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)

    A: Rashford > Salah
    B: Son > Salah
    C: Keep Rash & Son. Go without Salah

      Little unsure what to do here, would be very grateful for any advice / opinions:

      A) In goal I have McCarthy (returning from covid and likely to have only 1 game v Leicester if he plays, and I think it's possible Forster may stick for a bit anyway) and Martinez (probably likely to only have 1 game and that's v City, also a possibility he's not even ready to return by then as also likely returning from covid). Should I move McCarthy to someone else (can go to Fab but if I do it'll be a second triple up which I'm reluctant to do) or hold out and play one and hope? If I move it'll be for -4

      B) If Leeds V Soton is cancelled Alioski will have 1 game v Brighton so him or Holding v Newcastle?

      C) Wanted to move Kane to Ings and then him to Vardy in a few weeks but with just the 1 game v Leicester likely for DGW, should I just go straight to Vardy (v Soton and Chelsea and decent fixtures afterwards?

        A. Would just play McCarthy, it's not the end of the world, probably not worth a hit when you can permanently play Emi after.

        B. Would play Holding personally, but only if the Saints game is confirmed off before deadline.

        C. I think Vardy is a better choice for the double and the fixtures after, just go straight to him.

            Thanks! It's much appreciated, I'll hang on with the Vardy move to see if he drops tonight but yeah I'd say you're right that I should just go for it

        From GW19 and beyond, which one do you prefer?
        A) Rashford+Son
        B) KDB+Grealish

        Grealish can be benched for Rodrigo or Holding in 19 and I would captain KDB so I'm leaning towards B

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          14 days, 1 hour ago

          Think you need to prioritise getting KDB for this week , so B

          1. Mr.K
            • 7 Years
            14 days, 1 hour ago

            I think precisely for this week Rashford + Son sounds better, but for a more long term solution I'd also go with B.

        Do people actually captain Kane? I rarely do, I cap Son, Bruno and Salah. It’s a bit hit and miss with Kane, he could be playing defensive mid for all you know. Yes he is on pens but still never really capping him, I cap Son vs teams where I think Spurs will be good on the counter. You can’t really predict Kane’s points like you can Sons

          Agree,he hasn't score a brace in while I think

          Captaincy can never be predicted. Who saw Salah's blanks vs NEW, WBA and SHU?

        3. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years

          I think I never captained Son over Kane when having both

          Perma Captain would have got you 250 points. Not too shabby

        5. NateDogsCats
            14 days, 1 hour ago

            I only brought him in for the Leeds game but took out KDB for a week specifically to make that move and I still captained Son

            I've captained Kane four times and recorded returns of 32, 12, 18 and 24 so I'm very happy that I do. Prefer him over Son for sure.

            Hmm maybe you guys had more luck with him then me, I just don’t trust him so much with the arm band. I always used to, but not convinced this season. I know he has done well but still have concerns with him. I don’t cap Son too often btw

          Morning, Any thoughts on my BB19 team? No money ITB and Balbuena needs replacing. Any good 4.4 options?

          McCarthy
          Robbo - Justin - Dallas - Stones - Balbuena
          Salah - Bruno - Son - Soucek - Rafinha
          Kane - Bamford - Adams

          1. Jet5605
            • 6 Years

            Johnstone is second GK

            Robinson FUL has 2 home games in the DGW.
            I've got Lowton but his fixtures are horrible.

              Good shout - thanks. I thought of Lowton but agree horrible fixtures. I'd like to get Dawson at West Ham but am 0.1 short

        7. Yes Ndidi

          I've kinda ended up with no MCI and a big DCL-sized problem to shift.
          Original plan was Son > KdB, DCL > Antonio/Watkins, but now priced out.
          Would you either
          A. Son > Sterling for free & carry DCL for a week
          B. Son, DCL > Sterling, Antonio -4
          C. Son, Robbo, DCL > KdB, Cancelo, 7.3 forward -8
          D. Something else?
          I'm loathed to get rid of Robbo before the double really.

          Team is currently
          Meslier
          Robbo Justin Cresswell
          Bruno Son Soucek Salah
          Bamford Vardy DCL

          McCarthy Klich KWP Lowton

          Plan was to BB, but tempted just to TC now.
          Any thoughts gratefully received. Thank you.

          Can this (-12) work out?

          Son + Kane + March + Steer - >

            Don't think so. Kane and son can haul against SHU.

                  However, looks like Shrewsbury is back training so the Leeds Soton is likely to be postponed

          I currently have 13 DGW players with money Itb to move Son >> KDB. Looks like a -4 is then needed to sort DCL to have all 15. Would you BB this or not? Few flags to the Soton lads too.

          McCarthy*(2)
          Robbo(2), Dias(2), Lowton(2)

            Not sure Rafa. If I was in your position I would BB even though I am well aware that it is a risky thing to do. Leeds may drop down to a single fixture and so can Soton. I also don't think Son is the weak link in that team to justify the Son > KDB move

              Who is the weak link?

                14 days, 1 hour ago

                No obvious weak link that doesn't involve great re-structuring. Just don't fancy losing Son is my point

                  KDB has the double and Spurs dont. Spurs then play Liverpool and KDB has West Brom in 20. Seems a logical move to me. Can always get him back

            • 2 Years
            14 days, 1 hour ago

            Based on current info then yes I would BB. If sou lose the leeds game then I'm not sure I would BB. Leeds have a better game against Brighton so I'm still considering to BB.

          Holding - Stones - KWP - Cresswell - Dias
          Bruno - Mo - KDB - Son - Soucek
          DCL - Bam Bam - Brewster

          0.4 itb, 1FT

          Thinking of Son and DCL to Rash and Anotnio

          Only issue is this would leave me triple WHU - great fixtures coming up but feels risky

          Would be bringing Son back for Rash in GW21

          Thoughts?

            Morning chaps! All early days of course and will not be doing any transfers until closer to the deadline but early thoughts on this would be appreciated.

            Martinez (Button)
            Chilwell - Dallas - Coufal (Taylor* - Ferguson*)

            A. DCL + Grealish + Chilwell > KDB(C) + Cancelo + Davis -8, exact funds
            B. Taylor > Stones, bench Dallas or Coufal and hope KDB doesn't haul

            A) Salah, Son, Brewster
            B) Salah, Rashford, Brewster
            C) Son, Rashford, Antonio

            All three play, as planning to BB.

            Thanks!

            Antonio still a viable option for the double? I see he made it through 90 mins unscathed in the cup but how did he look?

              I’ll be doing DCL to him I think

              I'm wary but I think I might do it purely because West Ham just don't have anyone else they can play and at least he got through 90.

                Lot of people here think so but depending on who exactly you're bringing in and their ceiling I think it's definitely viable

              Son to Salah & DCL to Brewster leaves me with this for the DGW for a -4, just Kane without a double in the XI.

              I know it’s early but any other moves you’d make for further hits?

                    Not great mate, not great. I will probably have to take a -8 to do DCL + Chilwell + Grealish > KDB + Cancelo + 4.3 to get some City cover. Not sure about it though.

                      Yeah would want to keep Chilwell at least, would just prioritise KdB

                Gotta hope now that Villa and Leeds keep their DGWs. Otherwise this team suddenly doesn't look so nice.

              Martinez, Messlier

              DGW19 LEE V SOU - Shrewsbury COVID situation
              I'm clinging on to the hope that LEE V SOU is not postponed and Southampton play Shrewsbury in the FA Cup instead.
              Shrewsbury Town released a statement on 11th January, they had more players testing positive and now their League One match v Lincoln on Saturday is postponed. This is 4 days before the potential rearranged FA Cup match which would see LEE V SOU removed from DGW19.
              This gives me a glimmer of hope, that they won't be able to play on Wednesday also. Is there any other news to support this?
              (Caveat all this by saying I hope those with COVID at Shrewsbury are all OK and the club finds a way to be compensated or play the match in the future)

                            Same or if I can move Harrison to another 5.4m with a double I will do but can't see anyone I like. Soucek would be the only one but I'm already triple West Ham.

                        WC in GW16. Simple plan to maximize 16 & 17 then swap players for BB in DGW burnt with postponements. Now this situation with Leeds potentially losing their 2nd fixture even though 1st game is potentially a big FPL scoring game.
                        Need a close look at Brighton tonight to see what the best way forward is.

                      A - Balbuena > Robinson

                        B but Dawson & Bobby Reid.
                        I know it's Fulham again, but they play twice from what I can see & you get your WHU defender again.

                          I think it makes sense. Although two home games they are against CHE and MANU and so Dawson will probably outscore Robinson and I'm not losing sleep about downgrading Adams.
