    Lewis Hall gone to Palace on loan from Chelsea (will be finished tomorrow).

    4.5 defender playing OOP

      I am the biggest fan of this transfer and waited for it for so long so I could get him. But signing only a day before their match almost certainly means he won't start against Sheffield (where I am sure in their cs) and I must have their defender, so I'll have to go with Andersen. Too bad I can't get Hall later on too because of Andersen, it would be stupid to waste transfer on switching them.

      You are a Palace fan apparently. Do you somehow see him starting in Sheffield anyway?

      Mitchell and Doucure's injuries could help. Although I expect Clyne on LB and Schlupp on DM.

      Also, where do you see him playing - CM or LW?

        Sorry i went to bed after that, my all night was done and i am 51. lol

        The deal should go through today. The delay was Chelseas side, as Hall as a low weekly 3 wage packet. Chelsea were forcing him to sign a 6 years deal before going out on loan. This took another week as Hall wanted a couple of clauses in there as well, so he won't be stuck there until 24, if he never plays

        Palace wanted him ready and would have played in Schlupp's position

    Who’s on pens for Arsenal?

      Saka was last season. Don't think it's changed

        Thanks thought so, wasn’t sure if it was him or Odegaard.

    Better option here?

    A. Onana rash rich
    B. Pickford Bruno martinelli

    Need a Villa defender. Mings, Cash or Pau? They're not a starter but rotation player. Think Pau has the most upside and is a 30M defender I'm sure Emery will use.

      I’ve gone Cash for now, lots of upside. Could easily switch to Botman though when Newcastle’s fixtures turn.

      1. Klopp's Kids

        Think I'll move towards Cash for now! Rotating him with Stones actually!

        1. Bleh
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 16 days ago

          I have both!

            Honestly Konsa might be the Villa defender to own! Can slot in RB when Moreno returns too for Cash, right?

              9 months, 16 days ago

              Interesting news that about Cash. Villa defence looking like a minefield now, especially as they have qualified for Europe. I just need someone at 4.5 who can do a job for the first 3 weeks!

                I'm going to avoid them all until I know.

                Maybe Colwill or Andersen? My defence is Stones, Gabriel & Estu so just wanted cover for Stones

                  Ah, I’m playing 4 at the back so more important for me. Think I might just play it safe/boring with Mings or Konsa then and call it a day. I like the prospect of clean sheets with Martinez between the sticks.

          Information here says avoid all Villa (but Pau?)

          Think I might just pocket the money for now

            I'm not going near anyone as Villa fan until see how we line up first game. I think Mings is most nailed though

            1. Bleh
              • 7 Years
              9 months, 16 days ago

              Lol thanks Kiwi, just gone Cash > Mings to be safe. Worth also noting that Mings more than doubled Cash’s points last season.

            Lol Cash plays RB Moreno LB. Mings not losing spot. This guy is complete clown

    2. Kiwivillan

      Pau hasn't looked great in pre season and played as LB. He might be eased in

    Nakamba or Chukwuemeka?

    The upside worth giving up a Chelsea spot for Chukwuemeka?

    Probably only want him, Jackson and Chilwell at a time max.

    Not really spoken about much but Kane & Trent genuine good options potentially to start the season. Think people don't want to change their teams this late but think of a way to get them in.

    Trent getting a top class DM to support him finally (averaged over 6 points per game during Liverpool's formation change).

    Kane getting an attacking manager with Maddison behind him.

      Nevermind, Kane is gone! One less headache. Just Trent now.

    Thoughts on this draft with Salah please?

    Pickford (Turner)
    Gabriel, Estu, Pinnock (Beyer, Baldock)
    Salah, Saka, Martinelli, Rashford, Richarlison
    Haaland, Pedro (Archer)

    Interesting article and I'm definitely interested to see how these rule changes end up impacting FPL.

    Another permutation that hasn't been discussed above is around defenders being subbed off. While having your attackers subbed off early is not what you want to see, defenders going off early (but after 60mins) could be very useful. When those supposed extra late goals go in, you already have your clean sheet in the bag! So this actually benefits having someone like Reece James. He's likely to be managed due to injuries, therefore could get a lot of early subs and bank his clean sheets. Maybe this will happen a lot more now across the board with the extra time and 5 subs.

    Whichever way it goes, I don't really intend on changing my strategy for now at least. I always wanted to pick largely 90min players anyway.

    A) Stones
    B) Estupinan

    Can afford Stones, just remembered how City love to concede one goal against anyone…

    A) Salah, Richarlison, Pedro (Beyer on bench)
    B) Bruno, Martinelli, Jackson (Chilwell on bench)
