    Chances of Mitoma, Bowen, Watkins, Alvarez or Mo....NOT playing today?

    1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Zero for all

    2. Radulfo28773

      Do you also have Nkethia first on the bench?

        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Serious question, why did you bench Nketiah against SHU?

      Zero imo. Only Cash I would worry about but he will probably still play

    4. jacob1989
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      No chance. All will play

  2. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON

    Neto to:

    A) Adingra
    B) Luiz
    C) Gordon
    D) Palmer

    1. The Mighty Whites
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      C

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I'm warming to the idea of Adingra, however Gordon is probably the safest pick.

      Safe or risky, that's your choice

    3. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      For how long, I am in-out ing the 5th midfielder. Adingra looks good fixture wise albeit risk of rotation. Gordon and Palmer for slightly later GWs.

    4. jacob1989

      D

    1FT, £0.1 ITB, thoughts?

    Areola - Turner
    Cash - Udogie - Gabriel - Tsimikas - Kabore
    Salah - Son - Saka - Maddison - Diaby
    Haaland - Alvarez - Archer

    Gabriel’s burned me all season! Gabriel to Guehi?

    1. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Have you just got Gabriel in? I know it's painful seeing him on the bench this week but you likely bought him for a run of games so I would keep him.

      He was just rested today given the number of games he's played and the opponent in my opinion.

      Udogie to Guehi I prefer. Think Udogie will be back from injuries but not a huge fan of Spurs fixtures defensively for the next while

        Doesn’t sound like it if it’s happened all season.

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          mmm, we'll see

      2. Riverside Red
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I brought Gabriel in this week, had a choice of any Arsenal defender. Should have known better after owning him for the first five game of the season also.

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Sounds fine

    3. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I’d leave it for now.

    4. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I'd hold Gabriel, Arteta's reasoning for it this time sounds legit looking at the evidence

    Just a reminder to everyone: as the clocks changed in Britain this morning, the televised games will be an hour earlier.
    West Ham vs Everton is at 13:00
    Manchester Utd vs Man City 15:30

    1. FPL Blow-In
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Think I prefer these kick off times actually more so than the 14:00 and 16:30

      1. El Presidente

        100%!

  5. Magic Zico
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Would you play Porro (CHE) or Gordon (ARS)?

    1. FPL Blow-In
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Porro probably!

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      really tough one.

      I think I would go Porro aswell, but it's a coin toss one

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Gordon

    4. jacob1989
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Porro

    Mbeumo now being brought in (or back in in many cases, no doubt) by FPL managers, according to FPL Stats, with more than half of the GW left to go.

    The early season knee-jerking seems to go on longer every year. Suppose it’s a function of more managers than ever playing FPL.

    1. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      absolutely, just part of the game and like you say more mangers mean more people who play the game in a reactive way. each to their own.

      1. Hangman Page
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Aye. If anything, I’m too passive and wait too long to make moves, then miss out by 0.1.

        1. ShaunGoater123
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          it's a fine balance. Histroically i've been on the price movements and would make early transfers to catch rises, but this season much more reserved which means I do have a weak TV.

          I think generally though there always tends to be another way to get more or less what you want so it's worth waiting, especially when cup games mid week. Occasionally have to make a judgement call if will be priced out completely, but overall I think you gain more by waiting.

    2. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Isn't it just playing the fixtures in this case? Knee-jerk seems a tad harsh (I haven't owned him all season so no bias here). I mean, Mbeumo v che/liv/ARS doesn't really look as good as Mitoma v eve/SHU etc..? I think the real question is whether "playing the fixtures" is so straightforward for a side like Brentford who tend to pretty competitive against the bigger sides rather than smashing weaker ones..?

  7. El Presidente
    • 4 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    With the Diaz situation he probably misses today... shame he was a good differential

    1. lilmessipran
      • 11 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Have Diaz, and Porro first on bench who lost his cleanie rather controversially as well.

      1. El Presidente
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        ouch

    2. ShaunGoater123
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      yeha I would have thought no chance he plays to.

      Hopefully they can get his Dad back safely ASAP

      1. El Presidente
        • 4 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Obviously that's the most important thing

    3. ⭐ Bemba_Da ⭐
      • 14 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I thought he was in Colombia, no chance he plays and rightly so. His family is the paramount importance and football is simply a job to him and takes little importance.

    4. jacob1989
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      What exactly happened? Benched or doesn't play at all?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Family member kidnapped

  8. ShaunGoater123
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    Super skinny bench so hoping Lamptey is involved in some capacity today but early thoughts are to take out Neto next week for a 3.9 goalie to free up funds to upgrade E. Anderson the following week.

    Areola
    Porro / Cash / Tsimikas
    Bowen / Saka / Son / Salah
    Watkins / Archer / Haaland

    Neto / Lamptey / Burn / E. Anderson

    1FT 0.0 ITB

    1. El Presidente
      • 4 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I don't think he will

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I'm not convinced either. Maybe even just a hint that he will be back next week would be enough for me!

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Could just bring in Nakamba now for a playing bench

      1. ShaunGoater123
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        yep that's true.

        I obviously need to get rid of Neto and think that if I put that money into say Adingra it means I can play him over Archer most weeks, plus have a route to Palmer later on. Obviously Adingra carries playing risk aswell

        1. Hotdogs for Tea
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          Not sure it's worth having one playing keeper though ... could get Turner.

          You really don't want to be starting Archer so maybe do it properly and down grade Porro or Bowen and get a decent 5th mid to rotate as your 11th starter ?

          Sort out the keeper out later

          1. ShaunGoater123
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            6 months, 27 days ago

            yeah fair points. Annoyingly I had Turner but took him out on WC as thought he'd lose his place.

            Can't seem to get up to a decent mid which are in and around the 6m mark, even with downgrading Porro to a 4.5 defender. Can only get to about 5.5 max

            1. Hotdogs for Tea
              • 8 Years
              6 months, 27 days ago

              Can't have them all

              Good luck whatever you go for

      I need him this week, only 2 defenders otherwise!
      Shame Mbeumo can’t come on for Udogie 😆

    What's your score prediction for the United versus City match?

    1. SEXY SOLO SAUCE FOR THE LAS…
      • 7 Years

      7-7 - Alvarez 4 Haaland 3, all assisting each other
      McTominay x7 for United, no assists

      1. Monklane

        That's good enough for me. I'm going to bet everyting I own on this outcome.

  10. AD2110

    Need to get Neto out of my team. Best options with 2FT?

    A) Neto —> Gordon / Palmer
    B) Neto + Bowen —> Mitoma + Mbeumo
    C) Neto + Maddison —> Palmer + Saka

    1. drughi
      • 14 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      A

  11. Derbz87
    • 9 Years
    6 months, 27 days ago

    So my interpretation of Neale's explanation on Gabriel is Arteta has the hump because Gabriel won't pull out of Brazil games with fictional injuries but Saliba is happy to do so for France. Saliba has played every minute of league and champions league so far.

  15. Yozzer

    Made an error bringing in Trips on my WC I think. Convinced myself he was fixture proof but starting to question that . What are people doing with him?

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Feeling smug that I benched him this week 😀

      Still, I wouldn't call it a mistake. I see some are turned off by the fixtures but up to GW19 there's only ARS/tot that I don't fancy, and even then I don't really mind playing him next week at home. Even though I've stretched my budget a bit with Trent, I still see Trippier as more of a long-term hold (especially since locked in at 6.5) whereas Trent is just for 6-7 GWs

      1. Yozzer
        • 6 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        Good call with the benching.

        They are a different beast at home for sure. It was a 50 50 for me . Could have kept Cash and gone Mitoma over Adingra so let's see how much it hurts me . I had .3 value tied up in Trips and that helped my decision. Just hope I am not sunk by gw19. Patience in this game is rewarded less and less as the years go by

    2. Hotdogs for Tea
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Good attackers will give a FPL attacking return one game in every 2.5 games, Tripper will do that and get the clean sheet every now and then and mop up the bonus points.

      It was a big fat zero this week but he is one of those players you just hold and start every game and take whatever you get from him, imho.

      1. yeahbuddy
        • 12 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        This
        Play him every week, never going to be a 100% return rate

  16. The Big Larsbowski

    Trippier/Kulusevski to Tsimikas/Son for -4?

    1. mrelpea
      • 7 Years

      I would. I’m doing Maddi/Trips to Son/Saliba after cup games

      1. mrelpea
        • 7 Years

        Son will be right up there for Golden boot this season

    Diaz’s parents have been kidnapped. His mother has been rescued but his dad is still missing. Not that this matters in the grand scheme of things, but as this is an FPL site, I suspect he won’t be playing today…..

    1. Shultan
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      I assume Diaz is in or will be going to Colombia.
      Hope his father can be rescued safely soon

        I'm reading reports that his father has been rescued after a shoot-out.

        1. lilmessipran
          • 11 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          I think that came from the mirror who seemed to have then deleted their article.

    2. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      kidnapping for ransom payments is relatively common in S America.

      ... Awful practice and it's got to affect the player too.

  18. sovietrockettes
    • 5 Years

    Why are they televising the West Ham - Everton match instead of say Liverpool -Forest?

    1. AC/DC AFC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      because Liverpool get loads of TV slots.

      this is the Europa hangover ....

      they've vowed to televise all games in the UK in the Sunday 2pm slot.

      so just hang on ... until 2025/26 I think!!

    2. Old Bull
      • 10 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      So we can see Bowen score a hattie

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        I wish I'd just done Sterling to Bowen .... and ignored Saka for now.

        And kept Mbeumo in the process.

    3. Shultan
      • 8 Years
      6 months, 27 days ago

      Each broadcaster is subjected to restrictions on the number of times they can show each team live per season to ensure fair distribution of TV revenue

      Liverpool tend to get the most televised games

      1. Shultan
        • 8 Years
        6 months, 27 days ago

        So they probably decided to avoid liverpool vs Nottingham forest in order to show more high profile liverpool matches

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          6 months, 27 days ago

          exactly this ...

          Liverpool shouldn't be in the Europa if they don't want a rest day on a Friday and Monday with the early Sunday afternoon games.

        To your Q, I'd say just try to do some taxing arithmetic in your head all day, like trying to work out the surface area of Earth, or the sq route of 5 to several decimal places. Get that brain ticking over!

      Burn if you have Trippier (assuming you have cover for Gabriel in case it turns out he wasn’t just rested)
