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.

  1. Rotation Roulette GW 5
    Rotation's Alter Ego

    6 days, 18 hours ago

    FPL returns after an International Break with numerous FPL assets racking up 180 minutes and hundreds of air miles - but for many the air travel doesn’t stop there. After this gameweek we welcome back the opening games of the European tournaments, with 7 Premier League teams having commitments on the continent.

    However, the question for FPL managers is what impact will this have?

    Klopp has already warned that his current low-rotation line-ups will “change completely” after the international break with him warning that he will need his entire squad in this period. They themselves have a tough game in Italy vs Napoli to navigate, one which you’d expect a full strength Liverpool team to play – will this have knock on impacts on his PL line-up vs Newcastle?

    Manchester City have a 1700 mile flight to Ukraine to look forward to, with many speculating that Pep will be looking to get off to a strong start. Will the likes of De Bryune have their minutes managed after an impressive international break with UCL in mind? Chelsea conversely have a home tie to open their UCL group stage, but it’s far from an easy one with Valencia visiting – with an already competitive squad it wouldn’t be surprising to see rotation there.

    Full midweek fixtures:

    Tuesday
    Chelsea (Home) vs Valencia
    Liverpool (Away) vs Napoli

    Wednesday
    Tottenham (Away) vs Olympiakos
    Manchester City (Away) vs Shakhtar Donetsk

    Thursday
    Arsenal (Away) vs Eintracht Frankfurt
    Manchester United (Home) vs Astana
    Wolves (Home) vs Braga

    How much rotation, if any, do you think we’ll see?
    Which FPL players (or teams) would you pick out as being at high risk for losing minutes this week?
    Do we need to improve the strength of our benches?

      Good post
      I think all Man City attackers are rotation risk tbh. Have this back of the mind while ©'ing Ras this gw but the upside is awesome so I'm going to © Raz.
      Re Pool, Midfield rotation is possible, 3 Strikers are almost assured to start as Klopp/Pool want to Win PL & it's not a secret he will not be taking any fixtures lightly.
      So pool players are less risky.

      Re Spurs, i don't care as they are not in my plans atm & Chelsea i think we will see huge rotation in both PL & CL. Hopefully Mount start this gw.
      Have Dunk Cantwell on the bench so kind of relaxed 🙂

        Agreed

        Think I’ll go KdB c this week. Chelsea are the fascinating one to me. My guess is that there’ll be heaps of rotation there - just hard to tell who gets what. Was the Super Cup line up a clue? Neither Tammy or Mount started.

        1. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years

          Do you have sterling ?

          I’m a KDB owner since Gw1, but I d note that he has contributed 4 weeks out of 4. I captained him GW 4 and i ll be skipping giving him the armband this week. Despite his brilliance he is due a quiet week.

        6 days, 17 hours ago

        City is a minefield. In my head I see City playing Jesus and Mahrez vs Shakhtar and letting them run wild for a while, but hopefully Sterling will get a rest then and not vs a very depleted Norwich.

        Think Mount could play both games fairly comfortably, but he's going to miss a game at some point eventually - next week would be my current guess. Think Tammy could be a decent shout though - can see Giroud being given European games again, but it largely depends on strategy.

        My bench is pretty poor, so considerably less relaxed 😉

        1. pingissimus

          Does C HO change the equation in your view? I’m finding it hard to think he won’t be a regular in the PL side. I just don’t see where he fits right now.

          1. Rotation's Alter Ego
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            4 wingers, 2 spots. Would expect CHO and Pulisic to be first choice, but I can see CHO and Willian being rotated given Willian's history with the club. Lampard seems to like Pedro too, so reasonable to think him and Pulisic might rotate.

            Basically - wouldn't want to guess until I see some games! Might take a little for CHO to get up to game speed anyways.

            Will just add - rumblings of discontent between Willian and Chelsea. Possible that it will (and already is) limit his minutes. Just rumours right now though.

        2. Amey

          Ha ha
          Agreed with everything.
          Completely useless to predict about Baldy 😀
          Salah © is way safer bet though. That's a tempting thing this gw

        But why (c) Sterling and risk the cameo when Salah has NEW. If Salah had a worse fixture than maybe, but it seems silly to me to risk it. Sterling will likely get pulled early too.

          Thank you
          Might just © Salah

      May as well take Klopp at his word, and we already know Pep's approach, Wolves risk and Emery randomness. Liverpool vs Napoli as a fixture seems most concerning. Esp Firmino playing for Brazil tomorrow. We don't yet know if TAA will play tonight but could make an argument either way on him.

      1. Rotation's Alter Ego
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah agree with that - think Firmino could be at risk. Still think TAA will play given how deep Newcastle will sit, feels smarter to play Gomez vs Napoli if he's going to play one of the two at full back.

        Best laid plans and all that though.

        1. Markus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Yeah I'd say Firmino 50:50 for weekend. This would be the game to rest him for. Wasn't it origi that broke the deadlock against Newcastle last year too? They've only really got 1 main backup defender though, so would seem to make most sense to play gomez in midweek.

          1. Rotation's Alter Ego
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 8 Years
            6 days, 17 hours ago

            I think he scored the winner in a 3-2 if I remember correctly. If Newcastle are going to sit deep, having a decent finisher like Origi on standby wouldn't hurt at all.

    3. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I think we could see one or two surprise benchings at City and Liverpool this weekend.

      Last season it was Firmino and Sterling right after the international break. Mane and De Bruyne too but that was more about fitness than rotation.

      1. avfc82
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        I'm not sure if we can take anything from this, but just for reference, these were City and Liverpool's PL starting 11's after the first international break of last season, just before the Champions League kicked off.

        City - Ederson, Stones, Kompany, Laporte, Mendy, Fernandinho, Bernardo (De Bruyne 58), Silva (Foden 75), Mahrez, Sane, Aguero (Jesus 66)

        Liverpool - Alisson, Gomez, Lovren, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson (Wijnaldum 45), Shaqiri, Milner (Firmino 77), Salah, Lallana (Fabinho 69), Sturridge

        1. Markus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Was TAA injured at that point? Who were they both playing in champions league/league? That's a weak pool side!

          1. avfc82
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            6 days, 17 hours ago

            He was an unused sub.

        2. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 days, 16 hours ago

          Sorry, I mistakenly put 'before the Champions League kicked off' above, they were in a fact a little deeper into the Group Stage.

    4. AndyCook
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Attacking players often get some minutes even when benched so I think the value of a bench is overestimated when rotation strikes, most players have at least one playing benched defender in case tostados strikes there

      1. AndyCook
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Rotation strikes*

      2. MTPockets
        • 10 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Good point. Big difference between zero minutes/actually benching a rotation risk in FPL vs. getting limited mins

      3. tuvok
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        6 days, 14 hours ago

        Mmmm tostados

    5. FPLGraham
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Can see Liverpool and City trying to effectively get this weekend's games won early on with strong initial line-ups. Gundogan illness makes me more confident of KDB starting along with Rodri and Dilva.

      Interesting that Shaqiri pulled out of int'l duty to "focus on getting fitness for Liverpool" (or similar) so imagine he plays some kind of part this week - whether off bench this weekend / starting Napoli... but would still bet on the front three to start vs NEW/che.

      Spurs need to get results in the league, can only see them going full strength - however that looks. Might feel he can get result in Greece with fringe-y players like Moura.
      Chelsea similar.

      United surely prioritise Leicester - that's such a big game for them now.

      TL:DR - I don't think any big assets will miss out starting this week but reckon for LIV/MCI there's certainly a growing possibility of minute management & hence might see them get 'out the traps early.'

      1. In a Rush
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Good points here I think fpl Graham, minutes managed but hopefully when score lines are handsome and points are in the bag.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        LFC midfield is far more at rotation risk than attack and defence. Gomez needs to stay fit as if anything happens to VVD or Matip then Lovren has to come in. Lovren is out of the picture. Gomez is not effective enough at RB as Klopp needs his fullbacks to bomb forward. Maybe Gomez will play RB in the CL.

        Only rotation risk defensive wise I can see in EPL is Milner for TAA but then again, Milner better in midfield for his workrate.

        1. Goonerly
          • 1 Year
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Do you think Matip will start against Newcastle?
          Considering bringing him in, but worried about possible rotation.

        2. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 days, 15 hours ago

          Agree re LFC midfield. Gini just played 90 mins x2
          Not sure if Keita fit yet but think that’s where the rotation as usual could come from. Depends what happens tonight for England but Ox could start at the weekend
          Expect Origi to be involved at some point

      3. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        See where you’re coming from but I’m expecting both KdB and Sterling to miss one each of the next two. Pep is fairly consistent in resting his key mids in non top 6 match ups. They never miss the big ones.

        It’s not as if there isn’t firepower there with Mahrez, Bilva and Foden.

      4. Werkself - L5,D7
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        6 days, 10 hours ago

        Agreed as to Liverpool. A couple of seasons ago Klopp got burned starting weak(er) sides ahead of CL matches. Since then he has generally fielded strong sides in the run up PL matches, even against weak opponents. OTOH, Pep's bench is so deep that there's no such thing as a weak team. I fear Sterling being benched, although I think Sane being injured reduces those odds. And I also think Gundo's injury will keep KDB from rotation this week. Zinchenko is definitely a concern, though.

    6. Markus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      There will surely be a fair amount of rotation but tricky thing is working out who will play Europe and who will get the league.

      Its a proper minefield!

      The ones you'd hope for would be that gomez plays rb vs napoli, some of more experienced Chelsea (giroud/willian) play vs valencia, but its kind of guess work.

      Man city - not a clue.

      Spurs will play strong side and rotate a little less to start with in key positions I think.

      Man utd will play b team in Europe, plenty of choice aside from cf. Might start rashford/martial and bring on Mason but would expect it not to affect their league minutes

    7. SADIO SANÉ
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      absolutely no idea - bit annoying that City/Liverpool face their main rivals first, but I'm fairly sure City could wheel out a genuine B team in most of their CL group games and still get 12 points

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        be interesting to see what happens with the Aguero/Jesus situation, could really do with some help from Pep there 😉

          Already got my hopes sky high for the pressers. Looking forward to learning absolutely nowt 😉

    8. FPL Virgin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I like the look of D Silva and John Stones who have been rested for 2 weeks.

      But can Pep and Klopp really field weaker teams in the league? If one of them take their foot off the gas, the other will capitalise.

      1. Markus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Norwich feels like one that any man city team could score plenty against. Foden rodri Dilva bilva jesus mahrez could easily score plenty. Sterling is at risk imo, no need to start him for this one

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 14 hours ago

          That would make me want to get rid of Sterling for Pepe tbh. But then if he starts vs Norwich he could score 20+

      2. pingissimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Pep did this last season if you look at the matches Sterling missed. They were “soft” games before key big fixtures.

        He has way more firepower at his disposal at the pointy end of the pitch. Mahrez Dilva Bilva Jesus and Foden are all at least one level up on the marginal players at Liverpool. They may all be to sone extent second choices but scarcely part of a weak attack

    9. kime67
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Mendy will get some minutes 100%

    10. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      My worry of not owning City/Pool assets outweighs my fear of them being rotated.

      Can't do a lot about cameos but I'm on WC, will get my bench sorted and pick the best FPL players I think for points. If they are no shows I can't really do that much about it other than making sure I have as nailed a squad away from CL/Europa players. This is where players like Vardy and Digne just as examples become strong options.

    11. GreenWindmill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      As a non KDB owner I feel like Pep is my only hope but I fully expect him to play and run riot. Have a nasty feeling Sterling will be rested though.

      1. Giggs Boson.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 days, 16 hours ago

        Sterling had restricted game time against Bulgaria. Hopefully the same happens against Kosovo...

        1. GreenWindmill
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 days, 15 hours ago

          Fingers crossed, but even then I still feel Pep might rest him ahead of the CL tie. Nothing we can do about it though, just have to trust to luck.

      2. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 8 hours ago

        KDB due a rest for CL IMO

  2. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 18 hours ago

    Is Rico to Lundstram worth bothering with for a FT?
    Would play Lund this week over Cantwell, and then he'd give me a second playing sub alongside Doncker for the forseeable.

    Would quite like to roll the FT and use it to shift some funds around next week, but have just spotted this option and it looks like a solid squad building move in anticipation of CL rotation. Any thoughts appreciated.

    1. Jimmy Floyd
      • 1 Year
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I think it is, Lundstram is a great bench option and this is the week you actually want to play him

    2. In a Rush
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      If Dendoncker is your only playing sub I feel it’s a good move, lundstram the best cheap playing defender. So yeah all in a good squad building move and a better option than Cantwell this week.

      1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Cheers both, I think I'll have a look at what I could hypothetically do with 2 FTs next week and if nothing jumps out at me I'll go for it.

        1. In a Rush
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Yes good call have a look and assess your options before going for it.

  3. OzilFozzil
    • 6 Years
    6 days, 18 hours ago

    Would I be crazy to get rid opt out of getting KDB for Silva?

    My team value is rubbish so having KDB means no Haller or no Zinc/Otamendi

    Man I hate wildcards! lol

    1. AndyCook
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Yeah, I’d rather opt for no Sterling..

      1. AndyCook
        • 2 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Or Salah/Aguero. Assuming you have a couple of these

        1. OzilFozzil
          • 6 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          I can't lose Sterling maybe downgrading Salah to Mane but not sure how comfortable I am with that... Salah is my security blanket in terms of captaincy

  4. HarryB29

    It doesn’t show up on the ticker as Chelsea at home is bizarrely counted as a red fixture for attack but aren’t Wolves entering a bit of a fixture swing. I certainly wouldn’t mind Jim or even Jota perhaps for most of these:

    Chelsea h
    Palace a
    Watford h
    City a
    Soton h
    Newcastle a

    The home fixtures look juicy in any event.

        True

        Jim though is ticking along much as he did last season - unnoticed on here almost completely. Not the same value of course as 5.6 but still

        1. MTPockets
          • 10 Years

          That's fair although I'm not ready to spend 7.4m on him right now regardless

    a) vvd, digne, lanzini
    b) 4.3 defender, digne, pepe/son
    c) vvd, 4.8 defender, pepe/son

    which option???

    1. In a Rush
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      A for me

    2. gergin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      b with Son

      1. gergin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Is not Matip/Digne/Son an option?

    1M ITB - G2G of change needed?

    Ryan
    VVD / Digne / TAA / Zinchenko / Lundstram
    Salah (C) / Sterling / KDB
    Pukki / King

    Heaton / Greenwood / Cantwell / Deondoncker

    1. In a Rush
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Good to go

    2. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Looks good to me. King to Barnes but that’s debatable

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Captain KDB or sterling for me. I see salah getting 3 pts this week

      1. Joyce1998
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        its Anfield 😉

  8. Patrick.22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Haller or Abraham?

    Already have Mount. Have the money for Abraham but would be a -4 for Haller.

    I’m tempted on a -4 due to security of starts and no European action.

    What’s your thoughts?

    1. In a Rush
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I’ve gone for Haller on wild card for the reasons you stated

      1. Patrick.22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Worth a -4 over Tammy though?

        1. In a Rush
          • 2 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          It is if Tammy gets rotated but obviously only time will tell whether that happens.

        2. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Tammy on fore at the moment. He's their main man atm. No chance of him being rotated anytime soon. Giroud just played in and international so he'll be on the bench again.

    • 3 Years
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Whom to prioritize selling first in order to accommodate Otamendi? No major issues with my team otherwise.

    A) AWB

    2. HarryB29
      • 1 Year

    2. Marmalade Forest
      • 2 Years

      SSFF can get in the bin. Pick a zombie team and forget about it.

      Pope
      Coleman/Digne/Zinc/Maguire

      rico doesnt start always? so has to be a for me with soyuncu

    Some may have noticed that Watford changed its manager from Javi to Quique.

    Last time Quique was around, he had Ighalo & Deeney that raked up goals and decent but porous defence.

    If he can give us a Pereyra or Deulofeu as fantasy options again, that'd be nice.

  18. Jafooli

    How bad is AWB injury? So be okay for weekend?

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Should be fine

  19. gooner_112233445566
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    current team

    pope, (button)
    vvd, digne, lund, (montoya), (rico)
    salah, kdb, sterling (c), mount, lanzini
    jimenez, pukki, (greenwood)

    1.2 itb, 1 ft..

    a) otamendi in for montoya and start him instead of lund
    b) save ft so have 2 ft's for next week

    1. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Rather change jimenez to Abrahams. Also rather Lundstram play than Otamendi.

    2. Patrick.22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      B

      Lund will punish you otherwise. He did me! Lol

      1. gooner_112233445566
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        yes thinking of saving ft this week then having 2 to play with next

        1. Patrick.22
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          6 days, 17 hours ago

          Good to see if Ota does take CB slot first too. It is Pep!

  20. Patrick.22
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Ryan
    TAA / Lund / Digne
    Mane / KDB / Sterling / Mount
    Barnes / Pukki / Abraham
    Button / AWB / Cantwell / Mohamady

    Am I G2G? Bring Ota in for AWB next week and put Lund back on the bench?

    1. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      Very nice team. Well balanced.

      1. Patrick.22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Thanks mate

    2. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I wouldn't bench Lundstram

      1. Patrick.22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Will be benching him after the Southampton game. Tough fixtures after that and he’s not looking like attacking reruns in every game

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      P.'s. Rather have pope than Ryan though.

      1. Patrick.22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        6 days, 16 hours ago

        Same! Lol

  21. Konnamoi

    Pope
    Digne-VvD-TAA-Lundstram
    Salah-Sterling-KdB-Mount
    King-Pukki

    Heaton, Rico, Greenwood, Cantwell

  22. gooner_112233445566
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    rank these forwards in order of best to worst to have over next 6 gameweeks..

    a) jimenez
    b) pukki
    c) abraham
    d) barnes
    e) haller
    f) kean

    2ft. 0ib
    Ryan
    Vvd, digne, awb
    Salah (c), Sterling, kdb, tross, mcgin
    Rashf, pukki

    Lunds, greenwood, rico

    A) rash to haller/barnes
    B) trossard to ceballos
    C) rashf+awb to barnes and taa
    D) b+c for a hit

  24. Woody01
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    King > Barnes?

    Seems like a sideways move as both have good fixtures but it’s very tempting

    1. kime67
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      yes

    2. gooner_112233445566
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      yes not worth it for me

    3. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      id keep king for this week anyway

    4. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 8 hours ago

      Barnes will regress no doubt, but how much is the question. Will Wood start scoring also, at 0.4 less?

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 days, 8 hours ago

        Good question. Woods will start scoring at some point and it's making multiple decisions like this (deciding when) over 38 weeks that contributes to a good, bad or indifferent FPL season.

  25. gooner_112233445566
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    pick 2 of these forwards to have over next 6 gameweeks.. (already got mount in my team)

    a) jimenez
    b) pukki
    c) abraham
    d) barnes
    e) kean

    1. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      C D

    2. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I’d add in Callum

      Those fixtures couldn’t be juicier really - 5 wide open defences after Everton in 5. These fixtures look better than the SU Villa opening pair imo.

  26. Freddiebell
    • 3 Years
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    5.2itb. Would you just do Awb > TAA or -4 and do Awb > van dyke and pukka > Aub

    Pope/
    Dunk/ Awb/ Digne/ Lundstram/
    Mane (vc)/ Sterling (cap) / KDB/ Lanzini/
    Abraham/ pukk/

    Subs Button/ Wickham/ Douglas luiz/ Kelly/

    1. gooner_112233445566
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      i would do b, but maybe just do one change this week and the other change next week to save losing 4 points?

      1. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Thanks. Was thinking along them lines myself.

  27. Original Pirate Material
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Sterling or Aguero for the armband at the weekend if you own both?

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      aguero for me. rested. on fire. on pens.

  28. Stokelona
    • 2 Years
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Will there be a scout cast tonight? Occurred to me it would clash with the England game.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      i think so

  29. FOO FIGHTER
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Liverpool want to stay ahead, City want to get ahead. Not sure we will see many changes for Liverpool as Newcastle will be parking the bus. Pep roulette may rear it's ugly head though being Norwich are terrible defensively.

    Think Sterling more at risk than KDB. Aguero most likely to start as no Internationals.

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      parking the bus or not I m going Salah captain 🙂

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        6 days, 17 hours ago

        Correct, me too 🙂

  30. simong1
    6 days, 17 hours ago

    Lineup ok for this week? Anyone have any idea if Martial might be fit?

    Pope
    AWB - VVD - Digne - Zinchenko - Lundstram
    Sterling (c) - KDB - Salah - Martial
    Jota

    Bench: Button, Pukki, Dendocker, Greenwood

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      6 days, 17 hours ago

      I’d play Pukki over AWB

      Though I suspect Pep will make that decision irrelevant
