Scout Notes

Who are the best FPL captain candidates for Gameweek 13?

With the final international break of 2019 out of the way, Fantasy Premier League managers must once again make big decisions.

The most important one ahead of Gameweek 13 is, naturally, the captaincy.

In a season characterised by difficult debates for the armband, the latest one has followed suit.

As per usual, the Captain Sensible article is here to help you out by analysing the form of the candidates and the defensive capabilities of their upcoming opponents.

Captain Poll

Captain poll results as of Thursday lunch-time

For the second Gameweek in a row, Jamie Vardy (£9.6m) sits at the top of the captain poll results.

That should be no surprise to Fantasy managers, considering that Leicester’s number one centre-forward is in the form of his life.

Over the last four Gameweeks, Vardy has found the net six times and has not blanked since the Gameweek 8 trip to Liverpool.

He is fast becoming a very reliable option for the captaincy as his ownership (36%) continues to rise. 32.9% of our voters have backed him for the Gameweek 13 captaincy too.

This weekend pits him against a Brighton defence that has kept two clean sheets in their last four at the Amex Stadium, although captain Lewis Dunk (£4.6m) will be missing through suspension.

Adam Webster (£4.4m) is also touch and go to start for the Seagulls.

It looks as if the 14.7% who have voted for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.0m) this weekend are relying on the fixture rather than the player.

Southampton’s 9-0 to defeat at home to Leicester in Gameweek 10 has very much cemented their place amongst the ‘captain against’ category.

However, Aubameyang himself has registered just one attacking return in his last five Premier League matches, scoring against Wolves in Gameweek 11.

Furthermore, Southampton have tended to struggle more in front of their own fans than any way from home recently.

They held Manchester City to just two goals in Gameweek 11 and even managed to earn a 1-1 draw at Wolves in Gameweek 9.

So it will be interesting to see whether they can prove to be frustrating on the road once again when they travel to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

Not far behind Aubameyang in the captain poll standings is Sadio Mané (£12.1m), who has the backing of 12.9% as of Thursday lunch-time.

The Liverpool man remains the top-scoring midfielder heading into Gameweek 13 after finding the net late-on against Manchester City last time out.

No Liverpool player has more attacking returns away from home than Mané this season (four) which arguably makes him the most likely to secure a breakthrough against Crystal Palace.

Furthermore, as things stand, he is much more likely to start at Selhurst Park than Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) who comes into Gameweek 13 as an injury doubt and backed by just 2.6% for the captaincy.

Despite a swathe of sales over the international break, a portion of Fantasy managers are keeping faith in Raheem Sterling (£12.0m).

He may have just one attacking return in his last four league starts at home but Chelsea come to the Etihad Stadium still without a clean sheet away from home this season.

That is enough to convince 10.3% of our voters to back Sterling for the captaincy in Gameweek 13.

Heading up what Joe and David would describe as ‘barrel scrapers’, is Harry Kane (£10.8m) who prepares to face West Ham on Saturday lunch-time.

Just 4.5% of you have decided he is the best captain this weekend but interest in his services has certainly increased somewhat with the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Spurs.

Kane does only have one attacking return in the last five Premier League matches but West Ham’s defensive form has been particularly poor of late.

Kevin de Bruyne (£10.2m), Son Heung-min (£9.6m), Richarlison (£7.9m), Raúl Jiménez (£7.3m), Sergio Aguero (£12.0m), Sébastien Haller (£7.2m), Alexandre Lacazette (£9.3m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.2m) are the only other options selected by more than 1% of voters.

    If already on a -4 and have Salah, Mané and no MCI, best just to keep right? Salah out can’t be worth a hit

    Willems and Rico on bench

    1. JustPark
      • 4 Years

      Keep it that way.

        Thanks mate GL

    2. Mo Salah No Mane

      Keep

      1. Don Kloppeone

        Just pray to the FPL gods that MCI stay quiet!

        1. Freddiebell
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          I see man city scoring a few but I also see Chelsea scoring 1 or 2 goals

          1. Don Kloppeone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Me too so I expect my rank to drop heavily this week but it can’t be worth dropping Salah for a hit

    3. Smell the Lavender
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Yes keep. I went KDB --> Mane before Mane increases in price this transfer window because I want both for the rest of the season. One week out doesn't bother me but I reckon he may be subbed on for some game time ahead of ECL.

  2. HurriKane
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    What do you think is the best strategy to overcome 70 points lead of Rival where both have similar teams?

    Get in more differentials?

    Go maverick in captain choices ?

    Or just play sensibly and wait for chips to come into play where careful planning allows you to get an added advantage?

    (ps: he's never finished below 1m rank in past 3 seasons but having a blinder this season currently ranked 1.7k)

    1. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Im likely free hitting this week to try and make a dent on a similar lead.

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Best would involve sabotaging his team.

      Or just do sensible things and expect sensible result. A sensible decision to go maverick for an example. Or a sensible captain choice.

    3. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      What's your teams?

    4. Nuno
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      You're running a marathon not a sprint, play your own game for now

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yh this maybe the way to go

        Been burnt last couple of gws for trying to be different by.owning likes of CHO and Yarmolenko

    5. Wet Knee Houston
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      The best strategy is to play as if you have no idea how many points and what players he has.

    6. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Ignore him and play the best you can.

      That means picking up essential players, taking calculated risks on some differentials with strong fixtures and playing it safe with captaincy.

      70 points is nothing really. Lots of time yet.

      1. HurriKane
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yh. Im eying up cheeky and sensible differentials like Grealish and PVA for Christmas period while maintaining a strong core of template

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          That's it. There's no crazy secret to FPL. Just do those things, and you'll do fine for the season.

    7. HurriKane
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Cheers all for the responses. You guys have given me hope 😉

      1. JustPark
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        That's what she said. Didn't end well for me.

    8. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Calculated punts and captaincy shouts as well as just playing smart/not panicking, there's a good chance they could miss deadlines and stuff over the festive period. I had a nightmare start to this season and have already got back within 30 of my cash ML leader after being way behind. There's a long way to go.

    9. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      If he gained 70p on you so far of course you can gain more than 70 on him over the rest of the season

      1. Freddiebell
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Is a 128pt lead uncatchable now even though its this early. Me and my rival have near on totally different teams. I'd say mine is more template and his has players like Alonso/ Mailtland niles/ Mendy/ Noble./ Rashford/ Aguero/ Aub/ But no Liverpool players. My team is
        Pope.
        Tomori/ TAA/ Lund/
        Mount/ Mane/ Sterling/ Tielimans/ KDB/
        Abrahams/ Vardy/
        Sub's button / williams/ soy/ Connolly /

    10. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      70 points = less than 3 points a week. You can make up that amount during chip season alone. Don't panic Mr Mainwaring.

  3. fplfansss

    Which one?

    A. James to Tielemans
    B. Zinch to Rico

      Looks OK

    2. Rojo's Modern Life
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      You know it is, since you didn't post your bench or mitb. Pipe down.

  5. rnrd
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Well, I'm going Kun (C)
    I think MCI - che will be a very open game. Aguero records against Chelsea is great and this game is a must win of MCI

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Ballsy, I like it.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Good luck but he's let me down too many times recently.

    3. yakirh
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Great option

  6. Nuno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    WC looking as follows, would you do anything differently?

    Gazzaniga
    TAA Robertson Lundstram
    Mane Martial Pulisic Tielemans
    Kane Vardy Abraham

    Martin - Janmaat - Rico - Hayden

    1. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 23 days ago

      If I were using my WC, I'd go with Jimenez as my 3rd striker and would upgrade Martial to KDB.

      1. Nuno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I had Jimenez and KDB pre-wildcard. I know the risks but I'm opting to get move away from them.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks fine, I'm waiting to see how Kane does. Certainly looking at bringing him in over Xmas.

    3. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bold, I like it

    4. Mo Salah No Mane
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks solid
      Wouldn't change anything

    5. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Looks good honestly. Just be wary of no City, as Matty said.

    6. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Nice team in fact. Having no city this week may hurt? Gtg though after this week.

  7. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Mount > Richarlison done. Rich cap. What could go wrong?

    1. The_Fish
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      He's due a red card.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      A lot 😛

      I capped Richarlison vs FUL last season. Didn't work out.

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Yep. He's a let down.

    3. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I wouldn't pin the cap armband on him personally

      1. HAMMERTIME107
        • 1 Year

        or take a -8?

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      You might have non-playing gk this week(or having non-playing gks actually).
      Interested to know the story behind that backline and Snodgrass.

    3. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Must be other options?

    3. Freddiebell

      Lund of course

  11. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Hey you lot 🙂 bit concerned about Nuno's comments re Jimenez (see Scouts twitter feed). To get another differential this week, would you do Mount to Son (FT)?

    Had originally planned to roll 1FT 3.5m ITB, and likely do Kelly to Robbo but Son perhaps an enticing option to replace Mount (who I bought at 6.1 - is he still good value, or move on?)? Early game against a poor WHU team, trying to impress Mou?

    Or would you still just roll the FT? Much appreciated!

    Pope // McGovern
    TAA - Soyuncu - Lundstram // Rico Kelly
    Mane - KDB - Maddison - Mount // Dendoncker
    Vardy(c) - Abraham - Jimenez

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I think Jimenez may play. Wait on Son, if I was upgrading Mount, I would do it next week to Pulisic.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Hope he does...

        Alright fair. Yeah Pulisic killing it atm, just the fact he's more of a rotation threat for over 1m more than what I paid for Mount is putting me off....

        Wait on Son why?

        1. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Prefer to see evidence of Son and Spurs form before buying.

    2. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I want to see how Jose use Son. He's not dissimilar to Martial and feel like he might be the one to suffer under Jose, can see him preferring Lamela's work rate. I did Mount to Martial before the international break and happy with it but you might want to roll with this team.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Lamela out injured.

        1. soup natsi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Is he still out? Was reported as minor a few weeks ago. Have a look at Son's internationals too, seen something about he's out for a couple of games in December.

      2. JustPark
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Son work rate isn't that bad. In fact, would rate him better than Lamela. He's direct, covered a lot of distance iirc compared to his teammates. Underrated player in PL.

        1. soup natsi
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Lamela posts better defensive stats, tackles interceptions recoveries etc. I'd say Son's the overall better player, but I also think Martial is very good and Jose didn't rate him that much.

    3. Link
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I looked at Son too and can see the appeal this week - especially against West Ham. Not convinced Mount is worth ditching yet - and a move to Pulisic may be more beneficial rather than the pricier Son.

      There's a long list of exciting wingers who became more defensive workhorses under Mourinho so maybe worth waiting and seeing.

      Personally, think Jimenez will play - but if he doesn't, Rico off the bench (against a Jimenez-less Wolves) isn't too bad.

      I'd save and have 2FT's and lots of options to play with next week

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Cheers pal, probably the safe thing to do!

  12. Nightf0x

    Which?

    A) wilson mount -4 to laca djenepo
    Gw14 lowton to lovren/5.5 def.
    Gw15 son dendonker -4 to madison puli

    B) wilson mount -4 to ings richar(c)
    Gw14 richar to puli
    Gw15 son lowton -4 to robo madison

    C) wilson to ings

    Anyone thinking Chelsea may cause an upset this weekend?

    1. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Always a chance

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Pulisic no-show?

    3. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      They did last season against City!

      I hope they do tbh. Kdb x1 and Tammy x2 would do me fine for a 2-1 chelsea win!

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Losing 6-0 was upsetting for Chelsea fans for sure

        1. Top Lad Dakes.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Yeah and they also beat them 2-0 did they not? That's obviously the game I was referring to.

    4. Freddiebell
      • 3 Years

      Could happen. Me personally knowing Chelsea like to attack and city eager to get back on track I see city winning 5-2 ....
      Now I've said that it will Be 0-0 but will be shocked if it is.

    I want to WC, but have Digne and McGinn that needs to stay one more week, Heaton too if he's fit.

    Or just take a hit for Vardy and Maddy/Puli in for Sterling and Connolly and carry on?

    Heaton
    Digne, Lund, Soy, Tom, Rico
    Salah, Sterling, KdB, Martial, McGinn
    Jimmy, Tammy, Connolly

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Take a hit. I did.

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I'd take that hit. Pulisic assuming he's fit, despite this week's fixture

    3. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      That's not bad. Start Rico 1st on bench, Tomori and Connolly last.

    4. soup natsi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Cheers lads, hits are in order

  15. Link
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Desperately wanted to save this week in order to have 2FT's for the mini fixture swings next week.

    A. Save. Tark off the bench if Salah no shows
    B. Salah > Mane/Son?

    Heaton
    TAA - Soy - Lund - Rico
    Sterling - Salah - KDB - Mount
    Vardy - Abraham

    Tark, Saka, Connolly

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Take a risk, Salah may play.

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I'd roll the FT my friend.

      Help above?

    Thinking of a one week punt on Iwobi vs leaky Norwich...thoughts?

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      No.

    2. Hands Guber
      • 4 Years

      No, cowboy

  17. mrodgers91

    2.1 ITB 0 FT anything worth a hit
    Pope
    Pereira taa lundstram jaanmat
    Mane kdb maddison
    Tammy vardy jimi
    4.0 rico mount cantwell

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      nope roll it. would be tempted to play mount over jaanmat though, or at least mount first sub

    2. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Would start Mount over Janmaat.

  18. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    What differentials are you eyeing up currently?

    Grealish is up there for me when he's back fit. Son too has pretty low ownershp still.

    1. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Kane

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Fair. I kinda always tend to gravitate more towards Son as when Spurs get going they often score similar but Son is cheaper?

        What's your team looking like nowadays?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Yeah, just worried about Son game time this week..still mulling over him/Kane/Bobby F

          Heaton
          TAA Soy Lundy
          'Sterling Mane KdB Mount
          Vardy Tammy Maupay

          2 Ft's

          Maupay has to go

          1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Happy with the midfield this week?
            I have the same but with 1.3 cash and 2 FTs burning a hole I'm tempted by Mount -> Maddison

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Im thinking Sterling/Maupay->Maddi/Kane for free

              Would love Son.

              1. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Nice moves. Could nearly stick (C) on Kane as well.

                Son is v tempting, I'm thinking Maddison in for Mount now and then Raz->Son and use the cash to get Robertson for free next week.

          2. Top Lad Dakes.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Looking good. Agree re Maupay - was that a short term punt for Norwich? Handy having 2FT though - how much ITB?

            Our teams are similar ish, my Jimenez Maddison Pope 1FT and probably more (3.5m) ITB to your Maupay Sterling Heaton, so fingers crossed for us.

            Keeping faith in Sterling still?

            1. Christina.
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Yeah, Norwich punt gone bad. I only have 0.5m so money tight. Wish I could get Son & Bobby F but to expensive.

          3. Bojam
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            I’ve had Bobby for 5 or 6 weeks now and he hasn’t delivered anything. Think he’s been unlucky - plenty of chances and a goal ruled out by a marginal VAR decision) - and his xG suggests that he’s underperforming. But not massively.

            Think I’m shipping him out for Kane this week. Kane higher ceiling, on pens, new manager bounce. Historically does very well over xmas (though so does Firmino).

            Obviously Firmino will go on a run as soon as he leaves my team lol.

          4. Freddiebell
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Would you play Tomori, soy or Williams. I have TAA & Lord already starting.

    2. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Grealish later in the season over Christmas. Son if he starts to motor.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        May be smart on Son I suppose. One of those players that once he starts going he goes for a stretch, so maybe worth missing the first game/haul to make sure Spurs play well under Mou? That your thinking behind saying 'wait on son'?

        1. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Yep

    3. JustPark
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Spurs attackers.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        This, lets see how they setup this weekend.

        1. JustPark
          • 4 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          Son/Alli audition for me.

    4. manu4life99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Gut tells me Kane could be a great differential and spurs in general depending on how they look

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Could do well, or just media hype stuffing Spurs and Mourinho down our throats.

    5. Dr. Mantis Toboggan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      Aside from those already mentioned, double SHU defence and double Liverpool attack. Also maybe some Palace

  19. manu4life99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Used FT on Salah > Mane.

    G2G?

    Heaton

    Afternoon guys, thoughts, rolling FT, only dilemma play Mount or four at the back but who to bench?

    Pope
    Lundstram, Trent, Virgil,
    Mane, KDB, Martial, Maddy, Mount
    C Vardy, Tammy

    Button, Soy, Mousett, Rico

    1 FT

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Play Soy, drop Mount

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Keeping swapping the pair round, cannot bench Pool or Sir J?

  24. soup natsi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Ok, now the new question is Pulisic or Maddison?
    Have both Vardy and Abraham.

    1. The Big Fella
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 23 days ago

      I am going for Maddison. On set pieces and less likely to be rotated as they don't really have the depth plus no CL etc.

      1. g40steve
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Maddison for me.

  25. Negan
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Pope
    TAA- Soy- Lundstram
    Salah- Mount- KDB- Maddison
    Vardy(C)- Jimenez- Abraham

    Bench: McGovern- Rico- Nakamba- Tomori

    No FTs, 2.1 ITB... G2G ?

  26. Rupert The Horse

    Grew up in west London.
    Just listening to a rapper called Dave. His track question time is utterly brilliant.

  27. The Big Fella

    Anybody in the know have any leaks about Salah?

  28. teneighty
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 23 days ago

    Just pushed the button on Sterling + Maupay -> Kane (C) + Tielemans.

    Feels good man.

    Thoughts on :
    A: Jiminez and Martial for Salah and Greenwood(-4)
    B: Son and Jiminez for Salah and greenwood (-4)
    C: None, keep salah

    Got mané
    Thanks
