      They're hopes, not rumors.

    3. tiger

      Is this the rumour...or a rumour about the rumour?

      rumour it's a rumour

    5. Studs Up

      its the hope that kills you

    6. Egg noodle

      I prefer 6.25

    7. Jimmy Boy

      Last chance for an announcement today surely

  3. Esalman
    • 11 Years

    Any cheap defender worth getting from the dgw 26 teams, except from Burnley?

    1. Bad Kompany
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Villa

      1. Esalman
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Ah forgot I have 3 Villa including Martinez. So that's a no-go. This is surprisingly more difficult than I thought.

        1. Bad Kompany
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Could you afford Shaw? If not Brighton doesn’t have a dgw but have great fixtures

          1. Esalman
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 25 days ago

            I probably could. Thanks!

      2. djman102
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        There will be, just a question of when announced and how many.

    2. Atwood
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Don't think there is a DGW26 anymore

    3. OleBall
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Rudiger maybe, not great fixtures but great value long term

    4. tiger
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Raphinha captain...I think!

      1. Ninja Škrtel
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        still locked on Bruno but eying raph

        1. tiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Bruno is tempting for sure...touch choice

      2. Woy_is_back
        • 3 Years

        Has to be bumford I think

      1. Dog and Fox
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        How about Ings this gw, and Ings -> kane Next?

    10. FDMS All Starz
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Would you play Adams if you had him?

      1. nadman89
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

      REPOST

      Hey fam

      1. Sterling to Salah for free?

      2. Play Martinez or Areola?

      3. Play DCL or Antonio?

      1. denial
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        I'd probably do 1 because of how annoyed I'd be with sterling

        No one should be asking about benching Martinez at this stage. Its triggering me.

        Antonio

    12. aapoman
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      If on WC is KDB and Cancelo enough City?

    13. Disco Stu
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 25 days ago

      Would it be crazy to think that Sanchez with one game could score more than McCarthy with two?

      1. ...al
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Nope. Not sold on Southampton defence at all

      2. mwa1t
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Sanchez will outscore McCarthy

      3. waltzingmatildas
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Which one to play?
        A) dcl
        B) antonio
        C) stones

      4. Alexis Nonsense
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        How likely is it that Villa - Spurs will end up in GW29?

        I have taken a look at Ben Crellin's sheet, but only says "expected to be added"

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          It just makes sense that's all it is

      5. tinear
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Thoughts?

        1) Antonio to Ings
        2) Stones to Dallas
        3) both for free

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Both for free? If so, 1

          1. tinear
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 25 days ago

            2ft atm

      6. Cancelo Culture
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Grealish > Raphinha worth a hit?
        Only have Bamford for the double.

        1. waltzingmatildas
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          I would

        2. The_FF_King
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          I made this move. Grealish hasn’t been scoring that well recently

        3. ViperStripes
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          I did that move (to fund DCL > Ings)

        4. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Dont think its worth a hit

      7. Egg noodle
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Where are the WC Drafts?
        Lets compare and copy!

        Martinez Areola
        Shaw Vestergaard Shaw (Stones Struijk)
        Raphinha Salah Fernandes Son (Reed)
        Bamford Ings Kane

        next week Bamford, Raphina > DCL, Gundo for -4.

        1. Dog and Fox
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Missing som Shaw

        2. Black Knights
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Too many Shaw.

        3. Rhodes your boat
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Nice side, BB next week?Who’s the second shaw supposed to be?

          Here’s mine for reference! 1.5itb for raph to Barnes BB26

          Martinez areola
          Stones shaw targett holgate rudiger
          Salah Bruno son gundo raph
          Kane bamford watkins

        4. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Looks good. But two Shaws dont make a right!

        5. My heart goes Salalalalah
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          Shaw x2

      8. ...al
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Having terrible trouble deciding who to get in for the City defence. They all have their merits. Ederson in gauranteed mins, but keeps Martinez on the bench for a few weeks, Cancelo gets all over the place, Dias prob the main man but still rotation there... So hard to decide

        A. Dias Cancelo

        B. Ederson Cancelo

        C. Ederson Dias?

        1. Sturridge Wars
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          C. Most nailed

        2. nadman89
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          doubt theres rotations for dias , had a stomach problem vs tott

        3. ViperStripes
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          B

        4. ...al
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 25 days ago

          True but with the schedule there's always a chance. At least Ederson will be certain, and then Cancelo more swiss army knife who gets forward. I don't like keeping Martinez on the bench either but surely worth the risk with the double double

      9. Sz21
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Which two from these would you bench this GW?
        1. Cancelo. (ars)
        2. Stones. (ars)
        3. Son. (whu)
        4. Gundogan. (ars)
        5. Burn. (CRY).

        1. djman102

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Start dcl or gundo?

      13. The Tinkerman
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Take a 1 week punt on JWP as a placeholder for Gundo (on WC)?

      14. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Triple Captain Bamford or Raphinha.....2 great games, no rotation threat (unlike a TC City)

      15. Jon Snow
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Just seen on Twitter, "CONFIRMED: DGW fixtures will be announced alongside the release of the next Game of Thrones book"

        What doubles are confirmed as happening next week? I haven't used my wildcard yet, I feel like I should've used it this week so that I can use BB next week?

      18. Atimis
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 25 days ago

        Best from these?

        1. Shaw for 25 and 26
        2. Dallas for 25 and Tarko for 26
