    Anyone managed to get a team with Kane and Ageuro in?

    Only way for me is to sell Robinson to Saiss and play McGinn every week.

    Worth it?

          😀
          Some tweaks here and there allowed me to stretch my budget to Foden

      McCarthy
      Long. Mitchell. Justin. Lamptey. Saiss
      Salah. Son. Pulisic. McGinn. Bissouma
      DCL. Kane. Aguero.

        McGinn 4th mid is a bug weakness, thought something has to give to allow Salah, Kane + Kun!

        1. Whats the Huth
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Yeah. Would hope them three plus son will keep the score high

    3. jia you jia you

      No way imo! Kun hasn't got going at all yet so who knows how his form and fitness is at...too early for him!

    Listened to the Scoutcast as had a bit of free time...was interesting that Joe has no qualms about shipping Pulisic after one GW owning him!
    I feel the exact same, even more so as I feel I made a big error going Pulisic over Mane last week as my KdB replacement! Fair chance I'll reverse that, though tempted to save FT.
    Anybody else thinking of shipping Pulisic after just one GW?

    1. The Overthinker
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 11 days ago

      Mane was always the better pick . But don't think replacing pulisic is the best move

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 11 days ago

        FT and gives me a much stronger captain this GW than Sterling, Son or Robbo imo. 50/50 atm, fact that Mane is carrying a niggle is never a good thing!

        1. The Overthinker
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          How many times have we seen players ( vividly remember mane too once) being a doubt and then get 10+ points ?

          I am not at all saying it will be a bad move, for sure it'll be better for long term too.

          If you feel you've made a mistake, then I would suggest to do it as mane is the best captain choice imo this week

          1. jia you jia you
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            yeah, think by deadline he'll be in my team!

          Klopp's comment indicate that Mane's fine, his performance even more so.

            yeah, seems minor for sure

    2. Brosstan

      The fact that he's dropping pulisic just means it was a terrible transfer in in the first place

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        It really was, I overthought the fact I already had so many players in the Everton v Liverpool game...should've ignored that and just got in Mane!

      Pulisic is a good FPL asset IMO.
      He has eye for goal. Playing on RW may have made suffer a bit last GW but as soon as Ziyech starts he'll be in his favourite LW position.

      I'm staying patient here.

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Don't doubt that Amey...I can always buy him back even after a rise or two. It's just I'm not confident in a captaincy pick this GW...if I was I'd def save FT as my overall team is pretty good!

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Don't you have Salad ?

            No, just Robertson

            1. Amey
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 10 days ago

              Okay

              Robbo is a good © in himself although i won't © him myself so can't suggest you to do that 🙂
              GL !

              1. jia you jia you

                Armband is actually saved on Robbo atm so if I do save FT it might be an interesting punt! Cheers!

        Chelsea's fixture run after United is very appealing. Looks primed for points!

        Burnley (A), Sheffield United (H), Newcastle (A), Spurs (H), Leeds (H)

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 10 days ago

          Aye

          I don't like either of those away games particularly nor the Spurs game tbh

  3. Jet5605

    Spurs' 3 red fixtures are City at home, Chelsea away then Arsenal at home. Those should be green for Kane and Son IMO. Could easily haul in all of them.

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

      Agreed, people dropping them are in for tears

      1. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Dropping Kane for Aguero in gw9/10 (if Jesus still inj.) will not end in tears

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Yup
      I have got Kane this GW. Mostly will keep them till they are riding this ridiculous goalscoring form

    3. Make United Great Again
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I will keep them until they stop scoring. People playing the fixtures could get burned

    4. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Spurs are fixture proof in this form. I am keeping Kane and Son until they get injured

  4. stxrty

      Morning.

      Martinez
      Dallas - TAA - Chilwell
      Salah - Grealish - Son - Pulisic
      Kane - DCL - Maupey.

      Good to go? Roll the FT?

      1. Clay Davis
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        My team is pretty much identical and I'm tempted to dump Dallas to Kilman for next 4 gameweeks.

    • RED_ARMY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Thinking of doing TAA to Robbo for a -4 as i'm having a feeling Robbo might explode vs Sheffield. Mad ?

      1. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 10 days ago

        Not worth it

    • Kaptenen
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Do we expect Podence to start against Newcastle?
      Could do Podence -> Grealish for a hit

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

        Should start

    • Pukkipartyy
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 10 days ago

      I could do Pulisic to Sterling or should i priorities to get Grealish + Robbo (-4).
      THX!

      Is it worth putting kilman in this week or will he be dropped?

    • evilfish
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 10 days ago

      Is it worth hitting J-Rod out or keep and play Bissouma. I have had J-Rod since week 1 and could do without losing all his TV.
