Potential replacements for Vardy and Mané after Double Gameweek injuries

Once upon a time, Double Gameweeks lived up to expectation with something for everyone. Not anymore.

I know we’re only at the half-way stage but, up until now, this latest one has been one of the worst in living memory.

My joint-highest scorer, Diego Rico (£4.2m) was lost on the bench and on the pitch I had six players that mustered a solitary point each. It’s been a spectacular fail to date.

To rub insult to injury, I was going to sell Todd Cantwell (£5.0m) for Mark Noble (£5.0m), but Marcus Rashford’s (£9.0m) injury only encouraged me to start Mason Greenwood (£4.4m) which was a risk too far.

Weeks of planning went out the window and it just became all the more farcical and unfortunate after seeing Jamie Vardy (£9.9m) and Sadio Mané (£12.5m) get injured in the space of 24 hours.

In many ways millions of FPL managers have had a dire Double Gameweek and my Liverpool players still have another game to play. But realistically, only a captain Mohamed Salah (£12.4m) hat-trick assisted solely by Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.6m) can bring about a U-turn. I can live in hope for now.

Vardy Replacement

 1

Vardy’s injury in some ways is just the excuse I needed to sell him. With that said, early reports indicate that he could be back as early as next week. He may have scored 17 goals this season, but should I really persevere with a player that has only scored one goal since Gameweek 16 and has registered eight points in his last four starts? Probably not.

I think it may finally be time board the Danny Ings (£7.0m) bandwagon. The Southampton man has only scored 24 fewer points than Vardy this season, despite playing almost 300 fewer minutes.

Of course, I’m probably two months late to the party and would have to pay a premium price for him but he seems to be one of a small number of fit strikers that has been scoring regularly throughout the campaign.

Ings’ fixtures aren’t bad either. After a visit to his former club, Liverpool, he has a generous run of games until Gameweek 30. With him now in the race to get a trip to Euro 2020 with England, there’s enough incentive for him to carry on scoring goals.

Mané Replacement?

Mane injury latest as Firmino claims Double Gameweek advantage

It may be too premature to speculate, but if the Mané does have a serious injury then I may have to sell him. Of course, for many other FPL managers he is a season-keeper with a lot of tied in value and they may have the patience to keep him for a game or two if he doesn’t play. But I don’t have that sort of will power at hand, especially when I’m also dealing with an injured Vardy and a range of out of form or rotation risk players.

A replacement for Mane will require more thought and consideration when we remember the impact he has had this season.

Put simply, there isn’t really anyone else I could sell him for in a straight-swap.

At a push, I could say Raheem Sterling (£11.7m) but he is lacking in form, with no Fantasy returns since Gameweek 19. However, he has received the fourth-most number of passes (96) in the final third in the last four Gameweeks so seems to be getting the right areas, just without the reward.

But then you have a player like Willian (£7.2m) that has more touches (163) and passes received (122) in the final period than any other player over the same duration but it’s only amounted to 12 aggregate points.

Had it not been for his difficult upcoming fixtures, I may have also considered Son Heung-min (£9.9m). Since the turn of the year, among midfielders, he’s had the second-highest number of goal attempts (14). With Harry Kane (£10.8m) injured for the long-term Tottenham will rely on him even more. I genuinely hope that I don’t have to sell Mané, but if I do, the options look bleak.

Future Planning

I’m probably in a small group of FPL managers that will have two free transfers at hand after Double Gameweek 24 comes to an end. I’m in this position as I spent one free transfer on Brandon Williams (£4.1m) and opted not to buy any West Ham players.

I’ve not seen a green arrow in a long time and whilst knee jerk decisions are tempting during this time of Fantasy Football turbulence, I need to keep a level head, just as Lateriser stressed on Saturday, although I’d still like to carry out some calculated risks.

Doubling up on Sheffield United’s defence could be a viable option when considering Dean Henderson’s (£5.0m) form and their upcoming run of games. I also need to stop ignoring players like Jack Grealish (£6.6m) and Adama Traoré (£5.7m) who have been bargain midfield gems.

Apart from that, I hope Premier League clubs partake in some inspired real-life January transfers that can broaden FPL options and ultimately smash up the template team.

    I think I'm gonna roll a transfer this week as I have many GW26 / GW27 targets. What moves would you make to get the following in:

    GW26: Ings, Fleck & Sheff Utd def
    GW27: Jimenez

      I'm thinking the following for next week... thoughts?

      Maupay, Grealish & Kabasele > Ings, Fleck & O'Connell (-4)

    crazy there amount of WC being used on here from what amounts to a possible 1/2 games off for Vardy and Mane
    Potentially a few BGW and DGW to come, which FH and WC will be essential to navigate

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Nothing is essential. You can't know the state of the game that far ahead. Nothing is crazy and there are many ways to play the game, something this place seems to forget time and time again.

      1. ALI_G
        • 2 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        still in FA cup:
        Liverpool
        Leicester
        City
        Chelsea
        Wolves
        one of Spurs/Soton
        Sheff U

        going to be lots of blanks coming up

        1. PlumaPiedra
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Use FH and FTs and navigate as always if need be. Wouldn't wanna delay shaking up my team if it needed it for what might or might not be in the future.

        2. kamdaraji

          holllllllld wc

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

      I think it only looks like it. Those few with WC active are here and others not so much.

    3. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      If you owned players like Soyuncu, Martial, Mane, Vardy, Sterling, Tammy, Rashford then yes you would want to WC to get the dead wood out

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        Virtually all players that were considered template a few weeks ago or less - the early WCers who had all these better hope the current WC template doesn't disintegrate in the same manner (or worse) over the next few weeks!

        1. GuenDoozy
          25 days, 16 hours ago

          You never know, equal chance that one is the right one.

    4. GuenDoozy
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      TC used, FH for 31. The only thing left to navigate is the Bench Boost for the big DGW, which can be done with FTs or minimal hits if couple GWs in advance. Not a bad option to WC now to gain advantage.

      1. GuenDoozy
        25 days, 16 hours ago

        Its much crazier how many on here question how other people play the game like everyone who does X thing doesnt know what they're doing

          • 4 Years

          isn’t that what such as forum as this is about though ? questioning how to play the game ?

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Using your WC now or holding it for longer makes no difference.

      Many a time WC's get used and do not go according to plan no matter when they are activated.

  3. BDA Shadow

    I feel like people haven't talked enough this season about how poor Salah has been. His finishing is woeful. Really noticed it as an owner over the past couple of weeks, and again today he should have put the game to bed against Shrewsbury.

    1. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Was thinking the same compared to his stand out season 2 years ago where everything seemed to go in.

    2. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Terrible. Truly a shadow of what he was in 2017/18. He's not been the same since that injury from Ramos. I have no faith in captaining him anymore.

      1. Lallana
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 17 hours ago

        As a Liverpool fan I will state this. Salah and Sterling NEVER had godly finishing for the club. Klopp has played more defensively over the last couple of years but when Salah and Sterling put up incredible numbers for the club, it was more due to having so many chances a game too with a lot of space.

        1. Lallana
          • 6 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          He is still averaging 6.8 ppg with a heavier fixture list too.

        2. COK3Y5MURF - Unbelievable J…
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 17 hours ago

          Agree about Sterling, but Salah in his debut season was the best player in the league. The goal he scored vs Spurs, for example. He wasn't anywhere near as wasteful as he is now. And it's not just his finishing. His whole decision-making in the final third is poor. Predictable and selfish. And not the good kind of selfish like Son. He's reluctant to pass during the most obvious moments.

    3. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Yup, but he is great in defence whole season.

    4. Bushwhacker
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      Mane has been equally wasteful, shall we talk about that too? But then Salah then scores like he did against United and who the hell cares.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        That was weirdly defensive mate. And people absolutely still care when he's nowhere near top of the points charts and costs 12.5m.

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      3rd highest scoring midfielder behind Mane and KDB.

      Let's not forget that he also had his ankle issue earlier in the season.

      He is still a solid pick even at 12.5m.

      Had him from the start and still in my team going nowhere.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        24 days, 20 hours ago

        Ya there doesn't seem to be much good competition to ditch him for.

    6. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 5 hours ago

      The thing I’ve noticed most about Salah this season has been his poor vision/decision making at times.

      1. BDA Shadow
        • 5 Years
        24 days, 20 hours ago

        He tends to be quite greedy, especially when he's not been scoring. Head down mentality.

  4. venitol
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    Traore or Perez? On a WC atm

    1. Scout15
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 18 hours ago

      Traore imo

  5. Scout15
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 18 hours ago

    Tough choice here...

    Which would you choose?

    A) Salah + KDB + Dendo + Ings
    B) Salah + Mahrez + Perez + Jimenez
    C) Son + KDB + Dendo + Firmino
    D) Son + Mahrez + Grealish + Firmino

    1. Lallana
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      A

    2. Utopsis
      24 days, 19 hours ago

      A, but could you get Fleck instead of Dendo?

  6. Lallana
    • 6 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    Thoughts on these moves? -8. Don't want to wildcard yet...but want a reshuffle.

    Maupay>Martinelli
    Vardy>Aguero
    Maddison>Traore

    Then next week...

    Chilwell>Lundstram

    1. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Lundstram’s ship has sailed

      1. Ason Willa
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 9 hours ago

        Based on what exactly? If he has been dropped from the 1st team (instead of just rested), why didn't he play in the FA Cup this weekend?

    2. Bushwhacker
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      Martinelli now Auba is back? I’d wait on that.

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      25 days, 14 hours ago

      no way, the out going players will probably outscore the incoming players over the next gameweek or series of gameweeks

  7. Pep Roulette
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    With Vardy & Mane injured, Martial and United looking hopeless, would you do this for -8?

    Mane, Vardy, Kelly, Martial to Pepe, Aguero, Robbo, Fleck?

    1. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      No Martial has been getting chances despite United not playing well so he is still good value for his price unless they sign a striker and he is moved to a different position.

      Vardy is likely to be back for the weekend. Pepe isn't a great option at that price.

    2. PlumaPiedra
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      25 days, 17 hours ago

      Sounds like Vardy is fine and so is Martial so no. Just Mane to someone if he's out for a few games.

    3. Bushwhacker
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      Vardy may play the League Cup ; wouldn’t worry about him.

  10. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 2 Years
    25 days, 17 hours ago

    A) Grealish (tough fixture) + VVD (better goal threat)

    Or,

    B) Mahrez (rotation risk but differential) + Gomez (less attacking threat)

    So is Lundstram out of favor now?

    1. Drop the Dendoncker

      No, he's still in my team. I'll let you know if things change.

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years

        he's in mine too

    2. Lukakus Unit
      25 days, 16 hours ago

      I'm holding for now. He's been rotated through the busiest part of their season, but fixtures look nice until GW31.

      1. Boxwoods
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years

    3. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      If you are like me, you got bigger problems than Lundstram being fatigued

      But yeah, Besic may have snaked his starting role.

      Lundstram looking like an aimless player lately. In fairness, the competition has been good

    4. Hotdogs for Tea

        0%

  15. Lukakus Unit
    25 days, 16 hours ago

    After Villa-Leicester (providing no further injuries...):

    A. Mane -> Grealish
    B. Maddison -> Grealish
    C. Vardy -> Jimenez
    D. Vardy -> Pukki
    E. Hold all 3 for another week, make a minor (but needed swap), like Soyuncu, Connolly, or Kelly out.

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years

      B if you can use the cash elsewhere?

    2. Bushwhacker

      B is the only logical one to me.

  16. Joggers Nipple

    Got bored of thinking and yesterday just did the Wildcard (rank 600k+)

    Hederson
    TAA VVD Lacelles
    Salah Son Grealish KDB
    Auba Ings DCL

    Skelt Lund Hayden Stephens
    0.0 ITB
    Could down VVD to Gomez? Son still a question mark for me.

    Any thoughts really appreciated

    3. We Will Klopp you
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      I'd keep VVD for the goal threat, Im in a similar boat with Son, spurs don't look great and I'm not sure he'll justify 9.9m but it's a high upside punt given what he's capable of. Perhaps you could downgrade him to traore, get a starting back up keeper to cover hendersons blanks, get Jimi for dcl, who's fixtures turn soon and see what you want to do with the excess.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Cheers. My thinking currently is keep Son as no one in my mini leage has him. He will be the one to go later, if not firing to upgrade DCL

        1. We Will Klopp you
          • 3 Years
          25 days, 15 hours ago

          Makes sense then, he's got high upside if it comes off. Him and auba are both in my thoughts as players who could get me up the rankings.

    4. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 15 hours ago

      Just me, don’t like Son better than Perez and Traoré

      That’s 9.8M for player that is on an imploding team

      Defense looks great... pereira over VVD for me, but I get the idea

    5. Amey
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 13 hours ago

      I had Sonny in my ore WC team. I've sold him to fund Aguero.

      Will do Aguero Traore >> Son Jimenez near GW 28.

      Think Aguero is in Red hot form. He's actually the reason i WC'ed alongside Mane injury

  17. We Will Klopp you
    • 3 Years
    25 days, 15 hours ago

    Got serious ground to make up and considering this no Salah wildcard. Had a different draft but just can't see how I'm gonna make up ground when most wildcards are looking very similar.

    Henderson (McCarthy)
    Robbo VVD TAA (Lundy Tanga)
    KDB Mahrez Grealish Traore (Fleck)
    Aguero Auba Ings

    Thoughts?

        The rationale is that Salah isn't great away from home and we are content to grind out wins via 1/2-0 scorelines, plus our defenders all have attacking threat. Mahrez and aguero are covered by Lundy and fleck.

          I reckon it will work well and as you say different to the template.

    2. Joggers Nipple

      Looks good mate. Yes people will talk about Man C rotation but if stuggling then got to do something different

      1. We Will Klopp you
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Agreed, there's risk involved but as you said when you're behind, you're not gonna catch up by doing the same thing as everyone else.

    3. Boxwoods

      Could pay off big. Which is what you are looking for.

      1. We Will Klopp you
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 15 hours ago

        Agreed, as for captains I'm happy to captain aguero/kdb and auba, salah hasn't exactly been pulling up trees as a captaincy option either.

    Morning All,
    I hit the WC yesterday. Have this team atm with 0 itb. Anything you'd change ??

    Only thing I'm unsure about atm is Lundstram. SV is 4.5 so can get Egan/basham. Would you do that ??

    Pope McCarthy
    Taa VVD Fernandez Lundstram Rico
    Salah KDB Grealish Traore Fleck
    Aguero Vardy Ings

    Thank you !!

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 14 hours ago

      Looks good to me. With that defense, you can manage to keep Lundstram for 2-3 weeks and see if he is nailed or not.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 14 hours ago

        Morning Holmes.
        Thank you.
        Buying him back would be 0.6m expensive so waiting is great option.
        Keeping Rico because, he'll play 31. By playing WC i have essentially put water on GW 31 though. Going to play how many players i automatically have by that time.

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          25 days, 13 hours ago

          If there are only 3-4 games in GW31, you will be fine.

          Planning to get Jimenez or going to roll with that frontline? Any change in team if Man City gets a double?

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            25 days, 13 hours ago

            I was actually going to go with Son Jimenez. But rolling with Aguero Traore atm.

            Can always do Aguero Traore to Son Jimenez. I won't change IF we get an unexpected DGW. What do you think ??

            1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
              • 6 Years
              25 days, 12 hours ago

              I guess Kun-Traore will be fine for now. Maybe change in GW28.

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

                Yep. That is the plan atm.
                Thanks for helping 🙂

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 14 hours ago

      Looks good.
      I might do Fernadez to Lacelle and Rico to Stephens

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 14 hours ago

        I'd have definitely done that. 0.1m away though.
        Stephens is 4.4 & Rico SP for me is 4.1

    3. The 12th Man

    How would you rate overall positions atm.
    For me:
    Top 1 mil average player
    Top 750k fairly good
    Top 500k chances are you can play the game (without using chips even better)
    Top 100k Very good and you play the game well.
    Top 50k Very good player with luck mainly on your side.
    Top 10k Excellent with good luck too.

      Only GW38 counts.

      1. Kopkloppers
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        25 days, 13 hours ago

        I was talking about GW38

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years

          Would change 50K to 10K.

    2. Klein

      You forgot with bad luck somewhere.

      1m - very unlucky player
      750k - unlucky player
      500k - average luck
      100k - lucky player
      50k - very lucky player
      10k extremely lucky player, go play the lottery..

  22. kamdaraji
    • 10 Years
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    who would be happy with 50 points for this DGW? I know this sounds low but 50 is likely to be higher than average this week!

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      A likely red arrow.

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Really? Even though the current average is only 34?

        1. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 10 Years
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          Top 10K is higher. I'm on 38 with a small green.

    2. ppv
      • 9 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      You would want 60 for decent score

      1. kamdaraji
        • 10 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        need a Salah return to get 60 or a TAA mega haul

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      I TC'd Salah. Mane injury has not helped. Henderson (SHU) and Stephens on the bench = 22 points 🙁

      On 34 points and red arrows so need TAA and Salah to go demon in order to revive the GW.

      Fingers crossed West Ham get slaughtered.

    4. Amey
      • 1 Year
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      Currently on 48 with Taa Robbo Haller & Mane TC to go.
      I'd take 60 and run away 😀

  23. RamaJama
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    If Mane’s fit:

    A) Keep both Salah and Mane
    B) go which one of them to kdb?
    (Also have Aguero)

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      c) he's not

      1. RamaJama
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Then defo Mane to kdb?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          Cannot go without KDB. It just ends in tears.

          Ageuro on the other hand, with Pep I will not be transferring him in again this season.

          Gotta go for City assets which are 'nailed' and at this point there are virtually only 3 of them.

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            25 days, 12 hours ago

            Not on A WC, so transfering Aguero out is no option right now:

            Henderson
            TAA, Holgate, Rico
            Salah, Mane, Martial, Cantwell
            Aguero, Vardy, Ings

            Subs: Button, Traore, Kelly, Lundstram

            0 in the bank

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              25 days, 12 hours ago

              I used my WC to get Mane in for the DGW which has flopped and already taking hits to fix the fires lol. Got in Mahrez and leads to Pep roullette. So frustrating!

              Even Cantwell is injured!

              1. RamaJama
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                25 days, 12 hours ago

                Double up with Mahrez/KDB?
                Try to ignore Cantwell injury, Traore does well atm

          2. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            25 days, 12 hours ago

            Mane also have A very high ownership that can punish sellers

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              25 days, 12 hours ago

              Yeah, have had Mane twice this seadon and has trolled me.

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Are you keeping Mane?

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          25 days, 12 hours ago

          Considering if fit

    In last 3 years, Arsenal has scored 5 goals against someone in February.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      (C) Martinelli?

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Maybe vs NEW/EVE

  25. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    25 days, 12 hours ago

    I'm going to Auba over Kun and using the extra 1.2mil to upgrade Gomez to VVD.

    Reasons: Lots of people are citing the WHU fixture as a Kun(C) explosion but that week we have a TON of other great captain options. Auba NEW, Ings BUR, Son wat, heck even Sheffield BOU.

    1. Pieterke30
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      All the other great options youre mentioning are not as good as Kun vs WHM tho.

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        If I WC - depends on Mané and the result of Tuesday’s game - Im going for VVD, Auba and Kun. Dont want Son and assuming you do.

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        Salah vs Norwich is as good as Kun tho

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      If he starts, I won't be surprised to see him score a hattrick.

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        This.

        West Ham are awful atm.

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      25 days, 12 hours ago

      I might just have Son, Kun, Auba and Ings.

      1. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        25 days, 12 hours ago

        And which three Pool players? Sth has got to give. Prob three defs, or Firmino as only attacker? I want one of Salah/Mané more than Id want Son tbh.

        Or maybe it’s KDB youre giving up?

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          no KdB

                    Pity Mane is injured as I can get Kun for free...now many will sell Mane and get one of Kun/Auba

                      25 days, 11 hours ago

                        not at the moment.

                        Might get him back this week together with Kun or Auba.

                        Or Mahrez

                      2. FOO FIGHTER
                        25 days, 11 hours ago

                        Mahrez lol. I got him and Pep trolled me.

  26. Holmes (specialist in failu…

    Sterling is still 11.7! 😮

      And been an utter fail.

    2. Amey

      25 days, 11 hours ago

      No returns since GW 19 ....
      He's having a terrible season (fpl wise)

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

        Saw him yesterday and it looks like he has forgotten to play football, ball control was like some rookie.

        1. Amey
          • 1 Year
          25 days, 11 hours ago

          Yep. Whenever I've seen him play recently looks like the worst City player on the pitch. It's a big complement when you have Otamendi playing too 😀

  27. FOO FIGHTER
    25 days, 11 hours ago

    WC came to bite me in the arse.

    Fixing the issues now though. Already took a -12 and planning a -8 for GW26.

    Differentials my aim now. Been hovering in the 100k's for 4 GW's now so going to chase to break into the top 100.

    Likes of Vardy, Mane already transferred out. Lundstram next.

    1. Bobby Digital

      Hits are bad mm'kay?

      1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
        • 6 Years

        Nope

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          25 days, 11 hours ago

          All depends on your moves.

          Hits either pan out or go tits up.

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      top 100

      😯

      1. FOO FIGHTER

        Top 100k lol.

  28. Lindelol

    25 days, 11 hours ago

    If you have salah KDB and Grealish who is the best Mane replacement?

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

      Probably Son

      I would take a punt on Redmond

      1. Lindelol
        • 1 Year
        25 days, 11 hours ago

        Redmond why?

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

          Like the way he is playing, feels like he has improved and shots are looking much better than previous seasons. Just a punt which I feel has some potential, won't have huge expectations due to his history.

          1. Lindelol
            • 1 Year

            Hmm thanks

    2. Bobby Digital

      Son, Martial, Alli and Maddison

      Guess we are all waiting on Cup draws and Semi Final results to see which way we are going.
      I’m shipping Mane.
      You could ship Mane to a cheap player and either do one of two things.
      1. Get double Liverpool defence
      2. Greenwood > Aubamayang or Aguero

    Looking like a Mané >> Fleck this week.
    Will be going into the GW with 7.4m itb. Lol
    and this team
    Henderson
    TAA,Digne,Lascelles
    Salah,KDB,Son, Grealish,Fleck
    DCL, Deeney

    McCarthy,Greenwood,Williams, Lundstrum 7.4m itb.

    0.2m short of Greenwood >> Aguero for WH.
    1.Forget Aguero and go Aubamayang
    2. Deeney > Aguero which would leave 1.6m to get a second Liverpool defender.
