    So Sterling to Raphina to fund Kane next week?

    Basically Sterling, Antonio ➡ Raphina, Ings.

      Sure you don’t fancy a punt on Adams for the DGW seeing as though you own him?

    you mean to say some guy on twitter who has excel isn't an oracle?

    Ben Crellin never said the doubles would be announced this week. Less of the slagging, he helps people for free. Some people just take take take

    1. moment
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      The fixtures are going to need to get played before the end of the season after all. Just because not announced today doesn't mean they won't happen. Pep's already confirmed the city DGWs.

    2. RubeRx

      Hes so reliable i dont get it, if anything blame the FA for taking so long

    3. Lindelol
      • 2 Years

      This

    4. seanie3
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      exactly, they can easily be announced next week... just some on here think they must be released before GW25 deadline!!!!!

    Dont understand the discrepancy in the captain poll between Bamford and Raphinha. Im guessing Bamford ownership is skewing the results because to me Raphinha looks like the better option.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Fear.

    2. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Sell me on it. Cause Bamford EO% scares me.

    3. Effe
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I agree

  12. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 2 Years

    Is a WC this week and BB next a good move? Sorry, I haven't paid much attention this week

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      😀

    2. Ninja Škrtel
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      that's what i did, it's a risk but half of my team were injured. in any case my entire squad is ready for a DGW whether it's next week or not.

  13. King Kun Ta
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Play two of:

    A Cancelo (ars)
    B AWB (NEW)
    C Mee (WBA)

    Ta lads!

  14. Captain_Shirokov
    • 2 Years

    really could do without that grealish injury now

    1. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      what Grealish injury?

    2. how now brown cow
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Come on then. Let's hear it....

  15. FPL Pillars
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    So single game week 26 it is.

    1. sminkypinky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I would love it.

    2. seanie3
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      why? extra fixtures for w26 could easily be announced next week

  16. Pauntley
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Should I bench Gundogan or DCL?

    1. King Kun Ta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      DCL

    2. The Prophet
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I’ve now benched Gundy. Don’t think he’ll start from those comments and I dread the single point 5-minute cameo.

  17. Ninja Škrtel
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    I honestly believe Bruno is the better captain choice this GW over Bamford and Raph.

    I mean honestly against Newcastle at home?? no brainer for me.

    1. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Much more serious option than last GW for sure.

      His EO will be interesting.

    2. Bonus magnet
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      dont like the fact he played close to 90 min in Europa though

  18. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Source for the Grealish knock/injury?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Smells like BS

  19. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Fixture check in #3?

  20. waltzingmatildas
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Play one of
    A) dcl
    B) antonio
    C) stones

  21. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Treble GW27?

  22. mdm
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Who to play:

    A. DCL (liv)
    B. Gundo (ars)

    Thanks.

    1. King Kun Ta
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      DCL first on my bench....Gundo on the pitch

    2. The Prophet
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I’m the opposite - don’t see Gundy starting and fear the single point cameo.

  23. Richarlidad
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Still respect Crellin for putting his balls on the line. He's only trying to help the FPL community. Suppose it's good to see all the toxic people on here who love to see people fail. Guarantee you're doing nothing with your life 🙂

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yeah

    2. seanie3
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      This, he doesn't have to do it, and who is to say the announcement isn't made early next week? the timing is not his fault..

  24. Stupendous
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Ben Crellin is a legend

    No matter what any simpleton here says!

  25. AC/DC AFC
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    13 mins ago.

    (If the DGW26 fixtures aren't announced in 3 mins then it's time to start panicking)
