Mark Sutherns’ FPL Gameweek 12 preview and latest team plans

Andy North and Mark Sutherns are back after the internationals, with the latter breaking a recent hiatus from Blackbox to chat Fantasy Premier League (FPL) once again.

Mark is recording for our subscribers every Gameweek throughout the upcoming campaign, so sign up via this link in order to see his regular appearances.

With four new manager appointments, a clamour for Spurs attacking assets and the regular flirtation with an alternative to Mohamed Salah (£13.0m) as captain, there’s plenty for Andy and Mark to chew over.

And of course, they dip into their own teams to chat their current thinking ahead of Saturday’s much anticipated deadline.

      Jimi a potential doubt due to travel (although he did train on Fri).

        (Foster: Vardy ESR Brownhill)

        Dilemma.
        I want to shift funds to midfield for Jota and Foden medium term. Do I go early or hold?

        A. Vardy+B'hill to Jota+Davis (then Mbuemo to Foden next week)
        B. Hold. Do the moves next week with the torment that Vardy has Watford

        1. Fpl Richie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Both -4 eventually but I'm okay with it because it's long term

        2. Holmes
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          If you are going to drop Vardy next week, might as well do this week.

        3. Fpl Richie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Yes that was my thought. Obviously it reduces flexibility in case of injury etc I guess. It's maddening because it looks fine obviously - but getting the timing for formation change is hard.

        When did this get posted? I used to love the pre match preamble, and I am happy to play these videos on my computer while I work during the week (I draw - it's possible to not be distracted by videos) but I'm not gonna sit around watching a video on a Saturday morning.

        1. The Knights Template

                Did you ever watch that film was it deep blue sea? The one where Samual L Jackson gets munched by a massive techno shark just after one of his big monologue speeches? Terrible film. I loved it

          Preamble was my favourite ffs read of the week, you don't miss much not watching as this video got nothing to do with preamble.

          Preamble was my fave article. I guess the video is what the kids like these days but the old school remember the written preamble and Marks eloquent delivery of it. Shame its gone.

            Yes that is something I was just considering. Kane and Wison in also appeals too. Looks like I have to the forward route. 🙁

            1. CRO KLOPP
              • 4 Years

              Or a hit with Benny to Gallagher if you want to go Son and Wilson

                • 12 Years

                That's an interesting idea. I quite like it. Been averse to hits. Thank you. 🙂

          Get Edouard over WIlson and upgrade white to James the following gw

            Not convinced with Edouard esp gametime. Ta. Would love James though - best eye test last time out.

          I've got Wilson and he hasn't been pulling up trees.

          See how the team respond i guess...

            New manager though committed to attcking.

        Lord Lundstrum 1st 10 pl games- 1 goal 1 assist 4 cs

        Lord Livramento 1st 10 pl games- 1 goal 1 assist 5 cs

        Lundstrum was deemed essential with everyone starting him but Livra is considered just a bench fodder and many benching against the worst attack in the league

        Why im i not feeling the same energy with Livramento? Just because he's not playing in midfeild?

          The attacking wingbacks are killing his hype.

          I’ve got Trent, Chilly, James and Cancelo.

          Im playing 5ATB this week for the first time with Liv!

          Probably due to lack of trust in Saints defense

          1. HurriKane
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 4 days ago

            This narrative needs to stop . this is not last years soton defense we are talking about

            Saints has been rock solid after a wobbly start Infact only city liverpool chelsea and westham has conceded fewer goals than soton all season

            1. HurriKane
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              City scored 11 goals in 4 before they faced soton and soton kept a cs against them

              westham scored 10 goals in 3 before they faced soton and soton kept a cs against them

              they are really reslient with their defensive setup under ralph at the moment

            2. Holmes
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 4 days ago

              Pretty sure they have always been the same. They go on a run of decent defensive performance before falling apart (or fall apart before going on a decent run).

              Things could be different this time as manager must have realized that this attack is not good enough, so defensive approach would be better. I will continue to play Livramento occasionally based on fixtures, wont play in difficult games irrespective of their form. (But then again, I never owned Lundstram as well)

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          See how Brentford get on at Newcastle.

          They could come good or they could be going soon?

      15. Releasebreaks
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        What is best strategy?

        a- buy TAA and play 442
        b- buy Jota and play 352

        1. Weak Become Heros
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Both not an option? Id probably lean towards A long term but Jora will represent value over Christmas

        2. Boz
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Try and get both. Flexibility will be important over Christmas

      18. Jafooli
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 4 days ago

        Reckon Havertz starts?

        1. tabby98
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          Most likely as Lukaku is still out

        2. HurriKane
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 4 days ago

          yes lukaku not match fit yet

        I think Jota or James is the priority.

        A) Mount to Jota
        B) Duffy to James (5atb)
        C) Save
