hazard Anderson Brooks
    Barnes Higuain Wilson

    Periera

    1. Amey

      Bragging with 12 players ??
      😛

      Good team mate.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        No it is costing me a -4 , cheers though

  19. Rocky.007
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Already have 11 for GW 31.
    But Anderson to Fraser for a hit is very tempting now.
    Anderson looks awful before and now even got subbed early.
    Any thoughts?

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Keep for now & reassess in gw 33 FT

  20. Max City
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Which one would you keep at BGW31:

    Aguero
    Pogba
    Jimenez

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The ones you want in GW32 and have the most profit in.

  21. SomeoneKnows
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Fabianski
    Robertson, TAA, XXXXX
    Salah, Hazard, Madisson, FAnders, Hayden
    Higuain, Vardy

    I plan to FH32 and WC34 and will be taking a -4 hit, so who should I bring in for GW31&33 if my budget is 5.9 mil?

    A) David Luiz
    B) Ake
    C) Pereira
    D) Other Ideas

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A

      A

  22. Whats the Mata?
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Which option looks the best for gw31 and gw33?

    A. Vardy + Fraser
    or
    B. Wilson + Maddison/H. Barnes
    or
    C. Wilson + Fraser
    or
    D. Vardy + Maddison/H. Barnes

    Cheers 😉

    1. Amey

      I've gone for A

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers mate. Waiting for concrete news on TAA

    2. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A, because Vardy has Hudds

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Fair enough, cheers

    What would you do with this lot?

    Fab (Pat)
    Pereira TAA Schindler (Doherty AWB)
    Salah Anderson (Pogba Son Sterling)
    Higuain Barnes (Jimmy)

    1 FT, 0.6 in bank

    Cheers.

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Pogba+Son+Raz >> Mane+Hazard+Maddison/Fraser

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers, hope for the best with Anderson or lose for a hit?

        1. Amey
          3 months, 8 days ago

          I'd hold for Hudds.
          Every team scoring against them. Reassess with gw 33 FT imo.
          Can be extra body with 2 pointer nonetheless

    2. Whats the Mata?
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Sterling Son Jimmy to Wilson/Vardy, Hazard and Barnes/Fraser/Maddison (-8)

      The -8 will anyway repay you as it is technically a -2, -2 and those players play in 33

      1. Whats the Mata?
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Didnt notice you only had 2 pool players.

        Son Raz Jimmy to Mane Wilson Haz probably.
        Or could keep Son as he has a chance of a fixture in 33 and sell Pogba instead

      2. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah, would make 11 but a few weak players.

        1. Whats the Mata?
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Haz and one of Wilson/Vardy will be template anyway, you'll have to end up getting them if you wanna play safe.

    3. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A) Son+Jimmy> Mane+Rondon (affordable?)
      B) Son+Doherty> Mane+Daniels

      1. TorresMagic™

      why are you asking for help if you have already made transfers?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        More transfers to make 🙁

    7. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The big issue is the 31 players you already have ... Periera v Chelsea, TAA playing midweek (and maybe injured?), Schindler away to WHU, Anderson not starting .... seriously now, I am not sure a few hits solves your problems ?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Pereira plays Burnley. Will keep an eye out regarding TAA, have given up on Schindler, might lose Anderson for a hit. Might need a -12 🙁

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Sorry, read him as Digne, always mix those two up.

          You are in a tough place and yes maybe you just need to take a huge hit and be done with it, or even ignore 31, hits in 32 and FH33? I would not discount using chips in a different manner to that which you have planned.

          Midweek injuries could make it worse, so you need to hold back a few days, as you know.

          Good luck whatever you chose 🙂

            Cheers, have made a mess of the last 6 GWsdue to some distractions and very bad management 🙁

              I guessed as much

  24. No Mo Salah

    3 months, 8 days ago

    Hey lads, opinions are welcome on this move:
    a. sterling -> haz
    b. sterling -> fraser

    both moves are for a hit to allow 10 players in 31 thx !

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A for monster ceiling

    2. sunzip14
      • 2 Years

      A

  25. davies
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    How does this look for the blank?

    Fabianski
    Robertson Azpi TAA
    Salah (c) Hazard Maddison Brooks Snodgrass
    Higuain Rondon

    1. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Good. Only lack would be Vardy/Wilson. Any hits taken?

      1. davies
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        -8 mate but confident it’ll repay itself over the two blanks

        Will get one/both for 33 if Rondon blanks or Aguero drops

  26. HIT ME!
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    For DGW32, who would you exclude out of these 4 strikers:
    A) Aguero
    B) Higuain
    C) Rashford
    D) Jimenez

    1. Amey
      3 months, 8 days ago

      B & C

    2. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      CD if AB both affordable. Or else, BD

  27. wernerhedgehog
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    How important is Vardy next GW. Also have Barnes and Higuain

    Brooks + Vardy
    or
    Fraser + Wilson

  28. Christina.
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    So it was the best thing after all to sell Jimenez, Rashford and Pogba, even though you would lose TV.

    lol

    1. True Deadzoner
      • 7 Years

      Rash is finished

      1. Christina.

        I sold him ages ago.

  29. ColdRainyNIght

    3 months, 8 days ago

    Should we stick with Pogba? He looked completely out of form yet again, he was not dangerous and got yellow card again. What are the best Man Utd options now? They seem to fail to keep a clean sheet, but Diego Dalot is playing in the front three. With the strikers there is also a debate whether it is inform but overpriced Lukaku or Rashford who played a horrible match vs Arsenal

  30. Legend of Rosický
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Best Salahless Captain option for 31?
    A) Mane
    B) Hazard
    C) Vardy
    D) Wilson

    1. sunzip14
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I think I am going with Mane or Hazard. Probably end up with (M)ane
