    Tough Call... i think probably my last decision. But ive said that several times today >.<

    A. Greenwood + DIgne (or Tark and a playing bench)

    vs

    B. Wood + Long

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      A

      Long Wood at least has some comedy value... maybe that'll cheer me up if it ends up the wrong choice.

      Just buy a few beers with the £5 and enjoy it that way instead. Saves you losing your money

    FH team draft, thoughts?

    Pope (3,9)
    Pieters-Tarkowski-Branthwaite-(3.8-3,9)
    Son-Sterling-Dilva-Fernandes-(4,1)
    Kane-Auba-Jesus

    Captain?

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Bruno is knackered.

      1. Winston.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        He could make a comeback

      2. BATISTUTA ®
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 20 hours ago

        Mainly for the set pieces/pens ... he will be involved imo.

  6. jth

    Bruno, Doherty to Sterling, Tark (-4)?

    1. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year

        Good 0.1 short of that team I showed you this morning matey 🙂

          give it a day then - but Kane is moving fast

            Got Kane in.

  8. grennans2
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Which team is strongest? On FH

    A)

    Martinez
    Aurier Long Robbo
    Silva Sterling Mahrez Martial Salah
    Kane Ings

    B)

    Martinez
    Aurier Long Pieters
    Silva Sterling Mahrez Salah
    Kane Auba Ings

    C)

    Martinez
    Bardsley Long Pieters
    Silva Sterling Mahrez Martial Salah
    Kane Auba

    1. Sandesh_
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      B

  9. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    My FH coming down to this decision, which one?

    A) McCarthy + Robbo + Mahrez
    B) Pope + Stephens + KDB

    I already have Pieters so B would meam double Burnley defense

    1. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      With the usual Pep roulette disclaimer, B because KdB could go massive even if he hasn't recently

      1. umerlfc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        Thanks! Leaning towards B then

    2. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year

      can u go a and play riena instead of mccarthy and finding money somewhere else to go trent instead of robbo?

  10. Tomerick

    What are the chances of a Wolves clean sheet?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      low

    2. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      That game will be low scoring, both teams wont want to lose, same as the Utd v Lei match

    3. The Senate
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      more chance than a chelsea clean sheet

    4. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Pulisic was amazing yesterday

      1. Tomerick
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        True

    5. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      no chance.. will be a cheeky high scoring game. chelseas inability to defend will force them to come up with a win some way else. i reckon theyll go out very attacking which will leave space for jimi and whoever else to benefit. high scoring imo.

  11. FDMS All Starz
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Which combo?

    A) KDB & Antonio

    or

    B) Mahrez & Martial

    1. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      B. If Mahrez starts he’s a better option than KdB imo

    2. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      A

    3. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      a

  12. liiusions
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Finally starting to come around to my FH team, some thoughts would be apprecaited...

    Martinez
    TAA Aurier Pieters
    Sterling(c) Mahrez Dilva Salah Martial
    Kane Ings
    (4.0 Greenwood 3.9 3.8)
    0.3 ITB

    KdB over Mahrez/Dilva means downgrading one of Salah, Martial, TAA or Kane which I do not think I am prepared to do.

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Martial>Antonio and Mahrez>KDB possible ?

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      I was thinking of downgrading TAA in my very similar FH but last night reminded me of why I have him!

  13. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Bruno Doherty to sterling gomez -4 yay or nay?

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Nope

    2. liiusions
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Aurier or Tierney over Gomez imo. Terrible pick - doesn’t even go up for corners

  14. OptimusBlack
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Can I ask Again

    1. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      A - Martin & Lascelles >
      Ederson + Branthwaite

    B) Bruno

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      b

    2. OptimusBlack
      • 7 Years

      Equal but ppl sell Burno cuz he looks tired

    3. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Tough one. Pulisic looked great last night but Wolves are decent defensively of course. B at a push.

    4. toerag
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      a is on fire atm imo

  17. PascalCygan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Would appreciate some feedback if possible please.

    I'm chasing in my ML and managed to cut my deficit from 50 to 16 points this week.

    I'm going FH, and he's going to go TC.

    My FH means we'll have very different teams and I'm just wondering who to captain?

    My gut says Sterling. Rival does not have Sterling or Kane but has 1FT and 2.8ITB so could bring either in for KdB or Jimenez theoretically.

    Jimi to Kane or Auba (who he's had before) is the likeliest move he'll make IMO, so am I right to stick to my guns and go with Sterling?

    Just hope he doesn't bring him in and TC him!

    Thanks

    1. toerag
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      id cap sterling i think

      1. PascalCygan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        Thanks. I wouldn't usually second-guess someone that much but ML is my main concern on the final weekend. Stick to my guns and hopefully the rest of my differentials (hoping we'll only have two or max three of the same players) will pay off.

    2. The Littlest Robbo
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      If he has that sort of money in the bank you can't discount him bringing Sterling in. Captain Sterling and roll the dice with the others

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Surely have to go Sterling and hope the rest of your team outscores his.

    4. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Thanks, Istanbul 05 and Foo Fighter. As I mentioned to Toerag, I wouldn't usually second-guess someone that much but ML is my main concern on the final weekend.

      Stick to my guns and hopefully the rest of my differentials (hoping we'll only have two or max three of the same players) will pay off.

      It was having Sterling, TAA and Foden as points of difference to him which allowed me to eat into his lead this week. May a similar pattern follow in 38!

      Cheers!

    Who scores more assuming Mendy starts?

    A) Mendy (NOR)
    B) Digne (BOU)

    1. Predator
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      A

    2. toerag
      • 10 Years

      think id go A

    3. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      A

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Mendy will get max 6 points. Digne probably 2 pointer. BOU are going to fight.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        Any defenders sub 5.9 with a high point ceiling you can suggest? Not TAA or Aurier

        1. Planet_Marss
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 23 hours ago

          none really.. just mendy and burnley boys after that for budget. there is tierny if u fancy a sneak dif in the end... but i expect watford to fight even with no manager lol

  21. Strchld
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Is this FH team good enough? Or would you change something?
    Is Kane and Son too much?

    Martinez
    TAA - Pieters - Long
    Salah - KdB - Sterling - Dilva - Son
    Greenwood - Kane

    1. Planet_Marss
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      son to fernandes and upgrade else where

  22. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Martinez
    Aurier, Bardsley, Pieters
    Salah, Sterling, Pulisic, Silva
    Kane, Jesus, Ings

    How would you improve this free hit?

    1. toerag
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      looks good, what are you chasing, ML? Overall??

      1. Captain_Shirokov
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 23 hours ago

        Overall rank, opened up a 60 point gap in my ML this week.

        1. toerag
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 23 hours ago

          looks good

    2. TFP
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      Hard to improve much. Would Pope in goal be affordable? The number of Burnley defensive assets you pick this week is a key variable, you've picked 2, 3 would be really going for it, high risk/ high reward/high cost of failure...

  23. Will J 256
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Pulisic or Antonio? First to three!!

    Who to bench?

    A. Digne (BOU)
    B. Doherty (che)
    C. Aurier (cry)

    Tricky... Everton have nothing to play for, and Bournemouth will do everything to score. I have Patricio as well, so what about Doherty?

  25. raoulduke71

    GTG?

    POPE
    TRENT TARK AURIER
    SALAH DILVA KDB STERLING BRUNO
    KANE GREENWOOD

    1. toerag

      yes. bruno iffy but yes

  26. bigdip
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Pick one:
    A) Silva
    B) Mahrez
    (Have KDB and Jesus and cannot afford Sterling)

    1. toerag
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      heart says Dilva

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year

      KDB to Sterling

    3. Winston.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 23 hours ago

      DSilva

  27. Tabasco
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Wish I still had my FH for this one...

    Martinez (Martin)
    Aurier A-Arnold Doherty (Bednarek) (Robinson)
    KDB Salah Mahrez Fernandes Willian
    Jiminez Rashford (Greenwood)

    No idea what to do; I want Sterling, Dilva and Kane somehow but it all invovles a hit that I'm not sure I can afford (3 points off ML).

    A) Willian & Jiminez to Dilva & Ings
    B) Rashford & Willian to Kane & Saka
    C) Rashford & Jiminiez to Jesus & Wood
    D) KDB & Mahrez to Sterling & Foden
    E) KDB & Willian to Sterling & Grealish
    F) 1 transfer - Mahrez to Dilva or Jiminez to Ings, for example

  28. Hryszko
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 23 hours ago

    Fernandes & Jesus > Sterling & Greenwood.

    Good moves?
