    A cheeky RMT:

    Ryan
    Laporte, Zinchenko, TAA, VVD,
    Salah, Sterling, Siggy
    Ings, Murray, Deulofeu

    Button, Digne, 4.5, 4.5

    Definitely a issue of rotation headache.

    Shall I downgrade a striker to Joselu? I could then make Zinchenko Walker.

    1. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Keep your eye on Brighton during preseason. Andone at 5.0 could be Brighton's starting striker which will save you 1m. Would not advise benching Digne. If you spend 6.0 on a defender I would suggest you play him week in, week out. Especially one with attacking potential because you never know when the goals and assists will come.

    2. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Robo, Alison, and Digne will outscore your 3 forwards by an overwhelming amount

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      You'd obv bench Ings for Digne, but it's not worth having a front 3 like that. Go 442 with a decent 6.5-7 4th Mid.

  2. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 6 days ago

    Currently my last call

    A. 541 with Digne and Dedonker
    B. 451 Tielemans and Kelly
    The fodder ones in each case are indeed fodder.

    1. Goodish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I don't like 5 at the back but if your mind is set on one of these formations I would say 541, just because you at least have 1 playing sub that way. If it turns out that Brighton's 5.0m striker is a starter then I would advise trying to get him in for your bench instead of 4.5 fodder, just in case your playing striker is ever rested/injured.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah the bench is possibly all no shows. Thanks any 5.0 forwards giving even 2 points a game would be good if needed.
        If Tammy looks like starting for either Villa or Chelsea it will be 442

    2. sumatera
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I think I'm going 442 this season
      Previously until last season was always 352

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah but midfield is where a lot of the points are but this year there probably are enough premium returning defenders to allow 4 or possibly 5 at the back. Have to pay for this though even 5 to 5.5 won't bring home at least 170 which is the minimum you need from all of them. Used be it was amazing if one defender made that - pool defender torn up the rule book and can do it again!!

    3. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years

      A imo. But only just.

    didn't we just finish fpl? jeez.

    two quick thoughts, what the hell is up with trying to change your lineup? no drag option? i have to hit four buttons!?

    no more Free Hit? i say good riddance.

    1. Goodish

      Free Hit is still there. You can't see it because you can't play it first week.

  4. sumatera

    2 months, 6 days ago

    Had the same first 11 for ages. Please let me know your thoughts.

    Alison

    Robbo Coleman Vertongen Laporte

    Grealish Dendonk Salah Sterling

    King Kane

    Subs: 4 4.5 4.5 4.5

    1. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 6 days ago

      You have 3 big boppers and a decent punt on Grealish

      1. sumatera
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah and Donk could be changed to a preseason on fire player maybe

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Can see why you're settled - it is excellent.

      My only reservation is that it seems a shame to use a Liverpool spot on the keeper. Granted he's the highest-scoring one.
      I put Ederson there and have a 2nd Pool defender (VVD). I can afford that because I prefer Vardy to Kane; the other route would be to downgrade Grealish although you can't go cheaper if you have to start the Donk. Actually, that's another reason to change Kane for Vardy - you need a 6.5 mid in your starting lineup.

      1. sumatera
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah I've been looking at that exact scenario Kane to Vardy. Vardy was on fire from the moment Rogers arrived. Could upgrade Donk to Zaha or Fraser with a downgrade Vertongen... great input anyway thanks

      2. Brooksy86
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Agree with this

    3. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Grealish and Dendoncker as starters is rank af

      1. sumatera
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Donk maybe bit grealish is a good punt. Not that bad over harsh. 3 bangers as well

        Maybe Vardy downgrade to upgrade Donk is the way to go though

        1. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          As Villa fan I'd lean El Ghazi

    4. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Looks good but Dedonker having to start each week is not really feasible. Suggestions as above could do the trick.

      1. sumatera
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Agree nice one

    5. footballguru_79
        2 months, 6 days ago

        GW2 Man City v Tot will have Vert/Lap/Ste/Kane

    6. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Pick one

      A) Giroud+Sterling
      B) Vardy+KdB

      1. sumatera
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Very tough
        I suppose if Giroud is sharing minutes with Tammy and or Batman then B

      2. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I'd jiggle the squad around to have Sterling and Vardy. If not, B

      3. Double Treble
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        A

    7. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Based on what Andy replied above, here's a Sterling+Vardy team.

      Alisson
      VanDijk Zinchenko Digne Christensen
      Salah Sterling Sigurdsson Tielemans
      Vardy Adams

      Button Donkey Kelly Greenwood

      Thoughts?

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        This ticks nearly all the boxes I think.
        I get Lei playing some counter attacking teams but I still think those opening fixtures are hard. Tbf this could be close to an optimum lineup / formation balance but obviously Christensen and even Zinc might only be temporary stop gaps and you are depending on some superstar defenders emerging at that price bracket.

      2. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Solution could be something like Allison to Fab
        Which allows enough for Christensen to Azpi ?

        1. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Seems decent, but wondering if Chirstensen could be better value if he nails a place. Big IF though, I agree.

          Cheers, mate. Here was my original team.

          Kepa
          TAA VvD Walker Digne
          Salah KdB Sigurdsson Tielemans
          Vardy Adams

          1. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            A playing 6.0 forward solves a lot of the problems I am having.
            I know preseason to come but you think Che nails a place in that Saints team?

            1. Differential (c)
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              We needed a 15-20 goal striker who wouldn't get injured for half the season. I think Che was brought in for that so cant see him benched. Think he starts from the get go. Alongside Ings instead of in place of him imo, but ofc preseason will reveal more.

              1. Albrightondknight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Got youth on his side and has come up through the leagues. Could be worth a punt for sure. Thanks.

              2. Albrightondknight
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 6 days ago

                Seriously mixed bag of fixtures to start but at 6.0 rather than 6.5 it allows a definite starting 4.5 defender I suppose to rotate him with and make the bench look a bit better.

          2. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            I am just not prepared to give up a few .5s in my defence but it means an upgrade from King to Vardy so you definitely got me considering it.

    8. Jacques The Lad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Anyone know how Winston Reid fits into the Hammers' line up now that he's back from injury? He's got potential to be a bargain at 4.0 if he cracks the starting XI

      1. Jaws
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        He won't. Let's hope another 4.0 emerges.

        1. Differential (c)
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Maguire->United could mean
          Tarkowski->Leicester
          Which means Gibson(4.0m) could step up.

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years

          Why won't he?

    9. Lucky Z
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Ryan [Button]
      TAA Rob Laporte Digne [Kelly]
      Salah Sterling Siggy Tielemans [Hayden]
      King Deu [4.5]

      Opinions?

      1. Jaws
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        It's pretty good. Dendoncker over Hayden. Not a fan of Brighton GK's. Otherwise it's OK.

        1. Lucky Z
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Thanks. Den lost his place in XI for a while last year or I am mistaken?

          1. Jaws

            • 5 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Not quite. He struggled to get into the starting 11, but once he did, he started every single match for Wolves and played 90' in each game (about 15-20 games). Definitely nailed.

            1. Lucky Z

        Better bench that most.
        Gives some flexibility on fixtures I suppose without be forced into transfers.
        I definitely prefer The Salah Sterling + downgrade option
        Over Kane and Kun. But you got too proven FPL assets in those two.
        Thing is when they haul they look great but I want a more certain stream of points with hauls and not sure how confident I would be captaining Kane in particular.

      does Ward or Dann have the 4th place defender spot?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Isn't it PVA, Kelly, Dann, Ward?

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Thanks I may have this all wrong but PVA is there and sakho and Tomkins have a place when not injured correct?
          So in that scenario who is the fourth one?

          1. Nico.
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Generally Dann then Kelly I believe. But Kelly is versatile and is second choice RB too.

            1. Albrightondknight
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        • 4 Years

        Wondering as if I took a gamble on Che Adams I would need some 4.5 defender to rotate with him in a
        442 / 541 as Adams has got a real mixed bag of fixtures.

        1. Udo
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          There would be Bou suitable, as they go well with Sou in your case ASmith, but honestly I wouldn't trust Bou def. But as you're intending to gamble anyway?!

      3. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I think Ward was backup for AWB. Dann is backup for Sakho and Tomkins, with Kelly 2nd CD backup.

        1. Albrightondknight
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Thanks thats what I was trying to get to. Ward more likely long term if no signings. Cheers.

      who will give more points..?
      dendocker, grealish, or el ghazy.

      1. Kiwivillan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        The 2 Villa players are attacking midfielders. Dendocker is defensive midfielder. As a Villa fan my first pick of Villa midfield would be El Ghazi until see new players in pre season

        1. Taegugk Warrior
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Thx... good point... cause i need a starting maximum 5.5 midfielder... do you think el ghazi get his spot in the villas starting line up..?

          1. Kiwivillan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            100% Left wing but can play either side

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        El Ghazi imo...

      3. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Their pricing tells you

        Grealish 6.0
        El G 5.5
        Donks 4.5

        You get what you pay for in this game!

        1. Double Treble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          5.5 Fraser last season can give what 9.0 mid cant archieve....

        2. Kiwivillan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          El Ghazi will have more goal involvement than Grealish imo

          1. Amey

                      We massive underdogs and I expect loss but anything can happen

                        The point I'm making about the FPL prices is that they reflect pre-season expectations. The point of playing the game is trying to get the better of FPl Towers. It's like gambling - in the main the company knows what it's doing, but there is skill and plenty of luck in finding those players with extra value.

                        Right now, not knowing much about Villa, I'm prepared to say that I expect Grealish to outscore El G at the end of the season, and both to outscore Donkey. I expect that because FPL Towers expect that. If you think El G top him, that's your speculation and you take a punt on it. You may well end up correct, but I think there's a less than 50% change because that's what FPLT think.

                        And that, in a nutshell, is what this game is all about.

          Can someone answer me please...

          1) How many penalty Liv got last season?

          2) Do u think TAA or Robbo can be captain if we dont own Salah (Looks like Liv coverage). I know points Salah's points and ppm higher .

          3) Do u think Vardy can be a reliable captain too? Can he get at least 7.0 ppm at the end of the season?

          As u can see, i think to leave Salah alone. Get Sterling, Vardy, TAA or even Wilson to rotate captaincy.

          Risky and brave enough?

            Never C a defender

              I remember some monstrous point score by a defender like Ahmad Hegazi (WBA) in his debut, defeat all other players

            Not sure. You should easily be able to find it in members area.

            Yes but I wouldn’t be doing it often or expect more than 5/6 points.

            In certain fixtures I feel like he can be a good option but not at the level of sterling, salah, kun, Kane, and mane

            You could start this season with salah and then transfer to sterling in gw 3 as salah first 2 fixtures are much better imo

          As soon as Harry Kane scores a scrappy goal off his bum against nobody fc in preseason he’s coming into my fpl team in place of sterling. Even though he’s failed the eye test for the past year or 2 and may be a glorified DM.

              I've had enough of him.
              Would be very tempting to get him once he gets going, but I'm going to avoid him.
              Frustrating to own for me

                I'd certainly consider Zappy, and Andone for my bench.

                  Eh? Oh.
                  Greenwood sits on the wood next to Donkey. He won't start games. Will you be starting Diop week in week out? Nah.

                Pretty much. I wouldn't have a BOU defender though, even with those fixtures.

              Sterling And taa in a 532
              Or Salah and Zaha 4 4 2?

              That’s what it comes down to

                2 months, 6 days ago

                Who's going to score more? For me, Salah and Sterling will be fairly close, but TAA will significantly outscore Zaha. So, A for me.

              Salah / Sterling / Sigurdsson / A. Perez / Dendocker

                See what happens with Villa if we sign a keeper though Steer was great end of season recall

                Keeper rotation are a nightmare chance are the one away to City save a penalty while the one at home to a promoted club concedes in injury time.
                Fab and a 4.0 for me but Pope could be good also. If Pope nailed a spot him and a 4.0 could be fine too.

              So maybe Lampard could go Azpi at centre back. Tbf Chelsea don't get many CS when Christensen does play there if Rudiger is out.
              That's leads to Zappacosta playing which would allow a huge upgrade elsewhere. In my case it would be Azpi > Zappa. Might even have cash for something like a bench. Here's hoping.

                2 months, 6 days ago

                Zappacosta is a decent player, it was just Azpi's consistency + Sarri's rigid XI which made it difficult for the backups to play. Wonder if Lampard is a tinkerman or not . . .

                I'm shocked people are considering Chelsea defence at all, too much of an unknown at this point.

              Southampton kickoff their preseason today with a game in Austria against SCR Altach in the Cashpoint Arena.

              This is the day where Che Adams will enter everyone's draft. Just you wait.

                Do you seem him being nailed from GW1 or slowly bedded in?

                  Straight in. Doesn't look the shy type and he know's he has what it takes to excel at this level. He's stuck on my XI for the last 10-odd drafts.

                Monitoring Ings with great interest - if he goes into GW1 fit & firing I think i’ll take the gamble & hope to get a few weeks out of him

                Adams similar... plus Yarmolenko

                Think it’s one of that trio for slot #11!

                I hope not. It's annoying when all the sheep pick an under the radar player that I rate highly because of meaningless pre season goals.

                    That's fine but I pride myself on getting players before they start banging them in. I'm starting with him so hope he has a quiet pre season

                      I remember when I had Fraser and Jimmy in my team last seaosn on GW1. Felt like an FPL genius for a minute there haha.

                        It's the best feeling ay. It's why I play the game. My WC gw5 last season was full of low ownership players I thought were about to start scoring well and devoid of high ownership "essential" players I thought weren't in great form. Completely nailed most of em and flew up to the top 100 OR while the masses chasing points clamored to buy my players. Nothing better than being ahead of the curve.

                        Fascinating!

                          Yep LOVE Graham Hancock - could listen to his lectures all day πŸ™‚

                          Terrence McKenna was also fascinating to listen to - he reckoned psychedelics had a huge role to play (the “stoned ape” theory)

                          All of this progress over millennia has been steadily converging towards the inevitable moment when we finally discover the optimal GW1 DPL lineup - this is the famous transcendental object at history’s end πŸ™‚

                                “What we call reality is in fact nothing more than a culturally sanctioned and lingusitically reinforced hallunication” - the man was a genius

                                If only we could have had him around when FPL kicked off - his thoughts on 5 attackers vs. 6 or 7 would have been priceless πŸ™

                  Stones to zinchenko looks an obvious improvement to me

                  Stones & Kelly could be changed to more reliable players, you could go for a matching pair to be rotated on the bench order every week. And maybe reconsider BSilva to a regular starter too, but he wouldn't be a bad one on the other hand, if you're happy enough with Pep's roulette. Very nice balance anyway!

                I hope everyone has Dunk in their teams.

                  So do I. Sucks when other people get points.

                  B if zinchenko starts, but a looks much stronger defensively
