    4. 272MK
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Lol maybe Tuchel and Ole are playing FPL too.

    5. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Lukaku needs to get the finger out though.

  2. Lindelol
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    The only way he can come at half time is if United are 2-0 down right??

  3. Zilla
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    When did Ronaldo not starting leaked, was sleeping lol.

    1. JBG
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Never in time for us to make a change.

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

        Plenty of time.

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

      Can't trust leaks anyway so screwed either way

    3. Gomolon

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

      About 10:45

    6. Gandalf
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sky bet seemed to know yesterday based on the huge boost they put on him getting a shot on target. May keep an eye on that in the future

      1. Gomolon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        That would be interesting, like an FPL Insider automated account that watched to see any huge spikes/drops in odds

  4. Egg noodle
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Lol... Stop announcing your vice captains like Ronaldo's going to stay on the bench for 90 minutes...

    1. SADIO SANÉ
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      yeah this, brace off the bench time

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      (A)ntono SalahVC

  5. RUUD!
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    F***** joke this game.

    0-0 at half time, bring Ronnie on for a brace please

  6. Bubz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Is anyone else as annoyed about Luke troll Shaw starting as I am?

    1. RUUD!
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No because he’s in my starting 11. But so is CR7 (C)

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I kept him after there was shots of him in team training where he looked fine.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Had to sell the night prior to that to afford Ridigar unfortunately

    4. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      He will turbo-smash today

      Haulage of utterly biblical proportions

      We’re talking cleansheet & 2 assists, maybe a goal as well

      This is the way

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Absolutely

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

        Or he's off at halftime cos he's got the trots.

        1. Gomolon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

    6. Rupert The Horse

      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No way. Was desperate for him to start. I took a hit to get 10 playing. 11 with him.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I sold him for a hit 🙂

        1. DannyDrinkVodka

          15 pointer incoming

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

      Kind of. It was his injury that lead me to wildcard. But that wildcard included Ronaldo > lukaku. Will see at the end of today whether I am annoyed

    8. Optimus.
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Nope,had 2 FTs and kept/started him. 1 point incoming

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I guess it comes down to who the fpl gods hate more, you or I

        1. Optimus.
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          😀

          I'm not going to lie, I hope Shaw keeps a CS and Rudiger is benched just to see your tears 😉

          1. Bubz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years

    9. Agent J

      Of the 4 flagged players in my team, I choose to remove Shaw.

      1. Bubz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I feel your pain. Lets hope for a 1 pointer

    Ron > rom transfer has started well…

    Don’t get too cocky. I remember laughing at salah getting benched last season or the year before. Came off the bench with 25mins left and scored twice and assisted

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

      I remember this to, it was awful but a great lesson, top players have a knack of finding a way

  8. GreennRed
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Jesus. There'll be the ex-Premier League players on here now for gametime whinging about Ole and Ronaldo comes on after 70 mins and score two to win the game.

  9. Milkman Bruno
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Tactical genius from Ole. Martial fighting for a new contract and playing for his United career. Cavani is still Cavani. Don’t be surprised if he scores a few.

      Hahaha Ole and tactical genius in the same sentence.

      1. Dammit_182
          2 months, 2 days ago

          First time for everything

      2. jackruet
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 2 days ago

        When i first said yesterday here at FFS Ronaldo might be benched according to twitter, some of them just slammed me and said this is nonsense

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I joked about it and got '100% starting' and such, even though I said it COULD happen

          1. SADIO SANÉ
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            actually might have been Lukaku loool cba to check - I'm outta here

        2. Jdpz
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          they are Ronaldo fanboys...

        3. Egg noodle
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Lol in one of your posts you said that there's no way Ole would be benched. If Ole benches Ronaldo then he's psycho mad...

          1. jackruet
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I was convincing myself. It was my thought. What i posted was a source from Twitter

        4. Harry the Hack

          You can say many things, you r just saying this in hindsight

      3. sunzip14
        • 4 Years

        How many of you have hit the WC button?

        1. Strchld
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Just did. Feels good.

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

            Didn’t wanna wait and see how today’s games pan out before hitting the button?

            1. Strchld
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 2 days ago

              No, dont have any Chelsea players anyway, want to get rid Jota, Greenwood, Ayling etc.

        2. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Not because of this, but I am playing it today as planned. So many players didn't rise last night but should have - cancelo, rudiger, d. luiz, nice little bonus

          1. Strchld
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            And probably I want all of them to my WC team.

      4. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Ronaldo leaving my team. Need to cash in.

      5. 272MK
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Ole playing FPL confirmed. But I don't suppose age is the factor with Cristiano benching? ManCity had lots of players rested too last season

      6. Baines on Toast...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Buying Ronaldo was a season defining mistake for me. But United will be better today with Cavani.

        1. Deeney-is-a-god
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          when did you buy him?

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            WHY did you buy him? What's changed?

      7. Zim0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        People are really underestimating Cavani here.

        1. The Invincibles
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          It's Cavani!

        2. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Pressing all game long. Goal, assist, 3 baps.

      8. The Invincibles
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Could be a massive swing this week if Ronaldo comes on for a 1 point cameo. Can imagine he was the favourite captain choice among non-wildcarders.

        1. Gomolon
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, highest captained, 41.7%, in the top 10k, and 109% EO in top 10k (source: @fpl_alerts)

        Worst news of the Week: Ronald(C) benched
        Possible Good News : Ronaldo Scoring a Brace
        Possible Great News: United loses 3-0

        The guy is 36 years old and you think he's a machine ... Live on in this bubble

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He is a machine. For a 36 year old. But his gametime needs to be managed. No point in having to rest him if he gets injured.

      11. G B
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Benching the GOAT after he rescued a result for United once again?!

        Lingard deserves better.

        1. Nanoelektronicar
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          That's how fpl is played in this day and age. Yt, tw and just copy paste. It used to be 50 points in a round is just fine, now that straight red, no matter what.

          I must admit that online content influences my decision making, but I would never copy someone's team.

        2. Agent J
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Everyone can be inspired by his pedigree and learn to play.
          For them it is not copying

      17. sunzip14
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Ole has Bruno captain. Ronaldo would ask for the next penalty, so he benched him. Bruno to dive and take another penalty before HT ;P

      18. Rochdale_Cowboy

        Chilwell starts apparently

          Any source … I changed Alonso to Azpi this morning so if true that’s a relief …

      19. NateDog
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Lol I said earlier if I had Bruno I would have been tempted to captain him with his performances against Everton last season (as well as generally doing well in 12.30 games bar last week), looks like he might do it again

        1. sunzip14
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I hope he does before he goes out on WC. Captained Auba though!

          1. NateDog
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 2 days ago

            That's brave but could pay off, Arsenal v Brighton is usually a tasty game, went for a risky one myself with Sarr, good luck!
