    This weeks odds looked all over the place to me. Wolves and Soton similar CS odds (I'd favor Wolves quite a bit). Arsenal CS odds being like 35% seemed weird as well. NLD without Son or Kane scoring? Can't see that happening.

      I don’t know. Based on results so far, that all seems pretty accurate to me. Wolves have only kept 1 cs to Saints 2 (against better opponents).

      Spurs have 2 goals in 5 games right? Just like Arsenal. Son was missing for some of those mind and he will be the difference. I sold Kane this week so I think he scores.

    FPL can you not post all the week’s articles at the top of page on Match day.

    Absolutely useless on mobile with pages jumping round & looking at today hardly anyone replies!

    Probably gave up waiting for pages to load!

    1. Cojones of Destiny

      this

      FPL? Is their site as cack as this one?

      Glad I wasn’t the only one who experienced the bouncing

    4. Magic Zico

      Agree, please

    I’m sorry Antonio I didn’t have the footballs to captain you, you can punish me all you want. Time to enjoy the AFL grand final until kick off 🙂

    Most boring transfer I had ever did
    Steele > Foster to waste a FT since I had 2

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

      Might turn out to serve you well further down the road.

      1. Viprin
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Yeah was lucky to have no pressing issues with all the injuries this week. Feels good to still have 2FT next week.

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      That's great transfer

  5. Andy_Social

    A second week with full use of my bench, looks like. If they step up with 5 points each again, I won't complain!

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Livramento CS away to City was filthy.

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 4 days ago

      Can see myself having to rely on Allan again this week which isn't ideal, although I was extremely grateful for the 2pts from him last week and not less!

  6. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    I've already accepted my red arrow this week maybe that will dull the pain? 😀

    1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
      • 5 Years

      If you have Ronaldo and Salah you’re pretty safe, unlike me lol

      1. Ze_Austin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Really wish you joined me with Antonio C, Kap

        1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 4 days ago

          I’m still a Bruno belieber, also have this mental block with only capping players 10+

          1. Ze_Austin
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 4 days ago

            That harmed me when I capped Kane over Antonio in GW3. My rank hasn't recovered

            1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 4 days ago

              I know Spurs hadn’t created many chances in the first 2 but Watford at home with Kane back made sense at the time.
              Oh well plenty of time for us 🙂

              1. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                9 months, 4 days ago

                Yup! Good luck

                1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
                  • 5 Years

      I've forgotten what one look like 😉

  7. Champ

    Haven't seen Trincao play yet with wolves.... How's he looking anyone?

    1. BENOIT
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      All fart and no poo.

      1. PocketZola
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 4 days ago

        Silent and deadly?

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

      He looks good in spots, but he's been a bit inconsistent match to match. Does have shooting ability, but we all know Wolves' finishing issues.

      Troubling thing about him is he often does not finish the match, often subbed for Podence.

    3. Champ
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Cheers guys

  8. Chief Break-Everything

    Couldn't work out what to do.. so I missed the deadline and ended up rolling the FT. Best of luck everyone.

    Sanchez
    TAA Shaw Semedo Duffy
    Salah Jota Sarr Raiphinha

      2. Holmes

        I was hoping for him to be ruled out 😀

  10. PocketZola

      Same think I might need them

  12. TheTinman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 4 days ago

    Should I captain Ronaldo or leave it on Lukaku?

    1. Mince Depay
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 4 days ago

      You have left it on Lukaku

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

      Lukaku it is

    3. Stupendous

      Too late

    4. ALI_G

      well you have a week to decide now

    5. Holmes
      • 8 Years

      Luka vs SOU is better

    Hey all,

    Just been talking to the editorial team about the bouncing pages. We're aware of the issues with pages loading weirdly (and giving half the site seasickness, sorry!) but we're pretty confident we'll have it fixed for next week or some good alternative. Basically it comes down to how the site loads these blocks (previously the issue was tweets, now it's these linked articles).

    Really sorry it's been an issue for everyone, the next dugout discussion will be up in 30 mins or so to replace this one.

    1. g40steve
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Cheers, pages fill so fast on match day & just unusable waiting to load on mobile 🙂

    2. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON

      I think a Notification Center would be a good idea 🙂

    Good luck everyone. This is the week I break into the top 10k

    1. Ze_Austin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Or, maybe... This is the week I break

    2. Houldsworth Hatter

      I’m around 15k and confident I may tension in the top 50k!!

  18. Sillet Bang

    On about 15 hits already lost count! I need to retire from game

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

      If it's gained you more than 60 points, no problem 😉

      1. Gunneryank
          9 months, 4 days ago

          Haha right? Maths 😀

      2. Gunneryank
          9 months, 4 days ago

          I've seen some teams rocket up in rank after a handful of hits...just depends on if you get it right.

        • NateDog
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 4 days ago

          If it helps I checked my stats from last season and took over -90 from hits, shocking. Said I'd make a proper effort to not take many this season and be patient and I've gotten this far without any but it can all turn and injuries and suspensions and rotation can force your hand

          1. Don Rogers FC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 4 days ago

            Where can you access last years stats ?

              • 1 Year
              9 months, 4 days ago

              I think it was this site: http://www.fplretro.com/create

              I did it during the summer before this seasons' game opened

            Knew it, glad he's benched but moved him from 3rd to 1st sub, wish I'd gone 3rd now but you never know

          Predictions for Jimenez and Harvey Barnes points wise this week?

            Thanks Hazz, Werner could cause some issues

            1. KAPTAIN KANE’S SON
              • 5 Years
              9 months, 4 days ago

              For City defense OR Lukaku owners.
              See which Werner turns up

          2. No Need
            • 8 Years

            no Silva interesting

              Wednesday - Juventus. Expected.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years

            3-5-2 might finally unlock Werner

          4. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            9 months, 4 days ago

            Wow Werner? Interesting, they've barely played together but guess he think his pace will stop the City backline advancing so much?

            1. PartyTime
                9 months, 4 days ago

                Now watch Ole start Cavani & Ronaldo upfront

                    9 months, 4 days ago

                    My bad

                • 12 Years
                9 months, 4 days ago

                Jorginho Kovacic Kante all start, plus 5 defenders? Don't think so. Unless Alonso plays #10...

              • NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years

                No player from City vs Chelsea

                Gulp

              • SHOWSTOPPERRR
                • 4 Years
                9 months, 4 days ago

                Honestly thinks Werner will do more good for kaku , the runs Werner makes opens up spaces for kaku.

              • Milkman Bruno
                • 1 Year
                9 months, 4 days ago

                If Pep wants to get his “tactics” right for this Chelsea game, he needs to target those wingbacks all game and attack really wide to stop them going forward as much.

            2. Stupendous
              • 9 Years

              I Benched James. Ugh!

                same but think it was still wise. if he cements a spot thats fine for their good run of games
