    I don't know lads. I don't know. I got Lukaku, Ronaldo and Antonio. This is killing me. Ronaldo can score literally against any team, but Man U are far from brilliant lately, Lukaku can end with a brace but SOU defense is pretty decent and can just park the bus. Antonio is a killer but Brentford are surprisingly tough. Currently on Lukaku cause it's the obvious choice...but I just don't know.

      Kaku seems like the obvious and popular choice.

      CR7 the FOMO and nostalgic pick.

      Antonio the punty but unsure pick.

      Choose your poison 🙂

    2. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Salah captain

    3. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad

      Toss a coin bud. I have been flipping all eve. I'm settled on Luka now....

    4. Big Mac 24

      Lukaku is a flat track bully. 13 pts
      Ronaldo hasn’t been great but can score v anyone at anytime, United playing average and Everton have been ok. 7 pts.
      Antonio 1-0 winner 8 pts

      1. Big Mac 24
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I’m going Lukaku/Jiminez.

  2. Muscout
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Is Ramsdale nailed?

    1. Thanos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yep

    2. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Seems it at the moment, hopefully a clean sheet for us today, heading to the Amex myself 🙂

      1. Tommy Tynans Left Shin Pad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Have a good time mate. Not done the Amex, looks like quite a neat stadium

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Cheers bud, appreciate it

    3. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No. Just started and looked good in the last 3 for bants.

    4. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Seems like it

  3. abaalan
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Son + ESR
    B) Grealish + Saka

    Arsenal mid will be 4th mid

    1. Bob Vrabkab
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

  4. VIVA_RONALDO
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    4th defender sub:
    a) Livra
    b) White

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I mean really? That's obvious.

  5. Hazardous1983
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    My brother played wildcars

    How is it

    Ramsdale (foster)
    Azpi rudiger cancelo (dias white)
    Gallacher raphina salah grealish (brownhill)
    Antonio jiminez lukaku

    Where shall he change this

    1. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Whats Wildcars? Sounds sick.

      1. Hazardous1983
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Wildcard *

    2. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Few risks. Ok on the whole.

  6. Differentiator
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Ronaldo over Lukaku for captain, no brainer

    1. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Ye but when i start look at antonio stats... Antonio?

      1. Differentiator
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Fat Tony is that you? Fat Tony

    2. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes, I mentioned this below, I am leaning towards CR7.

    3. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Salah (C)

    4. Thanos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      The no brainer is the other way round if you look at polls and betting odds. But CR7 ain't a bad pick tbh.

      But if you got Kaku as well, he is probably a better pick imo.

      1. Differentiator
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Southampton are no pushovers, Everton's defence is
        Everton's attack brutally useless against good teams
        Ronny on penaldo's now (probably)
        Ronny in-form, Lukaku playing like a donkey

    5. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      why?

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Before Villa, United had scored 5 & 4 at home.
        They also beat Everton 4-0 in the preseason if that means anything.

  7. JJO
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    A) Azpi + Benrahma
    B) Tierney/Semedo + Mount

  8. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Bench 1

    A Jota
    B Greenwood
    C Alonso

    1. Maddamotha
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

    2. Thanos
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Looks like Alonso won't start this weekend as per the comments on FFS. So start with Alonso and have Jota as first on bench

  9. smash

    2 months, 1 day ago

    Will Ralph play GW8? seen stuff like this posted on twitter a fair bit -

    "Brazil play Uruguay the Friday before GW8 so he’ll probably miss that GW"

    Cheers

    1. CapK
        2 months, 1 day ago

        If players are double vaxed they are exempt from quarantine - only news I have.

        No idea if raph is vaxed and no idea if he wouldve had enough rest, but I think he will feature at some point.... if hes vaxed

        1. smash
          • 12 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yeah I'm not sure either? - regardless if he doesn't have to quarantine, he won't play a game the following day will he? Even if he don't get on the pitch etc, assuming the game is in South America?

          Cheers

    2. Maddamotha
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Would you get Rudi for a -4, or play Livramento?

      1. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Rudi good longterm aswell

        1. Maddamotha
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Yeh. Could get him next week too without a hit though.

    3. Hryszko
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Last decision comes down to who gets the armband, Antonio or ronaldo? Antonio seems safer but Everton match could be a goal fest.

      1. Maeki2
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes this one is really hard. Both scored recently aswell

    4. Firmino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A) Ramsdale, Semedo, Saka, Jimenez
      B) Sanchez, Digne, Greenwood, Sarr -4

      Who scores more this week?

      1. roghippo
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        A

      2. Firmino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Or which one

    5. Gabbiadini
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Anyone else with both Ronaldo and Lukaku going Ronaldo captain?

      1. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        no - but if I had both I'd captain Lukaku

      2. Flaming Flamingo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Will likely have both when the deadline comes around, but will go with Lukaku captain I think

        1. Gabbiadini
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          I think it is definitely a lot tighter than what is being made out.

          1. Flaming Flamingo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 1 day ago

            I think most people would agree? Then again, some are taking Ronaldo out this week which is a bit crazy to me

      3. Thanos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 1 day ago

        If I had both, Kaku would be my pick.

    6. Q
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Any gooners on here that could settle the ESR VS SAKA debate. Who is getting forward more and specifically going for goal

      1. Gabbiadini
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Not an Arsenal fan but Saka is the second most forward player behind Auba.

        1. Q
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Thanks

      2. Qaiss
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I’m going Saka as an Arsenal fan myself. Feel ESR is more likely to be benched for the odd game, than Saka is. Both are good options though.

    7. roghippo
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Captain
      A Lukaku

    15. Sturridge Wars

      Which option?

      A) Azpilicueta , Duffy & Son
      B) Christensen , Semedo & Son

      1. MIGHTY JOE
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        B

    16. Tinmen
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Is Smith Rowe a better pick than Saka?
      I don’t watch enough of Arsenal tbh

      1. Hryszko
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I went smith Rowe over Saka if that helps.

        1. Lindelol
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          but why?

        2. MIGHTY JOE
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Same

      2. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        He's cheaper

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Saka plays in the national team, he's a far better player than ESR

      3. Thanos
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Saka. Just a better player overall.

    17. Hryszko
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      How does this move look for next week?

      CR7 & Marcal > Lukaku & Dias!

      1. MIGHTY JOE
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Excellent

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Can’t think of a better one.

    18. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Would you prefer Sarr or Saka over Raphina because Raphina is unlikely to play next GW?

      1. MIGHTY JOE
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Saka

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Nope

    19. StoneMountain
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Is Semedo more nailed than Marcal?

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Slightly

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Not slightly. Nouri is injured, otherwise he'd be playing over Marçal

          1. Thanos
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            2 months, 1 day ago

            Think he is fit for this weekend. Would be interesting to see how Wolves line up.

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes

      3. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yes

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

      Fully expect Luke Shaw to get 10+ points today after transferring him out to Rudigar for a hit. Absolute troll of a player

      1. BrockLanders
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        100% guaranteed

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah that would be absolutely typical of him.

    21. goldensock

      I don't see many teams with vardy.. why not?

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I can only have 3 strikers

      2. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Lukaku, Ronaldo, Antonio

      3. MIGHTY JOE

        Dont know really

      One remaining slot in WC. Best option?

      A) Sarr
      B) Benrahma
      C) Saka

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        C

      2. Eh, just one more thing ...
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        C for longer term.
