    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
        2 months, 1 day ago

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

      2. Amartey Partey
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day 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
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah me too.

    3. lilmessipran

      Messi plays tomorrow

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I did the same.

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

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

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No chance. Ronaldo will start and score a hattrick

  3. Netflix and chilwell

    CR7 HATTRICK INCOMING

    1. Milkman Bruno
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes please

      • GE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Hope so (C)

    2. Sun Jihai

      • 9 Years

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

      1. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        To make Andy WC

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Terrible!

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

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

    3. Superninteno Chalmers
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Ronaldo rumoured to be playing for Man Utd today

    4. mynameisq
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day 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

    5. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      PENS DOWN!

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

    6. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years

      Last minutes switch of the band to Lukaku from Ronaldo

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I’d have done that regardless.

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          EO?

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

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

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • 6 Years
              2 months, 1 day 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

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

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

      1. Jam0sh
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        We'll see after they have played

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

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

          1. Jam0sh
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Yes

      2. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

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

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

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

      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

        I like it

      2. Diedhiou See That?
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Looks good

      3. Pedersen
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day 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
          2 months, 1 day ago

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

    9. lordkippe
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day 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
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Sounds crap

    10. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Rumour that Ronaldo will blank today. Not confirmed yet.

      1. Lindelol
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        haha - hope its completely not true

    11. the dom 1
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day 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 🙂

    12. Free Hat
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

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

    13. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Pen is down

    14. JJO
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. Joey Tribbiani
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        are you one of those copying him? xD

        1. JJO
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

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

      2. MGD
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Haha, well played..

      3. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Probably planned it all along for entertainment value

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

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

        2. JJO
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah that was my thought

      4. Louis Van Gaalstones
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Why is it BS?

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Bill Sanderson used to do the same thing

    15. Cok3y5murf
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Imagine owning a 12.7m washed up rotation risk

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

        Kane?

    16. Nightcrawler
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day 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
        2 months, 1 day ago

        NOWHERE to hide

      2. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Looks good on paper

        3 nailed players for one injured and one rotation risk.

      3. Milkman Bruno
          2 months, 1 day ago

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

      4. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Son (C) lets gooooo!

      5. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Any news on whether Ronaldo will blank to day ? 🙂

      6. Gudjohnsen
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Ronaldo starts or?

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

          Half an hour or so

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          A lot less. Sometimes just 25 minutes

          1. Skogen89
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            That's a lot 🙂

      8. Iceball
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

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

      9. Norco
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

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

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

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

          1. Norco
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

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

            1. mynameisq
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 1 day 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

      10. Inazuma X1
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        LR with Raphinha (C)

        1. Gudjohnsen
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          He will blank because I got him for a hit.

      11. Nightcrawler
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Ronaldo rumored to be benched?

        Sold him just for the lols might work out now

        1. Sun Jihai
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          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
