      No real fires to put out, just thinking of selling Saka as no longer nailed on pens.

      Areola
      Andersen / Tsimikas / Cash
      Salah / Saka / Maddison / Diaby / Bowen
      Haaland / Alvarez

      Leno / Archer / Saliba / Botman is the bench
      Got 1 FT & 0.5 ITB.

      Thinking of downgrading Bowen next week to give me the extra funds to change Saka to Son. Wise move or not worth it?

        Easy save this week.

        Where do you have that info bout Saka? He just didn't took because of sub

        1. Nozzer7474
            3 months, 24 days ago

            They have had either 2 or 3 penalties where he has been on the pitch but others have taken them.

          Saka is sensational and Bowen nearly had a hattrick v Everton, you need to watch some football

          1. Nozzer7474
              3 months, 24 days ago

              I watched the West Ham game and Bowen was far from nearly getting a hat trick.

                • 7 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                He missed at least 3 very easy chances, on another day they go in

        3. aapoman

          1ft and 0.6itb.

          Johnstone
          Pau Saliba Schär
          Salah Son Maddison Diaby Palmer
          Haaland Watkins

          Turner; Udogie*, Kabore, Mubama

          Save ft or sell Udogie? WC still available

            Save. Loads of good fixtures to target next week and you'll appreciate 2FTs and 0.6 to use them with.

          2. WVA

            Is Udogie out again?

          Diaz down and Szoboszlai up, ah. Lost 0.2, wasn't expecting that. Well, now they're up I can wait for more information on Diaz situation I guess. Depressing stuff, not for me but for him and his family.

          1. WVA
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Morris has dropped 0.2 in past few days too, surely he wasn't that highly owned

          Areola doesn't look like he'll have a clean sheet in him gameweek 15-20. Time to shift?

          1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Which goalkeeper is having regular clean sheets?

            1. Toon lurk
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Just going by fixtures I mean. Not moving now but is GW15 time to move? tot, ful, WOL, MUN ars, BRI looks horrible and for me ful, WOL in particularly looked far more likely to be clean sheets a few weeks ago than they do now

              To answer your question, I'd assess at the time

              1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Yes!

              2. Toon lurk
                • 6 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Maybe Raya, Good fixtures and price. Chelsea defensive stats are good.

                3 months, 24 days ago

                Even up to 15 I'm not sure where the CS are coming from. Burnely maybe. But Palace should have Olise & Eze back by 14

                1. Toon lurk
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  I think next 4 for Areola you have to stick. I'd hope for at least 2 CSs.

                  • 5 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Edmond Barack reporting that Eze and Olise are both back in first team training, however it is unclear whether both will be available for Burnley.

                  (I knew Olise was back on the grass over ITB, and Eze eas 100% last week, but maybe before

                  https://londonnewsonline.co.uk/duo-return-to-crystal-palace-first-team-training/

                  I am hopeful , but not to rush them back either. I would hope the guys are used if needed against Burnely, and may start V Everton.

                  This will help Palace keep more possession and, therefore more CS.

              Raya's doing nicely at 5 PPM

                I swear I didn't see this when I posted above 😀

                  I believe you 🙂

                  Even I didn't. But trust Menta to do all the analysis.

              2. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Agree. But with most teams having Haaland, Son, Salah, Watkins and Saka there isn't a better option than Areola I think,

                1. The Mentaculus
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • Has Moderation Rights
                  • 2 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Oh yeah I know when I was tinkering with Haaland & Salah setups I always ended upsqueezing the keepers down to Areola & 3.9m as Raya meant yet another outfield sacrifice. Hopefully this is one of the small edges gained by my one premium structure

                  • 6 Years

                  5 weeks is a long time!

            Areola is playing really well to be fair, no-one worth replacing him with at the moment

        6. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Correct playing 11?

          Areola
          Porro Castagne Cash
          Salah Son Saka Luiz
          Haaland Alvarez Watkins

          Strakosha Taylor Burn Anderson

          Thanks!

            • 7 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Personally, I'd go Taylor over Castagne.

            1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              That's the choice I need to make. I rate similar CS potential for both. Castagne with a better attacking potential, maybe?

              1. ameisin
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 7 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                For all the shambles that they currently are, I'd still rate Man U's forwards more than Palace. However, Fulham are obviously a much tighter ship than Burnley.

                Not sure if there's much difference in their attacking output, but I suspect Palace will invite Burnley onto them more than in the other game.

                Bit of a toss up and just one of those where you have to go with your gut and not regret it!

              2. ameisin

                • 7 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Maybe consider the individual match-ups too.

                Castagne vs Rashford + Lindelof/Arambat?

                Taylor vs Ayew + Ward

                1. DARK SIDE OF THE LOON
                  • 7 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Agree! Thanks.

          Think my transfer this week will be Kaboré > Baldock.

          Exciting times!

            I am considering Lamptey > Baldock. That 0.1 could come in v handy

            1. ameisin
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Yep that's it - if you're not gonna use it elsewhere it could make all the difference.

              I have 2FTs this week, and more or less happy with the team. 2FTs next week, with 0.2itb will be very nice.

          Play,

          A) Palmer (TOT)
          B) Adingra (EVE)

          1. polis

            The type of FPL call where it'll probably end up being the other one.

            Play one:
            A:Gabriel
            B:Udogie (if fit)
            C:Taylor
            Or alternatively transfer Gabriel->Tsamikas

            1. polis
              • 12 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Would play B and have C first on bench.

            Save, perhaps? Only not keen on Schar v Arsenal. Or I could "improve" my bench by doing Luton Anderson (4M) who's injured, to Taylor 3.9.
            Happy with everyone else's fixtures.

            Areola (Turner)
            Schar / Tsimi / Cash (Udogie* / Anderson*)

            Morning. Either of these worth it for a -4 to get Salah in? Essentially losing Saka or Bowen.

            a) Saka, Maddison, Trippier -> Salah, Mbeumo, Taylor
            b) Maddison, Bowen, Trippier -> Salah, Gordon/

            Anyone considering any United for GWs 12&13? If so, who?! 🙂

            1. Baps hunter
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Nope, but Trippier to Harry Maguire is not impossible. B&B are cheaper though. Salah, Son, Saka and Maddison block Bruno imho.

              1. Øgaard it's Haa…
                • 1 Year
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Haha. I still have Botman and AWB looks like he's returning soon. But I guess Dalot will keep his place even so.

              Hard pass 🙂
              They'll have to show me some form before I even consider it, regardless of fixtures

                3 months, 24 days ago

                🙂 Yeah, when you look at them you think even LUT & EVE could take points off them. I shall banish any consideration of them from my mind.

                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Yeah I wouldn't even fancy the Everton game tbh. Luton maybe but it'll probably just be another Burnley / Sheff Utd situation

          • We Go Again
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            1 FT available, which option

            A) Gabriel -> Tsimikas and start Tsimikas
            B) Start Gabriel
            C) Start Taylor

            1. ShaunGoater123
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              any other way to get Tsimikas?

              1. We Go Again
                • 9 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Only 0.1 itb and my bench defenders are Taylor and Lamptey, so no. 2 FT makes it much easier to upgrade the bench to someone like Tsimikas though

                1. ShaunGoater123
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  I would keep Gabriel. Tough fixutre this week but think he was rested and will be back for the run.

                  2FT's next week will be handy for flexibility so i'd start Gabriel

                  1. We Go Again

              I'd disappoint me (or you actually) with B. It is still possible that Gabriel was rested, but I don't buy it. So perhaps after all 😉 Literally, try coin toss!?!

                So perhaps B after all...

                Even if he starts I'm not sure they can keep a clean sheet away at Newcastle.

            Morning all,

            Thinking of just Downgrading Neto (goalie) to a 3.9 goalie this week to free up some money for Anderson upgrade next week. Sound ok?

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

            Neto / Burn / Anderson / Lamptey

                Haha you can sometimes get caught up eyeballing the colours for pivots without actually looking at the matches

            Hadn't a clue Newcastle playing 2nite and brought in Gordon for Neto coz I was sure he was gonna drop?

              Hoping for a rest. Didn't look at his sharpest v Wolves. From what I've heard I expect extensive rotation for Newcastle

            Who to drop for Haaland? Thinking it has to be alvarez but such a great fixture next!

            A) Alvarez
            B) Watkins
            C) Darwin

              why do you want haaland now? everyone who sold him knew this fixture was coming.

                3 months, 24 days ago

                Yeah I'm 50/50, had a good 4 weeks without him...just feels a disadvantage to not have him now long term...even though the fixtures do turn after this week.

                3 months, 24 days ago

                Yeah but they didn't expect him to haul vs an awful MU defence(and team in general atm).

                1. Baps hunter
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  Didn't they? Didn't he get something like 5 returns last season (unchecked hearsay by a certain youtuber) and had the mighty Maguire to play against this time.

                  1. raoulduke71
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 6 Years
                    3 months, 24 days ago

                    I actually had a bet on him to score 2+ goals to ease the pain!

                    1. Baps hunter
                      • 6 Years
                      3 months, 24 days ago

                      Last season was my worst. However, every time, barring one, when I made 50/50 call and bet a tenner to ease the pain, I won it and/or bottle of decent red wine 🙂

            2. Baps hunter
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              A, but is it really worth it?

                Yeah maybe not...Alvarez outscored Haaland the week before - hopefully he just wanted some more united revenge

              erling has to get the armband imo

                I agree

                1. Baps hunter
                  • 6 Years
                  3 months, 24 days ago

                  So do I. Bookies odds for Erling to score are all time lowest. You don't get money ftom brace either and even hattie was 10 or something like that.

              Saliba vs Trippier is interesting one.

            What would you do with one of two transfers if you had my team?

            Areola, Turner

              3 months, 24 days ago

              hmm, maybe soucek to either cheap fodder (you have enough bench coverage) to free up money, or just Soucek to Palmer now rather then in a few weeks time

              • 9 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              I'd maybe downgrade Porro to Guehi/Pinnock. Then do Maddison to Saka this week or next.

              At some point maybe downgrade Alvarez to fodder to do Soucek to Mbuemo as well?

                • 6 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                Thanks. These moves are worth considering. Thank you Tripod

              • 9 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Probably Porro to a palace defender like Guehi. Gives you enough itb to get Saka for Maddison GW12

                • 6 Years
                3 months, 24 days ago

                I'll consider this. Might be the moves. Thank you

            Pick one to start:

            A) Taylor (CRY h)
            B) Gab (NEW a)

            C) Pope/Bruno/Semenyo -> Johnstone/Mitoma/Darwin -4. Bruno could also be Diaz.

            Or other suggestions?
