The FPL Gameweek 2 team news and injury updates

Following our earlier round-up of the seven pre-Gameweek 2 press conferences that were held on Thursday, we turn our attention to the remaining Premier League pressers.

The headline news came from Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp dropping the bombshell that Adrian (ankle) is a doubt for the match against Southampton on Saturday.

The Spaniard was injured in the post-match celebrations following the penalty shootout win over Chelsea in Wednesday’s Super Cup.

With Alisson (calf) already ruled out, Klopp may have to turn to Andy Lonergan or Caoimhin Kelleher should Adrian be ruled out – although the noises were cautiously positive coming from the Liverpool camp.

Klopp said of Adrian:

A supporter jumped over something, was chased by some security guys, slipped and kicked his ankle. Crazy. Yesterday it was swollen, today I spoke to him, he’s here, says it’s better, much better than yesterday. We have to see.

We will not go for a scan, I think. We wait for the swelling… it went already down. You have that, then you fly four hours back, it doesn’t help [the] swelling. I saw him now, it’s OK, it looks better. But the decision will be made tomorrow.

The player himself later added:

Yeah, I think I have many chances [to play]. I feel mentally ready and I also hope today with the treatment of the ankle it’s going to be much better. But I’m very optimistic to start playing tomorrow again.

Liverpool will also be without Naby Keita (muscle) tomorrow.

Many Fantasy managers will be concerned about Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah following their lengthy run-outs in the Super Cup.

Klopp eased fears slightly in that regard, saying:

I would say that the three players who suffered least in that game were Kante, Sadio and Mo! They are more used to playing in circumstances like that, physically really strong all three of them.

On Mane’s substitution in the Super Cup, Klopp said:

It was a pure decision based on responsibility to get him off and not let him go the full 120 minutes. Otherwise why would you take off a player who scored two goals and looked pretty OK still? Very important for us that he is back.

That Mo played now since we started the season is incredible, as well, because we all know, not the longest pre-season in the world. But that’s how we need them.

Now we have to make sure and have a look how they all recover. I will see them in an hour or so and then we have to make decisions.

Asked about Liverpool’s current defensive woes, Klopp said:

We know that we have to improve, we know that we have to do a couple of things. But those few things will just come because we are then longer together, at different situations, get used to it again.

Benjamin Mendy (knee) and Leroy Sane (knee) remain out for Manchester City but Pep Guardiola reported on Friday that everyone else was fit going into Saturday’s match against Spurs.

On the subject of Mendy, Guardiola said:

What I want with Benjamin is be fit. Be ready for training sessions, week after week. That is the target. After, for these specific qualities, he is going to help us. Because when he played, he played good.

The Lilywhites will again be without Ryan Sessegnon and Dele Alli (both hamstring), while Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth serve the final game of their bans.

Foyth is also undergoing rehab on an ankle problem.

Giovani Lo Celso may be involved in the matchday squad but Mauricio Pochettino confirmed the summer signing wouldn’t start.

Brendan Rodgers reported no fresh concerns ahead of Leicester’s trip to Chelsea on Sunday.

There was plenty to discuss in Frank Lampard’s presser, meanwhile.

The Chelsea boss said of the club’s injury situation:

Rudiger is training. Whether he’s completely match-fit is a different thing, for the same reasons as Callum [Hudson-Odoi], a bit of conditioning. Willian is probably closer. They are both in contention for the weekend.

Lampard said Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles) would probably return after the international break, adding:

He’s getting closer. He’s trained the last week or two with the under-23s and is looking good. There is going to be a period of conditioning work for him. The injury looks good which is the great news.

Then he’s going to have to be fitter than he’s ever been because I’m going to want him to run!

The Blues’ head coach expects Reece James (ankle) to be back in two or three weeks.

Asked about N’Golo Kante’s best position, Lampard replied:

The idea he wins the ball as well as anyone in world football doesn’t mean he has to sit in front of the back four. He has too much in his game: driving forward with the ball, leaving midfield areas and winning the ball back high up the pitch.

Lampard also praised Mason Mount, saying:

His attitude is so good. He is so hungry and very understanding of what it needs to be a player. He trains every day with absolute application and focus.

The two games he’s played gives me confidence this will be the season for him. He probably won’t start every game, but if he carries on the way he’s going he’s going to be a huge influence for us this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reported no fresh injury concerns in Friday’s presser and said that Alexis Sanchez (match fitness) is “very close” to being part of his squad for the trip to Molineux on Monday.

Nuno Espirito Santo made nine changes to his starting XI for the Europa League tie with FC Pyunik last night, resting many of his big guns ahead of Gameweek 2.

Only Conor Coady and Joao Moutinho kept their places against the Armenian side, although Leander Dendoncker, Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez came on as second-half substitutes.

Arnaut Danjuma (foot) joins David Brooks (ankle), Lloyd Kelly (ankle), Dan Gosling (hip), Junior Stanislas (knee), Lewis Cook (knee) and Simon Francis (knee) on the sidelines for Bournemouth’s trip to Aston Villa.

Chris Wilder didn’t report any fresh injury concerns for Sheffield United and said he had a welcome selection headache ahead of the visit of Crystal Palace.

Asked about striker Billy Sharp, who came off the bench to score at Bournemouth, Wilder said:

He couldn’t have done any more, really. Came onto the pitch, changed the course of the game, changed the result. But that’s what you’re looking for when you make substitutions. All three substitutions had an impact on the game.

The Eagles will again be without James Tomkins (groin) and Mamadou Sakho (match fitness) but Jeffery Schlupp has returned from injury and is available.

Norwich’s injury woes continue, meanwhile.

Centre-backs Timm Klose (hip) and Christoph Zimmermann (knee) will again miss out, while Josip Drmic (ankle) is unavailable and Onel Hernandez (knee) has been sidelined for the next three months at least.

Kenny McLean (back) is also a major doubt for the visit of Newcastle but Alex Tettey (calf) and Ibrahim Amadou (match fitness) are now available, at least.

For Newcastle, Andy Carroll (match fitness) is set to remain sidelined for at least four or five weeks, while Florian Lejeune (knee) and DeAndre Yedlin (groin) are long-term absentees and Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring) is a “slight doubt”.

Jonjo Shelvey (knock) should be fine to feature, though, having returned to training in midweek.

Fabian Delph (groin) will miss out on Everton’s match against Watford, while Morgan Schneiderlin is suspended and Andre Gomes (calf) is a doubt after limping off at Selhurst Park last Saturday.

On whether any of his new signings could be involved at Goodison Park on Saturday, Marco Silva said:

Some of them they are already ready if I need them, the others I need to give them some time. Alex [Iwobi] arrived the last man like you know. Some of the others didn’t play enough minutes in pre-season.

Specifically on Alex Iwobi, Silva added:

It’s a matter of putting him in the best physical condition possible, we’re trying to do this as fast as possible. He’s working really hard and well. It’s up to me to decide if he will be in the squad list for tomorrow.

    Spurs away record has been horrendous in 2019, they have lost last 5 consecutive away PL matches. Meanwhile, Man City averaged 3 goals per game at home last season. Sterling(c) looks better than Salah?

    1. Davemc23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      You're making a good case for it. I'm sticking with Salah though

    2. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I'm on him atm

    3. Kryten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Good argument but burnly put three past Southampton so going salah

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Spurs lineup looked unsettled especially back four, City at home can be absolutely ruthless.

    4. Hits from the Bong
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Can’t split them, I’m going with the sexiest kick off time. Sterling locked.

    5. Shark Team
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Salah also played 120 mins at instanbul so I would say YES

  2. The Royal Robin
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    The captaincy is a bit of a headache this week. There would be no question of giving Salah the armband had it not been for the Super Cup. Sterling has good stats against Spurs but it's hard to captain anyone against a top 4 team. Is it one of those week's where it could pay to take a punt?

    1. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Tempted by Digne..

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        There are worse options.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I am looking at the opposition Salah is playing. Sterling an option but Salah surely the better option vs Soton?

      1. The Royal Robin
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        If he plays enough minutes, yeah.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          And why would Salah not play enough minutes? You thinking he will be subbed off by start of the 2nd half. Go look at when Klopp makes subs. 120 minutes flah in the pan for Salah. Looked like he could play another 120.

          1. The Royal Robin
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Worst case scenario, Mane flattens them (he also has good stats vs Saints) and then Salah is rested.

            1. Hits from the Bong
              • 2 Years
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Is that true of Mane? Someone earlier said he was always poor against Southampton

            2. FOO FIGHTER
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Not sure why you think Salah will be rested, for whom?

              1. BobBradleysOpportunity
                • 3 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                origi, ox, brewster, it doesnt matter who.

      2. The Dance
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Certainly the better and safer option

        1. The Royal Robin
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Safety doesn't always get you ahead.

    3. J ⚒ Salah & Vinagre
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      It’s not if you own Auba.

      😎

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Feels like a good week to go for a differential.
      Didn't known anything about Pukki (besides his goal scoring record last season) until I saw him against Liverpool. Currently have the armband on him.

    5. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I think Sterlings a better option than Salah, opposition doesn’t matter at the Etihad. 6 against Chelsea, 4 against Spurs in the CL.

    6. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I’m going for Martial.
      Really can’t decide between S and S and as I’ve had a decent start, I’m not too bothered if I fall flat on my face.
      Now is a good time for a punt imo. If S and S fail and Martial gets some returns, then I’m looking at v nice rank hike.
      Just owning both means I shouldn’t fall to far behind.
      Quite like the idea of MNF too, as I’ll already know what I need.

      1. Emp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        This talk of salah being rested is laughable. Martial is an awful captain choice this week sorry

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I don’t think he’ll get rested, I think he will play limited minutes. I’ve been reading all the pros and cons of Salah vs Sterling all day and have decided to with neither.
          It may backfire or it may not... ty

      2. One Wheels Enough
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 1 month ago

        makes sense if you're worried about picking the wrong 'S' at least half of them will get it wrong. Martial though... surely you must have someone else that you might think will outscore him?

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Just fancy him to get something. Simple as... 🙂
          Other than S and S, I have Kane, who is a no, no and I don’t fancy King, Wesley or Perez either.
          Martial for me.

  3. Irish Madridista ⭐
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Kean -> Pukki done

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Cue, a Kean brace 😉

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        In seriousness, even if he doesn't start, Kean could come off the bench and get a goal or two against awful looking Watford

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Crikey, you don’t think Kean will start then?

      1. Irish Madridista ⭐
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Too unsure to be relying on him for 7mil, hurt me last week.

    3. Davemc23
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Everton have great fixtures

      1. Permian23
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        amazing fixtures.

        1. pingissimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 1 month ago

          But they’re looking rubbish themselves

      2. Irish Madridista ⭐
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I've Coleman and Digne too.

        Great fixtures mean nothing if you're sitting on the sidelines.

    4. Kryten
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Wow I would have kept Kean but brave move goodluck

    5. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Why did you pick Kean then? Was never likely to start GW1 but probably will this week.

      1. Irish Madridista ⭐
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I don't know if he's likely to start this week.

        Thought he'd get longer on the pitch GW1 and everything I'm hearing is that he'll have to wait longer than expected for his first start..

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Where you hearing that? I'd be very surprised if he didn't start this week given Everton's scoring problems in preseason and GW1.

        2. Permian23
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Siggie is more nailed and on pens and set pieces. +1m more

        It is all about the Pukki MADNESS.

        1. Irish Madridista ⭐
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Really like his fixtures offensively and his price is on the rise at least

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Newcastle in the next 4 the only decent fixture for him imo.

            1. badgerboy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              1 year, 1 month ago

              Yeah it's funny. People doubting Kane to get anything against City but Pukki can definitely nick one against them.

                • 5 Years

      "We crammed a lot of football into him at the end of pre-season. He missed the first two weeks when there was a lot of heavy work. I still think he needs a bit more football but he will come back into the thinking [as] a squad member."

    ive been playing this game for three years, but ive never seen a less justified bandwagon than the pukki one...bookmark this

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      We have been playing for 6 years and more!

      1. BobBradleysOpportunity

        it wasnt a flex, just stating how surprised i am by it

    2. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      That's a bold claim. There have been some stinkers.

      1. badgerboy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        Boselli springs to mind.

    3. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      absolutely no chance it's worse than Walcott/Mkhi last season

    4. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I've been playing 10 years and I understand it tbh. Though ive watch a lot of the championship so maybe that's why I get it

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        He could be good at some point , but that point isn't now.

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          I'm not getting him mind .. But I get why he is popular.

      2. Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I can see him scoring vs Newcastle and whu. Post that good fixtures. Norwich always attack.. And pukki and beundia have to benefit. Cant see them winning mind.. But can see them scoring

      3. Markus
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I agree. 40% goal involvement for a team that could easily score 40. It's not mad at all, he'd have had loads more backers at the start if the gw fixtures started at 2. Don't have him either but monitoring...

    5. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Carroll TC or Moreno DGW

  11. Eytexi

    All gtg & roll the transfer?
    Captain: Salah.
    Vice Captain: TAA.

    Pope.
    TAA, VVD, Zinc, Digne.
    Salah, Sterling, Siggy.
    Wood, Wilson, King.

    (Button, Lundstram, DD, Hayden).

    1. Pumpy Pro

      Absolutely yes

  12. Rolls-Royce

    Too risky to bring in Kean on WC?

    Would have front three of :: Kane Kean Pukki

    1. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Kane Jota Pukki is what I'd have (and what I will have next week probably)

      1. Rolls-Royce
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Interesting. Jota has tough fixtures though?

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • 11 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Atleast he has fixtures :).. Kean may still be a week too early. I own Jota too and he won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Can see him doing well next few weeks tbh

        2. THE WERNER DELUSION
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          nah, he doesn't really from an attacking perspective and he's good - I don't want to be a hypocrite so I must say that I've done Jota -> Pukki this week in a very strange move (price change) which involves getting him back next week. I'll either go with Wilson Pukki Jota or Kane Pukki Jota

          1. THE WERNER DELUSION
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            just in case someone cries about this move, it's so I can decide between Kane OR Son next week (and it will depend on how good/bad Wilson looks)

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      WC now? If so, both Kean and Pukki are bad bets based upon such limited sample size. If WC now, you are better off with proven players such as Jota etc.

  13. I Member
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Play one: Lundstram (CRY) or Barkley (LEI)?

    1. Rolls-Royce
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Barks

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah I'm thinking even if he doesn't start he'll get minutes off the bench and could do something.

    2. Emp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Lundstram

  14. The Truth Is...
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    im going for a budget forward line. I have 12m to spend on two forwards. Which 2 would you pick??

    im considering Maupay and adams.

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      My entire forward line is £15.5 (King, Greenwood, Wickham). Now THAT's budget. 😛

    2. Baked baines
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Wesley & Maupay

      1. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        I like this one

  15. Danstoke82

    Hi all, any changes needed here or roll the FT?

    Pope
    Digne Dunk VVD
    Salah Sterling Fraser Perez
    Kane King

    Subs; Button Rico Deondocker Greenwood

    £0.5 ITB

    Thanks in advance

    1. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Roll it.

      1. Danstoke82

        Cheers!

    2. onceuponatyne

      That's a great looking side. GTG.

      1. Danstoke82

        Much appreciated!

    3. kysersosa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      GTG, definitely keep the FT

    4. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Yes. Need one more player to complete the squad.

    5. One Wheels Enough
      • 1 Year

      kane to aub(c) diff, cokey...

  16. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    I feel this could be a huge week for mid priced midfielders. Trezeguet, McGinn, Grealish, Fraser, Iowbi, Siggs, Mount, Pedro, to name but a few could al do really well.

  17. jacklockett
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Danny Ings, do we think he will start?

    1. Gringo Kid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      No

      1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        :-O

    2. DAZZ
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I don’t think so.

  18. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Don't see a point in using a FT this week...

    Heaton
    VVD/TAA/Digne
    Salah/Sterling/Perez/Fraser/Trossard
    Wesley/Vardy

    Button/Lundstram/Kelly/Greenwod

    Agreed?

    1. King Sheep
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Probably, I'm getting trigger-finger with Trossard ...

      1. kysersosa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yep, 1 more week and I can see him going if no return this week.

  19. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Here I go again on my own, playing Lundstram and benching Zinchencko.

    1. Siggy Azalea
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Think that could pay off.

    2. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      I like your confidence!

    3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years

      Prefer the Whiresnake version.

  20. Don Kloppeone
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Start Moura or Lundstram?

    1. King Sheep
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Moura

    2. Siggy Azalea
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Moura

  21. Siggy Azalea
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Stick with Moura (Man City,a) for 7.5 or transfer to any options? I've already got Kane.

    a) Zaha (SU, a)
    b) Mkhitaryan (Burnley,a)
    c) Pulisic (Leicester, H)
    d) Fraser (Villa, a)
    e) Any other 7.5 or below options?

    Thanks!!!

    1. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      do not even think about doing B 😀 I'd keep but Pulisic of those (mainly based on fixtures)

      1. Siggy Azalea
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        thanks 🙂

  22. King Sheep
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Play

    A) Rico or B) KWP

    Trossard

    1) Keep or 2) Ship

  23. Dynamic Duos
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    On ft is pencilled in , but which other ft would prefer out of these?

    A) Perez to Son
    B) Wilson to Kane

    1. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      similar position here, Son (+Wilson) vs Kane (+Trossard) - see how Wilson does first, think he is keep-able if he looks good, fixtures are decent after City

      1. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        also depends who I'll be likely to captain in GW3 - if it's Sterling then I might just get Son, but we'll see

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Salah and Sterling is enough as (c) picks for me.

          1. THE WERNER DELUSION
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            I originally planned a Kane-Sterling captaincy rotation from GW3 but we'll see

            1. Dynamic Duos
              • 7 Years
              1 year, 1 month ago

              But still having Salah in your team?

              1. THE WERNER DELUSION
                • 5 Years
                1 year, 1 month ago

                prob be Mane in that case, need to have one of them though

                1. Dynamic Duos
                  • 7 Years
                  1 year, 1 month ago

                  Well good look mate and we can talk about this more after we have another week of info.

                  1. THE WERNER DELUSION
                    • 5 Years
                    1 year, 1 month ago

                    yep you too, GL

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Yeah hopefully Wilson finds some form , my preferred move is A

        1. THE WERNER DELUSION
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          depends on a lot of things for me, if Iwobi or Mount look good then I'll probably get Kane

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Yeah I'm definitely in the same position , if Perez looks good then I will go B, we learn more this weekend.

    2. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Son is suspended

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 1 month ago

        Erm if you read the post it involves 2fts, I have them 2fts now?

        1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 1 month ago

          Not sure what you were on about tbh, but if you are talking about next weeks transfer I would wait to see what happens this week first.

          1. Dynamic Duos
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 1 month ago

            Ok pal.

              Is that a polite way of saying "piss off"? 😀

              1. Dynamic Duos
                • 7 Years

                No mate . Do you have any Spurs ?

      2. Dynamic Duos

        One* lol

  24. JWilson3
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Hold Barkley or sell him for McGinn?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Hold l, don't see there being much between them this week and next week two ft will come in handy.

  25. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Anyone like to predict next weeks bandwagon? Feel if one of the Everton boys do well, Kean/Siggy/Richarlison, it could come from there.

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Son or Kane

    2. Slouch87

      Ridiculous question and what's the point of it tbh ?

        can you not just ignore posts you don't like? 😀

        1. Slouch87
          • 4 Years

          Not really when they're completely cretinous like this. It's just posting for the sake of posting with no real purpose.

          1. THE WERNER DELUSION
            • 5 Years

            bit harsh but fair enough, I'll leave you be 🙂

          Post something useful I will give you a useful response,.
          Post rubbish I will give you a useful response.
          No difference.

    3. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years

      Pulisic is already on his way, any kind of attacking involvement this weekend and he will be real popular

  26. Come on you Kante

    Hi. I appreciate the difficulty in organising 6000 entries but is there any update on the FFS H2H league yet. Such an exciting prospect. Cant wait to see what league I am in and who my opponents are. Bring it on.

        Hi magician.
        I have seen the community article which was great, but do you know if leagues and fixtures are available yet, or are they still being sorted.

  29. jacklockett
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Pick one to transfer for Ings
    A) Maupay
    B) Wesley
    C) Locadia
    D) Benteke
    E) Calvert-Lewin
    F) Joelinton
    G) Adams

    1. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 1 month ago

      Wesley, Villa fixtures look pretty good and a guaranteed starter with Kodjia injured for now.

  30. HUATSHOOTER
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 1 month ago

    Barkley out ? Mcginn or beundia in? But mcginn price up
