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)

    (Steer, Bednarek, Brewster, Douglas)

    A) Stick

    (No BB)

    Cheers.

      A for certain

      1. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Cheers. I was really keen to get 3 City in but given Zouma has DGW and Stones rarely gets attacking returns I guess A makes sense. When I originally planned this, I could afford Cancelo...

    2. BooYaKasha
      • 9 Years
      13 days, 23 hours ago

      C is tempting, but a luxury move

      1. Catastrophe
        • 10 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Cheers. Yes, I think I may do this assuming Soton don't have a DGW as from memory their fixtures are going downhill too

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      I'd stick with that tbh mate

      1. Catastrophe

        Ta.

        Cheers, yep it assumes it will be.

    Morning all. Apologies for the longish post!

    Original plan was to play BB in GW19. However now with my team back in front of me (after FH) it's not looking so rosy:
    * Triple Leeds + Double SOU - with good chance of only having a single match (BHA/ lei)
    * No KDB
    * No second GK

    With 0.2itb and 1FT what's my best move here?

    A) Kane, Son, Forster > Vardy, Rashford, Fabianski (-8)
    B) Son, Kane, Forster > KDB, Antonio, Fabianski (-8) +1.8itb
    C) Kane, Adams, Forster > Vardy, Antonio, Johnstone (-8)
    D) Adams > Antonio (FT)
    E) Kane > Vardy (FT)
    F) Something else!

    In D and E I'd probably have to give up on BB

    Martinez (x2?), Forster*
    Robbo (x2), Dias (x2), Coufal (x2), Dallas (x2?), KWP (x2?)
    Salah (x2), Bruno (x2), Son, Soucek (x2), Raphinha (x2?)
    Kane, Bamford (x2?), Adams (x2?)

    Cheers all

    1. Catastrophe
      • 10 Years
      13 days, 23 hours ago

      Probably D or E. The others could all pay off but in general I'm against tearing a Team apart for a single GW especially with the obvious added risks.

      1. Don Kloppeone
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        So you think no BB at all for me?

        Thanks for the reply

        1. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Would probably avoid on the assumption Southampton and Leeds don't have DGW. In principle it should be saved until you have a full bench of DGWers. Also can't help but think with fixtures close together in the DGW all it takes is one Team to have an outbreak and then you could be looking at them going from two fixtures to zero. You may find your strong bench gets called upon regardless of BB.

  3. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    13 days, 23 hours ago

    Assuming the SOU/LEE DGW will become a SGW, team below with [CAPS] having doubles:

    McCarthy
    ROBERTSON / CANCELO / COUFAL
    SALAH / FERNANDES / Son / SOUCEK
    VARDY / Bamford / Calvert-Lewin

    Forster // Raphinha / TAYLOR / Alioski

    I'll likely move DCL onto someone like Antonio. Leeds have a decent fixture anyway, but think BB would be wasted, considering I'd have to do:
    - DCL > [Other]
    - Forster > [Other] (-4)
    - And other changes?

    1. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 23 hours ago

      If McCarthy is fit that team looks okay for BB for a -4 imo.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Hmm, I'm on the fence still.
        - Forster: -4 for GKP, who I may well have to sell for a -4 later(?)
        - Raphinha: SGW, but okay option
        - Taylor: Is he even totally fit? Could become a SGW for him, or even null.
        - Alioski: SGW, and potentially at risk given Cooper is back (although Strujik may drop out instead)

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Don't think it's a bad thing to have two playing keepers after 19. Still, have to monitor who's fit.

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      13 days, 23 hours ago

      In a similar boat and considering scrapping the BB idea and going KdB (TC) instead. Will have to take a -8 to BB and even then I'd have triple Spurs, Martinez and Bamford who all have a SGW.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Yeah that's fair. Then you have to (potentially) worry about getting rid of some of them after (potentially for a hit).

    3. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      13 days, 23 hours ago

      Similar-ish situation to me (above)

      I think Antonio + a GK is worth the -4.

      My issue is having no KDB/ MCI attack but it means a lot of ripping up/ downgrading to get him in

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Likewise. Honestly with no MCI attack either, Raphinha to Gundogan is a little tempting 😀

        I'll stick the captaincy on Salah/Bruno, I guess.

        1. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          I have Gundo on my FH18 team .... depending how that goes I may go down that road for 19 also!

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            13 days, 23 hours ago

            Haha, same mate. In that case, good luck for 6PM tonight!

            1. Don Kloppeone
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years

              You too boss

  4. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    13 days, 23 hours ago

    I am planning to BB next week

    1FT, 0.2 ITB and this is my bench (all other players have double) - Flappy, Holding, Lacazette, Smith rowe

    any move you can see here? because of budget looks like smith row and holding will have to stay for value

    so laca to ?

    already have triple West Ham so no Antonio

    1. marcos11
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Bamford is Leeds do end up having a double if you haven’t him already?

        1. marcos11
            13 days, 23 hours ago

            if*

        2. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Issue is Laca is a bad price point

          Assume you don't have anyone possible to downgrade by 1.9 to get Vardy in for him?

        3. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          There isn't anyone obvious in Laca's price range that would do better than him home to Newcastle. I personally would save BB until safer times and to be played after a WC. But it could also pay-off given Arsenal's decent fixture and Fabianski. Go with the gut I guess!

      • BooYaKasha

        Hi All,
        Please rate my GW9 FH team

        McCarthy, (Forster)
        Robertson, Chilwell, Cancelo (Struijk, Douglas)
        Salah, KDB, Bruno, Foden, Soucek
        Vardy, Antonio

        Debating on weather to go Antonio or Bamford

        Thanks!

          Looks good apart from the bench.

        2. Catastrophe
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Monitor Antonio's fitness but I believe it is likely Southampton and Leeds don't have DGW so you may need to start again (hopefully this can be confirmed elsewhere on here soon)

      • Street Friend
        • 9 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Would you bench boost or not? Also which option? If Leeds Southampton moved would you still bench boost? 1FT 3.4ITB

        Current team
        McCarthty Forster
        Dier Zouma Dias coufal targett
        Son Bruno salah soucek Burke
        Bamford Vardy Adams

        Option A. Bench boost and -4 (13DGW 2SGW)
        Forster to Fabianski
        Burke to Harrison

        Option B (10DGW)
        Son to KDB
        Bench targett Burke Adams

        Option C -4 (11DGW)
        son to KDB
        Targett to stones
        Bench Dier Burke Adams.

        1. BooYaKasha
          • 9 Years

          D wouldn't go into this one with no KDB in any case

            1. BooYaKasha
              • 9 Years
              13 days, 23 hours ago

              yes,
              and do something with Burke...

              1. Street Friend
                • 9 Years

                Thanks for your help.

                Burke would be 5.6. And no second keeper
                Or
                Burke to 5.0 & Meslier

          Keeping a CS against a woeful, defensive 5-4-1 Newcastle side is a one thing.

          They won't repeat that against Spurs.

        People ripping their teams apart with hits to get rid of Kane and Son before Sheffield United just seems a bit... dangerous.

        2. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Going without KDB (CRY, AVL) or Salah (MUN, BUR) just seems a but...dangerous.

        3. Flair
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Can't have them all, especially in a DGW.

        4. Dosh
          • 6 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          No need to rip it up. Planning Kane+Son --> Salah+Vardy (-4)

        5. Don Kloppeone
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Depends who the ripping is for.

          If you are bringing in the likes of KDB, Salah, Vardy then I would back the move tbh.

          Yes, there is a chance Spurs destroy SHU but they are improving defensively and ultimately they have 1 game's less opportunity than their potential replacements

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Personally I think Son matches Salah in one less game.

            It was just Newcastle though.

          This. I think a Sunday League team could've kept a clean sheet versus that Newcastle side.

          Looks like no BB for you, but that's a decent team still for the double.

          1. In a Rush

            Cheers for feedback just don’t know where to go with it all the planning to have 15 doubles out of the window.

            1. Pukki Party
              • 3 Years
              13 days, 22 hours ago

              Same situation for most. I think the best thing here is to not force a BB just because it looked good 3 weeks ago.

              1. In a Rush
                • 4 Years
                13 days, 22 hours ago

                Yeah I guess you’re right it’s just frustrating and no free hit now to deal with blanks and doubles down the line.

                I can do a-12
                Button Grealish Taylor Kane ➡️ Johnstone kdb stones Antonia

                Hate the thought of the -12 and losing Kane as part of that but could resurrect the bench boost.

        Would you hit the BB ???

        1. Pukki Party
          • 3 Years

          Yes if Taylor fit.

        2. In a Rush
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          It doesn’t look great to be honest does it. Taylor a doubt Antonio not really up to speed and Dallas probably one game. Oh and Johnstone plays for wba.

          Definitely if Taylor is fit.

        Not to Bench Boost this if Lee/Sou & Avl/Eve is postponed right?

          Why would you ask that?

            Some still considering Leeds single fixture bench boost

              13 days, 23 hours ago

              I’d really think hard about that one. Their should be some major doubles coming up. I’d certainly leave it mate.

        Thoughts on this BB-team?
        I’ve already taken a -8.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Not if Villa & Leeds games are postponed

          What has your -8 been already when there is still so much that could change between now and deadline!?

          You are fine if AVL, LEE and SOU keep their doubles.

          However, you could be left with 5-6 players with a SGW, no second GK .etc - for that I would definitely not BB

            Cheers!
            My -8 was Mane Bissouma Wilson -> KDB Soucek Watkins
            I could just about afford it yesterday

        3. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          I wouldn't if Lee - Soton and Villa - Everton is off

          You can get more out of it later even in a SGW than

          0, KWP (sgw), Dallas (sgw), Watkins (sgw vs City)

        Son to KDB?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Defo

        2. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          It's what I've planned to do since City's DGW fixture was announced. No brainer

          1. Kante Touch This
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            yeah looking at it now it's become obvious

            Think i'm going to do DCL + Son > Antonio + KDB

      • dbeck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Any insight on che adams and McCarthy for Soton? Will both be fit?

        1. DandyDon
          • 2 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Don’t see why not. Adams only had concussion an age ago I think

          1. dbeck
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            13 days, 23 hours ago

            Yeah my thoughts, think I’ll stick to my bb plans

        2. dshv
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Waiting for that too

        3. Sous Chef
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Yep they are my issues - hoping both are fine and I can get this BB done.

      • Hakaei lali
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Yes

      • Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Long way to go before this and so many fixture/covid permutations with these teams, but best option if all games go ahead in dgw? Salah is coming in for either Son or Grealish regardless.

        A) Grealish, Kane
        B) Grealish, Vardy -4
        C) Son, Ings -4

      • DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Transferred Mane to KDB last night as fplstatistics had him as -104. Today he is plus 87! Higher than KDB! Oh well would probably still do the transfer in a few days anyway as no KDB would be a concern but would have been nice to see city play first.

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          probably all the free hits and Wildcards

      • Oooo Matron
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Any thoughts here? Looking to make two transfers with 0.5 itb?

        McCarthy
        Dias Dier Dallas
        Grealish Fernandes KDB Salah Son
        DCL Bamford

        Subs: Brewster, Balbuena, Konsa

        1. DandyDon
          • 2 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          I’d want some West Ham in their considering the fixtures. DCL to Antonio?

        2. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Balbuena, DCL -> Cancelo, Antonio?

          And play Cancelo ahead of Dallas

      • DandyDon
        • 2 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        My team looks really good now without any hits if the Leeds/Southampton game isn’t postponed. 3 Leeds and 2 Southampton though is a nightmare!

      • Rhodes your boat
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Anyone keeping son and Kane? Could do Kane to vardy but not sure about it

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          I'm weighing up a hit for Vardy, just for fun.

        2. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          keeping both

        3. BenDavies
          • 8 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          just keeping kane. son to kdb

      • The Seagulls and the Trawle…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Am sure this has been discussed already here but what is the situation on the Leeds Sotton game? And What doest the reschedule (out of dgw19) depends on?

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 23 hours ago

          Whether the Saints FA Cup opponents are available to play

          1. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            If they are the leeds game will be resheduled, right?
            And from twitter news its seems to way to go, correct?

            1. PogBruno
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              13 days, 22 hours ago

              Yeah the game will be taken out from DGW

              1. The Seagulls and the Trawle…
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                13 days, 22 hours ago

                Damn at least it solves the BB dilemma.

                And i’ve seen somewhere that villa everton could also be take out.

      • PogBruno
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        Is Salah set for a drop before the deadline?

        1. Mr. O'Connell
          • 8 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Nah people buying him again

      • Do I Not Like Orange
        • 8 Years
        13 days, 23 hours ago

        At what point are we likely to find out about Leeds & Villa postponements? Would like to bring in KDB & Antonio but price changes might scupper it if I wait much longer than tonight.

      • Danny De Gea
        • 6 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Would you rather have Son (shu) or Vardy (SOU+CHE) for GW 19? And the following gameweeks I suppose..

        1. PogBruno
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Vardy - has Leeds and Fulham next

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            Vardy is flagged

      • RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Looks like every man and his dog will own KDB by this weekend. Will that be a triple rise tonight since he last played?

        1. Ron_Swanson
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          be surprised if not

      • SomeoneKnows
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Which would you prioritize getting in with a FT for both the DGW19 and longer term?

        A) Antonio
        B) Coufal

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          A

        2. RealSocialDads
          • 4 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          A is more exciting. Depends who's leaving your team for each option

          1. SomeoneKnows
            • 4 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            Antonio would be replacing DCL

            Coufal would either be upgrading a bench fodder or instead of Bednarek

      • Tcheco
        • 3 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Currently on 12 Double GW players & looking to bench boost. Would you take this -8 to complete a set of 15 DGW?

        Kane Lacazette ESR -----> Antonio Vardy Soucek

        1. jomikijiq
          • 5 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          would do -4 without Kane -> Vardy

          1. Tcheco
            • 3 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            cheers. very tempting though

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Which of these would you recommend for DGW19?

        A) Foden
        B) Gundogan
        C) Maddison
        D) H.Barnes

        1. CONNERS
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Barnes at a push but not keen on any tbh.

        2. elwardio
          • 9 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          B

      • RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        13 days, 22 hours ago

        Currently on 13 DGW players with Son+DCL >> KDB+Antonio (-4) to get 15. BB solely dependent on Leeds-Soton game or worth it anyways? Hmm.

        McCarthy*(2)
        Robbo(2), Dias(2), Lowton(2)
        Salah(2), Bruno(2) Raphinha(2) Soucek(2), Son
        Bamford(2), DCL*
        (Johnstone(2), Adams*(2), Coufal(2), Dallas(2))

      • marcos11
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Will Vardy drop before the deadline or are people likely to start picking him up?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            Doubt him drop

        • Captain Haddock
          • 6 Years
          13 days, 22 hours ago

          Any rumors about more postponements in GW18? I need Shaw & Ampadu points from my bench.

          1. mynameisq
            • 7 Years
            13 days, 22 hours ago

            Don't think anything is leaving 18
