      Raph

    2. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Decent chance of starting

    3. Sᴄʜᴜ̈RRʟᴇ ⓝ
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      He’ll start

    4. smash

      Ralph might not play GW8 I keep seeing

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        this is what's causing me to not go Gray to Raph

  2. Futureform
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Ronaldo captaining - is the early kick off putting you off?!!

    1. GE
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No

    2. Puntillimon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Has put me off indeed

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What are you doing instead?!

    3. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No, last week has trained me

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        What happened last week?

        1. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          He blanked in an early kickoff

        2. Futureform
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Ah, so you ARE put off?

    4. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      If I had Fernandes I'd be tempted to captain him, had a good record in 12.30 KO last season and as well against Everton

    5. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Talk he doesn't play 90 but who would Ole be resting him for, Portugal?

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Do you mean doesn't start?!!

    6. N1ceguyEdd1e
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Nope, locked on (C) Ronnie here for me

    7. TomSaints
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Absolutely. 9 blank captains in early kick off out of 12 in past 3 seasons

      It’s cursed!

      1. Futureform
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        That's my thinking. Plus if they do well you still have the hope of another chance.

      2. Don Van Vliet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Superstition is for the lily-livered.

    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Shaw ➡ Rudiger for -4?
    Bench order correct?:

        Ooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww …. Always deadline rumours … all very exciting …. CR7 … all this chatter but no one posting anything to back it at all …. Andy at LTFPL panicking as people are DMing him on his live screen saying he’s benched …. Good god .. not very fair if people are on the wind up … poor.

        Ronaldo or Lukaku captain?

      14. Nightf0x
        • 6 Years
