    RMT and Suggestions please?
    FT: 0 ITB: 2.3m

    Ryan, (4m)
    Chilwell, Lamptey, Justin, (Mitchel, Dunne)
    Jota, Salah, KDB, Mahrez, (Burke)
    DCL, Vardy, Bamford

    1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Need to fix up the defence a bit, only Lamptey and Chillwell are nailed

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Mahrez to son

        Spend change on dunne or mitchall to dallas

      2. Gemma817
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Yeah, thinking Justin to Reguilon after this GW?
        Then potentially, Mitchel to a 4.5m?

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 14 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Looks good i worry reguilon might share mins with davies over xmas

          1. Gemma817
            • 3 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            Valid point. Same concern with the City defenders

    2. Sarri-ball
      • 14 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Id sell dunne or mitchell

      Mahrez to son then spend change on buying upgrade on 4.0

      1. Gemma817
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I had Son to Mahrez last week to take a punt on a double up against Fulham.. Backfired miserably and I've now lost .3m in value tied to Son.. However, that doesn't mean I won't get him back. But yeah, sensible advice thanks mate

        1. Gemma817
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          I did* Son to Mahrez

        2. Sarri-ball
          • 14 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Its sometimes hard 2 go back on a swap. Mahrez still a ok option tho

          1. Gemma817
            • 3 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            Cheers mate! Mahrez plays a struggling Man United side and WBA (H) in the next two. Here's to hoping he survives the Pep roulette because the fixtures look good

  3. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 5 Years
    3 years, 6 months ago

    Abraham or Giroud to start for Chelsea?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Either or maybe neither. It’s why neither are options for me

    2. Sarri-ball
      • 14 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Giroud this weekend personally wouldnt touch either fpl wise

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 5 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        It's draft move and they're probably the best forward options in my league that are open

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 14 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Draft think id go abraham longterm.

  4. R.C
    • 6 Years
    3 years, 6 months ago

    It's a bigger risk not to cap Salah against Fulham than cap him.

    Talk me out of it.

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      You talk about risk as if reward doesn’t exist

    2. Donny_Rover
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      The other options in my team are KDB & Vardy, I just think even if Salah gets only half an hour he could run riot so I’ll be leaving it on him.

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 4 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Not an option when he’s playing with the reserve team around him

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        You do realise you're talking to Davros?

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 4 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Who?

          1. The Knights Template
            • 10 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            I certainly wouldn't be talking to Davros like this.

            1. Pukki Blinders
              • 4 Years
              3 years, 6 months ago

              Please educate me

              1. Slitherene
                • 6 Years
                3 years, 6 months ago

                Davros is gonna school you.

                1. The Knights Template
                  • 10 Years
                  3 years, 6 months ago

                  He sure is!

                2. Pukki Blinders
                  • 4 Years
                  3 years, 6 months ago

                  Bring it on Davros

                1. Pukki Blinders
                  • 4 Years
                  3 years, 6 months ago

                  Tell Davros to mutate me too

                  1. The Knights Template
                    • 10 Years
                    3 years, 6 months ago

                    I'm not telling Davros anything, I stay as far away from him as possible!

                    1. The Knights Template
                      • 10 Years
                      3 years, 6 months ago

                      The best place to avoid Davros is behind the couch. That's what I used to do in the late 1970's. Suggest you do the same.

  5. Pukki Blinders
    • 4 Years
    3 years, 6 months ago

    Who would you be capping this week?

    A. Bruno (MCI)
    B. KDB (mun)
    C. Salah (ful)
    D. Bam Bam (WHU)

    1. Flair
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      C

    2. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Mo

    3. Sarri-ball
      • 14 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Out them gota be salah

    4. Sanchit
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Salah

    5. Pomp and Circumstance
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Salah or Vardy

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Same deasion for me iv bern salah all week but edging vardy now after salah mins last night

        1. Pukki Blinders
          • 4 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Not a fan of Vardy fpl wise but would still rather cap him over Salah this week given the uncertainty

    6. Party time
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Party(C) Time ๐Ÿ™‚

      • The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        D

    7. Donny_Rover
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Meslier (Martinez)
      Chilwell Dias Cancelo Coufal (Taylor)
      KDB Salah (c) Jota Grealish (Bissouma)
      Vardy Bamford (Watkins)

      My thoughts this week are to bring in a Liverpool DF for Cancelo - the risk taker in me fancies TAA as a differential but the pragmatist thinks Robbo might be a safer shout - any thoughts?

      Planning then to roll a FT and get Kane back in after the Liverpool game - I’m £0.1m short so will be funded by either Jota to Bowen, Watkins to Welbeck or Taylor to fodder - will reassess after the next 2 games.

    8. OverTinker
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Captaincy this GW is giving me headaches. I am at one million rank so thinking of KDB(c) ahead of Salah.

      1. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Rank doesn't matter.
        Captain the player you think will score more.
        27 gameweeks are remaining! You need not take chances to directly go into the top 1k this week itself.

      2. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Why not

    9. Pomp and Circumstance
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      would KDB --> Salah for this GW, and then Salah --> KDB for the GW after be a good move? perhaps see if can get both on WC in a few rounds

      1. Sarri-ball
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        On paper good move but something allways happenes a injury etc. Surely lose value on kdb?

        Other way to get salah or hope is rested or got big couch

        1. Pomp and Circumstance
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          for KDB, would be 0.1; other thing is need to improve DF; and also have the WC to use soon

      2. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        On paper , yes.
        Specially if you want to captain them.
        But I'd rather look to get both this week itself ( even by sacrificing one of Kane Son Bruno Sterling)

      3. Olquinn
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Im in the same boat chief , after salah playing the full 90 in the champs I dont think he will start against fulham potential league decider against tottenham on the wednesday . Id stick with KDB cause united have been poor against big teams and he is in deece form so potential returns on his part.

    10. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Who do I get rid of? Lamptey or Cancelo?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Lamptey is a long term hold for me, but I’d also be wanting a City defender given fixtures. Why get rid of either?

        1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
          • 5 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Looking to get in Trent as a differential

      2. Saïss Doesn't Mat…
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        None

      3. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Lamptey. Looks good but consistently returns nothing

    11. The Head-Ake
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      2FT & 1.6 ITB. Don't know if I should even replace any of the big hitters. No KDB and Salah though so ๐Ÿ™

      McCarthy
      Lamptey | Zouma | Kilman
      Grealish | Bruno | Ziyech** | Son
      Werner | DCL | Kane

      Martin | Mitchell | Walker-Peters | Bissouma

      1. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I'd personally have Salah and KdB over Kane Son Werner and Bruno.
        Specially because of the captaincy.

        I would suggest to ship out Kane and Ziyech for Salah and Bamford.

        Kane has been brilliant but I don't think I'll cap him any of the next 4 gameweeks.

      2. Sarri-ball
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Ziyech/ 1 of dcl/werner to kdb/salah wilson type

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 14 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Banford/watkins

      3. The Head-Ake
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I could have Salah and KDB for a -8. Is it worth it?

        1. Sarri-ball
          • 14 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Who in who out for -8

          1. The Head-Ake
            • 7 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            Kane + Ziyech + Grealish + Lamptey to Brewster + Veltman + Salah + KDB

            1. Sanchit
              • 8 Years
              3 years, 6 months ago

              Just get Salah this week for 2 transfers and then get KDB next week for 2?

      4. Konstaapeli
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Why is Kilman in your starting 11?

        1. The Head-Ake
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Would bring in KWP.

          Gonna use WC to overhaul soon

    12. AC Yew
      • 5 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Best Captain this week that isnt Salah?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Kane

      2. Sarri-ball
        • 14 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Vardy

      3. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Kane or Vardy

      4. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Bamf

      5. Slitherene
        • 6 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Ings

    13. tommo123
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Vardy & Son to Salah & Wilson/Bamford ????

      Current Team

      McCarthy
      Konsa Reguilon Zouma
      KDB Fernandes Son Jota Zaha
      Vardy DCL

      1. BremerHB
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Would rather lose Zaha than Son. Can you make that work?

        1. tommo123
          • 8 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Not enough cash otherwise would definitely be going down that route

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Next week

        1. tommo123
          • 8 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Just worried about not having Salah vs Fulham

          1. Pukki Blinders
            • 4 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            May be benched, nothing to worry about yet just wait for the leaked lineups tomorrow

    14. BremerHB
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Which front 8 do you like better?

      A)
      Salah - KDB - Bruno - Son (4.3)
      Watkins - DCL - Bamford

      B)
      Salah - KDB - Bruno - Grealish (4.3)
      Ings - DCL - Bamford

      Comes down to losing Vardy & one of Grealish or Son for Salah..

      1. tommo123
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        B for me

        1. BremerHB
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Thanks!

      2. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        So your question is
        A. Son + Watkins
        B. Grealish + Ings

        I'd go with B for the short term.

        1. BremerHB
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Essentially, yes.
          Sorry - it’s early ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers!

      3. Saïss Doesn't Mat…
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Man, you could have just asked
        son + watkins or Grealish + ings hahaha

        Son + watkins

        1. BremerHB
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Yes, yes - I know! Not yet had my morning coffee!

    15. _Gunner
      • 9 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Save FT?

      Martinez
      Walker Chilwell Dallas
      Jota Grealish Bruno Son
      Kane Vardy DCL

      subs: Steer Coufal Bissouma Mitchell

      Who to captain?

    16. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Everyone trolling Pep after Biesla revealed his starting 11, Nuno is the real bald fraud who deserves to be trolled as much.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        But Nuno has a cool beard thank you very much.

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Can't argue with that!

    17. pundit of punts
      • 11 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Salah > Mane(c) on FT?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Nope

      2. lilmessipran
        • 11 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        why? Salah nailed on to start even after playing 90 imo, waste of a FT imo

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          I'm not saying he won't start. But there is a big possibility he wont start next game as Liverpool have Spurs 3 days later.

      3. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        No

      4. farmerfat
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        This hurts my eyes.

      5. Konstaapeli
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Could well work that.

    18. Slitherene
      • 6 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Would you start anyone from this bench?

      Martinez ¦ Forster
      Justin Lamptey Ayling
      Salah KdB Bruno Grealish
      Vardy Watkins Wilson
      ¦ Soucek Lascelles Taylor

      1. Sanchit
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Soucek for Wilson.
        Newcastle would probably play 6-7 reserves in their starting 11

        1. Slitherene
          • 6 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          As if the regulars are wayy better than the reserves. Benching Wilson could be foolish in hindsight.

      2. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years

        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I don't like leaks.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I’d say the snitch at Pool FC will be helping us out again this week

    20. Dog and Fox

      Please get me away from the idea of (C) Robertson this gw!

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I thought about this.

      2. Parsnips
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        I’m thinking of vc him lol

    21. The Head-Ake
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      How nailed on is Neco Williams?

      1. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        About as nailed as a strippers top in a brothel

        1. The Head-Ake
          • 7 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          lol

      2. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        He's nailed on like a dodgy fridge magnet.

      3. Saka_me_sideways
        • 3 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Think you’re good for one more week

    22. Saka_me_sideways
      • 3 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Bench one:

      A) Grealish (playing semedo.. for the last time)
      B) DCL
      C) Bamford

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        You play all these players or you're doing it wrong.

        1. Saka_me_sideways
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Tell me about it lol

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Neither are options to be benched

      3. FFSbet.com
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Uff,who are other mids and forwards?

        1. Saka_me_sideways
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Son KDB Grealish Bruno Jota

          Bamford DCL Wilson

          1. Saka_me_sideways
            • 3 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            Was gonna do Jota + Son > Salah and Soucek for -4.
            Reliving the benching headache... but now I don’t like the move

            1. thischarmingman
              • 12 Years
              3 years, 6 months ago

              What put you off? Im leaning same transfers (anguissa instead of soucek)

              1. Saka_me_sideways
                • 3 Years
                3 years, 6 months ago

                Salah playing 90 minutes... and losing son for a -4 just doesn’t sit right

          2. FFSbet.com
            • 8 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            DLC or Wilson coin

      4. Eze Really?
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Normally you should not have 8 forwards of that quality. However, there will be major rotation in the next 3 gameweeks.

        1. Saka_me_sideways
          • 3 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Last week’s blank has given me this team for one team... not normally how i roll.

    23. FFSbet.com
      • 8 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Better option going forward?

      A) Bowen + Bellerin + Ayling

      B) Soucek + Regulion + R.James

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        The answer is always B

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        B. All 3 are better

      3. FFSbet.com
        • 8 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Cheers, have A want B.
        Cant afford drop or rise on anyone, hope i can manage somehow.

      Werner. Keep or sell?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Keep for now

      2. Letsgo!
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        keep

    25. Eze Really?

      Last night was the worst Pool performance I have seen in a year.

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Just stick to watching everton perhsps?

        1. Eze Really?
          • 10 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          I know Pool a different class but Everton my team for 50 years. Just commenting on how poor Pool were.
          Unlike most, I was brought up in Pool and I have a soft spot for both sides. I am not really a type who hates Pool because we are long time rivals

            Refreshing to read this. Good on you

            Why anyone would hate another team is beyond me

          2. The Knights Template
            • 10 Years
            3 years, 6 months ago

            Fair enough.

      2. Pukki Blinders
        • 4 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Couldn’t have been worse than Everton in recent weeks

        1. Eze Really?
          • 10 Years
          3 years, 6 months ago

          Normally I would say yes, But absolute shocker.

    26. MoSalalalalalalalalah

      Mitchell + Werner > TAA + Bamford? Thoughts?

      0.9 ITB
      2 FT

      Martinez
      Cancelo | Lamptey | Chillwell
      Salah | Sterling | Podence | Son
      Watkins | Werner | DCL

      GK: Steer | Cresswell | Anguissa | Mitchell

      1. Concrete
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        No for me

        Your defence already has too much funds in it (the way I play the game anyway)

        I’d sort Podence out first

    27. Wakanda
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Mane aint that bad right ?

      Mane or Salah ?

      1. RIDZ
        • 7 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        yes but still Salah

    28. ChelseaBridgeBlue
      • 9 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Selling Ziyech, stuck between a couple of options.

      Ziyech -> Jota (1.1 ITB)

      Ziyech & Brewster -> £4.5 mid (Anguissa?) & Bamford (1.9 ITB)

    29. RIDZ
      • 7 Years
      3 years, 6 months ago

      Ziyech+DCL to Pulisic+Bamford for a hit

      yes or no ?

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        3 years, 6 months ago

        Don't sell DCL when he's in such good form, regardless of Everton form. Pulisic looks a decent swap for Ziyech for no hit.
