Great Expectations

Can Leandro Trossard build on his debut FPL season and dodge the Brighton rotation?

Just before the start of the 2019/20 season, Brighton and Hove Albion signed Leandro Trossard (£6.0m) for a fee of around £15m.

I was very excited: he had just come off the back of the best season of his career, registering 14 goals and seven assists for Genk as they won the Belgian top flight.

His skilful playstyle and favoured position on the left wing combined with his Belgian nationality inevitably drew comparisons to the departing Eden Hazard.

Trossard tried to distance himself from the hype, but I couldn’t help but think we had pulled off a real coup.

The player said about himself:

I like one against ones. I’m quite fast, turning. I hope I can show you so you know how my style is.

Now reflecting on Trossard’s first season in the Premier League, I’ve been left a bit disappointed, both by Trossard’s overall performances (bar a couple of decent goals and display) and how I feel Potter has used him throughout the campaign.

I’m going to use this article to take a look at Trossard in more detail and hopefully, give a bit more insight into how I expect Albion to line up next season – and who (if any) of the Brighton boys we should be considering for our 2020/21 squads.

    So who will be sacrificed for Messi?
    a. Jesus
    b. Mane

        No. I don't own Jesus. I meant who will sign Messi? City or Liverpool?.

        1. Jdpz
            3 months, 2 days ago

            City

          • Pad Randa

            Manchester United will sign Messi before Liverpool even thinks about it.

            He's going to City if he's going anywhere.

              Some news articles are saying that Liverpool are willing to offer Mane to Barca in exchange for Messi..

                  Sorry. My mistake. Barca are targetting Mane. Liverpool not targetting Messi.

            Liverpool haggled over Werner's asking price and are now doing the same with Thiago. Can't see them going in for Messi.

          Mitchell of Palace. Johnson not nailed I think..

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

        I like the Maddison pick. Defense needs some help. Consider an 8.5 forward instead of Werner and use funds to get some assured starters in the back line.

      Took a 2 hour nap and the "miss one day at school" memes are suddenly much more understandable...

      - Doherty 99% at Spurs: Still should be a great option, Mourinho will likely use his off-the-ball movement more like he did with Ivanovic 2014/15 (4G 3A)

      - 8 Chelsea players in quarantine, Pogba and Ndombele both testing positive too

      The season's going to be insane if this keeps up. It's also going to become more and more dangerous should nothing change and the chance of lockdown increases. That being said we saw how well Project Restart went, when the $'s were threatened so they'll probably figure it out. Nevertheless, it isn't a good look for anyone at the moment.

      1. SAY MY NAME
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        most of the quarantines and new cases seem to be from players being outside the normal bubble, going on holidays, going to parties etc, hopefully the more protective regime procedures as the start of season approaches will keep things in check

    7. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      After much tinkering I'v come up with these bunch. Any suggestions are welcomed :

      Ramsdale (Nyland)
      TAA / Doherty / KWP / Vinagre (Ferguson)
      Salah / Auba / Willian / ASM (Bissouma)
      Werner / Ings ( Davis)

      1. Chris_H
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Solid - people will criticise Willian but you can pivot to Greenwood/Foden/Maddison etc if he doesn't work for you

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

          That was exactly what I thought. He might become Pepe for first 2GW , if he starts in Community Shield. Otherwise, in GW3 I'll ditch him for Greenwood/Foden

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

      Once a vaccine is discovered, FFS is going to have to have a page on which players have been vaccinated. Perhaps on the watchlist they can have a wee syringe or pill instead of the form letters which will be meaningless. Are they safe to play - yes or no, that’s all we’ll need to know.

      1. Dont_Win_Friends_With_Salah…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        If, rather than once I think. Plus 2 people yesterday re-caught it so no guarantee a vaccine would protect long term. Could be stuck with this.

    10. Powers106
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Pogba tests positive for Covid - haven't seen him in many draft teams and says he could still be ready for GW1 (Sep 19th)

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

        He should be fine in a week max so should be ready for Sep 19th.

        1. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Based on what? Dybala had the virus for like 6 weeks.

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

            Based on recovery time of +95% of the football players and fit and healthy individuals in his age group. Dybala might have had it for longer but 1 or few examples in such a big sample doesn’t mean much.

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

              Fair enough. Haven't done research on the average recovery time but I personally know a fit and healthy 22 year old that had it for almost two months so I assumed it wasn't as predictable as you suggest.

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

                Just to be clear, there are cases who have the symptoms for much longer within the age group mentioned including some which, unfortunately, end up with death.

                However existing and ongoing research indicates that this is very rare (findings range from 1% - 5% in different studies), hence my comment above assuming Pogba wouldn’t be in the 2nd group just based on the %s. Of course it’s not 100% certain though.

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

                  Yeah I understand. I was unfamiliar with the research, not disagreeing with you now that you've proven yourself to be more knowledgeable about it. 🙂

                  Still rather a flippant comment given all that is going on, however.

                    I disagree that it’s a flippant comment but won’t go into the discussion of semantics to avoid further swaying from the main subject of the website. You are free to view it as you wish.

                  They've made a full recovery.

        No interest in Pogba as a pick but his availability does affect the other United assets imo. Much more creativity with both him and Bruno on the pitch.

    13. OldBenKenobi
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Has anyone tried building a team with a 14m Messi shaped hole in it? (Assuming he would be a 14.0 mid)

      Curious to see what ppl come up with 🙂

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

        My plan is Kane + Auba -> Jimmy + Messi in GW3 if he's a 14m mid.

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

          Nice

      2. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Mine would simply be Antonio to Brewster/4.5 and Messi in for Auba, I think. Means playing a 4.5 defender and Soucek every week though.

        Salah would lose a lot of appeal too, though, so could downgrade him to raise the funds.

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

          Would make me reconsider the number of heavy hitters my team would have

          You wouldn’t be interest in Messi?
          Any reason in particular?

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

            No reason other than being too expensive, especially for 14m.

            1. I Member
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              3 months, 2 days ago

              Did you not have CR7 or RVP at that price? Messi easily capable of 40 goal contributions in that City team.

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

                Was not playing fantasy at that time. I'm sure Ronaldo/Robin didn't had any alternative whereas Messi does have. Doubt he will even come close to likes of Salah/Aubameyang or even his team mate Kevin/Sterling.

                Boring way of picking one player and sticking forever is not my cup of tea, would rather not play the game.

                Won't be walk in a park for him anyway... 😀

      4. Flair

        Salah + Kane --> Messi + Ings/Jimmy, similar to the other guy.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        If West Ham don’t sign any new right backs, I reckon higher than 50%.

        Im a WH fan. Fredricks has massively underwhelmed since he joined us. We released Jeremy Ngakia because we knew Ben Johnson was a better prospect, he really is held in high esteem.

        Even better, he can play both fullback position (RB natural), so he has a very high chance getting mins.

        Between him and Mitchell for my 4m defender at the moment.

            Still time to self isolate for 14 days and be back for GW1

              Would they not miss pre season friendlies though so doubt theyd go straight in? Maybe mount or pulisic might

      3Q’s :

      A) who is still sticking with Doherty from GW1 following Spurs transfer?
      B) are people still sticking with McCarthy? If not, who?
      C) is vinagre back into drafts?

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

        A) I will, I expect Spurs second season defense to be elite. I'm confident Mourinho knows how he'll use Doherty, allowing him to push forward like Aurier did but hopefully with a emphasis on getting into the box instead of crossing. Not going to do the "wait and see" when Spurs fixtures are so good early doors.

        B) Until he gets displaced, he will stay.

        C) When did he leave?

        3 months, 2 days ago

        A. Yes
        B. Yes, why not? Good value at 4.5 for those fixtures.
        C. Still in mine until something concrete around new LB.

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

        A) Haven't had Doherty in any of my drafts but I still think he's a good pick at Spurs.
        B) What's happened with McCarthy now? Currently in my team.
        C) Never left mine and don't think he will.

      4. Holmes
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        1) Yes
        2) As of now, yes. Miesler on watchlist.
        3) Not yet, will be final day decision

      5. Nightrain_
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        A) Yes he stays
        B) Tripling up Spurs with Son and Lloris, i don't see any value in McCarthy, simply cheap and poor
        C) Vinagre stays

    17. Infected by ebolasie
      • 4 Years

      Tinkering with the 8th attacker and the rotating 3rd/4th defender.

      A) Soucek + 4.5 other than Vinagre and Justin (Currently on C.Taylor)
      B) Gordon + 5.0 (Currently thinking Davies)

      Shelvey scored 5 goals in the first 16 GWs last season... what?!

      1. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        he's basically a bald KDB, not surprising he gets FPL points

    21. ⚽️ Barry Chocolate ⚽…
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Rudak (4.0)

      Alexander-Arnold . Tierney . Fernández . (Justin . KWP)

      Salah . Auba . Alli . Soucek . Richie

      Werner . Adams . (4.5)

      2.5 ITB

      No TX planned until flexibility to upgrade at later date - defence to incl Doh, Lap, Rob, mid to Rat boy, Greenw, attacker to Jimi or Mitro etc

    22. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      The Big 3 question.

      In order to optimise both points and also Captain options on any given week, it would be ideal to have the choice of key assets from United, pool and city.

      So for example, Salah+Fernandes+KDB

      Clearly though that is a big chunk of budget and affects the squad elsewhere.

      For the extra money I feel Fernandes is worth it over rash or martial.

      Of course, there's always the possibility that Foden or greenwood might step up too but that's a gamble.

      The last thing I want to do is the hokey cokey wasting transfers...

      I know I'm going to want all 3 at different stages so do I just bite the bullet and keep them?

      Or play the value game swapping them in and out, which could lose value if they increase in price and also cost transfers?

      I'm undecided but would be nervous without them. Any thoughts guys?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I think having those 3 for start of the season is perfectly fine. Then start downgrading them if they are not firing.

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

          This is my current thinking.

          I don't think you can cover Salah or KDB/Sterling with cheaper Liverpool or City assets, but it'll be interesting if the cheaper United guys can give Bruno a run for his money. Like you say, it's easier to downgrade.

          1. Karan14
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 2 days ago

            Yes plus Bruno just feels the best captain option when United have good fixtures atleast for start of the season. Martial & Rashford were not doing well away from home after restart.

            1. Goonsquad245
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 2 days ago

              Which fixtures do you think Bruno is the best captain option in?

              There's CPL/bha in 2 and 3, but do you not think Auba/Salah with WHU/ARS are better options for those two?

              I don't think I'd captain a united player until GW9 myself.

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

                I am happy to captain Bruno (bha) in GW3. Arsenal have got better defensively and the lower-half teams are not as good at home without fans.

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

              I want Martial to compliment Fernandes during easy fixture runs. Will try and keep Bruno regardless.

      2. THE WERNER DELUSION
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        my initial idea was Bruno+KDB + CAPTAIN (so Salah/Mane/Sterling) but Greenwood and Son are making it difficult

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          This is why FPL have priced KDB very well. As a (non-captain) set and forget, he's outmaneuvered by Son and others for value.

      3. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Swop then around. I think Rash and Tony are just as good options. Bruno looked poor to me the last 4-5 weeks. Living off Pens. Salah comes in and out of form and always has. KDB is the one I want all season

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Bruno just looked really tired to me, hoping a bit of rest will do him good, plus it's a bit of a risk not to have a space for him if he starts well, he's instrumental to the utd attack imo

      4. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I presume for this to work you start with 3x 12m players?

      5. Goonsquad245
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        I think go with 2 at a time based on who you're going to captain.

        The first 7 GWs looks like the Salah show to me aside from GW 2 and 5 - I'll be starting with Auba to cover GW2, and will maybe get Sterling in to cover 5 (unless Werner is hot).

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

        I am going to have two at a time until maybe I am rich enough to have three. I don't consider it "hokey cokey" as long as I'm leaving each one in for 6-8 weeks before switching. Bruno and KDB from week 3-9 seems good, then at GW10 there is a fixture swing which I'll address by reducing investment in United to get more Liverpool.

    23. bitm2007

      Pogba, Jorginho, Barkley, Emerson, Batshuayi, Mount, Tomori, Abraham and Pulisic have all tested positive for Coronavirus this week, are there any other PL players to add to that list ?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Souček

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

        Consider Ritchie - better fixtures to start than Souček.

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

          I have both and will play 3 of Taylor,KWP,Justin,Soucek,Richie.

          1. merin

            What does the rest of your team look like?

            1. The 12th Man
              • 7 Years

              look down

        2. merin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Cheers. I prefer Ritchie over Soucek as WHU have terrible fixtures.

      3. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 2 days ago

        Soucek

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 days ago

          Or Mooy

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

            Wish I could trust Mooy. Always looks decent, Brighton are a minefield for rotation though.

    25. BNMC
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 2 days ago

      Would you save 0.5 in the bank here? Assuming Doh moves to Spurs.

      McCarthy and Doh -> KWP and Lloris

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

        A

      Im currently on-
      McCarthy
      TAA,Doherty,KWP,Justin
      Auba(c),Son, Soucek,Richie
      Werner,Ings

      Steer,Fernandes,Taylor,Brewster

      0.5m for Ings > Martial in GW2 and bench Soucek for Fernandes.
      Auba > KDB in wk 3

        No Salah? Bold.

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

          Can only captain one of Auba or Salah. So its Salah or Auba not both.

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

            I think they both will score a lot, so I want both

            Don't do that if you have the bench to cover it...

            I'd rather have Son and then decide what to do GW3 with an Auba downgrade if you go that route.

      2. The 12th Man
