      So if the game is anything but dead and buried by 60 mins, potential CR7 1 pointer … ouch …. These rumours are absolute carnage and I guess when some out to be true it is very difficult to completely ignore them.

  7. Lindelol

    Hope United loses 3-0 - Thats the only redemption.

    Held off ronaldo and townsend > lukaku and raphinha, this is gonna end in tears

  9. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Wtf why is Martial starting.. we're going to lose this one again

    1. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ok, I am not that surprised to see Ronaldo benched and Cavani playing, that makes sense. But Martial over : Pogba, Lingard, Sancho ?!

      1. gonzalocampos
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Anyone over Sancho, bad player.

  10. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years

    Bruno on pens

    1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years

      No if they get one Ronaldo will come on.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Lol Mark Noble has banished that idea

    2. Kun, Ayew Nigerian?
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Scored in all his meetings against Everton.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yes

  11. Arteta
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Benching your best and fittest player makes total sense. You do you Ole.

    1. DA Minnion (Legendary manag…
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Sure Fred is starting.

    2. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Ole just needs to tread carefully here

      He’s pulling an elastic band right back towards his face with the VDB stuff & benching Ronny

      That thing can easily snap & put his eye out

  12. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years

    So this is the day the fpl season ends for me, ouch

  13. DycheDycheBaby

    Ole getting sacked in the morning....

  14. Rupert The Horse

    Well done those who went Ronaldo to Lukaku.
    I’m just glad Shaw starts.

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      -8 and still have Ron. Could have been a glorious week to free hit Wood, Jimenez and Aubameyang in.

    2. Nanoelektronicar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Did it last night, pure luck, nothing else. Not feeling proud about the move.

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Then don’t feel proud. Just enjoy the luck.

  15. Nightcrawler
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Sold ron for Lukaku(-4) a minute before the deadline without even knowing the rumour

    So luckyyy

    1. boc610
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      whoa nelly, hold your horses, that could still backfire

  16. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Who are your VCs Ronnie cappers?

    1. Lazaretti
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Sarr...

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      doesnt matter he will come on

    3. Salarrivederci
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Should not matter. He will come on when United are behind.

    4. Babit1967
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Salah but suspect Man U will need Ronaldo to come on

    5. Iceball
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Antonio, but surely Ronaldo will play some part?

    6. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Kaku

  17. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    He’s 36. It would take me to the following Wednesday to even move off the sofa.

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

      He's as fit as a 28 year old player would have been 10 years ago. The prehab and S&C are only part of it though, he has football OCD.

  18. dark91
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Benching both Cristiano and Pogba at the same time?!!
    Ole really likes to play with fire it seems

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

      Cavani presses better than Ronaldo. Pogba does it only when he feels like it, which isn't too often.

      1. dark91
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        True that. But if Cavani will be busy pressing and Bruno getting forward, there won't be any creative midfielders in the middle to replace Pogba.
        Anyway we will see how this game goes, after all it's Ole who is the manager not me 😀

  19. DycheDycheBaby
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Not gonna lie. Switched to Antonio captain last minute lol

  20. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Used a transfer on Shaw... Booh!

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Me too mate, sold for Rudiger tho so should be better off long term

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Yeah did it for Rudiger too... Hope it pays off!

  21. Babit1967
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Ronaldo benching makes no sense

  22. Iceball
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Ouch, at least I didnt sell Shaw for a hit but Ronaldo (C)

    1. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      we are offically done with

  23. have you seen cyan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Phew that was squeaky bum time there, switching Ron out for Rom in the dying seconds ❗

    1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Same mate although switched to Antonio!!

  24. Holmes
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Taking a -8 for Ronaldo last week has not gone well...

  25. F_Ivanovic
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Another one here who did Ron to Lukaku for a hit before the deadline. Was planning on doing the move anyway and the rumours made the decision for me.

  26. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Oh well, might be Livramento off the bench for Ronaldo.

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

    Of my 15 man squad next GW, only Tierney is at home.

    1. keefyefc
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      10 of my starting 11 at home only Gray away although CR7 also in team but thankfully not as captain

  28. Inazuma X1
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    VDB can't even get start despite this.. feel really sorry for him

  29. brianutd-why always we? 20
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    When you change your captain from to Antonio to CR7 at the last minute it fails

  30. Will Kane
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Not to overreact or anything but this might be the worst moment of my life

    1. Bubz
