Kane and Sterling impress as Mané subbed for Senegal

The final international break of 2019 is already winding down for some countries.

England played their last Euro 2020 qualifying match with a number of Fantasy Premier League assets impressing.

We’ve got all the latest in this Scout Notes article.

Euro 2020 qualifying

Kosovo 0-4 England

England saw Kosovo off by a 4-0 scoreline on Sunday

Harry Kane (£10.8m) and Raheem Sterling (£12.0m) were both in ruthless form for England as they beat Kosovo 4-0.

The scoreline perhaps flattered the Three Lions who did not dominate the final match of Euro 2020 qualifying as much as Gareth Southgate would have liked.

However, his key individuals displayed a clinical edge at the right times, especially in the closing stages of the encounter.

Leading the 4-3-3 attacking, Kane got himself a goal and an assist, lurking at the back post to make it 2-0 in the 79th minute and setting up substitute Mason Mount (£6.8m) for his first-ever England goal.

Sterling’s strengths in this one, deployed on the right flank of the attack (usually playing on the left for his club), was his creativity.

It was his cross that was deflected into Kane’s path for 2-0 and he played a perfectly weighted through-ball to substitute Marcus Rashford (£8.6m).

The recent resurgence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) continued in England’s final Euro 2020 qualifier.

He provided the assist as Harry Winks (£5.3m) waltzed through the Kosovo defence early-on to make it 1-0.

That attacking return came after five goals in his previous six outings for club and country.

Unfortunately, it appears that Jurgen Klopp is keeping the former Arsenal man mostly for competitions outside of the Premier League. Oxlade-Chamberlain last started a league match in Gameweek 5 and has managed just 66 minutes since Gameweek 9 from three substitute appearances.

England were less convincing in defence with Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) caught out of position when losing the ball on occasion.

Tyrone Mings (£4.6m) also made several sloppy errors after a less than impressive outing at Wolves in Gameweek 12.

Dean Henderson (£4.7m), Jordan Pickford (£5.5m), John Stones (£5.3m), Danny Rose (£5.4m), James Maddison (£7.5m), Tammy Abraham (£8.0m) and Callum Wilson (£7.8m) were all unused substitutes.

England XI (4-3-3): Pope; Chilwell, Mings, Maguire, Alexander-Arnold (Tomori 84′); Winks, Rice, Oxlade-Chamberlain (Mount 72′); Hudson-Odoi (Rashford 59′), Kane, Sterling.

Luxembourg 0-2 Portugal

Bernardo Silva provided an assist in Portugal’s win over Luxembourg

There was plenty of Premier League presence for Portugal as they beat Luxembourg on Sunday.

Playing in a central midfield role, Bernardo Silva (£7.9m) provided the assist for their first of the night.

He played an excellent chip through ball to Bruno Fernandes who lashed home to make it 1-0.

Diogo Jota (£6.1m), who came on in the 71st minute came close to finding the net himself as he bundled an effort towards goal, only for Cristiano Ronaldo to smash it over the line.

Rui Patrício (£5.2m) and Ricardo Pereira (£6.3m) played 90 minutes while Joao Moutinho (£5.3m) replaced Pizzi in the 62nd minute and Rúben Neves (£5.3m) featured in stoppage time.

Serbia 2-2 Ukraine

West Ham winger Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) played 90 minutes for Ukraine as they drew 2-2 in Serbia.

Crystal Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic (£6.7m) was involved sparingly in the match, coming on for the final 14 minutes.

Albania 0-2 France

Mendy got 75 minutes under his belt against Albania

Just three Premier League players started for France in their 2-0 win over Albania.

Moussa Sissoko (£4.9m) and Olivier Giroud (£6.6m) were the only two that got 90 minutes with the latter hitting the post.

Benjamin Mendy (£5.9m) started the night at left wing-back in a 3-4-1-2 system but was replaced by Lucas Digne (£5.9m) after 75 minutes as he continues his rehabilitation following recent lengthy spells on the sidelines.

Tanguy Ndombèlé (£5.9m), N’Golo Kanté (£5.0m), Matteo Guendouzi (£4.7m) and Kurt Zouma (£4.7m) were all unused substitutes.

Andorra 0-2 Turkey

The ever-increasing ownership of Çağlar Söyüncü (£4.9m) will have been pleased with Turkey head coach Senol Gunes over the weekend.

With the Crescent-Stars having already booked their place at Euro 2020 with a 1-1 draw against Iceland last week, the Leicester centre-back was one of nine players left out of the squad for Sunday’s trip to Andorra.

That should see Söyüncü return to the King Power Stadium fresh and ready for a Gameweek 13 visit to Brighton.

Everton centre-forward Cenk Tosun (£5.7m) ended up missing both of Turkey’s matches through a groin injury.

Moldova 1-2 Iceland

Gylfi Sigurdsson (£7.5m) had a mixed outing on Sunday as Iceland beat Moldova 2-0.

Despite scoring in the 65th minute, the Everton midfielder missed yet another penalty later in the match.

Sigurdsson’s record from the spot has been particularly poor recently and this latest miss is his fifth from a possible nine that he has taken for club and country since the 2018 World Cup.

2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying

Mané played just 45 minutes of Senegal’s win over Eswatini

Sadio Mané (£12.1m) owners need not worry too much about his half-time withdrawal from Senegal’s 4-1 win over Eswatini.

There had been fears over the Liverpool man’s fitness ahead of a Gameweek 13 trip to Crystal Palace.

However, the reason for Mané coming off at half-time was precautionary in nature, the player picking up a yellow card and his international coaches hoping to avoid a suspension in the second period.

Meanwhile, Cheikhou Kouyaté (£4.9m) played 90 minutes for Senegal.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) played 90 minutes for Gabon as they beat Angola 2-1, registering an assist for Denis Bouanga.

Alex Iwobi (£5.7m) scored for Nigeria as they had to come from behind to beat Lesotho 4-2.

Southampton’s Moussa Djenepo (£5.2m) found the net for Mali as they won 2-0 while Naby Keïta (£5.8m) played 90 minutes for Guinea as they beat Namibia by the same scoreline.

International Friendlies

Lithuania’s 1-0 win over New Zealand was one of only two international friendlies on Sunday but there was no FPL involvement for either Chris Wood (£6.2m) or Winston Reid (£3.9m).

After their involvement in the 3-1 defeat to the Republic of Ireland on Thursday, they were both given the remainder of the international break off.

The other friendly match was between Brazil and Argentina’s respective Under-23s squads, with Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli (£4.5m) playing the best part of an hour.

      48 hours before decisions can be made.
      Lascelles out for 6 weeks and you need the bench over this period. Change him for Willems. No Lundstrum?

  3. Hotdogs for Tea

    Lost on last page ...

    Two free transfers guys, what to do ? 0.9 in the bank.

    Should really sort out Diop and Lascalles but a bit fed up with Mount and James too. Fancy 433 with nice fixtures coming up for a few teams including Leicester.

    Pope
    Aurier Soy Lund
    Mount James Salah KdB

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        yes, a similar thought, but if Martial is starting on on fire for a little more cash, I will want to swap James to Martial

  4. FirMinaMiMo

    Armband picks this gw

    A Vardy

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Do F if you are looking to make up ground and Son gets home early.
      These are the weeks Captain picks can have the greatest impact.
      I am C Mane by the way but would punt on Son if I had him.

      1. fish&chips
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I agree Son is also a good shout and could rip it up.

    3. fish&chips

      Sterling

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Hazard handed over the Troll captains armband to Sterling.

    4. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      I have a gut feel too about TAA scoring big. clean sheet + assist.

    5. jia you jia you

      Have four of those plus Richarlison...tough this week but think it has to be Sterling to punish his sellers for me.

    6. Dannywaz

    Repost sorry. Hoping for a comment from Andy:
    Driving home in heavy traffic yesterday and though to listen to a couple of podcasts.
    The first one was meet the manager with Marc Southerns. The one thing that stuck in my brain was "accept your mistakes" Don't just hold onto a player because 2 weeks previously you took a hit to get him in.
    The next podcast was Andy with the 2 Cockney boys.
    Andy says he needs Lundstrum but it does not feel right taking a hit when he got Maguire in 2 weeks before. Andy, listen to your buddies.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I back Andy on this Maguire (shu, AVL) over Lundy (MUN, wol).

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Not saying I don't but he bought Mag and since then has only talked about Lundy.

  6. fish&chips
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Bench one

    McGinn (NEW)
    Lund (MUN)
    Chilwell (bha)
    Abraham (mci)

    Currently on Chilwell but not sure its the right call

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Love to know the rest of your side.

      1. fish&chips
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Pope, 4.0
        Robbo, TAA, Lund, Chilwell, Lowton
        Sterling, KDB, Madds, McGinn, Cantwell,
        Tammy, Jimmy, Vardy

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          OK OUCH!. Cantwell Lowton I presume you already put on the bench. See your predicament. That is why I never doubled up on Pool defense. Probably Maddi or one Pool defender. Hard one.

    2. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Toughie, have a similar one myself this GW (James, Lund, Janmaat, Mount), but I'd prob bench Lundstram out of those.

      1. fish&chips
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Seem to have a benching headache every week at the moment. Probably a sign that I need to downgrade someone.

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Not really. Well set up for the busy "rotation/injury" period.

    3. Binny
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Probably Chilwell or McGinn imo - but if Evans is out from Lei def then def Chilwell

  7. Binny
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Yellow Flag for Evans (LEI) - anyone know what the 'illness' refers to?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Cold or flu most likely

        1. Binny
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 8 days ago

          ah ok. many thanks

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Tnks. I have never understood why a cold and Flu are taped together. Flu will keep him out for 2 weeks. A cold 2 days.

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

    Have 1 FT and thinking of shipping out Sterling. Which of the below 2 options is better?

    A) Sterling + McGinn -> Salah + Dendoncker + 1.1
    B) Sterling + Greenwood -> Maddison + Rashford + 0.2

    Rest of squad:
    Pope
    TAA // Tomori // Lundstram // Soy
    Mane // Sterling // KDB // Mount
    Tammy // Vardy

    Skeletenburg // Rico // McGinn // Greenwood

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B easily with limited Salah news. Lose a good player to get Dendoncker doesn't sound great.

      1. fish&chips
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Also agree B out of those options, but it will leave you with one of McGinn or Mount on the bench every week.

        1. zhiren
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Yea man but probably going to be McGinn then!

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      B but I don't understand the Tomori love. Got points recently but Rudiger back soon after the Citeh game.

    3. Dannywaz
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Then that makes tomori better lol he plays alongside rudiger

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        The $64 million question.
        I think it fair to say a premier concern one should have going into this period is a good bench.
        CHO Pulisic Tomori are good examples of holding back on the during this period.

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Love the Rashford pick. Could be a huge differential.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Rashford game improves dramatically when Martial is on the pitch. Martial has the edge due to price, position and historical points per minute. I also think he is growing up and sulking is less prevalent in his game. I think big names in the dressing room impacted on his attitude. If Martial and Rashford are treated like no 1 choices, I think ManU standards will improve too.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I hope they can show some consistency though. Pogba should be back in a couple of weeks at the most which should help a lot. I'm most likely transferring in Martial this week.

          1. zhiren
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Yes, I noticed Rashford's improvement and that's why I want to bring him in. Not sure if I will get punished for shipping Sterling!

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

      taking a hit to remove Sterling at home to CHE = MADNESS 😉

      1. zhiren
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        ah sterling has a record against chelsea?

    6. baggs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      b by a long way

    7. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldn’t sell sterling

  9. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Heart says Sterling will punish his sellers
    Head says Vardy will continue his form
    Gut says Mane will get DDs
    Balls say Richarlison will rip it up

    ...this one is going down tothe wire!

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Sterling has rewarded his sellers every week for about 11 gameweeks now, so not sure one good gameweek score will really count as “punishment”

      Even a stopped clock is right twice a day 🙂

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        still would much rather have him than Salah atm 😉

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Hazard handed over the Troll armband to Sterling this year.

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Lmao

    2. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Mane imo

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I'll likely side with a home captain but perma-capping Mane would be a good move imo!

        1. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Pool Citeh and Chelsea are the only sides home/away does not matter too much. Mane can cover both.

      1. Karan14

        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yeah I agree with that. Could go either way with them.
        Sterling more explosive and a bigger differential so want to stick with him for now. But want to keep the option open to get Salah if needed and if I sell Sterling that would make it tough for me.

      Can you do A with Mané, Martial and Ings instead? I prefer Martial to Rashford being out of position and think Ings could be great value with their upcoming fixtures.

    Martin Atkinson will officiate Manchester City vs Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium this weekend.

    VAR: Andre Marriner

    I mean . . . . I'm about this close to putting a bet on a Red Card, jesus.

    1. Differential (c)

      Atkinson has handed out 33 yellow cards in his previous 13 matches, sending off one player and awarding four penalties in the process.

          Not sure about last season, but 3/4 of the penalties he's awarded this season were given to the away team.

      I prefer Maddison and think the full backs are similar, but Robertson’s injury doubt is a worry you probably don’t want with the fixture pile up.

    Good morning, my LMS league is down to the final 2. Who do you guys think is the more solid pick to win, Everton at home to Norwich, or Liverpool away to Palace. The other guy is probably going to use Arsenal at home to Saints (I’ve used arsenal). Cheers

    Hi all,

    I’m surprised that I’m not seeing more people going for Aubameyang at the moment. Next 4 fixtures are against some of the worst defences and he’s a goal machine! I know Arsenal aren’t playing that well, but they’re still 5th. I’ve got him and I’m keeping him.

    Thoughts?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Plenty of cheaper forwards outscoring him.
      I'd rather have Lacazette.

      1. Jackie Moon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Would you want to captain Lacazette though? I think Auba will be my captain in at least 3 of the next 4.

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          1 goal in last 5 is hardly captain Auba material. He has the fixtures for sure but will he get the supply? A bit like Kane in price/form and few here have either.

          1. Jackie Moon
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Yeh fair call. Just seems wrong even thinking about selling him with those fixtures, but maybe in being biased because I already have him.

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      So who would go out of Vardy Abraham and Jimmi?

      1. Jackie Moon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I’ve got Vardy, Abraham and Auba. Have thought about getting Jimmi and a premium mid, but see Auba as a better option than Sterling or Salah for the next few (have Mané and KDB).

        1. RED_ARMY
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          1 shot on target in the last four i think

          1. Jackie Moon
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Oh really? Yeh that’s pretty bad.

        2. Kopkloppers
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Fair enough. I have no counter argument.

          1. Jackie Moon
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Who do you prefer out of those premium options? Salah, Sterling, Auba? Or anyone else?

            1. Kopkloppers
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              FPL price points have been pretty accurate this year. I have Mane Vardy and KDB as reliable captain choices. 11 mil in the forwards can make it difficult to offload. Auba a great player.

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Too unreliable for his price.

      1. Jackie Moon
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Still only blanked in 4 games all season. Sterling and Salah have blanked more (counting not playing).

  18. Miniboss

    Hi!

    On wildcard, can you see need for any changes?

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Söyuncy Lundstrom
    Mane KdB Maddison
    Rashford Vardy Abraham

    Button Tomori Douglas Luiz Dendoncker

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Mids too weak. I have the money to double up on Pool defense but then I wonder which defender has to make way.

  19. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Still cant believe people are trusting Sterling for captiency let alone own him despite scoring only twice in last 9 gws.

    And 8 of those 9 were against (BHA nor WAT eve WOL cpl AVL SOT)

    Are you mad,? My brain just cant fathom the thought process. Care to explain ?

    1. Jackie Moon
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      He still seems to playing well, but just not getting the returns. I don’t own him personally, but I’m pretty scared he’s going to start scoring again soon and punish non owners.

    2. Squeakybum99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 8 days ago

      He has been playing well, people might think Vardy against Brighton isn't a banker or Mane against a palace away. Chelsea are playing city, no one trusts Spurs or Arse or United. Law of averages. Hope. I could think of these. Not sure though.

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Look at his stats.
      Watch him play.
      He’s Man City best player by far.
      Chelsea’s defence are weak.
      His stats are proving true for club and country. Unfortunately, hasn’t been in the PL. But returns are around the corner. And the Chelsea game is the best one yet for him.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        *Around the corner 😕 Good one

        Remember the saying by Einstein

        "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results"

        So keep on owning sterling despite him blanking continuously 😉

      Odd imo that a poster with a 7 beside his name posts this, sorry but Sterling at home to a loose enough Chelsea side that will most likely not sit back is def one of the best captaincy picks this GW!
      Have you even watched him play recently, he's City's most dangerous looking attacker by some way!

      2. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yh ive watched him closely in pl and he's been very erratic in his shooting and decision making.

        There are much better mids to own right now with better form and fixtures (mane salah son maddison pulisic willian martial tielemens etc)

        1. jia you jia you
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          agree with your first sentence but he's getting into very dangerous positions and hauls are incoming once he starts clicking again, which will happen 100%

          1. HurriKane
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            Yh he's a class player dont get me wrong but being stubborn in fpl wont get you anywhere

            He's right now very much dependent on other factors like Mendy starting. Not to forget city are basically out of title race meaning Pep will prioritize CL. Hence sterling could be rested in easy pl matches before CL game

            1. HurriKane
              • 7 Years
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Add to that no point in owning 12m player if you are not going to captain him anytime soon

              Already got Vardy and Mane who will be my top 2 captiency choices for next 5-6 gws. (Btw got KDB as city cover who offers better value)

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

                fair enough mate and I might consider selling him in the future but he'll likely be my captain v CHE and he's not a bad choice imo 😉

                1. HurriKane

    6. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think a no. of factors play into it.

      - Scoring high in non-league matches.
      - He is a World Class player, perhaps they feel that this barren form will not continue for too long, surely.
      - passes the eye test in recent games.

  20. Differential (c)
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Have money to upgrade defence, but thinking of just saving.
    Chilwell/Robertson/Doherty the main contendors, in that order.

    Gazzaniga
    TAA Lowton Lundstram
    Mane deBruyne Maddison Djenepo
    Vardy Abraham Jimenez

      That’s a lot in the bank! Surely you can get another premium attacker with that much?

      1. Differential (c)
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Satisfied with my batch of attackers at the moment. I try not to feel pressure to use my money just because I have it.
        Who would you transfer out/in, just out of curiosity?

        1. Jackie Moon
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 8 days ago

          I know it’s not popular here, but I like Auba for the next 4 games, but that would mean taking out Jimi I guess. Adding Chilwell/Pereira to defence for Guilbert or Lowton would be good too. I’ve got Soy and Pereira and been very happy with their returns recently.

    Morning Folks, which option is better going forward?

    A) Robbo and KDB
    B) 4.7 and Salah

    OptionA looks more obvious, but Salah is a great option for captaincy in comparison

    1. Kiwi Don
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      There are so many cheap defenders that B can be strong as well. A offers two players with massive bonus point potential and depends on Salah’s ankle update.

    2. Jackie Moon
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      KDB at his starting price was a set and forget all season for me, unless long term injury. Unless you can have Salah and KDB i would go with A.

  27. Kiwi Don

    I can see by reading the papers there is an international break. Not so much about the football, but the lack of it.
    When are the money people going to realise there is a limit to the level of fitness a player can reach. Clubs pay the wages and I am gobsmacked they have as many breaks as they do.
    Listening to the England manager saying all will fear them after their last 2 wins. How does it get England anywhere having Montenegro, Kosovo and Bulgaria taking up space in a calendar that supporters would hope to watch a decent game.instead of boring crap.
    Something must be done; either reducing the premier league to 18 teams or Seeding the Euro teams so that competitive games can be watched. I hope I am wrong when England play a decent side their defense will be sadly lacking.
