    1. Yome

      1. marcos11
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Nah have zero zero itb, just one FT which l need to burn as I’m FHing next week

    2. Two footed

      1. Two footed
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Just noticed that of my 12 squad players who play. I have 2 City, 2 Liverpool, 2 Spurs, 2 Arsenal, 2 Chelsea and 2 Norwich. There's so much beauty in the world sometimes.

  12. Muscout
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Chasing so (C):
    A) Cancelo
    B) Maddison
    C) Nacho

    1. DF
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      A

    2. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I went for Cancelo as expect min 16-20pts return

      1. Salah and Vinagre Chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I could rediscover prayer for that.

    3. Salah and Vinagre Chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I'm going Cancelo (C) for same reason.

  13. Gazza2000
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Dias or Laporte?

    1. ItsJonesy
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I've gone Dias.

  14. Gazwaz80
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Leading my mini (money) league by 6 points but I’ve gone extremely high risk this week. Took out Kane, Kulu & Watkins for Kev, Nketiah and Jesus, also have Robbo, James & Mount so could be a very interesting week 🙂

    1. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Fascinating

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Haha, sarcasm is the highest form of wit 😀

    2. Salah and Vinagre Chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Taking the old curse (may you live in interesting times) seriously, then.

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Haha, absolutely, one of my favourite sayings, that I think is of Chinese origin…

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        I have Kasper, ALonso,Cancelo,Jesus where you have Dias,MAtip and Rich

          Salah, KDB, Son, Saka, Gordon

  16. winchester

    + Targett -> cash for a hit (-4)

    1. Mr. O'Connell hates DG…
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Broja, Weghorst, Ramsey, Target > Nketiah, Pukki, Gordon, Tavares.

      Should at least give you a decent BB.

      1. winchester
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Really? Is it that bad currently? Cant afford a -8..

      2. winchester
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 1 day ago

        How about targett+ramsey+weghorst -> digne+gordon+pukki (-4)?

  17. MikeS

    A. Ramsey to Saka -4
    B. Werner and coutinho to kdb (c) nketiah -8

  18. YuvalFPL
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2 months, 1 day ago

    What are Ben White owners doing? Do we think he starts?

    1. Feed tha Sheep
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Think he will (guess work)

      1. YuvalFPL
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        me too, Arteta said he needs to get through the training session to be involved which was Friday. Fingers crossed he made it through and has today to rest as a bonus.

    2. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      If he has trained, he will. We need to track down the training pics..

    3. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      White > Matip (-4) done

  19. Gazwaz80
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Any early Chelsea team news?

    1. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes, they’re all benched.

      All of’em

    2. Salah and Vinagre Chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes, the team was bought by Boehly at 3am UK time. Really early news.

      1. Gazwaz80
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks for your insight chaps 😀

  20. D15jones
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Thoughts on this -8?
    Saint maximin, Coady and Konsa to Nketiah, Laporte and Tavares

  21. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Chasing. Who do I captain? On Trent at the moment or is that silly?

    Ramsdale
    VVD - TAA - Holgate
    Coutinho - Saka - Son - Salah - Mount
    Richarlison - Dennis

    Sánchez - Royal - White - Mateta

  22. Calum Undisputed
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    No FH37

    1. white to tavares
    2. white to holgate

    1. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I don’t think Tavares will start the Spurs game. He play Cedric in the left or even Saka I reckon.

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        Cedric is crap defensively too (plus less of a natural LB) and why would you put your best attacker at LB.

  23. Futureform
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Holgate nailedness.

    Is it likely that he starts both games?

  24. Junks
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    2 months, 1 day ago

    On FH and chasing big time. Balls out right??

    Pickford
    Alonso Robbo Cancelo Mina
    Salah Diaz KDB Mahrez Kulu
    Nketiah

    Yay or Nay?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yeah perfect balance of punty/safe for FH I reckon. Good job!

      1. Junks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Thanks. GL

  25. RyanMK
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years

    Kulu or Richarlison?

    1. Rod Liddle's Young One
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Kulu

  26. Rod Liddle's Young One
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Martinelli or Gordon?

    1. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Martinelli for me but most will say Gordon

    2. Mr Arsenal
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Gordon.

      Martinelli won’t start against Leeds but more likely against Spurs.

      Gordon will play both and is on set pieces

    3. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Gordon

  27. smix
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Robbo is expected to be rested ? Move him out to TAA on FT ?

    1. Yome
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I took him out for a hit, he will be rested against villa

    2. DF
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yep

  28. claretdownunder
    • 11 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Robbo or Robbo to TAA for -4 thanks

    1. Yome
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      Yes go for TAA

    2. Gazza2000
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      No keep Robbo

    3. FPL_ UP_Down
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I think it’s payback for TAA owners!

  29. MARVELLUS
    • 12 Years
    2 months, 1 day ago

    Two to start:

    A) Matip Alonso

    1. Yome

      Yes

    2. No Need
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 1 day ago
