Recapping the best Bournemouth players ahead of FPL restart

With top-flight football and Fantasy Premier League set to resume in June, we continue with our team-by-team series of refresher articles.

Using each club’s last six matches as a jumping-off point, we are focusing on which players were in favour and catching the eye before the coronavirus outbreak halted proceedings in mid-March.

A total of 15 teams will be covered in this series, with the other five Premier League sides having been studied in separate pieces looking at the ‘new manager bounce’.

You can find the relevant links at the bottom of this article.

Of course, plenty has changed since Gameweek 29 and three months will have gone by without a ball being kicked by the time we recommence. Any form, to use a tired old cliche, may simply go out of the window given the length of time the Premier League has been dormant.

Still, with there having been no managerial changes or new signings during the downtime, most sides’ set-ups – from personnel and formation to playing style – will likely be instantly recognisable when play restarts next month.

        Thing is this season is now a bit of a lottery. Some left field things bound to happen with some random club catching fire early doors.

          Yeah, definitely. The possibility (even if it's a slim one) that the season could still be curtailed after a restart - if we have a second COVID-19 wave, for instance - will surely focus the minds of the teams who are fighting for survival/Europe from the off in case a points-per-game resolution is needed.

        Don't worry. We know that articles still need to be put out so that you can earn your ̶ ̶p̶a̶y̶ ̶ free membership. 😉

    vFPL lineup -
    A) Sterling Grealish > Salah Neto
    B) FH this week?
    Auba Vardy Jiménez Doherty Alonso and co all tempting switcheroos
    (but will mean -4 to reclaim Mo next wk)
    C) something else 2FT 0ITB - cheers 🙂

    McCarthy
    TAA Laporte Webster
    Mané Sterling Sané Grealish
    Pukki Jota Deeney

    (Heaton Holgate Lundstram Basham)

    1. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Personally holding Grealish for the next two - might even go differential Zaha for those greens.

      Sane is a bit of a puzzle.

      FH could work. Personally I’d go Fernandes and Doherty from Sane and Laporte. Would that allow you Mo from Sterling Grealish next time for a hit?

    2. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I like A or perhaps Sterling to Neto and Pukki to Aubameyang

    1) Do we have a date that the fixtures will be confirmed?

    2) Do we know when the current season ends and the new one starts?

    1. circusmonkey

      not yet.

      The government announcement yesterday was needed for a full fixture list announcement. Probably tomorrow

      The current intention is for the Premier League to be completed by the end of July, and the FA Cup Final to be played on 1st August.
      Presumably they will also be hoping to complete the playoffs for promotion from the Championship and other lower leagues by then or soon after.
      Hopefully, they will confirm the fixtures for at least the opening round of matches very soon, but they may first need to agree which will be shown on which TV stations and when, and whether any of them have to be at neutral venues.

      UEFA are hoping to play the remaining rounds of the Champions League and Europa League in August.
      I haven't seen anything yet about when next season might start, but I would guess some time in September.

      And this is all still subject to possible change, depending on circumstances.

    Repost for new article

    RMT

    Pope
    Trent, Alonso, Doherty, Robertson
    Saka, Pepe, Fernandes
    Aguero (c), Auba, Jota

    McCarthy, Sarr, Noble, Taylor

    1. Bossworld

      I don't think anybody knows until the fixtures are confirmed as being in the original order, and secondly, some team news.

      I don't see the point in double Liverpool defence as once that title is sewn up there'll surely be a mass exodus of their players from FPL squads, and we'll start seeing an average starting XI squad number starting in the 30s.

      Two playing keepers makes sense, I have the same two.

      Also not sure about Auba's commitment levels but again it's all pie in the sky stuff for now.

      Looks good. Get a SHU defender and Grealish and play BB.

    4. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Maybe Aguero won't want to play - his name always comes up among players who are reluctant to start playing

    If you are playing Fantasy Allsvenskan this season (which kicks off June 14th) make sure to give Melten's latest Community Article a good read. Essential stuff, packed with key stats, on the goalkeeping options available this season.

    Would you BB this V-FPL squad tonight for gameweek 27 ?

    Leno (McCarthy)
    TAA James Saiss (Marriapa Bednarek)
    Mané Sané Barnes Neto (Cantwell)
    Aubameyang (c) Jiménez Abraham

  9. MysticMac17

    I've been doing transfers while the Corona stuff has been going on and am left with this now:

    Leno
    Egan Stevens Baldock TAA
    Mane Salah Grealish Fernandes Martial
    Jimi

    Subs: Nketiah, Greenwood, Janmaat

    I kept exactly 3.2 ITB so I can do Jimi to Auba in one move. Is the double gameweek a trap or do you think that transfer is worth it assuming I captain Auba also?

  10. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    Saul nigez said he will announce his new club in 3 days..united??????

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I'd love that.
      But i think it'll be City, for some reason.

    2. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I'm betting this is a publicity stunt for some "club" he's opening. His contract runs until 2027 and his release clause is rumoured to be 140m.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 22 days ago

        2027 ??
        WTF !!

        Will we live that long ??

        😀

    3. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      He would probably start for any club in the world.

      United are far from the best clubs.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Im sure hed prefer the team with the most titles over a one season wonder

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          You need to up your trolling fella, it's absolutely sh*te 😆

            • 6 Years

            Well now the game has restarted he needs a new angle

            1. Berbs
              • 10 Years

              True 😆

      2. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years

        He's at a better club now.

    4. Poseidon.
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Be realistic. Kane and Sancho will set us back 150m as it is. Probably 100m of that will be funded by player sales. After years of underinvestment in the playin squad we’re not suddenly going to swing the other way

      1. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years

        "Us" 😆

        1. Poseidon.

            Lol yep.

  11. Ginkapo FPL

    Defender Mings, 27, also claimed players are "commodities in the game".

    Yes, yes they are. Welcome to employment.

    1. BNMC
      3 months, 22 days ago

      This isn't Tyrone Mings, is it? No way he's already 27.

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        According to the BBC he is

        1. BNMC
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Is it just me who imagined him to be a lot younger? So many were hyping him up as the future of England's defence.

          I mean, he still has time to impress Southgate, but still.

            He's been around for ages. He just looked good one season and got noticed.

    2. Ron_Swanson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      And he should be grateful to be one

    Bit confused as when I log into to FPL it lets you pick a new team? Is it that we can make as many changes as possible now? Or will it just revert back when it starts again as I notice “my team” page has gone?

    1. BNMC
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I'm not touching anything until the fixtures are added to the game.

    2. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅

      Try it and report back.

    4. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    5. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3 months, 22 days ago

      Sane

    6. BNMC

    I didn't TC a Pool player last GW in VFPL after the Salah injury.

    Whats my best TC option now ?

    A) Auba v NOR in GW27
    B) Vardy v WAT in GW28
    C) Kane v BOU in GW29
    D) Mane v AVL in GW29
    E) Martial v WHU in GW29
    F) Other who and when ?

    1. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Salah gw 29, home against Aston Villa?

      1. fc_skrald
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Ah sorry, you have Mane instead...

      Use a dice and the friendlies.
      Could easily be Salah.

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      C

    4. TopMarx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Salah 29 probably, Auba v Norwich also tempting

    5. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      A

  15. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Pope
    TAA / Laporte / Baldock
    Mané / Sané / Fernandes / Grealish
    Jimenez / Jota / Pukki

    Button // Ward / Hayden / Targett

    2FT this week:
    A) Mané/Baldock > Salah/Alonso
    B) Mané/Baldock > Salah/James
    C) Jota/Fernandes > Vardy/Neto

    I need to get Jota out somehow, although this week isn't necessarily the best to do so. Would love Vardy as per C, but not sure if sensible.

    Jota got a goal & assist vs. Man United in my friendly! (Jimenez two goals and an assist.)

    And captain choice?

    1. TopMarx
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I like Baldock to Alonso. and I guess Mané to Salah, but you could just stick with Mané.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        James was an option in part to being at the summit of your value table!

        It is worrisome seeing how involved in attacks Alonso is, though.

        You're right about Mané, but I may still do it. Salah's not let me down much so far.

        1. TopMarx
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          James also has a better points per 90 than Alonso - 5.92 v 5.41.

          I just have a feeling Alonso has been underperforming slightly and James overperforming (18% conversion rate).

          I like that Alonso is more involved in attacks. But it's close, if the £1.1m is needed elsewhere go with James.

          1. TopMarx
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights

            Alonso 😀

  16. BNMC

    I would captain Sarr tonight but I'm not that crazy...

  17. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    V-FPL. With Southampton home to Newcastle and Watford home to Aston Villa playing BB tonight - seems good opportunity I think.Cantwell v Leno/Auba only clash.

    Leno (McCarthy)
    TAA James Saiss (Marriapa Bednarek)
    Mané Sané Barnes Neto (Cantwell)
    Aubameyang (c) Jiménez Abraham

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      It's certainly not too bad of an option. You'll need some luck, but you never know.
