    I'm quite surprised by how well Liverpool defended (pressed, actually) vs Villa. And this was with Mac A at DM and two second-string CBs, with Quansah having to play 20 minutes in Trent's place too

    I don't know how much to learn from that either, as it's a lineup that'll very rarely ever happen again. Maybe our pressing is back. If it works that well vs West Ham, Spurs and Brighton, I guess the leaky era could be assumed to be over

    Could be Ryan at DM soon though, so we're still in flux

      With Salah staying, Szoboszlai is nailed at RM.

      I think we will see the same midfield for now tith Endo and Mac. Klopp will probably bed in Ryan in the cup games and then rotate with Endo later on.

      if TAA fit I was interesting to see his different position against Villa moving into Centre Back & spraying passing long
      with accurate feeds/looked more solid than the inverted full back into midfield for Liverpool.

      They will miss VVD but his not been 100% the same since the pickford injury to him

    How is Watkins in the scout picks bus team? I'm looking to move him on now or should i be keeping? Jesus seems like a fun replacement?

    Done Jackson Jota Saliba to Alvarez Son Udogie -4 as had exact money they both went up so couldn’t have done it if I waited.

    Areola
    Udogie Dias Chilwell
    Odegaard Bruno Son Rashford Saka
    Alvarez Haaland

    Sub: Turner Gusto Kabore Mubama

    Any thoughts?

    1. FOO FIGHTER

      Udogie is ill and a doubt. Depends on the ilness I guess.

      Jackson to Alvarez either a bite you in the arse or the correct move. You won't be having Jackson long term anyway so the hit should be paid back no problem.

      I would get in Archer next week then you can stick with Alvarez 🙂

      I did Jackson and Sterling to Alvarez and Son

      I am genuinely curious as to why you repeatedly ask this several times a day.

      Are you not satisfied with any of the answers you've received? Unable to trust your own judgement? Bored?

        "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

        Think there are a few that suffer from this here

          Definitely.

          But this guy is taking the p*ss. It's completely baffling!

            Ask the same question until you get the answer you WANT to hear, not the correct one

    Is Botman due to be fit to play next weekend? Thinking Shaw > Botman or Schar but that 0.5 saving on Bot is tempting.

    Can't wait for the football to start again after the International Break! Especially after a 70 pointer to give us a red arrow down to 689k

    Taken a hit and will probably go with Son for the armband.

    How did you get on?

      Thanks you; giving us something to look forward to!!

      Spurs with highest cleansheet odds. Crazy. Has everyone seen our defending?

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years

        Playing with two defenders - somebody has to work them out sooner rather than later.

        😆

        Think it's says more about the opposition than your defending!

        Having said that you are ranked joint 1st for clean sheets kept this season 😆

        Yeah I know, small sample size and Cameron Archer will no doubt have something to say, but I'll remain hopeful and start Udogie...

          I'm not a Spurs fan although i'm enjoying their current style. Have and am starting Udogie too.

      You can always knee-jerk in a couple of players who haul this week for a hit, and then claim you had to do it as you had the exact money and they were going up.

      1. Gazzpfc
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        I had Jackson and Sterling and wanted rid

  7. FOO FIGHTER
    • 4 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    Start
    A. Vicario at home vs SHU
    B. Turner at home vs BUR

    Cap Salah away vs WOL or Haaland away vs WHU?

    1. Vazza
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Can I see your team please?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Vicario Turner
        Chilwell Estupinan Disasi Baldock Bell
        Salah Saka Diaz Bowen Ahamada
        Haaland Alvarez Archer

        I may consider Mbeumo in for Ahamada but will be -4 otherwise I just roll with Archer.

        No Spurs but waiting to see how things unfold.

        1. Vazza
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          The team could do with some surgery.

          I would suggest that you roll your FT and use a mini wildcard i.e. make 3 transfers for a 4 point hit

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            CHE defence will be gone. I may keep Diaz may move him on so only Ahamada to sort out.

            3 moves, not much surgery needed.

  9. Big Mike
    • 1 Year
    5 months, 16 days ago

    In your opinion, which combination scores the most points long - term?

    A) Bruno and Rashford
    B) Bruno and Son
    C) Rashford and Son

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      I can't see Son as a long term pick with Richa and Johnson both options to play no 9.

      I won't be doubling up on Spurs attack, bit like doubling up on LFC attack and points being shared. Johnson is the one I am keeping an eye on this GW. Cheap and bound to do well.

      1. Big Mike
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Can't see Son losing the number 9 slot after his haul v Burnley. Richarlison has hardly set the game alight and Johnson is more of a winger. Injuries permittong, my gut tells me Son will play up front from now on.

        1. Big Mike
          • 1 Year

          permitting

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        But having a City double attack with shared points is ok? just checking for a friend

    2. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Surely just guesswork at the moment given limited data and variable starts for each but I’m going to punt on Bruno and Son. No reason why Son can’t continue to score big and I just have a feeling that Rashford won’t repeat his last year’s form while Bruno continues to be instrumental to the team

    3. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      The clinical duo, as long as they're in their preferred positions: Rashford and Sons inc.

    If Salah keeps ticking along & not consistently getting big double digit hauls I can't see myself getting him this season!
    Yes you can get a good team with Salah but it's more inflexible

    1. The Ilfordian
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      I agree with that. Jury’s still out on him I reckon but I think he’s happy goals taken off him by teammates and I don’t like the imbalance of the team as much with him in. At current rate he’ll end up with 218 points- which could be matched by cheaper options but maybe he’ll start to fire.

      WC 9. Time to see the lay of the land

    2. Kane not win a trophy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Well. A doubler was on the menu against Villa, but a bit unlucky with Darwins missed big chances.

      Salah is the only nailed forward for Liv and form and fixtures are likely to pay back soon. There is still some work needed for finding the best formation but they are back on track and the new signings have improved their whole game.

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Salah is in form, though no big haul yet, as soon as he hauls like a mofo, everyone runs to him.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        And he has returned every GW so far.

    4. Dead Balls
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Having Salah and Haaland with great pricing with the kind generous ultra budget midfielders is working fine for me and nothing to fear

      1. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years

        yes, me too - keep quiet about it though

          Looking into this now myself, thanks for letting us know about it...

          1. Shultan
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            I don't have Salah & that's working fine for me to.
            I like money the ITB to be able to react to any position with just 1 transfer.

            I've seen my ML competitor with Salah needs 2FT to make moves. To get rid of pedro he had to downgrade a defender. With no money ITB he can't for example do rashford to Son unless downgrades a mid or his GK.
            I'm just saying if he carries on as he is I can't see myself owning

    Hot off the press, Eddie Howe’s just told Gabby Roslyn that he’s not thinking about Milan right now, Premier League is so important. Isak safe for a bit?

      Gabby Roslyn is a name I haven't heard in years. What has she been up to since she presented Big Breakfast with Chris Evans on Channel 4?

        Gaby Roslin is currently doing podcasts apparently and getting mixed up with her namesake

        Wikipedia says she is 59. How did that happen?

        What happened to Johnny Vaughan?

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Just googled him and found out this nugget about his past "In 1988, aged 21, Vaughan was arrested for trying to sell £15,000 of cocaine to undercover police officers"

            Fair play to him for having the charisma to rebound from such an incident!

          2. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 6 Years

            He was good. My Big Breakfast memories are more him and van Outen and Kelly Brook than Evans and Roslyn.
            I had a feeling that there some other scandal that took him out of the public eye, but I can't seem to find anything.

        Thanks what about below which allows me to keep Saka?

    2. UNCLE TONEY
      • 7 Years

      Other option is to keep Saka and drop Alvarez to Morris and Trafford to Turner?

      Areola
      Chilwell | Udogie | Cash
      Salah | Son | SAKA | Maddison | Mbeumo
      Haaland | MORRIS

      TURNER | Estupinan | Andersen | Archer

      1. UNCLE TONEY

        Which due to Saka EO feels I should!

      2. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years

        Think I prefer this one. Morris to Edouard after DGW

        1. UNCLE TONEY
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Thanks mate

        2. UNCLE TONEY
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Or even just play Estupinan in a 4-5-1 and bench Morris

          1. The Ilfordian
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Going to be difficult to make decisions on whether to play Estu in the next few weeks. He’s so good playing forward that he could get a goal any match. You’d want Morris against Fulham I’d think and maybe judge it from there

            1. UNCLE TONEY
              • 7 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              Yes I know, do want to keep him though.

              In many ways, my decision is actually:

              Estu & 5.5 fwd
              Or
              4.0 def & Alvarez

      3. Vazza
        • 3 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Don’t want to sound bias, but I feel the optimal team is the one I have posted below.

        The only thing that irritates me is that I have muamba and not archer, but I can live with that.

        1. Vazza

            • 4 Years

            I would get Alvarez while he is still cheap.

  13. Vazza

    Son or Haaland captain in GW5

    1. UNCLE TONEY

      I’ll have both and going Haaland for sure

    2. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

      Haaland

      Morris. Actually I am going to that game so I'll try to blow the ball into the net when he has a shot.

        Hot favourite. No romantic ending for Mo I fear

    Is everyone looking past Trent from GW9?

    He is looking kind of good to me by then.

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      He is no Henderson.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Only problem is his price but you pay premium for a defender with the highest ceiling in FPL.

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Odd CS is a bonus at the minute, but if Liv sort themselves out...

    2. panda07
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How long is he expected to be put for?

  19. DavvaMC

    Who would you start?

    A. Estu (Man UTD)
    B. Schar (Brentford)

    Thanks

    1. Delta Varane'iant
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Both likely to concede, Estu more likely to provide an attacking return

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Pervis so attacking and CS so few and far between anyway I'd start him every week.

  20. UNCLE TONEY

    Is there any chance Lamptey (3.9) could start seeing some regular gametime?

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Maybe in the cup games.

      1. UNCLE TONEY
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        I guess - he’s a much more natural RB than Groß

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Wouldn't go there.

      1. UNCLE TONEY
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        May not have a choice lol

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Mengi? Presumably Luton have brought him in for a reason.

          1. UNCLE TONEY
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            Yeah possible, I’ll take a look. Thanks, don’t think he’s played yet

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      If Botman is still flagged and does not start he his price will drop before the deadline. Keep an eye out!

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Well if Howe says he does not start. There is the 0.1 you require

        1. UNCLE TONEY
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Thanks he’s 4.5 though

    4. The Mentaculus

      Doubt it. Forget him

  21. UNCLE TONEY
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    A or B please chaps?

    A) Alvarez & 4.0 def
    B) Morris/Eduoard & Estupinan

    With A 4.0 def bench every week, and B the two to rotate

    1. FOO FIGHTER

      1. UNCLE TONEY

        Thanks so A?

        1. FOO FIGHTER
          • 4 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          Week is going to fly, dont select Botman in your WC just yet just incase he drops. If Gabriel is injured, another defender likely to drop in price.

          Don't have any players on your WC which may drop before the deadline otherwise your budget goes down the toilet.

          1. UNCLE TONEY
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            I don’t have Botman in it, are you mixing me up with someone else?

            1. FOO FIGHTER
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              I am saying Botman is an option to get the 0.1 you need if he drops.

            2. FOO FIGHTER
              • 4 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              You understand?

              1. UNCLE TONEY
                • 7 Years
                5 months, 16 days ago

                Oh to get instead of Cash/Udogie?

                If so I think I’d rather just have Lamptey, the former 2 offer supreme attacking threat in contrast

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 4 Years
                  5 months, 16 days ago

                  Well, Botman is a pretty good 4.5 defender to own if he is fit.

                  1. FOO FIGHTER
                    • 4 Years
                    5 months, 16 days ago

                    Get him at a possible 4.4 before the GW ends and it is win win.

                    1. UNCLE TONEY
                      • 7 Years
                      5 months, 16 days ago

                      I’m not convinced, hate playing for clean sheets - much prefer defenders with less chance of a cleanie but could chip in with goals and assists

                      1. FOO FIGHTER
                        • 4 Years
                        5 months, 16 days ago

                        You will sell him for a profit.

                      2. UNCLE TONEY
                        • 7 Years
                        5 months, 16 days ago

                        He’d have to raise 0.2, can’t see that happening

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Alvarez could be so so good.
      But wasn't there something about flights...

    3. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      I'd find a way to have both Alvarez and Estupinan

      1. UNCLE TONEY
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Would mean no Saka, Foden/Sterling instead

        1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          I'm not against dropping Saka

          1. UNCLE TONEY
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            That ownership though…plus his price makes it easy to go to any other mid really.

  22. Toon lurk
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 16 days ago

    When people talk about an fpl player having a ‘high floor’, what are they talking about?

    1. UNCLE TONEY
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      A high minimum expected return.

      Trent used to be like that when Liverpool were assured of a clean sheet, Haaland probably the only player these days with technically a high floor and ceiling

      1. Toon lurk
        • 6 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Ceiling I understand, floor no. Surely every player has the same floor? Trent regularly got 2 pointers even when getting hauls every other week

        1. UNCLE TONEY
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          There was a time Trent’s minimum was virtually 6, even if pool conceded he got an assist.

          Could argue Ederson has a high floor low ceiling

        2. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 6 Years
          5 months, 16 days ago

          The floor can be less than zero in certain cases.
          It is the expected floor so in the example above, if Liv. likely to get a CS then Trent's expected floor would be 6.

          1. Andy_Social
            • 11 Years
            5 months, 16 days ago

            The current most obvious example of high floor/low ceiling would be Ederson and Man city defenders.

              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 2 Years
              5 months, 16 days ago

              Low ceiling sure but would you really say their floor is more than 2?

              1. Toon lurk
                • 6 Years
                5 months, 16 days ago

                This is what I don’t get. How can his floor be more than 2 when he got 2 points the week before last? I may be being dense lol

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      Tbh I kind of agree with you - there's hardly any circumstances where I'd use that term or consider a player to have a floor over 2. The only one I can think of is what FNC is suggesting - e.g. if you have to choose betweem Nakamba & Kabore as 1st sub, Nakamba has a solid 2pt floor while the defender can get negative points

      1. Andy_Social
        • 11 Years
        5 months, 16 days ago

        Floor/ceiling is not some kind of guarantee. But City are predicted to let in the fewest goals/keep the most clean sheets in the league. So their minimum average number of points is expected to be higher than other defenders.
        In FPL psychology, we often overlook this because we prefer the (minimal) chance of attacking returns from a defender, thus preferring Udogie over Dias, ie going for risk over security.

    3. lugs
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 16 days ago

      it makes sense when talking about the Sky game, Dunk & Rodri for example would have a floor of 5pts almost every game, in fpl though it doesn't make sense unless you're talking about ppg average
