Hall of Fame number one Fábio Borges joins Fantasy Football Scout for 2020/21

We at Fantasy Football Scout are delighted to announce that we’ve added yet another high-profile name to our all-star cast of contributors for the 2020/21 season.

And Fantasy Premier League managers don’t come much more illustrious than Fábio Borges, who currently sits atop our Career Hall of Fame.

You’ll need a pretty impressive season history to claim first place in those rankings and Fábio boasts an incredible track record of five successive finishes in the top 5,000 of FPL.

Two of those have been inside the top 1k, with his best-ever overall rank of 95th recorded in 2018/19.

Fábio has never finished outside the top 20,000 in six seasons of playing the game and, just to underscore his prowess, he was also the winner of Ragabolly’s inaugural Virtual FPL competition over the summer.


The Lisbon resident will be involved with Fantasy Football Scout in a Pro Pundit capacity and will be writing articles throughout the season.

Fábio follows site founder Mark Sutherns in joining our star-studded team of contributors, which includes some of the best FPL managers in the world.

The likes of Lateriser, Zophar and Tom Freeman, who have multiple top 1k finishes between them, have come aboard for another year and we are thrilled that they will be writing for us once again in 2020/21.

While there will be our usual offering of free content from these elite names, only Premium Members of Fantasy Football Scout will get unrestricted access to all of their analysis and team reveals.

Full-year subscriptions are available for the pre-season price of £17.50 until August 31, while rolling monthly Memberships can be purchased for £2.99.

    Matheus Pereira may resulted in a Buendia given how poor are the attackers around him. Can't understand the hype.

    1. HurriKane
      • 8 Years

      Buendia was decent in the first half of the season

    2. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      His numbers in championship were better than Buendia. 20 assists and 8 goals compared to Buendia's 12 assists and 8 goals

      I do agree that watching football articles/forums is an enjoyable way for non-natives to learn and practice English.

      You been reading Munday's articles?

        😀 all those non-natives English speakers saying 'ya-know?' makes me smile.

          We should probably take care to avoid slang, to avoid leading them to perdition.

      That's an excellent way to improve your English. The standard of English in the site's articles is very good.

      A bit of constructive criticism. A better way of saying what you've just said would be "I have improved my English since reading and posting comments to this site."

      Writing also only has one 't'.

      1. Third Eye Vision

        i.e. ‘on this site’ would be better in your suggestion...

          The object in my sentence is "the site's articles", not the site. The grammar is in the articles not on them.

      2. T.Henry14

        thank you buddy. 😀

      I was only thinking about this the other day. I teach English and often think about correcting grammar on here (when English is clearly not the poster’s first language). I don’t do it, because it’s not really the place, but wonder if it would sometimes be appreciated.

      Good for you T. Henry. Well done. Keep posting and ask questions.

    Thoughts on this latest draft?
    McCarthy
    Taa, Vinagre, Justin, Saliba
    Salah, auba, Ziyech, asm
    Werner Kane

    B: nyland Ferguson Gordon Davis

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Think Saliba is nailed ? Not sure about double Chelsea attack with 2 newbies unless you switch one gw2

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Decent, what’s the plan for city?

    3. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Very very good team. Keep it like this until after friendlies. Nothing needs changing imo

      1. Me Spurs
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Auba will be kdb on Gw 3

  4. KujaliaFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Is anyone else considering having both the Palace 4.0 fullbacks in their initial squad?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Just the one for me. Options at 4.5 are much more appealing

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Just Ferguson

    3. Soto Ayam
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I'm contemplating it. I only one to start gw 1 and 2, then should be okay after that

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yeah, I’m on that for sure if they don’t make any more signings

    5. Ser Davos
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      They're both in atm

      But my selection varies greatly

  5. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Anyone know what Aubameyang’s away form was like last season?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      He would’ve been the 3rd best point scoring if he was mid last year so i guess it was pretty good

  6. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    My budget midfielder pick is Pereira. Yes he will be a promoted newbie but he is WBA's main attacking outlet. Looking at their opening fixtures could get some decent returns. At 6.0 and below there is not much choice to be honest. Could go Armstrong but then you may end up triple SOU which does not tickle my fancy. ASM another option but his fitness is yet another concern. I also do not want to punt Soucek as WHU fixtures are basically the worst.

    Pereira is either going to be a hit or a total flop. Nailed though and if he does nothing early an easy swith to Armstrong or ASM or anyone cheaper etc without messing with the rest of my starting 11.

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Sad thing here is that you're describing Buendia... Or maybe that's just the fear of an unrelated previous bad experience talking

      To be fair, Buendia didn't start the season so terribly anyway

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Point is that that there is not much midfield choice at 6.0 and under. Anything mids at 6.5 do not look like hauling potential either unless anyone think Foden is nailed which he won't be.

        Pereira is at a nice price point to switch him between Armstrong, ASM or cheaper if it goes wrong. I do not think upgrading to a 6.5 is worth it.

    2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I would JWP as number one 6.0m to be honest. But hearing a lot of talk on Pereira.

    3. zeslinguer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      What is wrong with owning triple Southampton if each of the three picks is a good pick?

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      ASM fitness issues?

  7. fr3d
    • 3 Years

    Who's the better Lei defender for the first few weeks, Thomas or Justin?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Justin

      1. The Pesci challenge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        This

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Depends on Pereira and new defensive signings.

  8. Ze_Austin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    The conundrum of premium defenders:

    If you start without them, it might be hard to convince yourself to get them, as there are usually at least two 4.0/4.5 D and one 6.0/6.5 M/F with good form and/or fixtures in the league at any point in time, and it's quite easy to forget how fixture-proof premium defenders are, so their "bad fixtures" stand against them in these decisions

    If you start with them, it might be hard to convince yourself to sell them and change formation (replacing a benched attacker with a 4.0/4.5 D) for similarly priced attackers who are more form/fixture based, as you'll (correctly?) believe they'll outscore the similarly priced attackers long-term

    Either way, you might be right or wrong. Takes hindsight or some clearly significant predictive occurrences like an Alisson/VVD/Laporte/Boly injury

    I think that decision should be more personal. What suits your style of play more? Are you naturally more patient than the other FPL managers who might (correctly) make those form and fixture based transfers? Are you more successful (or likely to go) with form and fixture based transfers?

    Good luck with your decision here. I really feel it comes down to your style of play

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Would love to fit Doherty in but i am having to settle for vinagre due to price

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I was sure I'd start with TAA and Robertson, but Chelsea and Arsenal in the first two - plus an unknown quantity in Leeds - has put me right off.

      I'm on 7.5 - 4.5 - 4.5 - 4.5 - 4.0 at present. There looks to be lots of value in 4.5m defenders this year.

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes, there are good 4.5s out there

        But they aren't known to be fixture proof or exactly long term, so they are transfers waiting to happen (much) later, and it is very possible that you'll time that transfer/rotation right, so it can very easily work for you

        My point is that someone with 7.5 7.0/6.0 4.5 4.5 4.0 might score fewer/same/more points than your team, by replacing your benched 4.5m attacker with that 7.0/6.0 D, but the best way they can maximize the points from that decision seems to be some serious patience

        I can't even attempt to guess which of you will win on the long run if the rest of your XI and captains are identical, as I think they're both viable strategies. That's why I said it comes down to you as a player

        Also, you've brought something I talked about in my post: premium defenders don't really have bad fixtures, as they belong to the kind of defences that can keep out those scary attacks coming, and can also chip in with random attacking returns in the worst games... And, again, they're meant to be there for a very patient period that runs beyond fixture swings. Even with this, will they outscore the 4.0/4.5 combination with cheap attackers using form and fixtures? I have no idea

        There's a grey area here, where there are teams who have 5.5m M/D and no 6.0 to 7.0 slot in defence or attack. This post doesn't apply to those teams

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Agree with everything your saying 🙂 If Liverpool's fixture run of Leeds, Chelsea, Arsenal came at any point into the season, then I wouldn't be considering selling Robertson and just going with TAA. But we effectively have a wildcard now so can choose the defence we think is optimal for the start.

          With that in mind, I hope I prioritise bringing Robertson in GW4. I am likely to have other pressing matters though!

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I agree, and I'm glad we understand each other 🙂

            Best of luck!

    3. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Good post.

      I'm absolutely set on TAA, VVD, Vinagre (unless they sign a LB) and Ferguson.

      Last spot comes down to a 4.5m + Werner or Doherty + Ziyech.

      1. Berbs
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        On paper the latter sounds better but it locks me into a heavy defence and little room to manoeuvre with my forward, so I'm probably going with the former at the moment with the view of keeping Martial, Aguero etc at an arms length.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      VVD, TAA and Doherty are mean machines for points and will most likely outscore the likes of Mitro, Soucek, ASM etc over the season.

      I guess it is just the way you setup your starting 11.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Over a season, sure. But over 4,5,6 games? I prefer VVD over Mitrovic for the season, but not the first 3.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Are Wolves and LFC opening fixtures that bad?

          Wolves no Europe and LFC only CHE and City to get by.

          Doherty over any current mid up to 6.5 all day long.

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 8 days ago

            I didn't mention Wolves - don't mind their opening fixtures, but I won't be doubling up with Vinagre.

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 8 days ago

              Never mentioned Vinagre. Double LFC defence plus Doherty looking a far better option than hoping on hauls from one of the 5.5 to 6.5 mids.

      2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 11 Years

        Teams are not set in stone and will be in flux during the season,

      3. Super Saints
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        They will comfortably outscore those players but they cost more

    5. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think there’s a great argument for picking two of the premium defenders and leaving them in for the season.

    6. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      For reasons you said going without expensive defender - I plan three 4.5m and two 4.0m. Allows me have Mane, Salah and Aubameyang.

    7. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Last season I chose Boly & he makes a huge difference to the Wolves defence, bonus magnet to boot.

    8. zeslinguer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Going for Doc and TAA. For it’s just two positions I know I won’t have to worry about all season, allowing me to concentrate transfers on midfield and strikers. The fewer decisions you have to make the better

    9. Third Eye Vision
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Double Wolves def might be a good option this season.

    10. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      TAA & Doc on board at the minute...

      But would LOVE to somehow get VVD alongside them

      Maybe squeezing out Mitro is the way...

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        This exactly, which mid or fwd up to 6.5 will outscore VVD, TAA or Doherty? 🙂 Even the 7.0 mids are looking like a bit of a lottery.

  9. Dru
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    A - Ings + Ziyech
    B - Antonio + Son

    Please vote as I can't decide.

    1. The Pesci challenge

      A

    2. Coys96

      A. Son doesnt start well and Antonio has poor fixtures

      1. Third Eye Vision
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        You could say that the only solid defence he faces in the first 5 fixtures is Wolves.

    Yep, having a crap GW1 then playing your Wildcard in GW2 is a bad idea. Agreed. Also, even if you plan your team to maximise GW1 fixtures, with the intention of playing your WC in GW2 ~ it's still generally considered as a bad idea. Again, agreed. This season however, it might not be. Copping a deaf'un to the usual rhetoric might be a worthy differential this year. How many points does a wildcard normally save you? Let's say 20 points. How many extra points can I make with the following team? And how useful when building my team for GW2 will the knowledge be from having seen GW1? Also, after a few weeks, not having the escape route of a WC helps keep your focus ~ and removes the temptation!

    1. @FPL_Chess

      MaCarthy - Cry (A);

      Salah - Lee (H); Aub - Ful (A);
      Verdy - WBA (A); Ings - Cry (A): Kane - Eve (H)
      Bench:~ Nyland + Ferguson + 2* 4.5 mids.

      I may not do this myself yet but it maybe shouldn't be dismissed as an option. And yes, not having Trent would be a worry!

        A bit risky only having 2 premium mids as its the mids that are going to get most of the points this season. Too much spent up top but could work out

        1. @FPL_Chess
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          If I'm playing my WC in GW2 I'll have more than two premium mids.

    2. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years

      I think the GW2 fixtures for Liverpool/Chelsea/Wolves/City was the nail in the GW2WC coffin

      1. @FPL_Chess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        I see your point. You'd have to wait a week for the Wolves fixtures to come good. But as you have to wait weeks for 'pool and City to get fixtures, you've plenty of time to plan.

        1. @FPL_Chess
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          should say 'nice fixtures'

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

      I’m going with WC GW3 instead. It gives an additional GW to observe and there is a slight fixture shift for teams like Man City, Wolves, Arsenal (good time to get rid of Arsenal assets).

      Downsides vs GW2 WC is possibly fewer Man Utd players (I’ll get 1 with the FT) for the Palace fixture and Liverpool Chelsea playing each other. However Liverpool Chelsea games last season had a lot of goals so unless you are doubling up on Liverpool defence in GW1, it shouldn’t be a big issue for attackers.

      1. @FPL_Chess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes it's true, GW3 is a good time to drop Arsenal assets - so I can see your point.

    4. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Planning to use the wc that early is a really awful decision. If someone's starting squad is a disaster and its needed then fair enough, but planning it? Woeful.

      1. @FPL_Chess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        We clearly don't agree on this one, as I think that having a disastrous GW1 is not a good reason to play your WC. Best of luck.

          Didn't mention using it after one week. For me a bad start would be a horrid 3 or 4 weeks where it's obvious the squad isnt going to turn it around. Planning to use the most powerful chip we have after one or two weeks though....awful imo.

            Yep, fair play to you. I misread your response, and generally I would agree with you. I just think because of the staggered start that other options should be considered.

      I prefer to think of the WC as a lifejacket if things go wrong early rather than have a dedicated week to use it

      1. @FPL_Chess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Yes that's what everyone thinks. I'm just suggesting that as there is a staggered start this season that other options are considered.

    Better option to start with? Want to keep the pair for as long as possible....

    A..... ings and asm

    B....jiminez and armstrong

    Thanks

      This is tough but the only one i have out of the 4 is ASM so i would say A

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Can't see Ings be worth 8.5m without penalties, at least compared with Jimenez.

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    City intrigue me this season....

    A) will Aguero be first choice? Getting on a bit, but Jesus wasteful end of last season despite his hard work.

    B) Mahrez - could be a great pic this year. Got 175 points last season, priced just 8.5m this season with no Sane or Silva.

    Thoughts?

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think KDB/sterling is enough this season

    2. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Sane has been replaced by Torres but he isn’t a threat to sterling than sane was so i think sterling is a safer pick. I wouldn’t even start on the striker position as pep will rotate

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

      With the strikers I don’t think there has been a clear first choice for a while now unless one of them is injured or seriously out of form. They just get rotated and you’ll have to accept that if you for Aguero. The upside is he tends to play more in easier home games in which he is more likely to haul though.

      Mahrez could become an option at some point in the season but if you look at his recent minutes both in CL or PL, he hasn’t started any of the last 5 so doesn’t seem to be 1st choice anymore. They also have Torres added to the rotation in his position.

  13. Super Saints

    This team leaves me 1m ITB for;

    Auba/Salah > KDB

    Mccarthy Nyland
    TAA Robertson Vinagre KWP Ferguson
    Salah Auba Ziyech Soucek Stephens

      Rather have Doherty than Robertson. No i am saving the same amount to do son > KDB

  15. Besaid_Auroch

    RMT please:

    McCarthy / 4.0
    TAA, Aurier, Egan (Vinagre, Stephens)
    Salah, Auba, Son, Pereira, (4.5)
    Werner, Mitrovic, C Adams

    1. The Pesci challenge
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Looks decent enough, Spurs don’t keep clean sheets so i would be wary of that and i would look to find the extra .5 to get Doherty. P.S love the wakka grav

  16. Firmino

      1. Firmino

        Do you think Ziyech will have corners and freekicks in Chelsea?

        1. Hakim Ziyech
          • 1 Year

          Yeah. Lampard said I will have them when I signed the contract

  17. Dynamic Duos

    Power midfield?

    McCarthy

    Nyland Ferguson Braithwaite Davis

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years

      You'll struggle to field more than 9 players

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Ferguson and then 11 play, Brewster hopefully gets a loan move

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Obviously gwk1 I need to drop one of Greenwood or Sterling and bring in gwk2 or gwk3

    3. Coys96

      Downgrade Son

  18. THE WERNER DELUSION

    anyone think WBA's first 3 fixtures are sneakily good from an attacking perspective?

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      They're ok

  19. Coys96

    Any Liverpool fans out there.... will Keita start??

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Very likely to start the season as things stand.

    2. Firmino
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think he will, Henderson needs to build his fitness and will definitely miss the Community Shield. Also there are rumours of Gini going to Barca.

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

      He was our best player post lockdown I really hope he gets a good amount of starts this year. If Gini leaves and Thiago comes in then I think he starts for a bit for sure till Thiago settles in

    4. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I think he’s a good shout unless/until we sign Thiago

  20. Tony Martial
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Suggestions? 1.5 ITB
    Periera/7.5 ➡️ Greenwood next week

    McCarthy 4.0
    Trent BDavies/Dier Vinagre Saliba Ferguson
    Salah Auba Periera ASM 4.5
    Werner Kane 4.5.

  21. b91jh

    1) Vinagre+Bruno
    2) Doherty+Martial

    Thoughts?

  22. SmasherLagru

    Nyland Greenwood Ferguson Douglas

    Rp

    1. SmasherLagru

      or Jiminez over Bobby

      1. Tony Martial
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Jimenez or Ings over Firmino and then get ASM for Smallbone

          1. Hakim Ziyech
            • 1 Year

  24. Berbs
    • 10 Years

    Leeds to consider a move for Origi if a move for Edouard doesn't materialise. Also want Brewster on loan.

    Via Mirror

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      I'd take Brewster at 4.5 for sure.

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

        I'm getting impatient to see where Brewster is headed. Hopefully it's to one of the PL teams.

    2. InterUranus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      I think we're just being linked with everyone at the moment, wouldn't read too far into anything until the club makes it official.

      There’s a hot topic

        thanks mate

  26. CostaCoffee

    Jota a decent pick or is he a rotation risk?

    1. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Minutes are always a risk, but gold when he goes on a run. Watchlist for me

  27. Champ
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Any love for Traore?

    Bar city gw2, great fixtures for a couple of months.

    Was getting the minutes post lockdown and looked pretty good

    Solid side and with Boly back helps also

    1. Coys96
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Bar City! 3 of his 4 goals last season came against City

      That's the game I would be targeting!

      Good option

      1. Champ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers. Yes 6.5m is decent price i think. City with laporte back are different best sadly

  28. KujaliaFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Regarding the City midfield, Will Ferran Torres and Mahrez interfere with each other FPLwise? It seems to me that they perform the same function in the team, which makes me not want either.

    Aguero and Jesus probably interfere with each other for similar reasons.

    What will Bilva's role be? He's quite cheap at 7.5, so if he starts, that's a huge saving over the cost of Sterling or De Bruyne.

    Unfortunately, they and Rodri seem to be the only nailed mids for City, so I might have to stump up the De Bruyne cash. Bilva is still quite tempting at 7.5 though.

    1. CostaCoffee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Bilva too much of a rotation risk, Sterling and KdB the only 2 serious options imo

  29. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    Soucek is at such a handy little price isn’t he?

    West Ham’s fixtures are horrific after GW1 - but you can’t beat a 5.0 starting mid with a bit of sporadic goal threat thrown in for good measure

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yep. Nailed in my squad.

    2. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Im definitely considering. The fixtures are not as awful as they appear at first glance. Hammers went pretty well post lockdown and at that price you can’t ask for much more.

    3. Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      In my opinion he is great for banch/rotation...and nothing else (at the start)

    4. InterUranus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      I have him in but I can't help feeling that for an extra 0.5 that having ASM or Armstrong might be worth it.

    5. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      What does Soucek need to deliver over (say) the first eight games to have been a success?

      28 points would be 3.5 per game. That's:
      16 appearance points
      - 1 yellow
      5 points for a goal
      3 points for an assist
      5 points bonus

      Just about plausible for me. And what he enables elsewhere makes it a risk worth taking. Don't feel confident picking a more expensive (5.5/6) alternative will necessarily guarantee more points. So he's in (for now!)

    6. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Yes but I prefer Ritchie. I think he has more access to attacking returns

  30. Z
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 8 days ago

    I'm just thinking out loud..

    1. Werner- everyone says that the price is lower in relation to the quality of the player- and I agree! But CFC has 4 strikers at the moment, of which Abraham has to get minutes, and Ziru has a excelent end of seasson and the Euro is waiting for him this year.

    2. Kane or Son? Mostly everyone takes Son because of the price but don't forget that Mourinho style games suit him better. Also, Kane's game schedule this season is terrible, because he doesn't have a worthy replacement.

    3. Wardy. I haven’t seen him in many teams, and he’s the league’s top scorer to have fantastic fixtures.

    4. Placeholders. You all have a plan to trade Auba or Mane for players from MU or City in GW2 or 3... but what happens if placeholders explode? This seson is not like last when a of us had same players...this time there are much more great options.

    1. InterUranus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 8 days ago

      Auba away doesn't fill me with confidence, yet.

    2. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      4. I'd like to think I still sell them (hopefully with a little price profit). Because if they did well the opposition is a significant factor. And in Auba's case the fixtures 3-8 are far less likely to deliver returns

    3. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      1. I expect Abraham to mainly get minutes off the bench and in the cups. No way Werner signs unless he's a guaranteed part of the XI. Plus he's several levels above his competition

      1. Z
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Seson is long and heavy...And Lamps have players to rotate. Timo will be #1 but not with minutes as Kane or Vardy...so the difference in price is 1M

        1. Fit of Pique
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 8 days ago

          Probably, but perhaps not until Xmas period. Realistically we're building teams for first eight weeks max

    4. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 8 days ago

      3. I would like Vardy but prioritising Werner (ownership, exciting new toy) and Jimenez (Mr Reliable at 1.5m less).

      And at Leicester I think it's Vardy or nothing

      1. Z
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 8 days ago

        Same, so i got Zyich and Vardy. Too many mangers took Werner and there i see my oportunity
