        That bench terrifies me. Could easily haul

          I know 🙁

          Can't even really bench boost as it's a midweek round and there could be rotation

        Maybe Mcgovern to David to not waste the transfer and have another playing GK (if only for a few weeks)? Better option than Pope this week as well?

        Also, I'd start Tammy ..

      Just look at this lovely lot. Still got my wildcard, no idea what I'm going to use it for. Yet to take a hit too this season 🙂

        Pretty poor play not to leave yourself in a position where you need to use your wildcard. I manage to do this every season.

        1. shirtless
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          Last year I used it on Dec 30th for housekeeping. I don't think two wildcards are strictly necessary to be honest.

        Nice team. I would find a replacement for Tammy as he looks to be out still and there are nice options to hold his place for now.

        25%

        10 days, 23 hours ago

        Personally think he'll be on the bench with Bats starting this time. This will be treated as his little rest before the busy period kicks in.

        1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)
          • 4 Years
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          Sounds sensible

      5. toca
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          It does look like he´s not gonna play vs Villa, but I will keep him anyway

      6. theodosios
        • 2 Years
        10 days, 23 hours ago

        Bench Soyuncu or Tomori?

      7. popcoin

        10 days, 23 hours ago

        Thoughts on Lampard's comments on Tammy?

        ‘We will find out more today and tomorrow. He needs to get outside and move a little bit outside over the next two days.’

        The fact that the injury was Wednesday and he still hadn't got running outside until today, worries me as an owner

        1. theodosios
          • 2 Years
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          By this comment I think he will definitely miss next two games

        2. ElliotJHP
          • 7 Years
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          I highly doubt he will play

        3. diesel001
          • 3 Years

          Misses Villa. In with a chance against Everton

        Abraham owners...

        Are you keeping hold or shifting on?
        I still have WC but tempted to move Sterling to Mane for now!

        1. theodosios

          It's too late to sell now...

          • 4 Years
          10 days, 23 hours ago

          No point deciding until we hear the presser imo. Dullard in me might be tempted to bench again but it feels wrong

        3. Bubbles1985
          • 2 Years

          Admittedly I have had him for a while so a lot of cash in him!

      9. Better luck next year

          2. The_Bucc
            • 1 Year
            10 days, 23 hours ago

            What to do with this front 8?

            Sterling(!) - Mane - Maddison - Mount(!) - Dendoncker
            Vardy - Jimenez - Tammy(!)

            Would like to get Alli or Son in. Zaha an option too, Mousset/Ings are nice cheap Tammy replacements.

            2 fts, 0.5m in the bank, thoughts?

          3. Rains of Castamere
            • 4 Years
            10 days, 23 hours ago

            Am I mad for wanting Kane? I have Son already but if FPL has taught me anything in recent years, it's that Harry Kane loves festive fixtures. I know Alli is in form but I don't think I could put the armband on him. Kane represents a real captaincy option, particularly in BGW18 when captains are sparse as he loves London derbies too.

            I also see GW16 and BUR as a potential 26-pointer.

            1. El Lobito 10
              • 2 Years
              10 days, 22 hours ago

              Good luck. Just trolled me once again as my captain. Alli and Son better fpl options

              had him all season, I wouldn't bet against him being top scorer from here till end of season ... but he needs to start

              1. warlock22
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                10 days, 20 hours ago

            Rp

            1 FT 2.4 ITB

            Thoughts on this lot ?

            Pope
            TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
            Sterling Mane Mount Maddison
            Ings Jimenez Vardy

            Button, Rico, Dendoncker, Dunk

            a) Mount to Alli or Pulisic
            b) Sterling to Son
            c) Save and get rid of Sterling and Mount next GW

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              10 days, 23 hours ago

              Think I'd be inclined to save this week and hold Mount and Sterling for one more

          5. lindeg
            • 1 Year
            10 days, 23 hours ago

            odds on scoring:

            mount: 2.8
            zaha: 3.3

            just saying

            1. Hakim Ziyech
                10 days, 23 hours ago

                Odds don't mean sht imo. Just saying

                1. lindeg
                  • 1 Year
                  10 days, 23 hours ago

                  i know people on here like to consider themselves experts, but are you really a bigger expert than those getting paid to make the odds?

                  1. Hakim Ziyech
                      10 days, 23 hours ago

                      I think so 🙂

              • JoeSoap
                • 6 Years
                10 days, 23 hours ago

                Best use of 2FTs?

                Have 0.6 in bank. Keeper an option and maybe Abraham if fit. Like Son but hard to fit him in without removing Mane/KDB.

                Pope
                Robby, Lund, Soyu
                Mane, Maddy, KDB, Mount
                Vardy, Jimmy, Rash
                Gazza, Tomori, Dendo, Rico,

                1. Better luck next year
                    10 days, 23 hours ago

                    Good team. Would switch Pope to Henderson and keep 1FT.

                  • Don Kloppeone
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 2 Years
                    10 days, 23 hours ago

                    Hmm that's not easy as I would say Alli/ Son are better options than KDB atm but Kevin is always going to end up a great long term FPL asset.

                    Really not sure what I would do - maybe just the keeper move this week.

                    1. Better luck next year
                        10 days, 23 hours ago

                        Agree on Son/Alli, but that move could wait to after United away. Save 1FT and you'll manage to get one of the Spurs mids in for next GW.

                        1. JoeSoap
                          • 6 Years
                          10 days, 23 hours ago

                          Was thinking similar myself and hoping Utd/Spurs is low scoring.

                    2. JoeSoap
                      • 6 Years
                      10 days, 23 hours ago

                      Thanks all. Keeper the obvious move for me unless Abraham is declared fit. Could get Son next week but would have to do Rico>Kelly this week and then Mount/Rash>Son/Ings. Would need no price rises/falls for these players though.

                    • 4 Years
                    10 days, 23 hours ago

                    Mount or Cantwell to start?

                    1. Don Kloppeone
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      10 days, 23 hours ago

                      That's tough but because of fixture I would say Mount as I think he starts this match.

                    2. FlytzoBazooka
                      • 1 Year
                      10 days, 23 hours ago

                      Cantwell

                    3. toca
                        10 days, 23 hours ago

                        Cantwell 17 pts last 2 GW. He could easily have had another goal vs Arsenal. He looks fresh and sharp, unlike Mount.

                      • El Lobito 10
                        • 2 Years
                        10 days, 22 hours ago

                        Form over fixtures always. Cantwell

                      Would appreciate you views on this - apologies it's a bit long!

                      Afternoon all

                      After using my FT over the weekend, I am planning to hold on further moves this GW.
                      I'm not usually one to plan moves looking weeks ahead but I was just playing around and have seen I could do these moves over the next 2-3 weeks at a cost of -4 / -8:

                      Pope > Guaita
                      Rico > Aurier
                      Mount > Pulisic
                      Dendo > Zaha/ Grealish

                      This would give me the following team with £2.3m itb and flexibility to bring in MCI and potentially to just bench my LIV assets in GW18 for the blank:

                      2.3itb
                      Guaita, McGovern
                      TAA, Soy, Lunds, Willems, Aurier
                      Mané, Alli, Maddison, Pulisic, Zaha/ Grealish
                      Vardy, Jimi, Ings

                      Keen to get your thoughts. Looking at the moves, they are all upgrades and should pay back any hits within a couple of weeks.

                      Thanks

                        Will leave you with benching problems bar wk18.

                          10 days, 23 hours ago

                          I think based on fixtures it wouldn’t be terrible to pick 2 defenders to bench from those and rotate Ings/ Grealish for starts.

                          I could forget the Rico > Aurier move and leave myself even more itb?

                      Behind the curve(template)?

                      Who else feels like they're behind the curve in terms of, there are loads of players I want to bring in, but only 1FT a week.

                      e.g.
                      Rico > Aurier
                      Mount > Pulisic or Maddison or Zaha

                      Did Barnes (differential that didn't pay off) > Alli this week already.

                        Go for Pulisic

                          I'd like Aurier but wouldn't wanna do Rico to him, already have a benching headache as it is without putting more money into it.

                          Cantwell as the Southampton defense is for laughs

                          I don’t think Pulisic gets rested mid week

                          1. He hasn’t played as many games as others due to now being picked earlier on in the season

                          2. If Tammy is still out I could see him staying up top after lanyards comments

                          3. He’s Chelsea most inform attacker

                          Any thoughts on which option between Mousset and Ings? Mousset opurely because he is cheaper?

                                I've seen plenty of Mousset in last few weeks and think if he's not scoring he'll be assisting. Plus good fixtures.

                                I've got a fairly similar team (I think most on here do in fairness), and one thing I'm considering is Pope to Guaita.

                                I hate transfers for a GK generally but think it may prove quite shrewd over the next 6-8 games.

                                  I have been considering it too, although I think I'd probably opt for Henderson. Maybe next week!

                              Had Son as my Captain for the last three weeks, i feel like i should continue. Thougts?

                                Not keen on those options frankly but one of the city mids

                                No Leicester or Liverpool player then? They are probably the besr captain options. I’d captain Sterling out of those.

                                Mousset Ings Vardy

                                Tempted to bring either Alli or Son in for Perez, but maybe wait for 1 more week since Manu tend not to lose at Old Trafford? Alli is thriving under Mourinho but Son has been the more consistent one? Who‘d you rather get?

                                  I’d get Son but probably after Man U match. Both managers play with defensive tactics in big games, so we might see both teams parking the bus and playing counter attack on Wednesday.

                                Thoughts on this:

                                Pope (Button)

                                Tomori, Soy, Lord (Kelly, Rico)

                                Salah, Sterling, KDB, Mount (Lansbury)

                                3.0m ITB. 1 FT.

                                A) Pope > Hendo/Schmeichel

                                B) Tomori > TAA

                                C) Mount > Alli

                                  Alli outperforming Mount could easily be the summary for Spurs outperforming Chelsea.

                                10 days, 22 hours ago

                                I can afford Mount-Alli, Cantwell-Pulisic, Roberto (I know...) to Martin for the exact funds across the next two gameweeks for a -4, to give me a line-up of:

                                Pope
                                TAA-Soy-Lundy

                                (Martin, Rico, C.Taylor, Connolly)

                                Thoughts? Too much Spurs? Do you think I should keep Cantwell and play 3-4-3 moving forwards, upgrading Connolly to a Rashford-type striker?
