    I love Darwin’s explosivity in terms of fpl points, but he’s not gonna score every game. If/when that happens, you’ve got to think Jota or Gakpo will come in and start up top. #1 rule is to always choose the starters unless going for a 1-2 GW punt.

    Salah is tasty though for their upcoming run…

    Rashy > Garnacho
    Foden > Salah

    Essentially Garnacho + Salah Vs Foden + Rashy

      Given united's issues at the moment, Gernacho is not a bad option is he

        Salah + Garnacho should do well

    Anyone else thinking of a punt on Maddison as captain this week?

      That’s what I will be doing.

    4. lugs

      i'd strongly consider it if i had him

      I am at the mo.

      May still bottle it by deadline

    Turner
    Chilwell Estupinan Udogie
    Salah Saka Rashford Foden Eze
    Haaland Morris

    Areola Pinnock Kabore Mubama

    1. lugs

      yeah, very nice team

      Yep nice team. Captain?

      1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Haaland

        1. Mambino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          Not tempted by Salah?

          1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 14 days ago

            I actually am

    3. Scalper
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Morris? I’m guessing for the upcoming DGW?

      I personally wouldn’t have him in my team until then

      1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Brought him in for Pedro who will lose value. With my set up have been playing Pedro every week. Morris shouldn't do worse.

          I see, how much ITB?

          1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 14 days ago

            0.4

  4. Lollabear

    Would you consider doing a WC before next round?
    My team now:

    Turner (Onana)
    Estu, Chilwell, saliba, udogie (kabore)
    Saka, foden, Maddison, mbuemo, (chukwu)
    Jackson, alvarez, haaland

    Some of these are bound to be rested next round

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      lol no, the only guy i'd want to replace there this week is Chuky and he's hardly a priority

    2. mrceez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      Absolutely not. Very solid.

  5. thewhitepele
    • 8 Years
    5 months, 14 days ago

    Got 2 FT and 0.4m ITB. Any thoughts? Keen on bringin in Son/Maddison but not sure of other..

    Sanchez (Areola)
    Chilly Dias Estu (Udogie Henry)
    Rash Saka Ode Foden Mbeumo
    Haaland Jackson (Semenyo)

    1. lugs
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      get your Spurs guy of choice, then work towards getting Morris for Semenyo for the dgw, i'd sell Chilly personally to raise the funds since you have Sanchez and are benching Udogie who is a fine replacement for him anyway

  6. FOO FIGHTER

    Let's be honest, if you look at the midfield table and see the top player with over 8 points per game and others over 7 points per game at literally half the price with Salah lagging behind under 6 points per game, is it worth holding onto him? Still early doors...

    Sure, a brace or a hattie in the next game will instantly change things and his fixtures are good but he should be right on Haaland's heels and doubt that will happen as Haaland is just a far superior FPL asset at this point.

    I think I will see how it goes vs Wolves but there is quite a temptation to move him to Son before the deadline.

    1. Mambino
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      From a selfish point of view the more the merrier - he becomes a better differential for me

    2. lugs
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      its not like you can't have Salah + Mbuemo and even Son too in the same team if you wanted

      1. Mambino
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        exactly

      2. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        Quite correct but even the likes of Ferguson and Alvarez are ahead of him at this point in FPL performance.

        I am a massive Salah fan, massive LFC fan to since the early 90's. I just don't think he is going to be quite the FPL asset compared to other seasons this time round.

        1. Mambino
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          5 months, 14 days ago

          You might be right, but I"m not sure there will be as much of a difference as some people seem to think. I think the reasoning I've heard seems very anecdotal too and I want to take advantage of that. I think you should stick with him for now

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            5 months, 14 days ago

            Oh yeah, like I said, will see what happens vs Wolves but if he keeps on trailing and the likes of Diaby are scoring more points the your rank will also trail.

      We have had 4 GWs

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 14 days ago

        he can't bang on about Salah leaving Liverpool so it's a change to the theme.

        I'm happy to have a consistent player in the team with the value around and to wait for his hauls.

        1. FOO FIGHTER

          Did someone pi** in your porridge again?

    How are Eze owners feeling? I've got exact change to go to Martinelli, or could finally get Mbuemo but Newcastle away doesn't seem like the week.

    avl, FUL seem like some decent enough fixtures to hold, but this season feels less about holding decently good players and jumping on the upside given all the options.

    Turner
    Chilwell Saliba Estu
    Rashford Saka Madders Foden Eze
    Haaland Jackson

    Johnstone; Pedro, Henry, Baldock...1.6itb 1FT

      Went for Mbuemo. He remains far and away Palace's best player, but that... has drawbacks.

    "Fati, the youngest-ever goalscorer for Spain". This article must have been in the can for a while because Spain's youngest ever goalscorer record was broken on Friday!

      Well spotted! I wrote quite a bit of it on Friday, including that part, but should have noticed.

        No worries.

        Haha no worries, it was just very unlucky that the record happened to be broken on the same day you wrote that part! Great article though!

    I quiet fancy Jarod Bowen at RW for Manchester united.

    I think he has all the attributes to succeed. Got Pace, Good finisher strongly built and hardworking.

    Thoughts?

    (With Antony and Sancho failures united will definitely be in the market for Right Winger in jan transfer market)

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years

      Liverpool will sign him first.

    2. Now I'm Panicking
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 14 days ago

      He'd probably prefer to play for a decent club

    3. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 13 days ago

      That's one way to ruin a promising career.

    Jesus or Isak in for JP?

    Thoughts on WC draft?

    Leno, Areola
    Trippy, Udogie, Chillwell, Estupinan, Gusto
    Maddison, Saka, Diaby, Sterling, Son
    Haaland, Alvarez, Archer
