    Is the general consensus that Lund has been dropped or could it have just been a rest?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Rest imo

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      I think he is having a rest, but e.g. plenty considering getting rid on WC.

        People that can't think for themselves or question the rumours that don't make sense. These people deserve what they get.

          Calm down mate. Plenty of ways to play the game, not everyone has to own Lundstram.

    3. Aston VII lalalala
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Honestly I don't know where this information is coming from. He didn't start 2 games - both against Man C. If he's been dropped from the 1st team, why was he benched for the entire FA cup game?

      1. Bird Raymond
        • 9 Years

        Man of the match performance from Besic at the weekend and scored a cracking goal.

      One thing we do know; 90% of us have Lund. We will only know his status next game. We all therefore should have a tactic to move him on, no matter his value, or have a decent bench enabler.
      I am keeping until further notice due to S United fixtures. I will have Lascelles/Stevens/Williams/Holgate (one of them) to cover any benching inevitability.
      Sit on your hands for now IMO.

      @ Ason Willa

      I've had him from the start and will be keeping for now.

      Just interested in hearing other people's opinions. That's what forums are for.

      1. Aston VII lalalala
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        The problem is that a lot of BS gets spouted off in the forum and then people start complaining after the fact. I know you weren't spreading rumours, you asked a question based upon what you previously saw so fair play.

    6. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I don’t think there is a consensus. I also suspect that those who have moved Lundstram have made an error. Keeping.

  2. My heart goes Salalalalah

    Best mid up to 11m? Not KdB or Son

    1. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      First name Slim

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yep. Should I look at Traore maybe and then change Ings or Jimme to Aguero and upgrade Dendo?

        1. Over Midwicket
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Yeah I'd almost certainly do a double switch. Downgrade Mane to a cheapie and upgrade some FWD to Auba/Kun

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Grealish/Pepe/Mahrez/Redmond

      1. My heart goes Salalalalah
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Mmmm Mahrez or Redmond is interesting. Have Grealish

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Redmond has been due a haul since about 2014.

          1. Holmes
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            And finally delivered last week 😉

            1. OleGGMU
              • 1 Year
              9 months, 3 days ago

              Will he now do an Almiron and Harvey Barnes and score again, current pattern would suggest yes, all 3 have gone a very long time wivout scoring until now

              1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 3 Years
                9 months, 3 days ago

                Owned by Holmes.
                But don't think what Almiron and Barnes are doing really matters.
                Redmond is a decent player, but no world-beater - he is on target to perform about as well as he has done pretty much every other season of his career.

  3. balint84
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Which midfielders worth -4 now? (not including Salah & KDB)

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Take a punt on whichever midfielder you like, there aren't really any standout options. Son/Mahrez are getting some love. Grealish is also fine.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Whoever is playing West Ham next

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      -4? None.

  4. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    So after a nice weekend break from FPL, what would you do with this lot? Got a few ideas but all dependent on injury news.

    McCarthy
    TAA • Lunds • Rico
    KDB • Salah • Grealish • Mané* • Mahrez
    Vardy* • Maupay
    (McGov. Greenwood. Soy. Aurier)

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      It's a tough one. Similar here. If Mane isn't serious I'm looking at Vardy and Soy to Newcastle def and Auba. If he is... I have him, Martial, a few defenders I don't like - so a wildcard might be needed.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah tough one. Some options I put together are below:

        A. Soy >> Fernandez
        B. Mahrez+Vardy >> Agüero+Traoré
        C. Mane+Greenwood >> Agüero+Hayden (go 3-4-3)

        IF They are both fit then I might just do A and then the following over the next two GWs to get Ings for Burnley, Villa and Jimmy for Norwich.

        GW26: Mahrez+Greeny >> Ings+Hayden
        GW27: Maupay >> Jimmy

        1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Looks like a good plan. I like B certainly.

    2. aborg
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      May I know why you want to get rid of Mahrez at this point? I know he is a slight rotation risk but he is a very good diiferential and this point of the game, especially if you are lagging behind.
      I was thinking to bring him in instead of Mane actually.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Just the rotation really. I’m not sure I do but @ 8.5m he is going to cause me headaches week in week out unfortunately

  5. HurriKane
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Who are the best 3 midfielders to own below 8.5m at the moment?

    Id Say Grealish Traore and Perez

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Traoré and Grealish. Then KDB and Mane if fit, or Salah if not. I don’t think a 5 man midfield is worth it now

      1. OleGGMU
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Completely disagree, unless BB has already been used,but even then, rotation gonna pick up imo wiv the fixture congestion so having a playing bench , for me , is essential atm given the possibility of injuries picking up aswell

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          I didn’t say not to have a playing bench I just said I wouldn’t want to be playing 5 in the middle each week anymore. I’d get Fleck or Cantwell @ 5m as my 5th mid right now and bench most weeks

    2. balint84
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Martial, Willian, Dilva

      1. HurriKane
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Im sorry none of them appeals to me.

        Martial returns would suffer without Rashford
        Willian has tough fixtures
        Dilva will be rotated

    3. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      You could add Mahrez at 8.5 to your list.

  6. Time to move on from Vardy?
    Sam FPLFamily
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 3 days ago

    With Rodgers suggesting that Vardy’s glute injury isn’t too serious what are you planning to do with the Leicester forward? Are you keeping him or on the basis of his form in 2020 are you looking to move him on?

    1. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Will wait for news, team sheet in the Carabao cup! Also depending on result

      Leicester go through then Vardy has

      CHE wol MCI blank

      That changes the landscape significantly, particularly with Laportes return

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Getting rid for next 3-4 GWs, then reassess whether I should get him back or not.

      1. OleGGMU
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Same here and other interesting options , cheaper, are opening up like Deeney and Wood to add to the current DCL, Jimi, Ings parties

    3. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Prob selling

    4. HurriKane
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Am absolutely amazed Vardy is sold in big numbers. Take the westham game where he was withdrawn due to injury and he had

      11 goals and 5 assists in his last 12 pl starts

      -- Are you kidding me? My mind is incapable of finding logic in the kneejerk reaction aimed towards him lately. People are blinded by the two games he missed due to his wife child birth

      -- Rodgers had come out and said he is fine for next gw. Ndidi is back as well. Vardy has form and great fixtures on the horizon. Go on fall for the Kun trap aka pep roulette

      -- His fixtures are excellent for next 8 matches especially against relegation fodders (wol MCI nor AVL wat BHA eve CPL)

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        people are looking at:

        2, 0,0,5,0 and 1

      2. The 12th Man
        • 7 Years

        He can be bought back you know.

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          This. Sold for Jimmy

        2. Stoichkov#8
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          for 0.5 more - nah, keeping

          1. The 12th Man
            • 7 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            Don’t be hung up over losing value.

            1. Stoichkov#8
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 3 days ago

              Not only this. Appart from 3 games where he practically didnt play you have returns i all last games 10-15 games where he play. He only blank vs Liv (fair enough) and where that unfortunate pen miss happen (if he scored that pen we wouldnt talk about that here probably).
              Well, for me this looks like fantastic player to own 😉
              Will just bench him in blank GW.

      3. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        If you think that's knee jerk damn, you must have had sterling like 14 weeks

      4. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        If he scored that pen situation would be complitely diferent.
        He would got some bonus points maybe and as most captained him they would be happy. They will say that 2 x 0 pts was just cuz we wasnt playing so forget that and in last game he played just 42mins so just forget those 3 games as it wasnt there so appart from that he got so many returns (almost every game) that we must keep him and not many people would like to sell him.

        For me its opprosite of chasing points - we already got him while he got those blanks so now he will return scoring imo.

      5. El Lobito 10
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Maybe but the next games aren't so easy. Can bring back in three gameweeks. He isn't on form either, missed a pen and hasn't scored in ages. Auba, Jimi, and even Pukki v NEW better options

    5. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Left my team on WC last week before his injury.

    6. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years

      Keeping for now, other fires to put out.

    7. kime67
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I dont care if hes fit for chelsea. Sold him for auba straight away after he left the pitch. So tired of him.

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        I'd get rid if I were wildcarding, but I got other priorities, foremost being Tammy. Not only is he looking like less than 50% to start next GW, but Chelsea could get in another striker on TDD. I can give Vardy another week or two. I'm not doing anything until my 3 Reds have completed their gameweek anyway. Half-expecting my TC Salah to go the way of Mane.

      2. Aston VII lalalala
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        You're so tired of the highest scoring forward in the game?

    8. kime67
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Was never essential. Nobody is.

    9. melvinmbabazi

      keeping

    10. Bury94

      100% keeping

    11. DAVESAVES

      Keeping

    12. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years

      if he is fit - keeping and maybe just bench on blank GW

    13. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years

      Wait until more news... plus we will know about BGW28 later this week.

    14. Bayer Lewa Kun Son
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I'm keeping at least until Rashford return , and then I'll ser how ir GOES

    15. The Rumour Mill
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Well it depends doesn't it? This would be a more useful hot topic on Friday.

      Injured wol MCI blank

      is a sell.

      CHE wol MCI nor

      is a hold, unless I also have back Abraham, Sarr and Mane for the weekend and therefore the luxury of transferring Vardy out.

      It also completely depends on how many injured or suspended players you have in your squad. I wouldn't be opposed to holding Vardy for Chelsea, as they are in poor form at the moment and the defence, and in particular the keeper leave a lot to be desired.

    16. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Sold for Aubu, opportunity and excuse arises to sell, means opportunity to catch on some other points train with less ownership. Same with Tammy before Christmas.

    17. the Penman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I’m sorely tempted to ship him and Mané and get on the Aguero bandwagon.

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

      I think Vardy is the easiest of easy holds

      His recent record is perfectly acceptable/explainable imo - it’s actually even great considering the circumstances

      GW18 mci - 9 (excellent)
      GW19 LIV - 2 (not going to criticise for blanking vs best team in the world)
      GW20 & GW21 - 0 mins - so zero points is hard to criticise
      GW22 - SOU - 1 Assist (a superb Assist) & a VAR disallowed goal millimetres from being allowed, plus a VAR disallowed Assist - would have been another haul
      GW23 - missed a pen - he’s only human - an 8 or 9 point swing with baps
      GW24 off injured unluckily early so couldnt get involved in the later goals

      I think he’s going to burn his doubters quite horrifically - unless he keeps getting injured and/or keeps missing penalties - but to me those are things I don’t think you can really predict

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Agree. Those are his last returns when played properly: 8, 20, 6, 12, 12, 6, 5, 13, 5, 9, 2(Liv), 5, 0(pen miss).

        If you ask me its more than great!

        1. jtreble
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          "... when played properly ...". What does this mean?

          1. Stoichkov#8
            • 5 Years
            9 months, 3 days ago

            0 mins, 0 mins, 42 mins and injury - those 3 games doesnt count

      2. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Think he is going stale, the real winners got off Vardy two to three weeks ago. You can always go back to him if needs be, if I still had him now not sure I would lose unless injured. But took him out for Bobby which has gone ok so far

        1. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Letting value hold off moves tho can be very damaging imo. What if you stick with him in total for 7/8 blanks, how far behind someone would you be if they used that Vardy slot for Bobby in the double and then Auba or Kun.

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

          I think the folks who sold him got lucky:

          A. That he was unable to play vs Newcastle & West Ham
          B. That he had a goal and assist that were millimeters offside disallowed by VAR against Southampton
          C. That he missed a penalty vs Burnley
          D. That he went off injured before Leicester scored another 3 vs West Ham

          I don't want to rely on that luck continuing 😉

    19. baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Planning to get him back after blank 🙂 If there is correct timing in betting against him (or template without him), it has to be right now imo. I doubt he will punish sellers before and during blank. It is a risk I can take imo.

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

        The last time I heard "And anyway, I can always buy him back if he hits form" was TAA sellers in GW17 😉

      Yes; Vardy has poor form, poor stats and bad fixtures and a possible blank all those scream sell for me

    Where has the DGW26 possibility come from? And specifically what date is suggested as plausible?

    Pool have a rearrangement into that period for the FA Cup replay and the prem have asked pool to respect the winter break. As such pool will be playing kids. I can’t see the prem rearranging a game into their own winter break.

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Pep said something like " we will train for couple of days, then play vs Arsenal during winter break"

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Pep Guardiola on the winter break plans:

      "A few days off and after train again here to prepare for Arsenal. I want the guys to stay with their families and themselves and in this case I decided to be here."

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Presumably Pep has already done his planning for Spurs, West Ham and Leicester?

      2. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        That's not what pep said though. It's misquoted.

    3. OleGGMU
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      The difference in reactions to playing in the winter break shows how far Pool have to go before they can match City and effectively compete for more than one trophy.
      Pep :eh business as usual
      Klopp : *Borrows Balotellis "why always me" shirt * but but ze fixtures ...why always us eh

    4. Lord - Blaming it on Rio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      If City and Arsenal progress in Europe and the FA Cup they could be faced with three fixtures to make up, and only two DGW slots available (GWs 34 and 37). We won't know the FA Cup semi-finalists until early March (after GW31) and, if the PL wait until then (which they usually do), a TGW37 could be unavoidable.

      PL planners could avoid this risk by bringing forward the City-Arsenal game to GW26. They did something similar last season, but that did not involve messing with the Winter break. Its hard to imagine the PL doing this in the first year of implementation, when it could prove to be unnecessary, but the alternative could also turn out to be worse.

  8. PanJawel2
    • 2 Years

    Auba or Kun and why ?

    1. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Both

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Auba - Arsenal's talisman.
      GW28 off so Burnley then 3 home games in a row against teams that are not so great.
      City can chug along quite nicely without Kun.
      Auba cheaper too.

  9. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

    Mane DCL -> Grealish Agüero -4?

    McCarthy
    Trent Digne Rico
    Salah Mane* KDB Mahrez
    Vardy* Deeney DCL

    (McGovern Lundstram Kabasele Cantwell)
    0.5 ITB 1FT

    Or any other suggestion?

    1. D.Glynn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Aubu instead of Kun

  10. DAZZ

    9 months, 3 days ago

    So my WC currently looks like this:

    Henderson Mccarthy
    TAA Gomez Lundstram Lascelles Stephens
    KDB Salah Mahrez Traore Fleck
    Aubameyang Ings Jiminez

    0.7ITB to play with. Hoping Auba can fire me back into the top 100K after a disastrous month 🙁 Any suggestions?

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Looks lovely!

    2. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Lovely enough to make me wonder about hitting the wildcard button myself...

      1. DAZZ
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        I wouldn't if you don't need too mate. My team was a mess. I had Willems, Kelly, Rico, Guaita, Mane, Cantwell, Martial, Vardy. Nothing was working, and dropped from 50K > 350K since before christmas, i needed a change!! So unless your doing as bad as me, id hold out 🙂 Thoughts on Mahrez????

        1. DantheManinaPan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Fair enough. I share those attackers, but my defence is in mildly better shape.

          I still have a smidgen of hope that both Vardy and Mane are good for GW25

        2. DantheManinaPan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          I don't know about Mahrez. Haven't done enough research. I assume you know the risks, so don't decide to sell him the moment he gets benched.

        3. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 3 days ago

          Mahrez seems an unnecessary risk given champions league rotation but could also be gold
          Also can’t think of obvious replacements

    3. OleGGMU
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      I'd say you are GTG , but have a plan for the blanks, wiv Arse and city possibility, save fts over the next 2 gws to follow and reassess prior to gw 28

    4. The 12th Man

      Decent side just not a fan of triple Sheffield

  11. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Mane(!) - KdB - Maddison(!) - Grealish - Dendoncker
    Vardy(!) - Abraham(!) - Ings

    1 ft, 1m in the bank, no idea what to do.

    1. balint84

      wc or play your super defenders

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Mane and Abraham to 2 decent players for -4 is a good deal.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…

    4. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Whats wrong with maddison? Just take a -4 to fix mane and abraham imo

  12. kime67

    Any chance lundstram gets his place back?

    1. Holmes

      Yes

    2. Do I Not Like Orange

      Of course. Not even convinced he's actually lost it.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Think he just had a well-desereved rest - was looking like he was swimming through treacle over recent weeks.

    4. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Likely imo

      He sat on the bench during the FA Cup match on the weekend. What does that tell you?

  13. Holmes

    Would you drop Pereira or Soyuncu for Sheffield defender?

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Soyuncu yes.
      Pereira is a lovely differential who is playing well.

      1. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Thanks

        Yeah, love to see Pereira play in advanced position 😀

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…

      Easily Soy if money no object.

      1. Holmes

        Money not an issue, especially if Mane is ruled out.

    Thanks

    1. DAZZ
      • 6 Years

      look below, i'm just posted about WC Midfields. Do you not think Grealish, Fleck and Traore is a weak 3?

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Possibly but there fixtures are great (maybe not so much Grealish)and they rotate well with each other- and there isn't really any other options?

        I am monitoring Richarlison at the moment.

        1. DAZZ
          • 6 Years

          Have you considered Mahrez?

        no, trying to hang on a while longer

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years

          Used mine last week and already wanting to re shuffle due to Mane injury.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        not the ones with Kun, KdB, Jimenez, Ings, auba..no

  18. DAZZ
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    Fellow wildcarders. I assume most have 3 of Salah/KDB/Traore/Grealish or perhaps even 4 of them. If not who is your 4th Midfielder? I'm so tempted, and have been sat on Mahrez since i pressed the button. Any thoughts or Suggestions? I just feel Traore/Grealish and then a 5th fodder is too weak of a midfield

    1. quayle99
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Fleck, Cantwell, maybe son if more funds free

    2. Christina.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Maybe Im stubborn...I have Son(No Traore no Grealish)

    3. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Grealish/Traore as 4th and Fleck as 5th should be strong enough.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Grealish high ownership so just depends if you want to chase or stay with the pack. Obviosly need KDB and Salah is still a slight differential compared to other high owned mids.

      Traore seems to blow hot and cold but his price is right.

  19. quayle99
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 3 days ago

    KDB Salah Fleck * *
    Auba Martinelli *

    A. Son, Traure, Ings
    B. Mane, Cantwell, Ayew
    C. Traure, Cantwell, Aguero

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 4 Years

      C

  20. ChickenTikkaMoSalah

    How’s my WC team looking?

    Henderson
    TAA,Lascelles,O’Connell
    Salah,KDB,Grealish,Fleck
    Aguero,Firmino,Deeney

    McCarthy,Perez,Williams,Stephens

    1. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      IMO Ings/Jimenez is almost a must on a wildcard.

      Otherwise,good team - did you ditch Lundstram?

    2. The 12th Man

    1. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years

      Mane out to a cheapie like Fleck/Armstrong/Traore to fund getting Aubamayang or Aguero in?

      1. J0E

        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years

        Excellent question relating to my future plans. 🙂

        1. The 12th Man
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 2 days ago

          Will you be taking a hit to do something like Mane,Haller > Fleck,Aguero/Auba or doing it over 2 GWs for free?

    2. Tony Martial
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Is having Grealish,Traore,and Fleck too weak on a wildcard?

      Have KDB,and Salah also.

    3. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      1. Is it too early to act on a second wildcard with so many variables? (mane/vardy/blanks and dgw still not detailed)

      2. Is it worth getting players that blank in gw28? Auba and Aguero, maybe even Sheff Utd, Leicester.

    4. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Is now the time to maximise Blades value with fixtures turning

    5. The 12th Man
      • 7 Years

      Do Everton need a new goalkeeper?

    6. Mikeharbrw
      • 7 Years

      What on earth just happened this gw?

    7. Stoichkov#8
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Is selling Vardy (if fit) a good idea?
      Forget about 3 games where he didnt play (42mins last game) as it doesnt mean anything. Unfortunate pen miss probably cause all that situation that everyone wants to sell him. Look at his points in games where he actually play (8, 20, 6, 12, 12, 6, 5, 13, 5, 9, 2(Liv), 5, 0-pen miss) - is it really THAT bad?? His ONLY blank was Pool and pen miss situation.

      Chelsea game more than fine for his style of play also Wolves and City arent that good at CS and than....he has soo nice fix so esp with people who got him early is it worth to sell him and than get back for 0.4-0.5 more? Maybe just bench him for BGW?

    8. Do I Not Like Orange
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Mane replacements for those who already own the usual suspects (Salah, KDB, Grealish, Maddo)

      1. Stoichkov#8
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 3 days ago

        Without any information about his injury (he may be fit for next GW) he can be almost a must have for those fix so no point talking about that without information about his return date.

        Generally I hope his TCs will angry sell him and he will be back for next GW to get some goalsas his next 5 are Sou, Nor, WHU, Wat, Bou....not bad.

    9. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Many have activated the wildcard after a horror GW24 and injuries to some highly owned players like Mane, Vardy, Abraham including myself.

      What players should make the core of this early wildcard and differentials to consider alongside them?

    10. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      With the 5th round FA Cup draw tonight, a first look at potential BGWs/DGW and Chip Strategy options would be great.

      Currently thinking :

      Dead end into BGW28.
      WC 29 to maximise WC.
      FH for BGW 31.
      BB for DGW.

    13. A Fat Spanish Waiter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 3 days ago

      Mane out to:

      1) a cheaper mid. Use the cash to upgrade a cheaper striker (DCL, for example) to Auba or Aguero; or

      2) a more expensive mid (son, sterling, etc) and move Vardy for Auba or Aguero.

      As an aside, how do you feel about a hit to accomplish this.

      several questions already on 2nd WCs.
      Many TCs not paid off for those looking to improve struggling ranks.
      Time to play 2nd WCs or can those struggling afford to wait for the DGWs?

    Thoughts on Martinelli over Auba, is he nailed on?

      No he isn't nailed, however, I'm curious to see the next line up given Martinellis form and Auba refund from suspension. I follow Arsenal and would like to see a trial of Martinelli on the left, Auba up front, Pepe on the right and Laca being used as an impact sub.

        I'd like a refund from auba too !!! But seriously I'm an arsenal fan too and I'd like Arteta to run with that as a formation. Martinelli too good for bench and auba best up front

          Ha, just seen typo, yeah I really do think that would get the best results, we shall see.

    What to do here guys... assuming that Vardy is ok and Mane is going to miss 3 or 4 weeks??

    Henderson
    TAA Lundstram Dunk
    Mane Salah KDB Grealish
    Vardy DCL Greenwood

    McGovern Rico Soyuncu Dendoncker

    1 FT, 2.5 ITB

      Would hold Mané until we have more info & upgrade Dendoncker or Greenwood.
      If you are confortable playing Rico or Söyüncü (as I am) then roll the FT

    Rooting for Arsenal today vs Bournemouth. Keep the dream alive for 8 blank fixtures in GW31.

    Would people actually use free hit if there's only 2-3 fixtures in 31? It feels like a chip that should be used for exciting players (e.g a double or walkover fixture for Kun or Auba). Would feel wrong using it to fill my team full of dross from Newcastle or Burnley.

      Will only use it if there's some good fixtures, otherwise just field as much as I can and make sure I have a good captain that week
