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?

      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

        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 ?

          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

          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
            • 2 Years
            4 months, 15 days ago

            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
