      I will never forget selling Wilson in the season Bournemouth got promoted before a game against West Ham.

      Wilson scored a hatrick.

    A) chicken fried rice
    B) butter chicken

    1. Jam0sh
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Probably B

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Butter chicken

    3. SEYPULISIC
      • 3 Years

    4. MoManeTaa

      A with some egg in it

    5. what's my name
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      B by far

  4. FOO FIGHTER
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Chelsea 3rd worst defence in the League, not one clean sheet and Tomori a good option?

    Trap.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Prefer butter chicken

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Yep.
      A bit cheaper and it becomes a bargain. Why not get a reliant Robin instead of a Porsche and enter Le Mans.

    3. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Sorry, not a good option.

  5. drughi
    • 10 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    TV 100.6 and overall rank 1 mil, worse start since I started playing in 09/10 hopefully my patience will give me something back. But what wc team can I really have with that low TV.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Go rogue

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        which means ?

        1. The Knights Template
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          Follow a different, less trodden path

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      10 months, 19 days ago

      If I were you I would go ultra attack on WC, have a look at which players are rising to chase TV.

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Yeah as I said patience is often the key in this game but getting a bit worried, plan is wildcard ahead of gw 9. Hopefully some injuries and new prospects will emerge

    3. Christina.
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Look at top 10k ownership...then bet against it

      Son, Auba, Ota for starters

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Plan is wildcard gw 9 but are those players not highly owned ?

        1. Christina.
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          no....see below...click on tabs at top for ownership and combos

            cheers

      2. The Knights Template

        This

      3. Christina.
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Bobby F
        Wilson
        Richarlison/Siggy

      4. FALSE PROFIT
        • 6 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        All 3 should be top 3 choices. Firmino also.

    4. THFC4LIFE
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      What’s the SV of your team?

    5. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Bet you could still have KDB Mane Son Abraham TAA and some cheaper decent picks with them.
      That's how I would approach it and hope the cheaper alternative to Salah Sterling Kun and Auba deliver.

      1. drughi
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        the thing is I have alot of faith in salah and sterling but yeah I guess I need to do something

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          Captaincy headache. Unless you get lucky with KDB as vice and Lund on the bench.

    6. The Quad
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      I wouldn’t waste your wildcard now, as you said you’ll only get .6 above the 100m budget. Just play aggressive on next week with 2-3 transfers for price rises and use wildcard over international break.

  6. barracuda
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Morning fellas, would drop VVD for TAA for a hit?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Not for a hit

      1. barracuda
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Watch TAA getting 12, 6 for VVD this GW

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • 3 Years
          10 months, 19 days ago

          I fancy Shef to score

          1. Weasel Boy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 19 days ago

            This

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Only if you're drinking

  7. InvertedWinger
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Otamendi Soyuncu (Tomori Lundstram)
    Sterling KDB Son Mount (Cantwell)
    Tammy Pukki Wilson

    1.6 itb and on wildcard. Good to go?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Yep, nice team

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Lovely team, Wilson to Vardy gw9?

    3. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      wilson to firmino ?

    4. Albrightondknight
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Nice team. Shows what I can have if I dropped Mane for Mount until the fixtures turn.

  8. barracuda
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Second/last chance, would you drop Digne for TAA for a hit? WC in tact

    1. MoManeTaa
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      yeah

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

  10. FOO FIGHTER
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Is a sale value of 100.9m good or bad at this point?

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Probably good, mine is 100,6m.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        10 months, 19 days ago

        Thanks

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Does not matter. SV the key. Mine 102.3 but not important now

    3. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Mine is 100.2 so I beat you for terrible SV.

  11. MaRooney 5
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Any worth a hit:

    Ryan, Button
    Digne, Lundy, Rico, Robbo, Zinch
    Hayden, KDB, McGinn, Salah, Sterling
    Greenwod, Tammy, Pukki?

    2.0m ITB

    Thanks in advance!

    1. mookie
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Don't think so

    2. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 19 days ago

      Digne Rico Robbo Zich could go for various reasons.

  12. SomeoneKnows
    • 4 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    Best midfielder that costs 6.9 max to own for the next 2-3 weeks (until Maddison is fit) is McGinn correct?

  13. taylormccormack
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    GTG Wildcard?

    Pope
    VVD - Otamendi - Soyuncu (lundstram, Rico)
    KDB - Salah - Son - Mount (Cantwell)
    Abraham - Firmino - Pukki

    0.0itb, would love to get either Robertson or TAA, and upgrade Cantwell. Best ways to do that?

  14. Mee Pukki-Pukki Long Teemu:…
    • 7 Years
    10 months, 19 days ago

    I know it’s probably a bit of extra work for you, but I wanted to say that I appreciate you putting the players’ shirt numbers in brackets with the Line-up lessons average positions!

    Also, why can’t you see who posted the articles (at least on mobile)?

  15. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 18 days ago

    GTG?

    Ryan
    Ota VVD Lowton
