    Zaha hits form when the transfer window approaches. Hmm.

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years

          Hoping for drop here since got rid last week. Let's see but it is very 50-50.

    C Save

    Pope

        All good moves btw.

    2. KUNingas

      Save

  5. The Overthinker - I blame R…
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Who would you start out of
    A) Abraham
    B) James

    1. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      I would wait until I knew more about Abraham's injury situation (i.e. tomorrow) before deciding. Abraham is better than James, but not if Abraham isn't in the matchday squad.

  6. Oh Maddison

    Bench one:
    1. Tammy
    2. Soy

      Neither. Keep Martial. Hold the transfer.

      Tottenham could be a goal fest.

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        United don't look like they'll score loads of goals to me....

  8. Niho992

    Teams that Man City have been drawn to face in the domestic cups since 2018 (so excluding finals): Oxford, Fulham, Leicester, Burton, Rotherham, Burnley, Newport, Swansea, Brighton, Preston, Southampton, Oxford and Port Vale.

    Absolutely astonishing.

  9. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Lundstram still going up in price. Incredible.

  10. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Pulisic or Maddison?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Pulisic

  11. Rinseboy
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Hold FT this week or any ideas? Am a bit stuck!

    Pope
    TAA Robbo Soy Lunds
    Maddison Son Mane Pullisic
    Vardy Jimi
    Button Tanmy Cantwell Rico
    0.7 ITB

    1. ljuta zena
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      hold

  12. ADH
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Have Pope and Heaton, so looking to replace Heaton given the fixture swing for both. Best replacement for Heaton?

    A) Henderson (already have Lunds and Baldock)
    B) Guita
    C) Other
    D) Keep them both

    1. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 15 days ago

      I have both and am taking the different approach of transferring out Pope as Heaton rotates well with McCarthy and Henderson. McCarthy is cheaper but I’ll be doubling up on the Utd defence! Do like Guaita as well but too expensive alongside Heaton/Pope.

      1. ADH
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah very fair. Hadn't considered McCarthy. If I go that route I could also afford to go Maddo up to Alli.

  13. zotter
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Bench one of

    Trent. Vvd. Soy. Lund
    Kdb. Mane. Zaha. Madison
    Vardy. Jiminez. Abraham

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Abraham due to threat of minutes

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Soyuncu or Abraham if it looks like he won't start.

  14. Uns95
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Any changes? 1 FT 0 ITB

    Henderson
    TAA Robertson Soyuncu Lundstram
    KDB Mane Pulisic Tielemans
    Jimenez Vardy (c)

    McGovern Abraham Mendy Elneny

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Benching Abraham because of cameo risk ?

      1. Uns95
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        Yepp, unless anything is revealed tomorrow.

        Otherwise, think my only option is to bench one of Soy or Tielemans for Abraham?

        1. zotter
          • 10 Years
          7 months, 15 days ago

          I have same issue see above

          1. Uns95
            • 2 Years
            7 months, 15 days ago

            Think Soy or Abraham in your case. Unless Lampard confirms Abraham fit i don't think worth risking a cameo.

            1. zotter
              • 10 Years
              7 months, 15 days ago

              True. Especially given soy a very viable alternative

  15. Seamy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Is it worth the -4 to get Alli in for Tielemans or just wait until the weekend to do it?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Wait definitely

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      I'd wait until the weekend

  16. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Pope
    TAA - Lundy - Soy
    Mane - Pulisic - Tielemans - Mount
    Kane - Vardy - Jimenez

    (4.0 Tomori Cantwell Rico)
    1ft & 3.3m

    Worth using a transfer to sell Pope?

    Thinking of saving and doing Mount & Tomori to Aurier & Alli for the weekend fixtures.

    Thoughts?

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      I’d probably just save it. There’s not that much to be gained from the GK transfer.
      Use it some week you have 2 FT and no pressing issues

      1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        Yup I agree think selling Tomori for Aurier could be a more lucrative transfer next week.

        1. Seamy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 15 days ago

          Yeah I’ve got my eye on Aurier in a few weeks time too for one of my Liverpool defenders

  17. unitednations
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Best combo till gw19

    A: Pulisic + Alli
    B: Maddison + Alli
    C: Son + Grealish
    D: Alli + Zaha

    1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      A

    2. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      A, tough one though

    3. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      A or D

    4. No MO limits
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      What about Son and Zaha

  18. KUNingas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Good evening. 2FTs and 0.3 ITB

    A) Tomori -> Kelly (bank some money)
    B) Martial -> Pulisic

    Option A would enable to do Martial + Connolly -> Cantwell + Abraham next week.

    Ryan
    TAA, Soyuncu, Lund
    Mane, KDB, Son, Maddison, Martial
    Vardy, Jimenez

    Button, Tomori, Rico, Connolly

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      A

    2. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      A is good move if you want to free up some cash.

      1. KUNingas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        Yeah, probably will give Martial one last chance

    **** 2018 Eliteserien Season End ****

    As some of you will know, the Eliteserien came to a close yesterday.

    The Norwegian top tier runs for 8 months, from April to November approx, with a free FPL game available from the Premier League FPL people.

    I had organised a rookies league, “Fjord Focus” to take advantage of this.

    I appreciate there are some serious players on the FFS community forum, but I’m not on there much and had organised the league here, hence this post.

    This was ideal for those of us who suffer from Premier League/FPL withdrawal over the summer months!

    Fjord Focus league was won by “Maneball” (Nick) with an impressive first season overall rank of 546 out of 55,000 players approx.

    Congrats Nick, your prize of a candlelit dinner for 2 with John Lundstram is being organised...

    Runner up was “Adams Vikings” with an OR of 1076 - well done Adam.

    Thanks to those who took part and we can possibly run something similar again next spring when it returns.

    If you have an FPL itch to scratch over the summer, I can really recommend the game.

    Its the same format of what we’re used to, and requires very little commitment in terms of time (if you so wish) just to keep your team reasonably ticking along (e.g. 10-15 mins per week)

    As for the football (!) Molde were crowned champions, with a convincing 68 point total.

    Bodo / Glimt claimed runners up spot with 58 points (who themselves had only returned to play in the Eliteserien in 2018 following promotion)

    Rosenborg, last seasons champions, were a place further back in 3rd on 52 points.

    Eliteserien FPL Fun (?!) Facts:

    Then top scoring defender (Christophe Psyche) was a 4.0m starter

    A 4.5m keeper (Marcus Sandberg) was the games 4th highest overall points scorer

    I discovered that “Skade i håndledd - Ute resten av sesongen” means “ wrist injury - out for the rest of the season”

    Peace and out

    I turn on the fa cup draw all excited, missed the first few, and out comes Chelsea at home. I'm like well surely not us again. 1/58 chance or whatever it was and bam yep, 'will play Forest at home.' Again, exact same draw as last year. Run over before it's even begun. Suppose at least we can goad lampard but still.

    Mane KDB Alli Pulisic Mount
    Vardy Abraham Connolly

    1 FT, 0 itb. Not sure what to do after the Abraham update, what do you think?

    A) Save FT
    B) Abraham -> Mousset
    C) Other

    1. Seamy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Save. Mousset leaves you very bare up front

    2. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Save

  23. Zenith UK

    Question, if you're bringing in a "big" (8.0M+?) player, why would you bring him in and not captain him? Please don't give me the typical "because Vardy is set and forget" etc. You clearly think the player you're bringing in is going to do something hence the transfer. So I'm just curious why you don't trust them enough to score enough to be captained?

    The reason I ask is this week I learned the hard way. I, unfortunately, was one of those that chased points by putting the captaincy responsibilities on Mane, why I didn't stick with my tried and tested Vardy I don't know. To make matters worse I always knew I was bringing in Alli after the WHUvTOT game and when I brought him in I left the armband on him for 24 hours before picking Mane.

    Result? Mane (2) and Alli (15). Subsequently meant I finished the week with 87 instead of 100.

    1. Maddamotha
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      87 very bad score indeed

      1. Zenith UK

        Not sure the point of this comment?

    2. Pu-li-sick (sic)

      Because Vardy is set and forget etc

      1. Zenith UK

          • 2 Years

          Bad post tbh. 87 points? Cry us a river.

          1. Zenith UK
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            7 months, 15 days ago

            I'm showing the difference in point swing. It's not about my points, I got outscored by plenty. I've been on the website for three years, I'm not particularly one to brag about my scores (unless I'm having specific banter with another user)

            1. Pu-li-sick (sic)
              • 2 Years
              7 months, 15 days ago

              Not one to brag about scores until this week eh 😉

    3. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      You thought Mane would outscore Vardy & Alli.

      Vardy & Alli of course still able to score well but you must have favoured Mane.

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        I only didn't captain Alli because I thought I'd be pushing my luck and "cursing" it. The odds of me guessing the right week to bring him in and captain him felt far-fetched. I also thought Liverpool would romp BHA. I figured even an assist or a single goal would keep me happy with Mane but alas...

        Do you ever bring in premium players but then not captain them?

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      It’s one of the more intricate “I scored X” brag posts, i’ll give you that 🙂

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        7 months, 15 days ago

        Max! I'm hurt! Wasn't the angle I was going for, generally want to know why we as FF players will bring in a big player but few then follow on the inward transfer with the armband?

    5. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      100 would have been nice.
      Alli aint Premium.
      The bringin in makes a player more beautiful to your eyes. Taking the armband away affer initially being blinded by his shiny white new shirt was the right decision

  24. aapoman
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 15 days ago

    1. Start Coady or Mount?
    2. Keep or sell Mount?
    3. If sell, who would be the best max 6.5 replacement?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      1. Mount
      2. Keep givrn you can’t get Zaha
      3. Probably McGinn or perez

  25. Abra Dubravka
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 15 days ago

    Pope to Henderson even though I also have Lund?

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      Think so.

    2. KUNingas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 15 days ago

      I didnt do Ryan -> Henderson just because I already have Lund and dont want to double up

  26. Mooster
    • 3 Years

    Willems nailed?

    NEW fixtures looks as good as Palace’s, willems is 1 mill cheaper than Pva and both have scored 50 points so far

      Very nailed

      I’d much rather PVA even for the extra 1 mil.

        Willems playing as A winger, got 2 goals and 2 assists so far, and NEW is improving
