      Sterling or. Bruno n play mendy

      1. varan15
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks..My Heart Says Sterling, but doubt on his starting status compare last week with Spurs started from bench.

  8. Roy Rovers
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Desperately want two City.........

    Son > KDB
    Grealish > Sterling
    Salah > Jota -4.....yay or nay?

    Martinez
    Dallas Zouma Vestergaard
    Salah Bruno Son Grealish
    DCL Vardy Bamford

    Forster Lamptey Bissouma Mitchell

    1. Nice to Finally Michu
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nay

    2. NOMONEY
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      selling salah for a -4 is a recipe for disaster

    3. KUN+10
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      What for? Wait until they show some form

    4. Bojam
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Why so desperate? Compared to previous seasons they've looked a shadow of their former selves. Sure they will go wild at some point but I wouldn't be taking hits to get them in (especially not when it involves removing Salah!). Be more patient and plan your transfers would be my advice.

    5. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      One is enough and that to from next week!
      Getting rid of Son (most points in FPL), Grealish (great fixtures and in form) and Salah (No need to say anything) for
      KdB (Out of form), Sterling (Just back from injury, out of form, rotation risk) and Jota (In from but rotation risk) is just not worth it! And that to for a hit!

    6. Roy Rovers
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Thats a nay then!!......thanks to everyone.

  9. WE GO FOR IT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Pick one:

    A. Son to KdB
    B. Son to Salah
    C. Keep Son. Wait and see how KdB performs against Burnley before getting him against Fulham, which is the better fixture anyway.

    Have Kane and Bruno (who might go for Salah in GW 12 if I don't get Salah now)

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Salah

  10. Tsparkes10
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    1) which city are you going with (if any)
    2) Salah essential?
    3) Punt on Jota and Aguero too much?
    4) keep or ditch Hamez

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      1. I'd probably go just KdB. Their attack is nowhere near good enough to warrant anyone else. Also, KdB is the least likely to get rotated. So, it just makes sense.

      2. I don't think anyone is essential, no! But, his consistency and explosiveness is rare. You need to invest the funds you save by not having him well to make sure he is worth it.

      3. Both? Yeah! Jota seems like a good option. Aguero is a rotation risk and City aren't playing great.

      4. Keep unless you need to sell him to get Salah/KdB. Ziyech/Grealish could be good options in that price bracket if you want to change.

    2. waldo666
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      1) KDB if I do
      2) No one is
      3) I think it might be
      4) Depends who you replace him with

    3. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Sterling KDB Cancelo

      Probably

      No but Kun now is risky.
      If I could have waited another week I would have had Kun over either Sterling or KDB

      Difficult I did ditch him and got Digne instead. That worked out well 🙂

    4. Phil's Stamps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      1) This week KDB & Cancelo, next week Sterling comes in. For the WBA game I will get Kun instead of Sterling if he's starting by then.
      2) Probably not essential this week until we can check he's ok, but I would want him going forward.
      3) No, I'm planning this ( as mentioned will have Cancelo too), but you need min. two decent benchers (Barkley -don't ask- and Lamptey for me).
      4) If you can hold for this week do so but considering Jota's rests he's an obvious switch.

  11. S3
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Martinez
    Chilwell - James - Cresswell
    Rash - Sterling -Lookman - Son - Grealish
    DCL - Kane
    (Steer - Mitchell - Lamptey - Brewster)
    1.0M ITB

    Need your help guys
    A) Lookman >> Jota
    B) Kane >> Vardy (C)
    C) James >> PVA
    D) A and B (-4)

    anyone here without salah too?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 11 Years

      Most here sold for Bruno

    2. Albrightondknight
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Me I can get him with a -8 with Bruno out 🙂

    3. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Me. Need a couch till I get him back.

    4. Tsparkes10
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Not had him all season

    5. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      We can't have them all. Only hope KDB & Bruno can score more than Salah.

      1. huhhh
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        yeah man. hope so!

  13. Albrightondknight
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is Chilwell Cancelo Coufal ( Digne Bernardo) too risky and should I take a hit to replace Digne

    I had planned holding an FT next week and in GW 12
    Going Digne and Bruno
    To Salah and 5 mil defender
    If I take the hit now I can hopefully get Salah a week earlier than planned.

    1. WE GO FOR IT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      With COVID, having no playing sub is risky. Although, if it is just one (or maybe two) week(s), you probably can get away with it.

      1. Albrightondknight
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Not just co-vid it’s the possible Cancelo rotation that I am more worried about. If I knew he plays I would not take a hit now.

        1. WE GO FOR IT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          True. That is a risk as well! But I'd still stick for this week

          1. Albrightondknight
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Thanks. Final thought there is also the fact that I have Grealish and Watkins v Coufal would that change your call?

  14. shiraz
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Took a -4 and get bruno and vardy to replace rashford. I know it is redundant to do the rash>bruno switch, but with bruno hauling and rash blanking i am losing points against my friends in the ml. Here is my new team lineup

      McCarthy Ryan
      PVA Chilwell Coufal Lamptey Dunne
      Bruno Son Grealish KDB
      Watkins DCL Vardy

      Left with 0.4 itb. GTG?

      Planning to do PVA > James/Bellerin before gw 12 so that i can get salah in tor kdb

      1. Albrightondknight

        Looks good GL

    • seewhyaxe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I have 5 players in the Spurs/Chelsea game and I'm kinda worried. Yet I feel like my best move this gw is to save the FT.

      Anybody else has similar issues?

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What score are you expecting?

        1. seewhyaxe
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I'm expecting a low scoring affair actually.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Guess it's about future GWs then.

            1. seewhyaxe
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              To me, it feels like it's the more informed decision to be made in the future gws and hope for the best for this.

              1. TorresMagic™
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                • 11 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Yep, a 0-0 would hurt but nice fixture next GW for both.

        2. TorresMagic™
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights

                • 11 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                Could save or go -12. Anything is possible in this crazy GW/season.

      Hi all, correct line up?

      Martinez
      Chilwell cresswell cancelo
      Kdb Bruno (C) jota grealish ziyech
      Werner richarlison

      Forster Watkins coufal Mitchell

      1. TorresMagic™
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Hopefully, Watkins could hurt.

        1. Bojam
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yep. His 18 point hatrick vs Liverpool first on my bench definitely stung! Not doing that again.

          1. TorresMagic™
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Hammers pretty decent so less likely. No Barkley hurts and Grealish might assist anyway.

            1. Bojam
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 1 day ago

              True. But he got a brace versus an otherwise pretty solid Arsenal defence as well. West Ham have been good but I'm inclined to bench Coufal this week as can see Villa doing the business. Barkley out is a bit of a concern though..

              1. TorresMagic™
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 11 Years
                2 months, 1 day ago

                You have Cresswell, other 2 must play.

                  Nevermind, for original post.

    • maditass
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Current team is like this:

      Martinez -
      Robbo - Chillwell - Cresswell - Dunne - Braithwaite
      Salah - Son - Grealish - Bissouma - Ziyech
      Kane - DCL - Bamford

      I really want jota in and i might fall into the penalty united force, but to do that i need to take a hit.

      Son, Martinez and Grealish to Jota, Mccarthy and Fernandes.

      But the big question is if this is worth it or not for a -4 and as so many people has grealish (and he can be randomly explosive) in reluctant to remove him and i kinda hate the penalty bonanza that united are dependant on (liverpool supporter ftw)
      I have 2 FT and 0.8 itb

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Ziyech > Jota. No hit needed.

          Why would i get rid of ziyech? Chelsea has good fixtures after spurs

      Thoughts on Aguero?

      1. Puntillimon
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        A bit of a punt. Maybe wait for next week

        1. chaser123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yeh. I should probably just get Vardy

      2. Pops15
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I definitely have my eyes on him but just not yet. He is one of, if not the most explosive player in the game and if we have any idea that he might be starting vs a Fulham side next week I would be highly tempted. I've made the move of Kane to Vardy this week so I have the placeholder for Aguero if things go that way

    • pakornk
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Play March or Dallas?

        Kinda want Aguero in my team atm. Crazy proven differential.

              yeah am thinking of that too. but jus not sure will it be too much leeds.. afterall is vs everton.

                It's a simple Dallas vs KWP though.

          Nice team. I never considered Vardy. His team are not creating much and his stats (penalties aside) are poor too.
          But then again Vardy in the exception that breaks stats.

          Imagine Semedo gets dropped for letting Walcott score.

              Go for it

              Do it now.

              On WC:
              Jota and Vardy
              Or
              Bruno and Watkins

              Already got Salah.

                Is this a 343? If it is could you go a 352 with Bruno and Jota and Brewster 3rd forward.

                1. OleBall
                    2 months, 1 day ago

                    Can't afford that without messing with rest of the team.

                      2 months, 1 day ago

                      Probably A so but I wouldn’t hold Vardy past these nice few fixtures.

                Nyland Taylor burke dunne

                A- Kane to Vardy

                C- Kane & son to Vardy & kdb (-4)

                      Wouldn't Sterling be an be starting from Bench, might get less minutes like last week or high chance on benched full time

                  Hey guys, really can't decide if I should stick with this team or take a -4 to bring in one of Vardy/KDB/Salah. With this team will have to either captain Bruno or DCL.

                  Martinez 4.0
                  Lamptey PVA Mitchell Robbo Chilwell
                  Grealish Son Bruno Jota 4.5
                  Kane DCL Bamford

                  3.6 ITB. No FT left. What do you suggest?

                  Cheers

                    Captains Poll is a good guide.
