    How's this? (-4)

    Pope
    Cancelo / Shaw / Dallas
    Raphinha / Bruno / Salah / Gundogan
    Bamford(c) / Antonio / DCL

    Subs: Martinez / Stones / Saka / Bednarek

      No Son or Kane, no dice

        Oh are they in good form? Hadn't noticed that.

        1. Yank Revolution
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          I would want one of them at all times, regardless of fixtures. Their point totals say it all.

    Anything announced?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      You know what they say, no news is good news.

  3. Daniel Jebbison
    • 11 Years

    Stop posting about new fixture for Arsenal women

  4. umerlfc
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Think I'm going to hold WC and and save BB for later

    1. Daniel Jebbison
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      But when? When to BB?

      1. umerlfc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Just don't know, chaotic to plan in the current situation

    2. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Doing the same

    3. Vjm6891
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Same. Maybe wildcard next week once we know the fixtures. Or BB if I have enough doubles

    4. Atimis
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Best from these ?

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

        Play two:
        A) DCL
        B) Gundo
        C) Cresswell
        D) Soucek

        WC team GTG?

        Martinez
        Stones • White • Struijk
        Salah • Bruno • Son • Raphinha(C)
        Kane • Ings • Bamford
        (Fabri / Gundogan / Cancelo / El Mohamedy)

        Next week Bamford to Watkins and use TC. Will leave me with a full 11 of DGWers in 26 and 8 already for BGW29. My 3 FT between then can be used to field 11.

          • 9 Years

          Benching Cancelo & playing Stones...

          Any reason why?

          1. Sun Jihai
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            Presumably worried about a Cancelo cameo

      • Pedram
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Start Cancelo or Stones or both?

        1. Rider on the Storm
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Stones

        2. JONALDINHO
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          I’m starting Stones because he’s pretty much guaranteed to start. Cancelo is unlikely to start and I don’t want a 1 pointer

        3. ted mcnure
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Start both and let Pep decide for you

      • pogrizi

          y'all help me do I bench gundogan or dcl??

          1. Rider on the Storm
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 27 days ago

            I would not bench gundo

        • Rider on the Storm
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          What do we know about the next possible dgw?
          I understand MCI should have a dgw26 with WHU and WOL.
          I understand TOT have a high chance of playing in gw29.
          Any other possibilities?

            It's the Twitter posts in the article

        • Saosin
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Everythings a first. Flipped a coin between Bam or Rap. Raphinha (C) it is.

            Same here. Feeling confident!

              • 10 Years
              2 months, 27 days ago

              Was tempted by this too, but thinking about it Bamford's got to have a much higher possible ceiling

        • Redranger
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Martinez McCarthy
          Stones Cancelo Dallas Mee Shaw
          Salah Son Bruno Gundo Soucek
          Ings Bam Antonio

          Worth wildcarding this team? Or just do -4 to get Raphina in?

          Who’s the best cheap DFers if on WC?

          Currently have Targett & Rudiger but I’m not sure about either as have Martinez already and Rudiger has tough fixtures until GW30

          1. mwa1t

              Lowton, White, Dunk, Shaw

                Just read that Thiago Silva is out too. Rudiger not a good option imo

              Start DCL or Watkin?

              I think DCL could do some damage against LIV

              Thinking of doing something most would regard as reckless and desperate. Before making my decision, I would like to ask a simple question: how many points do you believe Raphinia will score in his upcoming DGW. Thank you

                • 9 Years

                RMT has 7.6

                  • 9 Years

                  Seems low, but reasonable

                Pep comments about rotating the squad over the next two fixtures:

                Guardiola on leaving John Stones out to partner Aymeric Laporte with Ruben Dias:

                "If you see the schedule we had in November, December, January, we’re in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup, Champions League to the end. And you see the schedule we have at the end of February and especially all March, when Premier League included two more games in that period against Wolves and Southampton we don’t have one week off so everybody is going to play. Today is the decision and against Arsenal we’re going to play new ones."
