    Good luck to everyone who made the draw.

      Only the strongest managers in the land made the tourney!

        I loves me a good raffle! Any tickets left? I'd like 5 if at all possible.

      Martinelli starts upfront for Brazil. Jesus not in the squad.

        Jesus is just alright

      Can't decide whether to do
      A) Cash to Guehi
      B) Cash to Tsimikas
      C) Alvarez to striker up to 7.5...?who?
      D) Something else?

      1FT 0.6mil ITB

      Current team:

      Areola
      Porro, Gabriel, Cash
      Saka, Mitoma, Salah, Bowen, Son
      Alvarez, Haaland
      (Turner, Archer, Lascelles, Kabore)

          what about selling mitoma to diaby or hee-chan?
          A and B is fine. But if you do B, you might need to start Lascelles

            If he's injured I will sell Mitoma. But it'll most likely be for Mbeumo as that was the plan for the week after anyway. Thanks.

        Any early suggestion here, lads? 1.9 itb. 1 ft.

          Haaland ankle injury in last few minutes of Norway game annoying. Pep is not pleased to say the least. Hopefully not too bad

              Nothing, this guy just likes to pretend to be a City insider

            "He got a slight twist in his ankle, where he is a bit vulnerable. It hurts a lot right away, and then it goes away pretty quickly. Then we'll see tomorrow how he is then."

          City now have injuries to Rodri, Haaland, Nunes, Kovacic, Stones, Ake, Gomez at a crucial time

          1. Wobbles
            • 3 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            Rodri also?

            Mine analysis suggests a Liverpool boilover, perhaps 3-1.

            • 8 Years

            One would expect Nunes, Kovacic, Ake will all be fit for the next PL game ... so will Haaland and Rodri with their internal break 'discomfort'

            Not this week. Would consider the 2 transfers for free next week. Would wait to see if any injuries from IB you might need to sort out

          3. thang nguyen

              for me, yes. I dont like Everton players. Your defence looks bad and no backup

          4. Scalper
            • 7 Years
            6 months, 12 days ago

            A) Palmer + Saka

            B) Mbeumo + Martinelli

            1. Dynamic Duos
              • 10 Years

              A

              A. Martinelli might be upfront for Brazil but has done pretty much bugger all in Arsenal colours.

                They don’t bother not talking out loud about their hate secrets when I’m nearby because they think I’m deaf and dumb. Everybody think so. I’m cagey enough to fool them that much. If my being half Indian ever helped me in any way in this dirty life, it helped me being cagey, helped me all these years.

                    Not him; he was a bloody aberration in a decade that preached peace and love. A perverted and pathological fantasist, he used his devious powers of manipulation to snare others into his depraved web of hatred and violence, attracting a small band of twisted devotees who were prepared to commit cold-blooded murder on his command.

            If Haaland is out, Haaland + Jota -> Alvarez + Salah for free?

              If out, absolutely do that.

            Tough 1st round against Hornet for me, who betrays his name by running with zero Watford players.

            Did anyone see how bad the Haaland injury looked?

              I think he played out the rest of the game but looked in pain

                Pain's not bad. It's good. It teaches you things. Like when you put your hand in fire: Ow! You know not to do that again.

                  The meatshield won't be playing footy again is what I take from that. Shame, but at least it shakes up the captaincy debate.

              Was just about to post this. Minor injury or something more?

                6 months, 11 days ago

                I was planning on getting him back for GW14 but if his ankle is bad, then I could possibly delay the move. I am quite happy to have kept Alvarez all this time.

              I watched the match live. When he went down he started to hit the ground and the stretcher was on the way into the field.
              Two medic did something to him on the field, and after a minute or so he came on. He did play the last minutes but you could see he played with paln when he limped around. But he did walk around without any ice or bandage when he thanked the audience after the match.

            2-0 wins on the bounce now for Uruguay against Brazil then Argentina with Nunez scoring in both

              Nunez is so frustrating.. I own him and he should have got me 20/30pts the past 3 GW..

            Is there an article anywhere on the African Cup of nations impact on FPL?

            By my reading it could be 4 gameweeks missed for players who make it to the final, right? (Gw21-25) and almost identical timescales for the Asian cup.

            I've held my wildcard this far so thinking I may as well plan to use it gw19 and clear out son, salah, mitoma and any other african/Asian players I have at the time, as well as bringing haaland back in after his blank!

            1. The Mentaculus

              • 2 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Neale is working on it now apparently. I think GW20 is the first GW they all miss

            2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
              • 3 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Think they'll still be available for GW19 though (and Son and Salah have superb fixtures v Brighton and Burnley respectively). GW20 is my target at the minute unless something else comes up, given City potentially will double then, although there's still the possibility that some of those players heading off will be available for fixtures then if they're allowed to join up with the squads a little later than the rest (think this happened with Salah last time?). Neale said he'll have an article up on it today in any case

            3. FOO FIGHTER
              • 4 Years

              I am also still on the fence on whether to bring back Haaland GW14 or just ride it out till after his blank.

              With this ankle issue , wonder if Pep is going to give him less minutes? Will see what happens vs LFC and take it from there. Plus, I have done considerably well without Haaland but when the Afcon and the Asian cup starts, you will need him.

                What's your OR without Haaland ?

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 4 Years
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  It was at 2.5m when I still had him, now I am at 834k. 100k is still in touching distance.

              2. George Sillett
                • 8 Years
                6 months, 11 days ago

                Is an OR of 843k without Haaland considered to be "doing considerably well " ?

                1. FOO FIGHTER
                  • 4 Years
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  Well there are people drowning in the 10 millions still capping Haaland every week so yes.

                  1. George Sillett
                    • 8 Years
                    6 months, 11 days ago

                    Really ? Must only be dead teams.

                        Drowning in the 10 millions must be the one week wonder merchants. Oh dear

                          So everyone on here has a better rank than me with Haaland 😆 Makes them sh*te players as well 😆

                          The logic...

                          1. George Sillett
                            • 8 Years
                            6 months, 11 days ago

                            Strange one that. I don't recall stating everyone on here has a better rank than you with Haaland or did I imagine it ?

                            1. FOO FIGHTER
                              • 4 Years
                              6 months, 11 days ago

                              Well I consider a rank from 2.5m to 834k pretty good going when majority on here were scaremongering "Haaland will punish you"

                              Blah blah blah.

                              1. George Sillett
                                • 8 Years
                                6 months, 11 days ago

                                I also haven't disputed that isn't a significant rank gain. Similarly many with Haaland have made huge rank gains .

                                Which GW was your highest score?

                                And how much was it?

                                Why are you getting defensive? They're just asking questions out of curiosity from the looks of it. You should also probably include that you've used most of your chips by now

                                Has he ?

                                My highest score was in GW9, 102 points, without Haaland.

                                GW12, 91 points, still without Haaland.

                                My highest score with Haaland, GW4, 84 points.

                                My team has been on an upward trajectory without Haaland so I don't know what you are arguing for.

                                I'm not arguing I'm discussing , big difference. You must have also had a string of bang average weeks. My OR certainly hasn't suffered owning Haaland

                                Well I did not say you are suffering without Haaland. You are trying to find things wrong without those who don't own him 😆

                                Where did I say that ? You're making things up again.

                                Is an OR of 843k without Haaland considered to be "doing considerably well " ?

                                Oh dear

                                No I was specifically referring to your own OR ( oh dear ). I know some whose OR is way better than that and who don't own Haaland .

                                Yes, some don't own Haaland or Salah and could be better off than you and me.

                                Point is, you are trying to find problems with not owning Haaland otherwise you would not carry on telling replying about how shi*te my rank is 😆 without Haaland.

                                Felt sure they said they took -4 and used BB this week and I know they used TC on Haaland v SHU

                              16. FOO FIGHTER
                                • 4 Years

                                Points are points. My BB worked out and gained me a green arrow.

                                And yes, I used my TC on Haaland vs SHU and was an utter flop. Others used their TC on Haaland as well already and flopped.

                                What is your point?

                              17. George Sillett

                                I didn't say that either . Again that is something you've made up. Where did I state that your rank is sh*te ? Rather I stated that it was not doing considerably well . There's a very big difference.
                                My observation is that my current rank would not be anywhere near where it is currently if I hadn't owned Haaland from day one .

                                And I can say I would not have broken the million barrier if I still owned Haaland.

                                You are just making stuff up.

                                What have I made up ?
                                Please enlighten me .

                                My point is that you should probably preface your points with that. You have made good ground for sure but you're misrepresenting things a bit by just saying you climbed up to that without Haaland and with using nothing else, or that you just got 91pts this week without a -4 or BB behind it

                                I must be suffering from amnesia too as I don't recall asking for a pat on the back. Strange to find that you continually evade the question. Wonder why ?

                                Agreed. Have a read through it and then realise that you've taken rather a Walter Mitty approach to interpreting what I've said

                                Having read through it, you are just trying to prove yourself right when I had nothing negative to say.

                                Maybe go read again.

                                Foo Fighters is one of my favourite all time bands. In recent times, not listened to much of their music though.

                                A further read through reveals an individual who just makes things up to support their point and when questioned about it has no answer. Try basing your discussions on fact in future .

              Depends on when the players need to join up with their countries.

                Maybe jan 7th. Won’t affect gw20 anyway

                  Well nobody knows?

                  After the blank, there is GW19 and 20. GW21 the Afcon and Asian Cup will be underway.

                  Players are not going to rock up 24 hours before they need to play for their countries.

                2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  Unlikely for sure, but never know what plans some teams have, especially given what happened with the last AFCON (big delay due to covid) and given this one is happening 6 months late. Been a while since anyone had a steady AFCON build up

              6 months, 11 days ago

              GW20 runs up to 2nd Jan (Liverpool play 1st). Thought they had 10 days or so prep for AFCON last time but I could be wrong; only just started a provisional look at this

              1. The Mentaculus
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member

                6 months, 11 days ago

                Ah ok so actually in 2021 PL players were originally scheduled to leave on 31/12 (with the 1st AFCON fixture 09/01) but then it got extended to 03/01. Maybe the same happens again this season but I haven't seen it confirmed

                1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
                  • 3 Years
                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  Ah fair enough my mistake then

                    6 months, 11 days ago

                    Maybe... looks like it could still be either 20/21 potentially. 21 would actually be easier to manage as we could stagger the Salah/Son downgrades, losing Salah before NEW to fund City doublers, while keeping Son for BOU

                    1. Nate(U)dog(ie)
                      • 3 Years

                      Yeah even if I'm using WC I may do just that actually. Guess we'll have to see what shape both sides are in given Maddison will still be out and perhaps Bournemouth are beginning to turn the tide (although I still think they look a mess defensively)

                      Salah > KDB GW20 or Son > KDB GW21?

              Doubt the GW20 fixtures are disrupted at all, so agreed with that.

              AFCON tournament due to start on January 13, 2024.

              In 2022 an initial 10-day window was shrunk to six days before the kickoff and a similar situation could occur for the 2024 competition.

              A confirmed date for squads is also yet to be announced and is likely to be as late as possible, as previous tournaments

                6 months, 11 days ago

                That player list could do with an update. Also seems to be an error saying 1st WC available up to GW19 when you can actually still play it in GW20

            I predicted Haaland’s injury in gw 4.

            Now the next player on my list is Saka.

            1. George Sillett

                  Saka plays when he is "half dead" when it comes to Arteta.

                  Think way too much has been made of him "being injured".

                  1. PartyTime
                    • 2 Years
                    6 months, 11 days ago

                    Not good to wish players get injured but it would kinda help, people should have different picks.
                    Saka is due a lengthy one.

              So it's not a complete winter break. Also, Carabao Cup semis and FA Cup 4th round before GW22.

                It's a staggered winter break of a fortnight, but not the same fortnight for all.

                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  ... but players going to AFCON or the Asian Cup don't get a winter break at all!

            Looks like Martinelli scored and played 90 minutes last night... guessing he's fine then

              Adingra too I think. Just realised he's under 3% but feels like more around here. Could mean we finally get a few weeks of a nailed Fati

                6 months, 11 days ago

                Yeah, I thought Adingra would have higher ownership given the recent chat. Also thought Awoniyi, Kudus and Tomiyasu might have been higher, but no. One's to to be aware of though, perhaps. Would be good to Fati playing more mins. Could be the time 🙂

              Thanks. Hmm. Salah, Son, Mbeumo & Mitoma owner. This is going to be costly both in sell-on fees and number of transfers involved.

                Mitoma potentially injured now mind (withdrew from Japan squad the other day)

                  6 months, 11 days ago

                  Think its a real injury this time or another fatigue break? Seems like an unspecified "not 100%" from what I've seen

                  1. Sheffield Wednesday
                    • 3 Years
                    6 months, 11 days ago

                    "Knock" hopefully not serious/long lasting. Default is to field him this week knowing my bench can cover him.

                  2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
                    • 3 Years
                    6 months, 11 days ago

                    Haven't a clue honestly, but the fact he was with the squad and left always makes me think it's a bit bigger than a small issue and I doubt he would have wanted to miss two sets of games for Japan in a row

                  Yeah, he was on my transfer shortlist anyway. Would have fancied him v NFO but he could be first to go if confirmed injured. Wait'n'see what other issues arise in the next week.

            Low TV, on a WC!

            Areola ¦ Strakosha
            TAA Gabriel Guehi
            Salah Saka Bowen Mbeumo Eze
            Haaland Nkunku
            | Archer Lascelles Taylor

            Guehi, Eze -> James, Palmer in 16.

            Thoughts, please?

            1. CONNERS
              • 5 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              Looks quite good, although I'd prefer someone like Solanke as a short-term punt over Nkunku.

              1. Slitherene
                • 6 Years
                6 months, 11 days ago

                It's either Solanke, Palmer or Nkunku, Eze. I feel Eze's next 3 have most potential.

            2. Botman and Robben
              • 7 Years

              You should place your TV higher on the living room wall with proper wall brackets.

              For your team, it looks good.

                • 6 Years

                Now that would be a hassle, to change it with every price rise.

          18. Haaland injury update

            • 2 Years
            6 months, 11 days ago

            The Norwegian side's doctor Ola Sand provided an update on the striker after the game and insists he is liaising with City's medical team. Sand said per Vg: “It was much of the same that happened against Bournemouth a week and a half ago. He has had it before too. He gets a slight twist in his ankle, where he is a bit vulnerable. It hurts a lot right away, and then it goes away pretty quickly.

            Sounds like Haaland will be fit for Liverpool. However, if this is becoming a recurring issue, I can see Pep "managing his minutes" especially during the crunch time.

            I wanted to bring Haaland back in soon (actually when KDB is fit again) but might wait now and see how this is going to develop.

            1. Dion D's Solo Shower
              • 6 Years
              6 months, 11 days ago

              If you're only going to bring in Haaland when KDB is fit again, then this automatically becomes a "wait and see" for you.

              1. Kane not win a trophy
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 2 Years

                No, not only. The latest date is City's DGW, but it might happen earlier.

                But imagine DGW for City and Pep managing Haalands minutes like in that Bournemouth match.

                    DGW and Haaland only plays 60 mins in one game lol

                      He only played 45 minutes. 🙂

                    Thing is it's probably the same case for KDB and basically everyone else. Especially if KDB is fit then I can't see many others around that will avoid rotation including Alvarez. Funnily enough Haaland is likely the one who will end up with two starts and the most minutes. Only Walker has played more minutes than him in the PL and only those two and Alvarez have started every game, and in all comps no-one has started as many games as Haaland (18) or played more minutes than him. Last season wasn't far off that too (only behind Ederson and Rodri for PL starts and minutes and the same case for all comps).

                    Sounds like KDB might not be too far away now though judging by his own comments from a week or so ago and Pep's comments from the other day

                    1. Kane not win a trophy
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 2 Years
                      6 months, 11 days ago

                      Just to be clear. I'm not planning to get KDB. But as you said, when he is back other City midfielders are likely to get fewer minutes than Haaland.

                      However, if Haalands ankle remains at risk, we might see some of Peps rotation fun which could be a game changer.

                      I just want to be sure whether it is worth moving back to Haaland or keeping Alvarez instead.

                    Hot damn.

                    Even with that they probably surivire this year given their form, plus the quality of relegation candidates.

                    ... Chelsea & Man City backing into the hedge as we speak.

                      It could either galvanise the team and fans and they go on to have a stellar season, avoiding relegation, or it might demoralise them, they collapse, get relegated, and then with suffer wilderness for years to come.

                        The atmosphere at Goodison next weekend should certainly be interesting

                      They will appeal, but I do certainly find it interesting that, despite charges being brought against Man City, there was no initial points deduction, and it seems like they're being given plenty of time to fight their case before anything is decided in terms of prospective punishment, while they have had no issues in handing out an immediate punishment to Everton. Although maybe the circumstances differ here for all I know

                        Everton might be banged to rights. A case of strict liability. City case may be more complex.

                          The compleCity is that some teams earn sh** loads of money in the CL while others don't even qualify for the second round in the FA Cup.

                      If only this could have been applied last season... we could all have had Gnonto & Ayling still 🙁

                    Astonishingly good news for the likes of Luton.

                    We sold our best players to stay within the FFP, if other clubs get away with it what would be the point of trying so hard to stay within the rules?

                      I’m sure the Leicester board room is an interesting place at the moment. With so much money play it’s hard to see there not being lawsuits to follow this.

                    They'll deduct Everton but City will get left alone.......oil money goes deep it seems

                    Can't wait for James's four hour planet FPL pod about this.

                    Harsh penalty, case really proves honesty not the best policy

                    Everton should’ve refused to cooperate, hidden their books, etc. like a certain club wearing a different shade of blue.

                    Or you know, found 5 mates and tried to start a breakaway league and then just waltz back in without punishment when there’s a backlash…

                  small clubs getting ****** again. chelsea and city are like the privileged white American students accused of serious crimes at their fraternity but who had "their whole futures in front of them" and get away with it thanks a to some great character references and the best lawyers available

                    I'm surprised ManU is not considered a WASPy student anymore.
