What Warren Buffett can teach us about Fantasy Premier League

In his latest Pro Pundits column, former Fantasy Premier League champion Simon March asks what FPL managers can learn from the ‘Oracle of Omaha’.


Warren Buffett is considered by many to be the world’s greatest living investor with a net worth of over $89.9bn. Unfortunately for Warren, he’s never played Fantasy Premier League and so he’s never really understood the true meaning of success nor has he experienced the thrill of winning tickets to two Premier League matches of his choice.

However, I do think there’s a lot that we Fantasy managers can learn from the ‘Oracle of Omaha’ and so this article will look at how elements of Buffett’s investment strategy may be applied to FPL.

Value Investing

Warren Buffett largely adopts a ‘value investing’ strategy which essentially means he aims to identify undervalued stock, according to certain criteria, invest in them and then wait for the market to correct itself, thus yielding a profit.

Because the mechanics of the FPL player price system reflect the stock market with investment in both types of asset increasing their price, an obvious application of a value investing strategy would be to identify and buy underpriced players and wait for other Fantasy managers to catch on and buy them too, thus raising their price and allowing you to profit through increased team value. 

For example, you could easily argue that the likes of Man City’s Kevin De Bruyne (£10.6m), Sheffield United’s John Lundstram (£5.1m) and Chelsea’s Tammy Abraham (£7.8m) were all underpriced at the beginning of the season and all for varying reasons. These include a return from a long injury for De Bruyne, a misallocated defender classification for Lundstram and the expectation that Abraham would be a supporting rather than starting striker. Their performances have attracted investment thus going some way to correcting their underpricing and, therefore, those managers that identified this investing opportunity early on would have yielded a substantial profit.

Of course, while a high team value can help, it is points that ultimately count in FPL and, while the two often follow each other, value investing of this type won’t necessarily win you your mini-leagues.

However, you can also look at value investing in relation to points by seeking contextual value opportunities. For example, Brighton’s Mathew Ryan (£4.8m), Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (£12.3m) and Everton’s Lucas Digne (£5.7m) are all probably priced correctly (some might even be overpriced) with respect to the overall season but you could also argue that they are all ‘underpriced’ within the context of their next five to six fixtures given that these are largely favourable for all three and include a Double Gameweek for Salah. 

Alternatively, two players may be accurately priced individually but offer a strong rotation, allowing them to be played only in favourable fixtures. Budget players with only good fixtures may offer comparable value to set-and-forget premium assets with more varied fixture difficulty.

There will be many other opportunities for contextual value and so, since much of FPL is about making the most of a finite budget, accurately timing and executing a value-led strategy of this type can create a big advantage.

Long-Term Investment

In some respects, the opposite of ‘value investing’ is ‘momentum investing’ which involves acquiring assets currently increasing in price in the hope that they will continue to grow in the (typically near) future. In FPL, ‘momentum’ would be the equivalent of a ‘bandwagon’; players who suddenly become popular and attract explosive levels of investment.

Buffett famously eschews momentum investing, preferring instead to carefully pick his stocks based on solid, fundamental business criteria and then hold them for as long as is profitable. He is quoted as saying: “Only buy something that you’d be perfectly happy to hold if the market shut down for ten years.” This means that Buffett will miss out on the fast profits that come with certain investment bubbles but he will also not be left high and dry when they burst. Instead, Buffett’s success comes from achieving relatively modest but consistent returns, compounded over decades of investment.

Obviously, FPL and financial investments occur over very different timeframes and it’s probably not the best strategy to just stick with your Gameweek 1 team for the entire season (then again…) but, again, there are lessons to be learnt here.

Firstly, it is the importance of understanding and identifying what are the ‘fundamentals’ in good FPL players. As with investing, everyone will have their own interpretation of this but, for me, the fundamentals I look at include; how good a team the player plays in, the significance of their role in that team, how nailed on they are and whether or not they are on set pieces. I tend to add variables such as fixture difficulty and some statistical information on top of those, but these are the basics that I look at first. Current players who have, I think, extraordinarily strong fundamentals in this respect include De Bruyne, Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) and Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) and I always look for these types of players at the beginning of the season and when wildcarding.

As per Buffett, I also try and pick only players that I would be happy to have in my team for the whole season if I were to be hit by that proverbial bus. This isn’t, I stress, with any expectation that I will actually keep this player for the whole season, it just means that, if I have bigger fires to fight in my squad I will, at worst, be left holding on to a fundamentally sound player. I find this helps me avoid hits and, while it inevitably means that I miss out on some bandwagon points, I, like Buffett, get to miss out on the bandwagon busts as well.

Diversification

Diversification is a classic business school concept which suggests that investing in too few companies or industries is dangerous given the potential of a collapse or industry-wide downturn and, therefore, it is better to diversify investments and ‘spread the risk.’ This concept is applied all the time in FPL when we consider doubling or tripling up on players from a certain team.

Given the prevalence of this concept, it is maybe surprising therefore to hear that Buffett rejects it almost entirely stating that: “Diversification is protection against ignorance. It makes little sense if you know what you’re doing.” In FPL, it must be said, diversification can also offer protection against rotation, fixture difficult and dips in team form, however, following Buffett in rejecting it may also have its own benefits.

For example, I don’t think it’s entirely a coincidence that I won FPL in a year where my real-world team won the Premier League as it meant that there was a selection of really strong FPL assets available in a squad that I, as a long-term fan, understood really well. While I didn’t have any inside information as such, I felt I knew the players, the manager, the system, which types of teams they tended to do well or struggle against and so on. I tripled-up on players from this team almost the entire season and it seemed to pay off.

These circumstances, of course, were pretty lucky for me and I’ve no doubt they helped me to make better FPL decisions that season. In fact, looking at some of the other former winners’ winning seasons, it seems that many of their real-world teams also performed well.

So perhaps it’s true that, if you know your chosen subject well enough, diversification for the sake of diversification is unnecessary, perhaps even detrimental. It’s undoubtedly easier to know your stuff if you’re focusing on fewer clubs and, if you are a particular aficionado of a team or several teams, you might gain more of an advantage from concentrating your efforts and player selection on what you know best than you would from ‘spreading the risk’ across lots of sides.  

Summary

In summary, I believe that value-investing, a long-term mindset and focus rather than diversification, all principles that have helped Warren Buffett becomes the fourth-richest man in the world, may all also have benefits if applied to FPL.

Considering this, it’s a shame that Buffett has never tried his hand at FPL preferring, apparently, to play the card game bridge which, I understand he’s also pretty good at. Then again, since I think he’d be pretty good at FPL too, maybe Bridge’s gain isn’t entirely our loss…

      Why not playing Soy over Ings?

      1. EmreCan Hustle
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Ings is the most in form player in the game atm. He could score vs Leicester.

        1. Baravan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          True, then the only concern would be Maddison, wait for the team news.

          1. EmreCan Hustle

      Soy number 1

  2. De Gea is GOAT
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    So torn for the cap pick this GW guys. Vardy's the obvious choice but i need to make some serious ground in ML. I am now considering KDB. Any thoughts? TIA

    A) Vardy
    B) KDB
    C) Mane
    D) Jimi

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      B has the potential to score big.
      I am sticking with A though. Don't think this is the GW for a captain punt.

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Thanks mate. If you were in my shoes (100 pnts off ML leader) would you still go Vardy?

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          Considering what Vardy did to Soton earlier in the season, I would go with Vardy. I know it won't happen again but I am not brave enough to go for someone else 🙂

          1. De Gea is GOAT
            • 3 Years
            4 months, 26 days ago

            Fair call. Might just stick to Vardy this GW. Thanks a lot 🙂

      2. Zico Senna

        It’s the perfect week for a cap punt imo

  3. screamer73
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Guys, need some help. Bench one out of:

    Salah, Mane, KDB, Martial, Grealish, Vardy, Jimenez, Ings.

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Grealish

    2. Baravan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Between Ings and Grealish, bench the one with the less owned.

    Thoughts 😉

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years

      I am not moving from Vardy but its an interesting pick.

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Currently on Vardy but think Pool will smash spurs

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah, wouldn't rule it out. The way Pool started the first half vs City earlier in the season and then Leicester.

    2. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Could work.
      With quite a few decent captain options this week, it will come all come down to the FPL gods...

    Who would you bench?
    A/ Maupay (away to Everton)
    B/ Grealish (home to City)
    C/ Ings (away to Leicester)
    D/ Alli (home to Liverpool)

    Thanks in advance!

  6. FF Red!
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Captain?

    A. Vardy
    B. Salah
    C. Mane
    D. Kdb
    E. Jiminez

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Tough one this GW for sure!

      1. FF Red!
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Very tough. Vardy the polls favourite but tempted by Salah/Mane

    2. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      If you're chasing rank then go with a differential pick like Pool or KdB, otherwise Vardy.

      1. FF Red!
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Currently ranked around 350k but have taken a minus 4. On Vardy at min but can see Liverpool scoring 4 or 5 v spurs.

        1. De Gea is GOAT
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          4/5 vs spurs? Bit of madness maybe. I can seriously see Spurs parking the bus at some point. KDB better pick than the LIV guys this GW imo

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 26 days ago

            I think they're guaranteed to lose, but I agree I don't think it will be a mauling like that. Granted, if it does end up that way I wouldn't say I would be surprised.

          2. FF Red!
            4 months, 26 days ago

            Spurs defence is very poor. Mane/Salah well rested. Think KDB could be rested this week

      2. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        People need to stop chasing differentials for points. Let other people make stupid decisions and you will gain rank. There's a time and a place for a risk here or there, but generally pick the good players.

        1. FF Red!
          4 months, 26 days ago

          True. Currently on Vardy. Will prob stick with him and captain Salah/Mane next week v United

        2. De Gea is GOAT
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          100% agree. At the same time youre almost guaranteed most ML rivals will cap Vardy and if your differential pick does better that's also a big rank jump. What a head f****

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 26 days ago

            Agreed. ML v OR is a completely different game. Granted, I've played the differential route against a ML rival two seasons in the last few years and it's gone horribly wrong, but it's all you can really try in that scenario. A la Salah and Kane in their Golden Boot seasons...

            1. De Gea is GOAT
              • 3 Years
              4 months, 26 days ago

              Guess its a risk to take at the end of the day. If you were chasing by 100 pnts would you try someone different this GW? Also have KDB, Mane and Jimi. Apologies FFRED. Last question from me haha

              1. BDA Shadow
                • 5 Years
                4 months, 26 days ago

                Sure, why not.

        3. Zico Senna
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          Totally disagree, how on earth are you supposed to gain ground by not going a tad different? Just be boring and tread water? Not the way to play the game.

          1. BDA Shadow
            • 5 Years
            4 months, 26 days ago

            For OR, you're significantly underestimating all of the people who will who will make poor decisions trying to 'catch up'. For a ML rival of course you'll need something different. Where you are in the ranks and where you're trying to get also matters a bit for OR. More often than not you will end up falling by picking sub-optimal players.

            1. Zico Senna
              • 8 Years
              4 months, 26 days ago

              Well at over 2m OR, i have to chase. I can’t be plain picking the same cap as everyone else. Also reading between the lines, i don’t think Vardy is the gift that everyone is expecting this GW, so comes down to finer thinking a gut also. I wouldn’t say Mane or KDB are sub optimal in comparison. Even if i was trying to protect rank, i’d still say Vardy isn’t the best pick this GW, but anything can happen, could very well be wrong:)

              1. BDA Shadow
                • 5 Years
                4 months, 26 days ago

                I wouldn't argue against those (c) options at all. I think people are vastly overestimating Vardy this week, but I still think he's a great option for all the 'real' reasons.

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Which do you think will score most?

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Definitely agree with Zico. We're both at a stage of the season where risks need to be taken. In saying that i also know that 100 pnts can be caught up with if we make the right calls every week which means sometimes picking the same captain as your opponents with the hope that the rest of the team does well and makes up ground until its time to use our chips. So yeah very difficult position to be in. Whose your cap Zico?

  7. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years

    Bottomed. Best cap pick this gw?

    a. vardy
    b. rashford
    c. salah
    d. kdb

    1. Galza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      I’m going Rashford.
      Simply has to be goals in that game..

      1. Nabs Kebabs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        i'm with ya

    2. Baravan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Between Rashford and Vardy, Norwich is more liable to concede than Saints.

  8. Lecky Legs FC
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Worth keeping Aguero this GW holds a lot of value in my team will probably start this GW but I need to upgrade DEF/MID thoughts?

    1. Baravan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Hold, think he will start against the leaky Villa defence.

      1. Lecky Legs FC
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        I'd like to think so after missing EVE at (H) last weekend and playing in the FA Cup will wait for Pep's presser

  9. bigbudgie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Play Rico or Soy? Currently on Lund TAA Soy (Rico, Kelly)

    1. EmreCan Hustle
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Soy

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Most will say Soy but I do fancy Rico to be in the points this weekend

  10. fcsaltyballs
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Final dilemma of the gameweek, barring any surprises, is who to captain.

    I have Mane and Salah, so I'm happy with LIV coverage... I think they will win well but doubling up means it would be more risky putting my eggs all in one basket by (C) one of them.

    So that leaves KDB and Vardy...

    1. KDB (avl) [there is a danger of rest, also he could be in a deep role, but they are playing Villa and could rip them apart with him at the centre of it all and has 2 days extra rest than the below]

    2. Vardy (SOU) [his opposition have improved massively in form, and may want some response to the 0-9, Vardy looked ok midweek, and Ndidi could be a huge loss, but its Vardy and he good PARTY, hes well rested from xmas, his EO will be highest so safe option too]

    Thoughts and comments welcome

    Thanks all

      Thinking Vardy. He will go all out for the baby celebration, plus its his birthday. Rashford has neither. 🙂

        Fail to understand why this should matter.

        1. Disturbed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          So do I, tbh.

          1. Kopkloppers
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years

            Smile. Could have the opposite effect. Due to this KDB C this week

    2. Baravan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Aguero, Mahrez and Sterling are more likely to get returns this Game than De bruyne, when the defence is too weak, the forward players could easily do the work, making De Bruyne less likely to move forward.

      1. Baravan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Imagine, with one pass from De Bruyne, the forward players will have a good space to do the work together. The points will share between the forward 3's.

    Anyone else getting terribly incorrect info from the members RMT tool?

    Telling me to play Stek over Pope.

    Greenwood over Gomez and Grealish.

    Strange.

    Anyone way to sort this out mods? Cheers

    1. Holmes

      Based on fixtures and assuming they start

      1. Yankee Toffee
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        It should also be based on who is ahead of them in the pecking order. For example Pickford ahead of Stek.

        At least it used to be like this.

        Otherwise it’s not a very good tool, is it?

        1. Holmes
          • 6 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          Right

          I guess its assuming that if incase Pickford gets injured in warm up or before that then Stek will be better than Pope.

          It is probably considering all IFs and BUTs.

            I don’t think it’s taking probability of starting into account.

            I sent FFS support an email.

            Cheers Holmes, I’m sure we’ll solve the mystery 😉

    Morning DZ

    Who would you give the armband to out of

    KDB
    Vardy

    Any ideas would be welcomed

    1. Baravan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Vardy between these 2

    2. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      I am going KDB. If Vardy had played last week and Ig played badly as sub I would choose vardy

      1. Klein
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Me too kdb for now.

  14. doyeon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Stoked that Rashy rose today cos it gives me the exact funds again to do Rashy to DCL & Zaha to Sonny.....I had been priced out by 0.1 after DCL rose a few days ago. Would you do Rashy to DCL & Zaha to Sonny for free next GW? I have already used 1 FT to do Pope to Flaps.

    1. Kopkloppers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      I just got the extra .1 to do your move if I wanted

        Sweet mate, I really think Sonny is gonna step up in Kane's absence....as long as he doesn't get sent off again!

    2FT - 0.7ITB

    Am I gtg?
    What do i do with the 2FT?
    Shipping Alli and save other FT?
    Alli for who?

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Alli to Richarlison and maybe start Rico instead of Soy as you have 2 Lei defense?

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Martial if you do not like Richarlison?

    2. De Gea is GOAT
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Definitely save imo. But if you really want Alli out id say for Traore. Would say Maddison but that would mean LEI triple up.

      1. De Gea is GOAT
        • 3 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Just realised Madd is flagged. Disregard. The two mentioned above are really good shouts.

  16. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Am i gtg? Or should I get DCL instead of Maddison as he is a doubt? On a WC.

    Ryan
    TAA, Sidibe, Lundstram
    KDB, Mane, Martial, Maddison,Richarlison
    (V)ardy, Jimenez

    Button, Soyuncu, Williams, Greenwood

      Im not sure id go triple everton. Id have a punt on a Watford or Brighton forward but plan to get Ings in after gw24

  17. mpalmercity76

    Morning.

    Zaha and Maddison out for Salah and Choudry for a 4 point hit.

    Wont play Choudry just need to get the Mo man in.

    Worth it? Thoughts please or is Mane the Mane Man?

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Mane the main man

  18. mojoindojo

    Abraham(C) too maverick?

    1. JT11fc

      Just abit too much me thinks

    2. BDA Shadow
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      They've conceded at least 2 against all the big clubs this season. Can't say he was on my radar, but now that you mention it... maybe a (vc) to Vardy (c).

          Same here 🙂

  24. BDA Shadow
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Is it just me, or is there no worse feeling than taking a few hits in a season and then rolling two free transfers shortly after one of them... Is there anything to do with this lot:

    Hendo - Gazza
    TAA - Soy - Lund (Rico - Kelly)
    Salah - Mane - KDB - Grealish (Hayden)
    Vardy - Tammy - Ings

    0.1 ITB, 2 FTs.

    Cheers.

    1. Lazaretti
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Gazza out McCarthy maybe.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 26 days ago

        Definitely appreciate that as it's one of the things I'm looking at. I basically only want Gazza for GWs 23/24 though and then I was going to drop for a 4.0.
        It's a close call; I expect Wolves to score against SOT, but I can also see NOR getting one against TOT.

  25. sammymitch99

    any suggestions with this squad, got 2FT with 0.7 ITB.

    Henderson (Button)

    TAA, Periera, Lund (Aurier, Willems)

    Richarlison, KDB, Grealish, Mane (Cantwell)

    Vardy, Ings, Rashford

    thinking of Aurier down to Holgate just for funds but not sure past that any suggestions would help!

    1. JT11fc

      Ye do it

  26. Ason Willa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Is there anywhere I can get the kind of stats presented in the members area for non-PL assets? I'd like to do a bit more digging on Krzysztof Piatek given that Aston Villa are interested in signing him.

    His stats last year were magnificent, but the goals have dried up this year. I don't know if its because something about the way the team plays has changed or it's the player. Anyone else follow series A?

    1. BNMC
      4 months, 26 days ago

      AC Milan have gone through many managers and tactical changes so it's hard to pinpoint exactly what went wrong.

      Also I hear it's not just Villa that want him. Spurs and West Ham have expressed interest.

      https://1xbet.whoscored.com/Players/339504/Show/Krzysztof-Piatek

      Aren't Spurs close to signing him though?

    3. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      FFS he's off to Spurs

  27. POZZY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Guys... Maddison - stick or twist? Not sure about Vardy's performance stats without Maddison's creativity. HELP!!

    1. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Stick, but have good 1st sub

    2. Zico Senna
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Also with Ndidi out.

  28. BNMC
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Next week I'm taking Alli out. Who should I replace him with? (8.3 budget)

    Martial
    Maddison
    Moura
    Someone else (I own Grealish)

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Richarlison

      1. BNMC
        4 months, 26 days ago

        I'll have triple EVE...

    2. Taffer
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      D Silva or Richarlison

    3. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Same situation as you.

      Part of me thinks keep him for the next 2 games as they're favourable on paper, but on the other hand there are some decent alternatives like David Silva.

      1. BNMC
        4 months, 26 days ago

        I'm taking him out to fund double LIV defense.

        1. Ason Willa
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 26 days ago

          Then I think D Silva, particularly as he missed the cup game mid-week and has a favourable fixture this weekend.

  29. Tinmen
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Folks, what do you think as Martial as captain?

    I realise United aren’t any big shakes at the minute, but I def think there will be lots of goals In that game as Norwich will only attack rather than sit back

    1. Taffer
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Norwich defensive stats are much improved tho, and Man Utd struggle to break down teams who sit deep particularly without McTominay to keep the ball moving in midfield.

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Could be gold, I'm going Rashford

    3. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 26 days ago

      Norwich just aren’t conceding heaps of goals away - all out attack? - doubt it. Just 4 conceded in last 4 away games

  30. Podorsky
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 months, 26 days ago

    Pope to
    1. Ryan
    2. Foster
    3. Flappyhandsky

    1. Ason Willa
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 26 days ago

      I went 3, but will counter the bad fixtures with McCarthy
