    KDB...you know you want it...

    1. Casual Player
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 hours ago

      He’s not in the article, I’m only considering Werner and this Dragon bloke

    2. g40steve

      Almost on 80% on fplstats

      1. gart888

        3 months, 11 hours ago

        And Bowen at -100% when it looks like he may not miss a single league game. People are weird.

          Any new news on Bowens fittness?

  2. Casual Player

    Surely he solves the rubik cube in 45 secs not 45 mins!

      Good to see its been fixed 🙂

        Wow. Really not a lot of activity on here today

        1. Casual Player
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 9 hours ago

          xRC is an important new underlying metric!

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      I couldn't even take it apart in 45 seconds, let alone do it properly in 45 minutes.

      1. Casual Player
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        I can't do it at all, but my 10yo can do it in about 1 min so wasn't going to be impressed by a grown man doing it in 45 mins!

  3. KeanosMagic

    3 months, 11 hours ago

    I'm coming round to the idea of ditching Pau, Gabriel, Watkins and Saka over the next few weeks to get in Trippier, Van Hecke, Haaland and Salah (when he's back). Van Hecke would be bench fodder in a 352.

    No brainer, right?

    1. Utopsis
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Watkins will punish you, who are your other strikers?

      1. KeanosMagic
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 11 hours ago

        Would be Haaland and Solanke, Archer in reserve.

        I know Watkins is decent. But rarely hauls, Haaland obviously better

        1. Utopsis
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 11 hours ago

          I wouldn't say he rarely hauls - 3 double digit ones this season. I'd sooner sell Solanke than Watkins, you'll want him back as soon as you sell.

          Or have Haaland Watkins Solanke with a cheapie mid like Garnacho or Chukuemeka?

          1. Alan Watts
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 10 hours ago

            Watkins has one goal in 7 games, and returned in one other game

            ....underlying stats down big as well

  4. The-Red-1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 11 hours ago

    But of a weird one guys and girls, thinking long term, who would you prefer, Bowen or Porro? I know they're different positions. But I can't afford both

    1. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Bowen if money isnt much of an issue

    2. gart888
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Porro probably. There are cheaper mids that I like similarly to Bowen. That doesn't really exist for Porro.

    3. Utopsis
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Porro for me

    4. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Porro

    5. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Vote Pedro!

    6. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Can you do Porro and Kudus because he looks like he's coming home early at this rate!

    7. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 9 hours ago

      Porro

    8. Ryan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 9 hours ago

      Bowan. Maddison will take set pieces off Porro when he returns and their defence is still terrible.

      1. St Pauli Walnuts
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 29 days ago

        Won't they share? Porro's set pieces are really good, would be harsh to take them off him altogether.

  5. wulfrunian
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 hours ago

    Alvarez owners what's your plan?

    1. gart888
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 hours ago

      Hold him until I turn him into Haaland.

      1. wulfrunian
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 hours ago

        Dgw25 is coming.If you keep him for gw22 it would be tough to sell him.

      2. Count of Monte Hristo
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 10 hours ago

        Shazam!

      3. Nate(U)dog(ie)
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 10 hours ago

        Are you feeding him a water stone?

    2. Yes Ndidi
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Keep until the double. Someone else will have to be Haaland

    3. Bushwhacker
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Sending him the “Darwin Nunez book of finishing” in the hope he’ll read it and at least improve a bit.

  6. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    If Ghana beat Egypt and Egypt finish 3rd in group then they probably play favourites Senegal in last 16 on 28/29 Jan and could be back in time for week 22 game v Chelsea……….

    1. Yes Ndidi
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Ifs and all that, but it is worth bearing in mind. He could be back before Haaland.

  7. The Pep Revolution
    • 12 Years

    Which one would you sell for KDB?

    A. Foden
    B. Gordon
    C. Saka
    D. Richarlison
    E. Palmer

    1. gart888
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Foden, but wait until KDB is starting games.

    2. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Foden. Just. Then Saka.

      1. Zenith UK
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        Said Foden instead of Saka to save MCI double-up

    3. Casual Player
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 9 hours ago

      Everyone would've told you to get Foden in last week, now it's get him out!

      1. Casual Player
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        I'd probably wait until KdB plays some decent minutes.

        He's not going to score 12 every bench cameo, more likely 1

                  LMS is so hard, I really rate it lol. 38 GWs with no screw up is mad.

                    GW16; I got 37, safety score was 39, the kicker?

                    Allison came back one game earlier than expected so Kelleher got 0 instead of (arguably) 2 points (Areola was injured, wrist injury).

                    Also every single player in my team blanked except for Salah (Haaland's first week out injured).

                    Gabriel(2), Tsimikas(2), Trippier(-1), Lascelles(-1)
                    Salah(13x2), Saka(2), Bowen(2), Gordon(2), Palmer(1)
                    Watkins(2)

                    What a week to go out...

        You have to be extremely good at FPL to finish top 2, that's all I know!

    I've been pondering my long-term team, and can afford to get to something like this, post 24/25. Would welcome thoughts, as it'll affect transfer planning:

    Areola/Dubravka
    Porro, Estupinan, Burn, Branthwaite, Lamptey
    Salah, Son, de Bruyne, Saka, Palmer
    Haaland, Solanke, Archer

    Getting to Salah, Son, KdB, and Haaland requires some sacrifices: neither premium defender (Trent or Trips) and Watkins out for Solanke. Is it worth it? Thoughts?

    1. Zenith UK
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 10 hours ago

      Saka > Gordon immediate change.

      That 3M allows you to do;
      Solanke > Watkins, Braintwaite & Lamptey > Doughty & Gusto, with some change
      Burn > Trippier & Braintwaite & Lamptey > Doughty & Gusto
      Archer > Isak?

      Also what's the update with Ederson, if out for a while Ortega could be a shout to bank another 0.4M?

      1. TheFridge
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 9 hours ago

        That's interesting, to be sure. Thanks, Zenith. Good shout.

        Any other thoughts? Really interested in having a long-term planning discussion.

        1. TheFridge
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 9 hours ago

          Any news on whether Barnes' likely return will create rotation risk for Gordon?

        2. Zenith UK
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 9 hours ago

          I've avoided Solanke throughout personally. I might consider him from GW27 onwards.

          I keep tinkering trying to get an unreal team (to the point of weekly benching headaches). The best I can manage are the following. Team 1 leaves 1.1M in the bank. Team 2 I'm 0.5M short (adding this as I'm sure someone with better TV or who hasn't ditched Salah yet - I did last week - could afford it);

          Areola, Ortega
          XXX, Trippier, Porro, Estupinan, Doughty
          Salah, Son, Bowen, Gordon, Palmer
          Watkins, XXX, XXX

          Team 1: Trent, Solanke, Joao Pedro
          Team 2: Gusto, Haaland, Semenyo

          1. TheFridge
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 8 hours ago

            I am sitting on something similar as an alternative to the KdB lineup:
            Areola, Dubravka
            Trippier, Estupinan, Porro, Burns, Lamptey
            Salah, Son, Saka, Bowen, Palmer
            Haaland, Watkins, Archer

            Preferences?

            1. Zenith UK
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 7 hours ago

              Gordon hasn't gone more than two weeks without hitting some kind of return. I'd rather him than Saka personally. Think you're missing out on Doughty unless you're maxed out on price. Otherwise only player missing is Trent, but not really possible with the prices of the players you have

    2. mrelpea
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 2 hours ago

      Agree with Zenith, downgrade Saka to improve various other parts of your team

    Joelinton could be out for the rest of the season. Another big loss for Newcastle.

    https://x.com/LukeEdwardsTele/status/1747006433952981406

    As per reports in Brazil, at the moment it’s looks like Joelinton requires surgery on a tendon in his groin which will be him ruled out for rest of the season. #nufc waiting for final assessment before proceeding with operation. More on

      Newcastle’s training sessions are usually intense. I watched one about 2 years ago under the same Manager.

      Half your squad can’t just get injured without other factors imo, Howe’s training session is crazy.

  12. have you seen cyan

      Yes, but I do have 8 viable attackers with multiple injuries to midfielders currently

      We'll get a decent look tomorrow. Wonder if he's in the squad.

      1. I Member
        • 8 Years

        Ruled out of tomorrow's game.

        1. gart888
          • 9 Years

          That was fast.

    2. Casual Player
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 9 hours ago

      I want him to have a rest now as have Isak as attacking sub!

      As it currently stands, good chance I get Cash (1) in while Isak (6) and Branthwaite (6) stay benched. Classic FPL

    4. Gegenpress
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 4 hours ago

      Where is this Bowen news coming from?

      I have him and NEED him to start so hoping it’s true as I saw he’s confirmed out for todays game

      1. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 hours ago

        Seen two sources, maybe linked

        https://x.com/jackrosser_/status/1746925899394478227?s=46&t=hAaaEgiQgheuiwBruEyFyw

        https://x.com/JacobSteinberg/status/1746935478115352786?s=20

        Wording is that they are hopeful he returns; I think it’s positive they’re even talking about it but anyone can hope a player is fit and this may have derived from a statement that said that him (and Paqueta) would be reviewed before Sunday.

        Nothing we can do but I’m quite hopeful, else Archer is waiting on the bench

        1. Gegenpress
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 2 hours ago

          Hopeful here too! I think he may pull through - Most reports are saying it's not as serious as first thought

        2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 2 hours ago

          Amazing really given two days ago I again read Paqueta was out for 2 months+. The first of those two sources is from The Sun though so even just on Bowen I'm extremely wary

      2. The Ilfordian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 2 hours ago

        For the avoidance of doubt, I’ve not seen anyone say he’ll be anywhere near tonight’s game

  14. have you seen cyan
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 8 hours ago

    I don't have the link but Werner basically told a reporter this:
    I like scoring goals, I want to score goals, but I now realise how I can important to the team in other ways, and I see why assists and my position are important. I want to get assists and help the team anyway I can.

    1. Eze Really?
      • 9 Years

      Standard media rubbish speak. No bearing on anything really.

  15. GoonerSteve
    • 14 Years
    3 months, 8 hours ago

    Took a hit to bring in Foden as thought Bowen was almost certainly out.
    Played Bowen anyway and benched Solanke, on the off chance.
    I have a horrible feeling Solanke is going to score against Liverpool and Bowen will now block it! The sooner I can focus on a fixed 11 the better in my opinion. I dread benching another Gusto 17pts or Palmer 18pts.

        Best manager last year was Unai Emery.

      Pep = Best Manager for Big Club with Big Budget (not everybody can do it!), Next best is Klopp

      Unai = Best Manager for a Mid Club with Mid'ish Talent, next best is Moyes

      Thomas Frank = Best Manager with bottom 6 Talent, next best is Di Zerbi

      If you made all these guys the Manager of Manchester United:

      Pep = He would quit by Christmas, to protect his reputation
      Unai = He would become a brutal meme and be fired by Christmas
      Frank = He would have all the "Stars" sitting in the stands or loaned-out and play with unknowns, but would be fired for not making the UCL

    If you had to sell one who would it be; Saka or Watkins?

    1. RICICLE
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 hours ago

      Watkins

    2. Walter White (WW)
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 5 hours ago

      Check how much they cost each & compare it with their total points.

      Shouldn’t be difficult to decide from there, is it?

    3. Camino Aleatorio
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Watkins was untouchable for a while

      Now you have Solanke and Toney to pair with Haaland (when he returns).

      Assumes that Toney comes back strong.

      Nkunku and Jackson still look like steaming garbage.

      1. Klopp's Kids

        Toney really needs to turn Brentford around. 5 losses in a row.

          Hes going to be charged on pure adrenaline on his return, think the time to own him is before 25 & not after it.

    Some recency bias picks to ponder:
    KDB score a goal and an assts in 20 odd minutes. A good play with a great performance so everyone is buying when:
    He advertises himself he is not ready to start a game,
    Will he get a Goal/.Assist every ten minute going forward? NO
    Richa scores again with the community saying "Ï told you so" Anyone looked at his actual involvement and when the players due back how he is affected?
    There are some subjective choices available and DGW's and BGW's on the horizon.
    Anyone with a decent TV will find it easier notwithstanding so many saying information is more important than TV. The are a few questionable pieces made by the content creators to the sheep.

      I might just roll with Alvarez so I don't need to make additional transfers. He's off set pieces and will get minutes reduced but can bench him the weeks other than the DGW.

      I like De Bruyne because his price is nice as a placeholder for Son and a huge upside. Bit early to get him now though.

          I randomly have Ortega so we'll see the extent on Ederson's injury but at the moment my plans are:

          GW22: Solanke>Haaland, Gabriel>C. Richards or Raya>Dubravka
          GW23: Save FT
          GW24: Bowen>Salah & Saka>McAtee
          GW25: Save FT
          GW26: Jota>Son, Trippier>Botman or Jota>Maddison

            News dependent: For me: (I have Toney)
            21 Martinelli to KDB and Son to Gross (11.5 mil ITB)
            22 Alvarez to Haaland (4.4ITB)
            23 Roll
            24 Saka to Salah if playing (.5 ITB)
            25 I have 2 FT's to get TAA and downgrade Watkins hopefully.

      I'm not sure patience is King this year, quite the opposite, most were resigned to owning Haaland, Salah & Son when they returned, throw KDB into the mix & maybe Trent & it's not going to be a season for low buying power.

      Problem is the big content creators are so scared of failing that they want to wait for as long as possible while 10m don't,those who blindly flow them are going to find it difficult in the latter part of the season to fit the key assets in which out compromises.

      I bought KDB at 10.2, fully expecting them to buy at 10.5 after bleeding value on players or even benching them because they are too wedded into keeping them for extra info.

      1. Eze Really?
        • 9 Years

        Well put.
        Both plusses and minuses.

        1. _Freddo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          3 months, 3 hours ago

          Back in the day the tactic was always build TV in the first half & benefit from it in the second half, this lot have reversed the thinking into bleeding value/buying higher and being over cautious through fear of failing while this years game seems more suited to the old style of playing due to the 'must have' premiums who have emerged.

          This is clear by the constant,, 'don't make early transfers because...' brigade who are using what influence they have to slow the market.

          Really hope KDB rises the full 3 times before deadline, hes 60% on his way to a second this week and third since Huddersfield, a Salah & Son drop along the way would be perfect too.

          1. Eze Really?
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 2 hours ago

            This wait for news thing has got out of hand. A large portion are lies anyway. Taking early transfer risks are usually reasonable, even with injury increases.
            It seems "Ï told you so" is rearing its ugly head to claim Brownie points for being right. Nobody ever says well done if you get the half rise in a couple of weeks and in a stronger position because of it,

        Too many to remember. Joe Az Mark Neil Andy all old Scout cast/Content creator guys so I still have soft spot for them.
        I most enjoy FML FPL these days because they don't pretend to be experts. The USA boys I cannot believe entertain me with English "soccer!"
        I was a member of Scout for many years but gambling adverts an scratching backs in the content creator community drove me away. ("hit the like and subscribe button" is as annoying as getting the kids to wash dishes)
        Someone poorly followed like James seems to be invited more and more into the fold. His arrogance over talking and self-righteous attitude gets to me. I love Suj though; it is obvious why he became the successful one.
        We all have our likes and dislike and it is up to the individual who he/she wants to follow.
        Human beings have shaped the world through stories like religion, currency, fascism, communism etc. Most of us follow the shepherds and FPL is no different. I over use the game for sure but is it not an amazement a game can impact lives the way it does?
        Sorry about the boring diatribe.

        1. Evil Greg
          • 14 Years
          3 months, 30 mins ago

          Planet FPL James doesn't come across at all badly to me. He works really hard, gets his facts right and pours a lot into his work.

          You know that he's an employee at Suj's company and now Suj pays him a full time wage to run Planet FPL for him? Instead of working at the boxing company he does FPL.

          Can we all have opinions we reenforce a little too strongly because we believe in something? Yes! (Currently I'm all for selling Saka and Watkins and getting KDB!)

          I also think the London accent tends to come across as arrogant and self-righteous or at least in the way you mean just as a default of that part of the world. A lot of people think those from Yorkshire from where I'm from sound quite unintelligent.

          Try giving Planet FPL another go, 'clash of the correspondents' video are one to watch rival fans giving insight into their team, can be pretty interesting sometimes. The latest chip strategy video is epic too.

          1. Eze Really?
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 mins ago

            I cannot really counter your reply. Maybe I am being harsh. It is an opinion maybe I should keep to myself to be fair. Yes I know Suj employs him and read between the lines on my comment.
            It could be me, but I cannot help thinking I detect inferences in his manner (Judgmental maybe). I might be wrong TBF but his subscribers are lower than the generation coming through. I do watch him but only if Suj is there. Granted, he does work hard and much of what he says adds value. I was a top tier patreon for some time and his sarcastic replies got the better of me eventually. I was very sick and in hospital for 6 months. Planet FPL was new then and following them gave me solace. My last sentence says it all really. He lifted me up and "slapped me down"

        Sounds like a lot captained Saka and seems like a few still have Arsenal defence (maybe some with double?) so I'd imagine that's the main one. Salah and TAA out means less interest there but still some have Nunez or punted on the likes of Jota. I have one in each game left so I'll be keeping an eye on them all

        1. The Ilfordian
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I have seen a manager in one of my leagues that used an early FT on getting Bowen and a later FT on selling him. So that would be fun.

      Nothing will compare to that time Son “tore” his hammy on Monday and had a double digit haul by Saturday.

      1. Eze Really?
        • 9 Years

        I did the double move myself with Son

      Need him to sit on the bench, yell at the Ref, get yellow card.

      (1) Confirms him for next week
      (2) Wipes out bench points for my rivals.

      Getting a yellow counts as participation! I don't know! I am asking?

  22. The-Red-1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 2 hours ago

    Long term (half an eye on 25), would you prefer:

    A) Gabriel, Saka, Bowen, Watkins
    B) Trippier, Salah, Rodri, Haaland?

    1. Eze Really?
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 1 hour ago

      IMO swap Trippier to Gabriel/ Doughty and upgrade Rodri

      1. The-Red-1
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 1 hour ago

        Upgrade Rodri to who?

        Tripper's run of fixtures after Villa look sublime though, can see him racking up some big scores

        1. Eze Really?
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 1 hour ago

          As I said IMO. Have you seen how has been playing recently? Someone you can afford rather than a defensive mid. Bernardo maybe?

          1. Sloopy
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 12 Years
            2 months, 29 days ago

            Rodri not as bad a pick imo. Looking at the xGI in the last 6 matches he is not far away from Foden and B. Silva. All in the range 2.5-3.0

      2. KunDogan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 1 hour ago

        Trippier has nice fixtures GW23 onwards though

        1. Eze Really?
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 42 mins ago

          So do many. good or bad fixtures seemed to make little difference. I am not saying a bad pick but a risk looking at recent performances

    2. Nate(U)dog(ie)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 1 hour ago

      Hard to gauge really because Haaland has been out so long and may miss more time, Bowen's availability isn't clear and we're not sure when Salah is back. I don't like Gabriel myself given Arsenal's issues (2 clean sheets in 10 and they have 3 away games in the next 4 with the home game being against Liverpool). Watkins I'm a bit unsure on but I think he's been unlucky with Villa missing key players but a lot are back now (Kamara and Tielemans). Villa dismantled Newcastle at VP at the end of last season and they'll surely be out for revenge after the 5-1 loss on the opening day so I think it's a good game for him given both team's styles

      I thought it would be one of the Roys, Race or Kent, for sure.

      Messi will still be winning it after he retires

        Is this dialogue from the leaked Four Divorces & A Christening script?

      Sadly the owners aren't that stupid.

      They need a footballer not a manager.
      Eddie has done wonders with the side he has. A big chunk of players still there were fighting relegation. Other sides have been blighted by injury but not to the same extent as Newcastle with Euro comps to contend with.
      I look at Joelinton and to a lesser extent, Almiron and how he has changed them for the better by big margins.
      Man City and Chelsea must be laughing how the goalposts were moved for Newcastle.

      A-League more likely! Western Sydney Wanderers.

      It's time for Mourinho to move into international management. The guy can win tournaments. Club management hasn't been kind to him in recentl years.

      I miss the RMTs, A or B questions, and people who never make any effort to respond to others.

      It feels like the olden days when people discussed on here as opposed to A or B

        Absolutely this.

    Neto or Alisson on a WC?

      Why not both?

      Probably Neto for obvious reasons.

    Timo's four shots in the box were a perfect showcase of his ineptitude.

    I've got Bowen or Solanke to play ...

    Who'd you prefer assuming Saka and Gross are okay.
