    An absolute bps rollercoaster if I've ever seen one

    Quadruple talks less than 24 hours ago to City being potential Champions next Sunday, that was quick!

    65-8 points with 15 to go. No great, not terrible.

      That's good. 56 with 16 to go for me

    4. RedRo

      That’s really good mate, well done

      That's great! I'm on 60 with 15 to go

    7. teneighty

      59 with 15 to go. Really happy so far.

    8. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Didn’t want to come off as a knob. 57/15 = 3,8 ppp which isn’t bad but I was hoping for more. Barely moved on OR.

    9. Karhumies
      • 10 Years

      58 with 11 to go on FH. Would have +8 more if I had chosen Laporte instead of Dias. Seems like FH36 is roughly on par with BB36.

      My GW35 team is on 28. Cancelo only one with returns and Chelsea had some 1 pointers.

    Solid outing for KDB(c)

  6. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Pep rested KDB at the Bernabeu to play 90 minutes there...

    1. Well you know, Triffic
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      What about Mahrez?

      1. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Just Pepping 😆

        Key vs Wolves' low block!

    2. Andy_Social
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Didn't exactly exert himself though

  7. Salan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Only an assist and got yellow card in a CS match. KDB still has 2 bps.

    It's something wrong in this bps system.

    1. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      You can get a yellow and still amass 2nd most points in the match. Yellow is only -4 bps i believe

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      I wasn't even watching the game and all I could see on BBC and here were mentions of KDB setting up chances

    3. Gandalf
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      It seems harsh for him to be punished for everyone wasting the chances he creates. Seems fair to me to be rewarded via bps

    4. No Need
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Chances created lots of baps

    5. SouthCoastSaint
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Did you watch the game?

      How many bonus did he get purely from a million short passes.

      Easy man of the match

    24 points all out for the first half of the DGW. Can't get much worse so roll on the rest of this s***show.

      Everyone has cancelo and the players who haul’s big have tiny ownership, really not a big deal

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    2. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Yeah. I did 16 points to 0 points for a hit.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Haha! That’s impressive! Nightmare mate but Sterling had to go

  11. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    What happened to zinc he was on 36 bps then it was removed?

    1. Deulofail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      The assist was removed

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        It wasn’t legit ?

        1. Well you know, Triffic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          It'll be readded

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Should come back again I guess. He had the penultimate touch for sure

        3. NateDog
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 28 days ago

          BBC said it was a shot going wide that Foden put in, not sure on FPL rules would have thought it was still an assist?

          1. Deulofail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            Yep. Re-added now

  12. JJO

  13. Andy_Social

    3 point lead, +4 better GD. Title really is City's now.

    1. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 28 days ago

      A 2-goal loss and Liverpool 2-goal win means it can still change hands

      1. Van der Faart
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Dont see City losing, let alone by 2 goals tbh.

        1. Inazuma X1
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          They'll lose v West Ham though

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 28 days ago

            They definitely won't

      Biggest props to Sterling holders. Couldn't face it myself after the last 2 weeks.

    Pep is the devil. Sterling to Mahrez(-4). Still 61(-4) not to bad.

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      It costs 20 f pts

  17. Well you know, Triffic
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    Does Mahrez even start the next game?

    Sterling will keep his place
    Foden will come back in
    Bilva may return?

    1. Inazuma X1
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      He'll bench KDB

      1. Shineonme
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        No chance

    2. Rainer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Rodri
      KDB Bernardo
      Mahrez Foden Sterling

      3rd attacker hard to call.

    3. Collie01
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Who knows with Pep. He should start, but who knows!

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 28 days ago

    What's the story with BPS?

    Zinch was on 23bps before they added the assist. An assist is 9bps.
    23+9=32 yet they've give him 36bps.

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Big chance?

    2. TheSteel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      He did other things like complete passes, clear balls etc

      1. gooberman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        No. The assist was added but at full time was removed for some reason. His bps score was 23 at full time as I checked. They add the assist back and now he is on 36bps. Should only be 32

    3. gooberman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      Came here to post exactly the same. Just beyond annoying. Its cost my team 3pts!

    Did say Sterling was a great (c) pick

    1. ThisTimeNxtYrRodney
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 28 days ago

      My first good captain choice for a few weeks. This baps calculation is crazy. Laporte scores a goal, keeps a cleanie but KDB (who has a yellow as well) is in front of him in the baps.
      If this is how it ends up it needs looking at.

  21. ToffeePot
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 28 days ago

    such a crazy team city...Cancelo CS and assist no bap, laporte CS and goal no bap
    not complaining, no I am!

      Hopfeully Sterling is back on the bench vs Wolves. Where he belongs.

    • JONALDINHO
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How does Laporte score a goal and get a cleanie yet end up with 0 baps

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        He missed a huge chance early on in the game

      2. Deulofail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        He got 33. Quite a lot. Pretty close to the bonus point zone, especially considering the number of goals

      3. Rainer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Sterling 2.
        Zinchenko CS, assist & chances.
        KDB BAP beast.

        Laporte missed a big chance from a KDB corner early on, that cost him.

      4. putana
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        kdb has to be given bps for some reason. An assist in a 5-0 win and is a head of two defenders with attacking returns

        1. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Corrupt system

        2. El Presidente
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 28 days ago

          Plus a yellow card!!! If it wasn't for that he would be even higher.

      5. yousunkmybattleship
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        Not sure if you noticed but there were 5 goals

      6. Fintroy
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 28 days ago

        because irresepective of what KDB does in a game he get baps (1 assist and a yellow in a 5-0 win) - pathetic.....
