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)

    Can this work out?

    Rashford, Kane -> Sterling, Vardy

    1. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Extra fixture for Vardy over Kane and a stronger dgw for Sterling over Rashford. Why not?

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Could work out.

    3. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      could be good

  2. S.Kuqi

    Think I stick to the plan and bench boost these players. Happy if I get +16 points

    Martinez (mci)
    Holding (NEW)
    Coufal (BUR,WBA)
    Wood (whu,liv)

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      I can see +16 there.

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Id do it. Although replace Martinez maybe?

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Could get Mendy in for a hit. Strongly considering it

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Fabianski?

    3. Donny_Rover
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Doesn’t Martinez have Everton as well?

      1. aleksaa2
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Villa asked the league to postpone it.

    4. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Martinez has a DGW too.

      I'd expect them to get to 16 points.

      Not sure there'll be a better opportunity to bench boost this season. You have 3 DGW players. Even if a game or two is called off, the odds are still in your favour.

    5. S.Kuqi

      Cheers all

    Thoughts on this DGW team with a -4

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

    Wilson Stephens 3.9

    Leaning towards saving FH.

    1. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Solid, I'd save a FH.

  4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    4 days, 14 hours ago

    From GW19 and beyond
    A) Rashford+Son
    B) KDB+Grealish

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      B. KDB sways it for me. Only for the captaincy

  5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 4 Years
    4 days, 14 hours ago

    Thoughts on Rashford(C) for DGW19?
    No away blanks this season, won't trust him enough for TC but might captain with Bruno on 4 YC's

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Not for me

      Bruno is a clever cookie, he’ll play both

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      I like him for the double, faces Liverpool's patchwork defense and then Fulham but not enough to captain him.

    3. TLF
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Did you watch the game last night? He was quite poor imo albeit playing on his less favoured side. I got him in this week and likely selling in 19. I wouldn't captain him in those 2 away games, both are tricky ties.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        This makes me feel better bout my decision to get Sterling over Rash.

    4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Cheers guys I agree, not ideal to punt captaincy in the DGW

  6. Blue Moon Rising
    • 9 Years
    4 days, 14 hours ago

    Salah to De Bruyne for a hit?

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Thats not really ideal. You cannot tell you will outscore the other. Tough.

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      No

    3. aleksaa2
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      No, try to get both somehow.

  7. Rhodes your boat
    • 4 Years

    A) kwp to coufal
    B) yedlin to Dawson

    1. Weeb Kakashi

      B

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years

        Even if southampton lose their dgw?

        1. djaddy
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Yes, as Newcastle only play once anyway

      2. LC1
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 13 hours ago

        A

    2. waltzingmatildas

      Son and firmino to kdb and Antonio the best move here?

      Mccarthy johnstone

        Sounds good of you trust in Antonio's minutes over the two games.

    3. squits

      4 days, 14 hours ago

      Theyre talking about social distancing when scoring goals. But why does no-one mention managers and coaches all shaking hands at the end of the match?

      1. bitm2007
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Yes all show a bad example. If they continue to ignore direct advice form the government, the PL will grind to a halt again.

    4. Mufc202020
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 14 hours ago

      If you had unlimited money in FPL but you could only have one player from each team. Who would you pick for Spurs?
      A) Son
      B) Kane

      1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        B

      2. Weeb Kakashi
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        B

      3. Gunner Boy
        • 6 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        B

        1. djaddy
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            B, due to the relative dearth of forwards

        2. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Son. Fits better given other options.

          Pope, Darlow
          Digne, Tierney, Chilwell, Creswell, Saiss
          KDB, Bruno, Salah, Son, Grealish
          Vardy, Ings, Bamford

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

          Kane because consistent strikers are much harder to come by than mids.

      4. Tosa86
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        My actual WC draft::

        Martinez - Button
        dallas - cancelo - WalkerPeters - cresswell - struijk
        kdb - fernando - son - soucek - smith rowe
        vardy - kane - bamford

        any suggestion?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Would squeeze in another GK and try to upgrade Struijk

      5. Hryszko
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Who would you replace DCL with for the DGW? Got 7.7m itb..

        1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Antonio

        2. Mufc202020
          • 1 Year
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Antonio imo

        3. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Bamford Antonio from the lower brackets.
          Can stretch to Ings?

          1. Hryszko
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Can't stretch without making multiple transfers 🙁

        4. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Antonio

      6. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        6 captain fails out of 17 till now. And the player who has failed me the most - Mo Salah!

        1. Booked4Dissent
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          That’s not even bad. Even 50% fail is alright

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            True, but the theory "if not sure, captain Salah" is probably not correct. He btw, was leading all captain polls in those GWs.

            1. Flair
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              4 days, 14 hours ago

              Salah was the best captaincy choice against West Brom and a very good one against Newcastle. Absolutely nothing wrong with those picks.

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 4 Years
                4 days, 14 hours ago

                Right. Now when I look at the list and the opponents, none of them were bad choices. And in the case of Salah, he was the stand out option.

        2. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          3 for me. Salah too though KDB could join him today.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            KDB is on fire. I am fearing my decision to move the armband from him to Kane might hurt me bigtime this GW. Especially because I only have 8 playing.

        3. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          9 for me. Including all of the last 5.

          1. Mr. O'Connell
            • 8 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            FYI if you've captained KDB this week, you're not getting anything.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 14 hours ago

              Why's that?

              1. Flair
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                4 days, 14 hours ago

                He captained him. I am now in deep regret.

                1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                  • 4 Years
                  4 days, 14 hours ago

                  Hahaha! Ok. I thought even he fell for that KDB "benched" story.

                2. Mr. O'Connell
                  • 8 Years
                  4 days, 14 hours ago

                  Bruno (shu)
                  Kane (LEI)
                  Salah (WBA)
                  Salah (new)
                  Salah (sot)

                  Just a solitary clean sheet point to show from that lot.

          2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Bad run there!

        4. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          5 for me, Kane and Salah with 2 each and KDB with the other.

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Not bad at all!

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

          His 2 & 3 pointers vs (SHU, WBM, new) were just textbook Salah

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

            The games where all of us expected him to score hatties!

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

          I have 7 fails

          Salah - 3 fails (Out of 6 - 50% Success)
          KDB - 2 fails (Out of 4 - 50% Success)
          Son - 2 fails (Out of 4 - 50% Success)

          So it's been quite balanced for me
          Bruno has had 100% success for the 2 times I captained him

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

            Bruno has always delivered when you have expected him to. Who is your captain this GW?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 12 hours ago

              KDB, just want to raise his ratio of success

              1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
                • 4 Years
                4 days, 12 hours ago

                I has it on him till the last second. Moved it to Kane.

        What would you change in that BB GW 19 team?
        Son to Kdb and DCL to someone?

          Could you lend me the DGWer that you don't use please?

          (And I'd play 2)

        Johnstones / DDG
        Stones/Coufal/Cancelo/AWB/Dier
        Smith Rowe/Bruno/Son/KDB/Soucek
        Kane/Wilson/Antonio

        Want to Bench Boost
        Original plan was to do the following
        Kane + Son to Salah + Bamford for -4

        Should I go ahead with this? Note after doing this I will have around 1.5 itb

        If I do DCL > Antonion I can have this team for the DGW19... all of my players on DGW bar Dier, Kane and Holding, is it definitely the best time for me to play my BB?

        Martinez
        Dier | Stones | Holding
        Salah | KDB | Bruno | Soucek
        Antonio | Bamford | Kane

        Bench: Meslier | Dallas | Coufal | Anguissa

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!

          Absolutely!

          1. Hryszko
            • 3 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Sweet!! Would mean they're all on DGW's, I was thinking about Triple captaining KDB.. but think I'll keep hold of that chip!

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 14 hours ago

              Kane vs SHU, Holding vs NEW and Dier vs SHU will probably give you more points than KDB TC.

            2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              4 days, 14 hours ago

              And what Hot Toddy wrote, wait for AVL and LEE news. But if all DGWs happening as per schedule, press BB.

        2. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          No, there's nothing definite about it at all. Two dgw fixtures might be postponed. I would save the chip for later.

        3. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Looks like you'll be losing 4 DGWers.

        Indeed it was a bad idea to double up on Utd attack
        Rashford was enough

        1. Goonerly
          • 3 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          But going without Bruno would have seemed mental.
          I'm just happy Rash returned.

        2. Van der Faart
          • 9 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          More annoyed at myself for playing Saiss over AWB than anything else.

        3. Caravagio
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Could have gone either way

      12. Van der Faart
        • 9 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Thoughts on DGW team?

        Martinez/McCarthy
        Holding Cresswell Dias (Taylor James)
        Bruno Salah Son Soucek (Riedwald)
        Kane Bamford Adams

        0.7ITB

        A) James to Dallas (if Leeds have DGW)
        B) Adams to Watkins
        C) Salah to KDB, Adams to Watkins (-4)
        D) something else

        1. LC1
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 13 hours ago

          As far as I'm aware, Villa DGW likely to be cancelled too and made into a single game against just City away?

          1. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Yeah a lot will depend on that. Could have just a SGW keeper if Saints v Leeds is moved too

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

          I think I would do Adams to Antonio and Holding to Stones.

          1. Van der Faart
            • 9 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Unfortunately .1 short of that at the moment.

        Morning,

        Can put this team out in the DGW with a -4... anything you'd change?

        Martinez
        Cresswell - Dallas - Justin
        Salah - KDB - Sterling - Bruno - Soucek
        Antonio - Bamford

        1. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          BTW

          Becnh is Steer / Wood - Taylor - Mitchell

        2. Weeb Kakashi
          • 4 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Strong. Quite similar to mine.
          I got Son Cancelo Cresswell instead of Salah Soucek Justin.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            AWB* not Cresswell

        3. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Thanks. I have Son currently but considering the -4 for Sterling.

          I think this move looks good not only for the double but for the next few City fixtures.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Id do it.

        4. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years

          Starting to think I may have to replace Martinez also....

      14. Weeb Kakashi
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 14 hours ago

        Anyone tempted by KDB(TC) .
        I have Sterling too. His explosiveness is tempting.

        1. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          No.

          1. Weeb Kakashi
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 14 hours ago

            Home fixtures to Palace who are terrible .
            Villa might not have their best XI too.

            Going by fixtures thats one of the best fixture set.

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

              It's decent but I have a sense that there will be better opportunities down the line. Can't knock it though, especially if he looks great vs Brighton, that Palace fixture is very targetable.

        2. Hot Toddy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          As things stand, yes, I'm going for it.

        3. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          I am strongly considering this. Two decent fixtures. Will see how City look tonight and then decide.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          4 days, 14 hours ago

          Extremely tempted

          That guy is easily 30-40 points behind where he should be at this stage... catch-up imminent

          Doubt over the Villa fixture is the wrinkle - might be postponed or voided etc

          1. Hot Toddy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Visions of a 75pt mega haul. Hopefully there's no cancellations.

          When will we know about DGW 26 fixtures? Seriously considering avoiding the -8, TCing KdB and saving the BB for later. Will have WC to plan it then as well.

          When AV be able to play all these fixtures if Everton postponed as well? Can PL reject their request based on,this? As I remember no team got more than 1 postponement due to COVID

            Not a problem for Villa as they’re not in Europe. Different situation for City, United and Spurs.

        • Goonerly

          4 days, 13 hours ago

          How does this team look for the DGW?

          Pope
          Tierney - Targett - Robbo - Dier
          Bruno - Salah - Son
          Bamford - Adams - Watkins

          Considering doing a -4 move:
          A) Targett + Son --> Coufal & KdB
          B) Tierney + Son --> Stones & KdB
          C) Adams + Son --> Antonio & KdB (depending on Adams fitness)

          Steer + Grealish + Kane + son TO
          Johnstone + Salah + Vardy + Soucek

          (-12)

          Good?

          I’ve already taken a -8. Is it worth doing Adams -> Antonio for another -4?

          Martinez Steer
          Chilwell Cancelo Coufal Dallas KWP
          Salah KDB Bruno Son Soucek
          Adams Bamford Watkins

            If Adams plays Leeds he could haul. Antonio might not be risked in both games. I wouldn't for a hit.

          Thoughts please on my team and potential Cavani move.
          Fab
          TAA - Chil - Dallas - KWP
          Son - Bruno - Salah - Soucek
          Kane - Bam
          Nyland, DCL, Struijk, Bissouma

          0.2 itb, 1 FT.

          Ok no city which is an issue but no realistic way to get KDB so think i just have to skirt that issue for now.
          For a -4 what do you think of the following?
          DCL>Cavani + Chilwell>Cancelo/Diaz
          DCL>Cavani + Bissouma>Smith-Rowe

          I’m 0.1 short of the straight DCL>Cavani move so it has to include one of the others. KWP will then move to my bench for Cavani

          1. Hot Toddy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            4 days, 13 hours ago

            Going into a dgw without City players and you're thinking about Cavani. Atrocious planning.

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

              Lol so tell me how I would get a City in then? I rip up my team and take a -12?
              I obviously am not doing that, DCL>Cavani is a smart move as it’s moving on DCL who is crocked

              1. Hot Toddy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                4 days, 13 hours ago

                We've had plenty of time to alter strategy and adjust to the City dgw. You can still get De Bruyne in two moves if you'd just use your noggin. Could get double City attack in three moves. It's really not that difficult.

                1. Hot Toddy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 2 Years
                  4 days, 13 hours ago

                  Or one defender + De Bruyne in three moves. Whatever. Simple.

                2. Trophé Mourinho
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 1 Year
                  4 days, 13 hours ago

                  So you are basically saying move on another big hitter to fund KDB and then in two weeks I’m asking how I get Kane back?
                  Because that’s the only way..
                  You must be familiar with the term you can’t have them all right.
                  So essentially suggesting a sideways move and dismissing a profitable move (Cavani) as poor planning? Ok then

                  1. El Lobito 10
                    • 3 Years
                    4 days, 13 hours ago

                    Personally I would do Salah to KdB. Salah will probably do ok but Liverpool have a tough fixture run now and Salah isn't worth the 12.5m he costs. KdB golden fixtures plus form

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

                    Haven't mentioned Kane or anyone else for that matter. The route to De Bruyne is simple but good luck with the Cavani punt.

                3. El Lobito 10

                  4 days, 13 hours ago

                    Just pointing out the obvious.

                      Lol ur not pointing out an obvious move, you’re alluding to one.
                      Thanks for your input though, provokes thought either way.
