  • Gameweek 27: A possible Double Gameweek if teams with an outstanding match-up are eliminated by the FA Cup fifth-round stage. Four sides, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool, will have their weekend matches postponed because of the EFL Cup final, however.
  • Gameweek 28: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Liverpool, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 29: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 30: No chance of a Double Gameweek and a near-certain chance of it being a Blank Gameweek, as it will clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals.
  • Gameweek 33: A free midweek does allow for a Double Gameweek, although the weekend games do clash with the FA Cup semi-finals, too.
  • Gameweek 36: A free midweek allows for a Double Gameweek. This is likely to be the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

*Aston Villa v Burnley or Leeds v Aston Villa could be played on Saturday/Sunday February 5/6. That would mean either the Gameweek 24 deadline being brought forward a few days or the fixture being tagged onto the end of Gameweek 23.

    How times have changed as I am now tempted to bring in Joelinton for Wilson. It’s either him or King (enabler for bringing in Kane for the weekend).

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      King

    2. bigwig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Joelinton is playing a sort of swashbuckling attacking mid role atm, you want someone with a bit more attack potential. For sure King

      1. Not again Shirley
        • 5 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        My thinking was that with Wilson injured he could be pushed further forward of necessity. May be wrong though.

        1. bigwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Could happen, yeah. He's been the best though in that position. I think Gayle might start for Wilson

        2. Do I Not Like Orange
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          What's his goals and assists record like in the dozens of games he'd played further forward in the past 2 years?

          1. Not again Shirley
            • 5 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Terrible but he just seems to be a better player now. Will probably go safe with King anyway. Was just a thought.

    3. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      King

    4. FFS Ultras are for Kinnear
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Joelinton is more of a Patrick Viera player nowadays

    5. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Bit risky for my liking!

    6. Fabreghastly

      29 days, 17 hours ago

      King has been a Troll recently but do I remember right that he was a DGW monster back in the day? Maybe he is the guy these next few weeks

      Joelinton has never done enough to earn the tag 'Troll'

  2. How do you make your transfer decisions?
    thegaffer82
    • 10 Years
    29 days, 18 hours ago

    When making a transfer do you…?

    A) Identify who you want to bring in, *then*look at who you can sell in your team to get that person.

    B) Identify who you really want to sell in your squad, *then* look for appropriate replacements in that position and within your budget.

    C) Just wing it

    1. Henryyy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      A combination but usually B

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      B

    3. Giovanni Giorgio
      • 8 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Yes

      1. thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Lol.
        Wasn’t really a yes/no question. But thx for your contribution 😉

    4. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      More B than A, but usually a mix of both.

    5. Feanor
      • 12 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      D) Get it wrong 90% of the time

    6. F4L
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      A for sure, which probably is the bad way of doing transfers as you end up selling decent players 😆

    7. Tonyawesome69
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      B - identify weak links in my team

    8. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Both A and B, sometimes C and regretted it 😛

    9. Snooze ya lose
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      B

    10. Baps hunter

      Both often. Sometimes a player is so good and has plum fixtures, that I want him in. Sterling scored a hattie once and Pukki scored vs Liv and had good fixture. One mid priced to Sterling and Kane to Pukki to fund it.

      But after starting this season with Barnes and Harrison over Raph and Benrahma, I soon learned my mistake and don't know which one was the main reason. Antonio on the other had I wanted out because he had been poor and his fixtures turned sour. Don't even remenber who came to his place (Wood vs Nor possibly).

      Every week in looking at the form of the players I own and the form of players I don't own.

      However hot that form is either way dictates who needs to be sold Vs who needs to be bought.

      I'd hope I can rest on who needs to be bought as it means all my players are doing well

    12. Zinedine Kilbane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      29 days, 17 hours ago

      Great question which has left me soul searching

    13. Flowsick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      29 days, 16 hours ago

      Mostly A since transfers are usually forward-looking and I have an idea of who could be a good transfer in. Who I sell is largely dependent on team structure, which is important to keep flexible.

      This season some players have proven tough to sell, so for the first time ever I've gone for 14/15 players instead of the usual 5th mid/5th def fodder. It has proven to be wildly successful in the first half of the season.

    14. Hooky
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 15 hours ago

      Magic 8 ball

    15. Bobby Digital
      • 4 Years
      29 days, 13 hours ago

      B

    16. The Red Devil
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 3 hours ago

      Ideally I'd like it to be A, but covid related postponements means I've been mostly doing B this season

    17. Dreams
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      28 days, 20 hours ago

      B all the time.

    As a non Spurs asset owner, non Salah owner I do feel like I got away with one yesterday.

    C'mon big Phil tonight

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      You did

    2. Meechoo115
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Same here but captained Trent

      • thegaffer82
        • 10 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        You (and I) absolutely did.
        That Salah penalty miss was 1st pen he’s missed since 2017.
        Kane was an armpit hair away from another goal (assisted by Son).
        Straight away we’re talking double figure points swings there…

        1. bigwig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          yeah it's unbelievable luck really. I don't really know why I don't own any of them, I guess it's been a bit of a bizarre few week. I've bought Antonio twice and changed my keeper twice for example

          1. thegaffer82
            • 10 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Ha, I’m the same pal with the keepers Sanchez > DDG > Ramsdale > Lloris 🙁

            But funnily enough I’m in the black points wise, even taking hits for most of those.

            1. bigwig
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              I hear ya. sometimes the best thing to do is nothing but if you're player is blanking anyway taking a -4 is more of a -2, it's more fun making tranny's though even if it's detrimental in the long term!

    3. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      29 days, 18 hours ago

      Is James still on the 5 bookings tightrope? Just wondering if Tuchel might leave him out so he isn't suspended for Liverpool?

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        Don't think so, think they've played 19 games.

        1. Rains of Castamere
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          OK ta

    4. Dynamic Duos

      Is EFL cup semi final going to be one leg?

      1. Rains of Castamere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        29 days, 18 hours ago

        No

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 8 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          So no double 21 for Spurs?

          1. Meechoo115
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              Correct

        2. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Last i heard it was still 2. Would be good if they make it one though.

      2. Meechoo115
          29 days, 18 hours ago

          Captain this week?

          A. Jota
          B. Foden
          C. Ronaldo

          1. JONALDINHO
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Wouldn’t think about it until doubles are announced

          2. Rainer
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Absolutely not Jota.

            Wolves are very solid and will love frustrating United.

            Foden is a great option if he starts, playing vs the perfect team who love to role over for City and take a beating.

          3. DannyDrinkVodka
            • 2 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            All of those seem terrible

            1. DannyDrinkVodka
              • 2 Years
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              Agreed that Foden could be good if there were a reasonable certainty regarding a start

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            29 days, 18 hours ago

            Probably Watkins if the DGW is as expected

          1. Meechoo115

              I did Ronaldo last gw. Trent this week

              It's good for the game at least.

              1. Eat my goal!

              I had Son captain both these weeks. But, it was terrible 90 mins during the Liverpool game.

            • European Bob
              • 9 Years
              29 days, 18 hours ago

              It gives more opportunity for the strong to separate themselves from the weak. One extra player and a weekly decision on captain choice

            Think its finally time for Kane, doing Laca>Kane but with Kane rising and laca falling its now James that gotta go over Rudiger. Best 4.5 defender ?

                I definitely like Cash as a James/Alonso replacement if Villa DGW is confirmed.

                      Rodgers initially said he should be fine, then said he was sore. Nothing to suggest long lay off

                        Rogers also said Justin's injury wasn't serious last season and it was an ACL.
                        Maddison's done his calf plenty of times and from what I remember it was a few weeks each time.
                        I'm nursing a calf strain myself at the moment and they are annoying to heal

                        Would love DCL too, hopefully he gets some gametime soon, even in the FAC.

                    He might be a Bayern player by the end of Jan.

                      A rested Broja has got Newcastle next (assuming not postponed) and possibly a double so no from me as things stand

                        Laca to Antonio. Bench James

                        I would play Livra over Dennis or James anyway

                        Laca has to go. Prob James too

                        Watkins and Reguilon seem good swaps or an AV def of your preference

                      After weeks of careful planning and setting up a strong squad, it has now become a mess in order to field at least 9-10 players every week during these recent uncertain times.

                      Ramsdale, Lloris
                      TAA, Cancelo, Rudiger, Lamptey, Dalot
                      Bernardo, Gallagher, Son, Bowen, Jota
                      Lacazette, Watkins, Dennis
                      1FT, 2.8m itb

                      Who would you sell first? My thinking is:
                      A) Lloris + Lacazette -> Bachmann + Kane for a hit.
                      B) Lloris -> Bachmann (wait one more week for Kane)
                      C) Lacazette -> 11.2m (Vardy / King / Jesus / Antonio / Calvert-Lewin)
                      D) Rudiger -> van Dijk
                      E) Something else

                      1. Tonyawesome69
                        • 3 Years
                        29 days, 18 hours ago

                        Laca to King

                        1. banskt

                          29 days, 17 hours ago

                          King is attractive for the short term, but Calvert-Lewin is attractive for the long term. Also, Jesus might get more minutes with Mahrez away. Same with Vardy with Iheanacho away.

                      Any requirement to trigger a WC here? I’d like to golf off and just move out Foden to tielemans/Maddison

                      Ramsdale (Foster)
                      Livramento Cancelo TAA (Dier, White)

                      Have to be careful if DGW's in GW 21 and GW 22 which one to use the FH in as can't use them twice in a row.

                        I am wary of using FH in GW21. Liverpool Chelsea could be 0:0 or 3:2. Either way, James and TAA could score better than a Burnley defender

                      Watford season ticket holder’s apparently have received e-tickets for a game the first midweek in 2022… triple gameweek territory now!!

                          Opportunity for a third fixture midweek of w/c 10/01, when the Carabao Cup second legs are on… that midweek was the suggested dates for the dgw originally.

                      I just listened to Gianni and AZ on team selection.
                      They were talking about Dennis having a DGW GW21. Maybe they did not realize Dennis is away 3 January and would end up with only one as all AFCON players, regardless of the GW.

                        Probably not, most of the pro's rely on others in their process. It makes them questionable pundits

                          Wow, pull no punches Ginkapo!
                          As said below, I saw from Ranieri that Dennis was a doubt to go for AFCON.

                            He is in a very bad mood today (smile)

                        Ranieri was saying he might not go, he might be an option depending on what happens.

                        https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-10352645/Watford-Emmanuel-Dennis-miss-AFCON-Ranieri-claims-Nigeria-missed-deadline-call-star.html

                          That is highly unlikely. Think of the turmoil for the player. If Dennis wants to stay then fair enough. Not being a pain Az but it might be worth a mention before many walk blindly into a Dennis DGW and find out they don't.

                            I think all I said was that he might be an option in the DGW, I don't think I was saying that people should rush out and buy him. As with all players, we want info.
                            I completely agree with you on the turmoil, surely he goes, but there is an element of doubt.

                              I am sure you were not intending. Just how it came out. Anyway, sorted now I think.

                          I don't think Watford will annoy a very important player by blocking him!!

                        There's talk of some staying for a dgw and Watford trying to stop Dennis playing at all in Cameroon.

                        Not sure what grounds that would be for international tournament football.

                          Yeah it's very weird, saying that an email didn't come in.
                          Enough to cause an element of doubt on his involvement though. Obviously if he's called up, he's a no go!

                            Good reason to think highly unlikely to happen surely

                        Dennis is not definitely going to AFCON due to an administrative hoohah but yeah they should at least have mentioned that otherwise it looks pretty dubious advice.

                          Pretty sure I just said that if theres a DGW, the likes of King, Dennis and Gallagher could all be decent options.
                          Of course it depends on their availability, thats pretty obvious, right?

                            Listen again Az. When you were talking about Daka being injured to 15th Jan.

                              have added a note to the vid.
                              Bear in mind we are talking about a hypothetical DGW here though, so I think the reaction has been a bit OTT, but noted!

                                Jeez Az. All I did was point out a possible issue with what has been said. It is all subjective and everyone makes mistakes. If you are wrong admit it. If not, get the boxing gloves out. I wished I said nothing now, even if it is supposed to be interactive.

                          Everyone saying the same thing. Think about it. The chances of Dennis, after just making friends with the new manager is going to rock the boat.

                        I'd still play him even if he only plays one match and I'm not selling him either.

                        I placed some bets this evening, which I never do.

                        Toney and Mahrez to have 2+ shots on target, 4+ corners for each team and 2+ cards for each team in the city game.

                        Lukaku and Maupay to score and Rudiger and burn to be carded in the Chelsea game.

                      Breaking: Christian Pulisic starts at right wing-back and Reece James starts at left wing-back for #Chelsea against Brighton.

                      [via iG: cfcnewspage]

                      Ffs Alonso man...

                        Kinda expected this with Pool up next
                        Alonso is as it is pathetic but Pulisic or CHO at wingback vs Salah and TAA is even more trouble

                        Predictable enough that I did Alonso -> Reggy for a hit although I was expecting Reece right and CHO left

                      When we free hit during the doubles are most of you keeping the likes of Cancelo and TAA in your teams?

                      Virtually everyone in the top 10k has those. Any points they get is not going to improve your rank unless captained.

                      Just for one week I'm going to gamble and have a full 11 play twice.

                      Think it would be worth it.

                        Yes but how many players ACTUALLY play twice? It never works out, DGW’s ALWAYS ALWAYS disappoint.

                          Depends who you go for.

                          Villa and Burnley are not going to rotate are they.

                      Ahhh, Alonso not starting tonight then

                      Pulisic & James the wing-backs.

                        Good cause I have no bench

                          They did that because Lamptey will terrorize Alonso 😆

                          Pulisic wingback is rock'n'roll

                        A long time coming that Alonso benching, nice GW for it.

                            Or a new audience

                          He hasn’t been that bad, just ‘done a job’. Tuchel did warn he can’t play every game though.

                          If Digne goes to chelsea in January alonso is never starting again.
                          He’s terrible

                            Digne would be very tasty at Chelsea, especially if he got a few set pieces.

                              His crossing is right up there with the best in the league honestly,and yeah he’ll be on a lot of set pieces as well.

                        Assuming Rudiger starts I might actually want a Chelsea clean sheet for once.
