Scout Notes

Wood’s aerial threat bodes well for Brighton match as Burnley get behind Pope

Norwich 0-2 Burnley

  • Goals: Chris Wood (£6.1m)
  • Own Goals: Ben Godfrey (£4.4m)
  • Assists: Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m), Erik Pieters (£4.2m)
  • Red Cards: Emi Buendía (£6.0m), Josip Drmic (£5.3m)
  • Bonus Points: Pieters x3, Phil Bardsley x2 (£4.3m), Wood x1

Two red cards for Norwich were perhaps the key factors in Burnley’s attacking assets leaving a little to be desired by their respective Fantasy managers in Gameweek 37+.

The favourable meeting with the Canaries sparked interest players such as Chris Wood (£6.1m), Jay Rodriguez (£5.7m) and Dwight McNeil (£6.0m) in the lead-up to Saturday’s match but the New Zealand international was the only one from that trio to come away with any attacking returns.

In bizarre circumstances, Norwich found themselves reduced to nine men before half-time, thanks to recklessness shown by Emi Buendía (£6.0m) and Josip Drmic (£5.3m).

Their sendings off made this the first Premier League game to see a side suffer two red cards in the first half since 2015, highlighting how much of an enigma the opening match of Gameweek 37+ proved to be.

As a result of the man disadvantage, Daniel Farke’s men lined themselves up in exceptionally compact formation for the second half, effectively lined-up in two banks of four with no striker, in a 4-4-0 formation. That left Tim Krul (£4.6m) to do what he does best, producing seven saves across the 90 minutes.

“You know it’s going to happen. They just went to two banks of four and defended their box very well.” – Chris Wood

That obviously made it harder for Burnley to capitalise on the red cards, much to the frustration of those who had backed the Clarets hoping for more explosive hauls.

There will be some that say the freak nature of the 90 minutes makes it hard to take too many FPL lessons from, but there were a few nuggets worth analysing.

Firstly, this game highlighted once again that Wood is the clear aerial threat for Burnley and the most likely to get on the end of crosses into the box.

We chose him for the Gameweek 37+ Scout Picks on the basis that Norwich had recently been susceptible to headed attempts on goal. He may not have chosen to attack Johann Berg Gudmundsson‘s (£5.9m) first-half cross with his head, but netting it with a bicycle still demonstrates what Wood is capable of in the air.

“There was a chance he would miss all the games, so he’s done ever so well to get back out there.” – Sean Dyche

That will be encouraging for those who brought the Burnley forward in for Gameweek 37+ as he may also be useful on the final day of the season.

The Clarets face Brighton next Sunday who, between Gameweeks 30+ and 36+ conceded 23 headed attempts, third only to Norwich and Newcastle.

Those who invested in Rodriguez can certainly consider themselves unlucky not to see him come away from Carrow Road with a decent haul as his blank was not for want of trying.

In the 20th minute, the former Southampton man cut through the middle, after good hold-up play from Wood, before slicing wide.

Rodriguez then fired a powerful shot at Krul in the 38th minute, only to see the goalkeeper meet it with another good save. Had it gone in, Wood would have been credited with the assist.

Just after the hour-mark, Rodriguez nipped in at the front post to get on the end of an Ashley Westwood (£5.5m) corner, Krul on hand to make another instinctive stop.

His final opportunity came in the 83rd minute when an intricate piece of passing play set Rodriguez up on the edge of the box. He curled a high effort towards goal that looked destined for the net, but the Krul stretched sufficiently to catch it.

McNeil also had opportunities to get involved in the goals and his owners will also be cursing Krul’s heroic efforts to keep the score respectable at Carrow Road.

The young winger had Burnley’s first real chance of the game as he dropped the shoulder to lose Buendía in the middle, drove forward but fired over the bar.

He went a lot closer in the 41st minute when won a free-kick on the edge of the box. Despite his tender age, McNeil assumed responsibility for it, his direct effort deflecting off the wall and forcing a palmed save from Krul, produced as he fell to the ground from the power.

However, this match highlighted perfectly how difficult it is to pinpoint the assisters for Burnley. Wood looks central to their cross-heavy tactic, while McNeil is one of three players who provide the service. Gudmundsson’s return to the team on the right flank was the reason Wood found the net, while Westwood’s set-piece duties also make him another source of crosses.

Nick Pope (£5.1m) owners could not be displeased with what they saw on Saturday evening, as Burnley helped him achieve a 15th clean sheet of the campaign.

They might have been a little miffed that the Clarets’ shot-stopper was just one save short of an additional point, but against a Norwich side that has not troubled anyone since the restart, nobody was really expecting more than the standard total of six.

His owners would have been likely to start Pope again in Gameweek 38+ anyway but there were some interesting post-match quotes from Wood, who acknowledged that the entire Burnley squad is aware of how close he is to getting a hand on the Premier League’s Golden Glove award.

With that in mind, he made a empassioned commitment to helping Pope get another clean sheet in Gameweek 38+ when Brighton come to Turf Moor. With little left riding on that game other than Pope’s chances of winning that award, could we potentially see an even more defensive-minded performance next Sunday?

“As a team, we’ll be fighting like hell for him. He’s an outstanding goalkeeper. Hopefully, we can get him one more so he can get his hands on the Golden Glove.” – Chris Wood

If that were to be the case, Erik Pieters (£4.2m) could be a budget differential to consider on the final day of the campaign.

He came away from the Norwich game with a double-figure score having kept a clean sheet, providing an assist for Ben Godfrey‘s (£4.4m) own goal and securing all three bonus points.

Despite Gudmundsson reclaiming his station on the right of midfield, Pieters was able to keep his place in the team following Charlie Taylor‘s (£4.4m) hamstring injury and is likely to be in consideration for the left-back berth once again in Gameweek 38+.

Recent outings in midfield had clearly inspired Pieters ahead of this Norwich game, as he ventured forward to provide width, especially in the second half, going close to scoring himself just after the interval.

Norwich City XI (4-2-3-1): Krul; Lewis, Klose (Zimmermann 46′), Godfrey, Aarons; Tettey (Vrančić 90+3′), McLean; O Hernández (Idah 86′), Buendía, Cantwell (Rupp 76′); Drmic.

Burnley XI (4-4-2): Pope; Pieters, K Long, Tarkowski, Bardsley; McNeil, Westwood, Brownhill, Gudmundsson (Brady 59′); Wood (78′), Rodriguez.

    Things I would like to see from FPL next season:

    1) Deadline move back an hour (i.e. two hours before first kick-off)
    2) Defensive player pricing (i.e. Pope at least £5.5m, Foden, Greenwood at £9m+, KDB, Salah, Mane at £12.5m+, Burnley defence at £5.5m+, Arsenal defence at £5.5m+, Jimenez £10m+, Ings £10m+)
    3) Reconfiguration of what a 'forward' is in FPL to make players such as Rashford, Firmino, Kane, Lacazette, more viable picks in FPL. This could be through changes in the bps system, through recategorisation of other players, changes in the points system, or a combination of all of these.

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years

      some of your price points are crazy!
      Foden and greenwood at 9mil?!?

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yep. Makes it much harder for everyone to just go and get them in. I would like to make FPL managers really think. By pricing defensively it forces hard decisions. Otherwise you can see everyone going Pope, KDB, Salah, Arsenal defender, Greenwood, Foden etc.

        Appreciate some people will disagree with defensive pricing.

        1. Fred54
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Over pricing limits options, makes game more boring.

          1. diesel001
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Makes other options more viable. That Southampton midfielder. That Brighton forward. That Leeds defender etc.

          Having players like Greenwood and Foden so cheap isn't great, but it's not always easy to know pre-season that they'll suddenly explode onto the scene.

          Pricing them so high isn't fun either.

          £7.5-£8m would probably be a fairer price

          1. Lindelol
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            exactly

    2. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      They didnt know that Lundstram never played as CB and you expect them to fine tune who is forward and who winger\mid ?

    3. jamiejoe
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      90 mins would stop team leaks.

      The team sheet is submitted about 75 mins before KO I think.

    4. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I’d like to see the deadline moved forward and save us a lot of grief!

    5. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Jiminez and Ings would have very few owners at that price, would be vastly over pricing them.

    6. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      #1 Understand it, but less fun

      #2 Will stop differentials. People will stick with known quantities and not jump on punts.

      #3 Don't get this? Forwards get mega BAPs for a goal and that alone is enough of a boon for them. For the ones you have listed, it is not the games fault that Kane drops back, Rashford is on the wing, Firmino creates space, or Lacazette is not nailed.

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        As I said, you can recategorise others (e.g. Salah, Mane, Martial, Sterling) who play in similar positions (is Rashford really playing a different position to Salah?). There is more than one way to do it.

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          The difference between Salah & Rashford is that Salah is barely ever going to play as a CF (even though he has on occasion).

          Rashford absolutely could & the same goes for the others you mentioned.

          1. diesel001
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Then FPL is basically rendering those forwards as crap picks. So immediately limiting the player pool. FPL ought to be, IMO, trying to make the viable player pool as wide as possible.

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

            Where a player could play isn’t really relevant though. If we had a striker who could play as a defender when needed, should he be classified as a defender then?

            Rashford has played attacking winger all season and he 100% needs to be classified as a mid next season as long Mane and Salah are still mids. Same goes for Aubameyang.

    7. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      1 reasoning behind it?
      2 This would shoo away so many casuals who won't be able to fit more than one or 2 of their favourite players so very unlikely
      3 Good point but probably difficult to implement

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        1) FPL is a worldwide game. Trying to make it fairer by not letting people have access to team leaks before the deadline.

        I have benefited loads from early team news and appreciate it is part of 'getting an edge'. But if you look through time, in any field, when the landscape changes, then regulators etc. react to it.

    8. The Knights Template

      A metric that rewards defensive midfielders

      1. Marvin the Great
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Yes. Kante was arguably the best player in the league two years running but FPL had no way to recognise this.

      2. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I've been moaning about this for years. What is the point of having a Kante, Xhaka, Matic or a Rodri in your team. I've been suggesting two clean sheet points for the "defensive labelled" midfielders but I would happily accept any sensible suggestion that brought them into the game.

        1. Marvin the Great
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Perhaps tackles won or interceptions could be better rewarded for midfield players.

          1. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Yes, Ndidi would be great if this was introduced.

          2. Greek Freak
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            UCL fantasy have points for every 3 balls won. It's actually not a good solution even though it sounds good on paper - the defensive mids consistently get 5-6 points and on average outscore the attacking minded ones if they don't score every game.

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

        Tackles and interceptions is probably the best metric. If you got a point for every 3 then it would make quite a difference.

        This season Ricardo Pereira tops tackles with 112 and top midfielder is Ndidi with 112.

        It would boost defender scores by 20-30 points, though worth noting VVD averages 0.9 tackles a game so might not be many games that get points in reality.

        Hence adding interceptions to get more reliable points. Ndidi has 78 for a nice round 190 ‘defensive contributions’

        This could give up to 63 extra points but in reality would more likely be 30-40. Ndidi is on 81 points so getting to around 115-120 would put him on par with other Leicester players

        You can play with the data here (https://www.premierleague.com/stats/top/players/interception)

        1. TomSaints
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Though Ndidi is the top midfielder with these stats, would maybe need to be every 2 defensive contributions as then Ndidi is probably looking at 150-160 points. Great numbers but not Salah esque. Maybe 9m pricing

    9. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I would love to see autosub removed and then being allowed to use your subs during the game.

      It will completely take away the element of luck and make things much more tactical.

      1. ppv
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Nice idea. So I could bring Bardsley on when one of my defenders is having a bad day? But while still on pitch?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Yes, real time subs.

          1. ppv
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            If someone has gone off or match finished too late?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 2 days ago

              That would be an issue but far too many people have more than one team. I bet the amount of people which do not take the game seriously outweigh the ones who actually are online on matchdays.

    10. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I would also like to see the limit of players from teams go down to 2.

      This will spice up the game considerably.

      1. ppv
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        But would render Greenwood or Foden a waste of a spot

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 2 days ago

          That is why you have a bench and eliminates luck.

          1. ppv
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            How about being able to switch C to VC

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Nah.

            2. Hakim Ziyech
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Now you’ve got my attention 🙂

              Yes please! I want this to be done automatically if the captain blanks. It will make the VC even more important

            3. Old Man
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              retospective - can't have anything of that ilk.

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

        I would be even more drastic and cut it to 1 player from team but it never going to happen.

    11. FeverPitch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Perhaps categorising centre backs and full backs/wing backs differently - so you have to have at least one cb etc. And maybe 4 points for a defender assist? I think the pricing is ok atm - knowing when to ditch highly owned players is a key part of the interest. I wouldn’t want top 10k effective ownership to nearly always be under 100 with all players, for example

    12. ItOnlyTook9Years
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I think having 8 attackers rather then mid and fwd.
      And 5 defenders (includes defensive miss) might make it interesting

      1. FeverPitch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Categorising defensive mids as high priced defenders might be an interesting way to make them relevant

        1. Murder on Zidane's Flo…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, don't mind this, although the issue would become 'what is the threshold/criteria for identifying a player that should be categorised as such'? The class of players that aren't quite defensive enough will become the new players that are left out. It would likely still increase the pool of usable players though, so I'd be in favour.

          Having played some other fantasy sports games it's really apparent to me that fpl suffers from being too simple. The scoring methods are very limited. I'd like to see the scoring completely revolutionised and see opportunity for other contributions to be valued (not holding my breath of course as appreciate I will be in the minority and it would require plenty of work on the coding/stats end).

    13. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I ticked the "good post" box. It would make a great hot topic.
      Changes I would like accepting it won't happen:
      1) No changing rules no matter what the circumstances during the season. (Unlimited tfrs)
      2) Getting rid of the captain. (Just punters luck)
      3)Buying a WC. (16 points cost) Some people can have horrible luck. Scrap the 2 WC's we get atm.
      4) No chips except Free hit (12 points cost) (Max 2 only)
      5) Change the deadline to avoid getting unfair advantages over casuals with team news.
      6) Categorize players correctly (Salah for example)
      7) Free tfr for red flagged (injured only) players.
      8) Improve the Bonus point system.
      9) Have hard and fast rule relating rises and drops. (maybe have one day in a week dedicated to price changes.

      I think that is enough.

        3 months, 2 days ago

        Congratulations you've taken all the fun out of FPL.

        The captain will always be there. It is a nice tool to chase and also to inject a fun decision on a weekly basis. It increases variance too but like it or not, that is the game we're playing.

        The only one I agree with is changing the deadline to 2 hours before (or 5 mins before). I think price changes are good and add some skill to the game although the lack of transparency sucks.

        I like the chips right now.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Agree with most of this - the chips are OK as they are.

        2. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          It is only an opinion bud. I understand what you say too. I am not that fussed about chips but the one I hate is captaincy. OK, if you are on the right end of it. If anything has hurt my rank it is the captaincy pick. It is not sour grapes and there are a few of us who don't like it.

        3. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Oh sorry to add; you only like one? Changing the rules? Hard and fast rules about price changes? Categorizing players correctly?

    14. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Hard disagree on fringe player pricing. I think having Foden or Greenwood like youth options at sub 6.0m is good. They aren't nailed on so if they're priced so aggressively nobody would buy them over proven assets from other teams.

      1. diesel001
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        They'll be fairly nailed next season unless Man Utd buy Sancho etc. So you put them at 6.0m for fairly nailed players in two the most attacking teams in the PL. Then you wonder why everyone has Foden and Greenwood and the game is too template.

        Demarai Gray is an example of a fringe player. But with Silva leaving and OGS sticking with Greenwood, they are no longer fringe players.

        It is pretty obvious what the template picks are shaping up to be next season already - Pope, TAA, Arsenal defender, Wolves defender, Salah, KDB, Fernandes, Foden, Greenwood.

        That is 9 players locked in already. FPL should be looking to make such a template unviable with the initial £100m budget.

          The initial player costs are very important.
          The like of Greenwood and Foden will be interesting.

        3. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          3 months, 2 days ago

          Greenwood and Foden will be 8.5m at least as they’re in and around the first team squad. Nailed Wolves/Arsenal defence will be 5.5m min, TAA likely 7.5 or 8m, KDB and Fernandes likely 11m+ and 10m+ respectively.

          I don’t think that’s out of whack with how FPL have managed price adjustments previously.

          Problems come where there is massive overperformance from a Kane, Alli, Greenwood, Mahrez, Vardy etc. I don’t think FPL often make horrific price decisions based on what they know at the start of a season, but maybe the back up/youngsters from the top sides should be priced higher on the off chance they end up in the first team doing well.

      In the swedish fantasy game we have some interesting chips.

      Park the bus - all defenders get double points
      Forward - all your forwards get double points
      Two captains - that explains itself

      1. The King Wilson return
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        The swedish fpl also rewards every player for having a good game through attacking and defensive bonus points, not limited to just 3 best

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

        Must be interesting to play with those, I'm all for throwing in extra things like this to vary the gameplay!

      3. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year

        Swedish chips are the best tbh

    16. Jamizz
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      The game having a deadline to register a team is also important. Take for instance not being able to set up a team after GW 10. It put a stop to managers who create a new team every GW just to appear at the top for the GW.

      1. Klaren
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Increasing number of members is a good thing for them so they wouldn’t do that.

      2. La Vida Latte
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        True!

      3. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I don't mind new teams created for the week .... was going to suggest auto-deleting them but it would probably have negligible effect on the total number of players

    17. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Id' like to see auto-subs get 1/2 points

      Maybe drop the C / VC and have two players each gw nominated for double points (two captains)

    18. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Mario Kart vs F1

      Chips and Captains vs No fluff

    19. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd like an additional "legacy league" ... You retain you team and value year on year but those teams would be excluded from the normal league (current TV is 111.5m). Only one legacy team allowed per player

    20. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Agree with the prices. They need somthing to kill off the template manager and make people think for themselves instead of being spoonfed by twitter and other social media as it is getting out of hand now.( worse thing about the game for me as a long time player) .

      Would love the man in the stand baps it means a little less focus on stats but it will never happen.

      Increasing the prices and make it so people have to decide themselves a bit more would be welcomed.

      Definitely move deadline back for sure. Not fair on users in a different time zone for one.

      Make Salah, Mane etc forwards because that's really what they are .

      No chips allowed for double gws too . Makes FPL even more of a lottery

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Iv

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Ahem. I was going to say I think one really easy way to increase diversity in teams and make managers think more is to limit the number of players from each team to two.

          Would really change so-called template teams and increase variance. And would be really easy to implement

          1. Pumpy Pro
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            I like this idea a lot

    21. HashAttack
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I'd like to see forced team management ... you get -8 each week and 3 transfers, before any further hits deduction
      It's up to you to make use of those 3 transfers, if you don't you still get -8

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

      Just a few ideas, to make it more fun:

      1) Injured players should lose some of their transfer value (buying and selling).

      2) Immediate bonus points for three consecutive starts.

      3) Newby January signings should all arrive at a budget price.

    23. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      i´m not disagreeing but the problem of pricing is that it is a prediction and thereby always inherent it will be open for mistakes which is the hard part of FPL players life, to identify those. Yep, you can price them higher but what about SHU for instance, before the season what was the reason they priced them so low? So if you hike up Burnley defenders to 5.5, then West Brom def at 4.5 suddenly could be next seasons SHU, you don´t know, i don´t know and the ones setting the prices can´t know.

      I think they have been more proactive in that the 4.5 options in defence ha been lesser than it was, the attacking defenders almost exclusively got 5.0 price tag before season (not including Lundstram but that was not just a pricing mistake but also classification error) and a lot of mid priced options from mid table teams also priced a bit more steep.

    24. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Two big ones for me:

      - team of the week accounts for hits taken

      - price rises only happen on deadline day when game updates

    25. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Percentage of points taken off from bench players too

      Realistically they have limited time to get the game out so i don't expect many changes

  2. Valar(Keith)
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Martinez
    Robertson Gomez Pieters
    Salah Son Kdb DSilva Soucek
    Auba Jesus
    With Greenwood and Lamptey on the bench.
    First draft of many done. Looks pretty good

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I vowed never to own another mourinho player, so I'd have martial over son!

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Going with no Manutd players since I'm chasing.. else I'd keep martial in for sure.

      2. Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        However, Son + Jesus to Sterling + Ings works.. hmmmm

        1. jason_ni
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          tricky one.. with city you can't tell who will get the points.. son / Jesus could still ourscore sterling / ings.. hard to call.. go.with your gut!

      3. FALSE PROFIT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I am selling Martial for Son (even though I have been burnt by him big time) reaso being: ManU getting tired. Martial under performs away from home. Son playing further forward.

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years

      Yep, if only robbo is TAA

      1. Valar(Keith)
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I've actually found Robertson looking more threatening than Taa since the restart. Even if I had the spare cash I'd go Robbo atm

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          3 months, 2 days ago

          I also plan to go with Robbo for this reason, plus he's only 5.5% EO in the top 10K vs. 61% for TAA.

    Vardy to Jesus worth -4?

    1. Fred54

      No.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

      Could be.

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Thought so

    4. Amey
      • 2 Years

      Maybe.
      Norwich give lots of chances to strikers

  5. Ajax Hamsterdam

    3 months, 2 days ago

    would you keep vardy on a fh team?

    1. Fred54
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      If they win today, definitely consider keeping.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years

        thanks

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

      Probably not, when the likes of Aubameyang, Jesus & even Rashford in the same match have better attacking fixtures.

      Still, Vardy could come away with a goal.

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I would. Golden boot chasing. Unless its for Auba or jesus -higher ceiling maybe

      1. Fred54
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        UCL chasing, Man Utd def poor.

    4. Amey

      3 months, 2 days ago

      No

    5. Ajax Hamsterdam

      thanks all and gl

    6. Studs Up
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 2 days ago

      No, forget about this golden boot chasing crap. Go for the player who has a higher probability of scoring.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Vardy it is then 🙂

  6. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years

    Anyone else avoiding players they don't like? I couldn't bring myself to get Deeney for example, he gets on my wick.

    1. el polako
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Would have to call my team Flinstones with this trolgodyte in it.

    2. Gregor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I don’t care for Deeney either but then I brought him in anyway last season and he duly got himself sent off!

      1. el polako
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Roughing up Arsenal in DGW, remember this.

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yeah...I haven’t had any Watford player all season. I use this approach for players who have disappointed me in the past on more than 1 occassion e.g Willian

    4. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Rashford. Couldn't bring myself to do it on WC.

  7. LIARS POKER
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Do we think Aubameyang will be reclassified as a midfielder next season?

    Has played pretty much every game this season on the wing similar to Mane/Salah

    1. lilmessipran
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Nah

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      If they reclassify everyone who plays on the wing as a midfielder then we ll be left with just ings, jiminez and wood upfront lol. If anything they should reclassify all of salah/mane etc into forwards

    3. Marvin the Great
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Salah and Mane as forwards would make more sense in my opinion.

  8. Ajax Hamsterdam

    martinez (button)

      Solid team !
      Except there are two Dilva 😉

      One has to be Antonio right.

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam
        • 6 Years

        yes Amey you re right. thank you

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam

      antonio instead of d silva d'oh

    3. Bruno Commando

    "Nick Pope is good between the sheets" is the best bit of commentary I've heard in years.

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      *"pretty special".. makes it even better.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Oh yes, you're right.

    2. Marvin the Great
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Do you remember the days of Seaman rushing out and spreading himself?

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Seaman was all over the ball.

        1. Marvin the Great
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          They say Seaman was a big presence in the dressing room.

        2. jason_ni
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          slapping balls into the box.. and seaman would come rushing out to collect.

    3. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Top 3

      “Henry....sidestepping one, sidestepping two... that is brilliant. That is simply stunning. Genius at work. His name is Thierry Henry”

      “Corner taken quickly ORIGI”

      Rosicky on his left hand side, Fabregas joining in, worth a shot? Surely, Ohhhh. DYNAMITE. Absolute Dynamite!!!

  10. Bruno Commando
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    On FH now, what's the better option?

    A) Martinez, Pieters, O'Connell, Jesus
    B) Ederson, Bardsley, Egan, Ings + 0.3 ITB

    Squad:
    ________
    TAA // ______ // _______
    Bruno // KDB // Dilva // Antonio // Salah
    Kane // ________

    Button // Diop // Connolly // Tanganga

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Both options include a Sheffield United defender, and I'm not sure I fancy that when it's up against Ings, even if Southampton are at home.

    2. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      I like the base you have built however I’m not thrilled about option A or B

  11. _sidney_will
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    First FH Draft, thoughts?

    Martinez

    Digne Tierney Pieters

    Salah Sterling D.Silva Richarlison Antonio

    Aubameyang Jesus

    1. AC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Wouldn’t personally go 2 Arsenal defenders Watford will need something in all likelihood downgrade Tierney and upgrade Jesus

      1. _sidney_will
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Fair enough

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

      Agree with AC re: Arsenal double up.

    3. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Like Richa pick,tinkering with DLC could be nice differential

  12. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Any thoughts for next week? Only one free transfer...

    Pope
    Doherty TAA Wan-Bissaka
    Mane Mahrez KDB Fernandes
    Jiminez Wood Vardy

    Subs:Foden, Aurier, Lascelles,

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Maybe get rid of AWB?

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

      Looking good. Maybe Mahrez to Dilva for fun.

    3. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      AWB > Tierney

  13. BERGKOP
    • 9 Years

    David Silva finishing up will be such a loss to the league. World class. I'll miss watching him play.

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      World class, he was !
      Will miss his delicate passes too 🙂

    2. Fire Chief Moe
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Is there a danger he doesn't start the final game, it's not as if it is his final match ever for City. Could be a trap, hopefully not but could be.

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Always a possibility. No matter the minutes, the team will definitely want to see him enjoy a last goal.

    3. Siva Mohan
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      back to Valencia?

      1. BERGKOP
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Wouldn't be surprised.

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Not according to the brain surgeon on here who reckoned he wasn't fit to lace John Terry's boots. I had a "slightly different" opinion.

  14. liiusions
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Really cant look past a back line of:
    Martinez 3.9
    TAA Tierney Pieters 3.9 3.9

    2 attacking full backs with good fixtures and Pieters to cover Burnley defence.

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years

      Double Ars?

      1. Qaiss

        We are pretty good at the back now berg

        1. BERGKOP

          True. Just other options for the GW

    RMFHTs are pretty annoying.

    Like you get to pick a team for one week. Copy the scout picks, choose some differentials. I don't see why you'd ask for advice on that. If you're a fantasy manager, you should be able to pick 11 players for one week and honestly, nobody else's advice will help because it's just one week and anything can happen in one week.

    1. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Respect
      Truth hurts sometimes 😉

    2. Valar(Keith)
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Most of us arent asking for advice.. we are just showing off 🙂

    3. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      To get thoughts on options e.g. is Auba a better pick than Sterling?

      Yes, anything can happen, but we saw yesterday, with Chris Wood, how you can spot players for a one week punt and it can pay off.

      1. rjcv177
        • 5 Years

        If there's tactics envolved and a couple of players to choose...otherwise FH teams posted will be 90% same

        Fair enough but then ask that specific question instead of doing a blanket RMFHT.

        I will concede that it can be useful this week regarding mini leagues and who to pick in order to chase or defend leads. But that's about it.

    4. Bennerman
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Why is advice on which 11 players to choose out of the hundreds invalid in some way?

      Do you get this haughty about wildcard teams?

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        No because Wildcard teams have further ramifications that last into a season.

        Longer term decision making is what separates great from good managers. And planning ahead on a WC takes time and effort where people can give genuinely good suggestions you hadn't considered.

        1. Bennerman
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          So people can't give suggestions you hadn't considered on a free hit? When there are dozens of genuinely good options and only 15 slots?

          How so?

    5. La Vida Latte

      It is like everyone asking for who to captain, when the wisdom of the crowds is just one click away...

    6. Whiskerz
      • 7 Years

      The probably want to avoid the forum for the next week then.

    7. Ginkapo FPL

      Asking for specific advise makes no sense to me. Discuss approaches to the game and not a one off decision. What are you trying to learn by asking A or B? Grow, develop, evolve by delving deeper.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Well it's micro vs macro decision making.

        And right now, micro decision making is king because it's one week. Aubameyang or Sterling is a very relevant question to ask this week for instance if it's just one week.

    8. El Fenomeno R9
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Its same for every GW,maybe they should close this forum

  17. JabariParkersEyelid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 2 days ago

    First FH draft. Look okay?

    Martinez
    Trent Bardsley Pieters
    Sterling Salah Martial Dilva Antonio
    Auba Jesus

    Nketiah and Cresswell as bench cover.

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Won't be expecting Camzy to comment then...

      1. Ajax Hamsterdam

    2. Traction Engine Foot

      I like it

  18. Old Gregg

    Anyone going mane on FH?.

    My ML rival has Salah (I’m chasing).

    Go mane over Salah?.

    1. JabariParkersEyelid
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 2 days ago

      No reason why not, either of them could go off you just have to get lucky.

    2. rjcv177
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      He has FH to use? U can have Salah - if u feel he's better - and crush him in diff

      1. Old Gregg
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        No he has used his. Thanks.

        I think we will have a few. I’ll have sterling/Auba and maybe Jesus.

        I can’t quite figure out his move

        1. rjcv177
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          IMO salah is way better than Mané (Mané has TAA crossing to him).
          Salah without Mané is just awesome, he can be the talisman.
          But on 38 they both play and share the points.

    3. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yes

    4. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yes, I'm definitely picking the lower owned player as well.

  19. Traction Engine Foot
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    What should my final moves be? Was thinking about Mahrez to Dilva and Guendouzi to Stanislas for -4.
    Have 1ft and 0.6 itb.

    Pope,
    TAA, AWB, Doherty
    Bruno, Mahrez, KDB, Sterling
    Auba, Greenwood, Jimenez

    Martin, Fernandez, Ward, Guendouzi

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Why would you bring Stanislas in for a hit?

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        For fun really. Bournemouth fighting for their lives, Everton look terrible and I'm not that keen on playing Greenwood.

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Prolly trying to get Stanislas injured

  20. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 2 days ago

    I have quite a good solution here.

    Start of next season you are given an option of autosubs or real time subs which cannot be changed.

    This should sort out the problem of time zones.

    Plus, there are 4 players on the bench. Why are we not given the option of subbing those players on during a game.

    You should then also be allowed to keep the points from the player you sub off and collect any points from the player you sub on.

    Would much prefer this to the captain chip.

    1. Qaiss
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Just too complicated, the game is fine how it is, no need for changes like that.. Just needs slightly stricter pricing.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        What is complicated about being able to use your bench during a match?

        1. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          What’s wrong with the game how it is? Maybe a new chip or two and stricter pricing would help.

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

          Best how it is. Imo.
          Some people like to set their team before the deadline and then live their life while the football is playing.

          1. Qaiss
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Exactly this.

    3. jamiejoe

      You're thinking about the x thousand fanaticals on ff rather than the millions of others who are time poor!

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        How many managers in the game have more than one team 😀

    4. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Sorting the baps would be better. Pope won the game yesterday with those 2 brilliant saves, his only saves, 6pts. He was MOTM, yet when he does nowt, bit of catching practice he gets 11pts.

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

      Sounds like a fanny on, tbh.

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

      This would be fun but I think for 99% of people would either be very impractical or very disruptive to social/family/work life. I think I’d stop playing to avoid complete addiction to following every moment of every game!

    7. La Vida Latte
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      In the world cup fantasy there was a deadline everyday when you could sub in a player if he hadn't played yet. That was nice

    8. Ain't No Holebas Girl
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      The amount of time I spend on FPL is already more than enough, having to keep track of every game to sub in players in real time would push me over the edge I think!

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

      While the option to sub works with CL fantasy, because teams each get 3 games on Tuesday, 3 games on Wednesday, it wouldn't work well in PL as players from teams who always play later in the week (Europa League teams) would be at a disdavantage.

    10. Nas
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Too complicated. I d probably stop playing. I rarely have time to watch live games and I would be at a huge disadvantage if others were making live changes while I’m at work missing the game

  21. Traction Engine Foot

    Still buzzing from that win last night, excited to see what Arteta does next season.

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Reminded me of the old Arsenal. (boring boring Arsenal)

      1. Qaiss
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Did you see the first goal? That’s not boring lol

      2. Traction Engine Foot
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I'd be happy with boring for a while if it means competence! But I definitely wasn't bored yesterday..

        1. FALSE PROFIT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Arteta doing what he can with the tools at his disposal. i am not knocking him. Wanting the win vs a nice game to watch can be different when loyalties play a part. Actually, I quite enjoyed the game yesterday TBH

    2. The Knights Template

      Crumple into the foetal position sucking his thumb?

  22. CroatianHammer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    With all due respect to the man and what his family are going through, does anyone know if Aurier returned yesterday?

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Either way, his mind may not be on the game.

      1. CroatianHammer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        He already played one game and wasn't entirely distracted. Granted, having reunited with family it could be more pronounced.

  23. aapoman
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Early tinkering. Boly to Robertson as my final transfer of the season? Would leave me with this squad

    Pope
    TAA Robertson Egan
    Salah KDB Mahrez Foden Fernandes
    Kane Nketiah

    3.9; Greenwood, AWB, Lamptey

    1. FALSE PROFIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yep. I am looking at 3 Pool defenders.

    2. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Fine

  24. Coaly
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Which moves are best?

    a) Cantwell to McNeil
    b) Cantwell to Antonio, Jimenez to Ings -4

    1. The Knights Template
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      B

    2. Netley Lucas
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Problem with removing Raul for a hit is nobody is buying Chelsea defs because they suspect he'll score. He can get 9pts, it's like an Auba brace once you add the hit on.

      1. Coaly
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Thought he might miss the game as his Mrs is due any time

  25. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Hands up, who on here has multiple teams hhhmmm?

    I am proud to say I only have one 🙂

    1. aapoman
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Always had only one.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Good

      2. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 2 days ago

        😆

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

      I only have one but took control of my brothers from January as he lost interest.

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

      One is hard enough....

    4. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Only one

      Multiple teams is very very poor form (at best)

  26. JoeSoap
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Funny old game. 12 from 1 this week who I brought in and last week 8 from 6 at one stage.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Yeah same, ended up on 33 in total last gameweek!

  27. JustPark
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Chances of a player with hamstring injury to be match fit in a week?
    Yes, I'm talking about Taylor.

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Virtually 0 I’m afraid

  28. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    5th in my ML, 62 behind 1st and only I have Kane and Sterling.
    Kane is Captain too.

    Could be a massive opportunity to claw it back!

  29. HMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Any obvious changes here for 38. No chips 1FT, not adverse to taking a hit if needed but I am chasing

    Pope (Button)
    Digne Tark Boly (Holgate Kiko)
    Salah kdb dilva Bruno Martial
    Jesus Rashford (Nketiah)

    Don’t think there will be many goals in United match. Would like Antonio
    Any changes here?

  30. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 2 days ago

    Can Foden finally do something this week to make himself a great GW38 option?

    Given his price it would make for a much easier FH

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Problem is if he has a great week in 37 and plays 90 he won't start in 38...

    2. wulfranian
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      If Foden starts vs watford means he will be in the bench with Norwich.
