      How did he look at the start of the week.

        Has a big fan base, apparently....

        Probably not

        Not the pros. Casuals are his audience. That's why so many of them are fuming right now. And I have to say, from their perspective, rightly so.

          I'd say this site is the same, this is where casuals hang around for sure

            I think it's a mixed bag

        A lot, and it’s pretty damn funny.

      What is the drama? Please report

        Nothing. Played a wildcard

          So what's the issue with playing a WC?

          1. Ginkapo FPL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years

            Too much excitement for this lot

              Seems like it

      There are very few 'big' FPL accounts I like. Most of them are proper garbage.

          True. Remember last year some Lee guy conned his followers just to get at his wife.
          But more funny is that many people are following these "experts" blindly. Some are even paying their hard earned money on patreons and stuff ffs

            I'm Andy's patreon but I couldn't care less about his moves, playing WC and so on. I pay cause I like him and his streams, don't get all the fuss right now, he's a little bit of entertainer as many of YT streamers nowadays.

    5. ANGRY PERSON
        1 month, 28 days ago

        What did he do ?

      • Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        That last minute WC drama was completely unnecessary. Who does that? But good he didn't care about posting his team before deadline for people to copy it.

        1. MOZIL
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I agree, it was unnecessary, if he doesnt want to share why bother openning a youtube channel.

          1. Ginkapo FPL
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      • Bubz

        How so?

      • HollywoodXI
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        I think that’s a bit harsh. Andy did exactly the same thing last season, when he didn’t have anywhere near the following he has now. He had said all week he was likely going to do it last minute and had his team planned. I didn’t watch the live stream but I did hear he didn’t post his team until after the deadline to ensure people couldn’t copy it which is positive.

        1. MOZIL
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          ya but he didnt do that this time

      • Cilly Bonnolly
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Haven’t watched his streams this week but from what I hear he’s been saying all week he might wildcard late. If that’s true, what’s the issue?

      • ANGRY PERSON
          1 month, 28 days ago

          People are mad at him for playing a last minute wildcard ! Geez

        • Hotdogs for Tea
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          I saw a tweet that said he may play a late WC. In fairness his team was a bit of a mess with flags etc and I think we have all been in that position … let a -8 go through or press the WC button.

          We are all human and can’t always package our decisions up into nice pockets and sometimes we just go for it.

          He is probably not too fussed and is loving the click bait 🙂

        Lol. Why would ole bench Ronaldo? I mean why? They just lost to villa at home, barely won against villareal- thanks to ronaldo. Ronaldo clearly is their talisman now. Utd cant afford to lose another match at home. Ole will bench him Only if he is psycho mad

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Cavani looked pretty fresh.

        2. Mozumbus
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Convincing reasons why ole shall not bench Ronaldo.
            What could be the reasons, even if not convincing, for ole to bench Rolando?

            1. Adetro
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              Maybe Ronaldo wants to be as fresh as possible ahead of international matches against Qatar and Luxembourg, where he could easily add 6 goals to his international tally.

              1. Mozumbus
                  1 month, 28 days ago

                  Age

              So you just answered your own question. Apparently Ole also talks to himself.

            3. GreennRed
              • 10 Years
              1 month, 28 days ago

              It's a long season and Ronaldo still has international commitments. He'll be advised by S&C and other coaches. Even if he looks in peak fitness today he and all players need rest.

              lol

          • acidicleo
            • 5 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            I talked myself out of Ron to Rom for a hit at the last minute..

            Reasoning - Ron's next 2 opponents (Everton and Leicester)
            conceding more goals than Rom's next two (Southampton and Brentford)

            Ron to Kaku for GW9 Norwich fixture..

            Will see how it pans out but I hope the logic is reasonable..

            1. jackruet
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              1 month, 28 days ago

              This is the Most sensible logic. But can fail easily.

              The point is its you making the decision with a reason behind it. Good luck with your decision.

              I went for some bold changes with my wildcard, may well regret it but exciting weekend ahead!

              Ramsdale (Foster)
              Cancelo, Duffy, Rudiger, (Livramento, Manquillo)
              Salah, Sarr, Gallagher, Raphina (Douglas L)
              Antonio, Lukaku (c), Ronaldo.

              Fingers crossed, needed to shake things up after two poor, poor weeks.

                Bold? Looks like many teams here but good luck, always good to get a green arrow after WC.

                Where are the bold changes ? Gallagher to Mbeumo and Ramsdale and Duffy to Sanchez and White and you've got the same as me.

                Does ot matter?

                United have lost an important game so Pogba will no longer put effort into playing. Maguire is injured and the manager doesnt know how to set up a team. Doesnt matter who plays up front if the midfield is anonymous

                Watford's next 8 fixtures are:

                Liverpool (H)
                Everton (A)
                Southampton (H)
                Arsenal (A)
                Man United (H)
                Leicester (A)
                Chelsea (H)
                Man City (H)

                As an owner of Sarr, my question is should I take him out for this run or trust in him to get points regardless because he's their main man?

                    Sounds like Ronaldo benched.

                    Glad I took off the captaincy and gave it to Raphinha(?) Disappointed I didn't do the -4 for Lukaku.

                        Agree. Ronaldo is too good. Which means he gets goals and assists, even if afforded fewer minutes on the pitch.

                      We probably know how this is going to end: Ronaldo bench, Lukaku blank, and Salah brace.

                        Nah. Ronaldo will get a late goal to punish all those that sold him and think they are winning (at least at the moment) just because he is benched.

                      Meh was worth the risk holding Ronaldo as last min rumours are rarely true.

                      Salah came off the bench for a double digit haul last season

                        Depends how the game goes

                        If they’re losing at half time - no way
                        If it’s a draw with 60 minutes to go - no way
                        If they’re more than a goal up though, he might stay there
