    Play?
    Lamptey (Bur) or Robbo (City)
    Podence (Leics) or DCL (United)

    Martinez
    Robbo, Zouma, Chilwell,
    Grealish, Salah, Zaha, Son C
    DCL, Kane, Bamford

    Steer, Podence, Lamptey, Mitchell

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Lamptey and DCL

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Lamp and Dom

    3. ⱼₐᵣᵥᵢₛₕ

      Tough. I'd definitely bench Podence and probably bench Robertson.

    4. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      seriously can't condone benching Robbo
      sure he may blank but why take that chance - he has a higher ceiling than Lamptey

    5. kennethrhcp

      2 months, 21 days ago

      I couldnt bench a 7+ defender.... you'd regret that call more than bench Lamptey if the benched one did better (if that makes sense)

      Play Rob & DCL

      Cheers not easy decision, Lamptey is a machine & I can see Podence destroying Leicester?
      Pool cannot buy a clean sheet & DCL needs JamesR, Digne & Richy to flourish

      1. NateDogsCats
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Digne is back this weekend and James might be too, I think there'll be goals in that game, Everton will want to get back to winning ways and stick to the top of the table while MU desperately need to pick up form

            Potter is the one I want to get a read on Ryan.

        The right option is to:
        Hold Jimi
        Move Jimi to Werner
        Move Jimi to Wilson, funds then shift to Kdb for gw10

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Last one in the long term. Seems to be some fear on here that Werner will get a rest.

            i feel with havertz out and potentially pulisic too he surely starts but stranger things have happened
            would normally be antonio but no updates yet

            1. Pegboy
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              I thought Antonio was confirmed out for this week?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          I like C but if you've only 1ft then may go A? see how the IB goes for you? 2 fts might be a god send

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            thanks, got 2ft
            one is likely saiss to coufal unless we get an update he's def starting
            could of course hold Jimi and wait post IB - but that seems boring

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Any help greatly appreciated lads. 1 FT 0.5itb

        TAA, Lamptey,Taylor (Saiss, Mitchell) is my defence, Lamptesy slight concern & probably no sub defender

        A: Ings to Wilson (bench Podence)
        B: Bank FT, play Podence (lei) & bench Ings
        C: Saiss to Coufal as cover. Play Podence, bench Ings

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Saiss to Coufal - play Coufal

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Bench Ings & play Podence is in that option... you think wise?

            Play Coufal over Taylor?

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Over Taylor, yes.
              Why bench Ings? if fit he might get something, if not he won't feature.

              1. kennethrhcp
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                he's out for 4-6 weeks im pretty sure

                1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Bench Ings - reassess over IB.

                  1. kennethrhcp
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 10 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Ings is out for a month+
          only reason to keep is to bank 2FT and sell next week otherwise just too many other scoring options out there

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            cheers HMC... might go B & just play Podence

      5. Stram Dunk
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year

        Is Jota injured?

      6. Linca - TerribleFromKepa
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        1 FT and 1.1 in bank

        Thinking Saiss to Zouma or Chilwell. At the same time I'm tempted to downgrade Jimenez to A Bamford or Wilson to allow a Podence to KDB in a few GWs...happy to take a -4

        Martinez (steer)
        TAA, Saiss, Lamptey (Taylor,Mitchell)
        Salah, Son, Grealish, Podence (bissouma)
        Kane, Jimenez, DCL

        Cheers lads.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years

          Worth it in the long run.

      8. Bielsa Murderball
          2 months, 21 days ago

          do you think bamford is a must-have? leeds are such an attacking team, aren't they?

          1. kennethrhcp
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            there's no "must have". he's a great option

          2. Holmes
            • 7 Years

            Nah, not must have. Decent enabler though

        • Kun Tozser

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Unlikely to be fit for GW8 but should be good after the IB

        • Return of the FF
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          What do you reckon here..?

          Use my 1 FT this week Robbo to Chilwell

          Or roll to next week and do Son to Sterling and Robbo to Walker?

          I currently have no City or Chelsea assets, also sold Trent a while back.

          Cheers!

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Chil worth having yes, better option than walker anyway.

            1. Return of the FF
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Cheers... how come you think Chil a better option than Walker? Do we know if Chil will keep set pieces? Seems to be losing them?

              1. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Chelsea looking solid and Chilwell still attacking.
                I'd rather Diaz (cheaper than Walker) or Cancelo (more attacking and cheaper) if going City def.

            2 months, 21 days ago

            Seen this a couple of times from you Flynny. I have Foden and the same bench. I really like Bowen too but at the moment I'm leaning towards keeping and reassessing over the IB. I drew up some pros and cons re Foden the other day to help inform my decision, concluded he could be great value over the coming weeks.

            Pros

            - Price, 6.6 City mid who has been returning when he plays.
            - Plays for a team who are likely to score plenty of goals over the coming weeks, when he's on the pitch, good chance he'll be involved.
            - 9 SIB this season which going into GW7 was more than any other team-mate.
            - Has potential to score off the bench if required as we've already seen this season.

            Cons

            - Reported as being 'under the weather' of late but rotation will always be a factor regardless, how often is yet to be seen.
            - Holding onto Foden blocks other City assets who are arguably more nailed at the moment.
            - There are other players in and around his price bracket who are catching the eye and offer more assured game time.

              2 months, 21 days ago

              Thanks mate.

              I'm just concerned that he will be benched this week

              In hindsight should never have got on wildcard.

              V tempted with the hit.

              Good luck

            Fornals is looking betetr statistically but I like Bowen as a player so I'd probably go for him personally

            Would you save here or get Chilwell in for Saiss and play him over Justin or Ayling?

            TAA Ayling Justin

              You have 3 starting defenders this week so i would hold and see what happens to Saiss this weekend. I dont think its a foregone conclusion that he will see more bench time.

              Podence->Grealish imo and start Saiss over Ayling.

            Are people who are after Timo not a little worried that whenever Tammy is on the pitch with him (which could be for the foreseeable games) Tammy is the one who is occupying the space between the width of the posts and Timo is the one running the channels? That would certainly concern me as when he was successful in Germany he was almost always the lone striker with supporting midfielders.

              Not really too worried. He will probably play left flank against Sheffield United this weekend who are conceding a lot of chances down their right hand side.

            A, B or C?
            Thoughts on which is better? I have 2 FT

            A) TAA + Podence + Jimmy --> Vestergaard + Ziyech + Werner (-4)
            B) TAA + Foden + Jimmy --> Creswell + Ziyech + Werner (-4)
            C) Saiss + Jimmy --> Lamptey + Werner (no hit)

            Need a Mane replacement. Son or Rashford for next 2 then flip to KDB in GW10? Or go for KDB now and save a transfer later? Rashford seems best but so hard to trust United.

              Why replace?

              Go for Kevin now
