    If I got Botman in, would he be a stronger option to start in defence this week ahead of ...

    Estu, Cash, Gusto

    with Gabriel 1st bench to cover?

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Probably Botman ahead of Gusto, just...

    2. Boz
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Don't think you need Botman in tbh

        7 months, 1 day ago

        cheers

        that's my thinking so I could roll or get Udogie as cover for Henry (with future games in mind) and any suprise benchings in the front 7

        Salah Sterling Saka Diaby Mbeumo
        Haaland Alvarez

        Simms tucked away.

      Thinking similar mate. Jackson >> Alvarez seems a no brainer. Then need to decide if I do Gab, Chill or Baldock >> Botman.

      Onana

      Estu, Chilwell, Gab
      
Foden, Saka, Rash, Bruno, Maddy

      Haaland, Jackson
      

Subs; Turner, Gusto, Archer, Baldock

      1. Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Baldock because he's the least likely to get returns any time soon

        Do you need the Chilwel funds en route to Salah though?

    4. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Think I'd play Botman over Gusto, but don't think you should be desperate to get Botman in with your current defence. Newcastle defence has rode it's luck the last two games and the team isn't back to its best yet.

  2. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    What I do know - we'll need full available/playing benchs this GW - they'll be called upon....rotation season has arrived

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

      true enough

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Flipside: extended matches and five subs, so the benched lads will come on unless they were benched due to knocks/illness

      Annoyingly enough

    3. Touré De Force
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Couldn't agree more, "invest your money in to starting 11" is bad advice I sometimes see extolled here

  3. Boz
    • 11 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Bruno + Saka to Salah + Doku?

    Doku nice punt for a few weeks before GW9 WC?

    1. Mozumbus
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Yes without a hit only to get Salah in

      1. Boz
        • 11 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah it's for free

  4. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Who concedes more this GW:

    1. Fulham (vs CPL)
    2. Bournemouth (vs BHA)

    1. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      The unlucky lads facing Brighton

      Palace will rack up the xG but probably score just the one or two

      Brighton might hit 4 and still miss many

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yeah, true and good points, thanks Ze...

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Both playing away. I don't see much hope for either.

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Thanks Foo...

  5. Mozumbus
    • 2 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Martinelli to
    A. Sterling
    B. Mbeumo
    C. Bruno
    D. Rashford for a hit

    1. Boz
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      B

  6. CRAZY TRAIN
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Having missed the Botman price rise last night I think I'm going to revert and stick with Chilwell one more week. I know the risks but Villa were awful last night so fancy Chelsea to do us at the bridge.

    1. Boz
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      As long as Chilwell starts...

    2. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Were Villa playing first team?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        This

    3. Qaiss
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      You’ll score against Chelsea. Had most of your best players on the bench last night

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Can't see Digne being rested though and he had a shocker defensively last night. Chilwell could do some damage down that side

        1. Qaiss
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Doesn’t Digne play left back? Chilwell will be playing down Cash’s side. Well that’s if he plays.

          See if Pochettino mentions anything about Chilwell today

        2. R.C
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Moreno says hi

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Villa played a weakened side last night

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Diaby, Watkins, Cash, Luiz all came on in the second half....didn't make much difference. Lenglet was a surprise admittedly, when Cash came on for Chambers the damage had already been done.

    5. chocolove
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Are you troll fans? Dont know that you just put weakened team and Digne match up...

  7. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    No chance Onana gets dropped for Heaton, correct?

    1. SPorting
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Correct.

  8. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Is Cash place is danger from Moreno? Or can both start, somehow?

    1. CheesyGonzalez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Moreno is a left back ...

    2. Boz
      • 11 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Moreno LB taking Dignes place no?

    3. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Ah, okay cheers, so Cash seems safe'ish?

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Cash is safe. If Moreno plays it might see Cash being relieved of his attacking role.

    4. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      It's not like for like replacement. Emery has been quoted previously starting he could play Moreno attacking LB and Konsa RB/ shuffle in RCB as a 3 when in possession.

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

        Stating*

      2. Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        But the thing now is that the other trusted CBs are injured: Mings and Carlos. This means the only way to bench Cash in this system is to bring Lenglet, Chambers or Hause in. I think Cash is ahead of all three for starts on the right, even in a withdrawn role

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

          True but I think it's still an option for Emery if he thinks it's the right setup against certain teams.

          Moreno Lenglet Torres Konsa

          1. Ze_Austin
            • 5 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            Yeah. Let's see how much he trusts Lenglet over time. I've seen that last night's ECL back four was Digne Lenglet Konsa Chambers

  9. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Mid week was all set on Chilwell & Pedro > Cash & Edouardo for free.

    Need a rethink?

  10. R.C
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Will Diaz and Nunez start this GW?

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Jota Gapko and Salah to start i think.

    2. Ze_Austin
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Not sure even Klopp knows yet. They both looked great last night, fwiw

  11. Big Hands Barry
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Sterling to Mbuemo for free?

    1. richvar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      7 months, 1 day ago

      For sure. I'm a Chelsea fan, but had enough of them not being able to convert. I wildcarded them out.

  12. R.C
    • 6 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Who to bench?

    1. Son
    2. Maddison

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Damn, what team do you have?

      1. R.C
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        A bloody good one.

    2. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      I think Nunez will be benched after midweek so maybe bench him.

      1. La Roja
        • 12 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Strange response

        1. _Ninja_
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 13 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          I meant R.C has Nunez i'd bench him over Son/Maddison

      2. El Presidente
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Don't agree and in fact Moyes just stated Bowen is a doubt.

  13. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Not sure what to do here. Have a feeling Diaz and Pedro will be benched at the weekend so one of them out? 0.9m ITB

    Onana
    Chilwell Estupinan Saliba
    Saka Rashford Mbuemo Maddison Diaz
    Haaland Alvarez

    Turner Pedro Udogie Kabore

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

      Probably Pedro first, as good as he is it's just too unpredictable.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      You will get minutes from both Diaz and Pedro. Whether they start and how many minutes they get or sub on is the question.

  14. RogueBlood
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    2FT and 0.9 ITB what changes would you suggest here?

    Onana
    Chilwell, Estu, Udogie, Gusto
    Mbeumo, Rashford, Salah, Saka, Eze
    Haaland

    Turner, Pedro, Beyer, Mubama

    1. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Chilwell. Pedro > Botman. Alvarez seems the obvious pick

  15. boc610
    • 12 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    bowen a doubt for hammers on sunday

    1. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      I saw rumours as well but would wait for the press conference.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Oh, just saw he had a virus and is why he was not in the West Ham squad last night. I think he will start.

      Have Chilwell on my bench.

  16. DV8R
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Is it time to sell Watkins? Good fixtures coming but he hasn't scored yet. Thinking of Alvarez or Edouard

    1. Count of Monte Hristo
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Without scoring he has still been ticking along well enough and I think merits staying in for the nice run of fixtures.

  17. DMP
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Play Udogie vs.Arsenal or Kaboré vs. Wolwes?

    1. JBG
      • 5 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Kabore

    2. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      I have similar question.. Porro or Bell. On Porro atm

      1. DMP
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Porro. More atackong threat than Udogie and stand up for the big games. From Portugal and know him well.

  18. footballcandy
    • 7 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Start Saliba vs. Spurs (Starting Øde/Saka as well)

    or

    Kabore vs. Wolves?

    My other starting defs are Trippier and Estup

  19. Count of Monte Hristo
    • 10 Years
    7 months, 1 day ago

    Who has higher ceiling between Estupiñian and Mbuemo?

    1. HODGE
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Mbuemo

    2. Mirror Man
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Estupiñian

      • Ze_Austin
        • 5 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Both will be pretty high this week, but Mbeumo being the top mid in the game while having pens, set pieces and 90 minutes vs Everton... Yeah, him

        I'd bench any defender in the game right now for Estupinan vs Bournemouth, mind. Even Newcastle defs

    3. HODGE
      • 10 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Play one this week?

      A) Maddison
      B) Morris

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        A by many miles

      2. We Go Again
        • 9 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Maddison

    4. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

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

      1. Meechoo115
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        I would sell one of them, coin toss which one, perhaps Rash out given extra funds it frees up

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Raya no 1 now

      2. Qaiss
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Raya number one hopefully

        Ramsdale was awesome for his first 6 months with us and then after that has just been average bar a few away games last season

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

        he might rotate them but I think he picked him last time to avoid the NLD being his debut.

        It's his home league debut tho if that's the case

    5. Evasivo
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Best replacement for Pickford?
      (Turner 2nd Keeper)

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Areola

    6. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 8 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Got 2FTs, 0.6itb. Thinking Jackson >> Alvarez is a no brainer. Would you then do any of these? Or save FT?

      Gab, Chill or Baldock >> Botman.

      Onana

      Estu, Chilwell, Gab

      Foden, Saka, Rash, Bruno, Maddy
Haaland, Jackson



      Subs; Turner, Gusto, Archer, Baldock

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        • 4 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Yes, yes and yes, to Alvarez, repeat!!!

        Jackson could get his long awaited 2nd goal and then a yellow. Maybe Alvarez blanks but you will be rid of Jackson. You won't be keeping him past GW8 anyway.

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 8 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          And the defender move?

          1. FOO FIGHTER
            • 4 Years
            7 months, 1 day ago

            Play Gusto instead of Chilwell?

            1. Evasivo
              • 13 Years
              7 months, 1 day ago

              Same here

    7. Dr Mulholland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      How does this look for a WC ?
      Hesitating about playing Diaby or Botman.

      Leno (cry)

      Cash (che),
      Trippier (shu),
      Estupiñan (BOU)

      Salah (WHU),
      Saka (TOT),
      Mbeumo (EVE),
      Eze (FUL),
      Diaby (che)

      J.Alvarez (NFO),
      Haaland (NFO)

      Subs: Areola (liv),
      Botman (shu), Lamptey (BOU),
      Archer (NEW)

      1. Meechoo115
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        I would play Botman over Cash easily... also Lamptey is a wasted spot, perhaps get a Luton defender.

        1. Dr Mulholland
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          7 months, 1 day ago

          Cheers

    8. Shark Team
      • 6 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Play Martinez(che) or Areola(liv) ?

      1. Qaiss
        • 8 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Liverpool always score at Anfield. Chelsea are crap. Play Martinez

      2. Meechoo115
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        Easy Martinez

    9. Meechoo115
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Hey all

      Couple of Qs

      1. Play Bell
      2. Play Porro

      A. Roll FT
      B. Porro > Schar
      C. Udogie > Burn
      D. Son > Rashford/Bruno
      E. Something else

      Leno
      Porro. Colwill. Botman
      Mbuemo. Salah. Son. Saka. Diaby
      Alavez. Haaland

      Areola. Bell. Udogie. Archer

    10. waltzingmatildas
      • 13 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Would you do
      A) Chilwell to Botman
      B) Watkins to Morris (bench)

    11. GoonerByron
      • 12 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Bench an attacker and defender here..?!

      A - Wissa
      B - Son

      1. Chilwell
      2. Botman
      3. Gusto

      1. Meechoo115
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        A but ideally would play both!

        1 given cameo risk

      2. Dr Mulholland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        7 months, 1 day ago

        A + 3

    12. donbagino
      • 3 Years
      7 months, 1 day ago

      Botman, Estupinan, Akanji, Chilwell - bench 1, not easy...
