    This would be a good time to announce Hojlund.

      "ladies and gentleman, the player no Man U fans had heard of until 2 weeks ago - Hojlund!"

    Could Nketiah be the Salah enabler we have been looking for?

    1. Admiral Benson
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Trossard & Havertz would probably beg to differ

      I think so...

    Chilwell v James
    João Pedro v Evan Ferguson
    Rashford v Mount v Bruno

    Is there a consensus on these guys? I'm so close to completing my tinkering but the above are causing me a headache.

      It seems very easy to me although I don't want any Man U attacker.

      I'd agree with SYD

        I have that trio

  4. Wierzba

      Grealish or Foden? Or maybe unpopular opinion Bernardo

      1. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Foden, Bernardo, Grealish in that order for me

        I’ve gone Bilva
        Less competition

        1. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 23 days ago

          Pep protects Bilva like his only grandchild. He only plays in big games. Poor FPL pick.

          1. Andy_Social
            • 11 Years
            10 months, 23 days ago

            Still too crowded in there - I've leaving Foden out due to that.

            1. Rojo's Modern Life
              • 13 Years
              10 months, 21 days ago

              Without Mahrez, and with Bilva and KDB's minutes being carefully managed, I think this will be a breakout season for Phil

      Chilwell, Estupinan, Gabriel

      Haaland, Watkins, N. Jackson

      Areola, Andersen, Bell, Beyer

      1m itb. Bank or use the funds somewhere?

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 15 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I would keep that 1m in the bank could be extremely useful with prices rises - jumping on Newcastle/Spurs later for example. You could always go Nkuku instead of Jackson either leaving .5 depending on your preference. Or you could go the more 'secure' FPL option Fernandes instead of Foden

        But the team you picked is slightly different to most in that you only have one Brighton though. so that leaves you less of a 'headache' removing Brighton players after gw3. With less need for the Cash to switch.

        At the same time you already have Chelsea covered well in advance of gw3 - you can 'relax' on that team while others are panicking

        Your starting team looks extremely solid overall.

        1. We Go Again
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Thank you. I was originally on Nkunku but waiting to see news on his injury, so I made the switch to Jackson.

        2. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          There's no panic in making early transfer. Invest in hot bandwagons for growing team value. Points hits have the longest possible runway to pay off. I'd say unless you hit gold (top 100k) in gw1, point hits are more sensible than not.

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I like it. Very similar to my current draft. Only differences are Nkunku over Jackson and space for a 4.5 defender instead of 2 x 4.0.

        For my draft, I'm still debating keepers, Foden v 6.5 mid and also keeping an eye on news about Nkunku.

        1. We Go Again
          • 9 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Thanks. I was debating on spending a little on a 4.5 defender but not sure on which one to get.

          The 6.5m bracket is definitely an interesting one. I'm planning to start with Foden and then if I'm not happy with him to downgrade to the best 6.5m that emerges after the first few GW

          1. Hairy Potter
            • 9 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            Yeah, I was thinking of Tarkowski or a Palace defender then jumping on Botman later. I haven't really looked into what GW I might want bench one of the main three defs.

            Sounds a plan with Foden. I may go Mitoma and keep 1.0 ITB for my draft.

      3. Rojo's Modern Life
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 23 days ago

        Mart to Odegaard, simples

    • dshv
      • 6 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Onana Mbeumo -> pickford foden?

      1. Holmes
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Nah, both are downgrades

        1. dshv
          • 6 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          What about rashford to bruno and mbeumo to foden ?

          1. Holmes
            • 10 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            Not a fan of Foden tbh

            1. Rojo's Modern Life
              • 13 Years
              10 months, 23 days ago

              Short sighted. His minutes and output will go through the roof this year. Brentford are a non-event without toney.

              1. Andy_Social
                • 11 Years
                10 months, 23 days ago

                Foden? Bilva's presence is keeping Phil out of my squad.

    • Ribus
      • 10 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Bruno the better pick over Rashford?

      1. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Nothing in it really.

        Bruno on pens and has a proper CF to aim at which should yield more assists.

        Rashford will play some games as CF as we bed Hojlund in.

      2. Needo22
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Coin toss I reckon. Both good picks. Probably more upside with Rash but depends what you can do with that 0.5m

      3. DARE TO BISCAN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Depends

      Pickford
      Chilwell gab stones
      Martinelli saka mitoma eze bruno
      Haaland watkins

      Subs areola pau baldock mubama

      Seems like way more balance without salah

      1. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
        • 15 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        The Pau/Eze picks offer very good rotation - I think it makes that team - shrewd. While also having many popular picks as well.

        Be careful on Areola though - if he does not start early on could lose value. That is my only quibble with it.

        1. Letsgo!
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Yeah but i still think areola start

    • Malinwa
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Best option?
      A) Mitoma + Diaby
      B) Bruno + Nakamba

      Onana (Areola)
      Gabriel - Estu - Stones - Chilwell - Kaboré
      Saka - Foden - Rash - X - X
      Haaland - Watkins - Jpedro

    • pundit of punts
      • 11 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Pretty set on this draft. RMT please…

      Ederson
      Chilwell - Shaw - Gabriel
      Rashford - Son - Saka - Foden - Mitoma
      Haaland - Nkunku

      Areola - Mubama - Kabore - Beyer

      I know about the Nkunku injury and I think he’ll be fit for gw 1 from what I’ve read.

      Only dilemma is whether to start with Martinelli and Estupinan over Son and Chilwell and then get both in gw 3 with 2 FTs.

      1. Coaly
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Prefer Mart Estu personally

      2. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Not a fan on Ederson at all. Would honestly have any keeper ahead of him, he burned me so bad last year 🙁 Other than that the team looks good. Like the Son pick and thinking about it my self too

      3. MissouriMarten
        • 8 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I'd worry as much about rotation/reduced minutes as injury with Nkunku. Particularly with that bench.

        1. pundit of punts
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Everyone in that starting eleven is nailed

          1. MissouriMarten
            • 8 Years
            10 months, 24 days ago

            With that kind of certainty you don't need any RMT input.

          2. Rojo's Modern Life
            • 13 Years
            10 months, 21 days ago

            No one is nailed at this point

    • Andrew
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Thoughts guys?

      Onana (Areola)
      Estu Botman Henry (Trusty Beyer)
      Salah Saka Rashford Bruno Eze
      Haaland Nketiah (Semenyo)

      1. Coaly
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Salah to Bruno and sort out defence and Nket

      2. SpaceCadet
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Rashford > mitoma and upgrade defence

        1. aapoman
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          This! I would also try to upgrade Nketiah. if possible

      3. Rojo's Modern Life
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 21 days ago

        Nket is sacrilege when there's Watkins and Jackson/Nkunku at such good price points

    • Athletic Nasherbo
      • 7 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      On this. Pretty happy.

      Onana
      James Chilwell Saliba Estupinan
      Salah Saka Martinelli
      Haaland Wilson J.Pedro

      Bentley Anderson Pau Nakamba

      1. Count of Monte Hristo
        • 11 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Looks great, Wilson over Isak a no brainer because of pens?

        Saliba over Gabriel a close call for you?

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Wilson all day for me. The one that gets the goals and has proven that over several years.

          Prefer Saliba; think he’s a better player but it’s a close call.

      2. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Think it needs Bruno or Rashford but other than that looks decent

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Fair. I don’t like how United have looked in pre-season,though.

          Rashford has been non-existent and Bruno is…well Bruno.

          1. Rojo's Modern Life
            • 13 Years
            10 months, 21 days ago

            Rashford scored in their last game. You think pedigree players like him are going full tilt in preseason? He's got nothing to prove to anyone.

      3. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Honestly. Not keen. Two Chelsea defenders is risky with their injury record and no idea how the back 4 will go.

        Lots of money tied up in Salah who has been playing quite wide and taking fewer shots in pre-season.

        Obvious Xmins risk with Wilson and Joao Pedro.

        Could be an early wildcard….

        1. Athletic Nasherbo
          • 7 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          James is a risk for sure, Chilwell less so right now. Looks physically fit, and I don’t think anyone has seen him at this level before. Happy with Pau to come in and Gusto is 4.0m if James gets injured.

          It’s not tied up in Salah because I can literally move to any player in the game. Again, Salah has looked good pre-season!

          Not really concerned about Wilson; don’t see why he wouldn’t start. J.Pedro is fair.

          Definitely isn’t an early wildcard, just is a bit riskier than other teams and I think a bit of risk is how I want to play the game.

    • El Muñeco
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      I think it's Trossard who will come in Jesus's place.

      Nketiah does not have the quality required and Trossard showed up really well at the end of last season. £1m cheaper than Martinelli and if he starts against City, which I expect, will be straight in the team.

    • Nickyboy
      • 13 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Any love for having both James and Chilwell?

      1. The FPL Units
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yes if fit

      2. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah but not at the start. Start with Chilwell and get James as well gw3 if fit

      3. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        One’s enough. Too risky to have both with their injury records and we still don’t know if Chelsea will be able to keep a clean sheet as a back 4

      4. Holmes
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        wouldnt even like having one.

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        looks good. Personally would rather have Odegaard over Foden cause I like my players nailed.

        1. Rupert The Horse
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Jesus is out at the start.

      2. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Quite like it. Still think Gakpo starts over Darwin. Would drop him down to Joao Pedro and upgrade Baptiste to Martinelli

        1. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Doubtful. Think Darwin will be the main man this year.

    • Admiral Benson

      • 3 Years
      10 months, 24 days ago

      Seeing lots of Watkins, Darwin & Jackson in teams with the Jesus news and doubts over Nkunku.

      Hardly a single mention of Alvarez. If he starts on Sunday, got to be worth a punt at £6.5m right?

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah and since they have the first game of the season on Friday you can even try to wait for leaks. Of course the site can crash though...

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Yeah that could work for a few weeks til KDB is fit. Could also be an option as Nkunku placeholder

      3. Nickyboy
        • 13 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I've switched Jesus to Watkins.

        At the same time I was looking into Watkins I started reading up on Diaby and he looks really good, so brought him in too.

        1. Rojo's Modern Life
          • 13 Years
          10 months, 21 days ago

          Double villa attack is overkill with their fixture list

      4. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        There's time for a late preseason bandwagon. It will likely be based on the Man City lineup this weekend.

        It's been a slow week for new toys, with most content creators pushing John Stones. Next week should be more exciting.

          Agreed.

          Nice job on the Newcastle piece by the way. Enjoyed the article

      Double Arsenal Mids or double united mids ?

      1. aapoman
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I'm thinking about having double ups on both teams... Just depends if I'm #GoSalah or #NoSalah

      2. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        I'd go for the team that scored significantly more goals last season.

      3. ZimZalabim
        • 7 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        double united would be more secure considering ur going for Rash and Bruno

        with Arsenal Saka plus one is a bit more dicey with which one to go for and how nailed they are, if you can nail the arsenal one then u can save a bit of cash and potentially outscore the united pair

        10 months, 24 days ago

        Looks good! Considering a similar team. Only thing that kind of puts me off is having Salah v Chilwell on the first gameweek of the season which I know might be a bit stupid to think about

        1. SpaceCadet
          • 10 Years
          10 months, 24 days ago

          Think both teams score but Chilwell could be good for an attacking return too.

          Loads of space behind the advancing Chilwell for Salah to exploit

      Thoughts on how nailed Wissa is?

      1. Holmes
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        good enough for 3 out of 4 games.

          Thanks, I'm trying to have a really nailed squad this season (dross aside). He was probably my '11th' player in my latest draft. Another option, as first backup / potential starter, is a 5.5m midfielder and Enciso looks really good for that, but Brighton seem to have so many attacking options not sure he'll pass my 'nailed' test.

            maybe Willian?

            1. Nickyboy
              • 13 Years
              10 months, 24 days ago

              Thanks, I was thinking maybe McNeil as 12th man but EVERTON and apparently he is now an injury doubt anyway.

              Could even go Kluivert at 5.0m but think only as second off the bench, not first.

      2. HuttonDressedasLahm
        • 14 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Nailed I’d say

      3. Admiral Benson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Nailed assuming no further transfer activity

      4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Schade will be a threat to his minutes. How much, hard to be sure

      5. Hairy Potter
        • 9 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        Seemed firmly first choice in the friendlies in the US.

      Ultimate differential team…
      No Saka No Haaland No Estupinan

      Could be gold or bust

      1. Holmes
        • 10 Years
        10 months, 24 days ago

        no estupinan 😀

        No Haaland is problematic. The other two can be covered for.

    • shapply

      13.5 to spend:
      A) Martinelli + Joao Pedro
      B) Mitoma + N. Jackson
      C) Eze + N. Jackson

      1. Admiral Benson

      Thoughts on this team ?

      Onanana (Areloa)
      James Cash Gabriel (Tark Kabore)
      Salah Saka Bruno Mitoma Trossard*
      Haaland Wissa (Mubama)

      I had Buendia in place of Trossard and 1m itb, so could go back to that or another 6 ot 6.5 mid and keep 0.5 or 1m itb.

      will decide based over the next week but thoughts on this lot ?

        Diaby at Villa? Could also go Watkins. Fixtures are pretty reasonable.

        Atleast 6.5 m of the frontline on your bence every week? and goallies that maybe aren't 1st choice. Defenders injury galore. You called it: nailed ?
