FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The draws for the fifth round of the FFS Members Cup and the sixth round of the FFS Cup have taken place following the completion of Gameweek 19.

As planned, we skipped Gameweek 20 due to the swift turnaround between the two sets of fixtures.

We’re down to the final 32 Fantasy managers in both tournaments after the Boxing Day games.

Our highest-ranked manager in round five (more of whom below) made it through to the round of 32.

Teddy Brewski, still chasing a cup double, beat Jeanz 70-39 in Gameweek 19 and will next face robharr.

Our only all-top 10k clash in Gameweek 20 sees beetlejuice take on Mataatti, who saw off another manager inside the top 10,000, Bury94, in round five.

Two of our three remaining site users who lie outside the top 150k, Coquelino and A Team Has No Name, meet each other in round six.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

The scores from the fourth round of the 2019/20 FFS Members Cup are available by clicking here.

The fifth round draw in full can be accessed here.

Our highest-ranked entrant left in either competition is now up to a remarkable 14th in the world.

frankiem, who first entered the top 1k four months ago, saw off sandgrounder 66-64 in Gameweek 19 and will meet Emm7980 in the fifth round.

ActorJeff, who has an overall rank of 630th, also progressed and will next play OlivierGiroudsHair.

A further seven managers in the round-of-32 draw are also in the top 10k after Gameweek 20.

One of those, the aforementioned TeddyBrewski, will face moderator TorresMagic in the first Gameweek of 2020.

    Alli/Grealish/Abraham to Kdb/Traore/Dcl?

    Not having kdb has killed my rank, need to stop it

    1. dshv

      Yes mate yesterday did sterling to kdb cant play without kdb ... like you said kill my rank everytime..

    2. The Legend Squad

      Good moves. -8 or -4?

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        -8.

        Can do Alli to kdb for -4, but will only get Ayew or Mousset for Abraham then

        1. The Legend Squad
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          KDB will pay that back on his own. Traore should outscore Grealish. Think it’s worth even a -8

  7. Kopkloppers
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    I am not saying this week necessarily but an early WC, probably next week when the fixture pile up settles a little. Forget about whether the WC is right but comment on the side which is slightly differential. It would cost 20 points to get to this side:
    Ryan/ Fab
    TAA/Robbo/Rico/Lund/Kelly
    Salah/Martial/Traore/KDB/Maddi
    DCL/Jimmi/Ings
    2.3 ITB for emergency moves due to cheap forwards.
    Feel free to cut me to shreds guys.

    1. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      You’re going to want Vardy. 4 very green fixtures in a row. With his ownership near 100% in the top 10k you’ll be left behind if not

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I expected the Vardy comment.
        If I had stuck to my original plan at the start of the season and captained KDB set and forget, I would have been no worse off ignoring Vardy. It is a risk though.

    2. Aftermath
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      What's the point of getting this side? You're essentially betting against Vardy not to score and your cheap forwards to continuously deliver

      Don't make it differential for the sake of it, do it only if you think the side is a genuine improvement

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        You make a good point but as I mention above I would have been no worse off C KDB and points per mil with those forwards are off the charts accepting DCL is a punt. See my Grav. It will be the first time since GW4 I have an Everton asset!!

    3. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I like it a lot.
      Just too many forwards around budget price for me. Makes it inflexible. Imo
      Benching headache as well.
      I’d have one of Ings or DCL.

      RE Calvert Lewin. He looks really confident now doesn’t he. Ancelotti saying all the right things to boost his confidence. Hoping his run continues.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        DCL is a punt for me and, as you say, maybe one of DCL/Ings. My other thought was Ings to Vardy and moving out Martial to a a 7 mil Mid

        1. The 12th Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Yep that sounds a good idea. You’ll probably be moving Martial on anyway.

      2. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Maddi could go too

    4. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Vardy will cut you to ribbons. If you’re dead set on going without I would upgrade Rico or Kelly to a Leicester defender.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        It seems to be the major discussion. I do have 2.3 ITB and could downgrade Martial to afford Vardy. A major punt I agree.

    5. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Salah over mane?

      Vardy?

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Salah/Mane? Coin toss IMO
        Vardy= Read above but point taken

    6. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      If wildcarding, you need to do something sufficiently mental that it differentiates you from the field

      But not so mental that it sabotages your season

      The move that contains just the right amount of mental is...

      Treble Liverpool defence, Vardy perma cap

      Salah & Mane will likely just continue going tit for tat all season and end up with only 10-20 points between them & having both is so restrictive on budget

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        KDB could and has proven just as good as perma cap.
        I think DCL Ings Maupay and Jimmi all capable of 90% of Vardy points going forward.
        A differential in itself to have Ings Jimmi DCL as forwards and save 6 mil for mids that are not performing per mil quite as well. Mane KDB Martial Maddi and Traore allows a good spread of teams and double Pool back line. The 2.3 mil is cover if I cock up.
        By the way Max, Mount has proven to be not quite as good as expected! (smile)

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          A Brendan Rodgers forward in a top 4 team is an absolutely frightening FPL prospect...

          Suarez was the last one & he got 31G 17A in 33 apps... we kept expecting his points to dry up but they just didn't

          With Vady on 17G 5A after 19 games I see him being on 30G 10A by GW38 easily enough

          Possibly 35G

          But KDB is smashing it - which is kind of why we may all need to take a step back & say is there any need for one 12.5 forward (let alone two!) when they can't outscore a 9.5 mid or a 9.0 striker

  8. The Legend Squad

    What should be my priority?

    1) Tomori to Chilwell
    2) Grealish to fodder, to allow me to afford Alli next week
    3) Gazza to Ryan

    Gazza
    TAA Rico Tomori Kelly Lund

    Rashford + Grealish > Martial + Jimenez worth a -4?

    Gameweek 20 Rough with the Smooth

    How did your GW go? Which of your players were benched? Did you get any injuries? How did your bench perform? Did your captain return?

    Maybe your captain was a highly owned forward who didn't play and you got a big score off your bench.. 😉

    Feel free to post your tales of joy and woe from Gameweek 20 here:

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Smooth - capped KDB

      Rough - rage transfer Tammy to Jimmy -4 cost me 10 points

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Super rough!

      Salah(c), 10 players played, 1 point off bench, 44 points in total and out of LMS. Gutted

    3. ONGO GABLOGIAN
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Rough.

      Aurier, Maddison and Jimenez starting. Chilwell, Lund and Greenwood meant Vardy started for a blank.

      Salah captain second week in a row 🙂

    4. GHB
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Smooth

      Two free transfers

      Kelly & Grealish out (3 points combined)

      TAA and Mooy in ( 19 points combined)

      Had a nightmare week but without this would of been worse!

    5. The Legend Squad
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Rough - 7 points total from 6 players

      Smooth - capped KDB and my Martial for Alli transfer worked

    6. QuintonFortune25
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Smooth - decided on Foster on a WC over the popular Ramsdale. Took a slight risk on Martial which came through and double Liverpool defence returns which looks set to be the next 'template' moves.

      Rough - Went Salah over Mane due to the early Salah rest against Leicester. Captain Salah fail.

    7. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Very rough: I had 6 players rested, Aurier who trolled me again! and had 2 points on the bench that were set for good bench cover. Today I hate this game.

    8. Amey

      Rough : triple Leicester rested

    10. Daddymac
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Smooth last min goal for captain Rashford, Mane TAA @ KDB also scoring big.

      Rough 95th booking for Grealish costing me victory in my heads up mini league had to settle for a draw.

    11. Trossard or not Trossard
        1 month, 27 days ago

        69 points (65 with -4). Keita in was a mistake but TAA paid off. Cap Sadio saved me once again.

      • GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years

        9 men 35 points out of LMS 6m game rank.

        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Smooth, 67 after a hit was good. KDB playing as CM getting 14 points was nice, Dunk 8 pointer was a good start to the week, Ings again, Martial who i never thought i would own did well, Gomez 8, and i did not need my bench-)

        Rough; Salah cap again, not so frustrating as it were against Leicester but when i saw that wolves line up i was hoping for more. No point in doing this anymore, permacap Vardy or Ings-)

      • Bird Raymond
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Some plonker in one of my mini-leagues forgot to take the captaincy off a failed Lundstram punt from last week. Lundstram no show meant KDB vice-captain points!

      • DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Pretty rough this week with my transfers. Brought in Salah to captain (for Sterling), taking it off my last week pick of KDB. Also, took out the "injured" Dele Alli and brought in Moura for a -4.

      • Oddjobleff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Nice week for a change.
        79(-4). 10 played KDB captain, DCL, Mane, Dunk, TAA all returned.
        Aurier og a bit of a blemish. 240k rise to 660k.

      • shirtless
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Rough; Vardy & Lundstram no-shows. Jimenez benched. Salah(c) fail, first week back in the team after switching for Mane whilst he was carrying that ankle for the two weeks before the blank when Salah went on to haul and Mane went quiet!

        Smooth; Trent & Robertson shut-outs, Ryan too. KdB haul.

        54 points for the GW. Despite three captain fails over Xmas I've edged up from 23k to 15k.

      • FPL_Sponge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Rough - had 2FTs and no pressing issues/plan, so did a sideways swap from Mane to Salah (captain was always on Liverpool player) so doubled my overall rank as a result (20k to 40k so still can’t complain at season overall!)

      • Yav
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Smooth.

        If this doesn't make the roughs on the scoutcast I'll be shocked. https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/444287/event/20

      • Bury94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Smooth - was worried going into Sunday but Mane, TAA KDB(C) saved the week, plus getting Abraham off the bench was nice. 67 points and up to 3k, 10 green arrows in a row!

        Rough - Several benched players but that was the same for everyone I guess. Few 1 pointers in there

        Salah (VC), Sterling, Aurier, Jimenez, Grealish, Zaha, Pope, Hayden(b3), Kelly(b2) blanks. Only people to return were Tammy and Robertson. Gameweek rank of 7.1 million makes it my worst ever gameweek.

        Smooth : Martial/Rash/KDB and double pool defence again saved me.
        Rough : Again a disaster transfer. Took out Tammy/Tielemans and went Salah(C)/Greenwood. Had a plan to do Maupay instead of Greenwood but had to do another hit (Pulisic to Traore was that plan) But ditched that last second. Not a big point swing but would have been a great transfer coming this week.

        Roughish
        52pts after the hit for a small red, Grealish only getting 1 point off my bench for Vardy + Zaha and Sterling being useless again didn't help

        Gw 19 and 20 tale of woe - transferred out Alexander-Arnold (32 points in two games, yes, stupid I know, but I looked at the fixtures and thought they would concede every game for the next five or six) and brought in Otamendi (0 points over the two games). Merde.

      Maupay or DCL ?

      Who do you prefer more and why?! (both 5.8m)

      1. faux_C
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I went Maupay 2 weeks ago but I would go DCL now - he seems to be a lot more central to Ancelotti's plan than I thought he would be, and watching Maupay against Bournemouth on Saturday he quite bad.

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Was he that bad. Got an assist too?. He's still in good form with 4 attacking returns in last 5 starts

          1. OldBenKenobi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            He’s also just a central to how Brighton are playing currently. Taking a lot of shots in general

      2. OldBenKenobi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I went Maupay due to fixtures but both are decent choices at that price range

        1. HurriKane
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Would you prefer DCL if you were to get one for next gw and onwards?

          1. OldBenKenobi
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            possibly but I’d wait a GW. If I’ve no other pressing matters I might do the switch. In your case I’d prob just get DCL over Maupay but like I said the next fixture for both isn’t the best...

      3. Sagnik Sadhukhan
          1 month, 27 days ago

          DCL all the way. Looks like he is central to Carlo's plans now and plays for a much attacking Everton side. Maupay always seems to pass the eye test but as Az pointed out somewhere he is not an fpl option. Brings other players into the game rather than scoring goals

        • bench boost for every gamew…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          i bought Maupay, and with the knowledge that he is somewhat wasteful, he is no Ings in that matter but i do like the way Brighton play as it feels like they can score vs anyone, which means i feel less inclined to bench just because the fixture looks bad. He takes pens, that´s nice for a 5.8 striker in a team that attacks.

          DCL is a better striker in all departments and a better finisher, so this was close, but he is not on pens (as far as we know) and i like the brighton fixtures. Everton does look better and might be changing if Everton improves.

        Those with the Salah/Mane/TAA triple up already... what's the plan?

        I *think* I'm happy to stick but the Mane/Robertson/TAA triple-up does appeal. Releases a lot of funds and also avoids the captaincy headache.

        However, Salah's and Mane's hauls are unpredictable so, at least by owning both, you're covering both bases.

          I keep screwing up with these 3. Took out Trent to get Salah, lost 24 points, captained Salah for sweet FA, Mane is the one in form.

          So... conclusion ? Own all 3 till the end of the season and captain KDB every week !

          1. Le Bluff
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Exactly my moves! Took our TAA. Brought him straight back in along with Salah (and captained Salah). Only to see Mane and KDB both haul!

            1. kawaiii
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              I hear you Le Buff. Perhaps we have been playing too long and overthink it ?

              At the time, it seemed the right decision didn’t it ? Given TAA had not been hauling. Salah was on form. Kept Mane.
              It cost about 50 points for me, because I raged TAA back in this week, took out Rashford and Tammy for Ings and Raul.

              From now on. Minimal hits and keep the talisman.

              KDB is the way to go to avoid frustration.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          I think Salah and Mane upsets the balance to much

          1. Le Bluff
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I agree to an extent. Makes it very difficult to get the likes of Martial/Alli without getting rid of Abraham etc.

            1. kawaiii
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              But, I think Grealish is the bargain here to allow for the Pool triple up. His value is better than for Martial/ Ali.

        4. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          i have Gomez instead and my plan is to get VVD as i also want a defender around 5.5, Chilwell or Sidibe` as i´m so tired of having either boring picks like Kelly who only cs potential but that was screwed when all the injuries kept coming and Aurier who plays OOP but actually worse than when he is playing in a back four, he never gets the ball from his team-mates, and Spurs concedes in every game. I´m saving a ft now to get Aurier to Sidibe, and then i will probably have to downgrade Martial or Grealish to get Fabianski and VVD. That decision will be detrmined by Villa´s performances-)

          Exactly the same as mine. On paper looks good but I keep dropping like a stone.

          United assets, and ings have punished but it seems this lineup keeps dodging points for me.

          Also have no idea what move to make. Ugh

        TAA 7.2, Soyuncu 4.8, Lund 4.6, Kelly 4.2, Reid 3.9
        Salah 12.2, KDB 10, Sterling 11.8, Alli 8.6, Grealish 6.3
        Vardy 9.8, Jiminez 7.3, Greenwood 4.3
        0.1 in the bank

        I'm looking to move Sterling on for Mane this week but I am 0.4 short. Luckily I have a second free transfer but I am struggling to see where I can extract the 0.4 from in my team. I've included the selling values of all my players.

        The only move I can see is Grealish to Traore, but I have been quite impressed with Grealish and he is value in my eyes, so if anyone could see an easier route to that 0.4 I'd love to hear your suggestions

        1. Lord of Ings
          • 4 Years

          Lundstram to Kiko possibly

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Interesting, was thinking Grealish > traore which will leave enough in the bank to upgrade Reid to Feminia the week after

        2. GAMBIT
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Alli > Maddison/Martial?

          1. Warbling Wendy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I enjoyed owning Maddison before the city and pool games, but I always feel he is quite limited in terms of his points ceiling. Martial comes with his obvious caveats. So overall I prefer Alli, but a cool 1m saving is tempting.

            1. GAMBIT
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              Then you simply gotta decide between who scores more between Sterling, Alli and Mane, Martial

              1. Warbling Wendy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years

                So much to ponder, so little time before another deadline comes around!

        3. bench boost for every gamew…
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          firstly, i would not bother with SHU home next, liverpool will win but not by much. If you want to anyway, i would be tempted to go Alli-martial, then you get 0.4 left itb, Kelly will get 2 or 3 more games at max, so then i would thinking of either upgrade him or Reid, latter could be Femenia and then you could just swap Kelly for Ward.

      9. Liverpool - double defence or attack?

        GW24 isn't very far away now and as we all know Liverpool have a double gameweek (West Ham too...)

        Three players seems a must, or is it?

        If going for three the big question on everyone's mind is double defence or attack, which is the best way to go?

        Could one of Gomez or Van Dijk "cover" for Robertson or Alexander-Arnold?

        What are your current plans?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          TAA, VVD and Salah for me

        3. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          3 definitely a must.

          Mane/TAA locked in for me. Will prob wait until last minute to decide on Salah/Robbo. No compromises for me though - won’t be Gomez or VVD.

          Leaning towards Salah as greater points potential than Robbo for the DGW.

        4. ONGO GABLOGIAN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Took out Mane before his blank and lost £0.4 of value. Brought in Salah before the boxing day fixtures.

          After some soul searching, i'm going to swallow my pride and admit selling Mane was a mistake.

          I think double liverpool attack is much more dangerous and will score more points. Captain headache is not the end of the world.

          1. Warbling Wendy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I'm in the same boat. Will be bringing in Mane this week too. People are too negative about "captain headaches", having two players who you expect to both score well is a good thing

            1. ONGO GABLOGIAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 27 days ago

              agreed. salah gets the nod purely because of penos. they are both so dynamic it’s a lottery predicting who will haul, so makes sense to get both.

              1. Gooner Kebab
                • 7 Years
                1 month, 27 days ago

                Glad I'm not the only one selling Mane and now reversing that decision.

                Although after holding Salah for 3 gws, is he really better value than Robbo?

                1. ONGO GABLOGIAN
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 27 days ago

                  I promised Salah wouldn’t be anywhere near my team at the start of the season.

                  I’m bored of being scared going into every gameweek. Have both and enjoy life. Can always sell later on.

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I did the same and it's painful to think about. Got Son in to captain, who I then moved to Pogba...back to Mane this week I think.

            1. ONGO GABLOGIAN
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              as is with life, it’s how you recover from mistakes.

              the liverpool blank confused my decision process. now I have clarity.

                Absolutely. I made some rogue decisions that week but nothing you can't recover. I was convinced it would help me move to Salah but now I think Mane is the mane I want in.

                  I would be nearly 100 points clear of my 75 man league and probably sitting close to top 1000 without those mistakes. onwards and upwards.

          Just asked that question, albeit in a different way, below. I am planning to go Salah + Mane + Gomez. Wondering if it's the right.

          I suspect most of those suggesting a double Liverpool defence don't have the funds for both Salah and Mane. Am I wrong?

            Possibly...

            Team structure certainly plays a part.

            For my personal team I can do either, but Salah in means losing KDB. Not something I'd want to do right now but perhaps down the line...

              With TAA and cheapies in defence and Vardy, Ings, Maupau (DCL later?) I can afford midfield with Salah, Mane, KdB and Martial.

              After having ditched Mane for blank in order to change him to Salah, I thought I was forced to ditch Alli for Mane. And Son red card before that meant straight swap from him to Salah.

              So I am early owning my trio due to Son rc and "Alli injury", but hopefully able to handle other matters now.

          Already on the TAA, Robbo, Salah triple up. Hasn’t changed all season. I’ve been waiting for Liverpool to have a DGW for a few season now. Could be carnage not getting 3 assets in....

          Has to be 2 defenders and 1 attacker.

          Having Mane, Salah, Vardy and KDB just unbalances your team.

                I've captained 4 players against Norwich this season only got an assist from Vardy and a PK from Kane

        11. Robben Mee Blind
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Robbo, TAA and Salah/Mane for me. Had the double defence all season apart from GW18 & 19 and it has served me well.
          The double up on Mane and Salah is probably the better option but for me that would mean selling KDB whom I've had since the start and built up a lot of value in. Also I don't want the headache of which one to put the triple captain on!

          try for the 2 mids.
          don't see them keeping a CS at Wolves in DGW and there's Spurs & Utd leading into the DGW,.
          Still a lot of money carrying TAA, Salah & Mane.

          I already have Salah and TAA.

          I had 2 FTs and enough money for Alli -> Mane, but I didn't find a replacement for Otamendi that I liked. And no replacement for Grealish either, for similar price...

          So yesterday I did Grealish -> Martial, and I will get Robo for Otamendi. Team looks more balaced that way.

          Or should I get VVD instead of Robo? VVD have no replacement in this team...

            If you could change to double defence for free would you?

          Currently it is Gomez and the two mids, if i´m right Klopp will persist in playing Gomez even if the other is back, but might go VVD as what i saw yesterday is that Gomez stays in midfield on set pieces and that was off putting, i have a possible route to move to VVD, so might do that

            I would think TAA is a rotation risk. And so will be robbo if Klopp brings in another LB

            If I triple up, it'll be with Alison.

            3 games in 9 days, after they've played United at home.

            I've had Trent & Robertson since first draft, and Salah nearly all season, apart from switching to Mane for a few weeks before the blank. Just brought Salah back in after the Son hokey-cokey disaster only for Mane to outscore this week lol.

            Is this the best week to use triple captain? Or will there be easier fixtures in a double down the line. Think this is important to factor in as might make the attacking double up more attractive as can triple captain either salah or mane depending on form

          • toca
              1 month, 27 days ago

              I think Salah + Mane is not ideal. First because it imbalances your team structure, it's inevitable. Either you lose KDB or Alli. Either you lose Kane or Rashford. If it's defence you downgrade ...well .... good luck with that.

                Who wants Kane or Rashford, better strikers out there. No comparison between KDB and Alli, they're on different levels.

                    My point was about the level of team surgery needed. And for 1 game week? Losing value players you want to keep? Not for me.

                      Agree, the triple-up is a long term strategy. Perhaps the topic should have been highlighted after GW24 not now.

                2. toca
                    1 month, 27 days ago

                    Secondly, because with 3 matches in 9 days I seriously doubt Salah & Mane won't be rotated. Defensive assets are clearly less prone to rotation especially VVD and Alisson. Those 2 are guaranteed starters in all.

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

                      That's why I'm not getting in Mane until the next GW.

                        and you won't get 3 matches in 9 days for the rest of the season.

                    I guess it's wait and see for now. Monitor who will play until then and how many minutes. I have Mane and TAA already. Currently, I am leaning towards Gomez or Firmino as a differential. For now, I don't like the idea of having Salah, but that could change. In that case, I would downgrade Rashford to DCL and could bring him on for Maddison. Wolves away look problematic so no guarantee for that match in terms of goals. Double defence could maybe work better.

                    As I read responses think persuaded rotation likely- got Salah TAA for now and for best security of starts may well go Van Dijk. Certainly structure wise easier to achieve as don’t want to lose KDB and with Spurs home to Norwich that week don’t want to lose Alli either

                    Current plan is actually TAA, Mane/Salah and Firmino. May switch to a double defence. Unless using a free hit mane/Salah is going to cause a lot of issues to the rest of my team.

                    I’ve got Sterling for next 3 weeks as a Salah placeholder. Already have Mane and TAA.

                    Not going to get cute and just get Salah, Mane, TAA. I have the means to do it with good team value and I don't think cheap strikers like Ings or DCL are actually worse than their more expensive options.

                    Look:
                    Salah, Mane, KdB, Martial
                    Vardy, Ings, DCL

                    Already have Robbo and Mane so feel the most sensible option is to get Trent in and go with those three.

                    Currently have Mane & TAA. Maybe Grealish & Abraham > Yarmolenko/Snodgrass & Firmino in GW24.

                    I'm going with TAA, Salah and Gomez (assuming he's still holding down a CB slot). I'll change Salah to Mane if he still looks to be off form by the time. GW24 comes around.

                    Looking at upcoming fixtures I think one of the key questions is also about the timing of the triple-up move.
                    My main rival has gone early with getting Salah in to give himself Salah, Mane plus TAA which may be influencing my thinking but SHU, tot, MUN doesn't seem attractive enough to me for me to go for the triple up immediately. I'm going to wait until week 23 to make my move which will also allow me to assess further whether to go for VVD (easy switch) or Salah (involves more surgery and possibly the departure of KDB).
                    By leaving the decision until week 23 I can also feel a little bit more comfortable about losing KDB with City fixtures not that appealing: shu, tot, WHU, lei, ARS versus very appealing Liverpool fixtures: wol/whu, SOU, nor, WHU, wat
                    Am hoping that by postponing my move I can make some gains over the next few weeks and still benefit from week 24 and beyond.

                  Salah + Mane still the way to go especially considering DGW in mind?

                    I suspect most of those suggesting a double Liverpool defence don't have the funds for both Salah and Mane. Am I wrong?

                      I have the funds and still opting for double defence

                      There are a lot of teams with good fixtures that weekend too. It’s not out of the question that either Mane or Salah is rested for one game.

                    I went with those 2 plus TAA

                    think i would play Lundstram, but i play Dunk myself so not sure about this one. I´m playing the odds and going for a bad Chelsea day, not sure i would recommend that to others though

                    I wouldn’t take a hit. There’s still chance of rotation this week.

                  First red arrow in 10 GWs but Captain KDB dragged me into next round of the cup by 1 Point so happy with that!

                  Thinking Grealish to Martial this GW and save other FT. Will probably leave me without a Pool mid till GW 24 though, too risky?

                    I would look at Man U fixtures. They are a mix bag, coupled with man u’s mixed performances.

                  Cap KDB (EVE) H or Vardy (New) A?

                  Do we think KDB might get rotated?

                  With no other fires to put out and 2FT, Tammy > Jimenez and roll a transfer is a no-brainer right? Extra flexibility for that 3rd Pool player in a few weeks etc...

                  Alli and Kane to Mane and Jimenez for a -4?
                  I know it`s a bit risky before Southampton away, but still...

                  Would you still captain Rashford (away) against Arsenal if they only drew 1-1 when Man Utd were at home?

                  SCOUT PICKS CHALLENGE - GAMEWEEK 19 RESULTS

                  After what was a shocking gameweek for me, I've moved my attention to getting the Scout Picks Challenge results out.... leggo!

                  with Classix, FC Jammer and Expected Toulouse missing out on 44pts! Amazing round by Apples...Oranges - the difference? Trent Alexander-Arnold. Also a name and shame to Whiskerz for attempting to field Richarlison and Digne in the same XI...!

                  The Scout Picks + Differentials scored a combined total of 49pts, therefore the top 4% (have all gained an additional bonus point!).

                  Will we see more of Baines/ Digne rotation moving forward or was it just a one off case?

                    Risk of KDB on the bench after he played 90 min running everywhere?

                      He' the real engine of the team though. Pep lost to Wolves because he took him out. See the difference he made in the last game

                      it would be wrong to say no risk, but minimal as he is so important to Pep right now so unlikely. Everton are no push overs and Pep will take pride in beating Ancelotti team.No games to rest him for is it? 10 days til next league game. Likely subbed after 70 min, if they lead comfortably. Same goes for Klopp, Milner and Keita will start in midfield, but very likely he plays the front three vs SHU as he will see them as a difficult match and Shaqiri out for a couple of games also, so not really that much choice, he might go Origi but to break down that SHU defence he will need cleverness and heel-clicks, Origi is more suited to games where opposition tries to play our game.

                        Slightly disagree. Lallana is the midfield backup and Milner being kept as cover for Trent/Robbo as Matip/Lovren are out
                        Origi will most likely start vs Everton in FA cup, as he’s scored against them a few times (maybe shaq too)

                      Monitor his face aka. his energy bar. The redder he gets, the more likely he needs rest.
