    Switched armband from Ronaldo to Antonio on the deadline, confirmed, and then had a crisis of confidence but was locked out as the game updated. Yet my team is still showing Ronaldo(c)...

      Same, but i saved my changes before 11. Damn my internet or something

      You didn't confirm it

        7 months, 21 days ago

        I absolutely did. I clicked to go back into my team selection to check and was immediately timed out/greeted with the 'game is updating' page. This is horsesh*t.

          You can't blame the game, there has to be a deadline and you missed it.

            Well done FPLTowers for moving the deadline back half an hour.

            Oh, I'm sorry. I completely overlooked the fact that you were here with me while this happened...

            I can -- and will -- absolutely blame the app, pal.

              As Hazz says, if you leave it late, you're always relying on your internet/ fpl servers and you having the correct time.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years

      Lesson learned. Don't make changes that late.

  5. Crunchie

    Oh no. Jiminez is somehow my captain!

    1. g40steve

      Could be Genius

  6. Dacra
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Greenwood + Williams to Saka + Alonso (-4) is starting to feel ropey!

        My Auba captain not even on the list? 😀

        1. Forgetmeknot
          • 3 Years

          Same for me with Bruno

      3. Agent J

        Only if he does a 1 point cameo

    FPL site is back up

    Guys you have to realise Ronaldo is 36 years of age. He can't start every game.

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      It didn’t seem to bother him when he was 35

      1. 272MK
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        You followed Juventus? Or is there a website that tells you hoe many minutes he played each season?

    2. Sharkytect
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Hey! I AM 36 YEARS OF AGE!

  10. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Shaw haul is inevitable right? Alongside Alonso benching/Chelsea CS busting. This game!

  11. Cok3y5murf
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    So lucky these Ronaldo owners got the leak. Skill gap reduced

    1. Milkman Bruno
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Not many believed the rumours though, myself included. Didn’t effect my team choices and armband is still on him.

  12. bitm2007

    WC fail. No Ronaldo at least I didn't captain him.

  13. Gomolon
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Ronaldo on 109% EO in the Top10k - could be a week of changes at the top!

  14. kempc23

    Already thinking of an aggressive -8:

    Ronaldo to Lukaku
    Williams to Cancelo
    Sarr to Grealish

  15. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Brunooooo hat trick coming!!!

    1. sunzip14
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      I would love that parting gift from him!

  16. Hotdogs for Tea

    Hilarious and I own Ron 🙂

  17. Sun Jihai
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 21 days ago

    GW8 wildcarders will be able to pick Ronaldo up for 12.4m now

  18. Milkman Bruno
    • 1 Year
    7 months, 21 days ago

    Sold Shaw and Coufal to Alonso and Rudiger -4.

    Shaw haul and Alonso benching confirmed 😆

    1. Mozumbus
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Hope Rudigar is not jinxed

    2. Forza Papac
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Won't be the last line-up shock of the day. I'm looking at you, Marcos...

    3. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      OGS … we haven’t bought Ronaldo to put him on the bench 🙂

      1. Robin Cook
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        but he also said that he won't play all the games.

    4. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Ole is a moron.

      He's just given a fairly handy Everton team a nice psychological boost.

    5. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Ronaldo benched.

      Ooofff

    6. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Come on Gray, a few early goals to force Ronaldo off the bench

    7. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      it wasn't exactly a genius move to begin with, I knew that at the time, but getting Ronaldo INSTEAD of Salah could not have gone worse 😆 lol:

        • 3 Years

        *hugs*

          • 6 Years

          thanks brother, it hurts haha

      2. SADIO SANÉ
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        and I can't even do emojis properly, just end me lord 😀

      Ole has had it with his simulation.

    9. have you seen cyan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      triple premium teams in absolute tatters, double blank last week and now they are considering martial in for ronaldo 😮

    10. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Ronaldo is 36 and he's not even on penalties. 12.7 m. He's the biggest dud in FPL but people got blinkered by the nostalgia I guess.

    11. Big Hands Barry
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Can't see ronaldo staying on the bench with all those fans there to see him. Just hope for late damage

    12. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      God, why didn't I just do the Ron -> Lukaku transfer I'd planned for weeks...

      Ole is a df

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 21 days ago

        Ole is a different class of idiot

    13. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 21 days ago

      Might be behind the 8-ball here - if so, apologies

      But did anyone notice that during Ronaldo’s celebration on Wednesday night, as soon as whoever that was that first jumped on his back (McTominay or Dalot or someone), he immediately sat down on the turf?

      Wonder if he didn’t just feel something strain & is carrying a little niggle from it
