My latest FPL Gameweek 8 Wildcard team: Foden, Son and Hwang in, Antonio out

A lot of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers have pushed the Wildcard button, including me, so I thought it would be a good time to talk about my current draft after tinkering for about five days.

Please take note that this is a draft and I don’t know where I will be with my team when Gameweek 8 eventually arrives.

GOALKEEPERS

The best FPL goalkeepers for a Gameweek 7 Wildcard

Currently, my goalkeepers are Aaron Ramsdale (£4.6m) and Ben Foster (£4.0m). Foster currently sits in my team as the second ‘keeper because he’s the most likely starting £4.0m goalkeeper out of the other options but obviously, we don’t know for sure what the situation will be with Claudio Ranieri now at the helm.

The goalkeeper spot is one I’m struggling with the most at the moment. Ramsdale does look like he has the number one spot and it is between him, David Raya (£4.6m) and Robert Sanchez (£4.6m) for me. Arsenal with their new-look defence have looked fairly steady and like I mentioned last week in my article, we are not relying on the short sample size of this season alone. In the second half of last season, Mikel Arteta’s team were the fifth-best defence for expected goals conceded (xGC) in 2020/21. Also, Arteta does come across to me as a defence-first coach whereas the Bees might go out and play a little. I also like the look of defenders from Brighton and Hove Albion and Brentford, who offer a slightly higher goal threat compared to the £4.5m options from Arsenal.

DEFENDERS

Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win 7

In my defence, Tino Livramento (£4.2m) picks himself because of Southampton going on a great run of fixtures. He has shown a lot in attack and the Saints have shown some newfound defensive resilience as well right now.

    Curious wildcard. Can't help but feel there are a lot of cheapies forced in to make room for expensive players. How many captain picks are really needed?

    1. McEwan
      • 12 Years
      11 days, 10 hours ago

      I think it's fair question. 3 bigs does upset the balance with only 1 captain needed. More options the better tho. I personally have Salah and then a number of hail marry options. Sure be weeks where it will be a problem but gotta ride the streaks

    2. Warblers Fear Satan

      Agreed! Especially neither Lukaku nor Son has really lit the word afire. I'm also suspect of Hwang, he has no history to speak of and a couple good games don't necessarily impress.

        Lateriser plays an aggressive game. Rather than wait for bandwagons to roll and belatedly hop on board, he tries to anticipate the next big things. Like, nobody's got KDB yet, but he could be hauling big in the next few GWs. He ought to call himself 'Earlyriser' really.

          I like Foden + 3.0m more 😀

        Whenever I see his name, my brain processes his name as:

        Lat-er-i-zer

        but he just a late riser...

        Great to see the new owners will be standing behind Bruce and backing him in the January window

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 6 Years
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          a Moyes v Bruce FA Cup final would be nice to see

            in all seriousness, its quite exciting to see what will happen to Newcastle. The league wont be the same, fantasy wont be the same

        2. Ginkapo FPL
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          11 days, 10 hours ago

          Nobody can win the league with newcastle this season. No reason to act prematurely

          1. have you seen cyan
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            ofc they wont, but they can make some ok signings in Jan. Martial, Coutinho?

            1. Andy_Social
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              11 days, 10 hours ago

              Graeme Jones will immediately improve their tactical balance and keep them safe with a couple of modest winter signings. The high-profile manager and galacticos can wait until the summer.

              Vaguely amused to see those names

              Newcastle have an absolutely abysmal defence and a very dodgy midfield - essentially a weaker version of the same defence they’ve had for 4 years. To guarantee that they stay up they need to sort that out

              It is always possible to go all Keegan and try and score 4 knowing you’ll concede 3.

          2. Wild Rover

            He'll be gone before their next game.

            Everton are surely a modern-day cautionary tale here.
            Just having a ton of money doesn't guarantee anything, players still need to come and FFP prevents 'Galactico' hiring - it took City MANY years of trial, error and building to get to title challengers and that was before the regulations were so strict.

            Everton have spent £500M+ in 4.5 years on transfers, but haven't really done as well yet as we did under the frugal Moyes years. Maybe Rafa will change that, but it is ironically the season we've spent virtually nothing and bought in Townsend, Gray and Rondon that we're looking our best for a while.

      4. Original - Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        11 days, 10 hours ago

        It appears to be a Choice of 3 at the back and Son or 4 at the back and Foden.

        1. ANGRY PERSON
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            How about 5 at the back. No son, no foden

          • Kabayan
            • 5 Years
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            You can go with 4 at the back and Son (rotating 4th def)

          • lilmessipran
            • 9 Years
            11 days, 10 hours ago

            Not really.. I have 4 at the back and Son

          • TheBiffas
              11 days, 9 hours ago

              i have 4 at the back with vardy

              1. gogs67
                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  Same as me

            • Bobby Digital
              • 4 Years
              11 days, 10 hours ago

              A. Werner +3.0m
              B. Lukaku

              1. CoKane & Zohores
                • 5 Years
                11 days, 10 hours ago

                I don't know who missed the target more. Werner or you with this comparison.

                1. Bobby Digital
                  • 4 Years
                  11 days, 10 hours ago

                  Haa!

                2. Bobby Digital
                  • 4 Years
                  11 days, 10 hours ago

                  I think it's a fair point _if_ Werner gets his scoring boots on.

                  1. Andy_Social
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    11 days, 10 hours ago

                    It's like asking A. TAA or B. White + 3.0m. I mean, where do you start?

                    1. Bobby Digital
                      • 4 Years
                      11 days, 10 hours ago

                      True. It's slippery slope for sure.

                      11 days, 9 hours ago

                      B easy

                      The mistake everyone is making is not asking that question

            • SKENG
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years
              11 days, 10 hours ago

              This is how I look for next GW with 1 FT, 0 ITB.

              Ramsdale
              Cancelo Azpi Rudiger
              Salah Son Raphinha Harrison
              Lukaku Antonio Jimenez

              Foster Livra Williams Brownhill

              How does Azpi & Harrison > 3.9 defender & Foden for -4 sound? Exact money, wouldn't be able to do it for free next week because price changes.
              In defense, it esentially means starting Livra instead of Azpi in the future. Livra has very nice fixtures and has imo higher attacking potential than Azpi. Is getting Foden for Harrison worth -4 in this case?

              1. TheBiffas
                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  just swap harrison for doucoure

                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  Nah. I’d do nothing and assume Livra comes in for Raph if he misses.

                  Don’t see why you’d take a hit for Foden when you have a week bench and Raph potentially not starting.

                G2G GW8?

                Mendy
                TAA, Rudiger, Cancelo
                Gray, Raphinha, Salah, Gallagher
                Antonio, Jesus, Lukaku (c)

                  G2G

                  Maybe consider capping Salah

                11 days, 9 hours ago

                Greenwood to Foden for a hit?

                  • 6 Years
                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  Greenwood after 2 week rest could do well against that Leicester defence so no

                  1. MountainBeach
                    • 9 Years
                    11 days, 8 hours ago

                    It's just that he's really not looked threatening since Ronaldo's come.

                2. RogDog_jimmy
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  11 days, 9 hours ago

                  Nope.

                  I get why people like Foden, but he’s a risk for rotation so taking a hit to get him is insane to me.

                Sanchez
                Semedo | White | Livramento
                Salah | KDB | Raphinha | Gray | Gallagher
                Ronaldo | Lukaku

                Can have this for -4. Overkill?

                  Woof. Do not like that defense - who are your 4th and 5th!!

                  My current preference is 2 big hitters only - so 4 seems wild to me.

                  1. Lucky Z
                    • 4 Years
                    11 days, 9 hours ago

                    Williams and 3.9

                      Yeah so so thin. KDB rests and then you’re into the garbage players.

                      If you want the 4x big guys then I guess this is it - but you know the risks.

                      I would do Mbuemo - probably over Gallagher.

                      And maybe do Semedo to a 4.5 (Henry) and then upgrade the 3.9 to Duffy. Got 4x viable starting defenders then to play fixtures with.

                    Save FT unless IB injury trouble you

                    Sarr could do well against understrength Liverpool

                  Is olise finally going to start now? Surely Viera can’t keep trying to force poor Ayew to play like a premier league player. Olise was class when he came on Vs Leicester wouldn’t mind a punt on him as an 8th attacker at 5.4m

                    I agree Ayew is awful, always makes the wrong pass. I’m probably biased as a Gallagher owner since I don’t think he likes passing to him for some reason

                    Olise was injured for a fair while. They spent a decent bit on him, he could be a little hit and miss for us last season at times but the talent is there no doubt

                  As it fell on deaf ears this morning, I will try once more for a response to my concerns relating to your association with Hub.
                  I already feel let down by you guys taking membership money without renewal.
                  I want dialogue. Everyone needs to know, even those who have no idea what is goig on.
                  1) Do you have any business interests with Hub?
                  2) Do you share information with them?
                  3) Do you market you customer base?
                  4) If any of the above are your members aware of the ramifications?

                  That is a start. Contact required immediately please!

                      You keep arriving with cryptic comments. What part of open transparency don't you understand.

                          What ultimatum? Are you a mod by any chance? English might not be your strong point.

                              Done that already. As you said, no response. Never mind, there are people who listen.

                                I've seen you emailed us an hour ago - I just replied.

                                For the benefit of anyone perusing and wondering similar - FFHub is a completely different site and company. No connection between them and us at all and I can safely say we don't sell members info to them or anyone else.

                                  Well that is a reasonable response.
                                  So you are saying no to all 3 of my questions?
                                  Do you have an account with them that could be kinked to our own privacy with FFS?

                                    Hi Jaf,
                                    We did make a statement to clarify this on Twitter post Hubgate and I also mentioned in a post elsewhere on the thread, but just in case you missed this, the answer is no we don't share any member information with third parties.

                                      Is that dependent on the opt in/out questions in your ‘Privacy’ questions?

                                      Why was there a statement on Twitter about hackgate, but absolutely nothing on here?

                                      Same as the Football Index fiasco….FFS had a relationship with that, I believe and then when it went sour dropped everything and posted something on Twitter…..cause everyone is on Twitter, apart from me…

                                  The definition of "sell" please? You can honestly say there is zero members information going to a third party from this site?

                                      Am I being obtuse? Let us change the word sell to make available. Did you listen to FPL Haul?

                                      I don't know, am I being obtuse?

                                      Looks like I (and others) have answered essentially the same question repeatedly, yet we keep being asked the same thing in a slightly different way. I'm really not clear what you're trying to get at or what you are looking for?

                                      I am sorry to disappoint, but there is no conspiracy theory here.

                                      We do not 'sell' or 'give' user's information to third parties. What is it that you think is happening?

                    Hi there Caveat King,

                    Whilst I must caveat that I'm not a massive fan of ultimatums and prefer friendly discourse, I will make an exception for a fellow toffee.

                    1+2) I can unequivocally state that we have absolutely no interest in Fantasy Football Hub and do not share information with them. Heck, we don't even talk or exchange Xmas cards. They are a distinct, competing entity.

                    We did invest a small amount to help support Fantasy Football Fest, as we think it can be a cool thing for the community, and Hub did also invest in that (as did Fix). However, we are very much in the background and this is an independent company that we do not control and do not decide who can/cannot be involved. No data is shared between FFS and Fest.

                    3) As previously outlined in a statement on Twitter, we do not share any user data with any third party for marketing purposes or otherwise.The only marketing activities we carry out with partners are those which you can clearly see in relevant stories on the site or social media, video channels, etc.

                    4) Not applicable really, as none of the above points are true

                    Hope that helps!
                    P.S. I also hope that the wheels don't fall off the Rafa revolution!

                      Does any FFS member information get shared with third parties?

                      Yes or no??

                        Um, did you read what i wrote? I refer you to point 3.

                          Um, yes, but why do you ask the questions in the ‘Privacy’ tab?

                          11 days, 7 hours ago

                          Just to clarify, not a single bit of member information has ever been shared by FFS to a third party? Think before you answer, as there might be evidence to suggest this is not entirely correct?

                              It’s a murky world, where corporations play with words to confuse the reality, and muddy the waters….keep asking, it’s not always as crystal clear and some would wish to portray

                            Is everyone bored by the lack of football this weekend? On balance I think I prefer the RMTs !!!

                            I'm genuinely not sure what you're talking about fella and although I do like a bit of banter and enjoy a spot of amateur Columbo as much as the next man, sadly I have to pop out with my family shortly so will have to leave you to it for now.

                            Naturally, if you do have an issue you want to raise or some specific allegation you'd like to make, please do contact us directly and share it so we can investigate. As always, we will look into it and respond.

                      Well that is an appropriate and succinct response. All I have been asking during today is a decent response and you have put my mind at rest. I must say however, my comments are not brought on for gossip mongering. There are sites out there that do point fingers at FFS and others, who make out there has been a level of collusion.
                      There is no ultimatum, try frustration. As far as Twitter is concerned I would never and will not use it. So anything discussed on Twitter is irrelevant from my perspective.
                      I am obviously miffed about money leaving my bank account without being advised initially. This is a separate subject altogether but the fact it could be done means my personal details you clearly have.
                      Fantasy Fest I have no idea what this is. I would like to know more about this association.
                      Anyway, once again, thank you for your response. I am not the only one out there who is apprehensive about this news. I believe what you say and I hope you can guarantee my personal security with the information you have.
                      Regards, A fellow Toffee.

                        Thanks for that.

                        I'd be genuinely interested to know more about the sites pointing fingers at collusion, if you were inside FFS towers you'd understand how laughable it is that we'd be co-operating with the 'noisy neighbours' on anything much, let alone dubious shenanigans. It'd be a bit like us popping over to Anfield to discuss the finer points of strategy and future transfer plans!

                      By the way, I must learn this word ultimatum. as far as I can see there was never any "or else" type of comment.

                      I’m clueless, ask me instead….but I might be about to conveniently pop out with my family just won’t necessarily answer your question 😉

                      Still here? I believe Jafooli and I are inquisitive and like to get a straight answer to a straight question. Be aware is so close to beware (smile)

                  Would you do Alonso and greenwood => Cancelo and son for a hit?

                    Probably do Greenwood to Son and hold Alonso, assume you have Livra to come in if he's benched? Then Alonso to Cancelo next week if you still fancy it.

                  afternoon all, hope you're having a good Saturday - anything worth a hit here or GTG? nothing in the bank, 0 FT and no wildcard remaining (played gw 4). potentially thinking jota or Sarr out for a hit ?

                    No hit required. Good backups there in case of raph no show

                      I don’t think you need a hit. Jota could do well v Watford even with limited minutes. Sarr might be worth holding for the Everton game to see if they get a new manager bounce

                    Do you guys Raphina will play?

                    1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                      • 9 Years
                      11 days, 8 hours ago

                      Based on what the Brazilian team manager said, I'd say pretty slim

                      1. MountainBeach
                        • 9 Years
                        11 days, 8 hours ago

                        I did Sarr to Saka for the next GW because of the risk. Everyone keeps saying Raph is a must have tho.

                        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                          • 9 Years
                          11 days, 8 hours ago

                          Huh? What Sarr got to do with Raph risk?

                          Raph is almost a must have, especially in gw10 (nor) but not in gw8 where he might not play due to Brazil's fixtures. Sarr otoh is a hold imo

                          1. MountainBeach
                            • 9 Years
                            11 days, 8 hours ago

                            Because my move this week was to get Sarr out and get one of Raph/Saka in. Sarr's got some really tough fixtures coming up

                            1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi
                              • 9 Years
                              11 days, 8 hours ago

                              Aah I see. Fwiw I'm keeping Sarr because Liv could be without The Brazilian called up duo, plus new manager bounce possibility and he actually got good record against Liv.

                              Decent move you made there btw, just try to fit in Raph in gw10

                    a) Jimmy + Foden
                    b) Toney + Son

                    Chances of Tsimikas playing in GW8? Liverpool got Atletico next, right...

                      If I'm on WC, I'd get something similar to this. So I like it, no Son but you can't get all the usual suspects obviously. How much is Zaha btw?

                      1. sirmorbach
                        • 5 Years
                        11 days, 7 hours ago

                        Yes! Son the obvious absent for me as well, but can't have them all, can't have them all.. Think I'll take it on the chin. Thank you for your feedback! Zaha is 6.9 atm.

                        1. NABIL - I still got Tsimi

                          Yeah only luck is against you with that kind of team lol, so good luck!

                          Zaha despite his FPL troll pedigree, is a good shout for a punt at that price. Better than the City mids atm imo.

                      good team, only difference on our wildcards are that I’m thinking about Duffy + Mbeumo + Son to your Dias + Zaha + Toney.
                      Are you confident to get your bench right most of the time?

                      no need to take -12, or even -4 before WC. White is an easy hold

                    I had a late night tinker on the wildcard last night

                    Brought son in for 10m on a draft with exact cash and saved it

                    Then he rose unexpectedly - meaning my draft would have been affordable....

                    So I guess fate means I'll be sticking with son in the wildcard!!

                    I know some will be thinking of ‘playing Raph incase be starts’ but aren’t you worried he will cameo ?

                    Say he gets 60 or 30 mins for Brazil I could see him not starting then getting 15-20 mins if they are a goal down

                    For this reason I’m kind of tempted to start livramento ahead of Him

                    What do you think?

                      I totally understand this. Much harder than it looks.

                      If I were you, I'd based my decision on which one would pissed me off more, benching Livra and he gets a cleanie, or benching Raph and he still get the points despite making a cameo.

                      I think there's an outside chance of a one-pointer, so I'm putting him on the bench.

                        Leaning that way too. Also bigger chance of cleanie fir So'ton if both Raphina and Bamford out, I'd assume

                      Yep, I’m putting him on bench too. And won’t be first sub either

                    Hold up, is 4.0m Norwich defender Omobanidele really playing #10 for Rep. of Ireland right now???

                      No. That's the 3.9m one.

                      UEFA making mischief. Robinson is behind Idah, Doherty wing back and Omobanidele in the back 3

                      Ah, the TV graphic mixed up Omo with Callum Robinson - who's just opened the scoring.
                      Scotland went behind at the same time - 5 minutes.

                      If John O'Shea can be a striker, then why not Omo??

                    Belgium coach Roberto Martinez: "Romelu Lukaku is suffering from muscle fatigue, same as Eden Hazard. They're not in best conditions to play. They're leaving the national team camp due to these problems - I don't know how long it will take

                        Perhaps I'm just cynical but feel odds are he'd be feeling much better if they had beaten France and were going to play a final instead of a pointless 3rd place game 😉

                      Am a lukaku owner and he will probably start against Brentford. Crazy things. Clubs have taken risk with the players but not on the internationals. A slight hint of injury or something then boom return to club take rest and get ready for the next club match.

                    Hi All

                    What are your thoughts on Laporte and Walker, will they be regulars or prone to the 'odd' rotation?

                      I am only considering Dias/Cancelo. Not worth taking risk with those 2 for their price imo.

                      The whole team except Dias and ederson is prone to rotation

                      Walker is fairly well nailed. But Laporte may be swapped out for stones soon enough
