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.

    White signing a new contract at BRI is one of two things.

    1. He will start alongside Dunk.

    2. They want to sell him to the highest bidder.

    Could have another nailed 4.5 on the cards.

    1. Limbo

      I'd imagine they're securing his contract against a perm move back to Leeds.

    2. Flair

      Could be that they play a 3 ATB. Useful for Lamptey and Ryan.

    Rate this draft please, assuming Vinagre is nailed

    McCarthy
    TAA | Vinagre | Justin
    Salah | Auba | Son | Soucek
    Werner | Ings | Mitrovic

    (Nyland Taylor Stephens Mitchell)

    Appreciate any tips!

      Feel like I've seen this draft 5 times before. Pretty template, I wouldn't feel great starting Mitro, Justin and Soucek. I'd rather downgrade Son to Ziyech and upgrade Justin to Davies/Dier

        Justin should be nailed for a couple of months imo & played well after the restart

          Leicester are dreadful defensively

  3. Pukki Party

    Thoughts? Money itb to do chelsea mid to KdB or Fernandes. Undecided on Ryan/KwP vs McCarthy/Lamptey. Will decide on Chelsea mid depending on Pulisic fitness, between him and a punt on Ziyech.

    Ryan
    TAA Robbo Vinagre KWP
    Salah Son (che mid) Anguissa
    Jimenez Antionio

    Button Greenwood Davis 4.0

    1. Ser Davos

      Like it, like the thought process. Trying to optimise the 3 Pool slots is tricky

    Messi will be a midfielder and be 14.0 so everyone should have 2.0 in the bank in every draft.

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

      Not everyone will be in on Messy @ 14.0

      Nope.

      You priced Havertz at 8.5 or 8.0?

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

        7.5. He wont be more than Ziyeck or Pulisic.

        If he is at 8.0, Dunk becomes a 4.5.

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

          Havertz will be 8.5. Fernandes/Ziyech coming from inferior leagues, Havertz arriving from the Bundesliga as a wonderkid with an 80 million price tag.

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

            So more than what Pulisic cost when he joined? Pulisic was also 'the next big thing"

            Werner at 9.5 when everyone was preaching 10 or 10.5.

            7.5 or max 8 for Havertz.

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

              Wrong, Pulisic had a lot less hype around him. The consensus was he'd lost his form and Dortmund had gotten a great deal. Fair point otherwise

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

                Pulisic had alot less hype around him?

                He is already running the CHE team, when fit of course.

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

                  When he signed...

                  Right now he looks like Hazard!

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

                    So they will make Havertz at 8.5 as well?

                2. Manani
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 5 days ago

                  pulisic is the next big thing only if you are american or lurk around reddit

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

                    Pulisic is a quality asset. I would have him over Rashford and Martial pending fitness.

                    1. St Pauli Walnuts
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      3 months, 5 days ago

                      As usual, you're missing the point. Pulisic is a quality asset but he improved this season, there wasn't the same levels of hype with him that there is with Havertz and he also hadn't posted as good as numbers as Havertz had in the Bundesliga. Havertz could easily be 8.5, maybe 9. I'd be shocked if he is 7.5

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

                        Yep - Havertz scored nearly as many league goals last year as Pulisic did in his entire time at Dortmund.

        2. sully29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          There's not even the slightest chance Havertz will be 7.5.

        3. Zilla
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 5 days ago

          Why? Havertz is better than both of them.

      Looks good, cheaper routes into spurs defence than Lloris imo but looks good and balanced non the less. How and he do you plan to get Manchester assets in?

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

        Lloris set forget.

        1. nico05
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Very true

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

      This team will not be possible due to Havertz cost. So this is pointless

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

        Yes and majority said Werner would be 10.5.

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

          I saw very few say that. So I am not sure what majority you are referring too.

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

            You missed alot of price predictions then. Majority had Werner 10+

  6. CFC1990

    What do you think of this?

    Fernades in GW1 does weaken the side but I would like him as a captain option in GW2.

    McCarthy
    KWP, Vinagre, TAA, Justin
    ASM, Auba, Salah, Soucek
    Mitrovic, Jiminez

    Nyland, C. Taylor, Fernandes, Davis

            I may go for both, rather than Kane+. Both had a great consistency value last season

            Although .. I like the option of the Kane to Aguero switch further out & that price point suits my med-term team strategy so far

    4. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 5 days ago

      Messy price point 🙂

      'IF' Messi joins the PL with City. I've seen potential price points of 20-23m being discussed on other sites & Twitter ...

      What are the thoughts on here - is this FPL price ludicrous or realistic?

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

        Ludicrous - 14m is the max they have ever priced a player in FPL

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

          He's better than any previous player, so 14.5-15m in my book.

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

            Possibly but I think they won't want to price out the masses.

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

        14M is the realistic scenario. Salah had an extremely similar campaign in 2017/18 and was priced at 13M. Messi's reputation should push him up 1M, though 1.5M-2M wouldn't be surprising.

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

          Salah did not have similar to Messi what drugs are you on?

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

            I'd pipe down pal, you've got a lot of arrogant and misinformed opinions on here. But I've got time, so:

            Salah - 32 goals 12 assists in 2905 minutes
            ,
            Messi - 25 goals, 21 assists in 2881 minutes

            2 more goal contributions in 24 less minutes.

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

          Please don't ever mention Messi and Salah in the same sentence. There is no comparison between the two in any facet, regardless of statistics.

        Hey guys,
        KWP Bruno Werner in a 442
        Or Greenwood Son Richarlison in a 352

        So:

        Ryan
        TAA, Egan, KWP, Doherty
        KDB, Salah, Bruno, Pereira
        Werner Mitrovic

        Or

        Ryan

        Richarlison Mitrovic

        1. Gingerman

            First one for me, Richarlison just no. But I'd have Son for the start.

            If he's priced out-of-the-ballpark then it will shake up the template teams. Could make it more interesting. I thought Auba with his record at BL would rip it up, but he's been brought to earth in PL.

            Going out on a limb and saying....Arsenal.

            - Stronger at the back with Arteta.
            -@FUL and v WHU are nice looking fixtures to open up.
            - David Luiz (hopefully) will not be first choice.

            Spurs have a fantastic run of fixtures to start the season. I have no issues with starting the season with Doherty on the roster and seeing where things go. The clean sheet potential is definitely going to be in place while you get to see how he'll be involved in the attack.

            At worst, he'll retain value through this stretch and you can move him out if he's not being everything you dreamed he would be. At that price point, you've got a lot of places to move.

            . . . or I could be wrong.

              3 months, 5 days ago

              There are 5m options in that Spurs defence with the same clean sheet potential though. Paying an extra 1m for very uncertain attacking potential...

              1. St. Stephen XI
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 5 days ago

                I have one of those as well in Davies. I feel comfortable taking a few weeks to see how Doherty will fit while enjoying the buffet of clean sheets coming from Spurs.

                  Double Spurs defence feels like a risk not worth taking to me mate.

              Not necessarily. We don't like him, but he's got 2nd season real potential which has been shown to work.

              The real question is whether Doherty embeds gw1 and who is the prime pick at Wolves

            His attacking intent will be slowly stifled under a huge mou-shaped depression.

            Worse option than at Wolves

            Worth 6M depends on your own judgement and prediction as to how he'll do. I believe he is, others won't and they'll be justified in thinking so.

          8. Make America Greta Again
            • 6 Years

            Better imo. I feel Spurs will get better and Wolves worse.

          9. mb1983
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 5 days ago

            I'm thinking worse. Based on his history at Wolves, he looked good value at 6m. But moving to another club there's suddenly uncertainty around exactly what his role will be (will Mourinho damage his attacking returns?), if/when he'll start games, whether the team will return as many clean sheets as we'd expect from Wolves, etc. So it becomes more of a punt really.

            He was in my draft but if he moves to Spurs then I'm probably cutting him loose.

          Why all the love for Mitrovic??
          Fulham will struggle big time and do people forget Mitrovic from his last premier league campaign??
          Useless and a poor disciplinary record

          1. sully29
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            He did quite well at the start of his last FPL campaign, as I remember. We don't have to keep him all season.

          2. mattyb09
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 5 days ago

            11 goals 4 assists last EPL campaign. Fulham and he figure to be a little better equipped this time around, fairly favorable fixtures to start the season, nice cheap price point for their only goal threat.

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

              Fulham are much less attack minded this time - not the same team. Comfortably the lowest scores in the top 4 of the championship

              1. sandman58
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Exactly my thinking

              2. mattyb09
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                So with more players with Prem experience (including a still young Mitrovic), they will score less than the 34 goals they netted in 2018-2019? I'd peg them for 10 more this time around.

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

                  Simply pointing out reference to previous campaign could be misleading. If you take that reference point you need to look at the final part of the season when they became “sensible” and not the freewheeling start when Mitro was a hit

                  Decent fixtures but the poorest of the promoted teams by a distance last season

              3. sully29
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 5 days ago

                Yet Mitrovic still finished top scorer in the championship.

                Ultimately we don't care if Fulham struggle, as long as mitro brings in sufficient points while they do so for the short time we own him.

                1. pingissimus

                  Ok - fair dos

                  I’m seeing a poorish season in PL last time - exact equivalent of Ayew last season. Playing for a weak team that isn’t going to be attack minded. How good are good fixtures for Fulham?

                  Prefer money elsewhere personally

                • 2 Years

                Brewster should get a loan move and be golden

                With lots of options in midfield though, Mitro is the 2nd striker not the third. Can imagine many will have Brewster too.

            Home games for attacking players even against leaky top 6 sides aren’t bad

              It's a valid observation. United only have 2 games against soft defences before they're up against a string of well-organised ones. Hardly woth getting those premiums in for 1-0 victories. City have tougher fixtures but I can see them scoring more goals.

                Fair, however I would say that it’s those games you want the likes of Bruno for and all those defences are not well organised, you could even say with influx of new players they are likely to be unsettled.

                That said it’s no golden run and I’m tempted to hold on further than a single investment myself.

            Exactly, glad someone said it, I don't want more than 1 United asset for this run. After that double up, triple up, whatever works

            I think generally players will be cheaper due to Covid

            Only certain clubs get held to ransom for ridiculous prices

            Easy to judge a player by FPL standards as opposed to real life

            Part and parcel of having Mendes in your club. Considering they got a player like Neves in the Championship and are now in Europe, I'm sure they'll take accept the drawbacks of low selling with the players Mendes can give

            Doherty's contract is not at 200k per week wages plus no homegrown status.

            Bargain at £12m though.

          Doherty 6.0 nailed in my team at Spurs. He will trump whatever Aurier had to offer.

            Trumps him for price as well though.

          A) Ziyech & Greenwood (as 4th mid)
          Or
          B) Bruno & Soucek (as 4th Mid)

          No other Utd
          Have Werner

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 1 Year

            Soucek as 4th mid is so uninspiring tbf.

              Yeah Tell me about it.
              My current set up is

              McCarthy / Nyland
              TAA / KWP / Vinagre / Saliba / Johnson
              Salah / Auba / Ziyech / Greenwood / Stephens
              Werner / Ings / 4.5
              I have £0 ITB

              Would love to have Bruno but means would have to downgrade Greenwood to £5m and upgrade Ziyech as Auba will become KDB from GW3 and Salah is a season keeper.

            It feels like Utd will definitely get a RW in whether it's Sancho or someone else, therefore GW might be limited to bench more often than you like.

            1. St Pauli Walnuts
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 5 days ago

              If it isn't Sancho though and is say Brooks, would he really keep Greenwood out of the team much? Brooks is a decent player but you'd think he'd play the understudy of that pair.

        15. Dammed Utd

          Going bit different this year folks

          GK McCarthy
          Def... Tierney...Trent.... Doherty... Azpil... Stevens
          Mid .... Ali... Salah... Armstrong... Ziyech...Max
          Forward Jimenez... Calvert.. Lewin... Haller

          Thinking of bench boost game 1

          1. FOO FIGHTER

            You are spreading the points nicely.

            Haller is an utter flop though.

            1. Dammed Utd
              • 8 Years

              I think Haller have a big season for the hammers

            This text formatting hurts my eyes, GK might be a good shout as a back-up keeper mind?

          There's lots of talk about either benching a Utd player GW1 or bringing one in for GW2. How about Man City? Without Doherty and Jonny injured too, aren't they significantly weaker for their GW2 fixture? Cheers

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 1 Year

            Everyone is predicting GW2 City and UTD when GW1 is a blank for them.

            WC's, benchings of Bruno and loads of hits incoming 😀
