Pro Pundit Teams

Which Premier League sides have fixture swings in the coming Gameweeks?

Currently sitting at 773rd in the world, Let’s Talk FPL’s Andy gives his thoughts on upcoming fixture swings for three Premier League teams.


Double Gameweeks are some of the best parts of any FPL season, but we can often fall into the trap of tunnel vision, where we forget there are other teams and players to consider.

In this article, I wanted to take a look at some future fixture swings for teams, both in the short-term future, but also a bit longer term.

Chelsea

With the amount of rotation we’ve seen under Thomas Tuchel, I’d be a bit wary of going for too many Chelsea players, but the fixtures look kind in the near future.

  • Gameweek 27 – Everton (h)
  • Gameweek 28 – Leeds United (a)
  • Gameweek 29 – Blank
  • Gameweek 30 – West Brom (h)
  • Gameweek 31 – Crystal Palace (a)

West Brom, Leeds and Palace are all in the bottom three for expected goals conceded this season, with Everton the seventh-worst team in the league. The fixtures from Gameweek 27 look prime for goals.

With Timo Werner (£9.2m) finally getting a long-overdue goal on Monday against Newcastle United, he’s one to keep an eye on, especially with FPL managers looking at Harry Kane (£11.0m) for a potential Double Gameweek in 26. This could be an easy switch later on.

      I once asked my local library if they had any books on turtles.
      Hardback? they asked.
      Yes, I replied, with tiny little eyes.

        Only reason I'm here

  3. Requested changes to comment forum
    Deulofail
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    Please can we have the ability to follow posts and be notified of replies? If this has to be via email for now, then so be it. I know we can do this for our own posts, but I always forget, and would like the option to turn it on and off, not just for my own posts, but for others.

    Ideally, we could navigate all this on-site. I know, I said the same thing 4 years ago, but there's been been very little progress in terms of giving power to the users to gain access to the information and opinions they want, and for insight to accumulate, discussions to last more than 2 minutes, and we all know this comment section format is not fit for that purpose. Time to find a work-around or redesign and actually implement!

    1. ritzyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Yeah, a few chat changes would be welcomed, notifications, emojis, the ability to post pics instead of having to write out the team everytime, etc.

    2. Dirty Harry
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I can't believe a feature like this hasn't been implemented.

      Surely it would allow for more discussion and less reposting.

      1. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Also an option to block/hide users which we don't want to see personally

        1. Deulofail
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I disagree with this, personally, but that's another discussion 🙂

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah this would be my top request. There are a couple of horrid people who have the ability to pretty much ruin my day with some unprovoked insipid comments. Often not towards me, but just seeing them isn’t nice at all.

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Sorry Rups....

            1. Deulofail
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              You can't be forgiven when you're blocked! Count yourself lucky 😀

            2. Rupert The Horse

              2 months, 29 days ago

              It’s fine. You make up for it with all the fresh milk you bring.

        3. Bartowski
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Given that they only do it for attention, they'd soon creep off back to reddit or 4chan if this was implemented and the site would be much nicer as a whole.

        4. Pumpy Pro
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I'd just be talking to an empty forum. Good idea though. There is , or used to be, a plug in that let you block users. Not sure if it's still around

      2. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I presume they are happy with the number of refreshes ('visits') that the site gets for ad revenue in it's current format. Ticking over nicely.

    3. CRO KLOPP

      And able to delete my post when I write something stupid

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Or go back and edit posts so we can claim to have forseen Maja's haul or West Brom's results against City, Liv and Utd.

        1. CRO KLOPP
          • 3 Years

    4. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 3 Years

      Deulo they are not doing this until you (and I) start coughing up £25 a year or whatever it is now.

      1. Dirty Harry
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        £25

      2. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I stopped paying membership because I don't believe they will spend it on improvements.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          I thought you had been but couldn't remember for sure.
          I don't pay because I am congenitally mean with myself.

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            😆 It's time to heal. Learn to transfer the meanness to others

            1. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              You're right. I'll just give the dog a quick kick and then upgrade my life - Jonty's Bentley doesn't service itself after all.

    5. mixology
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Fully agreed. A forum is necessary with the ability to create a topic and reply specifically to that topic, to allow proper discussion. Instead we have a 4 minute window and then the post/page is bypassed

    6. CRO KLOPP
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Hulk this, site improvements

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        There have been plenty of Site Improvement hulks in the past. It's pointless. Willing to be brought on board to help research, redesign or increment and test improvements, FFS, if you're interested. (Not a dev). 😛

        1. CRO KLOPP
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Will work for vouchers, maybe it's better to start your own fpl site

          1. Pat Bonner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            The older members got fed up and now have their own site

            1. kennethrhcp
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              If you read back. Where do they post Packie?

      2. mixology
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        We have the ability to flag this post to request it being hulked into a hot topic. Done

    7. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I'll be honest, I find this forum pretty out of date. I've been here for 10 years and it's barely changed. Lots of small quality of life changes to improve comments, following replies and facilitating discussion would improve it so much.

    8. Pat Bonner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Commented on this on the last article but to repeat myself the comments section is not fit for purpose. Everyone on the payroll of FFS, doesn't actually use FFS but they use twitter instead which tells you all you need to know and the contempt they have for regulars on here. This, along with them putting £ first and promoting gambling sites constantly, is the reason I'll not be renewing my membership next year. I would encourage others to do the same

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Agree with all points made in this post. Perfect summary of the situation

      2. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Always a treat when one of them comes to the comments section. We are not worthy.

      3. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I am considering my membership next year yes. This year I am a member of 3 paid sites (using the money I won in ML last year) to compare and contrast and will pick one next year. What about releasing roadmap to members and involve members to provide input to roadmap?

        1. Geoff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          It's been a slow go to get some of the Members updates done that we wanted pre-season but they're coming along. There have been loads of smaller updates but the Comparison Tool redo and home Dashboard in Members are getting very close. A little Profile update is fairly close too.

          I keep big spreadsheets with the input that comes through things like these Hot Topics, so most of it is recorded. Happy to do some google form stuff too to get feedback! The more feedback the better in my view

          1. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Cheers Geoff ... agree with the merier the feedback the better but it will come with expectations and if it is presented/communicated with visualisation to users (which features, what to be prioritised, when to be expected etc.), you will get better UI/UX with realistic expectations. Whatever visualisation of roadmap works I think, including spreadsheet.

        And the only Mod that actually does hang out here seems to wear that contempt very openly. Just found one of many instances when looking at a site improvement idea here https://www.fantasyfootballscout.co.uk/comment/19801792

          I was speaking with one of the mods about this late last week, as we've had one or two get busy with other stuff lately.

          I think a new mod or two is needed in the next month o r two as life has stepped in the way of some of the mods who were recently more active

          1. Rupert The Horse

            Ok ok I’ll do it.

              You're almost there, posting presser times

          2. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Horsie and me are the partnership you're looking for 😀

              What could go wrong 😀

      5. The Orienteer - find me in …
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yes, it was mainly the promotion of gambling sites that made me leave - gambling destroys lives but makes a lot of money for those in the business and its offshoots.

      6. sminkypinky
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Agreed with Camzy and Pat here.

    9. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Don’t even know where the notification is when someone replies...

      Also a block feature would be good

      1. Pat Bonner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Block feature would be great! I've brought this up a few times

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah I’d love the block feature. It’s win win. It’s not nasty as the person won’t know and it’d cause less mental stress.

      3. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years

        It goes to email. We have some basic implementation of on site notifications which is really where it needs to go

    10. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years

      The ability to delete our own posts would be good too.

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years

        Or Edit our own posts.. Actually it's not that hard

    11. Forever In Our Shadow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Having discussion tabs would be good too. For example separate tabs for RMT’s, one for A or B questions and a general discussion tab for everything else. You can then tune into to what you want to see and read at any given time.

      1. Deulofail
        • 5 Years

        Yay more tabs! 🙄 😀

          I'm still salty as hell that we haven't got FPL points or ability to filter for non sequential gameweek ranges in the members area - will never get over that

          1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            *FPL points as a column in the tables, not the current "Overall points" attribute which hardcodes itself to match the player's current season FPL total regardless of what season/gameweek you're looking at & is basically useless

    13. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Comments section is terrible on match days in particular. Some kind of filtering would be useful however tricky to implement.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        That’d be lovely. Some like all the 10 minute captain fails, so and so is such a fraud and get out of my team you idiot posts, but for me it’s juvenile.

      2. Mr. O'Connell
        • 8 Years

        Live feed that refreshes in real time rather than forum posts?

      Ability to move your own posts to the top of the page would be good.

      Wouldn’t want to see it get to much like a proper forum with threads etc, the casual nature is one of the reasons this is so popular I think

      1. Nanoelektronicar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        More hot topics, same format, but more structure.

        1. Geoff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          There's been a noticeable slowdown of people flagging comments; that flagging is hugely helpful to push Hot Topics. So if you see something that's good, or post something of your own that you think is Hot Topic worthy, use the flag option.

          That's there not just for bad posts but for good ones too 🙂

          Yeah, Lateriser posts a hot topic on his Pro Pundit articles to encourage discussion of the actual article. It would be nice if other pundits did the same.

        It's generally fine, but the RMT and general team surgery discussions should be given its own dedicated space to avoid cluttering and inhibiting more topical discussion.

      Eh the entire comments section needs a complete overhaul. It's not fit for purpose.

    19. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The main issue can't be solved with that change only. We should have a discussion forum with topics to discuss.

    20. Obi Wan Elokobi

      A poll feature like the captaincy option could be included for people to vote who to bench and stuff

      I agree largely, I really want on site notifications. Still top of my list of things that would improve the comments section. As well as following others which I think/hope isn't too far away.

      There's some basic notification functionality in place in Dev now that will be worked on, after we test and fix bugs on some decently large Members updates.

      I'll also add that a 'General' chat that filters all comments through to one place, and then having comments on specific articles being about that article will be hugely helpful.

      Not sure if you've tried it, but you can set 'Notify me of replies' as auto - this is what I do, and then just untick if I ever don't want notifications fora post. That's in the profile section (which also has an update coming in the next month or two)
      .

        Thanks for the update Geoff. A general chat seems like a reasonable idea to keep articles more 'on-topic'. Of course, the articles would need to be about things that were worth having discussions about if you do want discussions. Not making a judgement here on whether they already are or aren't.

        I know I can turn notifications on permanently, but i don't want to tbh. I'd rather get nothing than everything by default, unless it was all kept on-site. I can bookmark something if I really want to revisit it later, but onece I get to that option, the discussion would have died anyway.

        1. Geoff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          Yeah I just want it all on site. It's less of an issue for me because I always have email open and FFS open, but for almost everyone it's vital to have that all within the FFS ecosystem.

          And it's a great point about the comments under articles. How many comments would an article about some non-FPL thing get? Likely very few. But that's not really an issue. In some ways that actually would help Editorial see what is successful and interesting.

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Good perspective on the Editorial. Helps also to be focussed in writing with a purpose, and also knowing that people may be more likely to read and engage with it.

            Might this result in some users "hiding" in articles if the only options are general or specific articles?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years

              Cant do harm so may as well test and see

                2 months, 29 days ago

                What do you mean hiding in articles?

                1. Ginkapo FPL

                  • 9 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  Sort by comments by article as a way to filter out 90% of the irritating users rather than because of engagement with the article subject.

                  1. Geoff
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    Sorry I still don't understand. Like groups of users going to posts to have specific chats? That's possible now and doesn't really happen.

                    The only option now is general, so the General Chat would just be an extension of this with added specific article comment sections.

                    But yeah sorry something about the way you wrote that comment, I think I missed the point

      Agree with the gambling sentiment, the less the better. It’s profiting from others misery. The house wins in the end, always remember. Stay away.

      1. claretparrot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        I gamble. Roughly a tenner a week, on football, and although I'd guess that I'm down overall I thoroughly enjoy it. As it goes I don't read the gambling content on here, but I don't mind it being there either

          Full disclosure I don't think Mark ever got this going, after that chat! But in the last 6 months or I guess from June 1 we now have in place the basic functionality for a message box to appear top right corner. It needs to be finessed because it's a bit buggy but for the first time (ever) FFS has made progress on onsite notifications

          1. Deulofail
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            This is great to hear. If I could actually get decent value out of my time spent on this site, I wouldn't hate myself so much for being here. This is certainly one of the most important steps in the right direction, in my opinion.

            I like what Mark had to say, but there are surely other solutions. Just not a fan of stagnation when the issues are so easily identified. Still, it's my choice to be here, so I can only blame myself for my frustration haha.

            Looking forward to seeing it, and let me know if you need a software tester 😉

              I did think about this last week as well - some staff are going in for Comparison Tool testing in the next few weeks and then it's probably best for us to expand that out to a set of users before it goes live. Happy for you to be included in that 🙂

    25. EmreCan Hustle

      I would actually like a search option that let's us search key words or even usernames.

    26. EmreCan Hustle
      • 8 Years

      And a proper share button if possible 🙂

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        What do you mean on this? For articles?

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 29 days ago

          There is a share button for articles. I meant for posts and comments such as these.

          1. Geoff
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Ah I see, yeah that could be made easier.

            If you hit 'permalink' it will link directly to the comment when you share the link, instead of just the page, but it won't display the comment on the platform. I'll see how that's best done

    27. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I would settle for having hot topics which promote discussion occasionally.

    28. Kudo Warrior

      2 months, 29 days ago

      100%

      I've asked to be able to get a notification on a reply to one of my comments a few times over the years. I don't see why it would be a difficult feature to implement (I manage site/app builds all the time).

      1. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        You can get them in email, but yeah as I've said on site is a way bigger priority.

    29. FPL Egregious
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      100% agree on that. The notifications come in an email i hardly use. Must be another way to get notified on site.

    30. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Something does need to change imo.

      I think MySpace was more with the times than this site.

    31. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Hot Topics do work given the traffic on this one. Thats a positive

    On WC, which trio would you prefer?

    a) Kane, Grealish, Rudiger
    b) Son, Watkins, TAA

    1. Dirty Harry
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      A

    2. Stormbringer22
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      A

    3. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      Close but would go B as I think TAA is starting to show form

      1. ritzyd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Yeah, i'm thinking he could be a nice differential, watkins/grealish feels like a wash but prefer kane over son

  5. Nespinha
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 29 days ago

    This is my current team:

    Pope, McCarthy
    Cancelo, Stones, Mee, Dallas, Rudiger
    Salah, Bruno, Grealish, Sterling, Raphinha
    Adams, Watkins, Bamford

    should I WC this? or save the WC for 30/31?

    1. SuperG
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 29 days ago

      I’d get rid of Adams. And you need gun-dog so maybe have to boot Stones. O5er than that, it’s great.

          Just read this in a Guardian article - https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/feb/16/pep-guardiola-warns-international-break-will-lead-to-more-covid-cases

          "At the start of this month Fifa announced that clubs were not obliged to release players for internationals in countries that require a quarantine of five or more days on return. For elite sportspeople in the UK a 10-day quarantine applies after visiting red list countries such as Portugal and all of South America.

          This means City could order Bernardo Silva, João Cancelo, Rúben Dias, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Agüero to remain at home but Guardiola said City were not currently minded to do so even though those players would then miss the game at Leicester on 3 April. “The players are going to the national team,” the manager said"

          It's still a ways away, but something worth considering for those with a double up in city's defence, and other players that will fall into this category

            Yeah this is true. Brings the GW30 Free Hit into play if this is how it turns out. Lot can change of course in the intervening weeks, like countries being added to and coming off the red list, and of course the approach of the PL and individual clubs. As is, Bruno Fernandes would be a huge one too, as well as Richarlison, Firmino, Martinez.

          if there is a DGW in gameweek 26 so the should have announced it before gameweek 25 to decide if we have to wildcard or not
          but till now there are no official DGW

          so are people just expecting a DGW or there will announce it later ?

              He has history of failure(s) with TV rights and predicting when matches are being played. He did find that that discussion forum though. I wouldn't trust his predictions too much.

          Which is a better option for next three GWs?

          1. Brighton defender
          2. Southampton defender (assume they have 3 DGWs in a row)

          1. Totti
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            2

            • 3 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            3 games with reasonable chance of 2 cleanies vs. 6 games with maybe none

            2 statistically will score my points

            Why do you think Southampton have 3 DGW'S in a row? I heard not even a double in 26.

            1. Inazuma X1

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                I was told that according to his predictions they are very unlikely to have a double in 26

          5. Kane and Ablett
              2 months, 29 days ago

              I can’t see Southampton keeping a clean sheet against anyone except SHU between 25 and 27 in the 3 or six fixtures possible, Brighton could get two in their three games IMHO, but it’s tempting

              1. Super Saints
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                Vestergaard will score in every game though

              Would be very careful to get kdb in already now. Will he be matched carefully? Is he matchfit? City plays well and no need to rush and take risks.

              And how bad he was the matches before his injury...

                My City team select for tonight Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; Bernardo, Rodri, Foden; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling.

              • 4 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Surely the below is much stronger? Rudiger has awful fixtures in the double.

              Martinez Areola
              Cancelo Stones Shaw Struijk Vestergaard (does he have a DGW in 26?)
              Salah Bruno Son Maddison Gundogan
              Kane Bamford Watkins

          7. estheblessed
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Currently on this:

            Pope
            Alioski, Shaw, Cancelo, Stones
            Fernandes, Gundo, Salah
            Ings(c), Bamford, DCL

            Martinez, Grealish, Barnes, Dier

            Will probably do:
            Alioski to Rudiger and Ings/Bam to Watkins for DGW26 and BB.

            All sound OK?

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                Im not sure I can get him in without losing out on another "big hitter".

                I may be able to squeeze Son in but if I attempt to get either of those I would then need to wild card instead!

                1. Zladan
                  • 3 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  How many big hitters do you have?

                  It seems possible to have:

                  Martinez
                  Cancelo Stones
                  Salah Bruno Son
                  Kane

                  Then fill the rest with Leeds and DGW26 players?

                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    Of course Gundogan there too. Maybe you have Sterling which is the problem?

              Same dilemma pushes me to use my BB this week. Also Martinez.

              Justin to Bednarek ?
              Or
              Rodriguez to Raphinha/Ward-Prowse

              Not so happy with Messlier for DGW.
              Should I just keep Messlier and hope for the best?

              (have Dallas and Bamford, but ideally I would have Dallas, Raphinha and Bamford).

                • 5 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                Yes. Using 2 transfers on Meslier -> Dallas is not an optimal play

                  • 5 Years

              • 4 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Suddenly seeing Southampton defenders in everyone's drafts, I was told on here that it is very unlikely they will have a double in 26?

              1. Nanoelektronicar

                • 6 Years

                People punting on multiple dgwks after the 26.

                • 10 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                Even if that was the case, it would be Everton and City/Spurs away, so hardly the best fixtures for a Saints defender

                • 10 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                The latest from Ben has Southampton DGW in 26 as being more likely than not. Unless something changed recently, I'm pretty sure this is still the case.

                1. Super Saints
                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                2 months, 29 days ago

                I'm not making any moves now making assumptions based on when postponed fixtures will fall. If a Southampton defender is good this week (I'm not convinced they are) that's all I'd be considering.

            • zdrojo187
              • 6 Years

                Why can’t you have Dallas Raphinha Bamford?

              Without knowing the DGW fixtures GW26 I have no idea what to with this lot.
              Still have my WC, FH and BB chip left and the BB chip is a real pain in the ass

              Thinking of doing Rashford and Antonio to Raphinha and Ings and next week Bamford to Kane what will give me 9 DGW players in GW26.
              Could also still WC next week to get me 11 DGW players but have to ignore the BB chip for now.

              Martinez Pope
              Dias Cancelo Tarkowski Coufal Mitchell
              Gundo Bruno Rashford Salah Soucek

            • Zladan
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 29 days ago

              Bring in Ings (-4) and bench Lowton/Stones/Cancelo/Gundogan?

              1. Kane and Ablett
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  Tempting but who for? I doubt he’ll score against Chelsea or Man City which kills the appeal of the doubles for me

                  1. Zladan
                    • 3 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    It would be Richarlison to Ings.

                    Rich already on bench though.

                    Ings to Kane for GW26.

                When are the doubles being announced ffs?

                Also, Raph or Harrison?

                1. Zladan
                  • 3 Years

                With Mee,Antonio,Gundog,DCL all crocked..

                I could really do with dias and cancelo starting tonight.

                On WC, which of these 3 would you choose for GW 26 onwards:
                A. Son, DCL, Ings
                B. Grealish, DCL, Kane
                C. Maddison / Barnes, Ings, Kane

                Would like Son and Kane but short of ££. Veering towards B.

                • 4 Years
                2 months, 29 days ago

                If you could choose to have just one who would you take for remainder of season

                Salah
                Vardy

                1. BeWater
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    Salah. But I think I'm going to end up with both and miss out on Kane.

                  • Marcin the Pole

                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    I'd be cautious on Vardy. Minutes will be managed very carefully over the remainder of the season.

                  • 4 Years
                  2 months, 29 days ago

                  Gundo going to miss out vs Arsenal as well we reckon?

                  I thin& it’s likely. Just don’t want a small cameo from him.

                  1. BeWater
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      I don't mind that if it means he definitely plays in the double.

                      • 3 Years

                      Guardiola said he could have made the squad vs Everton if it was necessary. Can see him play vs Ars easily

                      1. FPL Pillars
                        • 4 Years
                        2 months, 29 days ago

                        There’s not that much a rush as league looks comfortable and CL midweek isn’t there. CL is what pep is craving! Can’t see him on both.

                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      Pep will want him for the CL game next week for sure. Likely he misses the gale this week-end, or reduced game time (60 mins? 30?).

                        Spot on Gundo maybe bench against Arsenal. Comes on 2nd half or 20 mins. KDB also in contention

                        Yes I think so, but will await more news... see how they fair tonight 😛

                        Fernandinho fit, trained and on coach to Everton tonight along with KDB

                    • 6 Years
                    2 months, 29 days ago

                    The only way to bring in Kane for TC in DGW26 is to rid of Salah.

                    Is it worth it?! (Already have Son)

                    1. LC1
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 29 days ago

                      It would mean doing Salah > Raphina and Antonio > Salah.

                          I've got Son at the moment and not going to sacrifice Salah to get Kane. I don't want 20M tied up in Son and Kane and I'm a Spurs fan!

                        Salah’s DGW is not bad either. But Kane is the clear TC option for me during DGW26.

                        I will have both. And Son.

                          That's definitely the dream. I just don't see any way how I can have all three without ridding of Bruno (which is definitely not happening)

                            Of course not (for Bruno).
                            If a choice needs to be made in your case then Salah and hope for a Son haul (good tc option to tbh). But you’ll need a big sofa to hide behind.

                      Would this be prudent or overkill?

                        Overkill. Unless you plan to WC in 26.

                      Is Kane "essential" for the DGW if you already own Son? With the extra funds I can do Raphinha to Grealish in GW26
