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

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      He probably still copied LOL

      1. KAPTAIN KANE

      Stream got around 200 dislikes from copycats.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 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

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

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

      Extend his contract

      1. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        After not getting a start in the league all year?

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

      I agree his minutes per goal is best in leauge

  3. NABIL - FPL otai

    Bruno haul incoming?

    Yes please

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years

    2. Holmes

      1. Hy liverpool

        1. Mozumbus
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Anything between 5-15 would be good

      2. Thomas Magnum
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        His last dance in my side

        1. Milkman Bruno
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Likely for me too with Kdb pencilled in next gw

        2. Milkman Bruno
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Would be tasty that

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 4 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
          2 months, 4 days ago

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

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

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

        6. Revival
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

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

            • 12 Years

            Don’t get points for dreams

        7. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Good luck everyone.

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

        8. Gandalf
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 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
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Rumours? Go on...

            1. Gandalf
              • 11 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

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

              1. Sharkytect
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 4 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
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          @FPLInfo reliable?

          Ronaldo starts
          Greenwood benched
          Shaw starts
          Chilwell starts

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

            How would he know

          2. Thomas Magnum
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Surely they wouldn't have the Chelsea lineup already

            1. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Yeah seems sus, maybe just trolling

          3. kamdaraji
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Not really

          4. mynameisq
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

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

          5. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            Chilwell is the clue

          6. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 4 days ago

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

            1. Sun Jihai
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

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

        10. Sharkytect
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

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

            • 10 Years

            Speaking from experience I presume

            1. Milkman Bruno
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Could be female I guess?

          2. Inazuma X1
            • 4 Years

            BigManBakar has hit the WC button

                  2 months, 4 days ago

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

              Why?

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                To change couple of defenders

                  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 ...

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

              • 11 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

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

                He did

                  • 11 Years
                  2 months, 4 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
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 4 days ago

                Did it live on stream apparently

                • 8 Years
                2 months, 3 days ago

                He did last couple of minutes

            2. Rupert The Horse
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years

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

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

              2 months, 4 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
                2 months, 4 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

              Livra

                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.

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

                    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.

                  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...

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

                  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.

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

                12. KAPTAIN KANE

                  Kane to hit 6 goals and become top scorer
