    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 😮

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      TAA has been class these past gameweeks

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1 month, 9 days ago

        One of the best points per £ going.

    2. Amey

      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.

    3. TONY123
      • 3 Years

      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.

    4. Karan14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

    5. bigbudgie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

    6. Max City
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

      cost me 12 points on that GW35 alone

    7. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days 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 🙂

    1. TONY123
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      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.

    I like filthy skills and I cannot lie.

  5. Miguel Sanchez

    Laporte a better bet than Kompany in final GW?

    1. TONY123
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

    2. TLF
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      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
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Walker - very interesting shout. Cheers.

        1. Hits from tha Chong
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

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

        2. TLF
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 9 days 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
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days 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
        1 month, 9 days 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

    2. Karan14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

      1. Amey
        1 month, 9 days 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
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Looks a great move

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Could also do Son/Firmino to Sterling/Long?

        1. Max City
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days 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
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

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

  8. Rushford
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 9 days 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
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A

  9. Hits from tha Chong
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Lloris Foster
    Valery Doh Laporte TAA Duffy
    Son* Sterling Jota Redmond Mane
    Kun Jimenez Rashford

    2 FT and 0.2 ITB

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

    1. TONY123
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      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.

      1. Hits from tha Chong
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Thanks for the feedback Tony!

      2. bigbudgie
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        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?

    2. Hits from tha Chong
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

      1. TONY123
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        Can you afford Son + Jimi > Haz + Rondon?

      2. bigbudgie
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

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

        1. Fitzy.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 9 days ago

          The EL final is nearly 3 weeks later isn't it?

          1. bigbudgie
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

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

  10. Karan14
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 9 days 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
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

      1. Karan14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        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.

        1. Amey
          1 month, 9 days ago

          Yep.
          I'm jealous of Pool & City teams atm as a United fan 😮
          Hopefully we can get the act together sooner than later

          1. Karan14
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 9 days ago

            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.

            1. Amey
              1 month, 9 days ago

              Yeah.
              Hopefully the summer transfers are better now.

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Yes, not worth for hit imo

  11. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    C for gw 38
    A. Kun
    B. Salah

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Karan14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      If I had both I would be really confused.
      Because I dont im going with Kun.

    2. Super Saints
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      A

    3. Amey
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Mo

    4. TheDragon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Neither? I don’t actually like either option

      1. bigbudgie
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 9 days ago

        What's not to like? Both teams have to win

  12. Super Saints
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Is Robbo actually confirmed as out? Walking round fine after the game.

    1. Amey
      1 month, 9 days ago

      I'd love that tbh. 😮

    2. TONY123
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      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..

    3. Karan14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      He himself said he'll have a scan today and then see what happens in a couple of days.
      Hopefully we have some concrete news from Klopp by Friday.

    4. bigbudgie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

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

  13. J - Gimme your Mané …
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Any new on Firmino chances of starting this weekend?

    1. bigbudgie
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 9 days ago

      Prolly gonna need to wait for pressers later on

  14. No Mo Salah
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 9 days ago

    which one for the last gw:
    a. Long*
    b. Arnie

    got Redmond thx!

  15. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 9 days ago

    Me : Mane, Kun
    Rival : Salah (C), No Kun

    A. Keep Mane, Kun (C)
    B. Mane -> Salah (free), Salah (C)

    Thanks 🙂

  16. irnbro

    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?

  17. Tomas_brolin
    1 month, 8 days ago

    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
