    Argh! I know Dilva to Martial is the right move but I just can't bring myself to do it. Talk me into it.

    1. Magic Zico

      Pulisic Maddison

      1. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        I'd have to sell CHO or Tomori to get Pulisic and not really ready to do that yet

        1. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Maddison then

          1. Dthinger
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Hmm. That would allow me to get Patricio too. I think we have a winner!

      Not so sure if it's the right move anymore after Martial played the whole match tonight.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Why?

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          He might get subbed off early.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 16 days ago

            After brace that’s fine then

      2. Regin
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        no way ole drops martial.

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Brighton defence has poor stats in away matches
      Sheff Utd after that won't have Henderson eligible to play

      1. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        yeah, but United are so anemic in attack

        1. Gentle_Turks
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Have been slowly improving. Martial and Rashford playing well together. Scored three tonight.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Partizan though

  2. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 16 days ago

    My plan since WC GW9 has been to have triple Liverpool from GW13. Is it really essential to have three (now already have TAA Mane)? Firmino or Robbo?

    1. MaRooney 5
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Robbo, but do the move for next GW

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Yep GW13 I said

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Or Salah 😉

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Tempted, low TV sadly

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Ohh
          Robbo then

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 16 days ago

            Maybe cheers ... or just go with two ...

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 16 days ago

              That's what i also think
              Cheap Defense doing well atm so not keen on Robbo myself

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 16 days ago

                Yes and Firmino hit and miss ...

    3. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      I have the same two and am looking at Sterling to Salah depending on how he plays the next two. Could be a hell of a differential if his ownership is in the low to mid twenties.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Yep yep

      2. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Ok will need to squeeze somewhere

        1. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          And judging by how slowly his value is creeping down despite the feelings about him on here, I reckon a significant number of the 27% who still have him are dead teams. He's an obvious choice for casuals. Only 4 in the top 50 own him.

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 16 days ago

            I am not too excited onboarding Salah ... time will tell

  3. T.Henry14
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    bottomed sorry

    GTG?

    Pope
    Arnold, Rico, Soyuncu
    Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount?
    Abraham(VC), Vardy(C), King

    (4.0 GK - Cantwell, Lundstram, Kelly)

    Mount or Cantwell?

    1. DA Minnion
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Lundy ahead of both.

      1. clodhopper

        This

    2. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      mount

  4. Lignja
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Who to sell for Mane? Aguero or Sterling. 2ft, have Kdb, Taa

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Aguero due to rotation risk.

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Aguero

    3. Lignja
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      thing is Aguero is differenial in all my mini leagues and im chasing

  5. The Royal Robin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Mount trained today, and he's in the England squad. Is he likely to play against Palace or not?

    1. EMBOLOFAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      yea

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Press conference tomorrow should give a better idea hopefully.

    3. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      I reckon so, i’d say Chelsea’s game is more important than any for England, and Lamps may be able to pull an ‘IB injury’ off to keep him well.

    4. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Young gun recovers like magic 😉

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Asked on nearly every page
      Depends if you have Vardy IMO

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Vardy should not be a factor to decide ...

  8. dunas_dog

    Bench 1

    A Lundstram

    Maddy or Martial?

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Martial OOP but United up and down ... if you feel taking risks. Maddison the safe choice I reckon.

      1. MeatPieSausageRoll
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Maddy coming to Utd soon enough tbf bro

        1. Magic Zico

          😀

  10. Regin
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    after IB.

    1. KDB to Salah
    2. KDB to Sterling
    3. Dunk to TAA

    (Have Robbo & Mane)
    1 means I have no City cover whatsoever.

    kdb seems to play too deep, but then neither salah nor sterling playing like 12m players.

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      4. Pukki to Jimenez/ Firmino/ Lacazette also an option

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 16 days ago

        4
        Jimenez

  11. waldo666
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Argghhh, just not sure at all this week. 2 FT and 1.6 ITB

    Ryan
    TAA AWB Soy Lundstram
    Salah Sterling KDB Mount*
    Tammy (C) Pukki

    (Button Dendonker Rico Greenwood)

    A) Pukki to Jimenez
    B) Sterling to Martial (spend cash after IB)
    C) B and Greenwood to Vardy
    D) Something else

    1. Regin
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      c sounds good. vardy + martial better than sterling & greenwood

      1. Nightf0x
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        Already have mount and kelly, im confused as i will do this tansfers over 2 gwks -4 and -4, also im looking for long run so auba or jimy is not coming this gw

    Lot of love for Lundstram out there but he'll be last sub for me. Cue egg on my face but can't see him getting too much joy there.

      Makes no sense people thinking he's unbenchable.

  18. The EJJ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 16 days ago

    Get rid of Sterling or KDB? lots of people going Sterling but feel like KDB is playing quite deep and Sterling is more of a goalscorer

    1. Pu-li-sick (sic)
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      I'm going Sterling but then I have a fair amount tied up in kdb

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Surely get rid of KDB if you think he is playing deep and Sterling is more of a goalscorer?

  19. Nabs Kebabs

    0 baps for martial so far this season

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 16 days ago

      Style of play maybe.
      Will get one if able to get Winner or two returns.

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 16 days ago

        his style of play is constantly giving the ball away, never links up or finds a teammate 😆

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Exactly

          • 5 Years
          2 months, 16 days ago

          Agree. Also still wastes a lot of good chances in front of goal. Kinda like Raheem Sterling a few years ago. So much potential, just not sure if he's got the football brain or the temperament to go to the next level

          1. kraftwerker
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 16 days ago

            all of these comments are wrong. for someone who never links up or finds a teammate Utd's attacking play doesn't half improve when he plays...

    2. Regin
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 16 days ago

      well he missed so many matches

  20. kuzser

    What's the best move this week guys?

    Not sure whether to go ahead with Firmino or Jimenez 
    2ft, 0.1itb

    3) mount Ota-> pulisic willems/rico
    4) kdb firmino-> mane Jimenez 
    5) ota-> rico/willems/ tomori and do 2ft during IB

    Team is:
    Pope 
    Soy taa lundstram 
    Sterling kdb maddison mount

    Currently on WC. Is it worth getting Kilman or Prodl for 4.0m as 5th defender in case they might get some minutes from time to time or better to go with Reid for 3.9 instead?

    1. Gentle_Turks
      • 2 Years

      Very unlikely any of them play anytime soon.

    Folks, could do with some advise..maddison or martial? the 0.2m saved gives me added flexibility if that makes a diff

    Pope
    Taa Lundy Rico -- Tomori Lascelles
    Sterling Kdb Mount Dilva* -- Cantwell
    Tammy Vardy Rashford

    A: Dilva >> Martial....and then next gw Kdb/Rash >> Mane/Ings
    B: Dilva >> Maddison...and the extra 0.2m allows me to get Salah (over mane if i want). Alternatively, the extra 0.2m allows me to do Lascelles/Rashford >> Robbo/Ings if i want

    2FT's....Lowton -> Lundstram
    Yarmolenko -> 5.2 mid??

    ...Leaving money for Pukki -> Jimenez next GW. Team would look like this....

    Ryan,
    VVD, Soyuncu, Rico, Lundstram
    Salah, KDB, Sterling,
    Vardy, Abraham, Pukki

    How is this WC team looking 1.3M ITB any suggestions?

    Gazza-4.0
    TAA-Robbo-Lund (Lascelles/Rico)
    Salah-KDB-Martial-Mount (Hayden)
    Vardy-Jimmy-Tammy

    Vardy + Lascelles > Kane + Janmaat ?

      very template team besides keeper
      Vardy offers better value than Kane - would prefer Auba over Kane if going for that premium.
      leave vardy/lascelles as newc have some decent home games coming up

        I'm happy with the Sterling for now. Why GL? its only 2 trades away from getting him back in..

    Dilva and Alonso to
    A - Son and Willems
    B - Maddison and Robbo

      If I hadn’t got Vardy (-4) by getting of these both of these players I’d have done A
