Bamford bags again as Sheffield United remain without a goal ahead of tough fixture run

SHEFFIELD UNITED 0-1 LEEDS UNITED

  • Goals: Patrick Bamford (£5.7m)
  • Assists: Jack Harrison (£5.5m)
  • Bonus:  Illan Meslier (£4.5m) x3, Bamford x2, Harrison x1, Luke Ayling (£4.5m) x1

The Patrick Bamford (£5.7m) bandwagon is set to continue rolling after the Leeds forward’s late headed goal saw the Whites triumph in Sunday’s Yorkshire derby.

In a pre-planned link-up the striker nodded home a Jack Harrison (£5.5m) cross, having put two headed efforts wide in the opening half.

“This one came off my nose but I’ll take it! I was a bit disappointed I didn’t score a header in the first half.

“Before the game I said to Jack, I’m going between the middle centre-back and the far one so put the ball there. First half he did it, I didn’t score.

“Second half he did it, I got the goal. Fair play to him for putting it on the money.” – Patrick Bamford

Having highlighted Leeds’ lack of creativity in the opening two Gameweeks, Marcelo Bielsa was happier with his side’s build-up play at Bramall Lane:

It was a just result. The first half was pretty even, we could have scored and conceded. Second half was a lot better for us.

We managed to attack well, we had six or seven opportunities. In that sense, the offensive animation was better.

While Leeds have scored eight times on the way to earning six Premier League points, Sheffield United have neither a point nor a goal to their name with three Gameweeks gone.

The Blades face trips to Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea, along with a visit from Manchester City, in the next five Gameweeks.

“We’ll be glad to see the back of September. Fresh start in October at Arsenal away. I can’t fault a lot of the things the players have done this afternoon. It was a really tight game.

“I’ve been told you gave the man-of-the-match award to the Leeds United goalkeeper; we’ve got to take our chances in the Premier League. That’s the top and bottom of it.” – Chris Wilder

As Wilder alludes to, this game was almost a tale of two goalkeepers before Bamford’s late winner.

Aaron Ramsdale (£5.0m) – who was well on his way to a monster haul before conceding – racked up seven saves from a combination of good stops, poor finishing and long-range efforts.

While Illan Meslier (£4.5m) made three fewer saves, the Leeds keeper’s stops were arguably more impressive.

All the same, John Lundstram (£5.4m) will himself feel he should have rattled the net just shy of the half-hour mark.

The midfielder was afforded a big chance just before the half-hour mark, as Ben Osborn (£4.9m) broke to find David McGoldrick (£5.4m) in the box.

The striker’s flick arrived at Lundstram’s feet from six yards out but the midfielder was unable to convert as Meslier managed to push the close-range effort around the post.

The 20-year-old then somehow managed to get a rangy left hand to George Baldock‘s (£5.5m) stinger, produced after the wing-back had rolled Harrison to make shooting space in the area on 37 minutes.

Bamford had signalled his intent in the opening period, heading over twice from a Kalvin Phillips (£5.0m) free-kick and a Harrison cross.

Stuart Dallas (£4.5m), who saw a looping effort tipped over by Ramsdale in the first half, was almost on the scoresheet in the second period.

Ramsdale had Chris Basham (£5.0m) to thank for clearing a Dallas effort just before it went over the line.

The Leeds full-back had rounded the stranded stopper after a mistake from Ethan Ampadu (£4.5m) allowed the ball to run through.

A surging run from Dallas then saw subsitute Rodrigo (£5.9m) head wide, before Bamford just failed to connect with a whipped ball from Harrison with 20 minutes remaining.

The Blades almost took the lead from a late corner as Jack Robinson (£4.4m) skewed wide with his weaker right foot from point-blank range after Oli McBurnie (£5.9m) just about failed to get his head on the delivery.

Bamford then stole the show and all three points for Marcelo Bielsa’s men, with the striker earning praise from his manager post-match.

Asked about suggestions that the budget FPL forward might struggle at the top level, Bielsa responded:

There are a lot of people who thought contrary to what you say.

The league season is very long. Hopefully he can continue to show his obvious qualities.

The enigmatic Leeds boss was also pleased with his side’s first clean sheet in the league:

It is an achievement we were looking for, to not concede. I think we defended well, with few errors.

Having said that, our rivals did have opportunities. We grew.

On taking off Rodrigo, who had been brought on for the second half, Bielsa explained:

A few minutes were left, I had to substitute Bamford or Rodrigo. Bamford is a very useful player on set pieces against.

But it wasn’t a good decision because Bamford was tired. I should have kept Rodrigo on the field.

Wilder, for his part, is fretful over the Blades’ lack of sharpness in front of goal.

They found a bit of quality at the end. But I think it’s a foul on Sander Berge [in the build-up to the goal] yet again. I think there’s a couple of things that haven’t gone for us the last two or three games, from a decision point of view.

I’ve just seen Marcelo is going to walk right across me right now…no, he’s not, he’s swerved me because he might be on the receiving end of a tackle if he did!

We have to be more clinical. The best chances fell to us. From John Lundstram, George Baldock, Oli McBurnie, Jack Robinson. Four or five really good chances.

The first goal is so important in the Premier League, as we all know. I thought the shape of the team was good. We know how Leeds play, we understand how they play. High energy, high tempo. It was a really quick game.

When it opens up you have to take your chances; we haven’t. We ultimately get punished by a fantastic ball and a great header.

When you look at our goals or when we do create chances, they’re well worked. We haven’t got the players in the group to do something out of the ordinary. We have to really work hard to create our chances, which we did in the game.

After three consecutive defeats, Wilder is “hopeful” more signings will arrive before the transfer deadline:

The longer it [the losing run] goes on, it becomes more concerning. There’s still plenty of belief and fight in us.

Despite being taken off after 73 minutes, FPL midfielder Oliver Burke (£4.5m) put in a decent audition for FPL bosses seeking bench fodder.

The ex-West Brom winger had two shots, one inside the box, while creating three opportunities for his team-mates.

Defender Robinson might be one for the watchlist, with the left-footed centre-back possibly set for an extended run in Wilder’s defence due to Jack O’Connell‘s (£5.0m) knee injury:

“Things are not going for us at the moment. Obvious disappointment with Jack’s injury. Massive disappoint for the boy, he’s worked extremely hard to get to where he has and he’s been pivotal to our rise.

“He’s going for an operation on Wednesday, so minimum six months.” – Chris Wilder

    Awful rank, team value taking a beating and wildcard is tempting.

    I thought the * players would do well so i'm hesitant to get rid. What do you think lads? give the boys one more week?

    Mccarthy,
    Taa, doc*, lascelles, KWP
    Salah, KDB, James Rodrigues, Podence
    Werner*, Martial*
    Steer, Mitchel, Stephens, Davis

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      team is fine, i'd either hold or martial to ings

    2. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Doesn't look like a side that needs a WC to me.

      I'd consider swapping your attackers, or at least one of them out for DCL/Jiminez

    3. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I’d lose Doherty for Reguilon or Samedo. Frees up 0.5m to upgrade Lascelles.

    4. BooYaKasha
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Who would you bring in?
      At this point we know nothing

    5. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      This team could score big this week.
      Wait on Podence, as your only transfer if injured.
      Bench docherty. Play TAA+lascelles+KWP.
      If you had to make one transfer, maybe martial or werner.
      Then hit the button, on saturday and have the full IB to play with. You'll feel better for it.

  2. Marcin the Pole

    If you had the money ITB to do it, would you do Son -> Bruno? Or do you think there are better options?

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      That’s the strongest move, imo.

    2. GreenWindmill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I'm still sceptical of what Fernandes will regularly get from open play but if penalties continue at this rate then irritatingly he will do very well. Depends if a cheaper option allows you a valuable upgrade elsewhere probably.

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son to Bruno is good.

  3. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Armstrong

    Playing in the ‘James Rodriguez’ role for Southampton. Was everyone’s cup of tea preseason but then got injured. He’s back now and I thought he looked great vs Burnley.

    Any takers as a Son replacement? Frees up funds to do Foden > Bruno later.

    1. Marcin the Pole
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Don't mind that. Decent fixtures too. Do you own Podence in that price bracket already though?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Nope, Foden and JRod.

        1. Marcin the Pole
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          In that case I'd say go for it. Sounds like it would spread funds across your team nicely.

    Cant believe Vardy is the same age as Rooney. A true inspiration

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Rooney's 48 too?

    2. Lord Flashheart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      2 years apart

      1. Marcin the Pole
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        1 year and 3 months. You have to admit Vardy's consistency and performance is remarkable for his age.

    3. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Leaner (Rick an pribs) physique compared to Roos Irish potato genetics.

    Right, I've had a dreadful start to the season so you'll all agree that in that regard I'm unique and special and deserving of both sympathy and assistance.

    McCarthy
    TAA, Keane, Walker-Peters
    Sterling, Salah, Son, Foden
    Jimenez, Adams, Mitrovic

    Steer, Soucek, Shaw, Ferguson

    1.1 ITB, 0 FT (did Werner > Jimenez already)

    Need to lose Son (for a hit) but getting a bit tempted to wildcard. Would make quite a lot of changes if I did pull the trigger but would I just be points chasing or are the penalty takers/Everton attackers going to keep this up?

    Maybe a couple of hits fixes things up and the wildcard should be saved?

    Thoughts welcome, I'm a bit all over the place with my FPL thinking currently.

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I think a couple of hits for now and save the WC. The team is not bad and very solid. Son out for a hit a reckon.

      1. GreenWindmill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks, I'd like to correct all the obvious mistakes immediately but doing it over a few weeks and saving the wildcard is *probably* the percentage play.

        I won't ask who to switch Son to because that's probably about 30% of the posts at the moment so I can just check those (lol)

        Anything else worth a hit though?

        1. The Units
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Not right now as it will all change again tomorrow and next GW! Maybe look to upgrade Adams if you downgrade Son. Target penny takers, that's what I am going to do.

          1. GreenWindmill
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I hate the concept of loading up on players purely for penalties but it's unfortunately a valid tactic right now. Thanks for the responses, appreciate it.

    2. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      your twit about the fpl being a marathon was hilarious. the best twit of the season for now 🙂

      1. GreenWindmill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Haha, thanks Daniel, certainly seems to have captured the mood of the community - have had to mute it! Absolutely ridiculous!

    3. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      And I wouldn't WC that team, just sell Son and reassess next GW

      1. GreenWindmill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Cheers, probably sensible, easy to kneejerk.

    4. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son to Rashford and you are golden.

      1. GreenWindmill
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Not a big fan of Man Utd's form or fixtures as it stands so hadn't occurred to me - thanks for the thought.

  6. Weasel Boy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Werner to Ings no brainer right?

    Southampton vs WB seems like a much better fixture than Chelsea vs CP.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Looks like it on paper. Guaranteed penalties too.

      1. Weasel Boy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thats it exactly

  7. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    - double Southampton defence
    - Davies
    - Son
    - Podence
    - Werner
    - Wilson and Mitro other forwards

    Time to WC surely?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Soton just cleaned
      Podence should be fine and still a good pick
      Werner will come good, two home games next
      Wilson scored and Mitro yet to play

      Strap those knees down imo, Son and maybe one forward out to DCL and some other guy for a -4 would be enough

      1. Marcin the Pole
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        This. Chill out, there's plenty of time to go. Bench Davies for now, get rid of Son and you should be fine with just a -4.

    2. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Feels like you’re looking for some positive affirmation.

      If it feels right to you, do it.

    3. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Hm.. I would wait on podence news, double saints Vs brom us not the worst and def not Worth taking out yet. Team sounds good IMO. Son must be dealt with.

  8. rnrd
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Hi guys

    got Son right from the start at 9 purchase price.
    if his purchase price falls from 9.1 to 9, will my selling price still be 9 or will it decrease to 8.9 ?

    thanks for your help

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Still 9

      1. rnrd

        thank you

  9. Lignja
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Wtf to do with this team now?

    McCarthy
    Taa, Justin, Mitchell, Vinagre, 4.0
    Salah, Auba, Kdb, Son, Podence
    Wilson, Mitrovic, 4.5

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son out and hold.

    2. cigan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      It's alright, a hit or 2 will fix it. Obviously bin Vinagre and probably Son (if he's out for more than 1 game) & get some Everton for a start

    3. Make America Greta Again
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Son to Mahrez.

  10. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Son and Kane to Bruno and Jimi for - 4? Ta.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Very tempting

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      No reason to be losing Kane for a hit

      1. dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        I agree

        1. Make America Greta Again
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Feel Spurs will be less pacy and threatening without Son. Bit of a dilemna. Fixtures are saucy for Wolves.

    3. Pipermaru
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      I would, I'm selling Kane for Jimmy this week, agree with you that they might be much worse without Son, (mun) and (WHU) not an easy fixtures.

    penalty b/s solved ,it will need a manager to tell them to miss it on purpose thus setting the trend,or conversely delete penalties completely from fantasy football

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Or just load up on spot kick takers in the mean time

        Am given some consideration to losing James Rodriguez, who I feel is world class and has performed exceptionally in the first three games, for a mid on penalties...

        1. Twisted Saltergater
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Same, it’s so sad

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I'm not getting rid, but I am benching him for next GW. I feel Klich on pens v City and Zaha on pens v Chelsea are just too enticing to turn away from. It means I will have 7 pen takers in my Starting XI

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            I'd also add, as a Richarl owner, I'm not yet convinced JRod won't be on pens.

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

              Yeh I don't think Rich will be nailed on pens either.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member

              Perhaps, but at least not until Rich has missed one?

        3. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          He'll go for Pulisic when fit, probably.

    3. GreenWindmill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Haha, imagine if the 'fix' the managers agree upon is for their players to deliberately miss the penalties which are awarded for stupid handballs.

      The minus points flying around for KDB, Salah, Ings, Vardy, Richarlison, Jimenez... I can't lie, it would be amazing FPL theatre 😆

      Neither of these will happen.

    A) Werner to Vardy

      not really sure on either, both seems a bit point chasing.

        Any decent defender for 6.3 or under? Just need to get rid of Dier tbh

          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          it wont be very popular as just conceded 3 but reece james, very attacking, nice fixtures and two home games next two where they are better defensively. Just backing a bit of a reaction

    1. Lord Flashheart

      i'll make it shorter:

      A son to KDB for -4
      B son and mitro to mahrez and vardy/ings for -8

      1. dbeck

        A

  15. The Mighty Whites
    • 5 Years

    1FT, 0.2 ITB:

    Martinez, Button

    TAA, Saiss, Lamptey, Taylor, Mitchell

    Salah, KDB, Son, Rodriguez, Alzate

    Jimenez, DCL, Bamford

    Thinking to Son to Barnes?

  16. hogree
    • 3 Years

    Foden or Mahrez?

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      mahrez if you can afford without hits

    2. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Mahrez will troll you, foden will do the same, but for less money.

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Short term punt before getting Pulisic is a sound strategy

  17. Fuddled FC
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Would you do?

    a) Havertz & Werner > Bruno & Jimi/DCL (-4)
    b) Werner & Wilson > DCL & Jimi (-4)
    c) Wilson > DCL
    d) Werner > Jimi

    How do Leicester City defence line up when Pereira is fit?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Justin drops out - Castagne moves to the left (played there at Atalanta)

    2. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Castagna should move over to the left.

    3. BIG TONES
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Justin drops out, when is Pereira back?

  19. BIG TONES
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Leicester next four

    WHU, AVL, ars, leeds

    Vardy time on WC?

    1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Yeah but just keep an eye on his injury

      1. ChickenTikkaMoSalah
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        With pressers etc

      2. BIG TONES
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Roger that

  20. ChickenTikkaMoSalah

    What’s Salah’s EO this gw?

  21. SM001
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Bamford & Son to Ings and Thiago Alcantara (-4) ???

    1. dbeck
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Thiago isnt a fpl asset

    2. BIG TONES
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Best at 6.0 is Townsend imo. Also Thiago wastes a Liverpool slot

      1. cigan
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Trossard

        1. dbeck
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          love the torssard pick

        2. BIG TONES
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Also have Maupay, but fair shout! Townsend has returned in every match so far though, just saying

          1. cigan
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 27 days ago

            Yuh Townsend got the tasty fixtures too

            Trossard very unlucky not to score against United tho, are Brighton the bargain team we all expected Southampton to be this season? Maupay-Trossard-Lamptey triple-up doesn't look like a bad idea at all

    3. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Bamford is close to being a top scorer and you want to sell him ?

      1. SM001
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        True but so is Ings and I need to offload Son.

  22. Super Saints
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Is this the best WC team at the moment? 2.3 still ITB!

    Martinez
    Castagne Lamptey KWP
    Salah KDB Zaha Klich
    Vardy Jimi DCL
    Steer Stephens Dunne Mitchell

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Apologies 2.4 ITB.

    2. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Can you stretch to get Grealish for your penalty bonanza?

  23. Tonyawesome69
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Looking for suggestions. Still got my WC.

    1.4itb 0ft
    McCarthy
    TAA Robbo Taylor Justin
    KDB Salah Podence Havertz
    Jimenez DCL
    (Peacock Ayling Bissouma Vassilev)

  24. The Man Pastore
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Do we know when Ferguson will be back?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      we don't unfortunately.

  25. cigan
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Lloris
    Trent Robbo Digne Lewis/Mitchell
    KDB Mane Son Grealish (Bissouma)
    Wilson Adams

    Got 1 FT + 0.5 ITB

    A) Son > Mahrez (the obvious one)
    B) Son & Lewis > Mahrez & Castagne (-4, exact funds)
    C) Son & Bissouma > Hamez & Foden (-4)
    D) Son > someone else (looking at Trossard, Hamez, Foden or Barnes)

  26. Make America Greta Again
    • 6 Years

    If Vardy misses the next game, who would be on penos?

    1. Daniel - Go Granville
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Tielemans

    2. BIG TONES
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Tiele took the fourth pen when Vardy was off, so him.

      1. BIG TONES
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Third*

      2. Make America Greta Again
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Thanks guys, might stick him in for Son.

    3. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      not totally clear, by yesterdays evidence tielemans,
      however who knows, could be maddison if he had started, or perez if also on pitch

    4. LOLarov
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Teilemans clearly

    5. All about the galacticos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      maybe a mute point, but Vardy creates most of the pens himself.
      If he's not on the pitch you'll get far less pens.
      Think about what you'll get from Tielemans when Vardy is not playing?

  27. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Considering getting Ljioris on a WC. Historically he has saved the most penalties. He could be the bargain of the season and get 200pts.

    1. cigan
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Makes a lot of saves as well, was unlucky to lose a rare clean sheet yesterday. It's been painful owning him so far but I'm def. sticking

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        wish he was 5m. he is 5m in fanteam so i do have him there

  28. SM001
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Son & Jimenez to Vardy & Rodriguez (-4) ???

    1. BIG TONES
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Wouldn't lose Jimi ahead of a great run of fix. Plays Fulham at home next up too. Wolves won't play poorly every week.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        He started scoring on the wrong part of the pitch

        1. BIG TONES
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          haha fair, just gotta put that down to a bad game though

  29. dbeck
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    fairly happy with my team, attack is the main issue but thinking of holding both Martial and Timo, or should i move one to Ings/Jim with my FT? Any other ideas?
    I quite like the idea of having two ft over the IB

    Johnstone Button
    Saiss TAA Dallas KWP Mitchell
    Podence Pereira Salah KDB Soucek
    Werner Martial DCL

  30. michaelington
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 27 days ago

    Currently on 10 points, but I look at my team and I am actually happy with it. Not even tempted to take a hit on knee jerk transfers, what a strange old start to a season.
