    Mccarthy
    Targett, Coufal, Cancelo, Zouma
    Kdb, Bruno, Grealish, Zaha
    Dcl, Antonio

    Any changes?

    1. SHOWSTOPPERRR
      • 3 Years

      Antonio fit?

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

      looks good, ideally i'd want Ziyech over Zaha but cant see where you can shave off thier

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Yeh I wanted Ziyech over Zaha aswell lol. not sure if Antonio will be fit but there's a chance he could be, I'll just keep monitoring the news.

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

          i like the Antonio pick, if not fit he can just become watkins. You could chance Jota over Zaha

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

      Maccarth sdould be martinez
      Salah should ziyech
      Antonio should be vardy

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        0.2 short....

        1. caldracula
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          Just keep McCarthy then and do the other moves?

          1. liverpool01
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            Yeh will do, can get Salah back gw 12 against Fulham

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

      Good looking team to me. I'm with you, Salah + KDB + Bruno, is the way forward. I don't rate Zaha as a pick, and fixtures dont last, if you can't afford Ziyech then I would suggest swapping to have a 3rd budget forward, Bamford a better pick than Zaha. Watkins a better pick than Zaha. Like the Antonio pick, barring injury news

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

      Sell Antonio asap. Antonio owner here

    6. Tired and weary
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Would find a way of doing Zaha > Ziyech

      1. liverpool01
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 10 days ago

        Thanks guys

  2. Tonyawesome69
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    I'm not sure if I'm being short sighted but I only see Bruno as a good option for GW9. Beyond that GW I don't see the appeal especially with Utd being inconsistent. Can someone provide some arguments to bring in Bruno as a long term option.

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

      The next two fixtures are pretty good especially considering Bruno's good away form (I really hate H/A stats but Bruno's is quite a large sample size by now so maybe there is some truth...) Southampton then West Ham is not bad at all.

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

      he has consistently averaged about 8ppg give or take a point for almost a calendar year, regardless of United's form. He has several routes to points. He is the cheapest premium option

      What more do u need to know. He is the very definition of set and forget and anyone who has owned him since the start has owned a very high scoring player who they never even have to think about.

    3. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I actually prefer him for long term as compared to short.

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

        This. See so many people talking about 'getting him in' for certain game weeks.

        First name on the team sheet alongside Salah.

    4. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I can afford 2 from Salah, KDB & Bruno at any one time.

      Ideally, if the other mid and low priced options are doing okay, why not just jump between them?

      Can swap around and maximize their fixtures and form, captaining whoever looks best that week

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

        I started the season with Bruno on my bench then got rid on wc gw-3 , massive mistake which cost me loads should have stuck the plan, he’s a great option

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

        No reason that in an ideal world you shouldn't, but right now between the usual unreliable form and non fixtureproof nature of cheaper players, injuries and now COVID, luxury transfers seem something of a dream

        I bought Bruno early after he joined united and from memory i don't think I've ever had to transfer him out.

        Pretty ace that given the current climate

    5. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Came in last season and averaged the highest Pts Per Game, this season is 4th highest PPG. he's averaged this over 21 games now. To me, he's proven now he is not a flash in the pan, he is consistently Utds best player, and that is going to continue for the rest of the season.

      I don't care who he's playing next, is his form better away from home (he didn't have bad Home form last season), it's a mistake to always look at things in a fish bowl, look at the bigger picture with players. Bruno is a set and forget option, along with Salah, and KDB, in my opinion. Proven to get 200+pts in a season (Bruno will this year easily)

    6. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      He’s actually a good player and equal points-per-million to Salah.

      He is not as regular in returns as Salah. MU will horrify you. Penalties and lucky goals are not as fun as Salah at his best.

      Don’t watch the games, just enjoy the returns is how to own Bruno.

      Plus you get almost 2M to put elsewhere

      1. El Presidente
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Like Salah has never had penalties and lucky goals.... please.

        1. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          To each his own, dude. For me, MU is horror football and unwatchable.

          I don't blame Bruno, there are 10 other players on the field. Hilariously, MU actually paid more for Fred than for Bruno and more than Liverpool paid for Salah.

          Salah has some luck, that's true. Shoots Pens too.

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

      A player:
      - who provides returns in an inconsistent team (imagine if the team starts performing well)
      - Can score goals yet isn't selfish to provide assists.
      - On penalties on a team that wins a lot of penalties.
      - Has a great record in epl

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

    thinking of this hit to allow me to bench mo and field 11, Saiss and Brewster to Coufal/Target and Antonio/Watkins -4?

    Look ok?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Nice moves with the West Ham boys

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

        cheers, would you go double west ham?

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 11 days ago

          If Antonio is fit yeah

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

    Guys salah bought at 12.0m so can I afford a drop?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    2. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      If you bought at 12.0, you can sell now at 12.2

      If he dropped to 12.3, your selling price would be 12.1 therefore you lose 0.1 if you let him drop.

      I think that’s how it works.

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

      He is 12.4 now so you can sell him at 12.2.
      If he drops you can sell him at 12.1 and if you want him back he will be 12.3 (If not dropping again).

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

      To me, its not about the lost money on Salah, its that if he's back after 1 GW, and you get him back in, you're wasting 2 free transfers to have somebody else for a 1 week punt. Total waste

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

      If dropping salah, drop him for 3-4 gws otherwise waste of transfer.
      Price wise you'll get 12.2 now and he will likely drop to that in a couple gws

  5. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Who’s the best 5.1m defender to fit in here;

    Chillwell* Cresswell Justin Mitchell

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

      Villa guy or even Bellerin i dont mind, if you are happy to think that villa result was a one off

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        What about Lamptey? He was my initial thought

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

          I like him as a player and decent pick, I just cant figure Brighton out and would tend to opt for a team where i can stand a better chance of predicting a clean

    2. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      James is obviously still a risk, but could be high reward - Is involved in a lot of what Chelsea do going forward.

      Coufal and save? Double WH defence is an interesting prospect though!

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

    Martinez
    Robbo, Chilly, KWP
    Salah, Son, Ziyech, Grealish
    Kane, DCL, Maupay

    (Steer, Dallas, 4.5m, 3.9m)
    2 ft, 0.3m in the bank.

    A) Steer + Maupay to 4m + Watkins
    B) Maupay to Antonio, Robertson to anyone
    C) Maupay to Antonio, Son to 9.9m
    D) Son to Bruno, Robertson to Dias/Cresswell
    E) Son to Bruno, Maupay to Antonio, Robertson to Dias/Cresswell (-4)

    Liking the look of D or E atm, thoughts?

    1. ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I also like D

  7. Blush Response
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Why did they price Ashley Westwood at 5.5. I wish they'd give more options at the 4.5 midfielder slot who were viable.

  8. ElliotJHP
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Trent -> Cancelo already done. Got 4.4 Mil ITB. Have Foden, Burke, Wilson, Salah, and Mitchell so in a bit of a sticky situation as I imagine a lot of others are.

    If Wilson is confirmed out, sensible moves?

    GW10 - Burke -> Ziyech (-4)

    GW11 - Foden & Son -> Soucek/Riedewarld & KdB (-4)

  9. pablo discobar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Fixture congestion is mad in December. So many games. I did want Cancelo but with Zinchenko and Mendy fit I think he's a risk. Is Maguire the safer pick as he's captain?

    United have the best defensive stats from the last 4 gws despite facing Arsenal, Everton, and Chelsea - even beating Manchester City defensively (xGC).

    Over the next 5 United face WBA, sou, whu, MCI and shu. 

    Have to think Maguire is safer from rotation than most?

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Maguire is safer than Cancelo... but I’d still rather get Cancelo.

      Just have to take the odd rest on the chin. But he’s looked really good this season, so he must be ‘first choice’

    2. DannyDrinkVodka
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 11 days ago

      I would get Cancelo, but make sure that you have a playing bench. The great news about Pep Roulette is that Cancelo will be less likely to make cameo appearances than somebody like Foden.....

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

      Yeah he should be safe, centre backs should see much less rotation especially when the cupboards are bare like United

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

        Thanks 🙂

    4. HashAttack
      • 3 Years

      I was looking at Telles ... if he can stop catching Covid

    5. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Southampton, West Ham and City will score imo.

  10. Russell
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 11 days ago

    Is this new? :

    I transferred out Ziyech on wildcard (value 8.1). Confirmed and done a few days ago.

    He's now worth 8.2

    If I bring him back in I can get him at 8.1 still.

    Is that a new feature for wildcards? Normally I always thought once sold that was it for prices.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Im afraid not.

    2. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Nope - you will sell for 8.1 but will buy at 8.2

      Your selling price will not rise until he hits 8.3

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

      I would expect him to cost you 8.2 - his current price ... are you sure you can still buy him at 8.1?

      What about players going down ... e.g. if you sell Salah and then he drops to 12.3, would you still need to pay 12.4 to buy him back .... don't make sense!

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

      You can only even buy a player at their current price.

  11. wulfranian
    • 4 Years

    What are the news on Salah?He will be out for Leicester/Brighton?

    1. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Extremely doubtful he plays v Leic.

      But providing he doesn’t develop symptoms, I’d be surprised if he was out longer than that

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

      test on Thursday apparently

    3. wulfranian

      Brighton is a maybe to probably miss

      Kai Havertz has missed multiple weeks without symptoms

    The Football Association of Ireland can confirm Matt Doherty and James McClean have tested positive for COVID-19

      International break is FOOLISH in pandemic

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

        Yeah what is it with all these managers and players hugging, high fiving, rubbing each other's heads etc. I know the game itself is a contact sport, but why aren't they bring stopped from all the unnecessary contact?

  13. lindeg
    • 2 Years

    Do we hate Foden?

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      had him for 2 gameweeks and played in total 10 min, sold and forgotten

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

        Thats the risk right? Think hes decent value for his price.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years

          not worth it with so many good midfielder options

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

          I've had for 6 weeks since my wildcard. He looked a good prospect when I bought him as he was starting games due to city injuries. Increasingly looking like he will be benched more often than not. I'm looking at upgrading to bruno and then downgrading kane to a 6m striker. Feels like better value.

          1. Boly Would
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 11 days ago

            I'm looking at similar in the next couple of weeks - Kane to Watkins and Foden to KDB.

  14. GOATMEAT
    • 1 Year

    Possibly injured Sterling to... (for -4 points)

    A) KdB
    B) Mané
    C) Keep him?

    1. lindeg

      Def keep, hes fine

      Wouldnt take the risk, and go KDB, he will be rested this midweek

    Team atm
    Martinez Steer
    Chilwell* Zouma Saiss Lamptey Mitchell*
    Salah* Sterling* Ziyech Grealish Podence
    Kane DCL Brewter
    No ft. Chilwell and Sterling will probably be fine
    Plan: Now: Salah to KDB for a hit (bench very weak so cant risk playing Brewster for very likely 2 pointer)
    GW10: Saiss to Cancelo
    GW11: Maybe save
    GW12: Sterling to Salah
    How does that plan sounds?

      your plan will probably be in pieces by the time you finish reading this sentence

        Yes, actually it is, since I read here below that Salah could be fine, will be tested again Thursday and might be able to play if negative...well its just wait until close to deadline anyway.

      With this amount of injuries and covid cases added with normal flu cases snd food poisonings and police arrests etc everyone should forget long term planned transfers.

    Is anybody feeling particularly smug with their team as these bombs are taking out entire battalions of highly-owned players?

    1. The Train Driver
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Only Salah, Mitchell and possibly Rashford for me (so far) have 2 FT. Probably keeping muy sh*t defence.

    B.) Grealish + 4.5

      Yes. But I find those news a bit strange. First he had no symptoms, then mild symptoms. And now it is no symptoms at all...

      1. caldracula
        • 4 Years

        Why would that be strange? Sounds pretty normal to me.

      Imagine the FFS melt down if he does play and whoever sellers have replaced him with does not play

      Are LEI going to be without Schmeichel - taken off with a head injury last night

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years

        the more likely outcome is just that mane and/or KdB blank given their very tough fixtures and shipping salah was a waste of time, transfers and money

      Thats just rubbish! Thats the Egyptians playing games with Liverpool to justify a trip back to the UK! I hope the UK authorities will be on top of this.

        As head of the UK borders and a Salah owner, I can confirm he will be exempt and 100% ready and rested for this weekend.

    International football happening right now is a farce.

    No point worrying about FPL at the moment. I just hope the players make it through this ridiculous season in one piece. Going to put players I like in my team and that's about it.

    Werner has now scored 7 goals in his last 5 games, yet people are still sleeping on him here ...

    1. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Got him in last week. He could have had a hatrick. Most people picking Ziyech instead.

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

        I got both and I’m feeling good about it.

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

      Think most people aren't struggling for striking options. Kane has been fire, Vardy don't well, cheap options scoring. Don't think people are sleeping so much as there has been no reason to move to him. 7, 7, 2 since his haul isn't really going to force any hands

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

      Only 3 FWD slots .. currently have Werner, Kane and Bamford ... but no Everton for their visit to Fulham and then no Vardy for their Fulham match - just wish we had more FWD slots

      Nice brace from him last night

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

      Think he's a good option.. but what puts me off is Chelsea are still playing him LW. While Pulisic is out, they dont have anyone better to take over LW, and Pulisic is constantly injured..

      When Werner starts playing CF every week and the fixtures change I will be definitely take notice.

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

        Werner always drifts left, regardless of position on paper. You might aswell call chelseas recent 4-3-3, a 4-3-1-2, with Werner and Tammy up front, and Ziyech in behind.

        Much like how Werner played in a two man striker formation with Schick or Poulsen last season at Leipzig - a season in which he scored 28.

          I have said this since he came to the league, but people just refuse to look at anything other than team sheets

    Best City defender option between
    A Dias
    B Cancelo

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

      Dias looks nailed, cancelo could be rotated with zinc and mendy

    2. Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      A

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      B - would expect Cancelo to score more in three starts than Dias in four

      1. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        I find it surprising that more people don't subscribe to this school of thought. Cancelo has vastly superior attacking threat and baseline bonus so in the event of a clean sheet, Dias gets 6 and Cancelo gets 7 or 8, in addition to any goals or assists. A single goal, just the one, is enough to cover a blank against a Dias CS. I feel people just don't like seeing blanks and would rather have 6,6,6 than 6, 12, 1 even though the latter is actually more points

    4. BenDavies
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Cancelo has the ceiling for most points, but Dias is more nailed. For the next 3 I'd go Cancelo but long term Dias.

  22. martyhan

    On wc, which is better?

    A. Martinez, chilwell, Taylor
    Or
    B. Mendy, cancelo, targett

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

      A

    2. Must.Go.Faster.
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A for me

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

      On a WC.
      Which option would you go for?

      Martinez | Forster
      PvA Lamptey Taylor | Justin Lewis
      Mane KdB Bruno X | Berge
      Vardy Richarlison X

      A) Grealish + Brewster
      B) Soucek + Watkins

      1. suddenorgan
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        probably B, Soucek is a much better choice than the Sheff Utd options

      2. DK_13
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        A. Got berge who will play more than Brewster I guess. If not sell berge and get souchek

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

      So as a product of missing the last deadline I still have Pulisic (was going to get rid for Ziyech, oops), any chance he makes the next game?

      Presuming he's out do I...
      (a) move him to Bruno before he goes up again (exact cash)
      (b) do the original Ziyech move (enabling Son -> KDB for free)

      1. suddenorgan
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        *Son -> KDB for free next week

      2. Boly Would
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        B

    5. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 11 days ago

      Who do you prefer out of Soucek and Armstrong? Quite close in the stats with Armstrong more likely to assist and Soucek to score.

      1. PompeyUpNorth!
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 11 days ago

        Soucek 100%

        1. hustler7

      Not looking good for this week, salah out and Mitchell, chilwell, sterling may not play either. 1FT... and Burke and dunne on the bench 🙂

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

        and now brewster has returned with an injury

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

          Sakes. Down to 9/15 fit players... so far

    7. JURGENAUT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 11 days ago

      So my dilemma is Salah, Chilwell & potentially Saiss. I have 1FT.

      Provisional plan (which can obviously change due to more internationals and news as it arrives):
      - Bench Salah & Chilwell, remove (Saiss & Mitchell) for (Targett & Coufal) for -4.

      Would look like this:

      McCarthy
      Coufal - Justin - Lamptey - Targett
      Son - Grealish - Zaha
      Kane - Werner (C) - DCL (VC)

      B: Forster - Salah - Chilwell - Stephens

      Decent provisional team to put out for GW9 to get it over and done with?

      I will wait till Friday night/Saturday morning to make as informed decisions as possible.

      Cheers all 🙂

          A...but if Salah is out, have a 1 week punt on someone like Rashford, if fit or Mane etc, then get him back next week. That’s my plan anyhow.. 12.4 too much to sit on bench and I think he’ll drop at least .1 soon, hopefully .2 by next week to get back
