Why I’m looking at Man City amid Double Gameweek 24 planning

With the Double Gameweek for Liverpool and West Ham in Gameweek 24, much of the transfer activity and attention has been focused on Liverpool assets but two more teams certainly warrant discussion – Southampton and Manchester City.

I will start by talking about the Saints first. No team has racked up more points (13) over the last five Gameweeks with four wins and a draw (Liverpool played only four matches). They are joint-top of the form table along with Watford, scoring nine goals and conceding just three.

The 2-1 victory against Leicester last Gameweek epitomised their resurgence after a 9-0 hammering in the reverse fixture. They restricted the most prolific striker in the league to zero shots in the box (SiB), an impressive feat. This warranted a deeper look into their defensive and offensive numbers over the last five Gameweeks – which was also the focus of a recent Members Article.

Furthermore, only Manchester City (15), Watford (11), Manchester United (10) have scored more goals than the Saints’ nine over the aforementioned period. As the table shows, they are ranked fifth for SiB (43) which is again impressive considering the opposition they have faced. They are also fourth for big chances (13), trailing only Liverpool, Man. Utd (both 14) and Manchester City (17).

Screenshot from the FFScout Members Area: Gameweeks 18 to 22

The Saints are second only to Liverpool in terms of fixtures all the way up to Gameweek 30. I have chosen that as the cutoff point as Gameweek 31 is likely to be the big blank Gameweek due to FA Cup fixtures and I will likely use my Free Hit chip then and Wildcard in Gameweek 32.

I’ve not owned Danny Ings (£6.8m) at any point this season due to his past injury record, but after his recent performance against Leicester, I think he’s almost ‘essential’, if I’m allowed to use that word. No forward has scored more goals (five), taken more SiB (19) or landed more shots on target (SoT) (11) than the Englishman over the last five Gameweeks.

Manchester City’s attacking numbers need no elaboration so I will instead talk about the form midfielder in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) over the last five Gameweeks – Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m).

No midfielder has racked up more FPL points (37) over this period and the Algerian is also top for shots (20), SiB (15) and SoT (seven). Only Anthony Martial (£7.9m) (four) has scored more goals than his three.

As with any Manchester City asset, rotation is always a concern but he has now started each of the last five league matches and the latest comments from Pep Guardiola are encouraging:

“You see his legs it is impossible to be injured because he has no muscles. The final third he has something special, always I have the feeling he can score a goal.” – Pep Guardiola

After a dive into these numbers, I have made three transfers for my team for a -4. Alex McCarthy (£4.3m), Mahrez and Ings have all come in.

Nick Pope (£4.6m), Martial and Neal Maupay (£5.9m) have made way. I am aware that Maupay has a great fixture run but Ings passes both the eye and stats test with flying colours so I decided to make the move.

The captaincy is currently on De Bruyne but given his low ownership (6.6%), a punt on Mahrez appeals. Diego Rico (£4.4m) is next on the chopping block after losing his spot in the Bournemouth starting line-up with Brandon Williams (£4.0m) likely to come in the week after.

Thanks for reading and good luck in Gameweek 23.

      Ha, my dilemma, might go A based on opposition

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Thanks- yes bit of dilemma- I brought Aguero in for 2 weeks so might just go with him before he goes for Ings so can afford Mané or Robertson /VVD

    4. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      B if you think he'll start.

      1. dunas_dog
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        I think being home game he will with Sterling and Bernardo coming back in- but accept it is a calculated risk!

  4. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Which scores more next two GW:

    A) Snodgrass (EVE, lei, LIV)
    B) Cantwell (BOU, tot)

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      B because it has Bournemouth in it

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      B

    3. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      B probably because Cantwell can be benched for a better player in 24.

  5. paulfantham
    • 9 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Got the exact money for this, watcha reckon:
    Tammy + Pope > Ings + Alison

    Would leave me with a front two of Vardy / Ings and a Pool triple up of Salah / Mané / Alison

    1. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Hmm. Cant decide is allison is a wasted pool spot or a safe dgw pick.

      Not sure I'd want him all season over robbo taa or vvd though.

    2. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      If your happy to cover your eyes every time trent crosses then sure

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Allison is a waste of Pool Spot. Taa Robbo so interesting to own

  6. EL tridente
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Maddison to Richarlison?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      oh go on then

    2. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Depends if you think leicester bubble has burst.

      1. toca
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Not sure it has... but maybe a bit of downsizing for the ones owning def+mid+Vardy maybe wise....

        1. EL tridente
          • 2 Years
          5 days, 12 hours ago

          Exactly my thought.. Have 3 Leicester players now and Maddison will be the easiest to transfer out

  7. The 12th Man
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Maupay plays Villa and Bournemouth next.

    Is Rashford > Maupay to fund Maddison > Mane in 24 a good idea?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Can work

    2. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I like it

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Yes from me

    4. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Reckon I'd keep rashford if I had him, but if you are set on mane then for next 2 maupay looks ok.

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

        I know that’s the dilemma. Rashford with double Pool defence or Double Liverpool attack without.

        1. how now brown cow
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          5 days, 12 hours ago

          The potential upside of having mane is probably higher than that of keeping rashford.

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

            It’s all those good fixtures after the double for Liverpool too.

            I’m going to WC around 28.

    5. JT11fc
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Im doing Maupay to Rash after Villa, but to fund Mane then definitely

    6. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Maupay is a short term punt. More than likely you'll be looking to upgrade him in a few weeks. I have him but I'm already planning exit routes.

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

        Yeh his form isn’t great is it?
        I like his fixtures more than Calvert Lewin and can’t go Deeney as I have Sarr already.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Yeah I've owned since 3 gameweeks and only got an assist so I'm hoping he can improve with fixtures. But if he fails next 2 (AVL, Bou) I'll be looking to sell him.

  8. Rock n Grohl
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Captain dilemma this week here?
    KDB
    Mahrez
    Vardy
    Richarlison

    Heavily chasing so leaning towards Mahrez or Richarlison?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Go Rich - Mahrez, despite form, is a big risk this GW with B.Silva and Sterling available

  9. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Template defence not looking so strong as it did past few weeks ago. Think it's time for Soyuncu, Rico, Kelly etc to go.

    Some fresh bargain & budget options emerging from Watford, Soton & maybe Arsenal. Williams could also be great value at 4.0m if he can get starts regularly.

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I don't want to disrupt the balance of the team though. Those guys are super cheap.

      Maybe Rico > Holgate/Stevens but that's it really.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Long term fixtures for Leicester still look good so might be worth keeping Soy on the bench till Ndidi is back.
        Selling Rico could be a better option to cover Soyuncu till then.

    2. zøphar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I'm confident Williams is first choice now, he's a super talent. Like I mentioned, Rico to williams next week is a great move

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        I'm very excited about him. They way he attacks and United defensive stats have been decent all season.
        There could be some double digit scores for him if United can start keeping clean sheets.

      2. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Rico to Williams next week is my planned transfer. This week is Kelly to Dunk. Brighton has nice fixtures before wc time.

    3. Jarvish Scott Talent
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I have all 3 of those wasters

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        You should start planning to drop atleast one of them.
        Williams and Soton def look particularly interesting.

    4. toca
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I dont know.... Rico maybe yes, but the other 2.... Kelly is still going to play a lot and Palace is really tight at the back and I would agree to let go of Pereira, Evans or Chilly but Soy if you got him at 4.5/4.6 like the vast majority of us non-casuals?.... 🙂

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Yup Soy could be worth keeping specially for those who got him around 4.5-4.7
        But I think the other options look better than Rico/Kelly atm.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Assuming you have the template

          TAA, Soy, Lund, Rico, Kelly

          Why not do like Rico > SHU defense in GW 25? SHU have the best fixtures. A proven defense. And you double up on them as a calculated risk for a few weeks running with TAA, Lund, Egan,

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            I've got Dunk over Kelly.
            And I've also got Henderson. But tbh I wouldn't might taking a punt on triple SHU def from GW25 onwards.

            Soyuncu to Kola is tempting if Arsenal can keep up their defensive form. And I also quite like Williams if he is nailed.

            1. baps sniffer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              5 days, 11 hours ago

              Does Williams even has to be nailed for his price? As long as he either starts or stays on the bench, it is fine for me.

              1. Karan14
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                5 days, 11 hours ago

                He needs to start regularly otherwise I wouldn't want to waste a transfer to get him in. If he starts against Pool and puts in a good performance then he is pretty much nailed.

            2. Camzy
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              5 days, 11 hours ago

              Hmm with Henderson it's a bit less appealing I guess.

              Yeah Williams is also a nice option.

    5. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      I’m looking at Maitland-Niles,Williams,Stephens and Holgate to replace those in the coming weeks.

    6. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm looking at SHU defender and Kolasinac, might upgrade 4/5th defender or just drop Soyuncu and Periera

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        I'm also considering Soyuncu to Kola or Stevens (triple Shu def) or Rico to Williams.

  10. Barnes Owl
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    In two minds:

    A - Rashford -> Firmino

    B - Rashford -> DCL & Martial -> Salah -4

    Current team:

    Hend/Button
    TAA/Soy/Lund/Williams/Kelly
    Mane/Martial/Maddison/KDB/Dend
    Rash/Vardy/Maupay

    Cheers

    1. sovietrockettes
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      B, Salah is essential IMO

      1. toca
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        I dont know.... A hit + losing Rash & Martial with Burnley at home..... I mean it really could go either way - fantastic move or absolutely terrible one. Personally I would keep at least one ManU asset.

  11. Louis Van Gaalstones
    • 5 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Benching headache this week:

    A. Grealish
    B. Martial
    C. Maddison

    1. Louis Van Gaalstones
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Currently on Martial as I have Rashford

    2. Rock n Grohl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Yeah I'd probably go with that as well in that scenario.

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Yeah B. I am close to benching Rashford over Cantwell (!) but being on pens sways it...

    4. toca
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Tough one. I have Martial/Madds/Cantwell for 2 spots.

  12. Catastrophe
    • 9 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    1 FT, 1.1 ITB. Help greatly appreciated!

    Ryan
    TAA, Holgate, Lundstram
    Salah, Mane, KDB, Cantwell
    Vardy, Ings, Rashford

    (Woodman, Traore, Kelly, Simpson)

    A) Traore -> Sarr (bench Cantwell)
    B) Traore -> Grealish (start Cantwell)
    C) Something Else
    D) Save FT

    Currently on A.

    Cheers!

  13. MoManeTaa

    Who wud you prioritize getting for next 5-7 GWs?

    A) Son
    B) Rashford

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      B

      1. MoManeTaa
        • 2 Years

        Thanks mate

    2. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Probably B, although fancy Son to do well. I think most will be choosing between either Son or Rashford, Rashford the safer bet for now...

    3. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      The better player, from the better team, that's on pens and free kicks. Easy decision

    4. toca
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Tight call, maybe not the best fixtures for ManU for that period...

  14. fridge
    • 8 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    Hi all, had a bad one last week

    Ramsdale
    TAA. Soyuncu. Lundstram (Aurier, Kelly)
    Salah. KDB. Maddison. Martial. Traore
    Vardy. Ings (Greenwood)

    A) Aurier, Soyuncu, Martial > Cathcart, Williams, Mane (-4)
    B) Aurier, Ramsdale > Robbo, Ryan
    C) something else?

    1. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Maddison/Martial>>Cantwell or CHO/Mane maybe?

      1. fridge
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Actually for a -4 I could do Maddison, Martial, Aurier > Mane, Grealish, Holgate...

    2. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      A

  15. GloryManUnited
    • 1 Year
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    How do we feel about Tanganga from Spurs?

    Glowing reviews from MOU and he really did play a very solid game against Sadio passing the eye test. They both as 4th/5th defenders seem like great value if they both can nail down a spot.
    Enables funds elsewhere as well.

    Thoughts?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Prefer Williams at Man U if looking for a 4.0 def. Should play the easier Home games which is exactly what you'd want.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Naw. He's not gonna play enough. Williams far better anyway at bargain basement price.

      1. GloryManUnited
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 12 hours ago

        Just a thought. Williams is already my 5th defender but the thought of Robbo/TAA/LaPorte/Tanganga/Williams sounds pretty enticing.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          No thanks. Way too much in defense.

          I'd go like TAA, Lundstram, Soy, Williams, Stephens first probably.

          1. GloryManUnited
            • 1 Year
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            Soy train has sailed for me. Leicester flare has worn off and he's returned once in his last 5. Him and Madd are at last chance saloon for me.

    3. HashAttack
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Williams looks like he either play or he doesn't - Tanga could be coming on as a sub and getting you 1 pointers

      1. GloryManUnited
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Highly unlikely he'd be subbing late as that's rare for defenders. Even if he did, he would be my 5th defender at that point.

        Not quite sure about the Williams part--every player either plays or doesn't?

        1. HashAttack
          • 2 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          I meant that Williams seems to start and play matches or not come on at all

  16. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    5 days, 12 hours ago

    If im chasing someone who has TAA Robbo and Mane and i have TAA Salah, would you cover with Robbo, or go for a differential in Firmino? It’s essentially Firmino vs Robertson. Tbh i can see Liverpool conceded in one game. Cannot afford Mane

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Go Firmino if that is your hunch

    2. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 12 hours ago

      Do it

  17. Make Arrows Green Again

    Confirmed that Gazzaniga and Son both start tonight.

    Don't know if anyone cares about Ponferradina's game against Malaga but I'm leaving this here anyway.

    1. toca
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      LOL, quite an important one btw!! Malaga is struggling to stay up on LaLiga2 and club is in complete shambles after 10 years of UAE ownership....

      1. Make Arrows Green Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Yeah it's a shame. They're my Spanish team and always look out for them.

  18. SomeoneKnows

    Which should be prioritized in shipping out, Rico or Kelly? In other words, which is less likely to see game time?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Rico. Bournemouth are a worse team and he got dropped.

      1. Reiger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Exactly

  19. Mr. Wizard
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    2FT, nothing pressing:
    Hendo -> Ryan?
    Why? Fixtures over next few weeks

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Prefer Henderson's fixtures and defense

      1. Mr. Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Next week it’s Ars then City... whilst Brighton have Villa Bournemouth?

        1. Mr. Wizard
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Even for next few weeks with nothing pressing, can always bring back Hendo?

          1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
            • 6 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            If you want to spend 2FTs on gk position, then its fine.

        2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          And after that?

          Doubt Ryan will keep any CS in any game, string of 2-3pts just like last 8-10 games

    2. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Indeed - 7 weeks of pretty good fixtures

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      You're kidding right? Look at SHU fixtures from GW 25 onwards! Waste of a transfer. Prepare for the double GW. If you don't have triple Pool, figure out how you will. If you have them already setup your team for the longer term. There is a lot to do now. No one I've seen has a WC perfect team with 2 FTs.

      1. Mr. Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Thanks for the feedback. So here is my team, I’m currently ranked 546 overall: what would you suggest then? Thanks.

        1.9ITB, 2FT
        Hendo
        TAA Soy Lundy Kelly Reid
        Salah Mane KDB Traore Cantwell
        Vardy Tammy Ings

        Note: ideally keeping cash in case I fancy Tammy->Rashford

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Reid > Williams for next week.

          1. Mr. Wizard
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            Newcastle away to Everton? Don’t fancy that

            1. Mr. Wizard
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              Home to Chelsea*

              • 9 Years
              5 days, 11 hours ago

              Williams. The 4.0m MUN defender setting up for next week's BUR.

              1. Camzy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                5 days, 11 hours ago

                And then next week you can do Traore > Grealish or Tammy > Rashford.

                1. GloryManUnited
                  • 1 Year
                  5 days, 11 hours ago

                  Love all these moves. Great advice.

                  Also the fact you're 546 in the world and don't know who Williams is makes me want to puke.

                  1. Mr. Wizard
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    Sorry I misread as Willems... lol

                  5 days, 11 hours ago

                  Already plotting Tammy > Rash and did Grealish > Traore to make those funds

                  Another 'cheers' for your series of advice here.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 days, 11 hours ago

            What about Soy>Dunk?

      2. Mr. Wizard
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        Also, already have Lundstram cover, so I still think Ryan could be a decent option?

  20. MoManeTaa
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Is she ready for the DGW??

    McCarthy
    TAA BWilliams Soy
    KDB Mane Salah (C) Grealish
    Vardy Rashford Ings

    - Lund CTaylor Donker

  21. Strchld
    • 3 Years

    There is a change Ryan rising tonight.

    Do Pipe > Ryan now or wait pressers?

    1. Syd.
      • 10 Years

      You could always smoke it

  22. Zenith UK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    5 days, 11 hours ago

    Hey everyone, keep debating a wildcard (to stop me from being priced out next week). Can I get some honest thoughts/opinions please?

    McCarthy*, Button
    Trent, Robbo*, Digne, Lund, Williams*
    Mane, KDB, Richar*, Cantwell, Dendo*
    Vardy, Rash, Ings*

    I have the EXACT funds for this team.
    I was tempted to switch Cantwell to Douglas Luiz and upgrade Button to Martin

    * = players in
    Players out: Henderson, Soy, Kelly, Grealish, Maddison, DCL

    1. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Nice team, love the new defence. Well done!

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      I'm not sure getting those players on WC is really worth it. How is current team looking?

      1. GloryManUnited
        • 1 Year
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        It's laid out right in front of you

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Thats his WC team

        2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          5 days, 11 hours ago

          Didnt noticed players out section, WC not worth it. Current team looks better than WC team

    3. baps sniffer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Henderson and DCL out are downgrades. Gettinh Richa instead of him isn't worth it. For short term perhaps, but you will regret it later imho.

    4. rmt this, rmt that so i sai…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Robbo, Rich, Ings are defo worth bringing in

  23. Firminoooo

    Who to captain? Please help.

    A) Aguero
    B) Sergio
    C) Kun

    1. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Love this! There is only one option from here on out.

      Tried telling everyone over and over leading up this past GW. I think I posted on here 5 times about an upcoming hatty!

  24. Dannywaz
    • 1 Year
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    It'll be fine going without kdb for a few weeks don't care what people say shef away spurs away west ham home Leicester away blank mane and salah easily outscore him over this period

    1. Wirbelwind
      • 2 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      If you got him at 9.5, that's quite some TV hit you're taking

    2. GloryManUnited
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      Hahahahahahahahahahahaha tell us more

    3. Dannywaz
      • 1 Year
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      So both mane and salah don't outscore him can always get back guys I got at 10.2

    4. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      I am trying to convince myself this, but i only bought him a couple of weeks ago so don't have much value to lose...

  25. Wirbelwind
    • 2 Years
    5 days, 11 hours ago

    thinking of the following, over 2 GW:

    A) Abraham, Alli, Soyboy -> Ings, Sarr, Robertson (double LIV def with TAA)
    B) Abraham, Alli, Soyboy -> Ings, Grealish, Robertson
    C) Abraham, Alli, Jiminez -> Ings, Mane, Greenwood (mane salah double up)

    C leaves me with more to clean up / value in Jimmy lost, but more risk/reward perhaps.

    1. Reiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      5 days, 11 hours ago

      A for me. Good move getting those 3 underperformers out of there

      1. Wirbelwind
        • 2 Years
        5 days, 11 hours ago

        thanks. Kind of considering

        Abraham, Alli, Kelly -> Ings, Sarr, Robertson

        too. So I don't always have to play one of kelly/Rico

    2. GloryManUnited

    3. GloryManUnited

      My exact moves as well. Did the first this week and will do the second next

  29. Joey Barton and Friends
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years

    Is Robbo really worth the .6 Million more than VDV? Only 6 points separates them

    Tomori > Robbo

    1. Joey Barton and Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A and C if you can although Tammy is ticking along again

      1. Mork calling Orson

        Should have worded that much better - essentially asking for opinions on best mid for 7.3m or less, intend to do all 3 of the above
