    Why no love for Chicarito given Arnautovic has gone?

    1. Andy'81
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Hammers will likely add another forward with Arnie gone.

    2. BoleynWin
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      He’s technically for sale, as & when we sign strikers (here’s hoping) then he will be moved on to either the MLS or Mexico.
      Even if he stays, Antonio will likely be used ahead of him due to versatility IMO

  2. Mr Frost

    Liverpool 3-0 up at ht I see. The season needs to hurry up!

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Milner essential. Can cover Salah.

  3. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Who scores the most this season:
    A) Che Adams
    B) Billy Sharp
    C) Teemu Pukki

    1. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Che Adams, no doubt.

    2. NUFCAndrew
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A or C Sharp will have to be rotated due to age

      1. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        He's 3 years younger than Murray, anyhow.

        1. NUFCAndrew
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          2* but SHU are in the market for McBurnie & Maupay

          1. OLDHERMAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Oli's good stuff.

    3. OLDHERMAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Easily Billy Sharp, 13 (plus 3 assists). Che Adams will score 7 (4 of which coming off the bench). Pukki 2, on accidentally, and sold in January to Dagenham & Redbridge as a backup for the local hero (41 years old but the lover of the owner's daughter). Life's hard.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Loved Sharp for the brief time we had him, and still do. Class player throughout his professional career. Think he'll do well.

    4. OLDHERMAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Seriously, it'a hard choice. I've seen all the Norwich highlights I could and I believe that many of their attacking midfielders could do well in PL (players like Emi Buendia and, if he plays, Stiepermann). So, I think assists for Pukki will flow in a decent number, and he definitely is an interesting finisher. I guess he could do what the likes of Wood, Rondon and Mitrovic did last term: 11/12 goals, but with very few assists. Don't know what to expect from Adams, who in my humble opinion has still plenty to find to face PL defences efficiently. Sharp is to be replaced as a starter, I'm told, so no contest.

  4. NUFCAndrew
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Extremely unlikely but imagine Pickford starts to take penalties after scoring one in the nations league, maybe Silva wants to try a new penalty taker after Siggy’s under par record last season 🙂

    Maybe preseason will soon tell but I am wondering why no Mendy fans? Was it 2 year ago he was the MC no brainer?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      He might not be a first teamer.

    2. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Exempted form the city squad for preseason.
      Not in the new kit reveal vid, which is strange as he is by far the most popular and active social media personality in the side.
      And questions about his discipline have been asked. A bit of an off joke here and a bit of ubbecesary banter there, and you can see why Pep may have misgivings. Plus, hus leags arent exactly titanium, arent they?

    3. barracuda
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Site at defending, fragile. Zinchenko licks Pep where he likes it.

      1. barracuda

      2. OLDHERMAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Mendy's a winger, in fact, but he does not know yet.

  6. DIMITRIS

    How do you like my team :
    Pope
    VVD | Digne | Dunk | Trippier
    Salah | Sterling | BSilva | Siggy
    Vardy | King

    Bench: button, dendonker, nketiah, rico

    1. BoleynWin
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      No City defence will hurt you, you’ll be chasing points most week straight off the bat especially as most will go double Pool defence too.

      Lose Trippier, he’s for sale & will be rotated even if he stays

      1. Marmalade Forest
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        No love for Aurier either, even though Trippier is being touted with a move away

    This is the week FPL should've opened up again, not in June.

    Surely no one relevant has made a draft until now, right? Right?

    1. Mr Frost

      Can't help but tinker, yet you just know nothing will be certain till start of August really.

  9. No Professionals

    A) Sigurdsson, Coleman and zinchenko

    B) Perez, Digne and Laporte

    Origi CF IN 2nd half. Get the wagon ready.

    1. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Gomez playing CB alongside Matip, Lovren played the 1st 45 mins.

    2. Mr Frost
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Origi has looked v rusty. Gomez some composed touches. Curtis Jones will get gametime this year.

  11. La Roja

    RSC Altach 1 - 1 Southampton
    Full time at Austria, as it ends in a 1-1 draw. A quick Che Adams goal is then cancelled out by a screamer from 25 yards by the Austrian outfit.
    Thoughts:

    - Che Adams looks the real deal. Strong, energetic, good finish for the goal. You can clearly see why Ralph was such a big fan, we never really looked any other striker in the market but him. Well-suited to a high press, pretty sure he starts vs Burnley.
    - Plays was lethargic in large spells to be honest. Altach have been more advance in their preseason prep, so were better prepared. We need a little bit more urgency, looked especially dead in the second half.
    - N'lundulu, an academy striker, looked good. Quick, pacy, even injured a trialist for Altach when he was breaking through haha.
    - Cedric looked alright, but I think Valery's place is assured. Bertrand, not so sure. Ralph seems to realy rate our academy LB, Sam Vokins, so will have to see how that situation develops.
    - McCarthy, my oh my. I mean, it was a good shot, but I really thought he could've at least made a better effort at saving that. Idk. Think Gunn shuld nail that spot.
    - Redmond continues to be lively. No goal, but quick, helped the defence occasionally, and was a threat.

    Can't wait for the next game!

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Nice report. Seriously considering Adams.

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Nailed in my team. Not exclusively because I think he'll bang a hat-trick past Pope, but also because its nice to root for a player from your club haha.
        I think preseason will show more of what he can do.

    All things considered, put the pool defs in order

    A) TAA
    B) VVD
    C) Robbo

    1. Bumbaclot

        Yeah. Feels wrong not having Robbo though

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      TAA, Robbo, VVD
      I've got TAA and VVD due to the 0.5m saving though.

  18. sully29
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    I've seen a few mentions of Origi. Is it actually expected that he'll be playing at the start of the season due to Firmino or Mane being absent?

    1. Bumbaclot
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I’d stay well away

      1. sully29
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Oh, I'm currently nowhere near. Just curious.

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      He'd be gold GW1. It's likely Mane won't play but Firmono will. Could be the Ox who starts though, we can't be sure yet.

    3. Tomerick
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Everyone expected big names to be rested last season and it more or less didn’t happen.

      Even if Origi does play one at the beginning it will take some real shuffling to get him out and get Salah/Mane/Firmino that you will have presumably foregone.

      a) Tielemans. Vardy. Lacazette. DeBruyne. Wilson. Kane. Aubameyang.

      off the top of my head.

      1. No Professionals

        How is Fraser over priced at just 7.5m off the back of last season?

    Alisson 4.0
    Robertson vertongen zinchenko diop/Cathcart
    Salah sterling Anderson Meyer 4.5

      Are you going Greenwood or Wickham for the 4.5m?

        Not sure yet. Wick ham probably

        Although tempted to find extra .5 and “upgrade” Meyer to Benteke. I am truly lost.

    Thoughts on this? Will assess whether Zinchenko/KDB look assured starters and who the Starting Burnley GK is:

    Burnley GK

    Robertson VVD Digne Zinchenko 4.5m

    Salah KDB

    Kane Vardy King

    (Dendonkey, Stephens, Hayden)

    Would you lads be so kind to pick between these two teams? I'm stuck in the mud here

    Team A:
    Ryan
    TAA, VVD, Laporte, Coleman
    Salah, Siggy, Zaha, Madds
    King, Kun
    [4.0, 4.0, Dendoncker, 4.5]

    Team B:
    Ryan
    TAA, VVD, Laporte
    Salah, KDB, Siggy, Zaha, Madds
    King, Jota
    [4.0, Coleman, Diop, 4.5]

    A pros and cons: + Kun, - no bench at all
    B pros and cons: - no premium striker, + KDB, solid bench

    Thoughts on this squad? I know bench weak and depends on Zinchenko confirming place. Trippier another option depending on preseason form.

    Pope/Heaton
    TAA Coleman Van Dijk Zinchenko
    Salah KDB Sigurdsson Tielemans
    Kane King

    Woodman Dendoncker Kelly Greenwood
