    1. Digne > Robbo
    2. Bruno > Mane

    1. Gizzachance

      2

    A. DCL & Digne to Wood & Robbo (play Bruno)
    B. DCL & Bruno to Wood & Mane (play Rudgier)
    C. Bruno & JWP to 2 mids for £17m (play Rudiger & bench DCL)
    D. Meslier & DCL to Alisson & Bamford (play Rudiger and Bruno)

    B has been popular but not feeling convinced on the Mane pick

    Not sure what to do. I’m 7 points behind 1st.

    Team:
    Mende
    TAA, Coufal, Dallas
    Bruno, Salah(c), Lingard, Mahrez
    Nacho, CL, Watkins

    Messier, Ward-Prowse, Shaw, Coleman

    I’m thinking Bruno > Mane, Mahrez > Raphina -4 pt

    Will Mahrez play? Thoughts or advice?

    Mini league already won, rank around 5k, just want to get as high an OR as possible. G2G or take a hit?

    Martinez
    Rudiger - Targett - TAA
    Mane (C) - Salah - Greenwood - Lingard
    Antonio - DCL - Bamford (VC)

    Lloris - Mahrez - Digne - Shaw
    0FT, 0.0 ITB

    Did Bruno->Mane already, anything else? Could get Dallas or Iheanacho...

    If you had Dias and were on a bench boost, would you keep and hope he starts or bring in someone else?

    1. JabbaWookiee

      (for a hit)

        Possibly Dallas?

  9. DannyDrinkVodka

    Start Greenwood or DCL? Up by 23 points and I don’t want to take a hit.

    Good day ,

    Up by (60) pts in mini league. A (-8) required to get Mane who 2nd place might captain. Uneccessary hit no ?

    Since it's (60) pts, just kept captain on Salah & have both Arnold & Robertson.

    Appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.

        yes not to worry since it is a 60 pts lead. He wont be able to catch you imo

      1 point ahead in super tight mini league (3 players within 2 points). Never posted before but I guess this is the big one.

      have mahrez, jota, dcl and digne (saka would play).

      A. Just replace jota with rafinha (play mahrez and saka).. dcl first bench, digne second bench.

      B. Take a -4 and replace jota with raf and upgrade digne to robbo. Saka first bench if mahrez doesn’t play.

      C. -4 and replace dcl with ineacho and jota with raf.

      D. dcl to Bamford.. digne first bench but then 2 injured players after on bench.

        Hi all,

        24 points above 2nd place.
        My team:
        Mendy
        TAA Shaw Robertson
        Bale Lingard Greenwood Son
        Iheanacho Bamford Vardy
        Bench:
        Forster Strujik Coady Jota

        Should I bring Dallas in for Shaw, captain Bamford and forget about it or take a hit and bring Salah in to captain him?
        I know that the manager that is chasing will captain Salah.

        Thanks in advance!
