    I know you all own taa. I have him as well.

    But how do you pass on VVD?
    Who is better value elsewhere?
    He simply works as 8.5 mid/forward
    TAA crosses + VVD goals are heavenly.

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      What about Robbo?

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Not much different to vvd imo.

    2. Silent Friend
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      not this time

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      How many clean sheets do you expect in the first 10?
      I personally think not more than 5.
      TAA and Robbo makes sense because of their attacking returns but not VVD imo

      1. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Check out liverpool cs stats last year. It's not about match difficulty

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Allisson was injured.

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      TAA the best value for money in the game.

    5. SalahMane Rush T
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 24 days ago

      Robbo Missed a bunch of games and still scored higher than VVD. As a Liverpool and FPL addict, I love VVD and have often had him in my squad, but having TAA and Robertson (Carlos) in the team is worth more points than the 7/7.5 option in midfield

  2. Dain Bramage
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Probably starting with no keeper!! I want Pope and hopefully to carry my free transfer to week 3 I just don’t don’t think it’s worth the hassle.

    1. Jullepuu
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Pope is not worth it this year

      1. Dain Bramage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        I disagree he wants England No 1 spot

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      You mean you're getting Pope GW1 and just having no keeper in GW1?
      If so , that is not a huge issue

      1. Dain Bramage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Maybe but I’m going 3 Liverpool at the back so I could switch vvd to Alison but I’m not happy with the rest of the team then. I know most will probably not agree with my choice but I honestly think they are the best value I the team. Maybe Keita but he’s more of let’s see.

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Triple Pool defence and no starting keeper for gw1... very different approach there to say the least. Can't say I agree with it but good luck!

          1. Dain Bramage
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Thanks after having Taa Rob I thought why not get Vvd they all definitely will get game time. Just hope they sort themselves out at back

        2. Ser Davos
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Only thong I would suggest is not get Alisson as tempting it may seem.

          TAA VVD Robbo are the three and should Salah and/or Mane become "essential" they're not so far away

          1. Dain Bramage
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            12 m though and the likes of mini and Keita wanting to play. Couple of quiet games and who knows who plays

    3. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Good decisive decision imo. Pope will make up for it over the season as a set & forget.

      Has the +1m against a 4.5m gk effected your squad choices elsewhere?

      1. Dain Bramage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Not really I’ve still 1m in bank and picked Ali over Son, son let me down too many times last year

        1. Pep bites Kun
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 1 day ago

          Yep agree. Ali can be great when fit. Like the decision. BOL!

    Expected bites (xB) - the number of posters expected to bite depending on how nonsensical a claim the OP makes.

    1. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      His post was not nonsense, but it would've helped if he had mentioned his actual point at the end of it. By not doing that, it looked like he meant those players were better value picks than Bruno which they aren't.

      1. Blush Response
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        My issue is it’s that kind of interpretation of stats that give things like xA a bad name.

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

      To be fair, as CS says I could have explained my point at the end of my post.

      The amount of people triggered by it was astounding though - crazy stuff.

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Is it not more that you've been triggered by Bruno?

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

        I just went back and read what was going on.

        While I’m not going to pretend I understood all of what was said, I must say that you stood your ground and defended your corner admirably.

        Even had a couple big boys at you too. 🙂

    Ehhh may have cracked it with 3 pool big guns....

      Can then do salah or mane or auba —> KBD/Bruno

      Gives easy transfer options

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Three 12m mids is not worth ripping your whole team apart imo.
      You'll probably never captain Mane.. so no way you can justify the 12m spent on him.
      Mane + ASM -> Rashford + Ziyech

    Think this is me for at least 4-6 gws....... All reviews welcome.
    Mc carthy
    TAA, Vinagre, Doherty
    Pereira, Auba, Salah, Son, Soucek.
    Kane, Mitrovic
    Subs. Nyland, Mitchell/ferguson/Johnson(havent decided which one yet)
    Taylor.,Brewster

    Playing 3,5,2 this season

    Notes. Brewster in as long as he gets move to PL club. If not ill be downgrading Doherty to a 4.5 and going possibly 6 million and have option to go 3, 4,3.
    Think im positioned to jump on any bandwagons. Ie Timo, United players etc.

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      So you'll not use your first 6 FT's?

  6. A-L
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    Any Chelsea fans have an insight on how nailed Reece James is? Lamps to be starting, benching every week or rotating?

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

      Azpi at first, suspect James comes in for easier games when more attacking impetus is needed

      1. A-L
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Were they taking each others minutes or playing at the same time post restart?

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

          Azpi always started post lockdown. James would force Azpi into LB or CB with Alonso on the other side in a 3-4-3

          1. A-L
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Ok cool that's good to know - thanks! Might be a wait & see with LIV in GW2

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 1 day ago

    VDB so tempting at 7.0.

    1. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah could be good, might wait a couple of weeks to see the role he takes up - but he might have hauled by then

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Also may not have started by then though 😉

    2. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      8 goals 5 assists or something in Holland

  8. Silent Friend
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    People bench KDB Martial Bruno in Gw1, dont you think their price will drop and you will lose value??

    1. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Will be locked until GW2 starts I imagine

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Not if they are not injured.

      2. Dthinger
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        They will be locked until transfers for GW2 start, so the night of the 12th I would expect prices to start to move. But at that point, no one will be selling them, so why would their prices drop? If anything they will be going up really fast.

      3. Jacky boy
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        There is no reason to be locked. They will definitely rise

    2. Egg noodle
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Why would their price drop?

    3. Jacky boy
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Lol they will rise

    4. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      And then rise crazy in the next 5 gameweeks?

    5. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Not selecting/benching for gw1 myself, but doubt their prices will drop even without mass selection for gw2. This FPL pricing algorithm seems to have some tweakable variables

  9. olly:)
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Any wolves fans about or anyone who has any idea whether or not Podence is expected to be in the starting lineup, was impressed with him at the end of last season but they have a lot of depth in that area.

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I think the loss of Doherty is going to hurt Wolves attacking wise.

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Read somewhere that Traore will start most games at RWB. And Podence Jota Jiminez start as the front 3.

      1. Flaming Flamingo
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Or Wolves could switch to a front 2, in which case Podence/Jota/Neto are fighting for one spot.

  10. Adambailey7
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    When switching to city assets what’s your thoughts on sterling over KDB?

    1. Dthinger
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      He can be more explosive but also less consistent. KDB will get points nearly every week and Sterling will get you 15 big hauls, but a lot of 2 pointers

    2. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      I'll probably get Sterling off the back of a better end to the season. Might reallocate to KDB and/or Aguero when all are fit and have a better picture of how advanced KDB plays

  11. Wag the Drog
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 1 day ago

    a) Armstrong (cry, TOT, bur, WBA, che)
    b) Soucek (NEW, ars, WOL, lei, tot)
    c) ASM (whu, BRI, tot,BUR, MUN)
    d) other under 6.0

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      A

  12. FOO FIGHTER
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 1 day ago

    One thing is for sure, there are loads of options this season to build a mofo side without any Pep roulette.

    1. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Which other team could score 5 goals in a match against almost any opposition?

    2. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Difficult to judge from this side of gw3 though. I hope you're right as there are better priced potential assets outside city.

  13. Benjixclusyv

    3 months, 1 day ago

    Suggestions?

    McCarthy, 4.0

    TAA, Vinagre, Saliba, Mitchell, 4.0

    Salah, Auba, Son, ASM, Soucek

    Werner, Mitro, DCL

    1.0 itb to fund KDB/Bruno moves.

    1. MAXIMIN EFFORT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Soucek doubtful

        Thank you. Not much else to like in that 5.0 range. Maybe Kalvin Phillips who should be on some sets for Leeds

    What's everyone's thoughts about the bench boost in GW1 strategy? I'm very tempted to do it, mostly because my ideal GW1BB team is very close to what I was tempted to start with anyway playing normally. Thus you could postpone the WC easily until GW4 if you'd like that, but WCing straight away for GW2 doesn't seem like a bad idea as the Manchester teams start the season and you can get very quickly on them and any other bandwagons.

    1. A-L
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Too much uncertainty in GW1 for me. I'd rather save it for a DGW after playing a Wildcard later in the season

    2. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 1 day ago

      What's your bench?

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

      But it’s two chips used up very early in the season...

    4. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year

      BB without any City or United players in the team sounds out there.

  18. ivantys
      3 months, 1 day ago

      Best 5.5m midfielder worth getting that will last me through 8 weeks? (Planning to use wild card on week 9) I'm pondering over trezequet, schlupp, lundstrum, moutinho, armstrong.

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 1 day ago

        Saint-Maximin? Also like Lundstrum & Armstrong

        1. ivantys
            3 months, 1 day ago

            Was a bit worried that he doesn't start, and newcastle's fixtures don't look that easy but I guess I could consider him since I prefer taking a risk with 5.5m rather than just settling for 2 points every week.

              Lundstrum would be my choice if the contract is sorted out and he has assurance of starts. ASM was favoured by Bruce after lockdown in a more attacking equation, BUT that was when they were safe. Whether they will start the season with the same dynamic is debatable, but the guy has class & form. He doesn't play like the average 2 pointer

                  Yeah I like those sudden burst of points rather than constant 2 pointer. For a cheap midfielder, I prefer it to be either doesn't play at all or start a match with good chance of scoring.

                    In the low brackets I'm looking for players who are ambitious (want play for a bigger club & show it) I've also got Bissouma @ 4.5 - hoping he's the same and at least gets the mins.

                        Yeah that's why I was leaning towards Schlupp or Trezequet for high risk high return type of players. My 4.5 "throw" player is gordan too and not a regular 2 pointer so yeah if they fire blanks is fine for me too.

                          Looks like I might have found the gem i was looking for: podence from wolves. He has a 2/3 chance of starting with traore and jota. Seeing as neither were regular starters last season, he could well be first choice now.

                        I realised Lundstrum's points would be so much lower had he been a midfielder instead of a defender, at least 35 plus many bonuses lower so he's out of my choices already.

                          He was fairly consistent for attacking points above his price (when regularly playing), which is why he's still in my draft thoughts, but obviously contract & start risks exist.

                          He's watch-list for now.

                              Really cos his points would have been lower than even Henderson. That palace 6m guy is interesting though he has double digit goals the 2 seasons before last.

                  Is there anyone out there going without Salah. I did it towards the end of the season last year and it worked out, am I crazy?

                  Should I start with Kane if I am only going to captain him once in the first 6 weeks

                  Those going for Che Adams, are you sure he gets 60 mins? Shane Long is waiting.
                  What if he is subbed at half time if things are not going well?

                  TAA, Justin, KWP
                  Alli, Auba (c), Salah, ASM

                  Subs: Button, Mitchell, Taylor, Stephens

                  Good if I only know Che Adams is nailed, then I can have a balanced side. Please help!

                  Werner Ings Mitrovich

                  Transfer plan:
                  GW3 - Auba > Sterling
                  Ings > Jimenez

                  How could I get a Utd player in here
                  What if Son is deployed along side Kane.. that makes him a much prospective asset.
                  Also if DCL flourishes i intend to
                  DCL > Mitrovic
                  ASM >?

                  Thanks in advance

                        Robbo Missed a bunch of games and still scored higher than VVD. As a Liverpool and FPL addict, I love VVD and have often had him in my squad, but having TAA and Robertson (Carlos) in the team is worth more points than the 7/7.5 option in midfield
