    Thoughts on this team?

    Allison
    Robertson Chillwell Zinchenko
    Sterling Bruno Rashford Odegaard Diaz
    Hojlund Haaland

      Well one less manager to worry about so go for it 🙂

    2. Bevan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Chill Well, Diaz - minutes
      Gojlund - fitness/ form

      Man Utd triple is bold considering their current form.

    3. Rasping Drive

      Could do with a tweak or two…

    4. Batman1983

      Not good...

      Give your reasoning on the non-template picks if you want constructive feedback not abuse.

      1. Saka Rice
        • 9 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        Alisson - best keeper in the world
        Robertson - cheaper than Trent and still attacking
        Chilwell - Have faith in him
        Zinchenko - Solidarity with the Ukranian war
        Sterling - 19 points recently
        Bruno - good player
        Rashford - good player
        Odegaard - 2nd best Norwegian player in the world
        Diaz - Cheaper than Salah
        Hojlund - cheap starting forward for Man U will score loads of goals

        1. The Mentaculus

          Have you seen Chelsea's fixture run after Burnley? Doesn't get any worse than that so it looks more like blind faith to me. Man Utd attack may come good soon but do you really want to be tripled up while you wait for it? Villa & Spurs have the best medium-term fixtures & you've ignored them entirely. Son & Maddi will sink you

        2. Dennis System

          Have you just answered your own question

          ............and badly??

          You're trolling with that Zinchenko reasoning, right?

      Love someone who backs their own convictions rather than let themselves be moulded by the sheep on here.

      Go for it.

        4 months, 29 days ago

        Exactly this. Lots of people will just guide you towards the template, which is hardly advice. In a couple of weeks Odegaard and Diaz might be the new template. Good luck with it.

    Anything worth a hit here? Already done Chilwell > Trippier, I’ve resisted the temptation to WC after 5 consecutive red arrows.

    Onana
    Trippier Estupinan Udogie
    Saka Son Rashford Foden Mbeumo
    Haaland Alvarez

    Turner Archer Colwill Baldock

    1. Buck The Trent
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      I’d play Colwill ahead of Udogie

    2. Bevan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Looks good

    3. Alan Watts
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Maybe its time to resist your resistance to WC

      1. Alan Watts
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        That said, looks like a good team

  3. Ajax Hamsterdam
    • 9 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Hard to be on this site after a disastrous week but here we go again

    Would you do maddison to jwp this week for free if it means mbeumo to son following gw for free. Cheers.

    1. Bevan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      No I'd bank the transfer and decide next week.

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years

      Hell no.

    3. Batman1983
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Definitely not!

    4. Ajax Hamsterdam
      • 9 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Cheers 🙂 didn't think it was a good idea either

    5. Exeterslowly
      • 8 Years
      4 months, 29 days ago

      I would as Maddison is an injury doubt

  4. rozzo
    • 10 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Areola
    Estupinan Botman Cash
    Salah Son Saka Maddison Mitoma
    Haaland Alvarez

    Turner Archer Andersen(Luton) Gusto

    0ft
    0.4 itb

    Anything worth a -4?

    Gusto to Kabore and play instead of Cash? Would leave me with 2 Luton defenders though

    1. GreennRed
      • 12 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Stick. Should start Andersen for his DGW.

      1. rozzo
        • 10 Years
        5 months, 4 hours ago

        Will he play both? He didn't play last game for some reason

        1. GreennRed
          • 12 Years
          5 months, 4 hours ago

          Oh. Fair point. Not sure about that now so only if you have definite update. I'm starting Beyer, Estupinan, Botman. Cash and Gusto on bench.

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 14 Years
            5 months, 4 hours ago

            Interesting. What’s the thought process behind benching Cash in favour of Estupiñan?

            1. GreennRed
              • 12 Years
              5 months, 3 hours ago

              Tight call. I think Estupinan has more attacking threat than Cash in this game. Not expecting either to keep a cleansheet.

              1. Rasping Drive
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 14 Years
                5 months, 3 hours ago

                Cool. I’m doing the opposite. Let’s hope both get attacking returns, eh?

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Wouldn't bring Kabore in as you don't wanna be stuck with 2 Luton defenders. Take the risk with Andersen over Estupinan and hold

  5. dshv
    • 6 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    Bring Morris for the double now have to decide which mid to take a rest:
    Choose:

    Rashford bruno Mitoma Maddison Saka

    1. boombaba
      • 11 Years
      5 months, 4 hours ago

      Flip a coin

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      And there we have it. One of the reasons against bringing in Morris (as well as having to spend potentially 2 trades - in and out).

      On a more constructive note, assuming Maddison if fit to start, I’d toss a coin.

    3. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Yeah, I'm not gonna bother, 2 trades to bring him in/out and probably wouldn't really want to captain him

    4. Shultan
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Just don't bring him in

  6. House Frey Wedding Planner
    • 5 Years
    5 months, 4 hours ago

    How does this look?

    GW7 - Gusto & Mbeumo ➡ Burn & Gordon (-4)
    GW8 - Foden ➡ Salah

    First hit of the season as I don't like my defensive options for GW7. Also want to have Salah, Son, Saka, and Maddison in my midfield going forward. Will need a midfielder 5.8 or lower to be able to accommodate that (alternative is also having Bowen and Diaby but having to sell one of Son or Saka). Think it's time to jump off Mbeumo as I think Gordon will outscore him in the next 2 at least, now that Barnes is out long term.

    1. Mumfie
      • 2 Years

      If Gordon gets a booking midweek, will he be out for the weekend?

      1. House Frey Wedding Planner
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        No it's only yellow cards accumulated in the PL. Will wait until after the League Cup games are done before making the switch.

        I'd have Gordon in my first XI until GW11 at least - even if he does pick up a yellow and misses a game, after this GW my back 5 would be okay to cover this

        1. Mumfie
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          I never liked Gordon, but I’m warming to him and his position looks more secure now in a very attacking team.

          At least you have a plan if it happens…..good stuff.

  7. Keventry City
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    What downgrades are people considering in order to fund Salah?

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

      it's either Son or Salah as far as I can see.

      everything else can fall into place around that. Except Trippier or Trent before him.

      ... or you could argue there's a Saka or Son trade off too.

    2. House Frey Wedding Planner
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Not bringing in Trippier as I'd find it hard to have a team featuring Salah, Haaland, Son, Saka and Maddison as well as Trippier

    3. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Saka, Diaz, Trippier - Salah, Gordon, Botman. Could work for GWs 8-11 given the relative fixtures for ARS/LIV but I'm not really convinced its worth it, certainly not longer-term or from a value perspective

      1. The Mentaculus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 2 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        Other significant factors for me are that I'm not sure I would actually captain Salah at all (but definitely would captain Son GW8), and Darwin is starting to look like a viable option - not suggesting he'll cover Salah ofc but I think he enables some stronger combos

    4. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      I'm not sure i'm gonna go there as there are mids at between 7m-9m that can match him for points during his better fixtures.

  8. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 3 hours ago

    Which three would you play from:

    A) Udogie (LIV)
    B) Chilwell (ful)
    C) Cash (BHA)
    D) Trippier (BUR)
    E) Estupinan (avl)

    1. House Frey Wedding Planner

      DCE I think

    3. FOO FIGHTER
      • 4 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Chilwell will likely start unless Poch keeps on being dumb.

  9. mattyb09

    • 5 Years

    Trent back in training, should be good to go this weekend. Anyone thinking of going with him to cover Salah and use funds elsewhere?

    1. mattyb09
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      This will only require a -4 by GW9...

      Raya [Areola]
      Trent Schar Botman [Udogie, Lamptey]
      Son Saka Bruno Maddison Diaby
      Haaland Alvarez [Archer]

    2. Mumfie
      • 2 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Trent won’t cover Salah, or we’d all be doing it.

      I wildcarded last week to bring Salah in. I think Son may come the closest to covering Salah.

  10. AD105

    Anything worth a hit here? 0.6 ITB

    Onana
    Botman Estu Kabore
    Bruno Rash Saka Madders
    Haaland Alvarez Morris

    Turner Mbeumo Chilwell Baldock

  11. boombaba

    Which midfielder/striker would you bench from this WC team ?

    Areola Turner
    Botman Reguillon Cash Kabore Branthwaite
    Saka Son Salad JWP Bowen
    Morris Alvarez Haa

    Currently on Alvarez…

    1. Shultan
      • 7 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Yeah Alvarez

    2. mwa1t
      • 3 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      JWP

  12. Shultan
    • 7 Years
    5 months, 3 hours ago

    Got exact money for this WC team. Can't afford it if Salah & bowen go up tonight

    Areola/Turner
    Botman/Burn/estu/udogie/kabore
    Salah/Son/Maddi/Saka/JWP
    Haaland/Alvarez/Archer

    Thoughts?

    1. The Night Trunker.
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        How does Bowen going up affect your W/C team?

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 12 Years
          5 months, 1 hour ago

          I think he means jwp who is over 100% to go up.

      • Oasthouse FC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        looks good to me, almost the same as mine!

      • WVA
        • 7 Years
        5 months, 2 hours ago

        No Villa on a WC seems strange. Estupinan going to be on the bench for next 3 weeks....

    2. JollyGoodYellows
      • 5 Years
      5 months, 3 hours ago

      Should I WC this lot?

      Areola Leno
      Gvardiol Estupinan Chilwell Gabriel Baldock
      Madison Saka Rashford Mbuemo Bruno
      Haaland Alvarez Osula

      1. boombaba

        I would

      2. The Night Trunker.
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Nothing a little scalpel and -8 couldn't fix.

        • Mumfie
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Forward line is okay, keepers are fine.

          Lose 1 or both United midfielders.

          Chilwell out of defence for some Newcastle and it looks decent.

      3. Alan Watts
        • 5 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        If Chilwell plays league cup, doesnt look good for ful..

        Best replacement :

        Botman vs Cash vs Udogie...and why ?

        1. Alan Watts
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Then again, if he plays and does well, maybe thats excuse for Poch to start him at Ful ?

        2. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Maatsen and Cucurella will come into contention as well

          1. Alan Watts
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 3 hours ago

            For left back ?

        3. Alan Watts
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Reguillion could be a shout also,

        4. I Member
          • 8 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          I would be more worried if he doesn't play. He's been on the bench the last two games, needs minutes.

          1. Alan Watts
            • 5 Years
            5 months, 2 hours ago

            Yeah fair point, as I said if he puts in a performance might get Poch to start him w/e

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        What do we think about Mbeumo to JWP this week?

        Only just brought mbeumo in this week on a WC so seems knee jerky, but JWP would free up some extra cash for up coming moves...(i.e getting son in the following week)

        thoughts appreciated

        1. dparran
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          if the ultimate goal is to get Son, this seems to be a good route. Mbeumo seems to be cooling off and JWP has been ticking along

        2. Mumfie
          • 2 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Exactly the position I’m in, I can also afford Bowen.

          JWP does leave some nice change behind for future transfers.

          1. Oasthouse FC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            5 months, 3 hours ago

            thanks both, yeah it's a bit of gamble - could easily backfire with mbeumo's fixture this week.

        3. Batman1983
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          5 months, 2 hours ago

          All for it. Brentford aren't looking that good at the moment.

      5. dparran
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        5 months, 3 hours ago

        Any concerns with Maddison (vs. LIV) and would you play him over Sterling (vs FUL)?

        1. The Night Trunker.
            5 months, 3 hours ago

            I reckon Sterling could do well this week and Pool should have their strongest defence back this week.

            • 2 Years

            Some small concern over his knee but let's see what Ange has to say

        2. Dennis System
          • 5 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Sterling to Diaby? or worth persisting for one more week (for that useless ballerina to literally do anything)?

          1. The Mentaculus
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 2 Years
            5 months, 3 hours ago

            I believe its time to apply the final stage of the Dennis system

            1. Miguel Sanchez
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years

              My season is fast reducing itself to the Frank System

                😆 The magnum dong play?

                  • 7 Years
                  5 months, 2 hours ago

                  That and then moving for scraps

        3. mwa1t
          • 3 Years
          5 months, 3 hours ago

          Anyone going for an alternative captain this week? I'm considering it - not sure I see Haaland getting much more than one goal.

          Morris and Bruno my options atm

          1. Miguel Sanchez
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            5 months, 3 hours ago

            If i were to I would go for Bowen (SHU) but can't see myself moving off Haaland this GW

            1. mwa1t
              • 3 Years

              Moving off Haaland has worked wonders for me thus far. But now I'm ahead I've got something to cling onto, so i'm leaning towards more conservative choices.

              I think if rank didn't come into the equation, I might lean towards Bruno

              Why Bruno? United look awful and Palace are solid.

                Home game, decent underlying numbers

                  Fair enough I guess. I'm happy owning him but not even considering captaining him.

            I need to bench one of Cash, Estu or Beyer. Beyer has a double-game week but plays for Burnley. Who would you let warm the bench?

              Bench Beyer imo

              Tough probably Beyer.

              Definitely not Cash imo

                You guys are probably right, although its a DGW I doubt either of them will be CS for Burnley.

            Conundrum time:

            Trippier + Mads
            Or
            Botman + Son

            Assists, clean sheets and assists
            Or
            Clean sheets and goals...

              Trippier and Maddison.

              Not even close decision for me.
