Scout Notes

Budget FPL assets shine for Leeds and Fulham but Bielsa highlights lack of creativity

Leeds United 4-3 Fulham

  • Goals: Helder Costa (£5.5m) x2, Mateusz Klich (£5.5m), Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) | Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m) x2, Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m)
  • Assists: Bamford x2, Klich | Joe Bryan (£5.0m), Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m), Kenny Tete (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Mitrovic x3, Bamford x2, Costa x2

Patrick Bamford (£5.6m) rewarded his growing Fantasy following with a double-digit haul in Leeds United’s second seven-goal thriller of the week.

The forward’s goal in Gameweek 1’s 4-3 loss to Liverpool prompted nearly 365,000 managers to buy him in for the Fulham game.

Seasoned Fantasy Premier League (FPL) bosses, and many a Leeds fan, would have considered the move optimistic at best as Bamford has plenty of previous for missing his fair share of chances.

But the striker struck again on Saturday, finishing with aplomb when released by a Mateusz Klich (£5.5m) pass early in the second half of the win over Fulham.

His boss, Marcelo Bielsa, was quick to play down the side’s eye-catching start to the season:

This won’t be a constant all year. It is very difficult to maintain the efficiency we have had in these first two games. The characteristics of our game is to create goalscoring opportunities. In these two games we have created very little, but we have scored all our chances.

He might as well have been talking about Bamford, who has now scored from two of the three chances he has been presented with this season.

That has tempted another raft of managers to back the striker. He’s currently in the top three transfers-in for a Gameweek 3 trip to Sheffield United and a Yorkshire derby that should be, to use a technical term, proper tasty.

Whether his fine form is sustainable is highly debatable.

FPL has indulged plenty of fine early starters who failed to deliver consistently over a season – Norwich’s Teemu Pukki is the most recent example of that, while Manchester United striker Anthony Martial (£9.0m) is another who hit the Premier League ground running before being reduced to a stagger within a few weeks.

As we detailed in pre-season here, Bamford has never been the most clinical of strikers, missing 34 (77.3%) of the big chances he had in the Championship last season.

For now, however, it would be churlish not to bask in his point-scoring glory. He also had two assists against Fulham, earning a penalty when he was pushed in the back by Joe Bryan (£5.0m) and then setting up Helder Costa (£5.5m) on the break to make the scoreline 4-1 with barely ten minutes of the second half played.

Add on two bonus and the forward ended with 14 points on the day –  a total he shared with Costa as the midfielder opened the scoring when he picked up a loose ball from a corner and smashed it in off the bar with five minutes on the clock.

Costa also earned two bonus points and has now hauled in both matches for his 1.6% ownership.

But spare a thought for the 4.6% with Klich in their squads. He also scored in Gameweek 1 and was on the score sheet against the Cottagers when he rolled home the penalty Bamford had earned.

Such was the madness of the match, a goal and an assist were not enough to bring in any extra points for the Poland international. In fact, the maximum bonus award didn’t even go to a Leeds player at all.

That honour was reserved for visiting striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.0m), who marked his first start of the season with two goals and 12 points.

The Serbia international was a very popular pick heading into the season and the 20%-owned forward was quick to reward his followers when he blasted in a first-half penalty, awarded when Robin Koch (£4.5m) mistimed a slide tackle on Bryan.

He then headed in from a fine Kenny Tete (£4.5m) cross to make it 4-3 with just over 20 minutes left to play.

Fulham’s other goal was a sweet one, with the impressive Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (£4.5m) playing a beautifully-weighted pass through to Bobby Decordova-Reid (£5.5m), who shot across Leeds keeper Illan Meslier (£4.5m) and into the far corner.

Both Meslier and his Fulham counterpart Alphonse Areola (£4.5m) were, unsurprisingly, busy boys on the day and the pair picked up a save point apiece for their efforts.

Two players who were rather less involved were Leeds playmaker Pablo Hernandez (£6.0m), who suffered a groin strain in the warm-up, and the club’s record signing, Rodrigo (£6.0m), who replaced him in the starting line-up.

The striker was peripheral at best playing as a number ten behind Bamford and he was hooked at half-time, although that was more an indication of his lack of match fitness as Bielsa, who has very high standards in that regard, was quick to point out post-match:

I was under the impression that he lacked a bit of energy to show his qualities. I think that has something to do with the physical effort he used against Hull (in the EFL Cup). That’s why I decided to sub him.

The coach also gave an update on Hernandez:

Pablo had a small knock in the warm-up. We don’t think it’s very serious.

Fulham boss Scott Parker had understandably mixed emotions about an away game in which his team had 55% of the possession and scored three goals, but still lost:

We showed some real quality in possession at times. We showed a real impetus and caused Leeds a lot of problems. On the flip side we gave away easy goals today and left ourselves a mountain to climb.

He also made it clear that he will chop and change his side this season:

The players who did not play today are vital and will play a vital part this year. As I showed last year I will make changes for matches that give us the best chance of winning.

Not that Fulham rotation will be a major concern for most Fantasy managers, with Mitrovic by far and away the most likely to be drafted in for a good schedule from now until late November.

As for Leeds, they currently have the dubious honour of being an even worse defensive unit than Fulham, having conceded seven goals to the Cottagers’ six.

But in Bamford, Costa and Klich, they have three in-form and very nicely priced assets who will surely find their way into many FPL teams over the next few weeks.

The Leeds rush might have to wait, however – after that derby in Sheffield, Bielsa’s men will host Manchester City in Gameweek 4.


Leeds United XI (4-4-2): Meslier; Dallas, Cooper, Koch, Ayling; Phillips, Harrison, Klich, Costa; Bamford (Alioski 70), Rodrigo (Roberts 45).

Fulham XI (4-2-3-1): Areola; Bryan, Hector, Odoi, Tete; Reed (Lemina 70′), Zambo Anguissa; Kamara (Kebano 58′), Onomah (Decordova-Reid 58′), Cavaleiro; Mitrović.

    McCarthy (Meslier)
    Digne James Saiss (Lamptey, Mitchell)
    Sterling Salah Podence Hamez Rashford
    Martial DCL (Brewster)
    -
    0 FT, already did Auba to Salah
    is Rashford -> Son or Martial -> Jimenez worth -4?

    1. The Mane-lorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      hold

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yep I think so

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

      Your keepers scare me

      Faith in Man U can be repaid the same way Spurs repaid their faith

      Mitigating circumstances for the loss. Talent is still there. This was essentially a preseason game against a team who's played more preseason games

      I'm more worried about your keepers and Podence
      impending rotation

      Team's good enough to go without a hit, I think

  2. The Mane-lorian
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Auba, Adams to Sterling, Jimenez worth -4?

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Definitely

    2. RichRover
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes, but I'd wait until City play

      1. Paul Psychic Octopus
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        He may have only the exact money and Adams due to fall in price tonight.

        1. RichRover
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          In that case, i would go for it

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

      That's exactly what my transfers are

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

      I'd just do the Auba to Sterling but Jimenez upside something to think about.

  3. Carrick Doesn't Deserv…
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    where has been more accurate for price changes so far this season fpl statistics or ff fix?

    1. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Neither particularly but probably fpl stats.

    2. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Difficult as so many Wildcards being activated. I believe it skews the results.

  4. johnthepg
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    WC this lot?

    McCarthy Steer
    Saiss TAA Dier Taylor Fergie
    Bruno, Auba, Hames, Saint Max, Bissouma
    Che Adams, Werner and DCL

    Plan was to take -4 Auba + Che to Razza + Jesus/Jimenez but defence looks an issue + Bissouma RC & Saint Max Injury.

    Any advice appreciated

    1. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Defence looks OK. You might want to catch the Son price rises: Bruno > Son. Does that leave you enough itb to do Adams > Jimi?

    2. Tingate
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I wouldn't WC.

      Next week I would play

      McCarthy
      Saiss - TAA - Dier - Taylor
      Bruno - Raheem - Hamez
      Jesus/Jimi - Werner - DCL

      Then reassess after that.

  5. RoyaleBlue
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Any chance Steer starts tomorrow? Or Martinez right in you think?

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

      surely has to be Martinez

    2. Covid Martial
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Will surely be nyland if not Martinez.

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

      Martinez. Steer and Nyland were never going to start when was clear Martinez was a done deal well before official

    4. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      martinez played and won in the fa cup final, and the charity shield, he's already match fit

  6. Agger
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Doesn’t surprise me the template team is in flames already

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Indeed

  7. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    A) Auba+ASM -> KDB + Podence
    B) Auba+ASM+Davies -> KDB + Zaha + Dunne -4

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

      A

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

    Havertz to Son for -4?

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

      Probably.

      However Hav has West Brom next

      That being said it may be worth the potential 0.3 price swing

    2. HODGE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes

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

      Not this week

    4. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Nope. Swallow the price swing

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

      Cheers everyone

    6. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I would. Havertz clearly is taking time to settle and Lampard hasn't decided what role he should play.

  9. Covid Martial
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Martinez
    Lamptey saiss Castagne James
    Salah de bruyne Rodriguez Son
    Werner Wood bamford.

    That's my wildcard. If you don't like it, I have others.

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

      TAA > Rodriguez

      1. Covid Martial
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I don't wanna get rid of any of my defenders though. Saiss maybe I guess.

      2. RoyaleBlue
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That's a false choice as it's not just TAA vs Hames. It's Saiss + Hames vs. TAA + a 5.0 mid. So you should be considering the combined points of those combos, and not just TAA pts vs. Hames pts.

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

          Nobody said he had to sell Saiss.. He could sell Castagne and get Podence for instance.. Also depends on his bench etc..

          1. Covid Martial
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            I ain't selling Castagne. He's been my best player so far. Podence a good shout though. Considered him.

        2. Covid Martial
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Yes good point.

  10. thegaffer82
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I’ve got ASM, Ferguson, Vinagre & Bissouma probably all not playing next match.
    I’ve got Davies & Justin at risk in the coming weeks.
    Then there’s Auba > KDB/Sterling I want to do. McCarthy not looking good. Martial may have been a premature buy. Werner looking good, but the points aren’t coming....

    Really don’t see how I can’t WC at the moment...

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

      Ideally if u can wait a few more weeks till the window closes that would probably be better but if ur team is in dire need then go with what u think ur team needs.

      but if u can sort ur team with a hit or 2 then save the wc

    2. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I have all those except Villa fodder Davis instead of Vinagre. Im just gonna get rid of ASM no hits.

  11. Vazza
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Is Saiss likely to increase in price tonight?

    1. Vazza
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Anyone?

    2. Tingate
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I would say no. FPL Statistics already came out and said the algorithms will be overly enthusiastic predictions and Saiss is only 96.4 so I reckon he wont.

    3. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Obviously not the night before a game with Man City...

  12. Kasper the ghost keeper
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    KDB or Sterling?

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

      Sterling for me

    2. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Did auba to kdb already. Who knows

    3. Kasper the ghost keeper
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Move must be made before seeing them play tomorrow due to other price changes

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

        just saw this

        Kdb - higher ownership and on pens and more consistent

        Sterling - more explosive but can be anonymous if not in form.

        If I had to pick without watching the game I would always go KDB

        1. Kasper the ghost keeper
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Cheers, I'm thinking he's the safer pick

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

      Sterling imo
      Tends to do much better with Jesus starting, and more explosive as a captaincy option.

    5. Vazza
      1 month, 5 days ago

      IM getting both

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

      watch the game tomorrow and decide

      1. Kasper the ghost keeper
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Need to decide now as I also want Zaha who might rise tonight

  13. mixology
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Who would you prioritize transferring out?

    A) Havertz
    B) Pulisic

    Ideally I’d like Puli as a season keeper, not sure Lampard will even be giving much info away at the next presser regarding his injury

    1. Tev
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Wait for pressers if at all possible. If they both start vs WBA they could have a field day and you’ll be kicking yourself.

    2. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Both.

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      B maybe

    4. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Oh dear, you put both in..? Puli is a season keeper at some point but he could take another 2-3 games to get back on the pace. Would have to say Puli rn as it's only a matter of time until Havertz gets a token goal in spite of poor performances.

    5. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      At this moment in time, probably both.
      Havertz will drop in price, and it's not clear when Pulisic will be back..

    6. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Cheers all

  14. stat sifter 888888
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Trying to decide between Rich to Jimi or Auba to KDB/Sterling. Would have to think Jimi on principle.

    1. Tev
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      What principle? I would definitely go Auba to Sterling, Richi looks great...

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Auba out first

      2. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I just don't like seeing him on the left wing but classed as a forward. Should have stuck to my principle of only picking up-top men as forwards and front 3 players as mids (Rich>DCL) but went with my gut to gamble on Rich being able to cut in, which teams seemed to have wised up to.

        1. Tev
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          He will outscore DCL regardless of being out there imo, wouldn’t worry about him

    2. RoyaleBlue
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Richarlison has looked good. Why get rid? Everton are second for expected goals. And Richy himself is 10th for xG and 3rd for xA. Seems an odd time to get rid of him!

      1. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Jimi has some great fixtures coming up and Rich has some tough ones in an attack where the goals are likely to be shared far more evenly (if at all).

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I’d rather sell Werner for Jiminez. Keep richarlison.

          1. stat sifter 888888
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Yeah, that is another consideration as I do have Martial. He was dropping far too deep with Pogba and Bruno to link the play but I do have faith that there will soon be more creativity from mid and he will get in the box and get goals.

    3. Whats the Huth
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Richarlison stats insane

      1. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Which stats are insane pls?

      2. stat sifter 888888

        Actually dw, think I can guess.

  15. vincentwsho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Should I do ASM to Zaha for a -4 before his likely price rise?

    Both form and fixtures look great, but worried about his transfer rumors before 5th Oct

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

      If you have the funds for sure, Zaha has the bit between his teeth

    2. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yeah, it's what has put me off so far, along with Batshuayi. Probably worth it with ASM's injury now though.

      Poorly posed question who's thought about wildcard and gone through with it? Yay if you have on both nay if you have thought about it but haven't. If you never thought about it then say why?

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

        Ok plenty nays already

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

      Nay... So far

    7. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yes - but it's the whiskey's fault.

    8. BrooklynGooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yay. Feeling good about it.

    9. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yay, my team was in disarray and I'm sitting at 4m OR

    Who to bring in for ASM?
    A) Townsend
    B) Trossard
    C) Klich/Costa
    D) Pereria
    E) McNeil

    Appreciate that’s a lot of options... but seems a few decent form picks out there!

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I like C

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

      No love for Podence?

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

        A lot of love but have Jiminez so don’t quite feel the need to double up.

    3. Rake
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      C

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

      I think Pereira will tick over best, most of WBA’s play seems to go through him and he’s on set pieces. Predicting steady returns.

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

    Havertz to Hamez?

  20. Eewraks
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Nightmare GW3 of 36 points! Without Son, Mitro, DCL, Hamez..

    What should I do with this bunch?

    McCarthy (Steer)
    James-TAA-Ayling (Justin, Ferguson)
    Auba-Bruno-Salah-WardProse-ASM
    CheAdams-Werner (Davis)

    A) Keep to original plan: Auba -> Sterling/KDB
    B) Get rid of ASM to another 5.5?
    C) Wildcard

    Thanks in advance!

      C, unless you're a southy fan.

      Incredible foresight

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

    Is ASM to Zaha worth -4 and bench Mitchell?

    McCarthy
    TAA Egan Shaw Mitchell
    Salah Rodriguez Son
    Werner DCL Wilson

    Steer ASM Justin Bissouma

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yep

  22. THE WERNER DELUSION
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    what happened to the Werner essential and Southampton are best of the rest talk? loooooooooool

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      No werner and soton here since day 1.

    2. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Could easily be true as of next week.

      1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Keyword is could

        1. You've got red on you.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I kinda agree - 9.5m for a striker that hasn't actually done anything yet is not great.

    3. Rake
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      He has looked good. Really unlucky not to score vs Brighton. Should've taken the pen today. He'll defo do well vs WBA.

    4. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Too true aha. Anyone's guess who's gonna be after Salah/Mane this year though.

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

      I got sucked into Werner hype/ownership and could only afford Alli not Son who I really wanted

    6. sinik
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Werner will likely massively haul next week against WBA. Worst xGc by a margin.

      1. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        On another day he would have skinned Fabinho on the inside for the first one and on the outside for the second one and blazed both.

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

          Werner and James have been two of Chelsea's brightest points, this kid is clearly just obsessed. Look at his username lol

  23. ryacoo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Keep Ings or sell to DCL?

    1. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Get both? I have Ings, Bamford and DCL

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

        Not on a WC and have decided to keep Mitro and Werner for now.

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

      Richarlison imo

    3. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Sell

    4. Whats the Huth
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Richarlison

      1. stat sifter 888888
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Why such a big Rich fan? He's playing on the left wing and from what I've seen is no more likely to shoot/get in shooting positions than James on the right. I'm sure that xGA stat or whatever would back that up.

  24. FC Hakkebøf
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Suggestions? 2 FT but willing to take a hit

    McCarthy
    TAA Davies* Saiss
    Salah Auba* Son ASM*
    Werner DCL Mitro
    ____
    4.0 Justin Ferguson Bissouma

    Nothing itb

    TA

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Auba ASM out. You pick

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

        Yeah Auba to KdB/Sterling is a no brainer.. Question is whether I should take a hit to get Zaha instead of a 5.5 midfielder (sell davies for 4.0 defender)

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

      Auba for City mid the clear one. ASM can go for Podence but wait for news. No need for a hit imo.

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

        Podemce on my radar.. But they signed a new striker and I reckon they will go 3-5-2.. No room for Podence if thats the case.. But hopefully he keeps his spot for now

        1. Rake
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          I believe he holds his place. Klich/Costa other options.

        2. sinik
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Fabio Silva just turned 18

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

    Alli to Zaha or Jrod

    Have DCL already

    1. Tev
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Hamez no doubt

    2. FC Hakkebøf
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Hamez bc of fictures

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

        Fixtures

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

          Tbf palace have great fixtures.

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

            Chelsea and Eveton in the next 3.. But yeah they've been leaky so point taken

          2. sinik
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Everton have twice the xG

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

              I brought in rodriguez over Zaha. I was just saying Evertons fixtures arent much better than palaces over the next 6 or so.

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

                Sure, but form over fixtures.

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

                  Yes but boom boom said Rodriguez because of... Never mind.

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

                    I see what you're saying.

  26. Slurpy
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    I was looking at ASM to Brady but the lad is made of glass

    1. Tev
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Podence?

  27. Rake
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    McCarthy
    Lamptey TAA Dier
    Salah Auba Havertz Hamez Soucek
    Werner Mitro

    Steer KWP Brewster Ferguson

    0.9 ITB. No FT.

    KDB/Raz (who?) for a hit? Or Save?

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

    Havertz to Hamez or Barnes?

    1. NABIL - 1 season 1der
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      So many H to H questions..

      Pick B for a change

  29. All about the galacticos
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    BTW, how did werner look? a worthy GW3 captain?

    1. You've got red on you.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      He looked okay imo; unlucky not to get an assist for the pen and maybe even a goal but hard to judge on 10 men.

      Has every chance to get points against Brom but Chelsea clearly haven't gelled yet.

      1. All about the galacticos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        would you trust for captaincy?

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I am gonna bring him in after a price drop.
      He had great pace and was easily more dangerous than Mount/Havertz imo.
      Shame about the dribbling in the final third.
      Captaincy is debatable.

    3. Tev
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Not taking too much from that game. Fact is he’s playing one of the worst teams in the division next season and he is very good at scoring goals.

  30. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Mates Podence, Traore or Foden as best option for next GWs?

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

      Monitor the game tomorrow

    2. stat sifter 888888
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Yeah the game tomorrow should be very valuable for you. Whoever starts alongside Jimi out of Traore/Podence, which looks more likely to be Podence. You should also be thinking about Neto and potentially Silva as well though.
