    I know still no one will be picking him but Mata at 5.0m is awkward to see.

      When's he gonna get a game?

      A bargain if he ever gets a run of games but I'm surprised he's just signed a new contract given the lack of minutes he's been getting.

      Arguments for him: Rashford needs an operation and is still playing, Cavani and Fernandes only just finished playing, Sancho is still playing, Greenwood and Martial haven't played since they got injured. At £5m he could potentially feature heavily for the first two or three weeks and play out of his skin to get a decent deal elsewhere - and be given the chance for the same reasons. Also he's £5m.

      Arguments against: All the players mentioned above, plus Lingard and James, are above him in the pecking order.

        And in addition to all that, he'd block a spot should you want to triple up on United.

        I don't think there's any arguments for him tbh

    Donnarumma - Stekelenburg*
    Alba - Shaw - Maehle - Spinna* - Kimpembe*
    Damsgaard - Berardi - Sarabia* - Forsberg* - KdB*
    Kane - Immobile - Morata

    I'm pretty sure I'm transferring in Sterling, Maguire and Insigne.

    What to do with the other 2 transfers?

    A) Pickford + Stones
    B) FTorres + Emerson
    C) Olmo/Chiesa/Mount + Stones

    Cheers!

    Would do F Torres and stones if budget allows.

    if not Chiesa and Stones

    31 p ahead in My mini league.
    Should i try to get similar player as he have, or just ignore him?

      Can probably afford to ignore- teams will naturally be super similar at this point.

    Tinkering and found this combination for anyone who wants to lose their mind contemplating who to bench (assuming Abraham gets his move).

    Sanchez Foster
    TAA Digne Shaw Fofana Manquillo
    Salah Bruno Buendia Raphinha Sarr
    DCL Abraham Toney

      abraham? have i missed something?

      1. Moxon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        He's been linked to West Ham and Villa.

    Feels a little boring, but probably going with something safe like this to start the season. (1.5m ITB)

    Sanchez
    TAA - Dias - Shaw - Digne
    Salah - Bruno - Raph
    Antonio - Watkins - Toney

    4.0 / 4-5 - 4.5 - 4.0

    1. Moxon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      4 months, 29 days ago

      Safe and solid. You could consider Toney to DCL with the spare cash.

    2. CONNERS
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 29 days ago

      Yes true, although I like to have some £ in reserve to enable easier moves for the form players after the first week of games.

      I also fancy Toney to make a mockery of his price - the promoted teams usually start the season well.

        I'll be excited to watch him. Easy downgrade for me if he lives up to it.

      no chelsea cover at the back, is that not a concern?

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        4 months, 29 days ago

        rotation is a concern

    4. CONNERS
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 29 days ago

      Rotation puts me off Chelsea players, although if Alonso moves to a new club, Chilwell could become a great option.

      the only thing I've found with having 2 x 4.5 mids is it's often inflexible, especially when you come to make transfers. Also, if you have any injuries in the first team you're basically guaranteed a 2 pointer from the replacement (vs. a 4.5 benched defender which has a good chance of scoring 5+), so I'd maybe go Dias > 4.5m def and a 4.5m mid > 6m mid.

    How does it look, lads?

    Schmeichel / Ward
    Dias / Digne / Shaw / Coufal / Lamptey
    Salah / Bruno / Raph / Buendía / Sarr
    Watkins / Wood / Toney

    1. SETANTA
      • 2 Years

      I like it but tought fixtures for a few

    2. CONNERS
      • 2 Years
      4 months, 28 days ago

      Nice spread of players to choose from each week, although I suspect you'll have frequent benching headaches.

  8. Tomsk

    Would everybody still go for Salah if he wasn’t on penalties?
    I wouldn’t even look at him based on most of his performances last season.

      Going big at the back and in midfield is fine. Going big on Arsenal, not so much.

      G2g?

      Simon - Pickford
      Bonucci , Maehle, Stones, Shaw, Maguire
      Chiesa, Sterling, Insigne, Torres, Damsgaard
      Kane, Morata

          Simon - Pickford
          Bonucci, Maehle, Stones, Shaw, Maguire
          Barella or Chiesa, Sterling, Insigne, Torres, Damsgaard
          Kane, Morata, Schick

          .1 or .2M ITB & 2FT

            Why keep 2FTs?

            1. ronwon
                4 months, 28 days ago

                I'd like to use at least one because one can roll over, however, I have all of my needs covered right now besides transferring out Schick, but I don't have money ITB to take care of that. Any suggestions?

                  Transfers don't roll over now in the Euros.

                    If you don't use your free transfers between matchdays, you'll only be able to carry one forward to the next matchday – meaning you can't stockpile free transfers over several rounds. If you use your Wildcard or Limitless chip, then no free transfers get carried forward. And once the knockout stage starts, you can’t carry any free transfers forward between matchdays.

                  The only player I'd transfer Schick for is Immobile which I need to find over 1M to fund and I already have Insigne and Chiesa and Immobile's form has dropped as of late.

                Gigi & Dams or Simon & Barella?

                Alba or Bonucci?
