    From GW 12 on:
    cry liv LEI wol - Kane
    BHA EVE tot MUN - Vardy
    eve wol WHU ars - Werner
    Firmino is a no go
    MCY shu LEE lei WOL - Martial
    BUR SOU eve CHE - Laca
    Ings won't be back in time
    AVL CHE bur TOT mun - Jimenez
    CHE lei ARS shu MCY - DCL Richarlison

    Meanwhile bamford has WHU NEW mun BUR wba
    Watkins has wol BUR wba CRY
    Wilson if fit has WBA lee FUL mcy

    City and Pool are the two big hitting, pricy sides with good fixtures over the second half of December. Pool don't have an attractive forward option and many will have 3 city already or might be wary of Aguero and Jesus splitting time or facing rotation. I can envision strike forces of three cheapies or two cheapies and brewster on the bench to make room for the likes of 3 of Sterling, KdB, Salah, and Mane

    1. HMC

      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Cheers. Many will keep DCL cause of the value tied to him
      You left out Antonio who if fit is a great option

      1. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Absolutely right, Antonio could be one to keep through January

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I think your right on the two cheapies and Brewster, but I think people are starting to put a bit more money in defence with Chillwell and Cancelo which doesn't really allow for 3 of those 11.5 mil+ big hitters in midfield.

      1. Nice to Finally Michu
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I have Cancelo and Robbo and this is what i'm thinking about for GW 12:

        McCarthy (Steer)
        Robertson Cancelo Dallas (KWP Ferguson)
        Salah KdB Sterling Ziyech Bowen
        Bamford Adams (Brewster)

        I think it's possible even with people opting to spend a bit heavier in defense it may just turn out to be a matter of one's preference

        1. Phil's Stamps
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Oh yeah, it's possible, I considered the City double up in midfield but not sure on Sterling and think there is better value elsewhere. Robertson Chillwell Cancelo is a power back 3 I'm going with and seems to be slowly growing in popularity on here.

          GW10 I'll be probably looking like:

          Martinez
          Robbo Chillwell Cancelo
          Salah KDB Ziyech Grealish Jrod
          DCL Bamford

          4.0 Lamptey Coufal Brewster 1.2 ITB

          Almost all of that squad are locks, will have some fun with the Jrod slot - Mahrez, Jota etc.

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Thinking very similar here, gamble on the fixtures.

    3. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Let me remind as well that at the end of this run is GW 16 which is also the wildcard deadline so if you aren't comfortable with 3 cheap forwards long term and you've held you WC until then, you can re-evaluate then right in time for Kane to have FUL LEE avl shu

  2. Tony Martial

    Thoughts on N.Williams?

    @3.9 a bargain right?

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      If he gets game time he would be a bargain.

      Or you thinking bench fodder

      Waste of a third Pool slot

        What 3 Liverpool players would you want ?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 14 days ago

          You don’t think 3 Pool will be an option by end of season?

          1. WE GO FOR IT
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            There's a long way to go till then. I doubt you'd want to triple up on them till Jan at least.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 14 days ago

              The thing about fodders is that you don’t change them until you WC... which will likely be after gw30 for me

          2. Hotdogs for Tea
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            maybe, but certainly not now though. If you are worried avoid Neco but he could be a very good short term enabler.

            Chillwell, 5.5, 4.5, 4.5, 3.9 may give you a great rotation option with your 4th & 5th mid too if you want more big hitters ... I would not worry about the issue with upgrading fodder because it is easy to upgrade 3.9 to a 5.5 as part of any reshuffle of formation.

  3. NATSTER

    Is it too much reliant on United to have both Rashford & Bruno for their next two GWs : WBA, sou ?

    I already have Rashford and looking for way to bring Bruno in. Choices between replacing Son or upgrading Rashford.

    Salah - Son - Rashford - Grealish - Zaha
    Kane - DCL (Brewster)

    Salah

    1. the dom 1
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Same I have Rashford but thinking Bruno might be the better choice.
      Was thinking Rash > Bruno or Son > Bruno?

      I have Kane also.

      Waiting to closer to deadline now

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Double United for WBA looked juicy before they kept Spurs shut for 88 minutes and Rashford got injured.

        Keeping both Kane & Son doesn't look fit with their coming difficult fixtures too.

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      two premium Utd mids does box you into to a corner and restricts who else you can get in midfield

  4. Sz21
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    What move next stands out here?
    1. Son -> Fernandes and possibly captain.
    2. Jimenez -> Watkins/Bamford/Richarlison(punt).
    3. Podence -> Grealish.

    McCarthy.
    Cancelo, Chilwell, Mitchell.
    Son, Salah, Barkley, Podence.
    Kane, DCL, Jimenez.
    Button, Ayling, Justin, Bissouma.
    1ft, 3.8m ITB. WC in hand.

    1. Major League Shocker
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      3

    2. NATSTER
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Without looking to the team, I feel 3

      But then I see that you also have Barkley and that made me feel 1 might also be good

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      4 Podence & Barkley to Bruno & Romeu

      Romeu, Biss, Ayling, Justin & Mitchell rotate for 2 places in your 11

  5. Wolfman180
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    Is it worth making an early move of Robbo + Son to Cancelo + KDB or wait till after internationals given the move leaves me with 0.2 ITB??

    1. chocolove
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Mendy will be back after IB

      1. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Does he get his place back though?

        1. chocolove
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Only Pep knows, 5.4m is a bit steep even for occasional rotation.

    2. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I would hold Robbo over Cancelo or find a way to get both. It might be tight, Cancelo will rise 0.1, Son will fall at least 0.1 but there's outside chance of KDB dropping 0.1 too.

      1. Wolfman180
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I've set my mind on shipping Robbo out, Liverpools defence has too many injuries so I don't see many clean sheets. There's always a chance of getting attacking returns but I think there's more value in cheaper players.

        1. NATSTER
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I haven't looked at stats yet, but I feel Roobo has more defensive duty without VVD in the side. That might affect attacking game too.

    I’d like to know how many people on here that were calling Son a season keeper a couple of weeks ago still plan on keeping now...

    1. FC Hakkebøf

      Do you want them to tell you that they were wrong and that you were right?

      I don't consider anyone a season keeper but have no intention at all of selling Son at the moment.

      1. Gobigorgohome

        me too 😉

    3. Boberella

      Don’t do “season keepers” generally, but I’m hanging into him for now. Especially for Man City.

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Also the fact I have enough in the bank to swap out Zaha/JRod for KDB.

        1. Samir16
            2 months, 14 days ago

            exactly, same here. the trent move and a striker downgrade to brewster gets me zaha to kdb

      2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

        Me

    4. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Kane and Son are season keepers unless seriously injured or horrible form.

      There. I said it.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Horrible form may just be around the corner, relying on late winners against Brighton, West Brom and Burnley isn't a good look. Not sure more space on the counter compensates for playing a better defense.

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Could be.

          Would give them city's high line of defence, at least

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        We’ll see where your stance is on that in a couple of weeks time, their form is already sharply falling. Im going to say you won’t want both for much longer

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          So, a dip in form then.would hate losing them this week, but wouldn't mind losing them for KDB and Vardy in gw106

      3. Lukakus Unit
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I’m keeping Kane (because when fit he can put up points against anyone), but Mourinho will set up for the one-goal win against the top teams.

        1. Samir16
            2 months, 14 days ago

            i feel even if mourinho sets up that way, it helps son have space for the counter as it will draw the other team's midfield further into spurs half as well. and kane has certainly shown he can deliver a quality through ball assist to son

        2. Yank Revolution
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          Son sold, kept Kane.

        3. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I'd sell one. Preferably Son. Their fixtures aren't great and Spurs have gone on to being more conservative in the last 3 games. You'd expect the trend to continue in the next games as well.

      4. olidooley

        Hey guys....Very tempted to do this for a -4 hit now....0 itb after the moves...

        TAA, Son, Foden TO Cancelo, Fernandes, Ziyech

        Will leave this:

        McCarthy
        Chilwell Cancelo Konsa
        Salah Bruno Ziyech Grealish Soucek
        Kane Werner

        Peacock-Farrell Taylor Mitchell Davis

        1) Do it!
        2) Step away from the machine until Intl games are played

        1. NABIL - I had 4 Spurs GW1
          • 8 Years

              • 8 Years

        1) Jim > DCL
        2) Saiss > Cresswell
        3) Activate WC (out = Zouma, Wolves x3, Davis, Nyland, one Spur, maybe KWP or Sterling)

        McCarthy, Nyland
        Zouma, Cancelo, Saiss, KWP, Justin

          2 for now as Saiss doesn’t play. Jim can still get some points.

        Interesting, I can have this team by GW10:

        Martinez
        Cancelo - Chilwell - James (Lamptey, Dunne)
        KDB - Sterling - Mane - Rodriguez (Bissouma)
        DCL - Antonio - Watkins

        Putting the faith in a team that has looked lackluster so far but has incredible fixtures and a fit striker returning, risky. Could be that Bruno proves better than Sterling.

        1. Samir16
            2 months, 14 days ago

            double up on chilwell and james with not the best run of fixtures is a little scary. i would swap reece james for a villa or west ham defender.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Lamptey can come in whenever he needs to

              I'd be more concerned about doubling up with two defenders subject to rotation (Cancelo, James). I'm going with Cancelo too, I don't expect much rotation but it's not inconceivable that you find yourself with two at the back for a GW or two. I feel you need two nailed defender subs if you're choosing that pair, but maybe I'm too cautious.

          Cresswell or Targett? Have Coufal

            2 months, 14 days ago

            Targett surely?
            Cresswell 0.6 more expensive and you already have a West Ham defender.

            Targett. No need of doubling up on WHU defense

          Chilwell, Coufal, Targett
          Salah, Bruno(c), Ziyech, JRod, Grealish
          DCL, Kane

          How is this looking for gw9?

            Would you do Son and Reguilon to Bruno(c) and Targett for a hit?

              • 4 Years

              I would not take a hit.

              • 8 Years

              Nope.think Bruno will struggle

            DCL (C) is getting closer and closer to locked in

              it's funny, not even a consideration for me
              Prefer Salah or Grealish if I don't bring in United player

              1. GreennRed
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Bruno and Grealish VC for now but I'm gonna go with captain's poll probably. Haven't picked right captain yet even when I usually have him 🙁

                2 months, 14 days ago

                Mane could be the simplest and best pick

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 14 days ago

              Fulham have only conceded more than 1 goal once in the last 5 games... think there’s much better options this week

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Faced Wolves, Sheff Utd, Palace, West Ham and West Brom in those games...

            Need 0.2m to upgrade Son to KdB in GW 10. Best option? These would be for a hit.

            A. Ryan to Forster (McCarthy will be my only keeper till I WC)
            B. KWP to Kilman
            C. Salah to Mane

            1. abhirup780

              A

              A seems the least disruptive.

            3. THE KING CANTONA
              • 1 Year
              2 months, 14 days ago

              A. For GW10, you might need 0.3 or 0.4 for KDB upgrade.

              Who will get the most points from here on?
              A) DCL
              B) Ziyech
              C) Grealish

              1. THE KING CANTONA
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 14 days ago

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                Till end of season?

                There's no way one can say. Ziyech plays in the best team so probably him

                1. Samir16
                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    surely ziyech outscores over the long term but maybe next 8-9 week period could be grealish

                    1. WE GO FOR IT
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 5 Years
                      2 months, 14 days ago

                      no doubt. Grealish could outscore till end of season as well. Chelsea's goals and assists would be distributed whereas Grealish is central to everything Villa does.

                2. what\'s my name
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  C

                3. GreennRed
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 14 days ago

                  Grealish, top dog for an improved Villa. Xiyech looks very good but Chelsea have a few that'll impact his FPL returns. DCL a tight third for me because he can be prone to a famine after the feast.

              3. Tambling5
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                2 months, 14 days ago

                My team is
                McCarthy 4.0
                Robbo, James, Coufal, KWP, Konsa
                Salah, Son, Ziyech, Zaha, Soucek
                Kane,DCL, Watkins.
                Not used any chips and doing really well for me, just over 100,000 position.
                Was thinking of wildcarding after next round to get some Man City in, but instead for one hit over next two weeks could do:
                Kane/Son/Robbo to KDB(or Sterling)/Jesus/Chilwell. Would need tidying up after - Zaha/ James esp.
                So what do you think?
                Wildcard or triple transfer and save wildcard till GW16.
                Thanks

                1. Samir16
                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    I think i have a similar team and transfer plan. taking a hit as well to bring in city and holding wildcard

                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    I'd WC. Would let you tidy up James/Zaha and get Grealish in as well perhaps.

                    Also, I don't like the idea of losing both Son and Kane.

                      Thx. Will wait till after Spurs City and decide

                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    your defence is a benching head ache, I would just do Robbo to 4.5 and Son to Bruno Fernandes and look at a hit (or WC) to bring in City the week after

                    1. Tambling5
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      2 months, 14 days ago

                      Yep thanks. Happy to have the benching headache as late injuries, COVID, warm-up injuries, means I like a squad without any fodder this season. Son to Fernandes and downgrading Robbo a good plan, tho, which I will consider

                      1. Hotdogs for Tea

                  Can I get away with saving FT here to do a mini WC next week?

                  Martinez
                  Robbo Chilwell Konsa
                  Salah (C) Sterling Son Jrod
                  Dcl Maupay Bamford
                  Steer Anguissa Kilman Mitchell

                  1 FT 0.5 Itb

                  1. WE GO FOR IT
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 14 days ago

                    You probably could. But who would you be getting in with the mini WC?

                    1. King Kohli
                      • 8 Years
                      2 months, 14 days ago

                      Out : Son Maupay Robbo Konsa
                      In : Grealish Vardy Cancelo 5m defender

                      Have yet to zero in on a plan but it's between Vardy & Bruno for me

                      1. WE GO FOR IT
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 5 Years
                        2 months, 14 days ago

                        If you're not sure, I'd save. Otherwise, I'd move Maupay this week along with someone else.

                        1. King Kohli
                          • 8 Years
                          2 months, 14 days ago

                          Yes having 2 FT for next week gives me a lot of flexibility.
                          1. Could go 3-5-2 by moving Maupay to Brewster and reshaping midfield.
                          2. Can fit in any combination of Bruno/Kdb/Vardy/Ziyech/Grealish/Antonio depending on form and injuries
                          3. Can see how Spurs do in a big game Vs City ( Keeping Son could even be an option after all!)
