Fernandes haul raises the bar for top 10k’s most popular captain Salah

Bruno Fernandes‘ (£8.8m) blistering Gameweek 33+ display has put some early pressure on Fantasy managers who backed Mohamed Salah (£12.6m).

The Portuguese international came into the round as the second-most captained player inside the worldwide’s top 10,000, rewarding them with a 15-point haul, doubled up to 30, in Manchester United’s 5-2 win over Bournemouth.

In the end, it was 32.1% of managers at that level who handed him the armband for Gameweek 33+, raising expectations for Salah captainers.

As you can see from the image above, it was the Egyptian who earned the largest armband following for Gameweek 33+ ahead of a trip to Aston Villa.

Despite finishing second in the latest Fantasy Football Scout captain poll with 19.2% of the vote, just shy of 38% of the top 10k decided to captain Salah.

Such support for the Liverpool man from this season’s top-performing managers may encourage those who made the same decision, but the double-digit haul from Fernandes has certainly upped the ante.

Not least because of his effective ownership in the top 10k. Despite being pipped to the post by Salah for the most popular captain, fewer owners for the Egyptian at this level means Fernandes holds the largest sway.

His effective ownership in the top 10k for Gameweek 33+ stands at 120%, the highest of any player. Salah sits in second place on 97.8% effective ownership.

Anthony Martial (£8.2m) remains an exciting differential option for the armband, even at this lofty-level. Just 8.8% of managers in the top 10k captained Manchester United’s out-of-position FPL midfielder for the win over Bournemouth, yielding 28 points from that decision.

There was less traction for those who went with Marcus Rashford (£9.1m), however. The FPL forward, who operates on the flanks of the Red Devils’ attacking midfield, played well against Bournemouth, wrestling a penalty from Fernandes, but he managed only six points on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Sadio Mané (£12.5m) remains an extreme differential captain among the top 10k, earning just 4.7% backing for the armband at this level for Gameweek 33+.

As already mentioned, Salah still possesses plenty of potential to shake things up in the top 10k based on his ownership levels.

Kevin De Bruyne (£10.7m) and Fernandes are the overwhelming favourites in midfield, currently sat in 89.7% and 87.4% of top 10k squads respectively.

Accordingly, Salah is still playing third-fiddle to those two options with 58.6% ownership in the upper echelons of the worldwide Fantasy rankings.

The same is true of Martial to a similar extent. He now has double-digit hauls in each of his last two home matches since the Premier League restarted but less than half of the top 10k have him in their team. As the Gameweek 33+ deadline passed, the Frenchman was sat in 42.2% of teams at that level.

It is just Fantasy managers’ luck that the week which saw Aaron Wan-Bissaka (£5.5m) creep into the template of most-owned players in the top 10k was the one in which he conceded twice.

Just under a third of these managers decided to include the right-back in their Manchester United contingent, based on their recent defensive improvements. However, despite keeping clean sheets in every home match since Gameweek 25, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men let in two goals as they beat Bournemouth 5-2. It will be interesting to see what happens to Wan-Bissaka’s ownership at this level, especially with other Manchester United options such as Martial and Mason Greenwood (£4.4m) chalking up double-figure hauls this weekend.

There has been relatively little transfer activity in the forwards department among the top 10k. Raúl Jiménez (£8.3m), Rashford and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£6.5m) were the three most-popular forwards for Gameweek 32+ at this level and, indeed for Gameweek 33+. That said, the Everton man’s ownership did drop off by 11.3 percentage points.

Wildcards continue to fall in the top 10k, with just shy of 10% left to use theirs before the end of the season.

7.6% of them overhauled their squads for Gameweek 33+ making the Wildcard the most used chip for the round.

However, there was still a smattering of Triple Captains, Free Hits and Bench Boosts.

2.4% went for the enhanced armband, Salah the choice for half of those managers – hardly a surprise ahead of a home match against Aston Villa.

With Manchester United and Liverpool both facing triple-up worthy fixtures in Gameweek 33+, it is no shock to see some traction for the Free Hit chip.

3.6% of managers in the top 10k went for temporary overhauled squads, very much with a view to covering the Red Devils and Jurgen Klopp’s men in key areas.

As you can see from the graphic above, the majority of these Free Hitters did so to include Salah in their squads.

Despite the Egyptian still only owned by roughly half of top 10k managers, he was the most popular choice on Free Hits at the same level, chosen by 85.4%.

The most common triple-up on Liverpool assets by these managers appears to involve the Egyptian, Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.8m) and Virgil van Dijk (£6.5m).

Meanwhile, four Manchester United players made the cut for most-owned players in top 10k Free Hits, specifically Fernandes (84.8%), Rashford (65.2%), Martial (56.7%) and Wan-Bissaka (46.1%).

Also interesting is that these managers have largely used this opportunity to make the most of De Bruyne’s 90 minutes on Thursday evening to invest in Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) instead, who made a 32-minute substitute’s appearance against Liverpool and has attacking returns in every start since Project Restart kicked off last month.

    I am 0.1 short of doing Auba to Kane (C) ahead of Spurs vs Bournemouth in GW 34. Worth it for a -4? Other transfer would be : Mount (rubbish) out for Foden, the latter being my 3rd City asset. Feel like I have to be aggressive to win my mini-league. I am 50 points behind the number 1 in 6th place.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Do it

    2. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      I'd do it

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      How is it possible when auba is 11 and kane 10.9? Auba never under 10.8 so you must have pp at 10.9?

    4. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Auba to Kane is a sideways move imo. Auba could outscore Kane easily in the remaining games.

  2. Dele
    • 3 Years

    AWB + Jota >>> Laporte + Greenwood?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Yeah

    2. PrettyDick
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      no, not laporte. You don't want to spend 6.3 on a defender with zero attacking threat, who might ger rotated/chucked in the 55th minute when they're up 5-0 and who holds up a city slot. That's my opinion at least. More interesting options available

      How many out this week TM?

      Not a good week for a -8 🙁 Twas fun whilst it lasted!

        Plenty of -8's paid off if you got a United attacker.

  4. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Hi folks - advice appreciated please.

    Pope
    TAA / Doherty / Saiss
    Salah / KDB / Mahrez / Fernandes / Martial
    Jimenez / DCL

    Button // Femenia / Lascelles / Martinelli*

    The two players I might want for next GW & onwards are Kane (BOU!) and Greenwood. 0.2 short of a DCL/Jimmy straight swap.

    A) Martinelli > Greenwood
    B) Jimenez/[MID] > Kane/[MID] (-4)
    C) DCL/[MID] > Kane/[MID] (-4)

    C means selling Salah or KDB.
    B could mean Mahrez to Foden, for example.

    Which do you like more? Is Kane worth the hit? Kicker is main ML rival will have Kane.

    1. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      A. I don't think Kane is worth no hit.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      A But benching headaches incoming.

      1. PrettyDick
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        not really? DCL easy

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Thanks both. I agree, although sofa out for the Tottenham match. With the luck that's been flying around of late - I fear for myself.

    4. PrettyDick
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      A.

      Kane not worth a hit. If ML rival has him, you're already giving him a 4point lead with no way of gaining it (from the same player) anyways. And which mid would you drop? All of them have AT LEAST as good a chance as Kane to get double a digit haul.

    Pope
    TAA AWB Saiss
    Salah KDB Fernandes Mahrez
    Rashford Jimenez Connolly

    Henderson Cantwell Lascelles Lundstram

    1FT, 1.3 itb, (BB remaining)

    What to do here please??

    1. Cantwell >> Foden (play instead of Connolly)
    2. Something else??

    Any changes needed here??

    GtG??

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Give it 24 hours.

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Will do of course, just planning ahead 😉

    2. PrettyDick

      1

  6. TorresMagic™

    Keep Sarr or sell even with Norwich next?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      If no bigger fish, I'd give him this last one game. After that, chuck.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        (Bigger fish isn't relevant, not sue why I said that. Probably as I had fish for dinner.)

    2. Rotation's Alter Ego
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      There's just so many good midfield options around at the moment. Would make it hard for me to keep.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah, the big 3 then so many options for the other 2 including Son, Martial, City mid etc.

        1. The Knights Template
          • 6 Years
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          Willian?

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            29 days, 16 hours ago

            Probably not going there.

    3. Bookkeeper
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      sell, it's risky to keep when so many good mids around

    4. GreennRed
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Sell for who? He's not been great or even close to it.

    5. Bielsa's Bucket
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Better midfield options at his price

    6. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Sell.

    7. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      If you keep him will you start him?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Yeah, Connelly is perma bench atm.
        Benched him today but will probably autosub.

        1. Syd.
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          I would start him and roll over the FT

          Norwich have given up some of the players refused to go into the dressing room today and Watford need the win so they will be up for the game.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            29 days, 17 hours ago

            Will probably take a -8 depending on tomorrow.

    8. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Depends who for?

      Makes sense to put him up against a hapless norwich

    9. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Watford have 6 points from the last 33

      Sarr has 54 points for the entire season excluding the two (freak) Liverpool & Man Utd games

      He has to go TM

      (He will hattrick as soon as you sell him 🙂 )

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        He's bad but Norwich are worse, could end in tears

    10. Goonsquad245
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      I’m keeping unless one of two things happen:

      A) Early team news suggests he’s benched
      B) Phil Foden does not start vs Southampton tomorrow

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Are Newcastle that bad? They normally trouble City for some reason.

        1. Goonsquad245
          • 4 Years
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          If I have reason to believe Foden starts, I will take him at home to NEW over Sarr at home to NOR (although I do think NOR are a lot worse than NEW)

          Incidentally I think it’s just away where city struggle vs Newcastle. Remember a fair few poundings at the Etihad.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            29 days, 17 hours ago

            Fair call. Could have sold Sarr for Mahrez this GW but left that option open. Foden on the watchlist for sure.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          Didn't trouble them much in the cup.

    11. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Cheers all, didn't watch the game but result was expected.

    12. PrettyDick
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      depend on who you can get in instead. But I'd consider selling. He's looked really off it, and I wouldnt' be surprised if he was benched even. Also I doubt it'll be a hammering, rather an anxiety filled game with both sides lacking a lot in confidence.

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Good point. The 3 points more important than anything.

    13. El Presidente
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      If you kept him until now, definitely keep him vs Norwich!

  7. reo19uk
    • 9 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Not bad day today for first time since the resumption of the league. 71 points with 9 to play. Guessing though today a lot will have scored well

    1. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Just the 71 from 2 players

      Impressive

  8. mr. inconspicuous

    Would you do Rashford and DCL to Greenwood and Kane for -4? Already have Son

    1. PrettyDick
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      no

      1. mr. inconspicuous
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Just DCL to Greenwood?

    2. jamiejoe

      Yes

    3. wantsharptv

      Wow I came in to ask that question. Im thinking yes

      1. mr. inconspicuous

        I have the exact funds so has to be done tonight before rises

    4. GreennRed

      No.

    5. Danstoke82

      I’ve done these exact moves. Disappointed with Rashford’s return today, was expecting more

    6. acidicleo
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      i would do as greenwood is at par or a slight upgrade on rash and kane is a big upgrade on dcl..

    7. SHOOTER MCGINN
      • 5 Years

      Tempted to do the same. Very tempted.

  9. JJeyy
    • 4 Years

    Dont mind getting rid of Salah this week, but seems the standout captain gwk 35

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Same dilemma

      Salah > Sterling this week looks to have good upside (Salah’s away output this season when Mané plays is pretty bad)

      Maybe a FT Hokey Cokey back to Salah again for 35 then back to Sterling for 36 onwards?

  10. MattysFantasyFooty
    • 7 Years

    Fellow Alonso owners what is your plans for him?

  11. Long ago I drew a walrus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Just done Auba to Greenwood for free.

    Ederson
    TAA Doherty Boly
    KDB(c) Bruno Martial Son
    Jimenez DCL Greenwood
    Bench: McCarthy Saka Stevens Lascelles
    7.0 ITB

    Anything worth a hit?

    1. how now brown cow

      7 itb lol.

      Kane or sterling maybe.

        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Price difference between Auba and Greenwood is huge, lol. If anyone comes in they're replacing Jimenez in the starting line up probably

        1. how now brown cow
          • 5 Years
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          Dont see wolves v blades being high scoring

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            29 days, 17 hours ago

            Not a fan of Kane, but Saka to Sterling and Jimenez first on bench sound reasonable for a -4?

            1. how now brown cow
              • 5 Years
              29 days, 17 hours ago

              Benching headaches going forward the only issue.

  12. how now brown cow
    • 5 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Might be time to take a punt next week.

    Salah & jimenez -> mahrez and kane (c)

  13. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • 10 Years

    It shows how bad form is up front at the minute when Vardy is now the forward with most goals in the last 5 GW’s

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Should discredit GW29 really - it was before the restart.

      If you do, it's Greenwood!

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        GRU & Mason both on 3 in last 4 GWs

    2. MattysFantasyFooty
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      It’s interesting as you would think the fitness would effect defenders a lot more and that strikers would be to capitalise on this

    3. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Yeah but that includes his villa brace too

      Barnes comes up with more than 6 ppg for the same period....

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        There’s a load of midfielders with more goals bough - and that’s not even counting assists

        All the form is in midfield

    4. g40steve

      Party time once again.....keep it going.

    Who is liverpool's back up for TAA?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Neco Williams - youth. Was subbed on later on in the City game.

      I don't think he'll get many starts.

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        He's been playing well apparently. I was worried enough about him starting to leave TAA out of my FH team. Although money was the more important concern

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          He was very impressive in some of the cup games this season.

      Gomez

  15. acidicleo
    • 4 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    have 2 FT.
    No pressing issues..

    Thinking of burning 1 FT on Rashford to Greenwood to make some money for next GW.
    Good idea?

    A) Yes
    B) No

    1. Danstoke82
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      It’s a tough one but it frees up funds so I’ve pulled the trigger in order to double up on Son and Kane v Bournemouth. Really hope it pays off

      1. acidicleo
        • 4 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        hmm...to get kane i will have to sell jimenez..

    2. Balls of Steel
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Would seem Greenwood will be a favorite to play all games to the end of season now and taking his chances compared to Rashford atm, good move.

  16. Tempestic
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Kane shouldn’t go up tonight right?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      A lot of people will rush seeing Bournemouth just get pummelled.

      1. GreennRed
        • 8 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Himself nor Spurs have been good since the restart, Mourinho far too pragmatic. Need to let the handbrake off.

    2. Danstoke82
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Maybe not tonight but deffo tomorrow. I’ve pulled the trigger to avoid any rise

      1. Tempestic
        • 2 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Hmmm, hows DCL Doherty > Saiss Kane sound?

        Annoyingly 0.1 off Jimenez straight to Kane

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          29 days, 17 hours ago

          Yes that's good

  17. Goooo Rickie
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    WHO scores more next gw?
    Son (BOU) - 4
    Or
    Jimenez (SHU)

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Close. I'd factor in who you want the weeks after.

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Jimi

      1. Goooo Rickie
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        I'm thinking of doing Jimi to Greenwood then Grealish to Son for - 4, I then have the funds in midfield to bring in Salah/Sterling when needed.

  18. UnitedRthebest

    2. how now brown cow

      53 with 6 left. Get the feeling my utd points might be it though.

      1. UnitedRthebest
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Nice

    3. reo19uk

      71 atm on bench boost

      Pope, Dubravka
      Azpilicueta(12), Swiss(0), VVD, Taylor, Lascelles
      Fernandes(C)(30), Martial(14), KDB, Sarah, Son
      Greenwood(13), Kiminez(2), Joelinton

  19. DA Minnion
    • 8 Years

    Just after seeing Wan B to Rashford goal that was offside. Sickening as I had both.

    1. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Same here, but these things happen. Nothing beats the Mane TC anyway

    2. The Senate
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Same, completely infuriating

    3. Goooo Rickie
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Same had AWB.... *sigh*

    4. UnitedRthebest
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Had Rashford captain

  20. Flynny
    • 5 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Hi....2fts.....thoughts on:

    Salah and dcl to kane and foden or pulisic

    Hendon Mccarthy
    Taa maguire boly soy stephens
    Salah kdb bruno mahrez martial
    Jiminez dcl nketiah

    Thanks

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      I'm mulling over similar, but you happy to be Salah-less for gw35?

      I know kane tends to score v arsenal, but arsenal and spurs seem to be on opposite trajectories right now.....

      1. Flynny
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        I'm just worried about rotation with salah. So I'm unlikely to captain him for that burnley game in 35....

        I'm at 100k and keen to get to 50k so its probably a gamble worth taking for me.

  21. The Senate
    • 1 Year

    Dodgy VAR has cost me, in the Utd game alone:
    A goals conceded point for the incorrect BOU penalty
    An AWB assist and Rashford goal that was wrongly called offside.
    the BPS that Rash lost because of this.

    At least I capped Bruno!

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      U capped bruno and complain about VAR LOL

      His free kick shd have been disallowed

    2. Strchld
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Instead Martial got 2 lucky assist and stole those Rashford baps because that "offside" goal.

      Nice to own Rashford and not Martial.

      1. The Suspended One
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        I captained him

    3. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Bloody thing has cost Sheff Utd the PL Title this season

      They need to scrap it.

    4. reo19uk
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Ashford goal was just offside but the penalty was never a penalty agree with you on that 1

  22. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Hmmm seriously contemplating switching TAA to Digne for a punt now

  23. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 6 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Think I’ll place a bet on no Salah(c) involvement tomorrow. Just one of those weeks.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Can you even bet on that?

  24. Long ago I drew a walrus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    I'll ask this again tomorrow obviously but at this moment in time, who's the better option for the foreseeable future:

    Sterling vs Foden

    Crazy price difference but I wonder if they actually have quite similar points potential

  25. Kattdaddy_
    • 3 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Thoughts on what to do
    Pope
    AWB Trent Doherty
    Fernandes Salah Pulisic Martial
    Vardy Jimenez DCL
    Nyaland soyuncu scholleto cantwell

  26. ZTF

    Plan before this weekend was Ddg, Connolly to Ederson, Greenwood -4

    Shame that Greenwood played as hes obvs due a rest now but would you still go ahead with it?

    1. funnyoldgame
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      do you think Greenwood will be rested next week?

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        Taken off at 75 with the next game 5 days away, seems alright to me

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 16 hours ago

        Nope.

    2. reo19uk
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 16 hours ago

      No point to rest him atm, young lad on fire loving his football don't rest him unless he asks for 1 in my opinion atm!

    Free Hit thoughts. For those of you who still have your FH chip. What's your plan for using it? I had planned to wait for gw 37 or 38, but now I'm beginning to think leaving it so late could be a waste as predicting lineup becomes increasing more difficult.

    1. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Would say 60/40 yes

    2. Long ago I drew a walrus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      An argument could be made for every week left tbh. Most will play it in the last 3 though
      36 - nice fixtures
      37 - to play around fa cup rotation
      38 - fpl rockstar team news

  28. Berbs
    • 9 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    More reports that Thiago has agreed a 4 year deal with Liverpool and that they need to negotiate clauses with Bayern.

    Going to be boss when he signs for Man City..

    1. Tempestic
      • 2 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Think that’s a strange signing if true. He’s a baller don’t get me wrong but doesn’t seem very Klopp to be signing a 29 year old especially when we got Keita and Ox fighting for game time in the same position

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        So basically just keita then

      2. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        It's very unlike us to chase someone that age but he would he be a fine exception.

        He's on a different level to those 2. And Wijnaldum hasn't extended yet either.

    2. Syd.
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Oh you of little faith

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 17 hours ago

        If owners don't pay up they're in for a tonne of abuse

        He is elite, fits us perfectly, and is better than any CM we have, no excuse not to sign him

    3. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      You're gonna get him mate, good signing.

      1. Berbs
        • 9 Years
        29 days, 16 hours ago

        I hope so mate

        Seeing you guys with Pogba + Bruno, City with KDB is making me jealous lol

  29. Tempestic
    • 2 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Exact funds for DCL Doherty > Saiss Kane -4 and don’t want to be priced out by a Kane rise. Got a FH if emergency injuries come up.

    Annoyingly 0.1 off Jimenez straight to Kane.
    Thoughts?

  30. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    29 days, 17 hours ago

    Massive lol @anyone who thinks Bruno will be anything below 10.5 next season

    1. how now brown cow
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Don't get the obsession with next season prices. Got enough problems sorting out this week.

      1. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 16 hours ago

        People last week were claiming he would come in at 9.0 next season..

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Hope the prices come out nice and early, so I can post as many RMTs as possible
