    werner starting is bad for lukaku

    1. Bennerman
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Explain, tactical genius

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        well, did you not see he fluffed multiple assists last weekend?

        1. Bennerman
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Deep

    2. CMIUK (Catch Me If U Kane)
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Not really they link up well

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        not last week, when timo missed a couple of chances

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      Given Timo assists more than scores, who's to say that's true?

      1. The Red Devil
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        issue is if timo plays off the defender's shoulders, lukaku has to drop deep, hopefully its the other way around

        1. Bennerman
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Is that not a bit simplistic?

          Anyway, not trying to call you out, let's see. Good luck

            • 6 Years

            all cool bro, it wasn't a deep tactical call, just a view on Lukaku exclusively as an FPL asset, i'll be happiest if he gets a return or two, a differential in my ML

            1. Bennerman
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Fair shout mate.
              Me too, and as a fellow Red let's hope for a draw.

      Early days, I think they complement each other perfectly. Could be a lethal partnership

      1. Bennerman
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        You got the 'OMG' multi-telly bunker ready Bemba?

    5. Carefree Crew
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      From an assist perspective his track record would suggest you are right, although he did score mid week, so maybe not. (Hopeful Chelsea fan)

      However from a goal perspective Timo will create space for Lukaku. I think it could be a dangerous partnership with his pace running in behind.

    Next week (MCI) who would you rather have?

    A) TAA
    B) Jota

    1. Podge
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      a every week against anyone

    2. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      A - half-decent chance Firmino plays

    3. F4L
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      TAA

    4. Gunneryank
        2 months, 5 days ago

        The answer is always Trent.

    5. Jon Walter's Hatty
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 5 days ago

      City masterclass today

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        N'golo.

    6. Gunneryank
        2 months, 5 days ago

        I'd just like to personally thank all the managers who shipped out Trent and Antonio last week and didn't get them back.

        Cheers lads 😀

          🙂

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Well, they have still got close to 100% EO, so not sure who sold them 😀

          1. Gunneryank
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Hmm yeah that's a good point. I suppose since I'm not near 10k it helps me more, as my rank tier should be easier to run some beats on (900k).

        3. davies
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Can’t afford Dias/Cancelo… next best option?

          A) Laporte
          B) Walker

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

            I wouldn't bother with either.

          2. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Walker

          3. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Too early to say

          4. KunDogan (B.D.)
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Avoid

        4. Kellz86
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 5 days ago

          Well Torres has been an inspired choice

          1. F4L
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            on Foden watch today, easy to make the switch

            1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              😆

          2. Nomar
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Kept him in with the expectation of 2 points only, so assuming he gets a cameo that’s all I’m really looking at.

            Got 2 FT so can get rid this week and get a Chelsea defender without taking a hit.

            As Maximus has repeatedly stated on here, we knew what we were setting ourselves up for getting any City outfielders. Bail out now and leave them well alone in future.

          LiveFPL's all-time best managers captaincy picks GW6:

          Ronaldo 76.7%
          Salah 20.4%
          Antonio 2.1%
          Fernandes 0.5%
          Greenwood 0.1%
          Gray 0.1%
          Sarr 0.1%

            sarr lol

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            With all the talk on Antonio I expected more than 2%

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 5 days ago

              Don't be deceived - a small minority here tend to repeat-post prolifically.

              1. mynameisq
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Yup, so obvious. Lots of the time deliberately doing repeat posts to cause panic to benefit themselves

              2. gogs67
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  And a lot of people who post with their 'edgy' (c) picks change back to the safe option at the last minute.
                  I have Antonio (c) and I'm kinda wishing now I'd just gone Salah lol

              3. Sun Jihai
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Yeah, think he's as good an option as Salah tbh. Leeds conceding on average more than 12 shots in the box per game so far, the most in the league.

            Pep roulette success_KDB and Jesus.
            Now I need them to bust the Chelsk defence.

          4. F4L
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            The midfield 3 enabling a James start, you love to see it.

          5. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 5 days ago

            Cancelo, Lukaku, Ronaldo(C), Greenwood & Shaw

            Need minimum 40 points from you lot!

            1. Mozumbus
                2 months, 5 days ago

                Cancelo + Lukaku = 8
                Ronaldo(C) + Greenwood + Shaw = 20
                Total 28

                1. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
                  • 5 Years
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  Hope that’s not the case 🙁

                  1. Mozumbus
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Ronaldo(C) has got high ceiling. So as the other two MU players. Lukaku and Cancelo hedge each other.

                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  Took Torres out on wildcard in GW5. The only positive of my season so far 😀

                  1. AzzaroMax99
                    • 5 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    Took him out for Gray (-4) xD
                    Success xD

                  2. HMC
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 11 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    brought him in on gw5 wildcard!
                    quickly rectified that before deadline to Sarr

                    1. DycheDycheBaby
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Good move. I'm worried not having Sarr.

                  3. Nomar
                    • 12 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    got him after his haul and he’s done naff all since.

                    My fault as I knew the likely risks getting him, but at least I’ve got 2 FT now.

                    I will ship his ass out this week and have enough to get rid of Digne for Alonso with my other free, so I’ll take the benching this week and move on from those two trolls.

                  I've a template rating of 55% and for some reason that scares me!

                  1. Andy_Social
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    Why? Are you a sheep? I was on 37% a couple of weeks ago and achieved an OR in the Top 500. Gone more template and dropped like a stone.

                    1. Baberto
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Yeah, I went for a few odd pics in the WC but wasn't expecting this much differential. It worked out for you, hope it doesn't break me.

                    47% for me!
                    it was 80% 3 weeks ago

                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    Template is the biggest myth going in this 'industry'

                    1. Baberto
                      • 7 Years
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      Template is a physical representation of the ownership percentages. What's your perspective to call it a myth?

                      1. Andy_Social
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 9 Years
                        2 months, 5 days ago

                        'Myth' is not a term I'd use; the term I'd use is "irrelevant". I pick players I believe will score the most points. Whether or not others agree with me is of no interest to me.

                      2. Bennerman
                        • 3 Years
                        2 months, 5 days ago

                        On that mathematical regard, there is such a thing, but it probably needs another name, a better name.

                        Because 'template' is used in here so often in regard to commenting on anyone's team because they have well-known and popular players, but actual the pool they talk about as 'template' includes loads of players (at very least 30?) so in fact there is scope for huge variation within the so-called 'template'. Add in one or two 'non-template' players that everyone has to have for cost purposes, and you have an enormous range of possibilities within a supposed 'template'. Some maths guy could work it out, variables would be huge

                        It massively depends on all the many, many other players' scores.
                        It really ain't all about EO like some pencil-heads here claim

                      Trusted today in their toughest game, looks like he’s above silva in the pecking order

                        No. Silva just can't play every game.

                          Even better, hopefully silva plays the CL, will be doubled with rudiger by next week which will hopefully guarantee 1 starter every week even if it’s a bit boring

                    Totally. Especially good news to see him preferred to Thiago Silva here

                      Tuchel just said Thaigo would have played had he not had an injury issue

                      So around 4 points per game when starting with a good first sub, not to bad for 5m, a lot better than Semado and digne

                        No, around 3.5 points per game and taking up a Chelsea slot

                          42 points divided by 9 games started (as stated when starting in my post that you replied to)

                          = 4.6

                            The 0’s are where he comes off the bench and gets booked

                    I'd imagine he plays most Prem games with Silva playing Champions League. I could be completely wrong though.

                    1. Hairy Potter
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 5 days ago

                      And sounds from the above that I'm wrong! I'm fine having him at the minute and will add another Chelsea def in the next week or so.

                  It's nice having absolutely no FPL involvement in the early game/big team clash and just being able to watch it for fun.

                  Anyone heard any news about the South American players and the international break? I'm guessing that anyone off on international duty won't be back for the following GW.

                    thought they relaxed the rules for all red-flagged countries

                      The third South American matches in the break are on the day before the first GW8 fixtures.

                    Brazil and Argentina have games on 15 October so unlikely the players will play week 8 fixtures on 16 October

                  Tuchel quotes : Thiago had some issues in training otherwise he would have started

                    • 8 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    Yup, that said with his age he's not going to be able to play that many and will pick up lots of injuries so Christensen is a good option

                  2. Daniyal
                    • 10 Years
                    2 months, 5 days ago

                    yes expected Azpi to be on RB with James on bench if Thiago was available

                      This is what I had expected too.

                        Thiago and James have started in Chelsea's last 3 wins against City I think

                  Thoughts on Ronaldo > Lukaku for next few weeks? Would intend on captaining the latter most games.

                    Decent option but see how Southampton perform again. They're looking more solid than initially thought.

                13. Hairy Potter
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 5 days ago

                  Some points from Shaw today would be nice.

                  Douglas Luiz is nailed right? Or is there a better £4.6m MF?

                  Minus 4 ( Lukaku rising tonight, only £0.1m leeway )
