    Anything on the wire re Robbo's injury today? Scotland had a presser but Im guessing he's gone back to Liverpool for assessment?

    2FT, £0.0 ITB, thoughts?

    Areola - Turner
    Trppier - Cash - Botman - Udogie - Kabore
    Salah - Son - Maddison - Diaby - JWP
    Haaland - Alvarez - Archer

      Wait for news on Botman but watch for price rise on Burn.

      Maybe risk going without Son and get Bowen. Use cash on Kabore to an Arse def?

      Youve got options and squad is solid enough.

    For the forseeable future which 2 from:

    A Bowen
    B Saka (if fit) No other Ars attack
    C Maddison (No other Tot attack)

    Wildcard sandwich and cant have 'em all.

        Interesting. Consistent with my thoughts though but I thought Maddison would have been the fall guy. Cheers man.

                Class. Did you write all of this yourself? A good point well argued and evidenced. You clearly did your research and have spent a long time polishing your post. Resonates with many I'm sure and this site is a better place for the apostrophe, I'm certain we all agree. Thank you.

          Abandoned at HT. Awful. Just awful.
          Football will always transcend terrorist acts but doesnt make any difference to those who have lost their lives and their families.

                Not enough evidence unfortunately

                    What do you mean unfortunately? If there is no or not enough evidence then someone can't be convicted and there is no case. Thankfully people are innocent until proven guilty, regardless of people like you. I hope you get accused of something, maliciously and wrongly, then you will change your tune.

                      Don't be so naive. He is a repeat offender.
                      As for saying 'people like me' then willing me to be accused of something...kind of rich, don't you think?

                          My comment is crystal clear. Oh apologies, didn't realise he has been convicted and is now classified as a repeat offender. I will go with the law and not someone's opinion over the internet.

                            Good for you. You carry on defending people like him, and having utter faith in the legal system. Hopefully one day you'll grow up and realise it's fallible. Especially when people have money.

                                I will continue to defend people that have not been found guilty of any crime over peoples feelings and the kangaroo court of public opinion, including yours. Yes, that is what I will keep doing. You are also free to believe whatever you want and continue doing what you do best. Thankfully, your opinions are no basis for a prosecution in a court of law.

                            On what basis? What's your source? Guilty unless proven otherwise?

                              There's definitely two sides to this one but we aren't in the know either way and this isn't me taking sides. Clearly one person here has their own ideas about this in terms of his guilt or otherwise but actually its not black and white he's innocent here either. Whatever evidence Police had was enough for him to be shut out by Everton and for them to investigate for a long time but not enough to reach court. He's also not suing the authorities and I've not seen any suggestion that the allegations were malicious.

                I've got no way of getting Salah in without sacrificing Son, Bowen and Mitoma for Salah, Gordon and Fodder

                  Put it like A or B and the answer is clear. Not worth it. You simply can't have everyone.

                Hi. For our retrospective article on Eden Hazard's FPL career, I'd love to collect some of the community's best and worst memories of the Belgian.

                Did he haul for you when made captain? Was he a troll? Which of his goals made you shriek?

                1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
                  • 3 Years
                  4 months, 14 days ago

                  His performance against Everton in the 5-0 win in 16/17 is one that always comes to mind when I think of him. Not his best ever performance for Chelsea but he absolutely tore through them, his second goal in particular was superb where his movement left 3 defenders for dead and his finish was so quick that Stekelenburg didn't even move

                  Worst has to be kicking the ballboy and getting sent off?

                3. Sure You Did
                    4 months, 14 days ago

                    Sleeping with the club doctor is the first thing that comes to mind, and kicking the ball boy.

                    1. Now I'm Panicking
                      • 9 Years
                      4 months, 14 days ago

                      What was the ball boy doing there? And why was he near his feet?

                        4 months, 14 days ago

                        Was that the occasion when a rather large ball boy was deliberately lying on the ball in order to waste time by preventing Hazard from retrieving it, and Hazard attempted to kick it from under him? I think the ball boy might have also been the manager's son, or something like that, and he boasted about it on social media afterwards.

                    I wrote an article about jumping on Hazard too late; it destroyed my season. That was the season I realised that FPL wasn't easy after all.

                    He was in the Optimal Dead Team Squad for 2014/15 (a theoretical squad with an initial cost of 100.0m that had to remain entirely unchanged for the whole season, with no transfers, chips or changes of captain, starting eleven or bench order).
                    There where actually two versions of this, either of which would have won FPL that season, 2 points ahead of Simon Marsh.

                    Optimal dead team squad A for 2014-15(3-4-3): (GW1 paper value 100.0, would have finished 1st with 2472 points, 2 points ahead of Simon March, but missed the early points from Costa, Fabregas & Rooney)

                    I owned him from GW1 to GW3 and again from GW16 to GW35. His best sequences were GW16 to GW20 (14*2, 7, 6, 10, 7) and GW30 to 33 (9, 13, 6, 11), and he also had another five double-digit hauls (11 in GW7, 10 in GW10, 11 in GW12, 10 in GW24, 10 in GW28). I captained him four times, but the other three times were less successful (3, 8 and 3+2).

                    One of my fpl guilty pleasures, always did well when I had him.

                    Had him and Fabregas in a Chelsea double up one year and it was wonderful

                    Captaining him when he scored that unreal brace against west ham was great. Think he was a differential that week. So many big hauls through the years. He was often a great captain pick as he was a flat track bully

                      Tried to cover him by having Pedro, later switched to Eden & captained him vs Southampton(A), Watford(A), West ham(H).He hauled in all & scored a worldie against the hammers. 100% captaincy haul record.

                      Happy Retirement sweet Hazard.

                    Probably the thing we'll all remember most unfortunately. 2.0 down and late in the game if I remember correctly. He was class though, no doubt.
