    Hey guys! I could use your help.
    Bench 1
    A)Cancelo(liv)
    B)Semedo(NEW)
    C) Gallagher(LEI)

    At the moment Cancelo is benched but it really doesnt feel right..

    1. Sᴄʜᴜ̈RRʟᴇ ⓝ
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

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

      I'm benching Gallagher over Ings which I'm not too pleased about either.

      Don't know if that's any help 🙂

    3. Tinmen

      Easily A mate
      Liverpool will score at Anfield

    4. Drip Doctor
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B. Newcastle will score

  2. Sᴄʜᴜ̈RRʟᴇ ⓝ

    Morning!

    Please would you help by picking a number?:

    1) Shaw to Rudiger (-4)
    2) play Torres vs liv
    3) play Williams vs bur
    4) play Livramento vs che
    5) play Shaw vs EVE (bench order as above)

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

      either 2 or 5, probably 5.

    2. Al-Chemy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah tough one. I'm leaning towards 2

    3. Sᴄʜᴜ̈RRʟᴇ ⓝ
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Thanks both

  3. TVPlugSockets

    Can’t afford lukaku, want to keep Ronaldo.

    Are there any Chelsea midfielders worth having, or not really?

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

      Mount yes

      1. TVPlugSockets
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Had Mount for 3 weeks and he didn’t get one return. Not sure I want that back! But I guess fixtures are nicer now.

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

      Nooe

    3. Al-Chemy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'd say not really, the only ones with decent minutes are Jorginho and Kovacic, but there's probably better options from other teams

    4. Fintroy
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No room for any Chelsea or Man City in my squad (Lukuku being the only expection) - they are just too costly v/s risk of their managers being obsessed with rotation.

  4. Al-Chemy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Due to injuries currently got Shaw and Gilmour playing. Wildcarding next week, but is it worth a hit to take one out?
    A) Shaw to Chelsea defender (Got Azpi)
    B) Gilmour to ESR/Odegard/Gallagher
    C) Don't take a hit

    Thanks!

    1. Sᴄʜᴜ̈RRʟᴇ ⓝ
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Similar predicament above.
      My gut says no hit

  5. Teahupo'o
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Bottomed. One remaining slot in WC. Best option?

    A) Sarr
    B) Benrahma
    C) Saka

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      B

    2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Sarr

    3. Oldie99
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Saka best, Sarr worst

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

      V

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

        Oh my. I meant C, outstanding option out of these for me.

        1. Teahupo'o
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Lol, thought I had said something wrong. Thanks.

    5. Teahupo'o
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Thanks all.

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

      Sarrr this week but then fixtures are horrific

  6. Oldie99
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    WC team

    Sanchez (Foster)
    Rudi Azpi Cancelo Semedo (Liv)
    Salah Benrahma Raph (ESR, DLuiz)
    Antonio Jimi Lukaku

    3.2 ITB for Semedo > Trent

    Gl all !

  7. Echoes
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Captain:

    A: Ronaldo
    B: Lukaku

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

      Lukaku

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks

    2. Eezer Goode, Eberechi Goode
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      The question we are all asking 🙂 - keep changing my mind. Lukaku the more obvious but Saints been strong at the back, thinking of going Ronaldo!

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah, but Rafa knows how to tighten up in big games. Really tight call, this one.

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

      I'm leaning A.

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah, really tight call between the two this week. GL.

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

      Chelsea are more likley to keep a clean sheet which means Lukaku even if scoring wont apply for bonus points. I go Ron

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

    Is it stupid of me to go Kane on wildcard?
    My mates are telling me I’m stupid.

    Am I stupid ? Am I?

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

      No, could easily be a great pick

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

      I'd wait on Spurs tbh. They aren't clicking yet together.

    3. Scotty84
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      The time just doesn't feel right atm as soon as he hauls though he's on everyone's radar.

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

      1. Echoes
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah, don't want to, but really tempted. Probably won't do it. Thanks.

          1. Wild Rover

      4-3-3 Wildcard team, thoughts??

      Ramsdale 4.0

      Rudiger Dias Cancelo Christensen Livra
      Salah Son Raph Luiz Brownhill
      Luka Antonio Jimi

      Punting on Son for a couple of gws will replace with a city mid like Grealish/Foden and get Taa in the future
