    Do we have any idea if Salah will miss the Brighton game?

    I'm a bit confused by the protocol details but planning to sell if he misses 2 games and keep if he misses 1...

    1. GreennRed
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      No one seems to know and nobody knows how healthy he'll be for GW10.

    2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      unclear at the moment

    3. Paul Psychic Octopus
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      He will miss the Brighton game. Returned a positive test again in Wednesday and has to self-isolate in his home country for 10 days. So no chance he plays against Brighton, hence why people are selling.

      1. Ruth_NZ
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not sure if I should care but that's misinformation.

        "If your test result is positive, you must continue to self-isolate for 10 days from when your symptoms started". Salah had mild symptoms at the time of his first test. The 10 days starts then. The 2nd test is essentially irrelevant apart from this:

        "If you have a negative test result, you can stop isolating as long as you are well".

        Salah took the 2nd in the hope he could come home immediately. That's what he is waiting for because as soon as he gets a negative test he will be able to.

        If he is fit and well by next midweek he should be able to play against Brighton as long as the UK Govt doesn't rescind his Egypt travel exemption.

        1. Paul Psychic Octopus
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I stand corrected then. Although at least 5 national media reporting he will miss 3 games. He has to self-isolate in Egypt for 10 days from the first positive, plus flying time and training. He has to test negative after that 10 days is up. Not sure if partying at his brother's wedding and not wearing a mask will be contributing factors in the FA's eyes. Idiotic behaviour.

          1. Ruth_NZ
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            When did newspapers bother with accuracy. 😉

            The FA will have nothing to do with it. When he gets a negative test he can come home and resume his normal activity. The only thing that could stop that would be the UK Govt. rescinding his travel exemption and applying an automatic 14-day quarantine on his return, something I doubt they would want to do.

      2. MESSINHO
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        His isolation timer did not reset. If he tests negative by monday (or tuesday?), he can travel to England.

    Coufal or Masuaku?

        solid. I'd be tempted by vardy over kane.

        1. Shatner's Bassoon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Same here. Also probably Foden over Jota.

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

        I’d prefer Bruno over Mane and go Bruno -> Salah when fit

        Otherwise you’re stuck with Mane long term as the move to Salah looks too sideways despite him being the far better pick or the 2. Plus I think Bruno outscores Mane short term

        1. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          If short term, why not jrod over Bruno?

    • El_Gigante
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Team needs some repairing. Keen to get one/two MCI and Vardy from GW10 onward.

      For GW9, Burke>Grealish and Son>Fernandes(c) for -4? (allowing me to get 11 players out)

      Then for GW10, Fernandes>KDB and Kane>Vardy for -4?

      Or skip the Fernandes step in between to save points?

      Martinez
      Chilwell, Coufal, Taylor, Lamptey

      1. Miguel Sanchez

      Benching Salah this week who do I play Bissouma (AVL away) or Justin (L'Pool away)?

      Team is
      McCarthy
      Lamptey - Chillwell, Zouma

      Son- Salah* - Grealish - Bruno

      Kane - DCL - Bamford

      Steer/Justin.Bissouma/Douglas*

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I'd like to but already on -4 - will sell Salah if he's not due to play in GW10 for KDB

      2. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Bissouma.

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

      Mane (C)

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        As good a shout as any. Bruno the favorite tho

      2. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years

        Not put off by the 5 at the back Leicester deploys?

    • Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      GW10 captain, will inform trasnfer decisions this GW:

      A) Rashford (sot)
      B) Vardy (FUL)

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        B

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

        That's a coin toss. If there's a single game I want to own Rashford for the entire season it's Southampton. And Fulham are dire

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yup - the stats back up the fact that Rashford could do really well down that side too as Werner, Son and Zaha have done already

      3. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        B

      4. Shatner's Bassoon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        No City asset vs Burnley?

        They always absolutely cane them at the Etihad. KDB for me.

      Asking .. is it worth to move Salah to somebody and hit the WC next week and probably bring salah back ?

    • Kingtekkerz
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      With Heaton back in training, do you think Martinez will lose his place when Heaton is match fit?

      1. MESSINHO
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        No way.

      2. Puntillimon

        Definitely noy

      3. puhd

        No

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

        I think he signed with assurances he would be first choice

    • Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Better option?

      A)
      GW9: Bruno(c) + Ziyech
      GW10: Bruno + only one of Vardy or KDB

      B)
      GW9: Ziyech (c) + KDB
      GW10: Vardy(c) + KDB

      1. puhd
        • 6 Years

        I think A

    • Saïss doesn't mat…

      Vardy or Werner on WC?

      1. Kingtekkerz

        2 months, 6 days ago

        Vardy

      2. Make United Great Again
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Vardy

      3. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I’m on werner as caught price rise, will keep for Newcastle, then ship for vardy next week/... if he’s fit

    • CrouchDown
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Which of these is better? Not sure whether to plan ahead or not...

      (A) Salah + Foden > Bruno + Ziyech (-4)

      (B) Salah + Foden > Rashford + Zaha

      *(B) frees up money to do Kane + Son > KDB + Vardy in GW10

      1. CrouchDown
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        (B) is also for -4

      2. puhd

        2 months, 6 days ago

        A

      4. MESSINHO
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        For this week only, I'd get Ziyech. Actually I'd want Ziyech for long term too, but KdB is essential with City fixtures after GW9.

      Current WC draft:

      -Double City defense for those fixtures.
      -Mccarthy+Targett over KWP+Martinez
      -Vardy over Werner.
      -1.5M ITB to bring Salah back.

      Mccarthy
      Cancelo Chilwell Targett
      KDB Bruno Grealish Ziyech

      Thoughts?

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        1.5 ITB is not sufficient to bring back salah from Bruno though. Downgrade soucek? Play kilman over targett?

      Shoddy press conf timing by Dean Smith. What's the point doing it before having a chance to check on the international players. Doesn't he know how important my FPL team is?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      With December's schedule being brutal, im worried about getting Cancelo in. Id say he plays like 3 out of 5 games with Mendy and Zinchenko lurking.

      Dias seems safer, probably 4 out of 5 games.

      I'm tempted with Maguire - top for shots in the box and you'd think rotation proof

      Martinez (Forster)
      Chilwell Cancelo Coufal (Lewis 3.9)
      Mane Bruno KdB Ziyech Grealish
      Watkins DCL (Brewster)

      Got 0.2 ITB for Mane -> Salah (Salah has to drop 0.1 more, which I guess is very likely?)

        Looks solid

        As template as it gets for WC, and it's a good thing imo. Salah will most probably drop .1 more, yes.

          • 1 Year
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Could be.. Would love Vardy in there, but pretty reluctant to lose any of the Mids.

          Had a rough start ad OR around 1 mil.. Hoping it's only an FFS template. Also, lots of players already used their WC, so guess it's a WC template, which many players can't get unless they take huge hits
