    Fabianski
    Wan Bissaka* - Robertson - TAA
    Hazard- Pogba* - Salah(C) - Brooks
    Aguero* - Vardy - Wilson

    Subs: Guaita* - Kolasinac* - Doherty* - Hojbjerg*.

    Thanks for the help

      I'm presuming you FH in 32? If so I'd honestly do a - 8 and go Pogba, Aguero to Maddison, Higuain or Arni

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'm doing -8 maybe -12 and no interest in Higuain and no room for Leicester mid and wouldn't be Maddison if were one

  2. Lignja

    sell Pogba to get Hazard?

    1. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Depends on a bit, how much value have you got tied up, how many players are you getting out this week etc.

      1. Lignja
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        got him for 8.1 so need to pay 0.3 or 4 more to get him back

    2. DrunkPhilosophy
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Depends how much would you have to pay for him when you get him back.

    3. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      If you’re not planning on getting him in for dgw32, then I’d do it.

  3. waldo666
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    A) Aguero, Rashford & Kamara to Vardy, Wilson and Barnes -4 (10 starting)

    B) A + Bednarek to Luiz/Ake -8 (11 starting)

    1. Captain Beefheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      A

        Cheers, Cap'n.

  4. Ole Trafford

    Silly to get Alonso in on FH right?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yup

    2. waldo666
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah

  5. Tsparkes10
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Team for 31 and 33 so far:

    Fab
    TAA Digne VVD
    Salah Haz FelipeA
    Wilson Vardy

    Who for last 2 places? Money no problem and any positions as don't care who I lose. Thinking 2 of King, Ake Maddison and Fraser

    1. DrunkPhilosophy
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I like Tielemans, Maddison, and Fraser

    2. Optic1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Azpi and Fraser.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Don't like Chelsea defence for their fixtures

  6. DrunkPhilosophy
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    How’s this for a FH?
    Boruc
    Robertson Azpi Rice
    Salah Mane Hazard Tielemans
    Wilson Vardy Higuaín

    If Higuain is out, will get Arnatovic and upgrade somewhere else.

    1. Captain Beefheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Good

    2. Optic1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Like.

    3. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Rather Fraser than Higuain 352

      1. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        changed tune

    4. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Rather fraser for Tielemans.

    5. Ynwalfc
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Barnes over Arnie

  7. Optic1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    About to take a -8 to bring in Maddison, Hazard and Wilson. How's she looking?

    Fabianski
    Robertson Luiz Digne
    Salah(c) Hazard Brooks Maddison
    Firmino Barnes Wilson

    Button Pogba Bennett Doherty

    Opinions welcome. Cheers

  8. ZICO SENNA
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    Would be safe to bring in Hazard and Luiz for the blank if you wanted them wouldn’t it? Did neither play at all tonight?

    Thanks guys

    1. Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah. They both didn't feature. Those are my two Chelsea players. I was a bit worried about an injury as I did an early -8 this week to beat price rises.

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Cool, still i decided as yet, but yeah that’s good that both fidn’t feature, nice one πŸ™‚

    2. Peter Ouch

      I would.
      Any news on pipita?

      1. ZICO SENNA
        • 8 Years

        Cheers man. Who is pipita? Haha

        1. Peter Ouch
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year

          Haha Higuain mate

      2. Cantwell on these things.

            Yeah you a friend of his?

  9. Kub3
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 8 days ago

    I’m seriously considering captaining Mané over Salah. However, this might just be the game where Salah goes crazy.

    1. ZICO SENNA
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I really think it’s Salah’ turn this time round, typical of FPL πŸ™‚

  10. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    7 months, 8 days ago

    Best option here for gw31/33:

    Fabianki
    TAA • Digne • Pereira • Lascelles -- Schindler
    Salah • XXX • Richarlison • XXX -- Pogba
    King • XXX -- XXX

    A: Hazard + Fraser + Vardy (-4)
    B: Hazard + Mane + Wilson (-4)
    C: Mane + Wilson + Arnie (-4)
    D: Hazard + Robbo + Arnie (-4)

    1. Bruno BaNani
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      B. No doubt!

    2. Tsparkes10

    Guys, is it possible to know if your mini league opponent is using freehit chip? My mini-league is H2H league and I always try to guess my opponents' transfer using his team value.

    1. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Mine has. 0 transfers and his team value has dropped over 1mil

    2. Optic1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Don't think so.

  12. Ole Trafford
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    This is where I’m at so far.

    Fabianski
    Robertson, Azpi, Rice
    Salah, Hazard, Mane, Fraser
    Vardy, Wilson, Arnie

    Boruc, Taylor, Barnes, 4m

    Thoughts?

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Nice

    2. jjandellis
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah same here except I have Perez for Arnie and TAA for Robbo plus my bench is slightly different

    3. BlzE_94
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Are you confident Arnie will start?

  13. Bruno BaNani
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 8 days ago

    B’mouth or Leicester defenders for gw31 and gw33?

    Leicester have more offensive qualities, but b’mouth probably the better fixtures.

    1. Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Ake.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        This

  14. VAR SH*T
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Will arnie play this gw ?

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Yep

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

        If people knew they would get him but only Pellegrini knows

    • Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Good to go -4? No WC, but all other chips in tact

      Fab
      Periera Robbo Luiz
      Salah (c) Mane Hazard Brooks
      Vardy Barnes King

      Guaita Pogba Kola AWB

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Ya

    • Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Can't decide between Ake, Maddison or King for 31 and 33. Have Vardy, Wilson, Fraser already

      1. Astronautovic
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Mad imo

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Hahaha had to read that a few times... Thought you meant you were mad

          1. Astronautovic
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Haha I didn't want to confuse you. All 3 are good options. Still i would lean towards Maddison.

            1. Tsparkes10
              • 1 Year
              7 months, 8 days ago

              Cheers. King, Fraser and Wilson feels too much but feels that secures me points? Ake I like as a dark horse and Madisson on set pieces and improving. Tricky

              1. EMBOLOFAN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                7 months, 8 days ago

                still think madds. bou have defenders out and result of that in their defence is unknown. if in doubt defer to ppg - madds beating ake

      2. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Mads

    • Astronautovic
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Should I take a hit to bring in wilson for Jim and play him instead of solanke?

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Yes

        1. Astronautovic
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Thanks peter

    • pelle9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Best pick:

      a) play westwood

      b) -4 for pogba >> fraser

      Thanks guys

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        B if you don't pogs back if you have value on him cause he won't be playing in the 33

      2. EMBOLOFAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        a if already have 11

    • Cilly Bonnolly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Salah triple captain against that Fulham defence is so tempting.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Nope

      2. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Indeed don't see any other player having such a lovely fixture till the end

        1. Pierce34
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Mane does. πŸ˜‰

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

        I wouldn't TC anyone at an away match.

        1. Cilly Bonnolly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          He scored a hat-trick away to Bournemouth in gameweek 16.

          1. Peter Ouch
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Out of the blue.
            Sure he can do it again

            1. AuFeld
              • 3 Years
              7 months, 8 days ago

              Hat-tricks at away matches aren't a norm?

        2. EMBOLOFAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          fulham home defensive record almost identical to hudds home, which is the other option

          1. EMBOLOFAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 8 days ago

            hudds away*

    • UpAndAway
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Can get to 9 this GW with 2 FT. No Vardy.

      Worth taking a hit for a defender? More than likely Adam Smith to Clyne or Daniels.

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'd take 2 for 11... What's team?

        1. UpAndAway
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Fab
          Robbo, Pereira
          Mane, Salah, Hazard
          Barnes

          Looking at Pogba to Madd and Hojbjerg to Fraser.

          Also have Docherty, A. Smith, Jiminez, AWB and Aguero.

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Them 2 and Aguero to Vardy imo if FH in 32

    • dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I know Lascelles and Higuaín potentially risks but assuming they are on wmidfielder would you get in for Sterling to get 11 playing ? Cannot be Liverpool or Bournemouth. Would be for -4

      Boruc
      TAA Lascelles Van Dijk
      Salah (c) Hazard Brooks *******
      Vardy Huguain Wilson

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Madisson

      2. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Same dilemma
        My team is identical to yours except from brooks
        Having Anderson and almiron.

        So if I do pogs to haz I will have to bench one of those if hig and lasc fit.

        Definitely dont want pogba back

    • BlzE_94

      Anyone using the triple captain chip on a United player in gw32?

      1. AuFeld
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        A lot of free hitters that week. Could be a good move.

      2. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'd use on Aguero, Sterling or Lukaku if I had option to

    • tbhogal
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      FH or not guys? ML leader 47 points ahead has played his one. Have 7 BGW players and 1FT..

      FAB (Hamer)
      ROBBO, TAA, DIGNE (Bennett, awb).
      Pogba, Son, SALAH, ANDERSON (Hojberg).
      RONDON, Aguero, Jimenez..

      1. Tsparkes10
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 8 days ago

        No. Son, Pogba, Aguero to Wilson, Maddison, Hazard. FH 32. That way you have 10 for 31 and 33. And can triple on City, Chelsea and United possibly in 32 where he will struggle to get anywhere close

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

        Waste of FH

    • Tsparkes10
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 8 days ago

      I tend to start asking questions regarding GW 35 chip strategy for example but then realise its far away and no point asking now. Time for bed. Gnight

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        I'm not good in using chips... So i'm going to copy someone's team.

        1. Tsparkes10
          • 1 Year
          7 months, 8 days ago

          Sounds fun

          1. Hy liverpool
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            The question is who is this person? Lol

    • Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 8 days ago

      Head says Wilson Lanzini
      Heart says Arnie fraser

      Fuc my head

      1. Pierce34
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 8 days ago

        Both are wrong anyway πŸ˜›

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 8 days ago

          So go with my dic Wilson and Fraser?
          Don’t wanna triple up on bournemouth attack as i have josh

          1. Tsparkes10
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 8 days ago

            Triple Bourne could bang.

          2. Pierce34
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 8 days ago

            In isolation if you offered me any combination of these four players I would go for Wilson and Fraser. I can understand the reluctance to triple up however.

        Yeah I kinda feel Lanzini will set on fire at some point - but he doesn't seem to have that many minutes under his belt yet. Arnie also not quite getting as many minutes as I'd like to start. Both got soooo much potential!!

        I'm tempted to say B in this case...

          Thoughts please:

          Fabianski
          TAA / Rice / Azpi
          Mane / Salah / Hazard / Fraser
          Vardy / Wilson / Perez

          Subs: Boruc, Chilwell, Tarkowski, Antonio

                You think its worth it? & who to sell

                    I think it is worth it but the FH chip could help alot then build up for the next blank rather* ignore what I wrote below

                  7 months, 8 days ago

                  Or activate the FH chip if you don't want hits then build up for 35

                Higuain owners.
                Just wait and hope? Did sarri say anything helpful and will they have a presser tomorrow?

                Watching 'After life' on Netflix.
                It got mixed reviews but I think its great tbf.

                  Agreed. Improved as it went on. His best tv since Extras anyway.

                  Ricky Gervais deserves mixed reviews at best imo but I'm quite looking forward to watching this. Seems quite a good premise. Does it reach Office standards?
