    Jesus or Martinelli?

    1. No Professionals
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Jesus

    2. 3 A
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Both

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Jesus

    4. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Depends who is else is in the equation.

      Jesus + mid vs Martinelli + fwd

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        For example Jesus & Maddison vs Martinelli & Watkins

        1. Pumpkinhead
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          I like both of those options.

    5. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I'd be tempted with Jesus, Saka and Ode for an Arsenal attacking triple up.

  2. No Professionals
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Which 3
    A) Trent, Porro, Mitoma
    B) Shaw, James, Bruno

    Porro/James would be first sub in gw1

    1. 3 A
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Maybe A

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      B

      But I wouldn't get James. Lots of good options at 5.0 and 4.5m.

  3. The Wanton Trader
    • 6 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    I prefer A.

    Do you have Rashford though?

    Hi guys, Who is the best and most nailed Liverpool mid other than Salah?

    1. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Maybe Gakpo

      1. Hey_Arnold
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        He's a forward.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Really hard to say re: Jota/Diaz/Gakpo/Darwin. Don't really feel comfortable starting with any of those

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Fabinho at the moment.

      2. HarryFPL
        • 1 Year
        10 months, 17 days ago

        As a Liverpool fan, I have the feeling that Diaz is the most nailed out of the non-Salah LFC midfield options. Always brilliant when he starts.

    3. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Diaz always seems to be a Klopp favourite when fit, but maybe too soon to tell.

  5. Haa-lala-land
    • 3 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    I don't think I can afford Haaland in my team this season

    1. 3 A
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Just LALA without Haaland.

    2. F4L
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      more viable than last season, but still not the best idea

      would only do it if you're bored stuck captaining him every week

    3. Andy_Social
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Fair. You can have three non-playing forwards for the price of one Haaland.

  6. mattyb09

    Best 4.5 DEF from the offset?

    a) Cash
    b) Botman
    c) Romero
    d) Henry/Pinnock
    e) Others?

    1. F4L
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Pinnock or Collins

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Will Pinnock play in a back 4 is the question... might be Mee & Collins? I would go for Henry/Hickey for a sure starter from Brentford 4.5s

        Quite like Cash too but a Villa fan on the last page was saying they're in the market for a new RB

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          They often play a Back 3 but when they go Back 4 someone has to miss out - we don't know who yet.

          I'm currently on a Henry/Cash rotation, but I like Henry/Botman and Cash/Guehi too. Veltman is fit again.

          1. Andy_Social
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            Oh and a Chelsea starting CB will be 4.5. We don't know which one yet.

        2. F4L
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          yeah fair point.

          i wonder w/o Toney if they end up playing 3 back irrespective of the opposition

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Pinnock

    3. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Henry ( or Hickey who could prove to be great value)

    4. Sting in the Tail
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Pinnock if you’re going Brentford. Collins will only play in a back 3 (3-5-2) replacing Schade (4-3-3).
      Henry looks attacking but his final ball is poor. Pinnock and Mee have a chance of scoring every time Brentford have a throw in the final third let alone a corner.

        Thanks! 🙂

    Are either Morris or Ndiaye worth considering?

    1. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I don't think so when you can get Wissa for 0.5m more, or DCL if you're that way inclined.

      But don't let anyone here deter you if you like that what you see from those two. Football is full of surprises, and you never know, Sheffield United and Luton could exceed expectations. Weirder things have happened.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Apparently, Ndiaye is on the verge of leaving. Dunno where. Morris could be on pens and could be okay for a very occasional start.

      2. F4L
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        cheers, yeah hard to look past Wissa for the price

        tbh Morris seems more central to Luton attacking play but just checked and they only scored 57 goals last year, I haven't watched Luton play but on the face of it that's not promising for next season in the Prem

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Yeh, I mean you gotta get into the penalty box to win a penalty. It's not for me; in addition Bell wouldn't be my 4m defender of choice either.

    2. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Morris is actually decently high on my forward watchlist. In seasons past I have usually started with the top performing Championship forward but this year's kind pricing has made other options more appealing.

  8. To Salah or not to Salah

    • 9 Years

    To Salah or not to Salah?

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      That really is the question. Think I'm not at the minute, but could easily change.

      1. KLOPPS AND ROBBERS... the s…
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        My draft without Salah looks lovely but if I tried to get him in I would struggle (at least 2 transfers away)

        1. Hairy Potter
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          For me it seems to be Trent or Salah. At the minute it's Trent, but will depend on how Liverpool line up in preseason.

    2. notlob legin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I've currently got him - my logic is it's easier to downgrade than to upgrade once the season starts - this might change mind as we've still got a long way to go

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        There are a lot of players I'd like but don't have, but he is the only one I'm really nervous about.

    3. Piggs Boson
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      LR made an interesting video on Szoboszlai: https://youtu.be/FLo5UfVTi7A His touch map indicates he likes to drift wide and hug the touchline. This makes me think Salah will be freed to come inside a lot more. We could be seeing a strong Salah this season.

      But even so, I still can't see the value if you don't captain him too much, so it's unlikely I'll go there. But this is one of those decisions where you should go with your gut imo, taking into account how many times you expect to captain him in the coming weeks.

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Aye, signs are good for Salah to go on the rampage this season. I was initially unsure about a 2 premium setup with Haaland hogging captaincy but I think I'm getting more & more entrenched in the pro-Salah camp

        1. notlob legin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Are you going to the game today?

            I'm in the ground now 🙂

        2. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          My feeling is Liverpool will go on a very strong run at one point. But in the early GWs, the new boys will still be learning the ropes and gelling with the team. I can see Hendo (if he doesn't go to Saudi) and Jones getting lots of sub minutes in the early weeks, so I'm okay to hold off for the start.

        Basically the opposite of what Tifo said in their video 😀 Based on LR's video, it seems Szob is a very suitable player to take up wide positions and allow TAA to invert.

        Of course, his versatility and quality, along with Mac Allister's, allows for Klopp (and the players themselves) to chop and change things within and between games. And what we're left with is a bunch of patterns and tendencies rather than set positions (per player) and formations (per team).

        I agree it seems good news for Salah in FPL.

    4. Pumpkinhead
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      I've put together a few drafts with Salah and Haaland and liked one that was a 4-4-2 but it's not flexible. I already take too many hits and feel like starting with an inflexible formation may be a bad decision lol.

    5. DBW - Slug's Mortgage …
      • 3 Years

      I saw his opening days stats a few days ago.

      Yes for me

      1. Rasping Drive
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 15 days ago

        Skewed, however, by Pool frequently coming up against newly promoted teams at home in GW1. That said, the way Chelsea played last season you might conclude that it’s “business as usual” this season.

  9. Over Midwicket
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 12 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Jesus + Maddo/7.5

    Vs

    Nkunku + Martinelli

    1. Pumpkinhead
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      first one only because I don't know what Nkunku will do and would rather wait and see on them.

  10. I Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    I've just stuck Declan Rice in my team so that I have the possibility of starting with 4 Arsenal players. The odds of him making my final draft are extremely slim but what if Partey/Jorginho play DM and Rice gets the #8 role we're expecting Havertz to have? He'd be great value at 5.5m in that scenario.

    1. theplayer
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      That would require you to make no changes after he signs which would be extremely unlikely though.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        That's a good thing, means I can't tinker for the sake of it.

  11. Pumpkinhead
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 17 days ago

    Which combo?

    a) Trent and Mbeumo
    b) James (or any defender up to 7) and Martinelli

    4.5
    ___, Gabriel, Estu
    ___, Rash, Saka, Mitoma, Foden
    Haaland, Watkins

    United v Leeds starting in a few minutes.

    XI | Heaton; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Martinez, Fernandez; Mainoo, Mount, Hannibal; Amad, Sancho, Forson.

    SUBS | Bishop, Kovar, Bennett, Fish, Jurado, Williams, Collyer, Gore, Hansen-Aaroen, Oyedele, Savage, Shoretire, Emeran, Hugill.

    .
    Mainoo is an exceptional talent. He just won the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year award, for United's best youth player. Previous winners include Garnacho, Rashford, Scholes, Giggs. He's a central midfielder with exceptional passing, a really clever player, and will likely be playing in the single pivot, the Casemiro role, with Mount and Hannibal as the 8s. I wouldn't be surprised if he's used as Casemiro's backup this season. He's that good.

              With you stealing this game you're directly lowering their transfer funds.

      Looks more like Hannibal 10, Mount alongside Mainoo (on his left). Still, Mount is pressing our CBs, making runs in behind them & on all set pieces

      1. Piggs Boson
        • 12 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yeah, Mount in double pivot.

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Could be great for Bruno but I guess we can't read much into it given who is playing and who isn't.

          1. Piggs Boson
            • 12 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            Yeah, can't draw anything from it. Mainoo is still young, so Mount might just be there to give him a bit of support.

    Anyone got any Brentford related questions?

    1. notlob legin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      Is Wissa likely to start up front?

      1. Sting in the Tail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yes, in most games at least. He’ll be central in a three, and up front with Mbeumo in an 2 against the better sides. He is a better finisher than Toney and under priced

        1. notlob legin
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Thanks - sorry just asked another question below

        2. sirmorbach
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Good option then you reckon?

          1. Sting in the Tail
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            Yes, at that price point. I’d be surprised if he wasn’t Brentford’s leading scorer come Xmas though that might depend on how many pens Mbeumo scores.

    2. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 17 days ago

      When Frank goes with a 4-3-3 in the 'easier' games, do you think Collins will threaten Mee or Pinnock yet? What with the latter two both being naturally left-footed. I'd assume he sticks with Mee/Pinnock initially, based on the success of last season?

      1. Sting in the Tail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yes, Collins will replace Schade not Pinnock in the 3-5-2 games.

        1. Sting in the Tail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Rather Shade will replace Collins not Pinnock in the 4-3-3 games!

          1. Skonto Rigga
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 6 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            Gotcha! Thought as much.

          2. I Member
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 17 days ago

            How can you be so sure of this? Collins is a new big money signing. Seems a bit presumptuous to say Pinnock will definitely be ahead of him.

            1. Sting in the Tail
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 8 Years
              10 months, 17 days ago

              Pinnock was Brentford’s best defender last season - look at his stats. Collins will play in the harder games. Brentford buy for the future. Lewis-Potter, Damsgaard and Shade were the big money signings last year but weren’t always first choice.

            Yes sorry. Only injury will break up Pinnock and Mee whatever formation.

      is Mbeumo pretty much nailed, OOP and on pens?

      1. Sting in the Tail
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        10 months, 17 days ago

        Yes, yes and out of position in the way Salah is out of position for Liverpool.

      Also how nailed on is Henry? Could there be a formation change with Collins arriving

        Henry is nailed. If he could cross a ball he’d have an England cap by now. Collins is the Pontus replacement in the squad.

          Thanks again - I'm currently starting with Wissa and Henry so useful feedback

          Would you have him or Pinnock?

            Pinnock. He has more chance of a goal involvement.

              Cheers, mate, many thanks.

      Is Hickey and Canos competing for one spot when 352?
      Is Hickey first choice when 442?
      Just how many bus stops are in Brentford?

        Canos won’t play for them again. Roeslev is Hickey’s competition but will likely only take minutes from the bench in either formation.

      What is MC Grindah like in person?

        Met him in a pub a few years ago.

        Decent banter

      If Raya goes will he get more or less points this season in another Prem side?

        Depends where he goes. He’ll always be good for pass completion stats. Brentford defend in a way that allows a lot of shots but not many big chances so he might make less saves if he was at somewhere like United but more clean sheets. Flekken is hopefully a like for like replacement and might well be this years 4.5 pick of the gks.

          I don't have any Liverpool players for GW1- GW2 is this too risky.Should I rip up half of my defense to get Trent even though I have estupinian,Porro,Mings,Stones and Gabriel.

            Patience mate , pointless ripping up anything at this early stage
            Play around with team structure sure but far to early to to land on your final lot..

            Can't have 'em all. I've got triple City, United and Arsenal, so I have no space for a Liverpool asset, and I'm fine with that.

            1. WVA
              • 7 Years
              10 months, 17 days ago

              Two City, two United three Arsenal and one Pool player

          3. WVA

            I would ditch Porro Mings stones instantly especially if it meant getting TAA

        Kane possibly staying one more season is great for the game. Haaland/Salah/Kane becomes a real conundrum

        1. WVA
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 17 days ago

          Kane was quality last season, another level on Salah plus the other forwards are poo

        Is Martinelli not a risk for xMinutes with Trossard behind him?

        a. salah and joao pedro
        b mitoma martinelli/foden and watkins
