      Ouch, tough benching. I'd probably start Jota

    Anybody keeping and starting Gabriel this week?

    Tomiyasu suspension and Zinchenko back could mean he regains his place. Fulham have no attacking threat and are vulnerable from set plays, increasing his chances of a clean sheet and/or attacking return.

      First on my bench, other fires to fight

      i would if i have him

      All my years of playing FPL have led me to the conclusion that Gabriel is going to haul this weekend.

      1. Saka Rice
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Only if hes on your bench or youve transferred him out. If he starts in your team he wont. That is 100% fact

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          FPLer's fallacy

        2. School of Poch
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          Quite the paradox we'll have here then if I decide to keep him. Maybe I have to sacrifice myself to allow all your moves to work out

          1. x.jim.x
            • 9 Years

            We will remember you brother

      2. School of Poch
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        I'm so tempted to go against the grain and keep him but I have 2FT and don't know where else to use one

        1. Saka Rice
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          Assuming you have a fairly template team, I would get rid of Gabriel if you don't have Pickford, Joao Pedro

          1. School of Poch
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 6 days ago

            You'll laugh but I have both Pickford and Pedro. Pickford has Wolves at home so I like his chances this week and I'd rather transfer Pedro out as part of a double move as no real other options at that price

      Twice burned, got rid … bound to haul.

    5. Better off with a pin and a…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years

      Keeping and playing (benching Pau Torres).

    6. Lallanas Llama
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah keeping and playing him - I'm hoping patience is the winner here and I had other problems to sort first.

    Anyone dislike a particular content creator? In my case its Lets Talk FPL, sometimes he provides good information but I find him always to be so inconclusive and blags on easily....also the way he finishes every single sentence

    "For what its woooooorth"
    " I'm not saying dont bring Salaaaaah, but you never know he could score 2 goals and then everyone's rushing to get hiiiiiiiim"

    1. I Member

      I like him.

      1. Saka Rice
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        so the way he taaaaaaaalks....doesnt annoy youuuuuuu? ok must be me then he literally finishes every sentence like this

        1. KanuLenoMeeMoCash
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          the way you type is more annoying tbh

      Pretty sure all these content creators have one WhatsApp group where they discuss how the FPL season will start and end.

      They all punt the same team with slight changes for each. That is how the template is formed. They say when the first and second WC has to be played and the chip strategies.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Etc etc etc

        This is my struggles with it. I don't mind information being easily accessible but when the masses who aren't actually engaged just do whatever the content creators it functions more like a wave than it used it. By that I mean if a content creator plays their card and it comes off then you know hundreds of thousands (if not more) will do the same play.

          I wish there were separate terms for 2 very different kinds of CCs. The most popular ones are your Andys, Mates, Giannis and many more who just tell you who's hot and who's not with the most cursory of explanations in 15 minute chunks

          The other sort, usually lasting over an hour go deep with data analysis. They don't simply tell you who to get; they provide you with data to help you make up your own mind. These guys put a proper amount of work in and deserve respect.

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

            Agreed and I'm not typically one for stats or stat focused content.

              Nor me thats why i watch FOL Balackbox and Pras is good, so i dnt have to look up th data, and just watch a stream for during the evening

              FPL hub making things worse with an AI

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

                FPL Hub and their AI is by far the worst thing to happen to FPL.

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      i watch Blackbox and Pras on FPL wire (a couple of FFS shows are good)

      Both give you data, so i can just look at the eye test. Haven't watched any this week, will catch up on those too tonight

      Dunno, I don't listen to the creators I don't like.

      Fair play to all of them though, must be fun to make a job out of hobby.

      Usually I don't listen to much content but when I do, I like to listen to the two guys from Planet fpl - they shite at the game but I like their chemistry & how they analyse football.

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        I like "creators" who focus on providing relevant info. Net The Haul is one of the best. I'm going off Blackbox a little this season as Mark and Az are getting too chummy and making about them rather than the data. No offence, but I'm not looking to be their friend although to be fair, if that's what most viewers want then fair play. Maybe it's just me.

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Reminds me of Saint and Greavsie, Much better than Football Focus

    5. Pumpkinhead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      I think he seems like a good person so it's hard to rag on him too much. The only thing that grinds me about him and some other creators is they basically fill the airwaves with the same stuff. So if you watch one you've basically watched them all. I wish there were more content creators who when they say this game is for 'fun' actually played like it is for fun and took soem chances.

      For what it's worth, you don't have to click on his links or watch him.

    C. Keep Pedro and something else maybe?

    1. Bobby Digital

      C get rid of Gabriel and roll

    2. Djoora
      • 3 Years

      Gusto or Henry for Gabriel,play 451 and use 2 transfers some other day...

  5. Bobby Digital
    • 6 Years

    Apparently Salah has given the move the green light. Up to Pool now I guess...

    1. mattyb09

      No chance they let him go

  6. Freshy

    Ive had 3.5 bank from the start (Salah Money)
    Thinking next week Bring in Tripps for Baldock and keeping Mitoma on the bench.
    Forces any Salah move to a situation.
    But I think Im good with it
    Look at me planning a whole week ahead

  7. How I met your Mata
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 6 days ago

    Who to bench?

    A J Pedro
    B Akanji
    C Saliba

    1. Ra Ra Ra
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Same dilemma here.

      Although I'm playing Gvardiol and considering benching Gusto

      Gusto, Saliba or Pedro

      ATM I have Saliba on the bench. But Pedro was there most of the week

      1. Ra Ra Ra
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        I generously predict

        Estu - 9
        Pedro - 8
        Gusto - 6
        City defs - 6
        Saliba - 5

  8. I Member

    9 months, 6 days ago

    How some of the most popular GW2 transfers did:

    - Chilwell 1 point
    - Isak 2 points
    - Joao Pedro 0 points
    - Diaby 3 points
    - Maddison 3 points and injured

    Be wary of chasing points.

      Mbeumo, Bri mids next

      1. Freshy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Did Tross to Mbembo for a winner
        Shaw to Chilly (-4) not so much

      2. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        I think so, this weekend will be lower scoring against Palace, but it was great if you have hi for thse Pens. Thats why you get him, (reason why i got Eze). Mitoma goal was out of this world. Diaby, Eze and Mitoma are better players (maybe FPL wise too), it is the Brentford fixtures

  9. Bleh
    • 7 Years
    9 months, 6 days ago

    Pick one to start:

    A. Saliba - FUL (H)
    B. Henry - CRY (H)

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      B for attacking threat

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 6 Years

      A

    3. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      A BPS

      I benched him for Gusto last week, massive swing.

    4. I Member
      • 8 Years

      A

    5. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      I'd take A

    6. Bleh
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Thanks all, Saliba it is.

      Other defs are Estu - WHU (H) and Chilwell - LUT (H) so definitely playing them.

    Johnstone (Turner)

    A. Salah to Foden and Archer to 1,2,3 (bench Madders if out). https://twitter.com/pokeefe1/status/1693956223656186035
    B Rashford to Foden (play Gusto if Madders is out). Roll other Transfer

    1 Nketiah
    2. Alvarez
    3. Jackson

    * I may reverse Salah to a Diaz/Jota next week (not because of transfer rumours, but my plan was to capt Salah GW2 and sell to free up funds)

    1. Bleh
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      B2.

      1. Crunchie

        • 5 Years

        Thanks, Cant do 1,2 or 3 unless i lose Salah.

    2. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      I think I would marginally lose Salah over Rashford, so A for me. Not that I really would want to go for Foden in either case

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks

        I am stuck on midfielder's long-term fixtures.

        I athink Rashford will go to Liverpool midfielder -next week, I don't fancy Mbeumo this week, or Diaby until later. I think only Mioma is fixture-proof, but they start Europe rotaion (same with Villa), and everyone else.

        I am off Utd until they sort themselves out. Glad i only have one to lose

  11. School of Poch
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 6 days ago

    Aside from Salah who is the most nailed Liverpool mid?

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Diaz i think

      1. Bleh
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        This.

      2. School of Poch
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks, I thought it might be. Considering Salah to Diaz and spreading funds depending on this transfer news

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          I have no idea. Diaz looked great both GW's, and Jota last week, but not great against Chelsea. But Jota might be on pens soon. But i'd still go Diaz atm

          1. KanuLenoMeeMoCash
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 6 days ago

            Jota won't be on pens
            If Salah loses them it will be Macallister or Szoboslai

    2. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Jota.

      1. Bushwhacker
        • 4 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Might be back to a Jota/Gakpo rotation with Endo’s arrival.

  12. Biggsy
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 6 days ago

    2FT and £0.5m ITB but really sure where best to use

    Onana
    Gabriel, Estu, Chilwell
    Salah, Bruno, Saka, Mbeumo, Mitoma
    Joao Pedro, Haaland

    (Turner, Pau, Kabore, Mubama)

    I like the idea of JP to Jackson but need to find £1m for that which probably means losing Salah or Bruno - as much as neither are really thrilling me I'm not sure its the best idea after just 2 games. Would probably be Salah to Diaz and the Mubama to Jackson (benching JP)

    Gabriel to Saliba is on - as much as the £0.3m swing hurts a bit. Or maybe Gabriel to a Spurs def (Udogie, Porro) and pocket some change?

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Pau may be OK this week?

      Another i have had, is go Isak a week early upfront and play Pedro this week.

      I'd sell Salah over Bruno, but then Rashford has been so bad, who can he supply?

      Not sold on Jackson

      1. Biggsy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks, yeah Pau in for Gabriel is an option - which I am kicking myself for not doing this week. Still think Gabriel is worth losing as he clearly isn't nailed enough and just going to lose more value.

        I think hold Bruno because of the underlying stats but Salah is sellable - just feels weirdly like too much money to have spare if I do though

        1. Crunchie
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          It was my intention, but then you just pick the right players/fixtures and not how much they cost.

          Maybe only be one premium in the game soon anyway.

    Any insight about Bernando Silva ? Is he fit ?

      I preferred him with longer hair. I probably still would though.

    Onana
    Gvardiol Estu Chilwell
    Saka Rashford B.Fernandes Eze Mbuemo

    Gusto - Udogie - Mubama

    A) -4 for Mubama to Jackson/Alvarez
    B) GTG

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      Who do you bench with A?

      1. Eightball
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 6 days ago

        Probably J.Pedro. I think he will probably start with Enciso injured but it's still not certain.

        1. Biggsy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 6 days ago

          Not sure i'd take a hit and gamble on him not starting - one return from him and very unlikely Jackson or Alvarez pay off

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 6 days ago

      B

      Gusto will probably outscore Jackson, if you want to reassesw next week. But Alvarez>Jackson

      None

    3. V-2 Schneiderlin

      ooh

      Arsenal won't have to rely on dodgy pens to win games. (Not Johnstone fouling Nketiah, that was clear, but Partey blocking Lerma's run who was marking Nketiah.

      Anyway, makes Martinello/Saka better picks

        I think it's a cumulation of things.

        Rotation is annoying

        The pricing is annoying as it makes the game very easy and pretty much eliminates the need to use players from half the teams.

        But also perhaps just enjoying watching NUFC more. Fantasy used to be an escape because we were so boring to watch. But now whenever I watch a game I'm constantly checking scores, flicking this site open etc. It's taking the enjoyment away from actually watching the football!

          Your team is always above FPL if your team is in the PL.

          I played the Yahoo game (only FPL last 5 years), as it was just better-unlimited transfers.

          But i still like it as i watch more games with added interest.

      I feel the game is a bit boring myself, it's a shame though

      You are giving me a reason to actually complete an FPL season for once without logging off around half way, which is a reuccuring theme for me.

      Chin up!

      it will be if Salah goes.

      One premium.

      Or it could juice this up a bit with so many option, improve benches, play a BB any time you like 🙂

        Imagine if Salah goes and the next week Haaland breaks a leg. We'll all be wildcarding and leaving 10M in the bank.

      The start is always slow imo.

      I started feeling this way recently. Mostly towards the end of last season but has carried over to this season. Be different, trying to win rather than just following the masses has a very small place in this game now (which is not very exciting).

    A. Pedro > Wissa
    B. Roll to next week, likely Rashford > Mbeumo and 4.5 > Isak

      None. Make the assessment after GW3.

    If you would like to buy Joao Pedro, you should wait until tomorrow to make the transfer as it is somewhat likely his price may return to 5.5 million from 5.6 million overnight tonight (British Summer Time).

    Pedro > Jackson for a hit?

    Exact funds but looks like Jackson price rise tonight..
