Scout Notes

Kane and Wilson enter FPL differential conversation ahead of Gameweek 9

We continue our Fantasy Premier League (FPL) Gameweek 8 write-ups with analysis of Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur.

For a shorter summary of all of Saturday’s action, click here.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 2-3 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

  • Goals: Callum Wilson (£7.3m) | Tanguy Ndombele (£5.8m), Harry Kane (£12.1m), Son Heung-min (£10.1m)
  • Assists: Javier Manquillo (£4.0m), Jacob Murphy (£5.0m) | Sergio Reguilon (£5.1m), Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg (£4.9m), Kane
  • Own goals: Eric Dier (£4.6m)
  • Red cards: Jonjo Shelvey (£5.3m)
  • Bonus: Kane x3, Son x2, Wilson x2

KANE ENDS PREMIER LEAGUE GOAL DROUGHT

Kane and Wilson enter FPL differential conversation ahead of Gameweek 9 1

Having failed to score in any of his opening six Premier League appearances in 2021/22, Harry Kane (£12.1m) finally ended his goal drought against Newcastle United in Gameweek 8.

The England captain looked much more like his old self at St James’ Park, and resumed his link up with Son Heung-min (£10.1m) with an assist for the third goal. As a result, he bagged maximum bonus and ended the match with an impressive 12-point haul for his small army of owners.

Given Spurs’ next three fixtures – West Ham United (a), Manchester United (h) and Everton (a) – we perhaps have a little while longer to scout Kane’s performances, before his fixtures ease considerably between Gameweeks 12 and 15.

Interestingly, that also coincides with trickier runs for premium forwards Romelu Lukaku (£11.7m) and Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m), which may be a switch worth considering closer to the time, depending on how each of them perform during the coming weeks that is.

Son Heung-min, meanwhile, was once again on the scoresheet, and has now produced six attacking returns in just seven Premier League appearances this season. 

NDOMBELE’S INFLUENCE

Tanguy Ndombele (£5.8m) fired in Spurs’ opener on Sunday, and impressed in his more advanced central role. 

During the match, he registered five goal attempts and four shots in the box, more than any other player on the pitch. His 36 final-third touches – including nine in the penalty box – were also match-leading totals, and highlight his growing influence in Nuno Espirito Santo’s 4-2-3-1 formation.

It’s also worth noting that since Oliver Skipp’s (£4.5m) return to the starting XI in Gameweek 7, Spurs have looked a lot better defensively, something Nuno touched on in his post-match interview when discussing his new midfield set-up:

“It worked really well. We were able to be more solid in the middle of the park with Skipp and Hojbjerg being side by side, although we still allowed one of them to have freedom to support in attack. It was the same idea but a little bit different and it worked better.”

WILSON BACK ON THE FPL RADAR

Newcastle’s new era got off to a disappointing start at St James’ Park, but the return of talisman Callum Wilson (£7.3m) from injury was a real positive.

It took the 29-year-old just two minutes to find the back of the net, as he ended the match with a goal, two bonus and eight FPL points.

As for the Magpies, the reality is that the club remain without a win this season and now sit 19th in the table. They also have the worst defensive record in the division, having conceded 19 goals so far, while the underlying numbers are equally as bad.

MetricTotalRank v other Premier League teams

Shots in the box conceded7214th
Shots on target conceded4219th
Big chances conceded2220th
xGC15.2420th
Non-penalty xGC12.8717th

Encouragingly for their FPL owners, the likes of Conor Gallagher (£5.7m), Romelu LukakuIvan Toney (£6.4m) and Bryan Mbeumo (£5.5m) all take on the Magpies’ in the coming weeks.

“We were certainly beaten by the better team. After a wonderful start, unfortunately the problems that we’ve had for a while now defensively was there for everyone to see. The goals we gave away, you could say it was a lot of good play from Tottenham, but our defending left a lot to be desired to say the least.

I think we’ve started a few games like that – we’ve got off to a good start, we’ve scored and got our noses in front, but unfortunately at the moment, we’re not able to defend well enough as a team. I’m not criticising the back four or the midfield players, football is a team game, but from front to back at the moment, we’re not defending well enough.

We have tried to change and be a little bit more on the front foot, but it’s difficult because you cannot keep having to score three goals to win a match.” – Steve Bruce


Newcastle XI: Darlow, Manquillo, Lascelles, Clark, Ritchie, Hayden, Longstaff (Shelvey 60), Willock (Murphy 77), Joelinton, Saint-Maximin, Wilson (Fraser 77)

Tottenham XI: Lloris, Royal, Romero, Dier, Reguilon, Skipp, Hojbjerg, Ndombele, Moura, Son, Kane

    Team I would pick with Salah an Mane, thoughts?

    Raya Foster
    Trent Reguilon Pinnock Duffy Livra
    Salah Mane Son Gray D.Luiz
    Toney Vardy Broja

    Defence not that bad. With 2 wins on the trot and Kane breaking his duck, perhaps Spurs will turn the corner now and Reguilon is still a good pick. They could start tightening up at the back considering their run of fixtures coming up.

    Double up on Brentford defence also looking good for their great fixture run.

    1. Pedersen
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I wouldnt risk Broja yet. Too soon to say if he is nailed
      I doubt Reguilon is worth the money. Relies purely on assits. I would go White (if i am not to rotate some money away) or Janson (daring the double)

    2. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I’d like a Chelsea or City defender in place of Reguilon at the expense of Gray/Broja.

  2. JariL
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    So tricky to choose between Lukaku and Vardy (Ronaldo out)! Heart says Vardy, head says Lukaku.

    3 Red Arrows on the bounce and tempted to WC this lot, what do you think?

    Guatia* Foster
    TAA Livra Tierney Duffy Tmiskas*
    Salah Gallagher Saar Benrhama* Gilmour*
    Antonio* Ronaldo* Lukaku

    Want to get rid of Saar too with poor run of fixtures. I was going to wait for GW12 to play it, otherwise this week I have 1FT, and not sure who to rid of first? No Chelsea or City defenders is a concern.

    1. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah that’s a wild card I’m afraid.

    2. JariL
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I would probably WC to be honest. There's definitely enough to fix.

    3. hustler7
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      My thoughts too! Thanks guys!

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Time to WC, your defence and midfield need a shake up.

    5. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah that's an easy WC. I would've pulled the trigger last week with no City or Chelsea defense.

    6. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      You could just do Ronaldo > Vardy & Benrahma > Mbuemo & see how you fare this week

      You could also Wildcard, but might be better holding for another week or two of information

    7. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      If you are adverse to taking a hit or two then there’s enough changes to warrant a wild card there, I wouldn’t be holding Sarr if you pull the trigger either.

      If you do want to save the WC then possibly Tierney & Ron > Vardy & Chilwell?

    8. bench boost for every gamew…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      This is not wc for me,
      GUAITA is perhaps the best 4.5 goalie, no need to do anything.
      Defence is not great but needs not much because you got Livra and Tierney with both decent matches next week.
      Midfield is a bit weak, but for next week ok. So my thinking here is a hit where you remove Ronaldo and get a City def for Tsimikas. Play 4-3-3 this week, Duffy on bench. Sarr away against Everton is not the worst option to play. You can perhaps also go Vardy if you fancy him but not sure if you can afford a City def for Tsimikas then?

  4. Mr Ozil
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Would you do Ronaldo > Lukaku -4?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Nope

      1. JariL
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Ronaldo -> Vardy -4?

    2. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I would be very tempted, you’re basically backing Lukaku to at least brace against Norwich which is very likely.

  5. Slitherene
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Does Ronaldo (LIV) -> Vardy (bre), for a hit make sense?

    Sanchez ¦ Steele
    Rudiger Digne Azpilicueta
    Salah Raphinha Gray Gallagher Mbeumo
    Ronaldo Lukaku
    ¦ White Dier Dennis

    Will have 2.3 ITB after this move.

  6. FOO FIGHTER

    "Armando is a striker who scored in the international break. I think it is time for him also to show he can play 90 minutes good"

    This was after the Leeds. Is he an option now in a front 3?

    1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I don’t think so

      Southampton score less goals than pretty much any other team in the league

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        At that price you can't really go wrong though if you're in like a strong 15 setup and need a super budget striker.

    2. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Same category as last week's Hwang.

      He'll presumably score again and could be value but strong chance that there is better value in midfield at a similar price (ie 0.5 or less more). A slight Hwang sceptic but think he's the better option given he plays alongside Jimi. Good history for attacking combos there.

      Who does Broja get to play off? Southampton look sterile.

  7. JariL
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Are these good moves over the next 3 GWs?

    GW9: Ronaldo --> Vardy -4
    GW10: Benrahma --> Mbeumo
    GW11: Sarr --> Son

    1. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Planning transfers 3 weeks in advance will never, ever go to plan.

      Injuries, suspensions, rotation all tend to scupper plans.

    2. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I'd WC if you still have. You can buy all of those in one go. And then get ahead of the curve. You'll always be playing catch-up with that plan. All are good to buy now.

      If you don't have WC, then yes this looks a solid plan.

      1. JariL
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I do still have the WC, but just not sure I have quite enough to pull the trigger:

        0FT 1.3ITB

        Sanchez
        TAA / Rudiger / Christensen
        Salah / Foden / Raphinha / Benrahma / Sarr
        Ronaldo / Antonio

        4.0gk / White / Livramento / 4.5fwd

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Mmm fair enough. It kinda depends on your opinion on West Ham assets. I think there's a decent argument to ditch all of them on WC now in which case I'd hit the button.

        2. Konstaapeli
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          No need to WC that. Wouldn't take a hit for Ronaldo to Vardy.

          1. JariL
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Thanks. So Vardy over Lukaku?

            1. Konstaapeli
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              I went Lukaku on last weeks WC. The fixtures are so so green. Vardy could well be the better choice. Who knows, it's futbol.

    3. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I would probably just do Sarr to Mbeumo tbh

      1. JariL
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I have a feeling that Sarr might get a goal in one of these next two fixtures (eve, SOU) so I don't like selling for a hit.

  8. CROYDON DE BRUYNE
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    GW16 looks an ideal time to WC if you can hang onto it that long, some very nice runs of Fixtures:

    Arsenal: Southampton(h), West Ham(h), Leeds(a), Norwich(a), Wolves(h)

    Chelsea: Leeds(h), Everton(h), Wolves(a), Aston Villa(a), Brighton(h)

    Liverpool: Aston Villa(h), Newcastle(h), Tottenham(a), Leeds(h), Leicester(a)

    Man City: Wolves(h), Leeds(h), Newcastle(a), Leicester(h), Brentford(a)

    Man United: Norwich(a), Brentford(a), Brighton(h), Newcastle(a), Burnley(h)

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      12 is better. The earlier you use the WC the more you protect team value and the sooner you get ahead of the curve.

      It's also an international break.

    2. BoleynWin
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      City, Liverpool & Chelsea have decent fixtures between now & GW16 so you’d like to load up on them well before then.

      The swing for United is a big one so hopefully they have kicked on a gear by then.

      1. Konstaapeli
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        United with a new manager bounce too 😆

    3. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      European club games finished by then too, possibly less rotation. But WC when you feel the need to do so. Might be wiser to avoid defenders with no attacking threat in games that look tricky for a result. But attackers can still score a few goals too in trickier looking fixtures. I wouldn't WC just because of fixtures unless players were in form or look promising.

    4. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Gw16 was my original plan to wildcard but injuries and too many players stinking out my team put an end to that plan and wilcarded last week.

      The fixture swings do look nice for gw16 if you can hold out til then but it really does depend on the condition of your team

  9. waltzingmatildas
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Trying to find a wildcard draft I like, that isn't just what everyone else did last week!
    What do you reckon?

    Mendy Foster
    TAA Cancelo Chilwell White Livra
    Salah Son Raph Mbuemo ESR
    Vardy Toney Broja

    Cancelo, Chilwell, ESR, Broja are all rotation risks, maybe even Mendy.
    Plus, no Lukaku or Antonio

    1. JariL
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Really like it. No Lukaku against Norwich is obviously a risk, but if you wouldn't want to captain anyway, I would take it.

      Kinda makes me want to WC as well...

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Thanks. Yeah, think I'll just be sticking with Salah. It's definitely a risk, but think it can improve the rest of the team.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Actually looks very good tbh.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Cheers

    3. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Looks good. I don't think ESR is a rotation risk.

      1. GreennRed
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        No but needs to bring more returns cos he's on my naughty list. Tonight hopefully!

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Have him too. 1+1 with max bonus would do just fine.

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Cheers guys. I like being able to fit Vardy and Son in there.
      I could probably do Mendy to Sanchez and Vardy to Lukaku

    5. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      It's the perfect time to get off Sanchez. Mendy is the best of the premiums but I think I still prefer Ramsdale + 1.5m.

      I like the team but it has too many bench headaches for me. I want at least one perma 3rd bencher like Brownhill or Davis. Would downgrade ESR or Broja and just store the funds. You never know when you'll need them.

      1. waltzingmatildas
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Hmm, think I was just blown away by Mendy's performance.
        With the rotation risks, I thought having decent 15 was the way to go.
        Appreciate the feedback

    6. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Mendy to Raya
      Chilwell to Azpi
      Then downgrade ESR/Broja and upgrade the other or keep funds.

  10. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year

    Ronaldo > lukaku worth a -4 or just get behind the sofa and hope for the best ?

    1. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Hope

    2. JariL
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Or Ronaldo --> Vardy -4 and cross your fingers?

    3. TheTinman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Worth

    4. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Lukaku should do well v Norwich. But Ronaldo has to be licking his lips to be playing Liverpool again. Van Dijk is surely expecting an air attack but Cristy isn't bad on the ground either!

    5. pingissimus
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Touch and go. Which is the other move?

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I’ve already done mbeumo to jota before jota price drop and mbeumo rise although he didn’t go up in the end

        Not having a 8m mid who isn’t even going to come off the bench

        1. pingissimus
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Fair move that

          Also stuck on Lukaku. Not an iota of confidence in him and Chelsea defence has scored as many goals as their attack this season. Only saw highlights but looked fish out of water from what I saw.

          May duck him here but with Vardy already in not sure where else I'd go apart from Spurs! Form over fixtures is quite normal for me but it seems iffy. 😉

    6. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Would wait until midweek games and then have a look, a lot can happen between now and then.

  11. TheTinman
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Adam Armstrong.

    The right thing to do is bench him and play Mbeumo vs Leicester instead right?

    Wait and see what happens after another GW of information and then I have 2FTs to use where he can be removed. Probably along with Mount if he doesn't start vs Norwich.

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah I'd play Mbeumo on current form over almost anyone tbh. Brentford look a real force.

      1. TheTinman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        How many times does he need to hit the post 😆

        1. GreennRed
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          The answer my friend, is playing on the wing....

          Bob just popped into my head when you said how many times!

    2. Osfezt
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I'm losing patience over A.Armstrong. I am most likely going to sell him for Toney going into the next GW - there is probably better punts around at the moment than Armstrong.

    3. Monster Muppets
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 16 days ago

      He had games during international break - my guess is he was just rested.
      They wont spend that much on a forward and just throw him on the bench. Especially given the limited amount of opportunities he has been handed to actually grab some points (hard to score with no service...)

      He will start on my bench too though, i need to see him start again to trust him.

      1. TheTinman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        My exact thinking.

      2. Osfezt
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Didn't knew he played over the IB. Then I see your reasoning. I still rate Toney higher however, Brentford just looks like a fearless side at the moment.

        1. Monster Muppets
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Mbeumo is my Brentford cover, liking him more than Toney tbh. I went for a Maupay-stunt and will keep him till after NEW (maybe even LEE if they keep f*** up)

    4. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yep.

      Bench next week to assess options to move out in gw10 if you have the squad depth to cover the benching for gw9

  12. Finding Timo

    Can Chalobah keep his place v Norwich ?

    1. GreennRed
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Good questiin. Not sure about Rudiger's fitness and Silva possible start.

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Oh ok thanks hsve to see if either in CL squad but sounds like could get dropped

    2. caldracula
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Would imagine It would be something like

      Azpi Christensen Silva
      James. Chilwell/Alonso

      1. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Ok thanks sounds like not worth the risk

  13. The Train Driver
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Sarr > Raphina - 4? Or wait with risk to be priced out.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      That's a long term move so worth the risk if priced out.

  14. OptimusBlack
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Which is better ?
    Mbeumo or Toney
    Toney + KDB
    Mbeumo + Kane

    1. JariL
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Toney + Son

    2. GreennRed
      • 10 Years

      1. denial
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        I'm thinking Toney and Son on 2FT this week, then Antonio to Nacho the week after.

  15. denial
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Probably many considering the same:

    A/ Kane and Mbuembo
    B/ Nacho and Son
    C/ Toney and Son

    Thanks

    Getting in DCL for GW8 was a facepalm move. Taking him out for a hit could be another facepalm so I am just going to wait for Benitez presser.

    1. jackruet
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 16 days ago

      DCL would be a decent pick. I would just wait how he starts after this break. Jimenez is a better option now

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      He's said he will take longer to be back to fitness than Richarlison.

      So a few games and you've jumped the gun.

  17. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
    • 2 Years

    1FT 2.9 itb
    Foster
    Azpi Cancelo White
    Salah Raph Saka Sarr
    CR7 Antonio Toney

    Sanchez Shaw Brownhill Williams

    A) Shaw + CR7 > Chilwell + Lukaku (c) -4
    B) CR7 > Lukaku (c) free
    C) Wildcard

    1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Quite like the idea of saving wildcard until GW12

    2. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      B. White has a decent fixture so no hit required.

  18. The Units
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Thinking of a slightly different WC team. Not sure on the GK.

    Sanchez Steele
    TAA Cancelo Christensen White Livra
    Salah Mane Raph Mbeumo ESR
    Vardy Toney Hwang

    Thoughts?

    1. Boom XhakaLacaSaka
      • 2 Years

      Guatia?

        • 11 Years

        Yeah worth a look.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Hwang > Broja and then you can possibly Christensen > Chilwell.

      1. The Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years

        Yep budget does stretch. Good idea thanks.

      B

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years

      I'd go Raphinha

    3. SKENG

      A

    4. Mo Mane
      • 3 Years

    What to do with this lot that has taken me from 10k --> 137k in 4 weeks.

    2FT and 0.0ITB

    Ramsdale
    Duffy Rudiger Shaw
    Gallagher Salah(c) Gray Benrahma
    Antonio Ronaldo Lukaku

    Foster Sarr Coady Livra

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Ronnie and Shaw out too obvious?

  25. SKENG
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Early thoughts on this please?? 1 FT, 0.3 ITB

    Ramsdale
    TAA Cancelo Azpi
    Salah Foden Raphinha Harrison
    Lukaku Jimenez Antonio

    Foster Livramento Brownhill Williams

    A) Harrison > Mbeumo
    B) Save FT (and possibly play Livramento over Harrison)
    C) something else?

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A seems decent

    2. Boly Would
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      A.
      Nice team

  26. Stimps
    • 8 Years

    Thoughts on

    Jimi, Sarr -> Vardy, ESR (-4)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Maybe, Vardy so hot right now.

  27. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Badly need a palace goal tonight

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      They will score

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah same.

  28. JariL
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    I would have exact money to WC to this:

    Ramsdale
    TAA / Cancelo / Chilwell
    Salah / Son / Foden / Raphinha / Mbeumo
    Vardy / Toney

    Foster / White / Livramento / 4.4fwd

    Tempting...

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Very nice

    2. Maddamotha
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Is Chilwell nailed now?

      1. JariL
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Not nailed but worth the risk if you have decent defenders on the bench to cover for him IMO.

    3. pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Do it

  29. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 16 days ago

    KDB > Son for free this GW?

    KDB on WC was always the placeholder for Son.

    I’d have to do it anyway next gw to generate the cash for ESR > Raphina

    Team would be -

    Ramsdale
    TAA - Dias - James - Livramento
    Salah - Son - Foden - Raphinha
    Lukaku - Hwang

    Foster - Armstrong - Manquillo - Brownhill

    1. pundit of punts
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Have enough in the bank for Armstrong > Toney

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      City get to beat up Utd only the week after Spurs

      1. pundit of punts
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Varane would be back

        More assured of Son points in a low scoring Spurs game than of KDB’s points in a high scoring City game

    3. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      No. Hold KdB.

      1. pundit of punts
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        See my reasoning above

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Son's fixtures are not great. whu MUN eve. Might as well wait. KdB is a strong differential keep him.

          The biggest thing you should avoid doing is getting rid of decent options to chase players you really want. Fix the problems in front of you.

          1. pundit of punts
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            3 poor defenses for Son up next is what I see

    4. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      Yeah for sure.

  30. Eightball
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 16 days ago

    Do we think Alonso is totally out of the picture now Chilwell is back? I got him in on a gw7 wildcard (should have gone azpi) and he hasn't played 1 bloody minute!! I feel like I need to get rid. I still fancy a chelsea defender but now sure which one. I'm thinking of Reece JAMES as I think if he is back fit he will likely not rotate too much.

    1. Konstaapeli
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 16 days ago

      I think Alonso and Chilwell will share minutes. James should see more game time now.
