Scout Notes

Should FPL managers sell Aubameyang ahead of Arsenal’s tough fixture run?

Arsenal 2-1 West Ham United

  • Goals: Alexandre Lacazette (£8.5m), Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m) | Michail Antonio (£6.4m)
  • Assists: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m), Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) | Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m)
  • Bonus: Nketiah x3, Ceballos x2, Lacazette x1

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£12.0m) is top of the charts for Fantasy Premier League transfers out ahead of Gameweek 3, with over 250,000 FPL bosses having offloaded the Gabon international since last Saturday’s deadline.

Modest returns in the opening two Gameweeks is one reason for the exodus but Arsenal’s upcoming fixture run is arguably the single biggest contributing factor, with the Gunners now facing five fixtures against sides who finished in the top half last season.


In nine meetings against these five clubs last season, Aubameyang delivered just two goals and one assist.

Even a player who consistently boasts one of the best goal conversion records in the division would struggle with his underlying numbers in these games: the premium midfielder managed only two shots on target (scoring both, naturally) and averaged less than one effort in the box per appearance.

Top half last season doesn’t necessarily mean top half this season, of course, and the jury is still out on a Sheffield United backline without the services of Dean Henderson (£5.5m).

Liverpool’s high defensive line was exposed by Leeds in Gameweek 1, meanwhile, and Aubameyang put Manchester City to the sword in the FA Cup semi-final in July.

Still, the fact remains that the Gunners’ Gameweek 3-7 opponents were all in the top six for fewest goals conceded in 2019/20.

Aubameyang will almost certainly bag at least one attacking return, maybe even a handful, in his upcoming five matches, but is he likely to outscore the premium assets from the other ‘big six’ clubs over the same timeframe?

And in how many of these fixtures would we realistically captain the Gabon international?

On paper, a premium midfielder exchange seems to be a straightforward decision – but FPL, as this weekend showed, may have other ideas.

ONE SHOT

Aubameyang was by some distance the most-captained FPL asset of Gameweek 2, with over two million Fantasy managers handing him the armband.

One solitary assist for Alexandre Lacazette‘s (£8.5m) opener was all that he could muster, with the Frenchman nodding home his teammate’s cross after just 24 minutes.

The expected avalanche of points failed to materialise as both player and club struggled to carve out chances, with Aubameyang’s only shot of the match coming from distance in the 90th minute.

There was mitigation for his own display though.

Aubameyang had cultivated a good understanding with Ainsley Maitland-Niles (£5.0m) and Kieran Tierney (£5.5m) down the left flank recently and he was without both of his comrades at the Emirates, with the former benched and the latter succumbing to an injury in the warm-up.

Bukayo Saka (£5.5m) and Sead Kolasinac (£4.9m) came into the side and although Saka “assisted the assister” for both of the hosts’ goals, the rapport simply wasn’t there between the left-sided trio for much of the game.

TIERNEY UPDATE
One statistic to rule them all

Mikel Arteta acknowledged a disjointed performance from his troops after full-time, saying:

I think we were a little bit lucky in certain moments, but we found a way in the end to win it and that’s the mentality I want from the team, to always believe that we can do it until the last moment, even when we have difficult games where suffer and make it very difficult for ourselves in certain positions.

But in the end, it’s three points and that’s what we’re here for. We will take some big notes because there are a lot of things to improve.

It’s very strange because we were talking with the staff today that they had their best week in terms of decision making, quality and execution with the ball by far since I joined the club, but then in the first 15 minutes, they gave the ball to the wrong colour too often. We need to improve on that and we know that we still have a lot of work to do here, but at least they kept trying and nobody tried to hide.

On Tierney’s injury, the Arsenal boss added:

Kieran is fine. He had a little muscular discomfort in the last few days. He tried today and worked in the warm-up but he wasn’t feeling comfortable today.
 
We believed that he was going to be fit but during the warm-up, in the last 10 minutes, he said he wasn’t feeling OK. We had to make a decision. We were prepared just in case and Kola came on and had a good game.

ANTONIO BACK AMONG THE GOALS

After an anticlimactic Gameweek 1, Michail Antonio (£6.4m) was back on the scoresheet at the Emirates.

Encouragingly, he was occupying the sorts of areas that led to his purple patch of form after lockdown ended in June.

His 44th-minute goal from a Ryan Fredericks (£4.5m) cross came from inside the six-yard box and he had an excellent chance to add to that tally after the break, failing to make proper contact on an Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) delivery from close range.

Antonio then hit the bar with a header midway through the second half and saw a goalbound shot blocked in the subsequent melee.

West Ham’s awful upcoming fixture run will put many FPL managers off but few players could compete with Antonio’s underlying stats after lockdown ended and there were encouraging signs that he could recapture that form on Saturday.

MOYES GOES 3-4-3

With Mark Noble (£5.0m) injured, David Moyes called on Arthur Masuaku (£4.5m) to replace him and turned to a 3-4-3 for the trip to north London.

While Jarrod Bowen (£6.4m) and Tomas Soucek (£5.0m) were not at their best, Masuaku was excellent in a left wing-back role and West Ham delivered a much-improved display following their poor performance in Gameweek 1 – something to perhaps consider for those targeting assets who play the Hammers in weeks to come.

Moyes’ troops registered twice as many shots as their hosts, with their goal not coming under much threat after Lacazette’s opener – that is, until a lapse in concentration allowed Dani Ceballos (£5.5m) to set up Eddie Nketiah (£6.0m) for Arsenal’s late winner.

Moyes said of his side’s display:

We were massively improved from last week. We made chances, played well, wanted to be as good as we could. But ultimately we are playing a form team. I am disappointed that we have not come away with a point at least.

Arsenal XI (3-4-3): Leno; Holding, Gabriel, Kolasinac; Bellerin, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka (Luiz 89′); Willian (Pepe 64′), Lacazette (Nketiah 77′), Aubameyang.

West Ham United XI (3-4-3): Fabianski; Diop, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Fredericks, Rice, Soucek, Masuaku (Anderson 85′); Bowen (Yarmolenko 83′), Antonio, Fornals (Haller 87′).

    auba to kdb worth a hit?

    1. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Would love mor opinions on this. Arsenal on their day can beat Liverpool with auba scoring

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Imo opinion Arsenal were fortunate to beat West Ham

    2. SINGH
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Correct. Arsenal looked bad against West Ham. If Tierney plays they have a chance to beat Pool but if he is out then Arsenal look disjointed at the back.

    3. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 4 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      If you hold this GW then you will hold for next Gw too, so compare with two GWS if auba worth +4 over KDB

    4. PastaConcerto
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'm not sure myself, unlike the torrent of peer pressure to do so. Only time will tell. I may wait a match and get Sterling for Leeds in GW 4.

    5. Coolboy9191
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Nope auba will score against pool followed by home to sheffield. Im gonna TC him for Sheffield game

  2. pakornk
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Egan is banned for only 1 match right? Keep or sell?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      3 I think, thought the next match available was Oct 3 or around there

    2. Apwilkin
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Just one match. But there fixtures are terrible when he comes back. If you can FT get him out now to avoid a potential price drop. But if you are like me and had other fires, hold him this week and pray you dont have more pressing fires next week to put out.

    3. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I'd sell

  3. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    I have KDB and Sterling but No Salah. Should I be concerned?

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      yes

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Not at all

    3. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think so, yes. Why did you do that?

    4. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Maybe. But you're good in gw4

  4. HurriKane
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    People who are writing off the Man Utd assets. Remember this time last week a lot of people were writing off Kane and Son after 1 bad game.

    Players like martial, Bruno will come good. Hold those knees.

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      They have Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea and Everton in the next 6.

      1. Joggers Nipple
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Arsenal were poor vs West Ham, Spurs have just let in a few vs SOT, Chelsea have Kepa and EVE have Pickford.
        Im hopeful

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Far too optimistic.. All are still top 6 contenders and not teams that promise points.

          1. Joggers Nipple
            • 12 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            Sure contenders but not sound defences. Imo

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              1 year, 2 months ago

              All of them still decent defenses to me.

              1. Joggers Nipple
                • 12 Years
                1 year, 2 months ago

                Everton and Chelsea have good defences? For real?

                1. Flair
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  1 year, 2 months ago

                  Everton conceded 1.14 xG and only conceding to wondergoals, yes. Allan and Doucoure making a massive impact to the midfield. Chelsea will greatly improve when Thiago Silva plays.

      2. FootballDog
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        They do well against the top 6

    2. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Currently liabilities, not assets

      1. HurriKane
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        lol form since lockdown suggest otherwise.

        jeez relax. cant become a liability based on just one game.

    3. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      The question is, when will it be? Given lack of match fitness and fixtures and the alternatives at hand, I'm not getting any of them in the near future

      1. HurriKane
        • 9 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        haul against brighton will change your mind. funny people like you seem to think united are suddenly sh1it based off one game

        Given the quality of their players they will rise.

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Not saying they are sh1tty but obviously can wait. BHA looked good defensively since the draw against CHE in pre season, and form of other options making it hard to trust them to be a better option atm. I'd hold but not buying

    4. PastaConcerto
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Exactly

  5. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 4 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    A) TAA + Digne + 4.5 striker(non playing)
    Or,
    B) James + keane + Richarlison

    Also,
    Will you put foden in your team with podence backup?
    Either zaha + 4.5mid
    Or,
    Foden + podence

    1. bennyp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      TAA + Digne.
      Triple Everton should scare you. I'd stay away from it. Don't expect them to walk over Palace and then Liverpool 2 weeks later.

      Foden + Podence

    2. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Will B have 12 starters?
      Who will be your 11th starter in A?

      1. KUN_DE_BRU_YNE
        • 4 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yup B have 12 starters, mainly for FODEN backup
        In A 11th starters will be podence/Foden

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Played well - looks decent value and should tick along

    2. bennyp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Yep. Wood is good. I want him in for Adams. He seems to always snag a few points

      1. De Gea is GOAT

    Hello good souls

    Please RMWCT

    Forster Ryan
    Mitchell Robbo saiss taylor lamptey

    Kdb barnes greenwood son anguissa

    Jimenez Jesus DCL

    Thinking of doing anguissa to podence or costa as 5th midfielder for rotation?

    1. NABIL - FPL otai

      Not sure about greenwood.. rest is good

        Thanks have brought in Podence so got 3 wolves

  10. Francescoli

    Regretfully played my Wildcard. Thoughts?

    Ryan
    TAA Digne Saiss
    KDB Sterling (c) Son Podence
    DCL Jimenez Mitro

    Steer Burke Mitchell Justin

    0.8 in the bank to bring in Salah for Sterling or KDB if needed.

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Nice, all looks good aside from Digne for me, for that price you want cs potential but imo that looks unlikely

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        They got a clean sheet away to Spurs first game of the season. The defence can't be that terrible right?

      2. Harry the Hack
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        With Crystal, BHA, Soton and Newcastle in next 5 i'd expect at least a couple

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Like it, but if I'm on WC I'd rather Martinez and Dunk

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I checked the fixtures and Vila have a horrible run.

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Save points galore

          1. Francescoli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            I prefer clean sheets from my keepers 🙂

            Aston Villa: ful, LIV, lei, LEE, SOU, ars

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              1 year, 2 months ago

              Only LIV and LEE look really hard imo

    3. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      So you've basically picked this week's dream team with Digne and Saiss who were in last week's dream team?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        no, he bought City and Wolves. Nothing wrong with being ahead of the curve.
        I dont agree with all the picks though.

      2. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I really wanted to max out on Wolves for their GW3-8 run. DCL I had already and wanted to keep. Everton have good fixtures so I think Digne is a decent shout. Mitro I brought in for Adams, as he is the talisman and has a good run of fixtures. The two Man City mids are in there as sword and shields. I can get Salah in once Liverpool's fixtures turn for the better. I toyed with Rashford in the midfield but settled on Son. For my goalkeeper I considered Pickford, Ryan and Martinez. Pickford has slightly better fixtures than Ryan but is 0.5 more. Martinez has terrible fixtures so I took him out of the equation.

    4. Amey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Lamptey
      Taylor
      Some good 4.5m options.

      If you have Ryan, get his back-up GK. (I'm not sure about Walton as he was flagged so ...)

      Attack looks mint

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah I'll get the back up Brighton keeper which I think is Steele right?

        I looked at Lamptey but didn't want to double up on Brighton defence. Taylor could be a good shout but is he better than Justin? I'm pretty keen on having a Wolves defender and an Everton defender as the fixtures are there.

        1. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Digne can be sacrificed IMO. But it's a good team 🙂

    5. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Downgrade digne to Taylor/lamptey & upgrade Podence?

  11. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Play Taylor or Mitchell?

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      T

    2. Najoman86
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Hard to go past Mitchell, at this stage. Would reassess if Burnley confirm the availability of Tarkowski & Mee.

  12. Sanchit
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    I know son and Kane were great but they just seemed to expose Southampton's high line.
    No way Steve Bruce's Newcastle are playing the same way.
    Still can't see spurs scoring againt sides that defend deep. Where's the creativity? Not in midfield! Not from the full backs!

    I have both but not confident at all to captain them.

    1. Amey
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Agree.
      And I'm jealous of you for having both 😉

      You must be flying in OR mate

      1. Sanchit
        • 6 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Not really.
        No Salah in GW1 and no DCl in GW2 means I'm still at 1.4m
        A huge green arrow from GW1 though.

        1. Amey
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Nice

    2. Apwilkin
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Agreed. I certainly don’t see any massive hauls like that coming. Defend deep and own the midfield (not too difficult against spurs), and I can see a lot of sides getting good results against them.

    3. pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Facing Newcastle they will have Bale and Reguilon. Should be entertaining at least.

    4. The Hunt
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I started off the season with Kane with GW3 very much in mind. If I remember correctly I posted that anyone who didn't have him in their team this coming weekend would need to be wearing an industrial nappy. Newcastle are so poor that Brighton could put three past them and I fear for them this season. Much as GW1 was Salah's and GW2 was Mane's GW2 was Son's but GW3 will be Kane's. Cricket score incoming. 😀

      Great team

      1. Amey
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Did nothing this GW 😀
        Dropped around 2m in OR

        1. NABIL - FPL otai
          • 9 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          Early days my friend

          1. Amey
            • 3 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            That's the only saving grace 😆

    3. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Save the WC.
      1) Noone clear about form yet. Dream Team in GW1 scored >30 points in GW2

      2) new signings can change a lot of things. Could lead to new systems and change to the players role.

      3) we're not sure about which United/Chelsea assets to bring in yet

      1. Amey
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah
        Thanks mate.

        This was one depressing GW

    4. Francescoli

      Nice team

      1. Amey
        • 3 Years

        Cheers mate!

    5. jia you (The No BS League -…
      • 5 Years

      Looks good to me, really like the Harrison pick although I'm going Klich myself.

      1. Amey
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Ha ha
        I picked the wrong one mate

        1. jia you (The No BS League -…
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          I dunno, Harrison is very attacking with his runs and could bag a few goal

  14. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Enough reason to WC?

    McCarthy
    TAA Digne Saiss Ayling
    Auba Havertz Alli
    Werner Jimenez DCL

    Tierney Reed Bissouma

    Pick one

    A WC

    B Sterling and Foden in for Auba Alli

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B for -8

    2. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B

    3. Harry the Hack
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      A. Ship that entire starting midfield. Ayling no longer has fixtures to hold him either.

    4. Sanchit
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You made a transfer and you didn't transfer out Alli or Havertz?

  15. Bielsa Murderball
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    is foden nailed?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ...

    2. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      No he plays for Man City 🙂

    3. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He plays for pep

    4. Harry the Hack
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      You are thinking of Jesus.

      He still goaled though.

  16. Vazza
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Which is better-

    A. VVD, Sterling
    B. Digne, Mane

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B

  17. Flair
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Interested to see how long Marcal is out for. Wolves defensively suspect with Vinagre.

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      They were playing against City....

      I'd love to bring Vinagre in, if Marcal is out for a while

  18. Najoman86
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    A. Foden & KDB or Sterling + £5.0m
    B. KDB & Sterling

    Is there a case for Foden and one of KDB/Sterling for a City MID double-up instead of KDB & Sterling? Enables one to diversify premium midfield selections, whilst still having a City double-up?

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      If we knew Foden was going to start regularly then yes

      1. Najoman86
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Indeed, City rotation is always the concern

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Yes. Foden should be well worth it for 6.5, the price is so low and an absolute bargain. Go for it if you want. I'm considering Foden + Sterling + KDB.

      1. Phil's Stamps
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I asked this earlier but who would you choose between VVD and Foden? Surely VVD longer term outscores him comfortably? On a WC and can't choose between them.

  19. Puntillimon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Anyone keen on Thiago’s prospects? Think he’ll get a fair few assists this season. Thinking of doing robbo and soucek out for Thiago and coady

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Foden is .5 more, Podence is .5 less. Can't see Thiago getting many returns.

    2. PastaConcerto
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      He looks a class above if he gets the minutes!

    3. Meinhoff
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Maybe in the near future, when he drops in price a little and gets used to Klopp system.

    4. The Hunt
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      At some point in the season you might fancy a double Liverpudlian defence or even Salané but your snookered if you're holding Thiago.

  20. Pad Randa (The OG)
    • 10 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Adventurous or mad? On a WC:

    Martinez - Steer
    Robbo - Digne - Castagne - Saiss - Mitchell
    KdB - Son - JRod - Barnes - Thiago
    Richarlison - Mitrovic - Jimi

    0.3 in the bank

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Looks decent - not sure on Thiago

      1. Pad Randa (The OG)
        • 10 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Nor am I, but Salah ain't going to fit into this team 😀

  21. Bielsa Murderball
    • 1 Year
    1 year, 2 months ago

    who is more nailed, foden or mahrez?

    1. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      We don't know 🙂

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Foden IMO, as a City fan. Mahrez seems to have lost Pep's trust, started only 1 of the last 5 games. Pep loves Foden too and he's been excellent for him.

    3. SINGH
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Seems like Foden was doing all the nailing...

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Need to brave myself to get foden.

  22. klopptimusprime
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    On WC

    which MID is better

    a: Salah / KDB / Son / James / Podence

    b: Salah / KDB / Bruno / Podence / Costa

    currently on DCL / Jimi / Brewster in ATT

    1. Chancer
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      prefer A right now

    2. The Hunt
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I know it was Manchester United's first game of the season last weekend but there were warning signs that Bruno might not be so fruitful this campaign so A definitely the smarter play especially with Son in there as well.

  23. Chancer
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Any guesses on Bale price or position? Feel for when he'll be added?

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 2 months ago

      9M MID, next century at this rate

      1. Chancer
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        haha, indeed. Thanks

  24. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Best move here fellas?

    A) Vardy -> Kane
    B) ASM -> Podence
    C) Holding -> 5.0
    D) Save FT

    McCarthy
    TAA, VVD, Bellerin, Mitchell
    Salah, KDB, Son, ASM
    Vardy, Antonio

    Steer, Holding, Bissouma, Davis
    Bank 0.5m, 1FT

    1. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Holding to saiss

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        0.1 short now

    2. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Probably B

    3. Boberella
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      B, seeing as you've no other wolves and their fixtures are good.

  25. as33
    • 6 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Which 1 whould u sell for KDB or Sterling: Mane, Salah, Auba

    1. FPL ElasticO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Auba

    2. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Auba

    3. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Auba

    4. The Hunt
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Auba's got his new contract. Downturn in output now guaranteed.

    5. NABIL - FPL otai
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      What they said

  26. FPL ElasticO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Best 5.5 - 6.0 mil midfield option w.r.t upcoming fixtures??

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Probably Podence

    2. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Podence

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Is it worth doubling up on WOL with Podence & Jimenez??

    3. ManofKent
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      Podence is tempting but there is rotation risk. Klich should get the odd penalty to tide him through meh fixtures

      1. FPL ElasticO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        I'm also thinking between those two options. Both return attacking points so far.....

    4. The Man Pastore
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      I think Pereira on the long run will be the best value

  27. ManofKent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Off the wall thought - Foden & Mahrez instead of a 10m + bench cheapy...

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      is their a chance only one of them will play? or both can play together?

      1. ManofKent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Generally it's likely to be either/or

  28. Mahjongking

    mccarthy
    digne awb kwp taa james
    son salah kdb
    mitro werner(C)

          1. Mahjongking
            • 5 Years
            1 year, 2 months ago

            niceee

  29. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    GW1 template team with McCarthy kwp asm vinny adams werner crushed.. only son and justin saving grace. Jury still out for salah and mitro.

    GW3 WC template to follow suit?

  30. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 2 months ago

    Yay or nay?

    ASM & Vardy -> Rodríguez & Jimenez (-4)

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 2 months ago

      not sure. Vardy vs WHM, AVL looks tasty. you can just do Saint Maximin to Podence for free

      1. Jinswick
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 year, 2 months ago

        Yeah that’s the current plan, Rodriguez just feels much safer than Podence and Jimenez vs Vardy feels pretty close. Vardy -> Kane is also tempting

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 2 months ago

          I am looking at Kane to Vardy/Jesus next week 😀

          Rodriguez is obviously playing well, just feels like Vardy is a captain material
