    game back up but showing last weeks points?

      Mine's fine.

      Dodged a Torres shaped bullet!

      7 months, 23 days ago

      Fluid front 5 from Pep. Nobody really has a position there

      1. Esalman
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        That's why Chelsea has 8 defensive players+keeper.

    • PartyTime
        7 months, 23 days ago

        3 game weeks ago Torres was nailed. People even said he is City’s new striker & Pep is training him in that role.

        Torres benched yet again.

        Oof

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          He should be back when fixtures ease up.

      • AIRMILES
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Updated

      • Milkman Bruno
        • 1 Year
        7 months, 23 days ago

        Laporte was fit after all

      • NABIL - FPL otai
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 23 days ago

        I plan to keep Bruno until GW12 (wat).

        Am I being patient or stubborn?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 23 days ago

          would say stubborn, watch him vs Villa. Will give you better idea.

          1. NABIL - FPL otai
            • 9 Years
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Perhaps you're right.

            Unlucky not to get assist last GW though

        2. PartyTime
            7 months, 23 days ago

            Would say Loyal

            1. NABIL - FPL otai
              • 9 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              My wife is a proud woman

              1. PartyTime
                  7 months, 23 days ago

                  🙂

            2. Thomas Magnum
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              I’m thinking I drop him next or week after next to bring in Lukaku tbh

              1. NABIL - FPL otai
                • 9 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Contemplating that move too. But can just downgrade Ron

            3. Mozumbus
                7 months, 23 days ago

                I've him but no plan to keep him post GW7/8 WC. Captaining this week. I'm already feeling stubborn.

                1. NABIL - FPL otai
                  • 9 Years
                  7 months, 23 days ago

                  Not necessarily. Interesting differential nowadays

            4. Kodap
              • 4 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Right Torres is gone, am I allowed to make an angry transfer out before the matches have even started? Cba with him not even getting a run out when he’s arguably been their best player.

              1. AC/DC AFC
                • 6 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Wouldn't transfer him out before a goal from the bench in a 2-1 loss?!

              2. JoeShmoe
                • 8 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Watch them blank again today and then Pep will have to play him as a 9 as that worked earlier in the season. I'm holding for 1 more week

            5. CroatianHammer
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Well, for all the flags, both Pensioners start, my solitary Red Devil was always starting. That's pressure off the bench. An early win.

              1. CroatianHammer
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 6 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                To clarify, I've benched James, but it means that if I need him to come on, he's in with a chance to haul.

            6. SADIO SANÉ
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              feels like Grealish is as close to nailed as you can get (Pep) - mad he hasn't become a bandwagon yet - although assister of assister type in this team maybe?

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Yeah, thats what his role looks like. From little bit I have seen, he doesnt even get in the box, just trying to run around the box.

              2. Ze_Austin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                Yup. That's the problem with him. And the lack of a finisher for his created chances

              3. mynameisq
                • 8 Years
                7 months, 23 days ago

                He would be essential if city actually had a main striker

            7. BlzE_94
              • 7 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              Hope i don't regret the james -> rudiger move

            8. DycheDycheBaby
              • 6 Years
              7 months, 23 days ago

              James owners rejoice!!! 😀

                • 9 Years

                Benched him. Oops.

                  • 6 Years
                  7 months, 23 days ago

                  😮 bench for whom?

              7 months, 23 days ago

              I guess I'm the only person who doesn't know this but why are there two 12.30s today?

                7 months, 23 days ago

                  To be fair he's commenting on a specific website about a specific thing, don't think this is something to pull out the 'first world problems' for

                  1. Bennerman
                    • 3 Years
                    7 months, 23 days ago

                    Would you say this to the plumber when he came round and said, "Going to have to get the plunger out," or something, would you roll your eyes and go "Blimey, charmed life you live, first world problems"

                    You one of those trossards?

                    It's a free "thing"/place, in a make believe "online", world, where we all waste our time talking about humans kicking a ball around a large area of grass.

                    Perspectives.

                      Perspective, that must be a joke!

                Hahaha back 5 for Villa as expected

                Ronaldo blank incoming

                Let's go Antonio (C)

                  Yep, we all know playing 5 at the back is the key to keeping a clean sheet lol

                  United can always switch to 2 up front to handle that. El matador is back

                    So Torres is benched, should I transfer out Torres for Sarr in Sky Sports Fantasy?
                    A. Yes
                    B. No

                    Still got 50 minute until GW 6 deadline

                      I benched Semedo for Raphina and now I’m left hoping Raphina doesn’t play

                      Does Andreas Christensen playing today mean he is now a fixed part of Chelsea defence or just mean he will be rested next week?! Really want him but worried about rotation

                        This week he is...

                          Basically god knows if he will play next week?!

                        If you pick Chelsea and ManCity players, you need a deep bench....

                        He will play more games than not. I've been pushing Christensen as a cheaper option - he typically does well BAPs-wise (more so than Rudiger) and is trusted by Tuchel, rightly so.

                          So worth getting for amartey GW7 if hsve TAA, shaw, semedo & Tsimi then?

                        No. Tuchel confirmed Silva had an issue in training this week.

                        Silva is first choice for the centre of the back 3.

                        Assuming Silva plays against Juve mid week, I'd "suggest" Christensen will start next weekend.

                        Assuming Silva has been picked for Brazil, I'd again "suggest" Christensen will start after the International break.

                        So likely to start the next 2, but I'm uncomfortable predicting Tuchel. Don't want to mislead anyone.

                          Thanks this is very helpful so basically wait til midweek before deciding

                        Link confirming Tuchel said Silva would have started.

                      Took a gamble and did Torres / Marcal / Williams to Cancelo / Alonson /McArthir for -8 before the price rise last week on $0 itb but feel so much better already with this team sheet.

                      Torres well and truly finished as an FPL option.

                        Thing about saying someone is 'overrated', it's as if you've canvassed everyone in the world's opinion on it, then cross-reffed against the known facts.

                        Which of course people who say it have some neither of.

                        Maybe an unpopular opinion but I think he’s massively overrated
