  4. Dark Side Of The Loon!
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Chances Ronaldo comes on for 30 to 40 min?

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

      20 mins more likely.

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        A goal in those 20 min not unlikely.

  5. Beatle
    • 7 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Buzzing i didn't take Shaw out for a hit!

    1. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Did Shaw to Rudiger on a freebie... Don't know how to feel.

      1. Beatle
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        For free I would have done the same

  6. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Shipped out Greenwood + Shaw as part of a -4, this better not backfire!

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

      100 percent will

      1. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 3 days ago

        100% didn’t 🙂

    2. ZEZIMA
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Greenwood scores today

  7. Sergio vamos

  8. Rupert The Horse
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    He was always a Shaw thing.

  9. Tcheco
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    I have exact money for my planned transfers right now. Would you risk it?

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

      Shaw Vardy to Cancelo Lukaku

    2. Harry the Hack
      • 12 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Sure, what could go wrong with any of your players over a 2 week IB...

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

        Could’ve just said no instead of that bad attempt at sarcasm

        1. Harry the Hack
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          I could've. But I didn't. And I'd do it all again.

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

          You might not have liked his delivery but the advice was still sound. Can’t take things too personally on here!

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

      Obviously depends what moves - I have exact money for shaw > cancelo so chances are I make that today

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

        Cheers Steve. Leaning towards making the moves as well

    4. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      At the very least wait for the end of the day!

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

        Of course- in a hurry but not that much hurry

  10. ZEZIMA
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Lukaku (c) who is with me ?

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

      Me

    2. JHolmes
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      I am, but also have cr. And just noticed i transferred out greenwood instead of jota by mistake. I have a feeling this is gonna hurt.

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

    Oh ffs, back from a dog walk to see this nonsense, well at least shaw started - 1 pointer captaincy would be crap but I have a feeling he’ll come on and get something

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

      Yeah. I was eating and missed it too. Didn't expect anything reliable close to the deadline... And I'm not so sure I'd have trusted it if I did see it, but at least I'd have changed captains (not sold him)

  12. Alexis Nonsense
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    I get benching Ronaldo

    But playing Martial is just weird

  13. Forza Papac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    That's Chris Sutton laughing at Ronaldo cappers. As if I need another reason to dislike him.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      2 months, 4 days ago

      Ahaha. Kick em while they’re down I say

  14. hueycho
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    No Ronaldo? NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  15. Eastman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    2 months, 4 days ago

    Kept Shaw and captained Lukaku. Red arrow incoming

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Imagine the scenes when lukaku is benched for werner..

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

        That’s going a bit too far lol

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

    Presubs, my rank has jumped by 41k.

    No hits best decision this GW.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 4 days ago

      Sometimes to move forward you just have to stay still.

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

    Just looked at my team and looks like I can go one more week without pushing the WC button. A lot will depend on how the IB goes tho.

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

      Got City players vs Burnley?

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

        No, but bring in a city defender with a FT.

    2. Mozumbus
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Same here - WCing in GW8
        Here's my current team
        Sanchez Foster
        Azpi Rudiger Coufal Semedo Veltman
        Salah Bruno Greenwood Raphinha Allan
        Ings Antonio Toney
        1FT 0.3ITB
        What do you think, can it survive for a week or so?

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

          Depends if you're willing to go without Lukaku/Ronaldo

          1. Mozumbus
              2 months, 3 days ago

              Yes. I think going without Lukaku can be fatal. Without WC I'd need a hit which I don't fancy. Would need to sacrifice Brunn any case.
              WC warrants at least 5-6 changes, which I think there's enough opportunity in my team looking at run of fixtures post IB.

        2. Free Hat
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Was thinking the same. Too good a team to wc

          1. Echoes
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 3 days ago

            Exactly

      • altan8797
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        everyone is talking about CR7, no pogba owners here?

        1. Rochdale_Cowboy
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Who?

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

        Someone in my work mini league captained Ronaldo and VC'd Pogba.

        1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Ignore the personnel, that's just a rookie error.

        2. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Then they’re ignoring the no1 rule.

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

        Remember when Salah was shock benched vs. Palace only to come on and get a brace? Have faith CR7 cappers

        1. svasei - Up (?) the Rovers
          • 11 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          This

        2. SM001
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yes but that was Liverpool. This is United.

        3. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          2 months, 4 days ago

          That was Salah the God

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

        Kept Shaw and captained Raph over Ronaldo. Sometimes my genius….is almost frightening…

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

          Raph hip injury in 15th minute confirmed

          1. Rupert The Horse
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            So another goal then.

        2. Tcheco
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          😀

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

        Had it on Antonio all week until I came on here yesterday and changed it to Ronnie.
        ffs.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Should have come back on here this morning. I had it on Ronaldo all week and changed it once I realised he wouldn’t start.

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

            Good advice Rupert.

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

            You never stop do you lol

          3. Gomolon
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            The early horse gets the carrot!

      • boroie
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Feelings on this WC draft?

        Ramsdale (McCarthy)
        Rudiger Semedo White (Livramento Williams)
        Salah Mount Raphinha ESR (Luiz)
        Lukaku Kane Antonio

        Kane would be a 1 week punt against Newcastle and then I’d switch him out for Ronaldo.

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

          Business as usual is resumed!

      • We Go Again
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        So no pens, not guaranteed to start every match, fixture turn. Time to get rid and spread the cash to the defence

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

        So the real winners are gw7 wildcarders 😎

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

          Not those that kept Ronaldo stupidly 😎

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

          I am still a loser - WCed and have both kaku(VC) and Ronaldo(C) - so frustrating

      • Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Ronaldo absence causing meltdown. Lots of mentions of Pogba.

        Sancho... not a peep lol. BVB gonna get him back on loan in January at this rate.

      • Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Was watching Andy at Let’s Talk FPL live you tube deadline stream & he had a message to say Ronaldo would not start but wasn’t sure it was reliable. He hit his wildcard 1 minute before deadline, took out Ronaldo & captained Lukaku

        1. Pumpy
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Awful fpl player . Why people take advice from him is beyond me

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

            Harsh, I think his show is very good

            1. Pumpy
              • 12 Years
              2 months, 3 days ago

              It's utter dross. So many better people to follow if you have to follow any.

        2. Dammit_182
            2 months, 3 days ago

            He likes a bit of drama!

        3. tibollom
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          did greenwood + ayling to saka + rudiger, greenwood for a hat trick then! What are the chances of ronaldo not playing at all? have antonio as VC

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

            Hell get 20-30 probably

        4. BigRedDog
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Ronaldo is going to come on and score a winner for an 8 pointer

        5. Babit1967
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Have Ron (C) and no Lukaku or Antonio, big red arrow incoming I’d say
