    Rival has Jimenez & will play him. I have 5 points lead. I think he blanks. Keep or sell? Bottomed.

    1. acidicleo

      I think other forwards will do better than Jim...

      1. Mr Frost

        1 month, 17 days ago

        Arnie or Wilson? I have 7.1m to spend. Or someone else?

        1. texastoffee
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Wilson. Thank me later. 😉

        2. acidicleo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          I would say Wilson due to his recent away record.
          Also he tends to have big scores.

    Who gets dumped along with Son? 2FTs, 0.0itb

    Foster
    Robbo, TAA, Laporte, Valery
    Mane, Sterilng, JWP, **Son**
    Aguero, Wilson
    (Ryan; Jimenez, Jota, Duffy)

    1. acidicleo

      Robbo injured.
      Son to Redmond and Jim to Vardy?

      1. jdp219
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Thought about both of them, actually.

        How serious is the Robbo injury? I didn't watch the game yet.

        1. acidicleo
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Subbed at HT.
          I think Milner will play this weekend and Robbo will be ready for UCL final.
          But wait for presser.

    If Fate had sat klopp and pep down at the beginning of the season and told them "one of you will win the CL and the other the Prem, work it out between you who gets what..."

    itd be the other way round, right?

    1. ddfc
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      whos Fate?

    2. pjomara
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      No, didn't think Liverpool had any chance in the league. Man City got 100 pts last season. CL would have been Liverpool's best bet especially with Real Madrid weaker than usual

  4. UpAndAway
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    There would be plenty with both Son and Robbo. What's the plan? Are we confident that TAA plays?

    1. acidicleo
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Why wouldn't TAA play?

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Very confident as Liverpool have to go out and win game

    3. jia you jia you
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Whoops, just posted similar below...TAA will def play I reckon. Prob get a City defender for Robbo, no real convincing idea who to get for Son atm.

  5. cbazza10

    3 point lead in my mini league

    Considering Jimenez and Pereira -> Laporte and Rondon ? -4 hit.

    The guy who is second has Pogba so I could also do Son to Pogba but not convinced on him, considering Bilva also.

    Would love some advice

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      With 3 point lead I would avoid-4 hit. Hard to say without seeing team but Son to Pogba sounds like move to make

    2. cbazza10
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 17 days ago

      my team
      guaita, boruc
      robbo, TTA, wan biss, periera, bennett
      son, sterling, mane, eriksen, babel
      aguero, zaha, jimenez

      opponents team
      patricio, boruc
      robba, TAA, boly, yoshida, pereira
      richarlison, sterling, mane, pogba
      wilson, aguero, jimenez

      Will be a very close finish. I think rondon laporte and bilva are good differentials to go for. or just play it safe and get pogba cover and hope my other players outperform his. i assume we will both captain Aguerooooooo

    1. Dakes.
      • 2 Years

      Wtf? I like Liverpool, and all credit to em. Should be taking shots at Jurgen Flopp you twerp

      1. Niho992
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I read your old posts and it seems you hate Liverpool and its ok everyone has right to choose but why are you in global league with Liverpool fans for god sake ?

        1. Dakes.
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          I most definitely don’t hate Liverpool mate! I preferred Barca for the win tonight just because I’ve semi supported them since I went and saw a game w my dad when I was like 10, but if it was v any other team I’d support Pool! And I wanted em to win the league too.

          Not sure which posts make it seem like I “hate” them but that ain’t the case

  9. jdp219

    Totally lost on what to do with second FT. Son is out, obviously, but who else? Leaning toward Jim right now, but not convinced that's the best move.
    Thoughts as of now...

    1) Son, Jim > Fraser, Vardy
    2) Son, Jim > Eriksen, Rondon
    3) Son, Jim > Redmond, Vardy
    4) Son, Jim > Siggy, Rashford
    2FTs, 0.0itb

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I like 1 from choices

      1. jdp219
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Others outside the choices you might consider?

    2. Mc3

      Don't fancy pog?

      1. jdp219
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Not particularly, no. But I can be convinced otherwise.

        Him and the team not in great form, plus there's news he wants out.

  10. jia you jia you
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    Robbo and Son owner like many so perhaps its time to finally get a City defender! Kompany is tempting after his midweek heroics.
    What's your thinking if you own both and Robbo is confirmed out?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Laporte over Kompany

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yup, just feel I've missed the train with him but better late than never maybe!

    2. Little Frank
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Have 2 FTs so Robinson -> Kompany and Son -> Mane is very tempting.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        That move looks great to me, I already own Mane.

    3. JohnnyMagrinho
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Wow. So because Kompany scores his first goal in how long? and his first goal outside the box in... how long? you're thinking of bringing him in.

      Has to be the absolute definition of points-chasing.

      Much. Better. Options.

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        lol, dont read into it too much...he's a player for the big occasion so not the worse punt!

    4. Longlatini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Laporte if Robbie confirmed out, bench Son

      1. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Have AWB & Bednarek on my bench with good fixtures but I have 2 FTs!

  11. tafrère
    • 2 Years

    Robertson injury ?

    1. Les Bleus
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Yes

    2. HMC
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      no point pre-empting or reacting until he gets a scan tomorrow

    3. ddfc
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      didn't look like much, but he was forced off at HT in a massive game so doesn't look like something he can recover from in time for Sunday... likely to keep fresh and recover for CL final

  12. ddfc
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    % chance Son wins the appeal??

    1. Les Bleus
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      0.5%

      1. ddfc
        • 3 Years

        haha

    2. Longlatini

    NEED ADVICE! I've drawn level after 8 GWs of planning & climbing with our ML leader (both now on 2210)- please help me steal the title! Neither of us have chips left, both 1FT, listed as last GW...

    2. Moeda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      What do you have ITB?

      Can you do Jimenez to Wilson/Zaha?

      1. Mc3
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Solid advice I reckon.

      2. Eboues left boot
        1 month, 17 days ago

        1.3 ITB, yeah can afford that - I'm concerned about his CS potential with Ederson and maybe even Bednarek in the final week compared to mine

    Sterling Mane Deulofeu
    Aguero Jimenez Rashford

    1. Mc3

      1. ddfc
        • 3 Years

        I think Mane looks tired, I could be wrong though

  17. Mc3
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 17 days ago

    So many possibilities... Here's a few

    A) Son, Jimenez -> Pogba, Zaha
    B) Son, Jota -> Pogba, Fraser/Mili/Maddison
    C) Son, Jimenez -> Sterling, Long

    Lloris

    Help required pls regarding transfer costs at the final game week.

    Normally any transfer points are deducted Transfer points at the start of the next Gameweek. Wharlt happens then if it's the last game week? Are they deducted at the final tally of game week 38? I pretty sure l didn't receive any deducted transfer points last season.

    Clarification on this would be great.

    1. Klein
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Transfer points are always deducted at the end of a gw and not the begining of next. Similar to 38.

      1. StingRay
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Thx for your reply.

        However that's NOT what it stares when l go into the rules. It says this:

        "Transfer points are deducted at the start of the next Gameweek"

        What do you think?

        1. Klein
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Actually its the deadline that its talking about i think. Deadline of the next gw meaning start of that gw.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        They are normally deducted at the first update after the first lot of games, not at the end of the GW. But with all matches in GW38 played at the same time, it will be once the final updates are done.

      As soon as the next deadline passes(ie an hour before kickoff on Sunday) any extra transfer hit points will be deducted from your total

    Hey all. Bonkers game today! 🙂 early thoughts w/ this lot? 1FT 0 ITB

    Lloris (speroni)
    Robertson* Laporte Bednarek (doherty kelly)
    Hazard Mane Pogba Son** (højbjerg)
    Aguero Vardy Jiménez

    Obviously potential Robbo injury throws a spammer in the works, but hopefully if he’s out we’ll get confirmation and I can swap to TAA.

    What else would you do? Ideal Son replacements other than BSilva (unless you can make a convincing argument for him)?

    1. Fitzy.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have gone for Bilva. Didn't see any other great option and wanted to beat te price rise incase id have to make another transfer after the liverpool game

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Yeah.. I decided not to do early transfers in case of other injuries so am now priced out of Doherty Son to TAA BSilva (-4) - though could obviously lose Robbo over Doherty if he’s confirmed out and do it.

        Just some on here said he’s a bit of a flat pick?

        Haha, true, butI think he'll start. Looked v. bright wjen he came on last week, and just won both Saints Player's and Fan's POTY. Plus Ralph want to enx the season at home with a bang imo.

    If robbo confirmed out, Is TAA worth a hit? Or shall i just play Cathcart (WHU)?

      Why does it have to be for a hit? TAA is cheaper.

        He’s probably having to also replace Son, and only has 1FT. I’m in same position.

        I wouldn’t be against playing Cathcart (my alternative is Bednarek which is also ok) but really am tempted by TAA seven for a hit if Robbo out. I’d hope he can repay it, even just in the one week

          Yeah exactly. Getting Cathcart + Robbo instead of TAA + Laporte on WC has been detrimental to my season hahah

            Ouchhhh that’s rough. Yeah Robbo Laporte here at least but wish I had the Liverpool double.

            Will start w that next season I think! Maybe even splash in defence and get Mendy Laporte too if both nailed! 😮

              Yeah, TAA + Robbo is the one ill be looking at. 22 league assists between them is incredible

                And even more FPL assists I am sure

    To clarify: I DO NOT HATE LIVERPOOL. That is a false narrative that may have been incorrectly perceived from my posts earlier about preferring Barca to win. Read my reply to Niho above if you want. 🙂

    All credit to the Reds they were fantastic tonight.

    You guys remember that pro footballer featured in an article from few weeks ago that played FPL and is doing rather well? He got sacked by his club for calling in sick to go watch Ajax in CL.

    Missed the game last night, couldn't believe the result. Was around for a brief moment at 1-0 near half time.
