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

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

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

        1. texastoffee

            Wilson. Thank me later. 😉

            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, 12 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

            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, 12 days ago

        whos Fate?

      2. pjomara
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 12 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, 12 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, 12 days ago

        Why wouldn't TAA play?

      2. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        Very confident as Liverpool have to go out and win game

      3. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 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.

      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, 12 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

        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

      Just got in.. so Pool did it, amazing! Dakes, used to be top lad, suck it you twerp

      1. Dakes.
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

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

        1. Niho992
            1 month, 12 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, 12 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

      2. jdp219
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 days ago

        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

          I like 1 from choices

          1. jdp219
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

            Others outside the choices you might consider?

        2. Mc3
          • 4 Years

          Don't fancy pog?

          1. jdp219
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 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.

      3. jia you jia you
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 12 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, 12 days ago

          Laporte over Kompany

          1. jia you jia you
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 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, 12 days ago

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

          1. jia you jia you
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

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

        3. JohnnyMagrinho
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 12 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, 12 days ago

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

          Laporte if Robbie confirmed out, bench Son

          1. jia you jia you
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 12 days ago

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

      4. tafrère

        Robertson injury ?

        1. Les Bleus
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          Yes

        2. HMC
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

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

        3. ddfc
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 12 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

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

        % chance Son wins the appeal??

        1. Les Bleus
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 12 days ago

          0.5%

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

            haha

                Can you do Jimenez to Wilson/Zaha?

                    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

                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.

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

                    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?

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

                    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)?

                    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

                      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?

                    Didnt even start last game. Even if it was your plan all along i would still reconsider 🙂

                      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.

                      1 month, 12 days ago

                      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

                        • 1 Year

                        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

                  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.
