Scout Notes

Which FPL assets were involved in latest round of Nations League action?

All Fantasy Premier League assets have completed their last round of international duties ahead of the Gameweek 1 deadline.

With just a few days gap between Nations League action and Premier League responsibilities, there have been a few busy schedules for some players.

We have detailed which players were the most involved for their countries over the last week, to help you prepare for the new season.

ARSENAL

  • Bernd Leno (Germany) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Granit Xhaka (Switzerland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Sead Kolasinac (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – 84 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Kieran Tierney (Scotland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Ainsley Maitland-Niles (England) – Unused substitute | 3 minutes

Kieran Tierney (£5.5m) played on the left-hand side of a back-three for Scotland, where he has been deployed for Arsenal recently. After playing 90 minutes in his country’s first Nations League match, the £5.5m man was given the night off for a win over the Czech Republic.

Meanwhile, Granit Xhaka (£5.5m) got an assist for Switzerland as they were beaten 2-1 by Ukraine and Bernd Leno (£5.0m) got 90 minutes in one of Germany’s outings.

ASTON VILLA

  • Conor Hourihane (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • John McGinn (Scotland) – 79 minutes | 71 minutes
  • Tyrone Mings (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Jack Grealish (England) – Unused substitute | 14 minutes

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

  • Aaron Connolly (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 77 minutes
  • Joël Veltman (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Leandro Trossard (Belgium) – 10 minutes | Unused substitute

BURNLEY

  • Robbie Brady (Republic of Ireland) – 20 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Nick Pope (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute

Robbie Brady (£5.0m) was the only Burnley player of real note during the international break, as his corner was the one converted by Shane Duffy against Bulgaria.

CHELSEA

  • Antonio Rüdiger (Germany) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Timo Werner (Germany) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Kai Havertz (Germany) – Unused substitute | Not involved
  • Jorginho (Italy) – Unused substitute
  • Mason Mount (England) – Unused substitute | 30 minutes
  • Andreas Christensen (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Mateo Kovačić (Croatia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • N’Golo Kanté (France) – 90 minutes | 63 minutes
  • Olivier Giroud (France) – 90 minutes | 27 minutes
  • Michy Batshuayi (Belgium) – Not involved | 90 minutes
  • Tammy Abraham (England) – Not involved | Unused substitute

While Timo Werner (£9.5m) played 180 minutes across Germany’s two Nations League matches, he did add to his appeal by scoring in the first.

Meanwhile, owners of Kai Havertz (£8.5m) will be pleased at his distinct lack of involvement for Germany, an unused substitute in the first game and not involved at all in the second.

Elsewhere, Olivier Giroud (£7.0m) converted a penalty for France, while Mateo Kovačić (£5.5m) provided an assist for Croatia in the same match.

CRYSTAL PALACE

  • Wayne Hennessey (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • James McCarthy (Republic of Ireland) – 70 minutes | Unused substitute

There was some potentially concerning news for Tyrick Mitchell (£4.0m) owners in the Republic of Ireland’s international break.

James McCarthy (£4.5m) got back from injury in their first Nations League match, which should bolster the central midfield options at Crystal Palace for Gameweek 1.

It could mean that Jairo Riedewald (£4.5m), who has played there for most of pre-season, could return to left-back duties and force Mitchell out of his position for the clash with Southampton.

EVERTON

  • Seamus Coleman (Republic of Ireland) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Moise Kean (Italy) – 4 minutes | Not involved
  • Muhamed Bešić (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – 90 minutes | 60 minutes
  • Jordan Pickford (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Michael Keane (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Jonas Lössl (Denmark) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Lucas Digne (France) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Gylfi Sigurdsson (Iceland) – Not involved | 90 minutes

FULHAM

  • Aleksandar Mitrović (Serbia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Stefan Johansen (Norway) – 90 minutes | 71 minutes
  • Marek Rodák (Slovakia) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes

Aleksandar Mitrović‘s (£6.0m) preparation for the start of the Premier League season was satisfactory as he found the net in Serbia’s 3-1 defeat to Russia.

Elsewhere, Stefan Johansen (£5.0m) provided an assist as Norway ran out 5-1 winners against Northern Ireland.

LEEDS UNITED

  • Robin Koch (Germany) – 4 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Rodrigo Moreno (Spain) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Mateusz Klich (Poland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Stuart Dallas (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Kalvin Phillips (England) – Unused substitute | 76 minutes
  • Ezgjan Alioski (North Macedonia) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes

Rodrigo Moreno (£6.0m) missed two big chances to score against Germany but did manage to get the assist for Gayà’s last-minute equaliser.

Just as Stuart Dallas (£4.5m) did for Northern Ireland, Ezgjan Alioski (£4.5m) played 90 minutes in both matches of the international break at left-back. He even went one better, netting a penalty in North Macedonia’s 2-1 win over Armenia.

LIVERPOOL

  • Caoimhin Kelleher (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Harry Wilson (Wales) – 45 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Neco Williams (Wales) – 30 minutes | 25 minutes
  • Virgil van Dijk (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Georginio Wijnaldum (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Andrew Robertson (Scotland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Liam Cooper (Scotland) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Joe Gomez (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold (England) – 17 minutes | 87 minutes

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£7.5m) was eased back from injury during England’s two Nations League matches, with 17 and 87-minute outings against Iceland and Denmark respectively.

Neco Williams (£4.0m) reminded Jurgen Klopp he means business this season, emerging from the substitutes’ bench to score an all-important last-minute winner for Wales against Bulgaria.

LEICESTER CITY

  • Çaglar Söyüncü (Turkey) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Danny Ward (Wales) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Kasper Schmeichel (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Timothy Castagne (Belgium) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Youri Tielemans (Belgium) – 88 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Dennis Praet (Belgium) – 33 minutes | Unused substitute

MANCHESTER CITY

  • Ilkay Gündogan (Germany) – 74 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ferran Torres (Spain) – 90 minutes | 16 minutes
  • Rodri (Spain) – Unused substitute | 69 minutes
  • Oleksandr Zinchenko (Ukraine) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Nathan Aké (Netherlands) – 90 minutes | 81 minutes
  • Kyle Walker (England) – 70 minutes | Suspended
  • Phil Foden (England) – 68 minutes | Not involved
  • Raheem Sterling (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • João Cancelo (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Bernardo Silva (Portugal) – 78 minutes | 22 minutes
  • Kevin De Bruyne (Belgium) – Not involved | 80 minutes

Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) was the only Englishman on the score sheet over the international break. He netted a late penalty against Iceland, which he won himself by forcing a handball from Sverrir Ingason.

Manchester City’s new signing Ferran Torres (£7.0m) impressed in both outings for Spain, scoring in the second one, a 4-0 win over Ukraine.

João Cancelo (£5.5m) scored for Portugal against Croatia and Bernardo Silva (£7.5m) provided an assist. In the second of the two matches, a 2-0 win over Sweden, the midfielder was forced off with a muscle-related issue. While that could open up some spots in the Manchester City team, they don’t play their first game of the season until Gameweek 2.

Nathan Aké (£5.5m) also had his international game-time curtailed by a knock sustained 81 minutes into the Netherlands 1-0 defeat to Italy, perhaps of some slight concern, considering Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m) is isolating from a positive coronavirus test.

Elsewhere, Oleksandr Zinchenko (£5.5m), who plays in midfield for his country, netted the winner as Ukraine beat Switzerland 2-1. Ilkay Gündogan (£5.5m) was also on the scoresheet against the Swiss, as he struck the only goal of Germany’s 1-1 draw.

MANCHESTER UNITED

  • David de Gea (Spain) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Daniel James (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Donny van de Beek (Netherlands) – 16 minutes | 57 minutes
  • Scott McTominay (Scotland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes 
  • Mason Greenwood (England) – 12 minutes | Not involved
  • Dean Henderson (England) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • Bruno Fernandes (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Victor Lindelöf (Sweden) – 90 minutes | Not involved
  • Anthony Martial (France) – 13 minutes | 90 minutes

Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) played 90 minutes in both of Portugal’s Nations League games, and assisted in the win over Croatia.

Daniel James (£6.5m) was a provider in Wales 1-0 win against Finland and Anthony Martial (£9.0m) added an assist in France’s 4-2 defeat of Croatia.

Elsewhere, Scott McTominay (£5.0m) spent both of Scotland’s outings in the back-three alongside Tierney.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

  • Jeff Hendrick (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jamal Lewis (Northern Ireland) – 90 minutes | Not involved

SHEFFIELD UNITED

  • John Egan (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Enda Stevens (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ethan Ampadu (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Sander Berge (Norway) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Oliver Burke (Scotland) – 16 minutes | Unused substitute
  • John Fleck (Scotland) – Unused substitute | 71 minutes
  • David McGoldrick (Republic of Ireland) – Not involved | 24 minutes

With Billy Sharp (£6.0m) impressing in his absence during pre-season, David McGoldrick (£5.5m) finally made his first appearance of the summer, coming in the final 24 minutes of the Republic of Ireland’s 1-0 home defeat to Finland.

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Shane Long (Republic of Ireland) – 13 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jan Bednarek (Poland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Stuart Armstrong (Scotland) – 11 minutes | 80 minutes
  • James Ward-Prowse (England) – 90 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Danny Ings (England) – 22 minutes | Unused substitute
  • Jannik Vestergaard (Denmark) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute

Danny Ings (£8.5m) should be fresh for the start of the new season given his limited involvement with England.

The Southampton man was handed 22 minutes against Iceland before warming the bench all evening as the Three Lions drew 0-0 with Denmark.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

  • Matt Doherty (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Ben Davies (Wales) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Steven Bergwijn (Netherlands) – 74 minutes | 33 minutes
  • Eric Dier (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Harry Kane (England) – 78 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (Denmark) – 90 minutes | 17 minutes
  • Toby Alderweireld (Belgium) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Hugo Lloris (France) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Moussa Sissoko (France) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes 

Steven Bergwijn (£7.5m) was the only Spurs player to find the net in the most recent round of Nations League matches, scoring for the Netherlands in a 1-0 win over Poland.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION

  • Callum Robinson – 16 minutes | 31 minutes
  • Hal Robson-Kanu – Unused substitute | 29 minutes
  • Kamil Grosicki (Poland) – 19 minutes | 80 minutes

WEST HAM UNITED

  • Andriy Yarmolenko (Ukraine) – 90 minutes | 79 minutes
  • Darren Randolph (Republic of Ireland) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes
  • Lukasz Fabianski (Poland) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Declan Rice (England) – 90 minutes | 90 minutes

Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) was not involved for the Czech Republic at all over the international break while Andriy Yarmolenko (£6.0m) scored in a 2-1 win over Switzerland for Ukraine.

WOLVES

  • Conor Coady (England) – Unused substitute | 90 minutes
  • Leander Dendoncker (Belgium) – Unused substitute | Unused substitute
  • João Moutinho (Portugal) – 82 minutes | 73 minutes
  • Diogo Jota (Portugal) – 90 minutes | 9 minutes
  • Ruben Neves (Portugal) – 17 minutes
  • Rui Patrício (Portugal) – Not involved | Unused substitute

Most of Wolves’ squad were treated to a break from international duty over the last few days.

Diogo Jota (£6.5m) scored as Portugal ran out 4-1 winners over Croatia.

        16 year old. Not important yet.

          Cool, thanks

    3. ClassiX

      He's 16...quite cleary an investment, not a player (yet)

  2. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Best way to complete this team?

    A. 5.0+4.0 (Saiss+Mitchell perhaps)
    B. Two 4.5s (Vinagre, KWP, C.Taylor, Justin)

    Also start with Havertz or Alli?

    McCarthy
    TAA, Davies, Egan, XXX
    Salah, Auba, Havertz, ASM
    Werner, Ings
    (4.0, XXX, Bissouma, 4.5)

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Havertz and I've gone with A.

    2. QUEN
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Two 4.5. With covid think you want at least 2 solid bench options

  3. Bury94
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Bottomed

    McCarthy
    TAA, Robertson, Davies, Lewis
    Pulisic, Auba, Armstrong
    Werner, DCL, Ings

    Bench - Nyland, Johnson, Bissouma, Greenwood

    Obviously Greenwood comes on for GW2 and I've got 2.5 ITB to do Antonio to Martial. Pretty worried not having Salah but I think the way I've spread the funds makes it worth it. What do we think?

    1. Whazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Fully support it if you're happy with your captain options

      1. Bury94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Yeah, just realised I said Antonio to Martial, meant Ings!

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I don’t see Antonio? Is Pulisic fit? Armstrong also worries me

      1. Bury94
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        I meant Ings not Antonio my bad.

        Saw this before regarding Pulisic, seems legit. https://mobile.twitter.com/SiPhillipsSport/status/1303692798525308929

          How reliable is that source?

    3. My heart goes Salalalalah
      • 3 Years

      Greenwood sure starter Burry?

    4. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Not sure Greenwood is worth benching. Don't see him jumping immediately if only because everyone will be going Bruno or Martial. You can probably still get him at 7.5 week 3/4 given people will also be busy getting KdB in

      Yes the Palace fixture is good but he's the least of the United attack options given the XG 0 he feeds off.

    "A domestic-only window, during which Premier League clubs can only trade with those in the EFL, will run from 5 October to 17:00 BST on 16 October."

    Wow didn't realise this about the transfer window

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      News for me too. Could result in interesting transfers.

    2. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      thats between gw4 and gw5 in our language.
      a good time to wildcard potentially - new transfers and 2 weeks break.

  5. PogBruno
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Whats your best 2 MF combo would be for 14m that doesn't include Auba, Bruno and Harvetz

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Son Soucek

      1. PogBruno

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        This would be chelsea triple up in attack

        1. Whazza
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          There will be goals 😉

    3. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years

      Lallana and ASM

    4. Dr. Rog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      it would be impossible to have a combo for 14m with auba or bruno in it, rashy + bissouma

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Got it

      2. QUEN
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Curious Dr Rog, why rashford for you?

    5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Greenwood Foden

      1. PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Do you see them starting in GW2?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Greenwood yes, Foden 50/50 but haul potential when he is playing

    6. pingissimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Not seeing any particular value around the 6.0 - 5.5 mark. I'd be tempted just to go for the best premium mid you can get.

      But keeping an eye on Saka ad Keita as two possible real value deals if they get equivalent of 30 matches say. Neither will ever be wholly nailed I imagine

    7. MosF94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Alli + Matheus Pereira

  6. Berbs
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Pulisic starting GW1?

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      It looks like that he's available

    2. KGFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Don't think starting.
      Probably on bench but should make a cameo to prep for pool game.

      1. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        This

    3. QUEN
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Reliable source floating around earlier saying he was

  7. 2EyedTurk
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Any thoughts on this guys, thanks

    Martinez
    VVD TAA Mitchell Walker-Peters
    Salah Auba ASM
    Vardy DCL Adams

    Leno Bissouma Ayling Foden

    1. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Looks allright to me, perhaps the only thing that I'd change is Foden OUT (wait and see option for me) and get Werner instead of DCL.

  8. DIMITRIS
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 14 days ago

    Team is shaping up slowly. How do you like it, any suggestions?

    McCarthy (Nyland)
    TAA / Robbo / Justin (Ayling, Mitchell)
    Mane / Auba / ASM / Havertz (Bissouma)
    Mitro / Werner / Nketiah

    1. fantasyfog
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I don't like it, you'll be lucky to get 11 on the pitch nevermind backup

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Who do you reckon won't start?

        1. fantasyfog
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Nyland, nketiah, justin, mitchell

          1. fantasyfog
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            You do have 8 I really like though

          2. DIMITRIS
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            Nyland and Mitchell , I agree, but I don't know about Nketiah and Justin.
            Nketiah seems to be Arteta's favourite , and Lacazette looks like he's leaving the club.
            Justin is the obvious replacement for injured Pereira. On left back they signed Castagne from Atalanta, so I think it's Thomas who won't start.
            Cheers

              Has there been rumours Laca is leaving?

                There have been actually. Juventus, A.Madrid and Lyon are supposedly interested.

              Yeah I agree Justin will play and I like the Nketiah pick up, Arteta likes him also.

              Good team for me.

      Don’t like the Nketiah pick but rest looks good

        I look at Nketiah as a punt for the first two. He can easily be dropped for Adams or Wilson .

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I have Nketiah in atm too. You think he will start? I can bench him gw2 as i have Greenwood on bench gw1.

      1. DIMITRIS
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 14 days ago

        Well, he got the nod ahead od Laca in Community Shield, and played a lot more since Arteta arrived at Emirates.
        I'm tempted to risk with him, because first two fixtures are so good for Arsenal. If he plays, I can see him scoring more points than Adams ( an obvious replacement at that price ) in first two GW's.

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Same reasons i have him for. Apparently Laca was on a vacation but played against qpr in last friendly.

          1. DIMITRIS
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 14 days ago

            It would be a downer if Laca starts GW1 . I hope they sell him 🙂

      Not having either Salah or Mane, plus no MUFC on the bench can hurt you.

    I am quite impressed about AVL defensive stats post-break GW30-38.

    Much much better than Newcastle or BHA whom I considered as one of my 4.5 DEFs.

    Who is nailed there bar Mings and Cash? - both 5.0

    Targett?
    Konsa?
    Hause?

    1. onceuponatyne
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yeah, but Villa HAD to be killer to survive. NU were playing for nothing. Brighton were fighting too, but aren't that amazing.

      1. LewanGOALski
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        That’s a good point, true

    2. DIMITRIS
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      Better options at 5.0 for me are Egan, Saiss, Dier and Davies than Villa.

      I don't understand why they would want to sell Doherty and Vinagre (with Jonny injured long-term) in the first place. Something fishy going on

      Saliba and Vinagre sit perfectly in a team together.
      And they both are playable wk1 to cover a benched united player.

    Salah is a placeholder for Bruno. With the 1.5 can get Werner at later date and Havertz and Rodriguez can become Pulisic and Greenwood if they flop.

      you'll probably be playing with 9 men gw1, so just downgrade Salah now and spread the cash

    It's like final piece may be....
    A) Salah+ Doherty + Saiss + Lewis + 4.0
    B) Salah + Davies + Saiss +Lewis + Ward
    C) Bruno + TAA + Saiss +Lewis + 4.0

    In third case Bruno benched for 1st gw and 4 @ back will be

    So who is going to take the 'Covid" vaccine?

    1. Berbs
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 14 days ago

      I personally won't be. That being said, I'll abide by any local/national restriction in accordance to government and more importantly scientific advice.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 14 days ago

        With that logic you should be taking the vaccine as it is a 'cure' right?

        1. Berbs
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 14 days ago

          Well, I'm sure some scientists will be more transparent. Let's see.

            • 1 Year

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Of course - assuming that the trials are positve. Old gits like me are more at risk.

    5. VAR United

      No chance. With how they are rushing this through it’s probably less of a health risk to just the virus

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          It's very similar to mine. I have gone for Alli over Son and moved used the money to defence.

          1. Ali.h
              1 month, 14 days ago

              You are saying
              alli + a better D > Son + a weaker D?
              Mo kept criticising dele in preseason and he wont be that good.
              I also think son has the captaincy potential

              1. Northey

                • 6 Years

                I've gone for Alli and Davies. Trust your gut though as you seem set on Son and will kick yourself if he does well.

                  Hmmm 1 or maybe 2 at best

                  Johnson got subbed off last friendly before half time for being poor

                  Mitchell, yeah should play providing Ferguson is still out, but VA back in training

                  Douglas, isn’t it that he only plays if Dallas doesn’t play in that position?

                  1. Ali.h
                      1 month, 14 days ago

                      I don't need all 3 playing.
                      Johnson played in last part of last season. So it's not very surprising if he plays.
                      One poor pre-season game isn't a good evidence

                The case is building to wait and see on chelsea assets to WCGW3 and pick who looks to be the best one. I have been right this whole time and everything is just proving me more and more right as the time passes.

                  1 month, 14 days ago

                  Pulisic the one for me - like a little George Best he was last season - I’ll take that for 8.5 & run

                  1. Ask Yourself

                    Initially I agree pulisic looks best to start. WC team is shaping up like I’ll triple up on 2 of the mids and chilwell (or Telles if he comes). This is one of the most exciting starts to the season we’ve seen for a while.

                  WC over a minus 4?

                  Amazing fixture turn for both City and Liverpool almost simultaneously in 9/10. COVID will be rampant then too 🙁

                    If we had he patience to wait to GW10 here’d be so much extra info too (in addition to that City fixture swing)

                    Transfer window shut, both international breaks over, first 4 champs Lge fixtures done... teams starting to settle...

                    Hoping to tough it out to GW10

                      1 month, 14 days ago

                      Everything points to it

                      I expect I’ll manage to reduce my hit count somewhat once more but equally I also expect and am indeed planning regular hits. Makes GW10 more plausible in my case

                        Yeah, I expect a few hits will be inevitable for the opening fixtures. Esp with 1 transfer already planned

                      Yep, it's going to be tough but the GW10 WC idea has huge benefits. Difficult to understate just how massive the fixture swing is then

                    Definitely for me. So much advantage to be had I’ve you lot in 1 and 2 and then 3-10

                      Not actually seeing that much advantage to 3 at all. Too early for form to be established, the window is open, internationals to come and no especially notable fixture turns to take account of.

                Most exciting/unpredictable/difficult pre-season ever. Bring it on.

              A lot planning on ditching Salah for Bruno including myself.

              Will you re-assess if Salah were to get a haul?

                Yep, currently have him Captain GW1 too so obviously want him to haul, but would then be a real dilemma

                  Totally

                Will probably do Salah > Bruno/KDB in GW2 regardless because I’m doing an early WC and don’t want to lose too much value on the 2 best players in the game

                  Yeah probably do something similar myself

                It's not like they're the same price. The move frees up a vital 1.5 to be used elsewhere.

                If there were no BGW I wouldn't be on Salah to begin with.

              with Davies / Saliba / Vinager you can navigate awkward fixtures very well and play 2 of them every week against good teams

              wk1: EVE ful shu - all 3 play to cover a blank utd player
              wk2: sou whm - bench vinager (MCI)
              wk3: NEW wha - bench saliba (LIV)
              wk4: SHU FUL - bench davies (mun)

                Looks good, but there’s a good chance one if not both will not play

              Alphonse Areola to Fulham almost done. Rodak owners look elsewhere

                Would they not, like ummm, just get areola instead ?

              Doherty & Alli or Davies & Son?
