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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Could work out.

    3. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      could be good

  2. S.Kuqi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    8 months, 6 days ago

    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!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      I can see +16 there.

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Id do it. Although replace Martinez maybe?

      1. S.Kuqi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Could get Mendy in for a hit. Strongly considering it

        1. Weeb Kakashi
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Fabianski?

    3. Donny_Rover
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Doesn’t Martinez have Everton as well?

      1. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Villa asked the league to postpone it.

    4. Fit of Pique
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      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
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Solid, I'd save a FH.

  4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  5. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Not for me

      Bruno is a clever cookie, he’ll play both

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days 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
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

    4. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  6. Blue Moon Rising
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Salah to De Bruyne for a hit?

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      No

    3. aleksaa2
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      No, try to get both somehow.

  7. Rhodes your boat
    • 5 Years

    A) kwp to coufal
    B) yedlin to Dawson

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years

      B

      1. Rhodes your boat
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Even if southampton lose their dgw?

        1. djaddy
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Yes, as Newcastle only play once anyway

    2. LC1
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      A

  8. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years

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

    Mccarthy johnstone
    Robbo cancelo dallas coufal taylor
    Salah Bruno son raphina soucek
    Bamford Wood firmino

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

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

  9. squits
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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.

  10. Mufc202020
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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★⚔
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      B

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      B

    3. Mr Ozil
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      B

      1. djaddy
        8 months, 6 days ago

        B, due to the relative dearth of forwards

    4. Mr. O'Connell
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Son. Fits better given other options.

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

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  11. Tosa86
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Would squeeze in another GK and try to upgrade Struijk

  12. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. ⚔★Vibudh★⚔
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Antonio

    2. Mufc202020
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Antonio imo

    3. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Can't stretch without making multiple transfers 🙁

    4. Hot Toddy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Antonio

  13. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 6 days 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!
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 6 days 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
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      9 for me. Including all of the last 5.

      1. Mr. O'Connell
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          Why's that?

          1. Flair
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 6 days ago

            He captained him. I am now in deep regret.

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 6 days ago

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

            2. Mr. O'Connell
              • 9 Years
              8 months, 6 days 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!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Bad run there!

    4. Van der Faart
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Not bad at all!

    5. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

    6. umerlfc
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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!
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

        1. umerlfc
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days ago

          KDB, just want to raise his ratio of success

          1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

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

  14. konrad.sygula95
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    Martinez
    Dier/Justin/Cancelo
    Son/Fernandes/Salah/Grealish
    Watkins/DCL/Bamford

    Bench: Forster/KWP/Anguissa/Taylor
    1ft 2.2 itb

  15. Booked4Dissent
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Which would you play in DGW 19?
    1) Justin (Sou, Che)
    2) Antonio (Bur, Wba)

    ?

    1. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      2

      1. aleksaa2
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        2

    2. LC1
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      (And I'd play 2)

      1. Booked4Dissent
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Haha, sure dude

  16. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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

  17. Hryszko
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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!
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Absolutely!

      1. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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!
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days 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!
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 6 days 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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Looks like you'll be losing 4 DGWers.

  18. Peter Ouch
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Goonerly
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    2. Van der Faart

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

    3. Caravagio
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Could have gone either way

    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
      8 months, 6 days 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
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Unfortunately .1 short of that at the moment.

  20. CONNERS
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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
      8 months, 6 days ago

      BTW

      Becnh is Steer / Wood - Taylor - Mitchell

    2. Weeb Kakashi
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        AWB* not Cresswell

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        Id do it.

    4. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  21. Weeb Kakashi
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      No.

      1. Weeb Kakashi
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 6 days 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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    3. CONNERS
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 6 days 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
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

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

    5. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Yep

    6. insertcomedyname
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Tempting. Might there be a triple gameweek for someone later in the season?

  22. Jdpz
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Pope Johnstone
    Cancelo Justn Dier Ayling Coufal
    Salah Mane Bruno Raphinha Soucek
    Martial Wood Bamford

    1ft., 0.2m in the bank --- Bench Boost in 19 gw

    What to do?

    1. Hot Toddy
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Nothing until Saturday morning.

      1. LC1
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 6 days ago

        This^

  23. umerlfc
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    Which pair scores more in the current week?

    A) Son + Stones
    B) Sterling + Lloris

    1. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 6 days ago

      B

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      B if Sterling starts

  24. Chandler Bing
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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.

    1. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Once we know the FF Cup quarter-finalists, ie before the GW24 deadline.

  25. Lucky Z
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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

    1. Lord.
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  26. Goonerly
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days 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)

  27. Hakaei lali
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

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

    (-12)

    Good?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Bad. Very bad. Very, very bad.

    2. elwardio
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

      Just do grealish to soucek

  28. El Lobito 10
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    When will we know if Leeds double is on or off?

    Wabt to pull trigger on Neto and Dier to Rash and Strujik

  29. merin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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

    0 FT, 0.2 ITB

    1. grumpyman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

  30. have you seen cyan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 6 days ago

    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
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 6 days ago

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

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 6 days 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
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 6 days 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
            • 3 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

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

          2. have you seen cyan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            8 months, 6 days 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
              • 4 Years
              8 months, 6 days 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
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 6 days 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 Years
            8 months, 6 days ago

            Stop being so condescending

            1. Hot Toddy
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 6 days ago

              Just pointing out the obvious.

              1. have you seen cyan
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years
                8 months, 6 days ago

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