Son and Kane top the FPL points table as United’s defence crumbles again

Manchester United 1-6 Tottenham Hotspur

  • Goals: Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m) | Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m), Son Heung-min (£9.0m) x2, Harry Kane (£10.5m) x2, Serge Aurier (£5.2m)
  • Assists: Anthony Martial (£8.9m) | Kane, Aurier, Son, Ben Davies (£4.9m), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m)
  • Bonus: Son x3, Kane x2, Aurier x1

A ruthless Spurs thrashed a Manchester United outfit that started fast, were then reduced to ten men and ended up a shambles.

Thirty seconds into the game and it looked like it might be the visitors who would be the whipping boys as Anthony Martial (£8.9m) burst into Tottenham’s area and Davinson Sanchez (£5.4m) gave away a penalty.

The spot-kick was, as usual, put away by United’s most popular Fantasy Premier League (FPL) asset, the 20.7%-owned Bruno Fernandes (£10.5m), and visiting coach Jose Mourinho could have been excused for preparing a scowl similar to the one he wore during much of his tenure at Manchester.

The fact he left the pitch at full-time with the sort of smugly magnanimous smile that only a massive victory can produce was down to his side’s excellence, a misguided moment from Martial and a complete capitulation from the rest of the United team.

But amidst all the sound and fury of a truly bewildering game, the key Fantasy takeaway was the surprise presence of, and a brilliant performance from, Son Heung-min (£9.0m).

While Mourinho had suggested the midfielder might be fit to play at Old Trafford, a hamstring issue had his official chances down as 25%. That prompted a massive FPL sale, with a net 1,308,054 managers – well over half his total ownership – getting rid of the South Korean.

He responded by starting, scoring twice, assisting once, earning maximum bonus and recording 18 points for his second double-digit haul (the other brought in 24) of a remarkable start to the season.

Twitter users were in meltdown at half-time, with the hashtag ‘Took Son’ – as in ‘I took Son out of my Fantasy team this week’ – trending worldwide.

By the final whistle, that had been replaced by #OleOut as Gunnar Solskjaer’s men fell apart.

The rot didn’t even start with Martial’s dismissal, after 28 minutes, for an irritable slap to Erik Lamela‘s (£5.9m) face sparked by the Argentine’s weasly attempt to elbow the United striker.

VAR upheld referee Anthony Taylor’s decision despite also showcasing Lamela’s embarrassing theatricality and his massive culpability in the whole event. But Martial walked, Lamela received only a booking and the match hurried away from the hosts. 

In truth, it was already heading in that direction.

United’s lead lasted all of two minutes, with the fragility of centre-back pairing Harry Maguire (£5.4m) and Eric Bailly (£5.0m) – the latter preferred to Victor Lindelof (£4.9m) – exposed for the first of many times.

Maguire’s feeble attempt to head the ball clear created a panic in the area and the ball eventually fell for Tanguy Ndombele (£5.9m) to equalise.

Three minutes later, Son put Spurs ahead when the new-look assist machine Harry Kane (£10.6m) was fouled, picked himself up and played a quick ball through to the midfielder, who dinked the ball over the advancing David De Gea (£5.5m) and in.

United responded, the lively Mason Greenwood (£7.4m) chalking up three attempts by the 23rd minute, but Son had already blown a great chance to double his tally before the Martial dismissal and it was one-way traffic from then on.

A minute after Martial finally trudged off, Spurs made it 3-1 when Bailly made a mess of trying to play out from the back, Kane pounced and played the ball to Son, who weighed up his options before squaring back to the striker for a simple finish.

Losing a striker should have at least meant United retained some semblance of shape at the back, but instead, enormous pockets of space kept opening up on their right flank and when Serge Aurier (£5.2m) was given the freedom to exploit this, he responded by setting up Son’s second goal.

It could even have been five by half-time, Kane missing a good chance from a near-post header, and that scoreline would not have flattered the visitors.

Solskjaer made changes at the break, shoring up his midfield by swapping out the blameless Fernandes and the pedestrian Nemanja Matic (£5.0m) for Fred (£5.4m) and Scott McTominay (£4.9m), but the fact Spurs only scored twice in the second half was as much to do with their own more relaxed approach than anything the United coach, or his players, did.

It was 5-1 on 51 when the rampaging Aurier smashed home from a brilliant Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m) first-time pass and Kane finished the scoring with an unstoppable penalty after substitute Ben Davies (£4.9m) was taken down by a sliding Paul Pogba (£7.9m).

Solskjaer was suitably crestfallen at the end of the match, saying:

Today, it was almost like Christmas, too many mistakes all came at once. Too many mistakes against a good team and you’ll be punished. It’s very embarrassing.

What might make things worse for him is the crash in confidence of Maguire, the unreliability of Lindelof and the rustiness of Bailly. United seem close to bringing in a new striker (Edinson Cavani) and a left-back (Alex Telles), but the unaddressed weaknesses in the centre of their defence do not bode well at all, as 11 goals conceded in three matches makes abundantly clear.

In Fantasy terms, however, the plentiful owners of Fernandes can still look forward to a good schedule through to mid-December, while Martial’s three-match ban could mean out-of-position opportunities up front for midfielders Greenwood or, more likely, Marcus Rashford (£9.5m).

As for Spurs, Son is currently the most-bought Gameweek 5 player – it would be interesting to know how many of those purchasers sold him ahead of the United match – and Kane is also in the top five.

The pair have 89 points between them this season. United’s entire squad has 72, albeit from one game less, and owning Son and/or Kane looks highly advisable when their next four opponents are West Ham and Brighton at home and Burnley and West Brom away.

So reasons to be cheerful are many for Spurs fans and Fantasy owners alike, while Mourinho was similarly upbeat:

The squad is very good, that’s why we won these matches, rotating players, bringing in fresh legs… and then Lo Celso injured, Bergwijn injured, Bale working… look at the squad we have, look at the attacking players we have, plus Vinicius in the stand. It was an amazing performance. I’m very proud of everyone at the club.

That could all be construed as a bit of a dig at a United board he believed failed to back him in the transfer market.

One thing’s for sure – Mourinho’s successor at Old Trafford is the manager with all the worries at present.


Manchester United XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; Matic (McTominay 45), Pogba; Fernandes (Fred 45), Rashford, Greenwood (van de Beek 67); Martial.

Tottenham Hotspur XI (4-3-2-1): Lloris; Aurier, Dier, Sanchez, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Sissoko, Ndombele (Alli 69); Lamela (Moura 45), Son (Davies 73); Kane.

    Think I might go no City until week 10

    Tough fixtures ahead and of course we are a bit dodgy atm and have loads of concerns with injuries.

    No City sounds mad but for now anyone with me?

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Aguero also back which makes Sterling less appealing and potential rest candidate

      1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Doubt Sterling gonna rest. Also, Sterling sucks at playing fake nine. He is actually more dangerous on the wing.

          Have Foden and am happy with the value long term. KDB is the other I'm looking at for more certainty on minutes, but just don't rule out a City goal fest coming soon

      2. korbendallas82
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        maby their attacking football will be better for all assets with aguero vack, and sterling in normal postion.

        1. korbendallas82
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          back*

        2. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Aguero will be hurt again in a week

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Not on this one mate, you first

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah, I’m with you, will likely wildcard around then and see if any of them seem better value by that point

  2. EgyptianKing
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Any thoughts on this possible WC team?

    McCarthy
    Robo, Saiss, Dier
    Salah, KDB, Rodriguez, Grealish, Son
    Maupay, DCL

    Steer, Brewster, Mitchel, Dunne

    Cheers!

    1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • 6 Years

      I like it

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Even with no Kane? ahah

    2. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      McCarthy to Martinez
      Steer is 3rd choice, swap for different £4m
      Both Mitchell & Dunnes places at threat, could lose two players at same time.

      1. EgyptianKing
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Great inputs. Thanks man

  3. Carefree Crew
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Martinez, (Forster)
    TAA, Saiss, Coady, Lamptey, Dunne,
    KDB, Sterling, Havertz, Hames, Foden,
    Jimenez, Mitrovic, Brewster,

    £1m ITB

    Best move for Son?

    KDB bought for £11.5 so potential £200k swing if I do it tonight before Son rises. Sterling yellow flagged. Only 1 FT.

    Coady, Foden & Mitrovic are also under consideration.

    What's my priority?

    1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Don't do early transfer unless you are prepared to WC. Anyone could test positive for COVID.

  4. Dirty Harry
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Having an absolute shocker start to the season. WC gone and down in a 5million rank.

    Yolo FC.

    Just did Foden + Pereira + Ings to Son + Grealish + Bamford for a -8.

    You'll see me in the 6 million rank next game week.

    1. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Especially if those players test positive for Covid. Not sure why transfering so early.

    2. Chelsea Dagger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      This season will be about patience. I made lots of transfers early on, now I’m just sitting back.

  5. Stupendous
    • 8 Years

    Holy moly...

    Martinez

      31pts gw5. Looks great but so did every other team last gw.

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Not a chance in hell this lot gets 31 pts man

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Always a chance, I've been looking at something similar but mid of Salah Son James Pulisic Barkley.

      2. PastaConcerto
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        And the same squad next GW could score 100 pts, that is why this season is brutal

    2. Willmissudimitrypayet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Maupay over Zaha for me. Lamptey in for KWP?

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Like Lamptey yea

  6. Puyol Pants Up
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Those on WC, whats your team looking like right now?

    1. Stupendous
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Have a look up

      1. Puyol Pants Up
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I like it alot, but surely it's naive to go without KDB/Sterling?

        I like Sterling alot, even if Kun is back

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I'm just looking at our fixtures, our form, the injuries, this mad season....

          Think I can survive with no city until things clear up around week 10

          May try and squeeze Sterling in.

          Essentially it is KDB/Sterling v Kane.

          Right now I would take Kane all day and that's even already owning Son.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      mainly whoever scored points last week, it seems 😉

    3. PastaConcerto
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      Pretty much the same as everyone else

  7. Ray In Bruges.
    • 7 Years

    McCarthy (Nyland**)
    TAA KWP Justin (Vinagre**, Mitchell)
    Fernandes JRod KDB Traore** (ASM)
    Jimenez Ings DCL

    a) WC
    b) Vinagre+Traore > Dunne+Grealish (-4)

    1. cravencottage
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      No need to WC

      1. Ray In Bruges.
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Will Nyland be frozen or do I risk losing funds?

        1. Major League Shocker
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          He's not frozen, but not likely to drop before you actually do play your WC.

          For example, last year Button did eventually drop to 3.9, but I think it was not until Jan/Feb.

  8. Abusive_Sgt_Daelrhos
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Last night I did--> Bavies,Podence,Werner->Chilwell, Son, Wilson (-8).

    Should I WC still? Kinda took a big hit.

    McCarthy,Nyland
    TAA,Bavies,Justin,Mitchell,Buur
    Salah,Sterling,JRod,Podence,Bissoum
    Werner,Jimenez,Mitro

    1. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Save your wildcard you don't know if you'll need it for covid! 🙂

      Damage is done. Positive transfers though.

      Depends on how many players you want out & who you want to get in. I don't think your revised team needs wildcarding.

      Take the hit, save your wildcard.

  9. Bruno Bruno!!
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Just done the following -4:

    Aubameyang + Rashford + Werner -> Grealish + Salah + Kane (-4)

    leaves me with the following:

    Johnstone
    TAA Dier Taylor
    Salah Grealish Periera Trossard Son
    Jiminez Kane

    Button KWP Mitchell Davis

    Have I made good moves and would you do anything further.

    Currently 4m in the world

      I like it a lot

    2. Pratik
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I'm not sold at all by Spurs as many people on the website are. I would not double up, they will have games like Everton/Newcastle too. Keep Son, drop Kane, or the other way round.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        4 goals after the red card, just sayin

        1. Pratik
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          yeppp! And it's Mourinho, I'd be surprised if Spurs transforms itself to a goal machine any time soon.

  10. Says
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Crazy stat: Christensen has played 3 games, and is on -1 overall points

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      He’s actually played pretty well also

    2. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Egan too. And I've still got him. Might as well play him against FUL (H) and then sell.

  11. The Suspended One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    In trying to find the player to transfer in and save our seasons, it’s funny that nobody is considering the players we already have.

    Trent, KDB and Werner haul in the next 2 weeks, mark it

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Yeah, just checked the members area and KDB has almost identical minutes/xGI to Son. Despite having had harder fixtures.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        I almost sold kdb, Mitro and Trent for a -8 and I’m really thinking I’m going to be happy I didn’t

        1. Pratik
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          whom were you selling them for btw?

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Kane son Pulisic

          2. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            The other involving TAA was Chillwell son Kane

    2. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      I absolutely love how KDB was everybody's darling a week ago and now people can't dump him fast enough. It's absolute lunacy IMO. It's like people on this site have never played FPL before, with the amount of one week result chasing that's going on.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        agree and think many haven't watched the games... despite City being underpar he could've hauled in all

  12. cravencottage
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Reguilon or Chilwell? Both very attacking but Spurs may have more CS than Chelsea.

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Chillwell for sure, set pieces, better in air & passing for bps

    2. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      And I doubt Reggie is nailed

    3. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Castagne.

      1. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Another attacking player. Just not sure Leicester have many clean sheets in them

        1. cravencottage
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          But Reguilon and Chilwell have as many Chances Created in 1 game as he does in 4.

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Creating chances are grand but you need to take some of them.

        2. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Potentially more than Chelsea, dreadful at the back, prob more than Spurs.

    4. Carefree Crew
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      When Ziyech plays he may take set pieces from Chilwell. Lamps last interview said Ziyech not quite ready for the bench. (So he's close.) Chilwell is definitely nailed though.

  13. Ray In Bruges.

    I wonder which season has the most total Pts from players who've dropped the same GW.

    1. The Suspended One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      That would be a function of number of total players/transfers, so this year or last

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Oh sorry you mean dropped in price. Tough stat to estimate, but it always works that way, football ebbs and flows

  14. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    On WC

    A) McCarthy Robbo Bamford
    B) Martinez Digne Wilson

    1. Pratik

      Very difficult. A) for me

      1. Sterling Malory

        • 5 Years

        Isn't it just.

        1. Pratik
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          In fact, even with the heads up, nothing is concrete for me.

          Martinez vs McCarthy
          Robbo vs Digne
          Bamford vs Wilson

          1. Pratik
            • 11 Years

    Will Nyland be price frozen til next GW or do I risk losing funds? Have other squad issues to work out, already taking a hit.

    1. Bushwhacker
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Should go RED and be price locked I think.

  16. Bookkeeper
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 25 days ago

    Thinking of taking out
    KDB > Grealish
    Armstrong > Pulisic
    Werner > Kane

    All for a -4 pts hit. Good moves?

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Selling Werner looks a good move. Not sure selling Dé Bruyne is just yet.

      1. Bookkeeper
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        KDB's fixtures look tough, whereas Grealish is most likely on Pens and is on form and has the fixtures. Too much money tied up in KDB, releasing those funds allows me to add attacking players that can create overall more points. That's my thought process.

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Fair enough. But Dé Bruyne is quality and can do it against any opposition even if he has a poor defence behind him. Get both?

          1. Bookkeeper
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            need to shuffle the pack to fit both in. With 1m in the bank, a little tricky. Want Pulisic as well, exciting player to own.

        2. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I'm probably getting rid of KDB on WC as well, he hauled whenever I did it last season but I never learn.

        Please don’t sell Werner until AFTER Southampton

    Keep your transfers guys (WCs excluded), remember that time Mane got Covid and that time all the players went away to foreign countries to play games against other nations with perhaps different Covid protocols?

    1. On WC, deciding btw:

    A. Jimenez TAA Bamford
    B. Kane Robertson Brewster

    2. Im leaning B but would mean one of Brewster / Ayling / Mitchell / Stephens need to start and others on bench. Any better enablers?

    Thanks in advance

    Are Wild Cards that are based on players that hauled last week generally successful ? seeing a lot of like this 🙂

    1. Pratik
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      you will often see your current team outperforming your wildcard team for the next weekend (it typically doesn't hold longer term though)

    2. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      They always do well, particularly when the teams have hauled between 4 to 7 goals. I find it a very accurate barometer of a player's future performance.

    3. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 25 days ago

      Not this year. Scores for the Great and the Good so far on wildcards: 33, 35, 36, 37.

    Biggest dilemmas are probably starting Lamptey over double Wolves and KdB/Son for armband?

        don't see me doing that for a hit as have Lamptey... feels very close between Son and KdB but WHU have surprised me in recent GWs so that's far from a gimme for Spurs

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Son is on fire, KDB sitting deep

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            I watched all the City games, KdB could've hauled in all... even from deeper he can get DDs especially considering Kun will likely be back

    3. Hotdogs for Tea

      2 Spurs but no City ... possibly Kane & Grealish to Wilson & City player ... just for some balance

      but I don’t have any City either

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Plan to make those moves after spurs good run of fixtures ends.

      1. Disturbed
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Big risk, but spurs next few fixtures are too good to ignore

    GTG here?

    Meslier (Caprile)
    TAA - Chillwel - Taylor - (Saiss - Mitchell)
    Salah - KDB - Rod - Havertz - Podence
    Jimi - Watkins - (Brewster)

    Who to captain?
    Playing Taylor over Saiss/Mitchell?
    Will Brewster start?

    1. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      KDB
      Yes
      No

    2. waldo666

      I'd play Saiss over Taylor.

    3. Joggers Nipple

      Taylor vs Mitchell vs Saiss is v v close imo

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Yeh.. I do think Leeds will score though, hence me preferring Taylor

    1 FT and 0.4 ITB

    Think I can stay strong until IB is over but not sure what to do tbh. JWP and Mitrovic probably need to go and no Everton looks a risk atm but need to raise funds to do anything meaningful.

    Not really keen to lose any my three premo mids so only thing I am seeing is downgrade of TAA. If anyone has any thoughts it would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Hotdogs for Tea

      Jimenez to DCL
      TAA to Robbo
      JWP to James Rod
      -8

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        Cheers mate, trying to avoid hits if I can and only just got Jimenez in. But in saying that I don't mind the look of those transfers.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          I think the hits would pay off but as a minimum DCL is needed imho, but other moves can wait for sure

          Everything goes down the left through Robbo and I have TAA so thinking of swapping

          JWP is a poor pick and needs upgrading

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Thanks again. Yeah annoyed at myself with JWP, was essentially an early placeholder at the price and then ran out of time and there he remained.

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              yip, I had Moutinho and only sold last week

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 25 days ago

      If Bruno to Son can make Mitro to DCL I would be tempted

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 25 days ago

        It could, not sure about losing Bruno though, 0.2 buffer though so can afford some thinking time at least, cheers.

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 25 days ago

          Understand that but
          Son and DCL
          vs
          Bruno and Mitro?

          Think, and really the way im playing its a guess, the first pair score more?

          1. waldo666
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 25 days ago

            Fair point, on current form it's the first pair by a country mile.

          often switches into midfield during games in Bielsas system... noticed him getting into a lot of dangerous positions in recent games... eyetest!

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Dallas for sure, played in midfield last week!
