      Keep Grealish for sure
      You can consider Jota for Ziyech, or just save.

      Lamptey to Cancelo, bench KWP

  3. Bielsa Murderball
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Probability of cancelo starting?

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

        I'd say it's high!

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Probably 75-85% just have someone first on the bench who will get you a 2 pointer at Least

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Some don’t have that luxury mate

      3. Slitherene
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        I think he starts one from the next 2 fixtures.

      4. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        He should, didn't start midweek

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Played 90 midweek

      5. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Low because Pep would want someone who can hold the width vs Burnley which makes Mendy a better pick over Cancelo. Moreover, City will have to defend less so they wouldn't need much solidity at the back. Can easily see Mendy getting 60-70 mins before getting subbed off.

    • Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Think I’ll stick Mitchell first on the bench and hope he plays, seems impossible to catch the anguissa haul these days!

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Anguissa needs to start before he hauls

    • Slitherene
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 9 days ago

      Martinez | Fodder
      Cancelo Justin Lascelles
      KdB Bruno Ziyech Grealish
      Vardy Richarlison Watkins
      | Soucek Lamptey Taylor

      1 FT, 2.1 ITB

      Cancelo -> Robertson
      For security of starts?

      1. Help Me!
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Now that you have Cancelo already, removing him now wouldn't be a good idea

        1. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I don't want to save a transfer

            • 4 Years

            Why not?

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Plan is to save a FT in GW 11, so that I can take a hit in GW 12.

          2. Help Me!
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Maybe upgrade Lascelles?

            1. Slitherene
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 9 days ago

              Won't be able to afford Salah then in GW 12

      2. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

      Post got ignored, sorry for repost

      Werner + Zaha > Watkins + KDB for -4? Yes or No?

      Have Salah, Son, Zaha, Grealish, Bissouma, Werner, Adams, Mitrovic

      1. Pukki Blinders

        Hello all. Am I all set?

        Martinez
        Coufal Chilwell Kilman
        Grealish Son Bruno Salah(C)
        Bamford Kane DCL

        Steer Dallas Bissouma Lamptey

        1. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Similar to mine but that shouldn't give you great comfort, given my current OR - maybe a more interesting Grealish option depending on funds

      6. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Now Sterling (C) is tempting me over Vardy, hmm.

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I guess there will come one GW, somewhere down the line, when he will stop to disappoint.

        2. DK_13
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Is he nailed to start?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Yes.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Pick 1 to sell

        Son
        Kane

        Any ideas would be welcomed

        1. Help Me!
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Kane

        2. Chandler Bing
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Kane imo Son cheaper and is basically the team's striker

        3. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Are you forced to sell? What's the context?

        4. yanky
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          son, kane on pens and is having best season of his career

      8. C_G
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        is Fuchs nailed?

        1. Pieterke30
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Lol. No, he absolutely isnt.

        2. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Um no

      9. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Rodriguez price didn't dropped. I have plan to sell him for gw 11, so maybe I should take the risk today before his price fall...

          1. Shark Team
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            After the deadline unless I bring Jota earlier

      10. Chandler Bing
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Will we get more news on Castagne before deadline? Was really looking at him for Mitchell this week.

        1. mlm
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Will Mitchell play?

            • 4 Years

            Highly doubt it

        2. DK_13
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I have him too, waiting for the pressers

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Which combo here....

        1) 4.3m def (Lewis or Nkounkou) + KDB or
        2) 4.4m def (Balbuena) + Sterling

        The defender will need to start this gw and will rotate with lamptey going forward

        1. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Woof - 2, given that criteria

          1. unitednations
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

        Hello, dead zone! Anyone thinking Aguero?

        1. yanky
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          not quite yet but hes on my radar

          1. GE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 9 days ago

            Same

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

          I just feel that he could well come in and "announce himself" again - seems like he usually does but I don't have data to back that up

        3. Slitherene
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Had him for a week, uninspiring & also got injured.

        help please— ive already taken a 4pt hit and still dont have kdb/salah/vardy as clear captain options.

        1) no more hits and bruno (c)
        2) son > KDB (c) for -4pt
        3) son > Salah (c) for -4pt
        4) Podence > Jota for -4 and (c) Bruno

          1

      15. GE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        1) Kane and Bissouma -> KDB and Brewster (means 3-5-2)
        2) Kane and Brewster -> Salah and Brewster (means 3-5-2)
        3) Kane, James and Robertson -> KDB, Vardy and Creswell (-4)

          2 for me - Salah tends to be Salah and 1 and 3 don't have much form to support either.

      16. Rolls-Royce
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Morning folks. Some huge dilemmas this week.

        If you could have only one at the moment, which would you go for?

        A) Vardy
        B) KdB
        C) Salah

        1. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          I'd probably go with Mo - Vardy looked TIRED at liverpool last weekend (why, who knows) and KdB looks exasperated for whatever reason. I'd guess City's form has something to do with it

        2. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Salah

        3. Rolls-Royce
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Ta both. Currently looking at Vardy because I bought Jota last week.

      17. Shark Team
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Son or Jota for the next 5-6?

        1. TOLV TUMS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Son for me

        2. PastaConcerto
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 9 days ago

          Both...but Son if you're getting Salah for GW 12

      18. Garlana
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 9 days ago

        Morning...the wheels are starting to fall off my team, Im seriously thinking about taking a -8 this week to fix it up for the coming weeks. Already had to remove Saiss.

          I do love a -8 myself, I must admit. What moves are you contemplating?

          I've seen much worse teams... Lamptey back next week and him missing Liverpool game will enable Robbo to get forward more easily. You have to decide if you want double Spurs and double Chelsea with their more difficult fixtures coming up, but no need to take Hits this week as far as I can see.

        Went Ziyech to Salah and Kane to Vardy. Choosing to keep Son over Ziyech and Vardy and Salah over KDB. Difficult choices.

          If i'm reading it correctly you've just done Kane to Vardy - but holding Son, and somehow keeping Son over Vardy? That's difficult indeed, if I'm following correctly! Which I readily admit I may not be.

        People selling Ziyech and saying that he assists the assiter after one blank is hilarious!

        He just scored 25 points in 2 matches befoe that 😀

          This.

          I think this was inevitable. If you watched both the matches Ziyech started, he never looked like someone who is going to get into the box often or take a lot of shots. He usually preferred to play long diagonal balls to Werner/Chilwell and take shots from outside the box. Most of his chances creation and hence the assists came from set-pieces.

          He is still a good option for his price in that Chelsea team but the will be spells where he will go without points whilst looking good and putting up numbers. I'd much rather prefer Werner for Chelsea atm.

            Werner is 1.5m more expensive though and takes up a forward spot where there are 6.5m striker performing very well and Kane/Vardy look more trustworthy shouts.

            I guess the people who got him for GW9 are the ones tempted to sell. If you got him a week or two before that you're laughing at all these assist the assister claims.

              If anyone got him before his two hauls then fair play, but as someone who likes to watch the matches before getting onto players, I thought there were better(and cheaper) options than Zeyich eg. Jota.

            If you're looking to participate in Chelsea attack I think this is spot-on. Better options than HZ.

            Ziyech does fancy a few shots from outside the box. Also if Havertz starts another man in the box to provide assists to.

          Ziyech passing diagonal into that Aurier space would be lovely to watch this GW

          Don't know how you did it this year. Every time I tried to follow value they went up 0.1 and then stuck! Did you gain much value playing your wild card?

        I’m a bit lost of ideas as what I should do with zaha and whether to take a -4 hit to help a good move. Can anyone suggest ?

          Well I'm keeping him but I've got Soucek not Bissouma as a sub this week. Have you any money itb? Not convinced a hit for Jota or Grealish, say, worth a hit when Zaha a good fixture next week.

        Would you sell ziyech/son for kdb?
        Risky words these but dont see son getting a lot against Chelsea and Arsenal, Ziyech has good fixtures after spurs

          As someone wrote somewhere recently, City apparently hadn't watched MOTD and deduced that Son is quite good at scoring goals and generally being a nuisance in the opponent's half. I can see him doing just fine against Chelsea (still potentially leaky) and Arsenal.

          1. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years

            I'm not saying he'll blank, but perhaps kdb/Salah would outscore him over the next 4?

            1. TOLV TUMS

              that's a tough one. Watching KdB last weekend, he just looked frustrated and miffed, generally. It's just eye-test stuff but a player's mental state has much to do with performance. Don't know anything beyond that.

                That's true, part of me wants to wait & watch how they do against Burnley & then maybe bring in for Fulham game, or I can get him from the Burnley fixture, coz GW12 is pencilled for Salah & a goalkeeper for guaita

          Bruno Grealish Robbo Chilwell but I have no idea what your finances look like

          If you are that unsure I'd save the wildcard!? I prefer B but with Dias for Cancelo as I think more certain to play.
