    Off topic but anyone have an idea what’s happening with the Ivan Toney case ?
    Expecting a verdict before the Pl resumes …

    Moroccan hopes of becoming the first African nation to reach the World Cup final have ended in despair after their side lost 2-0 to France.

    Supporters gathered across Morocco, in Europe, and in the host nation Qatar were hoping they could overcome their former colonial rulers.

    But it was not to be with goals from Theo Hernandez and Kylian Mbappe seeing the world champions into the final.

      Atleast they didn't say Harry Kane, who I have heard was claiming the second goal 😉

        😀 😀

    Nketiah or Alvarez?

    1. Scheister
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Guessing Nketiah will get more starts

  4. Scheister
    • 11 Years

    Think Kepa is still first choice once fit??

    1. drippingpitch
      • 2 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      I would say so...Mendy didn't stand out at WC

    Totally forgot about FPL 😀

    Any thoughts on this team?

    De Gea - Ward
    Cancelo - Gabriel - Trippier - Bueno - B.Williams
    Salah - Foden - Maddison - Almiron - Summerville
    Haaland - Darwin - Mitro

    0 ITB

    1. Drop Dead Tsimikas
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      De Gea can become Kepa and B.Will can become a playing defender.

      1. NATSTER
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        It’s festive season when the busy fixtures. I think you need a playing bench.

  6. HurriKane
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 5 months ago

    Should we take the risk on Foden once again?

    Take away the 3 surprise benching's in a row and Foden has been involved in 11 goals in 11 pl starts. (7g 4a)

    I'm just afraid about pep roulette

      King on the Pine Throne! Of course you should.

    2. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      No.

    3. Karan14
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Lot of other options around that price like Martinelli, Saka, Kulu, Rashford

      1. NATSTER
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Thinking this.

    4. Mirror Man
        1 year, 5 months ago

        For equality reasons I must have at least one troll in my fpl team. This time it's the turn of young Philpot.

    5. tibollom
      • 7 Years

      hows this draft looking guys?

      Kepa Ward
      White Dalot Cancelo Trippier Neco
      Salah Rash Saka/Kulu Almiron andreas
      mitro haaland darwin

      1. Karan14
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Probably the template team to start with

        1. tibollom
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          yea think so.. tempted with Kulu but hard to go without saka..

          1. Karan14
            • 8 Years
            1 year, 5 months ago

            Tough one between Martinelli & Rash too.
            Im probably leaning towards Saka over Kulu/Foden.

      2. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Looks good. Maybe Patterson for Neco?

        1. tibollom
          • 7 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          is patterson nailed?

    6. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Is it worth going threemium, if you have a high-ish team value?

      Kepa Ward
      Cancelo Trippier White Daot Patterson
      Salah Saka/Kulu Martinelli Almiron Andreas
      Haaland Kane Mitro

      Is Kane + Mart/Rash better than say Darwin + 8x mid?

      1. Sandy Ravage
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Add KDB and make it a quadrimium

        1. ryskal
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          I think you got a little confused in the ff nomenclature. I believe we are talking "fourmium".

    7. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      too risky to go with ward and iversen? reckon leicester are going to sign a keeper? cheers.

    8. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Am I wrong in believing Cancelo is not a must?

      I prefer having the budget for both Saka, Kulu, Almiron, Kane and Haaland by saving up in defense. I think Akanji can cover.

      1. Sandy Ravage
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        No, prefer Akanji or Foden

        1. Pepeye
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Akanji is not a shoe in, he's likely playing in Carabou or FA Cups Stones/Laporte will be PL central defenders

      2. NATSTER
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Not so impressed with his FPL points and underlying stats are so so as well.

        Akanji looks good. Just worried about City CBs are all fit and having some form. Rotation look inevitable somehow.

    9. Prinzhorn
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      This feels good to me:

      Kepa - Ward
      Trippier - Gabriel - Dalot - Akanji - Patterson
      Kulusevski - Almiron - Foden - Saka - Andreas
      Haaland - Kane - Toney

      3.0 ITB

    10. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 5 months ago

      Seeing a lot of Ankaji in teams. Is he expected to be in the starting 11 regularly?

      1. Prinzhorn
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        He played nearly everything pre-WC didn’t he? Expect him to remain quite nailed and Dias/Laporte/Ake rotating

      2. Botman and Robben
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        Almost time for a FPL comeback!

      3. Mirror Man
          1 year, 5 months ago

          People are either being too loose with their personal belongings or haven't read the memo.

        • The Mentaculus

          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          He was starting to look quite nailed pre-WC, getting picked ahead of Dias consistently as well as filling in at RB. If I were to get a City CB it probably would be him. But with those 5 CBs fit & available, I'm still not convinced that any of them will be reliable for starting both games in the DGWs. Would be classic Pep to suddenly decide he likes a different CB pairing & bench Akanji for a while. This is why I find Ederson quite appealing as a Cancelo non-owner

      4. Woyofthewovers66
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I have spent some time messing around and think I may have settled on this for the restart:

        Kepa / Ward
        Cancelo Trippier James / Saliba / cas

        1. Woyofthewovers66
          • 5 Years

          POSTING FAIL (see below for full post - thanks)

      5. Woyofthewovers66
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 5 months ago

        I have spent some time messing around and think I may have settled on this for the restart:

        Kepa Ward
        Cancelo Trip James Saliba Castagne
        Salah martinelli kulu rashford andreas
        Haaland darwin mitro

        I like the flexibility it provides and possibility of a bench boost without any real prep, and also key players at most teams who are also attacking.

        Thoughts? Pitfalls?

        1. Woyofthewovers66
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Plan rashford & Darwin to Almiron & Kane at some point

        Nathan Ake has impressed for City, Stones Laporte Ake Dias Akanji in that order for PL selection

        1. The Knights Template
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 5 months ago

          Akanji Dias Ake Laporte Stones will be the order based on impressive performances.

              Reads like a New York based pickpocketing outfit. Just missing a Lefty and a Charles.

              Can't see Akanji being bottom of the list as it stands. He's played the majority of games and Pep seems to like him (can change v quickly though)

            Looks like Messi leads the Golden Boot race if assists are the deciding factor...

                Morning all,

                Just starting to have a look at a potential draft and have the below, what do you think? Obvious thing is dependent on if James is fit or not

                Kepa / Ward
                Cancelo / Trippier / Gabriel / James / Botman
                Rashford / Kulusevski / Salah / Martinelli / Andreas
                Wilson / Mitrovic / Haaland

                    You should be pleased with yourself. So much so that you'd be forgiven for having a slice of cake for breakfast.

                  In which GW do we get our second wildcard?

                    So we have a choice of filthy cheating Argentina or boring France to win the WC.

                    If France win they've won 3 world cups in the last 24 years and got to a final also. Most successful nation of recent times.

                    Makes Kane bottling that penalty even more painful. Should have been us. Put him in jail.

                      Which one would you rather start with?

                      A) Kane, Rashford, James
                      B) Mitro, Kulu, Cancelo

                        Hard to answer until there is more clarity on who will be playing.
