    Thoughts on this WC? Want Cancelo but low TV going against me, so plan in 2 GWs to do DCL & Lewis to Wilson/Bamford & Cancelo. Or just make the sacrifices to get him now?

    McCarthy, £4m
    Chilwell, Coufal, Justin, Targett, Lewis
    Salah, KDB, Bruno, Ziyech, Grealish
    DCL, Watkins, Brewster

      Nice midfield and defence but forwards may be a bit light.

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks. Yeah my only worry but think the value is in the mid priced forwards. Think the variation in forwards is less than the midfielders

        1. GreennRed
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Hope it does great for you. Didn't realise Ziyech price is so good.

            Cheers. Yeah had Werner this week but the savings on Ziyech swayed me.

      Really like it and a good plan with the future transfers too.

        2 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks Gregor. DCL's next 2 is good enough reason to hold off on Cancelo I think.

        True but hoping moving on this combination early will help to move up the ranks. A lot will be transitioning to a combination of this over the coming weeks.

      Making wc with two planned changes, that is not the point with wc is it?

      1. Big Ronnie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        The plan with a WC is to maximise points in future game weeks, that could involve planning future transfers

  2. Dark Side Of The Loon!

    2 months, 11 days ago

    Cannot decide who to captain:

    Martinez
    James Lamptey Coufal
    Salah Sterling Son Ziyech
    Martial DCL Bamford

    Steere Podence Dallas Mitchell

    1. JJeyy
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      salah

  3. Zladan
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Thoughts on WC draft:

    Martinez
    Chilwell Lamptey Justin
    Salah Bruno Ziyech Hames Grealish
    DCL Watkins

    4.0 Brewster Phillips Mitchell

    £4.4m itb for Hames to KDB next week

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Why not get De Bruyne for GW9?

      1. Zladan
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Fancy Hames v Fulham over KDB v Spurs.

    2. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Good. Similar to mine above

  4. JJeyy
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    A) Watkins, Son

    B) Kane, Zaha

    Best option?

    1. Tshelby
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A

    2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B

    3. Big Ronnie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Tough. I'd say B but it is also more expensive so in A what do you do with the excess £.

    4. Pep bites Kun
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B

    5. Davros
      • 11 Years

      B due to (c) option

  5. GreennRed

    Has Southgate named his team for tonight?

    1. fr3d
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yes, he wants to let Ireland know his XI as early as possible

      1. Pep bites Kun
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Very decent of him. I always thought he was a sporting chap regardless of what his own country say about him 😉

      2. GreennRed

        That will be a huge advantage for us.

    Hi guys,

    Long-time lurker, first-time poster.

    Disastrous start followed by a great four weeks means I'm around 700k OR but not that prepared for fixture swing. What should be my priorities?

    Patricio*
    Chilwell, Coufal, Coady* (Dallas)
    Salah, Ziyech, Son, Foden*, Podence*
    Kane, Werner (Brewster)

    * = I'm thinking of moving on. 1m ITB, so first thought was bank the FT, then GW10 Patricio & Coady > Ederson & Cancelo/Dias.

    But a) too much money in defence? b) Feels like Bruno/KDB should be in my thoughts somehow.

    Some caveats: 1) not sure why everyone thinks Son and Kane need to go when Son has hauled in more even games against teams who press high and leave space in behind and blanked against West Brom, Newcastle, and Everton at home. Aren't these fixtures good for Son? 2) Got major irrational love for Timo so don't want to sell. 3) Birmingham fan so doing everything I can to avoid the Villa value...

    Thanks all!

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      foden to greilish looks your best move I think, wolves can wait another week, saints without ings isn't the worst fixture for them

      1. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I agree, that’s a clear upgrade and you have just enough ITB

  7. jamichael
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Vardy or Jesus? Thx

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Vardy

    2. mg12
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Vardy. LC fixtures weeks 10-12 look like double-digit hauls.

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Nice fixtures but Vardy still hasn't got the points at home this season

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Only played the 3 matches tho and was unlucky last match not to haul

            1. HashAttack
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              True - but would have liked to see him get some points from open play, can't rely on penalties every week

      • Tcheco
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Vardy

    3. cheeky moses
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Got a midfield of Salah, Son, Rash and Grealish.
      Looking to move Son out for this GW.
      Who would you go for?
      A) Bruno
      B) Ziyech
      C) Hamez

      B or C would allow me to straight swap Rash to KDB in GW 10.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Straight Son > KdB next week. Wait or build funds now.

      2. Olson
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Depends how much you enjoy gambling. B and C are players with relatively small performance sample sizes with a view to moving to a player with below par individual and team form. A is moving to a player averaging 8ppgame for almost a year

      3. Corgzzzz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        C, I think Hamez going under the radar with those next three fixtures

      4. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Tempted to get Hamez myself - Haven't got any Everton players, not got any ITB to upgrade to Bruno (and have Rashford) and already have 3 Chelsea (Zouma, Chillwell and Werner)

        Just hoping Hamez drops in price before Son does - really don't want to buy a player who is already > -95%

    4. jb1985
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Have Kane:

      A) Son & Brewster > Soucek & Jesus
      B) Son & Brewster > Ziyech & Bamford

      1. mg12
          2 months, 11 days ago

          B: Ziyech and Bamford seem more consistent, regardless of the matchup.

          I'd lose my patience with Soucek and Jesus.

        Good afternoon, Looking to get Coufal/Creswell in for either.

        KWP
        or
        Dallas.

        your help appreciated.

          Lose Dallas - more faith in Southampton's ability to keep clean sheets than Leeds'

              Ps. def stretch to Cresswell if you can

        2. NateDogsCats
            2 months, 11 days ago

            I'd say Dallas, he's a good threat going forwards but Leeds have conceded a lot of goals and look like they could do it against most teams. I think Southampton are looking better lately at both ends of the pitch and KWP has been playing well.

          • 4 Years

          Early thoughts as it will determine this GW's moves, GW 10 captain:

          A) Salah (bha)
          B) KDB (BUR)

          1. NateDogsCats
              2 months, 11 days ago

              Salah easily, Brighton play so open which should suit pool. That being said Burnley are generally pretty poor against City but they still don't look right just yet.

            Would you captain Salah or Bruno?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              Bruno

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              Salah - Bruno not so good at home and West Brom defence been stronger of late.

            3. colby_
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              I have both and am captaining Bruno. There's definitely a reasonable argument for Salah, though.

            4. Olson
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              Very tough one. The only thing really to pick between them is Bruno has a 1 year history, Salah several. But they are both moreorless as consistent as one another. I guess it comes down to 2 things, do you believe there is anything in the Bruno home form thing, and do you want to cap the one with the highest eo or the differencial

              1. HashAttack
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 11 days ago

                13 points total in 4 home fixtures so far this season - Got 6 points vs Spurs due to penalty
                Last season he was much the same, typically only scoring 2 or 3 points at home

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              Bruno

            Son and Kane -> Werner and Bruno (-4)

            Thoughts?

            1. Seanigula
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 11 days ago

              I don’t know that I’d lose both of them...I’d rather lose Son then Kane

                • 3 Years

                Okay, but what do you think about the move?

            The likes of Rhys Willams, Neco and Philips to get some game time and maybe cement a place?

            I say cement but until the number one in that position returns which looks like a potentially a while for some.

              I guess it shouldn"'t take long for Fabinho to be back, he'll hold the center with Matip.
              But who'll replace TAA on the right ?

          6. Mané Fuchs Given
              2 months, 11 days ago

              On wildcard, got a few things to figure out:

              Martinez, Martin
              Chilwell, Cancelo, Cresswell, Justin, Phillips
              Salah, Grealish, Bruno, Ziyech, Riedewald
              Werner, Bamford, DCL

              Leaves me with 0.0 ITB as it stands.

              Thoughts:

              Salah - currently have Mane who I got as a differential as everyone else in my mini-league has Salah, but it's not really worked out and thinking with Salah on pens it's just too dangerous not to have him?

              Werner - had him from the start and he is starting to come good, but are there better options, e.g. Vardy, but would need to shift things around a bit to bring him in?

              KDB - everyone seems to be bringing him in but I've got a feeling it's going to be a few weeks before he starts hauling, if then given how Man City are playing so far. Obviously changes could be made to bring him in for GW10 onwards if he does start firing, or should I take the gamble now?

              Martin, Phillips - any better options at that price point?

              Thanks!

                Really like it - would prefer watkins over Bamford but that is personal preference. Good luck

                    Thanks!

                    One other thing I meant to mention - I've taken out Rodriguez which I've a feeling might come back to bite me. Another option would be:

                    Martinez, Martin
                    Chilwell, Cancelo, Cresswell, Justin, Phillips
                    Salah, Grealish, Bruno, Ziyech, Hamez
                    Werner, Bamford, Brewster

                    On current form I think DCL outscores Hamez but it's probably a close call. Start of the season Hamez looked amazing.

                      2 months, 11 days ago

                      Would probably go DCL over Rodriguez in that case

                  Looks good! I prefer Bellerin and Coufal over Cresswell and Justin, but do what feels right to you.

                  1. Mané Fuchs Given
                      2 months, 11 days ago

                      Yeah it's not a bad option. I'm not 100% on Justin as his place isn't secure, but good fixtures from GW10-GW13 and he should be playing for most of them. Might swap Cresswell for Coufal though and save the cash.

                    Wish I had a WC atm and Martinez, Cancelo, Bamford, Bruno, DCL would all be in my thoughts, so looks good.

                    Agreed on Salah - handball pens back with a vengeance at the weekend so don't see a reason to favour Mane right now.

                    Same position as you with Werner, had him from day 1, Chelsea now clicking and he seems to be on pens, so a better option than ever, you'd think. Could be a sunk-cost fallacy thing but I'll be sticking, though I'm sure you could make a case for Vardy at 0.7 more - you could raise most of that cash by doing Cresswell>Coufal if you were tempted, and Phillips to 3.9 (I'm assuming Matip-Fabinho the pairing but who knows!)

                    1. Mané Fuchs Given
                        2 months, 11 days ago

                        Think I'll stick with Werner for now too, as you say could prove to be a mistake but he also looks like he could go on a good run, and if I miss that not I'll be gutted. Also if Ziyech turns out to be as good as he's looked so far then Werner can surely benefit from his deliveries. Can always bring Vardy in a couple of weeks down the line if it doesn't work out, although would probably need to be for a hit.

                          2 months, 11 days ago

                          Yeah agreed, I'm on Ziyech too and he can only be good news for Werner, assist already vs. Burnley and should have been another against Sheff. Good luck!

                      McCarthy - Forster
                      Chilwell - Justin - Lamptey - Targett - Mitchell

                          Wolves fixtures bad after Saints but is it worth using the 0.2 on Kilman from Mitchell? Seems to be nailed now so you could bench him most of the time and just use when fixture okay (gws 9, 12, 14, 17, 19 look decent), Mitchell won't be playing anyway? Unless you are keeping funds for future options...

                        Mitchell is dead now, PVA back, so maybe try n squeeze him up to kilman?

                          Kilman was rubbish in Wolves last bad match. Think he’ll be benched for Saiss

                            Because he conceded a pen that shouldn't have been given?

                      Need some new eyes on my WC team, any thoughts?

                      Leno (McCarthy)
                      Coufal, Lamptey, Targett (Kilman, J. Lewis)
                      Zaha, Grealish, Bruno, KDB, Mane
                      Watkins, DCL (C. Wilson*)

                      I'm liking it on paper but am worried about no Chelsea & being too light at the back?

                        • 6 Years
                        2 months, 11 days ago

                        Nice players but thinking more generally about probability and structure, what do you think is likely to happen in time, perhaps very little, to a team where all the money is moved from front and back to center

                        It's a big shot. And if it goes wrong (it usually does) you are galloping up diarrhoea drive without a paddle

                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 11 days ago

                        Looks good. Drop Leno to a 4m keeper and Wilson/Watkins to Brewster for funds to upgrade defence.

                        • 3 Years

                        Nice team but I’d want Vardy in there somehow

                        Also, would just get 1 playing GK (Martinez or McCarthy)

                      Captain Bruno or Grealish?

                        Bruno over Grealish for sure.

                        I'll be choosing between Salah and Bruno, and leaning towards Salah as generally more reliable, EO would be higher and feel like West Brom might not make it easy for them

                      Is it true Fofana has a bit of a knee problem? Be interested if so he’s been really good for them and might sway me to cap salah instead of Bruno

                      McCarthy - Forster
                      Chilwell - Justin - Lamptey - Targett - Mitchell
                      Salah - KDB - Fernandes - Grealish - Stephens
                      Werner - DCL - Watkins

                      0.2 itb.

                        Justin to Kilman to allow Werner to Vardy imo

                          Justin to kilman would spare me 0.3
                          I bought Werner at 9.3
                          With the 0.2 itb, would still be 0.3 short unfortunately

                          Wolves fixtures look terrible I don't think they will get many clean sheets.

                        Good balance, like it, but would like to see enough money available to upgrade to Vardy. Werner is a slightly awks price point

                          Yeah, I feel his coming into his own now, and penalties is a big bonus. Got him in at 9.3 too, just can’t really find the funds for Vardy

                            Fair enough. Just always feels very uncomfortable when you own a premium (ish) striker but because they're at the bottom end of the bracket they come with none of the interchangability of a mid/top end striker.

                              Yeah, tough decision, hopefully his form stays consistent

                        I am a Coufal fan, so I prefer him to Justin or Targett. But I like this team a lot otherwise!

                        That'll cheer you up. Put a few quid on England to win by 3 or more. I'd be amazed and ecstatic if we beat you but even surprised if we score tonight.

                              Read this a few months back about an Irish pub on the Everest trail.

                              https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-53675741

                              Wonder if they even have Guinness. I once spent Paddy's day in an Irish bar in Ushuaia and they didn't have Guinness but instead were putting green dye in local Argentine lager.

                                Good story. They have Guinness, seemingly coming in from Singapore. They've had a few ups & downs - hope it works out for them. Roll on Paddy's day Mar 17th - green pints for health & prosperity and a covid injection to boot 😉

                          Wow B seems to more like a gamble with Lamptey hoping to score or assist.

                            I don't trust City defence.

                        Next week I will have all 4 (Saiss to Cancelo), but probably B since Chilwell looks like the new Alonso.

                      Liverpool have been offered Daryl Janmaat as short-term defensive cover and are considering bringing him on board. The 31-year-old, who normally plays as a right-back, can also play centrally and offers attractive options for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. #awlfc

                      Ummmm.... that's a name I thought I would never hear again. 2020 is a strange year.

                          Janmaat is a fullback.

                      Other players I have considered are Coufal, Walker Peters, Soucek, Werner, Martinez (GK).

                        How many ft

                        If 2 then no could do Kane to Watkins and podence to ziyech or James and it’s looking ok

                          Nothing wrong with Bissouma or Justin so that’s become TAA and Podence to anyone without requiring a WC.

                        I don't share the whole anti-Son and Kane thing as Son in particular has hauled in certain types of games and I can see him getting space against both City and Arsenal - so for me your front 6 looks fine.

                        I'd only be looking to sort the defence if I were you, and there are lots of good options if you sell Trent and Mitchell - Cancelo, Dias, Coufal, Cresswell, Chilwell, Konsa, Mings?

                          Nice view. Actually I also like front 6 but dont know for how long I should keep faith in Sterling since City is awful atm. Trent has to go yes so will think about it. Cheers.

                            I worry about not having attacking City players from GW10 onwards as their run is so nice. I guess you could always do Sterling>KDB that week?

                              True and ideally I want to keep Sterling but Bruno keeps firing so maybe temporary switch and then back for the run but with KdB. Also would love to have Vardy again but thats just too much atm.
