      not high

      Impossible to know

      I think there's something going on between DeZerbi and Estu rather than Estu simply losing his place.

      The fact that he didn't come on to replace Lamptey at half-time is quite telling, and suggests it's more than a simple loss of form.

    The prisoners have been informed they’ll be watching Everton v Crystal Palace tomorrow! The howling has begun!

      Ah, Mr Template, I wanted to raise with you what a mean trick it is for the Hall of Shame Tourney Cup to be starting in BGW29. It’s so incredibly nude! Can we have it moved?

      1. The Knights Template
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        I didn’t even know there was one!

          I think they happen automatically and start based on the number of players to play off for a winner in GW37?

            Interesting

          At the top of the league rankings you can toggle from ‘League’ to ‘Cup’

            Toggling complete, gw29 totally appropriate for the Hall of Shame!

    Can Ode cover Saka’s points? As a differential im my ML it would be great plus save funds for Salah and Son.

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Absolutely, no question*

    2. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      doubt it, he hasnt been a great FPL asset this year

    3. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      No and particularly with Saka on pens

    4. dennis the menace
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Saka is the one to own, great form and pens.. Adding Ode or a Martinelli as a second Arsenal mid would be the play here to make up ground.

      The race to 10 sin-binnings...

      It looks like I can sin-bin myself actually. Interesting

    Any news on trent injury Will Beadley get some gametime now do you think?
    Thanks

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Trent is out for a few more weeks at least. It's Bradley's spot to lose but he could share some minutes with Gomez.

      1. Everyday im Schneiderlin
        • 10 Years

        Thanks i currently have gomez bit risky having both?

    2. CONNERS

      Watch out, Beadley's about.

    I'm still trying to work out why Martinelli had his assist removed for Odegaard's goal. It's a clean pass with the outside of his boot. His ownership isn't high enough for it to be an issue.

    1. AllThePies
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Ditto with Reguilon keeping his - I thought significant deflections (including saved shots like this) weren't assists these days?

      Surely 'tis a fix!!

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        "Players who have their shots saved, blocked by a defender or denied by the woodwork can earn an assist if the ball then falls to a team-mate to score or results in an own goal. The shot does not have to be on target to result in an assist.

        "Touches or deflections from an opponent before the rebound do not cancel out the assist unless there is more than one that significantly changes the trajectory or power of the first failed shot on goal."

        1. AllThePies
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Oh, so the opposite of what I thought... I'm sure it changes year on year, in my defence!

          Thank you!

          1. Skonto Rigga
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            They could definitely make it clearer!

      Apparently, it takes a "significant deflection" off Assignon (the Burnley defender directly in front of Martinelli), almost immediately after the ball is released, even though it looks like a clean pass. They're privy to more angles than we are so they must have a telling one.

      When are you coming back to save the scout cast, Granny?

      Viewing figures continue to slide and Andy keeps gobbling up the market share.

        Good luck to Andy

          No one would have watched his first YouTube stream if it hadn't been for scout and yet he has shown the scout zero loyalty by signing up with the hub.

  7. dansmith1985

    Any chance of Adebayo playing against Liverpool?

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      I’m certain he will, huzzah!*

    2. Holmes
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      apparently a hamstring, unlikely

  8. Atimis
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Actually instead of keeping FT, just Darwin to Solanke and bench Taylor? Would like to get Hojlund but probably no place for him(?)

    Martinez
    Gabriel/Estu/Maguire/Taylor
    KDB/Saka/Foden/Bailey
    Haaland/Watkins

    Keheller/Porro/Richa/Darwin

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Seems sensible.

    2. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Im thinking Solanke too instead of Hojlund, you'll be ditching him for Solanke anyway. Best plan ahead. City not exactly keeping clean sheets either

    This estu is really damn annoying. Was hopping to do 1 transfer to have 10 starting players… but now i dont even know if he will start

    1. The Knights Template
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Many in the same boat, including mineself. Will wait for pressers.

    2. TKC07
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      If he's benched, gets 1 point.. If he starts, ends up with 0 points. (Either concede many goals, YC or subbed off at HT)..

    3. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Just play him id say, he might get a late assist from sub appearance. Also Lamptey a bit injury prone, could easily get his place back

  10. hazza44
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Hey all,

    Any recommended transfers? Few issues. 1FT £1.6 ITB. Will have to take a hit.

    Dubruv (Turner)
    Gabriel Estu Ake (Porro Guehi)
    Saka Richy Foden Palmer (Jota)
    Watkins Haaland (C) Darwin (VC)

    Cheers.

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Jota injury seems long term. Jota > Neto?

    2. STHH
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      I'd wait until the press conference ahead of the midweek Liverpool match and see if Jota and Darwin can be ditched. Solanke is a must for two weeks' time and there are multiple midfield options to be had if you want them - Neto, Hwang, Garnacho, Adingra, KDB.

  11. dshv
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Jota to

    Hwang/Neto or Garnacho ??

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Neto.

    2. El Presidente
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Bailey

    3. Stimps
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Neto

  12. The Mandalorian
    • 11 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    You either FH in 29 or WC in 30 but either way you're playing a major chip.

    I'd rather FH 29 so I can bring in Salah and Son in 27 and field the strongest team which is the aim of FPL.

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Leaning towards this also...

    2. Bullet Eder
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      And WC in 27 you mean?

      1. The Mandalorian
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        No need to WC I already have funds for Son/Salah

        1. Nomar
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 14 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I am contemplating WC in 27 for this very reason.

          I can get Salah and Son with 2 FT (means losing KdB but having Haaland softens the blow) but WC will allow me to strengthen other positions at the same time.

  13. AzzaroMax99
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Is Regulion nailed?

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

      Think so. For the Spurs game (unavailable against parent club) they had Lewis-Potter LWB which seems like an emergency-only option

      1. Skonto Rigga
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Aye and Rico Henry is likely out for the season, too. Aaron Hickey can play at LWB but is more likely to displace Roerslev on the right, if and when he's back from injury.

  14. The Iceman
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Morning all. In order to field XI next week are the below transfers worthwhile:

    Jota > Saka
    Darwin > Hojlund (-4)

    Y/N?

    1. YoungPretender
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      I’m considering these exact moves in order to field 10 for a -4.

      Have a decision to make as to whether I take a -8 for 11…

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

    Was planning on Darwin to Solanke this week which gives me 11 (although doubts over Estupinan & Tosin). However I'm now wondering whether Richarlison > Hee Chan is the move, and then Solanke in a couple of weeks.

    Thoughts?

    1. The Iceman
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Solanke could wait a week or two IMO.

  16. CRAZY TRAIN
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 24 days ago

    Best budget defender in the game to cover up to gw30 for under 4.7? Looking at Senesi, great fixtures and poss dgw 29 right?.

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

      Confirmed DGW27; possible DGW34 (avl wol). Will only have a fixture in 29 if Bournemouth lose to Leicester & Wolves lose to Brighton in FA Cup. But its a nice fixture run, playable from 27-32

      1. CRAZY TRAIN
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Thanks for the advice, very helpful

      2. HashAttack
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        DGW28, not 27

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

          Oops yeah this is correct, my bad

  17. The Tonberry
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Worth taking a -4 to bring in Dawson for Konsa? Would allow me to bench Gordon for BGW26 and have a full XI

    • FCH
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 24 days ago

      Best midfielder below 5.7M:
      A - D Luiz
      B - Garnacho
      C - Hee / Neto
      D - Adingra
      E - ?

      1. dennis the menace
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 24 days ago

        I’m going Hee Chan this week, already own Garnacho. So many good chap options atm.

        1. FCH
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Thanks mate!
          Yeah Garnacho is in my mind atm..

    • boc610

      chances of bradley start on wed? he was brilliant against brentford but that could mean he will get a start in final and is rested v luton

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

        Assuming Tsimikas isn't ready to start yet, I guess one of Bradley / Robbo starts again, with Gomez covering the other.

    • sankalparora07
        3 months, 24 days ago

        Hwang or Neto? I really like Neto but Hwang on pens.... really confused

        1. Philosopher's Stones
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          Same issue. Will probably go down to the wire.

        2. CONNERS
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 24 days ago

          I'll probably go with Hwang. Playing up top, on pens and a bit cheaper too.

        Want to have fun making a transfer?

        Whoa whoa whoa, matey, not so fast, you have to have your weekly read of this first. Be glad when we pass the 10 yellow card ban cut off and the fun police can have a little nap for another season.

        Raya - Areola
        Gabriel - Virgil - Walker - Estupinian - Gusto
        Jota - Foden - Saka - Palmer - Garnacho
        Watkins - Haaland - Solanke

        2 FT

        Currently 1900 overall but chips tend to be a downfall so what chip strategy would you guys do with this team.

        Have FH, WC and Bench Boost. Used Triple captain this week

          Looks pretty straightforward? Jota & Estupiñan out

            Maybe you can look at BB28 then WC out of it?

            Why sell Esupinian? He's got a fixture in 26.

                3 months, 24 days ago

                He's being rotated, though.

                His team does anyway

            Use your transfers then pick a chip strategy after FAC results which is before 27 deadline

          Thoughts of Saliba or Pau in for Lascelles and Douglas for Jota for a hit?

          Areola
          Reguilon Lascelles Gabriel
          Foden KDB Saka Jota Gordon
          Watkins Haaland

          Dubravka Colwill Doughty Darwin

            Sounds like a plan given you need a defender and an attacker.

              Pretty straightforward isn’t it, getting the right ones is the difficult part 😆

          2. Tonyawesome69
            • 5 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            You might not need to sell Lascelles depending on Schar's injury

            1. Gazza2000
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 12 Years
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Yeah might keep him if Schar is out but he probably need to go anyway to if I want to avoid the FH in 29.

          Is anyone else losing patience with Estupinian?

            3 months, 24 days ago

            Frustrating, I plan to hold, I think he has done a few things to annoy De Zerbi but I’m confident he will win his place back. I’ll likely hold until WC30 and sell then if things haven’t improved

          2. The Tonberry
              3 months, 24 days ago

              Yes but shifting out injured players and GW26 blankers to have 11 starters is more of a priority than the 1 point cameos from the Perv which is currently better than 0 points from those not playing.

            Jota to Saka
            AND
            Garnacho to Hwang?

            Yay or nay?
            Would have to do today otherwise won't be able to afford

              Garnacho should have hauled yesterday and has Fulham at home next - wouldn't be looking to get rid now (especially not for a hit)

              Arsenal have a midweek UCL game

              Just do Saka one

          4. HashAttack

            FH draft for gw26 - any good?

            Martinez
            Dalot, Ait-Nouri, Mitchell
            Saka, Neto, Hee Chan, KDB
            Watkins, Toney, Haaland

            Onana, Mitoma, Saliba, Moreno

            Close between Hojlund (FUL) and Toney (whu) - but West Ham look like a basket case at the moment and gives me a player for the last match of the gw

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

              Hojlund & Toney (I know, the Watkins brigade won't like it...)

              Ballon Dawson over Ait Nouri maybe? SHU still leaking from set pieces

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

                Not many defenders have scored v SHU - Moreno, Doughty, VVD, Tomiyasu, Dalot, Burn & Botman ... seems left sided defenders are the most likely to score

          5. I Member
            • 8 Years
            3 months, 24 days ago

            Not that it matters but why aren't Jota and Darwin flagged?

              Likely waiting for a concrete update from the press conference tomorrow. Liverpool blank in GW26 so it's not like anyone would be bringing in their players this week anyway.

              *checks most Transfers In for Gameweek 26*

              oh

            A couple of press conferences today ahead of Tuesday's game (times in GMT):

            12.30pm - Guardiola
            1.30pm - Frank

            The big one from Klopp tomorrow.

              Wonder if the funeral will be raised in the press conference? Strange how Haaland broke triple captain records with a lack of clarity on that.
