    Boring questions. Start Ayling or Kilman?

      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Kilman

    2. Little Red Lacazette

    Squad

    Martinez
    TAA Lamptey PVA
    Son Sterling(c) Salah(vc) Barkley
    Jimenez DCL Brewster

    Forster Ayling Soucek Masuaku

    I have 0.1itb left with 0ft

    Thoughts please?

    Cheers!

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

      Maybe play Ayling over Brewster

    What would you do if you still had KDB in the team? its quite tricky, doubt he starts this gw (on the bench at best) and from gw7 his fixtures are shu, LIV, tot.

    Martinez
    Taa Saiss Lamptey -- James Mitchell
    Kdb* Son Havertz Barnes -- Burke
    Watkins Jimmy DCL

    A: KDB >> Salah (c) as planned
    B: Havertz + Barnes >> Salah (c) + Barkley/Trossard (-4). I dont like havertz/barnes in my team anyways. Issue is that my bench is super weak with probable nonstarters if kdb doesnt play,

    1. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      A

    2. KneejerkJoe
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      B. KDB back in training today and will be s great differential in weeks to come. Also dont rate Havertz or Barnes.

  5. Trophé Mourinho
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    What are Guaita owners doing?
    I suspect many moving to Martinez right? I still have faith in Guaita and they still have great fixtures, he will come good

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

      The good run starts now so would hold. Not sure why they signed Butland though.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        probably just as back up, cant see Guaita ever getting ousted

      2. Brosstan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        The good run started last game and Guaita did f all, useless pos

    2. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Keep for Fulham. If he concedes again, I'm ripping him out of my team as they won't keep a clean away to Wolves

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Fulham haven't scored at home yet..

      2. Trophé Mourinho
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        yea if he doesnt get one that sucks, last gw was very annoying

  6. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Is there any point having patience with Barnes and saving a transfer? Or get Grealish, as I have exact money right now?

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

      Do it now

    2. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      move looks good for free

    3. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Do it

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      I sold this week - Leicester fan too

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

    These moves worth it for a -4, R.James and Richarlison to Kilman and Kane? Would leave me with the below:

    Martinez
    Digne Saiss Kilman
    Salah(c) Son Rodríguez Grealish
    Kane Jimenez Ings

    Button Bissouma Justin Ferguson 0FT 0.0ITB

    1. Trophé Mourinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Yea, Spurs play tonight do it after that.

      1. sunzip14
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        This

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

      Moves look fine, but as you already own Son, are you not tempted by a bit of Aguero..?

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

        Not yet, will aim for him for GW10

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

          That’ll work mate.

    3. Over Midwicket
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I really like it. Wait to see if Kane plays 90 tonight without getting crocked

    4. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Yes good moves imo.

    5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Yeah do it after the game

  8. tinear
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Martinez
    TAA-Saiss-Lamptey
    Salah(C)-Son-Grealish-Havertz
    Kane-DCL-Maupay

    Steer-Ayling-Bissouma-Mitchell

    1ft 0itb

    Pretty template now. Gtg? Or play Ayling over Lamptey?

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

      Right set up

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Ta

    2. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Gtg. I would risk Mitchell as first sub (if that's a risk) for one last time.

      1. tinear
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Might as well. Cheers

    Hi what changes do you think are needed this week:

    McCarthy
    Dallas Saiss Zouma
    Salah Barkley Puli Son JRod
    Kane Wilson Watkins

    Got 1FT and 1.7ITB.
    thanks!

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      8 good attackers so you'll have to bench 1, probably Wilson

      Zouma to Chilwell might be good but not sure this is the right week to do it, well if you're starting Zouma then might as well do it

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      gtg or sell McCarthy

  10. cnewman7
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    What to do here? Not feeling confident about this team this week. 4.7 ITB 1FT.

    Just short of Kane for Mitro.
    Not against a -4 to improve things

    Ryan
    Saiss Digne KWP
    Salah Son Grealish Podence
    Werner Jimi Mitro

    McCarthy Bissouma Justin Ferg

  11. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Who scores more this gw?
    A)Ake Sterling Mitro
    B)Robbo DCL Maupay

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years

      B

  12. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Need some help. Struggling for a playing bench so willing to take a hit..

    Guaita.
    Digne. Saiss. Lamptey.
    Son. Salah. Zaha. Anguissa.
    Kane. DCL. Brewster.

    4.0. Anguissa. James*. KDB* 0.0itb.

    Thinking:
    A) KDb + Brewster -> Kun + McGinn
    B) KDb + James -> Mané + Kilman/4.9
    C) KDb + James -> Grealish + Hamez

    Any ideas?

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I like the combo in C but how can you sell a mid and a def for 2 mids?

      1. Over Midwicket
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Sorry KDb + Anguissa get the chop

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          C looks good

        2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          Would prefer that then personally

    2. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      How does C work? 2 mfd for 1 mfd +1 def? (assume James of Che)

  13. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Which one as first sub?
    A) KWP
    B) Justin

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

      B

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

        Does this mean you are playing one and benching one or benching both?

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          I'm playing Mitchell and benching both
          But first sub is important as Mitchell might not play at all..

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

            Then KWP before Justin

            1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 2 days ago

              Cheers!

  14. mrtapio

    1 month, 2 days ago

    When gw5 startet my tv was only 100.2, now it's already 101.2! has there been more risers lately?

    1. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      seems to have been a lot, my TV has gone from 101.3 after GW4 to 102.6 currently

  15. fr3d
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Are we underestimating how important VVD is to Liverpool's attack? Kane doesn't even need a touch in Burnley's box to score a brace and assist twice

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      The main importance is in set plays imo, so it will be a loss for the fullbacks.

      On the other hand, now they'll have to attack more to win games

  16. MarcusAurelius
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Not having Kane is getting too to bear now. Thinking of doing the following after tonight’s game of course.

    Sterling + Wilson > Kane + Grealish (-4)

    Worth it yes or no?

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

      Wouldn’t sell Sterling before West Ham - has two previous hat tricks vs the Hammers

    2. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I wouldn't take the hit for that

    3. jia you jia you
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Sterling out for a hit is asking for trouble!

  17. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Justin owners, with Pereira not returning for 6 weeks, are you going to keep him? Leicester defence not looking good but he's still a decent cheap option and I'm not sure if it's worth using a transfer on a cheaper defender..

    1. thom830g
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      I am keeping!

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

      I’m keeping. He looks good going forward and already has a goal and an assist. Also clean sheets are hard to come by at the moment

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

      Kerping

    4. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Although Fofana looks to be some player, our defence is not looking good without Soy. Our full backs are primarily offensive and Ndidi is a huge loss. I'd sell - I don't have much confidence in us for FPL - especially with a European campaign to conduct.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Europe will cause serious issues for a squad unsuited to it.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          At full strength we'd be OK but our midfield is nowhere near good enough at the moment - off the pace and little creativity.

  18. thom830g
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    1FT + 2,3 ITB

    A) Che Adams -> DCL + Vinagre -> Mitchell (-4)
    B) Che Adams -> DCL
    C) Vinagre -> Mitchell
    D) Mahrez -> Bruno

    Team is:
    McCarthy
    TAA - James - Saiis
    Mahrez - Salah (C) - Son - Podence
    Wilson - Che Adams - Kane

    (4m - Justin - Bissouma - Vinagre)

      B

  19. Mooster
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Bench one:
    Chilwill Castagne Kilman

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 2 days ago

      Castagne

  20. Squeakybum99
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Start Kilman or Saiss?

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

      Tough - actually think Kilman is a safer start this GW but Saiss has a higher ceiling if he does.

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

        Prob still Saiss

      2. Squeakybum99
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Interesting. Think I'll go with Saiss, and hope if he doesn't start for any reason, doesn't come at all. But risky 😛

  21. Jet5605
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Which option looks best. 1 FT and 2.6 ITB

    A - Digne & Havertz > Konsa & Salah for -4 hit
    B - Digne & Havertz > Konsa & Mane for -4 hit
    C - Ings/Jimi > Kane for no hit

    McCarthy
    Digne - Saiss - Egan - Taylor - Egan
    Son - Bruno - Havertz - Soucek - Grealish
    Ings - DCL - Jimi    

  22. KneejerkJoe
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 2 days ago

    Brag post.
    103.5 squad value, anyone beat this?

    Hope it will give an advantage going forward, and not ending up with holding on to players for their value when the tides turn.

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

      Nice, what rank does that come with?

      1. KneejerkJoe
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 2 days ago

        Thanks. 250k, but -8 this week...

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

          That’s a really good rank to have with such a high team value. Very well set but be careful with the hits and value chasing.

          1. Old Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Wise words.

          2. KneejerkJoe
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Thanks. Im happy with my team structure now, so plan is to not take any more hits unless I have to. Had to get Kane, not only for short term, but hes Also an easy swap to Aguero later if I want to in gw10.

        2. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 2 days ago

          250K at this stage is huge but -8 will set you back a bit

          1. KneejerkJoe
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 2 days ago

            Yeah, dont expect it to pay off this week, but hope it will long term. Never had a start like this, so will try not to get carried away with transfers and hits.

            Klich -》Barkley was not needeed, but hope it pays off over Villas great hun of fixtures.

            Can also see Jimenez score 2 this week, but normally they dont score big against those teams , and Kane is needed long term

    Is there any chance Jose will revert to bus parking after last weekend's collapse? Also, if Bale is likely to start soon wouldn't that lead to a potential sharing of the points between him, Kane and Son?

      Bus parking will come later in the season, not now against Burnley. Will probably start appearing from GW9-10

    Hi guys here is a bit food for thoughts imo. My OR is not to bad and I did a bit of a silly
    calculation of my total points vers. my gw 1 teams points. no transfer make no point hit no wc and perma cap salah I would of being 18 points better of, in this early stages it would had a massive effect on overall rank. It shows that all our tinkering is a massive gamble we really need to get it right week in week out. On the other hand it shows that our first selection before season starts is a pretty solid base. Yes my team value would have been suffering and would have been 5 boring weeks ghosting my team but seeing the rank inside of the 90k mark, I thing would made up for it. Anyways would love to hear your thoughts and your experience about this, have a great day fpl community let the fpl gods be with you

      Thats fpl for you...as you said making no transfers would.have made the 1st 5 weeks boring....would hate to think how you would go a full season with no transfer

        Yes so true, but if you only just check and once in a while get an inform player in also make sure you got a starting 11 no injuries etc..boom.....boring as hell but it seems effective so far.i will monitor this going forward.

      There is a website that calculates the impact of your transfers and whether or not they lead to net gain or net loss in points.

    Morning

    Which isnrhe better pair for the next 6-8 gw?

    A. Kane & Son
    B. Salah & Mane

  27. LIARS POKER

    Barnes + Wilson to Barkley + Aguero for a -4?

    Bit early on Aguero but could be a good way to get ahead of the curve

    Salah over Kane for captain and why?

      I think Pool will pump Sheff Utd more than Spurs will beat Burnley. Sheff Utd's defence isn't the same as last season and Pool have the home game

    Salah v Mane.

    Salah tends to do better in home games is on pens but Mane was electric last night. Who to get?
