      I would want a City asset to captain next GW and this one if possible.

      Great team on paper.

        Crazy, this season I deliberately allow imperfection in the team to avoid 'good on paper' casualty 😆

    1FT & 1.9m ITB

    A) Barkley ➡ Jota
    B) Jimmy ➡ Vardy(c)

    D) Jimmy Barkley ➡ Vardy (c) Walcott/Soucek -4

    1. Stupendous

      Do you have a WC?

      1. La Roja
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Haha, is it that bad?

        No I don’t mate

        1. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Looks scary mate.

          Justin Jimmy Lamptey Burke Barkley Zouma, no KDB, no Salah.

          Needs WC sadly imo

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Nothing wrong with Justin and Zouma at this stage imo. And Lamptey is great asset to have, suspended for one game.

            I agree bench needs a bit of work though. Also Vardy in this GW and Salah next

            So I’m optimistic:)

            1. Bojam
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              Totally agree mate - no major overhaul required here. Barkley to Jota looks sensible if the injury is going to be more than a single GW. Reckon it's a good move anyway. KDB and Salah aren't by any means essential. Desirable no doubt but you can wait a week and assess your next move. Justin will probably lose his place at some point but should be fine this GW. And Zouma - well, you don't have to play him this week so fine on the bench for now. At least he's a fairly sure starter in a solid Chelsea defence. I think you're right to be optimistic!

    2. Royal5
      • 9 Years

      D imo

      1. Royal5
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        I got almost the same team (Grealish/Vardy over Barkley/Jimmy) and are 2k atm.

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          That’s pretty encouraging:)

      Barkley out, C, but A is good too

  5. mrrahrah
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Sounds like pope is out and with man city playing Fulham the following week, I think going to take the punt on kdb and transfer out son .

    Alternatively this is pretty reckless but could pay off is bring in salah, transfer him for kdb the next week, and then transfer him back in. Is anyone planning something like this out of interest?

    Cheers

  6. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    Has anyone managed to somehow on some planet fit in....

    Salah KDB Vardy and one of Son/Kane?

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Yep - will get there GW12 0.4ITB

      Martinez (4.0)

      I have Salah KDB Sterling Son (& Jota) and a cheapskate defence

      1. Stupendous
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Wow

  7. Scout15
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 8 days ago

    What would you choose?

    A) Rash -> Salah
    B) Boden -> Jota
    C) Boden+Werner -> Jota+Vardy (-4)

    1. Scout15
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      * Bowen

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

      Not C, I'm torn between A and B. I guess you could even hold the transfer this week as Rashford and Bowen's fixtures aren't too bad. Would probably want to get Salah in though.

    3. mataofperspective
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      B) Rashy could get a decent score this week

      1. UNDERWORLD7

        I keep telling myself that but he’s been atrocious

  8. UNDERWORLD7

    Little help here fellas before all the rush later today.

    Martinez
    Chillwell - Cancelo - James
    Soucek - Rashford - Ziyech - Bruno - Son
    Kane - DCL
    __________________________________
    Forster: Brewster: Mitchell: Dunne

    3.3 ITB, 1FT

    Quite intent on taking a hit, so the first move is very likely going to be Kane > Vardy, need to take advantage at my rank.

    Now who is your preference to move in for Rashford?

    A) KDB
    B) Salah

    Help appreciated here, cheers gents.

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

      I did A, but I already had B. Is there any way you can bring in KDB and Salah through your midfielders?

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Unfortunately not, would require quite some changes, or Bruno to KDB/Salah depending which one brought in first, and I want to keep Bruno.

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Suppose if you were choosing between Salah and KDB, who would it be?

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

          I'm captaining KDB so I guess it would have to be him

    2. mataofperspective
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Would you captain either ? If so base it on that , I think if you brought KDB and gave him the Arm band then that’s the winner

      1. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Oh of course, definitely I’d be capping Vardy bringing him in.
        KDB would be there for his run of fixtures then the notorious switch KDB > Salah perhaps in GW 12, or Bruno > Salah depending whoever is out of form.
        Ideally want to keep Bruno though.

      2. UNDERWORLD7
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Also why KDB cap over Vardy? That’s interesting

    A) Mane to Salah for a -4?
    B) Take a walk

    I'm worried Mane gets rested this weekend and if Salah hauls, a -4 is worth it.

    1. Wılly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B and don't take your phone with you!

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

      That's a judgement call for yourself, I'd personally want a Liverpool and Man City attacker

  13. Pilgrim62

    Cancelo or Diaz ?

    1. Wılly

      • 7 Years

      If I had that choice, I'd pick Dias for security

      Nice team and good moves! Could always backfire of course but the 2 you're bringing in look better on paper for the next few

      1. DA Minnion
        • 8 Years

        Yeah risky moves especially Son, but he who dares.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    I was all set on a WC this week due to the fixture swing & the state of my defence this week, now I'm not so sure on the Spurs exit. Hate seeing 4 players in 1 game and only have 1FT....

    McCarthy (Steer)

    Robertson, Chilwell, Taylor (cty) (Mitchell, Lamptey)

    Son, Fernandes (C), Ziyech, Grealish, James

    Mitrovic*, Kane (Brewster)

    A) Mitrovic -> Bamford
    B) WC the hell out of that team
    C) Something else??

    Thanks FFS.

  17. Who are all Lukakus
    • 4 Years

    Son to Salah(c) for a hit?
    Would captain Bruno otherwise.

    1. Amans94
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Don't think Bruno is a bad captain option, would avoid the hit if I could.

        1. Who are all Lukakus
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          The real question is Salah(c) can outscore Bruno + Son by 4 points?

          1) Bruno never blanks away
          2) I can see a Son goal from Spurs counter attack
          3) it is Salah versus BHA...

          Damn it is difficult

    2. Amans94
        3 months, 8 days ago

        On WC, which combo would be better moving forward/long-term?

        A) Vardy & Dias/Cancelo
        B) Kane & Justin/4.8m defender

        Who do we reckon scores more points next 2 GWs Salah BHA (a) WOL (h) or Sterling BUR (h) FUL (h). I wanna get KDB regardless not sure if it'll be a straight swap sterling for KDB this GW or transfer out salah for KDB this gameweek before transferring salah back in for sterling GW12 when liverpool play fulham. Any thoughts appreciated.

        No being mentioned on here at all really but I'm going with Kyle Walker for this good run of fixtures for City.

            Why not both? 😀

            Sterling came off early by his standards too... Citeh are clearly eyeing this match as a goal difference bonanza

                Ah, that can be a thing too... I have a backline of scarecrows and mannequins, so have a midfield of cash money. Sterling (C), KdB, Bruno, Zaha (likely Jota from GW11), Souček (watch him destroy Villa this weekend)

          My 2p worth: don't sell either. Seems like a minority opinion but Kane & Son can deliver against anyone. Selling either runs the risk of it backfiring badly - especially since there is no guarantee that Vardy or KDB rip it up this weekend. Of course, the opposite is true. I'm waiting another week on City attacking assets. And not that keen on Vardy. Kane is probably a season keeper for me unless his form tails off badly. Transfer him out and you'll probably want him back quite soon, losing money in the process.

            I hear you but it’s the fixtures. City’s fixtures are too hard to ignore.

              I hear you too. City fixtures are incredibly tempting. I'm getting a City defender this week and waiting to see whether the attack catches fire vs Burnley before jumping aboard. Won't wreck my season if KDB or Sterling do great this week and at least I'll have another week of data to make the call. Maybe City will continue to missfire and I won't kick myself when Son and/or Kane continue racking up the points.

          Is Cancelo nailed?

          1. UNDERWORLD7

            3 months, 8 days ago

            Facepalms......

            Yes, yes he is, at least for a month or so anyway.

            1. Gemma817
                3 months, 8 days ago

                A month is good. City's fixture swing

              Rotation risk with mendy and zinchenko back. Go diaz for security

              1. Gemma817
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  But but Cancelo's been so creative! Diaz sounds more secure tho yeah

                    It’s called overthinking, hilarious really where all this Cancelo risk has come from

                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 8 days ago

                  And yet he isn’t, Mendy has only just come back, and as if Zinchenko is anywhere near Cancelo.

                  I don't think so.
                  Mendy should get few starts.

                      3 months, 8 days ago

                      So Diaz it is? I've seen the midweek game, Cancelo played RB, Mendy LB. Don't know what to make of that. Surely Walker starts at RB this weekend.

                      Yes in around a month or so
