FPL Community Questions: Live Stream

We’re hosting another community questions video special this afternoon.

Joe and Neale will be on air on our YouTube channel from 12:30pm BST but you can also tune in via the embedded video below.

This will be converted into podcast format after the event.

As happened on Tuesday, we’ll be addressing some of the questions and issues raised in the Hot Topic and Tweet that we put out earlier in the week.

ritzyd asked about budget gems, so Joe and Neale will be delving into the best bench fodder options in each of the positions – if there are any, that is.

Kane Lane and I Member wondered if Chelsea assets – including Olivier Giroud – are being overlooked and that issue will also be tackled in today’s stream.

Joe and Neale also share their general thoughts on building a Gameweek 1 squad and any advice that may be useful.

We’ll be live again next Tuesday and Thursday lunchtime tackling more of the requests that were submitted on our site or on social media.

Keep your requests coming in for topics of debate in the meantime and we’ll get through as many as we can before the season begins.

    Anyone knows how many matches last season Laporte played as a LB?

      Transfermarkt has him down with 3 in the PL.

    Tielemans or Perez?
    Brooks or Fraser?

    1. GanonTEK

      Perez, Fraser

    What do you think? Would you go light upfront or this team convince you?

    Ryan Button
    TAA VVD WP/Aurier Cathcart Kelly
    Salah Sterling Fraser Perez Dendoncker
    Aubameyang DCL Nketiah

      Like the team overall, but although I'm an Arsenal fan I won't be going near them. Although it hurts to say, I prefer Kane over Auba. Have a feeling he will be back to his usual self after a rest and they have great home fixtures which he usually excels in.
      You have a captaincy nightmare each week with 3 big hitters!

    Thoughts? Could this work?

    Pope 4.0
    TAA VVD Digne Zinchenko Zappacosta
    Salah KDB Siggy LMoura Dendoncker
    Vardy King Greenwood

    1. KieraninChina

      Azpilicueta seems to be moving to right back which makes zappacosta a waste.

    352 1.0itb

    Foster
    Digne // VVD // Zinchenko
    Salah // Sigurdsson // Fraser // Bernardo // Perez
    Kane // Origi

    4.0 // Dunk // Kelly // Greenwood

    Will likely use the 1.0 on Origi to the 6.5 of choice for GW2.

    Thoughts please chaps.

    Ryan Heaton
    Robertson Laporte Digne Kelly Stearman
    Sterling Salah Siggy Fraser Dendonker
    (Best 3 strikers for 19m ? ? ? )

    1. theswallow1965
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Wilson, Deulo, Wickham/Greenwood?

    Getting closer to a final team......

    Ederson / Button
    VVD / TAA / Digne / Kelly / Rico
    Salah / Sterling / Tielemans / Siggy / Doncker
    Wilson / Deulofeu / Wickham

    Could maybe downgrade Sterling > 7/8m (Fraser/Bilva/Zaha/Fanderson?)
    then upgrade
    Wilson > Kane/Aguero?
    What do you guys think?
    Cheers

    Hi
    What peoples thoughts on the ox
    Cheap option at 6.5 m or not a lot of game time ?

    1. GreennRed

      Won't bring as many attacking returns as other 6.5m mods even if he were to be be nailed on which is unlikely.

    Please help me chose

    a) King and Fraser
    b) Wilson and Brooks

    I have Adam smith in defense because of the favorable fixtures for Bournemouth in the start. There's just no other 4.5m option in defense.

    Thanks in advance

      B.

    2. No Kane No Gain
      • 2 Years

      B

  11. No Kane No Gain

    1 month, 23 hours ago

    Plan to do Wilson + Fraser -> Haller + Son GW3

    To get them in which combo should I have:

    A) KDB + Richarlison
    B) Sterling + £5.5m

    1. JonGTFC

      Can't see any value in 5.5 mids at the moment (maybe a punt on one of the Villa guys) so I'd go a) (though i prefer Siggy to Rich)

    Its come down to a couple of choices for me...

    Heaton (fodder)

    Wan bis Rico Coleman Robbo Trent

    Salah(c) Sterling ....... Perez (leitner)

    ........ (mousses) (greenwood)

    So it is either Kane and a 6.5 maybe Redmond

    Or

    KdB and Wilson.... Decisions
