    Who's the pool defender most likely to start both games in the double gw?...VVD?

        Welcome to Australia!

          I would love to go, just for the chance to be on "Border Security" - I would tick "no" to having brought any food with me, whilst having a suitcase full of fermented herring and foie gras.

            I went to Australia once. On the flight they gave me an apple with lunch. I thought great I'll save that tasty treat for later, and stuck it in my bag.
            When we landed I went through check out, forgetting about the apple. They searched my bag and found it. Pulling me into a side room and questioning me for an hour, and gave a fine of $200.
            I haven't been back since.

              Oh. And VVD.

    Could be a few bench boosts being played this week due to the Doubles, a lot of decent players with good fixtures being forced onto the bench…

    Morning all, can I get some opinions on TAA, Palmer > Saliba, KDB for -4?

    Need a defender for 26, Reguilon is another option but bad fixtures. I already have Gabriel but the double could work?

    Areola Dubravka
    Gabriel TAA Lascelles Porro Kabore
    Richarlison Jota Foden KDB Palmer
    Adebayo Watkins Haaland

    How would you navigate DGW25 and BGW26 with this team?
    DGW25
    6 DGW players but I am thinking of Palmer to Diaz to have more Liverpool cover. Will also get in someone playing BGW26.

    For BGW26 I currently have 6 players for this but will have another one after the hit this week and will take another hit going into the week to give me two more. Is this too many hits and is 9 players enough?

    Would appreciate any thoughts as I am behind in my mini leagues.

    Yes or no ?

    1. basilfawlty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      I’d wait for news on TAA and Salah. I’m not convinced a City defender is worth it.

    2. Haa-lala-land
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I dunno. A -4 just to bench Garnacho Vs Luton doest sound too good

    Is taking a -4 or -8 then bench boosting a waste ? Or do we see it as a good way to offset the hit? Especially if we are bringing in a Dgw player for non starter ? It seems
    It could pay for itself but on the other hand it feels like a waste . Any thoughts ?

    1. Tonyawesome69
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Depends who you are bringing in. Are you potentially taking a hit to remove them in 26

      1. MrJobby
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Mmm good point actually . I forgot there is blank game week after so I think I’ll just save my chips for a later game week

    Think I'll get BB out of the way. No injuries, two FT's. Blow a trade on Turner, for a decent bench I thought? Plan is later on Alvarez becomes Solanke, then I switch to 3-5-2 and get Salah back with a GW29/30 wildcard.

    Reckon Haaland will play both, but with reduced minutes. Can't decide who to bench, and I fancy Palmer to score at City..the old club narrative. Not sure on Ode>Foden or something else for my second trade? Foden gives me 10 players next week if I sell Richy.

    Areola

    Need some advice here please:
    2FT 0.1 itb
    Dubrav
    Gab, Porro, TAA
    Richi, Foden, Kdb, Gordon
    Darwin, Haaland, Watkins
    (Areola, Palmer, Moreno, Gusto)

    Options I have come up with:
    A) TAA and Gordon to Reguillon and Jota
    B) TAA and Gordon to Konate and Saka
    C) TAA, Gordon and Watkins to VVD, Jota and Toney
    D) TAA and Gordon to Saka and a 5.7mil Def who plays in 26. Gives me 9 for gw26.

    Or any other suggestions?
    Will probably be TC on Haaland this week.

    Guys guess taa will miss out or get reduced mins especially since its a reoccurring thing so need help. 2.4m itb.

    Dub areola
    Taa porro gabriel konsa taylor
    Saka foden richy gordon palmer
    Haaland darwin watkins

    A) Taa palmer to reguilon kdb(can get 11 in 26 with a free including taylor)
    B)Taa palmer to Vvd jota(can oly get 10 with a hit and that includes taylor).

    Leaning towards A but I fear jota..

    1. basilfawlty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’m considering “A” as well but wonder if Saliba is a better option than Reguilon

  11. Derbz87
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Is the bench boost not just a rubbish chip this season anyway? The way I see it you get to play whichever one of your attacking 8 you benched and then all your defenders and both your keepers but trying to predict how the defenders and keepers will get on is a minefield so you could use it whenever really and it all boils down to luck on that front. Palmer's on my bench this week and that's not a great fixture for them so triple captain was a no brainer.

    1. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      It's only as good as your squad. It's most effective when your benched players are good and have decent fixtures, but that's a very rare situation to find yourself in, hence why it tends to be average for most.

      1. Derbz87
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I think my argument is probably that everyone's squad will be lacking due to the fact there aren't 5 good defenders most weeks and the keepers are just bonkers. Find a week where your attacking 8 all have half decent games, your defenders and keepers are all nailed and just hope for the best. Looks a nice week for a lot of the popular defenders but you just know some of the likely ones will be massive let downs and clean sheets very hard to come by, just as likely through sheer luck they'll do better on a less optimal fixture week.

    2. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      No1 this GW had Bruno G on his bench for a 15pts, very lucky to say the least

  12. x.jim.x
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Does Saka score 4+ points more than Gordon next week? Only 1 goal in the last 14 starts for the latter.

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      This is why I'm thinking of switching. I got rid of Saka to fund kdb and it has not been nice...with TAA injury I can fund his return for Gordon and I just think Arsenal Vs Newcastle form is an easy pick and Saka is clearly flying at the moment so it's a decent move.

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        And yes, I think he scores more than 4 more than Gordon. But obviously anything can happen!

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Would do it now and just forget about it if it wasn't for the bloody Champions League!

    2. Yozzer
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Gordon could be playing up front Vs a leaky Bou defence, at home where he often returns. No way for a -4

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Did Wilson get injured again?

        Saka is a better player, playing for a better team versus a worse team, at home where he often returns. He's got pens too and an insane ownership, which is a rank killer.

        1. Hairy Potter
          • 9 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Wilson hurt his arm/shoulder wrestling with a Forest defender. Howe mentioned it after the game, but not sure he's a doubt for the weekend.

    3. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I took Gordon out for Saka.. I made a big mistake on my WC

      1. x.jim.x
        • 9 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Didn't wildcard, but I took him out for De Bruyne, who has since amassed as many points in 3 weeks as Saka did yesterday (probably).

        1. Warby84
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 11 days ago

          Get him back

          1. x.jim.x
            • 9 Years
            3 months, 11 days ago

            Thinking of doing TAA + Richarlison --> Reguilon(?) + Jota, with the Saka move as a bonus hit. Good to know I'm not mad for thinking it.

    4. Hairy Potter
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'd go Saka

    Scrolling through comments makes me think I’m the only person who doesn’t have any Arsenal defenders or Saka! Or maybe we’re all making ourselves scarce today.

    1. The Mentaculus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 2 Years

      Best avoid livefpl for now, Penguin. I had no players in yesterday's games & the red arrow is brutal. No Palmer tonight either yay 😥

    2. El_Matador
      • 12 Years

      If it makes you feel any better Gabriel is locked on my bench and I got a big fat 0 for Estupinian!

    3. Warby84
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I just bought Saka in for a hit, took out on WC and massively regretted it..

  14. The Mighty Whites
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Two questions:

    Bench one of Gordon, Gross or Watkins?

    Play Porro or bring in Reguillon for Konsa and start him?

    1. El_Matador
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Wouldn't like to bench any of those. Bench boost?

  15. El_Matador
    • 12 Years

    Ederson
    VVD Tripps Estu
    Diaz Neto Gordon Saka
    Haaland Alvarez Watkins

    Dubz Gabriel Palmer Taylor

    1.8 ITB. Thinking I'm set for DGW and can roll my FT to cover the blank afterwards and help plan for Bournemouth's DGW.

    Would you use the triple on Haaland this week?

  16. estheblessed
    • 9 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Is TAA definitely out? I must admit I keep wanting to sell him due to how much money is invested there.

    1. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      no fresh updates yet but looks like he might not be able to play both

    2. Exeterslowly
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’ve transferred him out to take advantage of the price drop. I’ve seen reports that he will be out for 2-3 weeks and on another site 2 months. Either way he will not make double gameweek

      1. Exeterslowly
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        I’m more concerned about Salah. Will he make it or not. It does look like he might make the second game of the double but not sure.

  17. More Cowbell
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 14 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Guys what is the thinking on transferring our Spurs players this GW to players with doubles:

    1) Fine move - doublers have 2 fixtures and Spurs blank in GW26 anyway

    2) Risky - Porro/Richarlison vs WOL could easily outscore the doublers

    3) Meh - probably ok using free transfers, but wouldn't take a hit

    2. I Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I don't like it because of GW29 but if you're planning to use a chip to navigate that then selling Spurs players is okay. I'll be playing Richarlison and benching Porro.

  18. Gazwaz80

    Hi all,
    Bench boost Dubravka NFO (A) Groß SHU (A) Porro Wol (H) Branthwaite CRY (H)
    Or T/C Haaland?
    Cheers…

    1. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years

      I'd prob TC Haaland still, but not the worst BB i've seen

    2. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Definitely BB

      1. Gazwaz80

      We are all TC ing Haaland

    4. BoroPhil
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      that's a tempter of a bench boost.

    5. GoonerSteve
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Donyou mean Areola not Dubravka, as it is West Ham that have NFO away?

      I'd go TC

  19. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    Thoughts on getting Ake? I'm going through potential TAA replacements and not sure I want to go with VVD due to the blank (as would have to keep Porro now). Could also consider Reguilon but mostly due to the number of fixtures and low price. Maybe Tripp or Saliba? But no DGW and blank in 29.

    1. Aster
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I would go for Ake

    2. Gazwaz80
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I’ve put Ake in and hoping he plays twice, definitely one of the most nailed City defenders and can score goals…

    3. Mayor of Flair
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm thinking the exact same, think I'll go for him.

    4. Yozzer
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      I'm going for another Arsenal defender. Check the fixtures

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        Just BGW29 bothers me as not decided if I will FH/WC yet so Ake has one more fixture until that

    5. hazza44
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Considering the same for TAA over VVD. Also one less blank in GW26 if i go Ake.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        That's the point, keeping Porro need to offload some blanker

    6. theplayer
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      City defenders usually just end up in disappointment and misery with rotation. See Walker for an example of this. Everyone thought he was the nailed one and has been benched twice recently.

      1. Atimis
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        The only thing that stops me from getting Ake right now, will se how the CL goes

  20. Aster
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 11 days ago

    What do you think about my DGw 25 team? Anything to change?

    4 itb, 1 Ft
    Areola - Turner

    Udogie - Estupinan - Gabriel (Moreno, Schar)

    Saka - Jota - Foden - Richarlison- (Palmer)

    Solanke - Alvarez - Haaland

    Was thinking Solanke to Darwin?

    1. Atimis
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Could work out but you will defo want him back for GW27 so plan accordingly

    2. More Cowbell
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 11 days ago

      Move looks ok for this GW, but think about:
      a) BGW 26- as it stands you've got 2 starting midfielders (Solanke means 1 less starter)
      b) You'll want Solanke back for his nice double in 28

      1. More Cowbell
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 14 Years
        3 months, 11 days ago

        *transferring Solanke means...

    Woe and misery.

    Decided to take a -8 on KDB benching news (Watkins>Haaland(c), KDB>Garnacho)……

    Transfer went through but site glitched and team didn’t save! Garnacho started with Haaland on bench and Jota captain.

    -25 points

  24. Ahsieuwbb
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 11 days ago

    I’m going to transfer out Joao Pedro for a cheaper striker - do I go for Morris/Adebayo or Maupay?

    Prefer Luton’s fixtures in the medium term, but blank in 26 will mean I only start with 10. Brentford will play in 26, but with Wissa back from afcon will Maupay be benched anyway?

    1. Warby84

      Adebayo if any..

      What about Ait-Nouri has a nice 26

    Think Robertson is back?

    30, 30, 90 and looked very good, think I’m ready to take a risk..

      I am contemplating. Between him and VVD for me.

      I think he'll play one of the games with Gomez playing the other. Bit tricky with the Carabao final coming up.

        He might get 120mins

          That could be 90 + 30 though. I'd just go Van Dijk for that money - 180 mins + headers

      I think Robbo/Tsimikas will share mins before cup final

    Flekken* (Dubravka)
    TAA*, Doughty*, Gabriel, Estu (Konsa)
    Foden*, Saka, Jota* (Andreas, Palmer)
    Solanke, HaalandC*, Watkins

    6 doublers, 1FT, £0.7m

    a) play as is and roll
    b) Konsa --> Man C defender
    c) Palmer --> Rodri
    d) something else

    (b/c) probably mean Estu is benched.
