    Why aren't more people on Pedro Porro? He's ridiculous value. 3G 3A in a third of the season. Spurs should be more stable and solid, and he's nailed on that RB (playing more RWB, RW really) spot.

    Also think people are sleeping on Maddison and Foden. For 7.5, both reaching their prime.. No brainers.

      For me, Porro very much does not fit into Posty's system. Posty uses fullbacks and wingers, not wingbacks. Not even sure if Porro will start over Emerson.

        Agree with this. Very much not nailed.

      Is he nailed? We don't know anything yet.

      I mean that was under a different manager in a different system. No idea how he'll be used or if he'll even be first choice under Postecoglou. He effectively won my main ML for me on the last day of the season so I'm certainly happy to go with him if he looks like he might have a similar role but I doubt it. Also less likely to take setpieces with Maddison there too

      Team structure probably, plus also it's early days and most picks are just for a bit of fun

      I have my eyes on him but we need to see Chelsea and Spurs in particular this pre season. New managers who will both bring strong ideas and are capable of dropping any of their players.

      Wingback, bought to be a wingback. Was a disaster at fullback.

      I'll wait and see how he gets on.

      Why SHOULD Spurs be more stable and solid?
      From all I've read of Ange, he favours an attack minded syle of play - where as Conte is more about solidity.
      And with Hojbjerg possibly on the way out, and with new signings coming in, I don't see them being more solid and stable than last season.

      Also, as others have pointed out, Porro's a wingback.

      "Spurs should be more stable and solid"

      You can say that both before and after pretty much any Spurs match or season. Because although they SHOULD BE, by and large, THEY'RE NOT.

    Are people getting Salah this season from the start ... because of a fear of missing out again ? 🙂

    1. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years

      Speaking for myself, FOMO is not a thing, and I can make better drafts without him.

    2. Red Red Robins

      More i just cant afford him

    3. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      10 months, 18 days ago

      Nope, I'm getting him from the start because I think Liverpool are going to smash in the goals this year and he will have a really good midfield behind him, and he's always had a high involvement in goals anyway. Even in a poor year like last season he still did incredibly well. No chance I'm going without

      1. TheTinman

        He also signed a big new deal last season right? He was probably considering his options - Madrid, PSG etc. That may have knocked him out of form slightly.

        And I do think the 2 or 3 missed pens were just a blip. But still a 20-30pt swing right.

      There are two camps;

      Those who pick him because they have the balls to go against captain Haaland every now and again.

      Those who pick him because they're scared of not owning big assets.

      There'll be a variety of reasons. That will be one, for some. He's only at 26% owned, so far. So, he's not as big a threat FOMO-wise.

      I don't have him. Drafts without have looked better. There's plenty of good midfield options.

      Basically, you can have Haaland and one of Trent, Salah, Kane. Anything more than Twomium and the overall squad suffers.

      I'm open-minded. Preseason and IRL transfers will most likely affect my final choice.

      Can't justify the £4.0m difference between Salah and Saka/BrunoF when I highly doubt there will be more than 40 points separating them this season.

      For captaincy GW2; because Liverpool should be much improved creativity-wise as Nate says; because its hard to know which other Liverpool attackers will be nailed; because its actually not too hard to afford him & Haaland; because he keeps banging out 240pts even when the team wobbles

      1. LangerznMash

        Remember last season Liverpool 9-0 Bournemouth and Salah didn't register a single attack return haha

          Of course! I owned him but for some reason didn't captain him (think I went with Jesus)

          That was an absolute freak and wouldn’t be basing any decisions on it

          I was on holiday sitting by the pool getting all worked up by that on my phone, while Haaland scored a hat trick.

          Couldn't believe my eyes

        That said, I can't be 100% sure he's there in ny final team - funds would be the only issue. But I can certainly think of plenty of good reasons to want him! 🙂

      Come and say hello in the other Kingdom!

        Do you have a map to the aforementioned Kingdom?

      Basically you can get 2 of Haaland, Kane, Salah, TAA. Any more then you seriously disrupt the squad. There are a lot of great options for 4.5-5.5 this year in defence. Top mids also for 7.5. So, getting 2 premiums will still allow most managers to put a really good squad out.

      1. Andy_Social

        I can see myself getting him in on a wildcard, after I've built up a bit of TV. I think Liverpool won't be fast out of the blocks; I can see them building up momentum as the season goes on. Klopp tends to introduce new signings gradually, so I don't think we see the best of Slobby and Mac A for a couple of months or more, at which point we might see Salah set on fire.

      For me, it’s as simple as

      A) salah + botman
      B) Trent + Foden + 1.5m

      With Haaland being such a reliable captain, it’s hard to make a case for carrying Salah as a non captainable premium.

    11. Botman and Robben

      I plan to captain him in GW2.

    Maybe be go with something like thisMarcus your message to David De Gea was so heartfelt . it moved me to tearsheart emoji.

    Like a lot of others it comes down to Mo Salah v No Salah

    A…
    Pickford
    Trent Gabriel Estupinan
    Saka Bruno Foden Maddison Mbeumo
    Haaland Jesus

    Areola Botman Bell Archer

    B…
    Pickford
    Shaw Gabriel Estupinan Botman
    Salah Saka Bruno Mbeumo
    Haaland Jesus

    Areola Henry Scarpa Archer

    Warming to B

      B for me any day. Easy to downgrade Salah if needed.
      To fit him in later you’d need a precious WC.
