    Really hoping I don’t need to take a -4 already to take our Maddison after only getting him last week for a blank and injury…

    If he is out I have no bench and need to start Botman v Liverpool

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Nothing wrong in playing Botman at home to Liverpool +4 points.

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        This, I'd just play Botman

    2. Sheffield Wednesday
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      It's why you have Botman rather than a 4m defender in your squad - to cover this sort of eventuality. Botman got me 5 points GW1 against Villa and only conceded one goal away to City. Don't be too quick to write him off at home.

    Did the benching question get answered yet

    Bench

    A: Saliba h Fulham
    B: Gusto h Luton
    C: Estu h West Ham

    Want to play Pedro and Watkins

    1. The Tinkerman
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Probably A? Less goal threat and Fulham have a better attack than Luton, so less clean sheet chance than B.

      1. Ra Ra Ra
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Thanks. Yeh currently on A.

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      B

      1. Ra Ra Ra
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Definitely considering. I have Chilwell.

        Chelsea always disappoint me in FPL which is putting me off the double up.

    3. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Is a Gusto 1-pt cameo a concern? Would be for me

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        I certainly wouldn't bench Estupinan at home. Way too many routes to points there

      2. Ra Ra Ra
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Yeh good point. Gusto goes to the bench.

  3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    GTG?

    Pickford
    Estu Chill Henry
    Mitoma Saka Salah Rash Mbuemo
    Pedro Erling(c)

    Bench: Turner Beyer Mubama Baldock
    0 FT, 1.4m ITB

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I have the exact same team but Mings instead of Beyer, and 0.9m ITB + 1FT!

      1. The Count of Monte Cristo
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        I'm looking at Foden / Alvarez / Jackson but can't really get to any of them this week without taking a hit. I want to give Rashford this GW, but City's fixture(s) look so tempting.

        1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
          • 10 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Yeah, need at least one more city but my bench can’t muster the roulette

      2. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        I’ll take that as a yes 🙂

        1. The Count of Monte Cristo
          • 11 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Yes I think it's fine to hold. Not seeing any clear pathways to improving so I think I would go as it is and get another week of information.

    2. Totalfootball
      • 7 Years

      Looks Fine
      what move did you make ?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Cheers! Gabriel to Henry

    3. Ra Ra Ra
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Yeh, don’t think I’d take any hits on this one

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 10 Years

        Cheers

    Bottomed.

    Thoughts on this wildcard?:

    Onana (Areola)
    Saliba, Estupinan, Chilwell (Gusto, Beyer)
    Salah, Saka, Foden, Mbuemo, Diaby
    Haaland, Alvarez (Semenyo)

    0.8 itb

    1. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I wouldn’t bother with Salah on WC. Not the same FPL asset as he once were.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Nice

      Beyer to Henry and you've cracked the gw1 and 2 squad.

      1. GoonerSteve
        • 14 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Ha! You think I'm chasing historical points too much?

        1. Baps hunter
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Really historical, especially with Salah in your team. He is not even certain to play in PL after this weekend.

          1. GoonerSteve
            • 14 Years
            9 months, 8 days ago

            So who would you be looking to get in?

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 8 days ago

          Not necessarily,

          I do like it...

          I just think the perceived wisdom will be somewhat different by gw5.

          Or on Monday!

      2. GoonerSteve
        • 14 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Henry is tempting but I hate having bench decisions.

    Shaw out for lengthy period. Muscle injury

      Not happy with it, but it does save me a benching issue this week

    Crazy to play Turner (mun) ahead of Johnstone (bre)?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Not crazy, but I'd go Johnstone,

    2. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      No

      1. Egg noodle

        Thanks all. I'm up for a gamble, will stick to Turner, cheers

    3. Ra Ra Ra
      • 4 Years

      Not crazy. I’m playing Turner.

        Good luck!

  7. Sanchit

    RMWCT

    Flekken Turner
    Chilwell Estu Henry Gusto Trippier
    Saka Mbeumo Foden Rashford Nakamba
    Haaland Alvarez Jackson

    Nakamba to be benched every week.
    Trippier to replace Gusto in starting 11 after 2 weeks.
    Henry on bench whenever he doesn't have a very solid fixture.

    Any suggestions please? What would your midfield be on a WC?

    1. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Looks pretty standard - ie: pretty good!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Prefer the one above.

      I think the £ in midfield rather than defence/ Trippier.

    3. adam wigan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      I like the trippier pick. His baseline bonus has been high for the first 2 games. Once his fixtures get better I imagine he will be back to clean sheets and 3 bonus points again

  8. abaalan
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Any update on Enciso? Worth keeping Joao Pedro if he is out?

    1. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      The update I saw this morning was that there are fears he'll be out for the whole season

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        I've heard that too, so I think it's more than rumours.

        The national team confirmed an injury too.

  9. Snake Juice
    • 7 Years

    Luke Shaw with a major injury

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Another one bites the dust.

  10. CoracAld2831
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Please choose a move for GW3:

    (2ft, 0,0m)

    A: Gabriel -> Colwill & roll
    B: Shaw-> Colwill & roll
    C: Shaw, Pedro -> Gusto, Jackson
    D: Gabriel, Pedro -> Gusto, Wissa

    (I already have Chilwell, 3 ARS, 3 MUN & 3 MCI)

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      B if it's true.

      C

  11. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Would you WC this? Already used my FT to shift Gabriel now looking like Madders won't play.. Maddison > Foden for a -4?

    Or hit the WC..

    Pickford
    Estup - Chilwell - Colwill
    Salah - Saka - Bruno - Diaby - Maddison
    Haaland (c) - Joao Pedro

    Turner - Romero - Beyer - Mubama

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      No reason to WC yet. -4 is nothing. Different story if you needed to take at least -12 and change some other players also.

  12. It’s gonna Ben Mee
    • 10 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    James injured and now Shaw. Don’t you even dare, Chilwell.

    1. el polako

      It's a question of when? Not if?

      1. It’s gonna Ben Mee

      Rotten luck mate - both looked great options pre-GW1.

  14. Snake Juice

    Saka against Dalot in 2 weeks

    A. Richarlison to Foden -4
    B. Edouard to Jackson -4
    C. A & B -8
    D. Richarlison to Sterling -4
    E. Richarlison to Alvarez -4
    F. D & E -8

        Saw the Shaw news just after I posted!!!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      A and play Cash if Shaw is kaput.

      Or do Edouard to Watkins or Isak.

    3. It’s gonna Ben Mee
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      H. Play Cash and don’t take hits

    4. Baps hunter

      What's the problem with Richa vs Bou?!?

      1. XX SMICER XX
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Just think Foden outscored Rich over the next 2 GWs

    5. Baps hunter

      How did you plan to do mid to fwd?!?

      1. XX SMICER XX
        • 6 Years
        9 months, 8 days ago

        Good spot, should be Edouard to Alvarez!!

  17. N00B
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years

    I wanted to buy Jackson tonight for Pedro. But now Shaw is out and I still have James.

    Should I keep Pedro and buy Dias now?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      * Dias owners be wary!

    2. Hy liverpool

      Yes.

    3. The Count of Monte Cristo
      • 11 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Yes, solve the bigger issue which is your defence.

  18. AC/DC AFC

    I wonder if anyone want Gabriel to James to Shaw?

    1. Baps hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      ?!?

  19. _Freddo
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Luke Shaw injured.

  20. XX SMICER XX
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Ah, Shaw injured. Moving Gabriel early to save 0.1m has come back to bite me

    1. Egg noodle

      Same!

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      The curse of the £5-5.5m defenders the last 2 weeks.

  21. Kodap
    • 6 Years
    9 months, 8 days ago

    Team's a mess, a good 6/7 players I'd change.. is this WC territory? I had been avoiding it with Pedro more likely to start, but now Salah rumors and Maddison looking likely to miss out too.

    Pickford
    Estup - Chilwell - Colwill
    Salah - Saka - Bruno - Diaby - Maddison
    Haaland (c) - Joao Pedro

    Turner - Romero - Beyer - Mubama

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      No. Start Romero, bench Maddison if only out for 1 gameweek & use your FT to upgrade Pedro

      Worst case take -4 and save WC

  22. Egg noodle

    Really struggling to not burn a transfer here... 2FT 0 ITB

    Johnstone Turner
    Chilwell Estu Saliba Udogie Kabore
    Salah Saka Martinelli Mbeumo Chuk
    Haaland Watkins Pedro

    Feel patience is it's own reward so maybe sort Chuk and roll the 2nd one??

    1. XX SMICER XX
      • 6 Years
      9 months, 8 days ago

      Chuk the injured Chelse mid?
      If so get rid?

      Henderson maybe going to Palace so Johnstone minutes at risk

  25. Silecro
    • 6 Years

    Start

    A) Gabriel vs Ful
    B) Pinnock vs Cry

    1. Snake Juice
      • 7 Years

      Gabriel

    2. XX SMICER XX

      A

      Previously played on the left. Likely eat into Grealish / Foden game time

  27. Hazz

    Almost every semi-popular defender pick aside has been shafted!

    Maddison > Foden worth a -4?

      Depends on your bench. I wouldn't want to be making hits this early unless in a complete mess.

        Current team is this, either just keep madders and play Romero, or do a full WC and get shut of all the players im not keen on.

        Pickford
        Estup - Chilwell - Colwill
        Salah - Saka - Bruno - Diaby - Maddison
        Haaland (c) - Joao Pedro

        Turner - Romero - Beyer - Mubama

      Luke Shaw has suffered a muscular injury + is expected to be sidelined for an extended period. Assessments ongoing in hope 28yo left-back will miss weeks rather than months. Blow to Man Utd & England before Euro qualifiers @TheAthleticFC #MUFC #EURO2024
