      I spent a long time on those lyrics. A repost will come at some point, brace yourself.

    Bruno G doesn't get a mention. I'd be interested to see if Tonali starts in midfield, will Bruno play higher and be good for assists.

    1. Tomerick
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      The mids share the points too much for me. It’s Tripps and Wilson on my radar.

      There'll be a Tonali Scout Report, after he signs, which will deal with Bruno G - but if The Athletic are right (they usually are), Bruno is staying as a 6: https://theathletic.com/4631676/2023/06/23/tonali-newcastle-transfer/

    The scout writers who are ardent Newcastle fans not realising that Wilson would start both games of a double gameweek stopped me from salvaging my season.

    Never forgive. Never forget.

    1. Tomerick
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      If it makes you feel any better, I captained Wilson.

        Why did you go against the firm advice from scout out of interest?

        1. Tomerick
          • 9 Years

          I like to keep the cogs whirring by exercising independent thought.

              Why indeed? I don’t and wouldn’t because this is what is supposed to be a fun, free game.

            Is this a new chip for next season? Where are you getting your inside knowledge from?

      It didn't matter whether he started or not. His record when coming on as a sub was so impressive that he was still the best captaincy choice even if he only played one and a half matches (unless you already owned Isak and didn't want to double up on the Newcastle attack or make a sideways move).

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Why didn't this filter through to the editorial team at the time?

        He really is a massive try hard trolling irritant. Surely no one can be this pathetic.

    Trippier was the first player i've ever had in my GW1 and kept all season.

    Hard to see him not on my GW1 team again

    1. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I only took him out for FH34, does that count as having him all season?

    2. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I'll have him at 6.0 or less. He didn't do too great towards the end of last season

    3. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      First 5 fixtures are tough. I'm open to going without. Not ruling out a WC GW5/6 if needs be...

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        My plan also. I doubt I'll WC much later than GW6 so will likely avoid Newcastle defence initially with those fixtures

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I'll start without him because of the fixtures

    5. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I tend to feel the same way. Fixtures could still put me off if he's too expensive though.

  6. Piggs Boson
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 28 days ago

    Wilson's numbers are exceptional. If he's looking nailed, he's must for me GW5/6 onwards.

    1. Tomerick
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Fitness is the only concern when it comes to Wilson.

      1. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        He's the kind of player that's worth the hokey cokey.

        1. Tomerick
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          Absolutely. I’m all in on the Wilson fan club

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      One of the reasons I really like Jesus as a pick. Can get to Wilson (or Nkunku if he's listed as a forward) in one move.

  7. Piggs Boson
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 28 days ago

    That Chelsea midfield has been completely gutted. Kante, Kovacic, Mount all gone. Enzo is the only midfielder with the right level of quality. I like the look of Chukwuemeka, but he's still early in his development. Chelsea are definitely a no go in their current state.

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      I expect them to sign Caicedo. It may take some time for Poch to gel everything together but this would be a strong lineup:

      Kepa
      James, Fofana, Badiashile, Chilwell
      Caicedo, Fernandez
      Madueke, Nkunku, Sterling
      Jackson

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        They'll probably sign another striker. Colwill, Chukwuemeka and Mudryk there as well.

      2. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Keep forgetting about Nkunku. Caicedo would certainly change things. Perfect partner for Enzo.

        Is Jackson likely to be first choice? He gave me the impression of a backup.

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          I reckon he's backup too. Think they'll throw big money at someone like Osimhen or Vlahovic.

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 28 days ago

            No, not Vlahovic!

        • 3 Years

        Crazy the've spent so much and that's the best lineup.

        Need a new kepa asap.

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 28 days ago

          Yeah I guess but it's very much a squad built for the future. Lots of young players there.

    2. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Caicedo is joining I reckon, him and Enzo in double DM could potentially mean some clean sheets.

    Newcastle's green (KSA cough) strip bumped up from third kit to away kit.
    Maybe a few years of that and then they'll test the water with a green and white home kit, doing away with the black and white stripes.
    Sportswashing is a slow and steady process.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      Agree, however being completely unbiased it is actually quite a decent looking kit.

      1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Oh yeah I rate it.
        Unlike Liverpool's which could be the worst away kit two years running. 1995's kit was a standing joke, so let's remake it but make it cause a migraine when you look at it, like last year's kit.

    There seems to be a mass mobilisation of 'content creators' by FPL on Monday at 1pm - so I'm guessing player prices/game tweaks/game launch are coming then:

      Looks like they've given the "exclusive" to all of the biggest twonks in FPL Twitter, so I'd consider it a compliment you haven't been included.

      1. FPL Virgin
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years

        Once again, the FPL community has been split into the privileged few and the rest of us. It's like a Tory land utopia.

    Someone leak the 1pm reveal, please and thank you. Need to know if I should care 😆

    If a pay to be a member is there functionality to block certain users so I don’t see their posts?

    1. Hazz

      • 6 Years

      As a genuine ask, this is something I would quite like. It can get toxic and I'd rather just block a user. (And they can block me too!)

        That’s a shame. Hopefully it’s listed as a future requirement.

    Are we expecting major changes to the game this season?

    Hope not - like the game the way it is - nice and simple and pretty user friendly

    Maybe a tweak to the chips - but please no major overhaul

    1. Zimo
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 28 days ago

      It's probably a new mode like draft. No changes. And the thing on Monday is team prices reveal. I think like 20 content creators are teaming up with fpl so they'll release one team price each on the stream most likely.

      1. Flynny
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 28 days ago

        Ah thats cool. So a lot of fuss about not a lot then

        Like Draft, doubt any spin off will prove particularly popular with most focusing on the main game

      2. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 27 days ago

        Think it would be a bit bigger than that for all the fuss and relevant to the main game. I played draft for the first time last season and loved it, but it's very niche.

    2. noquarternt
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 26 days ago

      Surely a spin off version, 5 aside weekly game?

      They talk about it being used to engage people more so think weekly is the way they keep more interested for longer.
