    Enjoy your coffee virgin.

      Thanks Stewie's Teddy, but I wanted an FPL article 😥

      I deleted my Euro team when FPL launched.

        Yeah I can imagine. I’m not playing either.

          Preseason is well underway. FFS haven't put out so much as a tweet about it. Not great really is it? :/

            Oh really? I barely use the site any more. Shame really, I used to enjoy it so much.

            What's the point when everyone is focusing on the Euros and there is lots of time left.

    I stopped playing this fantasy Euros game since the last 16 made a right mess of my team!

    Afternoon lads,
    chasing Euro 2020 ML leader for 17 points, I reckon he'll go balance and lean on England so I think I need to go heavy on Italy, which one should be the best captain ?

    A. Jorginho (hoping for a 1-0 win and he got the penalty)
    B. Bonucci
    C. Emerson
    D. Di Lorenzo
    E. which one ?

    Thanks a lot

      C. All day long. I've not even thought twice. (Unless you're leading your mini leagues) Do or die.

        Expecting a clean sheet then for Italy?
        What if Sterling and Kane dives again.. they will.

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years

          RoR. Plus he plays very high like the new Spinazolla

        2. RamaJama
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          Sterling and Kane meets A far better defence now, Think they’ll struggle to score

          1. jayzico
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Indeed. Still got Bon/Chel which is unreal.I swear those guys should be about 50odd now. Best defence in Euros. Just not a great fan of the keeper.But equally can't stand Pickford

    4. Nightrain_
      • 5 Years

      3 different pick and I'm confused now lol but I think Emerson could be gold here

    On commentary duties for the BBC tonight will be Guy Mowbray and former England midfielder Jermaine Jenas. *** Groan ***

    Jenas is clearly getting the gig because he is on the one show not because of his (limited) footballing insight.

    Who is the worst second commentator in recent history do you think?

    1. The 12th Man
      • 8 Years

      Andy Townsend

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Townsend has a special place in my heart after the 2005 champions league final.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Jenas, Keown, Lee Hendrie, Chris Coleman

      All are poison to the ears

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Keown I agree with. He is only employed by the BBC because of his reaction to a missed penalty decades ago.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          You can really hear the media coaching with Jenas & Keown too - if you listen carefully they’ll often lapse from their newly found oxbridge style pronunciations to more of an “awight geeza” type vibe from time to time

          It’s quite jarring

          Chris Coleman’s habit of sniffing into the microphone every 5 seconds has almost resulted in me putting a blunt object through the television screen on several occasions

          GET A FCKING TISSUE CHRIS FOR FCK SAKE

          Lee Hendrie - I don’t think they even let him commentate any more after a game or two he was so out of his depth with actually having to speak English

    3. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I was worried they'd chose Jenas, the BBC seem to love the guy for some reason.

      In that case, I'll watch ITV during the match, and BBC during the intervals. Avoids ads and Jenas.

    Sticking with this mess for a while.

    Glaring errors anyone? Apart from Smith-Rowe. A pure gamble - or that chap from Brentford. Know NOWT about Brentford though:

    Sanchez 4
    Trent Robbo Coufal (Lampt/Williams)
    Salah Bruno E.S.R Harrison (Gilmour)
    DCL Watkins Nacho

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Robbo, Harrison -> VVD, Raphinha?

      Like it overall though

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Robbo purely for his corners. VVD is a great aerial threat in the box. Yeah, possible though. I see Robbo/Harrison as an easy way into getting Son after Spurs' difficult start

    2. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Brighton and Leeds rotate well, could go Ayling over Williams. I think your midfield is pretty light but it’s a strong draft.

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks MB. Yeah, just sussed out their rotation last night (not bought my members pass yet so a lot of digging instead) which looks awesome

    Shaw(c) good differential for tonight?

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      There are no standout options imo, so why not.

  8. Milkman Bruno
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Liking this draft. Focusing on attacking the promoted teams to begin with. Saka is a placeholder for Raphina.

    Sanchez
    Robertson, Vvd, Lamptey
    Salah, Fernandes, Pepe, Buendia, Saka
    Watkins, Antonio

    Steele, Fofana, Ayling, Davis

    Saka to Sarr and Buendia to Barnes or Antonio to Dcl are other options I’m looking at. Would love some input.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      No Trent
      Double Arsenal attack

      Dont like it tbh mate

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        You don’t think Robertson and Vvd can keep pace with Trent to begin?

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          No

      2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        I think that is a bit short sighted to dismiss a team simply because it does not have one player!
        The poster has VVD and Robertson for a start!
        It is all about moving players based on fixtures and the best combination week on week. Yes Trent can get double figure scores but Robertson is also well capable of it as well. Plus you would expect VVD to chip in as well.

        1. Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Thanks for the back up 😉 depending on Trents and Virgils fitness it could change.

    2. boozybaz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Pepe is a big NO

      1. The 12th Man
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        For you maybe.

    3. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Thanks for the feedback. Not sure I entirely agree but appreciated.

    4. Ooh Ah Cantona
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Keep hold of Pepe he's a great pick and it feels like he should have a great second season with the Arsenal

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thank you

    5. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I like it there is a good balance to it. Although personally I would prefer Raphina instead of Buendia. But I can see your logic. Would you consider Sigurdsson instead of Pepe?
      He seems a safer pick to me and spreads the risk a bit?

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks for your input. I can’t say I’ve considered Siggy. I have had both Digne and Dcl in many drafts but decided to wait and see how they get on with Rafa in pre season.

        Buendia could easily become Raphina/Harrison but I just don’t think I need to make that swap until gw4/5 purely due to fixtures but I agree Raphina is an exciting option and probably .5 underpriced.

    How are people making the choice between AWB & Shaw?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Isn’t Shaw the obvious answer based on potential for attacking returns? Or does this relate to risk of him being eased in over first few games given the Euros?

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        AWB gets some returns too. Seemed more nailed last season to me. Guess Shaw is just really in the limelight seeing how good he is doing at the Euros. But at PL level is he really the obvious choice of the 2?

    2. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I’m going without to begin with.

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        If united sign another CB then I will re think it

    3. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Not sure I want a Utd defender to be honest

      Maguire was beyond a nightmare to own with his yellow card odyssey…

      And at Utd’s defence conceded as many as Fulham at home, (and more than the likes of Southampton & even Sheffield United)

      Maguire really needs two extremely defensive midfielders in front of him to stop him from getting exposed (and ideally a third centreback if possible) - which Utd only usually get away with in the bigger/crunch games - against smaller teams when the midfield is more forward thinking they have a vulnerability there which is often exploited

      So not super hot on Shaw or AWB at the minute to be honest

      Can easily see Leeds scoring GW1

      1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        What if United signed Varane?

        Leeds will score GW1 guaranteed.

        1. Giggs Boson
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Bielsa talked of a Leeds "evolution" after the 0-0 draw against United, seeming to suggest a more pragmatic defensive approach against the big sides.

      2. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Haa, I am guessing you are looking at a City premium def after TAA.

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Actually have zero interest in City or Chelsea as things stand - you couldn’t pay me to own any of their players while they’re all fit 🙂

          If there’s an injury bottleneck (or a Harry Kane deal) that clearly signposts who is going to start for an extended period, then we can cross that bridge if we come to it…

          But for now staying well, we’ll away from those two rotational maniacs

          1. boozybaz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            I have James GW1 then change hime for Man City as they play Norwich. then i will change Watkins for Leeds Bamford after GW 3

          2. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            As is, I have Dias in my draft, things could change. With TAA and Coufal making a back 3.

          3. VincentVega
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            I do think there is a structural problem with the game as it stands...it makes you avoid players from the bigger teams which seems frankly rubbish.

      3. LegendMoon
        • 4 Years

        Great comments

      4. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Agree with lot of the points, but United is definitely buying a decent CB, dunno if it'll be Varane or kounde or someone else, lindelof, plus United were quite average at home, does it improve with fans back now, think Shaw is at a decent price point, can shift to digne/Cresswell easily

      5. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        They both still had decent ppm last year and AWB was better in the latter part of the season. Leeds may score or not, we are not choosing team for one week only. I can see myself having even both of them, I don't know if Robbo for example is worth 1.5 million extra when money is tight. And I prefer both over Dunk and .5 million.

    4. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Most likely going with neither, Shaw like Digne are both overrated imo, and it's basically attacking return or bust. I prefer AWB of the two though due to him getting more minutes, similar attacking returns (without set pieces) and I believe more bonus points than Shaw last season

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        MU has decent fixtures in the beginning and they had 13 clean sheets last season. I haven't checked how many agains these teams, but I see no reason why they would/should be worse this season.

        1. Thomas Magnum
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          I will probably end up with AWB at some stage, especially if they start doing well from the get go as I also know United players do tend to normally catch a lot of price rises. But I just worry if they don't sign a good CB and the keeper situation is still a bit iffy then it'll be frustrating and CS or bust like it is with Digne, I will probably just look elsewhere to start off but lots of time to decide from here on out

        2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Utd keep their cleansheets when you least expect it - in the tougher games where they are “allowed” to play more negatively which prevents Maguire being exposed

          6 of their 13 cleansheets came against Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool & Arsenal

          In the other 32 league games (i.e. against lesser/bottom half type teams teams where they are more attacking) they only kept 7 cleansheets

          1. Zim0
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            I'm guessing Varane will help with that.

    5. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I go Cresswell plus 0.5ITB over both to be honest

      1. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        My bad. Cresswell is 5.5. Jeez. Then Coufal/Dunk +0.5 over them

    6. Ooh Ah Cantona
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I'm not going anywhere near the Man Utd defence. They were average at best last season and have shown no signs that this season will be any different

    7. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      AWB annoyed the bejayus out of me last season when watching live games. Cross it for feck sake. Plus he used to get yellows when he was in the mix for bonus points. Meanwhile on the other side of the pitch Shaw would take them instead!

  10. TheDragon
    • 3 Years

    Which Italian defenders are most attacking?

    Hard to even find 11 players I want for tonight’s game

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I’ve gone for Emerson hoping he goes of around 70 minutes again and it’s 0-0 and then England score after that and will 2-0 haha

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        *goes off

        1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          *and win 2-0

      2. jayzico
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        That's actually my thinking too. But more like he goes off around 60min mark and game end 1-1.Italy wins on pens

  11. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    I've thought of going 4 at the back to start with, so
    TAA Shaw coufal lamptey Fofana
    One of Fofana/lamptey on the bench.
    Thoughts?

    1. TheDragon
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      I always have these ideas at start of season and it never seems to work out for me.

      Safest way to get a solid start is go with a template price structure as being able to move between players quickly early on I find is important.

      How well do Lamptey and fofana’s fixtures rotate?

      1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Not as good as Lamptey/Ayling

        1. The Red Devil
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          True, just checked, Leeds Brighton rotate better

        2. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Yup. Lamptey/Ayling check it out. Even better Dunk/Ayling but don't have the extra 0.5

      2. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        True, I'm keeping 0.5 ITB for any sudden templates, but I don't see many good budget midfield or forward options tbh, raphinha is the best option at budget price, I mean would you have a 5.5 mid or a Shaw/digne/Cresswell?

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          All depends on ESR. Could be gold

    2. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Seems a good back line

            Having the best player of all time helped too.

    FPL draft. Would play BB GW1 with this. What do you think?

    Sanchez
    Shaw Trent Digne Chilwell Cresswell
    Dallas Raphina Salah Mount Grealish
    Nacho Antonio Toney

    Dubravka

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE

      Lots of players still in the Euros - could miss GW1.
      Dallas is not a good FPL asset as a mid imo.

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years

      I am not a fan of BB GW1.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        BB gw1 is not generally good idea, but even worse after major international tournaments. That team is unlikely to have 15 starters. Yes, last season BB was nightmare for some, but all seasons are not brothers in that respect.

        1. Little Red Lacazette
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Exactly.

    3. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Too mush wasted in defence. Trent + another big hitter then say 4.5s

  14. RUUD!
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    No love for Wan-Bissaka? 4th highest scoring defender, as nailed as they come, seems to be improving his attacking game and could link up well with Sancho.

    Appreciate Shaw is the same price but had a full Euro's, is injury prone and Telles a threat to his minutes.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Feels like Shaws injury problems are behind him.

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Looking at history, I have no idea why people prefer Shaw over AWB.

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Shaw just seems to be the flavor of the month apparently. Couldn't understand why he was more popular to end last season and will inevitably be more popular going into this one. I presume the fpl youtubers will have Shaw over AWB in their preseason vids which will also sway a lot of people

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          That results with higher ownership, and people make selections also by tsb% Not much between them tbh, probably pretty similar picks. AwB more nailed, Shaw has more set piece threat. MU needs back up for AwB and replacement for Lindelöf and someone like Kante to help CB:s imo.

      2. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 15 days ago

        The Shaw love is more likely due to his more recent progression. Definitely on an upwards trajectory, which is why “history” should be used as an indicator only really. Look at him in the euros, has 3 assists and created plenty. How fit he will be after the euros in comparison to AWB is another thing to consider mind. Awb is rested.

        1. Zim0
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          He's just getting his preseason in now instead of later. 😉

      3. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Double the xGI and 3 times the xA last season might have something to do with it. Shaw is more attacking, if they both play as many games, Shaw has the higher ceiling so on paper is a better option at the same price.

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Isnt it as simple as Shaw attacks whilst AWB plays the reserved fullback role. If anything AWB is going to attack even less with Sancho unrestrained in front of him.

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Well, AWB scored twice as many goals as Shaw and had .3 more points per match. He can pass to Sancho, if Sancho can dribble and score, he should get more "undeserved" assists. If Sancho is just going to pass the ball, your scenario is gona

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          ...happen.

          "Had"

          I am interested in

          "Will have"

  15. gogs67
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Mucking about with a lowish template 3-4-3
    Sanchez / Steele
    VVD Dias Cancelo / Ayling Thomas (LEICS if he starts)
    Saka Barnes Salah Mahrez / Dallas
    Bamford Watkins Nacho

    Half million to spare Thomas could go to Fofana, and Dallas to Harrison or Willock if he goes to NEW
    Bench needs to cover Pep rotation, but I think it'd be real bad luck for all 3 of them to miss the same game in the first few rounds, especially with mahrez being fresh .
    This will be nothing like my 15 picks come the close of the transfer window lol

    1. Ooh Ah Cantona
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Loving the three Leicester. Thomas is a good pick over Fofana, just hope he makes the FB his own in pre season's. I'd swap Cancelo down to Stones. I think stones should get more minutes and points over the season, pep doesn't seem to rate Cancelo having left him out in a couple of important games. That would leave you 1m so could do Mahrez to Son at some point after the first few games if you wanted to

    Why aren’t people doubling on pool defenders?

    1. Zim0
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Last year trauma

    2. Thomas Magnum
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Can only guess due to price, better squad balance with only one and may be keeping a spot open for Jota if they already have one defender and Salah.
      Haven't made a draft yet myself but would love a double up, specifically of the fullbacks.

    3. bitm2007
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Spreads the risk. Pool have good opening fixtures but that doesn't guarantee CS's especially at the start of the season which is notoriously unpredictable for them, and that's before you factor in that Pool have defenders returning from injury.

    4. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Bit simplistic to presume that they will return to the clean sheet titans they were prior to VDD injury, so it's a lot of money to tie up in defence at the start of the game.

  17. The 12th Man
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    How does this look?
    Schmeichel
    TAA,Tierney,Coufal
    Salah,Fernandes,Torres,Raphinia
    DCL,Watkins,Toney

    Ward,Gilmour,Reguilon,4.0

    Reguilon will cover for a Torres no show and will also be starting 2 of Coufal,Tierney,Reguilon every week.

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Looks a little different and good.

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years

      Lovely 12th Man. Personally I'd make reggie a 4.5 and upgrade this Tony dude

      1. The 12th Man
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks, yeh that could be an option although im not keen on Wood or Adams.

        1. jayzico
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 15 days ago

          Antonio I was thinking.Don't like those 2 either

          1. Baps hunter
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Doesn't Whu play in Europe? Callum Wilson (7.5) is also an fwd option. Unpopular, but worth not forgetting.

  18. PartyTime
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Bruno(C) too risky?

    I know it’s risky but I quite fancy it. Pen & set pieces + could start the season on fire

    1. Chelsea91
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Salah

      1. PartyTime
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks. Salah it is

      2. PartyTime
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Feels risky to back Bruno. Kinda torn between both

    2. jayzico
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      It be on Bruno if not Salah

      1. PartyTime
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Thanks

  19. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years

    Ederson
    Taa,Shaw,Azp,Coufal
    Bruno,Sarr,Salah,Saka
    Toney,Watkins

    Forster Raphinha,Williams,Davies

    How the team looking?

    1. PartyTime
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Nice team. It’s quite different

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years

        Thanks

    2. jayzico

      Nice but hate not having 3 strikers

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 15 days ago

        Who you suggest to downgrade?

  20. Chelsea91
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 15 days ago

    Digne/Creswell or Azp/Coufal?

    1. PartyTime
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Cresswell, Azpi

      1. Chelsea91
        • 2 Years

        Thanks

          Mind you Everton have a beautiful first few games

          1. Chelsea91
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 15 days ago

            Currently on Digne and Creswell, think chelsea will get cs for first game

    7 defenders on the pitch tonight for England 0-0 in 90 mins has to be a big runner

    Did cr7 really stayed up all night just to watch Messi lift the cup?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      It might surprise you to learn that Ronaldo is pretty into football. Hardcore involved in the game

    2. Godfrey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Every 2 years they play this tournament with 10 teams. This had to happen, nothing special so I don't think CR7 stayed up all night

    3. Hairy Potter
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 15 days ago

      Which country is he in at the minute? I assume he's on his holidays somewhere. So might not have had to stay up all night to watch it.

    4. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      It was either that or have one of his minions plunge the darts into his Messi voodoo doll.

  24. Nomar
    • 11 Years

    Jacob Murphy at Newcastle ended the season well.

    I wonder if he could be one of those FPL gems this season?
