FFS Cup

The latest FFS Cup fixtures and results

The draws for the sixth round of the FFS Members Cup and the seventh round of the FFS Cup have taken place following the completion of Gameweek 21.

We’re down to the final 16 Fantasy managers in both tournaments after the New Year’s Day round of fixtures.

The seventh round draw in full can be accessed here.

Our highest-ranked manager in round six (more of whom below) made it through to the round of 16.

Teddy Brewski, still chasing a cup double, beat robharr to progress to the next stage.

He will play TOMYG84 in round seven.

Our only all-top 10k clash in Gameweek 22 sees Mataatti take on Leggend2: this is the former’s third successive meeting with a manager inside the top 10,000 at the point of the tie.

Our only two remaining site users who lie outside the top 100k and who remain in the FFS Cup, stamfordbridge and A Team Has No Name, meet each other in the last 16.

FFS MEMBERS CUP

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

The sixth round draw in full can be accessed here.

An impressive four of our remaining 16 managers – including the aforementioned Teddy Brewski – are currently inside the top 1k.

Our highest-ranked entrant left in either competition remains at 14th in the world after Gameweek 21.

frankiem, who first entered the top 1k four months ago, defeated Emm7980 and will meet prbaker1980 in the sixth round.

ActorJeff and BeckerCallSaul, who have overall ranks of 388th and 586th respectively, also progressed.

The aforementioned TeddyBrewski saw off moderator TorresMagic in the first Gameweek of 2020 and will next play robharr – who he coincidentally defeated in round six of the FFS Cup.

    Which team do you prefer going forward?
    Set up is for Dgw and beyond:

    A
    Guiata
    TAA, Van Dijk, Chilwell
    Salah (TC), KDB, Maddison, Grealish
    Vardy, Ings, DCL
    (Traore, Lundstram, Rico, Button)

    B
    Guiata
    TAA (TC), Robertson, Van Dijk
    KDB, Martial, Maddison, Grealish
    Aubameyang, Vardy, Ings
    (Traore, Lundstram, Rico, Button)

    Basically
    A) Chilwell, Salah, DCL with TC on Salah
    B) Roberston, Martial, Aubameyang with TC on TAA

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    2. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      A, by quite a distance.

    3. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A all day

    4. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Is Auba still set on leaving? If yes, obviously A. But love the second option if I am honest.

    5. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Thanks, I was all set on B but I can't help thinking A is the better option.
      A is actually £1.8m cheaper as well so I will have more flexibility with future transfers.

  2. cnewman7
    • 5 Years

    A) Martial (NOR)
    or
    B) Richarlison (BHA)

    1. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      NOR looking terrible at the back .

      A for me

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      I'd prefer Martial looking at this week on its own but I'd prefer Richarlison if we are talking the next 5 weeks.

    Have a decent record in fpl in recent years, but struggling.
    Am normally quite patient, but dont seem to be going anywhere, sitting at 400k
    When do you pull trigger and take some left field punts to attempt a catch up, or try and give it another few gws before getting desperate?!

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      When you're 400k halfway through the season.

    2. Snevitz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      400k isn't too bad, there is plenty of time to catch up.
      I've been trying to slowly improve my overall rank after a terrible start but I haven't picked anyone out of the ordinary.
      Just focus on picking whoever you think will score the most points and ignore things like ownership.

    3. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      how long have you been around the 400k mark?

      1. jason_ni
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Long time... like 10 weeks!

        1. Rasping Drive
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          In that case, time to shake things up!

    4. Athletic Nasherbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Start doing so now.

      I also have a decent record and this is the first year I’ve decided to play the early second wildcard.

    5. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      It's a balance.

      My advice would be try and hold onto the likes of Trent and de Bruyne, but go with Salah over Mane for captaincy GW24, and use that fourth midfield slot to take some punts.

      1. jason_ni
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I have salah over mane.. that whole salah non assist for mane was a killer last week!!

    Sean Dyche on Joe Hart -> Aston Villa:

    It is unlikely anyone will be going out of the building in January but not impossible. Now and again there is the perfect deal that works for everyone — right for the player and right for the clubs.

    1. avfc82
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Not sure how I feel about this one.

      1. HamezMace
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Villa signing a keeper who used to play for England, but is now surplus to requirements at Burnley, sounds familiar, what could go wrong?

        1. avfc82
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          I'm just not sure how much of an upgrade he is over what we've got, with Nyland, Kalinic and Steer once fit. Think I'd prefer the money / wages to be invested in a central midfielder and forward.

    Ryan
    Lundstram/Soy/TAA
    KDB/Alli/Grealish/Mane
    Vardy/Abraham/Rashford
    Bench: Button/Kelly/Rico/Saka

    1FT

    Maddison in for Alli for free

    Thoughts?

  6. Zlatanzo
      1 month, 17 days ago

      Alli, Martial, Tammy --> Salah, Traore, DCL... is the only way I can fit in Salah. Surely ripping my team apart like this isn't worth it just to fit him in?

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Good moves

      2. Klein
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Losing martial is a bit heart heaving.

      3. thegaffer82
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 17 days ago

        Really tough decision this one. And I'm seeing similar dilemmas for many people - several downgrades to get Salah.

        Maybe try to make the moves as close to DGW as possible and then make sure you captain Salah. And, then I think it's just about worth it!

        1. Zlatanzo
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Will do, cheers !

      4. cigan
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 17 days ago

        I'm going for Rash & Alli > Mane & DCL next week but any ideas what to do this week with 2 FT?

        A) Alli > Richarlison/City mid (but can't do Sterling) - one week punt
        B) Rico > Holgate/Dunk/Webster/Balbuena/Stephens
        C) Guaita > Fabianski
        D) just do next week's move (but hard to ignore Rash vs Nor)

        Guaita 4.0
        TAA Soy Lund Catchart Rico
        Salah KDB Alli Maddison Dendo
        Vardy Rash Ings

        1. Zlatanzo
            1 month, 17 days ago

            B or C, whatever you think its more important

            1. cigan
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Leaning more towards B, will probably keep Guaita because of Palace fixtures after gw23

          • cigan
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Considering A with Martial too - but most likely Mahrez unless he plays 90 midweek

        2. Wolves Ay We
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Have Salah and TAA and KDB. and front 3 of Vardy, Jimenez, Ings

          Alli--->Mane and Traore--> Hayden for -4 will give me the Liverpool Triple.

          Worth it?

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            for sure

          2. SHOOTER MCGINN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Next week for free? Traore could do well this week

            1. Wolves Ay We
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              If Mane goes up by Friday I won't be able to do it.

              1. SHOOTER MCGINN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                If you'll be priced out then still worth doing as Mane is the one you really want. Friday deadline might help though as less time for the rise and most people probably won't realise until it's Friday

        3. SHOOTER MCGINN
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 17 days ago

          Maupay or DCL seems like a 50/50 call that I'll definitely get wrong. DCL better stats but really don't trust Everton. Which would you choose?

          1. Zlatanzo
              1 month, 17 days ago

              DCL

            • Snevitz
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              DCL looks good until week 26.

              Deulofeu possible?

              Out of those, Dominic

              1. SHOOTER MCGINN
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                DCL is exact money so just out of reach unfortunately

          2. ResultatFar
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 17 days ago

            Is it just me or is Doucouré looking like a good option for his price? Anyone better in the 6.0 mid-bracket?

            1. Zlatanzo
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Have considered him, playing more of a number 10 role now isn't he?

              • Holmes (specialist in failu…
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                As an owner, I'm satisfied with his performance and returns in last 3 games.

                Sarr is preferable but below 6, cant see any exciting options. Snodgrass is also an option.

              • dmkp
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                I'm getting Sarr for just a little more at 6.2, he has looked really good in recent games and is delivering points

              • avfc82
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Sarr is the better option, but a little more expensive.

              • 4 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Who is currently the best GK option from these 3 (I know they're not that great):

              A. Nyland
              B. Krul
              C. McCarthy

              1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                McCarthy

                • 10 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Yeah I'd say McCarthy right now.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 17 days ago

              Pope / Button
              TAA / Balbuena / Lundstram / Kelly / Rico
              Salah / Mane / KDB / Grealish / Cantwell
              Abraham / Ings / Vardy

              2 FTs. 0.00 in the bank.

              Cantwell & Abraham > Martial & Greenwood feels like FPL suicide this week, with Abraham also at home?

              Better to just downgrade Pope or replace Kelly/Rico, and leave myself 2 FTs again next week?

              1. farmerfat
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 17 days ago

                Yes I agree.
                Would not take out Tammy this week.
                Try roll the 2 FT until 24

                1. Le Bluff

                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  Thanks. And yes, thinking either:
                  a) Pope > McCarthy
                  b) Rico/Kelly > Brandon Williams

                  Do you have lots of cash in the bank? I feel that team is missing a big hitter somewhere...

                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  Need a mid below 6.0... would you go for Traore or Doucore? Already have Jimenez if that affects anything...

                  1. thegaffer82
                    • 8 Years
                    1 month, 17 days ago

                    Traore.

                    I wouldn't let the fact you own Jimi put you off Traore. Just go for whichever you think scores the most points.... which I happen to think is Adama

                • thegaffer82
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 17 days ago

                  .................Ryan
                  ..TAA - Soy - Lundy - Rico - Kelly
                  Mane - KDB - Maddy - Grealish - Alli
                  ......Vardy - Rashford - Connolly

                  Really struggling how to use my 2FT's this week. On the one hand I want to start making some moves to bring in Salah somewhere down the line before the DGW. But on the other hand I also want to switch formation from 3-5-2 to 3-4-3 to take advantage of having some decent forwards to choose from (Jimi, Rash, Ings, Tammy, Vardy all looking good IMO). But the formnation change brings me no closer to Salah coming in before DGW.

                  So, basically, would you do:
                  A) formation change - Grealish & Connolly > Ings & Dendonker

                  B) Use 1 ft to allow me to bring Salah in later on and roll the other FT - Alli > Traore

                  1. Zlatanzo

                      I think bringing in Salah is more important than the formation change imo

                          and I think Grealish is better than Ings long term anyway

                            Thanks for the advice Zlat. I think you're probably right about Grealish. He can score and assist even when Villa are woeful.

                      If I change Pope > Fab or other 4.9 Keeper before DGW24 then I need to downgrade one of:
                      Soyuncu, Grealish or Jiminez to be able to do Sterling > Salah

                      If I stick with Pope I have exact funds for Sterling > Salah

                      I'm trying to roll a transfer each week so I have 2 transfers for GW24, maybe an injury or red card somewhere in the team will solve the problem.

                      So is it worth changing Pope if it means changing another good player out too?

                      On the radar for coming in are in GW24 with a nice fixture swing
                      Grealish > Sarr
                      Jiminez > Deeney
                      Soyuncu > 4.5 or less

                        Nah, GK transfers are not great anyway imo. Then when it also involves downgrading an outfield player to make it work just makes it even less appealing.

                        Can you afford Ryan?
                        He's 4.8m.

                          Would be 0.2m short of Salah instead of 0.3m

                      In all my seasons of playing FPL, I think I've only used a free transfer to make an unforced Goalkeeper transfer once.
                      Ironically, that was when I took the overperforming Pope out a few seasons ago, and brought in Pickford. Pope went on to destroy Pickford and it cost me somewhere between 40-50 points over the rest of the season. Nasty.

                      But with half a season gone, I am getting itchy with Pope again. I expected him to be the standout Goalkeeper this year and while he has done okay - he's not doing great in terms of saves or bonus - despite keeping 7 clean sheets, only 1 less than Leicester who have the most this season.

                      My attentions are being drawn to Ryan, and the newly returned Fabianski, who has a DGW on the horizon.

                      But is is really worth a transfer to take a goalkeeper out? Pope is doing alright, and really, the goalkeeper position is the one you don't really want to be chopping and changing. A set and forget (or two rotating goalkeepers) is the best bet, and the idea of using transfers on this position does not seem very lucrative.

                      No goalkeeper has hit the 100 point mark yet, and Pope is actually only 9 points behind the top scoring goalkeeper (Schmeichel).

                      Sure, he has some tough fixtures, but if you are planning on "setting and forgetting" it doesn't really matter, as any keeper you bring in will have to play the same teams at some point.

                      Or maybe its best to just pick a keeper up until GW 33-34, when wildcards will likely be played? In that case, Pope probably is worth moving on as has some decent games around this period and may be the standout option.

                      Leno might actually be a good pick in this regard. Great fixtures from now right up until 33, and then you may look to wildcard and switch him out.

                      What is everyone planning on doing with goalkeepers? Looking for a new one, or happy with what you've got?

                        Burnley's fixtures are vile unlike Brighton who's fixtures are the opposite. Pope to Ryan seems a no brainer

                          I played my WC a couple of weeks back and settled on Ryan, which I'm happy with, but I think Pope owners should consider a move.

                          Just look at Guaita's returns GW14-17, 34 points... it can sometimes be worth switching.

                            Yeah well I bought Guaita in for GW18-21 for a measly 10pts. And the ticker was green all the way through that.

                        Was considering Pope > Fabianski, but leaves me 0.3m short of Sterling > Salah. See above.

                          I'm in a similar position to this. Would like to move Pope on but the 0.2 cost of moving him to Ryan or any other 4.8GK prohibits Salah in for GW24, which has to be my priority.

                        I'm also looking at Pope out. I have Ryan already and 2 FT but really not confident what to do with them so may make a GK transfer. Then have more info next week on likes of West ham and Everton under new management. Options for me are McCarthy to get some extra cash or a slight upgrade to foster

                          Have exact money to do Grealish and Jiminez to Richy and DCL but even though I want to get ahead of the curve it feels wrong

                        Same position for me. Really want to move Pope on and get maybe McCarthy or maybe even Leno. If I had 2 FT and not much to do I would for sure move Pope on. Not sure yet. Probably will keep for this week. I expect 1 or 2 points.

                        Im selling Pope for Henderson this week.

                        Sheffield Utd sit 3rd on the fixture ticker and Burnley are last between GW22-30 so the move does make sense to me.

                        If I had 2FT's and literally nothing else to do, then I'd make a GK tranny in a heartbeat. But otherwise, it's not worth it imo.

                        The difference between GKers is not very big. And with save points and penalty saves making up a decent part of the GK's overall score, you don't even need a cleanie to get points with a GKer.

                        I don't have Pope, so it's easy for me to say, but I wouldn't bother with the transfer. Instead use your FT's to try to get Mane, Salah & TAA in for Dgw

                        Went for Ramsdale 2 weeks back. Bou are poor defensively but they were always poor. Have to wait for the fruit to ripe with him. Fixtures are good too. Ryan probably the best option right now.

                        I have switched GK twice this season Pope > Hendo (WC) > Fab last week

                        Hoping that Fab will outscore Hendo based on fixtures and new manager effect, then he can leave after GW25

                        No Position is less important than the GK-Position.
                        I will stick with my "set and forget"-GK Ryan.

                        I will trade Button to a playing GK with good fixtures in my Bench-Boost-Week.

                        I had Pope from the start and switched him to Henderson then Guiata. I'll probably have him until 30 or when the WC kicks in as the fixtures are good. My team's been fairly settled and I've burned transfers as I can't see a move to make and I'm happy with my squad. I wouldn't normally change keeper so much but it's proved lucrative so far.

                        Pope>Fabianski done. Ryan is probably a better bet but I can't resist the prospect of all those DGW save points.

                        1 month, 17 days ago

                        With a dismal rank in the 800k range, I am moving for Fabianski in the double gameweek. At this point I need to roll the dice a bit, and at worst he should match most single gameweek goalies.

                        I agree with what most of you say here, goalkeeper transfers are relatively low upside compared to other positions because save points tend to "flatten out" their performance relative to each other and across fixture difficulty, when compared to how other positions' assets perform.

                        However, recently I found myself with 2ft and no desire to change any of my other 14 players, plus the DGW had just been announced. So I saw Pope to Fabianski as a transfer which stopped me having to burn a transfer, removed a player with poor fixtures for one with better ones (plus an additional fixture), and get off a poorly performing team to one which may or may not have a new manager bounce. So the circumstances enabled the transfer really. I wouldn't advise making it a priority transfer though, and certainly wouldn't advise taking a hit to change them.

                        Nobody considering Foster? Watford have good form and fixtures are decent. I also have Pope and thinking of Fab or Foster

                        Would like Fabs for the DGW but he does look like another keeper transfer waiting to happen with West Ham's fixtures.
                        Ryan looks the best bet.

                        Did Pope to Ramsdale on wc, already regretting that. With two FT's and nothing other transfers really needed, I'm tempted to ship Ramsdale already, even if this weeks fixture not that bad for Bournemouth. Will have to burn an FT if not doing it this GW, though. Unfortunately 0.1 off Fabianski , so Ryan or Foster appear the best alternatives. Also tempted to go cheap with McCarthy and upgrade Rico, but pose a problem if McCarthty loses his spot.

                        Started with Pope changed to Henderson now with Fab. Will probably go back to Hendo after 25 as well! Shall see...
                        These are FT too, if you’ve got nothing pressing it’s nice to try and catch the swings or take a gut punt.

                        Sold Pope for Henderson sth like 5-6 GWs ago and will keep Henderson all season I think.

                        Not gonna fall for Fabianski just bc he has a DGW24 - could hardly be any worse, dont expect any CS so not worth one FT.

                        Will keep Hendo until 2nd WC

                        Henderson set and forget. Definitely worth a transfer

                          I agree. Dont forget about gw31 vs manu though.

                              Its prime for it yes. Given that gw31 is already a blank.

                              I'm eyeing up gw24 for FH though. Could shape up with some teams blanking and some others having a double.

                        I’m on WC so I could literally pick anyone and I’m picking McCarthy. Yes he’s cheap and an enabler but my rationale runs deeper than that. I’m a Saints season ticket holder and the eye test alone tells me Saints have significantly improved defensively over the last six weeks. Stats back this up. He’s nailed as first choice (Hassenhutl has talked him up in the match day programmes).

                        I’m really on the fence on this one. I’ve got two FTs and I don’t have an obvious move for this week (I’ll get a third Liverpool asset, but not yet). Seems sensible in that case to do the move (Pope to Ryan) but like Az, I hate the idea of using a transfer on a largely undifferentiated position.

                        I've had Ryan since GW1 and couldn't be happier. I only went with him because I didn't want to rotate (too much stress trying to pick the right one in a pair each GW) and by drafting both him and Button in from BHA I thought I'd be covered in case of injury/suspension. I don't think I'll be switching, even when it's wildcard time.

                        I'm asking the exact same questions this week as I was planning on moving Pope on.

                        I have no idea who to bring in though. Fabianski is a nostalgic pick and is boosted by the double, but fixtures are no better than Pope's. I quite like Ryan, Foster, or even McCarthy but again not sure which I would choose.

                        I think Leno is interesting but can you really live with yourself if Arsenal continue to be the Arsenal we know.

                        I dont agree with these thoughts.....

                        There's always gonna be oppurtunities in a season where probability suggests that a GK-transfer will reap rewards. Pope-owners might be in this position right now.

                        No use looking back at past events where suvh moves failed. just go with likelyhood. If switching goalies is what suggests the biggest yield, then go for it imo.

                        Another thing that bugs me is that every man and his dog is set on "set and forget" as far superior to rotating goalies. I'm sure studying this and that from past statistics will back this up, but that doesnt mean that rotation is a bad route.

                        When everyone zigs it can be very beneficial to zag. Some of the "truths" widely held by people in the community will present some interesting possibilities for those willing to make up their own minds.

                      Wildcard dilemma I was hoping to get your thoughts on.....

                      A - Maddison, Sarr, DCL

                      B - Grealish, Richarlison, Delefeou/Deeney

                      Who scores more long term.

                          Hard choice. Like maddi but also think deeney is an upgrade to sarr. Probably would go B. Maddi instead of rich and i would pick b.

                            Hmm yes, I did want some Everton cover as I like their fixtures. Tough to get them all in! Thanks though

                        Is Fabianski the best pope replacement here? Already own dunk so not tempted by Ryan.

                          Is there a 3.9m defender who is likely to become a regular starter? I need to get rid of Kelly this week and bank the rest of the money. Is Simpson the most nailed?

                          If you have 2 FT's and use only 1, will you have 2 FT's again next week? i.e. the rolled one and the new one. I say yes, colleague says no.

                          The Liverpool Triple-up is a good example as to why building up Team Value is important at the start of the season. Those with high Team Value can have both Salah and Mane without downgrading players and decimating their teams.

                            The difference between good TV and shite TV is something like having DCL instead of Rashford. Everyone has plenty for whatever 3 Liverpool they want.

                              Exactly. The likes of Grealish, Maddison etc in midfield and all the cheap options in defence should make it pretty easy to have a decent team still after getting Salah & Mane.
