    Just a reminder that Brownwill is a £4.4m 90 minute midfielder for anyone with last minute WC budget issues

    1. Malcolm Tucker for England …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      but has a downside in that he's Brownhill 😉

        True, but a regular 2 points is all you hope for from a 4.5/4.4 mid anyway

        1. Malcolm Tucker for England …
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Agreed. He's a v.good enabler tbh

            D Liuz gets more

    If home form holds out, are we entering a phase where besides Man City most of the top performing teams are in a similiar home-away pattern.

    Meaning high scores this week needed.

    Then non template team structures catch up ground in gw8.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Non-template teams never catch up.

    Hmmmm, Grealish againts TAA-less Liverpool, or Pogba against use-less Everton?

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

      Grealish is blanking till kingdom come. I would skip Pogba as well.

      1. Mozumbus
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Grealish

      2. OptimusBlack
        • 8 Years

        Liverpool will be defensively better without Trent on the right

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Everton could easily draw or win this. Wednesday night Saturday midday can't be underestimated

              Hate the fact I’m playing Pickford and Armstrong but not sure if a -4 has a better upside this week for

                Is this a WC team? I don't like Greenwood, Kovacic, Tierney and Coady.

              One GW punt:

              A) Azpi

                • 6 Years
                2 months, 2 days ago

                Tarkowski probably got the biggest goal threat so him

              Best 1 week 8.7 mid punt for WC? Alongside Salah Raph and Saka.

              Will become Jota/City mid next week

                • 8 Years

                I've gone Mount. Although, in your case I'd just go Jota/City mid now and save the transfer

              Is there enough upside to go Gray to Raphinha for free?
              Mids are Salah Jota Sarr Gray
              My hesitation is that he's been a bit injured, rarely hauls and is some doubt for gw8 with the whole IB uncertainty.
              Don't have wildcard left and ideally wanted 2ft for gw8 - get in city defender and reassess chelsea defence
