The Scout Squad picks for FPL Gameweek 2

This weekly precursor to the Scout Picks sees our panel put forward a long-list of the standout Fantasy Premier League assets for Gameweek 2.

Fantasy Football Scout community manager Geoff, deputy editor Neale, video content manager Andy and Pro Pundit Tom will each propose an 18-man squad of players for the approaching Gameweek and explain their notable inclusions/omissions below.

The 72 nominations listed will then be narrowed down to a squad of 15 (with the starting XI not exceeding a total cost of £83m) for the weekly Scout Picks selection ahead of Saturday’s deadline at 11:00 BST.

There are requirements for at least one goalkeeper costing £5.0m or less, at least one sub-£5.0m defender, at least one midfielder listed at £6.5m or below and at least one forward priced at £7.5m or lower.

Each panelist is restricted to no more than three players from the same team, as is the case in FPL.

We will again be adding a captaincy to the Scout Picks, with details of that revealed on Friday.

Most popular picks: Lucas Digne, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (four), Kasper Schmeichel, Illan Meslier, Luke Ayling, James Justin, James Rodriguez, Richarlison, Ollie Watkins, Callum Wilson, Jamie Vardy, Anthony Martial (three)

GEOFF SAID…

While Jordan Pickford’s price tag is half a million more than Illan Meslier, I trust Carlo Ancelotti’s new-look Everton to keep a Gameweek 2 clean sheet more and hand Pickford the gloves. Kasper Schmeichel looks set for another shut-out at home to a shot-shy West Brom but is expensive at £5.5m.

In defence, I again look to Everton with Lucas Digne, who has significant attacking threat as well as clean sheet potential. I expect Luke Shaw to start and his additional threat down the left flank should add much to the Manchester United attack. Matt Targett, James Justin and Luke Ayling are picked mostly for their clean sheet potential and their excellent value, to allow more money to be spent further up the pitch.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has penalties, a strong fixture, some form, and is possibly the stand-out captain this Gameweek; however, I see Marcus Rashford challenging him for the captaincy, in United’s first game of the season at home to Crystal Palace.

The perhaps surprise omission is Mohamed Salah, after his Gameweek 1 heroics – instead, I’ve opted for Raheem Sterling.

James Rodriguez is my third Everton player, after an impressive Everton performance and a good degree of attacking involvement, while Leandro Trossard looks an interesting prospect at only £6.0m, away to Newcastle.

In attack, Anthony Martial looks capable of a big score; even if he fails to hit double digits, I expect returns of some kind.

Jamie Vardy started the season in style and has every chance of continuing that run, while Harry Kane, at half a million more, needs to lead his Tottenham teammates to victory after an uninspired performance at home to Everton.

Callum Wilson and Newcastle looked to be finding some rhythm at West Ham, and I expect him to score against Brighton, while Patrick Bamford, just off finding the net against Liverpool, should be allowed even more space against Fulham.

NEALE SAID…

We have a full complement of fixtures to choose from this weekend, following an eight-game Blank Gameweek 1.

Manchester City get their Premier League campaign underway but I’m holding fire on their assets for now, what with last season’s bogey team and a defensively resolute Wolverhampton Wanderers providing the opposition on Monday night.

I’m willing to back their cross-city rivals from the off, however, with Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw – who both featured in last Saturday’s friendly with Aston Villa to provide reassurances over their fitness – getting the nod.

Shaw’s included as much for budgetary reasons given my lavish spending elsewhere, while Rashford played a part in both United goals when the two sides met as recently as July.

The Season Ticker might scream ‘difficult fixture’ for Liverpool and Chelsea but, as we saw in Gameweek 37+ of last season, there could still be plenty of joy for the attacking assets of each club when they meet again at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

The high line that Liverpool employed in their 4-3 win over Leeds United looks tailor-made for the rapid Timo Werner to exploit, while Chelsea continue to appear shaky when defending set plays, so Trent Alexander-Arnold remains in my thoughts – even if Andrew Robertson is now sharing the dead-ball duties.

A dangerously high line is also something an under-par Southampton have tried out in their first two games in league and cup, so I’m willing to give Son Heung-min another shot, as the Korean is capable of being destructive when Spurs transition quickly and by-pass the midfield by utilising their ball-playing centre-halves.

The Everton triple-up requires little explanation given how anaemic West Brom were on their Premier League return, with the chances they afforded left-winger Harvey Barnes further influencing my decision to make Richarlison my top forward selection.

The two other promoted clubs, Leeds and Fulham, meet at Elland Road and the Whites looked by some distance the pick of the two on the opening weekend.

Jack Harrison really caught my eye from the left flank at Anfield, while it’s almost a coin toss between Stuart Dallas and Luke Ayling for which Leeds full-back I plump for until I’ve seen more of them in action – the versatile Dallas boasted the better underlying stats last season but of course spent some of his time further up the pitch.

Newcastle and Brighton didn’t manage a single goal between them in their two meetings last season, so there is every a chance of a clean sheet or two on Tyneside this Sunday.

Callum Wilson has proven to be a streaky player in the past, however, and the fact that he and Andy Carroll managed eight shots between them in Gameweek 1 does suggest that the Magpies might have more joy than their Joelinton-led attack in 2019/20.

TOM SAID…

A clean sheet looks like a shoo-in for Manchester United this week, with opponents Crystal Palace failing to find the back of the net in any of their last four road trips. With Aaron Wan-Bissaka only returning to training on Monday, I’ve opted for the security of Harry Maguire, who at least featured in last weekend’s friendly at Aston Villa.

Leicester City and Leeds United’s home fixtures also stand out defensively, which is why I’ve put forward Kasper Schmeichel, James Justin, Illan Meslier and Luke Ayling.

Against West Bromwich Albion, Justin struggled in the first half but improved as the game went on, and showed plenty of adventure on the ball winning the second penalty, while Leeds’s defence isn’t being talked about enough. You have to go back to the 2015/16 Championship season to find a promoted team who came up with a better defensive record, and that includes Sheffield United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

I’ve also included Hector Bellerín, who is an intriguing pick. Arsenal’s average position map against Fulham in Gameweek 1 showed that Bellerín was essentially playing as a right-winger, with Willian performing more of a central role. It resulted in Bellerín having the highest number of final third touches and crosses in the game, which is something to keep an eye on moving forward. He also comes in cheaper than teammate Kieran Tierney, whose appeal is dented due to not knowing if he’ll start as a left-sided centre-back or wing-back. 

They’re joined by Aston Villa’s new keeper Emiliano Martínez and Lucas Digne (more on him later) at the back.

Further forward, the inclusion of heavy-hitters Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bruno Fernandes, Kevin De Bruyne, Anthony Martial and Jamie Vardy largely speak for themselves, so I’ll dedicate a bit more time to some of my other selections.

Against Tottenham Hotspur, Everton fully deserved their win and looked sharp. James Rodríguez was a class above, tucking in from the right-wing, which enabled him to regularly move the ball onto his stronger left foot and pick out Richarlison and Digne with those long right-to-left passes. Both will benefit from his brilliance, which is a key reason behind my Toffees selections.

I’ve also included Patrick Bamford. While sometimes wasteful, I’m confident he’ll get chances against Fulham, and following his performance at Anfield, should have earned another start.

The offensive list is completed by Ryan Fraser and Ollie Watkins.

ANDY SAID…

Despite conceding four goals in their opening game, I’m still backing Leeds United for a clean sheet this week, which is why both Illan Meslier and Luke Ayling are in my picks.

Looking at the expected goals conceded without penalties it was 0.9 for Leeds, the same as Everton against Tottenham Hotspur and Wolves against Sheffield United. You can’t just discount penalties, of course, but after a tough test in the opening Gameweek, I’m expecting them to bounce back against Fulham.

I was impressed with Everton’s opening Gameweek and with a home game against West Brom, I’ve gone with the triple-up. It was promising to see Lucas Digne retain some set pieces, even with James Rodríguez in the side. It was a free-kick that ultimately saw him get an assist. I’d hope that without a marauding full-back like Matt Doherty to play against, he may get more licence to go forward.

In attack, it also looks like there could be big points potential with Rodríguez already creating five chances for his teammates. Despite not getting a goal it was Richarlison that really impressed me in attack with seven shots, and five of them in the box. If anyone is ready to explode soon, it’s him.

Ollie Wakins was a signing that Aston Villa fans were extremely excited about and rightly so after being just one goal behind Aleksandar Mitrović in the Championship last season. He’s already off the mark in pre-season, and the biggest draw for me is the fact he has Jack Grealish behind him creating chances. I don’t think Sheffield United will be as tight at the back without Dean Henderson and this could be a perfect opportunity to get a debut Premier League goal.

There’s probably no better time to use the eye test than in the opening Gameweeks. Underlying statistics are still great, but we’re working off small sample sizes. One thing I want to see is how sharp a player looks. We saw it with Mohamed Salah against Leeds, and we saw it with Callum Wilson against West Ham. It will be a tougher test against Brighton, but with a debut goal in Gameweek 1, why not top it off with a debut goal at St James’ Park too.

As we get closer to Gameweek 2, I’m wavering on my viewpoint that without as many penalties, Bruno Fernandes *might* not be worth £10.5m – at least not as a season-keeper as he was last year when he arrived at Old Trafford. We saw how devastating it can be with Jamie Vardy and Salah in Gameweek 1, and with 14 and 12 penalties over the last two seasons, targeting the Manchester United penalty-taker probably isn’t a bad tactic.

    Should I start Steer or McCarthy ?

    Steer in the off chance?

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nah. I'm just gonna keep McCarthy. Steer would be so annoying if Martinez gets injured and he comes on for half a game.

      1. Forza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Won't the odds of McCarthy missing half of his game through injury be very similar though?

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          That is true... Maybe you're right. If there's even a small chance that Steer starts, he's probably worth playing more than McCarthy.

    2. Wild Card this...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Just go for it man, you have nothing to lose.

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

      I'm starting Steer - anything to do with a red card or injury to the Villa keepers is probably less likely than a red card or injury to the Southampton keepers, given Southampton's tougher fixture.

                    cant fault the plan

    2. dansmusen

      What if is the question every week

    3. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      You can ask this to wildcarders every week. No Saints for me now while Pulisic/Havertz are easy to get in for Auba in GW3 considering KdB and Bruno are already in.

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        After 3-4 GWs many things will be cleared which are still unknown. So it's not the same

        1. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Fair. Though I don't think Saints are a team that people will be panicking to bring in. Even if it comes to that, they're quite cheap. Same goes for Chelsea bar Werner and even with him, most WCers will have at least one of Jimmy and Martial who can be swapped for the German. Though I do think Jimmy will do better than Werner until GW10.

          1. Lindelol
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            True but I was just giving an example. Personally I am holding it at least until transfer window closes

    4. Bobby Reds
      • 10 Years

      You can have em'

  3. Pedram
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Which attack line do you think will score more this week?

    DCL - Wilson - Bamford

    Martial - Bamford - 4.5

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

      Martial + 2 vs DCL and Wilson, the latter

    2. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Which mid (or def) will you play instead of the 4.5 in the second one? On their own I would say the first one as there is no playing 4.5 attacker, is there?

      1. Pedram
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Salah - Auba - Bruno - KDB

        1. Invincibles
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Locked for the season (rest of team bench fodder).

    3. Flaming Flamingo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Odds are the first one

  4. southernrocker1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Bruno or Rashford? Budget no problem

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      See them play first. Wait one more week.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Bruno. I do think he's worth the extra for the PKs.

    3. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Bruno if money no issue. Wait for rashford to hit form - been terrible for months.

    4. GloryManUnited
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Both

  5. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Mahrez or Rashford in draft?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rash

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rashford definitely.

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rashford nailed

    4. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Rash IMO

  6. Chandler Bing
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Ayling the best offensive fullback at 4.5?

    1. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Justin in with a shout in the short term, but not nailed in the long term. Jamal Lewis from Newcastle maybe worth a look as well. Ayling certainly an option.

    2. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Id say so

    3. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      looks like it.

  7. TheDragon
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    How’s this looking for GW2? Do you see a green arrow in my future?

    McCarthy
    TAA, BDavies, Justin
    Auba, Salah, Son, ASM, Bissouma
    Werner, Martial
    4.0 l KWP, Mitchell, Davies

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I see green dragon

    2. seaside
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      looks solid

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It’s just the sad state of having to play Bissouma or KWP which gets me down

        I’m pretty certain Werner will start

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I’d play KWP over Bissouma

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It just makes the Spurs saints game so uncomfortable though with McCarthy and KWP vs Davies and Son

    4. Shineonme
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nice team just don't like Asm but what else is out there for 5.5.?

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I’m hoping Foden nails down a spot this season

        If so I’ll eventually gradually move Auba, Son, BDavies, ASM -> KDB, Pulisic, 4.5 defender & Foden

    5. Saint Channon
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      How about Doucouré instead of ASM. Looked good at the weekend.

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        It’s def an option when I’ve got an FT spare - I do like Doucouré

  8. seaside
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    reshuffled my WC a bit. Tried to remove some value from the bench and GKs...

    Martinez McCarthy
    Digne Saiss Holding Justin Mitchell
    KDB Bruno Hamez Barnes Biss
    Martial Jimenez Wilson

    2m ITB. this money will probably go into somehow squeezing in Salah/Mane or upgrading a defender to TAA/Robbo.

    good to go?

    1. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Wanted to say no pool but then saw your plan and all the money itb. Good job I must say.

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I don’t like it

      No TAA
      Chelsea needed from GW3

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      x2 4.5m keepers? That's unusual. I'd just stick with one.

      Holding is pretty useless as a pick. He'll likely get dropped once Luiz is back and he's about to run into the fixtures from hell. Go Ayling instead.

      No Salah? I'd take Salah right now on current form over KdB or Bruno. Barnes can be downgraded to fund.

    4. ivantys
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Just up Digne to TAA

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

      I like it but would pick just one 4.5 - those two don't rotate that well IIRC

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

        4.5 GK

  9. THFC4LIFE
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    With Bale and Reguilon poised to sign for Spurs, I’m hoping a shift to a 343 formation will improve the prospects of Doherty and Son as FPL options, not to mention the main man Bale himself!

    Exciting times as a Spurs fan. COYS

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I might invest in Spurs players if they go 541 / 343. Exciting times!

    2. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I pray they go 3-4-3 with Davies in the back 3, Doherty in the midfield 4 and a Kane, Son, Bale front 3

      I can dream

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That’s the dream!

        Lloris
        Toby Dier Davies
        Doherty Hojbjerg Lo Celso Reguilon
        Bale Kane Son

        1. TheDragon
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Do you think that’s likely?

          I’ve got BDavies in my team and I could do with him starting for the next few weeks until I can get rid.

          I’m worried Reguilon will replace him

            It’s all guess work at the minute mate, have to wait and see. I’ve got Davies myself not worried yet

    3. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Do you think Dele is done? No point in holding him in our teams?

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Doubtful Bale/Reguilon will play this weekend so I would hold on Alli, or at least wait for the presser/comments from Mourinho

        1. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Cheers mate

          1. THFC4LIFE
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            No worries

      2. Pumpy Pro
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        A good performance from Lo Celso later could answer that question

    4. Dr Van Nostrand
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Exciting times and Jose Mourinho don't go together anymore

    5. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Agreed. Just need to get rid of Jose

      1. Dr Van Nostrand
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        His typical club expiry date is another year away but these are unusual times

        1. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I'd rather have Christian Gross back

    6. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Unlikely you'll switch to the 3-4-3, Jose has only ever used a 4ATB in his main formation.

  10. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Worth losing Werner if it means having:

    Salah
    Aubameyang
    Bruno
    Martial
    DCL
    Wilson

    ??

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I don’t think so - you’ll want Werner from GW3

      I think he will be highest scoring FPL striker this season

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Werner over Martial then, would you suggest?

    2. iL PiStOlErO
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Actually no. No need for double utd yet. Rather have Bruno+Werner

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Yep, I think I would but started with Martial benched in GW1 so will be doubling up this weekend.

        Need a lot of luck but if Werner blanks vs Liverpool, I may be able to pick him up a little cheaper.

    3. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yeah, I'd argue TAA is a must have too.

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        TAA comes in when Salah goes.

    4. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      WC team?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Current team.

        1. THFC4LIFE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Probably go with Werner over Martial imo

    5. ivantys
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Werner over Martial, I don't like both 12.0s since you can only captain one

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I wouldn’t want to captain KdB away from home at this stage so need an alternative. Maybe Bruno will be sufficient.

        Going with Salah, KdB (next week) and Bruno until I bring in Liverpool defenders later.

    6. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Cheers all, appreciate your views.

    7. Pumpy Pro
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I toyed with it but gw 3 and 4 Werner is a better option. Decided against it.

  11. Atimis
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Recon Brewster may be ready to start for Sheffield in GW3?

  12. Lalrota
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Who are Wolves going to sign at RWB.
    Thinking of getting Marcal but feel he is not very attacking.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Good spot. I think he’s the more cautious of the wingbacks to allow Traore to attack on the other side.

      Saiss for me.

    2. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nobodinho

    3. ivantys
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I think Buur might start eventually if they didn't sign anyone. It's a waste of Traore's talent to play him there.

  13. Klopp it

    1. Invincibles

      Good but I think theres better value in downgrading Robbo and upgrading Rich/Adams to ings/Jimi

      1. StayoutheSpiceZone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Thanks mate. However I’m sticking with TAA and Robbo for the season I think

  18. FOO FIGHTER

    Sterling or Auba?

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

      Depends on how in the mood Raheem looks against Wolves

    2. Flaming Flamingo
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      This week Auba, otherwise I prefer Sterling

  19. Hazz

    Just realised the mods deleted my clearly very tongue-in-cheek comment RE: An Ainsley Harriot Twitter account 'confirming' a Brewster transfer.

    If we can even poke a bit of fun here and there, what's the point?

      The mods obviously prefer green peppers to red tomatoes

  20. Respect My Authoritah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    An odd one, but which would you prefer out of the following?

    A) Salah + Wilson
    B) Rashford + Richarlison

    Guessing most will say A?

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

      B

    2. Henrik Larsson
      1 month, 5 days ago

      With current incoming fixtures I'd say B actually.

    3. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      B but obviously A could explode

    4. Invincibles
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      A by far for me. Rash and Rich both frustrating assets.

    Didn't Mourinho once sub Dier after 30 mins? And now he starts. Relax with the Alli being dropped forever talk

    If you missed Mourinho's quotes he even seemed to admit he made the wrong sub taking Alli off

  28. Camzy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I think Son is going to punish sellers starting immediately this week.

    Son was one of the players I was pretty disappointed to not have found a place for in my team. He's a proven world class forward for a top 6 side with a superb PPG history being clearly underpriced at 9.0m imo.

    One poor performance from Spurs does not mean the team is a lost cause. Now they're signing more guys, the mood will increase again if they win well against Plovdiv tonight.

    Their fixtures are also really kind. I don't think I could have handpicked a better team to be playing this week than Southampton who fielded their whole first team and still went down to Brentford's second team after another poor loss against CPL. Hassenhuttl even says his team are not match fit, and this ain't gonna help.

    1. TheDragon
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      This is what I’m banking on

      If he puts in a performance I’ll probably captain GW3

      I think it’s ridiculous how many are selling him

    2. Zenith UK
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I ruined the start of my season by planning so heavily at the start. I've done Auba & Son > KDB & Bruno. Need Doherty to really show up this week as well. If Bale does sign, will be hard not to bring him in, I rate him so highly.

      1. TheDragon
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        How has planning ruined your start?

        Those transfers are absolutely MAD this week

        I can see Auba & Son scoring 15+ points more than KDB & Bruno this week

      2. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I think those transfers are daft. You planned heavily for a reason. Stick with them.

        Now what happens if United are really poor and draw 0-0 with CPL which is entirely possible considering they've had basically no preseason?

        You're gonna switch back to Son who will likely get something vs Southampton?

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

          I only have Doherty as my Spurs asset. Is that enough would you say? Curious on your opinion about my team as I plan to roll over FT to GW3.

          McCarthy
          TAA // Doherty // Justin
          Salah // Auba // Havertz // ASM // Soucek
          Werner // Ings

          0ITB.

          Thanks

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

            • 10 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            You don't need more Spurs. You need Son. There's a difference haha.

            That team is fine. I think rolling is good.

            1. JURGENAUT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Aha, makes sense. Thanks

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

        Those are absolutely horrendous transfers, as is the idea of bringing Bale in first week.

    3. COK3Y5MURF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He's 6 feet tall as well

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Does score occasional headers!

    4. ivantys
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Really hope Son's price wouldn't drop, but oh well it will rise back once he gets back those points.

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

        I think it will, but yeah will go back up.

    5. Tempestic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Agreed and I'm kicking myself that I have Alli instead

    6. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Really want Son but can't find the extra .5 to upgrade Puli. Southampton are dreadful and then Newcastle, I expect a major haul this week.

  29. Zenith UK

    Bale price if/when confirmed? What we thinking? Who's bringing him in?

    1. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I’d guess 10.5/11m

      1. Zenith UK
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Rate him so much, and I'm a WH fan! LOL! Definitely one to watch/think about bringing in immediately.

    2. Dr Van Nostrand
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Atleast 9.5 based on his ancient PL history. Too rich for a Mourinho attacker I reckon
