    Stones or Chilwell?

    1. I Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 23 days ago

      I asked that earlier. The answer was resoundingly Stones but I still prefer Chilwell tbh.

        Beggars the question, why did you ask?

        1. I Member
          • 8 Years
          8 months, 23 days ago

          Sometimes I like to get a feel for what others are thinking, doesn't necessarily mean I will be swayed by the answers.

      Stones if he starts Charity Shield, Chilwell if not.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 23 days ago

        Is starting the Community Shield going to stop him from being rotated in future games?

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

          Who started more games last season - Stones or Chilwell?

          1. I Member

            Not sure why you answered my question with a completely unrelated question.

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

              I’m sure the penny will drop soon.

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

      Chilwell but I won't have either

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

      Chilwell for me.

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

      Both

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

      Stonewell

    7. Samsonite
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      On both atm

    8. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years

      Stones - will probably play more so than not, especially if he's acting in midfield a lot. could be very good for baps with clean sheet if so

      Chilwell - obviously very explosive, and consistent and underpriced if Chelsea and him play well. Poch used to at least rotate fullbacks, if he continues to do so is dodgey and will cause headaches, also chilwell gets injured somewhat regularly

    9. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I'm planning a defense of Chilwell, Gabriel, Ake/Akanji atm.

      I think Estupinan is overrated with Brighton losing their midfield.

      1. Count of Monte Hristo
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Not concerned about Ake/Akanji rotation?

  2. zdrojo187
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    A) D.Jota + Wissa
    or
    B) Darwin/Gakpo + Mbeumo

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

      B with Gakpo

      1. zdrojo187
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Thanks...
        I'm on B with Darwin

    2. TheBiffas
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Agree with above

    3. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Think the starting striker will be hard to call between Darwin and Gakpo, could be based on the team we're playing. But Jota a big no

    4. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      A

  3. balint84
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 23 days ago

    Martinez , Aké or Tilva?

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Martinez for me.

  4. sirmorbach
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Not that important really, but Beyer or Baldock?

    1. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Lesser owned lesser chance of early potential price drop?

    2. Stranger Mings
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Baldock

      1. Birds of Prey
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I concur, better fixtures

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

    Does it just seem to me or 343 clawed its way back into managers minds during preseason? 352 was template formation as it gets, but solid 2 first games of Nkunku, Watkins, Gakpo, Darwin, Jesus, Wissa changed things a bit

    1. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I think 352 will be the go to, but with such question marks around the striker options it's hard know. Unless going Watkins and Jesus who are fairly nailed

  6. Faxof
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Almost template but not quite?
    Three premium

    Onana
    TAA Gabriel Estupiñan Young
    Salah Rashford Saka Mbeumo
    Surridge Haaland

    Areola
    Archer
    Chukwuemeka
    Beyer

    1. sirmorbach
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      You starting Surridge?

      1. Birds of Prey
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Marvelous will play 4.5 mid Chuk> Marv no surridge start

    2. Bourbon, Pot Still or Islay…
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Hasn't Surridge left?

      Bench concern there fella

      1. Faxof
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Ah. Didn't know about surridge.
        I guess swap with mubana

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Woodrow

        2. Starskyb
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Mubama by no means nailed either behind Scamacca, Antonio and ings.

          Tbh, think you're gonna need to sacrifice someone for a decent second striker... mbeumo.out?

          1. Faxof
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            I have 0.5 INB

            1. Starskyb
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 22 days ago

              Maybe take estup down to 4.5 and you could get up to morris?

              Or go mbeumo to encisco, estup to 4.5 (Henry?) And surridge to wissa/DCL?

              1. Starskyb
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 3 Years
                8 months, 22 days ago

                Or Rashford to Bruno and go up to morris?

  7. LarryDuff
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Hey everybody, has any one got a league or would be interested in joining a league that is NO ERLING?

    Probably suit those who play a lil more casually and for the fun of it, plus interesting to see how a squad like that could end up 🙂

    1. Count of Monte Hristo
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Yes please

      1. LarryDuff
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Okay I'll get around to making one. I might post a few times for numbers, I'll try not to spam tho lol
        This idea is actually makin me excited for FPL!

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      All England player squad:-

      Pickford (Forster)
      TAA Stones Chilwell AWB Henry
      Rashford Saka Eze Bowen Foden
      Kane Watkins Archer

      1. LarryDuff
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I like that! Personally would go Maddy over Foden. Think spurs will be very attacking this season. See how the Kane saga fairs out

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Yes, I was swapping the two players around but worried about the Kane situation. May well follow your advice

          1. LarryDuff
            • 8 Years
            8 months, 22 days ago

            They won't sell Kane and have Richarlison as striker you wouldn't think, they'll have plenty of cash to secure a top striker. 25+ goals a season is hard to replace

            1. The Ilfordian
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years
              8 months, 22 days ago

              I rate Richarlison despite a difficult season last year. Okay you’ve convinced me, I’m making the change

  8. Starskyb
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    A) Onana, Stones and 7.5 mid (actually currently bowen)

    Or

    B) Flekken, Gabriel and Bruno?

    1. Birds of Prey
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      B

    2. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      B

  9. Bourbon, Pot Still or Islay…
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Tried to hold off until August 9th before fiddling.... First Attempt.... Rip me a new one?

    Pickford (Virginia)
    James Saliba Estupinian (Baldock, Emerson)
    Son, Fernandes, Foden, Saka, McNeill
    Halland, Eduard (Nkunku)

    1. Starskyb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Don't mind it at all. Personally, I keep flip flopping on foden.

      I'm unsure about mcneill and saliba, with timber coming in and Ben white there too.

      I like the eduard pick as a bit differential and a Good price.

      Happy fiddling!

    2. Birds of Prey
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      James injured ,Emerson bad fixtures to start,maybe eduard>4.5 and upgrade McNeil> mbuemo or mitoma,
      Nkunku bad fixtures until gw 3,Try to find .5 to > Jesus, Areola is a 4.0 keeper who may win starting WH spot
      You have no MU def and they have good fixtures. Good Luck what do I know could be a great midfield with a 6.5

    3. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Depends if Caciedo stays, would prefer Chilwell James is a pain, Mc Neill and Eduard are strange shouts

  10. Count of Monte Hristo
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    a) Shaw + Trossard/Maddison/Foden

    or

    b) Martínez/Porro + Martinelli

    1. Birds of Prey
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      A with Foden

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

      B with Porro

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

    West Ham looking to make a midfield out of Gallagher - Soucek - McTominay. Might as well give Moyes his P45 now, not getting over 30% possession with that core.

    1. Count of Monte Hristo
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      MSG without the flavour.

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

        Probably more likely to cause headaches anorl

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      That's a completely fine midfield for a team like West Ham.

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

        There is absolutely zero ball-retention in that midfield - even “a team like West Ham” (bit condescending) shouldn’t want to play hot potato.

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          "Lump it up to the big man"
          Hang on, by the time the season starts, they won't have a striker!

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

            Won’t have a chairman either if rumours are to be believed…

  12. Stranger Mings
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    How’s this please ?
    Pickford (aerola)
    Gabriel botman/colwell Torres (baldock & beyer)
    Foden salah saka Bruno (baptise )
    Jesus haaland wissa

    1. Birds of Prey
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      who is Torres? To lean obviously neither botman or Colwill have good gw2 fixtures,
      Marvelous at Luton is the only nailed 4.5 mid at this point. I like the Wissa pick over Ferguson, but you may have to sacrifice him to shore up the back line (no MU def). Imo GL

      1. Stranger Mings
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Pau?

      2. Birds of Prey
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Oh okay, stranger Pau's? He rotates in gw2, but still playing a 4.0. Does henry make sense, not great gw1 fixture but
        are over first four.

        1. Stranger Mings
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Yeh Henry over botman maybe - thanks

  13. artvandelay316
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Opinions on best combo of these please?

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

    B) Stones, Shaw, Jota, Alvarez (play 3-5-2)

    C) Stones, Gabriel, Foden, Darwin (play 3-5-2)

    D) Stones, 4.0 def benched, Foden, Mitoma, Jesus (3-5-2) 1.5m bank.

    Cheers.

    1. Starskyb
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B or C.

      Think 4,5,1 is too inflexible

    Thoughts on Emi Martinez at 5.0m? Villa have really good fixtures from GW4 onwards.

    1. Count of Monte Hristo
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Got.

    2. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      i would go onana for that price range

    3. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Inter's trying to sign him

      1. Thomas Jerome Newton
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Hadn't heard that. Was becoming interested in Martinez.

      2. I Member
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        No they're not. They're in for Yann Sommer.

      3. Jarnathan
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        They offered 12 million for a player who cost 20 and has a contract until 2027 and since won the world cup. Absolute clowns

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          I'm starting with a 5m GK with a few to hopping onto another if they show better form plus fixtures. Marti will be on my radar maybe from GW5.

  15. Count of Monte Hristo
    • 10 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Really struggling to decide which one to drop from these 3. Any wisdom appreciated on this one.

    Eze

    Mitoma

    Mbeumo

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Swap Mitoma for Mbeumo in GW2

    2. Ricky - it doesn\'t ta…
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Fixtures would say eze but feel like he could be a consistent point scorer everyweek unlike the other two. But he will be rotated less then the other two as he will be more talismanic to his team. Maybe start without him then see if you want to get him in later on

    3. Birds of Prey
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Mbuemo--on pens

      1. Ricky - it doesn\'t ta…
        • 12 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        He should have corners and maybe free kicks aswell. Best fixtures out of the 3 for the start. Should start upfront the 1st week in their 352 against the better teams

    4. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Mitoma, Enciso is more exciting

    5. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Mitoma - I think the popular Brighton players are losing their appeal as a result of their defensive mids departing.

    6. Letsgo!
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Eze for sure

  16. Ricky - it doesn\'t ta…
    • 12 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Would anybody else not be surprised if man city and Liverpool dropped the back 3 and went back to their old systems? Could see cancelo make a comeback and man city's centre backs a minefield again

    1. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I'd be surprised if they didn't at least mix it up a bit at times.

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Liverpool maybe. Would be strange for City to change formation after winning the treble.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I felt it would make a lot of sense for Liverpool, but in the last friendly, Klopp was going even deeper into the Trent-midfield role.

        1. Andy_Social
          • 11 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Stones also was enjoying playing higher up in his midfield role.

  17. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Ekdal scored vs. Benfica

    Who's better? Beyer or Ekdal?

  18. AD105
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Thoughts? 0.5 ITB

    Flekken
    Gabriel Shaw Estu
    Martinelli Rashy Bruno Saka
    Haaland Nkunku J Pedro

    Areola Mbuemo Bell Beyer

    1. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      martin to saka with the 0.5 imo

      I like it. I am also very tempted by utd double attack with nice opening fixtures and pedro could be a bargain at 5.5. gl

      1. AD105
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Have Saka already lol

        1. Ajax Hamsterdam
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          so you do 🙂

  19. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    too risky to go without pool cover?

    1. Drexl Spivey
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Not really, no.

    2. LarryDuff
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I would argue so, but I'm playing a lil different to normal

    3. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      No, enough other to not be too concerned.

    4. Amartey Partey
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Not really. The two best ones are overpriced and the others are a gamble.

  20. adstomko

    Pickford
    Trent - Chilwell - Porro - Estupiñan
    Son - Rashford - Saka (C)
    Kane - Darwin - Jackson
    (Martinez - Pau - Nakamba - Anderson)

      far too risky imo.
      too much money for 2 keepers rotating
      jackson a bit of an enigma and so is darwin
      I like kane as a pick if he stays but not sure doubling with son
      and no haaland of course but i m sure u know the risks

        Wish I had the 0.5m for Nkunku.
        Everton and Villa rotate really nicely. Just don't want Martinez in goal vs Newcastle & Liverpool.
        Darwin will be a regular imo, with Gakpo playing behind him.

    Just seen Diaby is a 6.5mid. I like the cut of his jib, he has a very decent record at Leverkusen. I think I prefer him in Emery’s team to some of the other 6.5 mids.

      wait and see imo

        I like to be ahead of the curve 😉

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

    4-5-1

    Thoughts on this? Too template.

      Not that template, few differentials in there to what’s being posted on here which is refreshing.

      why not Vinicius over Wood for same price? with Mitro out, he could be an absolute bargain (had 72 fantasy points in 1,000 minutes)

      Also prefer 7 attacking players in general to defenders. I haven't found a team with 4 defenders starting that would outscore my team with 3 defenders starting. And if no TAA, should have Salah.

    Thoughts? 



    Onana



    Estupinian — Gabriel — Stones



    Rashford — Mbuemo — Saka — Foden



    Haaland — Jesus — Watkins 



    Areola

    Botman
    
Baldock

    Enciso

    1. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      When are you playing Enciso, and in place of who? Looks like you don't need him.

      1. MT180
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        Very true. I just think he could be good value for 5.5 - would you swap him out for a 4.5 and keep 1 ITB? Not sure where the extra funds would go otherwise. Maybe Stones for Cancelo?

  26. One Man

    Is Steele going to be Brightons first choice ?

    If so I’m surprised he’s not on more RMT’s

    1. Thomas Jerome Newton
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Not in more RMTs as people still asking same question as you.

  27. Ohh1454
    • 6 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    Which duo ?
    A. Jesus and Mbeumo
    B. Wissa and Martinelli

    1. Sparkys Barmy Army
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      A

    2. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      B. Sorry!

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      My question too.
      Likely A in that Jesus doesn't have much competition and Beemo is probably on pens, but B just seems more exciting.

    4. One Man
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I’m on A.

    How's this 343 looking? Botman and Henry to rotate. Salah (c) in GW2

    Pickford
    Shaw Estupinan Botman
    Salah Bruno Saka Mitoma
    Haaland Nkunku Wissa

    4.0 Henry Marvelous Beyer

    1. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      A good job of getting a full squad that manages to squeeze in Salah, I have to say.

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      Done pretty well there while squeezing in Mo and Meatshield.

      Your bench sounds like a Victorian boxer.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      But will this make any difference? Perhaps make him not a "fit and proper" person?

      It is not football related and it is not something that he has gained from, rather that he has "helped" others.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years

        No expert here, but it looks like the kind of thing that drags through courts for years. The old duffer will be dead before he's handed out a punishment. That will still be sooner than City's case is decided, mind.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 6 Years
          8 months, 22 days ago

          Quite. It is hardly cynically circumventing FFP, flogging homosexuals or modern slavery.

      2. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 22 days ago

        I understand he transferred his interests to a Trust just before this happened so there’s a good chance that this will have no bearing on the club although you’d thought it would be at least unsettling

  29. Sparkys Barmy Army
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 22 days ago

    About settled for now I think

    Onana (Darlow)
    TAA - Saliba - Botman (Bell, Lamptey)
    Rash - Saka - Martinelli - Mbeumo - Eze
    Haaland - Watkins (Muniz)

    Want to shoehorn Salah in somehow but can't make it work without sacrificing too much

    1. Jimbo74
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 22 days ago

      I know what you mean. Not worth it IMO if you're only going to captain him in the odd game.
