Meet the Manager #17 – Always Cheating’s Josh Landon

Last season’s finish of 1,224 was Josh Landon’s third within the top 5,000 during his nine-year Fantasy Premier League career.

But the Always Cheating podcast co-host’s campaigns haven’t always looked so easy.

In Joe’s latest Meet the Manager interview he finds out Josh’s strategies for success and how he has learned from his mistakes.

The demons of what he calls “that Yaya Toure and Aaron Ramsey season” loom large in his thinking years on. This has helped him snap up emerging bandwagons quickly, and especially before they become the template.

Other ghosts from the past such as Watford striker Odion Ighalo are also revealed during Josh and Joe’s chat about how psychology affects Fantasy managers’ decisions.

As listeners to Josh’s podcast will know, the eye test is crucial to his decision making. After all, the best manager to trust is often ourselves, as Josh describes how he navigates his way through the noise of FPL content, most notably on social media.

Latest football trends, which defenders to select and the ability to spot when a Fantasy game is “throwing a bone” are also explored in detail during this latest episode of a series that began last season to focus on the thoughts of managers with a stellar track record of success.

The chat with Josh is available to view on Youtube here and in the embedded video below.

It is also available on Soundcloud and through other notable podcast outlets. Embedded versions of these are also available below.

    Morning,

    Hope.you are all well, anyone know of any updates in martial?

    Any news if he will be fit for the weekend?

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      none

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      unlikely to hear anything before the press conferences.

  2. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Very much dependent on Allison and walker peters update, but if fell nicely how about following:

    Adrian / button

    KWP / otamendi / pieters / lundstram / Rico

    Salah / sterling / mount / Pepe / son

    Haller / pukki / greenwood

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      KDB seems an obvious pick, but otherwise looks fine

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      KdB over Son.

      Pope is by far the best keeper. Amazing fixtures for a while, great for saving long shots and keeping CSs.

  3. Jimbo-Jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Who is more important to remove, Laporte or Perez? Or both for -4?
    1.5itb so can afford upgrades.

    Heaton
    VVD Laporte Soyuncu Digne
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount Perez
    Pukki

    Greenwood Lundstram Wickham

    1. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Obviously the broken one.

    2. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Laporte, you are likely to have no bench cover if you remove Perez.

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        no need to take a hit Lundstram has a good fixture.

    3. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      And you gotta play Lundstram surely. He doesn't have such a good fixture anytime soon.

    4. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      You could downgrade Laporte to a Burnley defender and get Son for Perez?

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Laporte > 4.5m
      Perez > Pepe/Son

      Take the -4.

      1. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Pieters + Son, for a hit.

  4. hogree
    • 2 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Already done Perez --> Mount.

    1 FT. 0 ITB.

    Pope - Heaton
    VVD - TAA - Digne - Montoya - Rico
    Salah - Sterling - McGinn - Mount - Dendoncker
    Kane - Pukki - Greenwood

    Good to go?

    1. arndff_
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Yes

    2. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah

  5. Christina.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Get Ville Rönka on the show. Just blur out his face.

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Would really like to see this happening

    2. Nabs Kebabs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      It's starting to get boring. They need to get someone with a bit of a different character.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        have they had a girl on?

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Don't think so. They need u on Tina 😉

  6. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    abraham or barnes

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Otamendi I guess.

      1. Hazardous1983
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Own kdb sterling and zinchenko.

        So cant b ota 🙁

        1. Rashford FC
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          VVD?

        2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Damn! Tough one.

          Robbo doesnt seem worth 6.9 ideally would like TAA for 0.2m more.

          Maybe go for a 4.5m def like Pieters or Mings and invest the cash elsewhere thats what id be looking to do.

    2. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Abraham.

      Otamendi

    3. CROCosta
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Barnes,
      Robbo or keep AWB and save a transfer

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Tammy

  7. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Bench?

    A) AWB (LEI)
    B) Lundstram (SOU)

    1. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      A

    2. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      A

      1. KDB4PREZ
        6 months, 22 days ago

        I own both and tend to agree with these guys, that then begs the question is AWB really an asset?

        1. in sane in de bruyne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Don't trust United's defence. So not for me but I could be totally wrong.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      If you're not playing AWB at home against a non top 6 side why is he in your team?

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        I think you can count Leicester as a top6 team theses days

      2. KDB4PREZ
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Leicester could well be a top 6 team this year tho at the expense of united.

      3. KDB4PREZ
        6 months, 22 days ago

        But agree with them sentient hence why I’m looking to ship him out lol

      4. Big Bambora
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Leicester currently are a top 6 side and I think will be challenging to be at the end of the season with the likes of Man U ,Chelsea and Everton.

      5. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        He was my transfer out this week if Laporte wasnt injured.

        Will sell him for Ota next week.

        1. KDB4PREZ
          6 months, 22 days ago

          That’s what I’m looking at also, just need to wait and c the extent of trossard injury first

  8. Rashford FC
    • 7 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Just seen the Belgium highlights. KDB is in serious form. Captain pick locked in!

    1. Big Bambora
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      You have to factor in though that Belgium were playing a pub team.

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        And that Kevin performs much better at home than away

      2. Rashford FC
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Important factor is that Norwich won’t sit deep. They’ll come out and play. Can see City giving them a hiding.

    2. Hazardous1983
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Im tempted to capt him over salah and sterling

    3. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      He'll lay on 5 assists for Kun - my armband is on the latter, essential though Kevin is.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 22 days ago

        You are wrong Andy
        It's going to be Raz 😛

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Five each?

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            I've got all 3 by the way 😉

            1. Rashford FC
              • 7 Years
              6 months, 22 days ago

              You’ll be eating well.

              Bilva brace
              Sterling 10+

            3. Amey
              • 1 Year
              6 months, 22 days ago

              Im jealous bro 😀
              GL
              5 each deal !!

            4. Freddiebell
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 21 days ago

              If you have all three how the rest of your team ? Not good I bet?

      2. Rashford FC
        • 7 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Kun is a great pick. But as I don’t have him. Going with Kevin!

  9. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    Is taa essentia

    1. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Best defender FPL wise.

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Agreed.
        And also probably the best FPL assset under 8.5-9m

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Contender for best value player in the game.
      Yes

    3. Valar(Keith)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Do you believe he ll touch 200? I do. Premium Mids and forwards priced 10+ are the only other fpl players you can be kind of certain will touch 200(though others could.. The odds would be against them) . that in itself shows his value.

      1. in sane in de bruyne
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        If he stays fit he certainly will imo

        1. Valar(Keith)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Yup. I believe so too. Hence why I think he is basically a premium mid/forward disguised as a 7 defender. Baines in his prime was priced 8 I believe. TAA looks a snip at 7

          1. in sane in de bruyne
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Yep, absolute must have for me. One of the first players in my XI.

    4. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I think yes. He's a 7.0m midfielder for Liverpool that gets bonus points for clean sheets. He'll get 200 points this season if he stays fit and plays most games.

  10. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    No way to get him in

    Pope (button)
    Vvd awb zinch digne lundstram
    Sterling salah kdb mount (dendonker)
    Pukki (greenwood jota)

  11. Hazardous1983
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 22 days ago

    1.4m in bank

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year

      Great 🙂

    2. Rashford FC

    Hi.....any views on best trossard replacement please?

    A...James

    B...ceballos

    C....iwobi

    Thanks

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      A - has very much got his shooting boots on

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        But wait til Trossard is ruled out

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 22 days ago

      James

    3. Rashford FC
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Not a fan of any. James at a push.

      But stay away from Man United players. You’ll want them out sooner rather than later.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 22 days ago

        I'm looking to get James next gw for Mount if he fails to score.
        May i ask why do you think so ??
        He's looking good punt at 6.1m i guess

        1. in sane in de bruyne
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          I can only agree with what martial said.
          They dont perform consistent enough for FPL is what I think. I'm not interested in any United players at all and I'm thinking I will stay away the whole season.

          1. jason_ni
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            6 months, 21 days ago

            I can understand your point of view for someone priced at more premium levels like Pogba/Rashford, we are talking about a 6m attacking midfielder who has started most games this season.
            Even if he doesn't score consistently at 6m I think he will be great value.

            1. in sane in de bruyne
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 21 days ago

              Fair enough, mate

    4. maverickga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Save transfer

  13. Amey

    Nice video !
    Would look forward to listen to his podcast now (always cheating right ??)

    1. in sane in de bruyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah, tried a few episodes and I like it

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        6 months, 22 days ago

        Hopefully i take some time out to watch/listen it
        Cheers for information

    2. jason_ni
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Their podcast is probably my favourite one, and the one I make sure I listen to each week. Good info and a bit of humour

  14. ZeBestee

    Daniel James scored another curler yesterday. If Trossard is out;

    Trossard > James for -4?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      for a hit it probably depends on how long Trossard is out for...if out at all.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        is James worth a -4? Long term

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          A lot on here see quite anti-James but I think he is smashing the eye test. If Trossard is out then its a no brainer

          1. ZeBestee
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 22 days ago

            Yeah, on form, can score from outside the box, he is fast albeit lightweight but I think he will do well this season. Not sure on consistency though.

    Anyone wanna join me on an Aguero triple (c) bandwagon this week?

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      It's tempting given form + Norwich defensive injuries. But just prefer the hope of a dgw

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 22 days ago

        I failed many times on a DGW, I would definitely use the chip on a SGW this season.

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 22 days ago

          Same, but I'm a sucker for punishment

            What is your take on rotating cheap defenders? Thinking of getting 4 cheap defenders and TAA on a WC and rotate them in all games.

            Pope
            TAA, Dunk, Mings, Lundstram, Pieters/Soyuncu
            Sterling Salah KDB James/Ceballos Dedoncker
            Barnes Haller Abraham/Pukki

            Worth the hustle or its a risky option?

            1. MTPockets
              • 10 Years
              6 months, 21 days ago

              Looks fairly necessary this season. Prefer to have a couple of better options (and there seem to be a few around 5.4m). Think Lundstram/Soyuncu works but haven't checked Dunk/Mings - but if that rotation works and enables rest of the team you want then why not

          If the fixtures are as good then the odds are still in your favour for a double gameweek, regardless I wouldn’t be putting the triple on Aguero away from home

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Could work out great. Is he on International duty? if not then not a bad choice imo.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Prefer to TC him in a home fixture where I knew Jesus wasn't lurking

    4. Danstoke82
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Tempting but would rather save for a DGW

    5. Pompel

      Already wasted it

  16. De Gea is GOAT

    Probably know what everyone will say but i'll ask anyway. Which WC team guys? Currently on A but damn B looks goooood! Thank you so much.

    Pope
    TAA Digne Mings Lowton Lunds
    Mane KDB Sterling
    Auba Pukki

    or

    Pope
    Zinchenko TAA Digne Mings/Lunds
    Salah KDB Mount
    Aguero Barnes Pukki

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      6 months, 22 days ago

      A, althought not a fan of 5-3-2 formation, do you have Cantwell for a 4-4-2 switch for other weeks when Norwich do not play Man City?

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I do have Cantwell yes 🙂

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 22 days ago

      Not a fan of 5-3-2 esp with that kind of defence, so latter

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • 3 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks MT the formation in A is not set. So it'll be a rotation between Mings, Lunds, Lowton, Cantwell and Hayden based on fixtures.

  17. FOO FIGHTER
    6 months, 22 days ago

    I am pondering City triple up of D. Silva, KDB and Aguero.

    Only Silva's minutes worry me...

    absolutely sick of this price change rubbish,laporte dropping is a random move if we are to believe fpl stats,he has been in the 7th or 8th last page to drop for 6 days on the trot and barely moved whereas the great tony martial has been first to drop for the last 4 nights and still stands firm ,man on the button doesnt own laporte but has tony ,no other reason ,cant be #nothappyinvestor

    1. Big Bambora
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Agree that there should be some transarency regarding how price changes are determined . But surely Laporte had to drop . Martial is a strange one.

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      fplstats is basically a predictor, doesn't necessarily give you assurance. Laporte's drop was imminent anyway.

    3. Gooner Kebab
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Took a hit to take out Martial here, totally bummed.

      1. jason_ni
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I had other issues but the martial injury also pushed me to press the wc at the start of the week, was convinced he would drop and I'd lose value, along with perez/kwp... it's very strange how he is still same price

        1. jason_ni
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          I would say it's not fpl stats fault, they are doing their best to provide a useful free service, and a generally pretty good indicator

    1. Big Bambora
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Not a fan . I think you need TAA and Digne minimum . Players are cheap for a reason.

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Yeah right, but Everton not keeping enough cleanies, money can be spent in attack with 3 mid priced forwards instead. Digne is a bit of a roller coaster, one game it would be 12-15 points, next is 1 or even a negative as we saw a couple of times last season. Agree though he is individually a top pick.

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          Two clean sheets out of four. Still got very good fixtures. Keep Digne

    2. Ask Yourself
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      I’n Doing a 1/3 rotation of Schär, Lundstram and Söyüncü. Gives perfect fixtures for a long time with a nice combo of good defences and attacking threat

      1. ZeBestee
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        I like that. Concerned though with Leicester short term fixtures. Also do you think Newcastle will keep enough cleanies? against lesser sides in particular? Otherwise Schär is a good attacking option.

    What to do here please?

    Pope
    Robertson VVD Digne Montoya
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount
    Pukki Jota

    Button KWP Dendoncker Greenwood

    2 FT, 0.3 ITB

    2. Haller + Rico

    Thanks

    1. Gooner Kebab

      2 imo, as you have 4 playing def.

  21. Big Fella

    Want KDB in my squad
    Ederdson (4.0)
    AWB TAA VVD Digne Rico
    Siggy Sterling Salah Mount (Dendoncker)
    King Pukki (Greenwood)

    I am thinking about

    1. Big Fella
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      *thinking about -8 from King VVD Siggy to Tarkowski Wood Kdb. What's your thoughts?

  23. MöhÂ
    6 months, 21 days ago

    (A)
    Heaton/Pope
    Digne/Kelly/van Dijk/Lundstram/Pieters

    Pukki/Barnes/Abraham

    (B)
    Ryan/Pope

    Or save the WC and stick with:
    Ryan/Pope
    AWB/Kelly/Robertson/Lundstram/Walker-Peters
    Salah/Sterling/De Bruyne/Cantwell/Ceballos
    Pukki/Haller/Abraham
    thanks in advance lads

    1. Big Fella
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Save

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA

      Stick. You’ve got most the big hitters

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ,,,just my take...you need to keep posts short and sweet....95% of the first 2 teams are identical....narrow it down...

      -pick one 4.5m keeper
      -you need TAA
      -not sure what you are paying for pieters...@ 4.6m he is overpriced imo
      -lose Montoya

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        ...in your original team sell AWB, KWP

      I am wcing and currently have 9 of you team, and 6 of your front 8.

  24. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Morning all. Is this worth the hit?

    Moura+VvD >> KDB+Pieters (-4)?

    Heaton
    TAA • Digne • VvD • Zinch
    Salah • Sterling • Mount • Moura
    Pukki • Haller
    (Pope, Greenwood, Dendonk, Rico)

    1. MöhÂ
      6 months, 21 days ago

      yes imo KDB is worth it

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Or any 4.7 defender

    3. Big Fella
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yes, worth it with City fixtures and KDB form

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      You need KDB in that team. Looks a bit weak otherwise.

  25. F0oTBall GuRu

    Play Soyuncu or Cantwell this week?

    I have a sneaky suspicion Leicester might do one over United. A sneaky 1-0 with a Vardy counter attacking goal ala 15/16.

    1. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah. Also Soyuncu might get in on the attacking returns.

      Expect nothing from Cantwell

    2. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah, Soyuncu over Cantwell.

    3. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years

      Maybe, Norwich know no other way than to attack though, I can definitely see them scoring.

      1. MTPockets
        • 10 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Definitely? It's Man City and they didn't score vs West Ham

        1. Gregor
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 21 days ago

          I can definitely see it, doesn’t mean it will happen like!

          They are the home team though and I think they’ll have chances.

    4. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Meh, both very likely to blank

    5. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Can see Leicester winning but not a clean sheet

  27. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    I love that we get 7:30am articles these days, for those of us commuting at this time. But would be good if we could have ones to read - I can’t stream the podcasts on my commute

  28. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 21 days ago

    If Trossard confirmed out

    A Trossard to Cellabos or

    B VVD to Otamendi and Trossard to Mount-4

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      * or actually C Play Cantwell and bench Trossard and have 2 free transfers following week

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Can you not just bench Tross for a week and do the Ota move?

      Both Ceb and Mount are tempting but I’m waiting to see how CL rotationgoes with both of them.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 21 days ago

        Thanks yes could do but and play Cantwell although probably 2 pointer at best. But sensible

  29. FOO FIGHTER
    6 months, 21 days ago

    Thoughts on Richarlison, anyone think he has turned the corner?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Always a good option when he has good fixtures, but one of those who is always disliked on here.

    2. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Quite like him, just don't how would squeeze him into a team. Also Brazil play again tomorrow

  30. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 months, 21 days ago

    On WC and already had Sterling. Couldn't decide between KDB and Aguero so decided to get all 3.

    Just don't ask about rest of the team, ahem. Go big or go home I guess.

    1. MTPockets
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Same, fingers crossed. Regretting it a little but always do

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Fill your boots, I like it.

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Hopefully should pay off, especially with City's run of fixtures.

      Or at least that's how I've convinced myself !

      GL

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Have all 3 for the next 2 anyway. I’m figuring that there’ll be at least 4 appearances between them and that could should be enough. Nervous though given a suboptimal defence and Martial

    5. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 months, 21 days ago

      Currently sat at 333k so no point in me going with a template team anyway.
