        Thank you!

        And yes, yes I am, :o)

    Onana | Areola
    Stones | Chilwell | Gabriel | Botman | Kabore
    Rashford | Bruno | Saka | Grealish | Nakamba
    Haaland | Jesus | Joao Pedro

    Think I’m settled on this. Decided going Salah is just not worth it for the sake of one week captaincy. Thoughts?

      What are your thoughts on Pedro? Confident enough to start him every week?

      1. Jonesfromthere

        8 months, 23 days ago

        He looked superb last game and De Zerbi raved about him. No way the record signing is benched IMO

          Welbeck Ferguson Undav and Pedro....All easy avoids

      You'll be forced to play one of Botman or Pedro each week. Botman doesn't have great opening fixtures to begin with and there's still a question mark over Pedro's minutes with Brighton well covered in the forward roles. Brighton's fixtures tail off after gw3 so it might be harder to move off Pedro at his price point.

      Think you might be better off downgrading Pedro to a 4.5 and upgrading Botman/Kabore to Estupinan

      1. Øgaard it's Haa…

        Or, one could upgrade him to a £6.0, if one is diligent, and it's necessary.

    A) Stones+Mbeumo
    B) Foden+Guehi

    1. Pariße
      • 9 Years

      B

    A very clear line of questioning. Nice and colourful, with a distinct lack of gurning from self-proclaimed FPL experts. However, I'm taking points off as Bruno F has his mouth open, exposing his ratlike features. Come to think of it, Mount looks a bit ratty too. Probably played Ratty in an updated school production of Wind in the Willows, with dancing, which he perfected over time to land crazy and non-crazy TikTok girlfriends.

    Thumbnail rating: 8/10.

    Flekken
    Estupinan Gabriel Shaw Ake
    Salah Rashford Saka Martinelli
    Haaland DCL

    Areola Nakamba Kabore Osula

    Been pretty set on this lately, some minor changes that I've been considering though:

    A) DCL & Shaw (draft above, 442)
    B) Mbeumo & Joao Pedro (352)
    C) Mbeumo & Dunk (451)

    1. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Think I am going B.

  6. SpaceCoyote97
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Is Veltman a good route in Brighton's defence? Don't have the .5 for Estupinan unless I go Onana > Flekken.

    1. Hairy Potter
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Will you want him after GW3?

      1. SKENG
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Downgrade Onana.

  7. SpaceCoyote97

    What are people's thoughts on Lerma? Starting for Palace?

    1. Bluetiger1
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      yes

  8. AD105
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Best ST for 8.0 or less that isn’t Jesus?

    Thinking about Watkins but not sure there’s a standout

    Alternative is triple ARS attack and take out Gabriel, feels a bit OTT though?

    1. SpaceCoyote97
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Nkunku.

      After hearing about Joao Pedro, I'm considering a striker triple up with him, Nkunku and Haaland.

    2. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Watkins, Nkunku, Jackson, Alvarez, Wissa, Pedo would be my shortlist.

      1. Pariße
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Jesus, Isak, Wilson, Solanke, and you crossed the line with the last one.

        1. Sure You Did
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 23 days ago

          He said that are not Jesus and I am not interested in the rest, hence not on my shortlist.

    3. Alan Watts
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Thing is, as much as Jesus is not ideal....we know what were getting with him for the first few fixtures, with 2 nice home games....he could miss loads of chances, but will get plenty of them and with the fixtures might get a few returns..

      Then, we'll see if nkunku settles in or if Watkins is on form or another emerging forward etc

      1. Øgaard it's Haa…
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I have faith in Nkunku against the.....Liverpool 🙂

  9. AD105
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Thoughts?

    Jesus an easy downgrade to another FWD, Joao Pedro a bit of a punt that I don’t have to play if he doesn’t work out

    Flecken
    TAA Estu Gabriel
    Rashy Saka Foden Mitoma Mbuemo
    Haaland Jesus

    Areola, Joao Pedro, Bell, Beyer

    1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      At home against Luton? Yep, better bench him.

      1. AD105
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Hadn’t done the lineup for GW1 tbf, figured he may be benched some over Mbuemo/Mitoma at some point though

    2. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      No point having Pedro if you don't start him against Luton.

    3. Drexl Spivey
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Why downgrade Jesus if starting him from the off?

      1. AD105
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Just mean because he’s 8.0+ he’s an easy move to Watkins, Nkunku etc if someone else flies out the blocks

        1. Drexl Spivey
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          He is, but stick with one instead of wasting a transfer, imo. If you fancy Nkunku or Watkins over the same run go with them, otherwise go with your gut.

    Signed up to PlanFPL, clicked 'optimise my team' and it suggested I start with two keepers. #jurysout

    1. Wild Rover
      • 13 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Have you got two keepers from the same team, where it’s still to be decided who will be first choice?

      1. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        11 year gravless lurker, probably can’t find the reply button 😛

      2. marinade
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Nope.

  11. MoSalalalalalalalalah
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Seems the Pedro Party is beginning, not sure if he's safe from Roberto Roulette though. Pedro could score a hattrick and De Zerbi would probably play Undav the next week.

    1. Dash444
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      If I had him and he scored a hat trick I wouldn’t care about a benching the following week.

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        What about the other way round?

  12. Sure You Did
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Naouirou Ahamada a likely starter for CPL? He is in predicted line ups and at 4.5, could be a steal.

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I worry for Palace this season with the way they're getting gutted.

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        They coped alright when Zaha was injured last season and Eze seemed to take the talismanic duties. Hope Olise stays though.

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Massive difference between missing 11 games and 38 though, and I think Olise is as good as gone.

          11 goals between Ayew, Edouard and Mateta last season - they're going to struggle massively unless they replace their wingers properly. Think people are forgetting how bad Hodgson was in his last full season too.

    Good evening all!! Rather than having Mitoma and a 4.5 forward, how about Ensico and J-Ped for the same price?? Give a bit more depth to our teams too

    1. Pariße
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      If you take Enciso we might find you whining over his minutes.

      1. 1912 F.A Cup Winners
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        He would be a 5th mid and JP 3rd forward, easy punt for first two games at least and If it don’t work out you can just bench them

    2. theplayer
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      You would then just have the problem about who to play out of both of them,

  14. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Johnstone
    Gabriel / Stones / Porto / Estupinan / Colwill
    Saka / Martinelli / Son / Rashford / Bruno
    Haaland / Wood / Mubama

    Thoughts on this? Feel pretty settled on it in all honest. Will be 4-5-1

    1. Øgaard it's Haa…
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I'd have Nkunku over Son. Without Kane Son is done.

  15. Pariße
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    A) Martinelli & MacAllister

    B) Bowen/Foden & March

    1. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Foden and Mitoma

    2. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      March a minutes risk no?

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Otherwise I'd probably have him myself

      2. Pariße
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I’d hope not. We’ll get an idea after De Zerbi’s last presser before the season, but I find him more attractive than Mitoma or Gross.

  16. Coaly
    • 11 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Who will do best in the first 8 weeks?

    a) Trent
    b) Nkunku

    1. Pariße
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Trent

    2. Eat my goal!
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Not as simple as that

      It’s Trent + 4.5 fwd

      Vs

      Nkunku + 5 def

    3. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      B

    4. Botman and Robben
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      b

  17. AC/DC AFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    If you could have just 2 of these in your fantasy team this season, who would you select?

    Henry
    Agüero
    Suárez
    Salah
    Solskjaer
    Podolski
    van Persie
    Drogba
    G Jesus
    Klinsmann

    1. Drexl Spivey
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      The two still playing PL footy.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Exactly

    2. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Suarez, Salah

    3. Well you know, Triffic
      • 13 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Suarez
      RVP

    4. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Suarez, Salah.

    5. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Baffled at why Jesus and Podolski are included in this list.

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Top 10 for minutes per goal/assists excluding penalties (50 games +)

        Apparently

        https://twitter.com/OptaJoe/status/1683854156035944449?t=tVCHYUar4Xjup-NeJOmX7w&s=19

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Very surprising. Jesus coming off the bench for the best team in the world against tired legs makes sense (same as Ole) but Podolski has shocked me considering I remember him spending a lot of time on the left in a period when Arsenal were crap.

    Tuesday 9pm and I'm p*ssed with the boys, ready to dish out some quality fantasy football advice boys

  19. mattyb09
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    8 months, 23 days ago

    Anyone interested in 5.5 Danjuma?

    -He was 50/50 on Spurs & Everton last season
    -Reportedly regrets the move to Spurs due to the inability to break into the starting 11
    = Reading between the lines, is he nailed at Everton? A club with clear lack of other good attacking options?

    1. Third Eye Vision
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      In terms of what you get from a 5.5 midfielder in fpl, I’d argue that McNeill and Doucoure were viable options already. I’ve considered a 5.5 mid as my 8th attacker given that I can afford it. Danjuma might be even better. He’ll be a starter and might even be OOP at times.

    2. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      He's defo getting booed at Goodison.

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        He may...until he starts scoring goals and saves them from another relegation sweat

      2. Third Eye Vision
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Most fans know what a mess we were in when he signed for Spurs. We’d sacked Lampard and didn’t have a replacement. The timing was poor, but I don’t think the fans really hold it against him.

        I’m just glad that Young and Danjuma wanted to join us. Danjuma’s got a point to prove. He’ll be fine.

      3. TheBiffas
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        I know a lot of Everton fans and this isn't the general consensus

    3. Stamford B
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Unless they buy a striker it’ll probably be him playing upfront.

  20. sneif4

    Thoughts on this first draft?
    Ederson
    James Shaw TAA Gabriel
    Saka Mitoma Rashford Foden
    Haaland Wilson

    Bench all fodder:
    Areola Bell Baptiste Surridge

    1. Herman Toothrot
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      James is injured I believe

      1. sneif4
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Thanks

      2. Stamford B
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I think he was just ill apparently

  21. Wild Rover
    • 13 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Southampton reject £40m bid for Lavia, then promptly start him in a pointless friendly. Ridiculous.

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Friendlies aren't pointless in preseason

      1. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        They are losing him for sure, so why risk a serious injury?

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          You just said they rejected a bid - if Liverpool don’t cough up the cash, they’ll want him fit.

          1. Wild Rover
            • 13 Years
            8 months, 23 days ago

            Lol, he’s obviously going, just the price to negotiate. Getting an acl injury is not being fit. I can’t believe how you (and others). don’t get this.

            1. x.jim.x
              • 9 Years
              8 months, 23 days ago

              It’s a bit of a jog, not the Champions League final. He’s 19, relax.

              1. Wild Rover
                • 13 Years
                8 months, 23 days ago

                I’m totally relaxed. I’m not a Liverpool or Soton fan and have no interest in him as a FPL option. It’s just a totally dumb decision from a financial pov.

                1. x.jim.x
                  • 9 Years
                  8 months, 23 days ago

                  Worst case scenario is they keep their best player, so I don’t see it as dumb at all.

                  1. Wild Rover
                    • 13 Years
                    8 months, 22 days ago

                    Lol, worst case scenario is they keep their best player with a serious injury, when they could have sold him for a minimum £40m? Are you real? 😀

                    1. Wild Rover
                      • 13 Years
                      8 months, 22 days ago

                      Ps King Crimson were gash

                      • 9 Years
                      8 months, 22 days ago

                      Why bother having friendlies at all if every player is so at risk?

                      1. x.jim.x
                        • 9 Years
                        8 months, 22 days ago

                        PS he was subbed off at halftime, injury-free. Shocker.

                      2. Wild Rover
                        • 13 Years
                        8 months, 22 days ago

                        Are you pissed? He is their most valuable asset and is going to be sold regardless, but not if he’s crocked. Jesus, can’t discuss with muppets. Goodnight

                      3. Wild Rover
                        • 13 Years

                        Great hindsight. Well done

                        Yeah, we’ve never seen transfers breakdown over fees before.

      It's fine, the deal will eventually be sorted anyway. Unless there's some sort of freak injury.

        • 5 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Well this has got JINX written all over it. Watching intently.

      2. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        That’s my point

    3. Third Eye Vision
      • 11 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      So, he shouldn’t be playing football while other clubs are interested in him?

      1. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        No. They should building the team they are actually going to have when the season starts, not risking injury to their cash cow.

    4. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Does that mean they just value him at more and/or feel he’s important enough to be first team

      1. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Obviously they value him at more, which makes the decision to risk him when he is 100% leaving, so stupid.

    5. Hairy Potter
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I see Livramento is on the bench. Not sure if Newcastle are still interested after the rejected offers.

      1. Wild Rover
        • 13 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Obviously not, otherwise they would starting him, hoping he gets injured 😉

        1. Hairy Potter

          Lol

    Thoughts?

    Pickford
    Trent - Chilwell - Porro - Patterson
    Son - Rashford - Saka (C)
    Kane - Nkunku - Darwin
    (Martinez - Pau - Nakanba - Anderson)

    Everton/Villa rotation, Saka/Kane captaincy rotation.

    1. Sure You Did
      • 1 Year

      Don't like double Everton defence. Spurs won't keep many CS and their players are a wait and see. No Salah or more importantly Haaland. Darwin is far from nailed.

    2. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Agree with above about Pickford+ Patterson. Don't mind Pedro Porto but don't think Darwin is a good pick.

  23. Sure You Did
    • 1 Year
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Young currently in my squad.

    1. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Of all the 4.5 defender options, I don't think he's one of the best.

  24. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    I need a decent(ish) enabler for my midfield, 6.0 max. Currently punting on McNeil as he did well under Dyche. Any other suggestion?

    1. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      Benrahma

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Do you think he's nailed?

        1. TheBiffas
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Unless they sign another LW, yep. Plus he's on pens.

          1. sirmorbach

            Cheers, mate

      Buendia?

      1. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Not bad. Do you think he's nailed? Especially when Ramsey comes back..

        1. artvandelay316
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          He's been looking good in pre season and if he delivers in Ramsey's absence it could be his place to lose.
          If not what about a punt on Gibbs White?

          1. sirmorbach
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 23 days ago

            Yes! I think both him and Brennan Johnson are good options. It's between MGW, McNeil and Andreas for me at this point!

                8 months, 22 days ago

                Good to see you’ve narrowed it down.

      Opinions on best combo of these please?

      A) TAA, Shaw, Henry, Estupinan, Foden, 4.5 fodder forward (play 4-5-1)

      B) Stones, Shaw, Henry, Estupinan, Jota, Alvarez (play 3-5-2 and bench Henry)

      C) Stones, Gabriel, Henry, Estupinan, Foden, Darwin (play 3-5-2 and bench Henry)

      With B and C could also swap Henry for fodder and bank 0.5m.

      Cheers.

      Boltons ground is called the Tough Sheet stadium. Lol

      1. Stamford B

        Not that funny I suppose

        1. Wild Rover
          • 13 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          It is funny tbf, but it’s a bit old hat now 🙂

            First time I’d heard it tbf

            1. Wild Rover
              • 13 Years
              8 months, 22 days ago

              Probably more a joke in the Northwest tbf 🙂

                its only 15 mins from me. i didnt know.
                out of sight out of mind

    5. pmletch
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      A) Chillwell, Rashford, Mitoma (2.5 ITB
      B) Colwill, Salah, Enciso/Pedro (0.0 ITB)

      1. Sure You Did
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 23 days ago

        A but I have Salah.

    6. MoSalalalalalalalalah
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Would it be ludicrous to have Nkunku as my first best option?

      1. MoSalalalalalalalalah
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I like the 12th man rotation idea, but lot of money

    7. sirmorbach

      Danjuma, anyone?

      A) Stones+Mbeumo

      B) Foden+Guehi
