Targeting Man City assets and why I’m holding onto the Wildcard

Manchester City’s Gameweek 10 fixture swing is finally upon us and it could prove to be pivotal to how the Fantasy Premier League season pans out for many of us.

We have truly reached an important crossroads for our big decisions as the focus continues shift away from Tottenham assets in the direction of Manchester City’s premium attackers. 

The Citizens have seriously explosive potential as they host Burnley (who could be short of Nick Pope), Fulham and West Bromwich Albion in the next four rounds while Newcastle will come to the Etihad Stadium in Gameweek 15.

    A red train traveling at 72 km/h and a green train traveling at 144 km/h are headed toward one another along a straight, level track. When they are 950 m apart, each engineer sees the other's train and applies the brakes. The brakes slow each train at the rate of 1.0 m/s2. Is there a collision?

      A

    2. Bennerman

      Does it involve a hit?

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

        It does

    3. MarcusAurelius

      Good to go

    4. Hazz

      Yes, but only in a DGW.

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

      They do collide after the slower train has completely stopped.

        Extra point for Mr Livefpl

      Brakes is essential.

    7. DK_13
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yup, 1000m should have been the distance to avoid the collision

      1. Bennerman
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        -12 passengers

    8. asdf_1
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      The red train travels 200m before it stops while the green needs 800m.
      Total of 1000m and BOOM since 1000>950.
      You just returned me to my uni days.

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…

    9. The Mandalorian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      At those speeds with that distance apart the green train definitely collides.

    10. Ógie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      Yes they collide even though the red train managed to come to a halt but the green train did not stop in time to avoid a collision.

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

        The green train was traveling at 10 m/s when it hit for what it's worth.

      Thanks all. KDB (c) it is.

    13. true_Jerry
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 8 days ago

      more more please!

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

    Why does everyone mention KDB may be further back in a midfield two against weaker opposition.

    Most of the time Pep plays a double pivot of say Rodri/Guno against the big teams with Kev as the attacking midfielder.

    Against weaker oppo he just plays say a Rodri in a holding role with two attacking midfielders in front of him who work in the lines between the oppo's midfield and defence. Kev usually based more on the left and then David Silva, previously would be on the right. I expect this to continue with either Bernardo or Foden used as the other attacking mid.

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

      I think KDBs position makes no difference whatsoever. He hauls from deep too with assist and late on in games anyway

      1. Smurf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Agreed. Being deeper can often be better as when he crosses from deep, just like Trent it is a very effective form of assisting.

      What option would you take for game week 10 I want to get rid of 1 Spurs for there hard run ...

      Son and j rod for slash and jota

      Kane and j rod for Vardy and jota

      Kane and j rod for Vardy and kdb

    • ElliotJHP
      • 8 Years

      Last one for the draft side, need to bench one:

      A) Cresswell (AVL)
      B) Fornals (AVL)
      C) Torres (BUR)

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

      Not sure who to bench this week...
      My team currently:

      Martinez
      Chilwell, Coufal, Konsa, Cancelo
      Hamez, KDB(c), Fernandes, Maddison
      Kane, DCL

      (4.0, Barkley, Brewster, Lamptey)

      Start Barkley over anyone??

      1. BeWater
          3 months, 8 days ago

          Barkley is out for two games minimum. Don't know why it hasn't been updated on FPL.

      2. Noah’s Ark
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 8 days ago

        Maverick or madness

        Chillwell and Werner
        To
        Dias and Aguero

        Exact funds. Want to keep Kane and Son.

        1. BeWater
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Both maverick and madness. Not sure I would be going near Aguero. Especially while Jesus is in the picture.

          • DGW Sane TC Fail....
            • 10 Years

            madness

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

          Which one sounds best? Vardy (c) anyway.

          1. Son Hamez to KDB Jota -4
          2. Reguilon Hamez to Cancelo Sterling -4
          3. Reguilon to Cancelo
          4. Hamez to Sterling (KDB not possible)

          1. Atimis
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Recon 2 could pay off over next two GWs?

            1. ted mcnure
              • 10 Years
              3 months, 8 days ago

              2 or 4, depends on rest of team No hit.

          Such a boring question! But who would you play out of Soucek or Brewster?

          Can you give me a bit of tactical reasons why..

          Soucek seems to get a couple chances a game but Villa will be attacking and he will have his hands full defending.

          Brewster is a total unknown, not had a chance yet because he's only played top 6 teams.. so who knows, but its west brom?!

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 8 days ago

            Soucek. More attacking, better team. Sheff U are awful

            1. FPL_Motty
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              3 months, 8 days ago

              This is true, my first instinct was soucek because I know what I get from him, he's been a threat. Brewster is totally unknown, probably too much so I guess..

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

            I have the same dilemma, but have a gut feeling Brewster is gonna get his first attacking return

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

              will he start though

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

                Should be, thought the reason he was benched last GW was because he wasn't fully fit?

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

                Yeah should start no problem, but will he do anything is more important

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

              Sheffield utd its a must win game isnt it.. they absolutely need to score. Against another bottom team, its kind of now or never.. he's enticing but its difficult to take the risk!

            Considering you have weak bench in Saiss and Mitchell I wont be so keen on Jota. Even Justin could.be a worry soon as Perreira is back...Can you do Kane+ Son to Vardy c + Kdb?
            Can advice me below?

            1. RAFA THE GAFFA

        5. RECKLESS
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 8 days ago

          How is this transfer plan targetting captains vs Fulham or they not as bad as I think they are:
          This gw Kane to Vardy c
          Next GW Rodriguez to Kdb c
          After that GW 12 Bruno to Salah C
          This also entails going Salah and kdb less amd trusting Son longterm. Worth the gamble?

            • 4 Years

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          3 months, 8 days ago

          Can’t decide whom to get rid off between Barnes (FUL), son or Kane for either Kdb/salah. 4m itb

          Martinez
          Chilwell James Saiss -- Lamptey Mitchell
          Bruno Grealish Son Barnes
          Kane Watkins DCL

          A: Saiss + Barnes >> Nkounou+ KDB (-4). Then look to do Mitchel/Bruno/kane >> Robbo/Salah/Bamford in gw12

          B: Saiss + Son >> Dias + KDB (-4). Barnes/Kane >> Salah/Bamford in gw12. Similar outcome as A bit with Dias/Bruno over robbo/son

          C: Saiss + Bruno + Son >> Bellerín + KDB + Salah (-8). avoids planning any future transfers

        8. Shark Team

          Kdb(-4)
          or
          Ziyech
          for this gw?
          I don't want to captain.

            Would you move the armband over to KDB/Sterling from Vardy now with Pope out?

            RMT

            Martinez (Forster)
            Chilwell Cancelo Coufal(Lamptey)(Neco)
            KDB Fernandes Ziyech Grealish (Riedewald)
            Vardy(C) DCL Watkins

            1 FT and 2.1 ITB

            A) Fernandes to Salah
            B) Watkins to Bamford
            C) Riedwald to Jota(bench Watkins)
            D) Save

            I'm thinking A because I'll be doing it for GW12 anyway if I don't do it now..

              Do you think Salah outscores Bruno this GW?

                Yes, I do.
                But slightly prefer Bruno for next GW.

                I think they score similar over next 2, but I just feel I might end up burning my FT next barring injuries so might as well get the move done now.
