    Reckon this fun bunch will reach double figures?

    Areola
    Trippier - Saliba - Estupinan
    KdB - Saka - Foden - Gordon
    Haaland (c) - Watkins (vc) - Solanke

    Dubravka - Taylor - Palmer* - Bradley*

    0.0m ITB, 0 x FT, G2G?

      This looks super strong for this week. If you don't get a big green arrow you're pretty unlucky.

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Required a hit (Darwin & Jota > Saka & Solanke), but had four big red arrows in a row lol...

      After the last few weeks it has become apparent that I have absolutely no idea what will do well, but looks more than decent to me.

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Yep, I've totally lost my touch....but then again, my planning is very loose these days

          Likewise, but really enjoying the unpredictability of this season. It’s keeping it interesting and loads of the usual high scorers (in terms of managers) aren’t doing as well.
          Good to mix it up!

          Just not when you use your TC on a “banker” last weekend

      sheesh I hate the feeling when you've got attackers vs. defenders

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Agreed, but BGWs do it more than ever and difficult to avoid...

        1. Oz lotto
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          agree. you have done well to put that together but I wouldn't be holding my breath for a big green arrow with some of the things that have to go right there

          1. Oz lotto
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            actually. that's a dumb thing for me to say. rank dependent but if inside 300-400k I think that'll be a par team.

          2. Jafooli
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            I never expect a decent score or rank...easiest way of handling the inevitable letdown....

    No replies sorrry.
    Guys so this is the situation right now. Now need your suggestions.

    Areola
    Saliba gabriel taylor
    Kdb foden saka gordon
    Watkins haaland darwin*

    Dub konsa richy doughty

    A)darwin to solanke free and take kdb points whatever it is. Benched or not.

    B)Darwin kdb to solanke hwang for a hit

    1. gart888
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A easily

    2. Oz lotto
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I wouldn't be taking hits to get in Hwang, unless there is news KDB is a no chance...

    3. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Just A. Kev could get 10 mins and still get double figures.

    4. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      A

  3. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    GK have dropped of the first Transfers/All Players/Total Points altogether and only three defenders (Trippier, TAA & Saliba) listed (the only three over 100pts)

    Defence options have all but died this season. Even uber-cheapos don't see worth it....

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Absolutely everything is happening in midfield, with a handful of forwards contributing...time for the game to allow a greater range of formation changes?

      1. Fulchester's New Centr…
        • 6 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Defenders all cheaper next year? Not like they are going to allow the old all-out attack as a regular formation.

        1. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          Maybe offer a GK-1-8-1 type formation?

      2. Oz lotto
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        no. I don't mind the idea of a utility position on the bench that means you can carry one more of each outfield position (with the sacrifice of another)... but the formation set up is fine and what makes the game a challenge if everything is happening in one spot

        1. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          A utility bencher would be fun, someone who can basically go on for any position...

          1. Oz lotto
            • 12 Years
            3 months, 4 days ago

            yeah but you would need to make sure it's players who actually are versatile in real life... your gross/milner types or players who are clearly capable of OOP

            1. Jafooli
              • 12 Years
              3 months, 4 days ago

              Agreed...

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        I can't see them changing the format that much. It's the same for everyone. I would just get rid of the chips.

      All the extra time added on reduces CSs and increases injuries. It also makes it more entertaining for the neutral

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        That's a very good point about ET and CS busting/increased goals...wonder if defs are also getting subbed more before 60mins these days?

    3. have you seen cyan
      • 4 Years

      nothing needs changing in FPL, teams need to learn how to defend.

    i know were at the mercy of Peps roulette, but with the FA cup 5thh round looming reckon KDB/Foden will be rested? looking at Doku/ silva for a cheeky differential?

    1. Oz lotto
      • 12 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I have been waiting for the Foden benching for a while but think he will rest in the FA cup. Silva is always a good differential but I don't think Doku will be 'needed' as cherries aren't a side that play a low block that needs a byline merchant to unlock. Bobb a little more versatile and think Pep might stick with him and play Doku in the FA cup

      1. Dr.Acula
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 4 days ago

        been flirting with Bobb too. wud be an interesting pick. his minutes severely puts me off tho

    I feel like we need a bit of a 'why not' or 'pulse check' segment these days. Scout Network hit me up for a content creator position. Someone to present some contrary views and be the 'anti-hype' guy.

    I have a less than charming Australian accent, a busy job and a 3 month old but think I could be an asset to the team.

      I reckon go for it. Start a Youtube channel and see where it goes. Thats kind of how The Wire started. Then Scout snapped them up.

      I reckon a 'down under' podcast is well overdue. The deadzone is typically anti-hype as it should be.

        would you be interested?

          An Australian & NZer duo, sure. Could be fun.

            Don't mention the underarm incident. I did once, but I think I got away with it.

    1. Jafooli
      • 12 Years

      A for me..

  7. Jafooli
    • 12 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    In real football, has anyone ever worked out the cost per playing minute of a player? Would be interesting to see Martial's return o. Investment, or to put it another way, how much paid for each minute at work/on the pitch...

    1. DGW blindness is for Kinnea…
      • 10 Years

      In any other line of work there would an inquiry over fraudulent use of wealth.
      It's the rich people from Essex paying his wages anyway

      1. Jafooli
        • 12 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Imagine turning up to work for 439mins since August 2023 lol...and that's following 207mins (22/23) & 970 (21/22) at work the previous two seasons....

        1. Jafooli
          • 12 Years
          3 months, 4 days ago

          439 mins is 7.3hrs, not even a single full days work in seven months lol...

            Maybe Ten Haag has been told to curb Martial's minutes in case his Balon D'or clause is triggered.
            In years gone by his career would be Manchester United, West Ham, Fenerbache, Seville, Nice, Stoke, Panathanikos.

                Actually, think my team, Partick Thistle is the final resting place...

  8. Scalper
    • 7 Years

    WC activated!!!!

    Areola (Kelleher)
    Gabriel Saliba Dalot Moreno (Bradley)
    KDB Saka Hwang (son Palmer)
    Haaland Solanke Watkins

    Dalot > Sensi GW27 then…

    BENCH BOOST GW27!!!

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      If it is for one week only, rather Ait-Nouri or Ballon D'awson than Dalot. I know that Fulham are rubbish without Palhinha, but so are Utd without Shaw, Hojlund, Martinez.

  9. marpy016

  11. Jinswick
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 13 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Whatcha reckon?

    A) Palmer -> Hwang (SHU)
    B) Darwin -> Solanke (MCY)
    C) Something else (ideas welcome!)

    A) has the better fixture but I’ll definitely be wanting B) for 28. Will likely FH29.

    Areola
    Gabriel, Estupinan, Burn
    KDB, Saka, Foden, Gordon
    Haaland, Watkins

    Turner, Porro, Bradley, Palmer, Darwin

    Who should I bench in mid/fwds? Currently Solanke but it feels so wrong lol - well maybe Pep will sort it out for me but just wondering what you'd do? Thanks!

    Leno (Kelleher)
    Lamptey - Gabriel - Senesi (Doughty - Bradley)
    KDB - Saka - Foden - Gross - Hwang
    Watkins - Haaland (Solanke)

    1. Philosopher's Stones
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Yeah, Solanke of those lot

    2. NZREDS
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      I’m in the exact same predicament with the same midd and forwards, benching Solanke but live to regret it

      1. NZREDS
        • 10 Years
        3 months, 4 days ago

        Could live*

    3. Podorsky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 14 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Similar predicament, bench Solanke or Gordon?

  13. Philosopher's Stones
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Bench one

    A: Solanke
    B: Estu
    C: Taylor

    1. NZREDS
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Taylor but only in the hope pervis doesn’t get 16 mins! Wouldn’t bench Solanke over the other two, if anyone’s gonna score against city it will likely be him

  14. Jamb0
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 4 days ago

    Team for the week… anything worth a -4?

    Areola (BRE)
    Gabriel (NEW) Saliba (NEW) Taylor (cry)
    Saka (NEW) KDB (bou) Foden (bou) Richarlison (-)
    Haaland (bou) Solanke (MCI) Watkins (NFO)

    Dubravka (avl) Palmer (-) Kabore (-) Doughty (-)

    1. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 6 Years
      3 months, 4 days ago

      Cash to swap Kabore for someone who will play this week and 29 (depending on your future plans)?

    Do people think Citeh have been more than a bit laboured in attack lately? I'm not sure they are going to suddenly snap out of it away to Bournemouth. Then you look at the way Arsenal are playing (and Newcastle defence) and I'm beginning to think Saka represents the perfect opportunity to go against Haaland. Thoughts?
