Our selection for FanTeam’s seven-man Pursuit Mode

The Premier League returned with a bang in midweek, with goals in one match and controversy in the other.

Saturday’s fixtures may have to work hard in order to match that hype. But Europe’s largest daily Fantasy Football provider, FanTeam, are holding a huge contest to keep the interest high.

Their feature main event of the weekend will be the €100,000 GPP contest, which has a massive first-place prize of €20,000.

The seven-a-side contest will cover the four Premier League games being played tomorrow, starting with Watford vs. Leicester City at 12:30 BST and running through to the late fixture between Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.

The two matches in between feature Brighton hosting Arsenal and West Ham taking on Wolves.

For Fantasy managers used to playing only FPL, it’s not just the seven-man teams that mark the contest out as something different.

The event will be played in Pursuit Mode, which adds a whole new layer of Fantasy strategy.

Pursuit Mode means you will have absolutely no problem stuffing your team with big-name, big-money players because the overall budget is so high.

But being frugal with that budget conveys a major advantage, because the more you come in under-budget, the bigger the head start you’ll get. Why? Because you earn 0.05 points for each 0.1m saved.

That might not sound like much, but in the draft of the team I’ve been tinkering with today, the savings I’ve made equate to a head start of nearly six points.

It’s also one of the reasons I’m considering Brighton’s bargain basement midfielder Solly March, but more of that is tomorrow’s article.

Another key rule to remember is the Stacking Penalty, which means that if you decide to double (or even triple) up on defenders from the same team, you’ll receive fewer points for every extra player you select.

And the other major budgetary issue that needs mentioning is that your captain, as per, scores you double points. But as a result, he’ll cost you twice as much as his stated price, while vice-captains cost 1.5x more and bring in 1.5x the points.

All of that should make for a fascinating Fantasy challenge.

And as a special welcome offer, those who join FanTeam today and deposit €20 will get a free €20 entry to the €100,000 Premier League Main Event.

That’s nice work when you could win €20,000.

    Sane confirmed leaving, front three will be sterling aguero bernardo/mahrez then

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yep

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sane farwell match

    3. Forza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      1 month, 19 days ago

      Probably, but Pep will be Pep; KDB's played on the wing more than 60 times in his career and Zinchenko can play as an attacking midfielder.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I think mahrez has played there too and he was subbed early. Could be mahrez kun bernardo

        1. ManUnitedComeBack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Bernardo has not started on the wing in the PL this season. Mahrez has played on the left and KdB on the right, but not B.Silva. Could easily be the same starting XI, with Bernardo coming on after 60mins for Sterling and a swap of the wingers.

          And then KdB on the wing against Chelsea with Bernardo in midfield and Mahrez rested is a possibility.

          1. JJeyy
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yes Bernardo has started on the wing in the pl, including against watford when he scored a hat trick

            1. JJeyy
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Also against crystal palace

            2. ManUnitedComeBack
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 19 days ago

              You are right. My mistake, sorry.

    4. Big Ronnie
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Why would he not play him still as long as he is going to put the effort in

      1. JJeyy
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        may be subbed on, but dont see him starting

      2. Forza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        With the league almost gone and Leicester 7 points behind, he might start preparing for next season early.

        1. Big Ronnie
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Suppose Foden could play there as well

    5. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I expect Mahrez to start and come off after 60 mins for Sterling with Bernardo playing 90 mins. May see Sane subbed on and Bernardo dropped into midfield to replace KDB when KDB is subbed off after 60/70 mins.

  2. Mr. Mystic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Best keeper for remaining fixtures?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Pope they say

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      One starting with P

      1. Lev Yashin
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Patricio

      2. Forza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Good pick, Pepe Reina's old but could be gold.

        1. Tempestic
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          except he doesnt start

    3. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      TM is right - I'd recommend Peacock-Farrell.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Could have just said Pickford.

      2. Mr. Mystic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Haha, love it

    Thoughts on my WC draft? (0.0ib)

    Pope
    Trent Doherty AWB
    Mané KDB Son Fernandes Sarr
    Jiménez Jota
    Bench: Button, Lascelles, Taylor, Nketiah

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Looks pretty template.
      My old team has 7 starters.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Not sure about Jota, but golden if he hits the ground running. Rest looks decent, I went for Maguire over AWB for minutes, but much of a muchness.

    3. Jimbo-Jones
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Fairly heavy on Wolves, but v decent.
      Prefer Doherty to Saiss and Jota to Rashford, personally.

      1. Egg noodle
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        ? Do you mean the other way round?

    4. El Presidente
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Excessive Wolves IMO. They have great next 3 fixtures but from GW34 onwards...

  4. Berbs
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Watching Klopp's press conference where there's 19 people who we can visually see:

    17 are men and all 17 are white
    2 are women, 1 of which is British Asian and the other is white

    So it's all well and good promoting PR messages and getting retweets for cliche statements, but it'd be nice to walk the walk and implement equal opportunities. Same old then!

    1. Greek Freak
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Brace yourself for the 'political correctness gone mad' brigade!

    2. Berbs
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      These journalists are from: Sky Sports, BBC, Liverpool Echo, Goal, Telegraph, Mirror from the ones I recognise.

      All of which have put out cliche statements over the last few weeks.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yep, same old. Interesting to come back in say a year and see if anything has actually changed.

    4. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It will take 25/30 years to change. Because until these people retire, they won't be replaced.

      Also, need to remember that of the population of England and Wales (don't have data for N.Ireland and Scotland) about 83% is white and just over 50% is female.

      So a proportional split would have 17% non-white and 50% female. Of the 19 people then you would expect:

      3 to be non-white
      9 to be female

      1. sunnyh
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Yeah agree - its not industry that has to change, its the global culture. Not saying that it doesnt need changing to remove subconscious biases, but it will take a lifetime, more than a lifetime.

        1. Conik
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          So, "global culture" (the way everybody in the world thinks and acts) has to change until Berbinho is happy with the skin colour and genitalia of everybody in the room? I didn't realise he was officially head of the politburo!

      2. Conik
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I'd be interested to know if he's going to demand that primary schools start sacking women because they are overrepresented, or walking into casinos, throwing out people of asian origin for the same reason. If not, why not?

    5. Conik
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      How do you know there were three men and two women? Did you ask they identify?

      Berbinho's forehead has been promoting himself with cliche messages about equal opportunities but it'd be nice to see him walk the walk and desist with his hate filled anti-trans posts.

    6. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      First of all, it is a very small sample size, reaching conclusions based on 17 people are pointless. About 80% of the people in Britain are white anyway, so you are talking about a variance of about 2 people here.

      The point about gender isn't really relevant either in this context as sports (football) journalism is an area which men are more interested in and more likely to pursue careers on. Therefore 17 out 19 being men doesn't sound abnormal to me.

    7. The Mandalorian
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I know British Asians and their families encouraged them to go into specific professions like medicine but not football or journalism. How many ethnic minorities are Dr's or nurses in the UK. I'd like to see the statistics. Females the same overwhelm certain occupations. It will take another generation of 75 years to address equality.

      1. Conik
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        what do you mean address equality? Banning the British Asians you mention from encouraging their kids into medicine? Not a snarky comment. Genuinely curious.

    8. El Presidente
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It really took a toll on me this last few weeks, just realising how racist and biased people still are. On top of that, we live in a time where it has become normal to express racism, xenophobia and prejudice out in plublic... all this people were always here, but now they are socially unbound to any form of civility and cordial behaviour. Its really scary.

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 19 days ago

        men and women both have equal opportunity to go into sports journalism

  5. UnitedFan

    DCL or Pukki on WC?

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Teemu Pukki baby!

      1. UnitedFan
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Rationale?

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Decent fixtures, talisman and pen-taker.

          1. UnitedFan
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Good points. Cheers.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'd wait and see how good/bad Ev and Nor are, but DCL in the abstract.

      1. UnitedFan
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He did have some impressive stats before the season stopped tbf.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I think you might know which by 8 pm today.

    3. STHH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I'd go with Pukki. Actually, I am going with Pukki. I think DLC won't have anything to play for now. His momentum was possibly partly built on the fact that Kane and Rashford were injured and Ings and Callum WIlson both had a drop in form, so he was a genuine contender for starting the Euros. Now he is playing at a club that realistically won't get relegated nor challenge in Europe and will have one eye on recovery for next season.

      1. OleGGMU
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        what BS , Yeah Eve dont have much to play for and Yes Rash+Kane have returned.
        But neither have played in a long time.
        For his age , DCL has shown consistency, matched or outperformed Mo Salah as far as shots and movements in the box, and certainly will want to maintain his previous form to keep improving, repay the faith shown in him by Ancelotti and the club, will still be a contender for a euros spot as a 3rd striker ahead of ings and wilson based on his form, movement off the ball, high involvement in the box and his age. He deserves a chance internatiionally to gain some experience aswell to reward his efforts this season.
        DCL has plenty to play for
        he will only drop the gas if he wants to fade away as a one hit wonder period

      2. AuFeld
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Re the "nothing to play for" argument, pretty sure DCL gets paid a bonus when he scores goals. Also, he has the second best xG on target (non-penalty), right behind Salah.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Defence?
      Not sure Stevens worth extra over Robinson or egan at least if just rotation option? Have you BB'ed? If yes then don't need a playing keeper?

      1. merin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I BB'ed this week. Good point with Robinson and the keeper. What keeper would you get instead of McCarthy? Just the cheapest there is? If I get in Robinson and Button for Stevens and McCarthy, I've got 1.8 ITB. Anyone you would upgrade with the spare cash?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Is that enough to turn Saiss into Doherty?

          1. merin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Yes, just barely. If I do Saiss -> Doherty I have 0.1 ITB left. Do you consider Doherty a better pick than Saiss?

        2. OleGGMU
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          with that cash Saiss to Doherty wiv 0.1 spare is possible

        3. Jullepuu
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Saiss to Doherty with the extra cash. I would pick Krul from the cheap keepers

          1. merin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Krul is too expensive, I have max 4.0 ITB to spend on a keeper if I'm doing Saiss -> Doherty

    2. MikeRyko
      • 4 Years

      Kelly injured according to the BBC

        Thanks. Any other good replacement for max 4.2? It will probably be benchfodder anyway

            • 4 Years

            Already have him, as I did Stevens -> Robinson. Now my team looks like this:

            Pope
            TAA Doherty Fernandez
            KDB Mané(c) Son Fernandes

    chances of Lundy and Ozil both starting next match?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Ozil comments didn't sound positive.
      Lundy, if say 50/50. Expect him to get minutes as a sub if not starting.

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Both less than 50% IMO. Expect Lundstram to get 20-25 mins off the bench.

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      You have been unlucky with Ozil, his days appear to be numbered.

    4. lilmessipran
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Expect Lundy to start not sure about ozil

    5. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I think Lund is very likely to start, him playing the 90 minutes is a good sign. Before the break, he played 120 min in the FA Cup fixture midweek and went on to play against Norwich. He doesn't usually substitute out midfielders if he is happy with their performance.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Hopefully this is the case. Berge's performances have not inspired confidence in reviews I've read.

    6. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Ozil was dropped due to "tactical reasons", I think he has a chance to play. If not, his Arsenal days are surely over.

  8. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Been looking at who has been getting double digit hauls this season. 4 or more hauls at each outfield position:

    DF: TAA (5), Lundstram (5), Doherty (4),
    MF: KDB (8), Salah (7), Mane (7), Sterling (5), Mahrez (5), Son (5), Willian (4), Richarlison (4), Perez (4), Traore (4), Cantwell (4), Silva (4)
    FW: Vardy (7), Abraham (5), Aguero (4), Auba (4), Rashford (4)

    Notable mentions due to limited minutes:
    - Alonso (3)
    - Bruno Fernandes (2)
    - Barnes (3)
    - Jesus (3)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Useful to know. 1 or 2 surprises in there.

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Looking at a team like this:

        Pope (3)
        TAA (5) - Lundstram (5) - Doherty (4)
        KDB (8) - Son (5) - Fernandes (2)* - Traore (4)
        Vardy (7) - Abraham (5) - Rashford (4)

        Button - Cantwell - Lascelles - Robinson

        Question over whether I go Traore and Vardy or Barnes and Jimenez. But otherwise think it is an explosive team that has potential to go big.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Looks frightening. I'd go with Barnes and Jimi 'cuz Traore.

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Hoping alonso starts on sunday. Beast

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He is. Shame Lampard doesn't think so. Could be great for Chelsea if his was allowed to bomb forward and Kante covered him.

        1. Nabs Kebabs
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          He is brilliant going forward but cannot defend to save his life.

            Not sure if there is a correlation to his defensive abilities, but he has 10 matches of playing at least 60 mins. Of those 10 matches with mins greater then 60, he has 5 clean sheets.

        2. Klaren
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          He is great for fpl but not as much in real life, especially when playing in a back 4 rather than as a wingback.

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Great info. Take into consideration playing time and appearances.

    4. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Hmmm

      Makes me even more cross I ditched Barnes at the last minute.

      Interesting to see Tammy ahead of the ubiquitous Rash.

      Useful data cheers.

      Issue is some of these need context of timing in the season. Vardy, for example, had his form drop off a cliff so I’d be more wary of seeing him as a red hot points machine. Bruno looks to be a beast.

      Lunds will have also got much of his hauls earlier in the season but has been (slightly) less reliable of a haul more recently.

    FH Team, no chips left - advice greatly appreciated.

    Pope
    TAA, Aurier, Doherty
    Salah, Son, Fernandes, Mane
    Vardy, Jota, DCL

    (Button, Lascelles, Guendouzi, Simpson)

    Also considering Mane & DCL -> VVD & Kane (leaves a little spare to upgrade bench too).

    Cheers!

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      What is your rationale for FH this week? I'd stick with Mane and DCL.

      1. Catastrophe
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers.

        My current Team is in poor shape for GW31 but good for GW32 and onwards with a couple of transfers. Expecting I will benefit more from a FH this week than any other week - but who knows 🙂

  10. SHOWSTOPPERRR

    With janmaat out for the season is kiko nalled?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Don't know but can't dawson and Mariappa play there too?

    2. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Had Kiko before the break - he came back in as soon as he was fully fit. Think Pearson has played him whenever possible.

    3. Reg83
      1 month, 19 days ago

      i put kiko. reckon he is nailed; the other 2 are center backs not RB

  11. MarkyMarkovic

    What are the rules of the FH again?

    1. MarkyMarkovic
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Sorry, as in if I don't make any transfers in gw31 but use my FH
      do I have two transfers available in GW32?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Sadly not. Just 1 FT.

      2. Pipermaru
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        No, just 1.

        1. MarkyMarkovic
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Gargh
          so make guess / make my 1 FT in 31.
          click FH.
          then have 1 ft in 32

          1. Bossworld
            • 1 Year

            Your FT will revert.

  12. Slitherene
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Which player probably scores more?

    A) Son (WHU, shu)
    B) KdB (che, LIV) + 4 pts

    Won't captain Son.
    No value invested in KdB.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      4 in hand swings it for me.

    2. STHH
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I do think Son will get a lot of joy against both teams. Aston Villa had 17 shots against Sheffield United and failed to score. Fleck and O'Connell missing is huge for them. I'm moving away from them now. That said, KDB is doing well against everyone. He even got a goal and an assist away at Real Madrid.

  13. Disturbed
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Ddg and Taylor give you 0.6m spare cash over pope and Maguire. Just putting it out there.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Pope + 1 best of all.

    2. DandyDon
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Until Maguire scores a goal

    3. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      DDG covers Maguire/AWB nicely but Taylor doesn't cover Pope, Pope murders him to death. 😆

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        This is what I was trying to say

    4. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      You pay for what you get. Pope & AWB/Maguire far more likely to get Bonus and the latter two chipping in with the odd assist or goal.

      DDG is typically out-BAP'd by other United players & Taylor doesn't offer as much.

      1. Disturbed
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        So much for that idea.

  14. Dušan Citizen SPC Ch…
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    2 questions

    1. What is your view on Salah and Mane until the end of the season?

    I'm not sure if they are worth owning since they are expensive, but maybe they will play to break records.

    2. Is any big hitter striker worth owning now? I am even putting Vardy and Rashford in that category.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1. If you have one, keep.

      2. Vardy and Rash both worth having, more expensive than that... maybe not.

    2. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1. Either in your side until they get benched or taken off pre 70 mins. Then it is maybe time to put the money to better use. TAA might be better kept as he may lock in a cleanie if taken off any time past 60.

      2, The likes of Vardy, Auba and Kane have pens in their locker. If I go big I like to have that on board at least for an 8m plus striker.

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1. I'm pessimistic of the two. With the season locked, Klopp will probably limit the risk of any injuries. I'm expecting TAA + Robo will be rotated as well.

      2. IF Rashford is still on pens, his mins/xGI is only bettered by the likes of Aguero and Jesus. Worth it imo. I'm not too keen on LEI's remaining fixtures. Jimenez is another that has a great mins/xGI. DCL is a gem, second best xG on target (non-penalty), right behind Salah.

    4. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Think one of them - either will do - is worth it. I’ve just sold both of course having had Mo at 12.3 and Mane at 11.5 🙂

      Vardy is a yes for me. If you look deeper at fixture difficulty Leicester are right up there. Rash is a wait and see

      Holding Kun for now. I can see City belting teams but expect to switch him to Liverpool around 33.

    5. Reg83
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1. have to put 1- i put mane
      2. no- i put rashford but he is medium prized not big hitter

    6. El Presidente
      1 month, 19 days ago

      1. I definitely think TAA/Robbo and Mané/Salah will continue their persuit for individual honors. They also are very competitve with each other and with the tittle in the bag it will be even more so. It all will boil down to Klopp´s rotation policy - I think he will have one in place and will apply it.

      2. Rashford seems a no brainer but Im still worried about his condition, it has been a long time since he last featured. Im a contrarian by nature, and I really dont get how can people rule out players like Kane or Aguero. Kane will have all to play for and main man at Spurs and Aguero... yes he will be rotated but City´s last 5 fixtures are awsome and they are the team with the most xG of all, by some margin.

  15. Bobby Digital
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I'd like 20pts between Pukki and Cantwell.. Too much to ask?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      No harm in asking.

    2. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Half would be good value, anything more a bonus.

    3. Jon Walter's Hatty

      Hopefully it will be Du Da's day

    Who do people think is the best sub 6.2m forward for a WC. Currently have Deeney as a place holder

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Nketiah? Like Deeney also

    2. ZimZalabim
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      im looking at going 3-5-2 rather than pick one of these fwds but if deeney looks fit and motivated he could be a great option,not much choice though in that price range.

      1. GRIMANDI [formerly boring M…
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        I agree. Changed to 3/5/2 now myself with Eddie N

    3. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Chris Wood worth a shout. Should be on pens as well. WAT has a great run of fixtures. Deeney is a decent pick, however a third of his goals came from pk's which are unreliable. Nketiah could be a gem.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He's injured. No timeline on his return.

    4. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 19 days ago

      ayew was pretty consistent first half of the season

  17. ZimZalabim
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    I see everyone or most people atleast are going for Pope, and I also have had him in most drafts but burnley have 39 points and dont really have much to play for how much do you guys think that will impact performances ?
    They play a lot of teams either trying to avoid the drop or going for Europe, will they be as motivated as them ?

    What do you guys think ?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      The higher they finish the more money the club gets. Surely still means a lot for the players
      Different if it’s 2-3 games left but 8 games there’s always something to play for

    2. Reg83
      1 month, 19 days ago

      for Pope the GK shouldnt matter.. u think he will stretch less for a save bcoz they have nothing to play for?

  18. kamdaraji
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC team draft I have created so far?

    Foster Button
    Aurier Wan-Bissaka TAA Taylor Saiss
    Son KDB Fernandes Salah Duda
    Jimenez Jota Rashford

    0.0 ITB

    I'm not totally sold on Aurier or Jota yet but could be great value going forward if they hit form. Could replace Foster with Pope and get a cheap watford defender (or another 4.3 defender) instead of Taylor but don't want a Watford centre back ideally and also don't want Lascelles.

    1. kamdaraji
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Do I really need 3 playing subs going forward? no doubt Duda, Taylor and one of the other defenders will be benched most weeks

  19. RedWolf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on this WC team?

    Pope, Adrian
    TAA, Saiss, Doherty, Fernandez, Taylor
    Son, Mane, Fernandes, KDB, Cantwell
    Rashford, Abraham, Jiminez

    Ok? Or would you consider 442, dropping Abraham?

    1. UnitedRthebest
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Looks good. Dont drop Abraham Chelsea have good fixtures upcoming

    2. Christina.

        106.9, but more by being reactive and taking hits than being any good at this!

        few sources tipping Ozil to start

  21. TONY123
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Which combination would you rather have on WC?
    A) Pope, Saiss, Abraham
    B) McCarthy, Doherty, DCL

    1. kopite65
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A imo, close, maybe pope over mcCarthy swayed it

      1. TONY123
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers, just realised I can also have Krul ahead of McCarthy in B. Really close one.

  22. kopite65
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    first w/c draft
    de gea(set/forget) button
    saiss lascelles taylor holgate cathcart (no pool !)
    mane kdb son bruno cantwell
    jimi rash dcl
    def has some decent fixtures between them, chasing ml, feel i need the money in attack, thoughts advice appreciated, things can soon change, cheers

    1. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      A bit weak in defence, maybe downgrade cantwell to 4.2 to upgrade it a bit.
      Front 7 is very template but very good.

  23. Colby
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Sheepishly having to ask this question. I thought I read earlier this week that if we made multiple transfers for free for GW30 that when it had finished your squad would revert back to the one we had pre-gw30+. Did I pick that up wrongly and the squads we have in this gameweek will be the ones we’ll be playing with for the rest of the season?

    1. kopite65
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      yes

      1. Colby
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Cheers mate - haven’t a clue how I picked that up the wrong way.

        1. kopite65
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          free hit that reverses back to original team

          1. Colby
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Ah - good man. Thanks.

            1. kopite65
              • 5 Years

                • 9 Years
                1 month, 19 days ago

                Yes - wildcarding this week and saving the FH for another week.

  24. Cricket_Badger
    • 7 Years

    Is it actually 7 months and 7 days since Pukki scored a PL goal from open play?

    Saw that stat on Twitter but not sure of its authenticity?

    1. kamdaraji
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      no better time to start scoring again!

      1. Cricket_Badger
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        He's in my WC draft so I'm hoping he breaks his duck tonight too!

        1. kamdaraji
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          i think he will

  25. marzo
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on these options for next GW.
    Pope (WAT).
    TAA (CRY), Maguire (SHU), Saiss (BOU).
    KDB (che), Fernandes (SHU), Salah (CRY) (c), Barnes (BHA).
    Auba (sou) (vc), Jota (BOU), DCL (nor).
    Stek, Holgate (nor), Dendoncker (BOU), Stephens (ARS).
    1 ft, 3.2m ITB. WC, BB left.

    1. Save the FT. BB later possibly the week after or else after the WC.

    2. Stek-> Allison + just Bench Boost next GW.
    Allison, Holgate, Stephens, Dendoncker for BB.
    WC then in 32 or 33 and just focus on 12/13 starters instead of BB.

  26. pingissimus
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Oooh

    O'Connell apparently nearly fit - there goes Robinson as a 4.0. Does Fleck back change Lund's status?

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Think Lundstram starts over Berge if Fleck is back.

    2. El Presidente
      1 month, 19 days ago

      MAybe not for the next game but Im sure he will be rotated going forward

  27. trinzoo
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Sane news might be good for Sterling owners, right? ;D

    1. I Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Kind of sounds like Pep might not play him doesn't it? Maybe Mahrez and Sterling both start again with Bernardo in midfield.

    2. TONY123
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Yeah. I think City will start with a front three of Sterling Aguero & Mahrez vs Burnley.

      1. trinzoo
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Good, good, captain Sterling here!

      2. El Presidente
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Bilva Aguero Mahrez

    3. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      There is still some risk as Pep might play Bernardo/Mahrez and rest Sterling for Chelsea and FA Cup game. Sane news is definitely promising news though. With Sane out of favour, Sterling should at least get minutes in the 2nd half if he doesn't start which might not be too bad.

  28. BremerHB
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    WC Team chasing first place in my ML:

    Pope (Button)
    TAA Doherty Maguire (Lascelles, Egan)
    Son Fernandes Martial KDB (Barnes)
    Auba Jimenez Tammy

    Thoughts? Improvements? Interested to see how Martial plays this evening.

    1. Klaren
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      I guess it depends on your ML rival's team as well but I wouldn't go Auba instead of one of Salah/Mane.

    2. pingissimus
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Really nice

      Prefer Vardy over Auba - simply plays for a better team and has better fixtures imo. Not sure where I'd spend the cash. VVD over Maguire could happen. After 32 I quite fancy double Liverpool defence.

  29. Colby
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Henderson to go?
    I’ve had Dean Henderson in my squad for much of the season and he’s been a revelation. But looking at Sheffield’s remaining games I’m thinking it’s time to ditch him. With only Wolves and Liverpool looking the toughest opponents for Burnley for the remainder of the season is Pope the best mid-price ‘keeper to go for?

    1. El Presidente
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Im keeping, best GK in the league this season he´s going nowhere

      1. kamdaraji
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Foster over Pope imo

        1. El Presidente
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Foster is more appealing than Pope probably, Watford is top of fixture ticker between GW34-36

      2. Colby
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Aren’t you a bit concerned about their fixture difficulty though? Even Villa had a lot of chances against the Sheffield defence?

        1. El Presidente
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I dont think their fixtures are that bad regarding clean sheet potential tbh... and their defense is their strongest fixture. I just dont see the clear upside of that swap

          1. El Presidente
            1 month, 19 days ago

            *feature

      3. El Presidente
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Also I got him at 4.7 so efectively it does not make sense to sell him for 5.0 and swap for a 4.9 keeper now

        1. Colby
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Thanks for your thoughts. I’m in-between selling and keeping him. His form has been outstanding this year.
