FPL Gameweek 8 round-up: Saturday review, injury news and the things we learned

You’d have been lucky to avoid at least one of your players suffering a benching in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) on Saturday, with usual suspects Pep Guardiola and Thomas Tuchel joined by plenty of others in throwing teamsheet curveballs aplenty.

Elsewhere on a busy day of FPL, Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) continued his red-hot form, Chelsea and Manchester City kept yet another clean sheet, and bargain-bin options Shane Duffy (£4.4m) and Tino Livramento (£4.2m) reminded us of their worth with solid defensive returns.

Our usual, more detailed Scout Notes will follow for all of the day’s games but in the meantime, our resurrected Scoreboard series rounds up the key goings-on from the day’s Gameweek 8 fixtures.

GOALS, ASSISTS, PROJECTED BONUS

INJURIES AND BANS

It was a fairly quiet day on the injury front, with few fresh concerns reported so far.

Marcelo Bielsa did however confirm after full-time that Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) had missed out through a combination of hip and calf issues, while Junior Firpo (£4.8m) was absent with muscle problems.

Anthony Martial (£7.6m) sat out Manchester United’s defeat to Leicester City with a minor injury picked up while on duty with France but teammate Harry Maguire (£5.4m) made a swift return to playing action – and probably wished he hadn’t.

THE THINGS WE LEARNED

PERMA-CAPTAIN SALAH?

Mohamed Salah (£12.7m) is 27 points clear of any other FPL player after his fifth double-digit haul of the season; he managed just six of those 10+ returns in the whole of 2020/21.

The Egyptian is a remarkable 35 points ahead of where he was at this stage in his record-breaking 2017/18 campaign and is now averaging over 10 points per match this season.

All of Liverpool’s front three were among the points in the 5-0 win over Watford but unfortunately for Diogo Jota‘s (£7.6m) owners, he wasn’t part of that attacking trio. His omission was all the more galling given that Roberto Firmino (£8.8m) scored a hat-trick of goals from point-blank range, central areas where Jota has been getting – and spurning – chances in recent weeks.

EVEN DIAS ISN’T ROTATION-PROOF

Only one ever-present starter remains among Pep Guardiola’s squad following Ederson‘s (£6.0m) anticipated no-show and rather less expected benchings for Jack Grealish (£7.9m) and Ruben Dias (£6.2m) on Saturday.

The rest for Dias was a particular bolt out of the blue as he was the mainstay of the City defence last season: the centre-half was a substitute in only one league match from his Gameweek 4 debut to Gameweek 30 (the point at which Guardiola started focusing on the Champions League and FA Cup, with the domestic title sewn up), and even that was because he had just recovered from illness.

Joao Cancelo (£6.2m) is the last man standing when it comes to bench evasion, having started all eight of the Citizens’ league fixtures in 2021/22.

He has racked up more clean sheets (six) than any other Fantasy asset and now sits top of the FPL defenders’ table on a half-century of points. Not only that but despite his premium price tag, he sits fourth for ‘value’ – a metric typically dominated by budget assets – when points are divided by cost.

RONALDO/LUKAKU ARE TESTING OUR PATIENCE

Three straight blanks for Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.6m), four consecutive two-pointers for Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m)… how different the Fantasy landscape looks now following the clamour to crowbar both strikers into our teams a month or so ago.

Lukaku huffed and puffed to no avail at Brentford and now has had just six shots in the last four Gameweeks.

Ronaldo’s opportunities have dried up a tad, too, and he hasn’t had a single Opta-defined ‘big chance’ in his last three outings.

Jamie Vardy (£10.5m) has outscored both of them combined now this season, and his strike against United was his fifth in four matches. No forward can better the Leicester veteran for shots or penalty box touches over the last four Gameweeks.

WHY RAPHINHA MISSED OUT

It was always going to be a tough ask for Raphinha (£6.6m) to start after racking up 71 minutes of pitch-time for Brazil on Friday morning and, in the end, the Leeds winger didn’t even make Marcelo Bielsa’s matchday squad, let alone the starting XI.

The Leeds boss said of his star midfielder after full-time:

“Raphinha, we had decided that he was going to fly after his game, without knowing how many minutes he was going to play on the Friday. In the end, he played 70 minutes, flew 15 hours and today at midday he wasn’t in conditions to take on board even a part of the game. Given that he wasn’t in conditions to respond, we didn’t risk because it’s possible in circumstances like this, injuries can occur.”

MBEUMO IS OWED SOME LUCK

Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) blanked in the late kick-off against Chelsea and despite two goals in the last four Gameweeks for the ‘out of position’ midfielder, his luck appears to be right out in 2021/22.

No Premier League player other than the Brentford attacker has hit the woodwork more than once this season – but Mbeumo has been thwarted by the frame of the goal on six occasions, twice on Saturday.

A total of 16 of his 19 shots have been technically off-target but it’s hard to chastise his finishing ability too much when we’re talking millimetres on those half-dozen occasions.

STAT WATCH – GAMEWEEK 7

Raul Jimenez (£7.6m) and Adam Armstrong (£6.0m) were among the high-profile names who were on bench-warming duties on Saturday.

While the jet-lagged Mexican’s cause was helped by a limp Wolves attacking display from open play (Bruno Lage’s side scoring three times from set pieces late on), Armstrong’s owners would have been concerned to see Armando Broja (£5.0m) turn in a match-winning display in his stead.

Broja is top for shots in the box in Gameweek 8 so far, while no forward could better his total of 10 penalty area touches.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s rotation policy continues to bemuse but given his price and fine display, the Albania international is an intriguing prospect.

He’s long ceased to be an option for many of us but it’s worth highlighting Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.9m) recent creativity, with his Gameweek-high total of seven chances created taking him to a total of 22 over the last four Gameweeks – that’s 10 more than any other player has managed.

    Still can’t understand people holding a non playing 4.5 forward … when you can get a nailed 5.5 one

    1. Sun Jihai

      Depends on your budget and strategy
      Think it's less so this season but last season there was a lot more value in the mids and defenders and so people were happy having a fodder 3rd bench player who never plays to invest the extra 1m+ you'd spend on a playing forward elsewhere
      This season it's less relevant as more of a bench needed due to seemingly more rotation and the fact that there's a lot of budget players delivering so budget isn't as stretched this year

      1. Hotdogs for Tea

        3 months, 12 days ago

        but it’s not an extra million though, it’s just a straight choice between a non playing 4.5 forwards or a playing 4.5 (or cheaper) defender or mid sitting on your bench.

        There is a pretty good choice of forwards that are value for money and match mids for their price … I understand the reasons but the logic simply doesn’t stack up and this week with all the issues meant people actually need 3rd off the bench.

        I have DLiiz, Livra & White on my bench and they were not more expensive than Davis or Scarlett etc - the former group I would be happy to start any week, the latter I can not start any week.

        This guy should know better 😉

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          it is an extra million if that 4.5 fwd is 3rd on the subs bench and never plays, i have 2 x good subs and more money to spend on team as a result, when it comes to it i see more points generally in a 5.5m mid or def as opposed to a 5.5m fwd, that's my logic at least

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            the idea is that you do start your third forward though …

            If there was a 4.5 forward that started then I would agree and be happy to bench him with the comfort that I can use him in emergencies or rotate with another duffer.

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              i don't see too much difference between a brownhill type 2 point type of guy and a 4.5 fwd zero point type of guy 3rd on my bench, i wouldn't want to play a 5.5 fwd every week (unless someone truly genuine who could match a smiliar priced def/mid emerges, maybe a Hwang or whoever) and my 3rd sub whoever they are is almost never going to play

              1. Hotdogs for Tea
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                forget about the 5.5 if you want and concentrate more on a higher priced but good value starter up top and a playing 4.5 mid or defender on your bench … compared to a similar value starter in midfield and a non starting 4.5 forward.

                Ings, Watkins, Richa, DCL, Wilson, Toney, Dennis, Hwang … loads of them ti chose from

                Why play the game with just 12 outfield players for the same budget as 13 … when we are given 13 to play with ?

                Doesn’t seem logical if we have decent 3rd forwards to start, which we do have

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I prefer 3 playing forwards and a cheap mid on the bench.

      1. Jafooli
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Same, always have, which is weird because for a few seasons now, mids have in general provided better overall value than fwds, who apart from a few exceptions have tended to under achieve…

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Very difficult getting out of the 4.5m fodder striker especially if do not have enough ITB.

          Rather have a 4.5m to 5m mid for your bench which is going to score points just about every week compared to 4.5 fodder striker which you are stuck with.

          1. Jafooli
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah, that’s a good point and probably why I stick with the mid fodder

    3. F4L
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      5.5? Broja is just 5mil 😉

      1. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        even better

    4. SAY MY NAME
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      why waste a million though? all those 5.5 ish forwards are rubbish, similar priced defenders getting double the points, and almost to the same extent with cheap mids, and that's why some people don't want to waste their money in that slot when there's better value elsewhere

      1. Andy_Social
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        4m defenders are supposed to be rubbish, yet Duffy and Livramento have served me very well.

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          i had duffy earlier, and have livramento now, who are great, but also have the funds for a fourth premium defender, who i think will score me more points than a 5.5m fwd

          1. Hotdogs for Tea
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            and then when you are a few players down like this week you take a hit to bring in a starter or go with 10 players because you can not rely on your non starting 4.5 forward

            The argument for ‘well we never use our third sub’ fails to recognise that people take a hit because they can’t use the third sub anyway because he is a non starter 😉

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              jota non-starter for me this week, 2 x good subs to cover, i feel over a run of games playing with a 5.5 ish def/mid will net me more points than playing with a 5.5 fwd and having the luxury of having a playing 3rd sub who might have to play once every 10 weeks (and in that case given any early news of injuries i would likely use an FT to deal with the situation)

            2. SAY MY NAME
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              taking a hit or playing with 10 in an emergency (although i could well have an FT spare) may still be effective if the strategy of a different structure with a 4.5 non-playing fwd nets more points over a run of games, which i believe it will, unless i see a genuine option 5.5 fwd who i think could outscore the equivalent def/mid

      2. Hotdogs for Tea
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        you are not wasting a million lol, the idea is that you start your 3rd forward each week not bench him … and in any case you can step up to 6.5 or 7.5 etc if you don’t like Hwang or Dennis or whomever

        We have winter fixture congestion, Covid, IBs with late games, injuries, rotation if you want to delve in to City/Chelsea etc … the game is a bit different these days and we get more flags than a national day celebration so having options that start is a lot more important imho

        1. SAY MY NAME
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          but i think a 5.5 mid or defender scores more points than a 5.5m fwd, so that's what i go for, if i go for 3 x fwds i would want to go up to at least Toney level

          1. Andy_Social
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            That's the safe, mediocre way of playing the game. The skilful way is to spot the underpriced player who bucks the trend.

            1. SAY MY NAME
              • 4 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              but mostly it's a trap, unless you find the original vardy at 4.5 etc, but they're so rare, if i see one great, till then it's mediocre all the way 🙂

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

                Its blind luck which guves you a week or two before bandwagon has thenlm

        2. SAY MY NAME
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          i have 2 x good bench options, if i need to go to 3rd bench option it's likely only a 2 pointer from a 5.5 fwd, and i think that million is better spent in my playing team and imo should provide more points - if there are injuries/covid cases i can transfer one of those players - if i really wanted 3 up front then i'd want better than the 5.5 options in order to make it worth it

    5. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      quite interesting to check, my 10th & 11th players really, assuming I have to have 3 at the back and two forwards are always nailed

      my third budget forward (a mixture of Wilson, Dennis, Toney & Hwang) position has given me 23 points in 7 games.

      My fourth mid or defender (Gundo, Ben, Coufal, Jota etc) has given me 17 points

  2. davies
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Which option?

    A) Ronaldo Sissoko

    B) Iheanacho Son (-4)

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Has to be B

      1. davies
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        What about

        C) Vardy 6.5 mid

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Depends on the rest of your team.

    2. Jafooli
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      B if they will be regular starters, as Sissoko is likely a 2pt player and Ronnie looks done.

      1. davies
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Sissoko is benched in A for White/Liv

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Probably still B, I’m about to ditch Ronnie, he’s got a couple more games at most.

          Only reason he might survive is, am not sure if it is him or Lukaku goes first. Lukaku has the Norwich game to prove himself and then I decide

    3. F4L
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      B, 7mil-ish forward is a good price point this season. Although I'm not 100% convinced on Son just yet, need to see Nuno let Spurs attack freely consistently.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        One premium forward and two 8m gives you the most flexibility up front as you have more variety to switch up or down from 8m.

        As it is, the midfielders in the 7 to 8m range not living up tbf. Far more value in the mid priced forwards compared to the mid priced midfielders.

  3. Jafooli
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Which essential (@5.5m), must have (super attacking and plays for ‘free scoring’ team) player (who had a magnificent Euros) who started FPL with 50%+ ownership (I think) is this:

    1 - 4 - 6 - 5 - 2 - 0 - 2 - 0

    And despite ownership down to 25% has only dropped 0.1 to 5.4, with one attacking return (an assist in a 4-1 win)?

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Shaw

    2. SAY MY NAME
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      shaw for sure

    3. F4L
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      he's in direct competition with Digne for most shambolic 5.5 defender this season so far

      1. BERGKOP
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Not just this season. He's a shocking FPL pick.

    4. PartyTime
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Most overrated fpl asset.

        I fell into the trap in gw 1. Hurts because I had to drop Alonso for him due to that ownership.

        Glad I sold in gw 2 for Dias

    5. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Salah captain anyone for next gw? Lukaku is still a donkey and Norwich seems tighten up their backline better recently. While utd is joke right now..salah is in red hot form

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Salah all the way. Nobody can touch this bloke with the form he is in.

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          And against the Man Utd defence.

          The only issue is that Liverpool is a game that they can rise to the challenge, Varane will be back and Lukaku is a flat track bully and could score 5.

          I’ll probably go Lukaku and hope Salah is kept quiet

      2. SAY MY NAME
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        definitely tempted, especially as Lukaku seems to have lost his shooting boots

      3. F4L
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I don't own Lukaku so it's an easy choice for me.

        I guess one way of looking at it is if you were to captain Salah and Lukaku outscores him would you're feeling of regret be greater or smaller than the opposite scenario (captain Lukaku and Salah outscores).

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          If anyone had suggested a month ago captaining a player against Man United away when you have Lukaku home to Norwich, they'd have been abused from pillar to post, and yet here we are - it's a serious dilemma.

          1. F4L
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            yeah 100%, I'd go as far to say this is the best Salah has ever looked in the PL. I know people were joking a bit about him breaking 300 again, but he might've just done it (if it wasn't for AFCON).

            On another note I do think Norwich look more defensively assured playing a 5 back with 3 midfield, they might not necessarily be the whipping boys that it looked like they were at the start of the season.

            1. pingissimus
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Agreed on Norwich - think there has been definite progress there since Kabak came in and with the new formation. Can't see anything like enough goals but it wouldn't surprise me if they didn't end up with something similar to the Fulham defensive record last season as opposed to the SU one.

          2. Jars458
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Fair enough, but no dilemma for me. I have captained Salah every week. Do that and think long term and you can't go wrong. He's only blanked once and is on absolute fire at the moment. Lock him in.

      4. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Salah 100% for me.

      5. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Has to be Lukaku.

      6. Murder on Zidane's Flo…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Salah for me, definitely.

        Man U is an attractive fixture for an attacker and Salah, by concensus, is the best going at this time in the EPL.

    6. La Roja

        1. La Roja
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            • 1 Year
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Hmmm.
            Let’s see Antonio this week - but it might be a chance to swerve. Vardy, Watkins, Iheanacho even. Some fun options are around.

              Firmino or Jesus might even be viable.

                Hwang on, you’re missing one

        3 months, 12 days ago

        I'm not sure it's the right time to be buying Antonio, with West Ham's fixtures he probably won't do too much damage; tomorrow will be a good showcasing though, Everton away is tough.

        Leicester looked brilliant today shifting into wingbacks with Nacho supporting Vardy, so getting Vardy in for CR7 should probably be the play (and hope he keeps sitting out the EL).

        Are you keen on getting TAA in or not? Those spare funds could be used to upgrade Alonso/Rudiger to him

      Is Alonso worth keeping in this team?

      a. Alonso -> Chilwell
      b, Amartey -> Livramento

      Sánchez
      Cancelo, Alonso, TAA
      Raphinha, Salah, Fernandes, Sarr
      Ings, Antonio, Toney

      Steele, Duffy, Gilmour, Amartey
      2 free transfers, 0.6 million in the bank

      1. F4L
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        if you do B, then for the time being I'd say yes, whomever starts in the LWB role for Chelsea has such a high ceiling. But give it until the next international break and if Alonso has only started 1 of the next 3 in the PL it's time to ditch.

          Thanks! I have had him since the start and would like to keep him. Livramento should be ok backups for him I hopw.

      A) Ronaldo + Benrahma ➡ KDB + Toney
      B) Ronaldo ➡ Lukaku

      A or B ?

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Fixtures are pretty much same for Toney and Luka, so I wouldn't mind picking 1.

        1. CR7 is Home
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Thanks mate
          Idea is to double up with Salah Mane after the United game, but going without Lukaku vs Norwich feels not so good 🙂

    10. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Looking at Leeds vs Wolves GW9, I would rather have Hwang or Jimenez over Raphina.

      Bamford does not look close to a return soon which is one nail in the coffin already and Leeds are in utter freefall.

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

        Wolves were garbage for 80 minutes before Cash came off. Hwang didn’t get a sniff all day, Jimi obvs not.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Leeds defence is utter garbage. Them and Watford are the teams to target.

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

            Wolves attack is worse IMHO

      2. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Easy to have both

        Though Wolves doesn't inspire much. Podence could be handy, was the game changer.

      3. Jafalad
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Freefall???

        Leeds are never the same without Phillips. Raphinha, KP and Firpo back will improve things.

    11. Echoes
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Gonna put the armband on Lukaku in GW9. If he can't return even against Norwich, I'll bin him even for a hit if need be.

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Nice, I will take a hit to get him and a hit to get rid. Exciting stuff!

        1. pingissimus
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Really?

          I'm remembering his United days. Also not at all convinced Norwich is a good enough game for that move. They're showing a fair bit of defensive resilience recently, Finding it tricky to compare this to a City or Liverpool Norwich match up.

          1. Holmes
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah, they have shown improvement in last couple of games and Chelsea are looking clueless in attack. But I'm a firm believer of Luka being a flat track bully and I love to own him, will give 3-4 games and then reassess.

            I was considering Werner-Luka double for next 3 games but I'm not sure about that anymore, Werner atleast looks better than Luka at the moment.

            1. pingissimus
              • 3 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Really torn here - was all set on it but really dubious now. Chelsea goals are all coming from that bloody defence.

              Thinking of the hit to Son instead if he's fit to give me the Son Vardy combo. Irritatingly I'm 0.1 off Firmino as the makeweight to get the awkwardly priced trifecta 😉

              Bobby F is actually intriguing. His minutes per goal since coming back late last season is quite okay and that's the attack to be on surely.

              1. Holmes
                • 8 Years
                3 months, 12 days ago

                I think Tuchel has to start Mount in PL now, should make things better. Looking forward to Chelsea midweek game to get some hints of who is going to start vs Norwich. A Chilwell benching would make things interesting... 😀

                Have you got Toney? Pretty much same fixtures as Chelsea and probably a better pick than Werner. Wouldn't trust Firmino for FPL yet. Fixtures are iffy as well but they are Liverpool!

                I'm also looking at Zaha 😛

                1. pingissimus
                  • 3 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Still have Edouard 🙂

                  Giving him the next couple anyway and any return and he stays. Strip out City match in 10 (where he's benched) and Palace are close to top of ticker. Not sure they'll score too too many goals but think he's where they'll come from. Not sure Toney is where Brentford will score. Mbeumo surely can't hit the post again. Watkins and Jim possibilities if I get Son.

                  1. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    I'm not sure about Son but that's probably due to Spurs being meh.

                    I think Toney should be further forward in easy games, less defensive duties. You can watch Brighton and Wolves highlights.

                    1. pingissimus
                      • 3 Years
                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Ah - haven't been paying too much attention to different set ups. Will check it out. Brentford I know do mix it up a bit. Still think Mbeumo probably my preference - seems a natural Benrahma replacement.

                      1. Holmes
                        • 8 Years
                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        True. Mbeumo is my 1st preference as well. Don't mind double up for LEI, bur, NOR, new, EVE before WCing.

                        1. pingissimus
                          • 3 Years
                          3 months, 12 days ago

                          Have to say apart from your Ron booboo you're playing a blinder this year and look beautifully set if you nail that WC.

                          3 months, 12 days ago

                          Worst thing about WCing around GW14 is I'll have to bring that idiot again for those fixtures! 🙄

            2. Bushwhacker
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Tuchel has changed tack quite radically, its weird given the results they were getting. He’s almost playing like Arteta (but knowing what he’s doing). I mean they were awfully lucky today.

        I don’t know about popular or not but it’s probably in the minority of what people expect.

        They certainly have the talent to do it. I’m looking forward to watching for sure.

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Yeah, reckon it will be fireworks.

          Pogba and Ronnie to control the game

      3. jia you

        would be typical and then we go back to being crap the following week!

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          This is exactly what will happen.

          And Ole gets another bite at the cherry

      4. pingissimus
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        It's that or total implosion.

        It feels like it's one of those two narratives. Lose in CL and the win seems off the radar to me. That could lead to a Mou like spiral

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Agreed

        2. Bushwhacker
          • 2 Years

          Ole has more luck in a day than Mourinho has had in his career.

      5. Bushwhacker
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Quite possible ; its definitely a game United get up for, playing home midweek so more rested. Be curious to see if Ole goes back to parking the bus after May.

    17. jia you

      64(-8) all out, KdB in for a hit worked out at least or I'd have captained Lukaku or Ronaldo...This No Salah malarkey is tough going!

      Ramsdale - Sanchez
      White - Duffy - Lowton - Livramento - Marcel
      Salah - Greenwood - Sarr - Gray - Gallagher
      Ronaldo - Lukaku - Antonio

      2 x FT, 0.3m ITB

      Not sure what to do:

      A. Sanchez > Raya
      B. Marcel > 5.0m
      C. Other?

      1. Jafooli
        • 9 Years

        I think Ronnie & Lukaku get one more game

        1. Mozumbus
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Absolutely no need to transfer out Lukaku.
            I'd get Raphinha. Greenwood can go.

            1. Jafooli
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Yeah, meant Lukaku if he blanks vs Norwich etc

            I think i'm done with Ronaldo. The fixture are unfavourable and the legs aren't what they were.

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Surely Ronaldo has to go? He is crap!

          Ronaldo to Vardy and Lowton to Azpi/Dias?

          1. Jafooli
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            True, but why Lowton over Marcel out?

            Marcel is gash

            1. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              3 months, 12 days ago

              Burnley are looking worse than Wolves but not much in it, you can get rid of Marcal instead. You can also go for "nailed" Cancelo instead 😉

              1. Jafooli

          Got to drop Ronaldo for Vardy.

      2. Scratch
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I don't know what I'm doing year, total lack of ideas, proper planning and it feels like I still haven't got my head in the game this season.
        Probably going to do Ronaldo to Lukaku this week Spine of the team looks good but i'm considering wildcarding nonetheless

        Sanchez, Bachmann
        TAA, Cancelo, Shaw, Livramento, White
        Salah, Saka, Raphinha, Benrahma, Bissouma
        Jimenez, Ronaldo, Antonio

        Would get rid of Bachmann, Shaw, Benrahma, Bissouma, Jimenez and Ronaldo and possibly TAA... worth the WC?

        1. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Not worth a WC, just Bachmann > Raya

          Gives you another GW to think

          1. Scratch
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Yeah I need to ditch Bachmann. Shaw doesn't seem worth holding either though a month or more ago I would have considered him locked until a WC at least.
            Bachmann & Shaw to Foster and a Chelsea DF would be good long term but I really want Lukaku now and for the next 3.

        2. Jafooli
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Or Shaw to anything

        3. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          many brought these in on WC this week or held them if they had them … it’s a good spine of a squad

          Sanchez
          TAA, Cancelo, Livramento, White
          Salah, Saka, Raphinha,
          Jimenez, Antonio

      3. Erange
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Current team:

          Ramsdale/Foster

          TAA/Cancelo/Christensen/White/Livra

          Salah/ Foden/ Raph/ Benrahma

          Lukaku/ Antonio/ Jimenez

          1 ft and 0.5 itb

          Should I:

          A. Roll the ft
          B. Benrahma to Mbeumo or Antonio to Toney (to get enough money to do Foden + Lukaku to Vardy + Son after gameweek 11).

          1. Jafooli

          Ronaldo has Liverpool, Spurs, ManCity, Chelsea and Arsenal in next 6 It is bad for his stats, as he needs Andorra and San-Marino types of rivals to score?

            Well Spurs and Arsenal aren't exactly terrible fixtures these days but yes, I'd obviously fancy him as a flat track bullly in that United team

            Coufal + Greenwood + Ings > Livra + Mbeumo + Vardy - 4
            Yes
            No

                Nope … why even sell Greenwood & Ings ?

                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Can keep Ings.
                    Greenwood has got tough fixtures ahead. Manutd is not playing well anyways I think. Greenwood to Mbeumo will release funds to reinforce elsewhere.

                  How is everyone's scores looking like after yesterday?

                  How many non-starters do you have?

                  1. Arctic monkeys
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Did great surprisingly, only Raphina didn't start for me and Livramento will come on for him.

                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    47 with Gray & Gallagher left. 1pt cameos for Dias and James, Lukaku and Ronaldo supposedly played. My Threemium punt hasn't been a great success

                      Same. I had Raphinha and Jota as non-starters. Livramento and Semedo to come in.

                      Antonio, Benny and White to come in.

                      I see that the average score is 36 yet I had a small red. Same for you?

                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        Yes - more medium red to be honest

                    No non-starters but having Shaw meant like playing with 10.

                    Green arrow. Benrahma and Antonio to go.

                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        59pts

                        Could have been even better had I not made a last minute switch 😆

                    Zombie team or real team?

                    The zombies are likely to put out 11 again and should end the week around 50k and in contention for FPL team of October! Currently on 70 with 3 good'uns to go and finished with GR of 1121 last time out 🙂

                    Real team is way behind in the mediocre pack. 59 from 7 and will only get 10.

                    1. Jafalad
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 12 Years
                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Real. So are you on 70 or 59?

                        • 3 Years
                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        Real team on 59 but low expectations of anything more than 65 which I guess will be high average no more. Zombies on 70 with a good chance of 80 plus.

                    • 5 Years

                    61 so far with Ramsdale and Antonio to go. Feels like many in that boat around me.

                    Overall rank 892 and only green arrows.

                    I give Lukaku one more shot then i may try Vardy

                  Are we unfairly overlooking Mane?

                    If Lukaku didn't have the run he is about to have, maybe.

                    His price make it tough

                      • 11 Years
                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      In retrospect he'd have been a much better pick than Ronaldo and saving 0.5...

                  • 11 Years
                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  This looks like a save right?

                  Ramsdale
                  Trent, Chilwell, Cancelo, Dias
                  Salah, Raphina, Saka, Foden
                  Lukaku, Antonio

                  Foster, Livramento, Brownhill, Davis
                  Bank 0.0m, 0FT

                    Yup

                    Though I may have dry heaved when I saw the bench 😉

                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Yep, bare bones! Was toying with Dias -> Azpil, but probably not worth the FT I suppose

                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    A very good side IMO. You do have 3 "rotation risks" with one decent bench though.

                      • 7 Years
                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Dias not a rotation risk i hope, oaccassional rest is inevitable

                      1. CAVEAT KING
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        • 7 Years
                        3 months, 12 days ago

                        Thinking more of Cancelo Chillwell Foden.

                        1. tokara
                          • 7 Years
                          3 months, 12 days ago

                          U r right

                        2. Jinswick
                          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                          • 11 Years
                          3 months, 12 days ago

                          I agree on Foden and Chilwell (although both on form and currently first choice IMO), but I think Cancelo is fairly nailed now. He may get the odd rest, like Dias, but expect him to start 90% of games.

                          1. CAVEAT KING
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                            3 months, 12 days ago

                            My only concern would be the ground he has to cover over a lot of games in the next few months. Lets face it, his defensive duties could be better. I have him so I am not knocking the choice. If Chilwell and him don't play you might want an upgrade on the bench.

                          2. CAVEAT KING

                            3 months, 12 days ago

                            Also, remember Alonso got easier games last season.

                    • 7 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    No choice with other issues TBH. I still think Alonso will get easier fixtures. (Well I am hoping so)

                  3 months, 12 days ago

                  Besides Raph/Mbeumo, are there any sub 7.0 midfielders worth looking at?

                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Personally think ESR is going to make big strides this season. Great value at 5.4

                    Maybe Saka?

                      3 months, 12 days ago

                      Things could change with Richa and DCL back. It could make things better or worse.

                  Ronnie to who ?

                  Kaku or Vardy ?

                  Toney Anto are the other forwards

                  1. Holmes
                    • 8 Years
                    3 months, 12 days ago

                    Luka has fixtures
                    Vardy has form

                    Whichever you prefer.

                      Form over fixtures definitely but Vardy's fixtures too are not half bad

                    Vardy

                    The man has an incredible consistency record when he is on a hot streak - 4th season in a row he's gone on a run like this averaging all but a goal a game for a sustained period.

                      I have been pondering over him for a while now. That guy is a machine.

                        Only marginal fly in the ointment is Europa

                        Palace battered Leicester after Europa last time and they looked really poor but he did still score.

                    Kane?

                    Jota to Mbeumo allows me both. One has fixture one has form. Hard choice

                  Was thinking of just doing Ronaldo to Kane (I already own Lukaku), who scores more ?

                  A) Kane (vs West Ham, Man U, Everton, Leeds, Burnley, Brentford)

                  B) Ronaldo (vs Liverpool, Spurs, Man City, Watford, Chelsea, Arsenal)

                    Kane is a definite wait and see. I would not want either as it stands ATM

                  What I noticed from the games yesterday for what it is worth.
                  Mbuemo will get points eventually. I have lost count how many points he has lost through hitting the post and yesterday was no exception. He was the guy on the end of things and Toney the enabler. Will that be enough as he is not on pens.
                  Cornet for Burnley is a different class than the rest of Burnley. I see him being good value at 6 mil in the future.
                  KDB was awful in the first half and his price will limit anyone getting him in. He needs a few more games to get up to speed IMO.
                  I was a little disappointed yesterday with TAA. I am not saying he is a bad pick but his chances of losing form have been evident in the past. Hopefully it is coming back from injury.
                  Not that Kaku is firing but his opportunities are limited by the way Chelsea play him at the moment. This guy is someone I cannot work out. If it was not for fixtures I might be looking somewhere else.
                  Mendy was flavor of the day and very good. Would not be surprised if people start getting him in. Just remember a clearance off the line. 2 attempts hitting the post and one his face would indicate Chelsea are not that good at the moment.
                  Firmino could be a trap as in other seasons. A hatty does not hide the fact he passed poorly especially in the first half.

                    Haha...did you watch all the games? Thank you anyway.

                    Agreed about Mbeumo. He might start netting more now that he has an easier run.

                    KDB is priced out and he seems to rarely score goals from open play these days.

                    TAA - he will come good. He had one decent effort second half.

                    Lukaku - yes he is very frustrating to own. I think he is getting marked out of games too.

                    I thought Buendia and Macgill had decent games for Villa.

                      I did actually. I live in South Africa and have this opportunity. Pool Citeh and Chelski I watched 90. Man U only got seee highlights as I have none of Leicester or ManU. TAA in my side but against Watford I expected more from him. Remember last year when he had a poor run of form. Hopefully due to poor central defender not getting the ball to him.

                    Firmino could be a trap. But that I think is 6 goals from his last 5 PL starts with one more off the bench in that time. So not a complete one off. Liverpool is the attack to be on and Jota is a wild finisher as often as not (if he plays) and Mane is as pricey as.

                    Will depend on budgets and structures but I can see 8.8 working out. Definitely not seeing (m)any mids over 7 I'd prefer. Now on watchlist.

                      I love Bobby as a player and I would love to get him. If Kaku did not have the fixture he has I would like a punt TBH. Bobby definitely started off ragged with his passing though.

                    The Firmino thing is hilarious - just shows how a player can go from being a complete FPL no-go zone to finding his way onto watchlists with literally one game against an absolute shambles of a team

                    I fully expect to see him in RMT’s during the week now, hopefully along with Bilva

                      I cannot argue with you. But he has got a few goals lately. The price point is good and the reason I brought him up is getting a view like Pingissimus and you.

                      And Shaw and Bruno of course because we all know that every season is wholly predicated on the last and it's a cinch to predict how many points players will score.
