    Would you play your own game if you were only 16 ahead?

    Rival has Rashford and and TAA ( I have neither) he doesn’t have Wilson.

    So which would you do?

    A: Wilson & Doherty to Rash & TAA (would need to be -8)

    B: One of the above for free

    Thanks

        Focus on your own game. What's your team? Id keep Doh this week for sure. Maybe just Wilson to Rasg

          People saying earlier that Rashford may be out for the last 2 games. So definitely wait for pressers

        save transfer I think.

          Cheers fellas. Sent that then got caught up in other stuff.

        Didn't catch the spurs game :(. Guessing Lucas didn't pass the eye test? Get rid for Redmond, JWP or Mili to allow Zaha and possibly Delu in 38?

        1. Mr Frost
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          he was lively, but spurs didn't create anything.

          Wouldn’t ditch Son, Bournemouth all over the place at the back

          hits for defenders not advisable at the best of times...I would say no.

            Thanks fellas I scrap that idea straight away and back to the drawing board !!

      • Mr Frost

        Ryan Foster
        Valery Duffy Doherty Trip Kola
        Son Eriksen Jota Mane Sterlo
        Aguero Jimenez Ings

        vs

        Lloris Boruc
        Trent Linde Pereira Duffy Tark
        Son Hazard Mane Salah H-O
        Vardy Jimenez Calvert-Lewin

        Mine is the bottom team, money for Vardy to anyone? Slightly tempted to bring in Digne or Wan Bissaka n leave Vardy in n cap Hazard. 8 points behind rival's team, who will (c) Aguero. Help appreciated.

        1. ItOnlyTook9Years

          You really need some city attack in there

          1. Mr Frost
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Vardy to Aguero (c) does seem obvious, then hope the squad out-performs my rival.

        Hi....who to captain this week?

        A...kun

        B...sterling

        Surprised to see kin socfar ahead of sterling in the poll. Why is that?

        Thanks

        1. Mr Frost
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I might do vardy to aguero (c)...

        2. ItOnlyTook9Years
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Sterling isn't in form, compared to Kun

          1. Flynny
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Guess so. And kun guess is more likely to score the crucial title winning g goals perhaps given his track record...

        3. Boberella
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Kun for me this week, but go with your gut.
          Either could haul or blank. Sterling would be a good punt if chasing

      • JJeyy
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        who scores more?
        A) Vardy and Valery
        B) Redmond and Jonny -4

        cheers.

          A

        2. Boberella
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I'd go A there

        Hi Guys, what changes are needed to my team? Have 1FT £1.2M itb
        Foster (Ryan)
        Robbo, Laporte, Doherty, Valery (Duffy)
        Son, Mane, Sterling, Jota (Hojberg)
        Kun, Jimi, (Llorente)

      • Union_Jacks
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Spurs really need that last win to secure top 4 and get some form back.

        Don’t see wholesale changes jeopardising league position just to give the UCL a better crack.

        A few changes here and there but can’t see Eriksen resting when there’s no alternative.

        Don't know what to do with TC, considering Kun this week or next against Brighton, any thoughts?

      • Bobadoba
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Vardy or Jimenez out for Long?

        (Need to raise cash).

        1. Bobadoba
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Vardy to score against City away...tricky?

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 18 days ago

            He could do it. He could easily score against Chelsea, too. Both likely to score before end of the season.

        2. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Would be mad to drop Jimenez before Fulham, IMO.

      • niloh1

        Here is my team

        Foster Ryan
        Taa, Duffy, dunk, valery, Bennett
        Salah, mane, b Silva, son, jwp
        Aguero, jimi, llorente

              • 3 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Best move?

              A) Duffy -> Shaw

              B) Eriksen & Gray -> Hazard & Shane Long (-4)

              1. Better Call Salah
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                B

                1 month, 18 days ago

                Gtg or move out Lucas?

                Lloris
                Robo Kolas Doh
                Son Lucas Jota Sterl Mane
                Jimenez Aguero
                (Foster, Val, Origi, Masina)

                Probs bring in Zaha and possibly Bilva for 38. Thoughts?

                  I would move Lucas > BSilva.

                  Currently 5th in my ML with 28 points between me and 1st, so positions are up for grabs... still have my TC too...

                  Lloris
                  Doherty Laporte Matip Yoshida
                  Son Sterling Mane
                  Aguero Jimenez Vardy

                  Foster Deulofeu Valery Romeu

                  1FT 0.1ITB

                  1. Vardy >> Zaha / Rashford / Wilson
                  2. Deulofeu >> Babel / McArthur
                  3. Something Else?

                  Thanks

                      Wait for pressers. Like Zaha as a punt. Team looks good this week though imo.

                      Def wait fir pressers but like the Babel punt.

                      Babel is firing shot like a miracle,nice punt but not too sure

                    Best defender for ONE WEEK only thats 5.1 or under?

                    I'm thinking Sokratis(BHA), Keane(BUR) or Shaw(hud) I don't fancy a Manchester united CS though.

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      No one really stands out at that price tag. Who are your other defenders?

                      1. Puyol Pants Up
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 4 Years
                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        Laporte (LEI) TAA (new) Valery (whu) Masina (che) Duffy (ars)

                        Will play: Laporte + TAA + [Duffy Replacement]

                        Next GW I'll play: Laporte (bha), TAA (WOL), Valery (HUD)

                        Which is why I only need a 1 week defender punt for Duffy 🙂

                          Late reply but play Valery instead of switching. No other standout options this week imo.

                    2. Waylander
                      • 2 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      If you're playing Valery vs HUD then surely the same reasoning would lead you to Shaw vs HUD?

                      1. Puyol Pants Up
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                        Slightly put off by Manchester United's defensive form. Also, I noticed that in the last 5 seasons. Every team that has came 20th in the league has got a result in their last home game of the season (Draw or win), maybe it's a mentality thing? To please the fans in their last premier league game at home.

                      M done with siggy with a Blank captaincy twice but definitely he is exciting to watch & have potential to haul !!!

                    Couldn't watch the game. How did my Spurs boys look tonight? Lively? Unlucky? Lucky? Knackered?

                      I would say lucky it was only 1-0. Spurs didn't create anything, Ajax should have scored again but hit the post.

                      Who are your Spurs boys? Spurs overall looked tired and lacked quality.

                      Like a bunch of journeymen.

                      Take out Son & Kane and there isn't much left. Eriksen needs to be playing with much better team-mates really. Send him to RM and he'll do a Modric.

                      Danny Rose was good, as usual. Sissoko made a difference when he came on. Otherwise nothing of note really. If Llorente is your 2nd striker at the club then what can you expect? The squad needed improvement last summer and didn't get it.

                          He'll never do a Modric. He doesn't have the ability to get rid of his marker with a single turn, or take the ball from his own third to the final third on his own. Sissoko does that for him at Spurs. Him vs the 33-year-old Modric, I will take the latter any day of the week.

                      Digne or Shaw?

                        Digne with form, Shaw with fixtures. Shaw also getting some attacking returns. In isolation Shaw looks the better pick for the last 2.

                      Sterling and Wan-bissaka.

                      should I block, and Son/Eriksen> Sterling/Kelly (-4) exactly my itb
                      or play it straight and Duffy > Digne (no-hit)
                      guessing I'm not only one in this position. Thoughts? thx

                      Team is:
                      Lloris (Gunn)
                      TAA Robbo Laporte (Benderek Cathcart)
                      Mane Eriksen Son Sterling Jota
                      Aguero Jiminez (Gray)

                      Team is in good shape but Spurs don't look like they have a lot of goals in them and son hasn't scored many lately, so thinking of ditching one or both of them. Leicester's problem is teams that park the bus, chelsea and city won't do that, so I acc think Vardy will do wel. Hazard will want to go out with a bang. United have a great couple of fixtures and pogba is a flat track bully. with all of this in mind...

                      A) Son, Eriksen & Gray to Hazard, pogba and long -4. (Have to act today as long is set to rise)
                      B) Eriksen and gray to Babel and Vardy
                      C) Eriksen and son to Hazard & Milevojevic.

                        There are better option then Vardy for last two GWs I think rashford(if fit)/ZAHA even in form Wilson/long

                      What’s the chances of my main rivals in my money leagues catching me if I lead by 102pts in one league and 83pts in the other in the 2 final GWs.? Only one has TC chip left.

                      Thoughts??

                          I’d say so - United defence worth a punt assuming he’ll play both weeks

                          That move seriously tempting especially without hit !!!

                            Duffy > Shaw gives u well balanced defender for both GWs,no need to look at to those defence then..then next GW probably jiminez>rashford/zaha then season done !!! GL

                                An alternative is Doh to Laporte.

                                    Yeah, considered that myself earlier, just can't face losing Doh before Fulham. Thanks
