    Thanks! Possibly won't resist the temptation of doing Bruno to Mbeumo

  2. kysersosa

    A, B or C

    A) Gabriel to Botman
    B) Watkins to Alvarez
    C) both for -4

    TIA

      A

      Neither, but B if you must.

    What time is Neale getting out of bed?

    As Bob Geldof once said during Live Aid, "Give us your f***ing money and the press conference times"!

  4. Pukkipartyy

    Play Jackson or Maddo?

    1. antis0cial
      • 7 Years

      Maddison

  5. LiverpoolKG

    7 months, 7 hours ago

    I'm down to this decision I think:

    A : Jackson To Alvarez (FT)
    B : Maddison to Mbeumo (FT) and back to Maddison GW8
    Or
    C : Jackson & Maddison to Alvarez and Mbeumo (-4)

    This will be three week punt. Thoughts appreciated

    Thank you for answering my question, Zoph 🙂

      He knew what time Neale was getting out of bed?

  7. Anna.Andersson

      This is my team right now, i have 2 free transfers and 2,8 million in the bank, i am thinking of getting Alvarez and Botman in, who sould i replace?

      Onana - Turner
      Chilwell - Udogie - Estupinian - Gabriel - Bell
      Rashford - Mbeumo - Sterling - Saka - Maddison
      Haalande - Jackson - Mubama

      1. Steamboat Willy Boly
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Mubama and Gabreil if you have the funds I reckon

    • Warby84
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      Play Estupinan or Gusto??

      1. GreennRed
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        I'm playing Botman and both men 😉

        Cash and Beyer on bench. Would go Estupinan over Gusto.

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Estu

        Gusto is a decent first sub.

    • YoungPretender
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      GTG?

      Onana
      Chilwell Estupinan Gvardiol
      Salah Saka Eze Mbuemo Maddison
      Haaland Alvarez

      Turner Archer Cash Baldock

    • Stechrisolfc21
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      Flekken / Areola
      Cash / Schar / Botman / Udogie / Al-Dakhil
      Eze / Salah / Diaby / Mbeumo / Maddison
      Alvarez / Haaland / G.Jesus

      Final selection, views? I am worried about G.Jesus game time. My other option is Darwin. I want want of the 2. Who would be your pick?

      1. Steamboat Willy Boly
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Both minute risks but Darwins more fun. Better fixtures too

      2. antis0cial
        • 7 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        I'd be tempted to punt on Darwin

    • AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      Looking at the fixtures, is there an argument to get a Man Utd defender in rather than a Newcastle one?

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Victor Lindelöf rather than Sven Botman?

        I've got up to 6m to replace Henry.

        Who would you go for?

        Estu, Cash, Gusto and Gabriel currently.

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          Onana is more than enough Man Utd defence, thanks very much.

          1. Ha.
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            Too much, even

            1. Nomar
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 14 Years
              7 months, 7 hours ago

              Yes, but will need to take a hit to get rid of him this week.

              1. AC/DC AFC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 8 Years
                7 months, 6 hours ago

                yeah, I was playing devil's advocate.

      2. Tonyawesome69
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Potentially yes but depends when the likes of Shaw and AWB are back. Also defensive stats in previous games haven't been great compared to Newcastle when both teams had a tough fixtures

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          Small sample size for this season

          Newcastle 5th for xGC np/90 and more difficult fixtures compared to Man U ranked 13th.

          1. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 6 hours ago

            cheers.

            I've decided not to venture into Man Utd defense but I bet they sort it out and do okay across the season with clean sheets eventually.

    • antis0cial
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      A) Play Chilwell and hope he starts (Udogie sub)
      B) Chilwell to Botman

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        A

        B

      3. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Chilwell to Trippier for me.

        1. antis0cial

          Thanks but no funds for that

          1. LiverpoolKG
            • 1 Year
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            Can you get to Schar?

            1. antis0cial
              • 7 Years
              7 months, 6 hours ago

              Yeah but going Botman gives an easier path to Salah

    • Ha.
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      Bench 1

      A. Saka
      B. Watkins
      C. Maddison
      D. Eze

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Why are you benching any of those?

        1. Ha.
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          Because I’m not benching Haaland/Alvarez/Mbeumo/Rashford

          1. Steamboat Willy Boly
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            Watkins then

            1. Ha.
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 7 hours ago

              Leaning Watkins but I fully expect Chelsea to concede

          2. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 14 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            That’s what you get for having too many good ones in your front 8!

            I’d probably bench Eze.

            1. Ha.
              • 8 Years
              7 months, 7 hours ago

              Eze has best fixture on paper and passes eye test

              Only reason I’m considering benching is because of ownership

              1. Steamboat Willy Boly
                • 7 Years
                7 months, 7 hours ago

                Yeah but imagine the upside if he hauls! He's due

                1. Ha.
                  • 8 Years
                  7 months, 7 hours ago

                  Indeed

                  It’s whether to play offence or defence really

              2. Nomar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 14 Years
                7 months, 7 hours ago

                Watkins then.

                State of things when we're suggesting benching £8m strikers!

                1. Ha.
                  • 8 Years
                  7 months, 6 hours ago

                  Luckily he’s only 7.9m now

          3. Steamboat Willy Boly
            • 7 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            Eze home to Fulham is too juicy. I'm bringing him in this week

      Good shout on Reguilon Zophar. He looked dangerous v. Bayern and if Man U ever get their act together at the back he could be a good pick for a few weeks before a week 9/10 wildcard.

      "Fabian Schar, who posted amazing xG numbers last season." Can we please stop with this defenders with xG nonsense though.
      Last season, top 20 defenders for xG underperformed xG.
      Botman and Schaer got one goal from over 7 xG.
      If they were clinical in front of goal, then they wouldn't be playing CB.

    • Steamboat Willy Boly
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 7 hours ago

      Oof. Do you have to bench any of them? Defo play Eze

    • Nozzer7474
        7 months, 7 hours ago

        Unsure of who to play / bench in defence, any advice welcome.

        Leno
        Cash / Saliba / Estu
        Saka / Salah / Maddison / Mbeumo / Sterling
        Haaland / Alvarez
        Bench - Areola / Archer / Udogie / Anderson

        Do have 1 FT & 0.6 ITB

        1. Steamboat Willy Boly
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          I'd play Udogie over Saliba for slightly better attacking threat. But its close

        Morning, GTG?

        Onana
        Chilwell, Estupinan, Botman
        Saka, Foden, Sterling, Bruno, Mbeumo
        Hauland, Alvarez

        Turner, Jackson, Udogie, Kabore,

        Not heard anything from the PL today (nor did anyone yesterday on my day off) but luckily the Beeb have posted today's press conference times:

        9.30am - Arteta
        10am - Howe, Moyes
        12pm - ten Hag
        12:30pm - De Zerbi, Iraola, Pochettino, Guardiola
        1pm - O'Neil, Postecoglou
        1.30pm - Frank, Hodgson, Edwards, Heckingbottom

        I think Emery was last night with quotes to be released from embargoed today but I'll confirm this if and when PL send me the list. No mention of Klopp - he was up and out of his chair last night, so nothing embargoed from last night.

        Kompany, Dyche, Silva and Cooper were yesterday, with their quotes to come in the team news round-up article going live in the Featured sidebar soon.

        Was going to do Henry to Botman today but I didn't think he was going to rise last night.

        Any other 4.5m defenders in mind? Preferably LB/RB for Henry.

        1. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS

          Honestly - None that tempt me

          1. Khalico
            • 8 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            My current defence is
            Gusto, Estu, Cash, Udogie, Henry*

            So I'm trying to find a Henry replacement for 4.5m if any thats good

        2. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          No and Botman is 4.6m

        Will you have any Luton or Burnley players for the DGW?

        Seems like the most underwhelming DGW ever. I am tempted to just bring in a Luton defender and stick them on the pitch, but with Edouard, Alvarez and Haaland up front Morris is not making an appearance in my team.

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          Yes as I have Kabore from GW1

          1. ACCOUNTING ON CHRIS
            • 10 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            I do have Beyer, but he seems like a terrible pick...

            1. Tonyawesome69
              • 5 Years
              7 months, 7 hours ago

              He seems to do decent for bonus regardless of CS. Boils down to how you see the Burnley Luton game

        2. Ha.
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 7 hours ago

          I wouldn’t have any Luton or Burnley players even in a TGW

            • 10 Years
            7 months, 7 hours ago

            Literally...

            I think this is the worst DGW ever.

          Got Morris at the moment.

          But between him and Wissa one of them will have to go for Alvarez soon.

        Would you wildcard this team to get in Salah this week? 2 FT spent. Just have a feeling this is the week Salah scores big.

        Onana (Turner)
        Estu, Botman, Chilwell (Udogie, Baldock)
        Bruno, Sterling, Rashford, Saka, Maddison
        Alvarez, Haaland (Muamba)

        B) G2G?

        Hall of Shame Update: GW5

        Our leader, and the highest rated damsel in the tourney, is Gemgem1010s - ranked a staggering 955 overall. She is bounding toward the castle ramparts to take a running leap over the moat and toward freedom from the Hall of Shame. Outstanding performance, and not at all what we expect to see in the Great Hall! Shame!

        Lateriser12, the people's champion, remains the highest ranked Content Creator at 191 on 303pts, closely followed by FPL_Matthew from the Rubbery Hub at 213 on 301pts. Sir AZ the Tipsy must be here somewhere, I'll keep looking down the rankings! Oh there he is - barely off the last page, coming in at an impressively shameful 611th on 264pts! Congrats Sir AZ, you are well-placed to challenge for the coveted Dungeon-Master position, still locked-up by our perennially last-placed friend, Quick as Mudryk!

        Our highest ranked horse, indeed possibly our only horse, Rupert is well-placed at 255 on a pleasing 298pts. An almost complete set of horse armour looks to be in the (chaff) bag for Rupert. Are there any other horses out there prepared for the challenge?

        Skonto is still our top ranked Mod at 262 with 297pts. More mods are invited to join, it looks like our crop won't be able to catch Skonto! I'm looking at you Rainy!

        I mineself am lollygagging at 544th on 275pts, hoping everyone else in the tourney takes a hit this week!

            Great work, you win this week's random prize! You take home your very own trebuchet, with which to lay siege upon the 122 shameful players above you! Have fun mine penguin friend!

        Taking into account attacking threat and rotation risk, which of the following Luton defenders is best for DGW7?

        A: Andersen
        B: Bell
        C: Kabore

          It's Kabore!

            Is he nailed on for both games though?

          Thank for the heads up! I don't like surprises.

          yeah im so reluctant to get botman. people talking about toons like they are the team from aug -xmas 2022. and now going to be depleted from a very lucky, hard fought nil nil with milan

          Why would we be? They've scored in their last four including against MCI and TOT.

        @Zophar, thanks for the advice!

        Think I am still going to go with Bell over Chilwell. I don't think CHE will keep a clean sheet anyway. Have Mo, Saka, Alvarez and Haaland cap this week so a shot at Bell is not worst the case scenario.

        GTG?

        1FT 2.5m ITB

        Pickford
        Etsu / Botman / Chilwell
        Saka / Bruno / Mbeumo / Rashford / Sterling
        Haaland (C) / Alvarez

        Turner Saliba / Kabore / Muamba

        1. wulfrunian

        Alvarez captain?

        Seems EO destined to be near 100% this week

        1. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years
          7 months, 6 hours ago

          Nope

        2. DA Minnion (Former great)
          • 11 Years
          7 months, 6 hours ago

          Enough to have with Haaland captain.

      • SOTHPAW
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 6 hours ago

        Which mid to bench?
        Saka
        Son
        Maddison
        Mbeumo
        Diaby

        1. wulfrunian
          • 7 Years
          7 months, 6 hours ago

          Diaby

      • DA Minnion (Former great)
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 6 hours ago

        I'm getting Ward Prowse in before the crowd. You seen it here first.
        Epic move.

          • 13 Years
          7 months, 6 hours ago

          Funny, as I'm about to bench him...

          1. DA Minnion (Former great)
            • 11 Years
            7 months, 6 hours ago

            OK so you were slightly ahead of me.

        2. Cojones of Destiny
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 6 hours ago

          or epic fail

      • Limbo
        • 13 Years
        7 months, 6 hours ago

        First real connundrum of the season... I knew it was coming but this one is a doozy.

        Bench one:

        JWP (liv)
        Maddison (tot)
        Diaby (che)
        João Pedro (BOU)

        (+ Saka (TOT) / Salah vc (WHM) vc / Alvarez (NFO) / Haaland (NFO))

        (I've made sure I have a v. good bench with rotation more likely game on game - it's not paid off yet... and yet not too bad either)

        1. Mirror Man
            7 months, 6 hours ago

            Ward Prowse

            1. Limbo
              • 13 Years
              7 months, 6 hours ago

              Thanks.

              Feel like he could get points in any game - v. hard to drop. Also think Maddison will do well. Can't drop Diaby; Chelsea are sh!te. And if Pedro starts, could easily get 2 + is on pens...

              Leaning toward Maddison simply becayse Liverpool's defence looks leaky and Arsenal's strengthening.

            Pedro might not start but he scored last time out.
