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.

    What is the thinking around looking at "post-restart EPL stats"? Is this just to give us a better idea of how teams might perform in a fan-less environment? An indication of end of season form? ... or is there more to it than that? Curious.

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Seen this mentioned a few times on YouTube videos. I'm not sure it tells much given the context of the season at that point. A lot of teams had nothing to play for.

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I think that it was just a natural break point that did hit a restart button to an extent.

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

      so they can make out that Southampton are supremos and Liverpool defence is shite, when the opposite is probably true

    4. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      There's not really a long gap inbetween so the people performing then are more likely to continue performing unlike other years where end of season form has a 3 month gap inbetween

    5. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      It's a new season and every team has something to play for, i'm not looking that much at post covid results. Most are forgetting this game was about 3 Liverpool players getting 30-40 points and hoping the rest gets 20

      1. Ser Davos
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Some good points there

    6. jtreble
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Thanks all for your replies.

  2. COK3Y5MURF
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Jimenez's attacking potential affected by Doherty's departure?

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Definitely.

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

      Yep

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

      Not sure about that. Doherty more of a goal scorer than a creator.

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Doherty was equal 3td degender for assists last season, behind TAA and Robbo.

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

          Yup. Underlying numbers tell a different story though.

    4. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Not if Traore gets to play RB.

    5. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I think Adama assisted quite a lot of Jimenez goals last season, and i'd assume he plays more next season as Doherty left.

    6. Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      If Maitland-Niles replaces him then yes, if Traore plaws as RWB then it might actually get better. I can see a 352 which would have Traore as RWB and Neto/Podence/Jota alongside Jimenez.

    7. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Who says he is departing?

      1. GREEN IS GOOD
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Jose Mourinho

    8. Reeker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Swapped him for Ings already

  3. JURGENAUT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 5 days ago

    If there wasn’t a blank Gw1, what would your teams have looked like?

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      KDB for Auba, Bruno for Son.

      1. JURGENAUT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 5 days ago

        What would the other 9 be?

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Same as what it is now. Posted it earlier today.

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

      My GW2 team

      McCarthy (4.0)
      TAA Laporte Boly Vinagre 4.0
      KDB Foden Fernandes Greenwood Soucek
      Werner Martial (4.5)

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Interesting team. Have not seen anyone yet with a City triple-up as early as GW2. Even less so with Foden and Laporte. Very unique

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Basically like this mine would look too

      2. No Professionals
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Wc gw2?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Yeah

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Completely different and that's why I'm gonna WC GW2.

    4. Bun Rab L3D2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      The same. Benching as I don't want transfers already taken I.e. Auba to Bruno/Kdb etc

    5. Hairy Potter
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Probably would have Taylor, maybe Wood, KDB, maybe Mahrez, Rashford or Greenwood.

  4. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years

    No one knows when the first video of Mark & Az on FPL Blackbox will be out?

    i like soucek as my 5th or even 4th mid ,i dont get this whu crap fixtures theory,

    NEW easy
    arsenal hardly difficult
    WOL average
    leicester defence obliterated

    by gw5 time to reasess

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I think these fixtures suit Soucek. West Ham will go direct and try to make most of set pieces.

      With Soucek, I don't think you can bench him much. It will be hard to predict his points.

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Agree. He is a great asset.

    2. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Arsenal and wolves are difficult opposition. You're a member, look at the stats

      1. Jordan.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        stats ,schmats,i just watch footy ,for me neither team are top drawer

        1. Egg noodle
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          If the top drawer only has room for 1 team i.e. man city then yes I agree.

          1. Jordan.
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            no worries egg ,good to have a personal opinion and debate good luck for the season..

    3. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Like him as well, at the moment he is my 4th mid in a 343 draft

    4. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      ah and also i have none of those opponents defences,sorry a critical omission

      "... by gw5 time to reasess ...". :).

    6. Guba
      • 5 Years

      Way too overhyped on this site in my personal opinion

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

    Anyone just going Greenwood for United cover?

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

      After reading my own comment back to myself... I must be insane

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

        it's an option, plenty of alternatives

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

          Those fixtures tho...

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

      chances here,tony atm but could easily swap,greenwood looks a jolly good player,1.5 coins as well.

    3. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      i was, but now making plans for a placeholder for Bruno instead

    4. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Very likely for me.. But won't be getting him before gw3.

    5. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Looking at to double up with Martial

    6. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Me, plan to get either KdB or Fernandes in for Son.

    7. Pad Randa
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Me, as of 30 min ago.

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

      Think I'm gonna double up with Bruno until GW12. Terrified of going without him

  7. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on this team? Any recommendations highly appreciated as I am writing my master thesis and have limited time to research

    McCarthy
    TAA Davies Vinagre Justin
    Salah Auba Madisson
    Kane Werner Mitrovic
    ___
    Nyland Johnson 4.5 4.5

    Plan is to do Auba + Maddisson to KDB + Greenwood in gw3. Could get Son instead of Kane and have enough itb to upgrade him to Fernandes. But I somewhat like having a premium striker in case someone like Aguero starts firing. Easy downgrade to Ings/Jiminez as well

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Would rather have Bruno than Greenwood as only Utd asset, so prefer the Son to Bruno plan. Good team though. Good luck with your thesis

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Thanks mate

  8. TimoTime
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Maddison or Barnes?

    1. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Actually have Maddison

    2. Jacky boy
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Mad is on

    3. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Maddi

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Barnes for the shooting stats, Maddison more nailed to start each week

    5. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Maddison, I feel like Barnes is overpriced by 0.5

    6. Tomerick
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Neither. Leicester aren’t a good bet for the start of the season this year as much as it pains me to say.

  9. linkafu
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Who get more points this season:

    A KDB
    B Bruno
    C Sterling

    1. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Bruno methinks, Messi will grab all the bonus points at City!

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

      BAC - based on minutes mainly

    3. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A

    4. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      KDB

    5. Bun Rab L3D2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      A. If he keeps pens.

    6. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      CAB

    7. KAPTAIN KANE

      The order you have it in

  10. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Anyone got any thoughts on Naby Keita as an FPL option?

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

      I was considering him as a short term punt but it seems like Henderson might be back soon so his minutes will be a concern. As Liverpool’s fixtures aren’t great anyway, I’m not sure if he is worth the risk.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        And for a one week punt first GW against Leeds?

        1. The Sarjeant
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          If I wasn’t going with Mane, I would.

        2. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Excellent in that scenario

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

            Yup

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Good option for draft teams

    3. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      It is a no for me... Thiago might be incoming as well

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I just see it as using up a pool spot.
      I know at one point I’ll want TAA, Salah and Mane so will keep it free ready

    5. The Sarjeant
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      He’s good Liverpool ‘cover’! 😉

      1. The Sarjeant
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        In all seriousness I quite fancy him if he was to nail down a spot.

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

    6. Greasy Grealish Gang
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I got him nailed. He has excelled since the re-start, perhaps feels a tad more comfortable playing without crowds? Depends on your team dynamic but I'd guess he'll a great option at his current price.

      He costs a Liverpool slot but this means I have funds for pricier options while still having 3 Liverpool players. Not that scared about playing time.

      1. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        PLaying a one week GW 1 team with Pool defence double up so comes down to:

        A) Salah (c) and ASM (whu)
        B) Auba (c) and Keita (LEE)

  11. Bank$y
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Let’s not forget that City will likely sign someone this summer in addition to if the Messi deal happens. No offence to Ake but that’s not their usual marquee signing.

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Signed Torres too

  12. jason_ni
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    So with Pogba getting covid, it looks like more than ever we will need some depth on the bench!

    Who knows who will come down positive the day before deadline, might not even hear about it either.

    I've always been a fan of a light bench to start with, maybe one playing 4.5def, then 2 fodders, knowing the starting 11 is sure enough to get minutes, no more!

    1. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Wow... haven't heard about Pogba. Covid has made FPL a minefield to navigate! Having second thoughts about benching Bruno GW1

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      We should get furlough points

      1. jason_ni
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        80% of his projected points? I like it.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Yes haha

  13. ThisPostsOnFire
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Who do we reckon will start at wing back in Doherty's place? Traore or Maitland Nyles?

    1. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      They will sign another Portuguese wing back imo

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Cancelo

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

      I guess Traore in the first few GWs. Maitland Niles to take over later with Traore moving forward to his usual role.

    3. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Hard to say.. Depends on whether or not they want to use Traore further forward

    4. UnluckyXI
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Right now Traore, looks like the transfer might get drawn out so doubt AMN will start the first game, then they play city so I'd rather wait and see than have either in my team from the start

  14. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Which scores more over the medium term?

    A) Bruno | Egan | Vinagre | Soucek | (1st bench: Brewster/Mitchell)

    B) VVD | Doherty | Mitrovic | Pereira | (1st bench: Soucek)

    Thanks

          I thought it was odd but Chelsea team will be Werner, Ziyech and 9 others as there are so many of them in quarantine now

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Really nice so long as you are content with that as your united cover

      1. Pad Randa
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Well, yeah, that's the thing. It's basically a question of whether Bruno by himself outscores Greenwood and another playing mid-priced forward AND a premium defender. He very well might do, but finding that extra 3.0 will be REALLY tough. I'll probably end up dropping Adams for Brewster once the transfer to SHU takes place, but that still leaves me needing to drop Doherty to a Justin or similar in order to fund Bruno.

        1. tomasjj
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          I am in the same boat, considering the impact on the whole of Greenwood or Bruno.
          Rash is in between though - a middle way.

  18. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…

    First serious ask this year!

    A. Doherty Bruno* Mitrovic (+4.5 fwd) (maybe Son Gw1)
    B. Doherty Ings* Greenwood (+4.5 fwd) (Ings to Martial gw2)
    C. Son Ings* Lascelles/Justin (+4.5 fwd) (Ings to Martial gw2)
    D. Martial Ings Egan/Dier (+ 4.5 mid)

    McCarthy 4.0
    TAA Vinagre ___ (Taylor 4.0)
    Salah Auba Arm/ASM Soucek ___
    Werner ___ ___

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

    Will Spurs go 3-5-2/3-4-3 with the signing on Doherty? Him and Davies could both be absolute belters for FPL if so.

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Davies at 5.0 could be a steal

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

      Can't see it, Mourinho is pretty stuck in his ways so will probably continue to play variants of 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1

    3. HuttonDressedasLahm
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      See below. Puts me off Doherty now 🙁

  20. Bank$y
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Dubravka is out for the first few games at least. Think about this if you have Fernandez or Lascelles in your defence. The Newcastle injury hoodoo rolls on, as with every season.

    1. Richard Richard (AKA: Anzhi…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Damn. I like Lascelles at 4.5

    2. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Will they be weaker without him now?

  21. HuttonDressedasLahm
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Does Doherty to Spurs ruin his own, and Wolves defence potential?

    Was set on Dier, Doherty and Vinagre, but not sure now

    Doherty will be blunted under Jose surely and also a back 4 not wing back

    1. jason_ni
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Not sure it will ruin wolves from a defensive perspective. Probably does blunt some of their threat from RWB, as who will offer what Doherty does!

      I do think it ruins Dohertys potential for points, I just cant see him having the same freedom to wander into the box that he had at wolves.

    2. TMF86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Wolves - yes.

      Spurs - who knows. I have him and will stick just because of their initial run. Seems a decent player to be able to transfer if need be

    3. linkafu
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Wolves defense still looked solid even playing without Doherty.

    4. Jordan.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      he'll just replace and do what aurier did,i fancy him more at spurs than i did at wolves ,first time in my team today.

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 5 days ago

      At 6m Doherty still better than any mid up to 8m.

    6. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      It could make Wolves potential better if they sign a defencive RB and ply Adama as RW to play wide.

  22. linkafu
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Mc Carthy
    TAA Vinagre Justin
    Salah Auba Son Soucek Maddison
    Ings Jimenez

    Nyland Mitchell Brewster Douglas

    Ings to Martial GW2
    Auba to KDB GW3

  23. Pep Roulette

    Predicting the Wolves team is so difficult!

    1. Silent Friend

      why?

      1. Pep Roulette

        The wingbacks, the wingers, the formation!

      Rui
      Traore Boly Coady Saiss Vinagre

      Jimenez Jota

      there ya go

      1. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        Podence/Jota

  24. HankMarvin
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Thoughts on this please folks:

    McCarthy, Nyland
    Walker-Peters, Vinagre, TAA, Saliba, (Mitchell)
    Salah, Son, ASM, Auba, Ziyech
    Mitro, Ings, (Davis)

    1.0 ITB

    Not sure whether going 442 or 352 for the opener yet, tempted by Ziyech to Mount or Deli, obviously Davis to a Easter if he’s loaned out

  25. Thewoodyhorse
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    With all the transfer merry-go-rounds and new players (mostly Chelsea), I'm thinking it's best to stick with the tried and tested solid picks (sheff Utd/liverpool/wolves defence, Salah/mane/son/Auba, Vardy/Ings/Jimi) until the new boys settle in.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any 4.0 alternatives to Ferguson?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Johnson at WHU

    2. AzzaroMax99
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Mitchell?

  27. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Doherty please stay! He will be in 90% active teams if he joins Spurs ffs

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Deal is done, he's going

      1. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        sauce?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 1 Year

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

      He really won't

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Not a great option if he joins Spurs!

    4. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Eh? I was more interested in him at Wolves

    5. Bobby Digital
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Dier and Davies 1.0m cheaper

    6. GreenWindmill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      I'm taking him out of my team. Prepared to bring him in it looks like I'm wrong after a few weeks but Tottenham's defence has been worse than Wolves' for a long time and I'm not sure if his goals/assists will be dramatically affected or not but I'd lean marginally towards them dropping rather than rising.

      1. Silent Friend
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 5 days ago

        CS is not matter with Doc

        1. GreenWindmill

          O...kay, I kind of like my players to get points however they come but that's just me 🙂

    Seeing a bit of love for Keita, genuine option?

    1. Thewoodyhorse

      Nno

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

      I'm trying to decipher this - some decent seasons in Austria and Germany but can't remember being blown away when I've seen him at Liverpool

  29. RED_ARMY
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 5 days ago

    Mourinho taking Korean lessons means he will be relying on HMS more?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Funny acronym to use when his name, Son, is the same number of letters.

    2. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years

    McCarthy, Nyland

    TAA, Doherty, Justin, Ayling, Mitchell

    Salah, Auba, Son, Armstrong, Soucek

    Werner, Mitrovic, Davis

    Plan, 1.5 ITB to do Son & Auba -> Bruno & KDB in due course
