    Yay or nay?
    Robbo, Havertz & Pukki > Laporte, Diaz & Richarlison

    1. SuperDan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      (-4)

    2. 1966
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If it wasn't for Laporte playing 120 mins I would've said yes but he's played a lot of games and if Stones comes back, is there a risk Laporte is rested?

  2. Fergymac
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Any news on Walker? If injured Zinchenko surely a good cheap route into City defence

    1. Zero
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      But a slightly weakened, slightly tired defence - and Zinchenko isn't very attacking either.

      Not one for me imo

      1. Bollard
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Really - i think Zinchenko has been playing really well with a few assists. I think he is overlooked

    2. Eleven Hag
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ake has also played there recently?

    3. Ⓙⓐⓡⓥⓘⓢⓗ
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      The game was only last night, so possibly a bit early with travelling back etc, I imagine the presser is tomorrow.

    4. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Both Ake and Laporte can play at LB, as well as Cancelo of course who has played there for the majority of the season. If Stones is back he can play RB freeing Cancelo up for that role. It might work out but I think you'd be depending on a few too many things combining.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Ake will play LB at least one of the games.

  3. MannionUK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Worth doing for -4 then FH in 37?

    Kane + Havertz -> KDB (c) + Jesus

    Ramsdale
    Davies, James, Robertson
    Havertz, Ramsey, Salah, Coutinho, Mount
    Kane, Watkins

    Dubravka, Mateta, Holgate, Doherty

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Would want to keep Kane for this double. Would go Havertz to Foden.

  4. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    So I recon not worth getting Foden, only KDB an option? Mahrez?

    1. Rassi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I think Foden might still start both. Jesus also an option.

  5. gellinmagellan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    2 FT 0.1 ITB. Will use BB. What should I do here?

    Pope* Dub
    TAA James Alonso Cash Schar*
    Salah Saka Kulu Havertz Ramsey
    Kane Pukki Broja*

    * Single GW players

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Broja to Nketiah. Havertz to Foden or Mahrez

  6. Eleven Hag
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Would you sell either Madison or Mount to get Mahrez?

    1. Corgz Dark side of the Loon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Yes I would......

    2. cutch
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Wait for the game against Roma this evening. If Leicester go through, Maddison will be a bigger rotation risk than Mount. If not, the other way around.

  7. dshv
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Havertz or Foden ??

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      havertz

    2. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Hav

  8. Silecro
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    I'm trailing some 80ish points in my ML so probably need to take some differential captain instead of Salah. Which one would be the best candidate out of those?

    A) Cancelo
    B) Watkins/Coutinho
    C) Richarlison
    D) Saka
    E) Trent

    1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      saka

      1. Lingard’s Shin Guards
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        or cancelo

    2. CRAZY TRAIN
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Need to go leftfield to give you a chance of making up those points - so Rich

    3. FourLokoLeipzig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Rich

  9. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    People seem turned off KDB (c) after last night, but surely this makes him more essential.

    - Almost certain to play full or close to full minutes in the double.

    - Only the title to play for now.

    - City could go on to smash Newcastle and Wolves on the back of an embarrassing elimination.

    - Still relatively low owned.

    1. Corgz Dark side of the Loon
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Clearly carrying a knock....and looked out of it yesterday

    2. ViperStripes
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Agreed surely they'll want to hammer the last few teams to a) make up for the embarrasing loss last night and b) title could come down to goal difference and current GD is so close.

    3. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Gotta factor in the mental aspect of losing a game like that also, alot of more added pressure now to win the league. Shall be intresting to see how they react

    4. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I seriously don't know what to do anymore. Mahrez and Jesus are exciting options as well, but we also need at least one of their defenders too.

    5. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Him getting taken off was more because he didn't look fully fit. That is the more worrying part. It doesn't matter if he gets rested if he's not fit enough to start and play two games in 3 days.

    6. CRAZY TRAIN
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      He didn't look on top of his game last night. I was considering switching Son out for him but decided against.

    7. DF Team
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      You never know with Guardiola, and KDB may recover fast, but yesterday he seemed he needed a rest!

  10. Pukkipartyy
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Diaz or Foden?

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Would go Foden. Both may only play 1 but City on paper have easier fixtures.

  11. MShalkz
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Thoughts on this FH36?

    Pickford
    Trent, Cancelo, Laporte
    KDB, Son, Salah, Saka, Gordon
    Richarlison, Nketiah

    Subs: Steele, Tsimikas, Ben Johnson, Young Coombes

    Far too tempted to get Luis Diaz in but not sure how to do it without the rest of the team suffering....

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Playing around with Drafts and had this but Alonso over Nketiah. Can't decide if KDB is worth it or have Mahrez or Foden with VVD/Robertson or even Maddison over playing Gordon.

  12. Silecro
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Anyone fancy Cancelo captain? I'm leaning more and more into it.
    Chasing my ML of course

    1. BERGKOP
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      If chasing, why not.

  13. dshv
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    BB36 FH37 .. trying to hit 10k

    Casper Foster
    Taa Robbo Alonso Cancelo Cash
    Son Salah Kulusevski Havertz Mount
    Dennis Nketiah Pukki

    0.6itb 2FT. ..

    Change something here!!!

    1. BERGKOP
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Give us your thinking.

      1. dshv
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thinking 3 of chelsea is too much.. need city up front and also don’t know how to fit the only idea which i have is havertz to foden but after 120 minutes last night .. not sure.

  14. RealSocialDads
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    I have a couple options with 2 FT on BB, will FH37 so is effectively only for 36 and 38.

    A. Mount + Mateta -> Saka + Nketiah
    B. KDH + Mateta -> Gordon + Nketiah

    Team is:

    Schmeichel Foster
    TAA Cancelo Alonso Davies Cash
    Son Salah Mount Foden KDH
    Dennis Pukki Mateta

    Would really appreciate any suggestions, chasing so would be tempted to punt

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A

  15. jia you
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Locked & Loaded, GL for the GW all....bench order correct?

    Schmeichel
    Cancelo Trent Rob James Alonso
    KdB Gordon
    Kane Watkins Richarlison
    (Foster Kulu Coutinho KDH)

    1. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Great squad. Are you bench boosting?

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        asking for bench order, so...

      2. jia you
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        No just ended up with a full squad of DGWer plus I got rid of Pukki and Odegaard with my transfers lol

        1. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          My bad, I read to quickly while scrolling through the phone. I probably wouldn't change anything fwiw, even though Robertson and James might only play once.

          1. jia you
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 13 days ago

            my thoughts exactly risky leaving those WBs out even if only getting one game...cheers

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I'd be tempted to play Kulu over one of the Chelsea boys personally, he could end up against Tsimikas / a Robbo in need of a rest followed by Tavares in one week

      1. jia you
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah he's the one that I'm tempted to start, even over Robbo perhaps although that could be painful if these attacking WBs haul

  16. Gazwaz80
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Is Lack’a’zest going at the end of the season?

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Certainly seems that way, his interview from a few weeks ago seemed to coincide with him being dropped

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Cheers ND

  17. DavvaMC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Not sure what route to go if any?

    A. Robbo > Matip (free up funds for below)

    B. Mount > Mahrez
    C. Mount > Fodden
    D. Pukki > Jesus

    Many thanks

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Would do D looks the best upgrade

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        I would also have to do A, Robbo > Matip, still worth it?

        1. Bucket Man
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          Tough one. Can see Robbo only playing one does Matip play both league games?

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          3 months, 13 days ago

          I think A is okay too.

    2. MyNameIsRedro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I don’t think I’d do any of those mate, sorry (D looks good but not sure it’s worth doing A to facilitate)

      1. DavvaMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Thanks, maybe Mount > Foden or Mount > Mahrez

  18. Atimis
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    0.1 short to do Sterling Havertz Pukki to Son Mahrez Nketiah...f my fpl life

    1. Holmes
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      blessing in disguise

      mahrez and nketiah are meh

      1. Atimis

        Really lost the plot what to do this week

  19. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    But is it all luck or judgement?

    Entered in gw28 with a massive 214 points and set the BB threshold out of nowhere.

    https://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/9024690/history

    Took a few weeks off but isn't afraid to take a hit or two!

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Mr Hamdy is pretty handy.

      Or did he just get lucky? Hope he enjoyed his winnings.

      1. Holmes
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        lucky I would say

        sometime I feel that FPL just creates theses kind of teams on their own to avoid giving any prizes. Nobody is going to cross check on whether that person received the prize or not (or that person is fake or real)

  20. drughi
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Cant decide between these moves

    A. Weghorst>Richarlison
    B. Coady>Alonso
    C. Weghorst, Coady and Sa> nkethia, Cancelo and Pickford -8

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      B might be good as Burnley have double GW next week

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah could be but weghorst is just so bad

    2. MyNameIsRedro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Is Coady bench fodder if you keep him? I’d say A if so

      1. drughi
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Yeah he is on the bench for the rest of the season

  21. MyNameIsRedro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    3 months, 13 days ago

    What looks better please? For 36 & 38 only

    A) Robbo, KDB, Nketiah

    B) 4.5 defender (could switch formation and play Gordon instead of), Mahrez, Kane

    Would captain Salah regardless of A/B

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      A

  22. NateDog
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Think I'm just going to keep James at this point. Not confident of anything but 1 start and maybe not even a bench appearance in the other tie and I don't even expect a CS, but pretty much all the replacements I'm looking at are probably only going to play once too

    1. MyNameIsRedro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 13 days ago

      Haha yeah I’m keeping too. I look at half my side and think any of them could play just once and so could their replacements. Only going to make changes based on whether I’d still make them if I assumed equal gametime (at which points transfers like Robbo/James to Laporte become a no-go)

    2. drughi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      I mean if he starts against wolves you gotta think there could be a decent return and a 25 minute sub apperance against leeds is okay

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 13 days ago

        Could have thought they'd be a decent return in a few of the recent games too....

  23. House Frey Wedding Planner
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 13 days ago

    Who to drop for KDB..

    A - Havertz
    B - Mount
    C - Barnes

    Will FH37

    1. Bucket Man
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 13 days ago

      C. His place in the team looks most at risk. Havertz and Mount more nailed I'd say.

      Probably one of the CBs but so hard to predict.

      Tough with so much variation. Don't rate Pickford's chances depsite opposition and also don't like D. Think I prefer B over C.

        Thanks. Prefer Kasper as well. If I went for KDB it would be D I think but it’s just guessing who plays more minutes for City. I expect Robertson to get a rest too but he has a lot of stacking poteintial

    Broja, Gelhart & Barnes to Richarlison, Dennis and Gordon for a -8 gives a BB of:

    Schmeichel, Foster
    Trent, James, White, Cancelo, Laporte
    Salah, Gordon, Coutinho, Saka, Martinelli
    Kane, Richarlison, Dennis

    Look good?

      Was going to suggest Nketiah but you already have 3 Arsenal

      Looks good for BB
