INJURIES AND BANS

FPL team news: Injury updates ahead of EFL Cup Quarter Finals

Takehiro Tomiyasu (£4.7m) missed out for Arsenal today with a calf injury, despite featuring against Liverpool on Thursday, and has subsequently been pulled out of international duty with Japan.

“Well, Tomiyasu had an injury and we didn’t have anybody to play in that position against Liverpool. He really wanted to push, he tried and he played the 90 minutes, and he felt it again. So, he will be out for a couple of weeks. Right now, he needs to recover, his only focus has to be to have the best possible treatment. To look after himself, and try to be available for us as quickly as he can. He will be out for a few weeks.” – Mikel Arteta on Takehiro Tomiyasu’s absence

Elsewhere, Sean Dyche suggested Charlie Taylor (£4.4m) could be fit for Watford, in the second match of Burnley’s Double Gameweek.

“I would hope so but you can never know so we will see how the next four or five days go. He’s got a knock on his foot in a training game. That cost him today and we will see how that settles down.” – Sean Dyche on if Charlie Taylor will be fit for Watford

However, there was no mention of an injury to fellow full-back Matthew Lowton (£4.4m), who was an unused substitute at the Emirates, though Sean Dyche did suggest after the match that we’d be seeing more of his replacement, Connor Roberts (£4.5m), in the future.

“Connor has done well, he’s only had 60 minutes of an Under-23 game in weeks but he is a very fit lad. We’ve got to look at what we’re doing as staff. What can activate a change and give you something different. Connor was one of them, we have to start using him and looking at him.

We want that demand from the group. Bardo (Bardsley) is right in the hat as well but he’d only trained for a day this week because he’d had an injection in his lower back.” – Sean Dyche

On the suspension front, Burnley will be without Josh Brownhill (£4.3m) against Watford, after he received his fifth booking of the campaign on Sunday.

GAMEWEEK 23 TALKING POINTS

ALONSO DROPPED AS TUCHEL OPTS FOR BACK FOUR

Thomas Tuchel dropped Marcos Alonso (£5.7m) for Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, with the Spaniards late cameo blocking bench points for many of his FPL owners.

Discussing his decision to switch to a 4-1-4-1 formation, the German tactician said:

“Trevoh (Chalobah) had only one training session and Andreas Christensen, a key player, was not available. For a back-three, you need three central defenders and two wings-backs.

We thought today that we could play in a 4-1-4-1 to cause them problems. The deal did well and it gives us another option so well done.”

The system change allowed the Blues’ to dominate the midfield battle against Antonio Conte’s narrow 4-4-2, with Hakim Ziyech (£7.3m) in particular thriving in the new set-up and scoring again, whilst also registerting five shots, a match-leading total.

“It was one of his best matches today because he was very reliable. It was also maybe his best position to be on the wing. We had the wide position on the right-wing, that position does not normally exist in that particular manner when we play 3-4-3, it is more of a wing-back. 

Maybe we can think about doing this. It was good because it gave him the opportunity to take risks where it was possible to take risks. He was very reliable on the ball in moments where it is necessary. 

The work rate was always outstanding. You can always rely on him on work rate and counter-pressing. So yes, well done and he needs to keep on going like everyone else.” – Thomas Tuchel on Hakim Ziyech

LIVERPOOL DOMINATE ASSIST CHARTS

In the absence of Liverpool’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) representatives, the Reds’ have now managed back-to-back wins over Brentford and Crystal Palace, scoring six and conceding just one.

Sunday’s performance at Selhurst Park was far from perfect, after starting brightly but becoming sloppy as the match wore on. However, Alisson (£6.0m) and Andrew Robertson (£7.1m) were the standout performers, with the latter registering his seventh and eighth assists of the campaign so far.

MOST FPL ASSISTS 2021/22:
Bowen12
Alexander-Arnold, Salah10
Cancelo, Robertson8

As for Liverpool, they can now look forward to the returns of Mohamed Salah (£12.7m), Sadio Mane (£11.7m) and Naby Keita (£5.0m), though it is worth noting that Liverpool’s Gameweek 24 clash against Leicester City is just four days after the AFCON final, with Egypt, Senegal and Guinea all in knockout action this week.

“You are right that we did it without them, but that made it so intense. You have to create, if you want, kind of a new football because if you don’t have that maximum speed on the wing, which obviously Sadio and Mo have, if you don’t have that all of a sudden you have to change how you get there in these areas. And the boys did really well. Ox again on the scoresheet, massive one. Diogo, not to stop more or less in a lot of situations. Bobby’s work-rate is second to none. The boys really put a proper shift in and I’m more than pleased about that.” – Jurgen Klopp on remaining unbeaten without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita

EDOUARD’S HOME FORM

Despite Crystal Palace having won only one of their last four home league games, Odsonne Edouard (£6.4m) continues to offer real value.

The former Celtic man has now produced an impressive three goals and four assists during that time, averaging nine points per match.

Goals34th=

Elsewhere, goalkeeper Vicente Guaita (£4.6m) returned in goal, replacing Jack Butland (£4.4m), ahead of a nice run of fixtures for the Eagles’, which sees them take on Norwich City (a), Brentford (a) and Burnley (h) in their next four.

JUSTIN RETURNS TO STARTING XI

After featuring as a second-half substitute against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, James Justin (£4.9m) made his first Leicester City start in nearly a year against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Lining-up on the right of a back-four, the 23-year-old featured for the full-90 minutes and largely impressed, with several surging runs into the opposition box.

Notably, amongst team-mates, only Ademola Lookman (£6.0m), James Maddison (£7.0m) and Youri Tielemans (£6.4m) received more passes in the final-third, whilst he also created two chances.

“We’re so glad to have him back, he was great. You can see in the first-half, when he was playing as that right-sided full-back, getting forward, his running was incredible. Then, he played as a third centre-half in the second half and was fantastic. He did great to get through the game.” – Brendan Rodgers on James Justin

Elsewhere, Patson Daka (£7.1m) continued his fine form with another goal, and now has five attacking returns (three goals, two assists) in his last four Premier League appearances. However, with games against Liverpool (a), West Ham United (h) and Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) up next, followed by a blank in Gameweek 27, it’s debatable just how much Fantasy attention he’ll be afforded, especially with Jamie Vardy (£10.3m) due back in March.

Meanwhile, at Brighton, Tariq Lamptey (£4.5m) is becoming increasingly difficult to own after another benching, whilst Lewis Dunk (£4.8m) featured as a substitute after a long spell on the sidelines.

DOUBLE-DIGITS FOR POPE AS BURNLEY SHOW RESILIENT SIDE

A resilient defensive showing from Burnley got their Double Gameweek off to a solid start on Sunday, as they held Arsenal to a goalless draw at the Emirates.

After a dismal defeat at Leeds United in their last Premier League game, back in Gameweek 21, the Clarets were much-improved, and despite lacking in forward areas, their defensive showing offered encouragement.

James Tarkowski (£4.9m) performed well at the back and helped himself to a couple of bonus points, but it was Nick Pope (£5.4m) who hit double-digits, with five saves and maximum bonus taking him to 10 FPL points. The Burnley stopper is certainly on the pricier side, but given how many games Burnley have in hand over others, he might just be worth a look.

It is a building block and we want to move in the right direction. We felt it was appropriate to get back to the basics, especially against teams like this when you are going to have to defend well and do it from a good shape. We worked hard and I was pleased with that. The challenge all season has been finding the big moments and we had three or four when we were in very good positions and couldn’t find the right pass or run. But you need a building block and that is another one. It gives us a nice platform to build on, the mentality today was spot on.” – Sean Dyche

Arsenal completely dominated at the Emirates, ending the match with 76% possession and 20 goal attempts, but they were blunt in attack and resorted to throwing in crosses against an organised Clarets’ outfit. As a result, it’s now four games without a goal in all competitions, with a busy schedule plus Covid and injuries clearly taking its toll on the squad.

We didn’t create that quality we needed. We are at the moment depleted and the lads have played a lot of minutes, I don’t want to make any excuses. We have time to regroup now.” – Mikel Arteta

    King (C) left for me.

    Who wins?

      Have to say rival on the last showing mate 🙁

          Always a chance for a cheeky assist or a pen though mate, goodluck

      I’m gunning for ‘team of the month’ in my main mini league. I’m 2 points down with king & Joao Pedro to go. He has king & foster.

      9 points down are some people with foster & king (C).

      So I’ll be watching Burnley v Watford hoping Burnley score & that Watford score too, but that king is only involved if it’s to assist Joao Pedro.

      That game will be a hard watch anyway but some pretty specific things need to happen.

    TAA Cancelo Rudiger
    Mount Bernardo Gray Bowen Saka
    Ronaldo King

    Steer, Keane , Livra, Scarlett

    I know my team needs an overhaul (WC). Question is should I wait for the ideal time to BB. Probably after GW30 somewhere.
    Have a feeling its better use it now because BB wont give me back the points missed up to GW30.
    I know Im not alone in this conundrum. Thoughts, mates?

    1. Black Knights
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I would (and have) WC. Both keepers, both Chelseas, both Evertons, all strikers can go. We should get announcements for 25 and 26 within this break, and we can get Salah back in without a hit too.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I would WC that.

      Only players I'd keep are TAA, Cancelo, Bowen and King.

      1. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Probably wouldn't keep King tbh but agree with everything else.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I would from a sheer lack of options and the budget price + penalties.

          1. Black Knights
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I'm looking at Broja as one (great GW 26-31 with a probable DGW25) and then probably using the other 2 striker spots to switch in and out of ~£15m DGW options, between Eduoard, Laca, Leicester, Watkins, Maupay as they become relevant.

    - If Aubameyang exits Arsenal, inclined to reject Saudi for Europe
    - 32yo training away from squad - unlikely to join Dubai trip
    - Wilshere travelling but not in line for AFC deal
    - Vlahovic doubtful but Isak among options being pursued

    1. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      7 days to sort it out. The clock is ticking...

    2. DRIZ ✅
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Missed Auba yesterday

    3. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I’m afraid that if we don’t finish in the top 4, then the man in your grav should be sacked. He was very, very fortunate to still have the job after last season and now without Europe and cups to worry about, top 4 is simply a must.

      1. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I agree with you.

        No reason for Arsenal to underachieve this year. No European distractions, one game a week.

        - Spurs gone through a manager change
        - Man United done the same and are rocky
        - Leicester have dropped off the pace
        - West Ham, looks like legs catching up with them

  4. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    In my opinion, all the planning comes down to which 2 Big Hitters you wanna have for DGW25 (If we will have it)?

    Recon it is choosing from Bruno, CR7, Salah and KDB.

    Your preferences?

    1. Pep's Money Laundry
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Salah & KDB long term but if there is a double in gw25 then Bruno over KDB for that week

      1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        You sure? City play Norwich in 25.

        1. Pep's Money Laundry
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Personally I'll be doubling up on Mahrez and Foden who I already.

          1. Pep's Money Laundry
            • 6 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            *own

          2. Dark Side Of The Loon!
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I am going with a Salah KDB Son Bowen Raph midfield.

      2. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        If KDB wasn't an option to switch in and out and you had to go Salah vs Bruno - how would you do that?

        1. Dark Side Of The Loon!
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I am completely ignoring United attack. Will go with DDG for the double.

          1. FPL Brains
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Currently - I'm with you.

    2. Qaiss
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Liverpool and Man City can’t have a DGW25 because they will play in the CL. If I had free choice, I think Ronaldo is the one to have and I’d probably go for Salah too.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I think I prefer a SGW KDB over a DGW Ronaldo...so the question is wait a week to bring Salah back and put Bruno in for the DGW, or ignore the ManU DGW?

        1. Qaiss
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Think Bruno’s points potential is reduced a lot with Ronaldo playing.

      2. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Ah, this is good to know - thank you!

        Do we presume Liverpools DGW will be the following week then?

        1. Qaiss
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Just realised City have no games in hand, so won’t have a DGW until much later in the season.

          Yep, DGW26 for Liverpool is possible given it’s one of the few midweeks available if they go all the way in the CL. I imagine Salah will have over 200%EO if it happens.

          1. FPL Brains
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Ah okay fair. Thanks mate.

            For me then I'm either sitting on missing United's DGW (from Bruno's perspective) or flipping between Salah and Bruno to capture both.

    3. Red Red Robins
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Salah and Son for me, but if from your list, Salah and KDB

      1. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Would you go Son over Kane?

        I know Son was on fire prior to his injury but Kane is passing the eye test for me.

        1. Red Red Robins
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I am doing, more from a cash perspective too.
          Front line of Watkins, Broja and 1 of Edaurd/Antonio is good enough for me.
          I like Son, Kane seems to drop too deep now

    4. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Salah and KDB for me.

  5. Deulofail
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 27 days ago

    Who to sell for Salah, Gray or Moura?
    Consider getting Digne for a hit as well?

    DDG
    TAA Cancello Reguilon Telles Dalot
    Son Moura Jota Bowen
    Dennis

    Sanchez | Gray, King, Pedro | 1FT. 8.2 ITB

    1. Cruyff's Eleven
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Laporte and Salah.

      1. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Sell Gray. Moura DGW.

      2. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Laporte's a good shout. Hard to ignore Digne at that price though as well. I can afford Coutinho for Moura either way if I'm selling Reguilon rather than Telles or Dalot. Hmmm

        1. Cruyff's Eleven
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Think Coutinho needs more time. Reading reports on his performance doesn't give me the Warm n Fuzzies

    2. Earn your Spurs
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Moura imo - with Son coming back he'll get limited minutes while Gray at least should play most games

    3. waltzingmatildas
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Hmm, Everton could come back fighting and Gray is only cheap. But, Spurs have doubles. I'd probably lose Moura.
      Who would you lose for Digne?

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks. I'm not sure who to lose, maybe Reguilon at this point if anyone.

    4. FPL Brains
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      I think that's a flip of a coin honestly.

      Spurs have Wolves and City in their next 3 right? Wolves is tough and we've seen what Spurs are like against class opposition.

      There's nothing about Everton right now either, so I don't think you're hindered either way. Would probably switch our Moura based on Gray being a definite starter.

      1. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks Brains. Leaning that way

        Moura

        Hey Deulo mate,
        (when I typed Deulo auto correct made it deluxe edition lol)
        I went Telles on my wildcard last week and now feel that I made a schoolboy error with Dalot being the better pick?

        1. Deulofail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Hey You! My deluxe opinion is that shaw is out longer-term than AWB, so Telles the better option for sure right now. I'll likely keep Dalot if there's a double but who knows if he'll play both games or even one of them? I wish I avoided both on my WC in GW19, but there's an opportunity to hold them for now.

      Hi! I missed why Coufal was substituted on Saturday.

      Was he injured or not playing well? Or not quite fit to do 90 minutes or a change of formation?

      Thanks for any info 🙂

      1. Better off with a pin and a…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        From the radio commentary and match reports there was no issue. Fredericks came on so like-for-like rather than a formation change. Possibly Moyes thinks Fredericks is a bit more solid defensively than Coufal or just wanted fresh legs to shore things up at 0-0 with around 20 minutes to go.

        I'm sure there are people who saw the game or have better intel than I do, though!

    7. waltzingmatildas

      3 months, 27 days ago

      Hey guys,
      I'm tempted to WC as defence and fwds are looking rough, but think I can save it?
      Which move would you do?
      A) Jota to Salah
      B) Alonso, Gray to Ait-Nouri, Salah (-4)
      C) Johnson to Robbo (can't afford Salah without losing KDB)

      DDG Guaita
      TAA Cancelo Alonso Lowton Johnson
      KDB Jota Raph Bowen Gray
      Antonio Dennis Pedro
      (1FT 5.9itb)

          I agree with this, therefore B out of your options.

            Yeah, B sorts out a couple of those problems.
            Guaita Johnson - will move out on wc, whenever that is.
            Pedro and Dennis - might move one to broja but not sure it's worth a hit.

              Both are a waste of time, but don't worry the majority of us have been burned by at least one of them. I'd go Broja when his fixtures turn in a few weeks.

        B or A for me

      WC staring at me with lusty eyes. Might take a week or so to decide if I should give into the seduction.

        You can feel same every week by saving WC, food for thought.

          Tbh, my team needs of a bit of a WC loving as well 😛

        Back to back GW rank of 7m+ so i've hit it. Expecting DGW announcements for 25 and 26, plus can get Mo for free.

        1. Nomar
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Exactly.

          Your own personal circumstances will determine whether you play the WC or not.

      Has Emerson fallen out of favour, no longer nailed?

      1. FPL Brains
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Looks like Conte just went for a defensive system, however if they get Adama Traore then yeah he won't be nailed at all.

      2. Red Red Robins
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Dont think Conte trusts any of his fullbacks tbh

      3. Cruyff's Eleven
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks lads, bit annoying with a DGW coming up yet Digne and Laporte being much better options...

        A transfer I could have done without.

    10. Cammick
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 27 days ago

      Ramsdale

      Taa Dier Cancelo
      Bowen Kdb Jota bilva
      Toney Dennis Watkins

      Sanchez Mount Rudi James
      (Got 2 FTs to use to sort out che/bring salah)

      Wildcard or just rely on fts?

    11. CAVEAT KING

      A testing question: Who is the best value for money forward in the game? I would love to play 5 5 0

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Idah in that case. I think he is the cheapest starter.

      2. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Value, points per mil, Its probably Dennis, then Edouard. But I havent checked.

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Maupay might be around that area also

      3. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        This season or moving forward?
        Dennis easily so far and some bought him at 5.2m

        Rest of the season I would say Broja given their fixtures and the fact he plays and he’s good

      How would you deal with the Salah Kdb Ronaldo conundrum on WC?

      A) Salah, KDB
      B) Salah, Ronaldo
      C) KDB, Ronaldo and get Salah in after GW25

      1. Baps hunter
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        A

      2. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        I would probably go C
        I have doubts over him playing all games in succession (depending on how far Egypt go). The PL games are 3 days apart then they face Inter followed by Norwich

      3. Finding Timo
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 27 days ago

        C if MU get DGW25

    13. CRAZY TRAIN

      Seeing Watkins in an awful lot of these teams. As a FF player and a Villa fan I am asking myself why?
      His work effort is without doubt but he's just not a natural finisher. Buendia or Coutinho much better picks imho.

      1. Camzy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Because there are no good forwards.

        He's one of the best options out of a bad lot that combines nailed minutes in a good team with good fixtures and potential doubles. I think he's the best forward available in the game.

        Who would you go for instead?

      2. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        yea, I have had watkins for like 4 or 5 weeks or something, I dont think he got me anything or if he did it wasnt memorable. He is gone

        Im think Buendia maybe, already have Ramsey, so only if they have a double tbh.

      3. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Lee Wat New to come. Gotta play those fixtures.
        Decide after that if he warrants a spot

        1. have you seen cyan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Ings might emerge soon, Ings wont be this redundant for long.

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            Of course. Wait n see

    14. FCSB
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 27 days ago

      DDG
      TAA Cancelo Dawson
      Jota Foden Bilva Bowen Maddison
      Ronaldo King

      Foster Dennis Livramento Alonso

      1FT, 3.0itb

      Is Bilva Ronaldo >> Salah Watkins (-4) the move??

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        When are you planning wc?
        Seems on the verge but best to hold out til after the upcoming blanks and internationals

        Salah depends on afcon progress. If he’s back it does make sense with Watkins facing Lee New Wat
        You’ve also got Alonso Livra and double Watford

        1. FCSB
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 27 days ago

          not sure yet... when do you suggest is a good time ? i'd ideally like to use it to set up for DGW and BB etc...

          I'm almost hopeful Egypt progress so i can hold off on getting Salah until GW25

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            depending on doubles next few weeks, my rough plan is FH27/WC28/FH30 and will just use BB whenever once I have a healthy bench playing.
            28 sees fixtures turn worse for United and Arsenal pick up so DDG to Ramsdale for example and Chelsea improve, though picking a reliable player is tough.
            Dennis/King to Broja if not before
            I'll lose Antonio then as well
            Son will be a good option then

            1. FCSB
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 27 days ago

              yes good plan, ill probably follow something similar depending on the DGW announcements

      Watford is such a horrible club, I wish upon them a 1000 relegations.

    16. Finding Timo

      Hi When are folk looking to WC and why? Thanks

      1. have you seen cyan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Did last week, team looked stale. I wanted sopme changes, and didnt see the point in slowly doing them over 4/5 weeks.
        Is it a good time to play it? Probably not, but I want to try make some headway now (lost alot of rank in last 2 months)

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 27 days ago

          I always like to save it til later GW but can see the benefit going early to sort out team. My team going down each week so fed up!

      2. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 27 days ago

        Gw28 for me some good fixture swings. Ditch Man U, bring in Arsenal Chelsea
        Fh27 & 30

        1. Finding Timo
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 27 days ago

          Ok cheers - be good to hold out til then but will be difficult!

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            3 months, 27 days ago

            I’m waiting to find a week I can roll ft and then attack the following week fixtures but depends on doubles.
            I’ll also just use BB at some point once I have healthy bench post wildcard

            1. Finding Timo
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 27 days ago

              Sounds good strategy
