    Full strength Villa lineup against Hibernian in the Conference League.

      Could be seen as overkill, but Emery's in it to win it, and at this stage the extra game gives more match fitness to players. I'm sure there'll be a raft of early subs too.

      They will get the job done tonight and field a second team next week. It kind of makes sense.

      Europe is their priority, Emery loves that competition

      also with the injuries / more experienced youth being farmed out there aren't loads of options to rotate and keep a strong squad

      expect a few more incomings for us in window now bringing in cash for Ramsey/Archr etc

    Hold onto/Vote 4 Pedro!

    "It is being reported that Julio Enciso has suffered a serious knee injury in Brighton training this week — with other reports claiming he has been seen on crutches this afternoon."

      Uhhh, muggings here sold JP to beat the price drop. Classic FPL faux pas 🙁

        Did you not have him in GW1? Wouldn't have lost value as he was 5.6

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

          It was a double transfer to get Foden, left 0.0 itb.

      Same dilemma

  3. No_Mo_Salah?

    March or Mitoma?

    1. Arteta
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      March and Mitoma are equally good long-term picks. Choose one and stick with him.

    2. FOO FIGHTER

      I wonder if there would be any objection to owning both?

      1. M2.0
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        I’m on both. The Enciso injury secures Mitoma’s minutes a but more as De Zerbi has deployed Enciso on the left before.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Have Mitoma and Estupinan lime most but also considering adding March for the triple. All three of them are blazing.

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years

            *like

      fixtures not great GWs 4-5-8-9

  4. Cojones of Destiny
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    who’d you bench (one)
    a. Diaz vs New
    b. Eze vs Bre
    c. JP vs WHU

  5. PartyTime

    Pull the trigger on Pedro or hold?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Many have already moved him on to the likes of Wissa, Alvarez or Jackson.

      Take your pick or hold I guess.

      1. PartyTime
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Lol… thanks huh but would you hold or move?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          I took a hit and moved him to Alvarez. What is the worst that can happen? 1 point cameo or a start from Pedro or Alvarez getting stuck in at SHU?

          Either way, Pedro is not nailed so if you want to hold another week, not going to change that he is not nailed yet.

            Woah, defensive...

            I would hold for at least this week, Party. A long-term injury to Enciso would very likely mean Pedro starts the vast majority of games (with maybe an occasional rotation to play Lallana / Welbeck 10, Ferguson 9)

            1. PartyTime
              • 2 Years
              9 months, 9 days ago

              Tough decision

          2. PartyTime
            • 2 Years
            9 months, 9 days ago

            Alvarez isn’t nailed either but should do well. Worst case scenario, Pedro scores a brace from the pen spot.

            Would you sell him for a hit?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 4 Years
              9 months, 9 days ago

              If Pedro was nailed, I would have kept him. I got him in on my WC last week including Maddison. Pedro cameo and Maddison doubt.

              Reminds me of bringing in Darwin last season on WC GW2 if memory serves me correct and him getting a red. That is just my luck when it comes to WC's 🙂

      • 5 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Most have other fires to put out and he is expected to start if the Enciso news is true... I personally am holding for one more GW then moving to Alvarez

      1. PartyTime
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Thanks. I might keep for 1 gw too

    Reading that United might be paying €5m for the NK Kustošija keeper. Kid is US born but family are Croatian. Despite living up the road from their ground for 5 years I can't say I know.much about the team. They did open a restaurant as part of their big renovation though.

    A boozy trip to NK Trešnjevka is on the cards for Saturday. 3rd division action at its best.

      Still concerning, but among starters...Evans Hannibal McTominay Martial DVB Pellistri A.Fernandez

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Might just show what we already know...Martial stinks lol

        SELL ............ next G week

    4. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years

      Bruno started in the game too, doesn't look good at all for him this season

      1. mattyb09
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Have seen Alvaro Fernandez. Where have you seen Bruno?

      2. lilmessipran
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        I think it was Alvaro Fernandez who started not Bruno

        Fearmongering

  8. M2.0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    a) Saka + Wissa
    b) Mbeumo + Nketiah

    1. Debauchy
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      a

  9. Steve The Spud
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    Really not sure to sell pedro or not, thing is even if he starts this week he’s a good bet to move on to Jackson the week after anyway!

    1. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Risky now, one benching already so we know he's not a secure pick

      1. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        He probably starts this week with ensisco news though? Assuming it’s confirmed he’s got a knock

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

          If Enciso is out, Pedro is very likely to start, and he's on pens. I'm kicking myself for going early and selling JP for Jackson.

    2. Debauchy
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      If you have a semi decent one on the bench I would play him , that said bringing Jackson in with Pedro first sub.

  10. Kane Train
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    Kyle Walker chances of starting?

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

      Really depends on whether Stones is fit.

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Tough to say...
      -On one hand, he is captaining the squad and has been playing well.
      -On the other hand: Pep talked about wanting to get Rico some playing time, Stones will be back after the IB and would not be surprised in the least if we saw a back 4 of Akanji Gvardiol Dias Ake

  11. M2.0
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 9 days ago

    How well has Mbeumo actually been playing in open play?

    1. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 9 days ago

      He was decent against spurs all be it missed some good chances

      At the end of the day a lot of the views are warped by penalties

      He’s had 2 already, in the next 2 game weeks someone like Bruno could have 2 and all of a sudden he’s back in favour

      Definitely a good buy but wouldn’t expect him to keep banging them in

    2. Unliklinho
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      XG says he is underperforming atm. He has three goals anyway.

    Bernardo and Doku are in training and will be available for the weekend.

  13. Barnaby Wilde
      9 months, 9 days ago

      Best replacement for Maddison?

      A) Mbuemo
      B) Eze
      C) Sterling
      D) None - Keep Maddison

      Evening all just a quickie Pedro to Alvarez or Martinelli to Foden or both for a hit, thanks in advance

      1. K4pril
        • 2 Years
        9 months, 9 days ago

        Foden owner here... I curse myself every day for going this way.

        Pep roulette is crazy, I am even worried that since Haaland had few bad games he could be benched and since Alvarez plays well he could start...

        Pep always says that there is no nailed players they gotta earn it...

        1. Jack Burton
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years

          I know I reckon Foden is going to do well next few, good luck anyway

              9 months, 9 days ago

              I’m sure newcastle will play all out after last week loosing from city. They will also play at the last match of the week and got a home game advantage

            Surely you would want some chelsea on a wildcard with their fixtures? Especially Chilwell?

            Isn’t Isak first choice

          6. Bobby Digital
            • 6 Years

            Barnes and Wilson won't start every game

        2. Sheriff
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 9 days ago

          Current team. 1.0 itb. 1ft.

          Johnstone Turner
          Chillwell Shaw Henry Estupi Botman
          Odegaard Saka Martinelli Bruno Rashford
          Haaland Ul-jo Osula.

          Genuinely considering rolling but also feel getting Ederson in for Johnstone would just sort my GK out until a potential wildcard. Goalie transfers are "meh" but think its a set and forget and gets into the MCI CS gravy train.

          Next weeks move would probably be one of Bruno/Rashy to Mbuemo/Foden.

          1. Fish up a tree
            • 2 Years
            9 months, 9 days ago

            Yeah I’m on Ederson as so much money to spread if on a non Salah team

            More or less guaranteed CS every week

          Been deliberating over this for ages, is this good enough for this weekend? Debated a -4 to do Madders > Foden, also been debating hitting an early WC as there's a fair few players I'd shift on WC, but also conscious its very early!

          Pickford
          Estup - Chilwell - Romero - Colwill
          Salah - Saka - Bruno - Diaby - Maddison
          Haaland

          Turner - Joao Pedro - Beyer - Mubama

              • 6 Years
              9 months, 9 days ago

              A lot hahaha, I really can't decide..

                • 3 Years
                9 months, 9 days ago

                I wouldn't do it Kodap, the games not settled yet, the transfer windows still open etc. Everyone had 30 or 40 points last week. Give it another week, see how you feel then.

        5. Berkshire Hafaway-Line
          • 3 Years

          Andre would be a giant signing for Liverpool

          PedrOMG!

          I was going to bench him anyway this week. Could be some nasty bench points(!)

          1. Kodap
            • 6 Years
            9 months, 9 days ago

            have I missed something, what's happened with Pedro haha?

            1. Art Vandelay
              • 13 Years
              9 months, 9 days ago

              Rumours of a knee injury to Enciso - possible meniscus tear.

              1. Kodap
                • 6 Years
                9 months, 9 days ago

                Ooooh, so Pedro may not be quite as much of an issue?

                1. Art Vandelay
                  • 13 Years
                  9 months, 9 days ago

                  That is my hope as I have Maddison and Gabs too, so could avoid a hit if Pedro looks like playing.

                  1. Kodap
                    • 6 Years
                    9 months, 9 days ago

              Yeah seems the sensible play but Akanji is versatile and can play in a number of positions which Pep likes

              I think scoring against anyone gives strikers confidence.

          By the way the Watkins brace was in 33 minutes.

          2 FT, 0.0 ITB

          Onana // Turner
          Chilwell Estupiñán Saliba // Colwill Baldock
          Salah Rashford Saka Mbeumo Mitoma
          Haaland Pedro // Osula

          I’m very happy with my team and this is definitely the quickest I’ve got to £101m in team value. Inclined to hold Rashford for NFO (H); likewise Onana as I might target Ederson. The injury to Enciso tempts me to hold Pedro. Any tips?

          A: Baldock to Kaboré
          B: Colwill and Baldock to Udogie and Gusto
          C: Onana and Colwill to Ederson and Gusto
          D: something else?

          3.5m in the bank, who would you remove to bring in Jackson?

            Hey Menty you must be watching too. Need some advice. Really want Foden but watching the Doku and Bernardo situation closely. Good short term punt?

              I might not be the best person to ask about Foden tbh - past disappointments lend kind of an emotional response to avoid him which isn't great for decision making. I would say he did a pretty good job of filling the creative void left by KDB/Bernardo against Newcastle. His movement was outstanding & he created quite a few chances, even if the final ball wasn't quite precise at times. I don't think Doku is a problem at all at this stage. Most people seem to assume Bernardo replaces Kovacic, although I do think there is some (perhaps smaller) chance that they retain the double pivot & then its 2 from 3 among Bernardo/Foden/Alvarez

                Thanks for the response. I just don’t want Rashy anymore and could do with some money in the bank.
