    Is Ollie Watkins essential?

      Not the best opening fixtures but could be good differential to start season

        First 3 are good, and he's just scored against Newcastle (GW1)!

          Fair point- I was thinking Newcastle at St James’s Park but then ………….. lol

        Yeah. First three could be good. He has a nice record against Toon too, I think.

    Beundia! It is on!

      Tidy little player

    This new Newcastle midfielder is not very good. Very slow.

    Buendia goal
    Luiz assist

    Newcastle all over the place here. Seem to be playing 4-2-3-1 instead of usual 4-3-3. Not clicking at the minute and too easy to play through.

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Actually it might be 3 at the back with Targett and Murphy wingbacks. Whatever it is, it's poor.

      1. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Hope Howe goes back to normal 4-3-3 as this isn't working.

    Watkins almost with his second.

    Newcastle regression incoming

    CL will do them zero favours

    Eze or Mitoma or Mbeumo?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Eze for me as I think he's more exciting, but it's a toss-up really

      1. BeaversWithAttitude
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        I fancy Eze the most but do have Mitoma as well, at the moment. Brighton too attacking to ignore.

    2. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      I prefer Mbuemo, personally. 18 goal involvements last season and now down as a midfielder who will be even more involved in the goals in Toney's absence. He and Wissa were flying in the last few games, subsequent to Toney's suspension.

  9. sirmorbach

    How's she looking?

    Onana
    TAA, Gabriel, Botman, Pinnock (Beyer)
    Salah, Rashford, Martinelli, Eze (Nakamba)
    Haaland, Wissa (4.5)

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      I really like it, but seems a little light on Arsenal attack.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        You're right. Man, it's so tough. Thanks for your thoughts!

    2. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years

      playing Botman every week? not good.

      I'd drop Onana to 4.5, or maybe even better, Rashford to Saka

      To upgrade Botman

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Really fancy Rashford, so probably Onana to go. Thanks!

    3. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      A TAA & Salah squad isn't my preference but a pretty good way to go about it.

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        Means a lot, many thanks!

        1. Jimbo74
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 7 days ago

          If it was me I'd maybe go Eze to Mbuemo, downgrade Rashford to BF so you could then upgrade Pinnock to Torres for an additional first teamer.

            This is the only change I see really complete.

      To be honest I don’t think a Trent Salah Haaland team is optimal as weakens team overall. Sorry!

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 7 days ago

        That's fair enough. Cheers, mate.

    Anderson goal! Nice composure.

  11. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    10 months, 7 days ago

    Is Anderson likely to get regular minutes for Newcastle?

      I wouldn't have thought so with Tonali, Bruno, Longstaff, Willock and Joelinton already competing for three spots in the middle plus Gordon, Almiron, Murphy and Barnes (and Isak + Joelinton as options at LW) tussling out wide. Highly thought of and will get sub apps here and there but wouldn't be reliable, unless he goes ape in pre-season.

        Hoping this formation tonight is just an experiment, we go back to 4-3-3.

    2. BeaversWithAttitude

      The kid is hot tonight.

    3. Hairy Potter

      Should be a regular sub appearances with 5 subs and having to manage league and CL.

  12. sirmorbach

    So... Raul Jimenez... 5.5...

    1. Jarnathan
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Seems a shadow of his former self before that head injury - also, Wolves not that great unless I'm missing something?

  13. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 5 Years

    Isak G
    Anderson A

  14. Hairy Potter
    • 9 Years
    10 months, 7 days ago

    Strange half for Newcastle. Playing 3 at the back (Trippier, Schar and Targett) with Murphy and Targett as wingbacks. Bruno and Tonali sat in front of the back three. Miggy and Anderson ahead of them, then Isak up front.

    They struggled for their usual patterns of play in attack and mainly on the ball over the top.

    Back in it at 2-2, and who knows what the second half will bring.

    1. Hairy Potter

      *mainly relied on the ball over the top

    Beundia brace!

    1. BeaversWithAttitude
      • 5 Years
      10 months, 7 days ago

      Kellyman A (I think?)

  16. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 5 Years
    10 months, 7 days ago

    Wilson G!
    Gordon A.

  17. BeaversWithAttitude

    No VAR is pretty good! Woo wee!

  18. BeaversWithAttitude
    • 5 Years

    Archer sighting!

  19. BeaversWithAttitude

    Lol, no one else in the EST time zone besides me? Great match!

      1. BeaversWithAttitude

        Dat's what I like to hear!

      I'm watching too!

    Tyrone Mings during the drinks break, on the18 goals thus far in the tournament: 'I'm sure it makes for great viewing but it's not saying a lot for the defence.' Hahaha!

      The comments above yours are 8 days old.
      What's the news on Mings. Is he at risk of not starting?

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 27 days ago

        He started on Sunday but so did pau and cash . Cash played in an advance role

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 27 days ago

          Cash will be a terrific option WHEN HE STARTS. I get the impression Emery is emulating Arteta in planning to alternate his attacking wingbacks. Some times Digne/Moreno are the attackers and a centre back plays in Cash's position. Sometimes a centreback plays instead of Digne. It'll be a lottery.
          Torres and Mings are both left-footed centrebacks - it remains to be seen if they can play together comfortably.

            Great analysis thanks - sounds like pau maybe most secure

  24. Stranger Mings

    Anyone going 3 x 4.0 defenders ?!
