    Robertson over TAA on wildcard (and thus not being able to afford Laporte) - the worst FPL decision I’ve ever made in terms of outcome.

    Minimum 40 points impact 😮

      TAA has been class these past gameweeks

      1. g40steve

        One of the best points per £ going.

        I chose to get Sane (Hazard out) & TC in gw 25 instead of Aguero (Auba out) 😕
        Cost me 100 points around 3 gw's 🙁
        Still recovering from that blow.

        I feel you. That sounds similar to me getting Monreal ahead of TAA in order to get Firmino as my 3rd Pool player from GW36 onwards. Worked out nicely ... not.

        Yeah definitely and I clearly remember weighing up Robbo & Duffy vs Laporte & TAA.

      • bigbudgie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Harsh on yourself, considering Robbo is the highest scoring defender in the game

      • Max City
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Getting Dunk - Ryan on WC DGW34, then sell them both for Yoshida and Foster GW35..

        cost me 12 points on that GW35 alone

      • TheDragon
        • 1 Year
        12 days, 7 hours ago

        Robbo & Shaw vs TAA & Laporte cost me 19 points last game week!!

      Playing h2h, rival has Salah (C) but no Kun. I have Mane and Kun.

      What is better option?
      A. Replace Mane with Salah for free and C Salah.
      B. Keep Mane and C Kun

      Thanks 🙂

        Depends if you think the rest of your team is better than his. If yes, A sounds like the right decision to block his massive Salah differential. Otherwise you should gamble on Agüero outscoring Salah.

      Laporte a better bet than Kompany in final GW?

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        12 days, 8 hours ago

        Yup, Laporte is the man to have. Definitely getting him in.

        I'm going for Bilva or a City def in 38. If I opt for a def it will be Laporte or Walker for me.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Walker - very interesting shout. Cheers.

            You think? I would def go Laporte....

            12 days, 6 hours ago

            Laporte flavour of the month and for good reason but Walker has been passing the eye test, has an assist or 2 in him and compares well for bps.

        Southampton fans around here,
        Will Yoshida start ??

        Have Defense of
        Robbo* Taa Valery Yoshida* Doherty
        & Don't want to do a Defender transfer atm at least.

        Is it worth it to replace Robbo for someone for a hit ?? No budget limitations !!

        Thank you !!

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          12 days, 7 hours ago

          If Robbo is out I will either have to forego my Brooks to Redmond plan or decide if Laporte (-4) outscores Doherty this GW. Really hard to justify a hit for a defender this GW.

          In terms of Soton I suspect the gaffer will want to go back to his strongest XI and sign out with a win.

          1. Amey
              12 days, 7 hours ago

              Yep
              I have lined up Midfielder to Redmond transfer for sure.
              Double Southampton Defense would be too much though. Or should i leave it as it is ??

              Taa Valery Yoshida/Doherty

            12 days, 7 hours ago

            If you have nothing to lose id roll the dice with Kompany and hope he scores another goal.

            1. Amey
                12 days, 7 hours ago

                Cheers.
                Only ML, 20 points ahead so fine.
                Kompony is a big match player for sure. Good call
                Thank you Karan 🙂

            Ederson (Foster)

            TAA Laporte Doherty (Yoshida, Duffy)

            Eriksen Mane Martial Doucoure (Son)

            Firmino Jimenez Vardy

            2FT; 0.2m itb

            Thinking of doing Eriksen Firmino >> Sterling Wilson
            will give me 0.2m itb

            Good move?

            1. ritzyd
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              12 days, 7 hours ago

              Looks a great move

              1. ritzyd

                • 1 Year
                12 days, 7 hours ago

                Could also do Son/Firmino to Sterling/Long?

                1. Max City
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  12 days, 7 hours ago

                  just worry Firmino will play and score plenty of points once I sell him lol..

                  Like I did on all my other players.. haha

                2. Max City
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  12 days, 7 hours ago

                  If I do Son >> Sterling then I can have Mitrovic/Rondon/Perez/King for Firmino

          4. Rushford
            • 1 Year
            12 days, 7 hours ago

            Foster

            Doherty TAA Valery

            Sterling Salah Son* JWP Deulofeu

            Aguero Jimenez

            Lloris Gray Duffy Dunk

            2FT

            What to do here?

            A) Son + Doherty -> Laporte + Redmond

            B) Son + Doherty -> Bsilva + Bertrand/Shaw

            C) Son + Doherty + Jimenez -> Mane + Ings/Long + Shaw (-4)

            1. Slitherene

            Son* Sterling Jota Redmond Mane
            Kun Jimenez Rashford

            2 FT and 0.2 ITB

            Son and Jota/Jimenez to ...... ?

              Many good options.. Lucas, Townsend, Babel, B.Silva in midfield. Arnie, Wilson, Rondon, Zaha up front. I'd be most tempted by Lucas and Arnie.

                • 3 Years

                I don't see a depleted and tired Spurs side doing well against a bang in form Everton with 6 out of the last 7 clean sheets..? What am I missing?

              Try to get in Hazard? Won’t be able to stretch it to Salah....

                • 3 Years
                12 days, 7 hours ago

                Can you afford Son + Jimi > Haz + Rondon?

                are you sure Hazard will play if Chelsea get through to the EL cup final?

                    Ah, yes, for some reason I thought it was much closer

            • 3 Years
            12 days, 7 hours ago

            Plan was to do Son & Jim to B.Silva & Zaha before Suarez decided to start kicking Robbo.

            If Robbo isn't for for the weekend how about these moves?
            Robbo & Son to TAA & B.Silva for free.

            Will have to start one out of Jimenez or Jota.
            Surely not worth selling them for a hit?

            1. Amey
                12 days, 7 hours ago

                Taa + Bilva & start Jota
                That's what I'd do

                  Yeah thats what I was thinking too.
                  These injuries and suspensions are just making my team weaker.

                  Cant go without TAA now he's too highly owned.
                  They just kept a CS against Barca and he's assisting for fun.

                        They are too good mate.
                        We dont have that kind of quality and literally need to change more than half of our squad.
                        Think we will need to wait for atleast 2-3 years before we can to their level.

                            Yeah.
                            Hopefully the summer transfers are better now.

                        Nothing confirmed, we'll have to wait for presser but it indeed didn't look that bad. Sunday might come a bit too soon though..

                        Hopefully we have some concrete news from Klopp by Friday.

                        thought it was more of a knock than a muscle injury, as Suarez kicked him

                      B. Mane -> Salah (free), Salah (C)

                      Looking to transfer Son out.
                      Currently Im thinking either A) Pogba or B) Sigurdsson.

                      CAR have the worst form in the league and Pogba gets more points for MUN than anybody else, but MUN form isnt great either.

                      Meanwhile in terms of in form vs out of form, EVE vs TOT has the biggest disparity this gameweek so Sigurdsson seems a good shout. But on paper TOT are a stronger team.

                      Any thoughts?

                        Better to spend funds on upgrading to get Laporte (should get clean sheet, maybe more?)

                        Or gray to Vardy. Chelsea are hopeless away and not much to play for
