    JWP for me. (stressed face emoji)

      Looked brilliant last night. His corners were tantalising.

    Cheers Zophar.

    Good advice and I'd come to the conclusion that Sterling is worth playing. So I'm in agreement.

    Hoping for another good weekend but this game can be 2 steps forward and 1 back!

    Have fun.

      All my steps have been backwards so far. Waiting patiently on the forward one.

        When performing the backstep just do a 180 first then reverse 180 when finished that way you're always moving forward.

        Yurt.

      2ft and 0.1itb.

      Johnstone
      Chilwell Saliba Estupinan
      Salah Saka Maddison Mbeumo Diaby
      Haaland Jackson

      Turner; Kabore, Udogie, Mubama

      Jackson, Chilwell -> Alvarez, Botman/Schär as the free transfers? Surely I still have a starting goalkeeper this week, right?

      1. Super John McGinn-

        Considering doing the same

      Awoniyi to:
      a. Wilson
      b. Hojlund

          Hojlund is top of my post Glazer watchlist. 2031 is the year of the Hoj.

        • Limbo
          • 13 Years

          Why are you shipping Awonyi? He's been an absolute banker.

          1. Cojones of Destiny
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Im considering to ship kinda stuck in my ML hence want to have a nice little differential. Would you play him over Madds this gw?

            1. Ze_Austin
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              Awoniyi is your differential, owned by 6%

              He hasn't even blanked yet

              I'd just bench him for Maddison here and spend transfers elsewhere

          2. Thefire78
            • 6 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            They signed origi he might get rotated if not scoring, just a small risk obviously but there's plenty of similar options

        • PogChamp
          • 12 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Im keeping Awoniyi. Form is great and fixtures up to GW19 are good

        • AC/DC AFC

          6 months, 23 days ago

          C

          or A. He's going to be benched soon enough tho.

      3. Super John McGinn-
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 23 days ago

        Pickford
        Chilwell, Estupinan, Gusto
        Salah, Rashford, Saka, Mbembo, Diaby
        Haaland, Jackson

        Turner, Archer, Kabore, Beyer

        2 FT FT 0 ITB

        A) Chilwell + Jackson > Botman + Alvarez
        B) Jackson > Alvarez
        C) Chilwell + Jackson > Dias + Alvarez
        D) Other

        1. aapoman

          Good team. For me it is either A or B.

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          B

          I can see Sheffield United scoring on Sunday afternoon.

          The main Sky game with the home fans behind them.

          1-2? A late Newcastle winner after Gustavo Hamer shows his quality again.

        3. Saka Rice
          • 9 Years

          If Chilwell starts you'd rather him I think over Botman..

          Looks good to me, maybe a benching headaches with the front 3 though?

          1. Thefire78
            • 6 Years

            Might bench ward prowse v pool and hjol will play v easier Burnley

        Could Gordon be a good pick for their good run? No talk about him...

        1. Mirror Man
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Maybe but I'm not going first.

          • AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Newcastle attack stuttering so far.

            But Sunday could be good for Wilson.

          • The Biscuitmen
            • 1 Year
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Not sure I fancy their midfield. Defence or one of the strikers seem a better shout

          • House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Often gets subbed early. Has 4 yellows from 5 games and 1 yellow away from a suspension which at its current rate should be happening very soon.

            I'd avoid for now.

          • Hairy Potter
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            4YCs already, plus a good chance that he is benched this weekend with Barnes and Miggy coming in on the wings.

        2. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Wow pretty big mistake by me not getting Botman before price rise...

          I can no longer do my double switch of Chilwell + Foden > Botman + Rashford. Priced out by 0.1m.

          Could be a blessing in disguise. Means I have to keep Foden another week.

          1. The Knights Template
            • 10 Years

            Yes, a blessing, that's it!

          2. CRAZY TRAIN
            • 12 Years

            Caught me out too. Didn't look like he was going to rise when I looked yesterday.

            • 3 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Burn isnt much worse than botman until your wildcard. That said i expect chilwell might Burn quite a few people who are going to newcastle defence.

          Not sure what to do here guys :-

          2FT and £0.5 ITB

          Onana Turner
          Estu Chilwell Gusto Udogie Kabore
          Salah Saka Rashford Mitoma Mbeumo

            • 5 Years

            Probably just do Chilwell to Botman and roll the other transfer

        4. boc610

          6 months, 23 days ago

          if you think your team has tough, entitled fans who think nothing is ever good enough , try Marseille for size, who have just rail roaded their sporting director, president , manager plus coaching staff out of town after a nil nil draw with toulouse. Marseille sit 4th in ligue 1 and are unbeaten in 5.

        5. The_Colonel
          • 10 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          1) Chilwell to Botman (free)
          2) Chilwell + Pedro to Botman + Alvarez (-4)

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 13 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            I'd probably do 2. Alvarez is a medium-long term hold.

          2. AC/DC AFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            2

          3. SPorting
            • 12 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            I did (2) for free but with two different players.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 7 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              Are you the mystery Hojlund buyer pushing his price up?

        6. Saka Punch
          • 5 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Final midfield spot on WC:

          Rash
          Madds
          Foden

          Would bring in Madds likely for Saka in a couple of weeks either way

          1. Ze_Austin
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Maddison

            Don't sell Saka

            If I were to WC now, my midfield would definitely be:

            Salah Saka Maddison Mbeumo Diaby/JWP

            Set and forget for a while. FTs can focus on defenders because their returns are way more erratic and fixture-dependent so far this season, while Haaland, Alvarez and Archer are stuck up top

          2. Wrong Captain Choice - Ag i…
            • 14 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            I don't have Rashford but have the other two. Foden frustrating seems to drop deep not FPL involved. Good in 'real life'

            Maddison doing well but two difficult ones up coming .
            I expect a Man United reaction in the next two they might not be able to defend but always have goals in them. Rashford the main threat.

          3. wulfrunian
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Rashford

          4. Saka Rice
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Dont understand how you can even consider Maddison and Foden ahead of Rashford. Better fixtures, better minutes and more attacking regardless of Man U performances

        7. Zenith UK
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Areola, XXX
          Estupinan, Cash, Udogie, XXX, XXX
          Salah, Saka, Doku, JWP, XXX
          Haaland, Alvarez, XXX

          A) Turner, Burn, Gusto, Diaby, Wissa (2.0M ITB)
          B) Turner, Trippier, Gusto, Diaby, Wissa (0 ITB)
          C) Turner, Burn, Gusto, Mbeumo, Watkins (0 ITB)
          D) Leno, Burn, Gusto, Diaby, Wissa (1.4M ITB)
          E) Leno, Trippier, Gusto, Diaby, Archer (1.0M ITB)
          E 2.0) Lose JWP for Mbeumo (0.3M ITB)

          I love to hate this game... Open to other alternative recommendations.

        8. outernational
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Considering both attacking threat and rotation risk, which of the following Luton defenders would you pick for DGW7? Kabore has the greatest attacking threat, but is he nailed on to start both fixtures?

          A: Andersen
          B: Bell
          C: Kabore

          1. Camzy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 13 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            I'd go Kabore, yeah.

            1. outernational
              • 9 Years

              Thanks!

        9. denial
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Play Chilwell or start Digne or Udogie?

        10. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Pedro to start or his 82mins last night indicates a benching?

          1. Jafooli
            • 12 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Those two goals (penos) add a bit of uncertainty?

          2. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Be difficult to drop him after a brace surely

            1. Ze_Austin
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              Either narrative could be right. Both probably will be considered by RDZ

              But note that JP started as a striker here, meaning the spot he started in could be taken by Welbeck (scored on last start) or Ferguson (hat trick on last start)

              In a team filled with form players, scoring two pens doesn't exactly lock you in

              1. Jafooli
                • 12 Years
                6 months, 23 days ago

                Gotta agree with this, penos aren't 'goals' in open play.

                Also Fati is floating?

                1. ameisin
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 7 Years
                  6 months, 23 days ago

                  Also worth noting that he won both pens himself with his runs into the box.

                  It does indeed look like Fati is going to be used in floating 10 role, but he was fairly anonymous in the second half. It seems he still hasn't fully settled into the style/rhythm of the team.

                  Mitoma had a big part in conceding two goals - poor marking for first, then cheaply giving ball away for third. He looked a bit sh*gged in general.

                  Ferguson could be back - depends how bad his illness was.

                  And biggest takeaway was that we're a mess at the back without Dunk.

          3. SPorting
            • 12 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Who are their other options?

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 7 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              Welbeck and Ferguson

            2. Jafooli
              • 12 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              Welbeck, Ferguson & Fati - plenty of competition for the 9/10/11 positions?

          4. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            RDZ said Ferguson will play on Sunday, that may mean he will start. Boils down to Welbeck v Pedro for the other attacking spot

            1. Jafooli
              • 12 Years
              6 months, 23 days ago

              What about Fati?

              1. Tonyawesome69
                • 5 Years
                6 months, 23 days ago

                Didn't mention him because I don't think he starts

        11. FCH
          • 3 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Watkins to Alvarez?
          Or keep faith in Ollie..
          Got 2FT.

          1. AD105
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            I made that switch, can’t wait for Watkins forever

          2. House Frey Wedding Planner
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            If there are no other moves to make then would rather do Watkins to Alvarez as opposed to burning a transfer

          3. FCH
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Thanks guys!

        12. Atimis
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          Have both Bruno and Rash, reckon Bruno to Mbeumo sounds reasonable considering United's form and Brentford's fixtures?

        13. Tonyawesome69
          • 5 Years

          Eddie Howe on the fixture schedule:

          "We are going to have to rotate the squad. We don't want to make, if we can help it, wholesale changes to the team in any one game. I don't think that will do our rhythm any good. Tweaks as we're going along, hopefully then the team will be unaffected but we manage to keep everyone fresh."

            Ah, here we go

            • 12 Years

            Sigh...

          3. Qaiss
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            What did people expect? “Ah nah mate, we’re going to keep playing the same XI every game, so FPL managers teams are unaffected”

          4. Hairy Potter
            • 8 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            Also the cup game against Man City to factor in.

            Front three against Sheffield Utd could be Barnes, Wilson and Miggy.

            Midfield there are limited options with Willock and Joelinton out. Maybe Anderson comes in, but this game might suit Tonali. Tonali's supposed reaction after the team and bench berated him for not tracking RLC, could maybe impact his selection.

            At the back. I'd expect the same back four, unless he makes a change at left back. There will probably be rotation chances for Livramento and Hall/Targett in the Man City game.

        14. AD105
          • 7 Years
          6 months, 23 days ago

          ESTU - BOTMAN - UDOGIE - KABORE

          A. Shar - NEW double up.
          B. Reguillion - variety of teams to rotate + saves money in bank.

          Would you prefer wildcard draft A or B?

          Comes down to Turner, Estupinan, Eze, Kobore or Flekken, Burn, Diaby 3.9 Fodder.

          A:
          Turner Areola
          Botman Estupinan Cash Udogie Kabore
          Salah Rashford Saka Eze Mbeumo
          Haaland Alvarez Archer

          B:
          Flekken Areola
          Botman Burn Cash Udogie 3.9
          Salah Rashford Saka Diaby Mbeumo
          Haaland Alvarez Archer

            I’d go A) I have Flekken and Areola, but I really think you can go with Areola…

          After rage transferring Chilwell to Botman at the weekend, should I:
          a) Watkins to Alvarez for -4
          b) cool my boots

            B usually is best

          HaalandC Alvarez Edouard

          Vicario Chilwell Ahamada Baldock

          Not expecting anything from my defence but quietly confident about my attack this GW. No hits taken and no fomo moves this week. Did use my FT on Turner to Areola with my FT. Will see by next week whether to roll or not. If Doku does start this GW I am going to find a way getting him in in the next 2 GW's.

          Also do not want to double up on midfields anymore but JWP at only 6.2m scoring over 7 points per game may force my hand. He clocked up 142 points last season so in a better more attacking team, he may well be the best cheapest mid to own this season taking on the 8.0/9.0's.

          Quick fire vote:
          A - Darwin
          B - G. Jesus

          No C - Z (Just A or B)

          2FT 0.4 ITB:
          A) Baldock -> Reguilon (roll 1 FT)
          B) Chilwel + Baldock -> Botman + Burn (with exact cash for GW8 Saka + Foden -> Son + Maddison)

            How nailed in Burn?

              Hall can get a game or two.

                Or Targett. If Botman is still carrying his injury then Burn could move to CB, though he was poor against Brighton.

          GTG? Was just going to roll my 1FT this week and then do 2-3 TFs next week

            Looks good for now, wait on Chilwell news

          This start of the season is consistently messy. I find Pedro in my starting XI time and time again, always guessing if he's starting or not. Now the same with Chilwell. With 1 ft and 0.2 itb, what looks like THE move here?

          Pickford
          Estu Kabore Chilwell
          Salah Saka Bruno Maddison Mbeumo
          Haaland Pedro

          Turner Archer Baldock* Henry*

          A) Henry -> Burn (bench Chilwell, can afford JP -> Edouard next GW)
          B) JP -> Edouard (start Chilwell)
          C) Both for a -4

          1. Ze_Austin
            • 5 Years
            6 months, 23 days ago

            A, but I'd bench Kaboré vs O'Neil's pretty attacking Wolves and risk a Chilwell start or attacking return as a winger off the bench instead

            Remember that Kaboré is also a rotation risk

              Thanks for the reminder, I'll prioritize bench depth.

          Watkins Haaland

          Turner Udoige Archer Kabore

          1ft 3.2 itb

          Waiting to see if we get any more info on Chilwell in the press conference (could just bench and play Udoige). The more I think about it the more I think Watkins to Alvarez is worthwhile this week. Any other moves?

            Bruno to Salah is another move.

              Don't quite have the funds but probably look to do that on WC
