    Cancelo still at 39.5% ownership, was he as highly owned as Trippier is now in the beginning?

    1. Catastrophe

      Surely not!

  2. El Presidente

    Already 6 digit transfers in & out.... its really mind boggling.

    1. DARE TO BISCAN

      Plenty will sort their team out on game day. Spend the rest of the week/month doing other stuff. Not that big a deal.

      Most play casually and don't really care that much.

      The sane ones.

        Business pig came up trumps, with the no nonsense Haaland cap yesterday.

        1. Piggs Boson
          • 12 Years

          I try to be balanced. I'm happy to take punts now and again, been captaining Rashford a lot over Haaland recently to good effect.

          But Haaland (WOL) was blindingly obvious, it was not the week to f around. His blanks came against tough opposition, but Wolves are a different animal.

          1. DARE TO BISCAN
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 5 Years

            Absolutely. I generally cap Haaland. Could well do Rashford this week.

    3. Fit_to_drop
      • 4 Years

      I sometimes do it, and Id be a bit more of an enthusiast than a casual player. Reason I do it is to go with my initial instinct on what my team needs. If i dont do it early, I get exposed to all the other 'chatter' during a gameweek and end up going with the 'crowd sourced' opinion or else over analysing and not seeing the simple move.

    2 FT, 0 ITB. Does the below make sense, assuming UTD DGW?

    22 - KDB -> Fernandes*
    23 - Fernandes & Andreas/Almiron -> Mahrez* & Saka*

    Will then focus on BGW25. Keeping hold of Martinelli but avoiding Nketiah just in-case Jesus comes back soon.

    Ederson
    Trippier, Schar, Shaw
    KDB, Rashford, Martinelli, Almiron
    Haaland, Kane, Toney

    (Ward, Gabriel, Andreas, Bueno)

    Cheers

      Yeah sound plan.

      1. Catastrophe
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers. Really want to upgrade Martinelli but don't think it's worth a hit.

    2. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Personally, I'm keeping Kev. Hasn't shown his best yet but he's too good to continue this mini slump in form. I think his form is reflective of City's form since the world cup, sluggish but now showing signs of returning to top level.

      Not sure Maherz is a good long term option either. There are so many options for the wide positions now while Pep has also shown in the past he likes to keep Maherz fresh to use in champions league games.

      I think Nketiah is a secure pick, pretty sure I read Jesus' knee injury is more complex than first thought and not due to return to training until March. That needs verified however, the club/Arteta are being quite coy about it.

      If it was me, I'd probably just go Andreas to Garnacho (4.2) and bank the change. Play him and bench either Almiron or Toney. Then next week maybe you'd have the funds to do Almiron and Toney to Odegaard (6.9) and Nketiah (6.6)? Both the Arsenal players will likely have risen in price by then.

      Best of luck anyway!

      1. Catastrophe
        • 13 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Cheers for such a detailed reply, much appreciated. Yeah to be honest I'm not sold on losing KDB and if I did lose him I'd definitely consider getting him back - with current form he is nowhere near justifying his price-tag, although of course I would not be surprised if that changes. Mahrez is a bit of a punt but even with rotation that price-tag is looking very appealing. I'm not interested in any of the City defenders (and even Ederson I'm not 'happy with') so it would only be Mahrez and KDB I consider anyway.

        I really like the look of Nketiah but was swayed by a few posts about Jesus' return. Hopefully will know more by 3rd Feb. I don't like the idea of Garnacho (yet), great prospect for the future but obviously minutes is the issue. I'd personally be interested to see if he could give United something extra up-top but still feels too soon.

        I looked at 3 options. Not really a fan of the hokey-cokey but C could still work, with no hits still. But I think I still prefer A as i'd prefer to keep Toney over Almiron as it stands.

        A
        GW22 - KDB -> Fernandes*
        GW23 - Almiron -> Saka*. Fernandes -> Mahrez*

        B
        GW22 - KDB -> Fernandes*
        GW23 - Toney -> Nketiah*. Andreas/Almiron -> Mahrez*

        C
        GW22 - KDB -> Fernandes*
        GW23 - Toney -> Nketiah *. Fernandes -> KDB*

          1 year, 4 months ago

          FWIW I am currently on C (although I own Mahrez already). I'm planning on the Nketiah move (in place of Mitro) for 22 as I think Everton looks a tasty one for Arsenal.

          1. Catastrophe
            • 13 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Cheers, yeah that's an option too, I could do KDB & Toney -> Fernandes & Nketiah GW22 and just Fernandes -> KDB for GW23. Although Toney has Southampton at home in 22 so good chance of a return there too. Hmm.

    1. SpaceCoyote97
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Nketiah will be getting benched once Jesus is back though.

      1. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        No need to worry about that any time soon. Out until March and likely eased in after recovering from a knee injury to prevent re-injury

        1. Eze Really?
          • 10 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Nikki is a gem and has far better goal awareness than Jesus. I think he could be the new bright spark on the block

    2. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I was hoping Trossard would push Martinelli up front while Jesus is out, but not looking likely now after Nketiah's performance yesterday...

      1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        He was very good against Spurs too, just a couple of poor first touches stopped him from scoring another brace

  4. wulfrunian
    • 7 Years

    Only for gw23.
    a)Sanchez
    b)Leno
    c)DDG

    1. SpaceCoyote97
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      Leno probably best fixture of the three.

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B

    Lol GW25, there's a good chance both of my keepers (Raya and Sanchez) are blanks.

  6. Tonyawesome69

    Good insight into Martinelli's role in the team.

    https://twitter.com/Stillmanator/status/1617442866598645761?t=vUvGUVH52bRHKurUb1QmJQ&s=19

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      It is but it won't stop people selling him. And, from the looks of it, that will be the right decision as his role is affecting his FPL output.

      1. SpaceCoyote97
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I'm staying on the Martinelli train for now. Think he has a little more long-term potential than Odegaard. Might end up getting both though.

        1. Piggs Boson
          • 12 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          I think both is the way. Both are excellent value.

          I think Trossard will be an option off the bench to ease the strain on Martinelli's legs. Arteta seems to like sticking with the same starting XI every week.

          And Martinelli getting reduced minutes might not be a bad thing, he'll be fresher and spurred on by the competition.

          1. Biggsy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            I'd probably add that, with doubles and blanks coming thick and fast, shifting between Arsenal assets feels like a luxury transfer. I'd probably prefer Odegaard over Martinelli based on current form , but no way I am shifting out an Arsenal asset with three of the top four doubling in the next 2 gameweeks and having good runs to follow.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I'm saying it won't stop folks selling as people are swayed by points and all they see is 3 blanks in a row. The post was about understanding his role in the team. He still has good underlying stats. All about predicting the next returns.

        For me, Saka and Ode may edge it over Martinelli but all 3 are good picks. I don't have the luxury of moving arsenal assets so it's essentially a hit and I don't it's worth the move.

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Yeah I think Saka and Odegaard are better but if you have Martinelli he's an easy hold.

          1. ViperStripes
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 14 Years
            1 year, 4 months ago

            Agreed I have Martinelli and its frustrating watching the points role in for the othe rArsenal assets I don't have, especially when I had Saka before the World Cup transfer amnesty.

  7. tbos83
    • 3 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Thoughts on this mess? (2ft, 0itb)

    Thinking B.Williams + Cancelo > Shaw + Saliba (assuming Dalot is fit). If Dalot still isn't fit, I might have to WC.

    Kepa
    Cancelo White Trips Dalot
    Rashford Salah Martinelli
    Mitro Haaland Kane

    Ward Eze Andreas B.Williams

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I would have thought a hit or two could sort that mess without a WC even if Dalot not fit.

      Cancelo to Shaw and Eze to Odegaard if the money works? Bench Dalot if you don't get certainty he plays both.

      Then leaves you well placed to dump Salah in 23

  8. wulfrunian
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Reading Crellin's 22/23 fpl calendar and trying to understand how many double gameweeks we could have.We will have three certain double gamweeks(29,34,37) and we might have a dgw25 and dgw26.Is that right or there is a possibility for another dgw?

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I think 25 can be a double as fixtures involving those that get postponed (involving EFL cup finalists) could be moved to mid-week, I suspect potentially that could mean a double e.g. if Brighton blank at the weekend in 25 because Newcastle are in the final, they could play Bournemouth or Palace mid-week (if the stars align) therefore meaning their opponent doubles.

      26 is just a possible spare mid-week for teams not still in Europe - looks like Ben is suggesting Liverpool Wolves might be moved there

      1. wulfrunian
        • 7 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        cheers Biggsy.That's also my understanding.

  9. Ask Yourself
    • 7 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    To help me decide which 3rd Arsenal player I get take a look at the below in the context of GW23 onwards and help pls !

    A) Saka and Mitro (NFO, bha, WOL)
    B) Nketiah and Bruno (lee, LEI, BRE)

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      I'm going B. Mainly because I think there are a lot of midfield options and based on current form Nketiah being the third asset (with a MID and DEF) looks a nice way to keep 3 Arsenal when they are storming.

    2. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Have to say B also.

      Not a fan of his but I can't deny the fact that Bruno is one of the main attackers in a very attacking United side. Ronaldo leaving ensures more attacking returns for all United forward players, particularly Bruno, with penalty responsibility back with him.

    3. Ask Yourself
      • 7 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Thanks both same as how I feel x

  10. HurriKane
    • 11 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Bruno before Ronaldo left 4 returns in 13

    Bruno after Ronaldo left 6 returns in 7

    Bruno without Ronaldo is FPL gold right? Just like his first season

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      A few of the returns (without Ronaldo) have been fortunate...

      1. FCHaalandaise
        • 1 Year
        1 year, 4 months ago

        He has been brilliant though.

        Not sure what his stats say however.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          1 year, 4 months ago

          Not saying he hasn't played well since the restart. OP is using returns to justify the pick and I'm suggesting more context is required.

    2. FCHaalandaise
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes. I may Tc him dgw22 if it goes ahead

    3. Qaiss
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yeah, he was a beast FPL wise but was quite lucky at times.

      Will never forget when I had a dream that he got a goal and assist against Brighton, so I captained him and a few hours later, he got an assist and then a penalty after the final whistle to haul.

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      He's been OK, as said above he's certainly had fortunate returns (including his last 2). Before yesterday's game Eriksen had just as many returns in the last 6. He's nowhere near the level he was at under Solskjaer in his first year at the club so I'm actually not completely sure if I'll be getting him this week or not

  11. I Member
    • 8 Years
    1 year, 4 months ago

    Probably going to end up benching Kane if Martial is fit. Anybody else in a similar situation?

    KDB, Rashford, Odegaard, Martinelli, Mitoma
    Haaland, Martial

    1. FCHaalandaise
      • 1 Year
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Kane will score v City

      Does often

    2. Down with this sort of thin…
      • 6 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Probably bench Mitoma ahead of Kane personally.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        Not benching him for Bournemouth at home. If Kane punishes me so be it.

    3. putana
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      bench martial he wont play more than 90 minutes combined. if he is fit it will be 60 then 30 next game

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        1 year, 4 months ago

        I prefer 90 minutes against Palace/Leeds than 90 minutes against Man City.

    4. Arteta
      • 8 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Yes.

      Fernandes (c) Rashford Saka Martinelli Mitoma
      Haaland Nketiah (Kane)

    isnt arsenal the type of team Pep wouldnt want to start kdb against?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      1 year, 4 months ago

      Pep has generally shown he will start Alvarez over KDB when up against low blocks/ 5 defenders and have most of the possession. To me, Arsenal game doesn't suggest Alvarez will start ahead of KDB.

    I've got Salah and 8 others for 32. Not a great team but ok. Convince me why I should FH. I reckon 34 is a better bet. I think this week is low scoring.
