Guardiola hints at Double Gameweek 26 and 27 for City and offers Gundogan update

Double Gameweek 24 came to a conclusion on Wednesday evening as Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League table to ten points with a win over Everton.

Elsewhere on a generally underwhelming night for those with Fantasy interest, Burnley and Fulham played out a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor.

SEEING DOUBLE

How the top 10k FPL managers set their teams up for Double Gameweek 24

A throwaway line from Pep Guardiola in his pre-match interview on Wednesday evening set tongues wagging in the Fantasy Premier League world.

The City manager lamented a busy month ahead for his side before the clash with Everton, in doing so mentioning that games against Wolves and Southampton – City’s two outstanding fixtures following cup-related postponements – had been added to the calendar in March.

Those two matches could realistically only be added to Gameweeks 26 and 27 if we’re looking at City’s schedule before the March international break:

ARE YOU ILKAY?

Missing his first Premier League game since Gameweek 12, Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m) sat out City’s win at Goodison Park.

Guardiola had forewarned us that the German would miss out on the trip to Merseyside and he had more to say on the in-form midfielder ahead of kick-off, suggesting that a return to action in Double Gameweek 25 wasn’t yet assured:

Elsewhere on the fitness front, Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) marked his return from injury as a late substitute.

We await news on Joao Cancelo‘s (£6.1m) condition, with the Portuguese defender taking a heavy kick to his knee in second-half injury time and limping through to the game’s conclusion.

As for Everton, the Toffees could have Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) back for the Merseyside derby this weekend:

SILVA LINING

Guardiola hints at Double Gameweek 26 and 27 for City and offers Gundogan update 1

De Bruyne’s return gives Guardiola another option in the centre of midfield, where Gundogan and Bernardo Silva (£7.4m) have started every Premier League match that they have been available for from Gameweek 14 onwards.

It was Phil Foden (£6.1m) who ostensibly filled in for Gundogan as the left-sided ‘number eight’ on Merseyside, with the youngster opening the scoring with a deflected 31st-minute effort and generally posing more of a threat than the shot-less Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) further up the flank.

Bernardo meanwhile made it six attacking returns in his last seven starts, first claiming the assist for Riyad Mahrez’s (£8.1m) superb strike and then taking advantage of some suspect goalkeeping from Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) to round off the scoring himself.

Bernardo has started 12 league matches in a row now and his and Gundogan’s run in the team pre-dated De Bruyne’s injury by some time.

It’ll be interesting to see how Guardiola incorporates the Belgian back into his side, then. Given the form of Bernardo and Gundogan in their respective central midfield positions and Gabriel Jesus‘ (£9.2m) lack of it up front, it’ll be the Brazilian who will be watching more nervously over his shoulder – both Bernardo and De Bruyne have operated as the spearhead of the City attack over the last few months.

Rotation will beckon for most City players during the upcoming period of fixture congestion, it has to be said, with Guardiola telling reporters:

If you see the schedule that we have… we have a game every three or four days, everybody is going to play. Against Arsenal, we are going to play new ones.

ALL ABOUT MEE

It’s now just one clean sheet in seven matches for Burnley without their skipper Ben Mee (£5.1m), who missed Wednesday’s draw with Fulham due to the concussion protocol.

The Clarets’ shut-out record stands at seven in 17 when Mee is fit and the good news for Sean Dyche’s side is that the first-choice stopper will be available for selection for the weekend’s clash with West Bromwich Albion, a fixture that offers Burnley a very good opportunity to add to their clean sheet tally.

Not that stand-in centre-back Kevin Long (£4.3m) was culpable for this clean sheet loss, with first-half substitute Robbie Brady (£5.0m) – on as a replacement for the crocked Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.4m) before having to leave the field himself – making a hash of a goalline clearance for Fulham’s opener.

On a disappointing evening for owners of Nick Pope (£5.6m) et al, the four Fantasy assets who emerged from the draw at Turf Moor with any sort of FPL return were all owned by 1.5% of Fantasy managers or fewer.

Ola Aina (£4.5m), the fortuitous scorer of the Cottagers’ goal and assister of one of Josh Maja‘s (£5.5m) strikes in the win over Everton, finished as Gameweek 24’s joint-top scorer on 20 points alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) – two players owned by a combined 10 managers inside the top 10k.

Fulham were worthy of their point and their undefeated run against sides outside of the top four now stretches to ten games.

    Jesus taking the stick. He's actually 3rd in the form table for strikers with 2 goals and 2 assists in the last 5.

    Guess other than Bamford or Watkins it's slim pickings up front.

    1. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Kane, Vardy, DCL (when fit) also options

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Ings, DCL, Vardy, Kane. Plenty of forward options.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I was just mentioning Jesus is criticised in this article for being out of form.

        When literally he's 3rd in the strikers form table.

        I know players are returning from injury and potential is a different part of the equation, looking forwards.

    3. AC/DC AFC

      * been slim pickings!

  2. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Foden only 2pts behind KdB and 5.5m cheaper than Sterlo (11 vs 7pts this GW)

    #What's not to like? #Just Sayin #Foden looks nailed # Foden on penos #Foden for DGWs?

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      He's not that nailed on as compared to the 2. And people would rather have double city defender + gundo or gundo + KDB and 1 defender.

      Punty option if you don't have the funds

  3. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Would you do Cavani > Ings for a - 4?

    Have a couple of other issues like Antonio & Gundo inured bu feel that this could be a better move?

    Y or N

    I have WC available still but dont want to use that until i need 5 + transfers.

    Cheers

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Cavani > Ings yes.

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Even for a hit, Yes?

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Yes , can see he scoring against leeds. Or who your other attackers?

          1. the dom 1
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Bamford & Antonio but benching Antonio and playing 5 mids.

    2. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I’d definitely get ings in for a hit. I maybe prefer Antonio to Ings but if cavani def injured then him.

      1. the dom 1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Cant afford Antonio > Ings unfortunately otherwise that would be my move too.

        I dont think we will get a full update before deadline on Cavani either as they play Monday now?

        I will see what the pressers say tomorrow and then pull the trigger then.

  4. Boberella
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Bottomed last page....

    WC locked in thus far:

    Martinez
    Cancelo Shaw Vestergaard
    Son Bruno Grealish Gundo Raphinha
    Ings Vardy

    Sanchez Maja Struijk Tete

    Please rip it to shreds and bag me for not having Salah in it.

    6.5 ITB exact funds for Raph to KDB in 26. (Although may go Ings/Vardy to Kane instead depending on what happens in 25)
    Might also swap Sanchez out for Areola before deadline as FUL could Double in 26 and I might BB.

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Why Son?

      Son isn't showing much form, except the 10 points home to WBA and an assist v Sheffield Utd he's blanked in the 5 of the 7 games since Leeds.

      1. Boberella
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I’ve had him for ages so lots of value in him and think he will do well in 25 and also the double in 26 looks good if confirmed.

        1. Boberella
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Obviously Kane back will help him. His main blanks were when Kane was out generally.

    2. Chandler Bing
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      How confident are you of Shaw starting both the DGW games? If he was a guaranteed starter, I'd have him in a heartbeat.

  5. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Scrapped over the ton with 105pts

    No shows from Mee, Stones, Gundogan & DCL, with Dallas (-1pt) off the bench.

    But then Phil Foden came to the rescue....

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Well done mate.
      After getting 72 on the first day of the GW, I thought I’d blitz the ton, but only ended up on 94 with Mee, Stones and Gundo not playing the second game. Can’t complain though.

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Cheers Bob, very decent score yourself

      2. circusmonkey
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Pretty much identical, 72 first day.

    2. Lindelol
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Same story 107 with so many no shows

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        108 here. Thought I was cleaning up when all my Gundo capping rivals were dismayed as my TC Sterling started, only to bag triple-one point. In the end it was Digne's useless assists that won me my weekly ML.

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          😀

  6. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Mendy or Areola start?
    Dias,Stones,Dallas
    Salah,Bruno,Gundagon,Maddy,Grealish
    DCL,Bam(TC)

    Mendy or Areola Lowton,Creswell,Antonio

    Good to go for GW 25 ?

  7. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Stones should start next game right?

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      yes , pep hint will have new starting eleven

      1. Jafooli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Foden to keep getting starts?

        1. Chelsea91
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Foden will be rest for ucl I guess.

          1. Jafooli
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Hope so...

    2. Party time
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Yes

  8. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Would you BB the following in DGW25:

    McCarthy* - DCL^ - Cresswell - Mitchell

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Tough one. Probably wouldn’t.

    2. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Change Mitchell and BB if you want.

  9. Jafooli
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Suspect Sterling > KdB will be a very popular rage transfer this GW?

    1. Boberella
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Definitely! Really hoping for no KDB rise as I have exact money for Raph to KDB in 26. Unlikely not to rise though i expect.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      The thing with owning KDB is when fit you know he's starting and involved. But even he's not getting the returns consistently when playing.

      1. Flair
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 21 days ago

        No guarantee he starts vs Arsenal though, so early switches could prove hasty.

    3. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Viewing numbers on fplstatistics certainly makes it seem that way.

    4. seewhyaxe
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      you nailed it. that's one of the transfers I'm making this gw.

    5. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Would wait 1 more week. I doubt Pep will want to rush him back so quickly with UCL around the corner

  10. Lindelol
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    pope (johnstone)
    Cancelo stones Lowton AWB coufal
    Salah Bruno grealish gundogan ESR
    Bamford dcl Antonio

    4.7 itb and 1 FT
    Who I bring in here. Open to one hit.
    1. Antonio + coufal to Ings + Dallas
    2. Antonio + ESR to Ings + Raphina
    3. Anything else

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      2 makes sense.

      Good luck.

      1. Lindelol
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        CHEERS and good luck

  11. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Is Son to Raphinha worth considering at all?

    1. Bavarian
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      No

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Yes, what will you do with the excess fund?

    3. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I wouldnt. Not before whu and a DGW and game in 29

  12. Bavarian
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    I think Dias-Gundo-Foden is the way to go for City assets...
    This allows to bring heavy hitters in mid and fwd lines...

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I am going with Cancelo KDB Gundo.

    2. Flair
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Prefer double City defense (running Dias + Cancelo), better alternatives in midfield than defense.

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 21 days ago

        With Rudiger at 4.6 and Chelseas fixtures id say he and Shaw are solid alternatives

    3. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Wouldn't trust Foden to play most games when everyone is back. Would rather go back heavy and KDB / Gundo instead

    4. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I agree - Foden is the cheapest/best option for third City player, with uncertainty for all but a few 'nailed' players

      1. HammersXI
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Whose spot will Foden take up in the midfield?

        Currently Bruno Son Gundo Salah seem to be in everyone's midfield. Would you go with him over Grealish / Raphinha / Barnes / Maddison / KDB atm?

  13. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Gundo + KDB + Cancelo WC team with Kane, Salah and Bruno. Does it look ok?

    Martinez Forster
    Cancelo Shaw Rudiger Taylor Struijk
    Salah KDB Bruno Gundo Raphinha
    Kane Watkins Bamford

    Thanks!

    1. GuenDoozy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Very similar to my team.
      Im getting Maja, Barnes, and Areola instead of Watkins, KDB, and Forster. Leaving exact funds for Raph to KDB in GW26.
      Long term that means ill be starting Barnes/Maja and you Watkins/Raphina.

      Maybe i like yours better.

      1. GuenDoozy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Forgot to mention, I am on BB26.

  14. Party time
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Sterling is just an expensive Nathan Dyer.

    Owners should know better

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Yeah I'm done with him. Doubt he's ever coming back into my team this season. Just seems so out of it

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      just not his year...

  15. Disturbed
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Would you sell Sterling for a hit for any of these this gw? He needs to go, just not sure if it’s worth a hit this gw.

    A. Son
    B. Grealish
    C. Maddison
    D. Barnes
    E. Jwp

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I sold him for Raphinha even before the game. And no regret. I would play A-D above him anytime. But for this week Son looks like a great bet.

    2. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      No

  16. HammersXI
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Not planning to WC this / next week. Which moves (-4) should I make for next week?

    A) Ings, Coufal -> Kane and Cancelo
    B) Ings, Raphinha -> Kane and Barnes
    C) Ings, 4.3m ST -> Kane and Watkins
    D) Ings, Raphinha -> Watkins and KDB

    All would give me 10 DGW Players (already have Son in my team) and might end up TC next week.

    1. Alcapaul
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I'd go A

  17. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    0FT, 4.6m itb
    A. GTG
    B. Antonio -> Kane (-4) and bench Grealish

    Pope
    Cancelo, Dias, Dallas, Lowton
    Bruno, Salah, Grealish, Gundo, Raph
    Bamford
    [Martinez, Coufal, Antonio, DCL]

  18. akhilrajau
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Pope
    Dallas, Maguire, Stones
    Bruno, Salah, Gundogan, Sterling, Raphina
    Bamford, Adams
    bank: 1.7m, FT: 0
    Bench: Martinez, Watkins, Digne, Coufal

    Is the time for wildcard? Especially considering upcoming double gameweek. I dont have bench boost. Only have TC

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I wouldn't WC esp if you don't have BB.

      You have 4 players this DGW and 9 DGW 26. Why would you WC? Sterling -> Son / KDB would be the easy move next week.

      1. akhilrajau
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Thank you. Cool. Also considering kane .

        1. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          There's no harm taking hits in DGWs. Could very well pay off. but there's no way you should be considering WC at all. You have digne and watkins who are v useful for 26. I would seek to downgrade Pope and upgrade Adams and Coufal soon enough. And to replace Sterling.

          1. akhilrajau
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Ok great. Actually i dont have clear idea for dgw teams. So only look about this. My plan exactly told like downgrade pope to Johnstone / McCarthy/ areola. If needed cN downgrade Maguire -> rudiger and coufal -> white.

            Thinking to take take TC in gw 26 . Is it good idea

  19. spray
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    I'm reading these experts recommending Raphina... cool. But beyond this week, meh, I'm not sold (I'm yet to decide on my GW29 plan).

    More so, are you guys struggling to find a seat for Raphina?
    I have Gundogan, Maddison, Grealish, Rashford, Salah.

    Gundogan and Salah are not leaving, based on form and cost.
    Maddison has form and fixtures.
    Grealish could go, arguably, but then he's got three games yet to be scheduled.
    Rashford isn't looking terrible, has NEW (H)... just doesn't have the recent form in FPL.

    This GW has been a great example where Martinez scored more than Pope despite two decent fixtures. At this stage of the year, we've got quality that can trump DGW players.

    What are people doing and their thoughts?

      I'm a Leeds fan and honestly I'm surprised how long Raphinha has gone under the radar. He's been amazing the past few weeks, and stats don't seem to back up his impact.

      That being said, alot depends on whether KP is fit for the next 2 games. If KP is fit, Raphinha will thrive more.

      In your situation, I would remove Rashford, but as you say it's weird to remove Rashford when he has a plum fixture against Newcastle and a DGW. I would very well hesitate to make a move just for Raphinha (if you already have Bamford).

      I removed Sterling for Raphinha. No regrets there. Did it before the game.

      1. HammersXI
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Raphinha is my move this week, but he could very well leave for KDB or someone else the following few weeks. Leeds are the 5th highest scorers, so fixtures don't mean much to us anyways

        Thanks!

        Yeah, I think Rashford is the one I'm happiest with trading.
        It does depend on knowing he doesn't have a DGW within 1-2 weeks however.
        Raphina does get a lot of the ball, when viewing the heatmaps, in addition to the other FPL stats. You're right.

        Cheers

    What teams will have double fixtures in DGW26. Plz don’t say check Ben Crellin on Twitter

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Literally answered your own question. Nothing has been announced. Just be patient and wait

      No one knows better than him here. So go check that out.

    3. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I'm hearing Pep has been told the fixtures ahead of Ben Crellin.

      So Man City double with Wolves then Southampton in gw26 and gw27. I think is the order, let me check.

      Clearly clubs are informed before it's announced publicly.

    Anyone through to the next round of FPL cup?

    Can't believe I am having my longest run ever this season

  22. Karan14

    Going to be tough choosing 3 or 4 out of Kane, Salah, KDB, Bruno & Son!

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Currently aiming to have 4/5 of them but it's between Kane / KDB atm..

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Yes that what I'm planning too.

        Want Kane & Bruno for sure. Would like to see Salah, KDB & Son play atleast once more to make a decision.

    2. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Will be between Salah and Kevin I guess

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Yes most likely.

    3. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I am going with Salah KDB Bruno Kane. Gundo KDB double up rather than Kane Son double up. City much more attacking.

  23. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    So Man City are going to have 4 premier league games at home in a row.

    West Ham, Wolves in a dgw followed by a double with Man Utd and Southampton.

    No travel helps them too.

    And with rotation the players will all get some pitch time, but will any be bullet proof and who scores?

    1. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      They have to travel for UCL.

      Ederson is the only nailed on one for me. Once KDB gets his fitness, I suspect he will be nailed on too.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Yep, either side of that run and after Fulham away I think Munchengladback visit Manchester, in mid March.

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Gundo pretty fundamental too.

  24. Inazuma X1
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    There's no chance Southampton have a double in GW26 right?

    1. Karan14
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      They can if the Spurs or City game is rescheduled for 26.

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Looked at the fixtures, where will they move it to?

        1. Karan14
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          What do you mean?

          The only way they won't have a DGW26 is if Spurs have to play Fulham and Man City have to play Wolves.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Man City do play Wolves, then Saints.

            Pep bemoaning the lack of a 'long week'.

          2. Inazuma X1
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Check the dates, don't see anytime where it could be played.

            City are facing Wolves in 26 thats for sure, Pep confirmed.

    Just finishing a night shift so I thought I would do my transfer.. as you do... done Richarlison for Vardy....

    going to sleep happy now..

  26. Chandler Bing

    Would you have Digne on WC? Everton potentially facing WBA and Soton in the DGW

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      maybe, maybe not. Tricky to pick someone with low CS potential. Can work but Pereira might be slightly better.

  27. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    Best playing defensive sub up to 4.1m?

    Not the Leeds chap

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Their is no playing sub at that price. Mitchell or Kilman might get gametime but it will be unpredictable.

      If you can arrange 0.1, then Burn/Lascellas are sliightly better options.

  28. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    So Wolves double away at Manchester City in gw26

    Southampton dgw in 27 away at Man City.

    Man City double with 4 home matches in a row across game weeks 26 and 27 ...

    Game on.

    1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Time for KDB Gundo Cancelo

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Could be a thing of beauty.

        Will split the Kane TC26 a bit too.

        Can people really afford Salah, Bruno, Son, Kane and KDB too?

        Decisions needed who to back ...

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Difficult but can be tried. At present I have dropped Son for this team:

          Martinez Forster
          Cancelo Shaw Rudiger Taylor Struijk
          Salah KDB Bruno Gundo Raphinha
          Kane Watkins Bamford

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Looks good.

            Is that on WC or actually your team? If so, when do you activate it?

            1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              On WC. Already activated.

                • 5 Years

      Yawn moment with 3 Man City already in place

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Which ones tho?

      2. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years

        I’m not going on kdb train. Better value mid options

  29. George Agdgdgwngo
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    For the next 4gws. Who scores more points.

    A. Maddison
    B. Grealish

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Madd

      1. George Agdgdgwngo
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Even with all of villas doubles?

  30. Bumbaclot
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 21 days ago

    We going Rafa or bamford for captain then??

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Bamford for most.

      So Raph differential?
