    Ok, so Ronaldo benching rumours made me switch armband to Antonio. Now watch the goat haul big.

      On who's rumour though, did you take a good source?

      1. Rassi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        No. It was a rushed decision, not happy about it at all.

      2. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Apparently Ronaldo will come off 60-70 mark due to him playing the full midweek game. Source is the guy who usually gets early United tesnsheets.

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Yeah me too.

    3. lilmessipran
      • 9 Years

      Messi plays tomorrow

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I did the same.

  2. Yankee Toffee
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Eve to beat Man U and go top for today at least…

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      No chance. Ronaldo will start and score a hattrick

    CR7 HATTRICK INCOMING

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Yes please

    2. GE
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Hope so (C)

  4. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Why would Ronaldo be benched? Ole resting him for Portugal?
    Some of these deadline rumours 😀

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      To make Andy WC

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Terrible!

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      My thoughts also. Although I was that much of a 50/50 with the captaincy that I've put it on Lukaku.

  5. Superninteno Chalmers
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Ronaldo rumoured to be playing for Man Utd today

  6. mynameisq
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Stop repeating no Ronaldo ya plebs

    1 rumour

    And 1 man utd talk show guy just tweeted "ffs" but that could be about Fred starting for all we know

  7. Original - Wolves Ay We
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    PENS DOWN!

    That's it! 3 Teams disqualified for making transfers after the deadline!

  8. Hotdogs for Tea
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Last minutes switch of the band to Lukaku from Ronaldo

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I’d have done that regardless.

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        EO?

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Oh that never influences me. Just think he’s the best option this week.

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            when there is not much on it I go for the player with an EO over 100 … hate it when my player scores and I fall in rank due to EO

  9. Gabbiadini
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Lukaku as captain over Ronaldo seems to be the correct decision with that late news, not worth the risk, is it?

    1. Jam0sh
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      We'll see after they have played

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Yes, we will.
        The majority was already of the opinion that Lukaku was the better choice.

        1. Jam0sh
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Yes

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Lukaku would always have been my cap if I had him.

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah. I have both hence the indecision of captain, but trading Ronaldo to Lukaku like some have done is definitely something I wouldn't do on the basis of team news.

  10. Lindelol

    Ramsdale
    Rudiger Cancelo Laporte White (Livra)
    Salah Raph Saka (Brownhil, Doug. Luiz)
    Lukaku Ronaldo(C) Antonio

    Ended up with this WC team 🙁 🙁
    Season over
    1. Yes
    2. No
    3.
    4.

    1. Dusty Donut
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I like it

    2. Diedhiou See That?
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Looks good

    3. Pedersen
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      1 yes, 3 screwed up, 4 delete team
      Other than that i wouldn't have done this. Midfielders always ends up with most points and this doesn't follow that logic

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        this is not the team for whole season and currently no reliable mid

  11. lordkippe
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Ronaldo and Jota to Lukaku captain and Raphinha for me. Keeping the structure with 2 bog hitters the reasoning.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Sounds crap

  12. DA Minnion (Former great)
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Rumour that Ronaldo will blank today. Not confirmed yet.

    1. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      haha - hope its completely not true

  13. the dom 1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Missed the deadline so looks like i have CR7 (C) and Antonio (VC)... was actually about to twist and put the armband on on Antonio ... GL all 🙂

  14. Free Hat
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    If he does a cameo like Salah vs Crystal palace last season Im all fine with it!

  15. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Pen is down

  16. JJO
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Yeah he got DM and wildcarded in last 2mins 🙂
    What a BS

    1. Joey Tribbiani
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      are you one of those copying him? xD

      1. JJO
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Of course not.
        I wouldnt play this game just to copy someones team or transfers

    2. MGD
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Haha, well played..

    3. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Probably planned it all along for entertainment value

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Hopefully that "Ronaldo bench" message wasn't for entertainment purpose because it's not funny at all 😀

      2. JJO
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Yeah that was my thought

    4. Louis Van Gaalstones
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Why is it BS?

      1. Ginkapo FPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Bill Sanderson used to do the same thing

  17. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Imagine owning a 12.7m washed up rotation risk

    1. Gomolon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Kane?

  18. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Took a last minute -8

    OUT Ronaldo Jota TAA

    IN Lukaku(c) Son Azpi

    Will either LOVE to see it or have NOWHERE to hide.

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      NOWHERE to hide

    2. Gudjohnsen
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Looks good on paper

      3 nailed players for one injured and one rotation risk.

    3. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Just don’t panic after Ronaldo hails. They’re not bad moves assuming you plan to bring Trent back in

  19. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Son (C) lets gooooo!

  20. Hotdogs for Tea
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Any news on whether Ronaldo will blank to day ? 🙂

  21. Gudjohnsen
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Ronaldo starts or?

  22. Teahupo'o
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    How long does it take to update this season?

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Half an hour or so

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      A lot less. Sometimes just 25 minutes

      1. Skogen89
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        That's a lot 🙂

    3. Teahupo'o
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      Cheers

  23. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years

    Maybe I should have captained Antonio instead of Ronaldo but dont regret not using WC

  24. Norco
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Andy revving up the drama with that WC "last minute" decision

    1. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Haha anyone that believes that was "last minute" probably has a healthy supply of magic beans

      1. Norco
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Haha was a little painful to watch but hey each to their own

        1. mynameisq
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Tbf he has to do it like that, if people knew he would do it they'd just be spamming him and try to copy the team exactly

        2. kamdaraji
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Which Andy is this? The podcast guy?

    2. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Andy of LTFPL?

    3. Bury94
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      He really knows how to pull on the viewers, fair play

  25. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    LR with Raphinha (C)

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      He will blank because I got him for a hit.

  26. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Ronaldo rumored to be benched?

    Sold him just for the lols might work out now

    1. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Fake news

  27. tbos83
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more

  28. Fake Prince
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Pen Down - probably out for season.

  29. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years

    Antonio captain. No regrets. 🙂

    1. Krafty Werks
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Same, no regrets 4-2 Irons, Antonio brace!!

  30. Meechoo115
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Rushed three decisions in last five mins

      A. Grealish to son for a hit
      B. Benched White for Gray
      C. Switched Ronaldo to Antonio cap
