      Would prefer Dias or Cancelo over Walker

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is the Robbo injury bad? Saiss >> Cancelo possible?

      1. fylde2022
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I don't know. I heard that he'll be out for next GW.

        I'm 0.1m short of making that Cancelo for Saiss transfer, unfortunately

    3. Peter Ouch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Robbo will play
      No -4 for a city vs spurs

    Bottomed last page sorry.

    Liked my team heading into the IB but with a few injuries and my WC still intact, would you use it now? I have 1FT. Would like Bruno and KDB and a new defence for starters .

    McCarthy
    Chilwell*, Saiss*, Cresswell
    Salah*, Son, Ziyech, Rodríguez, Grealish
    Kane, DCL
    (Nyland, Mitchell*, Justin, Davis)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…

      I'd leave it till Friday - if you can put out XI then hold. Everyone else in same/worse boat.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Yeah that is true. A lot of injury hit teams.

    2. Shineonme

      I think its time to wc

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        Thanks. Mixed responses then

  3. lindeg
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Which -4 do you prefer? And would you do one of them?

    A: Foden -> Grealish -4

    B: Maupay -> DCL -4

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Prefer A (at least Maupay is - odd tantrum apart - nailed).

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      A

    3. Phlajo

  4. tim
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 10 days ago

    Taa->Cancelo
    Salah->Mane
    Son->Bruno

    -4

    Yes?

    Have Sterling, Kane, DCL as other big guns.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Fudge yeah

    2. Phlajo
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Not sure Son->Bruno is worth a -4... But if you cap him I guess it could be fine

    1. Amey

      KDB or Raz
      Dias or Cancelo

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      What is the point of putting any planning in this year?

    3. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Based on what’s happened to date I expect Joe to phone in sick, and Az to limp off after ‘Rough and the Smooth’.

    4. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Everyone has Salah.
      Loads have got Chilwell. Quite a lot still have TAA.
      Then there's the likes of Robertson, Ward-prowse, Wilson, Rashford, Coady and Sterling who are all still in plenty of teams.
      What advice to those who have 5 or more flagged? Treat every player on their individual circumstances? So many yellow flags - surely some will be back this or next week? Perhaps this is a good week to Free Hit?

      1. lindeg
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Don't have Salah.

        1. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Sold him already, have you?

    5. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Obviously the most pressing thing you guys need to cover is what to do about Salah - encapsulated within a chat about what we think about Pool options in general now their entire DF is possibly injured.

    6. Noah’s Ark
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Should we be thinking form over fixtures? A lot of people, including myself, are looking at shifting the Kane and Son double up to afford the likes of Bruno. Bit harsh on the spurs duo?

    7. ppv
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is Bale ruining Son as an fpl option?

    8. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Om to bench Salah if you have someone like Podence coming off the bench?

    9. Hotdogs for Tea
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      The bench? Is Covid a game changer ?

      I often hear ‘how often do we ever get to our third sub’ and for that reason it is normally a non playing fodder.

      However we do often get to our second playing sub but he is so rubbish we take a hit anyway and do not play them.

      So, should we
      a, have a bench of complete fodder (maybe just one starter as cheap as you can get) and accept we will need a -4 quite often, or
      b, actually have a decent bench so you are happy to allow subs no. 1 & 2 to play in lieu of players that you know are injured before the deadline, rather than taking hits

      1. Sharkytect
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        yeah I think this - the Covid season - needs a different squad to other seasons where your second sub just needs to be as cheap as possible and will make do with 2points, while your third is ideally even cheaper than possible (3.9mil or under)

    10. M Heaney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Joe why do you have sterling on your team? Thank you

      1. J0E
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Because he's an excellent player, capable of hauls and got great fixtures coming up.

        Surely the question is why not have him in a team? 😉

        1. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Injury would be a good reason. Think he'll be fine though

    11. Daniel - FH,BB,TC,WC left
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      City triple up, yes or no? KDB + Sterling + Cancelo/Dias. Anyone else worth considering? Jesus, Kun, Mahrez, Foden, Torres?

    12. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is this finally the season to admit that this is the game of the casual with all the top managers outside 100k and only casuals in top 10k 8 gws in

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        My rank is 3m ... does that class me as one of the best managers in the game

        1. villa_til_i_die
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Yes, this season it does!

    13. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Who is more important to keep if only one. Kane or Son?

      1. tisza
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        good question or even neither.

    14. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is it worth paying 5.5m for the likes of Dias that only really offer clean sheet potential?

      Is there a case for a West Ham defensive double up to save funds for midfield or attack?

      Is there a case for a power 5 of Salah, KDB, Bruno, Grealish and Ziyech when everyone is fit and firing?

      What mistakes have you made this season and what would you change going forward?

      Do you think top managers will be looking more at players with excellent injury records given that injuries have increased this season.

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        I prefer rotating 4.5's with more attacking potential and save 0.5

        Wouldn't double up on any team defensively at the moment.

        Yes. See Zøphar's template WC

        Taking a hit to get Robertson as an addittion to TAA. Then Allison got injured and I deided to wildcard the week after

        No.

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          My bad. Thought this was a seperate post and not questions to FFS, lol.

      2. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        My biggest mistakes this season are the two times that I have sold Son ... should I sell him a 3rd time

    15. Vazza
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Given the upcoming turn in fixtures, is it worth wildcarding now or should it be saved for the blank and double gameweeks?

      • Forever In Our Shadow
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        1 - How many City do we really need? Is there a case to stick to one and wait to see how they perform or go all out and triple up?

        2 - With so many games coming up, how much rotation do you really see happening? With the European teams all looking reasonably placed in their groups, will it be Europe they rotate in or will we it be horses for courses and rotation for “easier” PL fixtures? I’m thinking Pep roulette mainly but not exclusively.

      • KaBoZ: Kids,don't Drin…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Is it worth it to save the wildcard until Christmas ? What are the main advantages?
        My team is not that bad now I can do with just 1 FT, but ideally I'd use 4-5 transfers.

        Just for reference, that's my team:
        Mccarthy - Steer
        Chilwell - kilman - justin - feurgeson - Lewis
        Salah - Son - Grealish - Soucek - Anguissa(4.5 fodder)
        DCL - Kane - Werner
        And I'm currently set on at least Kane ---> Vardy

    16. Phlajo
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Who do you think will score the most in the next 3 GWs

      A: Richarlison
      B: DCL

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        The same one who was scoring all the points before

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          +1

      2. Your Man With The Hair
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        B

      3. Shineonme

        DLC

    17. King Henrik
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is it just me or is Jota being overlooked massively?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Seems pretty popular round here already and probably worth a squirt at the price.

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Whilst I can see the appeal - I actually think he's being mentioned TOO MUCH on here.

        I would never consider a guy who, when everybody is fit, is definitely not first choice in any position on the pitch.

        Short term, you might get some points from him, especially given Salah has covid now. But, medium term he's gunna do your head in and may even end up blocking bench points with his cameos.

        Big no for me unless he displaces Firmino in the side

        1. King Henrik
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Mate am talking about jota as a temporary replacement for salah!

          I dont wanna bring him home and mate with him lol

      3. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Wijnaldum scored a brace last night - almost had a hattrick ... only 5.3m

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

          His goal scoring record has always been good for Netherlands but he is most definitely not a viable FPL pick

        2. Long ago I drew a walrus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Pretty sure he plays further up the field for his country. He's always had the pedigree (remember his 4 goals against Norwich) but doesn't fulfil the same role for his club nowadays, and with Liverpool's current weakness being in defence I don't see that changing

    18. Warby84
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Martial + Grealish

      De Bruyne + Watkins

      This week only!

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Top one

      2. Amey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Tony Jack

        Easily

      3. FPL_Motty
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 10 days ago

        KDB + Grealish, surely affordable for both. KDB record against spurs: Played 10: 3 Goals 5 Assists.

    19. Your Man With The Hair
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Morning...

      A) Sterling & Warkins
      B) Ziyech & Vardy

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        B

        Warkins sounds like a character form Dickens or Pratchett

        1. Your Man With The Hair
          • 10 Years

          Ha! Definitely a villain!

        A.

        Those City and Villa fixtures are very good.

      4. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 10 days ago

        If it was KDB over Sterling I'd go for A.

      5. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        B) much better in my opinion.

        Obviously City have the fixtures to turn around their lackluster attacking performances. But I bloody well want to see it with my own eyes before I spend that much on Razza

      my faint hopes of fielding 11 players hinge on Roman Saiss starting against Southampton........I pray that his appearance against the Central African Republic has not gone unnoticed

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Coady under the weather isn't he?

      2. thegaffer82
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Actually a pretty decent chance this week with Coady situation

      3. Warby84
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Coady unlikely to start

    21. tibollom
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 10 days ago

      Is double UTD overkill? Want to get Bruno for Salah with my remaining FT.. or should I go KDB?

      1 FT and 1.4 ITB

      Ryan
      Lamptey Dallas Chilwell Robbo Ferguson
      Salah Ziyech Grealish Rash Soucek
      DCL Kane Brewster

      1. Peter Ouch
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Thinking the same

        Out salah in Bruno
        double for west brom
        Then out rash in KDB

        wont' captain salah in the next two so why not

            Hames?
            I love Bruno, but look at Utd's results at home this year.
            Like Peter says, if you end up with just Bruno and no St Marcus could be ok.

                  You never know what side will turn up, Martial all though didn’t score for France had 4 big chances, so surely goal is coming?!?

                  1. Fulchester's New Centr…

                    You'd think, now could be the time to get on him. Alternatively Ole decides to bench and play Cavani and/or "Quick and seems like a nice lad, but not really good enough" Dan James.
                    Who can say?

              2. NateDogsCats
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  For as bad as WB are they've improved defensively recently and have only conceded 4 in their last 4 (compared to 13 in their first 4), plus MU have been pretty poor at home. I don't normally like to place much emphasis on away / home differences certainly with no fans at stadiums but there seems to be a difference for MU between the two. They're also not great at breaking down sides with a low block

          In the same boat as you mate. I’m probably gonna have double united for the West Brom game.

          Then sell Rashford the week after

        3. FPL_Motty
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          If you have Rash already, surely KDB is better option.

        To get Grealish, where can I possibly downgrade?

        Martinez | Forster
        PvA Lamptey Taylor | Justin Lewis
        Mane KdB Bruno Soucek | Berge

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

          Vardy + Berge > Grealish + Bamford is the natural one.

          I'd start my draft with Grealish and then go from there.

        3. tomasjj
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Downgrade up front, if you want to keep your three premium midfielders.

          Rich to cheaper striker.
          Berge to Grealish.

          Almost picked that too well.
          Maybe Zouma over one of the double City def. Chilwell if fit?

          1. Fantasydreamer
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Yes I did consider a Chelsea defender instead, especially in case I wanted to go double city mid at some point - probably my last decision to decide on really

                • 2 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                I was thinking that but then can’t see where I would fit 2 man city mids/attackers with Grealish - think I will want Bruno and Salah when he is back as premium mids with KDB...

        2. Shineonme

          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I'm minded to keep if just one game.
          Trying no hits this year so being careful very with transfers.

        2. Do I Not Like Orange

          Will have to be out for me, my team is a trainwreck and my bench nonexistent after Chilwell injury.

        3. tomasjj
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          Keeping if it is just one game out.

      7. Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        So Chilwell added to my list of woes now. These internationals are an absolute menace, considering the necessary frequency of domestic fixtures atm. Apart from the qualification playoffs, they should have all been sacked off until the pandemic is done.

        Dr Hossam Hosny, who supervises Mo Salah’s Case just said that he will have a swab test on Thursday, and if it was negative he can travel back to England, but it would be better to have two swabs. And after 10 days of getting the virus, he can go back to training.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          So, just one Prem game out?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years

            IF he tests negative on Thursday. Otherwise it could very well be 2 games.

        Move Wilson or Maupay for Bamford?

        Moving Son to KDB, and next week will consider Kane to Vardy.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          I'd keep Wilson - if he is fit.

          1. tomasjj
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I would too, if I knew he was fit.

        Fighting WC button itch.

        If Salah, Chilwell don't show up I'll get Walker-Peters (wol) & Brewster (WHU) off the bench which isn't awful.

        But feels like this IB is insisting that I play the thing & just get the likes of Vardy, Cancelo, Sterling as well. Even Bruno F maybe.

        Dunno.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 10 days ago

          if you were going to do it next week anyway then ok, but look like ok subs and everybody in same boat.

          1. Shatner's Bassoon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            I was eyeing up the latest possible WC to take advantage of those blanks and doubles... obviously that's over Christmas though so not optimal really.

            I'll be on a -4 when I do Bissouma->Grealish. Possibly another -4 next week for City assets...

            Might be a Saturday morning panic! Yay!

            1. NateDogsCats
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Whatever you do, resist the urge to do a panic WC right before the deadline, could work out but there'd be a big chance you'd regret it. If you're going into Friday night (relatively) happy with your team then I'd say stick with it (apart from maybe changing around starting XI of course)

          2. Olson
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 10 days ago

            Probably not a popular opinion but I think this is generally not a great time to play a WC. So much short term unrest that anyone WCing is kind of stuck between picking a team that looks great short term but perhaps isn't really the team they would choose in a fortnight. GW10 looks way more appealing

            1. Shatner's Bassoon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Yeah I can see a lot of WCers scrambling to get Salah back for example in week 12, especially if they have gone for Fernandes instead.

              In my mind that could be funded by DCL to a Leeds forward for their fixture swing... but not easy.

              Chilwell is another who I would like long-term if he's fit but couldn't keep on WC.

              1. Olson
                • 6 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                Also hard to know how spurs will perform against the better quality, more expansive teams

                Could be an awful lot of managers wondering why they just transferred out one or both of the games highest scoring players

            You just do not leave 11.5 m on the bench. Bench one of your Everton players, you have more than enough coverage

            1. Puntillimon
              • 5 Years

                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  I do agree with you there to a point, last week I wanted to leave Robertson on the bench as I didn't really know what to expect from them but I saw lots of people saying to others that leaving a 7m defender on the bench is crazy so I ended up putting him in over Justin and regretted it. But that being said I just can't see why you'd bench KDB, are you thinking Spurs will do City? I think they could definitely beat them but I still wouldn't bench him if I had him

            2. Shineonme
              • 4 Years

              All of football agrees that there should be fewer games, but each body thinks it should be somebody else who takes their fingers out of the pie.

                Prestigious Carbao Cup should be scrapped.
                Only Manchester city will oppose that 😎

                  Lower league clubs will oppose scrapping Carabao Cup. They need the money

                  I personally think the Carabao cup is fine - PL clubs usually play their second string anyway, even against each other. Internationals are a killer though

            How’s everyone looking in terms of Injuries/Flags and FTs?

            Salah, Chilwell 1FT

            1. ElliotJHP
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Used the FT on Trent to Cancelo and have Salah, Mitchell & Wilson flagged with Burke & Foden dead to me.

              -4 is locked in for Friday, will decide if it requires a -8 or not.

            2. Shatner's Bassoon
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Salah + Chilwell (and Mitchell but that's not of consequence). Already jettisoned Trent with my free.

              As mentioned above, planned tfer is Bissouma to Grealish (-4). KWP and Brewster would cover Salah and Chilwell for one week but I'm staving off temptation to wildcard.

            Bruno already leading the captaincy poll. I voted for Grealish, who are you voting for?

                  which is odd considering he is the leading goalscorer playing fulham

                Mane is interesting shout

                  Salah was a big favourite before he was flagged, but Mane pretty much gets the same points as Salah does over a season, without pens. Yet he is being ignored.

                    He might be on penalties too, but I worry about the team with all those injuries. Jota might benefit from it

                      I feel Milner will play and take them if they get one.

                    Do you have Mane in your team?

                      Does it make a difference if he does?

                        I'm just curious if he is choosing Mane because he has him or if he feels Mane is the best choice this week.

                          Both. I've already got him and he was my vice to Salah (c) until the flag.
                          I'll be transferring out Salah, have 2 frees and can afford anyone so there's no bias.

              If towards end of the week its looking likely that Salah might miss 2 games then taking a -8 to move on for Mane rather then playing wildcard sensible? would get salah back on wildcard shortly. current team is below and already taken a -4!

              McCarthy
              Chilwell / Bellerin / Dallas
              Salah / Fernandes / Soucek / Ziyech
              Kane / Watkins / Vardy

              Button / Bissouma / Justin / Mitchell

                2 months, 10 days ago

                You don't take a - 8 for Mane in that case. You take a -4. But yeah I think it is worth it. Would personally go for KDB instead and captain Bruno 🙂

                1. ShaunGoater123

                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  yeah KDB is definitely tempting.

                  and yeah you are right, each transfer should be looked at in isolation so the salah > Mane /KDB is -4

                  cheers

              Guys, why price changes are not direcrly related to certain inputs, like, number of sales/purchases? It would be so simple mathematically.

              1. thegaffer82
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                It is kind of linked to sales/purchases. But, higher owned players have a higher threshold, whereas lower owned players have a smaller threshold.

                Then, I think that they keep some price manipulation wankery in there so they can manipulate certain players' price as and when they so choose (and just to keep everyone guessing)

                1. Lucky Z
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  I know that there is a linkage. But is very weird. And what is this manipulation for? Do they think it makes the game morr interesting or what?

                  1. thegaffer82
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 10 days ago

                    I can't answer that question.

                    I think they like to keep control and can force through or block the price changes of popular picks depending on what will be 'popular' with the masses perhaps?

                    1. Lucky Z
                      • 3 Years
                      2 months, 10 days ago

                      Probably.

                      But it is out of logic. They are "monopolist" in that case 🙂

            5. thegaffer82
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              I think it's literally about the fifth GW this season that I've thought to myself:

              "God, I wish I had a WC"

              Chilwell, Salah, Podence, Mitchell, TAA, Son, and probably even Justin and Brewster would be out too in a switch switch back to 3-4-3

              Oh well, I think it's a 4pter, change Salah & TAA and then leave it at that for this week

              1. FC Hakkebøf
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 10 days ago

                I want to switch to a 3-5-2. Are you playing four at the back?

                1. thegaffer82
                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  Nope, I'm a 3-5-2 but kind of feel I'm missing out with Wilson, Watkins & Bamford all scoring goals for fun (I do have a beautiful MF though)

              • 6 Years
              2 months, 10 days ago

              Probably no point thinking about it until Friday but:
              McCarthy
              Chilwell Cancelo Kilman
              Son Grealish Soucek Bissouma
              Kane Werner DCL
              (4.0 Salah* Shaw* Ferguson*)
              1.2ITB 0ITB

              Transferred early which I don’t fully regret (yet) but willing to take 1 hit max

              A) Salah -> Bruno (-4)
              B) Shaw -> Cresswell/ Coufal (Coufal allows Son -> KDB) (-4)
              C) No hits
              D) Wildcard

                after reading these comments I feel quite lucky just to have Mitchell and Salah stinking my team with flags!

                  2 months, 10 days ago

                  I'm the same except I've got TAA in there too.

                  However, with other players who aren't injured but are not likely to get any returns, it's a worrying situation (Podence, Brewster, Justin this week)

                  1. HVT
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 10 days ago

                    Podence to deliver to loyal owners!

                  Same here but there are still a lot of international games left so I'm expecting at least 2 more flags before the weekend.
