Watford’s cut-price FPL attacking assets impress as budget defence holds strong

Bournemouth 0-3 Watford

  • Goals: Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m), Troy Deeney (£6.2m), Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m)
  • Assists: Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m), Doucoure, Andre Gray (£5.6m)
  • Bonus: Doucoure x3, Deeney x2, Adam Masina (£4.3m), Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) x1

Two teams that started Gameweek 22 in the relegation zone and one point apart met at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday, with Watford running out comfortable 3-0 winners.

There is a stark contrast between the two clubs at present.

The Hornets are revitalised under Nigel Pearson, losing just one of the six matches that he has overseen (away to Liverpool), and several of their players appeal from a Fantasy Premier League perspective.

Bournemouth, on the other hand, are in a real rut and even some favourable fixtures in the next five Gameweeks won’t be enough for many FPL bosses to revisit the Cherries.

Eddie Howe’s side had begun fairly brightly against their visitors this weekend, with Dominic Solanke (£5.2m) almost pouncing on a mishit Adam Smith (£4.3m) shot and Harry Wilson (£5.9m) forcing Ben Foster (£4.9m) into a flying save with one of his trademark free-kicks.

That turned out to be Bournemouth’s only attempt on target in the entire match and, once Watford had broken the deadlock five minutes before the interval, the hosts’ self-belief visibly ebbed away.

Howe acknowledged that confidence was at a low after full-time, saying:

The first goal going in damaged us mentally and we didn’t recover. Confidence is such an important thing to any team and it just felt it was lacking from that goal onwards, it seemed to dent us.

It’s certainly not what we wanted and the performance wasn’t what we wanted either.

We can only regroup, learn from what we’ve delivered, analyse the game properly and improve. We need to rediscover our belief in the team. For me, that’s the only thing missing because we’ve got good players.

Bournemouth’s early pressure was more of a mild breeze than a full-blown storm but once Watford had comfortably seen off the Cherries’ handful of first-half forays into their final third, they began to kick on.

The Hornets are not just well-structured at the back, they are oozing confidence further forward.

The in-form Ismaila Sarr (£6.2m) had already fired a warning shot across the Bournemouth bows early on when breaking clear of Nathan Ake (£4.8m) and fizzing the ball wide, and it was the Senegal international who teed up Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m) for Watford’s opening goal in the 41st minute.

While that attacking return owed a debt to Mark Travers‘ (£4.2m) awful pass out, Sarr was a threat all match and could have had added to his assist.

The Senegalese winger had a shot deflected over on 50 minutes and then spurned a glorious chance soon after, miscuing a volleyed effort from six yards after a weak headed clearance.

He was heavily involved in Watford’s second goal, too, with his run and attempted cross for Doucoure falling kindly for Troy Deeney (£6.2m) to hammer home just after the hour-mark.

Sarr now has five attacking returns to his name in as many Gameweeks, a total that only Manchester City pair Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) and Riyad Mahrez (£8.7m) can trump among FPL midfielders.

He’s not the only appealing option in this Watford side.

Deeney has four goals to his name since Pearson took charge, while Doucoure has banked four attacking returns in the last three Gameweeks.

Doucoure has flirted with Fantasy managers since his arrival in the Premier League (at least ten attacking returns in each of the last two seasons) and he is certainly thriving in an advanced number ten role, looking more comfortable than he did when stationed further back under Javi Gracia and Quique Sanchez Flores.

Pearson revealed afterwards that Doucoure has been playing through the pain barrier:

He’s not trained this week, he had a fitness test on Saturday, so he’s been playing with discomfort for a while and it was touch and go whether he played.

But he’s a very resilient lad and his demeanour’s been very positive. He was desperate to play, but he’s only played today because of conversations that we, as coaching staff, had had with the medical staff to make sure we understand what the risks are.

Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m) was the only one of Watford’s front four to blank on Sunday but he has been chipping in with goals and assists of late too and could have had further returns this weekend, forcing Travers into a save at his near post early on and slicing wide when the Hornets broke at pace midway through the second half.

Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m) rounded off the scoring in stoppage time, volleying in the rebound after fellow substitute Andre Gray (£5.6m) had been denied.

At the back, Foster collected his fourth clean sheet in seven Gameweeks but was scarcely troubled in the away goal.

Bournemouth have scored a miserable seven goals in 15 league matches and there will seldom be easier shut-outs than this but Pearson deserves credit for his work with the Hornets, with hitherto unconvincing options such as Adrian Mariappa (£4.2m) and Adam Masina (£4.3m) solid at full-back on Sunday.

Those two players picked up bonus points to go with their clean sheets, although the likes of Kiko Femenia (£4.2m) and Daryl Janmaat (£4.1m) are still to return from injury and it remains to be seen who Pearson favours when all of his defensive options are available.

Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) is due back from suspension at centre-half in Gameweek 23, meanwhile, with Craig Cathcart (£4.3m) looking about as nailed an option among those playing in front of Foster in the medium-term.

Reflecting on the game, Pearson said:

There have been times when we’ve played some really good football and won games and then today was an example of having to show quite a bit of resilience and game understanding, but also using our quality when we could and I thought our counter-attacking situations were really good.

We created a lot of chances, we defended set plays with an incredible desire to keep the ball out of the net, and we needed to.

It’s a great result for us, but we have to keep our focus from here on in.

As for the Cherries, they sit second-top of our Season Ticker over the next five Gameweeks – but who would back their FPL assets at present?

As well as scoring at a rate of 0.47 goals per match over the last 15 Gameweeks, Howe’s troops have kept one clean sheet in 11 league fixtures.

Their most-owned FPL asset, Diego Rico (£4.4m) was dropped to the bench for this one, while goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m) missed out through injury.

Howe at least had the consolation of welcoming Ake and Smith back from recent lay-offs and afterwards said that Ramsdale’s issue wasn’t too serious:

He went to catch a ball yesterday in training and just felt something. I don’t think it’s serious, I think it is very minor but it was enough to see him miss today.

Callum Wilson‘s (£7.4m) own FPL form mirrors his team’s and he is without an attacking return since Gameweek 7, with the mid-price FPL forward having few chances to get on the scoresheet this weekend.

The upcoming fixtures might be better than Watford’s (the Hornets are towards the bottom of our Season Ticker in the medium-term) but Bournemouth’s horrendous form is surely more of a factor at present.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Travers; Smith, Francis, S. Cook, Ake; Gosling (L. Cook 59′), Lerma (Billing 59′); H. Wilson (Surridge 75′), Fraser; Solanke, C. Wilson.

Watford XI (4-2-3-1): Foster; Mariappa, Dawson, Cathcart, Masina; Chalobah, Capoue; Sarr (Pereyra 83′), Doucoure (Quina 86′), Deulofeu (Gray 90′); Deeney.

    Can’t decide wether to lose Vardy or Rashford for Ings 🙁 thoughts? With the Salah/Mane captain dilemma i think ill go TAA and Robbo.

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      If in doubt, delay the move. Get Ings as 3rd forward?

      1. Your Man With The Hair
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Why not kill two birds with one stone, get in Firmino?

      2. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Im worried Ings will haul against Wolves

    2. Zlatanzo
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Depends on your approach, keep Vardy if you want to be safe and vise versa

    3. Daniel Son
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Vardy

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Vardy > Ings?

        1. Daniel Son
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Im in a similar position but i'm getting all 3. If forced, Vardy to ings over Rash

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

      I am probably going to lose Vardy for Firmino, time to take some risks.

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        What rank are you?

    5. OldBenKenobi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Shouldn’t you be keeping both and getting Ings as a 3rd striker?

      1. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Poor TV 104.9 makes it difficult

    6. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Neither.

  2. Monkey Hanger
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Almost 15k Ryan has given to the Oz bush fire fund, after 58 saves at the weekend.

    Good on him.

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Fair play to him. Neil Robertson giving £100 for every century he makes at the Masters this week. Every little helps

    2. Zlatanzo
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Half a days wages

      1. Monkey Hanger
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Don't think he will be on 200k a week. Half a weeks wages maybe. Either way, have you donated half a day's wages?

        1. Zlatanzo
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I am an Aussie, indeed I have.

          1. Monkey Hanger
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 17 days ago

            Then you should be pleased for every penny given.

            1. Zlatanzo
              4 months, 17 days ago

              Never said I wasn't pleased mate

      2. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Doesnt matter how much, £15,000 is a substantial amount of money and fair play to him. He didnt have to donate anything.

        1. Zlatanzo
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Wasn't criticising him just pointing it out... agreed good on him

    3. Daniel Son
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      How much have the FA donated? I'd be surprised if it was more than that.

  3. anish10
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Chances of Jesus starting the next game?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year

      *head explodes*

    2. Zlatanzo
      4 months, 17 days ago

      There are no such thing as 'chances' with Pep

  4. EL tridente
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Maddison to Richarlison?

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      a move waiting to happen for me, last chance for Maddison...

    2. Your Man With The Hair
      • 9 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Sound move

    3. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      For fun, yes

    4. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Richarlison has better form but I like having both

    5. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Or Dilva

  5. Zlatanzo
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Repost... would you rather drop Tammy or Jimi to make way for Ings?

    1. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I did Tammy > Ings

    2. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Drop Jim

      1. Zlatanzo
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Jimi known to be more fixture proof though... Why Jim?

        1. Tcheco
          • 2 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          I don't like either to be honest. Ship them both

    3. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Same question. Wish I could wait another week because both have decent fixtures, although both are away.

      Leaning toward Tammy, myself, but more so to bank some funds for Pool dgw24.

  6. Bavarian
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Predictions for Southampton vs Wolves...
    Hope it will be a high scoring game !!!!

  7. Eriksen Maestro

    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Hi lads pick one for GW23-25:

    A) Haller ( Everton home, DGW away Leicester and away Liverpool, Brighton home).

    B) Ings ( Home Wolves, away to Palace, away to Liverpool.

    1. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Easy B

      1. Eriksen Maestro
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Really? Ings won’t score every game haha

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Well, you're not wrong, but scoring in 13 of 22 games is a decent start. Still go with Ings.

    2. Soto Ayam
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Currently, I would always recommend not picking the west ham players , so B

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Never a West ham attacker or midfielder

  8. lilmessipran
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Who is the best option ( max 4.8) to replace Rico with?

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Probably Holgate.

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

        Holgate is going to be benched soon, Mina coming back .

        1. Reiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Holgate has played every minute of the past 13 GWs, while Mina has been in and out. Holgate is nailed.

        2. tisza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Mina started 3 out of last 5 and benched for the other 2?

      2. lilmessipran
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Is holgate ahead of Keane in the pecking order with Mina coming back?

        1. Reiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

              Also hadn't seen, good info, thanks! I do think Holgate is their best CB from what I've seen although I don't rate Keane and Mina.

    2. Eriksen Maestro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Dunk

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Or Dunk for good fixtures, more attacking. Depends on your team imo.

      Dunk

    6. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Newcastle, Watford, Sheffield United have a few.

    7. Crystal Alice

      I’d gamble on Bernardo over Dunk if going for Brighton def

      The age profile of players has taken a big stretch it seems in the last few years with improved S&C, nutrition, lifestyle. Zlatan still scoring goals in Series A at 38. Some players being seen as experienced rather than past it!

    Anyone getting West Ham fixtures for next 3 fixtures and DGW?

    1. Eriksen Maestro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Players*

    2. Soto Ayam

      No

  10. jdp219
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Figured he'd dry up as soon as I got him, but can't do without Ings anymore.

    So, who loses his spot in my squad -- Tammy or Jimenez?

    Same value in each for me.
    Jimi - goals and assists split evenly home/away
    Tammy - 8 of 13 goals away; 3 of 4 assists away

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Prefer Abraham's next few fixtures although both aren't great, I've already done Jim > Ings this week.

  11. Jimjam
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    If Fabianski is out, Ryan, Foster or McCarthy in?

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Ryan.

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Think I'm going McCarthy (from Pope)

  12. fakelund

    Mane and TAA owner, worth getting rid of KDB in order to get Salah for the double, or will Rashford to Firmino/Doherty to Robertson suffice?

    1. DAZZ
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Own Vardy? Consider Vardy > Firmino? I would much rather lose Vardy ahead of Rashford and KDB. Look at Rashfords fixtures after LFC

        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah got Vardy too

    2. Zlatanzo
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Plan B sounds better

    3. Soto Ayam
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Doh to robbo

    4. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm doing Rashford to Firmino. A Mane Salah double up would rip up the rest of my team

    5. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Robertson. Or Gomez?

  13. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Which moves?
    A) Tammy+Maddison to Firmino+Pérez
    B) Maddison+Willems to Dendoncker+TAA (Dendo on bench)

    Already have Salah+Mane

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      B, as you'll want TAA regardless of the DGW

  14. DAZZ

    Best captaincy options this week? Thinking Salah personally although KDB is a very good option to say the least

    1. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I'm going Vardy although I capped Jimenez last week so don't listen to me.

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      It's on Salah for now, with KdB VC. Could see him tearing Utd to shreds, albeit he looked less electric on Sat than he did against SHU

    3. farmerfat
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Salah has never scored against United, I think.

    4. Zlatanzo
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Think United game will be low scoring, KDB or maybe Ings for a punt

    5. Rains of Castamere
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Got 2FT and tempted by Mahrez (C)

  15. claretparrot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Already tripled up on 'pool (Mo, Trent, Virgil) and have 2 FTs.

    Traoré & Pope >>> Grealish & McCarthy?

    Will hurt as did Grealish > Traoré two weeks ago!

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Something I said? Haha

  16. Rains of Castamere
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Need to ship Fabianksi out and eyeing up Ryan but I have Webster. Is double Brighton defence too much? Other defenders: TAA, Lundstram, Soyoncu, Kelly.

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      If you can upgrade Kelly to someone like Holgate, then Ryan is fine and bench Webster when the others have better fixtures

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      I have double and not sure. Have the same defence but Dunk over Webster. More about how often you'll play Webster.

    3. Rains of Castamere
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Cheers both.

  17. Crystal Alice
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 17 days ago

    A. Keep Aguero, Soy > Gomez
    B. Aguero, Soy > Robbo and whoever

    Have TAA Mane

    1. Rains of Castamere
      • 5 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Keep Aguero this week, then I'd look to let go for 24 and fund Salah.

    2. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Have you only got 1 FT? If so I'd hold a reassess next week

  18. Shark Team
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    If Piatek costs 8.5 or under he will be considerable

    1. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Where is he going?

      1. Shark Team
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Spurs

  19. Bavarian
    • 2 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Best replacement for Ramsdale?
    A-Foster
    B-Ryan
    C-Henderson
    D-McCarthy

    1. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      McCarthy too good to pass on at 4.3

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 17 days ago

        That's my feeling

    2. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Cheers both

  20. Stormbringer22
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Dropped from 380K overall to 430K this week. Would you say it is time to get "aggressive" and look to move away from the template a bit? Have all chips still available and my Wildcard is intact.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Would probably wait until the DGW is over. Obviously selling one of Vardy, KDB etc can go either way.

  21. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    4 months, 17 days ago

    I wish Sheff Utd had a nailed 90 mins per week striker.

  22. Monkey Hanger
    • 6 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Jose whinging about Eriksen today.

    Who next?

    Will he ever accept some responsibility himself?

    1. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      He will never change, only when he's winning does he stop blaming

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      He's not blameless of course but Eriksen has been terrible and they should've lowered their demands for him in the summer when he made it clear he wanted to leave and wouldn't sign a new deal.

      1. Monkey Hanger
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Is it Ndombele's fault he keeps getting injured?

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          4 months, 17 days ago

          That's a completely different comment that he made lol, I didn't say it was!

          1. Monkey Hanger
            • 6 Years
            4 months, 17 days ago

            OK. But it is all part of Jose laying blame on his own players, when perhaps he should be looking closer to home.

    3. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Eriksen needs to give more while he's there, a class footballer. Clearly he wants to go but should be playing better until then.

      As for Mourinho whinging, does the cat drink milk 😉

      1. Monkey Hanger
        • 6 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        I agree, but Erilsen was not performing for Poch. Jose knew what he was inheriting.

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Eriksen's attitude needs to change though. Though it's hard not to blame Mourinho for anything!

  23. BrutalLogiC
    • 4 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Rash and Martial to 6m forward (Maupay) and Salah?

    1. claretparrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Can see the logic but it's the kind of move that could really come back and bite

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      You'll want them back for Burnley.

      1. BrutalLogiC
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        It's for 2 weeks and then reassess.

  24. Cheesyzoot
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Start Rico or Lundstram this week?

    1. BrutalLogiC
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Lund for me and it's not even close!

      1. Bavarian
        • 2 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        This

      2. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 17 days ago

        +1

    2. Tcheco
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Bournemouth are horrible so will go with Lundstram. Arsenal are still a fragile mess so could see Lund get a clean sheet or possibly an attacking return

    3. Cheesyzoot
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Nice and decisive opinion here, cheers guys

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 10 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        Howe might bench him anyway.

  25. GreennRed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Fernandes to dilute Son's returns?

    1. GreennRed
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Wrong fella!

      1. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        4 months, 17 days ago

        I was just about to say, he should help if anything.

        1. GreennRed
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          4 months, 17 days ago

          Cheers. Confusing him with Fernandes who United are after. Looks a great prospect.

  26. davies
    • 5 Years
    4 months, 17 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Rashford McCarthy
    B) Martial Henderson + 0.8

    1. Holmes
      • 6 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      A

  27. Legohair

    Jimenez to Ings now good move to funds KDB->MANE GW24?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Beats losing KDB this week. Won't be fun watching City soon.

    2. Bavarian
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      why losing KDB?

    3. Legohair
      • 4 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      Why not? Mane have dgw and great fixtures soon. I could triple pool with robbo instead of mane, that sound better?

      1. Legohair
        • 4 Years
        4 months, 17 days ago

        I have salah and taa already

  29. Lukakuna

    Is selling Rashford for a Pool triple up justifiable with his recent good form?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      4 months, 17 days ago

      They do get 3 games to his 2 if this week.

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years

      Yes
