    Seems like away teams are doing well in empty stadiums.

    How many 'away' players do you have in your starting XI?

    1. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      10 out of 15 are away so i am sorted. 😎

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years

      Currently 10

      This feels a bit like the “VAR gave loads of penalties in the World Cup so how many penalty takers are in your GW1 team” logic 🙂

        Yeah, we all lknow how that went. Whatever happened to Milovojevic?

    Hows everyone's coronavirus FF planning coming along? I was going to play the free hit next week but I'm tempted to save all my chips for the last four gameweeks or so.

    Didnt you Brits Brexit recently anyway? Cant you just lock down the borders to stop Corona?

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Because of Brexit. We’re the only country allowed to travel to USA

      Please do so we can watch PL when everything else is going to be suspended.

    Anybody know why Doherty was subbed at half time tonight? Not injured is he?

    1. pricycle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I want to know too, just transferred him in an hour ago (forgot wolves were playing euros and needed to ditch pereira).

      BBC commentary suggests it was a tactical sub to get more pace on the pitch (Neto) and take advantage of ten men

      1. TLF
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Makes sense, plus Doc was on a YC.

  5. Flynny

    This must be the first time the prime minister has been quoted in scout tweets....crazy times

  6. Ole Trafford

    Gerard and rangers on the way out

    1. villa_til_i_die

      Surprise surprise!

  7. El Lobito 10
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Robbo to Alonso for a hit? Alonsp away form is incredible and Villa second worst defence in the league. Liverpool porous.

    1. Woy_is_back
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Chelsea Will concede though

      1. El Lobito 10
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        It's for his attacking intent

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          No attacking threat in a back 4, so depends if you think they change formation back

          1. El Lobito 10
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            True

      2. DAZZ

        So will Liverpool.

      There is still plenty of time for a few of them to be cancelled but no point worrying as there is nothing that we can do.

      1. Clever Cloggins Mrs Goggins
        • 5 Years

        Basically the FPL motto of 2020...

        1. Flynny
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Either the rest of the worlf has it wrong

          Or we do....

          1. Whats the Huth
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            The season will get postponed in about 4 or 5 weeks.

            1. villa_til_i_die
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              I’d say 2 or 3 wks

    2. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Some clarity at last. 🙂

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years

      No surprises there.

    4. walkman666
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I can see this changing quickly. La Liga, Serie A, NBA, NHL, NCAA hoops, just a matter of time till they are all watching Netlifx like us.

    5. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Surprised how little England cares about this, irresponsable big time. How can they still arrange matches? This won’t be over in 3-4 weeks, and by the lack of action taken, it’s going to be nasty.

      1. DeadStar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        It's such a difficult situation. I honestly don't think the country can realistically lock down for 2-3 months. Some (if not most) businesses wouldn't survive. Thing is, if anybody is that worried then just self isolate. Nobody is forcing anyone to go to any of these mass crowd events. Or am I missing something?

        1. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Yes, your missing the ones who get infected by the people getting infected on A match, those who can die from the virus

          1. DeadStar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Sorry, I don't understand what you mean?

            You got it sir.
            Last night the Danish prime minister locked down the entire public sector (exept ofc those working in a critical profession such as firefighters and nurses and stuff).

            Unless your parents are in such professions all children has to stay home from school (both parents - it is not enough for one of them to be a nurse, and the other one to work in a bank or such).
            Most in the private sector is working from home.

            This started today and until 30th of march (but will prolly go further).

            Yesterday we had 500 infected

            1. DeadStar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              How does it work with salaries? How are people going to afford to do this? Plus, the company I work for here would probably go bust if this happened here. We're a manufacturer and can't work from home.

              1. DeadStar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Sorry just seen you're talking just public sector?

                1. Salarrivederci
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Ye the prime minister locked down more or less everyone working in the public sector besides those in a critical profession. The police, nurses, firefighters, doctors and such need to carry on.
                  The private business can choose for themselves, but let's assume, that you are a banker, and your partner cuts hair. You got 3 kids. Those kids are not allowed to go to daycare, schools or any other public service. If you could get your neighbors to watch after them for 14 days thats alright, but otherwise they would need to be with you on the job. That is another reason for alot of private business owners and chiefs to send home their workers. No way they want 100 kids running around the office 😉

              2. Salarrivederci
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                The government body are 'somewhat' covering the companys who suffers while this is going on. Not collecting taxes. Boosting their cash and cash equivalents
                All bound by a contract gets paid. Those in the public service are getting fully paid, and will do their work from home (if possible). The private companies are deciding what to do themselves, but most are just following the public sector (sending all home with a laptop).
                Haven't heard of anyone not getting paid (unless you're on/off working at hourly salery. Those owning a business, investing and stuff might lose, but the average working man and women gets paid

                1. DeadStar
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Sounds good. I don't think it will be quite the same here. In fact, I know it isn't. Most people won't be able to afford to be off work even if they're advised to.

                  1. Salarrivederci
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Ye Denmark is cool in that way.
                    Ofc many of our companies bleed, but I think most will pull through.

    6. DeadStar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Cool. I'll start looking at what to do now.

    All systems go for weekend

    *Still waiting until 11.29 to do Maddison > Bruno & Set (c) Vardy

    1. Whats the Huth
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Vardy captain again?
      I am tempted also.

      I do wonder if Mané is a better option though.

      1. reo19uk
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Surely their game will be off with 3 players having to self isolate

        1. Annie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          We’ll be able to react as we’ll (very likely) have teamsheets from the Leicester twitter mole

        3. villa_til_i_die
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Plus villa and Norwich played leic recently, they will think twice too. Plus more players coming out regularly now about self isolating

      2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        There’s no greater sight in FPL than Vardy (c) at the start of a streak 🙂

    2. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…

    Should I do Perez to Sarr or risk waiting for late team news? I could hold....

  12. Whats the Huth

    Ings to grouid is on the cards

    1. Ady87
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Yep, looking at the same move. Allows me to do Martial > Bruno also for free if I need too.

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years

      Tempted to hold Ings this week

  13. FPL Kakarot

    Team and bench looks ok? But if a benching headache to be honest.

    Henderson.
    Doherty. TAA. Fernandez. Soyuncu
    KDB. Mane (C). Salah.
    Grouid. Vardy (VC). Jiminez

    McGovern. Saint-Maximin. Saka. Rico

  16. GREEN IS GOOD

  18. DAZZ
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Alonso has played 1,558 minutes less than Alderweireld and has 11 more points. Crazy stat.

    Alonso - 77 points / 858 minutes
    Alderweireld - 66 points / 2417 minutes

    I find this fascinating, Roughly 15 games it works out at. Just goes to show how much of a FPL phenomenon Alonso was and still is when he plays regularly. For what its worth..

    Digne - 83 points - 2241 minutes

    1. g40steve

  19. g40steve
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Wk 31, do I need more than, Salah, Trent, Taylor, Sarr, Boly, Jota, Pope & Jimenez?

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      One more if you can but not sure who. Generally who you’d want, there.

  20. Top Lad Dakes.
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Not sure what to do here really. 2FT, 0.3 ITB, FH/WC/BB all available. 6BGW currently...

    McCarthy (Martin)
    TAA Lascelles Boly (Taylor Rico)
    Salah Mane KDB* Martial* (Perez)
    Ings Jimenez DCL

    Just Perez to someone like Sarr for BGW? Or to fodder and plan to FH? Who to captain?

    1. matiakez
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Perez out looks the best option your right. Sarr a decent shout or even Antonio/Bowen if you can stretch that far.

      Defo wouldn't free hit with Salah and Mane already there.

      1. Top Lad Dakes.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Fair, cheers. Only problem being I’m currently benching Perez anyway this week so if I bought Sarr or Antonio/Bowen would you play them over anyone I’m starting (granted I have injury risks)

    2. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I like the Sarr transfer. Maybe Martial to Fernandes. Personally, I'm torn between Jim and Mane as my (c) this gw.

    3. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Sarr gives an extra 31 player.

    Just seen a tweet off city benjamin mendy being tested for corona virus then it dissapeared anyone else see it .

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 21 days ago

      Yes. Well, I got BBC sport notification on it actually

        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Not looking good then

    2. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Rather, that he’s self isolating after family member admitted to hospital with symptoms

      1. clodhopper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        No they said he was being tested

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Probably why they deleted the tweet as that appears to be wrong. I think it is what I said

          1. clodhopper
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Yes seems unless he has and they slipped up the plot thickens and not in a good way

    Need to do something here as have 2 frees...

    McCarthy Pope
    TAA Gomez Egan Boly Lascelles
    Salah Cantwell Barnes Bruno KDB
    Ings Jimi Vardy

    Reluctantly Ings out the best option? Don't really have enough in the bank to move Barnes to a 31 player i want.

    1. Top Lad Dakes.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Barnes to Sarr maybe? Reluctant to sell Ings here too. And not sure who for other than a maybe Jota

      Help above? X

    I think it is unlikely that GW29 goes ahead.
    Gw28 will but 29 will be the first postponement.
    I wonder whether it will still be GW29 one month later and just the dates of every GW will be changed.
    I assume so.
    But bc of changed dates and Cup games maybe annihilated anyway GW29 might not be blanking anymore..

      Sorry 31

            That’s the most compelling story since the dawn of civilisation

          And a mistake. It can’t continue surely. Crazy to do so.

          Who can even focus on sport in the face of such danger.

        It is highly unlikely that mendy remains the only player that has to self isolate. Soon every player is a liability for the next one.

          Just on probability, it would not be that surprising if every PL team had at least one player in their first-team squad and staff that, if tested, would have a positive coronavirus result.

          He must have had contact with many others

        I actually have no clue what to do here... Any thoughts? 1FT 0.1ITB

        Henderson
        TAA Doherty Hanley
        Salah Pepe Fernandes Richarlison Cantwell
        Aguero(C) DCL

          A nice, slightly differential team. I would play ings over Cantwell for starters though. Could probably save FT

        What’s the twitter page for early team news for the first match in the gameweek?

        Given all the uncertainty think I'll just roll the transfer this week

        GK Pope
        DEF TAA, Cathcart, Saiss
        MID Salah, KDB, Mane, Saar
        FWD Auba, Ings, Jimmy

        Subs - Barnes, Stephens, Williams 

        That's 8 for GW31 (probably won't happen will it) and 2 free transfers.

        I'll captain a pool, with either Auba or KDB vice as they play Saturday.

        By holding off I'm not bringing more GW31 players in for a GW that just might not happen given the Virus

        If Watford v Leicester is called off my bench easily covers it?

        Think my plan is alright?
