    For the next couple of GWs:
    a) Vardy
    b) Werner

      A

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      A - decent record against Liverpool, plays one of the worst defences in Fulham and then has old scores to settle against the Blades as a Wednesday fan

  2. Henrik Larsson
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 8 days ago

    It looks like the consensus is to get rid of Salah reading through most of the past comments?

    Is this a reaction to the 2nd negative test. Do we now think he will miss the next two GWs?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      That's the fear - plus price already dropped and likely to drop again

    2. Nespinha
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      2 GWs is minimum, if he keeps testing positive for covid it's even longer

    3. Henrik Larsson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 8 days ago

      It'll take a -4 for me to do it, but I think I'll have to bite the bullet.

      (Foolishly made some early transfers to beat price rises)

  3. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Thoughts on Masuaku vs Coufal?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Coufal - safer if they were to move back to a back 4 to accommodate another mid

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Got Couf last week - no complaints.
      Less attacking maybe, but more nailed, still pretty good going forward and likes a BAP

  4. Firminoooo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    1FT and 0.5 itb. Any suggestions?

    Martinez (Steer)
    Robertson Chilwell Masuaku Kilman (Lamptey)
    Bruno KdB Grealish (Salah, Anguissa)
    Jimenez DCL (Brewster)

    Only upgrade I can do without a hit is Anguissa to Soucek. Can downgrade Jimenez, Robertson or Salah and upgrade Brewster/Anguissa for -4. Worth it?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Soucek in this week and play him

  5. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    An additional hit (I know, don't make transfers early) for Salah > Bruno and give him the armband?

    Kilman, Dallas, Coufal, KWP
    Harrison, Grealish, Son, Ziyech,
    Kane, DCL

    Mitchell, Salah, Wilson

    1. Corona is not good 4 U
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yes in my opinion.

      • Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        For how long? Will you want KDB next week?

        1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Son could make way for KDB if City look like they are firing on all cylinders

          1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            also will want Salah back once negative and match fit

    2. sirmorbach
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Does it make any sense at all to bench Cancelo (Spurs away) and play Kilman (Southampton at home)?

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Kilmans father passed away so might be taking leave anyway

      2. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        No. CS odds not too different, Cancelo attacking threat and Kilman might not play anyway after family tragedy

      3. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Yes. And if Kilman is out then Cancelo will replace.

      4. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Doherty out with COVID and up against Aurier who can't defend. Kilman may be out due to family bereavement and Wolves were weak on the left side with Kilman and Nouri so Saiss may start. Start Cancelo

    3. Corona is not good 4 U
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Is this team good to go?

        McCarthy (Steer)
        Zouma, Coufal, Justin (Ayling) (Mitchell)
        Fernandes, Grealish, de Bruyne, Son (Bissouma)
        Kane, Calvert-Lewin, Wilson

        Thank you!

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Looks splendid

          Salah.
          Would you rather hold and find out he’s out for two or sell and find out he’s out for one?

          1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…

            • 3 Years

            Rather he wasn't sick at all

            1. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

              It’s funny, he’s out sick but he’s not sick.

          • 1 Year
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Best 5.5 defender?
          A. Telles
          B. Dias (double up with Cancelo)

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Prefer Telles probably

          2. King Kohli
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Dias but not sure on double city defence as you might want another City spot in attack down the line

            1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              This for me.

            2. Pukki Blinders
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Missing out on City CS points for a 'possibility' of wanting another City attacker? Think that may be a while away, their attack isn't clicking yet

              1. Major League Shocker
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 8 days ago

                Trust your own thought process and do what you want. Never expect much encouragement here for deviating from the template.

                Defence is one of the best places to find differentials right now (Mark confirmed as much on his FPL Surgery guest appearance).

        4. King Kohli
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Cresswell worth the 0.6 more than Coufal?

          Basically is Cresswell good enough to be played every week or rotate Coufal with Kilman for the 3rd defender position

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            I went Coufal and happy so far, but Cresswell "could" have got a ridiculous score against Fulham

          2. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            You believe WHU will keep a CS if you are considering Cresswell and Coufal. I think Cresswell is worth the extra 0.6 due to having set pieces on top of the possible CS points

          3. Birds of Prey
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Hope so. I'm playing him this week away. Maybe not against City away otherwise he's looked good. But now that he's on my squad likely to get a triangle. Has a long history of injuries. Good luck to us.

          4. Pukki Blinders
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Set pieces aren't worth 0.6 for me

            • 7 Years

            Coufal is value. Cresswell is luxury imo.

          Hi Chaps. How’s this looking? Already -8 (Bruno Ziyech Coufal for Son TAA Romeo) so happy to keep Salah until he returns.

          Martinez
          Lamptey Coufal Chilwell
          Bruno Ziyech Grealish (c) Zaha
          Kane Bamford DCL (vc)

          1. Tonyawesome69 WC,FH,TC left
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Look decent apart from the -8 and benching Salah. Probably would've leaned towards DCL ahead of Grealish for the captaincy pick.

            1. Forever In Our Shadow
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              Of course benching Salah. Have you been on the moon? 😉

          Vassilev to Watkins or Salah to Bruno with the FT or do both transfers for -4?

            No idea who Vassilev is but Salah to Bruno.

          Do we reckon mitchell starts on his return?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            No. But then Woy can be very loyal to players so he could.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            I estimate his changes of starting to be 23.5%.

          Hi all - do I have too many 'needed transfers' ahead to do Salah > KDB this week, given I'd want to bring back Salah when fit?

          I was all set for Drossard > Soucek before the Salah news, with a view to Saiss, Son, and Kane > Cancelo, KDB and Vardy over following 2 GWs. (Plus Mitchell isn't nailed; Brewster flagged).

          Any advice much appreciated. Thanks!

            3 months, 8 days ago

            Kane -> Vardy for - 4 is probably too risky?

            Vardy has a good record against Liverpool and Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk will not play. Vardys next fixtures are also tasty (Fulham, Sheffield, Brighton).

            Kane has difficult fixtures (City and Chelsea).

            Thank you!

            Don't want to be negative but aren't you wondering about Villa players overperforming or that they are one-hit wonders? Don't get me wrong I think Grealish is a great pick but I wouldn't name him essential. Could be a bubble, could be not.

            P.S. Don't hate Watkins/Grealish owners.

            Is it worth switching Werner for Vardy or should i just keep?
