    At least the guy who moans about his mate copying Andy can shut up now

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      He probably still copied LOL

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

        3 months, 22 days ago

        DAT GUY KANEZ (WELBZ)

      Stream got around 200 dislikes from copycats.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Serves them right, what's the point in setting up a team to copy? May as well save the time and not set one up and just be a 'supporter'.

        Play your own game.

  2. Thomas Magnum
    • 6 Years

    I hope Lingard starts. What more does he have to do to earn a starting role at this point?

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

      Extend his contract

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        After not getting a start in the league all year?

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

          I mean I agree to your point but he has only 1 year left - can't start him if he doesn't extend innit

    2. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      I agree his minutes per goal is best in leauge

  3. NABIL - FPL otai
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 22 days ago

    Bruno haul incoming?

    Yes please

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

      This!

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

      5pts haul

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        15*

        1. Mozumbus
            3 months, 22 days ago

            Anything between 5-15 would be good

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        His last dance in my side

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

          Likely for me too with Kdb pencilled in next gw

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

        Would be tasty that

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

        Imminent I think
        Very unfortunate in recent GWs
        Stats have actually been as good as last season in terms of xGI since Ronaldo joined

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

      Andy starts the rumour just so he can WC haha classic Andy!!

    4. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 22 days ago

      What a ridiculous rumour, as if ole is going to drag Ronaldo on 60 if they need a goal lol, piss.

    5. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Ronaldo is getting binned for next GW, these keeper howlers won’t continue forever!

    6. Revival
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Had a dream last night that Antonio scored a last minute winner. Have still stuck with Ron (C) do.

      1. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Don’t get points for dreams

    7. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Good luck everyone.

      Could be a high scoring week with lots of strong teams at home.

    8. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Def been the hardest gw of the season to navigate so far.. hope these Ronaldo rumours aren’t true but seems odd before international break

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

        Rumours? Go on...

        1. Gandalf
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Just the stuff people have talking about on previous pages about a potential benching

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

            Ah OK, I didn't read the previous pages. Just got in fro. Morning with 3 reckless kids and had to do some panic transfers!

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

      @FPLInfo reliable?

      Ronaldo starts
      Greenwood benched
      Shaw starts
      Chilwell starts

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

        How would he know

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Surely they wouldn't have the Chelsea lineup already

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

          Yeah seems sus, maybe just trolling

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

        Not really

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

        No, no way he can know this early for Chelsea so he's just guessing

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

        Chilwell is the clue

      6. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Just came across this account on twitter and doesn't seem reliable.

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

          It’s definitely fake lol, not that it matters post deadline anyway

    10. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Oh no. What have I done?

    11. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Playing your WC 'last minute decision' is like being caught with your pants down wearing a pink pair of panties.

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

        Speaking from experience I presume

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

          Could be female I guess?

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

      BigManBakar has hit the WC button

      1. Hazz

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

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

            Never said that! Doesn't even link the tweets he copies 🙂

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

          Bit harsh

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

            I don't care when he's spammed 'Ronaldo rumoured to start' &' Ronaldo rumoured benched' in the last few mins lol.

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

          Then bugger off

      2. Hulk Smash

        Why?

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

          To change couple of defenders

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

            Yeah having TAA, Shaw and Ayling all doubts/out has been the main motivator for a lot of people, myself included

      3. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        Thanks for the info genuinely… not all of us bother with Twatter.

      Andy is such a knee jerker. I mean come on!

      1. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Bullsh!tter more like. No way has he hit a late wc.

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

          He did

          1. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 22 days ago

            I mean a late decision. He obviously had it planned all week then did it last minute for dramatic effect.

        2. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 22 days ago

          Did it live on stream apparently

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

          He did last couple of minutes

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

        These lot certainly know how to trick people and garner attention, that’s for sure.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        He did it on live stream, I was watching with some amusement … good WC though.

    16. Dark Side Of The Loon!
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      With the kind of form they are in, do we actually think Ole can afford to bench Ronaldo? Imagine United lose and Ronaldo only comes on at 65 min. Do we think Ole can risk that?

      1. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        3 months, 22 days ago

        No way cr7 will be benched. They Don't have the luxury to do this. Just lost against villa at home and ronaldo is their talisman

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 6 Years

        Does he get paid for sharing tips and his team by his followers? If he doesn't then he can do what he wants but if he's getting paid then this is kind of douchey.

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

          Fair play. If there are people out there who pay for tips then that’s hilarious. Milk them for every last penny.

          1. FPL Brains

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

          I am not so sure. His reputation is built off of how he performs really. If he felt before deadline that the WC team is going to do better in the long run then so be it. A lot of people activated WC near the deadline. The people cribbing can still take all of the advice he had given on his team pre deadline to make any tough decisions and only those copying are upset.

        3. Zim0

        Ha. Never really use that site but had a little read. He’s got genuine disciples who make decisions based on his.

      3 months, 22 days ago

      I guess we're going to know in couple minutes about Ronaldo but paddy changed his odds of "one shot on target in a game" from 1.04 to 2.0 so there might be something true about Ronaldo benched, just saying...

      1. Gandalf
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 22 days ago

        Those odds were there last night also as caught my eye, so maybe they knew something before all of us

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

          Yeah, forgot to say I checked it in the morning, interesting stuff.

    22. MDynamite
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Ronaldo benched, Cavani starts.

      Pogba benched.

      Shaw starts.

      Good luck all

          I figure he’ll either play or he won’t. Hopefully.

            That’s sounds obvious. Hell either start or stay on the bench is what I mean.

        Could work out - if he starts! I brought him in for a hit 😀

      My guess with absolutely no foundation.
      Ronaldo starts , Greenwood benched.

    29. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 22 days ago

      Kane to hit 6 goals and become top scorer
