    McGinn. Worth a punt?

    1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Or El Ghazi.

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

        Him too possibly. Are they both likely nailed? That’s key.

        I’m going to be really disappointed in myself if I don’t have one punt in my week 1 team and Villa midfield or SU defence is where I’m looking.

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          If no other signings then yeah.

    2. Tommo1888
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I believe so . He’s in my team , great run after spurs

    3. MeatPieSausageRoll
      3 months, 8 days ago

      He’ll be backup to PogBoom and Bruno. Might as well get a starter

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

        If you believe Alan Nixon fantasy tales

  2. Jacky boy
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Want double city defence
    But already got vvd,robbo and digne. Laporte a little bit expensive
    And ederson doesn't seem best value :/

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

      Ederson is fair value I suspect given effectively all the goalies have gone up 0.5 - it’s just he’s so pricey. You can save a mill a get the same value with Fab.

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Which one of pope/heaton aill be a better option at 4.5
        Specially if one moves
        6.0 is too much

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

          If one moves then they both could be real value - Joe Hart showed there were save points at Burnley. But for me one must go first.

    2. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Walker?

      1. Jacky boy
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Laporte is far better option
        More goal threat and nailed

  3. ddande
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Trying something different. How's this look?

    Pope (Fahrmann)
    TAA / Duffy / A. Smith / Cathcart (Kelly)
    Salah / Sterling / Moura / Fraser (Dendocker)
    Auba / Wilson (Wickham)

    Cheers!!

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      It looks fine pal. Auba instead of Kane could be a great differential. My concern is your defence is obviously too weak.

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

        Thank you!

        1. Another Hoops
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          May I suggest Duffy & Kelly to Dunk & Diop so at least all 5 defenders play.

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

            Good suggestion! That does look better. Thank you!

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

      Moira and Fraser to Brooks and Perez and Cathcart and Smith to Gomez and Coleman would make it much better while keeping all your heavy hitters imo

  5. JRO093

    3 months, 8 days ago

    Sorry, but why would Zinchenko be nailed this season when he was not last season? Mendy was injured for the best part of it but we never felt Zinc was an option, why would he be now they have also brought another lb in...?

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

      Not nailed but a fair chance and he will shoot up if he plays the first game. He's in mine.

      1. JRO093
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Not to be negative but did you own him last year? If not, what changed?

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

          His position in the game.

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

      He was listed as a midfielder last year.

      1. JRO093
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Fair enough but in real life I don’t see him getting any more minutes vs last year. So you have to calculate with those minutes last year as a defender, is 5.5 good value. I am not sure...

  6. Pilgrim62
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What do you think about this lot:

    Ryan
    VVD, TAA, Colman, Ake
    Salah, Sterling, Sigurdsson, LMoura
    Wilson, Vardy

    1. Queenofthestoneage
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Nice

      1. Queenofthestoneage
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Bench tho

      2. Pilgrim62
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        My mistake
        KDB instead of Sterling

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

      I have basically the same team now minus sterling so I like it.

      Ryan
      VVD - TAA - Coleman - Trippier
      Salah - Fraser - Siggy - Moura
      Wilson - Vardy

      Button - Nketiah - Dendonker - Diop

      1 mil ITB

      1. Pilgrim62
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I would switch Trippi to MC defender

    3. Pilgrim62
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      SORRY

      KDB instead of Sterling

      1. Another Hoops
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah I'm thinking about him instead of Moura. But that Villa game looks tasty

  7. CloudSky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    https://streamja.com/wXPa

    Mahrez winner for the finals.

  8. LangerznMash
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Siggy or Callum Wilson

    1. Queenofthestoneage
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Siggy

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

      Wilson for GW1. Siggy long term.

      1. The 5% Team
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        this

    3. Pilgrim62
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Siggy

    4. Homer21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Both

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

      Cheers, yeah I think I agree with Hoops

  9. Red-United
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    A) Cathcart (or other 4.5 defender) + Kane?

    or

    B) Laporte + Vardy

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Again for GW1 A but B long term.

  10. Lovren an elevator

    A. Lukaku
    B. Jesus

      B

    2. I GOT WORMS

      B since A will probably move to another club

    3. circusmonkey

      B

    4. Skull And Gnomes 9
      • 2 Years

      I'd rather have 15-20mins of Jesus than 90 mins of Luk.

    5. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Is there a 3rd option. Please let there be a 3rd option...

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

        Thanks

        Ederson cheapest route to City defense

        Taylor will rotate with Kelly or can change to another 4.5 def

  12. CarelessGenius©
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Chances of Mendy starting first game?

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      50/50. Either he plays or he doesn't...

    2. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Very low I think. Although I’ll be nailing him to the team sheet if there’s any indication he will.

    3. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Not on tour, working on fitness so not much chance is there?

    4. I Member

      Not in their touring squad so I think it's a long shot.

      Answered your previous post. I’d go for B here but switch Fraser to King and have a all-playing bench.

        Sorry should say A

          Sorry! Im confused here;

          Deadteam with perma cap

          Ederson.
          VVD(vc). Robo. Laporte. Azpi. Digne.
          Salah(c). Sigurdsson.
          King. Jimenez. Vardy.

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Too much concern about Matip pal. Could work but for 5.5 I think there are better options

      1. Aztec Kamara
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 8 days ago

        This. Gomez could turn out to be gold at that price but need to wait and see.

    2. I GOT WORMS
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Matip did play very well at the end of last season.

    Any thoughts lads? 0.0 ITB

    Ryan / Button

    TAA, Digne, Zinchenko / Dunk, Diop

    Salah, Sterling, Lucas M, Perreyra, Jorginho

    Wilson, Vardy / 4.5

    Thanks 🙂

    1. Another Hoops
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Nice.

      If Zinchenko doesn't look nailed I would do Digne & Jorginho to Coleman & 4.5 mid and then Zinchenko to Laporte but let's see what preseason says.

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

    How's it looking?

    Ryan
    Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Digne, Zinchenko
    Salah, Sterling, Sigurdsson, Bernardo Silva
    King, Deulofeu

    Button; Kelly, Dendoncker, Greenwood.

    1. Netley Lucas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      If you're going Zinc then maybe have Ederson too for when the inevitable rotation kicks-in. Tielemans or Perez look good replacements for Bernardo.

  18. New Post
  19. Aztec Kamara

    Thoughts?

    1. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Or actually C) Lloris + Digne

    First RMT please.
    Pretty much template but tried to have bench players that play.

    Fabianski / (Button)

    Robertson / TAA / Laporte/ Coleman / (Dunk)

    King / Jota / (Long)

    Do the punts make these teams work?

    A

    Fab
    Robbo TAA Coleman O’Connell
    Sterling KdB Fraser McGinn
    Kane Wilson

    O.5 for Mo if need be
    Vardy Leicester mid works too for Wilson. Fraser

    B

    Fab
    Robbo TAA Digne O’Connell
    Mo Sterling Siggy McGinn
    Vardy King

  22. Robbieblob

    A. Wilson

    Sure it’s been asked a lot :/

    1. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Vardy. I went through the same process and decided a BOU double up looks pretty ugly in w3 with MCI. I also think Vardy could kill it this year, and undecided whether Wilson will live up to last season.

  23. Robbieblob
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Is dendoncker viable enough to start?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      3 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldn't want to.

  24. ThisPostsOnFire
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Loving the balance of this. Haven't been able to bring myself to change it for a while now.

    Thoughts?

    Lloris (Button)

    TAA, VVD, Walker, Coleman (Kelly)

    Salah, Sterling, Zaha, Perez (Dendoncker)

    Wilson, Deulofeu (Greenwood)

    Toying with the possibility of rotating Dunk with Taylor(bur) or Target, in place of Coleman & Kelly, with either .5 it or lloris to ederson.

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Close to my team, looks good.
