    0-3 Villa Bailey G Digne A

    When should we consider Digne?

      If he stays at Villa, then I would be happy to have him as a rotation option. Problem is, he may still leave Villa.

      ... I don't think I can touch that man again regardless. (Title of your s*x tape...)

    Doku is very injury prone and it will take him at least 3 months to adapt.

    He only started 18 out of 78 Ligue 1 matches due to injury.

    Pre season Pep started BSilva on the right and Álvarez behind Haaland.

    Alvarez was Cities second highest goalscorer last season.

    Maybe Alvarez will be Peps new tactical change this season.

      Where did Foden fit into this system?

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Foden was mostly used as a sub in PS and started 1 game on the RW.

      You can't trust what Pep says, never.

        Good job I haven't posted any of Peps comments 🙂

      Wasn't Haaland supposed to be an injury magnet too?

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Have you checked Dokus injury record?

        Probably not.

      In my opinion, Alvarez is their second-best attacker and would be the main striker and lead the line for every club in the Premier League, bar City. He will be very important for them in all competitions, and I expect him to get similar minutes as Haaland.

      Fun fact: I remember before he went there, United were interested in him and linked with him. Rangnick wanted Alvarez, Diaz, or Vlahovic, but they stuck with the old guard (Ronaldo, Cavani, Martial, and Rashford). I don't know why they didn't want to pay £20 million when they were regularly spending more money on worse players every transfer window. Their board is slowly but surely killing the club.

    I've been charged a subscription membership fee of £17.50, taken from my bank today despite me specifically choosing not to renew. I even checked last month and checked again just now. The membership ended July 2023 so why have I been charged? I haven't received any email, receipt or any notice of this charge. Can someone please look into this for me? Thanks. Oh and others that didn't renew might want to check their bank accounts today.

      Did you inform them you didn't want to renew? If not, it auto-renews. Many have had this issue over the last year or so.

      1. Jay_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Yes. It's still set to not auto-renew now:

        Subscription

        Your subscription will expire on Wednesday, July 12, 2023 and will not renew further. Access and billing will end on this date.

        1. Now I'm Panicking
          • 9 Years

          That's worrying - especially (as the poster above says) your membership icon isn't showing.

        FFS don't comment, especially online, in a public forum.

        There have been 2 posts of this nature that I've see today and many before. I think FFS owe it to members and potential members to be more transparent on their renewal policy. I agree we should all read the small-print and accord with 'buyer beware', but there seems to be cause for concern.

        Comment in the comments section perhaps?

      In America, a trip with two kids to McDonalds for some fake meat, mummified French fries, and diabetes inducing Coca Cola ... costs 17.50

      What can man eat in Britain for 17.50?

    Digne is a trap I will never fall in to again but be my guest folks.

        Nice! Yeah I remember you were the only other one talking up Digne after Newcastle. I stuck with Gabriel 🙁

      After falling for Reece James again, I’m never going near Digne.

      Its too late now anyway. Sounds like he's off on loan & Moreno is close to a return

      I've always been burned by Digne

      But at 4.5, he's finally priced right.

      1. Feanor
        • 14 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        I had Cash this week and he barely got the ball in attacking areas, while Digne was whipping in balls all day.

        Price is right for one epic final burn if you want to get him now?

    Julio Enciso suffered knee injury, also Paraguay statement confirms: “Enciso has suffered trauma to his left knee, in one of his club's training sessions”.

    “He is being assisted and evaluated by the Brighton medical team”, statement reported by @RobertoRojas97.

    Do you think Cash benching tonight might mean he may not play at the weekend too?

    Surprised as thought he was great vs Everton.

    1. MrMartini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 28 days ago

      I hope it could be just wary with him after injuries etc last season to 3 games in a risk or to give diego carlos some mins alongside torres. Hopefully not another doing the cb at rb thing like chelsea and digne being wing back/winger like chilwell. Id imagine cash comes back in though.

      1. BIG BOY BRUNO

      Such a demanding role that we'll soon be seeing 2 substitutions, 3 RBs per game?

      1. Milk, 1 Šuker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Maybe. At least Williams and Aina can play left back if needed

  10. 1justlookin
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    If we assume B.Silva gets his spot back, where does this leave Foden and Alvarez?
    Do we think its 2 from 3 between Alvarez, Foden and Kovacic?

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Foden on the bench

    2. BIG BOY BRUNO
      • 7 Years

      They will just rotate as they have done for 5+ years

    3. N00B
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      That's my afraid with Alvarez

    4. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Bilva was just ill so will be intersting to see how this pans out but I went Alvarez anyway. Just feels right.

    5. K4pril
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      It's never that simple with pep...

      He complained how Grealish is performing hence foden been playing on left where he's horrible.
      He always says there is no nailed players you gotta earn your spot - haaland plays somehow rubbish so Alvarez could earn his spot by now.

      Bsilva could play in middle and on right. But what about Palmer and Doku?

      So many questions never enough answers hahhaa

    6. F4L
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      add palmer to the mix, he has to get gametime this season if City want to keep him or he'll leave

    7. _Freddo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Surely Kovacic drops out, doubt he’s needed with Rodri for this nice run of fixs.

  11. N00B
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    Joao Pedro owners:
    A) you will keep him if Enciso is injured
    B) sell him for Alvarez
    C) sell him for Jackson

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Enciso's knee is buggered.

    2. PartyTime

      A

    3. Maeki2
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Pedro on pens and is nailed on one of the best teams so far

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Now with Enciso out, I may add March to accompany Mitoma and Estupinan.

      2. sirmorbach
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        I am keeping, but he's not nailed though, is he?

    4. gart888
      • 9 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      I sold him last night otherwise would have been priced out of Alvarez. Mild regret.

    5. RICICLE
      • 1 Year

      I’d still move on, players with much better fixtures

  12. nanxun
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    Having a difficult time deciding on a move for GW3. Have 2 fts, and need to use at least 1.

    GK switch (Pickford > Flekken) for GW3? Or may just Watkins > Jackson one week earlier than planned (GW3)?

    Possible moves for GW4:
    -Watkins > Jackson
    -an under-performing midfielder > Foden or Mbeumo
    -a defender > Gvardiol?

    Pickford
    Chilwell - Saliba - Estupinan
    Saka - Martinelli - Bruno - Rashford - Mitoma
    Watkins - Haaland

    Turner - Henry - Beyer - Archer

    1. Pedersen
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Fix Pickford and fix ManU after next gw (depending on game I would do Bruno to mbeuma)

      1. nanxun
        • 2 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        Thx for the feedback. Much appreciated.

        Yeah, moving off Pickford this week (GW3) definitely feels like a bit of a "luxury move" ... just so I don't burn a free transfer. That's why I was considering shifting Watkins out for Jackson or J. Alvarez instead. Will have to think about it more .....

    2. MrMartini
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Similar boat with pickford. Flekken seems obvious replacement but ill probably give him wolves, sheff utd, turner in vs burnley when everton play arsenal then after brentford they everton have luton and burnley so im debated if flekken massively outscores pickford over the 5 games id play pickford in but he is on borrowed time for sure. Should have kept clean sheet vs fulham though tbf.

      1. tricpic
        • 14 Years
        8 months, 28 days ago

        I think all the 4.5 keepers are much of a muchness. Not sure about everyone needing to “fix” Pickford - it’s only been two games. Could easily fluke a pen save next week.

        1. MrMartini
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 28 days ago

          Agreed, dont think theres a huge upside moving off pickford to another 4.5 unless goalshy wolves tank them at goodison then may change my mind on that. Think its possible everton at home keep clean sheets in a couple of Wolves, Luton and Burnley fixtures. Bigger problems to solve in my team tbh.

    Since I have Chilli and Jackson on my FPL team...

    Luton Town is going to smash Chelsea 4-0.

    Not everyone agrees, but Chelsea stinks. They are spending money on players that are clearly not that good. West Ham would beat Chelsea in a Wembly Cup Final with current rosters. Brighton would beat Chelsea in a mythical cup Final.

        Interesting. I thought Nunes looked really good when playing in that attacking / box-to-box role last year for a brief period before he began to be played in different positions after an injury.

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          8 months, 28 days ago

          City will sign one more player, probably an attacking mid as the Paqueta deal fell through.

        2. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years

        Liverpool want Cheick Doucouré, they are holding firm just like with Olise and Chelsea.

    Watkins to Jackson not feeling as good after that hattrick but will probably still go through with it.

    1. RICICLE

      A Watkins hat trick?

      I hate it when my players haul outside the PL

    Little help would be appreciated.
    Team looks like this:
    Onana
    Chillwell / Gabriel / Estupinan (Baldock, Beyer)
    Martinelli / Saka / Rashford / Bruno F. / Mitoma
    Haaland / Watkins
    0.5 ITB, 2FT
    What's better:
    A) Gabriel & Watkins OUT for Gvardiol & Alvarez IN
    B) the same OUT for Disasi & Jackson IN
    C) Only Watkins for Alvarez / Jackson
    D) do nothing

      Just fix Gabriel (but even that is a risk)

    Bench 1?

      Pedro. Hammers are no pushovers even if he does start

  24. Worsle90
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 28 days ago

    How‘s this looking?

    Pickford
    Saliba, Shaw, Estupiñan, Chilwell
    Salah, Rashford, Grealish, Ødegaard, Enzo
    Haaland

    Virginia, João Pedro, Baldock, Mubama

    1. aleksios
      • 8 Years

      Bench Saliba.
      Start Pedro.
      Fine overall.

    Any news on Maddison?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Went for a scan on his foot. No further news yet.

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)

      Paul O'Keefe says it's minor and he might even be in contention for this weekend, although unlikely he'd be risked

    Who would you add to this midfield:?

    Saka Ode Mitoma Mbuemo XXXXX

    A. Diaz
    B. Foden
    C. Someone else up to £7.9m

    1. Worsle90
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Foden

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Diaz, but because I am a biased LFC supporter 🙂

    3. DF
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      C Sterling.
      Just read Ben McAleer in rhe guardian and I'm convinced!

    4. Fish up a tree
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      B for fixtures & form

  27. Connor's Calling
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    If Maddy fit, and 2FT, would you:

    A) Maddy + Gabriel -> Mbeumo + Saliba

    B) Gabriel -> Gvardiol

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      Why would you sell Maddison assuming he is fit?

      I want to buy Maddi, so no

      Woohoo

      Pep roulette, here we go!

        Keeping Alvarez for Fulham then shifting him.

  28. You've got red on you.

    A) Stick with Salah

    B) -4 Salah and Baptiste ---> Foden and Buemo

    C) -4 Salah and J Pedro ---> Foden and Jackson

    1. Old Bull
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 28 days ago

      I’ve just wildcarded and left him out. I’ll do the tricky manoeuvres to bring him back when Liverpool hit those sweeter fixtures

    Is this to be the season that Digne stops trolling us?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years

      Yup when he ends up at Nice...
