          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          coufal vs bri is a must start for me aswell

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

    Play Soucek or McGinn?

    1. DJGM
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Soucek for me. McGinn hasn't been looking like the McGinn from last season in the last few

    2. Amey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      McGin

  5. DJGM
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who would you say is the better transfer in for Chilwell, TAA or Robbo?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Can see TAA coming back in to form, but Robbo the safe bet has been performing all season.

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        ^this

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Robbo

    3. G Banger
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      TAA is a bit of a differential, Robbo has form (and would be my pick)

  6. Pukki Party
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Play

    A) Ayling (BUR)
    B) Taylor (lee)

    1. G Banger
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A for me

      1. DJGM
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        A

    2. Forgetmeknot
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I’m on same question. I’ve gone A on the basis of being the slightly better team and at home.

      But Burnley better def and Taylor playing higher up than the pitch if Ayling is CB?

      Have I just talked myself into B?

      1. Pukki Party
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        It's tough as it's a team that attacks too much versus a team that has one of the best defences in the league.

    3. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

  7. G Banger

    2 months, 2 days ago

    Morning, I have to make sacrifices to get Salah, so which main man out of this lot goes:

    a) Son
    b) Bruno
    c) KBD
    d) Kane

    1. DJGM
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      D

    2. clodhopper
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Kdb

    3. KneejerkJoe
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Depending on gw 18/19 strategy

    4. thegaffer82
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A) is the player I'd lose. I know he's FPL top points scorer, but the amount of chances he's getting is poor, and I just don't see him scoring as many goals going forward as the others listed here

    5. El Presidente
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      One Spurs

  9. McPollolocco
      2 months, 2 days ago

      For the next 2-3 gameweeks, which player should I transfer in?

      a) Taylor
      b) Bednarek
      c) Alioski
      d) Holgate?

      1. kennethrhcp
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        whats you 18/19 plan?

        1. McPollolocco
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Gw 18 free hit
            Gw 19 bench boost

            1. kennethrhcp
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              go with a dgwer so

              Leeds better fixtures in 19?

      2. Lev Yashin
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Play one:

        Coufal

          Coufal

      3. KneejerkJoe

        2 months, 2 days ago

        Play:
        A) Soucek (BHA home)
        B) Welbeck (WHU away)

        Got Coufal so heart says Soucek, but head says Welbeck, marginally.

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          A

      4. Garth Marenghi
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        More likely to be benched?
        A) taa
        B) robbo
        C) they’ll both start

        1. KneejerkJoe
          • 6 Years

      5. Mr_Barbs
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        2FTs. But pretty happy with the team this week. Any thoughts on these?

        A) Cresswell > Coufal
        B) Cresswell > Taylor
        C) Chilwell > Cancelo/Dias
        D) Chilwell > Zouma

        1. Pi
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Why Cresswell out?

          1. Mr_Barbs
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Free up a little cash mainly, got nothing itb. He's also not scored too many points lately but fixtures are still decent.

        2. kennethrhcp
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          A free up £££

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

          Depends whether you free hit in 18 or 19

          1. Mr_Barbs
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Not planned that far ahead yet :/

            1. kennethrhcp
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              start planning... its a hard 1

            2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Start planning mate

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

              C is good long term move with great fixtures and keeps your options open. They don’t have double in 19 but have palace at home then anyway which is fine

              1. Mr_Barbs
                • 3 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Yeah, C looks best bet to me. Fixtures decent. With Walker out for the next few, Cancelo looks good.

            4. Mr_Barbs
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              Need to use wildcard next GW. That's as far as my brain has managed

              1. elwardio
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Then use both free transfers now or they get wiped anyway. Free one week punt. What is your team

                1. Mr_Barbs
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  I'm so switched off this Christmas!

                  Meslier
                  Robbo, Cresswell, KWP
                  Salah(c), Bruno, Grealish, C.Jones
                  DCL, Kane, Bamford

                  Steer, Soucek, Chillwell, Mitchell

                  Nothing itb

                2. Mr_Barbs
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 2 days ago

                  Could do:

                  Chilwell > Cancelo
                  Meslier > Martinez

                  1. elwardio
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    Would go for player with big ceiling so not keeper IMO. Maybe cress and chill out and have a one week punt on TAA vs the baggies. Cancelo is a good pick as well

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

                  Saw your team in the link. Maybe Walker and chill well out and bring in Robertson/Trent and stones. If you wc next game week focus on this week’s fixture only IMO

                  1. Mr_Barbs
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 2 days ago

                    Wrong link (last seasons). Just updated it.

        Bench one of:

        A) Zouma
        B) Coufal

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

      9. Vovhund
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Dias or Matip for one week?

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Matip seems safer this week.

      10. jimmy.floyd

        Bench one
        A Chilwell

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Chilwell not playing

      11. elwardio
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Can’t decide whether to start

        Konsa (CPL) or
        Webster (whu)

        Clean sheet better chance for villa but konsa illness. Also Webster carry so much threat at set plays...

        Any views?

        1. badgerboy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Start Konsa and if he doesn't play you get Webster.

        2. Pickle juice
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          So play konsa...if he is out you have no choice to make

            • 9 Years

            That’s what I’m on. Cheers and good luck

            That’s what I was edging towards. Thanks

        A. Neto (SPUR)
        B. Giroud (ars)

        Start three of four:

        Taylor / Balbuena / Justin / Bednarek

          Bal & Bed for sure

            Cheers. I think I’ll stick with Justin as third starter. Attacking potential against a pretty poor Man United defence

        Need to sell Lamptey for a playing defender else will end up with a Newcastle defender if Chilwell is out.
        Was all set to bring in Coufal but maybe should play safe with C Taylor instead?

          I did that move this week. Not ultra confident in Taylor vs Leeds but next 2 after that he's set & forget.

        Lamptey and mahrez ——-> Matip and Torres (-4)

        Yes or no

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          aren't you likely to spend another transfer moving out Torres soon?

          1. Pickle juice
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            True

      18. Sprets
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Which 3 defenders to start?
          (Vestergaard a doubt but not sure if I should start him anyway)

          A) Dallas (BUR)
          B) Zouma (ars)
          C) Vestergaard (ful)
          D) Coufal (BHA)

          1. starmanager
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            If vestergaard is injured he dont be on the Bench even. Would start with vester zouma and dallas

            James to a City Defender? If so then which one is the most nailed?

              Have to downgrade Kane with -4 or lose KDB/Bruno

            Torn on mahrez and Dias being rotated...

              Nearly all news is saying diaz and stones and mahrez is starting. But there is a chance foden may start Ahead of mahrez. I think torres will start up front with sterling on a side.
