Wilson and King reward owners’ patience as Bournemouth beat Villa

Goals: Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) | Harry Wilson (£6.0m) Josh King (£6.5m)

Assists: Jack Grealish (£6.0m) | Callum Wilson (£8.0m)

Bonus Points: El Mohamady x 3 Luiz x 2 H.Wilson/Grealish x 1

Bournemouth battled to a 2-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, leaving their hosts still winless on their return to the Premier League. 

An early penalty was converted by Josh King (£6.5m) after Tom Heaton (£4.5m) had fouled Callum Wilson (£8.0m) in the box to put the Cherries 1-0 up, before Bournemouth debutant Harry Wilson (£6.0m) doubled their lead with an outstanding strike.

The Wilson and King combination is a well-known and lethal duo to Fantasy managers, and the two strikers did not disappoint on Saturday. For Wilson, the assist for King’s converted penalty means the striker has now recorded attacking returns in two consecutive matches.

And for King, his well-taken penalty will inevitably add to his confidence as Bournemouth bid to build on their unbeaten start to the 2019/20 campaign with promising fixtures from Gamweeks 4 to 7, though first, they must face reigning Champions Manchester City at Dean Court in Gameweek 3. 

Harry Wilson scored his first goal for Bournemouth on Saturday

Eddie Howe’s side were buoyant and energetic in attack, yet this enthusiasm was poorly managed by central midfielder Philip Billing (£5.0m) who was lucky to remain on the pitch after a number of poor challenges and was consequently substituted by Howe at half-time. 

For Villa, this was a disappointing result after their promising performance against Spurs last week.

Manager Dean Smith will be understandably frustrated that his side were able to deliver such a strong first-half performance in the capital but fall so short of the required standards in the opening 45 minutes at Villa Park. 

There are a number of assets in Villa’s squad who have the potential to offer value in 2019/20, yet investing in a team who are yet to prove themselves in the top-flight and who remain winless is a difficult decision to justify even if there is a wealth of potential value-for-money options in midfield and defence.

It was a mixed afternoon for Douglas Luiz who was sloppy in possession in the first half but scored a wonder-goal in the second

Tyrone Mings (£4.5m) delivered another commanding performance at the heart of the host’s defence alongside Bjorn Engels (£4.5m), whilst a wonder strike from Douglas Luiz (£4.5m) was the highlight of Villa’s afternoon, a superb effort from outside the box to drag Smith’s side back into contention for a tense final 15 minutes in front of a boisterous home crowd. 

An assist for Jack Grealish (£6.0m) will be pleasing returns for the 6% of managers who backed the Villa captain, and with a crucial run of fixtures on the horizon to ensure relegation does not become an immediate concern for the club, he is likely to feature prominently and could deliver further attacking returns.

John McGinn (£5.6m) was relentless in the middle of the park for Villa, but the Scotsman was unable to deliver successive attacking returns to build on his goal away at Spurs in Gameweek 1.

The abilities of McGinn and Grealish are certainly documented, yet whether either of these players can be considered a viable and reliable asset for Fantasy managers given Villa’s volatility in the opening Gamweeks of 2019/20 is a question that remains unanswered.

Grealish got his first attacking returns of the 2019/20 season

Villa’s club-record signing Wesley (£6.0m) had a difficult afternoon against Bournemouth, failing to fulfil his role as a capable target-man to hold up the ball and unleash Villa’s faster attacking options such as Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) and Trezeguet (£5.5m). 

It is too early to make a firm judgement on Wesley after just two matches, but from the perspective of early impressions, the Brazilian is unlikely to be a player that is featuring prominently for Fantasy managers, especially given the value that could lie in Villa’s defence alongside the early attacking returns from Grealish and McGinn in midfield. 

Villa’s next three games – Everton (home), Crystal Palace (away) and West Ham (home) – are of huge importance in their bid to have a successful season and prevent getting dragged into a relegation dogfight, and these will be games that are closely monitored by Fantasy managers in assessing whether Smith’s side represent a squad worthy of investment for the early stages of 2019/20. 

Meanwhile, Bournemouth and Howe remain unbeaten and will look to build on their early successes and continue the integration of players such as Harry Wilson who could yet become a differential pick in Bournemouth’s already impressive attacking armoury. 

Reflecting on the game for us, The Villa View’s Dan Bardell said:

A game where neither team really impressed defensively, meaning budget defenders from both sides came away with low scores.

We need to cut out the errors, goalscorer Luiz at £4.5m obviously bagged but I wouldn’t expect him to be scoring too many, he’s a pure a defensive midfielder.

McGinn and Trezeguet looked our liveliest players. McGinn is going to get somewhere between 7-10 goals this season in my opinion. He will play every week and he just suits the Premier League.

For Bournemouth, Harry Wilson looks a shout, especially with Brooks out. Scored from range yesterday and will probably take his share of dead balls. Fraser looked good as well but his price increase puts me off him.

Billing as a budget midfielder doesn’t look advisable, could have easily been sent off yesterday. Good player, but not for Fantasy football.

    In past FPL seasons you could check a mini-league rival's team to see how many transfers (not the actual transfers of course) that that rival had made up to that moment in the current gameweek.

    Does anyone know if you can still do that this season or has that feature been removed?

    Cheers, Joe

      I guess I should clarify. I should have said upcoming gameweek rather than current

    2. Kiwivillan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I used to pay attention to it all the time for cash league purposes. Wouldn't be mad if they got rid

      They removed this feature

        Thanks!

    4. Sharkytect

      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Yeah it's gone. I liked it purely for "guessing" my opponent's transfers. They used to think I could see their team

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

    Heavily considering Robbo -> City/Everton Def. [Zinchenko/Walker/ Mina/ Coleman]
    Got Robbo not only for cs potential, but obviously for the attacking points too but it's not happening just yet.

    Heaton, Pope
    Robbo, Digne, KWP, Lundstram, Kelly
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Martial, Dendo
    Pukki, Jota, Murray

    0.0 itb, 1 ft.

    I know Murray has to go, but thought of one last chance against SOU.

    1. ^Freedom Fighter^
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Sounds good

    2. Skloppy Kops
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Its 2 GW only and we all know LIV were a bit tired the last match.
      So if you don't have the patience to hold on, good luck.

      1. Captain Hindsight
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Personally I kept robbo and VVD and just transferred out Salah for KBD. I’m a Liverpool fan and they way I see it, if Salah massively out scores KDB I’ll be happy anyway 🙂

        The spare cash helped me upgrade Greenwood to Pukki

        I was going to also do Perez to Martial but hadn’t realized he’d gone up 0.1!

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

        Yea solid point, but looking at the season ticker for the next 4~5 games, points potential for Liverpool's defense vs City/Everton is quite justifiable.

        I guess. haha.

    3. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      No spurs could hurt
      Rose or walker imo if you 100% sure about losing robbo

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Didn't see kwp, walker it's then

    4. De Gea is GOAT
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I'm also getting rid of Robbo but i have VVD. One pool def cover is enough for now imo.

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

      thanks lads for the replies. Shall take the bullet and hope Robbo doesn't punish me for the next few game weeks.

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

      This year more than any. We can't have everyone. I am getting Robbo back on a WC.
      I want mane sterling Ken cabellos Pedro trossard lanzini in midfield.

          Nah, save that transfer

  4. Trovsmash
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    In a WC team, What's the general preference?

    A. Trossard or a 6.0 midfielder (4.0 def)
    B. Zinchenko or a 5.5 defender (4.5 mid)

    1. King Huth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      trossard for me

    2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 7 Years

      trossard or mount

    3. Pieterke30

    Just had a bad gw
    Team is:

    Heaton Pope
    Robertson Digne KWP Montoya Diop
    Salah Sterling Perez Robinson Dendoncker
    Kane Pukki Greenwood

    Which one of Perez/Robinson should I ditch? Have 0.8 it and 1 ft left. Or should I just hold and see? Cheers

    1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Robinson to 4.5 maybe? Use the extra 1.0 next GW

      1. Bob.
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Hmm that's an option but don't want two 4.5's rotating in midfield. I could look at getting in cabellos maybe for one of them. Sticking is another option to see which one I will definitely drop!

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Hold Perez a week. He was a Maddison brain fart away from an assist - that might have lessened the hate on here.

        Robinson doesn’t look good to me. But can’t see any likely transfer unless you’re buying into Trossard but that’s bold with Potter.

    2. King Huth
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      robinson first... perez is fine

        Yeah I think I'll save. How did Perez look? I'm travelling so finding it hard to follow everything!

        1. Drop the Dendoncker
          • 5 Years

          He was ok and has two nice upcoming fixtures.

    Too knee jerk? 2FT 0.0 ITB

    A. Auba Vardy Moura >> Rashford Sterling Pukki

      I don't like Pukki's fixtures, but Sterling made me leaning to A too.

      1. King Huth

    Which combo would you pick : (A) Mane & Laporte or (B) KDB & Robbo" ?

    A : Salah + "Mane" + TAA + Sterling + "Laporte" + Zinchenko

    B : Salah + "Robbo" + TAA + Sterling + "KDB" + Zinchenko

        • 9 Years

        May I ask for reasons please? City have favourable fixtures coming but I'm hesitated for where to double.

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          KDB is on form and city have great fixtures so b was for kdb, not sure about double up on liverpool defence tbh

          1. NATSTER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

            Thank you very much. 🙂

        2. Drop the Dendoncker
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          I like Mane's potential explosiveness, that edges it for me.

          1. NATSTER
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            I see. His run in the last season was wonderful and I feel that he still on fire.

            Both KDB and Mane are not on pen, but KDB has some set-piece and City are a bit more aggressive in attacks though.

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      B and Zinchenko won't last too long, i prefer walker

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Liverpool defence look shaky and I think it will be like this, at least, until Alissons returns. That made me leaning to double their attacks, but agree that KDB look great.

    So many options going through my head. Wood, Robinson and/or Perez out. Maybe dump TAA for the funds. Have 2FTs.
    What would you do?

    Ryan, Pope
    Robbo, TAA, Zinch, Dunk, Kelly
    Salah, Sterling, Perez, Robinson, Donck
    Wilson, Wood, Jimenez

    1. Drop the Dendoncker

      Wood out and roll the other trade

  10. Nicoson

    Robertson + barkley to wan bissaka + 7.5 mil??

    1. Drop the Dendoncker
      • 5 Years

      Just barkley out, keep Robbo

  11. Stoneleigh

    WC team - any comments gratefully received. Deliberately gone light at the back, perhaps too much?
    Adrian(4.0)
    Lund, Soyuncu, Dunk, (Montoya, Kelly)
    Sterling, KDB, Mane, Martial, Trossard
    Kane, Barnes (Origi)

    1. Hy liverpool

      Defence is awful
      Origi is waste of money there

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Adrian will be a transfer in a couple of weeks and doesn’t look like a cs anytime.

      Trossard means trusting Potter which is bold right now.

      Double Brighton defence - again bold

      Kelly won’t be a playing option in a couple of weeks

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Very much a 'chasing lost points' squad. How do you get a decent playing keeper when Adrian is gone?

    4. Stoneleigh

    Something is seriously wrong, a friend of mine who uses the app made like 5 transfers right now and the app keeps showing that he has 1 ft, he then went on the website and realized that he had his new players but no points were deducted!! What the hell is going on? Must be a trap surely?

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I already made transfers and the app says that I have a free transfer.

        TV is also wrong

      A bug, yes. The only way it's a 'trap' is if he's stupid enough to think he's cheating the system.

    3. prawin27
      • 5 Years

      Have you updated the app? The same happened to me until I updated the app after which the points were deducted automatically.

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔

        Oh makes sense then, but I wonder why the website shows no hits either?

    Lamela or ceballos?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ceballos for me

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Definitely

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Ceballos is more long term option.
      No one knows who is going to start from son moura lamela next match so i prefer mcginn/ceballos/trossard in this range

      Yep

    Need to get rid of one. Already getting rid of Fraser and no other Spurs cover. TIA 🙂

    A) Wilson
    B) Moura

    1. RoyaleBlue

      I did Wilson and Siggy to Pukki and Son this week

    2. zdrojo187
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      A
      Keep Moura against Newcastle

    3. Hy liverpool

      Excellent move Royal and thanks guys. Any idea if Moura will start?

  18. King Huth

    Are we sleeping on

    Aguero and Mane.... potentially a huge PROVEN differential...

    really tempted but too many premium to fit in...

    1. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't touch Aguero as I think Jesus will get more starts and gametime this year. Mane is tempted though as Liverpool attacks look lethal.

      1. King Huth
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        if only mane is 11.0... he will would price so sexy

  19. Zilla

    How does this look lads?

    Henderson
    Robertson VVD Zinchenko AWB
    Salah Sterling Martial Mount
    Vardy Pukki

    Template bench.

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years

      Vardy is annoying, i have him too

  20. fish&chips

    Hi guys, first post on here but looking for some advice after a shocking gameweek. Would really appreciate your thoughts on the state of my team:

    Pope (4.0)

    Robbo, TAA, Montoya, Taylor, Mings
    Barkley, Fraser, Salah, Perez, Sterling
    Pukki, Wilson

    0.4 ITB, 1 FT

    Barkley has to go so thinking to do a straight swap to Mount. But that will leave me with Fraser & Perez who are both underwhelming and Taylor still out of the team. Any other surgery required? Would quite like to get KDB in but I think it will require too many hits with the price rise.

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

      It took you 9 years to make your first post.
      What took you do long...? 😆

      1. Unliklinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He's chronically shy and now it'll be another nine years. Well done, Mr Sensitivity...

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          Heh, I hope the poor chap has unplugged the internet 😉

        2. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          I hope I didn’t scare him off...

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

      Barkley the main priority as you said...

      1. fish&chips
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Haha I didn't realize I had an account! Just tried to sign up and my email was locked out so I guessed the password. Maybe my previous season results would be a little better if I'd bothered to use the site :p

        OK so Barkley is going. Is Mount a good idea or maybe a downgrade to McGinn? I'm paranoid if I put Mount in Barkley will start over him next week.

        Is it worth trading Fraser out for a hit given City are up next? Or just roll with him. Thanks for the advice guys, much appreciated!

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

          Mount seems to be a good option. Definitely looks the part and has some good fixtures to boot.
          I’d probably roll with Wilson for this game.

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

          Watch Villa Bournemouth highlights. McGinn 6 shots 3 on target. Could've had a hat trick

  21. fpork
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Robbo, Tielemans, Aubameyang -> Zinchenko, Firmino, Son for a -4, would you do it?

  22. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Best Perez replacement?

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

      Trossard, Gross, Kante, Mount, Grealish, Cantwell, Ndombele, Lamela, Ceballos...

      1. GE
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Kante....? Ok..

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

        McGinn better than most of those

    2. Alonso The Great Midfielder
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      im going with mount or maddison if i have money

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

      I'd personally choose
      Trossard (he is a starter, Potter just didn't want him to start immediately on the first gw).
      Mount is good too, Lampard loves him, he's young and fast and on set pieces duties (tho quality can still be improved).
      Grealish & McGinn's upcoming fixtures looks tasty, and they're the focal point in an attack.
      Caballos is someone I'll keep an eye on, so much potential with a cheap price point for a team that expects a win every week (means goals/assists). Only thing is I'm unsure if he's a starter.

      One of the above mentioned will be my 5th midfielder next GW.

  23. Manumana
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Hi ppl. Ive got 2ft's. Any ideas of best moves this week. Much appreciated

    Pope
    Robbo VVD Zinch Digne Lundstram
    Salah Sterling Perez
    Wilson Wood

    Button Fraser Greenwood Dend

    Currenty thiking Wood to Pukki / Fraser to Martial but open to other views.

    Thx a lot

    1. spray
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I think Pope has it pretty tough for the next two... definitely against GW04.

      Pukki's performing a lot better than comparably priced strikers.
      I'd consider Wilson to Pukki, BOU have flattered themselves a bit against AVL, still not sure what they're serving up this season.
      This leave 1.2 - 1.3 ITB... can even use that next week.

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

      Wood and one of your Pool defs to Pukki and Emerson?

      1. Manumana
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Thx a lot

        Wilson Fraser VVD - Pukki KBD Emerson/AWB -4 .0.6 ITB.

        1. Galza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          That looks tasty...!

  24. danlynch13

    Any spurs fan know how much son played in pre season and did he play well?

  25. zhiren
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Thinking of taking out VVD and Perez. Which option makes more sense?

    A) Zinc + Pulisic
    B) AWB + Pulisic
    C) Walker + Mount + 0.5

    1. GE
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      C

    2. spray
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't jump on Pulisic yet.
      Perez deserves more time. His preseason pluses still exist, he just hasn't scored in two games against decent teams. He's integrating.

  26. Squeakybum99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Hurried to get the Kdb rise and got him in. Had to let go of Robbo and Fraser which means saved the fraser drop as well. Didn't jump on the ceba train as I feel he will be rotated long term, bad fixtures and assists this week was comical. Jumping on before price rises mean will have to wait with baited breath till next GW for injuries etc.

  27. GE
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Perez and Jota -> Mount and Pukki good moves here?
    Or do something else? 🙂

    (2FT, 0.0 itb)

    Pope
    Robertson/VVD/Digne/Zinch
    Salah/Sterling/KDB/Perez
    King/Jota

    Bench: Button, Lundstram, Dendoncker, Wickham

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I would keep jota
      King robbo/VVD perez to
      pukki martial dunk (-4)

      Or
      Robbo and king to rashford and dunk

      1. GE

        Thanks mate

    2. Freddiebell

      I just got rid of perez he was awful yesterday

  28. el polako
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    So the big question is what to do with Salah\Mane ?
    Saido looked sharper last 2 games but Salah is Salah - time to be brave and change Mo or stick ?

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      I changed last week on WC. Might bring KdB or Salah(double up with Mane) when I sell Auba.

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Tempted to do the move myself but not sure if got the cohones.

        Good luck.

      2. ppv
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Not tempted to do Auba to Kane? Newcastle looked awful

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

    If you could have one of VVD or Laporte (on wc) who would you have?

    1. RoyaleBlue
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Laporte

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Laporte

    3. mookie
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Laporte
      City: bou; BRI; nor; WAT; eve; WOL; cry; AVL; SOU(5 home games, no big six)
      Liverpool: ARS; bur; NEW; che; shu; LEI; mun; TOT; avl(4 home games, 4 big six)
      Not to mention Liverpool couldn't a keep clean sheet against two relegation candidates.

  30. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 5 days ago

    Love reading through all these panic wildcards when Im not one of them for a change!
    Fraser drop was annoying though, guess I just hold now and do Auba to Kane before deadline.
    Any other suggestions with 1FT ?(apart from wildcard that is haha)

    Heaton
    Robertson / Digne / AWB
    Sterling / Martial / Fraser / Perez
    Auba / Firmino / Pukki
    (McGovern, Dendoncker, Rico, Hanley)

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Nothing imo. Your team looks good.
      Bobby will score again vs his favourait team, a good captain choice this week probably.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Cheers bud, yup liking Bobbys chances v ARS but if I get Kane will have to cap him v NEW after my Pukki party 🙂

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

      Remember to notify me your capt choice! hahaha.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Kane, Sterling, Martial or Firmino...undecided yet 😉

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Kane makes sense this week

      But there again I’d be tempted to hold (I am with similar but much better 🙂 team).

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Perez left my team last night on a wc. He was awful in yesterday's game. I'm Happy with my team now.
