    I'm so looking forward to Sterling's blank this weekend.
    The owners will probably rage transfer him out for Bowen, after his haul vs. Luton, next week.
    And so it goes ...

      Ahwell at least they will me n Raz in peace

        Yes, they will.

    Salah posted yesterday that he was on his "day off" looking at Egyptian artifacts in a London museum. Day off?

    Yeah, I am not sure but this is kind of weird seeing London is where players and agents meet...

      if he was sold to Saudi I would have the perfect excuse to sell him and get in 3 cheaper players that I really want 🙂
      guess we'll find out soon

      Footballers are allowed days off mate. Your obsession with this move is bizarre.

    Going to wildcard in GW5. Which midfielder or forward is best for a one week punt for 6.4m or less?

    Was thinking Antonio vs Luton as he looked lively vs Brighton.

    1. AC/DC AFC

      Yeah, may as well give Bowen a whirl.

      Gillingham scored twice at Kenilworth Road yesterday.

    Is it madness to captain Mbeumo and not Haaland this weekend?

    1. The Biscuitmen
      • 1 Year
      5 months, 27 days ago

      It's a bold move. Fulham are conceding xGA at an alarming rate

      I say this as someone who has only captained H once so far.
      This week would need some real nerve.
      His sequence of scoring last year 2-0-1-all the hat-tricks.
      His sequence of scoring this year 2-0-1... Fulham next.

      I think I'm going for Maddison. Fie to your sequences! And your 3 week sample stats that ignore the influence of the mighty Palhinha!

      1. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 27 days ago

        Palhinha is a good point but I still fancy City to lay down a marker. Arsenal still got 3.23 xg at home with JP playing.

        1. The Mentaculus
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Yeah but I think that's kind of inevitable when you take an early lead at Emirates & then spend most of the game protecting it..? Was watching that game & I think it just reinforced my opinion on what a difference Palhinha makes. I should probably catch up on the City game before I commit though but I just don't see them rolling teams over at the moment

          1. x.jim.x
            • 9 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            To be fair, the game was always going to go that way even without the early goal, so you'd expect City to do the same. Haaland could have easily had a hat-trick against Blades, even if City looked disjointed at times. I could easily see it being a tight game for the first 25 minutes or so, then a lapse in concentration opens the floodgates.

            They also seem to get dodgy penalties every other week, but that's another story...

              Ok, duly warned. I'll catch up on City v SHU & think on it further

  5. MetallicaJack93

      Wildcard draft - any thoughts? Too template is fine, lots of my competition are not too template.

      Ederson (Areola)
      Chilwell Gusto Udogie (Cash Andersen)
      Saka Maddison Sterling Mbeumo Bowen
      Haaland Wissa (Osula)

      Not sure if I want to keep Saka but likely too damaging not to have
      Not sure if I want double Brentford attack (the rest of my midfield is a good representation of teams - who would you get in instead of Wissa, money not an issue)
      Defence look okay?

      Thanks

        5 months, 27 days ago

        Gusto?
        It looks more like a free hit team than a wildcard one would be my critique.

        1. MetallicaJack93
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Which players would you suggest to rethink?

        2. Taribo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Very similar to mine. I have Gvardiol, Cash, Jackson over Gusto, Anderson, Osula.

          Considering Bruno over Mbeumo. Have exact funds.

        3. HadiSLIM

          My 2 cents:

          ASSUMING NO MONEY IN THE BANK LEFT

          1) I would certainly pop in a Foden for their run -
          you know how he has a couple green patches every year?
          Now's his, he's their only creative outlet, Pep spoke him up, and - Pep's city have a history of solid 11 for the first 7-9 GWs before his roulette starts. Not that Foden has any replacement anyway with KDB out.
          he did block me from Cash coming off the bench last week though 😀

          2) Also - the back 6 you have, well apart from Matty Cash, they ALL face a fixture swing at around GW 10 -whats ur plan then? you dont wana be spending transfers on defense, when everyone else is playing the forward hokey switches and upside chasing
          Try to build a back 5 rotating pair up until GW 15 - u want a set and forget rotating 5

          3) Also, a Saka to Foden would not only enable the above 2 points at the same time, but might also get u a third striker for bench options when Bowen has (and he does have) horrible fixtures from 5-9 - unless u plan on a 442 then.
          Do you want a 442? have you considered WHEN a 442 will clash with a 352? (ie on the same week ull have both options viable or both options horrible) - in other words, try to find rotating formations when theirs a need.
          I own Saka but without Jesus fully fit and firing, that's hurt me owning him and martinelli big time. his points per million are very abysmal.
          Also, the constant change of LB at arsenal, always changes where/when/how he'll receive the ball, making him less effective.
          HOWEVER (1 drawback), that will mean sacrificing ur only cashcow - and reconsolidating your funds later might prove hard - but who do you realistically want then who are between the 8-10 price point? Son? Saka? Rash? Bruno? Ode? not many options
          All wait and see IMO

          tip: gw 7/8, a Wisa to an Awoniyi switch looks scrumptious and on time, OR a Mbuemo to a Gibbs white.

          - open up an excel sheet, and plan ur team for the next 10 Gws, see how it looks, think of flexibility vs exit strategies.

          Conclusion: there is no right or wrong strategy, but the very least is KNOWING what your strategy is like the back of your hand, this gives you a clear picture of how to upscale/downscale or move sideways when the need comes.

          @Fabrizio Romano

          Understand Tottenham are now in contact with Barca to negotiate for Ansu Fati deal on loan until June 2024

          Why are so many people playing their precious wildcard in the final week that the transfer window is open?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            The double Arsenal and UTD midfields probably what broke the camel's back.

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              And Sterling plus Maddison being the main attractions.

            Because FOMO is real.
            We haven't even got to European competition proper, yet.
            And Saudi window won't close for another 3 weeks.

            Week 9 WCers will leave them for dust.

            • 9 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Lots of popular picks like Gabriel, Pedro, Eze, Onana, Martinelli, Richarlison, Shaw dropping stinkers.

            Tbf I'm not sure there's a huge difference between playing it a few hours before the transfer window shuts / next week... 99% of transfer business should be done by deadline, no?

              I'm busy working on my WC5 draft but not thrilled with my starters this week & still not totally averse to pulling the trigger on Friday

          6. CABAYE4
            • 12 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            I imagine because like me they’re teams aren’t in very good shape!

            I’m going to muddle through this week but GW5 WC is likely.

        6. Bakutaner
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 27 days ago

          What forward is worth a hit? Antonio, Jackson, Wissa, Alvarez? I have Isak and Haaland and want to take third attacker...

          1. Big Mike
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Of those you listed I would say Jackson.

        7. Tmel
          • 13 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          a) Martinelli > Maddison
          b) Rashford > Maddison
          c) Martinelli > Sterling
          d) Rashford > Sterling

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            C for me.

            But any can haul 9n their day.

          2. Big Mike
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Yep, C is the move I'd make too.

          1FT, 1.0 ITB, thoughts?

          Flekken - Turner
          Dias - Chilwell - Estupinan - Udogie - Kabore
          Rashford - Saka - Fernandes - Martinelli - Mbuemo
          Haaland - Jackson - Archer

          • 9 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Diaby going under the radar?
          Steady points and some good fixtures after Liverpool.
          Even Liverpool with VVD and defensive woes at the moment could see Villa do well

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Diaby definitely on my to do list but not this week. Possibly only from GW8.

            • 2 Years

            Not sure about under the radar but I love him & Villa's attack looks fire. My top target

              • 9 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Vs the Sterling, Maddison talk I was referring to really

              1. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 2 Years
                5 months, 27 days ago

                Ah ok, yeah I suppose to some extent. All the better!

          3. Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Benched for first haul.
            Captained for blank.
            Sold for next haul (but for Sterling).
            He's annoying me but might buy back in gw5.

            1. The Mentaculus
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              So haul at Anfield, blank v Palace then. Got it

          4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
            • 3 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            I started with him with GW3-7 particularly in mind. Good start, expect he'll be a big threat v Liverpool too. Contemplating captaining him although will probably go Maddison

            1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
              • 3 Years
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Worth noting that only Brighton have created higher npxG than Villa so far too

        11. FootballRookie
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 27 days ago

          Martinelli to Sterling
          J Pedro to Awoniyi
          And then to make the above work money wise...
          Onana to Flekken

          All for a -4 hit

          Yay or Nay?

          1. OptimusBlack
            • 10 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Just first 2

            1. FootballRookie
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Not enough money for just first two... Hence goalkeeper change to get the £0.5m top up

          2. Big Mike
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Keep Onana

            1. Big Mike
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 27 days ago

              Just do Martinelli to Sterling

        12. OptimusBlack
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 27 days ago

          I don't want to ride Maddison and Sterling train like everyone else so maybe get Son or ignore all of that and get Awoniyi
          What donu think ?

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Awoniyi

            • 2 Years
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Tbh I think picking Son over Maddison at this point is just being different for the sake of it. But if Son takes the 9 role then the double up will really tempt me

            1. conrad10
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              5 months, 27 days ago

              My reasoning for Son is simple hes moved into the striker role when richardslon has been subbed of . There is a possability he will start the next game there . He has haul possibilities .

              1. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                • 2 Years
                5 months, 27 days ago

                Yeah ok that's a pretty good reason if you're confident in it. Don't mind going early as I expect he'll do well there

                1. conrad10

                  5 months, 27 days ago

                  got him in last week for richardslon , was toss up between him and madders .Not ready to give up on him yet . New striker would change a lot tho . ive been waiting to get johnson when forests fixtures improve so if he moves to spurs id have to wait longer as spurs toughie 6/7 gw . Then that would free up funds for salah but well leave that debate for another day ....if he stays haha

                Thing is he played 30 mins there v Bournemouth and didn't do very much of note

            • 3 Years

            For 45 mins of every game, Son's heatmap is identical to Postecoglou's.

          4. Big Mike
            • 1 Year
            5 months, 27 days ago

            Maddison will become a better FPL option when Spurs get a proper number 9 who can finish the chances he will create. As good as Richarlison is, he's not a 25+ goal a season striker.

          Which is the better move to make?

          Rashford to Sterling/ Maddison?

          Or

          Pedro to Wissa, Álvarez or Awoniyi?

              3-5-2 normally...

              With Ellis Simms parked on the bench.

              Could play 4-5-1.

            Potentially good signings during an injury crisis - not much more you can ask for with zero budget and 2 days left.

          On WC how she look:

          Areola Turner
          Chilwell Gvardiol Udogie Estu Gusto
          Salah Sterling Bowen Maddison Saka
          Haaland Alavarez Archer

          Nothing in the bank

            Bowen to Diaby?

            He's good but fixtures tough beyond the next game.

            Looks good. Bowen is fine as you can always move him to a lesser priced midfielder after.

          Start one (already starting Chilwell):

          A) Estupinan vs NEW
          B) Gusto vs NFO
