Blades defence finally records clean sheet as Wilson blanks again

Sheffield United 1-0 Newcastle

  • Goals: Billy Sharp (£5.5m)
  • Assists: None
  • Bonus points: Ethan Ampadu x3 (£4.3m), Aaron Ramsdale x2 (£4.7m), Sharp x1

Sheffield United finally showed some of the form of last season to record their first win over the season over a poor Newcastle side.

A penalty club legend Billy Sharp (£5.5m) controversially awarded by VAR was enough to give them the 1-0 win.

Free Hitters plumping for Newcastle assets like Karl Darlow (£5.0m) and Callum Wilson (£6.6m) in Blank Gameweek 18 will be fuming at the Magpies display, who were vulnerable at the back and toothless up front.

The performance was made even worse by Ryan Fraser (£5.6m) getting sent off in the first half for two bookable offences. But the Toon were poor even with 11 men on the pitch.

Owners of premium assets looking to target the Blades may also be having second thoughts after a much improved performance.

Battling Blades

Chris Wilder’s backline which was a staple of so many manager’s teams last year has been rightly avoided this season, conceding the third-highest amount of goals in the Premier League.

The Blades had been without a clean sheet all season, and conceded goals to some of the league’s weakest attacks.

Even their last four games where they played Crystal Palace, Burnley and Brighton yielded no clean sheet returns.

But, albeit it against a poor Newcastle team, their defence looked well organised and was barely troubled all game.

Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu (£4.3m) scooped the maximum bonus after a strong defensive display. He may even have picked up an assist had Oliver Burke’s (£4.3m) touch not deserted him when going through on goal.

Aaron Ramsdale (£4.7m), who has received a lot of stick since returning to the club from Bournemouth, looked assured between the sticks as he collected two bonus points.

And had Karl Darlow (£5.0m) not been at his best, then wing-back Jayden Bogle (4.3m) would also have added to his goal tally.

Chris Wilder praised his side for their battling display, while playing down any talk of a great escape.

Regardless of what people say about Newcastle, you look at their team and they’ve got some good players, they’ve got some fabulous players off the bench and they’re an established Premier League side and we’re not. They’re established Premier League players and our players aren’t and they’re fighting for their lives and I think you saw that tonight. You saw a team that was fighting for their lives that was brave enough to play as well in and out of possession, stuff was good.”

Chris Wilder

Ogle Bogle

With Sam Baldock (£5.0m) injured, Bogle looks to have nailed down the right wing-back berth at Sheffield United and has put in some eye-catching displays.

The former Derby man bombed down the right hand side and had two attempts in the box well saved by Darlow.

On Tuesday evening, only Anthony Martial (£8.8m) had a higer expected goals tally than Bogle, without scoring.

Add this to his goal and all-round attacking display at Brighton, Bogle could be worth considering once the Blades’ fixtures clear up.

Time up for Bruce?

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle have remained bottom of most stats tables throughout the season.

The Magpies managed to defy the stats and the eye test in the first half of the campaign, picking up some impressive results along the way.

But it appears that these performances are coming home to roost.

The loss to the Blades means no wins in six now for the Geordies, who are sliding worryingly towards a relegation battle.

Fans are now calling for manager Bruce’s head, after watching their side being outplayed by all the bottom three.

But a clearly dejected Bruce quickly confirmed he would not be resigning in the wake of this result.

“Look, you’re asking the wrong person about that. I’ll never, ever walk away from a challenge and I’ve been in it long enough to have that respect. But I understand that, especially watching the first half, we weren’t good enough and at the end of the day I take the responsibility because I pick the team.”

Steve Bruce

Wilsooooooooooooon

Newcastle’s star striker has now gone four games without delivering any FPL returns.

Take penalties out of the equation, and Wilson has not scored since Newcastle’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace back in Gameweek 10.

Part of this is the fault of his teammates and their tactical set-up, with Wilson appearing lonelier than Tom Hanks’ ball for huge parts of the game.

With his side having so little possession, Wilson is often seen drifting back towards his own goal in search of the ball.

But the striker is also starting to miss big chances which he was gobbling up earlier in the season.

The Toon’s only big chance of the game fell to the hitman, who headed wide from close range.

With Wilson shy of goals and service, he no longer looks to be a viable FPL asset.

Newcastle United XI (5-4-1): Darlow; Yedlin (Murphy 84), Fernandez (Carroll 77), Schar, Clark, Dummett (Ritchie 74) Hendrick, Hayden, Longstaff, Fraser, Wilson

Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Ramsdale; Bogle, Basham (Brewster 51), Ampadu, Egan, Osborn; Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood; McGoldrick (Jagielka 94), Burke (Sharp 59)

    Would you BB this? Could take a hit to get Antonio for Adams

    Areola/Johnstone Dier Bamford Adams

    1. Sco
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Yeah probably and I'd do the Antonio move too.

    2. Ruth_NZ
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Why would you even be asking? The answer is obviously yes.

      Adams ➡ Antonio is certainly worth a hit if Southampton's double is lost.

        Is that official now LEE-SOU postponed?

  2. LarryJunior

    Need help with this one: 3,5 ITB and 1 FT.

    Martinez
    Coufal, Robertson, Dias, Taylor, Mitchell
    Son,Grealish,Salah,Bruno,Raphina,
    Bamford,DCL,Brewster

    A: DCL-Grealish -> KDB-Antonio
    B: DCL-> Any striker
    C: WC (lot of issues imo, Aston Villa-games?, Taylor injury, Mitchell, DCL, Brewster)
    D: Other?

    1. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      A for sure

  3. RedWolf
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 days, 13 hours ago

    Pick one for dgw: Martial Or Cavani

    1. Sco
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Didn't Martial come off injured last night? I don't really like either, Martial misses too many chances but he's probably more nailed on to start both than Cavani is.

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Neither tbh but Cavani if I had to

    3. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Neither. I would rather Antonio.

  4. Nightcrawler
    • 1 Year

    Cup tie not looking too promising

    Him: KDB, Jesus, Lloris + 13

    Me: Kane ×2, Dier, Mitchell

  5. Rochdale_Cowboy

    KDB owners in for some bad news later.

    1. Nightcrawler
      • 1 Year

      Why?

    2. Sco
      • 7 Years

      It's too early for the trolling mate come on!

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      We all know what Salah did when he was benched. Even if he is, 30 minutes of him on the pitch can be 1 G 1 A and 3 bonus.

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        Kdb is no salah

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          And you too think he will be benched?

          1. StayoutheSpiceZone
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            100% he will start. City smell blood

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 13 hours ago

              Yes he will. Liverpool slagging a bit has given City a huge opportunity.

          2. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            There is no chance he gets benched. No need to feed the troll.

          3. Nightcrawler
            • 1 Year

            No i think he starts

        You can't ban someone for a prediction as uncomfortable as it may feel :(.

    1. Weeb Kakashi

      Not happening

    2. Geriatric Unathletic

  8. Mufc202020

    Neto & Kane > Salah & Antonio for a hit in time for the double gameweek???

  9. Little Red Lacazette
    • 4 Years
    4 days, 13 hours ago

    Is Antonio fit? Want to get him for DCL.

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Yes he is fit.

    2. Sco
      • 7 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Yes and they just sold Haller so he's their only striker now. Should be nailed for the next few weeks until the hammy goes again.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        "...until the hammy goes again." Lol. Have faith.

  10. Nightcrawler

    Those that didnt FH this week,

    Which chip are u using next gw? Or none at all

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      None, or maybe TC

    2. Hiddenpaw
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      I didn’t use FH. Planning on bench boost if Leeds do have their double. TC if it’s off.

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        TC on who?

    3. Karhumies
      • 8 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      BB19

    4. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Tempted by the TC on the double game week. Potentially on KDB/Salah/Bruno

    5. StayoutheSpiceZone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      I didn't free hit. I am not planning on using one next week (perhaps TC on KDB)

    6. NateDogsCats
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        Probably none, would have considered BB but the likelihood of the Leeds v Soton and Villa v Everton games being postponed means it's not worth it, and to be honest things have been so messy lately that even if both were on I think I'd just leave it anyway

      • KUN+10
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 12 hours ago

        TC KDB. Need to wait until last min, but thats the plan for now

    7. londontom
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Would you save your BB with this team? 1FT available.

      Martinez
      Cancelo, Coufal, Justin, Walker-Peters
      Sterling, Fernandes, Salah, Raphinha, Sterling
      Kane

      All have a double gameweek except Kane and that leaves double Targett on the bench. I'm tempted to go mental and sell Kane + bench goalie and striker for doublers (-8 points) - depending on what happens in tonight's games - and whip out my monstrous BBC*.

      *bench boost chip

      1. Karhumies
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        Absolutely no idea who are on your bench, so can't comment on your BB plans.

        1. londontom
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 12 hours ago

          Button, Targett, Maupay, Brewster. Button and Brewster would make room for someone decent in with the funds from selling Kane.

          Also there's a mistake in the XI. Should be: Sterling, Fernandes, Salah, Raphinha, Lookman

          1. Karhumies
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 12 hours ago

            I would not BB that. Takes too many hits to have a fully playing bench. TC seems better. If you have your WC intact, you can WC into BB later in the season.

    8. balint84
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      A) Stones
      B) Coufal
      C) Coufal, Dias -4

      1. Sco
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        C

    9. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 13 hours ago

      Mane, DCL & Kilman to KDB, Antonio & Coufal worth a -8?

      Can bench Grealish and will hopefully have 10 DGW players (except GK) assuming Villa vs Everon is off and Leeds vs Soton is on.

      In any case im not keen on selling Raphinha & Bamford even if they dont have a DGW as they face Brighton at home.

      1. Sco
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        -8 is risky but they're good moves. I took my first ever -8 earlier this season and scored 90+ points so it can pay off.

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Cheers mate!

          Tbh I feel there is a very small chance of these moves backfiring specially if I captain KDB.

          1. Flynny
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 11 hours ago

            Would you consider bench boosting the Leeds players v Brighton?

    10. Weeb Kakashi
      • 4 Years

      Thoughts on this DGW team with a -4

      Areola
      Cancelo Cresswell AWB Dallas
      KDB(C) Raz Bruno Son
      Antonio Bamford

      Dier Benteke.

      Leaning towards saving FH.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years

        Save

      2. Sco
        • 7 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        I like it although the lack of Liverpool attack is risky IMO.

      Is àdams ready for dgw?

      1. NateDogsCats
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Should be fine, was out of last game due to concussion so unless it was really severe he should be back and well rested up which he needed too

        • stu92
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          He may not have a DGW any more, not confirmed but likely the game against Leeds will be rearranged.

          1. akhilrajau
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Oww so leeds also have one game? I am having adams in my bb team so confused

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 12 hours ago

              Correct. I have 6 players in my BB team that are supposed to have doubles but may not any more.

              1. akhilrajau
                • 2 Years

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        This Leeds game being rearranged is a real pain. Have worked transfers over recent weeks to have three Leeds players in my team for BB next week, and it now appears to have been in vain!

        1. Mufc202020
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Is this confirmed??

          1. stu92
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Not confirmed, but both teams and the FA seem open to the idea. I guess it would only not happen if the PL dug their heels in.

        2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Will happen the entire season. I had planned to have 10 in BGW and 11 in DGW. Ended up with 8 in BGW and if Villa COVID continues and Leeds don't have DGW, will have 9 for DGW.

          1. stu92
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            That’s still not bad going, assuming with all chips still available? I was planning on BB for the double but may hold it depending on the fixtures.

        Early thoughts

        how to get KDB in this team ? 1FT, 0.9 itb

        Martinez
        Coufal Dallas Stones Justin
        Son Bruno Salah Grealish
        Kane Bamford

        subs: Steer DCL Bissouma Mitchell

        DCL + Grealish + Martinez > Davis + KDB + Areola for -8?

        1. stu92
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Salah > KDB is a much easier route

          1. Gunner Boy
            • 6 Years
            4 days, 12 hours ago

            I don't think this is the best solution
            Risky going without Liverpool attackers

            1. stu92
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 12 hours ago

              Just not a fan of -8, and you also are left with a pretty weak bench which is not ideal this season. But I suppose the players you’re losing are the best options then.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        How can someone say FH’ers have failed? Surely its an individual case for the player, how their team would have performed vs their free hit team. So far my FH team is 14 points up on my normal team with 8 including (c) to go. So far, my FH is incredibly successful.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Ive got 12 points from 2 players (Wan B & Rash) I definitely wouldn't have had on my original team.
          Definitely not a fail for me till now.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Got 10 points from three, if no FH that would be 2, half way to +20 points

        3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          Did not FH but agree with you. It's all team dependent.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          I free hitted early and gained 45 points on my original team, that’s not a fail...

            Agreed. Too many people fishing for reactions and not enough people offering genuine advice.

        Is Grealish and Kane to Salah and Antonio for a -4 the best move here? 1.4 ITB

        Martinez
        Cancelo Stones Coufal (Dier) (KWP)
        KDB Bruno Son Grealish Soucek
        Kane Bamford (Wilson)

        Yay/ Nay ?

          I’m looking at Antonio also but hesitant given his lack of minutes recently. Assuming he’s playing though it makes sense.

        which moves please

        Mendy
        Cancelo-Stones-Justin-Konza
        Bruno-Salah-Son-KDB
        Bam-Adams

        Forster-Wilson-Mitchell-Burke

        would look to replace in the strating XI (Konza +Adams)

        a) Wilson + Burke > Rodrigo + Soucek (-4)
        b) Konza + Wilson > Coufal + Antonio (-4)
        c) Wilson > Antonio
        d) Konza > Coufal
        e) anything else you recommend.

        Thanks in advance

          All are good options maybe C

          C is good, but I'd be maybe more tempted to do a B. If Eve vs Villa is off. Konsa only has City. I think Coufal transfer can pay off.

            thanks both.

            Yes i like see. but really tempted by Soucek

              4 days, 12 hours ago

              He is also a very good option, but I personally wouldn't touch Rodrigo at all and he could have a SGW.

        This year is my worst ranking since I started to play 7 years ago..

        Currently 2 023 943... Captain choices are horrible from GW1 to today:

        GW1: Aubameyang 7
        GW2: Fernandes 2
        GW3: De Bruyne 2
        GW4: De Bruyne 2
        GW5: Salah 7
        GW6: Kane 5
        GW7: Kane 6
        GW8: Kane 9
        GW9: Grealish 1
        GW10: De Bruyne 10
        GW11: De Bruyne 14
        GW12: Kane 9
        GW13: Fernandes 2
        GW14: Kane 2
        GW15: Salah 2
        GW16: Salah 3
        GW17: Kane 12
        GW18: Fernandes 2

        Is anyone did worst? What’s your current ranking?

          That's pretty shocking. But I'm still ranked below you (3.3m) due to no Salah in GW1, a misplaced WC in gw3, over reliance on a poor city side in the first half of the season and having been severely affected by every single postponement so far.

          Hoping my luck will turn for the rest of the season and I can make top 100k

        Have Stones and Coufal in my defense playing two games next GW. Who else for 5.3 or below? Dallas is an option but we are not sure if he will have a DGW.

                Creswell also an option, maybe. The only thing is I am always a bit apprehensive about doubling up in defense.

                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  4 days, 12 hours ago

                  Cresswell is over 5.3 now

                  Yes double will be a problem that’s why I went flappy/areola and coufal on wc

                  Wait for news and get Dallas/kwp if game is on

        Do you think Man City v Villa is in danger of cancellation?

          Probably not as Villa training ground will open on Saturday so there is enough time to prepare for the City game.

        The group hugs after goals in all three PL games last night, despite being warned not to do it, were disgraceful. The refs need to start booking them, if something's not done about it the PL will grind to a halt again.

          Every player on the pitch has tested negative for Covid before that match, correct?

            That doesn't mean that don't have. It takes a few days to show up in a test.

        If it wasn't for captaincy I would have strongly considered a City defensive Triple-up from 20-22

        Sounds crazy but really think a City defender matches KDB in that period

      13. akhilrajau

        Martinez, Johnstone
        Robortson, Coufal, Dallas, Maguire, Mitchell
        Bruno, Son, Salah, Soucek, Podence
        Adams, Kane, Bamford
        bank: 1.1m, FT: 1
        please suggest for BB Team

        A. Son, Podence, Kane, Adams -> KDB, Grealish, Antonio, Watkins / Wood(-12)
        B. Son, Podence, Kane, Adams -> KDB, El Ghazi/Raphina, Antonio/Watkins, Ings(-12)

        Mitchell only have one game. i dont want to -4 agin for him

        1. NateDogsCats
            4 days, 12 hours ago

            You'll have to wait to see what's happening with Villa and Southampton games, if they're both off then you're down 4 players with doubles to singles

          • Donny_Rover
            • 5 Years
            4 days, 12 hours ago

            I would keep Son if you can afford it - he has a good fixture so not sure if Grealish would outscore him by 4. Not sure about the wisdom of selling Adams either unless you hear news he’s out. Does Podence & Kane -> KDB & Antonio/Rodrigo work?

            1. akhilrajau
              • 2 Years
              4 days, 12 hours ago

              Unfortunately no if i get kdb instead of podence i have 4.5 m only.. anyway i also like to keep son but can't afford kdb . Will wait

          Current team for GW19:

          Meslier, Martinez
          TAA, Robertson, Dias, Stones, Coufal
          Salah, Fernandes, Grealish, Soucek, Bissouma
          Kane, Adams, Bamford

          What’s the best route to KDB (2 FTs)? Planning to bench boost.

          A) Kane/TAA/Bissouma -> Antonio/Justin/KDB (exact cash)
          B) Kane/Grealish/Bissouma -> Antonio/Harrison/KDB
          C) Same as A, but Rodrigo instead of Antonio
          D) Same as A, but KWP instead of Justin
          E) Anything else?

          Leaning towards A at the moment, let’s me put 15 out all with 2 games (assuming Adams is fit), and I’m not overly confident in the double Liverpool defence.

          AWB think he is 5.3 ManU fixtures not optimal though

            Considering the news last week that a decision would be made on the Southampton - Rotherham game "early next week" I do have to wonder what their definition of "early" is

              Shrewsbury players will be tested during the weekend, so monday at latest, because if that game is off. Soton vs Leeds is 100% and that game is scheduled for Wednesday.
